  • Lighted Keypad entry and exit with optional time zone code access
  • Telephone entry via home line or dedicated number with remote programming and access capabilities, including software for computer upload and monitoring
  • Wireless Access with voice communication via VHF/UHF base station and portable handsets
  • Vehicle and Personnel access via HID proximity readers, barcode scanners, IDFlex similar to EZPass for high volume traffic and monitoring , and more.
  • Radio receiver and remote transmitter capability compatible with HomeLink in-vehicle systems
  • Keypad pedestals and custom housings for specialty applications including columns and walls

  • Loop Controls

    Wireless access control
    Magnetic loops are the mainstay of traffic signal control and gate control and safety uses the same technology when it comes to providing reliable gate control.

  • Loop entry and exit control for free access or timed for controlled restricted access
  • Safety and close loops for swing, sliding and barrier/pivot type gates
  • Loop sensors for vehicle detection, security alerts and surveillance
  • Various types for paved, unpaved and specialty roadway applications

  • Safety Systems

    Gate Operators
    Incorporating safety into a gate system is critical to not only preventing vehicle damage but ensuring the safety of people as they pass back and forth through the entry point you have provided. Emergency vehicle access is also critical to gain access to the property in an emergency situation. UL325 sets standards for gate design and operator function and, in order to accomplish this, the use of various types of products is necessary to prevent entrapment.

  • Inherent gate operator entrapment sensing required on all operators
  • PhotoEyes, both reflective and emitter/receiver
  • Safety edge systems using wireless technology via RF control
  • Audible/visible warning during gate operation via alarm and strobe or beacon
  • Loop controls for vehicle detection- can be set for presence or pulse sensing
  • Emergency access via strobe sensor, Knox-Box or Siren Operated Sensor (SOS) used by local fire, rescue and law enforcement as required.
  • Battery backup systems for gate operators and access controls.
