Avitra Exhibit Technologies Introduction Video
Hand And Body Proximity Sensor
BPS1 Demo Video
The Hand/Body Proximity Sensor, now available from Avitra LLC, operates when a person's hand or body is placed near the sensor. Physical contact with the sensor is not required. This touchless pushbutton adds a dimension of durability and flexibility above and beyond the traditional moving-contact pushbutton. Place it behind a graphic panel, window, wall, or underneath a tabletop or chair, for a pushbutton-type trigger for your exhibit audio, video, or other interactive function.
The BPS1 Hand/Body Prox provides an off-the-shelf, easy to use, and economical solution not previously available. The sensor, having no moving parts, and placed fully protected from abuse and damage, will give you years of maintenance-free operation in a 24/7 application. The BPS1 Hand/Body Prox
triggers when a person's hand or body interferes with the low-level electric field
in front of its sensing face. It can look through non-metallic materials like wood,
laminates, glass, acrylic, drywall, corrugated
substrates, plastics, and more. Sensitivity is adjustable, providing an operating range of up to 4 inches from the sensor face. 2 simultaneous outputs are provided: relay contacts(NO and NC form C) for easy universal connection to your triggered device, and a solid state output where long-term reliability is needed. Calibration is self-monitored, and automatically compensates for changing environmental conditions. Contact Avitra, at 847-803-4832 for more details, or to discuss your application.
