MODEL IRB-4X - Photo Eye

MODEL IRB-4X-HB - Photo EyePRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The IRB-4X photocell is used as a safety, reversing, or opening device in conjunction with automatic gate operators. The IRB-4X will work with any control board that accepts dry contact in the input. This easy to install reliable photocell is used with garage doors, rolling doors, parking barriers and other automated operators. The IRB-4X transmitter and receiver are mounted in line of sight at a distance of up to 75 feet.  When the infrared beam is broken the internal relay is de-energized and detection signal is produced on the relay contacts.  The red LED indicator on the receiver is lit when the IRB-4X receiver is not aligned or when the beam is interrupted.
