New SeyWave® wireless door sensor module with remote pushbuttons and pull cord for industrial doors and gates.

Elgin, Illinois, October 21, 2013 – BTR Controls, Inc. a developer and manufacturer of custom controls for industrial doors and gates today announced the introduction of a new SeyWave® wireless system meeting UL325 standards .

The system is comprised of a Host Module, Sensor Module, remote industrial pushbuttons, remote handheld button(s), and pull cord. It is designed to operate in the 2.4 GHz spectrum for global acceptance, is FCC and IC licensed, and meets UL325 standards. An ultra-low power design coupled with extremely fast signal transmissions makes this system unique in the industry. Full two way communications ensures that every command is received and acknowledged. Setup is extremely easy requiring only the push of a button on the Host and each connected device.

The Host Module comes in a Din compatible case for mounting in an existing control panel or in its own UL Type 4X enclosure with clear cover. Included functions are Open, Close, Stop, Open/Close, Reversing Edge or Breakaway. An additional input from a closing signal works in conjunction with the Sensor Module to insure full system functionality. A low battery indicator from the remote devices helps in maintaining system functionality.

The Sensor Module is designed to work with most door and gate reversing systems in addition to connections for standard breakaway signals. An onboard sensor coupled with the Host closing signal guarantees that the system is active and functional before the door or gate is allowed to close. The electronics and battery are in a molded package used extensively in the automotive industry and thus offer maximum environmental and physical protection. There is a low battery signal sent to the Host while the exclusive circuitry assures a long battery life. Replacement of the module instead of just a battery will guarantee a fully tested functional device is always connected to the sensors.

Remote pushbuttons are all industrial grade and come in UL Type 4X enclosures. The membrane Open/Close/Stop version incorporates a monitored Stop command to parallel standard wiring practices. Other devices include a 90 mm palm button, ceiling pull cord with 11 lb. activation, and a 4 button handheld remote with silicone boot. Additional custom stations are available including stainless steel all matching the functions of the Host module.

The SeyWave® wireless system becomes even more versatile when used with the BTR Digital Gateway® II advanced variable speed door and gate controller. It is a standard in the DG II and includes more integrated functions. Even the BTR Illumadoor® LED signaling system is controlled through DGII programming by the SeyWave® wireless system.
