Clarke Instruments in collaboration with Solar & Electric Gates Ltd have developed a new solar powered turnstile.
Engineers from the two companies have worked together to develop the new design for the 480B-SOLAR fence line turnstile, based around Clarke Instrument Ltds’ robust 480B economy fence-line turnstile, Solar & Electric Gates Ltd’s solar panels and Paxton proximity cards.
The integrated solution is said to have many benefits and can handle up to 5,000 users.
The design has been developed for Rapid Deployment and comes with complete access control.
The new design is suitable for temporary construction sites, remote sites, permanent construction sites without a power source, and for emergency security requirements.
This design concept enables the delivery of the turnstile inclusive of a freestanding galvanised tread plate to which it is permanently fixed, so it can be placed on a flat level surface and is ready to use.
This eliminates the normal building site infra structure costs associated with installing turnstiles on the fence-line as it does not require mains electricity.
It has the added advantage of flexibility, enabling the rapid redeployment if for any reason the fence line entrance needs moving during the project. Simply lift on a fork lift and relocate.
Incorporated into the solution is a standby battery and solar panel combination designed for unlimited use in normal British weather.
The trickle charge from the solar panel should keep the battery topped up. If needed, the battery can be charged quickly from a 240V AC supply. The product is ready to use straight out of storage.
