CENTURION SECTOR high-volume industrial traffic barrier
CENTURION SECTOR high-volume industrial traffic barrier


Lots of vehicles coming in and out? You need something that goes up and down. Fast!

The SECTOR high-volume industrial traffic barrier gives you the ultimate in traffic control. Powered by a beefy custom-built DC motor and gearbox, the CENTURION SECTOR can raise up to a three metre boom pole in a blistering 1.2 seconds.

Operating slightly slower, the SECTOR will effortlessly raise up to a six metre pole smoothly and reliably.

The SECTOR lives fast, but it most certainly doesn't die young. Designed for tough, high-volume traffic control, it will work all day, it will work all night - lasting millions of cycles

Add full battery backup, and the SECTOR is always at your service!

Main features

  • Rapid opening
    Lots of vehicles coming in and out? You need something that goes up and down. Fast! The SECTOR is ideal for high-volume traffic control applications and puts a manically ticking metronome to shame - raising a three metre pole in under 1.2 seconds and lowering it just as quickly.
  • Battery backup
    With our 12V battery driven motor, your security is never compromised. The CENTURION SECTOR will continue to stay on, even when the power is off - beating up and down 3000 times during a 24 hour power failure before it needs a recharge. If you're expecting no power for a while, the built-in mains failure detection can be set to keep the barrier raised under power failure conditions.
  • High-torque boom pole operation
    The SECTOR's DC motor and reduction gearbox generate enough torque to make sure that your boom goes up and down forever and ever. Come sunshine, rain or howling winds, you'll always be able to get in and out.
  • Safe sensitivity for boom pole lowering
    Your boom won't go BOOM on top of a visitor's car. The SECTOR will detect any obstruction, so you're safe - and won't have to fill in any of those pesky insurance forms.
  • Robust, durable and slimline operator casing
    Our slim SECTOR looks particularly fetching - and epoxy-coating, in a highly visible 'traffic yellow', keeps it safe from drivers with terrible eyesight. Available with different levels of corrosion protection for inland, coastal plains, and marine environments.
  • When size matters
    Whether closing off an entrance from as narrow as three metres to as wide as six metres, there is a SECTOR model to suit. Fit the optional jack-knife and your SECTOR traffic barrier can even be fitted in areas with limited headroom.
  • Comprehensive input and output
    With our intuitive, user-friendly LCD interface, setting up the SECTOR is not just simple - it's child's play. Set the SECTOR to handle any vehicle access control application with the touch of a button. To make things even easier, our state of the art motor controller not only ensures smooth and reliable operation, it allows you to set your boom's opening and closing speed to your liking.
  • Operate wirelessly, thanks to CENTURION1
    Besides its code-hopping technology offering the highest level remote control security, this CENTURION onboard receiver is both multichannel and multi-user, allowing a multi-button remote to operate any combination of the system inputs, such as Barrier Raise, Barrier Lower, etc. It stores up to 500 transmitter buttons, and amongst other access control features, it provides the ability to selectively add and delete transmitter buttons saved into its memory.
