www.CentSys.com
The D5-Evo or D5-Evo Low-Voltage is a domestic and light-industrial operator designed
to open and close sliding gates weighing up to 500kg. A custom-designed gearbox moulded
from robust engineering polymers, coupled to a powerful 12V DC motor, provides fast and
reliable automation for entrances to homes and small housing estates.
The system operates off a 12V battery housed inside the operator using a switch mode
charger to maintain the battery in a fully charged state. The battery provides critical power
failure protection. A solar supply can be used as an alternative energy source to charge the
battery.
GENERAL DESCIRPTION
2. General Description
Gate travel limits are managed by an opto-electronic system, comprising a gate-mounted
origin magnet and an internal rotary encoder. This system yields precise and repeatable
control over gate position.
Homeowners who do not have mains power at their gates can still enjoy all the amazing
features and functionality of this flagship product - without having to foot gigantic installation
bills - thanks to the D5-Evo Low-Voltage model.
Instead of a conventional charger which relies upon a high-voltage AC input, the D5-Evo
Low-Voltage comes with a rectifier/regulator which requires a low-voltage input of 15V to
19V AC; this can be easily supplied using a plug-in step-down transformer (typically installed
in dwelling) and saves the user having to route expensive high-voltage cables and obtaining
a certificate of compliance.
Advanced features of the D5-Evo or D5-Evo Low-Voltage logic controller include:
• Interactive graphical user interface via a backlit LCD display
• Automated setup of gate endpoints (limits)
• Fail-safe collision detection and auto reverse (adjustable sensitivity)
• Smooth, adjustable start/stop (ramp up/ramp down)
• Multiple operational modes
• Selectable, adjustable Autoclosing
• Pedestrian (partial) opening
• Positive Close Mode
• Independent safety inputs for opening and closing beams
• Automatic beam test for both open and closing beams
• Advanced beam alarm functions
• Advanced lightning/surge protection
• Timed courtesy light output
• Multiple pre-flashing modes
• Independently adjustable motor speed in both opening and closing directions
• Onboard NOVA Code-hopping radio receiver with full channel mapping capability
(limited to 500 buttons)

section 2
• Onboard ChronoGuard timer (patent pending) for auto-activation of various physical
inputs and outputs and time-barring of the same inputs and output including remote
controls
ICONS USED IN THIS MANUAL
Lightning Protection
The electronic controller utilises the same proven surge protection philosophy that is
used in all our products. While this does not guarantee that the unit will not be damaged
in the event of a lightning strike or power surge, it greatly reduces the likelihood of such
damage occurring. The earth return for the surge protection is provided via the mains
power supply earth and/or earth spike located next to the operator.
In order to ensure that the surge protection is effective, it is essential
that the unit is properly earthed.
Theft Protection
SECTION 2
While care has been taken in the design of the D5-Evo or D5-Evo Low-Voltage to
prevent unauthorised removal (theft) of the unit, an optional steel theft-resistant cage is
also available for added peace of mind.

PREPARATION OF SITE
6. Preparation of Site
6.1. General Considerations for the Installation
Always recommend the fitment of additional safety equipment such as safety edges
and safety beams, for additional protection against entrapment or other mechanical
risks.
Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation
Check that enough space is available for the gate operator with the gate in the
required open position.
Check for loose sandy soil if installing foundations, as the soil condition may require a
larger foundation.
Never fit the operator on the outside of the gate, where the public has access to it
Install the gate operator only if:
• It will not pose a hazard to the public
• There is sufficient clearance to a roadway and/or public thoroughfares
• The installation will meet all municipal and/or local authority requirements once
completed
• The gate mass, leaf width, allowable wind loading and application is within the operator
specifications
• The gate is in good working order, meaning:
• that it swings freely;
• does not move on its own if left in any position;
• it can be installed to have sufficient clearance between moving parts when
opening and closing to reduce the risk of personal injury and entrapment;
SECTION 6
• Pushbuttons or keyswitches, when required, can be positioned so that the gate is in
line of sight of the operator
page 18
www.CentSys.com
Fit endstops capable of stopping the gate at rated speed. Refer to specifications at the
beginning of this manual for the operating speed

PREPARATION OF SITE
6.3. Guide-rollers and anti-lift brackets
Guide-rollers must ensure that the gate is held vertically.
For improved safety, fit additional support posts to prevent gate from falling over if guide
rollers fail.
To prevent unauthorised access fit anti-lift brackets as shown
The gap between the anti-lift bracket and the gate must be less than 5mm.
Ensure that the gate cannot be lifted off the motor pinion with the anti-lift
bracket fitted.

Test the starting force of the gate as per the diagram. Use a pull scale to determine the
maximum amount of pull force required to get the gate moving.
Determine the running force of the gate by continuing to pull on the scale with just
sufficient force to keep it running and read off the maximum value in kgf shown on the
scale.
PREPARATION OF SITE
6.4. Starting and running forces
Where possible determine the gate mass.
Our warranty will be void if the pull force and/ or gate mass, exceed the operator
specification as below:
• Starting force - 30kgf
• Running (rated) force - 20kgf
• Maximum gate mass - 500kg

Do not attempt to run the operator without first filling the gearbox with
lubricant.
LUBRICATION
8. Lubrication
• The internal gearset of the D5-Evo is lubricated by means of an oil bath
• In order to prevent possible leakage during shipping, the unit is shipped with no oil
inside the gearbox. A bottle containing 80ml of a special synthetic oil is included with
the product, and this must be introduced before operating the product. (Product code:
OIL80ML0X0/H)
It is more convenient to introduce oil before bolting the unit down, as shown in
Figure 6.
The D5-Evo does not require routine oil changes. However in the event of
the unit losing oil due to stripping down or mechanical damage, the correct
replacement oil is Castrol SAF X0 75W-90 synthetic final drive lubricant.
If the gearbox is bolted down in the horizontal position during filling, the correct
level is reached when the oil level is in the flat section of the dipstick.
Emptying the 80ml bottle of oil provided will give sufficient oil.
Oil filling procedure
• Lift the cover of the
operator
• Remove the battery so
that you can gain access
to the coloured filler plug

Locate operator position
To ensure operator does not protrude into driveway, install base plate at least flush with
the driveway entrance.
Determine a suitable position and vertical height for the operator by considering Figures
7, 8 and 9.
It is typical to mount the rack above the pinion as shown in Figures 7, 9A and 10A for
each type of rack considered. However, in each case, Figures 8, 9B and 10B show the
rack mounted underneath.
If there is space to mount the rack underneath without fouling the ground as the
gate moves, the following are the pros and cons:
Pros
• The rack is more hidden from view
• It provides a very effective anti-lift bracket
• It ensures that as the gate beds in, the rack does not drop onto the pinion
loading the operator unnecessarily
Cons
• Rack teeth face up vertically potentially collecting dirt
• Custom bracket
• With careful selection of the rack configuration, and operator vertical height,
mounting of the rack could in some cases be greatly simplified
• If a theft-resistant cage is required, be sure to leave enough clearance from
pillars, etc.

14.1. Menu 2 - Safety (Collision Force)
14.1.1. Collision Force
If the gate is obstructed, the internal collision circuitry will activate.
The response of the system to a collision will vary, depending on the profile selected (Operating Standard, eg. ZA). Responses can vary from the gate
stopping, to the gate reversing. The Collision Force can be set from minimum to
maximum in five discrete steps.
A sixth step will disable collision sensing entirely, allowing maximum force to be
achieved. Under this condition, the motor will continue running until it stalls, at
which point a collision will be detected.
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14. Controller Features
This level should only be used if additional safety measures are
taken (eg. Infrared Safety Beams, etc.).
Collision Force can be set independently per direction of travel.
14.1.2. Collision Count
A counter monitors the number of collisions that the gate experiences before
it reaches the fully closed position. If the value exceeds the value set in the
Multiple Collision Counter, the Controller shuts down until the next valid
trigger is received. As an indication, the status LED will flash four times every two
seconds. The Multiple Collision fault indication will continue to flash indefinitely
or until a valid trigger has been received.
14.1.3. Alarm Output
After the preset collision count has been reached, an alarm is activated. The
system can be configured to operate one of the following outputs provided on the
controller:
•Onboard buzzer – emits a continuous tone
•Pillar / Courtesy light contact (potential-free normally-open contact, fuseprotected – 5A)
•Aux IO (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A, not fuse
protected)
•Safety beam common (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A,
not fuse-protected)
•Status LED output (operate up to three LEDs in parallel or interface with
multi-LED driver card, CP78)
14.1.4. LCK input as ESTOP
Allows the Lck (Holiday Lockout) input to be configured as an emergency stop
input. When activating the emergency stop, it will prevent the gate from moving,
and, if it is moving, it will immediately stop.
page 51
section 14
www.CentSys.com
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.2. Menu 3 - Autoclose
14.2.1. Autoclose Status
When enabled, the Autoclose feature has the function of automatically closing
the gate after a preset Autoclose time. The Autoclose feature is automatically
turned on when the Controller is set for Condominium Mode.
14.2.2. Autoclose Timer
The Autoclose time can be set anywhere from 1 to 255 seconds.
14.2.3. Autoclose Override
It is possible for the user to temporarily turn off Autoclose when the Mode of
Operation is Standard or Reversing. To activate Autoclose Override, the Trg
input must be activated and maintained for a period longer than the time set for
the Autoclose Override Time.
The gate response will be to start opening on the Trg trigger, and then to stop as
soon as the Autoclose Override time is reached. On clearing of the Trg input,
the gate will continue opening until fully open. The Autoclose feature is now
temporarily disabled and the gate will remain open indefinitely.
14.2.4. Autoclose Advanced Options
The conditions under which the gate will automatically close can be set within the
Advanced Autoclose options menu:
• Autoclose Fully Open - automatically closes the gate if it has reached the fully open position
• Autoclose Partly Open - automatically closes the gate if it is stopped
while opening, but before reaching the fully opened position
• Autoclose Partly Closed - automatically closes the gate if it is
stopped while closing, but before reaching the fully closed position
14.3. Menu 4 - Modes of Operation
It is possible to select the following Modes of Operation: Standard,
Condominium, and Reversing Mode. All modes are triggered by closing a
normally-open contact between the Trg input terminal and the Com terminal.
SECTION 14
14.3.1. Standard Mode
When stationary, a trigger impulse on Trg will cause the gate to either open or
close. On a moving gate, a trigger impulse on Trg will stop the gate.
The next impulse on Trg will cause the gate to reverse its direction of travel; i.e.
the action is start-stop-reverse.
page 52
www.CentSys.com
A trigger impulse on Trg will open the gate under all conditions. If it is closing,
it will stop and reverse to open. In this Mode of Operation, the only way to close
the gate is with the Autoclose feature, which is automatically activated when
Condominium Mode is selected.
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.3.2. Condominium Mode
14.3.3. Reversing Mode
A trigger impulse on Trg will reverse the direction of a moving gate. If it is
closing, it will stop and immediately begin opening. If it is opening, it will stop and
immediately begin closing.
14.4. Menu 5 - Run Profile
14.4.1. Positive Close Mode (PCM)
Setting Positive Close Mode to ON will allow the gate to drive up hard to the
closed endstop without causing the collision circuitry to operate. This feature
operates only during the last few millimetres of gate travel in Closing Mode.
14.4.2. PCM Push Force
The amount of force applied by the motor wen in PCM can be set as a percentage
of full motor force.
14.4.3. Pre-Open Delay
Allows a delay between a valid trigger signal being received and the gate
commencing movement in the opening direction. A warning light can be set to
activate during this delay. (Refer to pre-flash modes of the pillar light feature, for
more details).
14.4.4. Pre-close delay
Allows a delay between a valid trigger signal being received and the gate
commencing movement in the closing direction. The delay will also occur if the
gate is set to close automatically. A warning light can be set to activate during this
delay. (Refer to pre-flash modes of the pillar light feature, for more details). 14.4.5. Opening speed
Sets the maximum opening speed in metres per minute. This can be set from 10
to 22 metres per minute. Selecting maximum will move gate at maximum possible
speed.
14.4.6. Closing speed
www.CentSys.com
page 53
section 14
Sets the maximum closing speed in metres per minute. This can be set from 10
to 22 metres per minute. Selecting maximum will move the gate at maximum
possible speed.
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.4.7. Ramp-up Distance
Sets the ramp-up distance in centimetres of travel of the gate when starting.
This can be set from 10 centimetres to 10 metres in 1 centimetre steps.
14.4.8. Ramp-down Distance
Sets the ramp-down distance in centimetres of travel of the gate when stopping.
This can be set from 10 centimetres to 10 metres in 1 centimetre steps.
14.4.9. TRG Stop Distance
Sets the distance over which a moving gate will stop after a Trg input is received.
This can be set from 10 centimetres to 1 metre in 1 centimetre steps.
14.4.10. IRB Stop Distance
Sets the distance over which a moving gate will stop after an infrared safety beam
is broken. This can be set from 10 centimetres to 1 metre in 1 centimetre steps.
14.4.11. Crawl distance
Sets the final crawl distance in centimetres of travel of the gate when reaching an
endpoint. This can be set from 10 centimetres to 10 metres in 1 centimetre steps.
14.4.12. Torque limit
Sets the maximum torque delivered by the motor. The maximum setting is a value
of 15, while the minimum is four. This is useful in cases where limited push force
is required.
14.5. Menu 6 - IR beams
14.5.1. PIRAC
The Passive-Infrared Autoclose feature allows the gate to close automatically,
as soon as a vehicle or pedestrian has passed through the Closing Beam.
This security feature ensures that the gate stays open for the minimum amount of
time possible. If the Autoclose feature has been enabled, the system will react in
the following way:
• When the gate is triggered to open and nothing moves through or
interrupts the Closing Beam, the gate will open fully and stay open for
the period of time determined by the Autoclose Timer
SECTION 14
• However, if the Closing Beam is interrupted at any stage, while the gate
is opening or open, the gate will close immediately after the Closing
Beam is cleared
If the Autoclose feature has not been enabled then the gate will
remain open indefinitely. To close the gate, the Closing Beam must be
interrupted or the trigger button must be pressed
page 54
www.CentSys.com
If PIRAC is enabled, and a vehicle breaks the closing safety beam, the gate will
by default, continue to open. If the gate is required to stop at this point, the Stop
on Open function must be enabled. The stopping distance setting then determines
in centimetres how far the gate will run on after the beam has been broken. The
minimum setting is zero, which will cause the gate to stop immediately after the
closing beam has been broken. The maximum setting is determined by the length
of the gate.
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.5.2. Stop on Open
14.5.3. PIRAC Override
The PIRAC feature can be temporarily disabled in the following manner:
• With the gate in the closed or partially closed position, press and hold the
trigger button. The gate will begin to open and then stop. Continue holding the
trigger button until the gate begins to open again
• Release the trigger button
• The gate is now in PIRAC Override Mode
• To re-enable the PIRAC feature, press the trigger button briefly
• The time taken for the gate to come to a stop is equal to the Autoclose
Override time, or a minimum of two seconds if the Autoclose Override time is
off
• The time taken for the gate to open again after it has come to a stop is
approximately three seconds
• Example:
Autoclose Override time set to five seconds: Total time to temporarily
disable the PIRAC feature is approximately eight seconds (5s + 3s = 8
seconds)
Autoclose Override time set to off: Total time to temporarily disable the
PIRAC feature is approximately three seconds
14.5.4. IR Beam Test
(Only compatible with i5 Safety Beams; not compatible with Photon wireless
Safety Beams).
Automatically tests the Safety Beams before each gate cycle. (eg. as required
by CE.) In order for this feature to work, the power supply negative of the beam
transmitter must be wired to the Safe Com terminal of the Controller.
14.5.5. IRBO=IRBC
Configures the opening beam to act as a closing beam while the gates are closing.

CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.5.6. IR Beam Alarms
This feature allows the following alarms:
14.5.6.1. Ambush Alarm
Activates an alarm if either
the Opening or Closing Beams
have been continuously
interrupted for a pre-defined
time. The alarm will remain
activated while the beams are
interrupted.
For example, if a would-be
intruder covers the Safety
Beams so that when the gate
is opened, the gate will stay
open, the system will detect
this beam override taking
place and set off an alarm.

14.5.6.3. Break-in Alarm
Activates an alarm if the
Closing Beam on the outside
of the property is interrupted
while the gates are closed.
The alarm remains activated
while the Beams are broken,
and for a period of 30
seconds thereafter. This time
is fixed. Only active when
gate is fully closed.

The system can be configured to operate one of the following outputs provided on
the Controller:
• Oboard buzzer - emits a continuous tone
• Pillar / Courtesy Light contact (potential-free normally-open
contact, fuse-protected - 5A)
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.5.6.4. Alarm output
• Aux IO (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A, not fuseprotected)
• Safety beam common (this is an open collector drive, max current
draw 3A, not fuse-protected)
• Status LED output (operate up to three LEDs in parallel or interface
with multi- LED driver card, CP78)
14.6. Menu 7 - Pedestrian Opening
This feature is associated with the PED input on the Controller. When activating
this input, the system will open the gate to the Pedestrian Open position, and
then automatically close after the Pedestrian Autoclose time lapses. If the
PED connection to Com is maintained, then the gate will remain open, and when
the connection is broken, it will close after the Pedestrian Autoclose time has
expired.
The time taken for the gate to open to pedestrian is dependent on the pedestrian
Pre-open Delay and the time required for the gate to close from the pedestrian
position is dependent on the Pedestrian Pre-close Delay.
14.6.1. Pedestrian Open Position
Sets the maximum opening of the pedestrian gate in metres, in one centimetre
steps.
14.6.2. Pedestrian Autoclose Time
Sets the Autoclose time in seconds after the Pedestrian Opening. This time can be
set from zero seconds to four minutes in one second steps.
14.6.3. Pedestrian Pre-open Delay
Sets the time delay between the Pedestrian Opening input being activated, and
the gate actually opening. This enhances safety in cases where the pedestrian has
to reach through the gate in order to activate the pedestrian input. This delay can
be set from zero seconds to four minutes in one second steps
A Warning Light would typically be active during this delay.
page 57
section 14
www.CentSys.com
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.6.4. Pedestrian Pre-close Delay
Sets the time delay between the Pedestrian Autoclose timer expiring, and the
gate actually closing. This delay can be set from zero seconds to four minutes in one
second steps.
• A Warning Light would typically be active during this delay
• The Warning Light is any light wired to the Pillar Light contacts,
as described in Menu 8
14.8. Menu 8 - Courtesy/Pillar Light
This feature is associated with the Light connections on the Controller. Refer to
Page 42 and 43 of the manual for details on how to connect a Pillar or security
light to the Controller.
The Pillar Light circuit has multiple functions:
• It operates as a Courtesy Light and switches on for a selectable time
period every time the gate is activated
• The Courtesy Light can also be turned on for the same time period
by momentarily connecting the LIT terminal to the Com terminal via a
pushbutton
• The Courtesy Light can also be turned on permanently by connecting
the LIT terminal to the Com terminal via a pushbutton, for three
seconds.
A short pulse thereafter will switch the lights off. The status LED will
flash once every two seconds to indicate that the Courtesy Light is on
permanently. The abovementioned facility can also be achieved via
a remote learned to the system and mapped to the Courtesy Light
function from within the remotes menu
The gate will not open when using the LIT input.
• When the PED input is triggered, the Courtesy Light flashes for an
adjustable pre-flash time (0 to 255 seconds), before the pedestrian
gate opens.
14.8.1. Courtesy Light Time
The time that the Courtesy Light will remain activated can be set from four
seconds to ten hours in one second increments.
SECTION 14
14.8.2. Light Profile
The Courtesy Light can be selected to operate according to one of the following:
• Courtesy Light as explained earlier
• Pre-flashing Mode page 58
www.CentSys.com
• Mode A will turn on the Courtesy Light only while the gate is
moving
• Mode B will flash the Courtesy Light during the Pre-opening and
pre-closing Delays, as well as while the gate is moving
CONTROLLER FEATURES
• If Pre-flashing Mode A, B or C is selected, the behaviour of the Courtesy
Light will be as follows:
• Mode C will turn on the Courtesy Light during the Pre-opening and
Pre-closing Delays, as well as while the gate is moving
• I n these Pre-flashing Modes, the timed Courtesy Light functionality
is not available
14.9. Menu 9 - Chronoguard (TimePeriods)
ChronoGuard™ (a world first) is a powerful feature which has been added to the
new generation controllers. An integral Real Time Clock (RTC) is used to provide
time-based functionality, including the automatic activation or time-barring of
specific controller inputs, and the time-barring of specified remote control buttons
used together with the onboard NOVA rolling code-hopping.
The RTC will keep time for a minimum of one hour without any power.
14.9.1. Time-periods
A Time-period is defined by a start and end date and time. Up to one hundred
Time-periods can be defined. A Time-period can be a once-off event, or can be set
to repeat on a weekly or annual basis. The weekly repeat can be chosen to occur
on every day of the week, weekdays only, weekends only, or any specific day.
The minimum duration of a time period is one minute. Once-off Time-period have
the highest precedence, followed by annual and then weekly. When appropriate,
a “Tp” icon will appear on the display to indicate that a Time-period is active.
14.9.2. Auto activations (Auto function)
The following controller inputs can be set to activate automatically during a
Time-period:
• Free-exit (FRX)
• Pedestrian opening (Ped)
• Holiday Lockout (Lck)
• Closing beam (IRBC)
• Courtesy light control (Aux)
During the relevant Time Period, the selected input will be activated.
Where appropriate, the diagnostic LED of the relevant input will illuminate.
• Auxiliary output (Aux IO)
14.9.3. Time-barring
www.CentSys.com
page 59
section 14
The following controller output can be set to activate automatically during a
Time-period:
CONTROLLER FEATURES
Time-barring of inputs is divided into physical inputs and RF inputs (inputs
mapped to a NOVA code-hopping transmitter button.
The following physical inputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating)
during a Time-period:
• Trigger (Trg)
• Pedestrian opening (Ped)
• Free-exit (FRX)
• Holiday Lock (Lck)
• Courtesy light control (Aux)
The following physical outputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating)
during a Time-period:
• Courtesy (pillar) light relay (Light)
• Auxiliary output (Aux IO)
The following RF inputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating) during a
Time-period:
• Trigger (Trg)
• Pedestrian opening (Ped)
• Free-exit (FRX)
• Holiday Lock (Lck)
• Courtesy light control (Aux)
• Exclusions
• Time-barring of a NOVA code-hopping transmitter is specified at the
time of coding the transmitter into the system. Once an RF input is
defined as time-barred, any time-barred transmitter associated with
that input will be time-barred during the relevant Time-period
• If a physical or RF input is currently time-barred, any attempt to
activate it will be acknowledged by a short beep of the onboard
buzzer. The input, however, will not activate
SECTION 14
Exclusions are used to prevent scheduled Time Periods from occurring at specific
times (e.g. public holidays). While time-barring can be used to achieve a similar
end, exclusions can also be used to exclude time-barring itself. Each exclusion
consumes one Time-period. Exclusions have the highest precedence, followed by
time-barring and then auto-activations (auto function).

If the backup module is used to restore the settings of a different
D5-Evo or D5-Evo Low-Voltage operator, then the gate limits setup
procedure must be performed again.
CONTROLLER FEATURES
14.11. Menu 11 - Remote Controls
The controller is capable of learning up to 500 NOVA code-hopping remote control
buttons. Each transmitter can have up to four buttons.
Benefits of the Shift Button system:
• It is possible to artificially increase the number of buttons of a multibutton remote control by using a two-button combination
• One of the buttons is used as a Shift Button to allow the other
buttons to be used again in combination with this button. In other
words, the user will press and hold the Shift Button, before
pressing one of the other buttons to create a new button
• The Shift Button cannot be used as a button on its own, it must
always be used in combination with the other buttons
Benefits of the Shift Button system:
• Use of the Shift Button system allows a three-button remote
control to gain an extra button and operate four functions and
likewise a four- button remote control gains two extra buttons and
can operate six functions
• Another benefit of using the Shift Button system is that it
requires both hands to operate the two-button combination.
This prevents the user from accidentally enabling sensitive functions
such as Holiday Lockout on the Controller
14.11.1. Press Valid Button
If the Remote Controls Menu has been locked as discussed later, only by
pressing a button of a remote control learned into the system, can the Remote
Controls Menu be accessed.
14.11.2. Add Remote
Any button can be set to control the Trigger, Pedestrian, Free-exit, Holiday
Lockout or Courtesy Light Control (LIT) inputs. When adding remote controls,
it is recommended that a record be kept of the ID number allocated by the system
to each respective remote control and the person to whom the remote control is
given. This is necessary should selective deletion be required at a later stage.
SECTION 14
14.11.3. Delete Remote
Remote controls can be deleted at any stage according to one of the following
methods:
• Delete Remote by ID
Each remote control can be deleted individually according to its unique
ID. To facilitate this, a record of the ID and the person to whom the ID
has been assigned must have been made at the time of learning the
remote control into the system. The remote control is not required for
this operation
page 62
www.CentSys.com
CONTROLLER FEATURES
• Delete Remote Button
The operation of a button of a particular remote control can be deleted.
For example, it allows the Holiday Lockout function set on one remote
button of a remote control to be cleared, without affecting the other
operations that the same remote control performs. The remote control
is required for this operation
• Delete Remote by Button
Use this procedure to remove the remote control from the system.
All button functionality will be removed. The remote control is required
for this operation
• Delete not Present
Allows for transmitters that have not been used within a selectable time
period to be removed from the system. The Time-period can be set
from one hour to seven days, in one hour increments.
14.11.4. Delete all Remotes
Clears the entire memory. All transmitters will be removed.
14.11.5. Edit Remote Button
Change the function on one remote to perform another function. For example,
button one’s function is to open the gate completely. To change this, use edit
remote button, select PED, and button one of the same remote will now only open
the gate to the pedestrian setting.
14.11.6. Autolearn
Allows a selectable Time-period to be set, during which any specific button, when
pressed, will be learned to a specific function. The function itself will also be
activated when the button is pressed. After the Time-period has expired Autolearn
is disabled, and no further buttons will be learned. The Time-period can be set
from one hour to seven days in one hour increments.
14.11.7. Tx menu Locked
Allows the remote controls menu to be locked, preventing the unauthorised
addition of new transmitters to the system. Once enabled, the remote controls
menu can only be accessed by pressing a valid transmitter button.
14.11.8. Onboard receiver
The onboard NOVA code-hopping receiver can be disabled in the unlikely event
that it causes interference with an existing external receiver.

DESCRIPTION OF TERMINAL FUNCTIONS
SECTION 16
16. Description of Terminal Functions
12V+
Positive battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as + or red (right-hand
battery)
12V-
Negative battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as - or black (left-hand
battery)
Motor
Motor Output - connects to the thick blue motor wire
Motor
Motor Output - connects t the thick black motor wire
Aux IO
The Aux IO terminal provides an open collector output which can be used
for alarm or auto function purposes. If the collision alarm output or the
IRB alarm output has been configured to Aux IO, then the negative of the
alarm device must be connected to this terminal. The positive of the alarm
device must be connected to the Aux 12V Out terminal. Similarly, if Aux
IO is auto-activated via a ChronoGuard auto function Time-period, the
device being switched (typically a 12V relay) must be powered from the
Aux 12V Out terminal, and have its negative switched by Aux IO. If the
Aux IO has not been selected as either an alarm indicator output or autoactivated output, the Aux IO terminal will behave as a Com termination
point. All trigger signals, etc., have their return path to one of the Com
terminals.
Com
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc. have their return
path to one of the om terminals.
Status
External gate status indicator. (A low-current output signal.) An output
terminal which provides a low current, drive (approx. 4,5V DC, 20mA)
to a LED which can be used to indicate the gate status remotely. If more
than three LEDs are required it is necessary to fit the CP78 multi-LED
driver card. For more details on the feedback about the status of the gate
provided by the status LED refer to Section 17.
Aux
Activates the Pillar Light Relay. (A normally-open potential-free input).
Momentarily connecting this input to Com will cause the light relay to
energize for a period of time as set in the courtesy light timer menu.
If the connection is made for a period exceeding three seconds the
pillar light relay will latch and remain latched indefinitely until a new
momentary connection to Com is given.
FRX
Free-exit input. (A normally-open potential-free input). Momentarily
connecting this input to Com will cause a gate which is closed, or closing,
to open or re-open. If the gate is open, or opening, the signal has no
effect other than to reset the Autoclose timer (if selected). Free-exit (FRX)
never initiates a closing cycle. The only way to close a gate, if only the
FRX input is used, is to activate the Autoclose feature on the controller.
page 66
www.CentSys.com
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc. have their return
path to one of the Com terminals.
PED
Pedestrian opening input. (A normally-open potential-free input).
Momentarily connecting this input to COM will cause the gate to open to
the pedestrian open position. For more information refer to the pedestrian
feature in Section 14.
TRG
Trigger input. (A normally-open potential-free input.) Momentarily
connecting this input to COM will cause the gate to open, close or stop,
depending on the operating mode selected. For more information, see the
Autoclose feature and Modes of Operation.
LCK/STP
Holiday Lockout or gate stop input. (A normally-closed potential-free
input). For as long as a connection between this input and COM is
maintained the controller will behave normally, but when this connection
to COM is broken all inputs are inhibited.
DESCRIPTION OF TERMINAL FUNCTIONS
Com
• If this input is enabled while the gate is moving or in the open
position, it will only activate and inhibit operation of all the inputs
when the gate is back in the closed position
• This input can be configured as an emergency stop input.
Refer to Section 14, Menu 2 for details
If the Lck function is not required a link must be fitted between
LCK and COM1(refer to note on page 68)
Safety
Open
Opening beam safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input). As
long as a connection between this input and Common is maintained the
controller will behave normally. When this connection is broken it will
prevent the gate from opening if it is stationary, and will stop and close
the gate if it is opening. This input has no effect if the gate is closing.
If the Safety Open and reverse functions are not required a link
must be fitted between Safety Open and Safe Common for the
controller to operate normally1
Safety
Close
Closing beam safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input). As
long as a connection between this input and Common is maintained, the
controller will behave normally. When this connection is broken, it will
prevent the gate from closing if it is stationary, and will stop and open the
gate if it is closing. This input has no effect if the gate is opening. www.CentSys.com
page 67
section 16
If the Safety Close function is not required a link must be fitted
between Safety Close and Safe Common for the controller to
operate normally1
DESCRIPTION OF TERMINAL FUNCTIONS
Aux 12V
Output
Auxiliary power connection. Provides +12V DC supply for auxiliary
equipment such as a radio receiver, photo cells, etc. It is electronically
limited to 1A.
Safe
Common
Used for switching the power supply to the safety beams. If automatic
beam testing is required, the negative power supply connection of the
beam transmitter only must be wired to this point. In addition, the beam
test circuit must be switched on via Menu 6. See Section 14
Light/
light
Pillar light connection. These two terminals provide a normally-open
potential-free contact which is generally used to switch on a pillar light
(courtesy light). This contact is fuse-protected – refer to Section 3 for fuse
specifications.
SECTION 16
1. When setting up the controller for the first time or after a full reset back to factory
default, has been performed, the system will electronically override the Safety Inputs
and allow the system to function without the links.
However, if safeties are connected to either or both inputs thereafter, there must be a
normally-closed circuit maintained for the system to operate correctly.
i.e. if beams are fitted and then removed, the circuit which is affected must be replaced
with a wire link to create the normally-closed circuit.

FAULT FINDERS GUIDE
18. Fault-finders Guide
Problem
Possible faults
• Fuse is blown – Check 30A ATO fuse, and replace if necessary
• Lck (Holiday lockout) input activated. Green Lck light should
be on
• IRBC/IRBO (IR beams) inputs activated
• IRBC - gate will not close once open; IRBO - gate
will not open once close
• Green IRBC/IRBO lights should be on - check
cabling and Aux 12V Out
• Latching input on TRG or FRX
Gate does not move
• Both TRG and FRX lights must be off for gate to operate
• Check for an auto-activation (auto function) on FRX and
Trg inputs. Refer to diagnostic screen with matrix showing
different auto-activations (auto function) and time-barring
functions on the different inputs
• Check the battery condition with procedure A: Low battery
voltage condition, later in this section
• If status light flashes four times or there is a “Max Collisions”
indication on the LCD display, then the operator is in Multiple
Collision Mode. If required, check with procedure B: False
collision detection, later in this section
• If the problem persists, the main controller might be faulty
• Check the battery condition with procedure A: Low battery
voltage condition, especially if the status light flashes three
times or there is a “Battery Low” indication on the LCD display
Gate moves a short
distance, and then
stops
• Check for false collisions with procedure B: False collision
detection, later in this section (status light could also flash
four times if the number of detected collisions exceeded
the Collision counter feature value) and LCD indicates “Max
Collisions”
• Intermittent IRBC/IRBO signals. Check that the voltage
applied to the beams is appropriate
• Spurious trigger. Intermittent short due to possible moisture
on the FRX or Trg inputs. Monitor FRX or Trg LED’s
SECTION 18
• If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
Gate starts closing,
then stops and
re-opens
• Check collision sensitivity and other causes with procedure B:
False collision detectio

Possible faults
• Besides a faulty controller, which will be considered last, the
only components that could cause this symptom are a missing
origin, or and most unlikely, a faulty DOSS sensor
FAULT FINDERS GUIDE
Problem
• However, initially before the gate overrides its limits, if the
origin is not detected, the controller will automatically start
beeping when the gate is running, but it will allow normal
operation
• Check for the following:
• Check that the origin marker is correctly positioned as shown
on pages 33 to 34
• Check if the gate origin has accidentally moved. If so, reset
the limits as directed on page 35
Gate repeatedly
overrides
its end-of-travel
limits
• Check that the DOSS sensor harness is properly plugged
into the magnetic origin switch, the DOSS sensor and the
controller
• Carefully check the condition of the harness - look out for any
bad crimp joints between the wires and the connectors on the
harness
• Check that the magnetic origin switch is mechanically
switching. While in manual mode, slide the gate backwards
and forwards so that the magnet passes the switch each
time. Listen out for a distinctive click as the switch operates.
Also confirm the direction of the magnet using the relevant
diagnostic screen (e.g. magnet on the left or magnet on the
right)
• Check that the magnetic origin switch is securely clipped into
the housing
• Unclip and lift out the DOSS sensor and check that there is no
evidence of oil on the sensor eyes or ant/dirt ingress
• If the problem is not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
• Latching receiver on Trg would activate the Autoclose Override
feature
• Long pulse on Trg would activate the Autoclose Override
feature.
Unreliable autoclose
• Faulty IRBC Beam signal
• Intermittent power loss, check for low voltages with procedure
A: Low battery voltage condition

page 75
section 18
• If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
FAULT FINDERS GUIDE
Problem
Possible faults
• Intermittent fault on Ped (Pedestrian) input. Check wiring, and
keyswitch/keypad operation
Gate opens to
• Check Procedure B: False collision detection
pedestrian and closes
• If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
Gate takes a few
seconds before it
opens
to pedestrian
• By default the motor would delay opening to pedestrian for
two seconds. This time can be changed by altering the value
of the Pedestrian pre-open delay feature - refer to Section 21,
Menu 7.3
• There is a continuous Ped signal; the Ped light will be
on continuously. (The Ped light and signal must turn on
momentarily for the gate to close after a pedestrian signal)
Gate opens to
pedestrian and
stays open
• The Pedestrian feature operated via the onboard receiver
could have been inadvertently set to be latching. Refer to the
remotes diagnostic screen for assistance
• If an external receiver is operating the Pedstrian input, check
for an accidental latching contact , or a faulty keyswitch/
keypad
• If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
• The fault is with the receiver
• Internal receiver could be locked
Gate opens from the
intercom, but not
via remote control
• Check remotes are correctly learned to the receiver. Refer to
remotes diagnostic screen for verification
• The onboard receiver could be faulty
• If an external receiver is used, check:
• the wiring between the receiver and control card
• that the receiver has power
• that the receiver is not faulty
SECTION 18
• that the remotes are learned correctly to receiver

Status light flashes three times – LCD indicates “Battery Low”
If the battery voltage is less than 13.5V, the motor would not operate at all. For any
other voltage, the battery could still be the cause of the problem. Is the battery being
properly charged?
FAULT FINDERS GUIDE
18.1. Procedure A - Low battery voltage condition
• Check the “mains present” icon on the main diagnostic screen or switch to the battery
charger diagnostic screen and check the charger voltage – right-hand value. This
should indicate approxemately 13.8V
• Check that the mains power is turned on (measure 230V AC on the mains connector
for the D5-Evo, or 15-19V AC / 12 - 26V DC for the D5-Evo Low-Voltage)
• Check that the red LED on the side of the charger is lit
• Check the charger’s supply fuse (D5-Evo charger – 3A)
• Check that the white battery charger connector is making proper contact
• Check the condition of the battery leads, terminals and connectors. Look for and
correct all loose connections and signs of corrosion
• The battery might be discharged. Measure the battery voltage with the charger
connected, if the voltage is below 13.5V then the battery is discharged. The number
of opening cycles per hour may be excessive, thus discharging the battery. Refer to
the Trip Counter diagnostic screen for assistance. Charge the battery if required
• Charger might be faulty. Disconnect the battery, and measure the voltage on the
battery leads. It must be between 13.6V and 13.8V. If not, replace the charger
• Battery might be old, and might have to be replaced. If in doubt, test as follows:
• Check that the battery is charged, by ensuring that the battery voltage is
above 13.5V with the charger connected. (If the battery is in a good condition
it would probably pass the test without being fully charged)
• Disconnect the charger from the battery
• Remove the DC Motor leads from the DC Controller
• Apply the DC motor leads directly to the battery, while measuring the battery
voltage
• For the D5-Evo Low-Voltage, ensure that the step-down transformer in
dwelling is plugged in and working.
First make sure that the moving gate will not pose any danger.
• If the battery voltage drops to below 13.5V, then the battery must be replaced
www.CentSys.com
page 77
section 18
Before replacing the battery, measure the charging voltage on the battery leads
with the battery disconnected. Voltage must be between 13.6V and 13.8V.
If not, replace the charger.
FAULT FINDERS GUIDE
18.2. Procedure B - False collision detection
Status light flashes four times to indicate that the number of collisions have exceeded the
Collision Counter feature value. LCD screen indicates “Max Collisions”
With the operator in manual mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
• Badly running gate, or something physically obstructing the gate. Check along the
entire travel of the gate
• Rack is not pressing down onto pinion
• Bad rack joints
• Wheels are not seized or running badly
• Top guide-rollers are not restricting the gate
• No dirt on rail
• No physical damage to the rail
• Wheel catching side of pinion
With the operator in normal mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
• Gate is not hitting the endstop
Do a general inspection of system, check the following and correct if necessary:
• No ants, dirt, oil or water in and around the DOSS sensor
• DC motor wires for loose connections
• DOSS sensor wire harness is securely plugged into controller
• DOSS sensor is securely clipped into the housing
• If the problem is not solved, replace the DOSS sensor and main controller
