    How to install an ESD turnstile?

    The ESD gate installation mainly involves the installation and debugging of ESD turnstile gate system software. It is necessary to first set the IP of the ESD tester to ensure that it is on the same local area network as the computer where the software is installed. The software installation package and database installation package will be sent to the customer in advance. For specific installation steps, please refer to the video below.

    ESD turnstile gate system composition:

    ESD turnstile gate system is mainly composed of the electrostatic tester, ESD turnstile gate, central controller, inductive card reader, power supply, remote communicator, management computer, and server. Through the access control system, the access controller analyzes the authority of the swipe card personnel, carries out the corresponding static electricity test, and releases static electricity.

    After the test is qualified, the channel will automatically release the static electricity (if the test is unqualified, the static electricity tester will automatically release its static electricity to ensure safety), and the employees can enter the indoor safe environment to avoid the damage to electronic devices caused by the static electricity carried in by the external environment.

    Electrostatic tester

    The electrostatic tester is the core component of the ESD turnstile gate system. It indirectly reflects the electrostatic index of the human body by testing the resistance of the human body, so as to ensure that the tested person is qualified to wear shoes, wristbands, etc. at the same time, it outputs signals to the subsequent components to drive the channel mechanism.  

    According to the grouping signal of the central controller, the card swiper can be operated in four situations: hand and foot measurement, hand-only measurement, foot-only measurement, and no ESD detection.

    ESD Turnstile

    ESD detector and inductive card reader are equipped in the entrance direction of the ESD turnstile gate, and one person can pass through after the card swiping and electrostatic detection are qualified. The outside direction is also equipped with an inductive card reader for the company to set a two-way channel.

    The exit ESD turnstile gate is equipped with an out-of-office inductive card reader, which can be set to swipe the card to go out or to go out freely.

    Central controller  

    Save the employee’s information, determine whether the employee is allowed to pass the test according to the card swiping signal, send it to the electrostatic tester, and then drive the three roller brake mechanisms according to the output signal of the electrostatic tester.

    Inductive card reader:  

    Receive the swipe card signal and send it to the central controller for discrimination.  

    Power supply:  

    Provide power supply to all institutions.  

    Remote communicator:  

    The communication between the central controller and the computer is provided to complete the setting and data acquisition.  

     Management computer:  

     Install ESD turnstile gate system management software.

    Server (optional)  

    The existing Microsoft SQL Server database management system of the company can be used to install an ESD turnstile gate system database.

    Operation Steps: 

    Test preparation: the tester shall be prepared for a static test (which mainly refers to wearing anti-static shoes) and stand on the metal pad of the tester with both feet. If you still need to test the electrostatic wrist strap, please insert it into the wrist strap test hole on the tester.

    Identification: the tester pastes the personal identification card close to the inductive card reader, and the reader will sound “tick” when the induction is successful. At this time, the central controller has successfully completed the identification. The system will automatically conduct an internal comparison, watch the LED display test results on the tester, or watch the LED LCD on the gate (the maximum test time is 0-5s, which can be adjusted. If it exceeds 5S, you need to swipe the card again for the test)

    Static test: after hearing the “tick” of the reader, touch the test button with the right index finger or press the test button (according to different models) within 5 seconds to carry out the static test.  

    Access control release: when the indicator light of the tester is all green and the buzzer no longer rings, the tester can pass through the tripod turnstile gate, and the tripod turnstile gate will lock again after the set time (generally 5 seconds).  

    After swiping the card, you can go out directly, or you can go out directly without swiping the card.

    The system automatically uploads the test result data to the PC database for storage. The storage quantity is unlimited and will not be lost after power failure for 10 years.

    After testing, the average time for one person to pass the ESD turnstile gate system is shortened to 5-6 seconds.

    How to choose the ESD turnstile?

    ESD turnstile gate system is composed of a human body comprehensive tester, footplate, display screen, ESD turnstile gate, etc. However, there are many types of ESD turnstile gates, such as tripod turnstile gate, flap barrier turnstile, swing turnstile gate, speed gates, etc. Users generally do not know their differences and do not know how to choose them. Next, let’s introduce how to choose the ESD turnstile gate for the ESD turnstile access control system. If you don’t know how to choose, please contact us through the online chat in the lower right corner or email, and we will provide you with the best solution and the best product and software system.

    1. According to the installation dimensions, what is the size, width, and depth of the ESD turnstile gate system installed at the entrance of the dust-free workshop? If both sides are against the wall, an 80mm gap needs to be left, that is, the total size minus 80mm.

    Taking the double channel as an example, the width of the double-channel installation of the tripod turnstile gate: gap 80 + tripod turnstile gate width 280 + channel width 550 + tripod turnstile gate width 280 + channel width 550=1740mm, Width of flap barrier turnstile gate double-channel installation: gap 80+ flap barrier turnstile gate width 300+ channel width 550+ flap barrier turnstile gate width 300+ channel width 550+ flap barrier turnstile gate width 300+ gap 80=2160mm, width of swing turnstile gate double-channel installation: gap 80+ swing turnstile gate width 280+ channel width 700+ swing turnstile gate width 280+ channel width 700 + swing turnstile gate width 280 + gap 80=2400mm

    2. According to the traffic speed, the total number of employees in the dust-free workshop needs to detect static electricity. If there are a large number of people, the speed of the tripod turnstile gate and the flap barrier turnstile is faster than that of the swing turnstile gate, depending on the on-site use for details.

    3. According to the appearance. The appearance of the flap barrier turnstile gate and swing turnstile gate should be better. This is a subjective factor, which should be selected according to your own needs

    4. According to the operating sound, after passing the electrostatic detection, when personnel passes the turnstile gate, the sound of the ESD flap barrier turnstile and ESD swing turnstile gate is smaller, and the sound of the ESD tripod turnstile is relatively larger.

    5. According to the way of opening the door, after passing the electrostatic detection, the ESD flap barrier turnstile and ESD swing turnstile will open the door automatically, and the ESD tripod turnstile needs to be pushed by hand.

    6. According to the voice prompt, there is no voice prompt for the ESD tripod turnstile. After the electrostatic test is passed, the ESD flap barrier turnstile and ESD swing turnstile will have a voice prompt, and the turnstile gate has its own voice function.

    7. According to the price. The price of flap barrier turnstile and swing turnstile gates is more expensive, and the tripod turnstile gate is relatively cheaper.

    ESD turnstile gate is an integral part of the ESD turnstile gate system. ESD turnstile gate, electrostatic tester, footplate, etc. form the ESD  turnstile gate system.

    ESD Tripod turnstile gate: the price is lower. Only one is needed for one channel. It needs to be pushed open by hand when it is used. There is a certain sound when the ESD tripod turnstile rotates.

    ESD swing turnstile gate: it can be used by single swing or double swing. The channel is relatively wide, and it can pass goods such as trolleys. ESD static electricity meets the requirements. The swing turnstile gate opens itself without pushing it.

    ESD flap barrier turnstile gate: it is usually used in opposite directions. It is more expensive. There is a voice prompt. ESD static electricity meets the requirements. The flap barrier turnstile gate opens itself.

    ESD speed gates: it is generally used in opposite directions. The chassis is relatively narrow, with a better appearance and higher price.

    To sum up, you can choose the ESD turnstile gate matching the ESD turnstile access control system according to your workshop needs.

    Card swiping or face recognition?

    ESD turnstile access control system on the market, including card swiping and face recognition, how to choose these two ways?

    Advantages of card swiping ESD turnstile gate system

    1. Swipe your card to respond quickly and save time. Face recognition should be slower

    2. The price is relatively low, and the price of face recognition is more expensive

    3. It is simpler to input personnel information, and photos are required for face recognition

    Disadvantages of card swiping ESD turnstile gate system

    It may be someone else’s card, which cannot be guaranteed to be my authorized operation behavior. Face recognition needs to recognize my face, which can effectively avoid the phenomenon of stealing and borrowing cards.

    11. Can be integrated with other types of access control products.

    Why install an ESD turnstile?

    In fact, each of us will generate static electricity more or less, but some people have large static electricity and some people have small static electricity. Most electronic factories involve electronic components. In daily life and work, the electrostatic voltage perceived by the normal human body will exceed 2-4kv. If the static electricity is carried by our contacts with IC components, almost all ICs will be damaged. The components of the electronic factory are very precise and small, so the electrostatic discharge will burn the circuit and cause the parts to be damaged and scrapped.

    In addition, static electricity will absorb dust, change the resistance of the line, seriously affect its service life, and more seriously, produce unqualified products, leading to serious consequences. If there are no corresponding protective and preventive measures in the production process, it will lead to a batch of waste products and bring irreparable losses to the factory.

    Static electricity can be as light as several tens of volts, and can reach hundreds of volts or even thousands of volts in serious cases. It is easy to break down the integrated circuit. Therefore, special attention should be paid to eliminating static electricity. The dust-free workshop should maintain the environmental humidity and use anti-static equipment, otherwise, it is easy to cause accidents, so the ESD turnstile access control system will be installed.

    Static electricity always exists. So how can we prevent it? Generally, some manufacturers will provide anti-static clothing, shoes, gloves, hats, and other products. However, the antistatic ability of this product will decrease over time. How can I know if my anti-static equipment is effective and can be replaced in time? Mairs ESD turnstile gate system can solve such problems. ESD turnstile gate system developed and produced by Mairs is an advanced product combining electrostatic test with an electronic access control system, computerized management software, and pedestrian access control turnstile gate.

    In many places with electrostatic protection areas (EPA), the testing of electrostatic shoes and electrostatic wristbands is carried out by traditional manual testing or supervision, which is difficult to implement and even prone to errors, difficult to win the trust of customers and management, and also forms a great potential loophole of personnel electrostatic grounding; Mairs ESD turnstile gate system puts forward direct and effective solutions to these shortcomings, so as to ensure that operators have made preparations for electrostatic grounding when entering EPA area;

    In addition, the flap barrier gate, swing turnstile gate, tripod turnstile gate, and other access control equipment are used as the control equipment of the pedestrian flow channel. It can provide an orderly and civilized way of passage for people entering and leaving, prevent illegal entry and exit, and quickly control the falling of poles in case of emergency to organize personnel evacuation. ESD turnstile gate system ensures that the static electricity carried by employees entering the workshop is within a safe range, and can reduce the loss of millions of your company due to static electricity every year. This also explains why electronic factories are equipped with ESD turnstile gate system.

    There is anti-static equipment in the anti-static workshop: an anti-static floor, ion fan, anti-static platform, etc. if the human body parameters are unqualified, such as static shoes and wrist straps, the static electricity accumulated by the human body will not be released into the anti-static environment built at a greater cost in the workshop; However, the real-time on-line detection system in the workshop is not very effective due to human avoidability. ESD turnstile gate system is mandatory. Employees must pass the ESD anti-static access control system test before entering the workshop, and the test data can be used as attendance data.

    ESD turnstile maintenance:

    The ESD turnstile gate includes a pedestrian turnstile gate, a human body comprehensive electrostatic tester, an electrostatic management host, a power supply, etc. In order to use ESD turnstile better and longer, we must understand how to better maintain the product. Of course, if you want to know more about the knowledge of turnstile gate maintenance, please check our other article: turnstile maintenance

    1. Check whether the power cord, network cable, and grounding wire of the pedestrian turnstile gate, electrostatic tester, and management host are normal every quarter.

    2. Check whether the power lights and network signal lights on the pedestrian turnstile gate control board and electrostatic management motherboard are normal.

    3. Check the connection of each interface of the turnstile mechanism to prevent the firmware from loosening.

    4. Add lubricating oil to the connecting parts and mechanism inside the turnstile gate every six months to maintain a good lubrication state.

    5. Check whether the card reader is loose and affects the sensitivity of card recognition.

    6. The static tester needs to be calibrated once a year (the networked anti-static gate can be calibrated automatically through the management host).

    7. The anti-static management software does not need maintenance, and only needs to be changed when adding functions.
