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.
6
9024-065-F-10-14
• 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.

1.10 Installation of Warning Signs
This DoorKing Slide 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 5 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.

1.11 Concerns BEFORE Solar Panel Installation
Correct positioning of the solar panel will determine the efficiency of the system. In general, the panel should be facing TRUE
SOUTH at a specific TILT ANGLE towards the sun using the information provided on the next page to achieve the highest
efficiency. Some re-adjustment of the panel might be necessary to over time to “Fine Tune” the systems efficiency. The solar
panel should be installed as close as possible to the operator in an area free and clear of ALL obstructions and shadows during
the ENTIRE day. Generally, If the solar panel does NOT cast a shadow by the sun, the batteries are NOT being charged.
• Trees / Buildings that do not block the solar panel from direct sunlight in the summer, could block the panel during
the winter. The sun’s path across the sky is lower during the winter than in the summer. The shadows that do not obstruct
the solar panel during the summer months, will cast longer shadows in the winter, which could block the panel then.
• Wind can exert extreme pressure on the solar panel and support post. Make sure they are securely fastened.
• Dust can accumulate on the panel over time. Cleaning the panel every so often is necessary to keep the system operating at its highest efficiency.
• Snow may cover the panel during the winter. You may want to re-adjust the panel to a steeper angle to allow the snow to
slide off. Even then, the panel may still accumulate snow and need to be manually cleaned off when necessary to keep the
system functioning.
Mounting
Recommendations
The solar panel will perform MOST
efficient when installed as close as
possible to the operator (Within a couple
of feet). Installation can be a maximum of
100 ft away from the operator if necessary
using a minimum 18 gauge wire run.
Keep in mind, the efficiency of the solar
panel will diminish the farther away the
panel is installed from the operator.

These charts should be used only for estimates. Solar systems can vary from this information. These maps do not take into
account small climate changes and may not be 100% accurate for all locations.
Solar Panel MUST Point “TRUE SOUTH”
It is important for proper system operation that the solar panel is oriented to TRUE SOUTH. The directions of magnetic South and TRUE South differ from one
another depending on geographic location. The map below shows the difference between magnetic south and TRUE south for your area.

General Solar Panel “Tilt Angle”
It is simplest to mount the solar panel at a fixed tilt angle and leave it (Shown on chart below). To capture more energy from the sun,
you can adjust the tilt angle of the solar panel twice a year (At the beginning of summer and winter). Add approximately 6° in the
summer and subtract approximately 6° in the winter from your “general” tilt angle on this chart. Your tilt angle may vary from this.

SECTION 2 - SOLAR INPUT POWER TO OPERATOR(S)
Before connecting the solar panel wire to the operator, make sure that the solar panel is blocked from the sunlight. The solar
panel is “HOT” (discharging power) whenever the sun is shinning on it. It will shock you if you attempt to touch the wires
while it is in the sunlight!
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.

SECTION 3 - AC INPUT 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!!
3.1 AC Power Wire Runs and Terminal Connection
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. Wire run calculations are based on an AC 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 AC power wire size and distance limitations.
Never run low voltage rated wire insulation in the
same conduit as high voltage rated wire insulation.

SW 1 (Top 8 Switches)
Typical
Settings
Switch 1 Must OPEN the 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.
Switch 2 Turns the auto-close timer on or off. Maximum time that the close timer can be set for is approximately 23 seconds.
Switch 3 Determines that a device wired to terminal #4 is a normal full open command OR terminal #4 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 Determines if an input to terminal #10 (Photo Sensors) AND/OR reverse loops will reverse OR stop a CLOSING gate.
A tailgating vehicle can activate terminal #10 (Photo sensors) and/or reverse loops while the gate is in the closing cycle from
the previous vehicle’s authorized entry:
If switch 4 is turned OFF (Reverse), the closing gate that gets activated by a tailgating vehicle will reverse back to the open
position, possibly allowing the tailgating vehicle unauthorized entry while the gate is reversing back to the open position.
If switch 4 is turned ON (Stop), the closing gate that gets activated by a tailgating vehicle will stop, partially or completely
blocking the pathway, NOT allowing the tailgating vehicle to enter without proper authorization. The gate will not move until all
sensors are clear, usually forcing the tailgating vehicle that activated the sensors to back away from the gate. The gate will then
continue until closed, helping prevent the tailgating vehicle from unauthorized entry.
Switch 5 Turning the quick-close feature on will cause the auto close timer to close the gate after 1 second, regardless of the
setting of the auto close timer potentiometer. This will also cause an opening gate to stop and reverse when the reverse loops
and/or photo sensors are cleared after vehicle passes by them.
Switches 6-7 These work in conjunction with each other and determine when the relay on the board (terminals 13-14) 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.
Switch 8 If a magnetic lock is not used with the gate operator, leave this switch in the OFF position. Turn this switch ON if a
magnetic lock is used and connected to terminals 11 and 12. This applies magnetic lock power and logic to these terminals
(NC).

Settings
Switches 1-2 Sets the type operator that will be used with the circuit board.
Switch 3 Allows gate operator to fully open gate and shut down (ON) during a AC power failure OR continue to operate
normally using ONLY battery power (OFF) until batteries are drained. Then gate operator will fully open gate and shut down.
Switch 4 MUST be turned OFF for the Model 9024. Terminal #10 is a reverse input. Do not turn ON.
Switch 5 When the gate overlap is OFF, the gate operator(s) will start the open and close cycles at the same time. This is the
normal setting for a single gate operator. Turning the gate overlap ON when using dual gate operators will cause the secondary
operator to start the open cycle 1.5 seconds before the primary operator. The primary operator will start the close cycle 1.5
seconds before the secondary operator.
Switch 6 Turn OFF when using 115/230V input power. Turn ON when using a solar panel as input power for the gate operator.
Switches 7-8 MUST be turned OFF for the Model 9024.

Note: Limit/Alarm Plug P3 MUST be connected to the
circuit board or operator will NOT function.
Partial Open Feature
This feature allows long gates to partially open when a fully open gate is not required for normal use. The FULL open limit
switch MUST first be set before adjusting the partial open gate position. When the operator’s inherent reversing sensor gets
activated during the gate’s closing cycle, it will always reverse the gate to the FULL OPEN limit switch setting, even when the
partial open feature is being used. When using the “Partial Open” feature, the operator’s opening
device MUST be connected to the main terminal #8 .
See page 35 for opening device wiring information.
AFTER the full open limit has been set, attach the
Magnet Clip to the “Open” limit nut and align it with
the partial open sensor (See below). DO NOT re-adjust
the limit nut. Use the partial open assembly for adjustment only.

4.4 Inherent Reverse Sensor Adjustment
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable reversing sensor (Type A) used as the primary entrapment
protection system according to UL 325 standards. The gate will reverse direction after “physically” encountering an
obstruction in either the opening or closing gate cycle.
If the Auto-Close Timer (DIP-switch SW 1, switch 2) is ON and the gate physically encounters an obstruction during the
CLOSING cycle, it will reverse to the open position and HOLD the gate at this position (Soft shutdown condition). Another input
command is needed before the gate will reset and close again.
If the Partial Open Feature is being used and the gate physically encounters an obstruction during the CLOSING cycle, the gate
will reverse to the FULL open limit switch setting and NOT the partial open setting.
For the reverse system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions and the limit
switches must be properly adjusted before adjusting these sensors. The ideal adjustment will allow the operator to move the
gate through its entire travel cycle without reversing, but will reverse upon contact with an obstruction with no more than 40
Lbs of force. This force can be measured with a gate scale, P/N 2600-225.
CAUTION: Keep pedestrians and vehicles clear of the gate while adjusting and testing sensors!
Note: “Push to Operate” button will use

Cycle the gate a few times to be sure that it cycles completely in both directions,
adjusting the sensor as necessary.
Safety Note: The LED will
remain ON after a cycling gate
gets obstructed during normal
operation to indicate that the
reverse sensor has been tripped.
Always check the gate area for
possible obstructions before
putting operator back in service.
Dual Operators:
Each gate operator’s reverse sensor will have to be adjusted when dual operators
have been installed.
Test the operator reversing sensitivity:
Place an immobile object along the gate path, allowing the gate to strike it while in the open and close cycles. The gate must
reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not, increase the reverse sensitivity and repeat this testing until the correct
sensitivity has been achieved in BOTH directions. The operator will assume a soft shutdown (Hold the auto-close timer) after
striking and reversing the gate which will require pressing the “Push to Operate” button to cycle the operator again.

SECTION 5 - ENTRAPMENT AND SAFETY PROTECTION
Secondary Entrapment Protection Devices:
In addition to the inherent reversing sensor system, the Model 9024 has a UL 325 terminal for the connection of photo sensors-Type B1 and
reversing edges-Type B2 secondary entrapment protection devices 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 obstruction exists while the gate is moving.
The Model 9024 offers numerous options to meet your specific needs. The next 2 pages show wiring and typical positioning of the entrapment
protection devices but specific installations will vary.
Note: Secondary entrapment protection devices will open the gate to the “Partial Open” setting when the opening device is connected to main
terminal #8 (See pages 34 and 35 for opening device wiring information).

5.3 Loop Detector Wiring
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.
DoorKing offers a free “Loop and Loop-Detectors
Information Manual” PDF located at DoorKing’s
web site for more information. www.doorking.com
Reverse Loops
Reverse loops are placed on each side of the gate to
prevent the gate from closing on a vehicle in the gate’s
path. They will stop or reverse the cycling of the gate
while a vehicle is in or near the gate’s pathway.

SECTION 7 - OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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.

9024-065-F-10-14
7.2 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 (NO Alarm will Sound)
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 exit loop and gate runs towards the open position. If the inherent entrapment protection
gets activated during this opening cycle, the gate reverses and runs back to the closed position. After the inherent
entrapment protection is cleared, If the vehicle is still present at the exit loop, a soft shutdown condition does not
occur. The exit 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
(photocell) 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: (1.) The inherent entrapment protection system (Type A) gets activated TWO
consecutive times before the gate completes the open or close cycle. (2.) The reversing edge (Type B2) gets activated
and reverses but before the gate completes the reverse cycle the inherent entrapment protection system (Type A) gets
activated.
• Example of a Hard Shutdown - 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
sound and all standard inputs are shut down (including open commands, safety commands, loop inputs, etc.).
– To silence the alarm, press the reset button or after 5 minutes, the audio alarm will shut off but will “chirp” every 5
seconds. This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (The reset button must be pressed to reset the
operator and stop the alarm “chirping”).
Resetting a Hard Shutdown
The operator is in a hard shutdown condition when the audio alarm is sounding OR “chirping” every 5 seconds.
• 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.
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.
Once the operator 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 automatic exit loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the closed position.
Note: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator (See previous page for reset button location).
Activating this button will return the gate operator to normal operation, but will not cycle the gate operator. A remote alarm/reset station
(P/N 1404-080) can be mounted external of the gate operator provided that it is installed in the line-of-sight of the gate and gate operator.

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, photocells, 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!! If gearbox requires oil, use only Mobil SHC-629 Synthetic Gear Oil. Do not
completely fill gearbox with oil. Gearbox should be half full only. Do not exceed this level.

8.2 Built-in Diagnostics
This gate operator is designed with built-in diagnostics that will alert you to potential or existing problems that the microprocessor has detected. Specific fault conditions are checked and the operator will signal that a fault exist through the built-in alarm.
Constant alarm is heard when power is applied: This indicates that the limit switch wire harness is not connected to the circuit
board. In this condition, the operator will not run and the tone will continue until the fault is corrected. Check to be sure that
the limit switch plugs are properly inserted into P2 and P8.
Constant alarm is heard: This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition. The alarm will continue to sound for
five minutes, and then will “chirp” once every five seconds. The operator-reset button must be pressed or power must be
removed and then reapplied to return the operator to normal operation.
Short “alarm chirp” is heard every five seconds: This indicates that the operator has been in a hard shutdown condition in
excess of five minutes. This will continue until the operator-reset button is pressed or until power is removed from the operator.
Operator runs for 1 second and stops, two short “alarm chirps” are heard: This indicates that there may be a fault with the
primary current sensor circuit. Check that the black current sensor wire has been passed through the hole in the primary
current sensor donut on the circuit board with the correct number of loops (1/2 HP motor - 2 loops, 1 HP motor - 1 loop).

8.3 Troubleshooting
Have a good VOM meter with Min/ Max test button 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.
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 1 and 2 (or 1 and 6) 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. 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 3.1 page 23.

• Check Motor: Gate must be half way open before testing motor.
1. Turn AC power OFF and remove plug P2 from circuit board. On the P2 terminal, connect
terminal 1 to terminal 5 and terminal 2 to terminal 6. Turn AC power ON – CAUTION – HIGH
VOLTAGE. The motor should run, turn power OFF.
2. With AC power still OFF. Connect terminal 1 to terminal 6, and terminal 2 to terminal 5.
Turn AC power ON – CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run in the opposite direction
as terminal 1 to terminal 5 and terminal 2 to terminal 6, turn power OFF.
3. If the motor does not run, or runs in only one direction, problem can be a bad motor, wire
connections from the control board to the motor or a bad control board. If the motor runs in
both steps above, contunue troubleshooting control board and accessories.
