Product Description
The EMX IRB-RET universal retro-reflective photo eye kit includes everything needed to easily setup and operate the device. The gate and garage door safety beam from North Shore Commercial Door provides weatherproof entrapment protection for automatic gates and garage doors. The EMX IRB-RET photo eye safety beam is UL 325-2016 compliant and housed in a NEMA 4X-rated enclosure suitable for indoor and outdoor use. With this equipment, you can reduce installation costs, because the retro-reflective configuration eliminates the need for a separate transmitter and associated wiring across a roadway. It's a universal photo eye, so it's compatible with numerous monitored door/gate operators, including most non-monitored Legacy products. The IRB-RET has 5 monitoring interfaces: normally closed, two-wire pulsed (two frequency), two-wire pulsed (three frequency), four-wire pulsed and 10k resistive termination. A mounting bracket, reflector, protective hood, and mounting hardware comes with your IRB-RET Kit. The selectable monitoring interface makes installation easy. This non-contact sensor has an operating range of up to 60 feet.

Kit Contents:
  • IRB-RET-HD - Black powder coated steel snap on hood for photo eye.
