Function: AIR30/32-UP-2493

The sensor is used as an opening impulse sensor for train doors. The fact that it is fitted to the side means that the detection beam crosses the entrance area. The detection range is optimized for doors that are 935 mm to 955 mm wide. The detection range is preset and cannot be modified. This creates a background area above 885 mm in which no detection takes place.


The sensor must point towards a background or a wall, otherwise it will not work.
