Magnetic Door Counter MAXX – Battery Operated Standalone Counter – Premium Battery Design


Battery operated Magnetic Door Counter.   How many times has your door been opened?

Please see the Magnetic Door Counter Lite for a smaller, less rugged, less expensive version.  Please see the Magnetic Door Counter Wireless if you would like counts to be sent wirelessly to a remote display.





This Magnetic Door Counter operates in a similar fashion to the MDC Lite ($99).   The LITE has been a very popular product and over the years folks have asked us for:

  • a sensor with longer wire between the magnetic sensor and the display
  • a sensor with a larger display
  • a sensor with a battery that is ‘more standard’ and easier to replace (the LITE uses a standard cell battery and the MAXX uses a standard 1.5 volt AA battery (larger and easier to replace)

These features are now available with the Magnetic Door Counter MAXX.    (By the way, if you need longer leads – please contact sal[email protected] as there may be a slight increase in cost).


The Magnetic Door Counter does not count individual people.  Rather, it counts the number of times a door is open and closed.   The  Magnetic Door Counter does not separate door openings and door closings, so you will need to divide the displayed count by 2.  This counter would be used in the following applications:

  • The door swings into your facility and a standard infrared beam-break counter cannot be used.
  • There is not enough room to install a counter device on each side of the entrance.
  • You want to count ‘buying groups’ instead of individual patrons.
  • The typical traffic flow is one person enters/exits at one time.
  • You want to confirm that a door is not being used.

Some of the Main Features of the Magnetic Door Counter include:

  • Rugged enclosure.
  • Large five-digit liquid crystal display, 0.5 inch character height.
  • Pushbutton reset switch.
  • Silent Operation
  • Battery Type: Standard 1.5 Volt battery. User replaceable.
  • Sensor Dimensions:   4.5 inches x 2.25 inches x 1.25 inches deep
  • 8 inch cord between display and magnet.
  • Typical Operating Environment:     0 to 120 degrees F.   Protected from weather.
  • Typical Battery Life:  1 year

The Magnetic Door Counter counts every time the magnets are pulled apart or pass within 1/2 inch of each other.  This counter can be used on a swinging door, sliding door, rotating wheel, or swinging lever.  The display automatically turns off after one minute of no use to preserve battery life and will activate without losing counts when use resumes .
