Condor: First motion and presence sensor for
Combining the benefits of a
motion sensor and an inductive loop the Condor sensor
provides an innovative solution to increase safety,
reduce costly collisions and false openings, and save
sensor was the first dual technology sensor for
automated industrial doors. It combines motion-detecting
radar with presence-detecting active infrared.
The radar activates the door for approaching vehicles
but ignores traffic travelling away or parallel to the
opening. It is less sensitive to door vibrations and
does not ‘see’ rain or snow. That means the door only
opens when it needs to and closes immediately after a
vehicle has passed, reducing heat loss or gain.
The active infrared sensor detects vehicles and/or
pedestrians even when they are stationary, and ensures the door stays open. This
prevents the risk of doors closing on vehicles that are
parked in the opening for extended periods.
many cases the Condor
can replace a traditional induction loop and it’s
installed much more easily. Once installed, all
parameters are set from ground level via remote control.
Its benefits have been recognised by Tesco, which
specifies the Condor’s use at its sites.
GfA uses only the best quality components and suppliers
so we’re pleased to be partnering with BEA to supply the
Condor and a full range of BEA sensors. BEA is the
world’s leader in microwave and sensor technology. We
believe they provide the most accurate range of
industrial motion sensors available.
