Why Choose BEA?

BEA’s R&D department commits its energy to stretch the limits of the latest technology. While expressing the results of that activity into solutions that remain open for both the installers as well as the users. For the past 50 years, BEA has been achieving a reputed authority in technologies applied to the domain of detection and receives worldwide recognition as an expert by its peers. Below is the technologies BEA have researched and perfected over the years….

LASER

LASER

LASER technology works according to the principle of time of flight. The sensor sends an intense light impulse in a defined direction and measures the time until the signal returns. As the speed of light is a constant value (approximately 300.000 km/s), this time is directly proportional to the distance between the sensor and the first object encountered by the light impulse.

As a result, and by sending multiple beams in multiple directions (2D or 3D), the sensor is capable of knowing the exact position of any object in its detection area at any given time.

By analyzing this information over a very short period of time, it is easy to determine the shape, speed, and direction of any object.

LASER technology is the most precise and accurate method used in BEA products and delivers the highest ever level of safety.

RADAR

RADAR

Radar technology, also called microwave technology, is based on the Doppler Effect:
the radar sensor continuously emits microwaves with a certain frequency in a defined area. These microwaves are reflected back to the sensor by all of the objects present in its environment.

If the objects in the area do not move, the microwaves come back to the sensor with the same frequency as the initial one. Once a movement occurs in the detection field, the microwaves come back to the sensor with a different frequency and this results in a detection.

Furthermore, this technology can distinguish between an approaching movement (higher frequency) and a departing movement (lower frequency), allowing the sensor to only open the door for an approaching target. This function, known as ‘direction sensing/unidirectionality’, reduces door opening cycles and generates energy savings.

Over the years, radar technology has become the perfect choice for detecting moving objects in a well-defined area.

ACTIVE INFRARED with background analysis

ACTIVE INFRARED

with background analysis

An active infrared sensor is, by definition, a sensor that emits infrared light in a well-defined area and analyzes the reflections that come back.

Background analysis always works with a background (e.g. a sensor shines infrared light on the floor). In this case, the sensor lights up one or more areas and analyzes the energy that returns. Detection is triggered if there is any significant difference when compared to the original picture.

This technology, which is highly sensitive, is the best method for detecting static objects close to a door. It is also often combined with a radar sensor to provide the best option for opening doors (radar) and safeguarding objects (infrared) using a single device.

ACTIVE INFRARED with background supression

ACTIVE INFRARED

with background suppression

An active infrared sensor is, by definition, a sensor that emits infrared light in a well-defined area and analyzes the reflections that come back.

Background suppression works on the principle of ‘triangulation, in which the sensor calculates the distance to an object by taking into account the distance between the emitter and receiver. The emission angle is already known and the reflection angle becomes the key element as the distance to the object can be calculated according to the position of the reflected spot on the receiver side (a triangle can be drawn when you know one distance and two angles).

This technology, which requires a small uncovered zone on the floor, facilitates the detection of static objects without being influenced by the reflectivity of the background. It is therefore mostly used when the background is likely to change (e.g. sensor is fixed on a moving door panel).
