Turnstile Access Control Systems Tripod Turnstile

Item No.: TH-TT308+
The Tripod Turnstile is a type of turnstile access control system consisting of three rotating horizontal arms. It efficiently regulates pedestrian entry, allowing only one person at a time, enhancing security in various environments such as transit stati

The Tripod Turnstile is a key component of turnstile access control systems, designed to manage and regulate pedestrian traffic in various environments. It consists of three rotating horizontal arms, resembling a tripod, which restrict or allow passage based on the control system in place.

One of the primary functions of the Tripod Turnstile is to enhance security by ensuring that only authorized individuals can enter a particular area. This is achieved through the integration of access control mechanisms such as RFID card readers, biometric scanners, or keypad systems. Users must present valid credentials or authenticate themselves to gain entry, preventing unauthorized access and maintaining the security of the controlled space.

The three rotating arms of the Tripod Turnstile serve as a physical barrier that allows the passage of only one person at a time. This design helps in preventing tailgating or piggybacking, where an unauthorized person might attempt to follow closely behind an authorized user to gain access illicitly. The turnstile's design is not only effective but also space-efficient, making it suitable for areas with limited space where a full gate or door might be impractical.

Tripod Turnstiles find applications in a variety of settings, including public transportation facilities, office buildings, stadiums, amusement parks, and other secure environments. They are particularly common at entrances and exits where controlled access is essential for security and safety reasons.

Beyond security, Tripod Turnstiles contribute to the efficient flow of pedestrian traffic. By allowing only one person at a time, they help prevent congestion and maintain a systematic entry and exit process. This is crucial in areas with high foot traffic, ensuring a smooth and organized movement of people.

In conclusion, the Tripod Turnstile is a vital component of turnstile access control systems, providing an effective and efficient solution for managing pedestrian traffic while enhancing security in diverse environments. Its robust design, integration capabilities, and contribution to controlled access make it a popular choice for various industries and applications.

Technical Characters

Turnstile Access Control Tripod Turnstiles are compact and cost-effective entrance solutions.
  • The pedestrian turnstile tripod turnstile has fully rainproofed 304 stainless steel housing, which is rust-resistant, solid, and durable.
  • Tripod turnstiles pedestrian turnstiles can be mounted for both indoor and outdoor locations. The IP rate is 54
  • It has an international standard relay output, which can be easily integrated with all kinds of third-party access control systems (i.e RFID, Fingerprint, Face recognition, Barcode, IR thermometer).
  • This pedestrian turnstile tripod turnstile gate is a semi-automatic one. You will need to push the arm slightly to open the gate when access is granted.
  • The reasonable design and high performance are to ensure the gates can move quickly and accurately, stably and quietly; with low-power consumption, energy conservation, and environment protection.
  • Durable, corrosion-resistant, heavy-duty, mold mechanism for extended service life
  • The mechanism is mold design. All the components are precise.  It makes the gate system operate smoothly, with low noise. A hydraulic damper can be added.
  • The design of the pedestrian turnstile tripod turnstile makes only one person pass at one time.
  • Single-directional or Bi-directional is an option.
  • LED directional indicator light on top
  • Solenoid valve: DC24V ±5%
  • Arm length: 510 mm
  • Mold Mechanism with hydraulic damper for shock absorbing
  • Reliability of the mechanism: 3 million, no-fault
  • Direction of rotation: Bidirectional
  • Method of arm dropping: drop automatically when the electricity is cut off.
  • Operational voltage: DC 24V ±5%
  • Voltage of indicator light: DC12V ±5%(standard)
  • Working temperature: -30℃~60℃
  • Humidity: 5%~90%
  • Waterproof: IP44
  • Time needed for opening: 0.2 s
  • Working environment: Indoor
  • Automatic clock function: if there is an open signal received,  but the visitor does not pass through the gate within a specific time (default 5s), the turnstile arm will lock automatically.
  • When power is off, tripod turnstile arms will drop down automatically to allow free passage, which is complying with fire safety requirements.
