BEA Infrared REX Sensor

BEA’s R2E is an easy-to-install request-to-exit motion sensor with a highly directional field settable pickup pattern and additional high security features. The R2E-100 is an active infrared request-to-exit sensor for interior applications. It is UL Listed as an access control device under UL Std. 294.

Features include:

  • Mounts on or above a door header with pattern placed in front of handle.
  • Rejects false detection for parallel traffic or objects slid under a door.
  • Multiple relocking modes for any timed / door position conditions.
  • Relay output consists of two Form “C” contacts for NO / NC wiring.
  • Optional alarm can be sounded when door is open or Maglock is activated.
  • 3 DRY auxiliary inputs: request to exit, request to enter, and a DPS.
  • Hold Time: 0.5 to 60 seconds
  • Detection Range: 20” to 48”.

The R2E-100 Re-Lock Mode can be selected to run in timer mode or door position mode. In timer mode, the relay hold-time will control when the security device is re-locked, and it is adjustable from 1/2 to 60 seconds. In addition, the timer mode features selectable sub-modes of operation, re-starting mode, where the relay hold time will not expire as long as the sensor is in detection or non-re-starting mode, where the relay will remain active for only the adjusted relay hold time.

In door position mode, a door position switch connected to the door position switch input on the R2E-100 will control when the door is re-locked. The door position mode also has an advanced re-locking feature that is selectable as 10 or 30 seconds, for the scenario that if the sensor has gone into detection but the door has not been opened, the R2E-100 will re-lock the door and become secure again.
