Why specify sensing edges for automatic gates?

The 2009 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2009 International Fire Code (IFC) require automated vehicular gates comply with the provisions of UL325 and ASTM F2200.

Miller Edge is North America's leading manufacturer of UL325 compliant gate edge sensors and photo eyes. Additionally, they offer convenient accessories such as gate edge transmitters and receivers.

Be sure to review ASTM-F2200 when designing a gate that will be motorized. In addition, you'll want to be sure the gate operator, along with the attached safety devices that are specified, comply with ANSI/UL325.

Miller Edge offers a convenient guide to help you comply with the ANSI/UL325 standard for gate entrapment protection devices. To request a printed copy of this guide, please email info@milleredge.com.

Product Info

For monitored gate edges being used with 2016 UL325 Recognized gate operators, please specify wiring termination requirements. Most gate operator brands require T2 internal wiring (10k resistive) configuration to monitor the presence and function of external devices.
