Used as a safety device. Protects by sensing person or vehicle in danger zones. Operate at a distance up to 295'. When infrared beam is broken it produces a detection signal to stop or reverse a gate. Used primarily with gate operators. Can be used in sets to protect all areas of entrapment

Just think of the unpleasant results of you driving your car through your gate, when it suddenly decides to close! With a photo cell, anything that breaks the beam will stop and reverse the gate. And when we say anything, we mean anything, people included! I rate this as a must have option for any gate.

Woman and child
On most gate motors there is a special outlet for Photo Safety Beams on the control board.

Normally Open” and “Normally Closed” are words that you'll come across when many accessories to gate motors.

“Normally Closed”
Designation which states that the contacts of a switch or relay are closed or connected when at rest. When activated, the contacts open or separated.

Use “Normally Closed” when installing Photo Safety Beams! When someone passes through the inferred beam the circuit is broken.

“Normally Open”: Designation which states that the contacts of a switch or relay are normally open or not connected. When activated the contacts close or become connected

Non Polarity means they are reversible.
A bit of Fun - not for this owner
When wiring photo cells to your gate you will require 4 wire cables:
2 for power, 1 to common (earth) and 1 for normally closed outlets on the control board.
How Polarized Sensors Work:The transmitted IR light that the sensor emits is polarized in a certain direction. When shiny objects pass in front of the transmitted beam, they reflect light into a polarized filter. Only light that matches the original polarization will pass into the receiver.
Gate motor
Unlike other beams you only need to wire the sender no need to run wire under the driveway to the receiver

Very Important! Please Read!
You should always have a qualified electrician work with 240V power.
Never attempt any wiring with 240V mains power by yourself!

240V wiring blue should be neutral and brown should be live! Consider others when they work on live wires in the future! I personally have been given a nasty shock a result of someone using the earth wire as a live feed.

Photo cells are designed for safety!
