Alvarado SU4500 Swinging Barrier Optical Turnstile

The SU4500 is Alvarado’s most compact barrier optical turnstile. Designed for high-end facilities where space is at a premium, the SU4500 has a compact installation footprint but doesn’t compromise on security, performance or looks.

The SU4500 is a stunning combination of security, safety, and aesthetics in a form-fitting installation footprint. Compact cabinetry combined with liberal use of crystal-clear materials provides a modern look that accentuates installation areas. The attractive look of the SU4500 can be further enhanced through an optional lighting package which allows users to illuminate the side panels (and the top and end lights, if desired) in any RGB color and create unique transition effects. Provided configuration software allows users to change lighting colors and transitions.

The SU4500 swinging barrier optical turnstile provides bi-directional access control in conjunction with a facility access control system. To enter, users present a valid credential which opens the turnstile’s motorized barriers away from the user, allowing a single passage in the requested direction. If an unauthorized user attempts to tailgate on a valid entry, or attempts to enter without authorization, the integrated sensors recognize the illegal passage attempt and sound an alarm. The SU4500 has a number of operational modes and features that provide a superb combination of security, safety and high user throughput.

The SU4500 is an IP enabled device. Core turnstile settings are adjusted in the field using an included browser-based application. Using a PC, tablet or smartphone, configurable features – such as audio sounds, motor settings, detection settings, tailgate settings, and alarm timer settings – are set and changed over a TCP/IP network. For installations where turnstiles are not networked, configuration changes are easily made by plugging directly into the turnstile’s configuration port.

The SU4500 provides highly evolved safety features. Strategically placed safety sensors are constantly monitored to instantaneously stop the moving panels if a person or object is detected. In the highly unlikely event of contact with a moving panel, our intelligent closed-loop motor drive system detects the impact and immediately stops the moving panel. The drive system offers variable panel holding force to balance security with local life safety regulations. When the optical turnstile receives a fire/life safety input, the barriers open in the exit direction and remain open until reset. In the event of power loss, the barrier panels can be moved freely with very minimal force.
