Industrial manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centres and commercial operations have been moving away from older slow, rigid doors to high-speed doors in an effort to increase productivity and energy efficiency.

But at what cost?  The quest for high-speed high-cycle automation also comes with added safety risks that increased operating speeds can bring to a door opening.  Fortunately, these days, most automatic doors use motion detection sensors to manage safety and security in vulnerable areas.

The Domino 1100 Microwave Motion Sensor solution – designed for large high-speed industrial doors, vehicle gates and barriers, vehicle detection, loading docks or any other industrial application where motion detection is required.

SMART – Increasing Pedestrian Safety

The Domino 1100 combines uni-directional detecting technology with intelligent software to differentiate between pedestrians and vehicles.

The ability to identify a pedestrian versus a vehicle allows for different door operation responses, such as partial or full door opening, to be set according to the type of traffic approaching the door.

The ability to configure the Domino 110 to detect different types of activity means the sensor can be used to separate pedestrians and vehicles. Setting the unit to ignore pedestrian traffic while still detecting vehicular traffic forces pedestrians to use a safer side access pedestrian door.

Detection mode is selectable between approach-only or depart-only motion and can also distinguish between cross-traffic and approaching traffic.

SENSITIVE – Fast Moving Vehicle Detection

Featuring microwave sensor technology the Domino 1100 can detect larger objects, such as forklift trucks, up to 60 feet away.

The maximum pattern size of the Domino 1100 is approximately 18 ft. wide and 60 ft. from the unit and is easily adjustable via range potentiometer on the printed circuit board.  Uni-directional detecting technology and a large detection area of 5m wide x 8m deep makes the Domino 1100 ideal for the timely detection of fast-moving vehicles.

The mounting height of conventional sensors is around 3-4 metres but the Domino 1100 can be installed at a higher mounting height of up to 7 metres – perfect for taller industrial doors.

SOPHISTICATED – Microwave Technology

Microwave sensors operate by registering and comparing the frequency of transmitted and reflected signals. People and objects cause disparities between the emitted and received frequencies as they move through the detection zone, activating the sensor relay and causing the door to open.

Microwave detectors are motion sensors and can be used in virtually any environment, including those that are not otherwise hospitable to other sensors, making them one of the most versatile types of sensor systems. The Domino 1100 is unaffected by air motion, change in temperature, humidity, color or background variations.

The Domino 1100 is able to be programmed to reduce the number of false door activations without reducing the number of correct positives – improving accuracy, energy losses and ease of use.
