The new Alvarado Argus V60 is a full-performance, compact optical turnstile ideal for use where safety and security are needed and space is limited. This turnstile features a housing depth of only 9-1/2” (240mm) - making it the most compact optical turnstile available.
The Argus V60 utilizes a breakthrough sensor algorithm (patent pending) and vertical sensors for exceptional tailgating detection. For added security, the swinging barrier height can be raised to match the level of the V60 housing. Safety features include additional sensors to monitor the swing area of the barriers and free egress in an emergency or loss of power.
“Tailgating remains one of the most widespread security breaches affecting businesses today,” said Ron Virden, senior vice president, access automation solutions at dormakaba. “Optical turnstiles provide an effective solution to control access in corporate lobbies, college recreation centers, distribution centers, and more. The Argus V60 uses sensors in a more effective way to prevent tailgating in a footprint 72% smaller than any optical turnstile in the market today. It’s higher security in a smaller package.”
The Argus V60 features exclusive multi-array sensor and algorithm technology that offers two distinct advantages. A high resolution one-dimensional vertical sensor detects the signals in real time effectively providing a hi-res 2-D image from 1-D sensor information. These signals see gaps between two silhouettes and as silhouettes are being detected, the algorithm builds a model of the silhouette. This model uses the characteristic front and rear edge information of the silhouette as well as all the data points in between to classify it either as a person or a non-person (i.e., baggage). This improved tailgating detection reduces false alarms allowing security personnel to focus on other tasks.
