The Model 2795-2 Dual STROBESWITCH™ is a compact low cost dual detector system which detects a special strobe light signal and opens access gates to allow quick entrance. The detector is activated by the strobe emitters used by most fire department emergency vehicles to control traffic signals en route to a fire. The dual 1790–1014 STROBESWITCH™ detectors interface with the TOMAR or GTT OPTICOM® optical signal emitters. Each detector features a 1/2” female pipe hub mounting base.
HOW IT WORKS:
The emergency vehicle uses a special strobe light to transmit a continuously flashing optical signal. The TOMAR 2795-2 STROBESWITCH™ receives this signal, and if the signal format is correct, activates a relay. The relay contacts may be used to control security gates, fire department garage doors, and other devices. Signaling is optical by line of sight, and the 2795-2 can operate indoors or outdoors, in bright sunlight, or in any weather. The unit is not susceptible to radio frequency interference, and uses digital frequency discrimination to reject unwanted signals, such as flashlights, emergency vehicle lighting systems, flashing signs, etc.
