Photocell Safety Barrier Beam Sensor

Photocell Safety Barrier Beam Sensor:

A safety device that includes a Receive and modulated infrared Transmitter, the self-aligning cell is called a self-aligning Photocell. The Receive is broken by a break in the path of the electrical contact.

The function of photocell sensors

1. Use microprocessor control (CPU) to create a digital circuit.

2. Professional waterproof design with rubber seal

3. A single beam sensor/single beam detect is used to control automatic slide doors, coil doors, garage door windows, and so on.

4. It consists of a transmitter, a receiver, as well as an integrated amplifier that can produce an infrared light beam.


Specification for photocell sensors:

Power supply: 12/24V AC/DC

Absorbed current: >25 mA

Sensing range: 15m

Obstacle detection time: 1 sec

Operating temperature: -10°C / 50°C

Type of alignment: Automatic

Installation: wall-mounting


To ensure maximum efficiency and optimal working performance, align the Transmitter and Receive correctly.

The maximum height for installation should not exceed 20cm. Distance between RX/TX should be at least two meters. The device should be vertically aligned and not on a horizontal line.

Check the alignment of the Receiver’s LEDs. The LED will turn on when the device is in line.
