Safe, Secure Operation
MST-TE full height turnstiles provide safe and secure, touch-free operation. The motorized rotation is smooth and controlled, and touchless operation eliminates the need for the user to touch the turnstile.
If the arms impact an object during rotation, the full height turnstile’s intelligent motor drive system detects the impact and stops the rotation. This control increases user safety. After each passage, the rotating section of the full height turnstile smoothly returns to the home position and locks in place, ready for the next user.
In secured applications, the MST-TE is typically configured for fail-lock in the entrance direction and fail-safe in the exit direction. When power is removed from the turnstile this prevents people from entering but allows personnel to exit. Turnstiles configured for fail-lock in the exit direction can also provide free egress using local key override controls. Other ordering options are available and changing between fail-lock and fail-safe is easily accomplished in the field. A dedicated input for fire systems also provides free egress in the event of emergencies.
