Boom Barrier Solution
Boom barrier solution which is also known as a boom gate is a bar or pole pivoted to allow the boom to block vehicular access through a controlled point. Typically, the tip of a boom gate rises in a vertical arc to a near vertical position. Boom gates are often counterweighted, so the pole is easily tipped. Boom gates are paired either end to end or offset appropriately to block traffic in both directions. Some boom gates also have a second arm which hangs 300 to 400 mm below the upper arm when lowered, to increase approach visibility, and which hangs on links so it lies flat with the main boom as the barrier is raised. Some barriers also feature a pivot roughly half way, whereas the barrier is raised, the outermost half remains horizontal, with the barrier resembling an upside-down L when raised.
There are various technologies for an automatic boom barrier. One of them is electro-mechanical, which is widely used due to its reliability. The other technologies are often manufacturer specific. These electro-mechanical devices come with 24VDC drive units which can run continuously without generating heat, so electro-mechanical boom barriers can be operated continuously and in an intensive duty cycle.
An automatic boom barrier can be operated through:
• Push Button
• Remote control
• RFID Tags / RFID Reader
• Loop Detectors
• Any third-party access control device
