MANY ROADS TO PERFORMANCE

Magnetic MHTM™ MicroDrive barriers are the latest evolution on the market, proven by the Red Dot 2012 award (one of the biggest and most important global design awards) and the German Design Award 2014.
The MHTM™ MicroDrive product range is the reference point in the automatic barrier industry: thanks to the revolutionary MHTM™ Microdrive drive system, the motor does not require maintenance and, at the same time, offers high performance operation, extremely quick opening and closing times and a high torque value. For example: the Magnetic.Access barrier has a maximum consumption of 25W which saves 75% more energy (or more) compared to competitive products.

MHTM™ MicroDrive is equipped with a control unit in compliance with the EN ISO 13849. The exclusive use of 24V technology for motor and control unit reduces the risk of crushing and ensures compliance with the European safety directives.
The barrier configuration is done via the control unit. An LCD display with 4 programming buttons and an intuitive graphic interface allows the installer to set the barrier parameters without any specific knowledge. The functional range can be extended via Plug & Play modules.
The MHTM™ MicroDrive technology product range is divided in:

  • ACCESS CONTROL
    (small parking lots, lower traffic areas, access roads, etc.)
  • Paid parking applications
    (multi-level car parks, car rental sites, airports, etc.)
  • Toll applications
    (toll roads, toll tunnels, toll bridges)
  • Traffic management
    (motorways)
  • OEM
