The tripod turnstile is a type of pedestrian turnstile gate for access control systems. It consists of a main box, a frame, and three legs. It can be equipped with a number of access control devices, such as card readers, coin or token acceptors, ticketing systems, and other hardware. It can also be combined with a computer, software, and other identification system equipment to form an intelligent security system.
Tripod barriers can be equipped with a variety of sensors to monitor the environment, such as light, motion, and air pressure. The sensors can detect the presence of people in the passageway and notify personnel if there is an emergency. The sensors can provide data about the performance of the turnstile, including whether or not it’s working properly. This allows the operators to quickly identify the problem and take action.
Tripod turnstiles are more secure than other gates because they have three legs. Unauthorized personnel will find it difficult to climb or jump over them. They can also stop tailgating because they only allow one person at a given time to pass. This makes them perfect for areas that need ticket checks, like scenic spots, amusement park, cinemas and gyms. In addition, they can be integrated with the building alarm system, and when a fire or other emergency occurs, they will unlock to allow people to leave freely.
For some locations, it may be necessary to add a count device to the turnstile to keep track of the number of visitors and prevent illegal entry. The counters can be added to the turnstile’s gate and control panel to form a simple countstile, or they can be attached to the entrance channels of each side to form an intelligent counterstile system. The counting device may also be used in conjunction with other equipment such as fingerprint scanners, smart cards, barcode readers, etc. to create an advanced counting turnstile system.
Unlike the flap barrier turnstile, which uses a pneumatic arm to hold up the barrier, the tripod barrier turnstile has an electromagnet that lifts the iron block and activates the door. The electromagnet is powered by a DC12V power supply. It can be inspected by examining the drive board and ensuring that the four corner screws are tight and that the electromagnet’s pull-in gap is appropriate. It is also a good idea to check the motor’s contact relay for any signs of wear or damage. If the relay is damaged, it can be replaced with a new one.
