BEA was founded in 1965 by Fernand Van Genechten in Belgium and focused primarily on the development of industrial electronic products. By 1985 BEA was recognized by the Belgian government and received an Oscar. With the huge increase in automatic doors and an industry need for pedestrian safety, BEA began filling the need for reliable and safe automatic door sensors and products. Shortly following that a subsidiary branch of BEA was created in Pittsburgh, PA and helped set the standards for automatic door safety in the US. Overseas, BEA grew in popularity and became a staple in the European automatic door market as well as Asia. By 1998, BEA founded it's first Asian subsidiary in Beijing, China and by 2001 BEA created a new subsidiary in Tokyo, Japan.
Trusted Automatic Sliding and Swinging Door Sensors
BEA is the trusted sensor choice for all automatic doors. Each and every automatic door manufacturer outfits their commercial automatic sliding doors with BEA sensors because they know that the safety and reliability is there. The BEA IXIO-DT1 is the latest in automatic sliding door sensing technology and features 2 different technologies built into one sensor. Microwave motion detection is used to pick up approaching pedestrians, and as they pass through the door way, infrared safety presence detection tracks them telling the automatic door controller to keep the doors open. For automatic swinging doors, BEA offers the LZR sensor family which sets a new standard of safety and performance. The unique sensor housing design is so small in size that it is hardly noticed as pedestrians pass through the door way. These are just two examples of industry leading automatic door sensor products manufactured by BEA.
