Introduction
SAFETY INSTALLATION INFORMATION
1. READ and FOLLOW all instructions.
2. The gate operator is intended for use with Class I
vehicular swing gates.
Class I denotes a vehicular gate operator (or system)
intended for use in a home of one to four single
family dwellings, or a garage or parking area associated
therewith.
Install the gate operator only when the operator is
appropriate for the construction and the usage class of
the gate.
3. Gate operating system designers, installers and users
must take into account the possible hazards associated
with each individual application. Improperly designed,
installed or maintained systems can create risks
for the user as well as the bystander. Gate system
design and installation must reduce public exposure to
potential hazards. Install the gate operator only when
the operator is appropriate for the construction of the
gate and the usage class of the gate. All exposed pinch
points must be eliminated or guarded.
4. A gate operator can create high levels of force during
normal operation. Therefore, safety features must be
incorporated into every installation. Specific safety
features include safety sensors.
5. The gate must be properly installed and work freely in
both directions prior to the installation of the gate operator.
6. The gate must be installed in a location so that enough
clearance is provided between the gate and adjacent
structures when opening and closing to reduce the risk
of entrapment. Swinging gates shall not open into public
access areas.
7. The operator is intended for use only on gates used for
vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate
access opening. The pedestrian access opening
shall be designed to promote pedestrian usage. The
pedestrian access shall be located such that persons
will not come in contact with the moving vehicular gate.
8. Pedestrians should never cross the pathway of a
moving gate. The gate operator is not acceptable for
use on any pedestrian gate. Pedestrians must be
supplied with a separate pedestrian access.
9. For an installation utilizing non-contact sensors (safety
sensors), see product manual on the placement of
non-contact sensors (safety sensors) for each type of
application.
a. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of
nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the
safety sensor while the gate is still moving.
b. One or more non-contact sensors (safety sensors)
shall be located where the risk of entrapment or
obstruction exists, such as the perimeter reachable
by a moving gate or barrier.
10. For a gate operator utilizing a contact sensor such as
an edge sensor:
a. A hard wired contact sensor shall be located and
its wiring arranged so the communication between
the sensor and the gate operator is not subject to
mechanical damage.
b. One or more contact sensors shall be located on
the inside and outside leading edge of a swing gate.
Additionally, if the bottom edge of a swing gate is
greater than 6" (152 mm) above the ground at any
point in its arc of travel, one or more contact sensors
shall be located on the bottom edge.
11. Never mount any device that operates the gate
operator where the user can reach over, under, around
or through the gate to operate the controls. Controls
are to be placed at least 6' (1.8 m) from any part of the
moving gate:
• A hard wired control device shall be located and its
wiring arranged so that communication between the
control device and the gate operator is not subject to
mechanical damage.
12. Controls intended to be used to reset an operator after
2 sequential activations of the entrapment protection
device or devices must be located in the line of sight
of the gate, or easily accessible controls shall have a
security feature to prevent unauthorized use. Never
allow anyone to hang on or ride the gate during the
entire travel of the gate.
Introduction

13. Each gate operator is provided with two safety warning
placards. The placards are to be installed on the front
and back of the gate where they are plainly visible. The
placards may be mounted using cable ties through the
four holes provided on each placard.
All warning signs and placards must be installed
where visible in the area of the gate.
To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from a moving gate:
• Install warning signs on the front and back of the gate in
PLAIN VIEW.
• Permanently secure each warning sign in a suitable manner
using fastening holes.
Moving Gate Can Cause
Injury or Death
KEEP CLEAR! Gate may move at any
time without prior warning.
Do not let children operate the gate or
play in the gate area.
This entrance is for vehicles only.
Pedestrians must use separate entrance
14. To AVOID damaging gas, power, or other underground
utility lines, contact underground utility locating
companies BEFORE digging.
15. SAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS.

Occasionally in dual gate installations, one gate will need to open first and close second. This would happen if there was
an ornamental overhang on one gate or if using a solenoid lock, for example. This gate is called the Primary gate and
needs to be connected to Gate 1 connections on the control board. Thus, it is preferred that the control box be installed
on the same side as this gate. If there is no appropriate location on that side for the control box, then mount the control
box on the opposite side, but connect the operator closest to the control box to the Gate 2 connector and the operator on
the opposite side to the Gate 1 connector.

SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION
Select Site for Solar Panel(s)
The solar panel(s) must be located in an open area clear of obstructions and shading for the entire day. The solar
panel(s) comes with a 10' cable. If a location near the control box cannot be found, an additional cable will be required.
The LA412 Solar Gate Operator is not supported in northern climates where temperatures reach below -4F. This is due
to cold weather and a reduced number of hours of sunlight during the winter months. Cycle rate may vary from solar chart
for areas that reach below 32F. Solar panels should be cleaned on a regular basis for best performance to ensure proper
operation.

The map (above) and cycles/day ratings are approximations and do not account for installed accessories that draw
additional battery power. Ratings vary based on gate construction and installation. They are also shown for using a single
10W solar panel in conjunction with two 12 Volt 7.0 AH batteries. Ratings will improve by adding additional 10W solar
panels. If required, up to three 10W panels (30W total) can be wired in parallel to increase the number of cycles per day.
NOTE: The solar panel(s) recommendation is based upon the average solar radiation and the temperature effects on batteries in the
given regions. Local geography and weather conditions may require additional solar panels. Solar panels cannot be installed in areas that
experience heavy fog or lake effect rain and snow.

POSITION SOLAR PANEL(S)
NOTE: If the panel(s) is not casting a shadow, the battery is not being charged.
The location of the panel(s) is critical to the success of the installation. In general, the panel(s) should be mounted
using the provided angle bracket facing due south. The solar panel(s) should be mounted in an area clear of all
obstructions and shading from buildings and trees. The area should be clear for a 180° arc from due east of the
panel(s) location to due west of the panel(s) location.
NOTE: Tall trees or buildings that do not shade the solar panel(s) in the summer could shade the solar panel(s) during the winter
months when the sun sits lower in the sky.
Sun’s Position
Solar Panel
NOTE: DO NOT install solar panel near potential
shading or obstructions that will block the panel
during any part of the day.
TIP: To optimize the system for
winter operation the angle can be
increased an additional 15° (solar
panel(s) sits more vertical).
South
TIP: The area around the solar panel(s)
should be clear of shadows or obstructions
to the sun for a 180° arc east to west.

CONNECT SOLAR PANEL(S) TO OPERATOR CONTROL BOX
Open the control box cover. Disconnect all power and
batteries from the control board. Run the solar panel
cable to the bottom of the control box. Thread the
cable through the watertight connector and pull the
cable through until it reaches the AC PWR/SOLAR
connector on the control board. Tighten the watertight
connector on the cable. Attach the solar panel wires
to AC PWR/SOLAR input terminal (polarity is not
important). Leave the AC PWR/SOLAR earth ground
connection open.
To avoid SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from a moving gate:
• Disconnect ALL electric and battery power BEFORE
performing ANY service or maintenance.
• DO NOT connect more than 3 solar panels.
• DO NOT connect solar panel(s) when power supply is
connected.
NOTE: The system is designed to be charged by either an AC plug-in transformer or a separate solar panel, but not both.
Connect the AC PWR/SOLAR connector to the control board. With the batteries still disconnected, the control board
should power up if the solar panel is correctly installed and the sun is shining (the diagnostic LED will blink).
Use the cable ties to secure the solar panel cable away from places where it could be damaged.
NOTE: If the sky is too overcast to allow the solar panel to power up the system, the panel will need to be verified at another time
when the sun is shining. There is no other way to verify the panel installation.

PROGRAMMING
Program Limits
The limits are internal settings that indicate when the gates are in the fully open position and the fully closed position. For
proper functionality, the limits must be programmed during the installation process. The programming uses a combination
of buttons on the control board.
The specific buttons used for programming depends on which side of the gate the control box is mounted and how many
operators the installation includes. Refer to pages 11 and 13 to determine if the gate is Left- or Right-handed.
If a mistake is made during programming press the RESET button on the outside of the control box to start over.

Force and Timer to Close
FORCE ADJUSTMENT
The operator is equipped a with an obstruction sensing
feature. If the gate encounters an obstruction the operator
will automatically reverse direction and stop. Based on the
length and weight of the gate it may be necessary to make
force adjustments. The force adjustment should be high
enough that small objects such as branches or wind will
not cause nuisance interruptions but low enough to prevent
serious injury to a person or a vehicle.
Without a properly installed safety reversal system, persons
(particularly small children) could be SERIOUSLY INJURED or
KILLED by a closing gate.
• Too much force on gate will interfere with proper operation
of safety reversal system.
• NEVER increase force beyond minimum amount required to
close gate.
• NEVER use force adjustments to compensate for a binding
or sticking gate.
• If one control (force or travel limits) is adjusted, the other
control may also need adjustment.
• After ANY adjustments are made, the safety reversal system
MUST be tested. Gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid
object.
To adjust the force:
Using the 3-button remote or the Single Button Control
(SBC) button on the control board, open and then close
the gate. If the gate stops or reverses before reaching the
fully open or closed position increase the force by turning
the force control slightly. Run operator through a complete
cycle.
NOTE: Weather conditions can affect the gate movement,
so seasonal adjustment may be required. The force
control is factory set to the mid position.
