ES850 mid-sized optical turnstiles are designed for small to mid-sized lobby/entry applications where aesthetics are important. These pedestals form pedestrian walkways to controlled areas and they will monitor high throughput pedestrian traffic flow for up to 30 people per minute per lane. Sensors ensure only one person enters for each authorized I.D. card that is presented, thus eliminating "tailgating."
Compatible with most card reader technologies and access control systems, each individual must be granted access by the facility's access control system in order to pass between the pedestals without activating an alarm.
The Designed Security, Inc. ES850 Series Optical Turnstile monitors pedestrian traffic flow through an access control point and assures that only one individual can pass for each valid card presented, thus eliminating “Tailgating”. This system utilizes sensing pedestals to form passageways at the entrance to a controlled area. An individual must be granted ACCESS by the facility’s access control system in order to pass between the pedestals without activating an ALARM. The system is compatible with any type of cardreader technology and can be field configured for CARD-IN/CARD-OUT, or CARD-IN/FREE-EXIT operation. The system inputs allow the unit to be bypassed remotely and the outputs can be used to indicate an intrusion alarm, to indicate an invalid card or to count individuals as they enter and exit. The Mid-Sized Optical Turnstile System is designed for small to mid-sized lobby/ entry applications where styling is important.
When a user presents a valid card an audible chime sounds and a green arrow illuminates to indicate that access has been granted. When the individual walks through the passageway the system is reset for the next user. If an individual walks through the passageway without being granted access, an alarm output contact will be activated which can be used to initiate appropriate security response.
