    The SU2000 optical turnstile provides barrier free bi-directional access control in conjunction with a facility access control system. To enter, users present a valid credential which allows a single passage in the requested direction. Unauthorized entries, or attempts to tailgate on an authorized entry, are deterred through local and remote alarm signals. For people counting applications without access control requirements, please see the SU500 optical turnstile in the related products section below.

    Key Features:

    Advanced tailgating, crawl under, wrong way, presence and tampering detection

    Audio, visual and controller level interfaces

    Multiple operation modes

    Upload custom .wav files for alarm signals

    Virtually maintenance free

    Added Benefits:

    Secure and cost effective – minimizes staff requirements

    Intuitive operation for attendants and users

    High throughput rate (up to 40-60 ppm) to eliminate bottlenecks

    Unit can be easily configured to suit facility security requirements without having to purchase new equipment

    Integrates easily with 3rd party systems (i.e. cameras, guard signals)

    Audible alarms notify nearby security personnel of invalid entry attempts to create a more secure environment

    Easy to install and provides years of trouble free operation

    Simplified integration

    Access Control and Visitor Management

    The SU2000 optical turnstile incorporates into your facility with very minimal effort. It integrates with virtually any access control or visitor management system and accommodates a wide array of credential readers. Dedicated fire or life safety system inputs are provided and outputs can be used to turn on cameras, lock interior doors and provide remote notification. The result is a barrier-free solution that provides superb access control and visitor management for facilities worldwide.

    Lane Monitoring and Control

    Alvarado’s GateKeeper Monitoring and Control software allows operational management of SU2000 optical turnstiles over a TCP/IP network. Among its many features, GateKeeper allows authorized personnel to change lane configurations and provide override activations for special circumstances such as visitors and deliveries. Passage directions can also be changed (and individual turnstiles opened or closed) at pre-defined times to increase passage flow or heighten security during busy or slow periods.


    Key Features:

    Simplified integration to access control and visitor management systems

    Flexible credential reader attachment options allows you to use existing readers familiar to users

    Dedicated fire system input

    Multiple outputs available (i.e. counting, alarms) for streamlined integration with other 3rd party systems

    TCP/IP enabled for remote communication and control of turnstiles

    Never compromise safety

    Built-in Safety

    By nature of the design, a major advantage to the SU2000 barrier-free optical turnstile is just that – it’s barrier free. Since there is no barrier, free egress is always a possibility in the event of emergencies. Also included is a dedicated input for fire / life safety to deactivate the alarm output during emergencies. And since the same unit can be configured for either standard or accessible lane widths, it’s safe and easy to accommodate all types of traffic.

    Key Features:

    Barrier free design prevents entrapment

    Dedicated input for fire / life safety deactivates alarm for free egress

    Standard and handicapped passage width options provide safe passage for all persons


    The SU2000 optical turnstile is independently tested and certified by LA Testing Labs. It is also CE marked.
