The NABCO Acugard 3 LE door mounted sensor adds extra pedestrian protection to low energy swing doors. The bar type sensor can be mounted on the approach side of the door to prevent it from closing on slower moving traffic, such as the elderly or handicapped, until they are through the entrance and completely out of the path of the door. It 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 AC or DC power sources allows seamless interface with Gyro Tech’s 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 and allows optimization of door performance. The sensor exceeds the ANSI/BHMA standard for safety.

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