How does a drop-arm optical turnstile works?
Drop-arm optical turnstile has a single passage barring arm which fully drop into recesses in the cabinet when opening and lift back into position to block the passage when closing. It is equipped with an array of sensors which provide a reasonably effective deterrent against multiple entries, and an alarm will sound when more than one person attempts to pass at a time or tries to come in the wrong direction.
