Traffic boom BL229

Increase the security of your facilities with the help of traffic barriers. Ensure correct weighing is carried out before the vehicle is allowed to drive off the scale or that identification gives the right to enter the facility.

Automatic Systems from Belgium is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of equipment for regulating vehicle and passenger traffic. A well-proven construction with high quality.

BL229 is a robust traffic boom designed to fit in most traffic solutions where the customer sees a need for increased safety. As standard, we deliver with a 4.5 meter boom arm, which corresponds to the vast majority of applications. A frequency converter provides a smooth, vibration-free and fast movement.

Technical specification
  • Boom housing in fully welded 2 mm thick sheet steel that has been pre-treated, primed and finished with double layer 2-component polyurethane paint, total thickness 80-130 μm. Standard color FLINTAB red.

The boom can handle many different impulses, common ways of activation are:

  • via scale terminal/weighing
  • passenger terminal or similar
  • remote control
  • magnetic loops in the ground
  • laser sensor
  • key lock/switch directly on the boom house or indoors
  • GSM solution/ethernet
  • Possibilities for control via Viktoria2 (coming release)

At the barrier, a sensor is also needed that detects that the vehicle has passed, eg magnetic loop or laser.

The logic controls all the activities of the boom: functions, movements, additions, inputs and outputs, and so on. The logic stores and displays the most recent events and even if something prevented the movements.
