HALO's FORTRESS™ Automatic Gate Controls are the link between HALO's port security solutions and port control operators and officers.
The FORTRESS™ Automatic Gate Control is a hardware and software package that unifies the various electronic, software, sensors, and electro-motive equipment into a cohesive control system.
The FORTRESS™ AGC hardware is extremely robust and supports flexible power requirements. The FORTRESS™ control hardware can be matched to customer's existing infrastructure.
Marine hardened environmental controls are included with every FORTRESS AGC system to allow continuous operation in temperatures up to 50°C.
- Regulated gate control tensions - Optimized, application tailored, system sizing reduces operating costs and boosts overall system efficiency and performance.
- Electronic braking system - Electronic back-tension and brake system reduces maintenance and simplifies operation.
- Optional power regeneration - Further reduces system operating costs.
- Unifies sensor data - Provides operators with precise sea-gate and tow line positions and tensions. As well as supervisory monitoring of third party systems.
- Self-Monitoring - Continuously monitors system components and processor status for rapid alerting of system warnings and alarms.
- Continuous system monitoring - Rapidly alerts operators of abnormal conditions.
- Flexible control interfaces - Local and Remote operator controls.
- Optional local operator hand-held wireless control - Provides easy local control and allows operators and maintainers to remain shipboard.
- Operational Overview - Compiles and displays system status and alerts to operators locally and remotely, allowing them to make informed decisions about gate operations and system status.
- Situational Awareness - Operators know the status of the gate at any time. Combined with closed circuit camera systems, greatly improves overall situational awareness.
Integrations and Communications
- Flexible field bus - Integrates into existing port or marina controls.
- "COTS" networking hardware- Communication over commercially available off-the-shelf Ethernet hardware.
