RCM Door Automation

The Raymond EMC QuietDoor-PAS

Raymond EMC has combined the versatility of programmable logic control with the reliability of pneumatics to create the most advanced automation system on the market today. Designed for our QuietDoor Knife Edge R.F. Shielded Door, the system is fully customizable with a long list of available safety and security features. The Raymond EMC Pneumatic Automation System can meet virtually any requirement all while outlasting today’s out-dated electric automated systems.

Key Features

Factory or Field Installation

The QuietDoor-PAS is designed as a bolt-on kit that can be factory installed or installed in the field as an upgrade to a manual QuietDoor. 

Programmable Logic Control

Control of the QuietDoor-PAS is achieved using a programmable logic controller (PLC).  The PLC allows each QuietDoor-PAS automation system to be fine-tuned to the specifications of each client while the additional inputs and outputs allow for easy integration of additional signal-producing sensors and facility security and emergency systems.

Pneumatic Operation

Pneumatic cylinders replace the electric actuators found in many of the current automated R.F. shielded doors on the market offering superior reliability and performance. The system can be tied into existing facility 80-120 psi clean dry compressed air or Raymond EMC can supply and install a suitable air compressor. 

Semi- and Full-Automation

The QuietDoor-PAS comes standard with a pneumatically-controlled user interface allowing the user to operate the door with the push of a button.  From the closed position, the press of the operation button activates the door latch, releasing the door from the fingerstock. The door can then be pulled/pushed open and the user can cross the threshold.  The door will be swung closed automatically by a heavy-duty overhead hydraulic door closer, the door will latch automatically. 

Full door automation is available with the integrating of an overhead door operator designed to both swing open and swing closed the door thus reducing door operation to the push of a button.

Standard Safety Sensor (Full-Automation)

Each Full Automation Pneumatic Automation System come complete with safety switch mat sensor, installed on the swing-side of the system, impeding door swing when a user or an object is detected on the mat. 

As an additional standard safety feature, pressing the Operation button during the close cycle of the door will also halt the closing cycle of the door leaf. 

Limitless Options

Additional inputs and outputs on the PLC, reserved for client-specified options, allow for the easy integration of virtually any signal-producing sensor or facility safety system into the system while overall operation can be modified with simple software changes. 

Emergency Egress

The control system of the QuietDoor-PAS is designed to automatically release air pressure in the system in the event of air pressure or power loss allowing the QuietDoor to be operated manually. The system automatically returns to semi- or full-automation mode with the return of air pressure and power.

The control system can be overridden in the event of an emergency by pressing the Emergency Egress button, standard on all QuietDoor-PAS R.F. Shielded Doors.  Pressing the Emergency Egress button cuts the compressed air supply to the system allowing the door to be manually pulled open. The control system is easily set back into full-automation mode by pressing the Operation button to allow compressed air back into the system.

Secure Access

For secure facilities, a keypad, card swipe or any other electronically controlled access system can be integrated into the control system of the QuietDoor-PAS to limit the operation of the door to specific users. 

Two-year Limited Warranty

Our standard warranty covers parts and labour for two years. Extended warranties and preventative maintenance agreements are available.
