Sensors for Door and
Gate Applications

Manufacturer: Pantron Instruments, GmbH
Category: Photoelectric sensors

Pantron photoelectric sensors are powerful and reliable and are trusted by manufacturers worldwide in door and gate applications.

Pantron Photo Eyes on Automatic Roll Up Doors

Pantron infrared photoelectric sensors are extremely powerful, yet simple to install and maintain. They have been used by the door industry's top manufacturers for over 15 years on high speed, high performance, automatic roll up doors and sliding doors.

Photo Eyes to Control Security Gates

Pantron infrared photoelectric sensors are perfectly suited for outdoor applications on security gates. They may be used to send a signal to open the gate and also to prevent premature closure.

Microwave Motion Detectors for Pedestrian Doors

Microwave Sensors, also known as Radar or Doppler sensors have been used to activate automatic doors for decades. Today's safety standards such as ANSI/BHMA A156.10 have been the driving force for improvement of microwave technology in automatic door applications.

Electric Sensing Edges for Safety

Edge sensors are used in safety applications to stop or reverse automatic doors or moving machinery. These sensing edges offer cushioning to absorb over travel that occurs between the stop command and the actual end of motion.

Contact Mats to Open Doors in Clean Environments

The safety mat systems are available in standard and custom sizes and shapes. They can also be used as a safety system and counting system at the same time. The safety mat systems deliver higher performance, unmatched reliability and enhanced safety and comfort.

Reduce Down-time and Maintenance Costs

All Pantron automatic infrared photoelectric amplifiers and multiplexers are equipped with microprocessor-controlled diagnostic tools. When things do go wrong, the photoelectric system will help the operator quickly and easily diagnose the problem so that it may be corrected. This keeps down-time to a minimum and reduces the need for lenghtly and often costly service calls.


These instruments shall exclusively be used by qualified personnel. The instruments are not to be used for safety applications, in particular applications in which safety of persons depends on proper operation of the instruments.
