Large, 24V Motor – It is one of the largest swing gate motors available for any residential estate gate opener. It is capable of handling driveway security gates up to 550 lbs, which more than many heavily ornamented electric gates weigh.
Control Board, Easy Read Diagnostics – The LED light diagnostic on the control board permits easy diagnostics of problems or missing connections. This allows efficient repair and swift continuation of normal electric gate operation.
Soft Start/Soft Stop Soft start/soft stop is a feature in which the control board, during the set up process, learns where the opening and closing points are for the swing of the gate. Then during normal operation the gate operator automatically slows the motion of the gate to smoothly meet with the gates destination point. This reduces stress on the gate and operator for extended functionality.
