The QUIKO range of hands-free opening devices satisfies various types of demands, from those simpler to those more professional. It is composed by two new series of product, AMBROGIO and FALCON, which allow, in different ways, to simply give the opening command to an electric gate approaching it with a car.

AMBROGIO is a long range transponder system and it is studied for both civil and industrial use while FALCON is an advanced license plate recognition system and it is particularly adapt to an industrial use which requires high security.

FALCON is the revolutionary license plate recognition system from QUIKO allowing to control an automatic gate or barrier simply approaching it with an authorized car. The system is composed by two main components: a computer including license plate management software and a special camera.

The way it works is very simple; after initial setup the computer memorizes the license plates which are allowed to control a specific gate so that, when the vehicle approaches the special camera within a maximum distance of 5 meters and the license plate is recognized, the gate opens. QK-FLC1, QK-FLC2, QK-FLC3 and QK-FLC4 are computers allowing, respectively, the control of 1,2,3 and 4 different entrances. QK-FLCCAM is the special camera to be connected to one of the mentioned computers. Each different channel of the computer requires a different QK-FLCCAM. The optional QK-FLCSW software is indicated for those installations where more than 4 different entrances need to be handled and it stands as a supervision software for more license plate recognition computers.

FALCON is fully compatible with both QUIKO and preexisting automations and is particularly recommended where maximum security is required. For a correct operation it is necessary that the license plate is reflecting type.

AMBROGIO is the innovative, state-of-the-art hands-free opening system from QUIKO, which allows to enable an automation without usage of transmitters but simply approaching the electric gate with the car. In such way the driver remains constantly focused on driving thus ensuring greater safety to both himself and passengers, while AMBROGIO opens the gate.

The system consists of three components: a trigger antenna to be installed next to the gate, an active tag to be placed inside the car and a radio receiver to be connected to the control board of the automation. Once the car has entered the detection area, which is a distance either frontal or lateral from the trigger antenna not exceeding 5m, the active tag transmits a 868 MHz Rolling-Code (both high security and invulnerability of the system are guaranteed) to the radio receiver connected to the control board of the automation, which gives the further command to open the gate.

The system can be installed easily and quickly, moreover it’s fully expandable: a serial connection of up to 4 trigger antennas is possible in order to increase the detection area of the system and up to 500 active tags can be memorized within each radio receiver. AMBROGIO is compatible with both QUIKO electric gate systems and preinstalled systems.
