The EMX IRB-4X is used as a safety, reversing, or opening device in conjunction with automatic operators. The lens-less design of the IRB-4X photoeye makes it less sensitive to fog, dust, snow, and sunlight.

For gate or door operators that require a monitored safety device, see our UL325 photoeyes. The IRB-4X is not UL compliant.
