CEDES' history

The CEDES story

CEDES has been developing innovative solutions since 1986 for safety and information systems, automation, monitoring, industrial computers and controls. Beginning life as a two-person start-up in a kitchen, CEDES now employs around 400 people worldwide as a global leader in optical sensors utilizing active infrared technology and image processing.

From those humble beginnings, it took the company less than a decade to become a global leader in elevator sensor technology. We developed the first commercial light curtain in 1991, which has become the industry standard. Then our slot-type sensors revolutionized elevator positioning and our latest hoistway communications solutions are doing the same for the 21st century.
We have taken that same pioneering spirit and expanded into the entrance automation markets to provide ultra-reliable comfort and safety sensor solutions for pedestrian, industrial and residential doors as well as for transportation & people-flow, warehouse management and automated windows.
