Gate motor Repairs basics

The typical gate motor works a 12V dc motor system and is a self contained unit,
which comprise of a single 12 Volt direct current electrical motor that drives
the rack pinion through a reduction gearbox. The electrical motor, carrier
bearing and associated components are mounted in a rust treated base
box. The base box is secured to the base plate, which in turn is cemented
or bolted to a concrete base. The complete unit is enclosed with a weather
resistant lid.

The gate motor system is rigidly build for reliability, but with safety as first
priority. The electronic control card in conjunction with the limit switches
makes provision for the several unique features, such as remote controlled
gate opening, pedestrian opening facility, obstruction (ìimpactî) sensing,
adjustable ìauto closeî facility, infra red obstruction sensing facility
(optional) and normal push button operation.

A 12 Volt battery is used as the power source for the electrical motor. A
220 Volt trickle charger maintains the battery in a fully charged state. The
220 Volt current for the transformer is derived from a normal 220 volt mains
supply. The system can operate from a 17V ac supply if a more economical
cable from the main power supply to the gate motor is required

Basic Gate Motor operation Procedures

1. Lower the manual override lever and move the gate to halfway open
position. Raise the override lever to engage the pinion into the rack.
2. Press the remote control button. The gate must move to the open
position and stop. If necessary, adjust the alluminium stopper position
on the rack.
NOTE
If the gate moves to the closed position on the first
activation, the electrical motor direction is incorrectly set
and must be reversed. Refer to ìReversing the Electrical
Motor Directionî on page 13 for the correct procedure.
3. The gate will remain in the open position for the time as pre-selected
during the Auto Close dip switch settings. Gate will move to the fully
closed position and stop. If necessary, adjust the alluminium stopper
position on the rack.
4. Perform an obstruction-sensing test. If necessary, refer to
ìObstruction Sensitivity Adjustmentî on Page 14 and adjust the
obstruction sensitivity.
5. Test the operation of the gate from inside the house by using the
push button.
DAILY OPERATION
1. The gate can now be operated by either the remote control or the
push button inside the house.
2. If either the remote control or the push button is pressed while the
gate is in motion, the gate will react as follows:
a. If Gate Were Closing: The gate will stop and open.
— Page 18 —
b. If Gate Were Opening: The gate will stop and wait for the next
command. If the ìAuto Closeî function is selected, the gate will
close after the preset time.
3. If the gate senses an obstruction while closing, the gate will stop and
move to the open position.
4. If the gate senses an obstruction while opening, the gate will stop and
wait for the next command. If the ìAuto Closeî function is selected,
the gate will close after the preset time
BUZZER
1. A buzzer is mounted on the electronic control card and acts as an
audible tell tale indicator conveying the following messages:
 Continuous beeps (approximately one beep every second) ñ
Gate is either opening or closing.
 A single continuous beep (approximately two seconds) ñ
Warning that gate is going to close.
 Double beeps in succession ñ Indicates a Main Power Supply
Problem.
 Triple beeps in succession ñ Indicates a Low Battery Voltage.
 Approximately one beep every 5 seconds after gate has closed ñ
Gate is not fully closed.
2. The buzzer can be de-activated by removing the buzzer jumper from
