So­lar pow­ered farm gate open­ers

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

The So­lar Pow­ered Au­to­matic Gate Opener is so con­ve­nient, you can now re­motely open the gate in the rain or at night, with­out get­ting out of your ve­hi­cle.

Af­ter pass­ing through the gate, it au­to­mat­i­cally closes be­hind you and locks the gate with a pos­i­tive lock­ing sys­tem, us­ing a lock­ing shaft and a lock­ing bracket that can­not be pushed open, pro­vid­ing you with max­i­mum se­cu­rity.

The Drive Unit is a heavy duty, 24volt swing arm, metal geared mech­a­nism that pro­vides long life, re­li­a­bil­ity and fast gate open­ing/clos­ing time of typ­i­cally 12 to 13 sec­onds . The sys­tem comes with two bat­ter­ies to pro­vide you with ad­di­tional open/closes to cover ex­tended pe­ri­ods of lit­tle or no sun­shine. This amount of bat­tery power will pro­vide 500-600 gate open­ings/clos­ings with­out charg­ing, on a nor­mal farm gate.

The gate opener is avail­able as So­lar Pow­ered that re­quires no elec­tri­cal power at the gate, low volt­age that is ca­bled from a nearby power out­let (no elec­tri­cian re­quired), or 240volt sys­tem which does re­quire power to be ca­bled to the gate. All sys­tems have bat­tery backup when there is no sun­light (for so­lar) or loss of elec­tri­cal power such as a black­out (for 240volt or low volt­age).

Vis­i­tor but­tons can be added to the gate sys­tem, which al­lows for visi­tors who do not have a re­mote con­trol trans­mit­ter. These vis­i­tor but­tons can be hard wired back to the con­trol box, or can be wire­less push­but­tons which do not re­quire ca­bling (no trenches to be dug). For se­cu­rity, a wire­less key­pad can be in­stalled, which re­quires a PIN num­ber to gain en­try.

Ad­di­tional op­tions can be in­cluded, like photo elec­tric sen­sors to stop the gate clos­ing on slower ve­hi­cles, such as large trucks or farm ma­chin­ery, in ground ve­hi­cle loops to open the gate when a ve­hi­cle drives over the loop and re­mote con­trolled gate lock so that all vis­i­tor en­try but­tons can be dis­abled from your ve­hi­cle as you leave the prop­erty or re­tire at night.

Other op­tions also in­clude re­mote con­trols to con­trol your gate from up to 2km or alarms to warn the gate is open­ing up to 2km away.

The gate con­troller kits come as an easy to in­stall DIY kit which is al­ways sup­ported by the team dur­ing and af­ter in­stal­la­tion.
