Rite-Hite introduces interior door control panel

Low-voltage panel also improves safety.

By DC Velocity Staff

The "Graphic User Interface" (GUI) by Rite-Hite is an interior door control panel designed to enhance worker safety and provide real-time data. The new interface uses low-voltage connections from the larger junction box near the motor to provide access to door settings without the risk of arc flash, eliminating the need for workers to wear personal protective equipment when making adjustments or troubleshooting the box.

The GUI system features a 7-inch color LCD touchscreen with icons and descriptions displaying adjustments. The company designed graphics to make troubleshooting simple for workers. The panel also provides instant data on the door, including number of cycles and average cycle time per opening and closing. It can be integrated with many building management systems to provide further operational efficiencies in a facility. The GUI also supports multiple languages.

The plastic NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) 4X enclosure is designed for any application, from interior or exterior use to washdown areas, coolers, and freezers. The control panel is pre-wired and factory tested, and can be used on any Rite-Hite door with an i-COMM III digital control and encoder.
