Late last year ECI was called to install swing gate operators at a southern Cook County location shown above. We furnished and installed two Nice/HySecurity‘s SwingSmart™ automatic swing gate operators for this new dual swing gate location. (A close up view of one of the swing gate operators is shown below.)
Our work included furnishing and installing three vehicle detector loops shown as cut marks above. They sense either when a vehicle enters or exits so the gates can open and/or close when the vehicle is clear of the moving gates.
We installed the included photo-electric beam to protect against entrapment. The ends are barely visible near the bottoms of the gate posts. It detects and opens the gates if people or obstacles are sensed when the beam is interrupted while the gates are closing. Inputs are included for additional entrapment sensors (i.e. edge sensors if the leaf swings open against a wall or other fixed object).
We connected the owner supplied card access system as well. Authorized holders use their access credentials to open gates to drive in. Egress is free when a detector loop senses a vehicle and relays the gates to open.
Each operator can each move a gate leaf that weighs up to 1,300 pounds and is a maximum of 12 feet long. The operators have 70 programmable settings to customize user requirements and opening and closing speeds are field adjustable.
Standard back up batteries provide up to 300 cycles if AC power fails. The optional extended batteries can provide up to 1,200 cycles. The operators carry a five-year commercial and a seven-year residential warranty.
