870 Gate Drives – Light/Medium Swing Gates

Project Description

The Type 870 Gate Drives for light/medium industrial swing gates are compatible with most forms of electronic control including card readers, audio-porter, proximity reader and ground loop controllers for auto-exit or inhibit re-close. Remote control from reception/guardroom can be supplied via open/close/stop control switching with status sensing indication.

Note: Gate-drives are normally fitted on the secure side with inward opening swing gates. Site surveys are recommended to ensure correct application.
