Get the TORPEDO II Presence Sensor for Full-Energy (Full-Automatic) Swinging Doors by Tucker Auto-Mation from North Shore Commercial Door. The TORPEDO II is a door mounted active infrared sensor for swinging door applications. The TORPEDO II can be mounted on the approach or safety side (back of the door) to ensure safety when the door is in motion. When installed on the approach side, the TORPEDO II reactivates upon detection of a person or object in the swing path of the door during the closing cycle to protect slow-moving people as well as people trailing behind. If installed on the "back" side of the door, the door will STOP if the door was in the opening cycle and the sensor detects the presence of a person or object. The door will continue to open after the area is clear of obstructions. When using the TORPEDO II, the need for extended hold open time is eliminated by allowing the door to begin the close cycle after the minimum 5-second hold open time has elapsed.
The TORPEDO II is a contactless experience that is sleek, reliable, and easy to install! The TORPEDO II allows re-activation of the door before contact is made during the closing cycle. The door is kept open upon detection of the slow-moving person and re-opens the door upon detection of the person trailing and slow to cross the threshold. Door reactivation upon detection reduces liability and provides peace of mind to the building owner. Mount the TORPEDO II at the top of the door and out of harm's way to reduce exposure to damage and vandalism. Artificially increased door hold open times are eliminated for savings on heating and cooling costs.
The TORPEDO II exceeds ANSI.156.19 standards by offering a contactless experience. Proven active infrared technology (distance measurement sensor using the principle of triangulation) guarantees smooth and safe operation of a door intended to be used by the elderly and disabled people. The sensor is only active following a knowing activation such as pressing a wall switch. Following a door activation, the TORPEDO II remains enabled to allow continued automatic non-contact re-activation capability should someone remain in the door opening while the door is open or while it is closing. Adjust depth scanning and detection range with set screw. Adjust detection pattern away from the door with tilt angle.
The TORPEDO II is housed in aluminum with an unbreakable black polycarbonate (PC) front cover. The TORPEDO II indicates there are TWO sensing modules inside the aluminum housing (TORPEDO-ONE has only ONE sensing module). The Torpedo II is intended for use on full energy (full automatic) swinging doors and mounted on both sides of the swing door. The TORPEDO II is 35.5" (for 36" door). When the door panel is 48" wide, it would require TWO sensing zones to catch the width of the door.
