Driveway Gate Exit Wand and Exit Loop Information

Exit wands are also known as magnetometers, which sense changes in the Earth’s magnetic field. An easy way to explain how exit wands work is to picture a boat traveling through the water. As the boat travels, it creates waves. As your car travels through the magnetic field of the Earth, it creates similar waves, like the boat. The exit wand’s magnetometer picks up on these waves as you travel by the wand. One downside of exit wands is that they lose sight of your vehicle when it is stopped.
Gate Crafters carries 5 different types of exit wands that are very similar to each other. The only difference between these wands are some of their features. The GTO/PRO wireless exit wand is wireless between the magnetometer and receiver. The Gate Crafters exit wand is manufactured by EMX and has been around for years. The GTO exit wand is recommended for use with other GTO openers and accessories. The Estate Swing exit wand comes with a range control board that allows you to adjust the sensitivity of the magnetometer. This feature allows you to tune the range of the exit wand down, so that vehicles such as lawn mowers don’t open your gate, but this isn’t completely reliable, as it will still operate the gate opener when something is nearby. The Estate Swing Deluxe Exit wand is the most different from the other exit wands. It is constructed out of copper and features a ground cable that attaches to a grounding rod that helps protect this exit wand from lighting strikes. The other 4 exit wands do not have this feature and are susceptible to damage from lightning strikes. The Estate Swing Deluxe Exit Wand also comes with a 5 year warranty, which is longer than any other exit wands we sell.

Exit loops differ from exit wands in that they are buried in the driveway in a loop and are wired to the gate opener. The way exit loops work is that they detect the presence of metal (your car) above the loop. It does not matter if your car is moving or not, the loop will detect the car. Besides being used to exit your property, exit loops are used for safety. When exit loops are used as a safety device, they will prevent your gate from closing on your car when it detects a car nearby to your gate. The exit loop is wired to an exit loop detector, which is then wired into your gate opener's control board.
