Automatic doors have for the last 3 decades become a trend in the commercial sector providing elegant appearances in shopping malls, theatres, retail shops, arcades, hotels, and residential. The elegance, delicacy, and modish of automatic door solutions seem to eliminate stress and collision in busy centres as these doors automatically unlock and close themselves.
With various specifications such as sensors and monitoring cameras, automatic door solutions eliminate possible mistakes that could possibly be made by humans since such public places are hardly controlled by humans. Installing sensors, and cameras is an ultimate approach to identifying every individual that goes in and from the building.
Ideally, this is effected by the deployed sensors that include generally wireless sensing network (infra-red or ultrasonic) that are superior in detecting and recording surrounding events. This digital mechanism is accomplished with the help of the infrared energy from an individual’s body and the PIR sensor from a considerable distance.
Once the signal is captured, it is transferred to a microcontroller which operates the automatic door. The interrupt signals are controlled through limit switches to avoid locked rotor condition of the motor. In addition, the closure is impacted through a fixed time delay.
