BEA, Inc.

Much like the BEA MS08 Magic Switch in our previous blog on Touchless Entry Switches, the BEA MS09 Magic Switch is a microwave-sensor, motion-activated device, with an adjustable detection zone designed for industrial environments.

The surface mount MS09 utilizes microwave motion technology to ensure consistent and dependable activation. Featuring a conduit connectivity, the MS09 ensures a water-tight installation in harsh environments and wash-down facilities. The MS09 detects moving objects such as a hand, pallet jack or forklift, a solution for applications requiring a hygienic activation method including hospitals, pharmacies, clean rooms, food services, and other industrial facilities. The MS09 can be retrofitted to replace existing hardwired (two-wire) push plates by eliminating the need to run new wire. It can also be equipped with a 900 MHz transmitter providing the benefit of wireless communications.
