Function: RMS-D

An effective opening of doors or industrial doors can be achieved very flexibly with the RMS microwave motion sensor series. The RC versions offer remote-controlled adjustment of parameters. Ultramodern microcontroller evaluation technology guarantees a variety of field sizes and universal use even in difficult conditions. The 24 GHz microwave technology enables a diverse range of operating modes such as direction detection. The cross-traffic suppression function only opens the door if people approach the door from the front, but not if they are walking past it. Thanks to the slow-motion mode, even extremely slow movements are detected, which increases convenience in senior citizens' residences, for example.
