Estate Swing Summary of Functions
The Estate Swing is only to be used for vehicular swing gates in a Class I setting.
Class I: A vehicular gate opener (or system) intended for use in a home
of one-to-four single family dwelling, or a garage or parking area associated therewith.
The Estate Swing automated system was designed and built for controlling vehicle
access. Do not use for any other purpose.
The external automation with an electromechanical non-reversing linear arm automates residential dual swing-leaf gates with leaves of up to 12’ in length per leaf. It
consists of an irreversible electromechanical operator with built in opening and closing limits and utilizes a worm screw system. The irreversible system ensures the gate is
mechanical locked when the motor is not operating. A lock still needs to be installed
if security or high winds are a concern. Removal of the gate slide pin will manually allow the gate to be opened.

Standard System Overview and Safety Zones
The system displayed below is a recommended standard system. Other approved accessories
can be installed. Photo sensors and a flashing light indicating gate movement is recommended for safety purposes.
1,2 Estate Swing Operator • 3 Photocells (not included) • 4 Control board • 5 N/A • 6 Push button opening device (not included) • 7 Receiver extension (not included)• 8 12Vdc flashing
lamp (not included) • 9 Positive stop (not included) • 10 Charging Control
Notes:
1) When laying electrical cables, use appropriate rigid and/or flexible tube
2) Do not run any wires in the same conduit as110 AC power that may be in the area. This will cause
danger of electrocution.
Important: Preliminary Checks
To ensure safety and an efficiently operating automated system, make sure the following conditions are
observed.

The gate and post must be suitable for being automated. Check that the structure is sufficiently
strong and rigid, and its dimensions and weights conform to those indicated on page 1.

Make sure the gates move smoothly without any irregular friction during entire travel.

Make sure the hinges are in good condition. Ball bearing hinges are necessary for gates weighing
over 200 lbs. or over 10’ in length.

Make sure the gate is plumb and level.

The gate post must be secured in the ground with concrete. This will prevent alteration of alignments and leveling during installation and during cycles.

• Positive post, bracket or door stop. Although the Estate Swing 1000 features built in limit switches it is
highly recommended to have positive stops.
• 16 gauge, 2 conductor stranded direct burial low voltage wire will be required to run power to your
battery. Length is determined by distance between transformer or solar power supply and the control
box.
• 4 - 3/8” Carriage Bolts will be needed to connect the 2 “L” shaped brackets to the post. Length will
be determined by the size of your posts.
• A metal support bracket may be needed to achieve the appropriate desired setback. The metal
support bracket will be bolted or welded to your post to give a larger amount of space to mount the
provided mounting bracket.
• A voltage meter and digital camera may be necessary to run diagnostic checks.
• If your transformer is going to be plugged into an outdoor outlet you will need to weatherproof that
outlet and transformer. Electrical boxes or plug covers can be obtained from a local hardware store

IMPORTANT: Pull to Open Operation
This means the gate operator is mounted on the inside of the property and pulls your
gate in towards the property. If you are going to use push to open operation “X” out
the next 3 pages and use the push to open section instructions.
E-S 1000D Series Instruction Manual
2.2
IMPORTANT: Determining Correct Setback
Below are 2 common examples of setback mountings. These are not the only options
for mounting.
There are 4 factors to keep in mind when finding the setback mounting:
1) The (A) measurement is perpendicular from the gate in the CLOSED position.
2) There must be clearance for your gate opener to attach to the gate in the closed position. This is most
commonly an issue on columns. Re-positioning of the hinges or Push-To-Open operation may be required
to achieve clearance.
3) The brackets do not and must not move after installation.
4) The "L" shape brackets can be mounted anywhere on the post or column. They can be mounted on a
separate post or fence as well. The only factor of importance is that when mounting of the brackets is
done the hole in the boomerang bracket that the gate opener mounts on matches the setback on this
page.
It is best to C-Clamp brackets on and test arm movement clearance before permanently attaching
them.
Variations to the ideal setback can be made, so long as the total is less than the combined measurements for the desired opening arc and the motor body is more than 2 inches away from the gate in both
the open and closed position. (setback variations significantly reduces the length and weight capacity of
the operator)

2.3
Installation of Operator—Pull-to-Open
1) Locate the set back template found in the
box to determine the proper setback. Create
a template out of the boomerang bracket by
tracing it on a piece of cardboard.
2) Find the proper setback for your operator
(from previous page). Hold the lower “L”
shaped bracket along with the boomerang
bracket template against the post near the
hinge. [See Fig. 1]
Fig 1
Mark how much of the boomerang bracket
you will trim off on the template. The hole on
the end of the boomerang bracket should be
in the setback position.
NOTE: The “L” shape brackets in our illustrations
are on the opposite side of the post as the
hinges. The “L” shape brackets in your situation
may be on the rear face of the post, this will be
determined by the relation of the setback to
the hinge location of your gate.
Fig 2
3) Trim boomerang bracket template, then
double check setback positioning.
Using the template, mark the boomerang
bracket for cutting. [See Fig. 2]
4) Cut off the excess length (if any) of the
boomerang bracket using a sawzall or hacksaw.

E-S 1000D Series Instruction Manual
3.3
Easy Wiring Under Driveway
This portion of the manual will explain how to
create an easy conduit for the wires for dual
gates.
This is what you would need to get started:
- Narrow shovel.
- ¾’ water pipe no more that 5’ in length (you
would need a total number of pipes that would
equal your driveway width plus 1’).
- ¾’ electric rigid pipe couplings (one for each
joint in the water pipe).
- 1 ¾’ “Tee”
- 1 ¾’ Plug.
- 1 ¾’ male galvanized pipe X female hose fitting (usually in Brass).
- Large hammer.
All the above items could be found in a local
home supply store.
Dig a trench perpendicular to the driveway
approximately 6 to 8 inches deep and 6’ long
Hook up a typical garden hose assembled
to the first length of pipe as shown
Turn on water and push the pipe under the
driveway, matching the pitch of the driveway.
If you hit a rock use the hammer to force the
pipe past the rock.
Attach additional pieces of pipe to the initial
length by removing the tee and using the coupling to add the additional length of pipe, reassemble the tee and repeat the above steps until
only 6 inches of pipe is sticking out from under
the driveway. On the opposite side of the driveway look for a wet spot or water bubbling up,
dig to find the end of the pipe.
This process is good for driveways up
to 24’ in width.

For Your Convenience
The green terminal strips on the control board are easily removed for wiring. Simply
pull straight out on the terminal strip to remove it from the board. It will slide right off.
Slide it back on when you are finished with your wiring connections.
!
Be sure you are placing your wires
in the terminal block correctly.
Take the terminal block off of the control board
to insert wires. Hold with screw terminals facing
upward.
Turn the screw counter-clockwise to open the
terminal and clockwise to close the terminal.
The terminals come closed. Be sure not to mistake this for open and insert the wires below the
terminal clamp. This will lack the conductivity to
complete the circuit.

Operating Parameters Customization
1. LED shows P1: P1 is for setting your run time. The run time will be determined from the
time you had determined during the set up of the limit switches. Take that determined run
time and add 1 second. So if it takes 10 seconds to get from closed to open between limit
switches; set the run time to 11 seconds. The options are 0-99 seconds.
2. LED shows P2: P2 is for setting your slow down time. The gate opener will slow down to
half speed after the time set on P2 expires. If you wish to have the gate open and close
faster make the slow down start time a longer period of time. If you want to put less stress
on the gears and gate set the slow time shorter to slow the momentum sooner. The options
will adjust to match the previously set run time. NOTE: motor must be in slow down to detect limits—be sure this number does not exceed the time the motor take to move from
one limit to the other.
3. LED shows P3: P3 is the force setting, the lower the number the easier the gate will reverse directions when it meets resistance. This number may have to be changed to a higher setting if your gate is obstructing unexpectedly. The number should be set to the highest
number during initial setup and reduced to the point of reliable operation that takes into
account change in gate resistance through out the year. The options are 0-32.
4. LED shows P4: P4 is for setting a delay between leafs if you have overlapping gates or a
gate lock. The motor wired into the master terminals (1) opens first if there is a delay and
closes second. It is recommended to have a delay of 3 seconds to avoid any jamming issues between leafs.
5. LED shows P5: P5 is the release for the gate lock – this option determines the length of
time 24VDC will be sent out of terminals E_LOCK. The options are 1-4 seconds.
6. LED shows P6: P6 is the delay for automatic re-close from the open position – this option
needs to be turned on using the dip switch on the board. The options are 0-99 seconds.

1. With the red plug already inside the control box,
run the grey receiver wire out of the box through one
of the water tight connections.
2. Find a location for the receiver box on the gate
post or a fence post that is within the length of the
receiver wire.
3. Using a #6 screw attached the top of the receiver
to the post. If you are happy with this position use the
small provided set screw in the bottom hole to secure the receiver in place.
4. Attach the receiver wire to the terminals as seen
below. Please note that you will find a factory installed jumper wire connected on the receiver.
Leave this jumper wire in place. One of the terminals
that has the jumper wire will have the White wire added to the terminal.

5. Plug the red clip inside the control box into
the control board. The groove in the red clips
should snap into the guide on the 5 prong connector.
(Fig 1)
6. The red power light should come on the receiver. (Fig 2)
7. Program your remotes to the receiver:
A. Press and release the LEARN1 button at the
top of the receiver board (ex 1). The learn LED
will illuminate steady (ex 2). (Fig 3)
B. Press and hold the button on the remote you
wish to program to the receiver.
C. Hold the remote button until the Learn LED
flashes and then turns off. (caution your gate
opener may be triggered during this process)
D. Repeat A through C for all additional remotes.
NOTES ABOUT REMOTES:
You can program up to 400 codes into the receiver. This could mean 1 button on 400 different remotes or this could mean all 4 buttons on 100 remotes or anything in between. Some
choose to program all 4 buttons to a single receiver if they are not using multiple gates to
eliminate pressing the incorrect button on the remote. To do so follow the programming
above with each button of the remote. You can erase all programmed codes by holding
Learn 1 until the Learn LED comes ON and then turns OFF.
8. Put the cover on the receiver and secure it in place using the provided screw.
IMPORTANT: The receiver is a drip proof receiver. This means that it is designed to prevent
water from accessing the inside of the receiver when the water is moving downward with
gravity (rain for example).
DO NOT mount the receiver anyplace that water may access it from another angle. For example: Do not mount near sprinklers. Do not mount the receiver horizontally. Do not mount
the receiver near a flat surface where water could splash upwards.

Troubleshooting
If the gate opener will not move but the board is counting the run time:
• Check wiring connections.
• Check the 8 amp fuse near the bottom left side of the board - the proper way to inspect a
fuse is to remove it from its clips and check for continuity. The fuses have black covers on them
that need to be flipped open before the fuse itself is visible.
• Check the operator arms by hooking the red and black power wires directly to the battery.
The arm will move open or closed depending on which wire you put to positive or negative on
the battery, so have the gate halfway open before doing this test. Pulling the pin and screwing
the end of the arm out is the easiest way to put the gate in the halfway open position.
If the gate opener moves a few inches or feet and stops or reverses directions:
• Increase the force setting (P3).
• Check the setback. The setback of the operator is important to correct operation due to leverage the arm will have on the gate.
• Check the battery voltage. Proper voltage should be between 12.5 - 13.8 and drop no more
than a quarter of a volt under load.
• Disconnect accessories that may be triggering the gate a second time. The most frequent
issues are from exit sensors or other automatic opening devices.
The gate does not reach the desired stop points:
• Adjust the limit switches. Move both limit switches in towards the center of the shaft and then
move them out after you are sure the limits are stopping the gate and not the arm just reaching its physical limitation.
• Lengthen the run time parameter (P1). This parameter can only be too short so increase this
number to make sure that the limits are stopping the gate and not the run time.
• Check setback— if setback is incorrect it will limit how far the gate will move per inch of
stroke length.
If the gate will open but will not close:
• Cut power to the board by removing one of the wires going to the battery. Turn the auto
close dip switch to the off position. Manually move the gate slightly off the open position by
turning shaft and re-attaching to gate, plug the battery back in, then trigger the gate to go
closed. If the gate then moves closed the limits are most likely wired backwards. (Meaning
open limit is wired to closed and closed wired to open) Check the wiring. Make sure you are
following the Pull to Open instructions if the gate opens in towards the property and Push to
Open if the gate opens out towards the street.
• If you are not using safety devices the safety jumpers are in place. If PH is on display it is an
issue with the safety jumper or a device in the safety terminals.

Troubleshooting
• If you are using a safety device:
• Check to make sure you are using the normally closed connection instead of the normally
open.
• Check to be sure there is continuity being provided between the common and normally
closed wire of the safety device. If there is not continuity then refer to the installation guide of
the device to set up properly.
• Move the gate halfway by turning the shaft, and then check the continuity of the limit wires.
Red is the common, Yellow is for the open limit and the Black is for the closed limit. Check the
continuity between the red and yellow wires and then between the red and black wires. If this
is the problem you will not have continuity between the red and black wires causing the gate
to not move closed. This can be caused by a couple different things but most likely there is a
break in the wire at some point.
If the gate will close but not open:
• Move the gate halfway by turning the shaft, and then check the continuity of the limit wires.
Red is the common, yellow is for the open limit and the black is for the closed limit. Check the
continuity between the red and yellow wires and then between the red and black wires. If this
is the problem you will not have continuity between the red and yellow wires causing the gate
to not move open. This can be caused by a couple different things but most likely there is a
break in the wire at some point.
The display of the board will not light up:
• Check the battery supply for 12.5V DC.
• The arms are not wired in or properly wired on the limit switch connections. Without the limit
switch connections being closed the board will not light up.
The gate opener is not stopping on the limit switches:
• Remove all pre-installed jumpers from the limit switch terminals that have limits going to them.
The slave gate terminals come pre-jumped for single operation, if you are using a dual system
pay particular attention to this detail and remove the jumpers when you put your limit switches
in.
• The limits are wired incorrectly—be sure that you are following the correct wiring diagram for
pull to open or push to open.
• For dual gates check that the delay between leafs is 2 or above. If both limits are triggered
simultaneously there is a chance a limit could be missed.
E-S 1000D Series Instruction Manual
5.2
Troubleshooting
One or both arms are not moving:
• If displays “LU”, the battery is too low & it is in low voltage lock out. Replace or charge battery.
Check the charging mechanism of the battery, (solar panel or plug-in). Make sure to check the
voltage of the solar panel when it is getting full sun. Load test the battery by putting the red
and black motor leads directly to the battery while checking the voltage. Proper voltage
should be between 12.5 - 13.8 and drop no more than a quarter of a volt under load.
• Check to be sure wiring color pattern matches the installation (Example: push to open wiring
for a push to open installation) - If the limits or motor are wiring opposite the installation the
board will believe it is closed or open when it is actually the opposite and the arms will never
move.
• Cut power to the board by removing one of the wires going to the battery. Turn the auto
close dip switch to the off position. Manually move the gate slightly off the open position by
turning shaft and re-attaching to gate, plug the battery back in and then trigger the gate. If
the gate then moves closed the arms are most likely wired backwards.
• Check the limit wires are correctly in the terminal blocks. The terminal blocks come with the
terminal clamps closed - however when the terminal clamps are closed there is a small space
below them one could mistake as place to insert a wire. If this is done then conductivity of the
connection will never be reached.
General fixes for user to understand operation:
- Unhook the gate opener arm and move it to the half way position. Change the run time to a
low number (example: 2). Run the operator repeatedly.
- The operator should run one direction for a 2 count and then the other for a 2 count. After
you feel you have it following the run time correctly and swinging level and easily, then start
incrementally lengthening the run time.
- Eventually the run time will allow the operator arm to reach both limit switches and your setup
is complete.
Dual gate - Only one arm moves:
• Check your dual settings - if the dip switch is changed to dual with the power on the setting
will not take effect, turn the power off and then back on to have the dual dip switch take effect. NOTE: If one leaf of a dual gate ever reaches its end limit before the other leaf starts moving, the leaf that hasn’t started moving will not begin: correct this by cycling the gates again
and let it travel the full stroke or decrease the delay between leafs. The options are 0-9 seconds
delay.
• Set the #2 dip switch to the off position and run the gate as a single. Swap motor two for motor one and run the unit as a single. This will determine if the problem is the control board or
one of the arms.

Troubleshooting
Gate stops mid cycle:

Check the P3 setting and make sure this is high enough. In windy conditions the gate might
obstruct so it is best to increase the P3 setting to avoid this problem in the future.

Check the battery voltage. Proper voltage should be between 12.5 - 13.8 and drop no
more than a quarter of a volt under load.

Disconnect accessories that may be triggering the gate a second time. The most frequent
issues are from exit sensors or other automatic opening devices.

Disconnect the receiver. In rare cases the receiver causes the gate to stop randomly.

Check the setback. The setback of the operator is important to correct operation due to
leverage the arm will have on the gate.

Check the gate itself for any changes in levelness and make sure the hinges are lubricated
properly.
Gate moves slower than normal:

Check the battery voltage. Proper voltage should be between 12.5 - 13.8 and drop no
more than a quarter of a volt under load.
