IMPORTANT Safety instructions
Even if you have owned and used an automated gate before, we suggest that
you read through the safety instructions below very carefully. Although years
of thought have been put into every CENTURION product – and your safety is
our top priority – accidents do happen. So, please make sure that you fully
understand the following safety requirements before using your automated
gate.
Before you attempt to use your new gate operator for the first time, you
should know:
&
How to operate the Manual Release thumbwheel
&
How the Obstruction Detection System and all other safety features work
&
All the safety considerations that come with operating an automated gate
– and the importance of explaining these considerations to everyone who
uses the operator
DOs and DON’Ts
1. Do not activate your gate opener unless you can see it. Make sure that no
people, pets or any other obstructions are in your gate’s area of travel.
2. NO ONE MAY CROSS THE PATH OF A MOVING GATE. Our advanced
obstruction detection technology is designed to stop your gate in its
tracks should a child or pet be in the way. However this is a reactive
system and should never supersede proactive measures of preventing
people, pets or vehicles from moving into the path of a moving gate.
3. Check if the obstruction detection system and safety devices for correct
operation are in working order once a month.
4. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the
appliance.
5. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with
reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience
and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
6. Always be mindful of where your limbs are when dealing with moving
parts – you don’t want your fingers to be pinched (or worse).
7. Keep your gate controls (remote controls) in a safe place. You don’t want
anyone getting in uninvited.
8. Look after your gate and it will look after you. Ensure that all working
areas are debris-free and that your automated system is well-maintained
and your CENTURION operator should last you a very long time.
9. Ensure that any technician that works on your operator has been trained
by CENTURION.
10. This product was designed and built strictly for the use indicated in this
documentation. Any other use, not expressly indicated here, could
compromise the good condition/operation of the product and/or be a
source of danger.
11. Centurion Systems does not accept any liability caused by improper use
of the product, or for use other than that for which the automated system
was intended.

Introduction
This User Guide contains all the information you need to configure and
operate your new D2 Turbo Sliding Gate Operator.
From safety instructions to basic principles of operation and an in-depth
description of your CENTURION product’s many features and functions,
by the time you have finished reading this guide you will have learnt
how to make the most out of your gate operator.
Even Basic Maintenance is covered but, in the unlikely event that your
CENTURION product malfunctions, rather leave it to the professionals
and contact your installer or nearest Centurion Systems branch (contact
details listed on the back page) for prompt assistance.
D2 Turbo overview
The D2 Turbo has various useful features and functions, all easily
accessible from a user-friendly dial-based setup system. Multiple Modes
of Operation,Speed Profiles, an onboard multichannel receiver – you
name it, the D2 Turbo's got it.
The integral 12V 5Ah battery (charged by an internal 220V charger)
comes with full battery backup and advanced lightning protection so you
can always get in – even when the power is out. For increased power
capacity you can install a larger, 7Ah battery (your D2 Turbo was
designed to cater for this), or you can even use a solar panel to power
it. (see the section on Solar Panels, for more details about solar
charging)
The D2 Turbo is designed to open and close domestic sliding gates
weighing up to 250kg. It must not be installed or used to automate the
entrances of townhouses complexes, housing estates, commercial or
industrial properties.
The gearbox, moulded from a high-tech engineering polymer not only
looks good, but is corrosion-free and guarantees that even if you live at
the coast, your D2 Turbo will just keep on going.
For your security, the internal gearset has a self-locking action so forced
entry is not an option for would-be burglars.
An optional Theft-resistant Cage and Theft-resistant Locking Nut makes
intruders’ lives even more difficult.
For your safety, our revolutionary limit switch mechanism monitors the
speed and location of your gate for accurate position control and
sensitive anti-crushing protection.

Manual
Override
2.1. Disengaging the
gearbox/drive
To manually override the
operator you will need to: Open
the camlock cover, insert the
camlock key and rotate it 90°
clockwise (the operator cover
can also be removed at this
stage if so desired).
This will allow for the rotation of
the Manual Release
thumbwheel.
By turning the Manual Release
thumbwheel 90° counterclockwise until it clicks, the
motor pinion will be put into
‘Manual Mode’.
FIGURE 2
2.2. Re-engaging
gearbox/drive
To re-engage the drive
mechanism of the operator, turn
the Manual Release thumbwheel
90° clockwise until it clicks.
Once you have re-engaged the
drive mechanism don’t forget to
lock the camlock by inserting
the key and rotating it 90?
counter-clockwise – this will
help prevent unauthorised
tampering with the operator.
By locking the camlock, the
Manual Release thumbwheel
cannot be moved from ‘locked’
to ‘unlocked’ and vice versa.

3. Features and functions
Introduction
The D2 Turbo sliding gate operator's advanced functions are controlled
by an intelligent micro-controller based electronic controller.
Features
and
functions
FIGURE 4
3.1. Gate operation
3.1.1. Full Gate Opening
The NOVA remote controls (with
KeeloqTM encryption) supplied
with the D2 Turbo are used to
operate the gate.
However, most automatic gate
installations are also fitted with
an intercom, which provides for
communication between the
house or building and the gate.
The handset is usually fitted
with a gate pushbutton, which
when pressed, sends a signal to
the D2 Turbo controller to
operate the gate.
FIGURE 5
3.1.2. Modes of Operation
To operate the gate to open fully, the D2 Turbo has three modes to
choose from depending on the application. Only one mode can be
selected at any given time.
&
3.1.2.1. Standard Mode
Standard Mode is the most commonly used mode for domestic
applications as it allows full control of the gate. Press the remote
control button for approximately one second to get the gate in
motion. If the remote control button is pressed while the gate is
page 5
moving, the gate will stop. Press the remote control button again
and the gate will go into reverse.
Autoclose (page 7) and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9) can be
used together with Standard Mode.
Features
and
functions
&
3.1.2.2. Open Only Mode
This mode is ideal for increased safety in multi-user single dwelling
applications.
If you select Open Only Mode, your gate will open when you press
the button of the remote control or the gate pushbutton on the
intercom – but pressing the button again while the gate is opening
will be ignored. It will not cause the gate to stop or to reverse.
Only the internal Autoclose feature described on page 7 of this User
Guide, which is automatically enabled, will close the gate if you have
selected Open Only Mode.
If the button of the remote control or intercom gate release is
pressed while the gate is closing, the gate will immediately reopen.
The gate cannot be stopped in a midway position and will therefore
always close. If the button is pressed while the gate is in the open
position, the Autoclose timer (page 7) will be reset.
We highly recommended that a pair of safety beams are
installed across the gate entrance and connected to the
closing safety beam input on the D2 Turbo if you select
Open Only Mode. This will prevent the gate from closing
on people, pets or vehicles. (page 11)
PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9) can be used with Open
Only Mode.
&
3.1.2.3. Reversing Mode
Reversing Mode offers slightly more security than Standard Mode as
it allows you to close your gate quickly by pressing, for instance,
your remote control just as you drive through the gate to prevent
children or pets running out - or anybody getting in behind you.
When pressing the button of the remote control or the gate
pushbutton on the intercom, your gate will be set in motion. If you
press the button again, the gate will move in the opposite direction.
So, if the gate is opening and you press the button, the gate will
stop and immediately start to close (and vice versa).
Autoclose (page 7) and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9)
can be used with Reversing Mode.
To configure any of the operating modes please refer to the section,
‘Customising the Functions and Settings’ on page 24.
page 6
3.1.3. Automatic closing (Autoclose Mode)
The D2 Turbo has the facility to automatically close the gate after it
has opened (Autoclose Mode). The time that the gate stays open is by
default fifteen seconds, but this time period can be set to be five, ten,
fifteen, thirty, or forty-five seconds.
As described in the previous section, Autoclose Mode is selectable with
Standard Mode (page 5) and Reversing Mode (page 6) - by default the
function is Off. However, Autoclose is automatically enabled in Open
Only Mode.
CENTURION highly recommends that if you select Autoclose
Mode in order to prevent the gate from closing on people,
pets or vehicles, a pair of safety beams are installed across
the gate entrance and connected to the Closing Safety Beam
input on the D2 Turbo.
&
3.1.3.1. Autoclose Override
Autoclose Mode can be
overridden in Standard and
Reversing Modes by pressing
and holding the button of the
remote control or intercom gate
release for no less than three
seconds. The gate response will
be to start opening and then to
stop as soon as the Autoclose
Override feature is activated.
On releasing the button, the
gate will continue opening until
fully open.
Your gate will stay open until
you use the remote control or
intercom gate release to close
the gate. The D2 Turbo will
then revert to normal Autoclose
operation.
Press and hold remote
control pushbutton;
gate will start to open

Features
and
functions
3.1.4. Pedestrian Opening
The Pedestrian Opening input
opens the gate just wide enough
for a pedestrian to pass
through the opening.
Features
and
functions
A second button on your remote
control can be used to operate
the Pedestrian Opening function.
You can also connect a
keyswitch or keypad mounted
adjacent the gate entrance to
operate this function.
FIGURE 7
There is a default two second
delay before the gate opens.
This is to warn the pedestrian
that the gate is about to move.
FIGURE 8
It will also give the person enough time to move their hand away if they
are reaching through the gate to operate a keyswitch or a keypad*. If
the Courtesy Light* (page 13) is connected to the D2 Turbo's control
card, it will flash indicating that the gate will open approximately one
metre. The gate will close after a default time of five seconds.
The gate can be kept open by keeping a trigger on the input (keeping
your key in the keyswitch, for example) – once removed the gate will
close after the fixed five seconds.
If a Closing Safety Beam (page 12) is fitted and the beam is broken
while the gate is closing, the gate will stop and open to the Pedestrian
Opening position. The gate will remain open while the beam is broken
and the five second (fixed) Autoclose Delay will only commence once
the beam has been cleared.
* For safety reasons it is recommended that all pedestrian
keyswitches and keypads are installed on the opposite end
of the gate to where the operator is installed.
page 8
3.1.5. PIRAC Mode (Beam Autoclose Mode) - optional
This mode can only be used if a Closing Safety Beam (page
12) is fitted.
This mode can be used in conjunction with any of the Operating Modes Standard, Open Only and Reversing Modes.
Gate
opening
With PIRAC Mode enabled, your
gate will close as soon as you
have driven through and passed
the Safety Beam – giving
intruders no time to follow
behind you.

If Autoclose Mode is enabled
and the gate has been opened
but nothing moves through the
Closing Safety Beam, the gate
will stay fully open for the
duration of the Autoclose timer
before closing. However, if
something passes through the
closing beam the gate will close
immediately.

Features
and
functions
3.1.6. Holiday Lockout Mode
This feature completely immobilises the operator and deactivates all
inputs so nobody can get into your property while you are away.
Features
and
functions
One of the buttons on your remote control can be used to switch the
Holiday Lockout function as well as a latching keyswitch or keypad
mounted adjacent the gate entrance, accessible from the outside of the
property.
When Holiday Lockout is
enabled, any of the access
control devices that are
connected to the D2 Turbo will
be rendered inactive. Not even
tampering with the keyswitch or
keypad on the outside of the
property will open the gate –
this is particularly useful if you
intend leaving your property
unattended for extended periods
of time.
FIGURE 12
If Holiday Lockout is enabled while the gate is moving or in the open
position, it will only activate once the gate is back in the closed position.
If somebody tries to open the gate via a valid remote control, keypad
code, etc. and Holiday Lockout is enabled, the onboard buzzer will emit
one beep periodically for 30 seconds to confirm that the gate has been
disabled using this feature.
To enable / disable the Holiday Lockout Mode feature, please refer to
the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 19.
3.1.7. Positive Close Mode
Positive Close Mode is intended for applications where the gate must
close fully against the gate end post for security reasons – such as
ensuring proper contact of a switch on the gate that feeds power to an
electric fence.
This feature operates only during the last few millimetres when the gate
closes.
It is recommended that a rubber strip be fixed to the front
edge of the gate to reduce the noise when the gate closes
against the end post.
To enable / disable the Positive Close Mode feature, please refer to the
section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 28.
page 10
3.1.8. Speed Profiles
There’s no substitute for speed!
The D2 Turbo can be set to run on either a High Speed Mode (default)
which is approximately 24 metres per minute, or a Low Speed Mode
which is approximately 16 metres per minute.
High speeds offer a greater level of convenience and security, while
slower speeds ensure increased levels of safety at the gate.
To change the Speed Profile, please refer to the section, 'Customising
the Functions and Settings' on page 29.
3.1.9. Anti-crushing Sensitivity
The D2 Turbo incorporates a sensitive electronic anti-crushing
technology that responds in the events that a person or vehicle
obstructs your gate.
Using this technology, the
typical response for an opening
gate is to immediately stop and
retract a short distance, while a
closing gate will stop and fully
re-open.
Collision Sensing can be set to
either High Sensitivity or Low
Sensitivity. Generally High
Sensitivity should be used, but
in instances where the gate runs
very poorly Low Sensitivity can
be selected.
FIGURE 13
&
3.1.9.1. Collision Count
A counter monitors the number of collisions the gate experiences
before it fully closes. If the number exceeds the default value of
four, the gate will stop. The Status LED (page 14) will flash four
times every second until a remote control or intercom gate release
pushbutton is pressed.
Please refer to Gate Status Indication (page 14) for more
information on this diagnostic device.
To change the Sensitivity setting, please refer to the section,
'Customising the Functions and Settings' on page 30.
3.1.10. Safety Beams
(optional, but recommended feature)
It is always recommended to connect additional safety mechanisms to
the D2 Turbo instead of relying only on the inherent anti-crushing
protection, referred to above.
page 11
Features
and
functions
The typical device is a pair of Infrared Safety Beams which can detect
the presence of any vehicle, person or pet that breaks the beam and
communicates back to the D2 Turbo that something is in the path of
the gate.
Features
and
functions
Another option is an Inductive Loop Detector, which is mounted in the
ground, adjacent to the gate, which is very effective at detecting
vehicles or the like, but not persons or pets.
&
3.1.10.1. Closing Safety
Beams
Closing Safety Beams
provide additional protection
against your gate closing on
people or vehicles. If the
beam is broken while the
gate is opening, the gate will
continue to open. If the gate
is open, the gate cannot be
closed if the beam is broken,
and if the gate is closing
when the beam is broken, it
will stop and reopen.
FIGURE 14
If you select the Autoclose (page 7) feature, the gate will remain
open if the beam is broken and it will only close after the set
Autoclose time has expired when the beam has cleared.
Please contact CENTURION for more information on suitable
protection devices.
&
3.1.10.2. Opening Safety
Beams
These beams prevent your
gate from opening if an
object, person or pet is in
the way.
If the beam is broken while
the gate is closed, the gate
will not open. If the gate is
opening and the beams are
broken, it will stop then
close. If the gate is closing
while the beams are broken,
it will continue to close.
FIGURE 15
page 12
3.1.11. Courtesy (Pillar) Light Timer
(optional feature)
Courtesy (Pillar) Lights can be
connected through the D2
Turbo controller if an
adequate* 220V power supply is
available at the gate. The lights
will switch on every time the
gate is given a signal to operate
(the trigger could be a remote
control button, or the gate
pushbutton on an intercom.
Features
and
functions
The lights will stay on for a fixed
period of two minutes, then
automatically turn off.
FIGURE 16
The purpose is to bathe your entrance with light when you open the
gates and increase your security as you drive into your property – it
also saves electricity as the lights only come on when you use the gate
motor.
Using the Pedestrian Opening feature will cause the Courtesy (Pillar)
Lights to flash three times before the gate opens.
*The cabling that supplies the 220V supply to the D2 Turbo must be
suitably sized to carry the additional load of the courtesy (pillar) lights.
&
3.1.11.1. Courtesy (Pillar) Lights act as Warning Light
These modes replace the standard Courtesy Light feature
&
3.1.11.1A. Pre-flashing
Modes
Depending on your
requirements or local
regulations, your gate
automation system can
provide for two different
safety Pre-flashing Modes
which will activate the
gate’s pillar lights if fitted
and connected to the
D2 Turbo controller.
FIGURE 17
&
Pre-flashing Mode A
With Pre-flashing Mode A activated, the pillar light relay will only
activate during gate movement.
&
Pre-flashing Mode C
With Pre-flashing Mode C activated, the pillar light relay will activate
for two seconds before gate movement occurs, as well as during
gate movement. This means that gate movement will be delayed for
page 13
a period of two seconds after a trigger signal has been received.
To change the Courtesy (Pillar) to one of the Pre-flashing Modes, please
refer to the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 27.
3.1.12. External Gate Status Indication LED
Features
and
functions
A LED (Light Emitting Diode)
mounted on your intercom
allows you to view the position
of your gate and the condition of
the battery and power supply
from the safety of your home.
The different signals of the LED
are described below:
FIGURE 18
Off
Gate is closed
On
Gate is partially or fully open
Continuous slow flash
Gate is opening
Continuous fast flash
Gate is closing
Two flashes every two seconds
No mains present
Three flashes every two seconds
Battery voltage is low
Four flashes every two seconds
Multiple collisions have occurred
If you choose not to fit a Gate Status Indicator, the Status LED
on the controller can also be used for trouble-shooting.
3.1.13. Battery Low Protection
The D2 Turbo’s controller has circuitry that monitors the state of the
battery. During a power failure, energy is drawn from the battery but
not replaced.
To protect the battery from being quickly damaged, the protection
circuitry prevents the motors from being run off the battery when the
battery voltage drops below 10.6 volts.
Indication that the Battery Low Protection has been triggered is
provided by the onboard buzzer and status LED on the controller (and
intercom if so equipped and connected to the controller). The LED will
flash three times every two seconds, as will the buzzer beep three times
every two seconds.
The gate system will also shut off until such time as the battery has
recharged to an acceptable level.
Consult your gate automation specialist or Centurion Systems if you
discover that your Battery Low Protection signal continues to re-occur.

Examples:
A. Setting up the gate Limits
This is usually performed by an installer at the end of the installation.
However, should you need to change these settings, you can do this by
simply following these steps:
Step 1: Ensure the gate is in the fully closed position and the motor
drive is engaged.
Customising
the
features
and
functions
Step 2: Rotate the Function Dial
to the LIMITS position (A).
Step 3: Rotate the Setting Dial
to the SETUP position along the
‘A’ row of options.
FIGURE 21
Step 4: Press the Pushbutton to
select this feature.

The gate will then run through
its automated procedure to
determine the gate's open and
closed positions. If setup is
successful, the Status LED will
be green, which indicates the
setup has finished.

B. Remote control administration
Customising
the
features
and
functions
The D2 Turbo controller
incorporates an onboard
multichannel receiver compatible
with NOVA secure rolling code
(KeeloqTM encryption). The receiver
will allow any combination of the
different inputs - Trigger (Gate
fully open), Pedestrian, Holiday
Lockout, etc. to be operated from
a single multi-button remote
control.
You can also artificially increase
the number of buttons by using a
two button combination. One of
the buttons is used as a shift
button to allow the other buttons
to be used again in combination
with this button. Press and hold
the allocated shift button and
then press one of the other
buttons to create a new button.
The shift button cannot be used
as a button on its own - it must
always be used in combination
with another button.
FIGURE 25

Shift key

Use of the shift button principle
allows a three button transmitter to
gain an extra button and operate
four functions and a four button
transmitter gains two extra buttons
and can operate six functions. This is
quite handy if you’d like to control
additional devices from a single
multi-button remote control, for
example your garage doors if they
are equipped with CENTURION
NOVA rolling code receivers
(KeeloqTM encryption).
6
Press and
hold the
‘fourth’ button
as a shift key
together with
button 1, 2 or
3 to operate
4, 5 or 6
FIGURE 26
However, it’s important to note that the other devices cannot be activated with
the new shift button, only the D2 Turbo (and other CENTURION operators that
are equipped with an onboard receiver) is able to recognise the shift button
signals. Using the shift key principle also prevents you from enabling functions like
Holiday Lockout Mode by accident. This is because you have to use both hands to
press the two button combination.
At any stage remote controls can be selectively added or deleted within the
system. To selectively delete a remote control, the remote control must be
available, please refer to the section, 'Deleting specific remote controls' on
page 20.

5. Additional features
5.1. Battery saver
In the event of a battery low
shutdown, only the motor will
stop drawing current – the
controller, infrared beams and
any other peripheral device will
continue to flatten the battery,
however, at a much slower rate.
An optional low cut-out switch
(product code CP107) totally
disconnects the battery and
protects it from being fully
discharged and potentially
damaged.
Consult your gate automation
specialist or Centurion Systems
for further details.
FIGURE 68
5.2. Solar power supply
A solar panel can be used to
charge the battery instead of
the conventional charging
circuit. A 20 Watt panel will
provide enough power for 20
daily operations (less if 12V DC
security lights are fitted) of an
average gate.
FIGURE 69

6. Basic maintenance
CENTURION operators are designed to be maintenance-free. However,
there are some basic checks that should be carried out regularly, (every
six months). These checks will increase the long term reliability of the
system and prevent erratic operation of your gate.
WARNING! Isolate mains supply to system before
cleaning or working on the equipment.
General
Basic
maintenance
&
Keep the track clear of stones, dirt and obstructions
&
Ensure that all rollers run freely
&
Put the operator into Manual Mode and check that the gate runs
freely on its rail and does not catch or foul against the walls or
pillars
&
Ensure that the gate wheels and guide-rollers are rotating freely and
are not worn. In high-volume applications it will be necessary to
replace these components regularly
&
Ensure that the rack is properly secured to the gate and that it does
not press down onto the operator pinion at any point along its travel
&
Keep shrubs and vegetation clear of the motor and rack
&
Check that the key still operates the camlock - spray with lubrication
if necessary
&
Keep the inside of the motor housing clear of insects and dust
Battery
Servicing
CENTURION operators are fitted with high quality, maintenance-free
lead acid batteries which should provide up to three years of normal
service life.
&
Check for corrosion of the battery terminals.
&
Clean and apply copper-based grease as necessary.
7. Servicing your D2 Turbo
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Consult Centurion
Systems for assistance.
Your D2 Turbo sliding gate operator requires no special care other than
that described in the Maintenance section.
If you are having a problem with your D2 Turbo sliding gate operator,
please contact your installer or Centurion Systems.
page 32
8. Diagnostics
Depending on the type of fault or condition of the motor, audible
feedback will be given via the onboard buzzer. Listen out for this and
refer to the table below:
The different conditions are given in order of precedence.
Battery Low – Buzzer will emit three beeps every two seconds for 30
seconds. Refer to section, 'Battery Low’
Multiple Collisions – Buzzer will beep periodically until condition is
cleared. Refer to section, ‘Anti-crushing, collision count’
Holiday Lockout Mode – If Holiday Lockout Mode has been enabled,
when triggering to operate the gate, the gate will not operate but the
buzzer will emit one beep periodically for 30 seconds
Mains Failure – If the mains supply to the charger has failed the
buzzer will emit two beeps every two seconds for 30 seconds
Safety Beams Broken – if something in the path of the beams the
buzzer will emit one beep periodically for 30 seconds
Safety Beams Failure – if the safety beams are not operating the
buzzer will emit three beeps each time the gate is triggered
Contact your gate automation specialist or Centurion Systems for
further assistance.
WARNING! Do not attempt to repair the unit yourself.
Any work performed by unauthorised personnel may
void the warranty.
