Product Overview

The all steel cabinet houses the heavy duty motor plate permanent capacitor 4 pole T.E.F.C. motor, which powers the sinusoidal drive mechanism via an industrial grade low ratio gearbox. Two heavy duty bearings support the drive shaft; this having 2 machined cams to activate the adjustable limit switches to control the boom travel.

The hinged/removable lockable steel top cover provides access to the drive mechanism.  The cabinet houses the barrier ‘parking logic’ control panel, providing the necessary power supply isolator, fuses, thermal overload trips and motor contactors.

An integral support is provided to maintain the aluminium boom in the horizontal position.

For safety reasons pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles are advised not to use a barrier controlled roadway, additional safety measures can be incorporated into the barrier system if required. The barrier can be interfaced with existing or new access control systems.
