StrongArm is HySecurity’s multi-use, hydraulic barrier arm gate
operator. It is designed for ultimate performance, reliability,
durability, and low maintenance. This operator is best suited for
sites requiring long and heavy arms (up to 36 feet), high reliability,
synchronization with other HySecurity operators, spanning airport
runways, or controlling traffi c across wide openings. StrongArm is
often found on corporate campuses, Department of Transportation
applications, government facility parking lots, and multi-family
residences. StrongArm easily synchronizes with every HySecurity
operator for highly eff ective anti-tailgating measures.
Industrial Grade Components
StrongArm solves the problems common to most barrier arm operators: high maintenance gearboxes, sprockets,
springs, complex mechanical parts, and commercial grade or less components. All of HySecurity’s electronic controls
and mechanical/hydraulic components meet higher quality industrial standards. Electronics are protected by extremely
high surge-suppression (in case of lightning strike) and off er the ultimate in end-user-programmable functionality
with an ultra-low failure rate. With few moving parts, StrongArm is designed and engineered for the longest, low
maintenance, high performance lifetime.
StrongArm is certifi ed with a 1,000,000 cycle test and is specifi ed to run up to 2,000 cycles per day. StrongArms last
for generations and require very little maintenance.
Hydraulics and Chassis
StrongArm operates using an electric motor driving a hydraulic pump and cylinder. It has few moving parts. Most
parts are bathed in hydraulic fl uid and require no periodic lubrication.
StrongArm’s chassis is uni-body constructed with heavy-duty, 10 gauge welded steel that yields a very rigid, secure
housing, which is protected with catalyzed primer and polyurethane enamel paint for a resilient, attractive fi nish. The
galvanized sheet metal cover is secured by a keyed, T-lock for extra security and vandal resistance.
StrongArms are available with a variety of barrier arm lengths, barrier arm types and cycle speeds. They can move up to 36 foot arms, come in side or yoke mounts, are manufactured with wood,
aluminum, fi berglass steel, or aluminum/fi berglass combinations. StrongArm cycle times range from 2
seconds to 8 seconds to open, depending on arm size.
Controls and Troubleshooting
StrongArm features the most advanced, fl exible and robust
controls in the industry. The Smart Touch Controller often
eliminates the high cost of add on, programmable logic controllers
(PLCs), providing on-board integration for even the most complex
perimeter security applications. Programmable options include
vehicle detector reverse or pause only, bi-directional traffic
(entrance and exit traffi c managed by one StrongArm), hold open
for two valid commands to open, master/slave, and timer-to-close.
Three user relays off er 26 programmable options, making it easy
to connect StrongArm to any external access control, obstruction
protection, or security device and create complex vehicle entry
validation, surveillance, and sequencing. Relays have normally-open
or normally-closed connections.
