Delta Scientific DSC1400 Traffic Control Barrier
Delta Scientific, a provider of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems, has released its DSC1400 hydraulic-operated traffic control barrier, a surface-mounted, self-contained system that installs in only four hours on a flat concrete surface, according to the company.
In an emergency operating mode, the new traffic control barrier comes to a full guard position in 2 seconds, according to the company. Designed to withstand a K4 level impact, the DSC1400 will stop and destroy a truck weighing 15,000 pounds traveling 30 mph for an ASTM designation of M30, P1.
The company also states the system requires no excavation or trenching for hoses.
The DSC1400 runs on standard 120/240V power using a battery or standard outlet. Controls are by the use of an 8-inch flat-panel touch-screen color display. The panel provides plug-and-play operation when linked to the programmable logic controller in the motor drive unit.
An electromechanical wood arm signal gate alerts drivers of the barrier’s position. In addition, red/green eight-inch traffic lights also alert the driver. “Green” indicates that the barrier is fully down. In all other cases, the red light is on. To prevent the barrier from being accidentally raised under an authorized vehicle, barrier detector loops are deployed.
