Notice: Incorrect Installation, Figure 8 right:  

    Cable must not be installed above the motor arm. It may pinch.

    Also the manual override release must be located face to the ground. Follow correct installation as shown in Figure 8 left.

    VIII. Installation of Extended or Retracted End Motor Arms to Gates:

    A. Drill 2 Holes of 10.2mm Diameter With Space 68mm Between 2 Holes
    B. Locate the 2 Slotted Holes Gate Bracket above the Drilled Holes
    C. Place the End Motor Bracket to the Gate Bracket using the Appropriate Bolts and Tighten Properly(Please note these bolts used to fixed front bracket to the gate are not provided due to the thickness of each gate is different)
    D. Insert the Lock Pin and Clamping Washers

      Ensure that the Post bracket height is in the same exact level with the gate bracket height. 

      Severe difference in height will damage the motor and the motor arm.

      Common questions and answers

      • Always have the gates in the closed position at the start. The gates must be free running the whole way and close to level when open and level when closed otherwise it puts excessive load on the motors.
      • I suggest using a clamp to fix the brackets on the gate and the post before you drill any holes to see if everything works as it should. If using a typical pipe farm gate, try using a 35mm U bolt on the bottom rail of the gate to connect to.
      • Mount the actuator on the gate post, unlock with the key and manually pull out actuator fully. Where the end of the actuator meets the gate is where the bracket should go.
      • Check that all control board settings are correct, set to default.
      • Connect actuators to control board, single gate to motor 2, double gate to motor 1 and 2
      • Connect the power and try a remote, if it opens correctly then fix brackets with screws and bolts.
      • If you find the gate is trying to close when it is already closed, then look for small coloured lights by the terminals on the control board where you connected the actuators. When you use the remote to open the gate and a red light comes on then reverse the two wires. If a blue light shows then it is correct.
      • If you want to make any changes to motor speed, stall force, soft start etc now is the time to do it.
      • Remember to check you have the settings set to auto close if that is what you want, or you will have to use the remote to close the gate.
      • If you make any change to the settings different from default, try it a few increases or decreases at a time, not big jumps. Adjust and test, adjust and test. If you get a problem, reset board to factory default, re-clone the remotes and try again…You won’t break anything.
      • If you have any accessories like lights, keypad, exit buttons etc and the gate will not work correctly now, then disconnect all accessories and go back to the beginning making sure the basic gate system works well, then start connecting accessories again one at a time checking operation each time you make a change.
      • If you are using a solar system, the solar charge controller slides down the left side of the control board, look for the slots. Don’t change the settings of the solar charge controller it is set ready to go. Look at the sheet supplied for solar,  how to wire it up and connect to the 24v terminals.
      • The batteries lay down not stand up in the control box, or they won’t fit.
      • The gate kits are designed to operate 5-6 open/closes per day, any more than that, summer usually ok, but winter you may run out of battery power. You can add an extra solar panel or bigger batteries, or both. Commercial operators use two car or truck batteries and double solar panels.
