Profiting From Gate Operator Installations

Make sure the site is prepped and the gate itself is operating well, then carefully select the right equipment. In this case the DoorKing 9100 and BEA remote filled the bill.

Transmitter button combinations allow a single transmitter to control multiple locations.

PROXmtr™ includes a built in proximity card with the MicroPLUS transmitter combining both RF and card access control into a single compact unit.

Transmitters are available with one, two or three buttons.

MicroPLUS® RF controls may be used as a standalone access control system or can be interfaced with 26, 30 or 31-bit Wiegand Controllers

Capacity is:

Model 8054: 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 1250 transmitters

Model 8055: 40 transmitters

Model 8056: 5300 transmitters

The Model 8054 standalone receiver can support up to 1250 transmitters and stores the last 2300 transactions. Serial printer can be connected to print transactions as they occur, or can print transactions stored in the history buffer. Receiver features 10 programmable time zones, built in clock/calendar and a built in keypad for easy programming.

The Model 8055 standalone receiver can support up to 40 transmitters. Programming is by means of the receiver “learn” method. Individual transmitter codes cannot be deleted from this receiver.

Model 8056 sends the received transmitter data to an access controller in 26, 30 or 31-bit Wiegand formats. It supports up to 5300 transmitters and is designed for interface with access controllers such as the DKS 1833, 1835, 1837, or 1838

Transmitters have 268,000,000 codes available. Encrypted “sync” code changes each time the transmitter is used.

Transmitter button combinations allow a single transmitter to control multiple locations. They are available with one, two or three buttons PROXmitters - same as the standard transmitter and include a built-in proximity card. PROXmitters are available with DKS, AWID, or HID tags. Button combinations allow two- and three-button transmitters to control multiple devices.

Operating temperature ranges are -10ºF to 115ºF, -23ºC to 46ºC

Electrical Requirements:

Receivers - 12-24 volt AC or DC power

Transmitters – 12 Volt type 23A battery


Model 8054 receiver – Dry contact form C relay (30V, 1A max)

Model 8055 receiver – Dry contact form C relay (30V, 1 A max)

Model 8056 receiver – 26, 30 or 3-bit Wiegand


With the BEA 1S40 dual tech motion presence sensor & programmer, active infrared and microwave technologies work together to provide precise presence and accurate motion detection in front of the door. However, the IS40 is priced competitively with other microwave-only products.

Its maximum mounting height is 16 feet, and the detection pattern includes up to 40 spots, equating to 10-foot by 10-foot coverage. I mounted mine at about seven or eight feet high and the product worked very well.

It is impervious to door vibrations, light, sun and the environment; including rain and snow. The IS40 housing is rated NEMA-4.

I mounted my unit on a metal pole that vibrates whenever the gate is operated, and the field of view is full of tree branches. The BEA remote control works perfectly, and provides enough variables to tune out nuisance issues while still maintaining excellent capture.

The IS40 can be set for detection of one direction movement (towards or away) or both. I found aiming the unit rather intuitive and the sensor’s response to tuning with the remote made tweaking fun and productive.

This unit replaces the labor-intensive inductive loops or obsolete technology microwave sensors with an easy-to-mount overhead installation. All adjustments are executed using the BEA remote control. The unit has a three-year (not one year) warranty, and plenty of aggressive technical support.
