Continuing to deliver the quality and performance you expect from Alvarado products

Updates to Secured Entry Control Products:

Updates include:

A new web enabled version of our configuration application (still called LConfig) has been released. Included at no cost with all Alvarado optical turnstiles, the new LConfig application allows configuration and troubleshooting of all Alvarado optical turnstiles through use of a tablet or smart phone.

Alvarado has also released a new operational mode, called Visitor Mode, that simplifies passages of large groups without credentials and provides a count output of all passages. The mode is implemented through either a push button or Alvarado’s GateKeeper attendant control and monitoring software.

The electronics, optics and motion control have been upgraded in all our optical turnstiles to incorporate Alvarado’s latest technology developments.

SU3000 and SU3500 updates include:

  • Improved mechanical reliability
  • Closed loop motion control for quick and precise panel or arm movement
  • Distributed processing and advanced optical detection for improved object detection and improved overall performance
  • IP Enabled, allowing configuration and operational management of the products over a TCP/IP network

SU2000 updates include:

  • Distributed processing and advanced optical detection for improved object detection and improved overall performance
  • IP Enabled, allowing configuration and operational management of the products over a TCP/IP network

Updates include:

  • Substantially increased lightning and surge protection
  • Board surface is conformal coated providing enhanced environmental protection
  • Solenoids are now controlled via pulse width modulation, reducing heat, power consumption and solenoid wear.
  • User Notification Activation Lights option (JS-2 – shown below) now provides two operational modes (either red/green, or yellow/red/green), selected through a dipswitch on the Control Board.
  • JS-2 LED light board has also been redesigned to operate at a substantially cooler temperature, significantly extending board life.
  • Optional upgrade allows the Control Board to communicate unlock and rotation feedback signals through the use of RS-232 commands.

Updates to Sports and Entertainment Products:

Updates include:

The electronics and optics of the SU500 optical counting turnstiles have been redesigned.

  • Distributed processing and advanced optical detection for improved counting accuracy
  • IP Enabled, allowing the SU500 to install directly onto an Ethernet network and communicate counts over the network to Alvarado’s GateWatch facility counting software


Updates to Crowd Control Products:

Updates include:

CSG and SSG gates now have an option to add a latch to hold the gate arm in place when closed. The gates can be configured to swing in either direction or bi-directionally.
