    The powerful ALL ROUNDER
    the electro-mechanical swing door operator for all standard applications

    The DFA 127 FULL POWER is record’s universal swing door operator, a new, powerful member of record’s product family. This new automatic door features tried and tested technology, compact design and exceptionally quiet operation. It features powerful operation and multiple applications and has an on-site adjustable spring tension, enabling it to operate door sizes ranging from EN4 to EN6. The new operator has additional flexibility features, easily allowing the customer to modify door functions on-the-spot, precisely to suit local needs and conditions.

    Refined technologies combined with record’s new controller allow complex functionality with optimal power deployment over the whole swing area. In addition, its compact dimensions and modular construction enable all assembly types, permitting the installation of standard or sliding arms (on hinge side/on opposite hinge side, DIN left/right). record’s sensor products, used as motion detector devices, ensure safe and reliable operation, time after time.

    Multiple Applications
    The DFA 127 can be used as an automatic door in escape and rescue routes and for fire and smoke-proof door applications.

    Other applications include two-leaf doors with individually working operators, programmed for sequential control (master/slave operation), as well as security interlock function for doors assembled in series.

    • 2 leaf doors with sequential control for master / slave operation (operator in extended housing)
    • 1 leaf standard door
    • 2 leaf doors with two-way traffic direction-setting, operators function individually.
    • Security interlock function with doors assembled in serie
    • Automatic door control system for 1 or 2 leaf doors Fire and smoke-proof door (installation on opposite side to hinges).

    FULL POWER - the strong door automation system


    FULL POWER DFA 127 > many assembly variations > tried and tested technology > powerful, reliable performance


    The GENTLE swing door operator the electro-mechanical operator when caution is required.

    The LOW ENERGY DFA 127 LE is the ideal operator for hospitals and old people’s homes, i.e. for environments populated by slow moving persons or the elderly.

    The LOW ENERGY DFA 127 LE swing door operator is the perfect choice for these applications, providing safe and secure access.

    The door opens automatically, and only after a pre-programmed time delay slowly shuts again. Motion energy is kept to a minimum in order not to endanger persons in the door passage area.

    Like the FULL POWER model, the LOW ENERGY operator is exceptionally quiet in operation, and of elegant, compact design. The control unit features a user-friendly display, easily enabling adjustment, programming and servicing. Door movements and spring tension (for door sizes EN4 to EN6) can be adjusted by the customer on-site. The refined technology and modular construction allow the installation of all assembly variants with standard or sliding arms (on hinge side/on side opposite hinges, DIN left/right). It record’s range of sensors ensure all automatic door applications have the required level of reliability, safety and security.

    especially suitable for:
    > solutions for the elderly and physically challenged, i.e. hospitals
    and old people’s homes
    > the LOW ENERGY DFA 127 LE is qualified for all applications
    like record DFA 127 FULL POWER.

    the swing door operator that functions in power failures

    By contrast with the other two swing door operators, the INVERS version uses spring tension, although in normal use, the door is closed using a motor. The INVERS DFA 127IN looks like the basis model, with identical automation. The INVERS swing door operator uses the same technology as the DFA 127 FULL POWER and LOW ENERGY models.

    Same design, same handling, same software. However, the INVERS DFA 127IN shows its true colours in emergency situations, e.g. during a power failure in a fire. Here, when other doors have closed, the INVERS DFA 127IN automatically opens.

    In case of power failure and smoke formation, the operator’s reverse function allows access to escape and rescue routes. The operator can work using mechanical energy (spring tension) without current, i.e. in a power cut. For large buildings the operators can be used to direct fresh air inside, or smoke and heat to escape.

    In normal conditions, the INVERS DFA 127IN is button-activated. The use of normal motion detectors depends on the individual situation.



    especially suitable for:

    > large buildings, such as clinics,
    theatres congress centres etc.
    as an emergency access
    and ventilation system


    INVERS - The operator that opens without current


    INVERS DFA 127IN > opens independently with spring tension > safe
    and reliable also in emergencies cases
