Ready to meet your operational requirements

Versatile to meet access and operational requirements

The SW1000 motorized pedestrian gate provides a clear 36” opening width. To provide further operational flexibility, two SW1000 gates can be installed in tandem (SW1000-T), effectively doubling the clear passage width to 72”.  Each panel is driven by a powerful brushless DC motor with closed loop control to monitor position every 1/1000 of a second, providing smooth, quiet and precise movement.

The SW1000 is designed to operate in conjunction with an access control system or any device that can provide a dry contact output (such as a push button). The gate can open in one direction, or it can open in both directions for controlled in and controlled out applications.

Key Features:

  • 36” opening width for single gate
  • 72” opening width for tandem gate set
  • Single direction operation or bi-directional operation
  • Brushless DC motor using closed loop position control
  • Alarm activation if gate is forced open without receipt of open signal

  • Smooth and precise operation
  • Easy configuration and implementation

Simplified integration

Access Control and Visitor Management

Integrating the SW1000 into your facility is quick and easy. The pedestrian gate integrates with virtually any access control or visitor management system or a simple push button. A dedicated fire system input is provided and an output is available when the gate is forced open without authorization.

Due to the compact design, it is not possible to attach card readers to the SW1000 tower. Card readers are normally located on a wall or pedestal in front of the gate.

Key Features:

  • Simplified integration to access control and visitor management systems
  • Dedicated fire input

Safety features you shouldn’t be without

Built-in Safety

The SW1000 opens smoothly based on an activation signal without requiring the user to touch the gate. The dwell time (length of time the gate stays open) is configurable. Should the gate panel impact an obstruction during the opening or closing cycle, the intelligent drive system senses the impact and stops motion until the obstruction is removed. A dedicated fire system input is provided which, when received, causes the gate to open and remain open in the exit direction. Upon loss of power, the SW1000 waist high pedestrian gate panel can be moved freely with very minimal force.

Key Features:

  • No touch opening and closing
  • Impact detection
  • Minimal force required to force open
  • Simple integration with fire systems
  • Full 36″ opening for unrestricted passage
