UltraQ ACT

Optical Admission Gate

The UltraQ ACT is the most compact, contactless admission control solution from Alvarado™ that offers intelligent tailgate detection and high throughput ticket validation support for guests. When a guest presents a valid ticket, the motorized panels open away from the guest, providing a clear path for quick entry. A mobile platform option is available for portable deployment.


An intuitive guest experience

UltraQ ACT

The UltraQ ACT utilizes tandem motorized swing barriers, distributed processing, and integrated optical sensors to control entry. The optical sensors detect guests, determine the direction of guest movement and detect unauthorized guests. Once a ticket is presented the doors will open and remain open until the lane is cleared and no additional tickets have been presented. If an unauthorized guests attempts to tailgate behind an authorized guest and audible alarm is triggered to alert nearby staff. In addition to detecting tailgating attempts on valid entries, the UltraQ ACT’s sensors prevent it’s barriers from closing on guests. If the barriers do encounter an obstruction upon either opening or closing, the UltraQ ACT’s software detects the obstruction and takes corrective action, precisely controlling the motors to minimize impact.

Like all Alvarado intelligent admission devices, the UltraQ scan device allows guests to self-validate entry credentials. Easy-to-use guest self-validation using superior RFID / NFC and digital barcode readers – even in bright sunlight – provides improved throughput rates, and allows attendants to focus their attention on welcoming and/or assisting guests. The UltraQ device can also be rotated fully to face either direction, allowing the UltraQ ACT the versatility to also function for scanned exits. This is useful for scenarios that use a dedicated exit lane where tickets can be marked for re-entry – easily giving guests the option to scan their tickets, temporarily leave the venue, and be allowed re-entry once they return.
