For companies looking to add a physical entry barrier to their office, Speed Gates are often the specified solution. Customisable to complement the existing office interior, Speed Gates are able to provide a high level of throughput, reducing overcrowding at peak times. It is critical in order to maintain the flow of users and prevent unauthorised access that Speed Gates are fully functional. Any malfunction can result in unauthorised users being undetected, false alarms or an entire lane being unusable until the error is resolved. All of these can cause disruption and inconvenience to staff and visitors along with creating a poor first impression for visitors.
Our auto-correction Speed Gate technology has been developed to prevent situations like this arising. This is a standard feature that enables the Speed Gate lane to still function even if a fault occurs with one of the sensors. If one or more of the optical sensors reports a fault, the Speed Gate automatically reports an error and turns off the activity of the failed optical sensor to prevent false alarms.
If the system detects dirt or an obstruction to the sensor beam, the error will be reported and the individual sensor affected will be deactivated, once the sensor bar is cleaned or the obstruction is removed the sensor will automatically reactivate.
Auto-correction technology enables the Speed Gate to function correctly with only 3 optical sensors on each sensor bar. For Example if the Speed Gate has 36 pairs of optical sensors, up to 12 sensors could have reported a fault and the Speed Gate would still continue to function correctly.
Any sensor failure is automatically reported in the Speed Gates TMON software, enabling the user to quickly identify and rectify any faults if they occur.
