Our SENSORIO division is closely linked to BEA ; we therefore share a common history up to our creation in 2007 after which we enjoyed our first successes.
|1965||Creation of the company Bureau d'Electronique Appliquée with the objective of developing electronic projects for industrial applications.|
|1972||VG017 the first product in a range of Doppler-effect hyper frequency sensors for automatic door opening.|
|1985||(and 2000) BEA receives the Oscar for Exports from the Belgian government.|
|1987||Creation of American subsidiary : BEA Inc. in Pittsburgh, USA.|
|1988||Creation of a research bureau B.E.R. (Belgian Electronic Research).|
|1990||First application with IR2000 presence sensor for interior train doors on ICE1.|
|1992||Creation of the CD range : radars for opening, equipped with a microprocessor for digital processing.|
An opening sensor used as a remote switch goes on sale.
This sensor is particularly suitable for sterile areas and clean rooms
within the hospital environment and the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
The technological revolution starts thanks to EAGLE, a range of very small, side-angled, remote-control sensors with flat aerials.
ISO 9001: 1994 certification.
|1997||Creation of the first Asian subsidiary : BEA Electronic, in Beijing, China.|
|1999||ACTIV8 is the first sensor to combine opening and safety, combining the microwave and infrared technologies to provide comfort and safety to the users.|

|2003||ISO 9001: 2000 certification.|
|2005||4SAFE : new generation of safety sensors for swinging and revolving doors with the size, accuracy and stability for an increased area.|
|2007||Creation of SENSORIO; division dedicated to markets other than those related to pedestrian and industrial automatic doors.|
|2008||Active presence on the electronic security system and RFID markets.|
Launch of the LZR® range, considerably improving the level of protection for users and objects.
Railway market is the first beneficiary of this LASER technology which is based on the principle of time of flight.
ISO 9001: 2008 certification.
First application with LZR®-RS300 (safety sensor for the exterior train doors) on the GKB by Stadler.
