The HV boom gate skid solution is a rugged boom gate with proven results outdoor, commonly used on railway lines, they are proven to last in any situation.
The basic operation of the boom gate is designed to operate with a radio receiver so that it can be signalled by an approaching vehicle. An ultrasonic sensor detects the passing vehicle underneath the boom and holds it up until the vehicle has passed. The ultrasonic sensor will stop the boom gate from closing on a vehicle if it senses one by restarting a timer controlling close time.
This allows for a safe operation of the boom gate ensuring it will not close on vehicles. The user can also manually signal the boom gate to come down by a second press of the gate button.
