BEA’s Falcon family of sensors is the premier microwave activation solution for indoor and outdoor industrial applications. The family includes the Falcon, Falcon XL (extra low mount) and Falcon Wide (for wide detection areas).

BEA’s Falcon family is ideal for automatic industrial doors, vehicle gates/barriers, vehicle detection, loading docks or any other industrial application where motion detection is required.

Housed in a NEMA 4 rated enclosure, the Falcon family is designed to operate in harsh environments.


Energy savings

Bidirectional, unidirectional approach and unidirectional depart microwave detection options

Adjustable detection settings

Six modes of detection filtering are available for microwave immunity, as well as pedestrian and parallel traffic rejection

Weather rated

NEMA 4 rated enclosure

Remote control adjustments

Remote control programming enables user to quickly and safely make changes from the ground

Frequently asked questions

How do I set the FALCON to detect vehicles but not people?

Set Detection filter to “3” or higher, walk-test, and then test with a vehicle.


Why does the FALCON still detect people when I have the Rejection filter set to “6”.

The mounting height may be incorrect. The FALCON mounting height range is 11.5 to 23 feet, the FALCON XL mounting height range is 6.5 to 11.5 feet, and the FALCON WIDE mounting height range is 11.5 to 21 feet.


Why does the FALCON no longer detect fork trucks when I set the Detection filter to not detect people?

The mounting location may be incorrect. The FALCON should be mounted directly in the center, above the door.


How long is the cable for the FALCON?

30 feet.


Why are the wire colors of my new FALCON different from my old FALCON?

The wire color changed from European coloring to US coloring. Verify wiring connectivity in the User’s Guide.


What is the power requirement for the FALCON?

12 to 24 VAC ±10%; 12 to 24 VDC +30%/-10%


Why is the door recycling open?

The FALCON is detecting the motion of the door or sensing external vibrations. Tilt the sensor out farther and/or reduce the detection field (Sensitivity).

If the FALCON is mounted to the door’s header, remount it to the wall with an extension bracket, if needed.


Can I adjust the FALCON without the remote control?

Yes. Reference the User’s Guide for manual adjustments.


Will the FALCON detect an object if it stops moving?

No. The FALCON will only detect objects in motion.


Why is the door randomly opening even with nothing or no one in the area?

The FALCON may be detecting environmental interference such as ceiling fans, blowers, or air curtains.
