Why are photo beams used with gate operators?

Safety is a main concern at AllSecurityEquiptment.com. For this reason we have chosen to discuss the use of photo beams within gate operators. Typically the majority of professionals in the security industry suggested that a gate operator should be equipped with either one or two photo beams to ensure safety. Photo beams are devices that transmit a beam of light across the area a gate opener is opening. This beam functions as a signal to the gate operator. If the beam is tripped it will prevent the gate operator from closing or reverse the gates motion. For example, if you have a gate opener installed in a residential area and a child runs past the beam when the gate is closing, the beam will sense the child and instead reverse the closing motion and open the gate once more. These types of devices are intended to detect the presence of an obstacle when the beam is interrupted. We highly recommend that when installing a gate operator you consider the use of a photo beam.

Popular photo beam brands include FAAC, EMX, Omron, Miller Edge, GTO and NICE.

Why installing a parking lot system will eliminate the need of an attendant?

Computerization has become the need of the hour and that is why many processes have been automated to cut down the cost and save time too. One of the processes that are being computerized at a rapid pace is the car parking system. Nowadays the car parking areas do not have attendants because they have been replaced with automated systems that are superior and reduce the problem of manual intervention too. These parking systems are used in malls, cinema halls, shopping centers and other important areas where people turn out in large numbers. There is no denial to the fact that the automated parking systems have brought about a huge change as it is more efficient as well as safe too.

There are unlimited advantages of installing the automated parking systems, a few of them are discussed below.

No attendant required

The first and the foremost benefit of installing this new system reduce the pressure of keeping the attendants who direct the public. With the help of the system, a printed slip is generated which gives you the permission to park the vehicle at the desired place. As there is no manual intervention, therefore managing the area becomes easy and more cars can be parked in a smaller area. This is the reason that the automated systems are gaining a lot of popularity and used in most of the public areas.

Book slots in advance

In many cities, there is a facility of advance booking during the weekends. This task is easily accomplished with the help of the computerized systems as your slot is booked in advance. This saves a lot of time and you just need to visit the place and park your car without any problem. This is a new facility which is not only beneficial for the public but helpful for the staff as well. With better management, they can definitely reduce the problems to a great extent.

Efficient management

The overall concept of using the automated Parking lot ticket dispenser is to make the process convenient as well as hassle free. Automation has made the process very fast because computerized slip is generated which takes just a few seconds. So in no time, you are allotted with the slot and the payment is also made. Thus, the public need not waste their time in standing in a queue especially during the weekends where there is a huge rush.

Customer satisfaction

No one wants to stand in a line and wait for their turn. This is not only inconvenient but at the same time taking as well. This is the reason that automated parking lot systems are being used to create more space and reduce the problems faced by the people. This has definitely increased the customer satisfaction and people are really happy with this new service. So you need not search the right space for your car but the same will be done automatically. Therefore, it is better to go with the automated systems than to rely on the attendants of this complicated task.

Looking for Liftmaster or Apollo Replacement Parts?

OK Techies, let’s talk about service calls, service trucks and all the other wonderful stuff you go thru the day dealing with…

I am sure that all of you out there have your own hand tools, power tools, specialty tools and some tools that you have designed and built for your own ease of work! However there are a few items that everyone should keep on a truck that does commercial and gated community service, one of the most frequently used barriers is the Mega Arm so it is imperative that you use the LIF-MA001 Board (which works with the Megaswing and Megaslide by simply swapping out the logic chip), also the LIF-MA003 24VDC motor, again this works with all Megaarms, Megaswings and Megaslides. Older LiftMaster operators will require you to have a ‘GL Board’ or the K-001A5566, then there is the ‘OMNI Board’  or the Q400E and this pretty much covers all of your LiftMaster – Elite/ Chamberlain operators .

If you are dealing with the Door King systems you’ll need a DK1601, DK4502 and DK 4602 for the operators and a DK2340 Battery Backup board.

If it is Apollo you service the 635-636/835-836/ETL/ 1050… These boards service all the Nice/Apollo operators

Along with a sleuth of peripherals like loop detector and other safety devices which should be multi voltage for economy and convenience…

So let’s stock our trucks and don’t return for service recalls

Magnetic Autocontrol Parking Barrier Gates

How about we talk today about the heavy duty, super commercial, very rugged and reliable Magnetic Autocontrol Barrier Gates.

Let’s start with the crown jewel of the family, the stuff that Magnetic shows off with, the TOLL, TOLL PRO and TOLL HISPEED.

The Toll barrier is the perfect barrier solution for high traffic toll systems. The barriers are available in two standard colors, white or orange. Each Toll contains the MGC control unit, 1.3 second open and close speeds, selectable auto-open on power failure, built in dual channel loop detector, additional optional swing away flange, and round MicroBoom.

The Toll Pro barriers are specifically designed for high use toll systems with lightning fast times of 0.9 seconds, on top of all the options that its little brother (The TOLL) offers with the added performance of the MGC-Pro controller.

Now the Toll Hi Speed barriers are suited highway type toll systems with short opening times of 0.6 seconds… the Hi Speed version offers an even higher number of cycles, dual-motor drive unit, and a specific MGC controller without loop detector.

These are then followed by the always reliable and dependable Parking PRO Series; these barriers are specially made for parking systems. They are designed for high functionality that works well in any parking lot or garage, with an opening time of 1.3 seconds and a max arm length of 12 feet and now it comes in four color options, white, orange, light grey, and dark grey. Armed with the MGC PRO control unit they offer a series of options like  programmable I/O, selectable auto-open on power failure feature, multiple open/close speeds, an integrated 2-channel loop detector module and a VarioBoom gate arm with a protective foam edge.

Which brings us to the Access PRO… these stylish barriers are probably the most cost effective barrier solution for access control to public garages and parking areas, company premises, or any other access control application that requires entry/exit thru a vehicular lane. With a gearbox suited for the longer arms and with an opening time of 4 seconds and a max arm length of 20 feet, like all Magnetic equipment it is now also available in four color options, white, orange, light grey, and dark grey and also contain the MGC PRO control unit with programmable I/O, multiple open/close speeds, an integrated 2-channel detector module, additional expansion options with plug-in modules, and a VarioBoom gate arm with a protective foam edge. Now this Access series also offers the Pro-H model with all the same great features as the Access Pro but here the housing is taller in height and comes with a straight MicroBoom instead of a VarioBoom so it allows the use of the GS01 boom skirt to makes it impossible for those pedestrian that insist on walking under the arm to do so, and the also offers the gigantic, huge XL model capable of lifting a 28’ to 33’ arm in 8 seconds…

Of course all the same, cool features you’ve come to expect from Magnetic are still available, like the articulated boom, breakaway flange, battery backup and custom colors along with some very cool and useful new ones…

So if you haven’t looked at Magnetic Autocontrol lately, swing by and take a look , you may just like what you see!
