Product Features

The MS21 is a state-of-the-art touchless activation plate that utilizes capacitance technology to detect and trigger activation in automatic doors. The low profile, hands-free MS21 includes a stainless steel face-plate and illuminated LED mounting ring for maximum durability and visibility. Other innovative features include adjustable detection zones, audible alerts, NEMA 4-rated enclosure and customizable faceplate text and logos.

The MS21 combines form and function into an aesthetically pleasing design that is ideal for healthcare facilities, clean rooms, washdown areas and a variety of other applications.
