Modes of Operation Required
This section provides explanation into the mode of operation of the bollard cycle under
normal operation conditions and the access control equipment required.

Single Direction Specification
A single direction bollard system is defined as controlling vehicles in one direction. The
system will control the vehicles travelling through the system using a number of strategically positioned induction loops or wireless detector studs. The approaching vehicle will pull up to the traffic indicator column where it will by its position put the induction loops/studs into detect, a valid demand can be given and the bollards will lower – returning to the raised position once the vehicle is clear. Exit is not normally through the same bollards unless they are purposely held in the down position until the vehicle has left and the bollards can be safely raised.

Key Pad
Access is granted by entering a four digit code into the key pad which lowers the bollards (if a vehicle is present) turning the signal from Red to Green. Once the vehicle is registered on the safety loop/stud the Green light will change back to Red, discouraging following vehicles from tailgating. The bollards will automatically rise once the vehicle has cleared the safety loop ready for the next demand.
Anti-tailgating functions should be disabled to reduce risk of collision.
