2. General description
The SECTOR barrier has been designed to safely and cost-effectively apply high-duty
vehicular access control to roadways between 3m and 6m wide. The battery backed up
system ensures continued operation in the event of a power failure. The failsafe position
and collision detection system has been designed and tested to set the standard in safety
of operation and to provide an unparalleled level of reliability and durability in operation.
The pole travel limits are managed by a sealed opto-electronic system that ensures
precise position and trajectory control. Accurate and reliable collision detection ensures
safe operation even under trying conditions. A precision die-cast gearbox and novel
speed and trajectory control algorithm ensures smooth and rapid operation even after
many years of service. The splined output coupler eliminates pole droop over time. The
SECTOR control card has been designed to be easy and intuitive to use with helpful
instructions on the status of the operation during and after installation.
Some of the advanced features offered by the SECTOR controller are:
! Interactive graphical user interface via a backlit LCD display to facilitate and simplify
the installation process
!
Fully automated single button limit setup
!
Independent Memory Input, Non-Memory Input, Barrier Raise and Barrier Lower Inputs
!
Advanced closed-loop speed control to maintain safe and reliable operation in windy
conditions
!
Independent control of Opening and Closing speeds
!
Selectable and adjustable Autolower
!
Selectable mains failure raise
!
Smooth, adjustable start/stop (ramp-up and ramp-down)
!
Multiple Operating Profiles
!
Onboard CENTURION receiver with full channel mapping capability (limited to 500
buttons)
!
A status LED output to indicate the barrier status remotely
!
Advanced and proven lightning protection
Lightning Protection
The SECTOR electronic controller utilises the same proven surge protection philosophy
that is used in all CENTURION products. While this does not guarantee that the unit will
not be damaged in the event of a lightning strike or power surge, it greatly reduces the
likelihood of such damage occurring. The earth return for the surge protection is provided
via the mains power supply earth.
In order to ensure that the surge protection is effective, it is essential that the
unit is properly earthed.

!
Consider the following checklist when determining the safety and suitability of the site:
! Check that all 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
! Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation

8. Loop detectors and associated functionality
FLUX OB onboard vehicle loop detector
Description
Certain SECTOR models provide an onboard single-channel inductive loop detector
known as the FLUX OB, eliminating the need for a separate detector. This highly sensitive
loop detector can be used for the connection of closing loops and does not require
additional relays and bases to be fitted, saving time and money.
A number of diagnostic LEDs are present on the termination board to allow for quick and
reliable loop installation, and a series of selectable dipswitches enables the individual
user to change settings as best suits the installation. In addition, the inclusion of
adjustable frequency settings provides excellent immunity to outside interference, and
adaptive self-tuning means unparalleled and uncompromising reliability.

FLUX OB features
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 crosstalk between adjacent loops
Page 13
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 Free-exit 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

Power indicator LED
! This red 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
Page 14
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 this number by 10KHz. For example: if the LED
flashes eight times, then the loop frequency is approximately 80KHz
Commissioning the FLUX OB
1. With the loop connected, apply power to the SECTOR controller.
2. 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.
3. Once the loop has stabilised, only the green power LED should be on.
4. Bring a metal object towards the loop, and the Sense level LEDs will begin to light
up, indicating the detection range of the loop.
5. Once all five lights have lit up, the unit will enter detect, with the green detect
LED lit.
6. Configure the desired operational settings using the dipswitches.
7. Test the FLUX OB using a metallic object, or a vehicle.

then the inductance is too small
and more turns of wire should be
added to the loop
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.
Tips for successful loop installation
! The loop and feeder should be constructed from XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene)
insulated multi-stranded copper wire with a minimum cross-sectional area of 1.5mm².
The feeder should be twisted at a rate of at least 20 turns per metre to improve
reliability (Remember that twisting the feeder will shorten its length, so ensure a long
enough feeder wire is used). Feeders which may pick up electrical noise should use
screened cable, with the screen earthed at the detector
!
Joints in the wire are not recommended, but where required must be soldered and
made waterproof
!
Faulty joints will lead to unreliable operation
!
The loop should be either square or rectangular in shape with a minimum distance of
1m between opposite sides
!
Two to six turns of wire are typically used in the loop – See table below:

>20
!
When two loops are laid in close proximity to each other, it is recommended that
different numbers of turns are used in each loop to prevent cross-talk
!
Cross-talk describes the interference between two adjacent loops, and can cause
reliability issues
!
To minimise cross-talk, adjacent loops should be at least two metres apart, and
different frequency settings
!
The most reliable form of loop is preformed and enclosed in conduit. This prevents
water ingress, and minimises the effects of vibration
!
Where a pre-formed loop is not practical, slots should be cut into the road using a
masonry cutting tool. A 45° cut should be made across the corners to prevent damage
to the wire on the corners. The slot should be about 4mm wide and 30mm to 50mm
deep. Remember to extend the slot from one of the corners to the roadside to
accommodate the feeder. After the loop and feeder wires have been placed in the slot,
the slot must be filled with an epoxy compound or bitumen filler
Page 16
9. Select Operating Mode
There are four Modes of Operation which can be selected, namely Simplex, Complex,
PLC and Spike
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 semiraised 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 auto-lower 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). In this instance, more than in Simplex
Mode, the MI input can be seen as a “memory input” since it counts and stores the p
ulses 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.
Page 17
If no closing signals are received, the boom will lower once the auto-lower time has
expired. As with Simplex Mode described above, the input activates the moment that
the button is pressed.
!
CENTURION recommends that an inductive loop detector, such as the one provided
onboard, is used as the closing loop. 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 millimetres 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.
!
A ticket vend interlock 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
4. Spike mode
!
The Mode of Operation will only be enabled if the controller is used as a CLAWS
controller and will never be used on a stand alone SECTOR.
!
The purpose of Spike Mode is simply to switch controller functionality to drive CLAWS
Page 18
10. 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

For bi-directional traffic, x must be less than the length of an average motor
vehicle (between 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

11. 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.

A Left Hand barrier is defined as a unit installed on the left hand side of the road from
which the vehicle approaches. The door always faces oncoming traffic.

Balancing the Spring
1.
Should the spring not be properly
balanced, the onboard buzzer will alert the
user to this fault condition.
2.
A handy diagnostic screen, complete with
graphic representation, can be found by
simply pressing the down arrow once while
in normal operating mode.
3.
This screen will show the user exactly how
many turns of the tensioning nut are
needed to obtain optimum balancing of the
counterbalance spring and in which
direction.
4.
The barrier must be operated at least three
times before the new adjustments will be
registered by the controller.
5.
It is much easier to perform the tensioning
operation while the boom pole is in the
vertical (raised) position, as the spring will
be under significantly less tension.
On the 6m and 4.5m SECTOR
variants, a 24mm socket must be
used on the tensioning nut, and a
19mm socket must be used for
the 3m SECTOR

14. 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 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
1.
2.
3.
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.

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 (
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 a new or defaulted controller, the LCD will display the default on the display
Page 39
) button for two seconds and
!
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

22. SECTOR controller features
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 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
!
LCK as ESTOP
Allows the Lck (Holiday Lockout) input to be configured as an emergency stop
input
!
External boom status
The gate status indication can be used to drive an external device such as a
traffic light or Pillar Light by either producing a potential across the selected
indicator or switching a dry contact.
The following outputs can be configured as external indicators:
!
Pillar/Courtesy Light contact (potential-free normally-open contact, fuse
protected – 5A)
!
Safety beam common (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A,
not fuse protected)
!
Status LED output (operate up to three LEDs in parallel or interface with
multi-LED driver card, CP78)
!
Aux. I/O (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A, not fuse
protected)
The conditions under which the selected output must be active can be
configured according to the status of the gate, and more than one status can
be selected simultaneously:
!
Open indication
Page 44
!
Partly open indication Opening indication
!
Closing indication
!
Partly closed indication
!
Closed indication
!
Pedestrian indication
!
Unknown indication
An example of where the External Gate Status Indication will typically be used
is where two D-Series operators have been connected for interlocking
purposes, i.e. one cannot be operated while the other one is in motion. In
such a case, the XIO of one operator will be connected to LCK of the other, XIO
set as the desired indication, and the indication set to be ON only for a CLOSED
status. Since LCK is a normally-closed circuit, when Operator 1 is triggered it
will break the circuit and invoke Holiday Lockout in Operator 2; when Operator
1 then reaches the closed position again (since XIO has been configured to be
active for CLOSED only), the circuit will be completed and Operator 2 will be
allowed to operate.
Menu 3 - Autolower
!
Autolower Status
If enabled, the boom pole will automatically lower after a preset Autolower
time
!
Autolower Time
The Autolower time can be set anywhere from 1 to 240 seconds (four minutes)
!
Autolower Override
Temporarily turn off Autolower. Activate and maintain the memory input for
longer than the Autolower Override Time. Activate Memory input to clear the
override.
!
Autolower Advanced Options
Set the conditions under which the boom pole will automatically lower. More than
one condition can be selected:
!
Autolower on Raised - automatically lower the boom if boom pole is fully
raised
!
Autolower on Partly Raised - automatically lower the boom pole if it has
been stopped partially raised
!
Autolower on Partly Lowered - automatically lower the boom pole if it has
been stopped partially lowered

!
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
!

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 Timeperiods 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 Timeperiod
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 eternal device
! Aux IO - this is a switching negative that can be used to drive an external
relay for operating any eternal 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)
Page 48
Time-barring of a CENTURION NOVA code-hopping transmitter is
specified at the time of coding the transmitter into the system. Once
an RF input is defined as time-barred, 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

Menu 10: Remote controls
Learn up to 500 CENTURION NOVA remote control transmitter buttons. Using one
button as a shift button, each transmitter can operate up to six functions. Each
transmitter learned into the system is assigned a unique transmitter ID. When
adding transmitters, it is recommended that a record be kept of the ID number
allocated by the system to each respective transmitter and the person to whom
the transmitter is given. This is necessary should selective deletion be required at
a later stage.
&
Press button of valid transmitter
If the remote controls menu has been locked as discussed later, only by
pressing a button of a transmitter learned into the system, can this remote
controls menu be accessed
Page 49
!
!
!
It is possible to artificially increase the number of buttons of a multibutton transmitter by using a two button combination
One of the buttons is used as a shift button to allow the other
buttons to be used again in combination with this button. In other
words the user will press and hold the shift button, before pressing
one of the other buttons to create a new button
The shift button cannot be used as a button on its own, it must always
be used in combination with the other buttons
Benefits of the shift button system:
Use of the shift button system allows a three button transmitter to
gain an extra button and operate four functions and likewise a four
button transmitter gains two extra buttons and can operate six
functions
!
!
Another benefit of using the shift button system is that it requires
both hands to operate the two button combination. This prevents
the user from accidentally enabling sensitive functions such as Holiday
Lockout on the controller
!
Each transmitter learned into the system is assigned a unique
transmitter ID.
!
Add Remote
Any button can be set to control the memory, non-memory, raise boom pole,
lower boom pole and Holiday Lockout inputs
!
Delete Remote
Transmitters can be deleted at any stage according to one of the following:
!
Delete Remote by ID – Where a record of the unique ID has been kept,
delete transmitter according to this
!
Delete Remote Button – Clear operation of a button on a particular
transmitter
!
Delete Remote by Button - Delete a transmitter that is present
!
Delete-Not-Present - Allows a Time-period to be set in hours. Any remotes
which have not been used in the Time-period will be deleted
!
Delete All Remotes – Clear the entire remote memory
!
Edit Remote Button
Move the function from one button to another. The transmitter must be
present
!
Autolearn
!
Allows a Time-period to be set, during which any specific button will be
learned to a specific function when it is pressed. The function will also be
activated when the button is pressed. After the Time-period has expired,
Autolearn is disabled, and no further buttons will be learned.
!
Tx Menu Locked

23. 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

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

Aux IO
The Aux IO terminal provides an open collector output which can be used
for alarm or auto function purposes. If the collision alarm output or the
Presence Alarm output has been configured to Aux IO, then the negative
of the alarm device must be connected to this terminal. The positive of the
alarm device must be connected to the Aux 12V Out terminal. Similarly, if
Aux IO is auto-activated via a ChronoGuard auto-activation Time-period,
the device being switched (typically a 12V relay) must be powered from
the Aux 12V Out terminal, and have its negative switched by Aux IO. If
the Aux IO has not been selected as either an alarm indicator output or
auto-activated output, the Aux IO terminal will behave as a Com
termination point. All trigger signals, etc., have their return path to one of
the Com terminals

20mA) to a LED which can be used to indicate the boom status remotely. If
more than three LEDs are required it is necessary to fit the CP78 multi-LED
driver card
Aux
The lowering input. (A normally-open potential-free input). Momentarily
connecting this input to Com will cause the boom pole to immediately lower
regardless of which position it is in, unless it is already fully lowered
FRX
The raising input. (A normally-open potential-free input). Momentarily
connecting this input to Com will cause the boom pole to immediately raise
regardless of which position it is in, unless it is already fully raised
Com
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc.; have their return
path to one of the Com terminals
NMI
The non-memory input. (A normally-open potential-free input). This input is
used to obtain a trigger signal. Momentarily connecting the input to Com
will cause the boom pole to raise, stop or lower depending on the operating
mode selected. Each trigger impulse received will cause the barrier to react
accordingly
Page 56
MI
The memory input. (A normally-open potential-free input). The memory
input counts and stores each trigger impulse. The boom pole will stay
raised until the same number of closing signals is applied to the closing
input, such as the closing loop. This input is typically used in conjunction
with the Complex (CMX) Mode of Operation
LCK/STP
Holiday Lockout or boom stop input. (A normally-closed potential-free
input). For as long as a connection between this input and Com is
maintained the controller will behave normally, but when the connection
to Com is broken all inputs are inhibited
ILP
The inductive loop detector input. (A normally-closed potential-free
input). As long as a connection between this input and Com is maintained
the controller will behave normally. When this connection is broken, i.e. a
vehicle drives onto the inductive ground loop, it will prevent the barrier
from lowering if it is stationary, and will stop and raise the barrier if it is
lowering
Aux 12V Out Auxiliary power connection. Provides +12V DC supply for auxiliary
equipment such as a radio receiver, photo cells, etc. It is electronically
limited to 300mA
TVI/TVI
Ticket Vending Interlock. These two terminals provide a normally-open
potential-free contact which is generally used to introduce an electronic
“lock” to ticket vending devices, meaning that tickets cannot be dispensed
while the boom pole is raised or raising. Alternatively, the terminals can
be used to connect a courtesy or security light which will illuminate
whenever the barrier is operated Com will cause the boom pole to raise,
stop or lower depending on the operating mode selected. Each trigger
impulse received will cause the barrier to react accordingly

Replace the 30A ATO fuse
Refer to the battery charge level on
the diagnostic screen – replace if
necessary. See Procedure A.
Ensure that there are no autoactivations set for these inputs that
are still in effect. Refer to the matrix
in the diagnostic screen showing
auto-activations
The diagnostic screen will display
how many turns is necessary to
achieve optimum spring tension and
in which direction the nut must be
turned. When the ideal spring
tension is reached, a zero will be
displayed
Check physical condition of battery
and terminals; check battery charge
state and charging voltage on
diagnostic screen. See procedure A.
Ensure that nothing is hindering the
trajectory of the boom pole
Replace faulty DOSS or reconnect
unplugged DOSS connections
Tighten drive-arm or contact local
CENTURION agent
Contact local CENTURION agent to
service gearbox
Adjust collision sensitivity to a
MEDIUM or LOW setting
Check for physical obstructions
Depending on the application, set
the controller to “Simplex” mode
Procedure A - Low battery voltage condition
Status light flashes three times – LCD indicates battery low
If the battery voltage is less than 13.5V DC, the barrier will not operate at all. For any
other voltage, the battery could still be the cause of the problem. Is the battery being
properly charged?

Check the “Mains Present” icon on the main diagnostic screen or switch to the battery
charger diagnostic screen and check the charging voltage – right hand voltage. This
should indicate XV
Check that the mains power is turned on (check 220-240V AC on the mains connector)
Check that the red LED on the side of the charger is lit
Check the charger’s supply fuse
Check that the white battery charger connector is making proper contact
Check the condition of the battery leads, terminals and connectors. Look for and correct
all loose connections and signs of corrosion
The battery might be discharged. Measure the battery voltage with the charger
connected, if the voltage is below 13.5V then the battery is discharged. The number of
raising cycles per hour may be excessive, thus discharging the battery
The charger may be faulty. Disconnect the battery and measure the voltage on the
battery leads. It must be between 13.6V and 13.8V. If not, replace the charger
The battery might be old, and might have to be replaced. If in doubt test as follows:
Check that the battery is charged, by ensuring that the battery voltage is above 13.5V
with the charger connected. (If the battery is in a good condition it would probably pass
the test without being fully charged)
! Disconnect the charger from the battery
! Remove the DC Motor leads from the DC Controller
! Apply the DC motor leads directly to the battery, while measuring the battery voltage
! If the problem is not solved replace the DOSS sensor and main controller
Procedure B - False collision detection
Status light flashes four times to indicate that number of collisions have exceeded the
Collision Counter feature value. LCD screen indicates “Max Collisions”
With the operator in manual mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
That the boom pole can be easily raised or lowered by hand and does not stick or jam at
any stage
! That the spring tension is correct. A handy diagnostic screen, complete with graphic
representation, can be found by scrolling upwards. This will tell you exactly how many
turns of the spring tensioner are needed and in which direction, be it clockwise or
counter-clockwise
! That there is not excessive play on the gearbox
! That the primary drive-arm is not loose on the output shaft
! Check the DC motor wires for any loose connections
! Ensure that the DOSS sensor wire harness is securely plugged into the controller
! Ensure that the DOSS sensor is securely clipped into the housing
! If the problem is not solved, replace the DOSS sensor and main controller

27. Ancillary equipment
A number of additional devices are available which can be interfaced with the SECTOR traffic
barrier to increase security or otherwise enhance the installation.
SECTOR breakaway coupling
The SECTOR breakaway coupling is a handy
boom coupling that minimises damage to the
boom pole by causing it to swing away to the
side if struck by a vehicle. The breakaway
coupler incorporates a micro-switch which is
connected to the emergency stop input,
meaning that the SECTOR will be barred from
operating the moment that the micro-switch is
unclipped. This significantly reduces the chance
of further damage to the barrier.
FIGURE 41. BREAKAWAY COUPLING
SECTOR jack-knife assembly
Some installations may require – due to a
particularly low ceiling or similar hindrance
which has diminished overhead space as a
consequence – that the boom pole bend at an
angle to allow for sufficient clearance when
raising. A jack-knife assembly can be fitted to
an existing boom pole which will allow the
boom bole to bend at an angle by means of a
metallic “knuckle”, and to become level again
when in the lowered position.
FIGURE 42. JACK-NIFE ASSEMBLY
TRAPEX
TRAPEX is a barrier fence that can be fitted to
the SECTOR barrier boom pole (3m and 4.5m
poles only) to facilitate pedestrian access
control. The fence consists of a series of
vertical poles which not only cover the area
beneath the boom pole but also extends past
the boom pole, meaning that the boom cannot
be skirted. A link arm assembly prevents the
boom from being pushed aside.
FIGURE 43. TRAPEX
Page 60
CLAWS
CLAWS are modular barrier spikes designed to
significantly enhance the security of an entry or
exit. The CLAWS can be interfaced with the
SECTOR traffic barrier in a direct drive
configuration via the barrier’s external status
output, i.e. the spikes will raise when the boom
pole lowers etc. An independent drive
configuration is also available, meaning that the
CLAWS will operate independently from the coinstalled SECTOR barrier. Also note that flush
and surface mount variants of CLAWS are
available.
CLAWS are highly effective in cases where
optimum security and access control are
required.
FIGURE 44. SURFACE AND
FLUSH 3MOUNT CLAWS
FLUX 11
In addition to the onboard inductive vehicle
loop detector that is supplied with the SECTOR
controller, a stand-alone 11 pin detector can
also be installed to add an extra level of safety
to any installation. The FLUX 11 is a singlechannel, stand-alone highly sensitive inductive
loop detector designed for vehicle access
applications. The unit can be integrated into an
existing SECTOR installation by plugging it
into one of the 11 pin connectors, and used in
conjunction with either a closing (safety) loop
or a free-exit loop.
FIGURE 45. FLUX 11
Midi Traffic Light
The CENTURION Midi Traffic Light enables you
to visually indicate when it is safe for a vehicle
to proceed into or out of an access controlled
area, allowing for an added element of safety
and control

it. Make sure that the user fully understands the following safety requirements before
finally handing over the site.
The following needs to be understood by the user:
How to operate the manual release mechanism. (Show them how by
demonstration)
! How the safety loops and all other safety features work. (Show them how by
demonstration)
! All the features and benefits of the operator, i.e. Safety loops, etc.
! All the safety considerations associated with operating an automated barrier.
The user should be able to pass this knowledge on to all other users of the
automated system and must be made aware of this
responsibility.
!
Do not activate the barrier unless you can see it and can
determine that its area of travel is clear of people, pets, or
other obstructions
! NO ONE MAY GO UNDER A MOVING BARRIER. Always keep
people and objects away from the barrier
NEVER LET CHILDREN OPERATE OR PLAY WITH THE BARRIER
CONTROLS, and do not allow children or pets near the barrier area
Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas
where fingers or hands could be pinched
Secure all easily accessed barrier operator controls in order to
