For safety reasons, gates must open and close faster and faster. This places high demands on the safety equipment of the gate and therefore also on signal transmission through tactile sensor technology. To meet these requirements, BBC Bircher Smart Access developed the new wireless transmission system for switch lists: RFGate 3 with Performance Level D and Category 3.

Safety function from control to system

RFGate 3 with category 3 is self-monitoring and therefore makes the connection of a test output unnecessary. A big advantage for installers, because commissioning is a lot easier and there is less chance of errors. Due to the shift of the safety function from the control to the transfer system, RFGate 3 meets the highest safety level PLd.


IP65 housing

BBC Bircher developed the new transfer system in a housing with protection class IP65. The cable strain relief is integrated in the housing. The housing is designed in a way that the connection cables can be fed in from four sides. RFGate 3 is therefore easy to integrate into the door or gate design. The wireless system has a range of up to 100 m with a high interference resistance. The modules of the RFGate 3 system consume less power so that the batteries last up to two years.


Modular solution for every port

The RFGate 3 transmission system consists of four modular components: a transmitter for switch lists, a wireless pass door switch, a single channel and a two channel receiver. Up to seven channels can be linked to each channel of a receiver. As a result, the RFGate 3 system with safety switch strips from BBC Bircher offers complete protection for all types of industrial doors and gates.
