The B680H is known for its safe performance and reliability since it offers several features that make it one of the best Boom Gates with a variety of uses. With its hybrid heart and everlasting springs, it’s more than capable of performing 2,000,000 cycles of continuous use. It can also raise an 8m beams in less than 6 seconds, thanks to its reverse on contact feature.
Another great feature of B68OH is its internal load-bearing structure and it can easily be maintained due to its removable housing. This type of design gives total flexibility since the housing can easily be replaced if necessary.
It also boasts its hybrid technology, which is the core of the barrier and combined with a 24v Hydraulic DC Motor, it allows a continuous duty – making it the most suitable boom gate for high traffic applications like tollways and car parks. In fact, you can never go wrong with the B680H because it consists of top-quality components, so you are assured that it’s a very durable and reliable barrier.
The Genius Rainbow line of boom gates are also designed for high traffic areas like car parks and tollways, but they are more compact, with main features focused on ergonomics and security. This means it is not as flexible as the B680H, because it doesn’t have a housing that can easily be replaced anytime for easy maintenance and repairs.
Genius Rainbow can also beam up to 5m only unlike the B680H that can go all the way to 8m up. However, they are more affordable, and also have heavy-duty construction and can hold its own in extreme weather conditions.
How the FAAC B680H measures up
There are several reasons why B680H may be the best option for you and these will include the following:
- It has a switching power supply – This means it has high energy efficiency and extended range, so you can be sure that it can operate from 100 Vac to 240 Vac. Therefore, it is protected from any changes in voltage which is usually caused by non-optimal power supply systems.
- Integrated absolute encoder – This boom gate also features an integrated encoder that can detect obstacles and will automatically trigger the beam to block the passage, so this can also be used on pedestrian passages to enforce safety standards.
- Elliptically-profiled modular beams – The B680H has the longest beams and using two modules, it can even reach up to 8.3m
The only cons for this particular model are its price and size since it’s a bit costly and bigger compared to other boom gates in our range. However, if you want durability, ease of maintenance, and reliability, then this model should be on the top of your list.
We recommend the FAAC B680H Boom Gate for commercial and industrial clients especially if you have a sizeable carpark and you want to control the flow of traffic using a reliable boom gate. It’s also more costly than our other products, but the features and components outweigh its price – since it’s one of the most durable and flexible boom gates on our inventory.
Overall, the B680H is a great barrier system for a variety of uses and you can never go wrong if you choose to purchase it for your property.
