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; [email protected]; 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 six feet (6’) 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.
2
6500-065-X-1-16
• 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 6 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.

1.7 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 7 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 Run
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 AC power wire size and distance limitations for a single operator.

• Be sure wiring is installed in accordance
with local codes. Be sure to color code all
wiring.
• It is recommended that a surge
suppressor be installed on the high
voltage power lines to help protect the
operator and circuit board from surges
and power fluctuations.
• Secondary operator in a dual operator
application gets AC power through the
8-wire interconnection cable that connects
the 2 operators together. See next page.
DO NOT cycle the operator without the OPEN and CLOSE limit sensors in their specific open and close positions.
The limit sensors or the AC power switch are the only ways to STOP the operator once an open cycle has started. This could
cause damage to the gate and/or operator if the gate opens too far!
EXTERNAL ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION DEVICES MUST be connected or the gate operator WILL NOT function.

Typical
Settings
Switch 1 Must OPEN the primary 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 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 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 Turns the auto-close timer on or off. Maximum time that the close timer can be set for is approximately 23 seconds.
Switch 5 OFF setting is Standard Reverse for a CLOSING gate. An input to terminal #6 (e.g.: photo beam gets obstructed)
AND/OR reverse loops will stop and reverse the gate back to the full open position. If the auto-close timer is ON, when gate
reaches the open position, timer will not close the gate. Another input command is needed to reset and close the gate.
ON setting allows an input to terminal #6 (e.g.: external loop detector only) to become a SHADOW loop input. It is only active
when the gate is in the fully opened position.
Switch 6 Sets up the circuit board for a single gate operator or primary / secondary (dual) gate operators.
Switches 7-8 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 DoorKing Plug-In
shadow loop function.

SW 2 (Bottom 4 Switches)
Typical
Settings
Switch 1 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 2 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 9 and 12. This applies magnetic lock power and logic to these terminals (NC).
Switch 3 MUST be turned OFF for the Model 6500.
Switch 4 MUST be turned OFF for the Model 6500.

3.3 Limit Sensors
Important Limit Sensor Adjustment Note:
The hub must not slip
during operation. Tighten
nut to stop any slipping.
CAUTION
It is very important NOT to cycle the gate operator
before the limit sensors are in the correct position or
it could cause damage to the gate and operator.
DO NOT REMOVE HUB!
ONLY turn ON AC power. Manually release the gate
operator hub with the release tool (See page 30).
Physically move the gate to the desired open
position. Loosen the set screw on the OPEN limit
sensor and slowly slide it under the magnetic sensor
activator until the OPEN limit Sensor LED lights up
on the circuit board. Tighten the set screw and
repeat this process for the close gate position.
Secure the hub with the release tool and cycle the
operator a few times and readjust if necessary.

3.4 Inherent Reverse Sensors Adjustment
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable reversing sensor (Type A) used as entrapment protection
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 4) 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.
For the reverse sensors to function correctly, THE HUB MUST NOT SLIP when the gate encounters an obstruction. 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.
For the reverse system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions and the limit
sensors must be properly adjusted BEFORE adjusting the reverse 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.
CAUTION: Keep pedestrians and vehicles clear of the gate while adjusting and testing sensors!
Note: “Push to Operate” button will use the
Auto-Close timer if turned ON (SW 1, switch 4 ON).

Make sure the gate closes completely. If it reverses and

reverse sensitivity (LED will turn off).
Cycle the gate a few times to be sure that it cycles completely in both directions,
adjusting the primary sensor as necessary.
Safety Note: The LED will
remain ON after a cycling gate

Note: If the minimum or maximum reverse sensor sensitivity adjustment is
reached and the Secondary Operator will not reverse properly, the Secondary
Operator Current Sensor’s wire turns will have to be altered.
See 3.5 Secondary Current Sensor Adjustment on the next page.
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.

3.5 Secondary Current Sensor Adjustment (Dual Gates ONLY)
The PRIMARY gate operator’s “secondary reversing sensor” uses a secondary current sensing device (Located only in the
primary operator) to detect any obstructions “physically” encountered in the SECONDARY gate path when using dual gates.
The secondary current sensor uses a sensing coil with a given number of turns through it to monitor the current flow into the
secondary operator. Each time the wire passes through the coil, it is considered a turn. The number of turns through the
sensing coil is dependant on the operating voltage of the operator and the weight of the gate. In general, light weight gates may
require additional turns of wire through the secondary current sensor, while heavier gates may require less turns. CAUTION –
HIGH VOLTAGE: Be sure power is turned OFF before changing the number of wire turns to the secondary current sensor. When
you are setting the secondary reverse sensor (section 3.4 on the previous page) and reach the MAXIMUM sensitivity position
on the reverse sensor without activating the secondary operator reversing function, add an additional turn of wire through the
secondary current sensor. If you set the secondary reverse sensor to the MINIMUM sensitivity position and the gate will not
cycle completely, reduce the number of turns through the secondary current sensor.

• Loop detector wiring is shown for DoorKing
plug-in loop detectors. If other loop detectors are
used, refer to the installation instructions supplied
with those detectors for wiring instructions.
• 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.doorking.com
4.4 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.

SECTION 5 - 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.
8. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

5.2 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 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 sensor) 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 the next page
28
6500-065-X-1-16
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 the automatic exit loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the
closed position.
5.3 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 remove the hub from the operator after manually releasing it.
This gate operator CAN NOT be manually forced open in the event of a
power failure without FIRST manually releasing the gate! (See next page)
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.
2. In the event of a primary (AC) power failure, the system must have a release system to allow the gate to
be Manually Operated (See next page).

SECTION 6 - 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.
6.1 Maintenance
When servicing the gate operator, always check any 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!!
If gearbox requires oil, use only Mobil SYNTHETIC SHC-629 Oil. Do not completely fill gearbox with oil. Gearbox should
be half full only. Do not exceed this level.

Maintenance
Alarm
Activate the primary (inherent) reverse system by blocking the
gate with a solid object. When the gate reverses, block the gate
in the opposite direction prior to the limit being reached. The
entrapment alarm should activate. Press the reset button to
silence the alarm.
Arms
Check set screws and nuts. Check bushings for wear.
Drive Belt

6.2 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 17 through 20, 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 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 5) 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 2.1 page 15.
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 19 and 20. If voltage measures OK, check the terminal strip or
replace the circuit board.
Operator will not run. • Push test button or momentarily jumper terminal 1 to terminal 2 (or 1 to 5). 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:
Remove circuit board. With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 19 to terminal 18 with a
14 AWG insulated jumper wire. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run.
• With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 19 to terminal 17 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 6 is ON.
• Remove circuit board. Momentarily jumper terminal 19 to the primary/secondary connection
terminal block terminal 1, then to terminal 2 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.

and reverses.
• Check the reversing sensitivity.
• Disconnect gate from the gate operator and check that the gate swings freely without any binding.
• Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.
Gate opens but will

• 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.
Gate closes but will
not open.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs. 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-1, 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 1 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.

Check that the reverse sensitivity is properly adjusted.
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.
• Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.
Gate closes and then • Check for any input or loop detector LEDs that are ON.

6.3 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 tone 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 plug is properly inserted into P2.
Constant tone is heard: This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition. The tone will continue to sound for
five minutes, and then will beep 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 tone 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 tones are heard: This indicates that there may be a fault with the current
sensor circuit. Check that the black current sensor wire has been passed through the hole in the current sensor donut with the
correct number of loops (1/2 HP motor - 2 loops, 1 HP motor - 1 loop).
