We have a number of surface mounted DEA photocells available, perfect for easy installation and a great replacement if the photocells currently connected to your DEA gate motor have been damaged. We have photocells available to operate across a range of up to 20 meters, which is more than enough for a typical gate opening. The correct installation of your photocells is vital to their operation but this is not a difficult task with the aid of the included fitting instructions.
Photocells emit an invisible beam of light, which if broken prevents the gate from closing. This protects against damage to vehicles and injuries to pedestrians, which would also damage your gate motor. It is not safe to operate a gate motor without at least one pair of photocells, and we recommend that you install two pairs to ensure that obstacles of all sizes successfully and reliably trigger the safety mechanism.
