Which sensors are used by automatic doors?

tipos de sensores

The sensor is one of the most important components of an automatic door. It is responsible for making the door panels open or close without the need for physical contact or a key, as well as being a crucial security element for preventing impact and entrapment.

Manusa has a wide range of sensors, which are adapted to the needs of each customer. But what kind of sensors are there?

On the one hand, there is the proximity sensor, which works just by placing your hand close to the door and without touching it. This sensor is usually installed in areas where hygiene is an important requirement, as it prevents physical contact and the possible transmission of bacteria or viruses.

On the other hand, movement sensors are able to detect the direction the user is approaching from, which means that the door remains open for less time, since by detecting the direction of movement, the door closes more quickly and the opening time is shorter.

If in addition to movement we want to add an extra security feature, at Manusa we also have hybrid movement and presence sensors, aimed not only at opening the door, but also at preventing people who are about to pass through it from suffering any kind of accident, impact or entrapment. The door opens when a person is moving towards the door or if a person or an object is standing in the detection zone. This provides a high level of security as the door will not close until the area detected by the sensor is completely empty. It is a perfect choice for emergency doors, or entrances to buildings where there is a high number of people passing through, such as entrances to hospitals, hotels, or shops.
