Cable Gate FAQ
What maximum width can you secure with the Cable Gate?
Can the Gate close while a vehicle is over the Cable?
If, for example, a car towing a trailer entered through the Gate and the photoelectric beam was temporarily re-established in the gap between the car and the trailer, the trailer would re-break the beam within two seconds and the Gate would therefore remain open until the trailer had cleared the Gate.
If the car towing a trailer happened to stop while entering through the Gate so that the photoelectric beam was re-established between the car and the trailer for two seconds, the Gate would attempt to close. However, if a load is applied to the cable while it is closing the Gate is programmed to sense the load and the cable will immediately drop back to the ground. Therefore as the cable rose and touched the neck of the trailer, the load would be sensed and the Gate would re-open immediately, thereby avoiding damage to the car or trailer and the Cable Gate.
Vehicle detection road loops can also be used to control the opening and closing of the Gate.
