Solar powered farm gate openers
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.
