BBC Bircher Smart Access - Products for acces control

BBC Bircher Smart Access, based in Beringen, Switzerland, is the sensor specialist for automatic doors and gates, public transport and industry.

BBC Bircher Smart Access stands for comfort and safety in a rapidly growing automation world. Comfort products are products that contribute to the process in an unobtrusive manner. They bring more movement than just fences and doors. They detect everything that comes to them, removes them or comes along. Even with a fire alarm or with slow-moving people, these products are always reliable.

Safety products prevent people or cars from being injured or damaged by dangerous scissors and closing edges. Pressure-sensitive or contact-free they immediately give the crucial command to a control module.

Radar movement detector - Herkules 2E - BBC Bircher Smart Access


The Herkules 2E radar movement detector from BBC Bircher Smart Access is specially designed for industrial door use. The Herkules 2E is the successor of the Herkules 2. The Herkules 2E has two new functions: two completely independently programmable outputs and an additional setting when leaving the door: pulse output. Read more about Herkules 2E. 

Features Herkules 2E:

  • Quick and easy installation
  • Two completely independent programmable outputs
  • Mounting height range of 2 to 7 m covered by one sensor
  • Differentiation between pedestrian and/or vehicle traffic
  • Detects traffic moving toward and away from the door
  • Cross-traffic optimisation prevents unwanted opening

Electrical safety edges are used for securing machine bottlenecks, automatic sliding gates, doors and access systems. In our workshop we make customized tailor-made switch strips. We do this on the basis of different profiles, lengths and cable lengths. 

Products BBC Bircher Smart Access

The BBC Bircher Smart Access EPE040/067A0J is the intermediate switching edge in the CoverLine series. BBC Bircher Smart Access EPE016/026A0T and EPE016/026J2T are two switch strips from the S-Line series. Switching edges for roller doors, sectional doors or up-and-over doors can switch electrically or pneumatically. Air pressure is used in pneumatic circuits. Read more about electrical safety switch strips.

Hygienic and contactless switching - Cleanswitch

Specially developed for use in areas with strict hygiene requirements, the CleanSwitch from BBC Bircher Smart Access. The switch activates access points without having to touch the switch and thus prevents the spread of pathogens.


The variable detection zone can be set between 0.1 and 0.5 meters. CleanSwitch offers two detection modes: the pulse mode with waste delay switches when movement is detected and returns the detector to its original status after a set period of time. In the on / off function, CleanSwitch changes its status every time a hand movement is detected. Read more about CleanSwitch

Wireless transmission between pneumatic safety switch strip

By using safety switch strips, your sliding, sectional or up-and-over doors can now be operated electrically or pneumatically. The BBC Bircher Smart Access AirMission system ensures a wireless transmission between the pneumatic safety switch strips and control pad. Are you using electrical safety switch trips? Then the RF-Gate is a good solution. Read more wireless transfes with AirMission

Loop derection with ProLoop Lite - BBC Bircher Smart Access

Loop detection is used to automatically open barriers and industrial gates, for example. At the moment that a vehicle is detected, the loop detector ensures smooth passage. The Proloop 2 from BBC Bircher Smart Access can be used for loop detection. This loop detector offers many possibilities and is very efficient when it can be used optimally. Read more about loop detection with ProLoop Lite.

Loop detectors - BBC Bircher Smart Access

A detection loop is an induction loop made of copper wire. A magnetic field is created by connecting the detection loop to a control unit. A vehicle disrupts this signal and is picked up by the detection loop. A control unit for a detection loop provides the signal whereby access barriers, industrial doors and site fencing can be opened.

Sliding door - BBC Bircher Smart Access

Securing an automatic sliding door

Many people pass through a door in hospitals, schools, airports or shopping centres. A logical solution in this situation would be to install an automated sliding door. How do you ensure that these sliding doors can be used efficiently and safely?

Automatic operations of sliding gates

Do you wish to fence off the site with one or more sliding gates? Passing vehicles must be granted as easy access as possible. Loop detectors analyse induction loops installed in the ground and detect an approaching vehicle on time. Assembling safety switch strips on the closing edges assures the safety of man and vehicle. BBC Bircher Smart Access offers activation and safety units that ensure seamless operation of your site fencing.

Products for parking systems

Parking systems make use of access barriers or retractable bollards. You can rely on rapid and safe activation of your parking system with BBC Bircher Smart Access loop detectors. Obstacles and barriers are easy to secure with safety switch strips.

Loop detectors recognise each metal vehicle within their detection range and pass that signal on to the switching device. Thanks to ASB, off-road vehicles and truck-and-trailer combinations can be detected reliably and without disruption. An ASB function enables you to regulate the loop detector in such a way that vehicles that normally speaking cause problems can easily be detected. Trucks and cars with trailer have a dead zone, the area between vehicle and trailer, that is difficult to detect. The ASB function enables you to regulate the loop detector in such a way that vehicle combinations can be detected easily.
