SU 3500 Optical Turnstile with Barrier Wings

The newly redesigned SU3500 incorporates Alvarado’s latest optical detection and motor control technology.

The Supervisor 3500 has a substantial, authoritative profile that works well in large lobby or entrance areas. The hand polished exterior satin stainless cladding is set off beautifully by the turnstile’s black solid surface acrylic lid.

In normal operating mode, when a valid credential is presented, the clear barriers quickly retract into the cabinet in approximately .25 seconds, creating a clear passageway for the user. As the user passes through the turnstile, the barriers either smoothly return to the closed position (ready for the next valid credential), or, if another credential has been presented, the barriers remain open for the next users’ passage. Called “stacking” of credentials, this feature supports high user throughput.

The barrier panels are controlled via brushless DC motors through closed loop position control that monitors panel position every 1/1000 of a second. The panel movement is quick, precise and constantly monitored for utmost safety.

User passage and detection is accomplished using Alvarado’s newest generation optics and sophisticated detection software. The SU3500 provides a near perfect blend of safety, security and operational functionality.

There are additional operating mode capabilities for the SU3500 optical turnstile. See the SU3500 Descriptive Specifications for additional information or contact your Alvarado representative for additional information.

Use of the SU3500 is highly intuitive for users and staff. Illuminated status icons on the lid and audible sounds prompt users, and provide clear notification of card status. The various alarm conditions (e.g., unauthorized entry; loitering in lane; tailgating, etc.) are differentiated by light flashing patterns and through the use of sounds which differentiate depending on the type of alarm. The SU3500 comes with standard sounds or users can substitute their own custom audio.

The SU3500 has multiple passage modes. The turnstile can provide controlled operation in both directions (card in/card out). The turnstile can also provide controlled entry with free passage exit for applications where users are not required to “credential out" for exit. In free passage mode, users can walk directly into the passage lane at a normal pedestrian pace and the panels will automatically open without requiring the user to slow down. Individual turnstiles or select travel directions (e.g., entry as opposed to both entry and exit) can also be closed during off hours or slow periods.

The SU3500 optical turnstile is also highly effective at deterring and detecting unwanted entry. Alvarado’s sophisticated detection technology detects unauthorized access attempts and "tailgating" behind an authorized user. Lower crawl sensors detect crawl under attempts. In the event of an invalid entry or exit attempt, the turnstile lights and sounds notify the user and alert attendants. Additional notification outputs are also provided, allowing integration with remote alarms, door locks, CCTV or other devices.
