Dortronics Systems Inc., a provider of off-the-shelf and customized door control solutions, is featuring its new nine-door controller for multi-door interlocks and mantrap applications from two to nine doors as well as its complete line-up of touchless door control solutions at ISC East 2021.

All of Dortronics’ product design and manufacturing operations are located at the company’s Sag Harbor, NY headquarters.

“Our new 48900 Series PLC interlock Controller answers users’ demand for a cost-effective and easy to install mantrap solution for specialized retail environments with high-value merchandise like jewelry, in cannabis dispensaries, or in clean room environments at bio-tech labs or pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities,” said Bryan Sanderford, National Sales Manager of Dortronics Systems, Inc. in a statement.

“It’s a product developed in response to market demand, which has continued to differentiate Dortronics from the big box houses and offshore suppliers. At Dortronics, we specialize in delivering door control solutions with the performance, quality, and often customized features and aesthetics that installers need with fast turnaround times and at the right price.”


The Dortronics’ 48900 PLC Interlock Controller is a cost-effective solution for implementing door interlock and mantrap systems with up to nine doors. Under standard operating conditions, unlocking or opening one door automatically secures other designated doors within the Interlock group. The fully integrated single-board solution provides installers with complete control of all operating and configuration options. The 48900 Series PLC Interlock Controller integrates with virtually any access control system utilizing dry contacts.

The Dortronics 5278 Touchless Proximity Switch utilizes optical infrared technology with embedded sensors to pick up motion within a 4-inch range with an illuminated LED ring for visibility under low-light conditions. A wave of the hand activates the touchless switch. The 5278 decreases the potential to spread contagious diseases since no actual hand contact is required to activate. These switches are often utilized with electronic locks and automatic door operators. The 5278’s illuminated LED ring allows for visibility under low-light conditions.
