Question:

My customer has a REX Sensor for a magnetic lock on a door in a hallway. As employees pass, the REX sensor releases incorrectly on the door. I’ve tried to adjust the depth and width of the beam but to no avail. What do you suggest?

Answer:

If you’ve made all of the adjustments possible in the sensor, I would take a look at a new sensor. We like the sensors that do not reach the floor because they can be triggered easily by sliding a piece of paper under the door to provide access. A solution is the BEA R2E-100 sensor. The pattern is only projected in front of and above the door hardware to eliminate circumvented and accidental release.
