Why Customers Prefer the RET2

This retroreflective sensor’s capabilities and design make it the preferred choice for many customers. Explore a few reasons our customers prefer it:

Turn the Stealth Mode On or Off 

The RET2 offers an innovative stealth mode option that turns off LEDs when not in use. This helps reduce vandalism and can even offer minor energy-saving benefits. Choose to use the mode or turn it off as needed so you can tailor your equipment to your precise needs.

Install with Ease 

This retroreflective sensor was designed with ease of installation in mind. The ½-inch screw-in conduit on the bottom of the equipment makes it easier to install than previous models, and we’ve removed the jumpers for the dip switches and included detachable terminable blocks as well. These features, with the help of the easy-alignment LED, make it easy to get your equipment up and running without delay.

Use with Your Existing Hardware

This solution is designed to integrate with existing monitored operators or non-monitored legacy products you may have, which our customers appreciate. The hardware also mounts with the same placement, removing an additional barrier and ensuring your retroreflective sensor serves as a seamless upgrade to anything you may be using already. 

Enjoy the Enhanced Visual Appeal

A common complaint for other retroreflective sensor options is that their bulky design was an eyesore on residential gates and other common applications. Our RET2 features a sleeker, more compact design and a black polycarbonate enclosure and mounting bracket that blend in more easily. This makes it a more visually appealing option for industrial and residential applications alike.
