Please take special note of critical aspects that MUST be adhered to in order to prevent injury. IMPORTANT Safety instructions Even if you have owned and used an automated gate before, we suggest that you read through the safety instructions below very carefully. Although years of thought have been put into every CENTURION product – and your safety is our top priority – accidents do happen. So, please make sure that you fully understand the following safety requirements before using your automated gate. Before you attempt to use your new gate operator for the first time, you should know: & How to operate the Manual Release thumbwheel & How the Obstruction Detection System and all other safety features work & All the safety considerations that come with operating an automated gate – and the importance of explaining these considerations to everyone who uses the operator DOs and DON’Ts 1. Do not activate your gate opener unless you can see it. Make sure that no people, pets or any other obstructions are in your gate’s area of travel. 2. NO ONE MAY CROSS THE PATH OF A MOVING GATE. Our advanced obstruction detection technology is designed to stop your gate in its tracks should a child or pet be in the way. However this is a reactive system and should never supersede proactive measures of preventing people, pets or vehicles from moving into the path of a moving gate. 3. Check if the obstruction detection system and safety devices for correct operation are in working order once a month. 4. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. 5. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. 6. Always be mindful of where your limbs are when dealing with moving parts – you don’t want your fingers to be pinched (or worse). 7. Keep your gate controls (remote controls) in a safe place. You don’t want anyone getting in uninvited. 8. Look after your gate and it will look after you. Ensure that all working areas are debris-free and that your automated system is well-maintained and your CENTURION operator should last you a very long time. 9. Ensure that any technician that works on your operator has been trained by CENTURION. 10. This product was designed and built strictly for the use indicated in this documentation. Any other use, not expressly indicated here, could compromise the good condition/operation of the product and/or be a source of danger. 11. Centurion Systems does not accept any liability caused by improper use of the product, or for use other than that for which the automated system was intended. page 1 Introduction This User Guide contains all the information you need to configure and operate your new D2 Turbo Sliding Gate Operator. From safety instructions to basic principles of operation and an in-depth description of your CENTURION product’s many features and functions, by the time you have finished reading this guide you will have learnt how to make the most out of your gate operator. Even Basic Maintenance is covered but, in the unlikely event that your CENTURION product malfunctions, rather leave it to the professionals and contact your installer or nearest Centurion Systems branch (contact details listed on the back page) for prompt assistance. D2 Turbo overview The D2 Turbo has various useful features and functions, all easily accessible from a user-friendly dial-based setup system. Multiple Modes of Operation,Speed Profiles, an onboard multichannel receiver – you name it, the D2 Turbo's got it. The integral 12V 5Ah battery (charged by an internal 220V charger) comes with full battery backup and advanced lightning protection so you can always get in – even when the power is out. For increased power capacity you can install a larger, 7Ah battery (your D2 Turbo was designed to cater for this), or you can even use a solar panel to power it. (see the section on Solar Panels, for more details about solar charging) The D2 Turbo is designed to open and close domestic sliding gates weighing up to 250kg. It must not be installed or used to automate the entrances of townhouses complexes, housing estates, commercial or industrial properties. The gearbox, moulded from a high-tech engineering polymer not only looks good, but is corrosion-free and guarantees that even if you live at the coast, your D2 Turbo will just keep on going. For your security, the internal gearset has a self-locking action so forced entry is not an option for would-be burglars. An optional Theft-resistant Cage and Theft-resistant Locking Nut makes intruders’ lives even more difficult. For your safety, our revolutionary limit switch mechanism monitors the speed and location of your gate for accurate position control and sensitive anti-crushing protection. page 2 Identification of parts 1.

Disengaging the gearbox/drive To manually override the operator you will need to: Open the camlock cover, insert the camlock key and rotate it 90° clockwise (the operator cover can also be removed at this stage if so desired). This will allow for the rotation of the Manual Release thumbwheel. By turning the Manual Release thumbwheel 90° counterclockwise until it clicks, the motor pinion will be put into ‘Manual Mode’. FIGURE 2 2.2. Re-engaging gearbox/drive To re-engage the drive mechanism of the operator, turn the Manual Release thumbwheel 90° clockwise until it clicks. Once you have re-engaged the drive mechanism don’t forget to lock the camlock by inserting the key and rotating it 90? counter-clockwise – this will help prevent unauthorised tampering with the operator. By locking the camlock, the Manual Release thumbwheel cannot be moved from ‘locked’ to ‘unlocked’ and vice versa. FIGURE 3 page 4 3. Features and functions Introduction The D2 Turbo sliding gate operator's advanced functions are controlled by an intelligent micro-controller based electronic controller. Features and functions FIGURE 4 3.1. Gate operation 3.1.1. Full Gate Opening The NOVA remote controls (with KeeloqTM encryption) supplied with the D2 Turbo are used to operate the gate. However, most automatic gate installations are also fitted with an intercom, which provides for communication between the house or building and the gate. The handset is usually fitted with a gate pushbutton, which when pressed, sends a signal to the D2 Turbo controller to operate the gate. FIGURE 5 3.1.2. Modes of Operation To operate the gate to open fully, the D2 Turbo has three modes to choose from depending on the application. Only one mode can be selected at any given time. & 18.104.22.168. Standard Mode Standard Mode is the most commonly used mode for domestic applications as it allows full control of the gate. Press the remote control button for approximately one second to get the gate in motion. If the remote control button is pressed while the gate is page 5 moving, the gate will stop. Press the remote control button again and the gate will go into reverse. Autoclose (page 7) and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9) can be used together with Standard Mode. Features and functions & 22.214.171.124. Open Only Mode This mode is ideal for increased safety in multi-user single dwelling applications. If you select Open Only Mode, your gate will open when you press the button of the remote control or the gate pushbutton on the intercom – but pressing the button again while the gate is opening will be ignored. It will not cause the gate to stop or to reverse. Only the internal Autoclose feature described on page 7 of this User Guide, which is automatically enabled, will close the gate if you have selected Open Only Mode. If the button of the remote control or intercom gate release is pressed while the gate is closing, the gate will immediately reopen. The gate cannot be stopped in a midway position and will therefore always close. If the button is pressed while the gate is in the open position, the Autoclose timer (page 7) will be reset. We highly recommended that a pair of safety beams are installed across the gate entrance and connected to the closing safety beam input on the D2 Turbo if you select Open Only Mode. This will prevent the gate from closing on people, pets or vehicles. (page 11) PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9) can be used with Open Only Mode. & 126.96.36.199. Reversing Mode Reversing Mode offers slightly more security than Standard Mode as it allows you to close your gate quickly by pressing, for instance, your remote control just as you drive through the gate to prevent children or pets running out - or anybody getting in behind you. When pressing the button of the remote control or the gate pushbutton on the intercom, your gate will be set in motion. If you press the button again, the gate will move in the opposite direction. So, if the gate is opening and you press the button, the gate will stop and immediately start to close (and vice versa). Autoclose (page 7) and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 9) can be used with Reversing Mode. To configure any of the operating modes please refer to the section, ‘Customising the Functions and Settings’ on page 24. page 6 3.1.3. Automatic closing (Autoclose Mode) The D2 Turbo has the facility to automatically close the gate after it has opened (Autoclose Mode). The time that the gate stays open is by default fifteen seconds, but this time period can be set to be five, ten, fifteen, thirty, or forty-five seconds. As described in the previous section, Autoclose Mode is selectable with Standard Mode (page 5) and Reversing Mode (page 6) - by default the function is Off. However, Autoclose is automatically enabled in Open Only Mode. CENTURION highly recommends that if you select Autoclose Mode in order to prevent the gate from closing on people, pets or vehicles, a pair of safety beams are installed across the gate entrance and connected to the Closing Safety Beam input on the D2 Turbo. & 188.8.131.52. Autoclose Override Autoclose Mode can be overridden in Standard and Reversing Modes by pressing and holding the button of the remote control or intercom gate release for no less than three seconds. The gate response will be to start opening and then to stop as soon as the Autoclose Override feature is activated. On releasing the button, the gate will continue opening until fully open. Your gate will stay open until you use the remote control or intercom gate release to close the gate. The D2 Turbo will then revert to normal Autoclose operation. Press and hold remote control pushbutton; gate will start to open STOP Gate stops to indicate that Autoclose Override has been engaged The Autoclose function cannot be overridden in Only Open Mode. To enable/disable the Autoclose function and/or change the Autoclose time, please refer to the section, 'Customising the Functions and Settings' on page 22. Release pushbutton; gate will continue to open fully and stay open FIGURE 6 page 7 Features and functions 3.1.4. Pedestrian Opening The Pedestrian Opening input opens the gate just wide enough for a pedestrian to pass through the opening. Features and functions A second button on your remote control can be used to operate the Pedestrian Opening function. You can also connect a keyswitch or keypad mounted adjacent the gate entrance to operate this function. FIGURE 7 There is a default two second delay before the gate opens. This is to warn the pedestrian that the gate is about to move. FIGURE 8 It will also give the person enough time to move their hand away if they are reaching through the gate to operate a keyswitch or a keypad*. If the Courtesy Light* (page 13) is connected to the D2 Turbo's control card, it will flash indicating that the gate will open approximately one metre. The gate will close after a default time of five seconds. The gate can be kept open by keeping a trigger on the input (keeping your key in the keyswitch, for example) – once removed the gate will close after the fixed five seconds. If a Closing Safety Beam (page 12) is fitted and the beam is broken while the gate is closing, the gate will stop and open to the Pedestrian Opening position. The gate will remain open while the beam is broken and the five second (fixed) Autoclose Delay will only commence once the beam has been cleared. * For safety reasons it is recommended that all pedestrian keyswitches and keypads are installed on the opposite end of the gate to where the operator is installed. page 8 3.1.5. PIRAC Mode (Beam Autoclose Mode) - optional This mode can only be used if a Closing Safety Beam (page 12) is fitted. This mode can be used in conjunction with any of the Operating Modes Standard, Open Only and Reversing Modes. Gate opening With PIRAC Mode enabled, your gate will close as soon as you have driven through and passed the Safety Beam – giving intruders no time to follow behind you. Beam FIGURE 9 If Autoclose Mode is enabled and the gate has been opened but nothing moves through the Closing Safety Beam, the gate will stay fully open for the duration of the Autoclose timer before closing. However, if something passes through the closing beam the gate will close immediately. Gate opening Beam broken FIGURE 10 If something crosses the beams while the gate is opening, the gate will continue to open until the beam is cleared. Once the beam is cleared, the gate will stop and close. If the gate has reached its fully open position, it will stop and remain open until the beam has been cleared. Gate closing Beam re-made FIGURE 11 To enable/disable PIRAC Mode, please refer to the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 26. page 9 Features and functions 3.1.6. Holiday Lockout Mode This feature completely immobilises the operator and deactivates all inputs so nobody can get into your property while you are away. Features and functions One of the buttons on your remote control can be used to switch the Holiday Lockout function as well as a latching keyswitch or keypad mounted adjacent the gate entrance, accessible from the outside of the property. When Holiday Lockout is enabled, any of the access control devices that are connected to the D2 Turbo will be rendered inactive. Not even tampering with the keyswitch or keypad on the outside of the property will open the gate – this is particularly useful if you intend leaving your property unattended for extended periods of time. FIGURE 12 If Holiday Lockout is enabled while the gate is moving or in the open position, it will only activate once the gate is back in the closed position. If somebody tries to open the gate via a valid remote control, keypad code, etc. and Holiday Lockout is enabled, the onboard buzzer will emit one beep periodically for 30 seconds to confirm that the gate has been disabled using this feature. To enable / disable the Holiday Lockout Mode feature, please refer to the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 19. 3.1.7. Positive Close Mode Positive Close Mode is intended for applications where the gate must close fully against the gate end post for security reasons – such as ensuring proper contact of a switch on the gate that feeds power to an electric fence. This feature operates only during the last few millimetres when the gate closes. It is recommended that a rubber strip be fixed to the front edge of the gate to reduce the noise when the gate closes against the end post. To enable / disable the Positive Close Mode feature, please refer to the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 28. page 10 3.1.8. Speed Profiles There’s no substitute for speed! The D2 Turbo can be set to run on either a High Speed Mode (default) which is approximately 24 metres per minute, or a Low Speed Mode which is approximately 16 metres per minute. High speeds offer a greater level of convenience and security, while slower speeds ensure increased levels of safety at the gate. To change the Speed Profile, please refer to the section, 'Customising the Functions and Settings' on page 29. 3.1.9. Anti-crushing Sensitivity The D2 Turbo incorporates a sensitive electronic anti-crushing technology that responds in the events that a person or vehicle obstructs your gate. Using this technology, the typical response for an opening gate is to immediately stop and retract a short distance, while a closing gate will stop and fully re-open. Collision Sensing can be set to either High Sensitivity or Low Sensitivity. Generally High Sensitivity should be used, but in instances where the gate runs very poorly Low Sensitivity can be selected. FIGURE 13 & 184.108.40.206. Collision Count A counter monitors the number of collisions the gate experiences before it fully closes. If the number exceeds the default value of four, the gate will stop. The Status LED (page 14) will flash four times every second until a remote control or intercom gate release pushbutton is pressed. Please refer to Gate Status Indication (page 14) for more information on this diagnostic device. To change the Sensitivity setting, please refer to the section, 'Customising the Functions and Settings' on page 30. 3.1.10. Safety Beams (optional, but recommended feature) It is always recommended to connect additional safety mechanisms to the D2 Turbo instead of relying only on the inherent anti-crushing protection, referred to above. page 11 Features and functions The typical device is a pair of Infrared Safety Beams which can detect the presence of any vehicle, person or pet that breaks the beam and communicates back to the D2 Turbo that something is in the path of the gate. Features and functions Another option is an Inductive Loop Detector, which is mounted in the ground, adjacent to the gate, which is very effective at detecting vehicles or the like, but not persons or pets. & 220.127.116.11. Closing Safety Beams Closing Safety Beams provide additional protection against your gate closing on people or vehicles. If the beam is broken while the gate is opening, the gate will continue to open. If the gate is open, the gate cannot be closed if the beam is broken, and if the gate is closing when the beam is broken, it will stop and reopen. FIGURE 14 If you select the Autoclose (page 7) feature, the gate will remain open if the beam is broken and it will only close after the set Autoclose time has expired when the beam has cleared. Please contact CENTURION for more information on suitable protection devices. & 18.104.22.168. Opening Safety Beams These beams prevent your gate from opening if an object, person or pet is in the way. If the beam is broken while the gate is closed, the gate will not open. If the gate is opening and the beams are broken, it will stop then close. If the gate is closing while the beams are broken, it will continue to close. FIGURE 15 page 12 3.1.11. Courtesy (Pillar) Light Timer (optional feature) Courtesy (Pillar) Lights can be connected through the D2 Turbo controller if an adequate* 220V power supply is available at the gate. The lights will switch on every time the gate is given a signal to operate (the trigger could be a remote control button, or the gate pushbutton on an intercom. Features and functions The lights will stay on for a fixed period of two minutes, then automatically turn off. FIGURE 16 The purpose is to bathe your entrance with light when you open the gates and increase your security as you drive into your property – it also saves electricity as the lights only come on when you use the gate motor. Using the Pedestrian Opening feature will cause the Courtesy (Pillar) Lights to flash three times before the gate opens. *The cabling that supplies the 220V supply to the D2 Turbo must be suitably sized to carry the additional load of the courtesy (pillar) lights. & 22.214.171.124. Courtesy (Pillar) Lights act as Warning Light These modes replace the standard Courtesy Light feature & 126.96.36.199A. Pre-flashing Modes Depending on your requirements or local regulations, your gate automation system can provide for two different safety Pre-flashing Modes which will activate the gate’s pillar lights if fitted and connected to the D2 Turbo controller. FIGURE 17 & Pre-flashing Mode A With Pre-flashing Mode A activated, the pillar light relay will only activate during gate movement. & Pre-flashing Mode C With Pre-flashing Mode C activated, the pillar light relay will activate for two seconds before gate movement occurs, as well as during gate movement. This means that gate movement will be delayed for page 13 a period of two seconds after a trigger signal has been received. To change the Courtesy (Pillar) to one of the Pre-flashing Modes, please refer to the section, 'Customising the functions and settings' on page 27. 3.1.12. External Gate Status Indication LED Features and functions A LED (Light Emitting Diode) mounted on your intercom allows you to view the position of your gate and the condition of the battery and power supply from the safety of your home. The different signals of the LED are described below: FIGURE 18 Off Gate is closed On Gate is partially or fully open Continuous slow flash Gate is opening Continuous fast flash Gate is closing Two flashes every two seconds No mains present Three flashes every two seconds Battery voltage is low Four flashes every two seconds Multiple collisions have occurred If you choose not to fit a Gate Status Indicator, the Status LED on the controller can also be used for trouble-shooting. 3.1.13. Battery Low Protection The D2 Turbo’s controller has circuitry that monitors the state of the battery. During a power failure, energy is drawn from the battery but not replaced. To protect the battery from being quickly damaged, the protection circuitry prevents the motors from being run off the battery when the battery voltage drops below 10.6 volts. Indication that the Battery Low Protection has been triggered is provided by the onboard buzzer and status LED on the controller (and intercom if so equipped and connected to the controller). The LED will flash three times every two seconds, as will the buzzer beep three times every two seconds. The gate system will also shut off until such time as the battery has recharged to an acceptable level. Consult your gate automation specialist or Centurion Systems if you discover that your Battery Low Protection signal continues to re-occur. page 14 4. Customising the features and functions "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". ~ Leonardo Da Vinci The D2 Turbo controller makes ordinarily complex settings as quick and easy as possible. Using the Function and Setting Dials, the Select/Toggle Pushbutton , and the bi-colour (red and green) Status LED you can set up the many features and functions in a flash. Function Dial Customising the features and functions Status LED Select/ Toggle Pushbutton Settings Dial FIGURE 15 Function Dial Please always adjust the Function Dial first. Set this to the desired function. FIGURE 16 Then move the Setting Dial to the preferred setting. FIGURE 17 page 15 If a setting is for a single fixed value, for example, 15 second Autoclose time, then the Select Pushbutton acts as a select for that single choice. However, if the setting has two options, for example On/Off or Hi/Lo, then the Pushbutton acts as a Toggle between the two preferences. Customising the features and functions FIGURE 18 When using the Select Pushbutton to toggle between preferences the Status LED will light up as green to indicate On or High; or alternatively red to indicate Off or Low. FIGURE 19 The Function Dial must always be returned to the Run position (rotated fully counter-clockwise) after you have finished setting up any of the features, modes or profiles. This ensures that it will be ready for use. FIGURE 20 page 16 Examples: A. Setting up the gate Limits This is usually performed by an installer at the end of the installation. However, should you need to change these settings, you can do this by simply following these steps: Step 1: Ensure the gate is in the fully closed position and the motor drive is engaged. Customising the features and functions Step 2: Rotate the Function Dial to the LIMITS position (A). Step 3: Rotate the Setting Dial to the SETUP position along the ‘A’ row of options. FIGURE 21 Step 4: Press the Pushbutton to select this feature. FIGURE 22 The gate will then run through its automated procedure to determine the gate's open and closed positions. If setup is successful, the Status LED will be green, which indicates the setup has finished. FIGURE 23 Step 5: Return the Function Dial to the RUN position. FIGURE 24 page 17 B. Remote control administration Customising the features and functions The D2 Turbo controller incorporates an onboard multichannel receiver compatible with NOVA secure rolling code (KeeloqTM encryption). The receiver will allow any combination of the different inputs - Trigger (Gate fully open), Pedestrian, Holiday Lockout, etc. to be operated from a single multi-button remote control. You can also artificially increase the number of buttons 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. Press and hold the allocated shift button and then press 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 another button. FIGURE 25 2 Shift key 1 3 5 Shift key 4 Use of the shift button principle allows a three button transmitter to gain an extra button and operate four functions and a four button transmitter gains two extra buttons and can operate six functions. This is quite handy if you’d like to control additional devices from a single multi-button remote control, for example your garage doors if they are equipped with CENTURION NOVA rolling code receivers (KeeloqTM encryption). 6 Press and hold the ‘fourth’ button as a shift key together with button 1, 2 or 3 to operate 4, 5 or 6 FIGURE 26 However, it’s important to note that the other devices cannot be activated with the new shift button, only the D2 Turbo (and other CENTURION operators that are equipped with an onboard receiver) is able to recognise the shift button signals. Using the shift key principle also prevents you from enabling functions like Holiday Lockout Mode by accident. This is because you have to use both hands to press the two button combination. At any stage remote controls can be selectively added or deleted within the system. To selectively delete a remote control, the remote control must be available, please refer to the section, 'Deleting specific remote controls' on page 20. page 18 C. Adding NOVA remote controls (KeeloqTM encryption) To add a NOVA rolling code remote control (KeeloqTM encryption) to the onboard receiver and assign a button to any specific function as described above, follow the steps below: Step 1: Rotate the Function Dial to the REMOTES position (B). Step 2: Rotate the Setting Dial to the desired selection along the ‘B’ row of options. Customising the features and functions FIGURE 27 You can choose from the following settings: & Tx TRG to assign a remote control button to be learned into the system and trigger the gate to fully open & Tx PED to assign a remote control button to be learned into the system and partially open the gate for a pedestrian & Tx LCK to assign a remote control button to be learned into the system and activate Holiday Lockout Mode Step 3: Press the Pushbutton to select the setting chosen from above – the Status LED will change from red to green to confirm the setting. FIGURE 28 Step 4: Press the desired button on the remote control(s) that you want to active the selected function. The Status LED will flash twice indicating that the onboard receiver has learned in the remote control(s). The onboard buzzer will also pulse twice.

Battery saver In the event of a battery low shutdown, only the motor will stop drawing current – the controller, infrared beams and any other peripheral device will continue to flatten the battery, however, at a much slower rate. An optional low cut-out switch (product code CP107) totally disconnects the battery and protects it from being fully discharged and potentially damaged. Consult your gate automation specialist or Centurion Systems for further details. FIGURE 68 5.2. Solar power supply A solar panel can be used to charge the battery instead of the conventional charging circuit. A 20 Watt panel will provide enough power for 20 daily operations (less if 12V DC security lights are fitted) of an average gate. FIGURE 69 page 31 Additional features 6. Basic maintenance CENTURION operators are designed to be maintenance-free. However, there are some basic checks that should be carried out regularly, (every six months). These checks will increase the long term reliability of the system and prevent erratic operation of your gate. WARNING! Isolate mains supply to system before cleaning or working on the equipment. General Basic maintenance & Keep the track clear of stones, dirt and obstructions & Ensure that all rollers run freely & Put the operator into Manual Mode and check that the gate runs freely on its rail and does not catch or foul against the walls or pillars & Ensure that the gate wheels and guide-rollers are rotating freely and are not worn. In high-volume applications it will be necessary to replace these components regularly & Ensure that the rack is properly secured to the gate and that it does not press down onto the operator pinion at any point along its travel & Keep shrubs and vegetation clear of the motor and rack & Check that the key still operates the camlock - spray with lubrication if necessary & Keep the inside of the motor housing clear of insects and dust Battery Servicing CENTURION operators are fitted with high quality, maintenance-free lead acid batteries which should provide up to three years of normal service life. & Check for corrosion of the battery terminals. & Clean and apply copper-based grease as necessary. 7.
