Model 137SS/FL and Model 137SS/AL Drop Arm Turnstiles

Perey Turnstiles manufactures a unique product line for use by people who need BOTH clear passageway from 16″ to 72″ wide AND the security of a tripod Turnstile – the Drop Arm Turnstile. This provides access control functions similar to that of a tripod-turnstile while allowing a free passage width adequate for wheel chairs, carts, etc. The Model 137SS/xx is designed for use in stadium suite access areas, attractive lobbies and corporate headquarters.

The Drop Arm Turnstile has one or two passage barring arms that drop into recesses in the cabinet. An array of optical sensors monitor the passageway and provides optical-turnstile alarm functionality. Once the barrier has dropped out of the passageway, the unit becomes a completely functional optical turnstile.

We have been manufacturing Optical Turnstiles since the late 1950′s. We have often found that since Optical Turnstiles do not have barriers, the timing of when alarms are triggered and the pattern of traffic flow has a far greater impact on Optical Turnstile use than they have on Tripod Turnstile use (when there is a barrier people tend to be sure they are allowed to pass through long before they are in the turnstile’s passageway).

By adding a barrier arm, the Drop Arm Turnstile provides a compromise between the greater security of a tripod turnstile and the openness of an optical turnstile.

We have recently added a remote programming feature to our Optical Turnstile controller. Our new “SuperController” can be remotely programmed to meet a customer’s changing requirements. This can be accomplished without the need for a factory technician’s visit.

When operational requirements change, simply call us with the new requirements and we will e-mail you the new programming, upload and test the new program using a laptop computer.

All of our Drop Arm Turnstiles are programmable to allow the following features:

a. Uni-Directional Operation
b. Bi-Directional Operation
c. Remote “Lockout” Of One Or Both Directions
d. Unauthorized Entry Alarm Local and Remote
e. Unauthorized Exit Alarm Local and Remote
f. Piggy Backing Alarm Local and Remote
g. Package Only Entry Alarm Local and Remote
h. Package Only Exit Alarm Local and Remote
i. Slow Travel Alarm Local and Remote
j. Walk Away Alarm Local and Remote
k. Crawl Alarm Local and Remote

The Model “137SS/xx” is designed for use in the most attractive lobbies and corporate headquarters.

The Model “137SS/xx” includes an ANSI #304 stainless steel cabinet. It has an array of industrially-hardened aperture controlled sensors that monitor the passageway. The “brain” of the Model “137SS/xx” is our new “SuperController”.

The Model “137SS/xx” can be customized to fit the particular needs of an application. Custom features such as marble tops, added or reduced length and customized reader mounting is available along with customized indicator lights.

Short Form Specification

WEIGHT: Fixed 170 lbs. Net – 210 lbs. crated.

COVER: ANSI #4 Stainless steel with #4 finish, .078″ thick, 0.25″ radii corners, sides 2.5″ deep.

CABINET: ANSI #4 Stainless steel with #4 finish. Welded standing rib reinforced design double wall (cavity) construction. Each wall .078″ thick, 1/4″ thick stainless steel base plate. Electronics housing with access door and two locks.

BARRIER ARM: ANSI #304 Stainless Steel tubing with #4 finish 1.5″ diameter with spun closed end and .054″ wall thickness. Each arms length shall be sufficient to insure a 4″ gap between the ends of the arms in the passage barring position. Arm shall drop in the vertical plane from a passage barring position into a recessed cavity in the cabinet.

PASSAGEWAY: When Barrier Arms drop, passageway shall be completely free allowing for the unencumbered passage width to accommodate the layout.

BARRIER ARM MECHANISM: The Barrier Arms shall be operated by a motor-and-chain drive system with motion limit switching. A magnetic clutch will be employed for safety slippage to minimize the possible impact on obstructions to arm passage and for fail-safe function. Motor controls will be by industrial heavy-duty switches and relays with service rating of 3,000,000 cycles.

DROP ARM TURNSTILE ELECTRONICS: The passageway shall be monitored by an array of 16 industrially hardened water and oil sealed coded infrared sensor arrays and one “SuperController” of the latest generation. Emitters of the coded infra-red signal shall be in the cabinet opposite the primary arm mechanism. The drop arm turnstile shall have intelligence capable of the operational functions and alarm functions below. It shall be capable of being programmed by the owner for changes in functions and alarms without the need for a factory technician’s visit.

a. Uni-Directional Operation
