Magnetic Automation installed light curtains on an MCG cantilever gate at
a high-end security facility as part of additional safety measures.
The light curtains were installed at the gate entrance for additional
safety because of the varying types of vehicles accessing the gate. Since the
vehicles had different sizes and shapes, the existing PE beams and underground
loops were unable to detect some of these vehicles resulting in accidental
closing of the gates.
By installing light curtains, the facility was able to ensure all
vehicles going through the gate entrance/exit could be definitively detected. Working
in conjunction with the existing PE beams and ground loops, the light curtains
safeguard against accidental closing of the sliding gates.
Magnetic’s light curtains installed at the facility feature about 150 PE
beams criss-crossing through the opening and detecting everything that goes
through the gates. Operating through 32 channels and an active area of 1400mm
with criss-crossing beams, the light curtains will ensure no truck or any type
of vehicle can go through undetected.
A customised 3-tier card reader bollard was also
fully integrated with the site’s access security system.
