The Allstar HDSLG 1000 Vehicular Gate Operator will provide
convenience and assurance to the ultimate users for many years. It is
ruggedly built of the finest materials and has been thoroughly inspected
and tested at the Allstar factory. It has many features that will aid in the
installation and testing of the complete gate system. The HDSLG has
been evaluated by Underwriters Laboratory, Inc. (UL) and is certified
to comply with UL Standard for Safety 325, as evidenced by the UL
symbol on the name plate.

manufactures) is designed to start and move gates weighing as much as
1200 pounds, or more,---the HDSLG is capable of producing high
levels of force. It is important in the design of the total gate system that
designers, installers and users be aware of the hazards that may be
associated with the IMPROPER design, installation and use of
vehicular gate systems and gate operators.
The gate operator is only one part of a complete automatic gate
operating system. As each location and usage is different, a properly
designed system will include all applicable safety devices.
As the designer and installer of the GATE SYSTEM, you must
advise the purchaser on the proper use of the gate system. You also
have the primary responsibility of insuring that ALL possible
operational hazards have been considered and eliminated. YOU
MUST ADVISE AND WARN the purchaser and the ultimate user of
ANY HAZARDS that you have not been able to eliminate.
The HDSLG has several features that can help reduce the hazards
of your gate system.
The Allstar HDSLG has a built-in "overload detector" that can help
reduce the hazards of your gate system. This device, however, must not
be considered as the primary obstruction sensing system. Consider all
available options (electric leading edges, photoelectric sensors,
protective screen mesh, etc) to eliminate hazards in your gate system
design.
The HDSLG built-in overload detector will activate if there is an abrupt

TESTED ON THE LOG PROVIDED BELOW (See Figure 1).
The HDSLG has a maximum motor current trip mechanism. If the
motor current is maintained at or near maximum for a period of
approximately two seconds the power will be turned off to the motor.
(This situation could occur if the gate becomes jammed.)
The HDSLG has a Maximum Run Timer. If the gate is activated and
no other command is given or an end limit (open or close) is not
reached in approximately 45 seconds, the operator will be turned off.
(See Page 19)
The HDSLG has an auxiliary “alarm” relay that can be used to give a
WARNING when the gate is opening or closing or if the OVERLOAD
has been activated. TO USE THIS ALARM FEATURE WILL
REQUIRE THAT THE INSTALLER PROVIDE THE ALARM
MECHANISM AND THE ELECTRICAL POWER FOR THE
ALARM. See Page 17.

SAFETY CHECK LIST:
•
DO NOT locate any device (key switch, switch, key pad, card
reader, etc.) in a position where it may be activated by a person
reaching through the gate or while touching the gate in any
manner.
•
Install all devices that will open or close the gate in such a
manner that THE GATE WILL BE IN FULL VIEW WHEN
THE DEVICE IS OPERATED.
•
SECURELY ATTACH THE WARNING SIGNS provided with
the HDSLG on the gate (one on the outside and one on the inside)
where they can be seen by persons in the area of the gate to alert
them of automatic gate operation. (If the user refuses to have the
warning signs installed, Allstar recommends you note this on
your records and have the user sign a disclaimer.) See Figure 2.

POINT" SO THIS HAZARD IS AVERTED. See Figure 4.
•
CONSIDER ALL OTHER "PINCH POINTS" IN YOUR
DESIGN of the gate system, such as the “pocket” of a sliding
gate. Use protective measures to reduce hazards at these
locations. See Figure 4.
•
When using the “timer to close” option of the HDSLG, install
VEHICLE DETECTOR LOOPS, VEHICLE DETECTORS,
REVERSING EDGE SYSTEMS AND/OR PHOTOCELLS.
Read the manual for information on the installation of these
devices. IF VEHICLE DETECTOR LOOPS HAVE BEEN
INSTALLED TO PREVENT THE GATE FROM CLOSING ON
A VEHICLE, INSTRUCT THE USER TO PERIODICALLY
CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE DETECTORS.
•
Outdoor or easily accessible controls must be of the security type
to prevent unauthorized use of the system.
•
Make sure the gate operating system is placed far enough back
from the road to eliminate traffic backup. The distance from the
road, size of the gate, usage level and gate cycle/speed must be
taken into consideration to eliminate potential hazards.
•
Check the operator manufacturer’s specification to ensure the
operator is proper for the cycles per hour, size and type of gate.
•
USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING NEAR BELTS
AND PULLEYS when the operator cover is removed. Apply
power to the operator only when instructed to do so.
•
Before activating the "timer to close" option of the operator,

FOR INSTALLATIONS WHERE IT IS LIKELY CHILDREN
WILL BE PRESENT NEAR THE AUTOMATIC GATE,
PLACE A WARNING SIGN SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TO
PARENTS AND VISITORS TO KEEP CHILDREN AWAY
FROM THE GATE AND NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY
ON THE GATE. (If the user refuses to have the sign installed,
Allstar recommends you note this on your records and have the
user sign a disclaimer.) See Figure 2.
For ORNAMENTAL “GRILL TYPE” GATES, injuries may occur
when people put arms through the openings or children “ride” the gate
by standing on the chain and holding on to the gate. THIS
POTENTIAL HAZARD CAN BE MINIMIZED BY INSTALLING
A MESH SCREEN ON THE GATE. See Figure 3.
The HDSLG 1000 is a VEHICULAR GATE OPERATOR and as
such is NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PEDESTRIAN traffic. In
installations where pedestrians are likely to be nearby, install a
pedestrian gate and use leading edge detectors and/or photocells
in your design to protect system entrapment zones. Allstar can
provide these products for incorporation in your gate installation.

SLIDE GATE ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION
Use the illustration at left to minimize the risk of injury in your design
of the swing gate operator system.
Entrapment Zones: Design in personal entrapment protection devices
to protect people from entrapment in the zones shown. Install vertical
posts with gate edges attached on both sides of the gate to prevent body
entrapment. Gate edges should be wired to stop the gate upon contact.
Pinch Points: Attach roller guards in cantilevered gate systems to
minimize the risk of hands being caught between the top of the gate and
the roller.

B: PREPARING THE SITE
THE CONCRETE OPERATOR PAD
If a suitable concrete base already exists for mounting the operator it
will be necessary only to drill mounting holes. 3/4" mounting holes are
located on each side of the operator. Four redhead bolts, 3/8" or 1/2" in
diameter, should be used for mounting the operator. The bolt pattern is
10" wide by 16-3/4" long. The two rear bolts, (closest to the gate),
should be no closer than 3-5/8" from the near side of the gate to allow
sufficient clearance for the operator's cover.
Installation requires the presence of a suitable concrete pad as a base for
the operator. The dimensions of this pad should be sufficient to allow
at least 6" of clearance from each edge of the pad to the nearest
operator mounting hole. The top of the pad should be 3" above grade to
raise the operator above any standing water, while the depth of the pad
below grade is dependent on the weight and size of the gate and the soil
conditions at the site of the installation. THE SITE FOR THE
OPERATOR SHOULD BE CHOSEN WITH AT LEAST 5" OF
CLEARANCE ABOVE THE TOP OF THE UNIT.

The operator requires a 3-wire (Hot, Common, Ground), 115 VAC,
electrical circuit with a 15 Amp breaker for proper operation. In
installations with more than one operator, each operator must have a
separate service from the breaker panel. Powering multiple operators
from the same service can result in having to "de-sensitize" the

operator pad. Attach one end of the chain to the gate and thread the
other end through the idler pulleys and drive sprocket. Attach the free
end to the bracket on the gate and tension the chain. You will normally
require a welder, or an electric drill with a 3/8" bit, for attaching the
chain brackets to the gate. See Figures 8 and 9.

PLACING THE OPERATOR
ELECTRICAL HOOKUP
The recommended procedure for attaching the operator to the concrete
pad is first to locate and drill the hole for the right rear redhead.
Review Figure 6, Page 6. After placing the redhead in the hole, remove
the cover and lower the operator over the redhead. Make sure the two
rear mounting holes on the operator are exactly the same distance from
the gate. (Improper alignment of the operator will cause premature
chain and idler sprocket failure.) With the operator properly aligned
with the gate, drill the remaining three holes with the operator in place.
The operator requires a 3-wire, 115 VAC electrical hook-up for proper
operation. Ideally, the conduit containing the hook-up wires should exit
the concrete pad under the operator. Run flexible conduit from the
point where the conduit exits the pad and attach it to the bottom of the
junction box at the front of the frame. Review Figure 7, Page 7.
If the hook-up exits the pad external to the operator, there's a 7/8"
diameter hole in each side of the frame near the front of the operator.
Review Figure 7, Page 7.
Before inserting the remaining redhead bolts, make sure the operator is
sitting level. If any corners of the operator are resting above the pad,
slide flat washers under the operator and insert the redhead through the
washers. Place the flat washers, lock washers and nuts on the redhead
bolts and tighten down the operator securely.
Remove the junction box face plate. Using the wire nuts provided,
attach the three lead wires to the electrical hook-up wires in the
following manner:

C: INSTALLING THE OPERATOR
NOTE: The control board comes equipped with a built-in surge
protector which MAY prevent damage to the controller board in the
event of a nearby lightning strike or a surge in the power lines. For the
surge protector to function, and as a general precaution, the operator
must be properly grounded. The third wire for the ground must be
installed .
ADDITIONAL LIGHTNING PROTECTION
For those areas where a high probability of ground lightning strikes
exists (Florida, Georgia, etc.), additional lightning protection should be
installed. Although it may not be possible to protect against all strikes,
additional protection will substantially reduce the occurrence of
lightning damage. Allstar’s lightning data indicates that the most
strikes enter the operator through the power lines. Effective protection
requires that the surge current from the lightning strike be shunted to
ground. This must be done without raising the potential of the circuitry
in the operator, with respect to ground, to the levels that will damage
the solid state circuitry. Lightning strikes generate enormous currents
for very short periods of time. Unfortunately, the period of time is long
enough to damage solid state components and many times, other
components. The key to success is a very low resistance path from the
surge protector to ground for these currents in addition to a surge
protector that will act fast enough to protect the solid state circuitry.
Several manufacturers offer suitable surge protectors.

STOP - can be continuous signals. A label on the control box lists the
function of each of the terminals on the barrier strip. See the Reference
Chart on Page 14.
WIRING VEHICLE DETECTORS
Place the detector on the bottom plate of the frame or in a remote
electrical box, NEVER in the control box. Hook-up the power and loop
wires on the detector harness according to the manufacturer's
instructions. Crimp 1/4" quick disconnect lugs to the RELAY
COMMON and PRESENCE OUTPUT wires on the detector harness.
The RELAY COMMON wire is connected to terminal #1, COMMON,

OUTPUT wire is connected to terminal #8, REVERSING. See Figure
10, for a typical installation.
Set the detector frequency and sensitivity switches on the detector
according to the manufacturer's instructions.
WIRING FREE EXIT DETECTORS
The installation of a free exit loop detector is identical to
a vehicle loop detector with the following exceptions:
Connect the PRESENCE OUTPUT wire of the detector
wiring harness to terminal #2, HOLD OPEN, on the

a radio receiver is connected to the transformer for power, one
end of the receiver relay must be connected to the common
terminal on the barrier strip. This will effectively ground one
side of the auxiliary transformer even if it is a "4-wire" receiver--in most cases. Many other auxiliary devices, such as card
readers and key pads, (using bridge rectifiers) require that both
sides of the transformer supplying power be "floating" and not
grounded. Failure to observe this restriction will damage the

BI-PARTING APPLICATION
WARNING!
In a bi-parting application, two operators are required, one operating in
a left-hand mode, the other in a right-hand mode. Both must be wired
for AC power (as previously described) but share a common set of
input controls. In general, all of the preceding instructions concerning
installation of individual operators can be followed in a bi-parting
application except the following:
RISK OF ELECTROCUTION
DO NOT BEGIN TO SET THE FOLLOWING
ADJUSTMENTS UNTIL THE POWER IS TURNED
OFF AT THE LEADER CONTROL BOX
Choose one of the operators to be the PRIMARY and the other to be
the SECONDARY. Route all of the control wiring to the PRIMARY
operator first. This will prevent grounding looping problems which can
occur when more than one COMMON or ground wire is attached
between separate operators. All accessory equipment should also be
wired to the PRIMARY.
NOTE: IF THE 4 WIRE RECEIVER INSTRUCTIONS SHOW
THAT TWO OF THE WIRES ARE OF THE SAME COLOR
AND ARE COMMON CONNECTIONS INSIDE THE
RECEIVER, ONE OF THESE WIRES SHOULD BE
CONNECTED TO TERMINAL #1 (COMMON) AND THE
OTHER TO ONE SIDE OF THE TRANSFORMER.
WIRING A 3-BUTTON STATION
From each of the control inputs with accessory equipment attached, run
a separate wire to its counterpart terminal on the SECONDARY
operator . 1/4" disconnect terminals for each command input are
provided for this purpose. Use conduit SEPARATE from AC power
service. See Figure 14 for the correct wiring.
See Figure 13 for instructions on wiring a 3-button station. NOTE:
The STOP button is normally OPEN.
WIRING A KEYPAD OR TELEPHONE ENTRY
SYSTEM
Install according to the manufacturer's instructions.
FINAL INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
1.
Use a voltmeter to assure the service voltage to the
operator is 115 VAC. Connection to 220 VAC service is
the most common cause of board failure in new
installations and is NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY!
2.
No accessory equipment is installed in the control box.
3.
All wires attached to the 11 position terminal strip or
the 3-terminal connector on the control box are well
clear of the motor V-belt and the limit switches.
4.
The junction box cover is securely fastened .

D: STARTING THE OPERATOR
LEFT- OR RIGHT-HAND INSTALLATIONS
SWITCH 1 - OBSTRUCTION DETECTION
• Switch 1 OFF
Open Direction - The gate will stop, move in the close
direction for 1/2 second and park.
The operator can be configured for left- or right-hand gate installations.
See Figure 16. On a normal drive installation, when standing inside the
gate and facing outwards, if the operator is on the right side of the gate,
it's a right-hand installation. If the operator is on the left side of the
gate, it's a left-hand installation.
Close Direction - The gate will stop, move in the open
direction for 1/2 second and park.
SWITCH 2 - CLOSE TIMER ENABLE SELECT
• Switch 2 OFF (CLOSE TIMER NOT ENABLED)
When the Close Timer is not enabled, the gate will open and
park. A CLOSE or an ALTERNATE command must then be
issued to close the gate. This mode is used for “COMMAND
OPEN/COMMAND CLOSE” installations.
The operator is shipped from the factory configured for left-hand
installations. If it is installed in a left-hand installation, make sure the
main power switch on top of the control box is off and locate the 8-pin,
• Switch 2 ON (CLOSE TIMER ENABLED)
107034
MORE
With the Close Timer enabled, the gate, when fully open, will
always time-out and close. A continuous signal present on
the HOLD OPEN or the SAFETY input will inhibit and reset
the Close Timer and prevent the gate from timing out until
the signal is not longer present. (See SETTING THE CLOSE
TIMER, P. 18)
SWITCH 3 - ON BOARD RELAY TRIGGER MODE SELECT
• Switch 3 OFF (ALARM RELAY MODE)
LESS
In this mode, the On Board Relay will be triggered by any
one of two alarm conditions:
1.
Obstruction has been detected.
2.
Maximum Run Timer has timed-out
• Switch 3 ON (GATE-IN-MOTION RELAY MODE)
The On Board Relay will be triggered whenever the gate
moves off either limit switch and will remain energized until
the gate arrives at another limit switch. By wiring the power
source for a flashing light or an audible buzzer across
terminals RELAY COMMON and RELAY N.O., the operator
will give a warning whenever the gate is in motion.

Pinch the locking tabs on the two sides of the connector and remove it
from the connector labeled, "RIGHT". Then plug it into the connector
labeled, "LEFT".
By using the terminals RELAY COMMON and RELAY N.C.,
the On Board Relay can also be used in conjunction with a
magnetic gate lock. The On Board Relay will be energized
1/4 second before the motor begins moving the gate,
thereby giving the magnetic lock time to release.
USE CAUTION! MAKE SURE THE POWER SWITCH IS
TURNED OFF AT THE OPERATOR.
Identify the limit nut detent plate and the limit nuts. See Figure
18. Depress the limit nut plate and rotate the limit nuts until
they are close to touching each other near the center of the
threaded area on the limit nut shaft.
Locate the small, black slider switch midway down the left side of the
controller board. Switch it to the position labeled, "LEFTHAND". The
operator is now configured for a lefthand installation.
SETTING THE LIMIT SWITCHES
Unlock the MANUAL OPEN on the side of the operator. The
gate should be able to move freely. Manually push the gate to
the desired open position. Push down the limit nut detent plate

until it disengages the slots on the limit nut. Then, rotate the
open limit nut until it engages the leaf on the open limit switch
when approached from the center of the threads on the limit nut
threaded shaft. Listen carefully for the "snap action" of the limit
switch. It may be necessary to try this operation several times
until the "click" of the limit switch is clearly identified. Once
the exact position of the click is noted, rotate the limit nut about
two or three slots on the limit nut (each slot on the limit nut
equals approximately 1" of gate travel) more in the direction to
the back of the operator away from the gate. This will give the
operator time to stop the gate after the limit switch has been
activated and prevent banging of the gate on its mechanical stop.
Now, manually push the gate to the desired closed position. The
closed limit switch and limit nut will be the closest to the front
of the operator. Repeat the limit nut adjustment described
previously. In this case, the limit nut will be rotated towards the
front of the operator. Again, after carefully noting the position
of the click on the engagement of the limit switch, rotate the
limit nut two or three slots on the nut toward the front of the
operator toward the gate.
operator is equipped with an obstruction
detection circuit which will detect MOST
obstructions in the gate's path. See Figure
19. The sensitivity can be adjusted with the
rightmost trimmer potentiometer on the
controller board labeled, "OVERLOAD".
Turning the potentiometer clockwise
decreases the sensitivity and turning it
counterclockwise increases the sensitivity.
When the setting of the limit nuts has been completed, manually
move the gate to the center of its travel.
The final setting of the limit nuts will be accomplished after the
operator has been powered up.
SETTING THE LIMIT SWITCHES FOR RIGHT HAND

PERIOD.
FINAL SETTING OF THE LIMIT SWITCHES
If the gate stops short of being fully open or closed or if it bangs against
the end stops, turn off the main power and reset the appropriate limit
switch nut. Each slot on the limit nuts represents about 1" of gate travel.
The nuts should only have to be turned one or two slots in either direction
to fine tune the gate's limits of travel. When final adjustment has been
completed, insure that the detent plate is firmly seated in the slots.
Review Figure 18, Page 16.

tuned to insure that the gates stop in their open positions at the same
time.
SETTING THE CLOSE TIMER
To adjust the amount of time the close timer will hold the gate open,
use the lower leftmost trimmer potentiometer next to the relay on the
controller board. Review Figure 19, Page 17.
SWITCH SELECTABLE OPTIONS - Make sure the three dip
switches are set identically on both control boards.
Close timer delay is adjustable between 2 and 100 seconds. Turning
the potentiometer counterclockwise increases the delay; turning it
clockwise decreases the delay.
CLOSE TIMER - If the close timers are enabled, set the adjustment
potentiometers to approximately the same position on each control
board. Cycle the gates several times making slight adjustments to one
of the potentiometers until the gates timeout and begin closing at
exactly the same time.
FIN AL SETTI NG OF THE
OBSTRUCTION DETECTION
SENSITIVITY
The obstruction detection sensitivity was preset before turning on the
main power to prevent the operator from "self-tripping" during testing.
To set the sensitivity, start the gate in motion and turn the overload
potentiometer counterclockwise until the OVERLOAD light turns on.
Then back the potentiometer off 10 degrees in the clockwise direction.
Review Figure 19, Page 17.
When properly adjusted, the two operators will perform as if they were
a Master/Slave installation. If the motor overload circuit in one
operator should respond to an obstruction not encountered by the other,
the gates will temporarily get out of sync. If Switch 1 is in the OFF
position in both operators, synchronization will be restored after the
next input command cycle
Restart the gate and give the leading edge a firm blow with the heal of
your palm. Don't stand directly in the gate's path while testing the
obstruction sensitivity. The obstruction detection should respond
immediately to the blow. The overload potentiometer must be adjusted
to the most sensitive setting possible without causing "self-tripping"
due to the gate's inherent friction or to variations in the track. Try
readjusting the potentiometer several times by small increments, testing
the gate in both directions of travel, until you are satisfied.

acceptable to have more than one device connected to the same
terminal.) Place the metal plate over the FREE EXIT LOOP and
observe that the gate opens to the fully open position. Leave the
metal plate on the loop for at least one minute. Observe that the
gate does not close. Remove the plate from the loop and observe
that the gate closes. (Some vehicle detectors will "tune out" a
constant obstruction to the loop after 15 to 30 minutes.)
Vehicle Detectors:
If a Vehicle Detector (Reversing
Loop) is to be a part of this installation, start with this
first. Connect the vehicle detector to AC power and the
loop in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions
and the information contained in this manual. Do not
connect to the terminal strip of the Operator at this time.
Test the vehicle detector independently using the presence
lamp on the front panel of the detector and a metal plate
over the loop. When you are satisfied that the detector is
working properly, connect the output wires to terminal #8,
"REVERSING", on the control panel of the Operator.

To the Owner/End User of Allstar’s Gate Operator:
Thank you for choosing an Allstar product. We are confident you
will have many years of use and satisfaction with your gate operator.
Our Gate Operator is part of your unique gate operating system,
which may consist of a variety of components, including the gate, the
gate tracks, posts, and electronic features. These components
combined present certain risks and safety issues of which you, the
end user, must be aware.
ALL APPROPRIATE SAFETY FEATURES MUST BE
INCORPORATED INTO YOUR GATE SYSTEM.
Each unique system presents a unique set of hazards which we
cannot possibly address individually. These instructions will help
you to identify the potential risks and safety issues your gate operator
system presents, and guide you as you make your system as safe as
possible for everyone who uses it.
Each safety feature is a separate component in your gate system.
Read and follow all intructions for each of the components of your
unique system. Ensure that all instructions for mechanical
components, safety features and the Allstar Gate Operator are
available for everyone who will be using your gate system.
Your first step is to consider the intended use of the gate system,
who will be using the gate system, and in what manner the system is
installed. You should have a clear understanding of how often the
gate will be opened, who will be opening it, whether children and the
general public will be near the gate system, and how close the gate
system is to public property. Once you have answered these
questions, you are ready to decide what safety measures must be
taken to prevent injury.
The two warning signs shipped with your Gate Operator (See
Figurez2, Page 4 of this manual) must be installed in prominant
positions on both sides of your gate. Keep them clean and legible.
Read and follow the safety points on the following page which
present the basic guidelines for the safest operation of your gate
operator system.
To minimize the risk of entrapment in your gate system, install the
following safety features:
•
Enclosed tracks
Vertical guard posts
Protective screen mesh
Photoelectric sensors
Instructional and precautionary signs
Covers for exposed rollers
Electric gate edges
PRECAUTIONS FOR PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC OR RESIDENTIAL AREAS
The internal operator overload sensor may not be adequate entrapment protection in all situations to prevent arm, leg, or hand injuries.
Padded electric gate edges, roller guards, pneumatic gate edges, or photoelectric sensors are therefore necessary when automatic gates
are used near pedestrian traffic. See the figure below. Use of pedestrian walk gate is mandatory where there is nearby pedestrian
traffic.
107037
Figure 23: Entrapment Protection
21
F: GATE OPENER SYSTEM OPERATION & SAFETY GUIDE
AVOID ENTRAPMENT: Stay away from the path of the gate
and all moving parts (gate arms, etc.) at all times. Keep clear of the
pinch points identified below.. Install guards or other safety features to
prevent access to pinch point areas. Install guards on open rollers.
INSTALL SAFETY DEVICES: In residential applications or in
areas where pedestrians may be present, or if your gate closes
automatically, be sure an electric edge(s) and/or a photoelectric sensor(s)
has (have) been installed and is/are operating properly. These features are
intended to detect pedestrian traffic and prevent injury or entrapment.
Loop detectors may be installed to detect vehicular traffic and prevent
vehicular damage.
PREVENT PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH: Do not stand
near or on the gate. Gate may be activated without notice. Do not
allow anyone to “ride” the gate, or place arms or legs through the gate. The
force of the gate can cause serious personal injury or death.
MAINTAIN THE GATE AND GATE HARDWARE: A
damaged gate or one that cannot be easily opened and closed
manually must be repaired before installing a gate operator. A poorly
operating gate may cause the load sensing device of the operator to fail,
causing a risk of entrapment. Never overtighten the clutch or load sensing
device to compensate for a poorly operating slide gate. Correct all
mechanical problems on the gate and gate hardware before installing the
gate operator.
NO CHILDREN OR PETS ALLOWED: Never allow a child to
operate gate controls, “ride” a gate, or play in the area of a gate.
Install and store all controls out of children’s reach. Also, pets must be
kept away from the gate. Install a pedestrian gate in applications where
children or pets need access.
KEEP GATE IN SIGHT: Never activate the gate unless it is in
sight. Install mounted controls in full view of the gate. Be sure the
gate area is clear before activating the gate, and watch the gate and gate area
as the gate is in motion.
MAINTAIN ALL COMPONENTS OF GATE SYSTEM:
Follow the maintenance instructions included with the gate, the
gate operator, and the safety features and/or accessories that make up your
gate operator system. Have a professional service technician perform any
adjustments or maintenance to the components. Fully test all safety
features routinely. If faulty equipment is discovered or suspected,
discontinue the use of the gate operator SYSTEM immediately, and
have the equipment replaced.
LOCATE MANUAL CONTROLS SAFELY:
A manual
control such as a pushbutton or keyswitch must be included in
your gate system design to be used if automatic controls such as radio
controls or loop detectors do not function. Carefully consider the placement
of the manual control:
It must be out of reach
of the gate so that no
one pushing the button
or inserting the card is
in the path of the gate
or moving parts; it
must also be within
