What is turnstile gate with card reader?

Turnstile gate with card reader is a type of pedestrian turnstile gate that integrates with all kinds of card readers. The turnstile gate with card reader is a very important access control management device. It can control the opening and closing of the pedestrian turnstile gate by reading the user’s card swiping information, ensuring the safety of personnel and property.

Usually, there is enough space inside the turnstile gate to install a card reader, but because there are various card readers available on the market, the size of the card reader used by each customer is also different. Therefore, when choosing a turnstile gate, it is best to confirm in advance that the size of the card reader can be perfectly installed inside the turnstile gate to avoid the situation where there is no space to install a card reader inside the turnstile gate after purchasing it.

Through the combination of this special card reader and turnstile gate, the access control management function is realized. It is a very common and practical access control identification management method. It can effectively reduce the mistakes and labor costs of manual access control management. Increase the security of the channel. It is widely used in access control security management.

To understand the turnstile gate with card reader, we must first understand the card reader. Please see the following picture. How does this special card reader integrate with the turnstile gate to realize access control management?

The card reader installed on the turnstile gate can use embedded and non-embedded two installation methods, customers can choose according to their own needs, in general, we choose an embedded card reader.

Introduction of card reader:

QR code/IC card reader for turnstile gate is a kind of access control card reader that focuses on the embedded installation of the turnstile gate. The device supports small program dynamic QR code identification, supports visitors’ QR code reservation and sharing operation according to time, and can read ID / IC card serial number and IC card sector data at the same time. The device can communicate with RS485. It is widely used in residential areas, security turnstile gates, access control, elevator control, and other scenes.

Working principle of card reader:

The access control controller and multi-functional access control controller are connected with the management center through Ethernet, QR code + IC card reader communicates with the access control controller through Weigen or RS232, Personnel in and out through the QR code small program production with the authority of QR code scanning door, and can also apply for QR code scanning door with the help of third-party system integration.

Working principle of turnstile gate with card reader:

The card reader is used to read the smart card information (card number), convert it into an electrical signal, and send it to the access control controller. Based on the received card number, the controller judges whether the cardholder is authorized to enter the turnstile gate during this time period, and completes the tasks of unlocking and maintaining locking based on the results of the judgment.

The working principle of the turnstile gate with card reader:

1. Swipe card recognition

When a user swipes a card, the card reader will read out the information on the card and then transmit the information to the controller for recognition.

2. Determine identity

The controller will compare the read information with the pre-saved information to determine whether the identity of the card-swiping user is correct.

3. Control the turnstile gate

If the controller recognizes the correct user identity, the turnstile gate will open and the user can pass through smoothly. If the identity is incorrect, the turnstile gate will not open, ensuring the safety of the entrance and exit.

Of course, different turnstile gate systems have different functions and principles, so you must choose according to your actual situation.

The above mainly analyzes the working principle of the turnstile gate with card reader. So what is the characteristic of the swing turnstile gate with card reader in the pedestrian access control system?

turnstile gate with card reader

In cases of abnormal use:

1. When the door is closed, the reverse intruder enters the door body after the authorized door signal is issued. Before passing through a safe photoelectric detection band, if the reverse detection band detects someone entering, as long as the person does not leave, the buzzer will alert all the time.

2. When the door opens, the door closes immediately if an unauthorized pedestrian enters the door detection area when the door is opened. As long as a protective detection band detects the presence of someone, the “aging” function does not calculate the time at this time. The door returned to normal when the person left the second detection area.

3. When the pedestrian leaves, the pedestrian passes through the second safety detection area. Before the door returns to the basic state, the second safety detection area detects the entry without the legal opening signal, and the alarm system alerts. But as long as the protection zone still detects someone, the door won’t close.

4. Close tail detects a pedestrian from a detector to the last detector he leaves a safety detection band, with a time of gap of about 0.25 seconds. After the pedestrian leaves a safety detection band, a detection area detects a pedestrian (trailing), the alarm is ringing, and the door is still open.

Normal trailing pedestrians leave the protective detection area, an unauthorized person is detected in a safety detection area, the door is immediately closed, and the alarm is ringing.
