Escalators or ‘people movers’ can be found in a wide variety of public buildings, such as airports, train stations, hospitals, and shopping centers. They facilitate the flow of pedestrians throughout a building by directing traffic and expediting travel. Sensors are commonly used to activate escalator movement when pedestrians are boarding, conserving energy by not running the equipment when not in use.
Motion sensors for escalators are compact and can be flush-mounted, preserving the aesthetics of the environment. These devices are compatible with all types of escalators and work to ensure the flow of people during escalator operation.
