Access technology

A controlled and safe passage

Automatic fences, gates and doors are widely used in the industrial sector. Nowadays, technology is used everywhere to work effectively and efficiently. You don't want to have to manually open a door or roll-up gate every time you want to grant access to personnel or passing vehicles, people or machines. For optimal access and safe passage, you can combine different technologies. Look at different solutions and examples on this page.

Optical and acoustic signaling

Optical and acoustic signaling devices warn users and operators with the help of light and sound. Read more about signal towers and signal lights.

Safety edges

Safety edges are used for securing machine bottlenecks, automatic sliding gates, doors and other access systems. Safety edges are also called bumpers or bumpers. The switch chamber is incorporated in the top of the rubber, so less force is needed to switch the list.

Pull-wire switches

A pull-wire switch can have different functions. In the simplest case, a pull wire switch provides for opening or closing access gates/doors. The switch can also ensure a safe situation in the form of an emergency stop switch.

Loop detectors

A detection loop is an induction loop of copper wire. By connecting the detection loop to a loop detector, a magnetic field is created. A vehicle disturbs the magnetic field and is recognized. A loop detector for a detection loop provides the signal with which barriers, industrial gates and fences can be opened.

Switching units for mats and lists

The switching devices monitor the connected contact mats and switching lists for activations and interruption. They are also monitored for changes in the quiescent current.

Air pressure switches

Air pressure switches are ideally suited as opening sensors for automatic gates and vehicle doors on buses and trains due to their sturdy design and long service life.

Industrial connectors

Industrial connectors are available in different materials, each suitable for a specific application. Normal environmental conditions, high temperature environments, aggressive environments, as well as environments that require electromagnetic compatibility.

Safety mats

The contact mats ensure an immediate deactivation when leaving the control platform (unexpectedly). In addition, they offer a slip-resistant, vibration-absorbing and therefore ergonomically responsible standing surface.

CleanSwitch non-contact switch

CleanSwitch is a contactless switch for door activation and has been specially developed for use in areas with strict hygiene requirements. The switch activates access points without having to touch the switch, thus preventing the spread of pathogens in a simple and efficient way.
