Touchless activated switch opening new doors for company

With a ‘touchless’ manual activation, GEZE has introduced the GC 306, a proximity switch that meets the standards required in hospitals, laboratories, care homes and food preparation areas.

The GC 306 has a non-contact activation that can be set as required and has a range of 10cm to 50cm to open automatic swing, sliding, folding, revolving or curved sliding doors.

The low voltage operation can be used in the vicinity of sensitive medical equipment and IT server rooms.

It can be fitted into various places such as behind tiles, wood or plaster, without its activation range being affected.

The GC 306 offers two switching modes – ‘pulse’ where the door closes automatically after the hold-open time, and ‘toggle’ where it remains open until the switch is activated again.

Andy Howland, Sales Director at GEZE UK said: “The GC 306 proximity switch is a great addition to our automatic door systems range. It provides non-contact and hygienic manual activation which is a vital to environments which require high levels of hygiene to prevent cross-contamination to patients or work areas.”
