Required tools and equipment
Check that you have all the required tools to complete the installation.
Site considerations
Consider the following checklist when determining the safety and suitability of the site:
 Check that all safety and local authority requirements will be met
 Check that the usage (duty cycle) of the site and the length of the boom pole required, are within
the barrier specifications
 Check that there is sufficient clearance on the side of the roadway to mount the barrier
 Check that a suitable foundation has been prepared for the barrier
 Check that the fitment of additional safety equipment has been catered for

Select operating mode
There are three Modes of Operation which can be selected, namely Simplex, Complex and PLC.
1. Simplex Mode
 Typical application would be the entrance to premises, which is controlled by a guard
 Raising and lowering of the boom pole is done via pushbutton or remote control connected to the
memory input (MI). The Autolower feature can be used to automatically lower the boom pole
after an adjustable Autolower Time
In Simplex Mode, the MI input will have the following characteristics:
 The input activates (the barrier responds) on the leading edge of the signal; in other words, the
moment the button is pressed
 From the fully lowered position, pressing the button once will cause the boom pole to raise.
A second button press will result in the boom reversing direction. In other words, the action is:
press to raise, press to lower and, if the barrier is in a semi-raised position, press to reverse - NB The barrier cannot be stopped in a midway position
 The NMI input operates exactly in the same way as MI when the SECTOR is in Simplex Mode, but
the input activates on the trailing edge of the signal, i.e. when the button is released
 In Simplex Mode you can use standard infrared safety beams or a loop detector to prevent the
barrier pole from being lowered onto a vehicle moving past the barrier. However, the closing loop is
always recommended in preference to beams as it operates more reliably when used with barriers
 In this Mode of Operation, it will act purely as a safety loop and will not influence the closing of the
barrier. However, the loop can be made to function as a closing loop if ILAC Mode is enabled
 ILAC Mode, which is comparable to PIRAC Mode as found on CENTURION gate motors, causes the
boom to Autolower as soon as the inductive loop is cleared, i.e. the vehicle moves off. This is a
desirable action in high-security applications and is an effective deterrent to tailgating
2. Complex Mode
 Typical application is any unmanned entrance, which makes use of any number of different access
control devices to raise the boom pole
 In Complex Mode, the boom pole lowers the moment the vehicle has driven over and cleared the
closing loop, which is mounted below the boom pole
 Access control devices, including proximity or card readers, keypads, remote controls, etc., are
connected to the memory input (MI). The memory input counts and stores each trigger impulse.
In this instance, more than in Simplex Mode, the MI input can be seen as a “memory input” since it
counts and stores the pulses received and the barrier will only close once the corresponding
number of activations and deactivations of the closing loop are received
 For example, say that someone presses the pushbutton three times to raise the boom, then it will
be necessary for a vehicle to clear the closing loop three times before the boom will lower. If no
closing signals are received, the boom will lower once the Autolower Time has expired. As with
Simplex Mode described above, the input activates the moment that the button is pressed
 CENTURION recommends that the FLUX OB onboard inductive loop detector is used as the closing
loop. Refer to page 9 for information on the FLUX OB onboard loop detector. This also acts as a
safety loop while the vehicle is present on the loop detector. As an alternative, but not
recommended is to use a set of infrared safety beams. It is recommended that two sets of safety
beams are used, which are spaced about 500 millimeters apart
 There is a non-memory input (NMI) to raise the boom pole when activated by a ticket
vending machine, pay parking system, etc. In Complex Mode, the boom will always lower the first
time that a closing signal is received, irrespective of how many trigger impulses were received on
the NMI input. For example, even if the button is pressed twice, the closing loop will only need to
be cleared once for the pole to lower. As with Simplex Mode, the input is activated once the button
is released
Page 2
 A Ticket Vend Interlock output is available via a potential-free contact to prevent the issuing of
tickets if the boom pole is raising or raised. These contacts can also be used as a potential-free
contact for courtesy or security lights that illuminate automatically when the barrier is operated
and remain illuminated for an adjustable period of time afterwards
2a. Free-exit (typically applicable to Complex Mode)
 It is possible to use the free-exit facility on the controller to automatically raise the barrier for
vehicles exiting the parking area or premises
 It is recommended to use an Inductive Loop Detector to activate the free-exit facility.
Alternatively, a set of infrared safety beams may be used, but this is not recommended
 The system can be configured for uni-directional traffic with the barrier dedicated as a free-exit
barrier. The closing loop will be used to lower the barrier the moment the vehicle has exited
 It can also be configured for bi-directional traffic with the same barrier providing access control for
vehicles entering and free-exit for vehicles exiting. The free-exit loop must be mounted close
enough to the closing loop so that the vehicle exiting is still present on this loop when it reaches
the closing loop. However, these must not be too close together, or magnetic interference will be
caused
3. PLC mode

In this Mode of Operation, separate inputs are controlled via pushbutton or directly
from a third-party programmable logic controller or PC to raise, lower and stop the
barrier
 There is one safety input for use with an Inductive Loop Detector or infrared safety
beams to prevent the boom pole from lowering onto a vehicle
If mounting inductive loops in the ground, please refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for
full installation details.
4. Spike Mode

This mode of operation will only be enabled if the controller is used as a CLAWS controller and will
never be used on a standalone SECTOR
 The purpose of Spike Mode is simply to switch controller functionality to drive CLAWS
Page 3
Cabling requirements
The cable requirements differ according to the mode that you have selected.
 All cables must be routed in conduit unless underground cable is being used
 For the detection of vehicles, CENTURION recommends installing Inductive Loop Detectors in
preference to infrared beams

1000mm and 2000mm). The exiting vehicle must not leave the free-exit loop before driving
onto the closing loop. The barrier will raise when the exiting vehicle drives onto the free-exit
loop. If FLUX OB is fitted, set the UNI-DIR FRX dipswitch to the OFF position

the FLUX OB onboard inductive loop detector
Number of cores and type of cable could vary depending on brand of access control system
being used
Orientation

Default orientation
Right hand orientation
It is always recommended to mount the
barrier with its access door facing the
oncoming traffic. This ensures that if a vehicle
accidentally hits the pole, the pole is knocked
away from the barrier housing, not back onto
the barrier housing, potentially damaging the
housing
Access

The default orientation is the operator on
the right hand side of the roadway, with
the pole pointing to the left - also
referred to as right hand orientation
Page 5
Changed orientation
Left hand orientation
It is possible to change to left hand
orientation allowing the barrier to be
mounted on the left hand side of the
roadway with the pole pointing to the
right. Please contact CENTURION for

Electrical setup
1. Always check that the circuit breaker in the electrical panel is in the OFF position, and that
all high voltage circuits (more than 42.4V) are completely isolated from the mains supply
before doing any work. The pole must be raised before isolating the system.
2. Ensure that all low voltage systems (less than 42.4V) are suitably protected from damage,
by disconnecting all sources of power such as chargers and batteries before doing any
work.
3. All electrical work must be carried out according to the requirements of all applicable local
electrical codes. (It is recommended that a licensed electrical contractor perform such
work).
Connect all wiring

4.
Connect all cables as required for the specific installation.
Ensure all interconnecting cables are securely in place.
Ensure single phase mains power is connected to the system.
Switch on the mains (isolator and circuit breaker), make sure that the battery is connected and
check that the polarity is correct.

FLUX OB

Some SECTOR traffic barrier models provide an onboard inductive vehicle loop detector known as
the FLUX OB, which can be used for the connection of a closing loop, and is to be found on the
SECTOR termination board.

Setup of the FLUX OB is performed by means of a series of dipswitches and designated LEDs
provide effective visual diagnostics.

Reset button
 Pressing the reset button enables the detector to be manually reset at any time. This results in the
detector retuning the sensing loop and becoming ready for vehicle detection. In addition, a 0.5S
output pulse will be generated
Run switch
 If the switch is ON, the detector is in Run Mode, and functions normally. If OFF, the detector halts,
and the output relay defaults to the detected state. This is useful when working on the SECTOR, as
it will prevent the boom from lowering
Frequency selection switch
 The frequency of the loop is determined by the inductance of the loop and the frequency switch
setting. If the frequency switch is ON, the frequency is reduced by approximately 25%. It may be
necessary to change the frequency to prevent cross-talk between adjacent loops
Uni-directional Free-exit switch

The switch is used to select between uni- and bi-directional traffic. If the switch is in the ON
position, the loop detector will generate a “raise” pulse whenever a vehicle is detected on the Freeexit loop. If, however, the switch is in the OFF position, a raise pulse will only be generated if a
detect signal is received from the Free-exit loop only, and never when a signal is received from the
Free-exit loop and the closing loop simultaneously (bi-directional traffic)
It is very important that the distance between the free-exit loop and the closing loop is less
than the length of one car
Automatic Sensitivity Boost (ASB) switch
 This option increases the sensitivity of the detector after initial detection of a vehicle. This is useful
to reliably detect vehicle and trailer combinations. Sensitivity returns to the selected value once the
vehicle has been undetected
Permanent presence switch

If this switch is set to the ON position, detection will be maintained as long as a vehicle remains on
the loop. The danger in using this setting is that any change in the environment (for example the
introduction of metal into the vicinity of the loop) will not automatically be tuned out without
pressing the reset button. If not selected, the loop will automatically tune out any permanent
detection after five minutes

With the loop connected, apply power to the SECTOR controller.
The green Power LED on the termination board will light up, and the green Detect LED will flash
until the loop has stabilised, and then turn off.
Once the loop has stabilised, only the green power LED should be on.
Bring a metal object towards the loop, and the Sense level LEDs will begin to light up, indicating
the detection range of the loop.
Once all five lights have lit up, the unit will enter detect, with the green detect LED lit.
Configure the desired operational settings using the dipswitches.
Test the FLUX OB using a metallic object, or a vehicle.
Separate loop detector module

If your SECTOR vehicle traffic barrier has not been fitted with an onboard inductive loop detector, it
is possible to install an external detector using one or both of the bases provided on the SECTOR
termination board. Bases are provided for both Free-exit and closing loop connections. Setup will be
as per the individual detector. For more information on the different configurations and Modes of
Operation as well as connecting closing and Free-exit loops, please refer to section 15, Electrical
Setup
12V loop detectors MUST be used.

Setting up additional features for the SECTOR barrier
The SECTOR navigation map that follows, provides the full menu of features that can be set up on the
system.
A brief explanation of each feature is provided in the section, ‘Controller features’.
When setting up additional features, all the steps that have to be followed are clearly provided via
the display.
It is only necessary to note the following:



To get into Setup Mode, press the oblong enter (
) button for two seconds and follow the
onscreen instructions
The buttons provided on the controller for navigating the system, are not marked because at each
step during the setup, the function given to each button is provided on the display
When not in Setup Mode, ie Normal Mode, the round ( ) button is used as a test button for
operating the system. The up/down buttons are not used unless the diagnostic screens have been
selected to appear in normal mode, in which case these buttons allow switching from one screen to
the next
 For each feature a Factory Default setting has been programmed into the controller. Referred
to as an Operating Standard or Profile, these defaults have been determined to suit the
requirements of the specific region where the installation is being carried out. It is only
necessary to change a feature where the default does not suit the installation. When selecting
any feature in the menu, details of the current setting stored in the controller are displayed
 When selecting any of the features on a new or defaulted controller, the LCD will display the
default value

Menu 2 - Safety (collision force)


Collision force
The collision force can be set independently for raising or lowering from minimum to maximum
in five discrete steps. A sixth step will disable collision sensing entirely, allowing maximum
force to be achieved. The motor will only shut down when its stall point is
reached. Stall level is
adjustable, refer to Torque Limit under Menu 5.

The maximum force setting should only be used if additional safety measures are
taken, for example, inductive loops, etc.

The response of the system to a collision will vary, depending on the Operating Standard
(eg. CE, UL325*) selected
*Collision force setting satisfies UL325, but the SECTOR barrier itself is not certified
Collision count
The number of sequential collisions that the system will allow, before shutting down the
controller, if the boom pole does not reach the lowered position. Counter resets each time the
boom pole reaches the lowered position. A valid trigger input will clear the shutdown
Alarm output
An alarm is activated if the multiple collision shutdown is triggered. This menu item configures
the different alarm outputs

ILAC (Inductive Loop Autoclose) Control
Causes the boom to Autolower as soon as the closing inductive loop is cleared, ie. the vehicle
moves off
FRX (Free-exit) Loop Direction
Allows a single access point with bi-directional traffic to make use of a free-exit loop. Due
consideration must be given to closing and free-exit loop positioning
Loop Alarms
While the boom pole is lowered, this feature allows the following alarms
 Presence Alarm - Activates an alarm if the closing loop has been continuously activated for
a predefined time. The alarm will remain activated while the closing loop is activated
 Presence Time - The time for which the closing loop must be continuously activated before
the alarm is activated
 Break-in Alarm - Activates an alarm if the closing loop is activated while the boom is
lowered. The alarm remains active while the closing loop is activated, and for a period of 30
seconds thereafter. This time is fixed
 Alarm Output - This menu item configures the different alarm outputs
Menu 7 - TVI (Ticket Vend Interlock) output
Configure TVI output for the specific purpose or as a Courtesy Light. If configured as a Courtesy
Light, light will switch on for a timed period every time the boom is activated.

Page 21
Menu 8 - ChronoGuard (Time-periods)(a world first)
ChronoGuard allows automatic activation or time-barring (prevented operation) of specific
controller inputs, and the time-barring of specified remote control buttons used together with
the onboard receiver. The Real Time Clock and Calendar will keep time for a minimum of one
hour without any power.
 Time-periods
A Time-period is defined by a start and end date and time. Up to 100 Time-periods can be
defined. A Time-period can be set as a once-off event, repeated on a weekly or annual
basis. The weekly repeat can be chosen to occur on every day of the week, weekdays only,
weekends only, or any specific day. The minimum duration of a Time-period is one minute.
Once-off Time-periods have the highest precedence, followed by annual and then weekly.

Auto-functions (Auto-activations)
Activate automatically any of the following inputs/outputs during a Time-period
Inputs
 Barrier Raise
 Barrier Lower
 Barrier Disable (Lck) - also referred to as Holiday Lockout
 Closing Loop (ILD)
Outputs
 Aux Out - this is a switching negative that can be used to drive an external relay for
operating any external device
 Aux IO - this is a switching negative that can be used to drive an external relay for
operating any external device

Time-barring
Time-barring of inputs is divided into physical inputs and inputs mapped to a remote
control button.
The following physical inputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating) during a
Time-period:
 Barrier Raise
 Barrier Lower
 Memory Input (MI)
 Non-memory Input (NMI)
 Barrier Disable (LCK)
The following physical outputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating) during a
Time- period:
 TVI (configured as a courtesy light relay)
The following remote control inputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating )
during a Time-period:
 Barrier Raise
 Barrier Lower
 Memory Input (MI)
 Non-memory Input (NMI)
 Barrier disable (LCK)

Time-barring of a CENTURION code-hopping transmitter is specified at the time of
coding the transmitter into the system. Once an RF input is defined as timebarred, any time-barred transmitter associated with that input will be time-barred
during the relevant Time-period. If a physical or RF input is currently time-barred,
any attempt to activate it will be acknowledged by a short beep of the onboard
buzzer. The input, however, will not activate
Exclusions
Exclusions are used to prevent scheduled Time-periods from occurring at specific times
(eg. public holidays). While time-barring can be used to achieve a similar end, exclusions
can also be used to exclude time-barring itself. Each exclusion consumes one Time-period.
Exclusions have the highest precedence, followed by time-barring and then Auto-functions

Diagnostics
Diagnostic LEDs
The SECTOR controller has a series of diagnostic LEDs which indicate the state of the inputs. Normally-open
inputs are indicated by a red LED, and normally-closed inputs by a green LED. An illuminated red LED
indicates that the signal is present (e.g. barrier raise pressed), while a non-illuminated green LED indicates
that the signal is absent (i.e. IRB broken)
ILD - green: On when the Inductive Loop Detector output
is not activated
Aux input - green: On when the Aux input is not activated
Lck/Stp - green: On when the Lck/Stp input is not activated
MI - red: On when the memory input signal is present
NMI - red: On when the non-memory input signal is present
Raise - red: On when a Barrier Raise signal is present
Lower - red: On when a Barrier Lower signal is present
Status- red: This LED indicates the status of the barrier
as per the table below

Power indicator LED
 This green LED is on when power is present, and the controller is functioning
Loop fault indicator LED
 This red LED is illuminated when there is a loop fault. If the loop is open circuit, the Fault LED will
flash continuously. If the loop is short circuit, it will remain on
Detection level indicator LEDs
 These five red LEDs provide a visual indication of the Detection Level. Once all five LEDs are on,
the detection threshold is almost reached. This is a very useful feature to determine if the loop is
going to perform reliably. With no vehicle in the vicinity, all the LEDs should be off
Detect indicator LED
 This green LED indicator is illuminated when there is a vehicle detected. This LED can also be used
to determine the loop frequency. Reset or power up, count the number of times the Detect LED
flashes. Multiply the number by 10KHz. For example: if the LED flashes eight times, then the loop
frequency is approximately 80KHz
