Barrier Gate Arm

Barrier gate arms add security to parking areas for residential, commercial, and industrial uses. They are installed at the access points of garages and roads to secure traffic on both entrance and exit. Most barrier gate arms are integrated with sensors and other access control devices, such as card readers, vehicle sensors, and radio receivers.

How a Loop Detector Works

How a Loop Detector Works

Loop detectors have a magnetic field that can sense when a motor vehicle is present. It sends a signal to the gate operator’s control board. The control board then tells the gate arm what safe and secure operation to execute, considering the states of the other subsystems.

Barrier Gate Operators

Barrier gate operators are ideal when a higher level of security or traffic control is needed. They are tied into a complete system, and can be operated automatically by subsystems such as a card reader, keypad, or telephone entry system. Other subsystems are available as well, such as radio, photo eye, and remotely through a guard station kiosk.
