IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE GTO/PRO SL-1000/2000 AND GTO/PRO SL-1000B/2000B
AUTOMATIC SLIDE GATE OPERATORS
Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, all system designers, installers, and consumers
have an obligation to know the potential hazards associated with improperly designed, installed, or maintained gate
operator systems. Keep in mind that the gate operator is just one component of the total gate operating system.
Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with convenience, security, and safety.
This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the system designer, installer, and consumer.
Because there are many possible applications of the gate operator, the safety precautions and warnings contained in
this manual cannot be completely exhaustive in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the safe design,
installation, and use of this product. CAREFULLY READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS,
WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE THE SAFE SYSTEM DESIGN,
INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.
The precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this
warning symbol.
The
symbol identifies the conditions that can result in damage to the operator or its components, serious
injury, or death.
Because GTO automatic gate operators are only part of a total gate operating system, it is the responsibility
of the designer, installer, and purchaser to ensure the total system is safe for its intended use. Bypassing
safety devices or neglecting to use safety devices with the gate operator is NOT acceptable.
TO MANUALLY OPEN AND CLOSE THE GATE, FOLLOW
THE PROCEDURE BELOW:
CAUTION: Disconnect the
operator chain ONLY when the
gate is NOT moving.
1. Lift the quick release pins UP, then
pull them OUT of the chain brackets
(see illustration).
2. Lay the chain down and manually slide
the gate to the desired position.
Chain Bracket (204IH)
Quick Release Pin (211IH)
To prevent unauthorized removal of the
quick release pins, install pin locks (see
accessory catalog) above the quick release
pins in both chain brackets.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SYSTEM DESIGNER
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
FOR THE
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
This operator is intended for use only on vehicular gates. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate
walk-through gate (see Entrapment Protection on page 6).
3.
When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system
is placed far enough from the road to prevent traffic congestion.
FOR THE INSTALLER
WARNING-To reduce the risk of injury or death:
I. Before Installation
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, and its frequency of use.
3.
Make sure the gate has been properly installed and slides freely in both directions. Repair or replace all
worn or damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate
and will enhance the performance of the operator and safety devices used with the system.
4.
All openings of a horizontal slide gate must be guarded or screened to prevent a 21/4 inch diameter sphere
from passing through openings anywhere in the gate. This screen (or guard) must also be installed over the
portion of adjacent fence that the gate covers in the open position (see page 6).
5.
Review the operation of the system and become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to
disconnect the operator chain with the quick release pins for manual operation of the gate (see page 1).
6.
This gate operator is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for
pedestrian use (see page 6). NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF A MOVING GATE.
II. During Installation
1. Install the gate operator on the inside of the property and fence line. DO NOT install an operator on the
outside of the gate where the public has access to it.
2.
Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fingers or hands could be
pinched.
3.
Determine the best obstruction sensing setting for this installation. The gate MUST stop and reverse on
contact with an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force
or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to adjust and retest the gate operator properly
increases the risk of injury or death.
4.
Additional safety equipment such as roller guards and safety edges (or photoelectric sensors) MUST
be installed to prevent bodily injury (see page 6).
2
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
5.
Mount access controls away from the gate (minimum distance is 10 feet). The user must have full view
of the gate but be unable to touch it while operating the controls.
6.
Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate operator controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the
gate.
III. After Installation
1. Review ALL safety instructions with the consumer/end user and explain the basic operation and safety
systems of the entire gate operator system, including disconnecting the chain for manual gate operation.
2.
Inform the consumer/end user that servicing of the operator must only be done by an experienced
technician.
3.
Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert public of automatic gate operation.
Take a photo of warning signs installed on gate. Record the date of the photo for your reference.
4.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SECONDARY MEANS OF PROTECTION AGAINST ENTRAPMENT
As specified by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. UL 325 (31.1.1), automatic gate operators shall have provisions
for, or be supplied with, at least one independent primary and one independent secondary means to protect against
entrapment. GTO gate operators utilize Type A, an inherent entrapment sensing system, as the primary type of
entrapment protection. The GTO/PRO SL-1000/2000 and GTO/PRO SL-1000B/2000B gate operators have provisions
for the connection of Type B1 and B2 protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection.
1. For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor (Type B1) in accordance with UL 325 (31.1.6):
A. Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of
application.
B. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while
the gate is still moving.
C. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such
as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
2. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (31.1.10):
A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, trailing edge, and post mounted edge, both
inside and outside of a vehicular slide gate system.
B. A hard wired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the
sensor and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
C. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for
entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or
impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall
function under the intended end-use conditions.
ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 31.2.1)
The GTO/PRO SL-2000 and GTO/PRO SL-2000B operators are designed to stop and reverse for 2 seconds
when the gate comes in contact with an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors.
Additionally, these operators are equipped with an audio entrapment alarm which will function if the unit
obstructs twice while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for a period of 5 minutes or until the
operator receives an intended signal (e.g., transmitter signal) and the gate returns to a fully open or fully
closed position.

Insert a quick release pin into the center slot in each of the chain brackets
(see Illustration C). Tie a string to the end of each quick release pin so
that the string is tight between the two chain brackets (the string will
be used to align the operator). The string should be 7”-10” from the
ground (see Illustration B). The chain brackets can be adjusted up or
down on the gate to achieve the proper height. The goal here is to set
the height of the operator so that when the housing is in place it will
clear the ground by 1” to 4” (see Illustration E).

wide x 28” deep. Place the operator in the hole on its legs and
position the bottom idler sprockets on the top of the string and
level the unit (see Illustration E). Make sure operator is level
and plumb. With the unit level and in place, pour the concrete
and let set for 24 hours (checking the level periodically) before
proceeding to the next step.
BEFORE POURING CONCRETE: 1] Make sure operator is
centered between roller posts and aligned with string; and,

INSTALLATION OF THE GTO TRANSFORMER
Choose the electrical outlet into which the transformer will be plugged. Measure the distance from the electrical
outlet to the control box, following the path where the low voltage wire will run (the maximum distance can be
no more than 1000 ft.).
NOTE: Transformer must be connected with no more than 1000 ft. of 16 gauge multi-stranded, dual conductor,
direct burial low voltage wire.
Predicting the exact maximum number of operational cycles at peak load is more of an art form than an exact
science. The charts below illustrate the average maximum number of cycles (the “MNC”) in a 24 hour period on
a typical single gate, and is installed such that the motor draws 10 amperes to move the gate.

NOTE: Cycles shown are for single gate, dual gates will get approximately half as many cycles.
1) The MNC for the GTO/PRO SL-2000 is roughly comparable to most AC powered operators, and the transformer
provided with this operator should handle most high traffic situations. If the battery does not seem to be able to
provide the constant charge required for your application, the addition of the GTO/PRO 24 Amp Hour Battery
Kit (see Accessoy Catalog) should provide ample power to handle any situation. For more information, call
GTO’s service department at 1-800-543-1236.
16
INSTALLATION OF THE GTO TRANSFORMER CONT.
2) If the gate is binding or dragging, or if ball bearing rollers are not used, it will require more than 10 amps to
move it. This will reduce the MNC.
3) The charts are based on the transformer being plugged into an outlet that provides a line voltage of 120 volts; if
the outlet provides less than 120 volts (for example, some rural areas may only provide 105 volts), it can reduce
the MNC by as much as 50%.
4) A fully charged standard battery has an inherent reserve of 20-50 cycles without requiring a charge. This allows
peak loads at several points during the day, depending upon how much time the transformer has to provide a
charge to the battery between cycles. The transformer is capable of fully recharging the battery in as little as
five minutes at optimum conditions.
5) The charts on page 16 are based upon an ambient temperature of 40º F. Battery performance and speed at which
it will recharge will fluctuate based upon temperature.
6) The MNC for dual gate applications will be about 50% less of those for a single gate.
IMPORTANT:
• The GTO transformer is intended for indoor use. If the transformer can only be plugged into
an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof housing or cover (available at electrical supply
stores) must be used.
• Use of a surge protector is highly recommended.
• Optional Solar Panels are available from a GTO dealer; see Accessory Catalog.
• The GTO/PRO 24 Amp Hour Battery Kit is required for the SL-2000 in solar applications,
see Accessory Catalog.
NOTE: If your are considering using the GTO solar panel to maintain the system battery
charge, please see the following chart:

CONTROL BOARD SETTINGS
DIP SWITCHES
The four DIP switches on the control board match the operator with the type of gate on which it is mounted.
For example, gates may open right to left or left to right. Prior to packaging, the GTO/PRO SL-1000 and
SL-2000 series control board was configured for a single slide gate that opens right to left. If your gate type
matches this configuration, you DO NOT need to adjust the DIP switches. Proceed to the Potentiometers
section on the next page. NOTE: The direction a gate opens is determined by standing inside the property and
facing toward the gate.
NOTE: To change the DIP switch settings, you must turn the control box power switch OFF; move the
switch; then turn the power back ON. Use a small screwdriver to
move the switches.

INERTIA: Fine tunes obstruction sensitivity in the opening and closing
modes. INERTIA allows the operator to attempt to push an obstruction clear
of the gate path. When INERTIA is set to MIN the operator will obstruct
quickly (i.e, will attempt to push an obstruction briefly); when set to MAX the
operator will obstruct slowly (i.e., will push against an obstruct for a longer
period). The factory setting is MIN.
MAX
LEARN

AUTO CLOSE (auto close timer): Determines how long the gate will remain
open before it automatically closes. The limits are OFF to 120 seconds. The
factory setting is OFF.
OBSTRUCT SENS. (obstruction sensitivity): Determines the amount of force
exerted by the gate on an obstruction before the operator stops and reverses.
The gate will exert minimum force before obstructing when set to MIN. When
set to MAX, the operator will exert maximum gate force before obstructing
(i.e., the operator will require greater resistance before stopping and reversing.). The factory setting is MIN.
READ WARNING BELOW!
NOTE: Heavy gates and gates with high wind resistance may require the OBSTRUCT SENS. potentiometer to be set closer to MAX to prevent the operator from obstructing. Keep in mind, however, that while you must determine
the best setting for smooth gate operation, you must ALSO determine the lowest possible setting for safe gate operation.
ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST WHEN ADJUSTING OR SERVICING
YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR!
WARNING!
All three potentiometers were set to minimum at the factory. The OBSTRUCT SENS.
potentiometer MUST be adjusted above the factory setting for your GTO/PRO SL-1000 or
SL-2000 operator to function properly. If the potentiometer is left at MIN, your gate operator
may “obstruct” (i.e., stop and reverse) as soon as it is activated.
BE SURE TO PROPERLY RETEST THE GATE OPERATOR AFTER MAKING ANY
ADJUSTMENTS; FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR
DEATH.

SETTING THE PERSONAL TRANSMITTER CODE
All GTO transmitters are set to a standard code at the factory and are ready to activate the automatic gate operator.
For safety and security, however, we strongly recommend that the factory setting be replaced with a personal
code. Follow the directions below:
1. REMOVE THE TRANSMITTER COVER
On the back of the transmitter use a small phillips head screw driver
to remove the two screws on the sides of the visor clip and separate
the front cover from the transmitter. With the front cover removed,
the battery and the DIP switches will be exposed. To set a new code,
use a small screwdriver to move the switches.

MOUNTING THE RECEIVER
Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting it.
Consider the following when mounting the receiver:
• Receiver cable length is 20 feet (receivers with a longer cable are available as special
order items; Call the GTO Sales Department). NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the cable through PVC conduit to protect it from damage.
• DO NOT run cable through metal conduit because the receiver signal range will be
decreased.
• DO NOT run cable in a conduit containing AC wiring.
• DO NOT mount receiver on a metal fence or post; doing so will decrease signal
range.
• DO NOT overtighten the mounting screws.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography,
and external interference.
FCC Regulation
This device complies with FCC rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference.
2. This device must accept an interference that may cause undesired operation.

CONNECTING SAFETY DEVICES
The GTO/PRO SL-1000 and SL-2000 series operators are equipped with built-in obstruction sensitivity. These
operators are designed to stop and reverse the gate for 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction.
However, obstruction sensitivity, even when properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily
injury. For this reason, safety edges or photoelectric sensors MUST be installed on the gate. Safety edges (or
photoelectric sensors) must be mounted in compliance with Underwriters Laboratories’ safety standard for gate
operators, UL 325. Review page 6 for information about mounting requirements for safety edges and photoelectric sensors.
Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions for information about installing these devices on a vehicular
gate.
Make sure the control box power switch is OFF before connecting safety device wiring to the terminal
blocks.
Insert the safety device wires into the CLS EDG terminal (located on the FIRST OPERATOR terminal block)
for the gate closing mode. Ground the safety device at the GRN terminal. Connect the safety device wires for
the gate opening mode to the OPN EDG terminal in the same manner.

ATTACHING THE HOUSING
Mount the operator housing after
all installation procedures are
complete. Slide operator housing
over legs, align holes, and use
screws provided to attach housing
to operator.
IMPORTANT
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT: Hang the two (2)
GTO Warning Signs (provided)
on both sides of the gate before
operating. Make sure all warning
signs and labels are in place. Make
sure that the packet containing
end user safety instructions and
warranty procedures remains
attached to the operator housing
(as shown in the illustration).
Review the safety precautions & operator warranty procedures contained in
packet (attached to the operator housing) with the customer. Leave packet
attached to the housing for future reference.
27
MAINTENANCE
The GTO Slide Gate Operator is designed for minimum maintenance. However, for optimum performance and
safety, the following maintenance procedures should be taken:
GATE
Having a well maintained gate will ensure that the operator runs smoothly and safely. Make sure gate is hung
level and plumb. Check and adjust periodically. Lubricate rollers periodically with grease appropriate for the
coldest weather in your area.
SAFETY EDGES
Periodically test the safety edges to make sure they are functioning correctly. If they are not, discard and replace
immediately.
CONTROL DEVICES
From time to time, check to ensure that all of the control devices connected to the operator are functioning. This
is especially important for safety devices.
OPERATOR
Occasionally inspect the chain to ensure that it is well lubricated, and oil the chain as necessary. Use CHAIN
AND CABLE LUBE for best results. Check the gear sprockets and grease them as needed. Check the rollers
and spray oil on them as needed.
28
TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
Maintenance:
• On all gates weighing 250 lb. or more, routinely grease the ball bearing rollers at least 4 times a year; grease
more frequently if the gates are near a coastal area.
• Keep a few mothballs in the control box to discourage insects from entering it and damaging the control
board.
• Have your gate operator tested monthly and serviced regularly by an experienced technician. The gate
MUST stop and reverse on contact with an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors.
If these functions are observed to operate improperly, discontinue use and have operator serviced
immediately.
The operator has a 12 Vdc motor with mechanical limit switches.
• To test the motor, put a voltmeter on DC and place the meter leads on the wire connections inside the plastic
cover above the switches. The reading should be at least 11.5 V when the system is active. If it is not, see The
Control Board section
• To test the switches, put the meter on “ohms.” Place the leads on each of the wires on the switch. You should
have an open circuit. Click the switch and you should have .2 ohms. Do this for both switches.
• To test the cable, put the meter on ohms. At one end of the cable place the lead on the green wire, and on the
other end of the cable place the lead on the green wire and the other wires. This should show a maximum of 1.0
ohms on the green wire and nothing on the other wires. Test each wire as you have above. If all have the proper
readings, then this is not the problem.
• Note: Inspect the cable for any signs of any punctures because wires inside the PVC jacket can be shorted and
the cable will still show proper ohms.
The control board: This is a micro processor board. The power that runs the gate is from the battery and recharged,
through the board only, by a 18 volt 40 VA. (2.9 A) transformer.
There is one (1) green and one (1) red LED (light emitting diode) on the control board. They are for a quick
reference only. All readings must be measured by a voltmeter!
The red light serves two purposes. The first is to aid in storing the personal transmitter code. See “Setting the
Personal Transmitter Code”.
The second is to show the condition of the battery. If it is flashing, see the following section on “ Testing the
battery.” The normal state of this light is on, but dim.
If the red LED is flashing it means that the system may have reached low voltage lockout; the unit does not have
enough voltage to operate the system. One of the following problems may exist:
• Broken or spliced wires from the transformer or solar panel to the control board.
• A transformer or solar panel that has no output voltage.
• Incorrect number of solar panels, or solar panels not properly hooked up.
The green light serves as a quick visual indication that the control board is receiving power from the
transformer.
29
The transformer: Two things can cause failure: the first is shorting the leads during the installation, or letting
the strands touch at the terminal on the control board. The second is a static charge (generally associated with
a lightning storm or power outage); use of a surge protector will help.
Testing the battery: This is a 12 volt 7 Ah battery. The proper way to test this is to perform a load test. Place
the voltmeter on D.C.; put the red probe on the (+) positive terminal and place the black probe on (-) negative
terminal. Then activate the unit and watch the voltmeter. The drop should not be more than 1 volt.
Note: A loose battery terminal will cause the same symptoms that a bad battery will cause. Terminals should be
secure and corrosion free.
Remote control range: This will vary at each installation. (see FCC disclaimer on page 23), but generally varies
from 50 ft. to 100 ft.
• Make sure that the receiver is located above metal fences.
• Moving the receiver even a few inches can change the range of operation.
• Move the receiver as far from the motor as possible to avoid the chance of electrical interference.
• Check or change the battery in the transmitter.
