Function: PROSCAN/38a

The compact ProScan energetic light scanner operates using an integrated source of infrared light and creates a fan-shaped detection field consisting of a maximum of 12 independent light beams. Since the beam intensifies toward the center of the fan, the area around the closing edges in particular is monitored virtually seamlessly. The sensors are self-programming and automatically adapt to any environment, learn the environment, and even automatically adapt to subsequent changes. Other notable features include the high level of sensitivity, ambient light immunity and compensation of long-term drift. This function guarantees reliable long-term use, even in dirty, rainy or snowy conditions.
