IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
INTERNAL ENTRAPMENT PREVENTION:
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent (Type A) entrapment sensing device. The system will sense an
obstruction in both the open and close cycles, and will reverse the direction of the gate travel upon encountering an
obstruction. If the system detects a second obstruction before reaching the full open or close limit after the initial reversal, a
warning alarm will activate and the operator will require a reset before resuming normal operation. This is called a “Hard
Shutdown”. Please read and follow the “Shutdown Conditions” section of this manual for more directions.
EXTERNAL ENTRAPMENT PREVENTION:
Non-contact and/or contact sensors must be installed to provide external entrapment prevention in accordance with UL325
section 3.1. Use only UL325 compliant devices and low voltage (24V) devices. Carefully follow the installation manual for the
UL325 device used for installation, usage, and maintenance.
Non-Contact Sensors (Photo Beams):
Non-contact sensors generally are photoelectric cells or like devices. For gate operators utilizing non-contact sensors:
1. Refer to the diagram below for placement of non-contact sensors.
2. Use care to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate is still moving.
3. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where a risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such as the
perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier, entrapment areas, and/or pinch points. Use caution when installing
non-contact sensors since some devices only cover a select area. For example, a photo beam will not cover the full
height of a gate/fence area. Refer to the diagram below.
Contact Sensors (Edge Sensors):
Contact sensors generally are sensing edges or like devices. For gate operators utilizing contact sensors:
1. Refer to the diagram below for placement of contact sensors.
2. One or more contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such as the inside and
outside leading edge of the gate. One or more edge sensors shall be located on the bottom edge of the gate if the gate
is more than 6” above ground at any point of its arc or travel.
3. Hardwired contact sensors shall be located and its wiring arranged so the communication between the sensor and the
gate operator is not subject to any mechanical damage.
4. Wireless contact sensors such as ones that transmit radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for entrapment
prevention functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or impeded by building
structures, landscaping or similar obstructions. All wireless contact sensors shall function under the intended end-use
conditions.
Standard Reverse beams help

CONCRETE PAD SIZE & LOCATION:
The FSW900 vehicular gate operator is designed to be mounted on a concrete pad. Select a location for the gate operator to
be installed. For pad location and size:
1. Determine the location for the operator to be installed. Determine the location of the output shaft as described above.
Then determine the location of the concrete pad following the drawing below
2. Follow all local building codes to determine the required depth of the concrete pad. The average concrete pad should
be 24” wide x 28” long x 24” deep. Extend the pad 4” above ground.
3. When the exact location of the operator can be predetermined, all conduits may be located in the concrete pad
terminating directly under the operator. Extend each conduit a minimum of 1” above the level of the concrete pad. See
the Conduit Location diagram below. It is suggested to install a minimum of four (4) conduits: (1) High Voltage Conduit,
(1) Low Voltage Conduit , (1) Loop Lead Wire Conduit, (1) Accessory Conduit.
4. When the exact location of the operator can not be predetermined, bring all conduits up to one side and terminate in a
Bell Box. Make connections to the operator using water-tight flex conduit.
5. Form the concrete pad and pour concrete. Allow the concrete to cure for 48 hours before removing forms and mounting
the operator.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
POWER SWITCH LOCATION:
The gate operator uses a built-in power switch to control power to the operator and controller. This switch should be turned
OFF during installation and service. Failure to use this switch can result in unexpected gate movement. Please note:
1. The switch is located on the LEFT side of the control box.
2. DOWN position = OFF. UP position = ON.
3. This switch must be used to turn OFF AC and battery power. Only disconnecting AC power still allows battery power to
the operator, controller, and accessories.
AC POWER GUIDELINES:
Under normal conditions, the gate operator will use a single phase AC power line to operate the gate, charge the batteries, and
power gate accessories. Use the following guidelines when installing the AC power:
1. Check the local wiring codes in all cases and follow all local building codes. Wiring and hookup should be performed by
a qualified electrician/installer only.
2. AC power should be supplied from a circuit breaker panel and must have its own dedicated circuit breaker. This supply
must include a green ground conductor.
3. Only use UL approved 14 AWG or larger 600 Volt Insulated Wire. Use the following chart to determine the AC wire size.
This information is for suggested use only - Check your local codes before installation.

ACCESSORY POWER:
Two plug-in power plugs are located on the back of the controller. These plugs are for low voltage accessories and are
separately fused. Low voltage, low current draw transformers may be plugged into these outlets for accessory power. DO
NOT USE THESE POWER OUTLETS FOR INSTALLATION OR SERVICE TOOLS. Each plug supplies 110 VAC when AC
power is active to the gate operator. If AC is not available, the power plugs will not supply power. Accessories requiring power
during battery backup modes should use the 24 VDC located on the controller terminals.
Additional accessory power may be found on the controller terminals. The controller terminals supply 24 VDC for accessories.
This power is available during AC and battery power modes. When AC power is active, accessories will be supplied 24 VDC
without a power draw on the batteries. When the battery backup mode is active, accessories will be supplied 24 VDC from the
batteries. If the battery power mode is used frequently, consider the current draw of the accessories. The lower the current
draw, the longer the battery power supply will last. Additional 24 VDC for accessories may be found on the Radio Terminal,
Edge/Photo Terminal, and External Loop Terminal. A connection between 24V DC+ and Common will supply power.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
MASTER/SLAVE CONNECTION:
The operator can be used in a Master-Slave configuration to control the two leafs of a bi-parting gate. That can be done with a
wired or wireless connection. The wired connection should be the default choice if there is a way to bring a cable across the
gate opening. If that’s impractical you can use the wireless connection accessory WMS100 to establish the communication
between Master and Slave. In the latter case you need to make sure there is no metal blocking the line of sight between the
two operators, for example a metal gate with no openings.
To connect two operators together:
1. Determine which operator is the Master and which operator is the slave. All external devices such as loop detectors
and safety devices must be wired directly to the Master unit. If one gate travels further than the other the gate that
travels further must be the Master
2. Turn Slave Operator DIP Switch 3 to ON = SLAVE
3. Turn Master Operator DIP Switch 3 to OFF = MASTER
4. WIRED CONNECTION: in a separate conduit, run a 6-conductor cable (twisted pairs) between the Master operator and
the Slave operator. Make the connections on the Master/Slave Terminal Block following the schematic below.
(Recommended Wire: Outdoor Rated CAT 5 Cable. If shielded make sure the shield is connected on one side only)
OR
4. WIRELESS CONNECTION: Plug one WMS100 board on the RJ45 connector on the top left of the Master control board
and one on the Slave. Wire the 24V power to it from one of the accessory terminal blocks.
5. Power up the operators and verify that the SLAVE LEDs are blinking

GATE OPERATOR ADJUSTMENTS
REVERSE SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT:
The gate operator is equipped with an inherent (Type A) entrapment sensing system. The sensor detects obstructions in both
the open and close path of the gate. There is an OPEN SENSITIVITY Adjustment and a CLOSE SENSITIVITY Adjustment.
To adjust the sensitivity:
1. Activate the gate to open.
2. While the gate is running open, slowly rotate the OPEN SENSITIVITY adjustment clockwise to INCREASE the sensitivity
until the gate stops in mid-travel.
3. Gently rotate the OPEN SENSITIVITY adjustment counter-clockwise 1/8 turn to DECREASE the sensitivity.
4. Activate the gate to close.
5. While the gate is running closed, slowly rotate the CLOSE SENSITIVITY adjustment clockwise to INCREASE the
sensitivity until the gate stops in mid-travel.
6. Gently rotate the CLOSE SENSITIVITY adjustment counter-clockwise 1/8 turn to DECREASE the sensitivity.
7. Operate the gate a few times to be sure it fully cycles without stopping.
8. Place an immobile object in the open path of the gate to stop the gate while in travel. The gate should stop and enter a
Soft Shutdown upon striking the object.
9. Place an immobile object in the closed path of the gate to stop the gate while in travel. The gate should stop and enter a
Soft Shutdown upon striking the object.
10.Repeat steps 2 - 6 until the correct sensitivity adjustment is found.
Clockwise Turn:
INCREASE Sensitivity
(Reverse the gate more easily)
Counter-Clockwise Turn:
DECREASE Sensitivity
CAUTION:
Gently rotate each
adjustment. Turning
the adjustment POT
too hard will break the
adjustment.
(Reverse the gate less easily)
!
For the Reverse Sensor to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and
work freely in both directions. Repair or replace worn hardware.
REVERSE SENSITIVITY SHUTDOWN:
Upon a first obstruction, the reverse sensor should:
1. Stop the gate and reverse it approximately two (2) inches.
2. Disable the Timer To Close Feature until the gate operator receives a new command = Soft Shutdown.
3. Any standard input can reactivate the gate and return it to normal operation.
Upon a second consecutive obstruction before the gate reaches either limit, the reverse sensor should:
1. Stop the gate.
2. Disable the gate operator = Hard Shut Down.
3. Sound the audio alarm for five (5) minutes or until the operator has been reset.
4. Only resetting the operator will reactivate the gate and return it to normal operation.
5. To reset the operator in a Hard Shut Down situation: Press the reset button on the left side of the controller or turn the
power switch OFF and back ON.

GATE OPERATOR ADJUSTMENTS
CLOSE TIME DELAY ADJUSTMENT:
The gate operator is equipped with a built-in automatic timer to close feature. This feature should be set to the OFF position
until proper safety and reverse devices have been installed. CAUTION: Turning on the Close Time Delay without proper
safety and reverse devices can cause serious injury, death, and property damage. The Close Time Delay can be set to from 1
to 90 seconds. When active, the Close Time Delay will hold the gate open until the internal timer has timed out and then
allows the gate to close. To turn OFF/ON and adjust the Close Time Delay:
1. To turn OFF the Close Time Delay, move DIP SWITCH 4 to the Left.
Timer ON
2. To turn ON the Close Time Delay, move DIP SWITCH 4 to the Right.
3. Turn power Off and back On to reset DIP Switch settings.
4. Rotate the TIME DELAY adjustment clockwise to INCREASE the delay.
5. Rotate the TIME DELAY adjustment counter-clockwise to DECREASE the
delay.
Switch 4:
ON
Clockwise Turn:
INCREASE Time Delay
(Holds gate open longer time)
Counter-Clockwise Turn:
DECREASE Time Delay
(Holds gate open shorter time)
CAUTION:
Gently rotate each adjustment. Turning the
adjustment POT too hard will break the
adjustment.

LOOP INSTALLATION GUIDELINES:
Proper loop installation is a critical aspect of any gate application. An improperly installed loop may operate intermittently
causing false triggers, holding the gate open, or allowing the gate to close on traffic. The following guidelines should be
followed when installing loops:
1. Determine proper location and size of each loop. Chalk out
loops on the driveway:
 Loops should be 4 - 5 feet back from the gate path. Loops any
closer may be cause false activation when the gate passes by.
Typical
Diagonal
Corner Cuts
Loop
 Determine the size of the loop. Make the loop large enough so
a vehicle must pass over the loop. The average loop is 4’ x 8’.
Consider the detection height.
 Determine the detection height. The typical sensing height is
2/3 of the shortest leg. (Example: a 4’ x 8’ loop typically has a
detection height of 2 1/2 feet.) To increase the detection height,
increase the loop size.
Lead wires must be
twisted 6 twist/foot
until connected to the
loop input. If
possible, twist lead
wires from the edge
of the loop.
1/4” Saw Slot
2. Cut loop slots in the driveway:
 Loop slot should be 1 1/2” to 2” deep.
Sealant: 3/4” to 1” Min.
 Loop slot should be 1/4” wide.
 Cut diagonal corner slots to protect the wire insulation and keep
the wire from changing directions quickly.
3. Install loop wire:
 Recommended Wire: 14 AGW to 18 AGW Stranded XLPE.
 Starting at the gate operator, install the loop wire into the lead
and loop slots. Use one continuous run of wire for the loop.

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
FAULT LIGHT COUNT:
The gate operator control board has a Fault Light to help determine fault shutdowns. If the operator is not functioning properly,
remove the cover and check the Fault Light for the operator Fault Status. Use the following chart to determine the Fault:
Number of
Blinks
Fault Description
Cause & Action
Sensitivity/Current
Overload:
First Time
Operator detected an unexpected current overload while moving. Usually caused
by the gate hitting an obstruction or tripping the sensitivity. This will put the
operator in a Soft Shutdown.
1. Make sure the sensitivity settings are set correctly. Too light of a setting will
cause the gate to stop and fault.
2. Make sure there are no external obstructions that are causing the gate to stop
and shutdown.
2
Sensitivity/Current
Overload:
Second Time
Operator detected an unexpected current overload while moving a second time.
Usually caused by the gate hitting an obstruction or tripping the sensitivity. This will
put the operator in a Hard Shutdown.
1. Make sure the sensitivity settings are set correctly. Too light of a setting will
cause the gate to stop and fault.
2. Make sure there are no external obstructions that are causing the gate to stop
and shutdown.
3
Run Time Fault
Operator has run longer than normal. Usually caused by a bad limit or wiring fault .
1. Check the limit for normal operation.
2. Make sure the limit wire connections are tight.
Sensor Fault/Failure
Motor Sensors have failed. Usually caused by a bad sensor or loose sensor wire.
1. Make sure the sensor wires are tight and well connected to the blue connector.
While the operator is stopped, wiggle the Limit/Sensor connector. If the limit or
sensor wires blink on and off, there is a loose connection.
2. Start the operator, watch Sensor 1 and Sensor 2 at startup. They should both
blink before turning solid. If only one blinks, then the non-blinking sensor is not
being seen.
3. Remove the motor from the gearbox. Both sensor lights should be on. Pass a
flat screw driver between Sensor 1 and Sensor 2 on the motor plate. The
Sensor LED on the control board should turn off and on as the screw driver
passed through it.
4. Make sure the sensor cup on the gearbox shaft is tight. A loose sensor cup will
slip and cause the sensors to miss counts.
PCB Overheat Fault
Operator PCB has become too hot and caused a fault.
1. Make sure the control board heat sink is secured to the side of the controller box
to help dissipate excess heat.
2. Determine if the operator has run excessively to cause an overheating problem.
3. Possibly a defective heat sensor on the control board. Have board repaired.
Master Slave Fault
Master Slave communication has failed. Usually caused by a loose Master Slave
wire or connector. A very strong lightning strike can sometimes cause damage to
the master slave circuit on the control board.
1. Make sure the master slave wires are connected correctly and tight.
2. Unplug the master slave wire and set both operators as Masters. Test each
operator independently to make sure there are no other problems or faults. After
determining each operator runs by itself, reset the master slave settings and
connect the master slave wire. If the problem continues, recheck wire and wire
connections.
3. Run a new CAT5 wire on top of the driveway to test the master slave
communication. This will determine if the underground wire is good or bad.
4. Possible damage to the control board master slave components. Have boards
repaired.
