    Ready to meet your operational requirements

    Versatile to meet access and operational requirements

    The SW1000 motorized pedestrian gate provides a clear 36” opening width. To provide further operational flexibility, two SW1000 gates can be installed in tandem (SW1000-T), effectively doubling the clear passage width to 72”.  Each panel is driven by a powerful brushless DC motor with closed loop control to monitor position every 1/1000 of a second, providing smooth, quiet and precise movement.

    The SW1000 is designed to operate in conjunction with an access control system or any device that can provide a dry contact output (such as a push button). The gate can open in one direction, or it can open in both directions for controlled in and controlled out applications.

    Key Features:

    36” opening width for single gate

    72” opening width for tandem gate set

    Single direction operation or bi-directional operation

    Brushless DC motor using closed loop position control

    Alarm activation if gate is forced open without receipt of open signal

    Added Benefits:

    Passage widths to meet most operational requirements

    Audible alarms notify nearby staff of an intrusion attempt

    Versatile to meet access requirements

    Smooth and precise operation

    Easy configuration and implementation

    Simplified integration

    Access Control and Visitor Management

    Integrating the SW1000 into your facility is quick and easy. The pedestrian gate integrates with virtually any access control or visitor management system or a simple push button. A dedicated fire system input is provided and an output is available when the gate is forced open without authorization.

    Due to the compact design, it is not possible to attach card readers to the SW1000 tower. Card readers are normally located on a wall or pedestal in front of the gate.

    Key Features:

    Simplified integration to access control and visitor management systems

    Dedicated fire input

    Safety features you shouldn’t be without

    Built-in Safety

    The SW1000 opens smoothly based on an activation signal without requiring the user to touch the gate. The dwell time (length of time the gate stays open) is configurable. Should the gate panel impact an obstruction during the opening or closing cycle, the intelligent drive system senses the impact and stops motion until the obstruction is removed. A dedicated fire system input is provided which, when received, causes the gate to open and remain open in the exit direction. Upon loss of power, the SW1000 waist high pedestrian gate panel can be moved freely with very minimal force.

    Key Features:

    No touch opening and closing

    Impact detection

    Minimal force required to force open

    Simple integration with fire systems

    Full 36″ opening for unrestricted passage
