Activation and Safety

  • BLUEZONE™ Technology
    When a person or object is detected in the approach area, the sensor activates the door and turns on the BLUEZONE™ that detects through the threshold. The sensor holds the door in the open position for as long as someone remains in the detection area. Once the area is clear, the BLUEZONE™ ignores the door panels and allows the door to safely close.
    This row is automatically shut off once the whole of the presence detection area has cleared and as soon as the doors start to close. The installation of safety beams is no longer mandatory. The OPTEX OAM-DUAL series has been safety-tested and approved by the German test organization TÜV in compliance with the German DIN 18650:2010 and European Norm EN 16005.
  • Motion Detection
    The large microwave motion detection area provides rapid detection of any traffic, approaching from any angle, which allows the door to open conveniently. The presence and motion detection areas can be adjusted independently. By selecting a dipswitch the active infrared detection area can be set to safety only or to safety and activation. The uni-directional function allows the door to close faster when traffic is moving away from the door, contributing to significant energy saving.
  • Easy Installation
    Installation time can be minimized using the easily set switches and shutters, meaning the sensor can be quickly adjusted for many different applications. The use of an OPTEX Infrared finder is recommended to adjust the presence detection area.
