IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Important Safety Instructions
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SEVERE
INJURY OR DEATH:
•
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
•
Never let children operate or play with the gate
controls. Keep remote controls away from children.
•
Always keep people and objects away from the
gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF A
MOVING GATE.
•
Test the gate operator monthly. The gate MUST
reverse on contact with a rigid object or when an
object activates a non-contact sensor. If necessary,
adjust the force or the limit of travel and then retest
the gate operator. Failure to properly adjust and retest
the gate operator can increase the risk of injury or
death.
•
Use the manual release mechanism only when the
gate is not moving.
•
KEEP GATE PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Have
a qualified service person make repairs to gate
hardware.
•
The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must
use a separate entrance.
•
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
Important Installation Instructions
1. Install the gate operator only when the following conditions have been met:
•
The operator is appropriate for the type and usage
class of the gate.
•
All openings of a horizontal slide gate have been
guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to
a minimum of 4 feet (1.25 m) above the ground to
prevent a 2.25 inch (55 mm) diameter sphere from
passing through openings anywhere in the gate or
through that portion of the adjacent fence that the gate
covers when in the open position.
•
All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded.
•
Guarding is supplied for exposed rollers.
2. The operator is intended for installation on gates used by
vehicles only. Pedestrians must be provided with a separate access opening.
3. To reduce the risk of entrapment when opening and
closing, the gate must be installed in a location that allows
adequate clearance between the gate and adjacent structures. Swinging gates shall not open outward into public
access areas.
4. Before installing the gate operator, ensure that the gate
has been properly installed and that it swings freely in
both directions. Do not over-tighten the operator clutch or
pressure relief valve to compensate for a damaged gate.
5. User controls must be installed at least 6 feet (1.83 m)
away from any moving part of the gate and located where
the user is prevented from reaching over, under, around or
through the gate to operate the controls. Controls located
outdoors or those that are easily accessible shall have
security features to prevent unauthorized use.
6. The Stop and/or Reset buttons must be located within
line-of-sight of the gate. Activation of the reset control
shall not cause the operator to start.
7. All warning signs and placards must be installed and
easily seen within visible proximity of the gate. A minimum
of one warning sign shall be installed on each side of the
gate.
8. For gate operators that utilize a non-contact sensor (photo
beam or the like):
FAA C MODEL 84 4 Slide G at e O per at or
•
See instructions on the placement of non-contact
sensors for each type of application.
•
Exercise care to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping,
such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate
is still moving.
•

that communication between sensor and gate
operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
•
•
Locate wireless contact sensors, such as those
that transmit radio frequency (RF) signals, where
the transmission of signals are not obstructed or
impeded by building structures, natural landscaping
or similar hindrances. Wireless contact sensors shall
function under their intended end-use conditions.
Only qualified personnel should install this equipment.
Failure to meet this requirement could cause severe
injury and/or death, for which the manufacturer cannot
be held responsible.
•
The installer must provide a main power switch that
meets all applicable safety regulations.

MODEL 844 OPERATOR
1.
DESCRIPTION & SPECIFICATIONS
These instructions apply to the following models:
844 ER Z16 CR, 844 R, 844 R CAT, 844 R RF
The FAAC Model 844 automated system for sliding
gates is an electro-mechanical operator transmitting
motion to the sliding leaf via a rack or chain pinion
appropriately coupled to the gate.
The non-reversing system ensures the gate is
mechanically locked when the motor is not operating
and, therefore, no lock needs to be installed.
The gearmotor is equipped with a mechanical
clutch which, combined with an electronic device,
offers the necessary adjustable anti-crushing
safety and guarantees stopping or reversing the
gate movement. A handy manual release makes it
possible to move the gate in the event of a power
cut or malfunction. The control board, if supplied
with the gearmotor, it is placed inside the operator.
The 844 automated system was designed and
manufactured to control access of vehicles. Avoid
any other use whatever.
Fig. 1
1.1.
MAXIMUM USE CURVE
The curve makes it possible to establish maximum
work time (T) according to use frequency (F). The
844 gearmotor can operate non-stop at 70% use
frequency.
To ensure efficient operation, operate in the work
range below the curve.
Important: The curve is obtained at a temperature
of 75°F. Exposure to direct sunlight can reduce use
frequency down to 20%.
Calculating Use Frequency
The percentage of effective work time (opening +
closing) compared to total time of cycle (opening +
closing + pause times).
Calculation Formula
Ta + Tc
Ta + Tc + Tp + Ti
%F =
X 100
Where: Ta = opening time
Tc = closing time
Tp = pause time
Ti = time of interval (between 2 complete cycles)

FSW OP - Opening Safety Devices Contact (Terminal 3):
The purpose of the opening safety devices is to protect the
leaf movement area during opening. During opening, in the
A-AP-S-E-EP logics the safety devices reverse the movement of the gate, or stop and restart the movement when it
is released (see advanced programming in Section 5.5.2).
During the opening cycle in logicsthe B, C and B/C, they
interrupt movement. They never operate during the closing
cycle.
If the Opening safety devices are engaged when the gate
is closed, they prevent the opening movement.
To install several safety devices, connect the N.C. contacts in
series (Fig.25).

OPEN A - “Total Opening” Command (Terminal 1): any
pulse generator (push-button, detector, etc.) which, by closing a contact, commands total opening and/or closing of the
gate leaf.
To install several total opening pulse generators, connect the
N.O. contacts in parallel (Fig. 35).
OPEN B - “Partial Opening” or “Closing” Command
(Terminal 2): any pulse generator (push-button, detector,
etc.) which, by closing a contact, commands partial opening
and/or closing of the gate leaf. In the B, C and B/C logics, it
always commands gate closure.
NB: If no opening safety devices are connected, jumper
inputs FSW OP and -TX FSW (Fig. 26).
FSW CL - Closing Safety Devices Contact (Terminal 4):
The purpose of the closing safety devices is to protect the
gate movement area during closing. During closing, in the
A-AP-S-E-EP logics, the safety devices reverse the movement of the gate, or stop and reverse the movement when it
is released (see advanced programming in Section 5.5.2).
During the closing cycle in logics B, C and B/C, they interrupt
movement. They never operate during the opening cycle. If
the Closing safety devices are engaged when the gate is
open, they prevent the closing movement.
To install several safety devices, connect the N.C. contacts in
series (Fig.25).
NB: If no closing safety devices are connected, jumper
terminals FSW CL and -TX FSW (Fig. 26).
STOP - STOP Contact (Terminal 5):
Any device (e.g. a push-button) which, by opening a contact,
stops gate movement.
To install several STOP devices, connect the N.C. contacts in
series (Fig. 25).
NB: If STOP devices are not connected, jumper the STOP
and - terminals.
SAFE - EDGE Safety Device Contact (Terminal 6):
The purpose of the "edge" safety device is to protect the
leaf movement area during opening/closing. In all logics,
during opening and closing, the safety device reverses gate
movement for 2 seconds. If the safety devices operate again
during the 2-seconds reversing time, it stops movement
(STOP) without any reversing.
If the Edge safety device is engaged while the gate is closed or open, it prevents movement.
To install several safety devices, connect the N.C. contacts in
series (Fig.25).
NB: If edge safety devices are not connected, jumper the
SAFE and - inputs (Fig. 26).

The encoder operates as an anti-crushing device. If the gate hits an obstacle during opening
or closing, the encoder immediately reverses
the gate leaf movement for 2 seconds. If the
encoder operates again during the 2-seconds
reversing time, the movement stops (STOP)
without commanding any reversing.
If no encoder is supplied, the parameter must

Be careful when setting the post-limit-switch deceleration
and braking. If the deceleration is too long and braking is
insufficient, the magnet or steel plate fitted on the gate's rack
can overshoot the sensor until it is disengaged. When the gate
stops, check that only the light limit-switch is engaged. The
relevant LED must be OFF. If it went OFF and then ON again,
or if both limit-switch LEDS are OFF, you must reduce the
post-limit-switch deceleration value and/or increase the braking
value (see Section 5.5.2).

14.TROUBLESHOOTING
If you have a problem installing the operator, check the problems and solutions listed below for suggestions.
PROBLEM
A
The operator does not respond to the
activating signal.
SOLUTIONS
• Make sure the main power switch is on.
• Check the control panel terminal strip for possible broken or disconnected wires.
• If a radio signal is being used to activate the operator, be sure the code
sets on both the transmitter and receiver are the same.
• Momentarily short across terminals 1 and 7 on the control panel. If
this activates the operator, a problem probably exists in the activating
device itself.
B
The gate is closed and does not open.
• Make sure the clutch adjustment is not too weak.
• Increase the torque if the motor is running and the gate is not moving.
This may be necessary for especially heavy gates.
• Check that the closed limit switch is working. The FC status light should
be off. Make sure that the limit switch plate is not too far away from the
limit switch. The distance between a plate and the switch should be
3/16 in.
• Check fuse F1 and replace it if necessary.
C
The gate opens, but will not close.
• If there are no optional reversing devices connected to the control
panel, make sure a jumper is installed between terminals 4 and 11 on
the control panel.
• If optional reversing devices have been installed, check them to see if
they are working properly (an activated reversing device will prevent
the gate from closing). Temporarily short across the relevant terminals
to bypass the reversing devices to see if the gate closes. If the gate
closes, then the problem exists within the reversing device(s).
D
The gate opens, but the operator continues to run.
• Check the FC light on the control panel. It should be OFF. If it is ON,
check the alignment of the limit switch plate.
• If the FCC light is ON and the limit switch plate is correctly adjusted,
replace the limit switch.
Note: If the limit switch plates are not detected by the limit switch on the
operator, the motor will run for 120 seconds and then the control panel will
be in alarm status.

assumes nor authorizes any person to assume
for them any other liability in connection with

all other warranties expressed or implied including the warranties of merchantability and fitness
for use. This warranty shall not apply to products
or any part thereof which have been subject to
accident, negligence, alteration, abuse, or misuse
