SAFETY SUMMARY
It is important for everyone involved in the installation and operation of the LiftMaster model SW
2000-B1 Swing Gate Operator reads the following warnings.
WARNING!
•
A vehicle gate is a large, heavy object that is moved by an electric motor. A moving
gate can cause serious injury or death! The safety and well-being of others depends
on the installation of a safe system.
•
Improper installation of a gate operator can result in a dangerous system.
•
Gate operators can present serious hazards to persons in the immediate area when
not controlled in a safe manner. Choose one or more controls which together will
allow complete control of the gate. Most importantly, the gate must be able to be
stopped at all times in case of emergency, and the emergency control should be
conveniently located, clearly marked and visible.
•
All controls must be kept out of the reach of small children. Serious injury or death
can result from children playing with the controls.
•
All controls should be located so the person operating them can see the full area of
gate movement.
•
Gate operators and associated control equipment should be installed by qualified
professional installers who should observe the following safe installation
procedures:
1. Power should always be disconnected whenever installing, wiring or servicing a
gate operator. Moving chains and belts in gate operators can catch clothing or
fingers and cause severe injury.
2. Installation of wiring should comply with all local building and electrical codes.
3. All manual gate locks should be disabled to avoid damage to the gate or gate
operator should the lock become engaged after the operator is installed.
4. All operator controls and safety equipment should be tested at the conclusion of
installation to be sure they are functioning properly.
5. The operation of the gate controls and safety equipment should be reviewed with
the owner and/or end user of the automated gate system. They should also be
informed of the need to maintain control and safety equipment on a regular basis.
Safety equipment should be checked monthly to ensure it is working properly. All
installation manuals and safety information should be left with the owner.
6. Moving gates have pinch points and entrapment zones which can be extremely
dangerous to pedestrians, especially small children.

BASIC INSTALLATION HINTS AND RULES
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR INSTALLATION.
The sections that follow contain detailed procedures for installation of a model SW 2000-B1 system. In
addition to these specific procedures, there are a number of general hints and rules which will help
ensure that your installation will be done correctly and efficiently. These are discussed below.
1. UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM AND INSTALLATION SITE THOROUGHLY. The SW 2000-B1 is a
flexible and reliable gate operator system, but the quality of service depends directly on the quality of
installation. Please read these instructions carefully and study the applicable diagrams before planning
your installation. In particular, understand any site characteristics that may affect the system
installation.
WARNING
2. INSTALL PERMANENT WIRING. U.L. specifications require the SW 2000-B1 system to be
permanently wired. Refer to your local wiring code for specific information.
WARNING: Damage caused by faulty wiring is not covered by warranty.
3. GROUND THE SYSTEM. The system contains parts which may be damaged by static discharge. A
proper earth ground connected to the gate operator housing (see Figure 3) will significantly reduce the
chances of damage or improper operation. The shielding in the cables specified for all remote sensors
and controls should also be connected to earth ground at the controller end of the cable only.
To be effective, the ground connection must be made by running 12 awg copper wire to a good ground
point (e.g., an electrical panel, a metallic cold water pipe that runs into the earth, or a grounding rod at
least 10 feet in length that is driven into the earth) within 12 feet of the system. Even if you have a
good earth ground, you should try to discharge any static before handling the circuit boards.
WARNING: Damage caused by static discharge and lightning is not covered by warranty.
4. PROVIDE POWER FROM A DEDICATED SOURCE. The outlet into which you connect the Gate
Operator should be wired to its own circuit breaker. This will reduce the line noise introduced into
system power and minimize the risk of having other equipment interrupt system operation. In a
Master/Slave system, Master and Slave must each have separate circuits.
5. DO NOT OVERLOAD THE TERMINAL BLOCKS. The terminal blocks used in the gate operator are
removable and the pins are soldered into the boards. To connect your wires, remove the "head" from
the correct terminals and open the screws. Insert the wire into the correct opening on the front and
tighten the screw until the wire is held firmly. When you have made all connections for a given "head",
plug it back onto the pins designated for that terminal block.
Stranded wire must be between 16 and 24 awg. Solid wire must be between 18 and 24 awg. This is
the total thickness measurement so, if you are putting two wires in, the combined thickness must fall
within this range. NEVER try to insert more than two wires per terminal.
6. ENSURE GOOD CONNECTIONS. A light tug on the wire will tell you if the connection is secure.
When reconnecting system components, make sure all pins are straight on chips, connectors, and
terminal block heads.
7. READ THE MARKINGS CAREFULLY. The connection points are marked on the boards clearly.
Before making any connection, be sure to read the marking and check it against the corresponding
figure in these instructions so that you understand the connection you are making.
8. TRAIN YOUR CUSTOMERS THOROUGHLY. Although customer responsibility is limited to proper
installation, the quality of service is determined by the care of system setup. Ensure that the customer
has a copy of this manual to guide them. It will save you and them lots of inconvenience and
aggravation later.

LOCATION AND LAYOUT
Figure 1. Gate Operator Layout Options.
•
•
NOTES
Left Gate and Right Gate are determined by looking from inside the complex toward the street.
Figure 1 shows a typical Bi-Parting gate in standard and compact installations.
1. Always install gate operators inside of the fence line, NEVER on the public side of the fence.
2. Mount all manual controls and activating devices at least 6 ft. away from the gate for safety.
3. Allow enough clearance around the gate and the gate operator for installation and service.

PAD AND MOUNT
Figure 2. Pad and Mount.
1. The concrete pad must be sufficient to support the gate operator and the dynamic forces
created by the moving gate. LiftMaster recommends a pad 24” wide by 27” long by 30” deep.
2. The operator must be level and parallel to the gate, so the pad should be level and about 4”
above grade to prevent water entrance.
3. Four anchor bolts are required to secure the gate operator to the pad. The mounting holes in
the gate operator are 5/8” in diameter. Red Head bolts ½” x 3½“ are recommended.
4. Be sure to provide access for wiring conduits. In Master/Slave systems, remember to include
conduit stubs for separate inputs (if any) and for the Master/Slave connection cable between
gate operators.
NOTE: Shading indicates conduit stub access areas .

POWER WIRING
1. Provide a separate conduit stub for the AC power.
2. Each gate operator requires a 115 VAC 20 AMP single phase circuit. NOTE: Master and
Slave units each require separate circuits to prevent false overcurrent faults.
3. Be sure to pull a ground wire in the conduit for the connection to the gate operator. Do not rely
on metallic conduit for earth ground.
D.
LOOP DETECTORS
1. The gate operator has a shelf that can support non-LiftMaster loop detector electronics.
Power for the loop detector can come from the auxiliary 115 VAC plugs in the gate operator or
from the 24 VAC provided by the gate operator control board.
2. Conduit provisions should be made for the “loop” wire entrance to the loop detector.
3. The shelf space provided is approximately 4” x 10” x 5” high. Shelf space on systems without
the Power Fail Operation Option is about 10" x 10" x 5".
NOTE: Optional LiftMaster-supplied loop detector add-on boards are available, both pre-installed
and for installation in the field. See Part 4, SW 2000-B1 Options.
E.
OTHER CONNECTIONS
Provisions should be made for conduit entrance into the gate operator for Master/Slave wiring and
external activating devices such as key switches, telephone entry systems, etc.

SETTING LIMIT CAMS
•
The limit cams are adjusted by loosening the locking screws and rotating the cams. The cams
rotate with the swing arm shaft, so small adjustments are magnified by the length of the gate.
•
The gate operator torque limiter allows the gate to be pushed or pulled a short distance (a few
inches) only. Use manual controls to move the gate during limit cam adjustment.
•
To avoid damage to the gate and gate operator due to the gate overrunning its limits, perform
the following steps carefully:
1. SETTING RIGHT GATE LIMIT CAMS
Figure 7. Setting Right Gate Limit Cam.
1. Make sure that switch S2 is set to the "Left" position.
2. Turn on gate operator power switch.
3. Using manual CLOSE and STOP, move the gate to its proper closed limit position.
4. Loosen the locking screw on the bottom limit cam and turn the cam clockwise until it just barely
closes the limit switch.

I.
GATE SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENTS
The gate operator monitors both average and peak motor current. When the gate encounters an
obstruction, the gate operator senses the change in motor current and stops or reverses the gate.
Three sensitivity adjustments must be set in the field:
• Right gate motion (R78)
• Left gate motion (R81)
• Inrush current (R119)
NOTES: The Overload adjustment (R71) is factory set. Do not adjust.
Current flow varies with temperature. Do not tune the sensitivity measurements too
finely, or they may change with the time of day or seasons.
For swing gate operation, controls are Right/Clockwise and Left/Counterclockwise.
♦ If your installation requires setting switch S2 the “Open to Right” position, use the “Open to
Right" adjustment procedures below. If your installation requires setting S2 to the “Open to
Left” position, use the “Open to Left" adjustments following the "Open to Right" procedures.
♦ The minimum sensitivity is full clockwise and maximum sensitivity is full counter clockwise.
These adjustments must be made while the gate is in motion.
♦ Before starting the adjustments, verify that the Overload pot is set to 3:00 o'clock, the Left and
Right reverse pots are set fully clockwise, and the Inrush pot is set to the 11 o’clock position
(see Figure 9).
♦ Make all adjustments in the order listed.

ATG
When used with ATG, this switch controls several gate operator features:
Inside Interrupt Loop: four different modes are selectable:
SLIDE and ATG OFF: Loop activation prevents the gate from opening or closing. If
gate is moving, Loop activation stops the gate. When the Loop clears, the gate
resumes its course.
SLIDE only ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from closing. If gate is closing, Loop
activation opens the gate and starts the Reclose Timer, if timer is on.
ATG only ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from opening or closing. If gate is
closing, a Loop activation stops the gate. When the Loop clears, the gate resumes
closing. If the gate is opening or fully open, as soon as the Loop clears, the gate
immediately begins closing to discourage tailgaters.
SLIDE and ATG ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from closing. When the Loop
clears, the gate resumes closing. If gate is opening or fully open, as soon as the
Loop clears, the gate immediately begins closing to discourage tailgaters.
Dynamic Braking: When SLIDE is ON, gate brakes whenever it stops.
When SLIDE is OFF, gate brakes only at open or close limit.
Sets the Reclose Timer to OFF (left) or ON (right). When enabled, the timer controls
how long the gate waits at the open limit before closing. The Reclose Timer can be
set from 0-250 seconds by adjusting the Reclose Timer pot (R94). During a power
outage, if the gate is fully open and TIMER is ON, the Reclose Timer starts after the
restoration of power, causing the fully open gate to close automatically.
Sets the Retry function to OFF (left) or ON (right). When enabled, if the gate meets
an obstacle, a closing gate reverses and an opening gate stops, waits 30 seconds,
then tries to resume. The gate will re-try twice before it faults out.
(S1-4)
Sets Anti-Tailgate function to OFF (left) or ON (right). The Anti-Tailgate feature helps
prevent two cars from entering on one OPEN command.

POWER FAIL OPERATION OPTION CONNECTION
a)
Power Fail Operation Option Connection
CAUTION
Perform the next step (battery hookup) with care. Interchanging battery wires temporarily
opens the the resettabale fuse on gate operator board, disabling the power fail option.
To ensure a safe installation, the gate operator is shipped with the battery partially
disconnected from the Power Fail Option electronics. To enable this option:
•
b)
Connect white/red wire of option harness to positive (+) battery terminal.
Power Fail Operation Option Test
NOTES:
•
The following procedures require turning main power to the gate operator off and on at its
dedicated circuit breaker. DO NOT shut off the Gate Operator Power switch unless
specifically directed by the procedure, since this will shut off everything, including the
Power Fail Operation option.
•
Because the battery may not be fully charged at the time of the test, we strongly suggest
moving the gate only one foot when performing the power fail test.
1. Set Power Fail switch S3 to the same position as switch S2 (Figure 4).
2. Turn on gate operator power switch.
3. Using the manual controls (Figure 5), initiate gate opening, then stop the gate about one
foot short of its fully open position.
4. Turn off main power to the gate operator. After about one minute the gate should start
opening and stop at its fully open limit.
5. Turn on main power to the gate operator.
6. Set Power Fail switch S3 to the opposite position.
7. Using the manual controls, initiate gate closing, then stop the gate about one foot short of

NOTES
1. Disconnecting the STOP terminal from the COMMON terminal stops the gate and prevents
all commands from having any effect.
2. Inside and Outside Interrupt Loops:
M.
•
For safety and proper gate operation, gate(s) must open toward the Inside Interrupt loop.
•
For maximum safety, Inside and Outside Interrupt loops require separate loop detectors.
•
If only one loop detector is used, the Outside loop must also be connected to the Inside loop
detector.
•
In Bi-Parting and Bi-Parting Latch Master/Slave systems, to enhance system safety,
Interrupt loops, Shadow loops and Interrupt Bar switches may be connected to both gates.
If this is done, when connecting the two control boards, do not interchange input and
common terminals. If terminals are interchanged, inputs will not be detected and
controller boards may be damaged.
POST INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
1. Setup
1. Turn on the main power at the gate operator's circuit breaker.
2. Verify that switch S2 (the Gate Open Direction switch) is set to the correct position.
3. Turn on the unit power switch (on master/slave systems, turn on slave and then master).
2. Manual inputs
1. Verify that Manual Open fully opens the gate and that the open limit switch stops the gate.
2. Verify that Manual Close fully closes the gate and that the close limit switch stops the gate.
3. Verify that Manual Stop stops the gate.
Note: If the gate stops due to a Reverse Fault, readjust the gate sensitivity pot.
3. Mechanical
Use the Manual Input commands to verify that:
1. The gate swings open and closed smoothly.
2. There is no squeak or vibration in the gate when it is moving .
3. There is no belt and torque limiter slippage when the gate moves or stops.
4. There is no slack in the closed gate due to loose chain or parts.
5. Both gates open and close at the same time (Bi-Parting gates only).
4. Gate sensitivity
1. Left/Right Reverse sensitivity:
Apply a bump to the opening and closing gate and verify that the gate stops or reverses.
2. Inrush (Gate response time) :
Apply a bump to the gate as it initiates opening and closing and verify that the gate
responds to the bump within a second.
20 of 53
Doc 6001242 (01-20273)
Rev C
5. Maximum Retry Count
1. If you want the gate to resume operation automatically up to 2 times, 30 seconds after a
Fault, set RETRY on switch S1 to ON.
2. If you do not want the gate to resume automatically after a Fault, set RETRY on switch S1
to OFF.
3. Give the opening gate a quick bump to generate a fault and verify retry operation.
6. Entry inputs
1. Activate the CYCLE input (entry system), RADIO input (radio transmitter), and EXIT Loop
input (driving over the exit loop) and verify that they fully open the gate. If Reclose Timer is
ON, it will close the gate.
2. Activate the FIRE input (fire department switch) and verify that the gate fully opens and then
closes immediately. If Reclose Timer is ON, it will close the gate.
7. Alternate Action
1. If you want the CYCLE input (Entry system) or RADIO input (Transmitter) to both open and
close the gate, on switch S1 set TIMER to OFF and ATG to OFF.
2. Activate the CYCLE command, wait until the gate is fully open, then activate the CYCLE
command again. The gate should close, verifying Alternate Action operation.
Note: If you select Alternate Action, you cannot use ATG = ON and TIMER = ON in
procedures 8 and 9 that follow.
8. Reclose Timer
1. If you want a fully open gate to automatically close after a period of time, on switch S1, set
TIMER to ON and adjust Reclose Timer pot R94 to set the time period.
2. If you don't want the gate to close automatically, on switch S1, set TIMER to OFF.
3. Activate any entry command (except Manual OPEN) to open the gate and verify the
Reclose Timer operation.
NOTE: Reclose Timer is not functional when the Manual Open command is used.
9. Inside Interrupt Loop and ATG (when exiting)
1. If you want the gate to stop when a vehicle drives onto the Interrupt Loop and to restart
when the vehicle drives off the Interrupt Loop, on switch S1, set SLIDE and ATG to OFF.
2. If you want the gate to stop when a vehicle drives onto the Interrupt Loop and to close when
the vehicle drives off the Interrupt Loop, on switch S1, set SLIDE to OFF and ATG to ON.
3. If you want a closing gate to open when a vehicle drives on the Interrupt Loop, on switch
S1, set SLIDE to ON and ATG to OFF.
4. If you want a closing gate to stop when a vehicle drives on the Interrupt Loop and an
opening or closing gate to close when the vehicle drives off the Interrupt Loop, on switch
S1, set SLIDE and ATG to ON.
5. Activate the CYCLE command, drive over the Interrupt Loop, and verify its operation.

10. Shadow Loop
1. Ensure the gate is fully closed (the close limit switch and Maglock LED’s will be ON).
2. Park a car, while it is running, on the Shadow Loop but clear of the Interrupt Loop.
3. Activate an open command and verify that the gate does not open
CAUTION: If the gate begins to open, move the car immediately.
4. Remove the car from the Shadow Loop and verify that an open command opens the gate.
NOTE: In a Bi-Parting Master/Slave system, BOTH gates must be at either the fully open or
fully closed limit for the Shadow loop input to be effective.
11. Interrupt Bar
While the gate is opening , push on the Interrupt Bar. The gate should stop.
12. Maglock
Verify that the maglock activates when the gate is fully closed.
13. Automatic Gate Closure
1. To automatically close a fully open gate after power is restored, on switch S1, set TIMER to
ON.
2.
Open the gate fully, then cycle the unit power switch to verify Automatic Gate Closure
operation.
14. Power Fail Option
3. Verify that switch S3 (Power Fail Open Direction switch) is set to the desired position
(Figure 4).
4. Record switch S3 setting in the space provided in the Maintenance Section.
It is essential that maintenance personnel know what the gate will do when power is
turned off during maintenance.

PART 3
MASTER/SLAVE OPERATION
A.
WHAT IS MASTER/SLAVE OPERATION?
The easy way to understand master/slave operation is by the computer terms "smart" and "dumb."
• "Smart" machines are controlled by a computer or dedicated microprocessor, such as microwave
ovens and new-style washing machines.
• "Dumb" machines are controlled by simple electronic or physical mechanisms, like old-style
washing machines with their cams and timers.
When your installation requires using two gates together, they can be controlled either by the "dumb"
method of wiring them in parallel and using limit cams and reclose timers for control (see Appendix B),
or the "smart" method of enabling the Master/Slave programming built into the gate operators.
LiftMaster gate operators are capable of handling any gate combination you're likely to need, and we
strongly recommend using the "smart" method for the following reasons:
1. Synchronization: Gate actions (opening, closing, etc.) are synchronized in Master/Slave
operation.
2. Added safety: A fault in one unit affects both units, providing added safety to the system.
3. Reduced wiring: Inputs (radio, exit loops, etc.) need be wired to only one unit in some Master/
Slave configurations.
4. Simplified gate setting: Gate controls (ATG, Reclose Timer, etc.) only need to be set in one unit
in some Master/Slave configurations.
Let's take a quick look at some Master/Slave gate configurations, cover the wiring and setup
procedures, then go into the details of each type to help plan your installation.
B.
MASTER/SLAVE GATE CONFIGURATIONS
LiftMaster models SL 1000-B1 (slide gate), SW 2000-B1 (swing gate) and BG 3000-B1 (barrier gate)
can be teamed as Master/Slave systems in the following configurations:
Figure 14. Master/Slave Gate Configurations.
•
•
24 of 53
In the Master/Slave configuration, one Master unit controls one Slave unit.
Master and Slave units communicate at 9600 baud via a 4-wire interconnection cable.
Doc 6001242 (01-20273)
Rev C
C.
MASTER/SLAVE WIRING
Connecting Master and Slave units is fast and easy:
•
Master/Slave connections are made through the SLAVE I/O terminal block (TB1), located at
the top right corner of the gate operator controller board (see Figure 15, below).
•
Connect the Receive inputs (RECV1, RECV2) on each board to the Transmit inputs (XMIT1,
XMIT2) on the other board.
•
To prevent cross-talk between Master/Slave wires and power or input wires, use shielded
cable or run the Master/Slave wires in a separate conduit.
•
Use two 18-14 AWG twisted pair wires or a shielded cable containing 2 twisted pair wires for
Master/Slave Interconnection.
•
To ensure a reliable communication between Master and Slave units, the maximum allowable
wire length is 3000 feet.
NOTE
Be sure to connect the two units correctly. Improper wiring of the Master/Slave interconnection prevents proper operation of the system.

MASTER/SLAVE SETUP PROCEDURE
1.
Be sure to turn off both gate operator units.
2.
Connect Master and Slave units as described and shown in paragraph C and Figure 15, above.
3.
Set Switch S1 on Master and Slave units to your gate configuration according to the table, below.
NOTES
•
If, before power up, the Master/Slave connection is broken, one of the units is turned off, or one of
the controller boards malfunctions, the gates will operate in stand alone configuration.
•
If the Master/Slave connection is broken after power up, it prevents either gate from moving.

HOW IT WORKS:
• The gates in a Bi-Parting configuration are mirror images of each another and act identically.
• A fault in one unit affects both units (see Troubleshooting/Maintenance for Fault List).
• A continuous FIRE input in either gate opens the gates and holds them open.
There are 3 different ways to close the gates (entering or exiting):
1. Reclose Timer: When the Reclose Timer expires, gates close automatically.
2. ATG and Interrupt Loop: With ATG ON, clearing the Inside Interrupt Loop closes the gates.
3. Alternate Action: With ATG and TIMER OFF, RADIO or CYCLE commands will close fully-opened gates.
INPUT CONNECTIONS: (for more details, refer to paragraph L, Connecting Input Wiring)
• Inputs can be connected to either gate, but do not need to be connected to both. However, for
enhanced safety, the Interrupt Bar, Interrupt Loop, and Shadow Loop inputs may be connected to both
gates.

Figure 17. Typical Bi-Parting Latch Gate Installation
HOW IT WORKS:
• The Master moves first during opening and Slave first during closing, with a 2 second delay
between them to prevent gate intercollision and to ensure proper latching. When the gates are fully
closed, the outer edge of the Master gate rests on the outer edge of the Slave.
• A fault in one unit affects both units (see Troubleshooting/Maintenance for Fault List).
• A continuous FIRE input in either gate opens the gates and holds them open.
There are 3 different ways to close the gates (entering or exiting):
1. Reclose Timer: When the Reclose Timer expires, gates close automatically.
2. ATG and Interrupt Loop: With ATG ON, clearing the Inside Interrupt Loop closes the gates.
3. Alternate Action: With ATG and TIMER OFF, RADIO or CYCLE commands close fully open gates.
WARNING: The Power Fail Operation Option can be used ONLY on the Master Unit. To maintain all
gate functions during power outages, use a full UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) on each unit.
INPUT CONNECTIONS: (for more details, refer to paragraph L, Connecting Input Wiring)

3. TRAP GATE DETAILS
The Trap gate is typically used in secured sites for screening incoming and/or outgoing traffic. In the
Trap configuration, only one gate opens at a time, "trapping" the vehicle between gates. Due to its
ease of use, Slide gates are most popular for the Trap configuration. The Trap configuration can
consist of any LiftMaster model for Master, and a model SL 1000-B1 (slide gate) or BG 3000-B1
(barrier gate) for Slave. NOTE: The SW 2000-B1 (swing gate) may not be used for Slave.

HOW IT WORKS:

•
In normal operation, one gate must completely close before the other opens, so only one gate is
open at a time. As soon as one gate closes, the second gate automatically opens. If the second
gate does not open within 10 seconds, the first gate reopens to let the vehicle exit the trap area.
•
ATG (Anti-TailGating) is always active for both Master and Slave gates. Each gate closes as soon
as its Inside Interrupt loop clears.
•
Faults and Manual Input Commands in one unit affect both units.
•
A continuous FIRE or Manual OPEN input in either gate opens the gates and holds them open.
•
If a vehicle stalls between the gates and they close, they can be opened by a CYCLE or RADIO
command, or by driving over: the Master unit Outside Interrupt Loop, the Slave unit Inside Interrupt
Loop (SLIDE=ON only), or the (optional) Exit Loop.

There are 2 different ways to close the gate (entering or exiting):
1. Reclose Timer: When the Reclose Timer expires, gate closes automatically (Master or Slave).
2. Interrupt Loop; clearing the Inside Interrupt Loops cause the gates to close (Master or Slave).
NOTE: To ensure gate closure, set Reclose Timer =ON in both Master and Slave

4. TANDEM GATE DETAILS
The Tandem gate is typically used in high traffic situations where some control of incoming and/or
outgoing traffic is required. The outside gate is usually a less expensive, fast moving barrier gate (or
light slide gate) which protects the more expensive and less mobile Slide or Swing inside gate. The
outside gate does this by stopping the vehicle until the inside gate is completely open. The Tandem
configuration can consist of any LiftMaster model for Master, and a model SL 1000-B1 (slide gate) or
BG 3000-B1 (barrier gate) for Slave. NOTE: The SW 2000-B1 (swing gate) may not be used for
Slave.

HOW IT WORKS:
Rev C
•
When a vehicle is entering or exiting, the inside Master gate opens first. When the Master is
completely open, the outside Slave gate opens, allowing the vehicle to enter or exit.
•
The Master unit Reclose Timer (if enabled) does not start counting down until the Slave unit is fully
closed. Since ATG is not allowed in the Master unit, if the Reclose Timer is not enabled, the
Master gate will remain open.
•
During high traffic hours, the slower-moving Master gate can be latched open by a continuous
Manual Open input, leaving the faster moving Slave gate to control entering and exiting traffic.
•
If a vehicle stalls between the gates and they close, they can be opened by a CYCLE or RADIO
command, or by driving over: the Slave unit Inside Interrupt Loop (SLIDE=ON only), or (optional)
Exit Loop.
•
A fault in one unit affects both units (see Troubleshooting/Maintenance for Fault List).

•
A continuous FIRE input in either gate opens both gates and holds them open.
•
A continuous Manual STOP in either gate stops both gates.
There are 2 different ways to close the gate after entering or exiting:
1. Reclose Timer: When the Reclose Timer expires, the gates close automatically (Master or Slave).
2. ATG and Interrupt Loop: When ATG is ON, clearing the Inside Interrupt Loop causes the gate to
close (Slave unit only).

MODEL SW 2000-B1 OPTIONS
A.
LIFTMASTER LOOP DETECTOR BOARDS
The model SW 2000-B1 has connectors for four LiftMaster-supplied loop detector add-on boards.
These boards interface with Interrupt, Shadow and Exit loop sensors, which simply plug into the control
board. The add-on boards can be ordered pre-installed, or can be installed in existing model SW
2000-B1 units.
B.
POWER FAIL OPERATION OPTION
The LiftMaster Power Fail Operation Option may be ordered pre-installed in new units, or can be
purchased separately for installation in LiftMaster gate operator systems in the field. The Power Fail kit
includes a DC motor, belt, battery, battery support bracket assembly (includes bracket, 3 control relays,
rectifier and wire harness) and mounting hardware. Features of the Power Fail Option are as follows:
•
The Power Fail Operation system fully opens or closes the the gate (User's choice) one minute
after a power outage. The gate will remain open or closed until AC power is restored.
•
When AC power is restored, the battery is charged up to its full potenial, then continuously trickle
charged. Recharging takes from one to five hours, depending on the weight of the gate and how
far it moved during the outage. The age of the battery also increases the battery charging time.
NOTE: Battery capacity decreases over time. Battery should be replaced every two or three years.
•
The charging section and controls for the Power Fail Operation are located on the control board.
•
The motor sensing potentiometers (Right reverse, Left reverse, and Inrush) on the Gate Operator
board may require readjustment if the Power Fail Operation option is installed in the field.
•
Gate speed may be slightly reduced with the Power Fail Operation option installed.
IMPORTANT NOTE
During a power outage, all Gate Operator safety features are
disabled and only the limit switches stop movement of the gate.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
A.
TROUBLESHOOTING
This section is designed to help you troubleshoot your unit(s) with a minimum of effort. Directly below
are some hints to help you test, then a list of problems in order of most severe to least. Next comes a
quick-reference list of faults and how to clear them, and then a list of faults and their causes.
Testing Control Board inputs: To test an input, connect the input terminal to the COMMON
terminal on the Control Board and verify that its LED turns on momentarily. Normally, the Close
limit switch and Maglock LED's are on if the gate is fully closed, and Open limit switch and
Reclose Timer LED's are on if the gate is fully open. The Power ON and Manual STOP LED's
are always on.
Low input AC voltage: The voltage across connector J3 pins 1 (red wire) and 3 (white wire)
on the Control Board must measure 100VAC to 130VAC.
CAUTION HIGH VOLTAGE. Measure with care.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING
To avoid injury, always turn off the unit power switch before working on gate.
Regularly performance of preventive maintenance is essential for reliable system operation
because it corrects small problems before they turn into emergencies. LiftMaster recommends
performing preventive maintenance every 6 to 12 months, depending upon the amount of gate
usage.
•
If the gate is installed in a private residence or small apartment house where usage is not
severe, yearly preventive maintenance is acceptable
•
If the gate is installed in a high-traffic application, semi-annual preventive maintenance is
essential.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE TASKS
1. Gate Arm: Check for wear in the moving parts. Check for hardware tightness.
2. Gate: must swing freely without any impediment. Check hinges, grease if necessary.
3. Chain: Check for wear and tension. If loose, adjust tension with chain tensioner. Do not oil
chain.
4. Sprocket: must not be loose in the shaft. Tighten set screws if loose ➊.
5. Torque limiter: must not slip (factory setting is 75 ft.lb.). Tighten set screws if loose ➊.
6. Limit switches: contacts must bounce back rapidly when they are pressed and released.
7. Belt: Check for wear and tension (25 to 30 lb.). Adjust the AC motor up or down to set
proper tension.
8. Pulleys: must all line up and be firmly secured to their shafts. Tighten set screws if loose ➊.
9. Gear Box: Check for no oil leakage around the bushings. Do not oil gearbox.
10. Control board: Check for water damage or burned spots. All connectors secured to the
board.
11. Wiring: Check all wirings for any insulation damage. Check for loose wire connections.
12. No Rust: Check for rust throughout the unit. Check corners for water entrapment.
13. Fire Open: Activate Fire department switch to verify emergency gate opening.
14. Gate Sense: Check for the gate sensitivity (refer to Part 2, System Installation, paragraph I,
Gate Sensitivity Adjustments).
15. Power Fail Option: Check for proper operation (refer to Part 2, System Installation,
paragraph K, Power Fail Option Connection, item B, Power Fail Option Operation Test).
NOTES:
➊: To prevent loosening, two set screws are used in each hole and LOCTITE threadlocker
242 is applied.

CONTROLS
SWITCH S1 (OFF/ON DIP SWITCH)
SLIDE ACTION
(S1-1)
TIMER
When used with ATG, this switch controls several gate operator features:
Inside Interrupt Loop: four different modes are selectable:
SLIDE and ATG OFF: Loop activation prevents the gate from opening or closing. If
gate is moving, Loop activation stops the gate. When the Loop clears, the gate
resumes its course.
SLIDE only ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from closing. If gate is closing,
Loop activation opens the gate and starts the Reclose Timer, if timer is on.
ATG only ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from opening or closing. If gate is
closing, a Loop activation stops the gate. When the Loop clears, the gate
resumes closing. If the gate is opening or fully open, as soon as the Loop clears,
the gate immediately begins closing to discourage tailgaters.
SLIDE and ATG ON: Loop activation prevents the gate from closing. When the Loop
clears, the gate resumes closing. If gate is opening or fully open, as soon as the
Loop clears, the gate immediately begins closing to discourage tailgaters.
Dynamic Braking: When SLIDE is ON, gate brakes whenever it stops.
When SLIDE is OFF, gate brakes only at open or close limit.
Sets the Reclose Timer to OFF (left) or ON (right). When enabled, the timer
controls how long the gate waits at the open limit before closing. The Timer can be
set from 0-250 seconds by adjusting the Reclose Timer pot (R94). During a power
outage, if the gate is fully open and TIMER is ON, the Reclose Timer starts after
the restoration of power, causing the fully open gate to close automatically.
(S1-2)
RETRY
(S1-3)
ATG
Sets the Retry function to OFF (left) or ON (right). When enabled, if the gate meets
an obstacle, a closing gate reverses and an opening gate stops, waits 30 seconds,
then tries to resume. The gate will re-try twice before it faults out.
(S1-4)
Sets Anti-Tailgate function to OFF (left) or ON (right). The Anti-Tailgate feature
helps prevent two cars from entering on one OPEN command.
MASTER
In conjunction with the TRAP switch, sets configuration for master/slave system.

MAX RUN TIME
Indicates the motor ran for more than 75 seconds without reaching a limit
switch, and was stopped. Usually requires mechanical service. See
Fault List in Part 5, Troubleshooting and Maintenance.
REVERSE
Indicates the peak motor current threshold was reached. See Fault List
in Part 5, Troubleshooting and Maintenance.
OVERLOAD
Indicates that the average motor current threshold was reached. See
Fault List in Part 5, Troubleshooting and Maintenance.
OPEN MTR
Indicates the motor is engaged, but is not drawing any current. The
thermal overload switch on the motor may need to be reset. See Fault
List in Part 5, Troubleshooting and Maintenance.
FUNCTIONAL INPUTS
NOTES: ➊ The term "activation" means closing an input circuit (via a relay or switch), and may be
momentary or continuous. Momentary activations are superceded by any command.
Continuous activations are superceded only by an overriding command.
➋ Activating any command when gate is at the open limit stops the Reclose Timer. When
the command (except Manual CLOSE and STOP) is cleared, the Reclose Timer is reset.
MANUAL INPUTS: OPEN, CLOSE, AND STOP (TB2)
MAN OPEN
Activation fully opens the gate. Continuous activation holds gate open.
MAN OPEN overrides Anti-Tail-gate (ATG), Reclose Timer, and all controls
but MAN STOP.
MAN CLOSE
Activation fully closes the gate. Continuous activation holds gate closed.
MAN CLOSE overrides all controls but MAN STOP, MAN OPEN and FIRE.
MAN STOP
De-activation stops opening and closing gates. MAN STOP overrides
Reclose Timer and all other controls, manual or automatic. If MAN STOP is
disconnected from its COMMON, no commands affect the gate.
ENTRY SYSTEM/FIRE SWITCH INPUTS (TB9)
CYCLE
FIRE
Reclose Timer OFF:
Activation opens the gate, which remains open until another command is
received. A CYCLE command when the gate is fully open closes the gate.
This Alternate action allows a single command to both open and close the
gate. CYCLE also opens a closing gate. If Anti-Tailgating (ATG) is ON,
Alternate Action is disabled. With ATG ON, the gate begins closing as soon
as the INTERRUPT LOOP clears.
Reclose Timer ON:
Activation opens the gate, then the Reclose Timer closes the gate. A
CYCLE command also opens a closing gate, but will not close a fully open
gate if the Reclose Timer is ON. If Anti-Tailgating (ATG) is ON, the gate
closes as soon as the INTERRUPT LOOP clears.
Activation opens the gate. Continuous activation holds the gate open. If
Reclose Timer is OFF, when FIRE is deactivated, gate closes immediately.
If Reclose Timer is ON, when FIRE is deacitvated, the Reclose Timer starts.
FIRE overrides all commands but Manual STOP.
EXIT LOOP/SHADOW LOOP DETECTOR INPUTS (TB10)
EXIT LOOP
Rev C
Same as CYCLE, but does not close the gate when it is fully open.
Doc 6001242 (01-20273)
45 of 53
SHADOW LOOP Activation prevents the gate from opening or closing so the gate won't hit a
vehicle. If the gate is already moving, or if the gate is not fully opened or
closed, this input has no effect.
INSIDE/OUTSIDE INTERRUPT LOOP DETECTOR (TB16)
INSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with SLIDE "OFF" and ATG "ON"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from moving.
When the Interrupt loop clears, the gate begins closing.
Gate opening or closing: activation halts the gate. When the Interrupt
Loop clears, an opening gate closes and a closing gate resumes its course.
INSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with SLIDE "OFF" and ATG "OFF"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from moving.
Gate opening or closing: activation halts the gate. When the Interrupt
Loop clears, the gate resumes its course.
INSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with SLIDE "ON" and ATG "ON"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from closing.
When the Interrupt loop clears, the gate begins closing.
Gate opening or closing: activation halts a closing gate. When the
Interrupt Loop clears, an opening gate closes and a closing gate resumes its
course.
INSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with SLIDE "ON" and ATG "OFF"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from closing only.
Gate opening or closing: activation fully opens a closing gate and starts
the Reclose Timer if timer is "ON".
OUTSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with ATG "OFF"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from closing only.
Gate opening or closing: activation fully opens the closing gate and starts
the Reclose Timer if timer is "ON".
OUTSIDE
INTERRUPT LOOP with ATG "ON"
Gate fully open or closed: activation prevents the gate from closing only.
Gate opening or closing: activation prevents the gate from closing. When
the interrupt loop clears, the gate begins closing.
INTERRUPT BAR INPUTS (TB11)
INTERRUPT BAR Activation fully opens a closing gate and stops an opening gate. If RETRY
is ON, the gate waits 30 seconds, then tries to resume. The gate will re-try
twice before faulting out. If the Interrupt Bar remains active for more than 30
seconds, the gate will not retry.

Interrupt Loop SENSE
input, above.
OUTSIDE
Input from an Outside Interrupt loop provides the signal for an optional
INTERRUPT

Input from exit loop provides signal for optional LiftMaster loop detector addboard. Operation is the same as Exit Loop input, above.
RADIO INPUT (TB6)
RADIO RECV
Convenience terminals provide power (24VAC, 200mA) and signal
connection for a radio receiver. Activation is the same as CYCLE.
MAG LOCK INPUT (TB4)
MAG LOCK
NO and COM inputs can close a circuit (i.e., MagLock) when the Close Limit
switch is activated (the gate is fully closed).
NC and COM inputs close a circuit (security camera, camcorder, light, etc.)
when the Close Limit switch is deactivated (when gate is not fully closed).
SLAVE I/O INPUT (TB1)
SLAVE I/O
Input/output terminals are used to control a second gate operator in a
Master/Slave system.
ADJUSTMENTS
OVERLOAD
(R71)
Factory-set pot protects the gate operator from excessive motor current.
If RETRY is ON, when the limit is exceeded, a closing gate reverses a few
inches and stops, and an opening gate stops, waits 30 second, then tries to
resume. The gate will retry twice before faulting out.
NOTE: Gate may be more sensitive to drag in one direction than the other.
NOTE: For swing gate operation, controls are Right/Clockwise and Left/Counterclockwise.
REVERSE
RIGHT (R78)
Adjustable pot controls gate sensitivity to blockages by the instantaneous
rise in motor current. If RETRY is ON, when the limit is exceeded, a closing
gate opens fully and an opening gate stops, waits 30 seconds, then tries to
resume. The gate will retry twice before faulting out.
REVERSE
LEFT (R81)
Adjustable pot controls gate sensitivity to blockages by the instantaneous
rise in motor current. If RETRY is ON, when the limit is exceeded, a closing
gate opens fully and an opening gate stops, waits 30 seconds, then tries to
resume. The gate will retry twice before faulting out.
NOTE: LiftMaster gate operators have two reverse sense adjustments (left and right)
where other gate operators have only one. This allows greater flexibility of
installation. For instance, you can install a gate on an incline and not worry
about sacrificing downhill gate sensitivity.
Rev C
INRUSH
(R119)
Adjustable pot controls the delay in sensitivity to a reverse sense input.
This delay in sensitivity prevents the initial motor inrush current from
causing a fault condition. The weight of the gate determines this setting.
RECLOSE
TIMER (R94)
Adjustable pot controls the time delay between gate reaching full open and
starting to reclose. The Reclose Timer is adjustable from 0-250 seconds.

APPENDIX B
PARALLEL GATE WIRING
While it is strongly recommended that the Master/Slave function be used in any dual-unit installation,
two LiftMaster model SW 2000-B1's may be parallel-wired as Bi-Parting gates only.
NOTES:
1. When parallel wiring the RADIO INPUT terminals, do not connect the POWER output from one
board to the POWER output on the other board.
Failure to observe this will damage both controller boards.
2. Do not parallel wire the MAGLOCK terminals. Auxiliary device circuits may be damaged if
separate auxiliary devices are used with each board.
3. Both gate operators must have the same settings for:
a. Gate Setting Switch S1
b. Reclose Timer Pot
c. Current Sensitivity pots (Left & Right Reverse, Inrush)
d. Limit Cams
CAUTION
The Signal and Common terminals on one board MUST connect to the corresponding Signal and
Common terminals on the other board. Failure to observe this will damage both controller
boards.

GLOSSARY
AC: Alternating Current. An electric current or voltage that reverses direction at regular intervals.
Alternate Action: Ability to open and close a fully open gate by using the same open command.
Arc: The area that is swept by a swing gate from fully closed to fully open position.
ATG: Anti-tailgating refers to a method of immediately closing an opening gate behind a vehicle so
that an unauthorized vehicle can not follow the authorized vehicle through the gate.
DC: Direct Current. An electric current of constant value flowing in one direction only.
Dynamic braking: Stopping the gate by activating the forward and reverse windings of the gate
operator motor in each half AC cycle.
Fault: An abnormal condition which causes the gate to stop to protect the gate and the user.
Gate sensitivity: The response of the gate operator to an exerting force to the gate.
Gear Box: A device that changes the speed and power of its driving force (motor).
Inrush current: Initial current drawn into an electrical device due to its capacitive or inductive nature.
Interrupt Bar or Edge: A switch which is installed at the edge of a gate to protect an object which is
situated between the gate and the gate frame.
LED: Light Emitting Diode. LEDs are indicators placed on the controller board which light up to
indicate an action in the system.
Limit switch: A switch which its closure indicates the gate has reached its open or close limit, causing
the gate to stop. There are two limit switches, open and close.
Limit cam: An object which its excursion corresponds to the gate traveling distance and closes the
limit switch at the open or close limit of the gate.
Loop sensor: A wire embedded in the ground for magnetically sensing large metallic objects (cars).
✔ Exit or Open Loop: activation opens the gate.
✔ Interrupt or Reverse or Reopen Loop: activation reverses or stops the gate.
✔ Shadow Loop: activation prevents a fully open or closed gate from moving while a vehicle
is inside the arc of a swing gate.
Loop detector: An electronic device that is activated by a loop sensor sensing a metallic object.
Master/Slave: A synchronized system containing a pair of gate operators.
Maglock: An electric magnet which is used to secure the closed gate.
Power Fail Option: A battery backup system which opens or closes the gate at power outage.
Pulley: A grooved wheel which transfers power via a belt.
Reclose Timer: An electronic timer which closes the fully open gate automatically.
Retry: A condition at which the stopped gate resumes its course automatically after the occurrence of
a Fault.
RPM: Rotation Per Minute is a term to indicate the speed of an rotary object.
Sprocket: A toothed wheel which transfers power via a chain.
Thermal overload: A condition at which a heat producing device shuts off automatically when it
reaches a critical and damaging temperature level.
Torque: A force that causes rotation.
Torque Limiter: A clutch-like mechanism used to relieve excessive torque generated by the gate on
the gate operator.
