ASTM F2200 Standard for Gate Construction
Vehicular gates should be constructed and installed in accordance with ASTM F2200; Standard Specification for Automated
Vehicular Gate Construction. For a copy of this standard, contact ASTM directly at 610-832-9585; service@astm.org; or
www.astm.org.
Important Safety Instructions
WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.
3. Always keep people and objects away from gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4. Test the operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid object or stop or reverse when an object
activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to adjust
and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or death.
5. Use the emergency release only when the gate is not moving.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a qualified service person make repairs to gate
hardware.
7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.
8. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Instructions regarding intended installation:
• Install the gate operator only if:
1. The operator is appropriate for the construction of the gate and the usage class of the gate.
2. All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to a minimum of 6 feet
(1.83 m) above the ground to prevent a 2 ¼ inch (57.2 mm) diameter sphere from passing through the openings
anywhere in the gate, and in that portion of the adjacent fence that the gate covers in the open position.
3. All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded.
4. Guarding is supplied for exposed rollers.
• The operator is intended for installation only on gates used for vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate
access opening. The pedestrian access opening shall be designed to promote pedestrian usage. Locate the gate such that
persons will not come in contact with the vehicular gate during the entire path of travel of the vehicular gate.
• The gate must be installed in a location so that enough clearance is supplied between the gate and adjacent structures
when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates should not open into public access areas.
• The gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions prior to the installation of the gate operator. Do not
over-tighten the operator clutch, pressure relief valve or reduce reversing sensitivity to compensate for a damaged gate.
• For gate operators utilizing Type D protection:
1. The gate operator controls must be placed so that the user has full view of the gate area when the gate is moving.
2. A warning placard shall be placed adjacent to the controls.
3. An automatic closing device (such as a timer, loop sensor, or similar device) shall not be employed.
4. No other activation device shall be connected.
• Controls intended for user activation must be located at least ten feet (10’) away from any moving part of the gate and
where the user is prevented from reaching over, under, around or through the gate to operate the controls. Outdoor or
easily accessible controls should have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.
• The Stop and/or Reset button must be located in the line-of-sight of the gate. Activation of the reset control shall not
cause the operator to start.
• A minimum of two (2) WARNING SIGNS shall be installed, one on each side of the gate where easily visible.
• For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor:
1. See the instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of application.
2. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate
is still moving in the opening direction.
3. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as the
perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
4
6050-065-V-7-11
• For gate operators utilizing contact sensors:
1. One or more contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as at the
leading edge, trailing edge, and post mounted both inside and outside of a vehicular horizontal slide gate.
2. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vehicular vertical lift gate.
3. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the pinch point of a vehicular vertical pivot gate.
4. A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the sensor
and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
5. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for
entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or
impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstructions. A wireless contact sensor shall function
under the intended end-use conditions.
6. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vertical barrier (arm).
Important Notices
Vehicular gate operator products provide convenience and security. However, gate operators must use high levels of force
to move gates and most people underestimate the power of these systems and do not realize the potential hazards associated with an incorrectly designed or installed system. These hazards may include:
• Pinch points
• Entrapment areas
• Reach through hazards
• Absence of entrapment protection devices
• Improperly located access controls
• Absence of vehicle protection devices
• Absence of controlled pedestrian access
In addition to these potential hazards, automated vehicular gate systems must be installed in accordance with the UL-325
Safety Standard and the ASTM F2200 Construction Standard. Most lay persons are unaware of, or are not familiar with,
these standards. If an automated vehicular gate system is not properly designed, installed, used and maintained, serious
injuries or death can result. Be sure that the installer has instructed you on the proper operation of the gate and gate
operator system.
Be sure that the installer has trained you about the basic functions of the required reversing systems associated with your
gate operating system and how to test them. These include reversing loops, inherent reversing system, electric edges,
photoelectric cells, or other external devices.
• This Owner’s Manual is your property. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
• Be sure that all access control devices are installed a minimum distance of 10 feet away from the gate and gate
operator, or in such a way that a person cannot touch the gate or gate operator while using the device. If access
control devices are installed in violation of these restrictions, immediately remove the gate operator from service
and contact your installing dealer.
• Loops and loop detectors, photo-cells or other equivalent devices must be installed to prevent the gate from
closing on vehicular traffic.
• The speed limit for vehicular traffic through the gate area is 5 MPH. Install speed bumps and signs to keep
vehicular traffic from speeding through the gate area. Failure to adhere to posted speed limits can result in
damage to the gate, gate operator, and to the vehicle.
• Be sure that all persons who will use the gate system are familiar with the proper use of the gate and gate
operator and are familiar with the possible hazards associated with the gate system.
• Be sure that warning signs are permanently installed on both sides of the gate in an area where they are fully
visible to traffic.
• It is your responsibility to periodically check all entrapment protection devices. If any of these devices are
observed to function improperly, remove the operator from service immediately and contact your installing or
servicing dealer.
• Follow the recommended maintenance schedule.
• Do not allow children to play in the area of the operator or to play with any gate-operating device.
• To remove the gate operator from service, operate the gate to the full open position and then shut off power to
the operator at the service panel.

1.8 Installation of Warning Signs
This DoorKing Swing Gate Operator is shipped with two warning
signs. The purpose of the warning sign is to alert uninformed
persons, and to remind persons familiar with the gate system, that
a possible hazard exists so that appropriate action can be taken to
avoid the hazard or to reduce exposure to the hazard. See page 9 for
suggested mounting positions of signs.
• Permanently install the supplied warning signs in locations so
that the signs are visible by persons on both sides of the gate.
• Use appropriate hardware such as wood or sheet metal screws
(not supplied) to install the warning signs.

SECTION 2 - AC POWER TO OPERATOR(S)
Before attempting to connect any wiring to the operator, be sure that the circuit breaker in the electrical panel is in the OFF
position. Permanent wiring must be installed to the operator as required by local electrical codes. It is recommended that a
licensed electrical contractor perform this work.
Since building codes vary from city to city, we highly recommend that you check with your local building department prior
to installing any permanent wiring to be sure that all wiring to the operator (both high and low voltage) complies with local
code requirements.
THIS GATE OPERATOR MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED!!
2.1 High Voltage Wire Runs
The distance shown in the chart is measured in Feet from the operator to the power source. If power wiring is greater than the
maximum distance shown, it is recommended that a service feeder be installed. When large gauge wire is used, a separate
junction box must be installed for the operator connection. The wire table is based on stranded copper wire. The wire run
calculations are based on a power source with a 3% voltage drop on the power line, plus an additional 10% reduction in
distance to allow for other losses in the system.
This table illustrates the high voltage wire size and distance requirements.

Switches 1-2 These work in conjunction with each other and determine when the relay on the board will be activated. This relay
can be used as a switch for various functions such as illuminating a warning light when the gate is moving, or turning on a
green light when the gate is full open. This relay is NOT available for these uses if it is being used for the shadow loop function.
Switch 3 Determines that a device wired to terminal #12 is a normal full open command OR terminal #12 becomes the output
from the exit loop detector that is plugged into the EXIT Loop port in the circuit board (Used for specialized functions).
Switch 4 Turns the auto close timer on or off. Maximum time that the close timer can be set for is approximately 23 seconds.
Switch 5 This switch enables the 4502 circuit board to be used in either a swing gate or slide gate application. Some older
DoorKing slide gate operators did use the 4501 circuit board for control. This switch is here to allow use of this board on these
older products.
Switch 6 Sets up the circuit board for single button or 3-button (open-close-stop) logic (DoorKing 3-button control stations
only). Keep this switch in the ON position for single button control.

Switch 2 Must OPEN the secondary operator’s gate upon initial AC power up and open command. If the FIRST open command
begins to close the gate, turn AC power off and reverse this switch. This switch will be set the opposite of switch 1 (e.g. If
switch 1 is OFF, then switch 2 will be ON).
Switch 3 This switch is a self-test feature that checks various functions of the circuit board and is used for bench test only.
Do not run this test with the operator connected to the gate.
Switch 4 This switch applies high voltage motor power to the secondary operator motor terminal located at the top of the board
(See page 17). If a primary / secondary system is in use, this switch should be ON and the secondary motor wires connected to
the secondary operator motor terminal. For single gate applications, this switch can be turned OFF.
Switch 5 This switch sets the input at Terminal 15 to act as a normal reverse input OR to act as a shadow input. A shadow input
will only hold the gate operator in the open position once it is in the full open position. A shadow input will not reverse the
direction of the gate operator once it begins its close cycle.
Switch 6 Used in primary / secondary applications, turning this switch ON will cause the secondary operator to start 1-2
seconds before the primary operator. This allows the secondary gate to reach the full closed position before the primary gate,
which is desirable when the gates are constructed with an overlap or if a magnetic lock is used to secure the gates.
Switches 7 and 8 Spare switches, leave in the OFF position.

3.4 Automatic Open / Close Limit Adjustment
The 6050/6100’s open/close limits DO NOT have to be physically adjusted. The gate open and close positions are determined by
the physical stop “Flange” on the elbow assembly (See below). The arms MUST already be in the correct closed configuration
(See Section 1.7 on page 14). DO NOT cycle the operator until the arms are in the correct configuration. Every time the
operator is powered up, the first open command will automatically run an open and close cycle to locate and remember the
gate’s open and close positions.
Timer: The Auto-Close Timer should be turned ON (SW 1, switch 4 ON) to allow the operator to run the automatic gate
sequence, otherwise a manual close command will be required to complete this sequence.
Clutch: The clutch’s factory setting will work correctly for most installations. The clutch must NOT slip while the gate is in
mid-cycle or the gate limits will be incorrect. If the clutch slips during this period, it must be tightened before running this
sequence (See section 3.5 on the next page).
Safety Devices: Run this sequence before testing any safety features (primary inherent reverse sensor, secondary entrapment
protection, entrapment alarm and reset features).

Sequence of Automatic “Gate Cycle” to Set Gate Limits
CAUTION: Keep pedestrians and vehicles clear of the gate while this sequence is running!
After the first open command is given to the operator (gate can be in any position):
Open
Gate MUST open until it contacts the physical stop “Flange”. (if gate starts to close, turn power off and
change the direction operator opens (SW 2, switch 1). Turn power back on and give open command again).
After the gate cycles to the full OPEN position, the clutch will slip for approximately 2 seconds and shut off.
Close
Auto-close timer will close the gate until it contacts the physical stop “Flange”. (Manual close command
required if timer is turned off). When the gate cycles to the full CLOSE position, the clutch will slip for
approximately 2 seconds and shut off.
Sequence Open and close gate positions are now set and will be remembered by the 6050/6100 (until it loses AC power).
Finished Gate will function normally after automatic sequence has finished.
Cycle the operator again. Operator will reach the open and close positions and shut off without the clutch
slipping.
Note: If gate encounters an obstruction during this sequencing,
it will automatically continue after obstruction has been cleared.
6050-065-V-7-11
21
3.5 Clutch Adjustment
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable clutch (Type C) that is used as the Primary entrapment
protection system. The clutch MUST slip upon sensing an obstruction during the open or close cycle which will cause the gate
to reverse direction. For this system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions.
A good set of roller bearing hinges is essential for proper swing gate operation.
1. Be sure AC power switch is turned OFF whenever adjustments to the clutch are being made. Loosen the
upper jamb nut to “un-lock” the lower jamb nut. Loosen the lower jamb nut.
2. Manually move the gate so that it is positioned approximately half way open.
3. Tighten the lower jamb nut finger tight then tighten it ONE turn with a wrench. Re-tighten the upper jamb nut.
4. Turn AC power switch ON and momentarily jump across terminals 11 and 20. When the gate begins to open,
determine if the clutch is slipping. If the clutch is slipping, turn AC power OFF and tighten the lower jamb nut
one more turn. This process may have to be repeated several times to get the clutch adjusted correctly.
Always start the gate from the half open position when adjusting the clutch.
Clutch Note: The ideal clutch adjustment will
allow the operator to move the gate through its
open and close travel cycle without slipping,
but will slip upon contact with an obstruction
with no more than 40 Lbs of force. This force
can be measured with a gate scale, DoorKing
P/N 2600-225.
Jamb Nuts
CAUTION: Keep pedestrians and
vehicles clear of the gate while
adjusting and testing the clutch!
Test the Clutch:
Clutch
Obstruct the gate while it is in the OPENING cycle.
The clutch MUST slip with no more than 40 Lbs of
force, then the gate will reverse direction for a
quarter of a second and STOP. If the clutch does not
slip, it is too tight. Repeat step 4 and re-adjust the
clutch.
Note: After the gate has reversed and STOPPED, the
operator will be in a “Soft Shutdown”. Momentarily
jump across terminals 11 and 20 to continue the
opening cycle after the obstruction has been
cleared.
Obstruct the gate while it is in the CLOSING cycle.
The clutch MUST slip with no more than 40 Lbs of force, then the gate will REVERSE direction back to the open position.
If the clutch does not slip, it is too tight. Repeat step 4 and re-adjust the clutch.
Note: After the gate has reversed back to the open position, the operator will be in a “Soft Shutdown”. Momentarily jump
across terminals 11 and 20 to start the closing cycle again after the obstruction has been cleared.
3.6 Inherent Entrapment Protection System
In addition to the mechanical slip clutch, this operator uses an inherent entrapment protection system (Type A) to further
reduce the possibility of injury should an entrapment occur. This Secondary entrapment protection system (Revering sensor) is
completely automatic and will be activated if the clutch fails to slip when an obstruction is sensed during the open or close
cycle. This feature requires no adjustment by the installer or end user.

6050-065-V-7-11
SECTION 4 - ENTRAPMENT AND SAFETY PROTECTION
Secondary Entrapment Protection Device:
In addition to the inherent reversing sensor system, the Models 6050/6100 has terminal connections for photo sensors-Type B1
secondary entrapment protection device required by UL 325 standards. Entrapment protection devices must be installed to
reduce the risk of injury. Install these devices where the risk of entrapment or a hazard exists while the gate is moving. Specific
installations will vary.

• If other detectors are used, use a separate power
supply to power these detectors.
• Loop layout shown is for a typical swing gate
application with two-way traffic, or one-way exit
only traffic.
DoorKing offers a free “Loop and
Loop-Detectors Information
Manual” PDF located at
DoorKing’s web site for more
information. www.dkaccess.com
To help protect the operator from accidentally closing on vehicles
in the gate’s path, DoorKing highly recommends that loops and
loop detectors be installed. Loops are laid underneath, cut into
asphalt or concrete driveways or buried beneath gravel and earth
driveways. A loop detection system will sense a vehicle like a
metal detector and send a signal to the gate operator preventing
the gate from automatically opening or closing on a vehicle
when it is in the gate’s path. DoorKing recommends that a
licensed installer perform this work.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.
3. Always keep people and objects away from gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4. Test the operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid object or stop or reverse when an object
activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to
adjust and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or death.
5. Use the emergency release only when the gate is not moving and power has been shut-off.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a qualified service person make repairs to gate
hardware.
7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.

6.2 Shutdown Conditions
Under various entrapment conditions the operator will assume either a soft or hard (alarm) shutdown. To determine what
type of reset action is required, you will need to understand how the different entrapment conditions affect the gate
operator.
Soft Shutdown
This occurs in various situations where the inherent or secondary entrapment protection devices have been activated.
In a soft shutdown condition, the operator will not respond to any input that was present when the entrapment
protection device sensed an obstruction. If the gate stops at the open position, the operator will not respond to the
automatic close timer.
• Example 1 - A time clock keys the gate open in the morning and an entrapment protection device senses
an obstruction prior to the gate reaching the full open position. If the entrapment is sensed by the inherent
system, the gate will reverse and run back to the closed position. The time clock input is still present, but
the gate will not re-open.
Note: In some systems, the time clock input comes from the telephone entry system relay. This same relay may also
provide open commands for a card reader, MicroPLUS transmitters and the visitor telephone entry. If so, these devices
will also be disabled in a soft shutdown condition.
• Example 2 - If the gate is closing and an entrapment protection device is activated, the gate will either stop
or reverse and run back to the open position, depending upon if the secondary or inherent device was
activated. The automatic close timer will not close the gate.
• Example 3 - Vehicle arrives at open loop and gate runs towards the open position. The inherent entrapment
protection is activated. The gate reverses and runs back to the closed position. If the vehicle is still present
at the open loop a soft shutdown condition does not occur. The loop input provides an immediate reset of
the operator and the gate will again run to the open position.
Resetting a Soft Shutdown
In some conditions, a soft shutdown will reset as soon as the entrapment condition clears. For example, if a
non-contact sensor (photo cell) is sensing an obstruction, the operator will stop the gate and assume a soft
shutdown condition. When the photocell clears, the operator will return to normal operation.
When the operator is in a soft shutdown, activation of any "intended input" will reset the operator. An "intended
input" includes any command, any standard safety input and any loop input. Activating any of these inputs will reset
the gate. At that point the gate will return to normal operation. If the gate is open, the automatic close timer will
then time out and close the gate.
Hard Shutdown (Alarm Activated)
A hard shutdown condition occurs when the inherent entrapment protection system has sensed TWO consecutive
obstructions before the gate reaches the full open or closed position.
• Example - The gate is closing and the inherent entrapment protection system senses an obstruction and
causes the gate to reverse direction. As the gate begins to run in the open direction, a second obstruction
is sensed prior to the gate reaching the full open position. Once the second obstruction has been sensed,
the operator will stop, the audio alarm will be activated and all standard inputs are shut down (including
open commands, safety commands, loop inputs, etc.).
The audio alarm will sound for five minutes, or until the operator’s reset button is pushed. After (5) five minutes the
alarm will “chirp every 5 sec.” and the hard shutdown condition will remain in affect until the reset button is pushed.
• After 5 minutes, the audio alarm will “chirp” every 5 seconds. This indicates that the operator is in a hard
shutdown condition and the reset switch must be activated to reset the operator and silence the alarm.
Continued on next page
30
6050-065-V-7-11
Resetting a Hard Shutdown
When the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (audio alarm activated or audio alarm “chirps” every 5 seconds),
the only way to reset the gate operator and return it to normal operation is to activate the alarm reset input
(auxiliary terminals 2 and 3). An alarm-reset switch can be mounted external of the gate operator provided that it is
installed in the line of sight of the gate and gate operator.
• Before resetting a hard shutdown, determine why the shutdown occurred. Inspect the gate for any
obstructions along its path that could have activated the inherent entrapment sensing system. Inspect
the gate and gate hardware.
Note: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator above the power ON-OFF
toggle switch. Activating this button will return the gate operator to normal operation, but will not activate the gate
operator.
Once the gate has been reset, an open or close command is needed to start the gate operator. Most activating
commands will cause the gate operator to cycle to the open position. This includes activation of a key switch or
open command and activation of an open loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the closed
position.
Important Note: The gate operator will not lose its limit settings when a hard shutdown occurs.
6.3 Manual Gate Operation
This operator is equipped with a manual release system that will allow the gate to be pushed open in the event of a power
outage or equipment failure.
Never attempt to manually push open any gate with an operator attached
to it until you have verified that power to the operator has been shut-off.
Emergency Vehicle Access Conditions
The automatic vehicular gate system must be designed to allow access to emergency vehicles under different operating
conditions.
1. During normal powered operation, emergency vehicles access the gate by use of the Emergency Vehicle
Access Device installed on your gate system. The type of device that is used in your community is dependent
on your city codes. These devices may include (but are not limited to) Fire Department lock boxes, Click-2Enter radio receivers, strobe light sensors, siren sensors, etc.
Convenience Open
2. In the event of a power failure, the emergency vehicle access device may not be functional because the
gate operator is un-powered. If the gate operator is equipped with a Convenience Open System, this system
will automatically open the gate when primary (AC) power is removed. NOTE: DC convenience open systems
are optional and your gate system may or may not be equipped with one. Check with your installer to
determine if your gate system is equipped with a convenience open system.
2340-010 Circuit Board
3. In the event of a primary (AC) power failure and a back-up system (DC) power failure (low charged or
dead batteries for example), the system must have a release system to allow the gate to be Manually
Operated.
6050-065-V-7-11

FAIL-SAFE Manual Operation
The FAIL-SAFE manual operation system is the most reliable and safest method for placing an automated gate in
manual operation and is the preferred method of emergency gate operation under worse case conditions by many Fire
Chiefs and Building Inspectors and is typically used in CLASS I and CLASS II applications. This system requires no
keys, cranks or tools for manual gate operation and is completely automatic. This prevents any delays for emergency
vehicle access in the event that a power outage has occurred.
• When AC power is removed (power failure or switch power off), the operator "FAILS" in a "SAFE" condition
allowing the gate to be manually pushed open without the need of any tools, keys, cranks or other devices.
This assures emergency vehicle access under the worst-case conditions.

• For manual FAIL-SAFE gate operation, turn power to the operator OFF. If a convenience open system
is in use, be sure that DC power is turned OFF first. Once ALL power is OFF, the gate can be manually

SECTION 7 - OPTIONAL CONVENIENCE OPEN SYSTEM
The optional convenience open system installed in your vehicular gate operator is designed as a convenience enhancement only.
It is not designed or intended to provide continuous gate operation during a power outage. Its sole purpose is to provide a
method to open the vehicular gate to allow unimpeded traffic flow when the gate and access control system is without power. If
your access control system requires 100% power backup and continuous operation when primary (AC) power has failed, a
power inverter / backup system, such as DoorKing’s Model 1000 or Model 2000, is required.
• The convenience open system cannot provide continuous gate operation during a power outage.
• The gate will cycle (Manual or Automatic Mode) to the open position ONE TIME ONLY after
AC power failure.
• The convenience open system requires testing on a monthly basis to insure the batteries are fully charged and that the
system is operational.
• The convenience open system uses two 12-volt, 3.0 amp-hour gel-cell batteries. These batteries should be replaced
every two years on average, or sooner if required.
• Batteries are affected by temperature. Cold temperatures will reduce the effectiveness of the batteries. High temperatures
will result in a shortened battery life.
• Batteries are not covered under warranty.
7.1 Circuit Board 2340 Setup
Timer: MUST be adjusted so the gate stops approximately six inches from the full open position. Clockwise
increases the DC motor run time, counter-clockwise decreases the run time. Do not allow the DC motor to run long
enough to slip the operator clutch or stall the DC motor. Damage to the circuit board may result from this condition!

Devices” physically wired to the 2340 circuit board (The timer will run the
DC motor). Any control devices wired to the 4502 main terminal will NOT
function after loss of AC power.
Note: If the gate operator is controlled by a DoorKing access controller
(Models 1833, 1835, 1837 or 1838), the “Manual Mode” will NOT function
during a power outage.

SECTION 8 - MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
Inspection and service of this gate operator by a qualified technician should be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or
suspected. High cycle usage may require more frequent service checks.
8.1 Maintenance
When servicing the gate operator, always check any secondary (external) reversing devices (loops, photo eyes, etc.) for proper
operation. If external reversing devices cannot be made operable, do not place this operator in service until the malfunction can
be identified and corrected.
Always check the inherent reversing system when performing any maintenance. If the inherent reversing system cannot be
made operable, remove this operator from service until the cause of the malfunction is identified and corrected. Keeping
this operator in service when the inherent reversing system is malfunctioning creates a hazard for persons which can result
in serious injury or death should they become entrapped in the gate.
When servicing this gate operator, always turn power OFF!!
Every time the operator is powered up, the First open command will
automatically set the open and close limits of the gate. (See page 21).

8.2 Troubleshooting
Have a good VOM meter to check voltages and continuity. A Meg-Ohm meter capable of checking up to 500 meg-ohms of
resistance is necessary to properly check the integrity of the ground loops. When a malfunction occurs, isolate the problem to
one of three areas: 1) the operator, 2) the loop system, 3) the keying devices. Use caution when checking high voltage areas:
terminals 1 through 6, the motor capacitor and the motor.
1. Check the input indicator LEDs. They should only come ON when a keying device (card reader, push button, etc.) is
activated. If any of the input LEDs are ON continuously, this will cause the gate operator to hold open. Disconnect the
keying devices one at a time until the LED goes OFF.
2. Check any external secondary entrapment protection devices. Any short or malfunction in these devices can cause the
gate operator to stop or to hold open.
3. A malfunction in a loop or loop detector can cause the gate operator to hold open, or to not detect a vehicle when it is
present over the loop. The LEDs next to the loop detector ports on the operator circuit board will light only when the loop
has detected an object above it. If the LEDs stays on after the object has gone, then the loop detector has malfunctioned.
Pull the loop detector circuit boards from the loop ports on the operator circuit board. If the malfunction persists, the
problem is not with the loop system. For more information on trouble shooting loops and loop detectors, refer to your loop
detector instruction sheet and to the DoorKing Loop and Loop Detector Information Manual.
4. Check to be sure that there are no shorted or open control wires from the keying devices to the gate operator. If a keying
device fails to open the gate, momentarily jumper across terminals 11 and 20 on the gate operator circuit board. If the
gate operator starts, this indicates that a problem exist with the keying device and is not with the gate operator.
5. If a three-button control station (open-close-stop) is connected to this gate operator, check for proper wiring. Only a
DoorKing three button control station (P/N 1200-006) can be used with this gate operator. Others will cause a malfunction.
6. Check the high voltage supply. A voltage drop on the supply line (usually caused by using too small supply voltage
wires) will cause the operator to malfunction. Refer to the wire size chart in section 2.1 on page 16.
Symptom
Possible Solution(s)
Operator will not run. • Check that power to the operator is turned ON.
Power LED is OFF.
• Transformer may be overheated. Turn power off and allow board to cool for several minutes then
retest. Check for low 115 VAC power and low voltage shorts.
• Check for 115 VAC at terminals 2 and 3. If voltage measures OK, check the terminal strip or
replace the circuit board.
Operator will not run. • Momentarily jumper terminal 11 to terminal 20. If the input LED does not come ON, check the

terminal strip or replace the circuit board. If LED does come ON, proceed to next steps.
• Check Motor:
- Momentarily jumper terminal 11 to terminal 20. If the input LED does not come ON, check the
terminal strip or replace the circuit board. If LED does come ON, proceed to next steps.
- Remove circuit board. With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 3 to terminal 4 with a
14 AWG insulated jumper wire. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run.
- With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 3 to terminal 5 with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire.
CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run in the opposite direction of the above step.
- If the motor runs in both steps above, replace the control board. If the motor does not run, or runs
in only one direction, problem can be a bad motor, motor capacitor, wire connections from the
control board to the motor or a bad control board.
Secondary operator
motor will not run.
• Check that SW 1, switch 7 is OFF and SW 2, switch 4 is ON.
• Remove circuit board. Momentarily jumper terminal 3 to one of the secondary motor terminals,
then to the other secondary motor terminal with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire.
CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The secondary motor should run one way, then the other way as
power is applied to each terminal.
• If the secondary motor runs in both directions, replace the control board. If secondary motor does
not run, or runs in only one direction, problem can be in the wiring from the primary to secondary
operator, bad secondary motor or motor capacitor.

Check that the clutch is adjusted properly and is not slipping.
Disconnect the gate from the gate operator and check that the gate swings freely without any binding.
Check that SW 1, switch 7 is set correctly.
Check the PULSE LED on the circuit board. PULSE 1 should blink as the primary (or single) operator
is running. PULSE 2 should blink as the secondary operator is running. If either PULSE LED is not
blinking as the respective operator is running, check that the magnetic sensor is within 1/32 inch of
the magnetic counter ring.
• Replace the magnetic sensor.
• Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.
Gate opens but will
not close.
Gate closes but will
not open.
• Check the input LEDs. Any ON will hold the gate open and indicates a problem with a keying device.
• Check the secondary safety devices. Any activated will hold the gate open and indicates a problem
with the safety device.
• Check the loop detectors. Any activated can hold the gate open and indicates a problem with the
loop detector or ground loop.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Activate any keying device to determine if operator returns
to normal operation.
• If automatic close is desired, be sure SW 1, switch 4 is ON.
• Check motor as described on previous page.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs on terminals 11-13. If any are ON,
momentarily disconnect, then re-connect the wire going to the respective terminal. Operator should
open.
• Check to be sure that the operator is running in the proper direction. Turn power OFF, and then back
ON. Activate a keying device. Operator should run in the open direction. If operator runs in the
close direction, turn power OFF and change direction switch SW 2, switches 1 and/or 2. Go to
above section if operator now opens but will not close.
• Be sure that the respective LED on the control board lights when the keying device connected to the
respective terminal is activated. If LED does not light, momentarily place a jumper wire from
terminal 20 to the input terminal being checked. If LED lights and gate opens, problem is with the
keying device. If LED does not light, replace control board.
• Check motor as described on previous page.
Gate starts to close,
then reverses to
open.

Check that the clutch is adjusted properly and is not slipping.
Disconnect the gate from the operator and check that the gate operates freely without any binding.
Check the loop detector LEDs and input LEDs. Any that flash ON will cause the gate to reverse.
If a shadow loop is used, check for proper wiring. A mis-wired shadow loop detector will cause the
gate to reverse.
Check the PULSE LED on the circuit board. PULSE 1 should blink as the primary (or single) operator
is running. PULSE 2 should blink as the secondary operator is running. If either PULSE LED is not
blinking as the respective operator is running, check that the magnetic sensor is within 1/32 inch of
the magnetic counter ring.
Replace the magnetic sensor.
Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.
