Magnetic Barriers: key components you should know
The barrier housing is attached by four foundation anchors via two attachment profiles. The housing of Magentic barrier is painted RAL 2000 and comes with an IP 54 protection rating.
The Magnetic barrier gates are operated by its own drive unit MHTM™ Drive which features small dimensions, high torque, and low energy consumption.
The high torque guarantees the best operation even under severe weather conditions. The drive unit combines the motor, motor control, and gearing.
Magnetic offers a variety of boom lengths, numerous extras like illumination elements and expansion sets, allowing the tailored implementation of Magnetic barriers for various uses.
The booms come with skirt elements made of plastic and aluminium, over-climb protection and break-away flange. The types of booms offered include Varioboom, Microboom and Articulated booms. Also the round booms and soft booms.
The lever system of a barrier comes with a balancing spring that exactly balances the barrier boom weight. These balancing springs are pre-set in the factory.
Magnetic uses two spring types. Depending on the application case, you will have to set the spring tension or use additional springs or use springs with a different spring rate.
Most of the Magnetic barriers control units come with a safety light barrier, which is a photoelectric transmitter that projects an array of synchronised, parallel infrared light beams to a receiver unit. When a vehicle interrupts one, the safety barrier sends a signal to the controller to open the barrier.
The barriers can also be equipped with a flange set (FLVB02) is designed especially for the parking industry. It enables the ejection of the whole barrier boom after it was hit by a vehicle. The beam can be simply reinstalled after the crash.
The control unit MGC and MGC Pro is compliant with EN 13849. It is located directly underneath the top cover of the barrier housing. The control unit features variable I/O assignment, expandable expansion of control system, eight digital inputs.
While MGC Pro control system is integrable with Ethernet interface, a radio module or a counting module for determining the number of parking spaces still available.
MGC Vs MGC Pro
For barriers with an MGC-Pro control unit, the functions of the digital inputs and outputs can be parameterised freely. For barriers with an MGC control unit, the functions of the inputs are firmly assigned.
Magnetic barriers come with a range of accessories that improve the safety and operation of the boom barriers. Some of the accessories include – Boom locking systems, Battery Backup, Swing-Away flange, LED illumination strips, Extension Set VarioBoom, Warning Lights on top of the barriers, Boom skirt etc.
