New Product: Motion and presence sensor

The IS40 detects motion to activate automatic doors as well as presence in the doorway to keep doors from closing when an object is in the threshold area.

It can detect large masses, such as forklifts or large pallets, and discern humans from these objects. Infrared and microwave sensors adjust to fit the needs such as size of activation area, size of activator (person versus vehicle), and length of activation. Multiple special activation modes customize the IS40 to specific applications.
