DC Solutions Mega Arm Sprint and Mega Arm Sprint Tower DC Barrier Gate Operator
The Mega Arm Sprint and Mega Arm Sprint Tower are DC-powered, high-speed additions to the DC Solutions® family of gate operators. Designed with a 24V DC (1/2 HP equivalent) motor, these models provide exceptional speed, making them ideal for parking applications. Constructed with an aluminum alloy chassis, they´re corrosion resistant and light enough for one person to carry and install. The heavy-duty motor supports 10,000 cycles per day with an operator speed of .9 seconds to open or close.
The DC Solutions Mega Arm Sprint and Mega Arm Sprint Tower was made to be unique in the industry through innovative design and solid engineering. Its single State of the Art universal electronics control board eliminates the need for mechanical limit switches, relays and contactors. Arm position is limited by a magnet mounted on the drive shaft which is sensed by two magnetic sensors on the electronics controller. Its full service controller is capable of accepting inputs from telephone entry, loop detectors, card readers, push buttons, barcode scanners, and is equipped with multiple vehicle memory buffer. Built in regulated 24VDC backed up power provided for accessories (detectors, receivers, card readers). The standard break away arm design can allow the arm to be reused many times. Finally, its modern design and cutting edge technology will make the MEGA SPRINT the perfect choice for all your parking control applications.
No power? No problem!
Built-in battery backup provides seamless operation of the gate operator and all DC control and sensing devices in the event of a power loss.
