Turnstar to launch new products

February 2003 News

Turnstar Systems, a local manufacturer of turnstiles recently completed the contract for the supply of turnstiles at stadia countrywide for World Cup Cricket 2003. A total of 130 turnstiles were supplied. The company is now ready for new challenges and has some interesting products on the drawing board, some of which will be launched during 2003.

One of these products is an enhanced new controller for turnstiles. The controller is a small, self contained, microprocessor operated unit which has fault finding features inherent in the system. This means that diagnosis of problems causing malfunctions can easily be carried out by the technician without the need for special equipment. Diagnosis can even be carried out by the client. The controller is compact and can be mounted on the mechanism plate of the turnstile which means that more space is available in the turnstile for the installation of the controllers of the access control and time and attendance systems with which the turnstiles are often equipped. The mechanism and controller are situated under a lockable cover to prevent unauthorised tampering.

Over the years, constant improvement of the Turnstar turnstile mechanism has resulted in operation which is so quiet that users are not even aware of when the mechanism has unlocked to allow access. An enhancement associated with this advance is the provision of visual indicators in the turnstile signalling when the turnstile has in fact opened for access.

Also on the drawing board for launch this year is a motorised turnstile which will operate completely differently to the conventional ratchet and pawl mechanisms. Also in production is a special turnstile being made for a major turnstile manufacturer in Germany. Turnstar is confident that this will be the first of many turnstiles which will be purchased by them on an ongoing basis.
