Gate Motor Repairs Basics
The typical gate motor works a 12V dc motor system and is a self-contained unit, which comprises of a single 12-Volt direct current electric 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 built 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 (impact) sensing, adjustable auto-close facility, infrared 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.
Gate Motor Basic Safety Warnings
- Make sure that the gate you fit this unit to will under no circumstances overrun its track, even by brute force.
- Never work on the system with the electrical power on.
- Never allow persons or animals to stand on the gate or track while the gate is in motion.
- Keep hands clear of the rack and pinion gear while the motor is in operation.
- Do not allow anyone to put their hand through the gate trellis while gate is moving.
- Test all operating systems on a regular basis, especially those related to the safety features.
