A new door-mounted sensor for low-energy doors has been added to the company’s Acugard line of swing door sensors. The Acugard 3 LE — designed to provide affordable protection — is a bar type sensor that can be mounted on the approach side of the door to prevent it from closing on slower moving traffic, until the person is through the entrance and completely out of the path of the door. The sensor can also be mounted on the swing side to stop the door from opening in the event that someone is in the swing path while a pedestrian is approaching.

The sensor handles AC or DC power sources allowing seamless interface with the company’s Gyro Tech low-energy, ADA GT 710 and GT 500 swing doors and the low-energy equipment of other manufacturers. Multiple time delay settings allow installers to adjust for the varying requirements of the application such as hold-open time. The detection pattern depth is also adjustable. The sensor exceeds ANSI/BHMA standard for safety.

The Acugard 3 System for full power doors is also available. It consists of two door-mounted sensors, and one header-mounted Acumotion A sensor. Other sensors are available from the company, including the Acuvision Learning Sensor System, the Acumotion A Microwave/Infrared Hybrid Sensor and the Acusensor 1B for slide, swing or folding doors.
