SmartGate PBG-3 sensors will be ooffered with DC Solutions' gates; sensors are designed to detect obstructions before contact

Invisa, Inc., an electronic life safety and security company that commercializes patented presence-sensing technologies, announced that it has shipped to DC Solutions, Inc. a stocking order of SmartGate PBG-3 parking barrier gate safety sensors. DC Solutions plans to offer the PBG-3 as a factory-installed option for its parking barrier gates. Additional sales are anticipated in 2005.

SmartGate safety sensors are the only non-contact sensors available that generate an invisible field traveling with and preceding a closing gate arm. Obstructions in front of the path of travel are detected before they make contact.

Kim Nelson, Founder and President of DC Solutions, said, "We have tested SmartGate sensors on our barrier gate products and find that they bring an important added layer of safety not previously available to the industry. We look forward to building a mutually profitable relationship with Invisa."

"We're proud to have the validation of a leading player like DC Solutions -- Kim has been tremendously supportive of our company," said Carl Parks, Vice President of Operations at Invisa. "I believe this is an important step in our efforts to build business with key manufacturers and distributors in the powered closure sector."
