IMPORTANT NOTICES
Vehicular gate systems provide convenience to their users and limit vehicular traffic onto your
property. These systems can produce high levels of force; therefore it is important that you are aware
of possible hazards associated with your gate operating system. These hazards may include pinch
points, entrapment, absence of controlled pedestrian access or traffic backup.
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.
•
Loops and loop detectors must be installed with this gate operator 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 residents are familiar with the proper use of the gate and gate operator. Be
sure that all residents are familiar with the possible hazards associated with the gate system.
•
Be sure that all 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 reversing 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.
•
Be sure that all activating 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 activating device. If activating devices are installed in violation of these
restrictions, immediately remove the gate operator from service and contact your installing
dealer.

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. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a
qualified service person make repairs to gate hardware.
6. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.
7. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Gate Construction
Vehicular gates should be constructed and installed in accordance with ASTM F2200-02; 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.
v
RESTRICTIONS AND WARNINGS
Install The Gate Operator Only If:
The operator is appropriate for the usage Class of the application and the gate is within the
weight and length limitations specified for the operator.
•
All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to
a minimum of 4 feet (1.2 m) above the ground to prevent a 2 ¼ inch (57.15 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.
•
All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded.
•
This operator is intended for installation only on slide gates used to control vehicular traffic.
Pedestrians must be provided with a separate access opening.
•
The gate must be installed in a location so that sufficient clearance is provided between the
gate and adjacent structures when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment (see
diagram). Sliding 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 to compensate for a damaged
gate.
•
Controls must be far enough from the gate so that the user is prevented from coming in
contact with the gate while operating the controls. Outdoor or easily accessible controls
should have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.
•
All warning signs and placards must be installed where visible in the area of the gate.
All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the
bottom of the gate to a minimum of four (4) feet (1.2 m) above the
ground to prevent a 2 1/4 inch (57.15 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. (ref. UL325

ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent (Type A) entrapment sensing system. This
system will sense an obstruction in both the opening and closing gate cycles, and will cause the gate
to reverse direction should an obstruction be encountered. If the system detects a second obstruction
before reaching the full open or close limit after the initial reversal, an alarm will activate and the
operator will require a reset before resuming normal operation. See Section 4 for more information.
EXTERNAL ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION
Non-contact and/or contact sensors must be installed individually or in combination with each other to
provide external entrapment protection. For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor:
•
See diagram below for placement of non-contact sensors.
•
Care should be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips
the sensor while the gate is still moving, and
•
One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or
obstruction exists, such as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
Open beam protects area
between the gate and
adjacent fence during the
open cycle.
Fence
Gate
Entrapment area exist between the gate
and the adjacent fence when the gate is in

Close beam prevents gate
from hitting obstructions
during the close cycle.
For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor:
•
A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and it’s wiring arranged so that the
communication between the sensor and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical
damage.
•
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.

1.3 MOUNTING OPTIONS
Pad mounting can be used when the operator will be installed using either the front or rear mounting
position. If the operator is to be center mounted, the post mounting method must be used.
1.3.1 PAD MOUNTED OPERATORS
Minimum 1"
clearance between
gate and back of
operator.
1. Construct a form for the mounting pad
according to the specifications shown in
figure 6. Be sure to level the top edge of
the form and that the top of the form is a
minimum of four (4) inches above ground
level. We suggest that you contact the
local building department to determine
the required depth of the pad since soil
conditions and code requirements vary
from city to city.
2. Set conduits, reinforcing bars and/or wire
mesh if required. The number of conduits
is determined by the application
requirements. We suggest using a
minimum of four (4) conduits. 1-High
voltage power lines; 2-Low voltage
control lines; 3-Loop lead-in wires (open
loop); 4-Loop lead-in wires (reverse
loops). See SECTION 2. Set additional
conduits as required for your application.
NOTE: If conduits are not set in the pad,
they can be routed to a J box where
connections to the operator can be made
after it is installed. There are three (3) ½inch knockouts and one (1) ¾-inch
knockout on each side of the operator for
this purpose.
3. Mix the concrete according to the
manufacturers instructions. Pour the
mixture into the form and tamp. Level
and finish the surface after pouring is
complete. Do not set anchor bolts in the
concrete. Sleeve anchors should be
used to secure the operator to the pad.
This allows greater flexibility in
positioning the operator on the pad.
4. Allow the pad to cure for 48 hours before
removing the forms or mounting the
operator.

2. After the posts have been welded to
the base plate to form the mounting plate assembly, construct a form for the assembly
according to the specifications in figure 8.
3. Position the mounting plate assembly into the form. Be sure that the base plate is a
minimum of four (4) inches above ground level. Set conduits, reinforcing bars and/or wire
mesh if required. The number of conduits is determined by the application requirements.
We suggest using a minimum of four (4) conduits. 1-High voltage power lines; 2-Low
voltage control lines; 3-Loop lead-in wires (open loop); 4-Loop lead-in wires (reverse
loops). See SECTION 2. Set additional conduits as required for your application.
NOTE: If conduits are not set in the pad, they can be routed to a J box where
connections to the operator can be made after it is installed. There are three (3) ½-inch
knockouts and one (1) ¾-inch knockout on each side of the operator for this purpose.
IMPORTANT!! Be sure that the mounting plate is level and parallel with the gate.
4. Secure the mounting plate assembly in the form. Mix the concrete according to the

1. Install an endless idler assembly (p/n
2600-818) at each end of the gate
opening (figure 21). Note that the gate
travels between the fence and the chain
in this type of installation. IMPORTANT!!
Be sure that the idler post/mount
assembly is secure.
2. Secure the chain brackets to the gate as
shown in figure 19. The chain brackets
should be attached to the gate frame so
that they are approximately one (1) inch
apart.
3. Route the chain through the gate
operator: under the chain guide idlers
and over the drive sprocket (Figure 21),
and then around the two idler
assemblies.
4. Attach the chain to the chain bolts using
the master links supplied, and then
attach the chain bolts to the chain
brackets using the hardware supplied
(figure 19). Make any adjustments to the
chain length at this time.
5. Adjust the chain bolts to tighten the
chain. The chain should sag no more
than one (1) inch per 10 feet of travel. Do
not
over
tighten
the
chain.
IMPORTANT!! Be sure that the chain
is parallel to the gate (figure 20).
Installing the chain in any other
manner will cause excessive noise,
chain idler wear and chain stretching.

SECTION 2 – WIRING
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 such work be performed by a licensed electrical
contractor.
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!!

conduit requirements for your application may vary from this depending on your specific
needs.
•
Use only sweeps for conduit bends. Do not use 90° connectors as this will make wire pulls
very difficult and can cause damage to wire insulation.
•
We suggest that minimum ¾-inch conduit be used.
•
Be sure that all conduits are installed in accordance with local codes.

2.1 HIGH VOLTAGE CONNECTIONS
Use Table 1 to determine high voltage wire size requirements. 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. Wire run calculations are based on a 110 VAC 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.

2.3 SECONDARY ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION DEVICE WIRING
Secondary entrapment protection devices must be installed to insure a safe operating environment
and to reduce the risk of entrapment. This operator has inputs for non-contact sensors and contact
sensors for both opening and closing gate cycles. Secondary entrapment protection may be provided
by a combination of both type sensors. See Section 5.3 for a list of acceptable secondary entrapment
protection devices.
2.3.1 NON-CONTACT SENSORS
•
Disconnect power to the gate operator before installing the non-contact sensors.
•
See figure 26 for suggested placement of sensors. (Diagram is for illustration purposes only.
Actual placement of the sensors is dependent on the installation requirements). One or more
non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such
as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
•
Use only UL listed (or equivalent) non-contact sensors.
•
Connect the non-contact sensors as shown below to the auxiliary terminal strip. Note that all
commons connect to main terminal 12. Inputs from photo-beam to circuit board are
NORMALLY OPEN.

2.4 LOOP DETECTOR WIRING
Loops and loop detectors must be installed with this gate operator to prevent the gate from
accidentally closing on vehicles that may be in the path of the gate.
•
Loop detector wiring is shown for DoorKing model 9406 Plug-In loop detector only. If other
loop detectors are used, refer to the installation instructions supplied with those detectors for
wiring requirements.
•
If other loop detectors are used, all inputs to the terminal strip are NORMALLY OPEN. Use a
separate power supply to power external detectors. Be sure that power is turned off prior to
making any connections to the terminal strip.
•
Loop layout shown is for a typical slide gate application with two-way traffic or one-way exit
only traffic. For one-way entry only traffic, the open loop and loop detector are not needed.

2.5 MASTER / SLAVE WIRING
2.5.1 OPERATOR INTERFACE
The interface wiring between the two operators requires four (3) 18 AWG wires for control plus two
(2) additional 18 AWG wires for secondary entrapment protection device connection. Each operator
must be connected to it's own power source as described in section 2.2.
IMPORTANT! Plug-in loop detectors cannot be used in master / slave applications with these
operators. Use external detectors that have a normally open (N.O.) dry contact as a signal
device.
1. Connect the master / slave wiring (terminals 8, 9, 12) as shown in figure 29. Be sure that
power to both operators is OFF.
2. Connect the common (C) and normally open (N.O.) relay contacts from the OPEN loop
detector to terminals 8 and 12.
3. Connect the radio receiver as shown. Note that the relay contact from the radio receiver
connects to terminal 8.
4. Connect any other OPEN devices to terminals 8 and 12. Connect standard external
REVERSING devices to terminals 9 and 12. See section 2.5.2 for secondary entrapment
protection device wiring for master / slave operators.

2.5.2 SECONDARY ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION DEVICE WIRING
Secondary entrapment protection for slide gate operators connected in a master / slave configuration
will require three sets of photo-beams to insure protection.
•
One photo-beam is directed across the roadway and connected to the CLOSE photo-beam
input on the auxiliary terminal strip of both the master and slave operator. This photo-beam is
active in the close direction only and will not affect the movement of the gates while the gates
are opening.
•
Two photo-beams are required to protect the open direction of the gates - one for the master
operator and one for the slave operator. These photo-beams are connected to the OPEN
photo-beam input on the auxiliary terminal strip in their respective operator. These photobeams are active in the open direction only. If a beam is interrupted while the gate(s) are in
the open cycle, only the gate that is controlled by the interrupted beam will stop, the other
gate will continue in the open direction.

2.6.2 AUXILIARY TERMINAL
The auxiliary terminal is located on the 4702 circuit board just to the right of main terminals 4 and 5.
Auxiliary terminals are numbered 1 through 5 with the first terminal at the top.
1. OPEN PHOTO-BEAM
This input is only active when the gate is in the opening cycle. An open photo-beam input
during the opening cycle will cause the gate to stop. The gate will remain stopped until
the photo-beam input is cleared, at which time the gate will resume the open cycle.
2. CLOSE PHOTO-BEAM
This input is only active when the gate is in the closing cycle. A close photo-beam input
during the closing cycle will cause the gate to stop. The gate will remain stopped until the
photo-beam input is cleared, at which time the gate will resume the close cycle.
3. OPEN EDGE
This input is only active when the gate is in the opening cycle. An open edge input during
the opening cycle will cause the gate to stop and then reverse.
If the gate reaches the full closed position, the gate will remain closed, ignore any
maintained inputs and enter a soft shutdown condition. NOTE: If the gate was initially
activated by a time clock with a contact closure across the gate operator open input, this
input will be ignored until another input (open loop, reverse loop. etc.) is received by the
gate operator.
If a close edge sensor is activated prior to the gate reaching the full closed position, the
gate will stop and enter a soft shutdown condition.
4. CLOSE EDGE
This input is only active when the gate is in the closing cycle. A close edge input during
the closing cycle will cause the gate to stop and then reverse.
If the gate reaches the full open position, the timer will automatically close the gate (if it is
turned on). Once the gate starts to close again, if the close edge input is activated a
second time prior to the gate reaching the full closed position, the operator will stop and
reverse and will enter a soft shutdown condition.
If an open edge sensor is activated prior to the gate reaching the full open position, the
gate will stop and enter a soft shutdown condition.
5. ALARM RESET
This input turns off the entrapment alarm and resets the operator after a hard shutdown
occurs.
6. ALARM SIGNAL
This is an output from the circuit board that drives the entrapment alarm. Do not
connect any other device to this terminal.
MAIN TERMINAL STRIP
Use terminal 12 on the main terminal strip as the common for all auxiliary inputs.

SECTION 3 - ADJUSTMENTS
The switch settings and adjustments in this chapter should be made after your installation and wiring
to the operator(s) is complete. Whenever any of the programming switches on the circuit board are
changed, power must be shut-off, and then turned back on for the new setting to take effect.
3.1 CIRCUIT BOARD ADJUSTMENTS
•
Set the DIP-switches on the circuit board to the desired setting. See switch-setting charts in
section 3.2.
•
Auto close timer (when turned on) can be set from 1 second (full counter clockwise) to
approximately 23 seconds (full clockwise).
•
Dry contact relay (terminals 10-11) can be set for Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed
(NC) operation by placing the relay shorting bar on the NO or NC pins respectively.
•
Power LED indicates that low voltage power is applied to the circuit board. Input LEDs should
be OFF and will only illuminate when the input is activated. The pulse LEDs will blink as the
operator is running. They can be either ON or OFF when the operator is stopped.

Switch 2: Turns the auto close timer on or off. Set from 1 to 23 seconds.
Switch 3: This switch determines 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 not
closed, or turning on a green light when the gate is full open.
Switch 4: This switch determines the operation of the solenoid lock and is factory set. CAUTION: Do
not change the setting of this switch unless the solenoid / lock assembly has been
repositioned for the operation desired. Changing the setting of this switch without physically
changing the lock assembly will damage the operator.
Switches 5-6: These work in conjunction with each other and determine if the operator will stop the
gate at the full open position, or if the gate should stop 1, 2 or 3 inches short of the full open position.
Switches 7-8: These work in conjunction with each other and determine if the operator will stop the
gate at the full closed position, or if the gate should stop 1, 2 or 3 inches short of the full closed
position.
24
3.3 AUTOMATIC LIMIT ADJUSTMENT
This gate operator does not use any mechanical limit switches or run timers to adjust the open and
close positions of the gate. The gate open and close positions are determined by the physical stops
(or chain stops) of the gate. The gate operator will automatically measure the gate and will set its
"limits" from this measurement during this automatic sequence.
!! IMPORTANT !!
This automatic limit adjustment sequence must be run prior to testing the operator for normal
operation, and prior to testing any of the safety features that are incorporated into this operator. This
includes the primary and secondary entrapment protection features, and the entrapment alarm and
reset features.
1. The limit adjustment is automatic and relies on the physical stop of the gate or on the
chain stops installed on the chain. Be sure that the gate has a physical travel limitation in
both directions prior to starting this sequence. DoorKing "Gate Stops" can be used if
physical stops are not present on the gate.
2. Turn power to the operator ON. Activate an open device (or momentarily jumper between
terminals 8 and 12). The gate operator should begin to cycle the gate to the OPEN
position.
3. If the gate operator begins to cycle the gate to the CLOSED position, turn power to the
operator OFF. Change the setting of direction switch 1, then repeat step 2.
4. After the gate reaches the full open position, the gate operator will shut off. Activate a
keying device to close the gate (or allow the timer to close the gate if it is turned on).
When the gate reaches the full closed position, the gate operator will shut off.
NOTE: During this initial setup, be sure that the operator clutch does not slip while the
gate is cycling from the full open to the full closed position. If the clutch slips during this
period, the limits will be misadjusted.
5. After closing, the gate will open automatically and stop approximately one foot from the
full open position, and then will continue to the full open position. Activate a keying device
to close the gate (or allow the timer to close it if it is turned on). The gate will close and
stop approximately one foot from the full closed position, and then will continue to the full
close position.
6. The operator limits and coast settings are now set. Cycle the gate again. The operator
should reach the full open and full close positions and then shut off automatically.
25
3.4 INHERENT REVERSE ADJUSTMENT
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent (Type A) entrapment sensing system. This
system will sense an obstruction in either the opening or closing gate cycles and will cause the gate
to reverse direction should an obstruction be encountered. For this system to function correctly, the
gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions. A good set of ball bearing wheels
(or rollers) is essential for proper slide gate operation.
3.4.1 REVERSE SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
1. Activate the gate operator my momentarily shorting terminal 8 and 12 with a 1-foot piece
of 18 AWG wire. Be sure that the automatic limit adjustment has been completed as
described in section 3.3.
2. While the gate is running, slowly rotate the reverse sensitivity potentiometer clockwise
until the gate reverses travel, then rotate the potentiometer 1/8 turn counter clockwise.
Note: Rotating the sensitivity adjustment clockwise INCREASES the reverse sensitivity.
Rotating this adjustment counter-clockwise DECREASES the reverse sensitivity. NOTE:
After the gate has reversed, the operator will assume a "soft shutdown" making it
necessary to initiate the cycle again by momentarily shorting across terminals 8 and 12
as in step 1.
3. Operate the gate a few times to be sure that it cycles completely.
4. Place an immobile object along the path of the gate so that the gate will strike it while in
the open cycle. The gate must reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not,
increase the reverse sensitivity by turning the potentiometer 1/8 turn clockwise, then
repeat this test. NOTE: After the gate has reversed, the operator will assume a "soft
shutdown" making it necessary to initiate the cycle again by momentarily shorting across
terminals 8 and 12 as in step 1.
5. Place an immobile object along the path of the gate so that the gate will strike it while in
the close cycle. The gate must reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not,
increase the reverse sensitivity by turning the potentiometer 1/8 turn clockwise, then
repeat this test. NOTE: After the gate has reversed, the operator will assume a "soft
shutdown" making it necessary to initiate the cycle again by momentarily shorting across
terminals 8 and 12 as in step 1 to reactivate the automatic close timer.
6. You may have to repeat step 2 several times to find the correct sensitivity adjustment.

3.4.2 CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT
In addition to the reverse sensitivity adjustment, this operator is equipped with a mechanical slip
clutch to further reduce the possibility of injury should an entrapment occur. Do not over tighten the
clutch in this gate operator to compensate for a damaged or poorly constructed gate, or to
compensate for a gate that is too heavy or that has damaged wheels or rollers. Doing this can create
a hazard which can result in serious injury or death to persons who may become entrapped.
Figure 33

Jam Nut
Lock Bolt
1. Be sure power to the operator is turned OFF whenever adjustments to the clutch
are made. Loosen the center hex bolt to "un-lock" the jamb nut, and then loosen the jam
nut. You may have to hold the large pulley to loosen this nut.
2. Tighten the jamb nut so that it is finger tight, and then tighten it one turn with a wrench.
Tighten the center hex bolt to lock the jamb nut in place.
3. Apply power to the gate operator and cycle it to allow the operator to adjust its limit
settings as described in section 3.3.
4. Activate the gate operator by momentarily shorting across terminals 4 and 18 with a 1foot 18 AWG wire. When the gate begins to open, determine if the clutch is slipping. If the
clutch is slipping, turn power OFF and tighten the jamb nut one more turn as described in
step 2, then repeat steps 3 and 4 (This process may have to be repeated several times to
get the right clutch adjustment).
5. After adjusting the clutch so that the gate opens and closes without it slipping, place an
immobile object along the path of the gate so that the gate will strike it while in the open
cycle. The clutch should slip and the gate must reverse direction after striking the object.
If it does not, repeat steps 1-3 and 5 to readjust the clutch. NOTE: After the gate has
reversed, the operator will assume a "soft shutdown" making it necessary to initiate the
cycle again by momentarily shorting across terminals 4 and 18.
6. Place an immobile object along the path of the gate so that the gate will strike it while in
the close cycle. The gate must reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not,
repeat steps 1-3 and 6 to readjust the clutch. NOTE: After the gate has reversed, the
operator will assume a "soft shutdown" making it necessary to initiate the cycle again by
momentarily shorting across terminals 4 and 18 to initiate the auto close timer.
7. The ideal clutch adjustment will allow the operator to move the gate through its entire
travel cycle without slipping, but will slip upon contact with an obstruction with no more
than 75 Lbs of force. This force can be measured with a gate scale, DoorKing P/N 2600225.

4.1 POWER AND RESET SWITCHES
Open the power switch cover located on the side of the operator to access the MAIN POWER switch
and the operator RESET switch (Figure 34).
The RESET switch is used to turn off
the entrapment alarm and to reset
the operator after a hard shutdown
has occurred.

4.2 SHUTDOWN CONDITIONS
Under various entrapment conditions the operator will assume either a soft or hard shutdown (alarm)
condition. To determine what type of reset action is required, you will need to understand how the
different entrapment conditions affect the gate operator.
4.2.1 SOFT SHUTDOWN
This occurs in various situations where the inherent or secondary entrapment protection devices have
been activated. In a soft shutdown condition, the operator will not respond to any input that was
present when the entrapment protection device sensed an obstruction. If the gate stops at the open
position, the operator will not respond to the automatic close timer.
•
Example 1: A time clock keys the gate open in the morning and an entrapment protection
device senses an obstruction prior to the gate reaching the full open position. If the
entrapment is sensed by the inherent system, the gate will reverse and run back to the closed
position. The time clock input is still present, but the gate will not re-open.
NOTE: In some systems, the time clock input comes from the telephone entry system relay. This
same relay may also provide open commands for a card reader, MicroPLUS transmitters and the
visitor telephone entry. If so, these devices will also be disabled in a soft shutdown condition.
•
Example 2: If the gate is closing and an entrapment protection device is activated, the gate
will either stop or reverse and run back to the open position, depending upon if the secondary
or inherent device was activated. The automatic close timer will not close the gate.
•
Example 3: Vehicle arrives at open loop and the 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.
4.2.2 RESETTING A SOFT SHUTDOWN
In some conditions, a soft shutdown will reset as soon as the entrapment condition clears. For
example, if a non-contact sensor (photo cell) is sensing an obstruction, the operator will stop the gate
and assume a soft shutdown condition. When the photocell clears, the operator will return to normal
operation.
When the operator is in a soft shutdown, activation of any "intended input" will reset the operator. An
"intended input" includes any command, any standard safety input and any loop input. Activating any
of these inputs will reset the gate. At that point the gate will return to normal operation. If the gate is
open, the automatic close timer will then time out and close the gate.
30
4.2.3 HARD SHUTDOWN
A hard shutdown condition occurs when the inherent entrapment protection system has sensed two
consecutive obstructions before the gate reaches the full open or full 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.).
•
NOTE: The audio alarm will remain activated for a maximum of five minutes, or until the
operator receives a reset input. The hard shutdown condition will remain in affect even if the
audio alarm shuts off after five minutes.
•
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.
4.2.4 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. 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 (see 2.6.1).
•
Before resetting a hard shutdown, determine why the shutdown occurred. Inspect the gate
for any obstructions along its path that could have activated the inherent entrapment sensing
system. Inspect the gate and gate hardware.
•
NOTE: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator
above the power ON-OFF toggle switch. Activating this button will return the gate operator to
normal operation, but will not activate the gate operator.
Once the gate has been reset, an open or close command is needed to start the gate operator. Most
activating commands will cause the gate operator to cycle to the open position. This includes
activation of a key switch or open command and activation of an open loop. Activation of a close
command will run the gate to the closed position.
•
NOTE: The gate operator will not lose its limit settings when a hard shutdown occurs.
31
4.3 MANUAL / EMERGENCY 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.
There are two manual release systems that are available on this gate operator. The standard type
release is the FAIL-SAFE system (required by many city codes), while an optional release is the
FAIL-SECURE system.
NOTE: 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.
4.3.1 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-2-Enter radio receivers, strobe
light sensors, siren sensors, etc.
2. In the event of a power failure, the emergency vehicle access device may not be
functional because the gate operator is un-powered. If the gate operator is equipped with
a battery back-up system, this system will automatically open the gate when primary (AC)
power is removed. NOTE: DC powered back-up systems are optional and your gate
system may or may not be equipped with one. Check with your installer to determine if
your gate system is equipped with a back-up power system.
3. In the event of a primary (AC) power failure and a back-up system (DC) power failure
(low charged or dead batteries for example), the system must have a release system to
allow the gate to be manually operated. The release device must be accessible from
either side of the gate and must be present so that emergency personnel can gain
access through the gate under this condition.
4.3.2 FAIL-SAFE MANUAL OPERATION
The FAIL-SAFE manual operation system is the most reliable and safest method for placing an
automated gate in manual operation and is the preferred method of emergency gate operation under
worse case conditions by many Fire Chiefs and Building Inspectors and is typically used in CLASS I
and CLASS II applications. This system requires no keys, cranks or other tools for manual gate
operation and is completely automatic. This prevents any delays for emergency vehicle access in the
event that a power outage has occurred.
•
When AC power is removed (power failure or switch power off), the operator "FAILS" in a
"SAFE" condition allowing the gate to be manually pushed open without the need of any
tools, keys, cranks or other devices. This assures emergency vehicle access under the
worst-case conditions.
•
For manual fail-safe gate operation, turn power to the operator OFF. If a backup power
system is in use, be sure that this power is turned OFF also. Once power is OFF, the gate
can be manually operated.
32
4.3.3 FAIL-SECURE MANUAL OPERATION
The FAIL-SECURE option locks the gate when primary (AC) power is removed and requires a keyed
release to place the gate in manual operation. The FAIL-SECURE option is typically used in CLASS
III and CLASS IV applications.
•
Be sure that primary (AC) and backup (DC) power is removed or shut-off prior to placing the
gate operator in manual operation.
•
Insert the manual release key into the keyed release on the side of the gate operator, and
turn it clockwise 1/4 turn. The gate can now be manually operated.

SECTION 5 – 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.
5.1 MAINTENANCE
When servicing the gate operator, always check any secondary (external) reversing devices (loops,
photo eyes, etc.) for proper operation. If external reversing devices cannot be made operable, do not
place this operator in service until the malfunction can be identified and corrected.
Always check the inherent reversing system when performing any maintenance. If the
inherent reversing system cannot be made operable, remove this operator from service until
the cause of the malfunction is identified and corrected. Keeping this operator in service
when the inherent reversing system is malfunctioning creates a hazard for persons which can
result in serious injury or death should they become entrapped in the gate.
When servicing this gate operator, always turn power OFF!!

5.2 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 terminals, motor
capacitor and the motor.
1. Check the input indicator LEDs. They should only come ON when a keying device (card
reader, push button, etc.) is activated. If any of the input LEDs are ON continuously, this
will cause the gate operator to hold open. Disconnect the keying devices one at a time
until the LED goes OFF.
2. Check any external secondary entrapment protection devices. Any short or malfunction
in these devices can cause the gate operator to stop or to hold open.
3. A malfunction in a loop or loop detector can cause the gate operator to hold open, or to
not detect a vehicle when it is present over the loop. 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 8 and 12 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.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION(S)
•
Check that power to the operator is turned ON.
•
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 high voltage terminals. If voltage measures 0, check input power. If
voltage measures OK, check the terminal strip or replace the circuit board.
•
If a photo-cell is used as a secondary entrapment prevention device, check to be sure that
the beam is not blocked.
•
Momentarily jumper terminal 8 to terminal 12. 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.
•
Be sure that the chain is not too tight. A too tight chain may cause the operator to stall.
•
Turn power switch OFF and remove the control board.
•
Place a jumper wire from terminal 3 to terminal 4. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. Turn the
power switch on. The motor should run. Turn the power switch off and remove the
jumper.
•
Place a jumper wire from terminal 3 to 5. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. Turn the power
switch on. The motor should run in the opposite direction. Turn the power switch off and
remove the jumper.
•
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, motor resistors,
wire connections from the control board to the motor or a bad control board.

Check that the clutch is adjusted properly and is not slipping.
•
Disconnect the gate from the gate operator and check that the gate slides freely without
any binding.
•
Re-adjust the reverse sensitivity.
•
Check the COUNTER LEDs on the circuit board. They should blink as the operator is
running. If either COUNTER LED is not blinking as the operator is running, check that the
magnetic pickup transistors are within 1/8 inch of the plastic protective cover above the
magnet assembly on the main shaft.
•
Replace the circuit board.
•
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 switch 2 is ON.
•
Check motor as described on previous page.
•
Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs. If 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 1. 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 12 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 clutch is adjusted properly and is not slipping.
•
Re-adjust the reverse sensitivity.
•
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.
•
Check the COUNTER LEDs on the circuit board. If either COUNTER LED is not blinking
as the operator is running, check that the magnetic pickup transistors are within 1/8 inch of
the protective plastic cover above the magnet assembly on the main shaft.
•
Replace the circuit board.
•
Check for any input or loop detector LEDs that are ON.
•
Check that the operator is running in the proper direction (see “gate closes but will not
open” above).
•
Turn power off, then back on and reset the operator limits.
•
Operator is in a “hard shutdown” condition. Reset switch must be activated to return
operator to normal operation.
•
Operator has been in a “hard shutdown” condition in excess of 5 minutes. Reset switch
must be activated to return operator to normal operation.
