HMI - Human Machine Interface

This user-friendly touch screen may be used to monitor and control any of Frontier Pitts automated products in place of push button consoles. It continually monitors the status of the system, providing an alarm if required. The unit is self-contained and stand-alone. With the use of a wireless link, no cables are required between the HMI and our equipment; alternatively a serial cable can be used to link the access control to the specified PC.

Safety Photocells

Photocells are beams of light fitted across the road way to monitor vehicle and pedestrian movement

An infra-beam which spans the aperture of the gate opening. If an object breaks this beam, the gates will stop & reverse.

Safety Lasers

Safety Lasers are multiple beams of light fitted across the road way to monitor vehicle and pedestrian movement

A high precision infra-beam technology ensure optimal safety which spans the aperture of the gate opening. If an object breaks these beams, the gates will stop & reverse.

Safety Vehicle Detector Loop

Safety Vehicle detector loops cut into the road surface to detect vehicles. These will prevent the equipment from closing/lowering on a vehicle within the aperture. For special loops, please see the Loop page

Traffic Light Systems

Traffic Light Systems can be installed with all automatic security equipment installations. Frontier Pitts highly recommend a traffic light system be installed in conjunction with a Road Blocker and Rising Bollard installations to ensure drivers are notified when the equipment is fully lowered and therefore safe to proceed.

Traffic lights will "FULL" signs are also available to notify drivers if there are spaces left in the car park

Wig Wag Light signals are ideal for applications where clear and early warnings are essential, i.e. road/rail level crossings

Control System Pedestals

A range of pedestals are available to house the access control system next to the automatic security equipment. This includes standard height, HGV height, dual height (both at car height and HGV height level) and swan-neck pedestals.
