Integrating With Other Systems

Integrating With Other Systems

Cartell easily integrates with any home automation, security or lighting system, offering to those systems the protection and convenience of professional vehicle detection. This is because our control units have floating, dry relay contacts.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

One (1) CT-2B control unit
One (1) CT-6 sensor probe

INSTRUCTIONS

You will need two things to have a successful installation:

The manual for your home automation, security or lighting panel
A resistor
(consult your manual for the correct size)

See Figure 1.
 CT-2B control unit  and CT-6 sensor probeHook the CT-2B to two zone inputs on your panel. If your system’s contacts are normally closed, use terminals 5 & 6 on the CT-2B. At your system’s panel, place a resistor between the terminals in parallel (see your H.A. manual for resistor size).

If your H.A. contacts are normally open, use terminals 6 & 7 on the CT-2B and place a resistor between the terminals in series (see your H.A. manual for resistor size).

Note: Use the power supply that came with the CT-2B to power it rather than relying on the home automation or security panel for power.

DriveGuard S.D.™ (SD-6 System)

DriveGuard S.D.™ (SD-6 System)

The DriveGuard S.D.™ system is recommended for driveways under 75 feet. It is an optional dual-probe sensing device used in the place of the single probe sensing device normally used with the DriveGuard Basic, Integrator and Ultra systems.

The S.D. dual-probe The S.D. dual-probe sensor, like our other sensor, is buried beside and near the end of the driveway, hidden and vandal-proof. It only detects moving steel, eliminating false alarms caused by animals or blowing objects. It is distinctive from our other sensor probe because it can be as close as 10 to 15 feet to outside cross traffic at the end of the driveway, making it suitable for short driveways.

Because of its sensitivity, our normal sensing device (called CT-6 sensor probe) must be placed at least 35 feet back from residential traffic (going 35 MPH or less) and 50 feet back from highway traffic (above 35 MPH).

The S.D. sensing device is composed of two probes connected by direct burial cable, buried 2.5 feet apart (see graphic below). A vehicle is not detected until it enters the driveway.

Use the DriveGuard S.D.™ with either the DriveGuard Basic™, DriveGuard Integrator™ or DriveGuard Ultra™ when vehicle detection is desired on driveways less than 75 feet.

It should be hooked up directly to the free exit terminals on the gate operator. Universal voltage (AC and DC) makes it compatible with any gate operator, solar or powered.

The fact that the GateMate™ is self-contained differentiates it from the Pioneer™ free exit system.

Pioneer™ (CT-3BG Free Exit System)

Pioneer™ (CT-3BG Free Exit System)

The Pioneer™ free exit system includes a sensor probe and an external output board with sensitivity and time adjustments. The board comes with our without enclosure and has been conformal coated for direct installation in a gate operator.

Its sensor is buriPioneer sensored beside the driveway, hidden and vandal-proof, and connected to the output board. There is no limit to the length of cable on the sensor probe (100′ to 3000′). Its sensor only detects moving steel, preventing the gate from being tripped open by animals or blowing objects.

It accepts universal voltage (AC and DC), allowing it to be used with any gate operator, solar or powered.

American made and supported.

Pioneer™ Components

Two components make up the Pioneer™ free exit system:

1. CT-3BG circuit board

2. CT-6 sensor probe

Component description:

• CT-3BG circuit board

The CT-3BG circuit board is the same as in the CT-2B control unit. The difference is that the CT-3BG (the “G” represents “Gate”) is conformal coated with acrylic for direct installation in an automatic gate operator. It comes with or without the enclosure. The board is less than 4 inches square.

The CT-3BG is connected to the free exit terminals on the gate operator. Universal voltage (AC and DC) make it compatible with any gate operator, solar or powered.

Field adjustments include relay time and sensor probe sensitivity. The adjustments, multi-component aspect, and variety of sensor probe cable lengths differentiate it from the GateMate™ free exit system.

CT-6 • CT-6 sensor probe

Based on magnetometer technology, the CT-6 detects movement in the earth’s magnetic field caused by moving steel. It will not detect animals, people or blowing objects. Wind and weather do not affect it. This makes it virtually false-alarm proof. It does not require power.

The CT-6 sensor probe should be buried 6-10 inches underground, at least 100 feet from the automatic gate operator (toward the house), beside and parallel to the driveway. It covers a 12′ wide driveway from the side. It has direct burial cable attached, making conduit unnecessary. The cable is buried 3-6 inches underground, up to the gate operator and connected to the CT-3BG circuit board.

The CT-6 comes with a custom length of direct burial cable attached in increments of 50′ from 100′ to 500′; comes in increments of 100′ from 500′ to 3000′. The cable is polyurethane coated, making repair-splicing in the field possible.
