EFAFLEX presents a completely new and patented technology. EFAFLEX engineers have developed the ground-breaking activator EFA-SCAN®, the first internationally available laser scanner to be used in a door. The innovation from EFAFLEX covers the entire space in front of the door - without a gap for the first time. By intelligent direction recognition, the sophisticated software prevents false activation during rain, snow and bright sunshine. Therefore, EFA-SCAN® is one of the few laser scanners which is also suited for outside installation. This innovative technology ensures a unique, safe and immediate opening of the door. EFAFLEX has achieved a further milestone with EFA- SCAN®, in the development of safe high-speed doors.
EFA-SCAN® monitors the horizontal plane at a detection angle of 95°, and also scans the area at 6° in the vertical level. Thereby, the EFA-SCAN® carries out an incredible 16,000 measurements per second.
EFA-SCAN® reacts like an activator within the dynamic detection zone. When detecting a moving object or a person, EFA-SCAN® triggers within a split second and the door opens. Its significant capability is in the intelligent detection and recognition of the direction of movement. EFA-SCAN® does not only detect movement but also calculates the distance, direction and speed of an object of any description. Therefore, EFA-SCAN® emits an impulse to open the door only if someone or something moves towards the door. If people and vehicles are only passing the door it is not activated. In addition, the scanner can distinguish reliably between people and vehicles and can react depending on the setting.
In the static safety field directly in front of the door, the EFA-SCAN® reacts just like a safety system. As soon as the laser scanner detects a moving or stationary obstacle, it prevents the door from closing.
