PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!

Thank you for purchasing a

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator.

When correctly installed and properly used, your

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

will give you many years of reliable service.

Please read the following information to ensure you have the correct system for your particular needs. Furthermore, this manual a will enable you to properly install your

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator.

The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

is designed for installation on a

pull-to-open single leaf gate

(gates that open

into

the property). By purchasing an

accessory bracket (FM148)

, the

GTO/PRO® SW-1500

Automatic Gate Operator

can accommodate a

push-to-open single leaf gate (

gates that open

out

from the property).

The gate must not exceed 8 feet and 550 pounds or exceed 16 feet and 150 pounds (please see

Technical Specifications

on page 10). The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron gates. Use on solid (wood) gates is not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind. If the wind is strong enough, the operator will obstruct and stop.

The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons, automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed

GTO/PRO® Accessory Catalog

) are available at most stores. Your store should be able to special order any accessory not in stock. If your store cannot special order accessories, please call the GTO/PRO Sales Department

(800-543-GATE).

The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

features

adjustable obstruction sensing.

This safety feature makes the gate stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction.

MIN

is the factory setting; meaning the gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.

The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

also has an

adjustable auto-close feature

. After the gate reaches the fully open position, it can be set to remain open up to 120 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button at any time after the gate opens fully will cause it to close immediately.

OFF

is the factory setting; meaning the gate will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again.

PLEASE NOTE—

If your application requires any of the following:

Slide gates;

Heavy duty or commercial uses; please call GTO at

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential hazards associated with improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate operator systems.

Keep in mind that the gate operator is just one component of the total gate operating system

. Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with convenience, security, and safety.

This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the consumer. Because there are many possible applications of the gate operator, the safety precautions and warnings contained in this manual cannot be completely exhaustive in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the safe design, installation, and use of this product.

CAREFULLY READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION

INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE THE SAFE SYSTEM DESIGN, INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.

Precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this warning symbol. The symbol identifies conditions that can result in damage to the operator or its components, serious injury, or death.

Because GTO automatic gate operators are

only part

of the total gate operating system, it is the responsibility of the consumer to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended use.

To Manually Open and Close the

Gate, Follow the Procedure Below:

CAUTION: The gate will move freely and uncontrolled when the gate operator is removed from the gate. ONLY disconnect the operator when the operator power switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.

READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

Failure to meet the requirements set forth in the instruction manual could cause severe injury and/or death, for which the manufacturer cannot be held responsible.

When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed far enough from the road to prevent traffic congestion.

The gate must be installed in a location that provides adequate clearance between it and adjacent structures when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates

must not

open into public access areas.

The gate and gate operator installation

must comply with any applicable local codes

.

I. Before Installation

1.

Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use and the proper class rating.

2.

Make sure the gate has been properly installed and swings freely in both directions. Repair or replace all worn or damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate and will enhance the performance of the operator and safety devices used with the system.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to disconnect the operator for manual gate operation (

see page 1

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Secondary Means of Protection Against

Entrapment

As specified by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate operators shall have an inherent entrapment sensing system, and shall have

provisions for

,

or be supplied with

, at least one independent secondary means to protect against entrapment. The GTO/PRO® Automatic Gate Operator utilizes

Type A

, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment sensing system as the

primary

type of entrapment protection. Also, the GTO/PRO® has

provisions for

the connection of

Type B2

protection to be used as the

secondary

type of entrapment protection, if desired.

1. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (e.g., safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (51.8.4 [i]):

A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and

outside of a vehicular swing gate system.

B. A hard wired 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.

C. 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 obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall

function under the intended end-use conditions.

Leading Edge Contact Sensor on both sides of the gate

Bottom Edge Contact Sensor on both sides of the gate

Post Edge Contact Sensor on both sides of the gate

ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 30A.1.1A)

The

GTO/PRO® SW-1500 Automatic Gate Operator

is designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds when the gate comes in contact with an obstruction. Additionally, these operators are equipped with an

audio entrapment alarm

which will activate if the unit obstructs

twice

while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for a period of

5 minutes, or until the operator receives an intended signal from a hardwired entry/exit source (e.g. push button control or keypad) and the gate returns to a fully open or fully closed position. Turning the power switch on the control box OFF and back ON will also deactivate the alarm. Wireless controls such as transmitters and wireless keypads will not deactivate the alarm.

Installation Overview

Pull-to-Open Gates (Gate Opens into the Property)

The diagram shown below is an example of a pull-to-open installation on a chain link fence and single gate. Mounting the operator on a masonry column requires special procedures;

see

Column Installation Information

on page 36

if you intend to mount the operator on a column. Furthermore, if you have a push-to-open gate, you will need to purchase a

push-to-open bracket (FM148)

(see

Accessory Catalog

) to properly configure your system. See

Push to Open Installation

on page 30

before proceeding.

Preparation of the Gate

Step 1

The gate

must

be plumb, level, and swing freely on its hinges. Wheels must not be attached to the gate. The gate must move throughout its arc

without binding or dragging on the ground

.

Note that gates over 250 lb.

should have ball bearing hinges with grease fittings.

Step 2

The fence post must be secured in the ground with concrete so it will minimize twist or flex when the operator is activated. We recommend you position the operator near the

centerline

of the gate to keep the gate from twisting and flexing. The addition of a

horizontal or vertical cross member

(if one is not already in place) to provide a stable area for mounting the gate bracket is also important.

11

Horizontal Cross Member

Vertical Cross Member

Installation of Mounting Hardware

The position of the post bracket determines the leverage and efficiency of the operator. The post bracket position also sets the clearance between the operator and gate in the open and closed positions (minimum 2 inches for safety reasons).

The curved design of the post bracket works well for installations on round and square fence posts. Because the post bracket carries the entire thrust of the active operator,

bolts that completely penetrate the fence post must be used

.

On wooden posts, place a metal plate or washer

(

not supplied

) between the nuts and the fence post to prevent the thrust of the operator from pulling the bolts and washers out of the wood.

NOTE:

A fence post smaller than 6" in diameter or 6" square should be made of metal instead of wood so that it will remain stable while the operator is moving the gate.

With the gate in the open position (up to 110º from its closed position), and the operator fully retracted, adjust the post bracket assembly and gate bracket until the operator is level. While holding the operator level, use C-clamps to

temporarily

keep the post bracket assembly and gate bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.

IMPORTANT

:

While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly, be sure that the position allows for minimum 2 inches of clearance between the gate and the operator in both the open and closed positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the operator the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.

Step 6

When you feel that you have the best position for the post pivot bracket in the open position, insert the 5/16" x 1-3/4" bolt through the aligned holes of the post bracket and post pivot bracket to hold it in place. Remove the clevis pin from the front mount and while supporting the gate operator, swing the gate and gate operator to the closed position. With the gate and gate operator in the closed position check the clearance and be sure that the gate operator is not binding at the post pivot bracket.

If you don't have 2 inches of clearance or the gate operator is binding on the post pivot bracket, remove the 5/16" x 1-3/4" bolt and readjust the pivot bracket until you can achieve these important clearances.

With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement, reattach the operator to the gate bracket in the open position and recheck the gate operator level and make sure the brackets are clamped securely.

TIP:

Turning the pivot bracket over gives more hole alignment options for the post pivot bracket assembly. You can also move the entire post pivot bracket assembly to different positions on the gate post to help achieve the proper clearances.

Powering the System

IMPORTANT:

• The

GTO/PRO SW 1500

is designed and intended for use with a 12 Volt automotive or marine type battery. The battery must be placed inside a weatherproof case and located within 6 feet of the operator arm. The 10 foot harness supplied connects the battery to the operator arm.

• The battery charge is maintained by the 18 Volt transformer included

or

by using optional solar panel(s).

The transformer

or

solar panel is connected to the operator arm control board using low voltage, 16 gauge, dual conductor, multi-stranded, direct burial wire (FM509) (

see page 20 and the Accessory Catalog

).

• All low voltage wire used with the

GTO/PRO SW 1500

must be 16 gauge dual conductor, multi-stranded, direct burial wire (

see page 20

and the

Accessory Catalog

).

Do not run more than 1000 feet of wire.

• The transformer is designed and intended for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged only into an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover or housing (available at local electrical supply stores)

must

be used.

• If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an ac power source, you will need to use at least one 5 watt Solar

Panel to charge the battery (see

Accessory Catalog

).

Refer to the

Solar Panels and Gate Activity

chart below.

NEVER USE TRANSFORMER AND SOLAR PANEL(S) AT THE SAME TIME

– it willl damage the control board –

Connecting the Transformer

IMPORTANT:

Never connect the transformer and a solar panel to the operator control board at the same time. It will damage the control board.

If you are using SOLAR PANEL(S) to charge the operator battery, skip this section and go to "Connecting Solar Panel(s)" section on page 22.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LOW VOLTAGE WIRE

The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge multi-stranded, low voltage, PVC sheathed wire. This particular gauge enables the transformer to provide an adequate charge through the control board to the battery at distances up to 1000 ft.

DO NOT

use telephone wire or solid core wire. Unlike multi-stranded wire, these types of wire are inadequate for use with your gate operator system. Telephone wire and solid core wire do not deliver enough voltage for your gate operator to function and will cause the system to go into a condition known as "low voltage lockout."

NEVER

splice wires together. Splicing permits corrosion and seriously degrades the wire's ability to carry an adequate current.

Step 5

Select the 120 Volt electrical outlet into which you will plug the transformer. Lay the low voltage wire in a trench following a path from the selected electrical outlet to the control box. Wires coming up from the ground should be run through PVC conduit to protect them from lawn mowers, weed eaters, and grazing animals. Be sure to bury the wire laid in the trench.

Step 6

Bring enough wire up through the

PVC conduit to allow for gate movement from open to closed position. See example right.

Installing the Receiver

Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver

before permanently mounting it

.

Consider the following when mounting the receiver:

• Standard receiver cable length is 10 feet (receivers with a longer cable are available as special order items;

call the GTO Sales Department

). NEVER splice receiver cable!

Run the cable through PVC conduit to protect it from damage.

• DO NOT run cable through metal conduit because the receiver signal range will be decreased.

• DO NOT coil excess cable or store it in the control box.

• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing ac wiring.

• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography, and external interference.

NOTE: Do not mount upside down.

FCC Regulation

Free Entry/Exit Loop

A Free Entry/Exit Loop is a in ground wire loop that senses a vehicle as it drives over it and opens the gate. It can be placed in the driveway outside the gate to allow FREE Entry to the property and it can be placed in the driveway inside the gate to allow FREE Exit from the property.

Depending on how you want your gate to function you can use just one or all types on the same gate.

Make sure the power switch to the operator is turned OFF before connecting loop wiring to the

GTO/PRO SW-1500

terminal blocks.

The LOOP Controller must be placed in a weather proof housing separate from the operator arm.

Use 16 gauge multi-stranded low voltage wire to connect the LOOP Controller to the GTO/PRO SW 1500 control board.

Connect a wire from the V+ terminal on the LOOP Controller to the AUX OUT (+) terminal on the GTO/PRO

SW 1500 control board. Connect a wire Connect a wire from the NO (Normally Open) terminal on the LOOP controller to the EXIT terminal on the GTO/PRO SW-1500 control board. Connect wires from the V– and COM terminals on the LOOP controller to the COMMON terminal on the GTO/PRO SW 1500 control board. The twisted pairs of wires from the ground loop are then connected to the LOOP terminals on the LOOP Controller.

FINAL STEP

When everything has been connected to the operator...

replace the control board access cover. If you were working with the operator with the control board access facing up, remove the operator arm from both mounts and remount it in the upright position (control board cover facing down). Failure to remount operator in the upright position will allow water to enter the operator and cause damage to the operator control board.

Push to Open Installation

Determining The Mounting Position of The Post Bracket Assembly

Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!

A "Push-to-Open" gate opens

out

from the property.

A Push-to-Open Bracket is required for this type of installation

(

see

Accessory Catalog

). If you have a pull-to-open gate (gate opens

into

the property), return to page 13; step 3.

In a PUSH-TO-OPEN installation the operator is installed while the gate is in the

closed

position.

Step 1

With the gate

closed

, adjust the post bracket assembly and the gate bracket until the operator is level. While holding the operator level, use C-clamps to temporarily keep the post bracket assembly and gate bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.

IMPORTANT:

While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly be sure that the position allows for maximum clearance between the gate and the operator in both the open and closed positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the operator the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.

Setting the Open Position Limit

Step 1

Confirm that the power switch is in the ON position, and the gate is in the CLOSED POSITION.

Step 2

Activate your operator by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gate should now be moving from the closed position toward the open position. Prepare to STOP gate by pressing the entry transmitter button again when the gate reaches the desired open position. This step may be repeated until desired open position is achieved. Once the desired OPEN position has been achieved, proceed to Step 3.

33

Step 3

With the gate in the desired open position PRESS & HOLD the “SET LIMIT" button on the control board for 5 seconds.

Step 4

Press the transmitter button and allow the gate to return to the closed position.

YOUR GATE’S OPEN POSITION LIMIT IS NOW PROGRAMMED.

TESTING YOUR OPEN LIMIT SETTING:

Press your entry transmitter and allow your gate to open. If the OPEN position is not correct or need to be changed, you will need to CLEAR your OPEN

LIMIT settings and follow steps one (1) to four (4) again.

CLEARING PROGRAMMED OPEN LIMIT SETTING:

If you make a mistake and set the limit at the wrong position – press your transmitter to return the gate to the closed position, then press and hold the

"SET LIMIT" button for 5 seconds. This will clear the memory for the open limit position. Follow steps one (1) to four (4) again.

Maintenance & Troubleshooting Guide

If your gate operartor does not function properly after it is installed, use this guide before calling the GTO Service Department.

On all gates weighing 250 lb. or more, routinely grease the ball bearing hinges at least 4 times a year; more

frequently if the gates are in a coastal area.

Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and apply silicone spray to it at least once a month.

While oxidation is a normal part of weathering of equipment that is exposed to the elements, we recommend

you apply silicone spray the front and rear mounts to minimize this effect.

Column Installation Information

I

F THIS OPERATOR WILL BE USED WITH GATES THAT ARE MOUNTED ON

MASONRY, BRICK, OR ROCK (etc.) COLUMNS:

READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

A.

B.

C.

The simplest solution is to install the operator in a push-to-open configuration (requires Push-To-Open Bracket, see Accessory Catalog). The minimum clearance is easier to achieve and clearance is no longer a problem, since the operator will be pushing the gate away from the column instead of pulling it toward the column. It is recommended that you place a steel plate between the operator mounting brackets and masonry surface for additional strength.

If a push-to-open installation is impossible due to traffic hazards, terrain, etc., another option is to re-hang the gate. You may hang it on a post, either in the center of the column or at the back corner, or move the gate to the back corner of the columns.

The most difficult solution is to cut a notch in the column to accommodate the operator and power cable. This job is

NOT

for the inexperienced!
