The MPT (Magnetic Pedestrian Turnstile) series of full height security turnstiles are designed to control pedestrians entering or exiting restricted areas where perimeter control is required. The turnstile consists of an outer 'U' bar section, an outer vertical bar section and a central rotating column incorporating a 3 x 120° offset 'U' bar configuration.
It has been designed as a modular system and can easily be assembled on site by hand, without heavy lifting devices. It can be installed directly onto concrete surfaces, for paved areas an optional foundation frame is available. As standard all sections are galvanised, RAL powder coating and stainless steel options also available upon request.
The control and drive mechanisms are housed within a sheet metal enclosure located above the central column. Additional space is available for installation of access control equipment.
MPT 132 motor driven
The maintenance-free MHTM® is the core of the drive system, providing advantages such as silent operation, obstacle detection and very quick opening and closing times. The system provides functions for a multitude of applications. In the event of power failure the centre column turns freely. An optional locking device to stop entry in one or both directions is available on request.
MPT 33 electromechanical
This version is rotated manually by the user. The locking mechanism contains a cam plate and two locking solenoids and is controlled by the MSC10 E-100 controller, specifically designed for this application. On receiving a pulsed input, the controller releases the relevant solenoid allowing the centre column to be rotated 120° before locking back into position. In the event of power failure 'locked' or 'free wheel' options are available in one or both directions.
This turnstile contains a simple but robust mechanical locking device with one passage direction always 'locked' and the opposite direction 'free'. Typical applications include exiting of recreational parks, swimming pools or similar venues.
