Why You Need Sliding Door Operator? And It’s Different Types & Advantages

Sliding Door Operator

There are several types of sliding door operators. Among them are the electric sliding door operator and the worm gear industrial one. Depending on your needs, you can choose a model that meets your requirements. Here are some examples.

Electric Sliding Door Operators

The present invention relates to an electric sliding door operator with soft-start and soft-stop features. The invention is intended to provide ease of serviceability and simplicity of design.

The electrical sliding door operator comprises a motor with an iron cooling flywheel disposed on the drive shaft and imparting predetermined inertia for starting and stopping. The motor is connected to a worm gear reducer that affects a predetermined reduction ratio in rotation. The reducer is actuated by a limit switch. The mechanism couples the rotation of the drive shaft to the linear movement of the sliding door along the track.

Another electric sliding door operator is the one which is manufactured to international quality standards. It is supplied in component-building kits or as a fully assembled sliding door operator. These are suitable for commercial, industrial, and school entrance doors. They are equipped with a motor drive system and are flexible enough to adapt to varied door widths and weights. The safety features include an onboard sensor for monitoring and power supply.

Besides being flexible and easy to install, electric sliding door operators are available in the market today. The best way to choose the right one is to shop around. There are many different types of electric sliding door operators on the market today. Choose the type that best suits your needs and preferences. Beware, some manufacturers may try to fool you with low prices and substandard quality, so be careful when making your purchase. It is important to research before buying one.

The electric sliding door operator from Quiko Italy is a highly beneficial designed device. The 24V motor gear pulls the door open and close, while the door moves in a horizontal direction. This device also offers security against burglars.

Infrared sensors in Sliding Door Operator

Infrared sensors for sliding doors can be used to activate the automatic door system. Infrared sensors are active devices that emit infrared light and measure how this reflects off the ground. Whenever the reflected wave property changes, the sensor is activated. Some infrared sensors can detect static or movement. They will activate automatically when a person or vehicle comes close to the door.

There are several types of infrared sensors for sliding doors. The most common types are the ones with an active infrared sensor designed for use on both sides of an automatic sliding door. Its detection pattern is adjustable in the field. It has a safety sensor for automatic swinging doors. Its versatile settings allow it to handle different-sized doors.

Infrared sensors for sliding door operators are useful when a person comes near the door and the sensor is triggered. IR sensors can detect objects as large as a golf ball. These sensors can be used in combination with microwave or infrared motion sensors. These sensors can detect both human movement and temperature. If the temperature is too high, the automatic door will not operate. The temperature must be within a certain range for the infrared sensor to operate correctly.

The infrared door sensor is a unique device that features sidelights that are always on, a safety zone at the threshold, and the ability to detect stationary or moving people. This sensor can replace a safety sensor that is typically placed overhead. These devices are specially designed for sliding doors, but their presence detection on the threshold significantly increases safety.

Sliding Door Operator Mechanism

The mechanical mechanism of sliding door operators consists of the motor and the gearbox. The operator can be configured for different speeds and features. It can be configured for a hold open and close time ranging from 0 to a few seconds. It also features a safety sensor which cuts the motor's power when the door reaches certain points. It also includes onboard sensors for monitoring and power supply. It can be set to close silently or gently, depending on the situation.

The door operator is installed in the space above the sliding door. Its main function is to open and close the sliding door. It uses sensors to detect when a pedestrian is in the path. The sensors detect the presence of an obstacle and interrupt the operation of the door. They resume the action after the pedestrian has moved out of the path. The door operator is usually installed in large retail establishments. Elevators also use sliding door operators to open and close doors.

The most common type of sliding door actuator is the belt-and-pulley type. It is comprised of a square channel with an enclosed motor and a toothed pulley attached to it. The pulleys are connected to a guide pulley at the other end. A flexible rubber-toothed belt passes between the two pulleys. The belt is attached to flat brackets. It is reliable and easy to install.

Power Supply in Sliding Door Operator

A power supply for sliding door operators can control the operation of the device. Some power operators have two types of outputs. Depending on the door operator, one type of output may be suitable for a single or bi-parting door. The latter type is suitable for heavy-duty automatic sliding doors. Listed below are the characteristics of each type. These specifications may differ from one another.

Super capacitor technology is a key feature of some automatic sliding door operators. It prevents the door from remaining locked if the power fails. If the power supply fails, an automated door will not unlock, which is why a battery backup system is provided, with a manual release system for emergency release. Unlike a conventional manual door, these automatic sliding door operator remains open if the power fails.

Low energy power operators are also available that allow the doors to unlock. Installers may find it easier to install these operators because the wiring and thought process required is simplified. These low-energy power operators handle the auto-operator function wiring in-house, meaning that you only have to wire the power supply for door unlocking. If you choose to use the manual version, you need to program the manual door operator to work with two doors simultaneously. When it comes to safety, a power operator should be installed by a qualified professional.

In Conclusion

Quiko Italy sliding door operators are suitable for commercial and domestic use. The sliding door operator is easy to install and has a smooth glide. If you are not familiar with installing a sliding door operator it is best to seek advice from a professional or a friend who has already installed it. If possible, watch someone else install the sliding door operator. It is important to be careful when installing the sliding door operator.
