Automatic “Anti-panic” function applied for model TBС-01.1 is a modern solution which excludes the direct physical involvement. Automatic “Anti-panic” barrier arms unlike the mechanical ones exclude their unsanctioned folding by unauthorized people.

When power supply is restored or Fire Alarm signal is removed, the arm shall be manually set into operating position.

Built-in readers and a card capture reader will save you time and expenses for purchase and installation of additional equipment that this turnstile already has. When operated in an ACS the TBC-01.1 is able to capture temporary passes from guests when they leave the facility.

The turnstile top cover features LED direction indicators with bright pictograms displaying a status of the turnstile, indicating authorized/ not authorized passage direction: green arrow indicates direction of authorized passage, while stop signal indicates the turnstile is locked and passage is not allowed.

On the front top cover at exit way there is a card capture slot with internal illumination. A container for collecting cards is locked and is easy to access to empty it.

The card capture reader can be positioned at either entrance way or exit way.

The turnstile can be operated:

  • as a stand-alone unit controlled from a remote control panel (delivered with a standard delivery set) or from a wireless remote control
  • from an access control system (ACS) via a controller

When controlled from an ACS, the turnstile can be configured to operate in either pulse control mode or potential control mode. This control mode choice option ensures proper operation of the turnstile under access control systems of different manufacturers, including capability to use lock controllers with outputs supporting potential control mode. Galvanic decoupling of the turnstile outputs from an ACS is provided for.

Using the turnstile in an ACS allows for correct register of personnel attendance time, especially relevant for Time and Attendance systems.

The turnstile is a normally closed unit– stays locked until a passage authorizing signal is received, or the turnstile is unlocked with a mechanical release key. The turnstile can be unlocked by a signal from a fire alarm system.

In case of emergency the turnstile can be unlocked with a mechanical release key, ensuring free rotation of barrier arms in both directions. The turnstile as standard comes with a mechanical release lock built-in into the turnstile housing and a set of keys.

The turnstile can optionally be supplied with anti-panic folding arms to ensure free passageway in emergency situations without use of special keys or tools.

Thanks to reduced power consumption the turnstile is supplied with safe voltage (max. 14V).

The turnstile can be completed with matching railings.
