       Accessory Uses Top of Page

    The Diablo Controls Safety Loop Detector (DSP-6LP) has been specifically designed for solar powered gate applications. This detector will operate on any voltage from 10 to 30 volts AC or DC and draws less than 2 milliamperes while waiting for a car. The power LED blinks continuously once per second to indicate the detector is operating in the low power and fail secure mode.

    The detector's small size and lack of any switches or dials, becomes the industry's first solar powered "Plug-and-Play" vehicle detector. The Diablo Controls Safety Loop Detector is preset to the normal sensitivity level used in parking/access control applications, and tunes itself to the best operating frequency. This micro-sized detector will automatically adjust its sensitivity level when used on different sized loops. Environmental conditions are constantly compensated with the Diablo Controls Safety Loop Detector HYPERTRACK software. Diablo Controls Safety Loop Detector 's inherent noise filtering algorithms allow it to work reliably in any electrical situation.

    GateCrafters.com is the DIY factor. GateCrafters.com further adds to most of our gate openers for easier DIY installation. We have developed exclusive components (example: easy adjustable mounting brackets), customized instructions, and offer a full spectrum of accessories to truly cover all aspects of the installation of your gate opener.

       Accessory Features Top of Page

  • Loop size: Works on any in-ground inductive loop from 20 to 1200 uH.
  • Indicators: Separate Power and Detect LED's. The green and Power LED will blink continuously under normal operation. The red Detect LED      will turn solid for a vehicle.
  • Connector: Easy terminal connections with removable 7-pin terminal block.
  • Sensitivity: Automatic which compensates for large loops or large wire lead-ins.
  • Output Ratings: Single output, 1 amp relay at 30 VDC Resistive, with relay common, N/O, and N/C contacts are available.
  • Loop Failure: The green power indicator flashes slowly if the circuit is open and quickly if the loop circuit is shorted. This detector operates in      fail secure mode and will not output a "Detect" for either of these loop failed conditions.
  • Power: 10 to 30 volts AC or DC, with approximately 1.5mA (no car and all loop sizes) and less than 25mA with a car on the loop perfect for solar      applications.
  • Size: Small compact design allows the controller to fit in almost all control boxes. 1.52"H x 2.9"W x 1.56"D
  • Operating Temperature: -35 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit

    “We are always getting questions about how gate exit wands work and how they are different from exit loops.

    Exit wands are what is know as a magnetometer which senses 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 is traveling it is creating 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 do loose sight of your vehicle when it is stopped.

    Gate Crafters carries 5 different types of exit wands that work 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 recommend for use with other GTO openers and accessories. The Estate Swing exit wand does come with a range control board that allow you to adjust the sensitivity of the magnetometer. This feature allows you tune down the range of the exit wand, so that vehicles such as a lawn mower doesn’t set open your gate, but this isn’t a complete failsafe, 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 attach to a grounding rod that helps protect this exit wand from lightning strikes. The other 4 exit wands do not have this feature and are susceptible to damage from lightning strikes. Also the Estate Swing Deluxe Exit Wand comes with a 5 year warranty, which is longer than any other exit wand we sell.

    Exit loops differ from exit wands in that they are buried in the driveway in a loop and are wire 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 a safety device, they will prevent your gate from closing on your car, when it detect a car nearby to your gate. The exit loop is wired to a exit loop detector, which is then wired into your gate opener’s control board.
