The rugged design of the PD140 makes it the ideal choice for harsh outdoor use, where strong ambient light, fog, rain, snow, and dust, might be present. The sturdy aluminum and polycarbonate housing also protects the sensors against vandalism. The PD140 has an amazing outdoor sensing range of up to 60 meters (200 feet); for controlled indoor environments, the range is up to 120 meters (400 feet).

As most installers know, installing and setting up infrared sensors at long distances can be a very challenging and tedious task. With the optional APD140-LA01 Green Laser Alignment Tool, alignment of the PD140 can be done in seconds, even at distances longer than 60 meters (200 feet)! Full UL325 Certification ensures that the PD140 has the features necessary to meet the UL requirements for Door and Gate Access applications.
