Rotech Group Pty Ltd announces the latest version of their Australian made Sentinel PL boom gates featuring PLC control.
The unique Sentinel PL 400 boom gate is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC), allowing the settings to be customised to suit specific application needs. A handheld programmer with LCD display allows simple setup and maintenance.
Sentinel PL 400 boom gates offer a single solution for different applications complete with increased safety and new features. The boom gate can be programmed to suit any specific application using the standard PL program, adding choice of accessories and customising several parameters.
The PL control panel allows easy installation of several accessories and options for optimum flexibility and safety. These include up to 3 loop detectors (2 with in-built diagnostics) for extra safety to cover a wider area; choice of 12 or 24vdc power supplies to connect any accessory; in-built traffic light controls eliminating the need to purchase an additional controller to regulate vehicle and pedestrian traffic; status indication to inform security personnel whether the boom pole is down, open or in motion; adjustable time delay for the boom pole to close after a vehicle leaves the loop or beam, preventing accidents; adjustable auto close time; and memory input to increase throughput of cars.
