Photo Eyes

Photo eye for automated gates

Automatic gates control access to various locations such as parking lots, garages and, above all, industrial plants and factory halls. Not only are automatic gates extremely practical, they also offer a high level of security and availability. An important component of the gate automation concept is the photo eye.

Photo eyes provide more convenience in door automation

The structure of photo eyes consists of sensors that are attached to the side of automatic gates to monitor the area around the gate. The door opening is scanned with the aid of a light beam. If there is an object inside the door opening, it is detected by the photo eye, the door movement is interrupted and contact with the door leaf is prevented. In practice, there are two types of photo eye, the retro-reflective photo eye and the through-beam photo eye, both of which operate according to different principles.

One-way photoelectric sensor

The through-beam sensor consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter sends a light beam to the receiver. If there is an object in the light path, the light beam is interrupted and the machine movement is stopped. On gates, one of the two components is installed on each side of the gate - both sides of a gate must therefore be equipped with a signal cable. The somewhat greater installation effort involved is offset by the very high interference immunity of the throughbeam photoelectric sensor, even under adverse environmental conditions, and a higher range, coverage compared to the retro-reflective photoelectric sensor.

Reflective photo eye

The Reflective photo eye, on the other hand, has a different design: the transmitter and receiver are located in the same housing. The transmitter shines onto an opposing reflector, which then reflects the light back to the receiver. An object placed in the light path between the sensor and reflector interrupts the light beam and stops the machine movement.

Smooth operation thanks to
modern photo eyes

If an object or person interrupts the light beam of the photo eye, a signal is sent to the control system of the door or machine. This interrupts the movement and prevents contact.

Manufacture, deliver and produce on schedule - with functional photo eyes

Thus, photo eyes are indispensable components of automatic gates and many machines that help to ensure scheduled production or delivery. For more information or if you have any questions about installation or delivery, the team of experts at doorautomation24 will be happy to help. By phone or email.
