Individual, Customer-Specific and Intelligent Opening Modules from EBE sensors + motion
EBE delivers individual, customer-specific and intelligent opening modules for a great variety of applications. Opening modules with a mechanical solution can be distinguished from those with a sensor system. In this case, intelligence means that the door opener precisely detects the wish of the operator. This is achieved by innovative sensors, proven software and robust drives from the company portfolio.
Door Opening Modules with Manual Activation
Automatic door openers based on the push-to-open principle detect the user’s request. A slight pressure on the appliance door signals resp. generates the opening request. The release module is triggered and activated accordingly. This is achieved mechanically or by means of an intelligent sensor system. An inductive path measuring system measures the relative movement to the rest position of the appliance door by means of an attached plunger. Depending on the measurement result, the opening module is activated. Door opening modules based on the pull-to-open principle are suitable for a large number of applications and variants of appliances. They support the opening request, e.g. with very big and heavy doors or with doors under vacuum.
Opening Modules with Fully-Automatic Opening
For application in vending machines, in dishwashers or for maintenance and inspection flaps, EBE also develops fully-automatic unlocking modules. They unlock the door or flap and possibly a lock by an electric signal. The opening function can be designed with or without a sensor. With a sensor, the door opens in a controlled and fully-automatic way covering a defined path. In this case, the opening behavior can be determined and adapted by software. Without a sensor, a plunger may push open the flap or door to be opened.
Innovative Technology for Countless Applications
Automatic door openers meet the comfort requirements of handleless kitchens and cupboard units. They can also be used with inspection and maintenance flaps or in vending machines. EBE sensors + motion applies high quality standards in development and production. It is our goal that appliance manufacturers can guarantee their customers a smooth, reliable and long-term operation of the intelligent door opening modules. This is why protection concepts are part of the development program. They serve to prevent misuse and overloads as early as during the design stage of the door openers. In every single case, EBE develops the intelligent door opener specific to customer and project. The door opening modules are perfectly adapted to the appliance, extensively tested and taken to high-volume manufacturing.
