The TS200 is a line of single-lane tripod turnstiles that use very little electricity and operate quietly and smoothly. Stainless steel construction makes it highly durable. The tripod arms are often locked making it impossible to access the secured side. When the TS200 reader (which can read RFID and/ or fingerprints) positively recognizes a user’s valid access card or fingerprint the tripod arms unlock allowing passage to the secured side. In emergencies and power outages, the tripod arms collapse completely ensuring fast and unobstructed exit to safety for users.
