Whichever type of gate operator is used their will be a commonality in the gate control system used and these generally fall into two categories which are impulse to open, impulse to close and impulse to open timed close.
As the title suggests this type of control set up will require a definite impulse to make the gates open and they will then remain open until receiving another impulse telling them to close. These impulses can be provided by hand transmitters, weatherproof push buttons, digital keypads, key switches or intercom systems.
Opening of the gates can be by any of the input devices mentioned above the difference then being that the gates will close automatically following a preset dwell time providing all safety devices are clear. This type of control system will need additional safety/sensing devices to allow safe operation for both vehicles and pedestrians.

Safety is always the prime consideration when designing and installing an automatic gate system.
Safety devices include photo beams, safety edges, underground induction loops, intelligent control circuitry and physical attachments to ensure all of our installations comply fully with the all of the current regulations.
On completion of an installation and in future service visits all gate operations will be force tested to ensure initial and continued compliance.
Solar Powered Automatic Gates
