ABOUT US VMAG (Velocity Magnetic) is a state-of-the-art linear induction motor system designed to make airport operation areas gates and other security-sensitive properties safer. VMAG utilizes electromagnetic technology, which is up to three times faster than traditional slide gate operators. VMAG is currently in use at the San Antonio International Airport operations area and has cycled through more than 150,000 times with a 100% success rate.

 since only one vehicle is permitted access at a time," says Pat O‟Connor of VMAG. "This revolutionary VMAG technology securely locks gates with unmatched speed and reliability, conquering the inherent weaknesses in other existing slide gate systems." Interestingly, the VMAG utilizes similar technology found on high -speed roller coasters, whose motors are entirely magnetic, resulting in reliability and fast but smooth rides. "VMAG has a 100% success rate after cycling through more than 150-thousand times at the San Antonio International Airport with absolutely no equipment problems relating to this heavy usage," stated O‟Connor. The VMAG has no gear boxes, hydraulic hoses, cables or roller chain, which become maintenance issues over time, thereby compromising reliability. It is constructed using only magnetic coupling, which provides a smooth operational process. VMAG can be adapted to new or existing slide gates of any weight and length.
