Quick Start
SlideDriver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO, 50VF3
These instructions are provided as a quick reference guide for the experienced installer who is already familiar with all safety
precautions and the installation of this gate operator.
CAUTION: Use this QuickStart as a guide and read and follow the information and instructions found in
the other sections of this manual. DO NOT attempt to connect this operator to any voltage other than that
listed on the nameplate. Be certain the labeled voltage and phase of the operator matches the available
supply. For assistance, contact HySecurity Technical Support at 800-321-9947.
Refer to the Technical Drawings on pages 14 - 17 when proceeding through the following steps:
1.
Mount the operator with at least four mounting bolts. The operator must be square and spaced 1¾ inches (44mm) away
from the gate.
2.
Attach the drive rail to every vertical member of the gate at a height 9¼ inches (24cm) above the base of the operator.
Use ¼ (6mm) roll pins to splice multiple sections of rail.
3.
Mount the limit switch stop ramps.
Mount the two smaller, 11.5 (29cm) limit switch stop ramps to the underside of the drive rail at each end (flat side up,
tapered end toward the wheel) in the drive rail slot closest to the operator. Drill ⅜ (9mm) holes in a position that will
allow the limit switches to be tripped 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20cm) before full travel.
Mount the two long limit switch deceleration ramps in the outside channel of the drive rail, closest to the gate. Square
ends should be even with the back (square) ends of the limit switch trip ramps.
On the 50VF2-EFO and 50VF3 (X3) units, mount the 10.5 long (27cm) extension ramps (opposite tapers on each
end) in the outside channel (closest to the gate) flush to the tapered ends of the long ramps.
4.
Connect the electrical power wires to the loose wires from the ON/OFF switch at the left corner of the control box and
attach the grounding wire to the green grounding wire. Be certain the labeled voltage and phase of the operator matches
the available supply.
5.
Operators are shipped hydraulically configured for ―right hand‖ operation. (From the secure side, the gate moves to right
on opening). To change the handing, reconnect the hydraulic hoses at the pump in reverse order. There is a label near
the hose quick disconnect fittings describing this procedure. Connecting the hose from the top motor to the left disconnect
fitting results in ―left hand‖ operation.
6.
With neither limit switch tripped, engage the release mechanism to clamp the wheels to the drive rail and verify that the
red spring is compressed to 2 inches (5cm) in height.
7.
Turn ON the power switch. The UL usage class [] appears on the Smart Touch Controller display after a two-second
delay. The setting for the usage class must be selected before the gate can function. Press the SELECT button, then the
NEXT button and select a usage class of 3 through 4 as appropriate for the site. Press the SELECT button again to lock
the setting.
8.
Press the NEXT button to move to the next menu item and set the gate handing. The characters [] appear on the
display. Replace the 0 with [] or [] to set the gate handing by following the same button presses described in
step 7.
9.
Press the PROGRAM button and the close timer setting [] appears. If a close timer function is needed, set it in the
same manner as above.
10. When you are finished programming the Smart Touch Controller, press the PROGRAM button again to exit to Run Mode.
One, of a possible three, operator status displays may appear: ,  or . ( or  appears if a limit switch
is tripped.)
11. Test the operation of the gate. If the hoses are connected incorrectly, the gate will move the wrong direction. (See step 5.)
If the gate moves in the correct direction, but triggers an  alert, the handing is set wrong. (See step 8.)
12. After normal operation has been verified, connect any required accessory device wiring. Note that the control inputs
(except Fire Department Open and Emergency Close) are all one wire only to the main terminal strip while the other wire
connects to the Common Bus (COM) on the nearby power supply board.
13. To access the User Menu, press the PROGRAM button while there is no active Open or Close input. The operator status
displays scroll past and stop at the [] close timer menu item. This is the beginning of the User Menu which contains
12 menu items. Access to the 34 items in the Installer Menu is also available from the close timer display [] by
simultaneously pressing the RESET and OPEN buttons. The usage class [] which is the first of menu item in the
Installer Menu appears. Read the instructions found in this manual before attempting any adjustments!

Features
High Speed, Very Heavy: SlideDriver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO, and 50VF3
UL class III & IV.
These operators are designed for very heavy, up to 5,000 lbs gates moving at high and very high speeds.
The variable frequency drive moves very heavy gates at the following speeds:
26 inches per second, 50VF2
26 inches per second, 50VF2 – EFO (36in/s Emergency Fast Operate to close on a constant HOLD command.)
36 inches per second, 50VF3
SlideDriver VF models close gates to a very precise point and are extremely easy on gate hardware. SlideDriver
VF operators use a variable frequency drive, larger wheels and a higher flow rate pump to reach 2 to 3 inches
per second. These operators use the same powerful HySecurity Smart Touch controller and simple and reliable
hydraulics of all SlideDriver models.
The Smart Touch Controller
This is the brain of HySecurity operators. Groundbreaking technology combined with sturdy construction to
reliably serve in the harshest environments. The Smart Touch Controller can quickly be configured by an
installer or user to adapt to nearly any site specific functional requirement. All system settings are performed
with the use of four programming buttons and an LCD display. The Smart Touch Controller has no switches to
set. An RS232 port for external communication is standard. An EEPROM records date stamped system events.
A log of events can be downloaded from the RS232 port to a laptop computer to evaluate abnormal gate system
operation. HySecurity HY-5A vehicle detectors set a new industry standard by communicating valuable
performance data to the Smart Touch controller, allowing quick and deep, user-friendly diagnostics.
SlideDriver C, Correctional Facility (-C)
The CF models offer an extra heavy 10-gauge cover with three different locking options. Correctional
Facility operators are shipped ready to interface to the many options and interlocks commonly used at
correctional facilities, such as gate position outputs, interlock capability for sally ports and an interface
relay to control an external solenoid lock.
SlideDriver M, Modular (-M)
This family of operators is a two part modular version of the standard SlideDriver operator. The motor,
hydraulic pump and electric controls are located in a separate enclosure, often at a distance from the
drive unit. This version allows for a more flexible placement of the operator, which may be required or
desirable in some situations involving unique mounting, special security (including blast mitigation) or
those areas requiring a very quiet operator.
Stopping the Gate
All models employ a time delay soft stop system. Additionally, brake valves are used to control the
stopping of heavy or fast moving gates. These valves are exclusive to HySecurity operators. They are
independently adjustable to allow the gate to stop predictably and without banging.
Starting the Gate
The variable speed drive provides a soft start which accommodates for the load and starts the gate
smoothly, similar to letting your foot slowly off a car clutch without any lurching.
WARNING: DO NOT attempt to connect to 110/120V power. The variable frequency (VF) drive
SlideDriver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO, and 50VF3 operators can only be connected to 208V, 230V single- and
three-phase power supplies or 460V three-phase power supplies. Refer to the Wire Chart on page 59 for
proper wire sizing and the distances they accommodate. See further WARNINGS on page 59.

Section 1 — READ FIRST! — Important Safety Information
Important Safety Information – Review before Installation
Automatic gate operators provide user convenience and security. However, because these machines can
produce high levels of force, it is important that all automated gate system designers, installers and end users
be aware of the potential hazards associated with improperly designed, installed or maintained systems. Keep
in mind that the gate operator is only one component of the automated gate system. It is the joint responsibility
of the specifier, designer, purchaser, installer and end user to verify that the system is appropriately
configured for its intended use. All parties should be informed that entrapment in a moving gate can cause
serious injury or death.

Important Instructions for Gate System Designers & Installers:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all instructions
found in the gate operator manual and on the warning labels.
Install an Automatic Gate Operator only when:

The entry is configured for vehicular use only. Pedestrians must be directed to a
separate walk-through entrance. The WARNING signs that have been supplied with
this operator must be installed in a manner clearly visible on both sides of the gate.

All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened, from the bottom of
the gate to a minimum of 4 feet (1.2m) height above the ground, to prevent a sphere
2¼ inches (57mm) in diameter from passing through an opening anywhere in the
gate or the portion of the adjacent fence that is covered in the open position.

All exposed pinch points, rollers and wheels are guarded. To reduce the risk
of entrapment, the gate must also be installed so that enough clearance is provided
between the gate and adjacent structures both when opening and closing. Minimize
the parallel gap between the gate and the fence.

Section 1 — READ FIRST! — Important Safety Information
Site, Gate, Equipment and Regulatory Requirements

The gate moves freely in both directions. Never over-tighten a clutch or pressure relief valve to
compensate for a stiff gate.

The operator will be installed on the secured (non-public) side of the gate.

The operator will be properly electrically grounded and the intended supply voltage matches the
voltage label on the operator.

The gate operation controls have been mounted far enough away from the moving gate such
that users cannot touch the gate while operating the controls. All easily accessible controls must
have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.

The operator controls will be located in line-of-sight to the gate. Radio controls and other remote
access controls must be connected only to the Remote Open input.

Required external entrapment sensors will be installed. Be certain to carefully review the
instructions for placement, installation and adjustment of these external entrapment sensors.
External entrapment sensors must function to reverse the movement of the gate in both
opening and closing directions. If edge (contact) sensors are used, they are to be mounted
on the leading and trailing edges of the gate, as well as post mounted on the inside and outside
of the gate (See illustration on page 4). If photo eyes or other non-contact sensors are used,
they are to be mounted in locations most likely to guard against entrapment. A combination of
contact and non-contact sensors may be used, but all must be recognized components under
the UL 325 standard. See page 33 for details on the requirements.

If entrapment protection is provided by a continuous pressure actuation control, a placard
stating ―WARNING‖ – ―Moving Gate has the Potential of Inflicting Injury or Death - Do Not Start
Gate Unless Path is Clear‖ must be posted. Additionally, no other activation device shall be
connected and no automatic closing device, of any kind, shall be used.

The automatic operator is labeled as appropriate for both the type and UL usage class of the
gate.
NOTE: SlideDriver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO and 50VF3 sliding gate operators must be installed only
for Class III & IV applications.
Class I: Intended to serve single to four family residential uses
Class II: Multi-family use, or any application intended to serve the general public
Class III: Commercial applications not intended to serve the general public
Class IV: Highest security. Security personnel prevent unauthorized access

Sliding gate operators installed in Class III & IV applications do not have a speed restriction
and the secondary entrapment sensor requirement is met if the system is configured as
described for Class I & II use, or by the following alternative means, such as:
Employing the use of a 100dB buzzer which sounds at least 3 seconds before
the gate moves.
Employing the use of a constant hold-type push button control.

Section 1 — READ FIRST! — Important Safety Information
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all
instructions found in this manual and on warning labels.
Save These Important Owner and User Instructions:
(Installers – be certain to instruct the owners and users about the following
items.)

Automatic gates are for vehicular use only! Provide walkways and
signs to direct pedestrians to a separate walk-through entrance.
Because an automatic gate can start at any time without warning,
always keep people away from the gate area. The Warning signs that
have been supplied with this operator must remain installed, in
manner clearly visible on both sides of the gate.

Never allow children to use or play with the controls that operate the
gate. Keep all remote controls away from children, especially radio
transmitters.

Teach all users how to turn off the electric power source and how to
release and move the gate manually. Use the manual release only when the gate is not
moving.

Test gate operator functionality monthly. The gate MUST reverse direction of travel upon
contact with a rigid object, and/or stop upon a sensing a second sequential activation prior to
reaching a full travel limit. Also test for the normal function of any non-contact sensors. If the
gate system employs the use of a transmitting edge sensor, be especially certain to routinely
test and replace its battery.

KEEP AUTOMATIC GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Have a professional gate installer
perform routine entrapment protection sensor tests. This includes photo eyes and gate edges.
Repair gate hardware when encountered to keep the gate running smoothly. Failure, to make
timely repairs or adjust and test a gate operator properly, can increase the risk of injury or
death.

In addition to appropriately placed external entrapment sensors, ask your installer to reduce
the pressure relief valve setting to the lowest setting allowable that reliably operates the gate.
This valve controls the force of the operator, and the sensitivity of the inherent reversing
sensor.

Do not attempt to disable or muffle the Warn Before Operate buzzer, except in Class IV
restricted access locations. This buzzer provides an alert that the gate is about to
move.

Section 2 — Getting Started
How this hydraulic operator works
HySecurity industrial slide gate operators rotate
polyurethane treaded drive wheels which grip a rigid metal
drive rail and feed it right or left during the gate travel. The
drive wheels are clamped above and below the drive rail
and are directly coupled to powerful hydraulic motors,
which easily move large gates. This simple yet durable
drive system is one of the unique features giving our
hydraulic operators their reputation for reliability.
Pedestrian Entrapment Protection
Before installing the gate operator, read and understand all the important information in Section 1. Be
absolutely certain that the required type and quantity of entrapment protection devices have been supplied
and that you understand how to install them correctly. Contact your local distributor with questions about
entrapment protection.

Section 2 — Installation Preparation Checklist
Figure A
1. Read all instructions, especially the Important
Information in Section 1 at the beginning of this
manual, before you install the operator. This
section is focused on mechanical installation.
For electrical setup and use of the Smart Touch
Controller, refer to Section 3.
Gate distance

2. Make sure the concrete pad is the
recommended size and ready for operator
attachment. Also, check that electrical conduits
are correctly located and in proper alignment
with the chassis. HySecurity recommends that
the concrete pad reaches below the local frost
line and extends somewhat above grade. See
the footprint plan and elevation view on pages
14 and 15.

3. Make sure the gate rolls smoothly in both directions
without any gate hardware binding. If the gate is warped
or hard to move, stop and fix the gate before attempting
to automate it.
4. Verify that you have covers for all exposed gate support wheels.
These must be installed. Also, look around to identify all potential
pinch points and hazardous areas and plan the best location for
entrapment protection devices and warning signs. Remember you
are required to advise the owner regarding potential hazards and
to discuss the use of the entrapment protection sensors that you
have selected and installed.

5. There are three steps to a perfect install: location, location, location.
One of the most critical installation aspects is to make sure the operator is positioned the proper distance
from the gate and the gate and operator are as parallel as possible. See Figure C below. Prepare shims to
align the drive rail.

Section 2 — Installation
1. Drill four holes for concrete anchors
slab
When you have removed the operator from its shipping container, cut out the
template found on the box. Use it to trace the outside edges and anchor slots.
Place the template on the concrete pad; making sure that it is parallel to and
1¾-inches from the gate. Trace the slots, remove the template, and then scribe
the locations for anchor bolts. Drill holes for the anchor bolts in the center of the
slots you marked so that you will have some room for adjustments. Install at
least four ½-inch x 4-inch concrete anchor bolts (two bolts per side).
2. Line up the operator
Put the operator in position onto the anchor bolts. Verify that the
operator is parallel (within ⅛-inch) and measure the distance between
the operator and the gate. It should be 1¾-inch away from the gate on
both the left and right sides. Refer to Figure A on page 9. Tighten the
anchors securely.
3. Bolt the Drive Rail to the Gate Panel
Connect multiple sections of drive rail together with ¼-inch roll pins for a
perfect splice. The drive rail must be bolted to each vertical member of the
gate panel. This may be done with U-bolt clamps or through bolts.
However, U-bolt clamps allow for easy up/down adjustment. If the gate is
bent or warped, shim the drive rail so that it is straight + ¼-inch throughout
the travel of the gate. When the drive rail has been installed at the correct
height, the top surface is 9¼-inches above the operator base. A label and
notch on each side of the operator indicates the correct height. See
Figure B on page 9.

Once the gate rail is straight, verify the alignment of the wheels to the rail. Place a straightedge (≥24-inch)
across the face of the upper wheel, through the rail slot in the face of the operator. The straightedge should be
in line with the rail and touching the aluminum rim of the wheel on across the face. The straightedge and rail
should be parallel within ⅛-inch over 24-inch. If not, loosen the chassis mounting bolts and rotate the chassis
until the straightedge and rail are parallel then retighten the chassis bolts.

Section 2 — Installation
4. Install Limit Ramps on Underside of Drive Rail
Drive rail
SlideDriver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO, and 50VF3 operators have
two sets of limit ramps. The ramps mounted farthest from the
operator and closest to the gate are deceleration ramps
(these are the longest ramps). The ramps mounted closest to
the operator, farthest from the gate are stop ramps.
Push the gate to the fully closed position and drill two
⅜-inch holes through the drive rail to mount a 12-inch
plastic limit ramp under the drive rail, in the wheel channel.
Locate drive rail so that it will trip the limit switch
approximately. 2-inches before the exact spot you want the
gate to stop.
Limit ramp
Limit Roller
Limit switch
Adjust the ramp left or right to achieve exact stopping point.
Fully secure by tightening both bolts.
Adjust the lever arms on the limit switch so that the roller
clears the underside of the drive rail by at least ¼-inch.
Push the gate fully open and repeat this procedure with the
other limit ramp.
Install the deceleration ramps in the outside (farthest from
the operator) channel of the drive rail, with the flat end
parallel to the flat end of the stop ramp.
NOTE: The 50VF2 has 1 deceleration ramp, approximately
29 inches long. The 50VF2-EFO and 50VF3 have one
additional ramp, approximately 11 inches long making the
total deceleration ramp 40 inches long. See pages 16 and 17
for expanded limit ramp views.
5. Clamp the Drive Wheels to the Drive Rail
When the wheels are fully clamped on the drive rail, the
red spring should be compressed to 2-inch in height. If
adjustment is necessary, turn the nut at the bottom of the
threaded rod assembly. Slightly less compression is okay
for lighter gates. See Section 8 — Use and Adjustment of
the Manual Release Mechanism on page 57.

Section 2 — Installation
6. Electrical Power Connection
CAUTION:
Variable frequency (VF) operators:
Make sure the connecting wires match the voltage
found on the operator’s nameplate. NEVER connect to
the white – 120V wire.
This operator is intended for permanent installation.
All electrical conduits must be properly connected to
the control box. The entry for the primary power is a
½ - ¾-inch knockout on the left side of the control box
next to the power switch. The operator is built to run
on a specific voltage and phase. Make sure you have
compared the available line voltage and phase with
the voltage and phase listed on the nameplate on the
machine. They must match! Be certain that the
branch circuit wire size versus the distance of the run
from the main panel is large enough to avoid excess
voltage drop. At a minimum, a 20A circuit (protected
with a 20A Inverse Time Breaker) should be provided.
Also be sure the operator is electrically grounded per
NEC Article 250 and local codes. See page 58 for
correct wire sizes and detailed electrical wiring
information.
7. Primary Tap of Control Transformer
Check to make sure that the primary tap on the control
transformer matches the line voltage you have
connected to the operator. Measure the line voltage
carefully to distinguish between 208V and 230V
branch circuits or between 390V and 460V branch
circuits. A label on top of the transformer identifies the
various voltage taps. This connection must match the
voltage on the operator nameplate.
Reset switch

8. Check the operator ―Hand‖
All slide operators must have their ―handing‖ set
before they can function. The ―handing‖ must be
set both by the proper hydraulic hose connection
and by programming the Smart Touch Controller.
The proper handing hose connection is described
on a label near the hose connection point. Also,
see the instructions to set handing on page 19.
Operators are shipped configured for right hand
operation. Handing is viewed by standing on the
secure side looking out. A gate which opens to the
right is a right-handed gate.
―Right Hand‖ shown
Remove red plastic
shipping plug and
replace with black
breather cap.
9. Replace the Shipping Plug!
Replace the ½″ steel or red plastic shipping plug
on the front side of the pump with the black
breather cap.
10. Setup the Smart Touch Controller
To change handing
connect hoses
according to label on
tank.
The operator controls will not allow the gate to function
until the Smart Touch Controller has been configured.
Wait to connect external controls until you have
reviewed Smart Touch Controller instructions and tested
operator basic functions.
NOTE: HySecurity has an installation CD available free
of charge to installers. Call a HySecurity distributor for
your copy.

Section 2 — Mechanical and Hydraulic Adjustments
1. Drive Wheel Spring Tension
When the drive wheels are fully clamped on the rail, the red spring should be compressed to 2-inch in height. Turn the nut
at the bottom of the threaded rod assembly to adjust the spring’s tension. Slightly less compression is okay for lighter
gates. (See illustration on page 11.)
2. Drive Rail
Verify that the drive rail does not move more than 1-inch up and down or ¼-inch side-to-side throughout the
entire horizontal travel of the gate. Re-alignment is simple if the rail is mounted with U bolts. Adjusting the rail
for side-to-side movements requires inserting shims between the rail and the gate where necessary. To adjust
side-to-side movements, loosen the U bolts and add or remove shim stock. To adjust up or down, loosen the U
bolts and simply tap the rail with a hammer until the correct height is reached.
3. Brake Valves
This operator is equipped with brake valves, their proper adjustment is
important for smooth operation of the gate. In order for the brake
valves to have time to function, the limit ramp must trigger the
limit switch at least two inches before the point at when you want
the gate to stop. Adjustment of the brake valves, one for each
direction of travel, will determine how quickly the gate actually stops. If
adjustment is needed, loosen the 9/16-inch lock nut on the top of the
brake valve and make ¼-inch incremental turns on the adjustment stem
with an Allen wrench. The adjustment is counter-intuitive, such that a
counter-clockwise adjustment stops the gate more rapidly. If the
adjustment is set too loose, the limit ramps will bang into the drive
wheels. If the adjustment is set too tight, the system pressure will
increase, the gate speed may decrease and the gate will jerk to a stop.
Brake valves are factory-set to midpoint, two turns. This should be
sufficient for most applications. If the switch stops more than two inches
into the limit ramp, increase braking. When the adjustment is complete,
retighten the locking nut to hold the setting.
4. Pressure Relief Valve
This valve governs the maximum system hydraulic pressure. It is located
on the backside of the pump. The pressure relief valve is factory set and
may need to be adjusted depending on the gate weight. Refer to the
yellow tag wire tied to the unit, and follow the instructions.
Optional brake valves CCW = quicker stop
Left valve controls open
Right valve controls close

NOTE: The only way to display the actual relief valve setting is to unplug
the hydraulic hoses from the quick disconnect fittings and run the
operator. View the setting on the pressure gauge. Retighten the locking
nut to hold the desired setting and reconnect the hoses correctly.
5. Open Valve
The open valve is solenoid operated and, when energized, directs the
hydraulic flow to open the gate. No adjustment of this valve is possible
or necessary. The black solenoid coil mounts on its valve stem.

Section 3 — Setting Operator Usage Class and Handing
NOTE: Make sure the hydraulic hoses are connected
properly to the quick disconnect fittings on the manifold. A
label near the connection point describes this procedure. If
the hoses are connected incorrectly, the gate will run
backwards (close when the OPEN button is pressed) and
this may trigger an error [] on the display. If this occurs,
the hoses need to be reconnected properly and the RESET
button must be pressed to reset the operator).
To change handing
connect hoses
according to the
label on the pump
pack.
1. Turn the power switch ON. The operator status displays scroll past. The
display directly enters the Installer Menu and the usage class [] menu
item appears.
NOTE: If the operator has been configured, the Installer Menu must be
accessed in order to reach the system configuration menu items. See steps
3c and 3d on page 18.
2. While the usage class [ is being displayed), set the user class as
defined by UL. Press SELECT, and then press NEXT to choose
between [] or []. See page 33 for UL usage class definitions.
Refer to page 18 for a reminder on how to use the Menu Mode buttons.
3. When the appropriate usage class is displayed, press SELECT to accept
it. The characters on the display stop blinking.
NOTE: The Installer Menu cannot be exited and the operator will not
function until the selection for usage class and gate handing have been
entered.
4. To set the gate ―hand,‖ press the NEXT button. The handing menu item
appears []. Press SELECT, and then press NEXT to choose
between ― ‖ for right hand or ― ‖ for a left-hand gate opening.
5. When the appropriate handing is displayed, press SELECT to accept it.

the User Menu, Either set the Close Timer by the same programming
sequence described on the previous page or press the PROGRAM
button again to exit to Run Mode.
7. Test for proper handing by observing which way the wheels rotate. With
the wheels unclamped, cycle the gate open and close. Use the OPEN
and CLOSE buttons on the keypad. Note wheel rotation to verify proper
gate handing. If the wheels are rotating opposite from the direction you wish the gate to move, return to the gate
handing display and correct gate handing.
NOTE: Since the wheels are unclamped, neither limit switch should trigger at the start of this test. After ten seconds,
the  alert may appear because the system did not sense gate motion. This is a ―normal‖ alert and can be reset
when you complete the test.
8. Re-clamp the wheels and, if necessary, press RESET to clear the alert status.

Install a Push-Button Device
The Emergency Fast Operate (3ft/s emergency close option) is designed for a
constant hold function, such as a push-button device that is held for the
duration of gate travel. To operate properly, the device must be connected to Terminal 23 on the Smart Touch Controller
and a +24VDC terminal in the control box. See the illustration on the next page.
When the connections are made, a constant hold signal transmitted to the Smart Touch Controller causes the Emergency
Fast Operate function to close the gate at 3ft/s.
Test the Operator
Complete the installation by testing the operation of the gate.
1. Make sure the operator is turned ON.
2. Close the control box lid.
3. Press OPEN to open the gate. The gate should open at 2ft/s.
4. Access gate operation. Observe the travel speed of the gate when you press the EMERGENCY CLOSE (on the
constant hold device).
5. If the gate closes at 3ft/s, the operator is working properly. If additional accessories are to be added, read about
Wiring Control Inputs on the next page.

Section 3 — Connecting a Master / Slave Pair
Configuring two operators to be a Master and Slave pair is easy with the Smart Touch Controller. There is no need to
order a special model or any adapters. The area of the board marked Dual Gate employs a 3-wire RS485 serial port for
communication between Master and Slave operators.
NOTE: Master and Slave operators must have the same version of the Smart Touch Controller and the same software
version loaded on both machines.
1. An electrical conduit for the interconnecting wires must span between the two operators. This conduit must
contain only low voltage ≤ 24V control and signal wiring.
2. Complete the installation of both of the operators as separate machines and verify that their basic functions are
correct as solo operators before interconnecting them.
3. The two gate operators should be supplied by home runs from separate 20A circuit breakers in the main panel,
but if there is only one circuit, be absolutely certain that the breaker and wire size is sufficient for the load of two
motors. See the Appendix pages 59 and 59.
4. External control inputs, vehicle detectors and entrapment protection sensors may be connected to either gate
operator without regard to preference.
5. To interconnect the two operators, route a shielded twisted triple cable between the electric control boxes and
connect to the RS485 Dual Gate terminals, in matching order on both machines. In the RS485 shaded area,
connect the terminals for Master Com to Slave Com as shown in the table below:
Slave
Master
A
A
COM
COM
B
B
Shield wire to Ground*
*NOTE: Only ground to one operator. Do NOT attach the
shield wire to both operators. Cut off the shield and insulate
(tape up) the exposed strands at the other operator.
6. The Installer Menu in each operator must be set as a Master or a Slave under menu item []. Set one operator
as a Slave [] and the other as a Master []. If the function of any external input is to be different than the
factory default, configure for the desired function on the operator where that input is connected. Internal functions,
such as the close timer or reversal distance, are controlled by the Master operator regardless of the settings in the
Slave.
7. Once set as a Master or a Slave, the operators are in constant communication with each other. If that
communication stops because the wires become severed or one operator is turned off, both machines will cease
functioning and the  appears on the display (a Master/Slave communication error). This error cannot be reset
until both machines are functional and communicating properly again.

Section 3 —User Menu Functions
The User Menu functions shown in the chart on previous page are described in more detail on this page.
User 1 [Ct _] Close timer setting: Assign how many seconds before the open gate initiates closure. Keep the setting
at 0 if a hard-wired, push-button control device is being used.
NOTE: The CLOSE TIMER display does not appear when the HOLD TO CLOSE is set to 1.
User 2 [hC 0] Momentary Close: Set to 0 produces a gate closure when a momentary signal is transmitted.
Set to 1 if a constant hold to close signal, such as a push-button control, is being used. A setting of 1 also deactivates the
automatic close timer and causes its menu to disappear. You must set HC to 1 to comply with UL 325 Type D protection.*
User 3 [ho 0] Momentary Open: Similar to HOLD TO CLOSE, but configures the OPEN push button for a constanthold function. 0 = Momentary open signal. A setting of 1 means a constant hold open push button is required. You must
set HO to 1 to comply with UL 325 Type D protection.*
User 4 [AP 0] Power loss function: This menu item only appears if the operator is a DC battery-powered (UPS)
version. Configures the gate function that will occur if AC power fails.
User 5 [ro 0] Radio control option: Configures radio input for open only (0) or at setting 1 adds the capability for
radio input to close the gate when it is fully open.
User 6 [bF 2] Warn before operate: Controls the warn-before-operate buzzer and can be configured three ways:
Set to 1: Buzzer beeps for 3 seconds before gate motion begins and continues through entire gate travel.
Set to 2: Buzzer beeps for 3 seconds before gate motion begins and continues for 2 seconds of gate travel.
Set to 0: Buzzer is disabled. Set at 0 the buzzer will still beep when alerts, faults, errors, or entrapment are detected.
WARNING: Do NOT cut the wires to the buzzer or unplug it as the operator will not be in compliance with UL 325.
Failure to comply may result in serious injury or death.
User 7 [FA 0] Forced open Alert and automatic gate reposition: Intended for highly secure facilities. Set to 1, the
operator sounds the 3-second ―warn before operate‖ buzzer alarm, and then initiates a closure if the gate is forced open
and the closed limit switch disengages. The motor restarts to secure the gate. If the gate does not fully close within 4
seconds, the motor turns off and the alert buzzer sounds for 30 seconds. The display shows .
User 8 [dA 0] Drift Closed Alert and automatic gate reposition: Set to 1, the operator sounds the 3-second ―warn
before operate‖ buzzer alarm and initiates an open command if the gate is forced, or drifts, off the open limit switch. The
motor starts to reopen the gate. The motor runs for a maximum of 4 seconds and, if the gate is not fully open at the end of
this period, the buzzer sounds for 10 seconds. The display shows .
User 9 [PE 0] PE Alignment Mode: When set to 1, the operator serves as an aide in photo-eye transmitter/receiver
alignment. The buzzer chirps once when the emitter and receiver are not aligned. When the emitter and receiver are
aligned, the buzzer chirps twice. If they go out of alignment again, the buzzer will chirp once. The Alignment Mode is reset
with a close-limit input or reset input.
User 10 [CL 0] Clock and date set: The Smart Touch Controller is equipped with a 24 hour 365 day clock; thus events
of significance are logged and stamped with the time and date. This feature is useful to read historical operation data,
which can be accessed with a computer via the USB or RS232 port. To set or adjust the hour, minute, day or month, see
page 31.
User 11 [Ld 5] LCD Contrast set: Under some extreme high or low temperature conditions, it may be necessary to
adjust the contrast of the LCD display. The display is adjustable from 0-9 with a factory default setting of 5.
User 12 [dD 0] Extended Data Log: Set this item to 1 to record all gate operator open and close events, in addition to
the normal alert, fault and error logs. This parameter automatically resets to the default 0 (off) after 24 hours, which is
useful when experiencing intermittent problems. Set to 0, the Smart Touch Controller logs pertinent gate operator events
such as faults, errors, or menu manipulation.
*NOTE: For gate operators using Type D entrapment protection, an automatic closing device (such as a timer, loop
sensor, or similar device) shall not be employed.

Section 3 —Correctional Facility – User Optional Wiring
A special terminal strip has been pre-wired to the three user relay outputs in Correctional Facility (CF) models for easy
field wiring of the common interconnect options. If alternate output functions are required, see page 30.
NOTE: User 3 Relay on STC boards is rated for DC only up to 48V and does not have an N.C. (normally closed)
connection.
Connecting an Interlocked Pair:
An interlocked pair of operators is not a Master/Slave system. It is two gate operators interlocked such that the one cannot
open unless the other is fully closed. This connection is used frequently at correctional facilities for Sally Port gates. The
Smart Touch Controller provides both the required interlock input (#7) and the interlock output contact.
1. User relay 3 on the Smart Touch Board has been set by the factory to provide the necessary interlock function.
Connect a total of four wires between operator #1 and operator #2 as follows: One wire to the Common bus of
each operator to the User 3 relay COM terminal of the other operator. Then, connect wires from the User 3 relay
NO terminal to the Interlock input (#7) of the other operator.
2. If User relay 3 has already been used for a different function, then one of the other relays User 1 or User 2 must
be wired as described above and set to output function 1. The user relays are configured in the Installer Menu as
item [r1__], [r2__] or [r3__] according to the definitions described on page 30.
3. The interlock input, terminal #7, is convertible to alternately be a time clock input, so it is possible that it may need
to be switched back for the interlock function. If this alteration is needed, go to the Installer Menu, and set item
[tC _] to be [tC_1].
Connecting to an External Lock Mechanism:
The Smart Touch Controller can command an external solenoid lock or maglock to unlock just before gate motion begins.
1. User relay 2 has been set by the factory to provide the necessary output for a solenoid lock. Connect the voltage
matching the lock solenoid to User 2 COM and connect a solenoid coil to User 2 NO (connect a maglock coil to
User 2 NC). The un-switched solenoid or maglock wire connects directly to its supply voltage common conductor.
2. If User relay 2 has already been used for a different function, then one of the other relays User 1 or User 3 must
be wired as described above and set to output function 6. The user relays are configured in the Installer Menu as

Section 3 —Options for User Programmable Output Relays 1-3
The Smart Touch Controller is able to interface with many types of external devices through the use of three userprogrammable output relays. All of the output functions described below are accessible in the Installer Menu under the
selection [r1__], [r2__] and [r3__].
NOTE: The User Relays will operate normally to less than 18VDC.
Access the Installer Menu and program the output relays according to the following steps:
1. Select the relay you wish to use; either [r1__], [r2__] or [r3__].
2. Enter the appropriate function using the associated number listed in the table.
1. Close limit output: Creates an interlock signal to another operator’s interlock input, or simply to indicate that the gate
is secure. The relay is released when the fully-closed limit switch is tripped. The relay is energized when the fullyclosed limit is released.
em
2. Close limit pulse output: Used in a sequenced syst to command a second machine to close. Generates a brief
pulsed output that occurs when the close limit is triggered.
3. Open limit output: Indicates a fully-opened position. This output becomes active when an open-limit is triggered and
releases when the open-limit is released.
4. Open limit pulse output: Trips a sequenced barrier arm gate operator to open. Generates a brief pulsed-output
when the open-limit is triggered. An additional pulse is also generated with any new open command even when the
gate is already fully-opened.
5. Warn before/during operate output: Controls an external warning device. This output operates at the same time as
the internal warn before operate buzzer.
6. Gate Lock output: Controls external solenoid locks or magnetic locks. In both directions of travel, this output is
activated about 7/10ths of a second before the operator starts moving the gate and remains active while moving as
well as for a few seconds after stopping.
7. Gate forced open output: Activated if the gate is forced off the closed limit switch and operator is not able to restore
the gate to full close within four seconds. This alarm resets itself in 30 seconds.
8. Gate open too long output: Activates when the gate is open longer than a user-selected period of time. Adjustable
from 0 delay to 135 seconds delay in 15-second time increments.
9. Safety Mode Alert output: Activated when system is in the Safety Mode or the Entrapment Mode. Safety Mode
occurs upon an impact with an obstruction. Entrapment Mode means the gate is stopped and occurs if the internal
inherent sensor triggers while the system is in the Safety Mode.
10. Entrapment Mode Alert output: Activated only when system is in the Entrapment Mode.
11. Unauthorized Vehicle Entry output: Activated when a second vehicle enters from the outside without a valid input
from an access control device. This output releases when an access control input signals open or the gate reaches
the close limit position.
12. Outside Obstruction Vehicle Detector output: Interlocks an entry device to prevent pedestrian use. This output is
active whenever the OOLD is tripped.
13. Special output from ―OOLD‖ only when gate is closed: Annunciates a vehicle or indicates loitering. Adjustable
from 0 delay to 135 seconds delay in 15-second time intervals.
14. Gate nearing full travel output: Applies to operators with RPM sensors only. Activated when the gate is three feet
from full travel in both the open and close directions. This output is used to reduce the sensitivity of a proximity
sensor near the ends of gate travel.
15. Gate Failure output: Activated to report occurrence of a problem. Indicates the system in an Error Mode, Fault Mode
or Entrapment Mode. If active, the gate is disabled.
16. Motor Running output: Active when the motor is running and the gate is in motion.
17. AC Power Failure output: This relay is normally energized and drops with loss of AC power. This output is also
active on DC machines when the battery charger is off.
18. DC Power Failure output: Activated when the battery power is very low, but the output ceases when the battery is
dead. The relay is triggered when the battery is less than 20 Volts.

19. Flasher Relay: Controls flashing lights that pulse once per second. The relay is constantly activating except when
the open limit switch is triggered.
20. Free Exit Loop Vehicle Detector output: Available with software version h3.23 and higher. Active whenever the
ELD is tripped.
21. Inside Obstruction Vehicle Detector output (available in h3.23 and higher software): Activated when the Inside
Obstruction Vehicle Detector (IOLD) is tripped.
22. Reset/Shadow Loop Detector output: (Not used in SlideDriver.) Activated when the Reset or Shadow loop detector
(RLD/SLD) is tripped. Since this input it not used for a sliding gate, User Relay 22 can be used in combination with a
detector to perform the function of an arming-loop detector or annunciation-loop detector because there is no
associated gate control logic.
23. Gate Lock Output: Available with software version h3.25 or h4.23 and higher. Activates when the Lock Interlock
Input (Terminal No. 22) is active at the start of an Open cycle and remains on until the Lock Interlock releases or 10
seconds passes, whichever is sooner. Also, activates at the start of a Close cycle and releases 1 second after
reaching the Close limit..
24. Gate at Partial Open Position: Available with software version h3.25 and higher. Active when the partial open
position is reached or exceeded

Section 4 —Installing Gate Edge (Contact Type) Reversing Sensor
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all instructions in the gate operator
handbook and on the warning labels.
Automatic gate operators are intended for vehicular use and pedestrians must be routed to a separate main gate.
However, to provide a degree of protection should anyone happen to stray into the area of an automatic gate, sensors are
required. Generally two types of external sensors may be used:
Contact type sensors, such as an edge sensor
Non-contact sensors, such as photoelectric sensors
Current industry standards require the use of either type, or both, of these sensors as a secondary device in Class I and
Class II automatic sliding gate installations because the general public is likely to be present. Although alternative options
exist for Class III and IV installations, we highly recommend the use of external sensors for all automatic gate
applications.
The specifier or installer may choose either photoelectric sensors or edge sensors, or use these devices in combination,
but both the open and closing directions of gate travel must be guarded. The UL 325 standard for automatic sliding gates
specifically requires the following:
One or more non-contact sensors (photoelectric eyes) shall be located where the risk of entrapment or
obstruction exists, such as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate.
One or more contact sensors (edge sensors) shall be located at the leading edge, trailing edge and post mounted
both inside and outside of a sliding gate.
A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the
sensor and the gate is not subjected to mechanical damage.
A contact sensor that transmits its signal to the gate operator shall be located such that the signal is not impeded
by building structures or other obstructions and shall function under its intended end-use conditions.
The contact and non-contact sensors must be tested and labeled as ―Recognized Components‖ under the UL 325
standard in order to be deemed acceptable for use in this application.
Study the entrapment protection schematic and consider your specific installation to determine where the
greatest risks of entrapment exist. Locate edge sensors and/or the photoelectric sensors accordingly. Be certain
that a sufficient number of sensors are used so that both directions of gate travel are properly guarded.
34

Section 4 —Installing Gate Edge (Contact Type) Reversing Sensor, cont.
1. Follow the guidelines in the Entrapment Protection Device illustration to plan the most appropriate mounting positions
for the edge sensors to be installed. For sliding gates, one or more sensors shall be located at the leading edge,
trailing edge and post mounted both inside and outside of a sliding gate. A requirement of the UL 325 standard is that
an edge sensor be laboratory tested and ―recognized‖ under UL 325.
2. Drill holes through the edge’s mounting channel and through the surface that each gate edge is to be mounted.
Securely fasten every edge sensor. The edge sensors should all be placed not higher than 6‖ above the ground.
3. Edge sensors that are not attached to the moving gate, such as post mounted sensors are wired in parallel and
directly connected to the gate operator:
a. Mount a gate edge to the wall, pilaster or end post of the fence that aligns with the gate when it is in the open
position.
b. Always route the leads of the edge sensors to the gate operator so that they are protected from physical damage.
c. Connect one edge sensor lead to our Common Buss on the power supply board and the other to terminal #13,
which is labeled Edge Sensor input.
4. Edge sensors mounted to the leading edge or trailing edge of the gate panel should be used with an edge transmitter
and a receiver in order to transmit to the gate operator. We do not recommend the use of retractable cord reels or
curl cords because of durability problems with these devices in outdoor environments.
a. Mount gate edge sensors to the leading edge and trailing edge of the gate so that entrapment protection is
provided in both directions of travel.
b. Mount one or two edge transmitters (Linear Model #3022 or equivalent) onto the gate panel near the upper corner
of the leading edge of the gate. Both gate edges will function correctly if only one transmitter is used, but wiring
both edges to a single transmitter may be impractical or displeasing visually.
c.
Connect the edge(s) to the terminals in the edge transmitter and set the ―DIP‖ switches of the transmitter to match
the setting in the receiver to be used.
5. Mount a commercial style radio receiver* (external antenna type) on the inside of the operator, below the electrical
box. Knock out the smallest hole in the lower right corner of the electrical box and route the wires to the area marked
Radio Options. Only three wire connections are needed because the 24-Volt supply and the radio output share a wire.
Being certain to observe polarity, crimp the black radio power wire together with one of the radio output wires into a
.25‖ spade connector and connect to the COM terminal. Connect the red wire to the +24V terminal and connect the
other radio output contact wire to the spade marked EDGE. Note that this terminal is the same as the #13 input
terminal labeled Edge Sensor on the main control board.
a. Mount an external antenna onto the top of a fixed post of the fence near the operator.
b. Connect the antenna into the socket on the radio receiver.
c.
Set the ―DIP‖ switches in the receiver to match the same code used in the transmitter.
6. Test the operation of the reversing edge to make sure that it is functions correctly. Advise the user of the gate to be
certain to retest this vital function weekly.
* If there is also to be a radio receiver for a hand held transmitter to operate the gate, be certain to use a two channel
commercial receiver. The edge and hand held transmitters must have their codes set the same or they will not
function.

Section 4 —Installing Photoelectric (Non-contact) Sensors
General Information:
To plan the most appropriate mounting positions for the photoelectric sensors, review the Entrapment Protection Device
illustration on page 33. If secondary external entrapment protection sensors (typically an edge sensor) are NOT installed,
at least two photoelectric sensors are required. The purpose of the photoelectric sensors is to reverse the gate in each
direction of travel. The Smart Touch Controller has two photoelectric sensor inputs (Photo eye open and Photo eye close).
Two common types of photoelectric sensors exist:
Thru beam - A thru beam sensor is generally more powerful and able to function reliably with dirty optics and in
poor weather.
Retro-reflective - A retro-reflective sensor has the convenience of not requiring the installation and electrical
wiring of the remote emitter required in a thru beam system, but is generally more problematic in poor weather.
NOTE: Avoid use of a retro-reflective device to span a distance greater than 24 feet (7.3 meters) in an outdoor
environment because performance will probably be unsatisfactory.
Compatibility:
A requirement of the UL 325 standard is that a photoelectric sensor be laboratory tested and ―recognized‖ under UL 325.
In order to be compatible with a HySecurity operator, a photo eye must be rated to function from 24 Volts DC source
power.
Installation:
Mount the photo eyes approximately 15 to 30 feet (4.6 to 9 meters) above the ground and as close to the gate as
possible. A minimum of two photo eyes are required for both the opening and closing directions of travel unless gate
edges for entrapment protection exist.
NOTE: The installation locations described above are intended for pedestrian detection.
Mount the receivers on the left and right sides of the gate operator and the emitters just beyond the travel of the gate in
both the full open and full close positions of travel. In some situations, an additional photo eye should be installed on the
public side of the gate. If photo eyes are also being used for vehicular detection, consider, installing the low elevation
photo eye for cars and another photo eye at a height of about 55 inches (140cm) to detect semi-trucks.
Configuration:
If the photo eye has an internal switch for setting Light Operate vs. Dark Operate, select Light Operate. If the photo eye
has a relay output and has both NO and NC terminals, some experimentation may be required to determine the proper
connection. This is because, in the Light Operate mode, the output relay is normally energized and releases when the
beam is blocked. Some manufacturers label an output as NO, when it is actually an NC contact. If the photo eye has a
solid-state output you must choose a sinking type connection.
Connection:
Three wires to the receiver and two wires to the emitter are all that is required.
a. The +24 Volt source power is obtained at one of the three spade terminals on the power supply board.
b. The –24 Volt source power is obtained from spade terminals on our terminals #14 or #15, labeled (Photo Eye Power)
on the Smart Touch Controller board.
NOTE: The –24 Volt Photo Eye Power also supplies the photo eye output Common.
c.
The photo eye NO or NC output connects to the Smart Touch Controller board at terminal #19 if the photo eye spans
the road, or at terminal #17 if the photo eye spans the gate’s open storage area.
36
© 2010 Installation and Reference Manual D0125 Rev. F
Section 4 —Installing Photoelectric (non-contact) Sensors – continued
Supervised Connection
If the photo eye being installed has a true NC output (one that is NC when the photo eye is powered, aligned and set for
Light Operate), then a supervised connection is recommended. A supervised connection will signal a system Fault and
prevent gate operation if either the open or close photo eye connection ever becomes an open circuit or a short circuit.
The Installer Menu item [PC_0] must be changed to [PC_1] to enable this feature. See Installer 18 on page 27.
Photo Eye Function
If the gate is not in motion, a tripped photo eye will prevent the gate from starting in either direction. If tripped
while in motion, the gate pauses, and then automatically restarts again if the photo eye is cleared within five seconds. An
optional setting in the Installer Menu causes a two-second reversal of travel. See Installer Menu 14 & 15 starting on page
27.
Alignment
Most photo eyes require careful optical alignment in order to aim the emitter beam to the center of the receiver or
reflector. To avoid false triggering, it is important to carefully align the system, especially with retro-reflective photo eyes.
The best way to assure true centering of the beam is with some trial testing where the emitter is shifted to move the beam
left and right and up and down until the range of the invisible cone of the infrared beam is known. Photo eyes usually
provide alignment aid LED’s for this setup, but they can be hard to see. HySecurity has provided a unique feature that
turns power on to the photo eyes and causes our buzzer to chirp when the photo eye enters and exits alignment. See
User Menu item 9 on page 26 to enable this feature. Set the menu item [PE_0] to [PE_1] and the buzzer will chirp twice
when the beam is broken and once when remade. (The parameter will automatically reset the next time the Close Limit
Switch is triggered.)
Notes about Retro-Reflective Systems
Correct installation and alignment of a retro-reflective photo eye and its reflector is important for a trouble free installation.
Any system operating at a range greater than 16 feet is more prone to false triggering due to dirty optics, condensation or
poor weather. If care is taken in the initial mounting and alignment of the 3-inch reflector, the chance of problems is
greatly reduced.
Taking steps to protect the photo eye and the reflector from being exposed to fog and being absolutely certain the photo
eye is perfectly aligned will greatly reduce any false triggering of the system. The ideal mounting of a retro-reflective photo
eye is inside an enclosure.
The ideal mounting for the reflector is suspended inside a twelve inch long piece of 3-inch PVC conduit. Cut the opening
of the PVC conduit at a 45-degree angle to act as a drip shield. Hold the reflector against the backside of the PVC conduit
by attaching a 3-inch male connector. Do not cement the connector. This would prevent the reflector from being reached
for future cleaning. To create a mounting base, attach a 3-inch aluminum flange (electric meter hub) to the connector. This
whole package can be mounted to any flat surface.
Locate the reflector in the center of the invisible beam of infrared light to achieve the most sensitive alignment. The beam
center is determined by the following test: while holding the reflector in your hand, slowly raise it until the beam is no
longer returned and the photo eye trips. Mark this maximum height. Now lower your hand and determine the lower limit of
the infrared beam by watching for the trip point. Mark this position as well. Repeat the same procedure for left and right at
the center elevation of the beam, as determined by the previous test. Once the four limits have been determined, either
mount the reflector in the center of the area outlined or realign the eye for the position of the reflector. If the photo eye is
realigned, be sure to perform the centering test again to verify that the reflector is truly in the center.

Section 5 —Detector Loop Installation
Detector Basics
The vehicle detector passes a small current flow through the ―loop‖ which then becomes an inductive coil.
When a vehicle passes over a loop the detector senses the resultant drop in the inductance, and actuates the detector
output.
Loop Configurations
Configurations differ depending on the application. In parking applications with our StrongArm operator (HTG 320), a loop
may be as small as 4ft x 6ft (1.2m x 1.8m). In traffic applications employing one of our sliding gate operators, or swing
gate operators, the smallest loop should not be less than six feet square.
Rules to Follow for Security Gate Applications
NOTE: Refer to the drawing on page 40.
1. The side of the loop closest to the gate shall be located at least 4 feet (1.2 meters) distant from its line of travel.
2. The shortest side of the loop shall be between 6 and 8 feet (1.8 and 2.4 meters) in length. The longest side of the loop
shall be between 6 and twenty 20ft (1.8 and 6m) in length. For applications that need to span a wide area, use several
smaller loops. Do not exceed a maximum of 200ft² of loop area (61m²) to only one detector.
3. In applications with multiple loops, keep each loop at least 6ft (1.8m) apart. This avoids ―cross talk‖. It is possible to
have loops closer together by selecting different frequencies. An advantage of using HySecurity model HY-5A
detectors is that problematic ―cross talk‖ is not possible.
4. For greater sensitivity and less chance of false calls caused by the motion of the gate, it is better to use multiple
smaller loops, connected in a series circuit, to one detector instead of one large, single loop.
5. To avoid interference, keep loops at least 2 inches (5cm) above any reinforcing steel. Do not route loop wires with, or
in close proximity to, any other conductors, including other loop leads, unless shielded lead-in cable is used. Never
route high voltage circuits in PVC conduit near a loop.
6. Loop and lead-in wire should be one continuous piece. Avoid splices, if possible. If a splice is necessary for any
reason, ―pot‖ the splice in epoxy or use heat shrink to ensure that the quality of the splice covering is the same as the
original wire jacket.
7. Use only number 14, 16, or 18 gauge stranded wire with a direct burial jacket. Cross linked polyethylene insulation
types, such as, XLPE or XHHW, will last much longer and are less prone to damage during installation than
conventional insulation types. Preformed loops can be used before road surfacing or under pavers.
8. Twist loose tails of lead-in wires tightly, approximately 10 turns per foot (10 times per 30cm).
38
© 2010 Installation and Reference Manual D0125 Rev. F
Section 5 —Detector Loop Installation, continued
9. Follow this guide for the correct number of turns in the loop;
12 to 20 sq. ft = 5 turns (3.6 to 6 sq. meters)
20 to 60 sq. ft. = 4 turns (6 to 18 sq. meters)
60 to 240 sq. ft. = 3 turns (18 to 73 sq. meters)
10. This guide is written from a design perspective, but installation workmanship practices are equally important to insure
proper operation and long loop life. The best way to insure a quality installation is to employ a professional installer
experienced with detector loops. A few important practices are:
The slot in the surface should be cut ¼" wide x 1½" deep (6.3mm x 38mm).
The corners of the cut must be at an angle or core drilled to relieve stress on the wires.
After the wire is installed, the slot must be completely backfilled with a non-hardening sealer.
NOTE: If the loop wires are able to move in the slot after the sealer has set, the detector may give false calls.
Detector Logic
HySecurity recommends that vehicle detectors be used for free open and obstruction sensing logic only. The exception is
in parking applications with our StrongArm operator (HTG 320) where detectors may be also used to close the gate. In
applications employing our swing, vertical lift, or sliding gate operators, closing logic cannot be used. Because of their
slower speeds, closing logic is a poor choice for security gate systems. Since there are several ways that the gate may be
left standing open and because there is a loss of safety, our circuit has not been designed to accommodate ―detect to
close‖ logic.
Loop Diagnostics
The following tests cannot guarantee a functioning loop, but failure of either test means that the loop is definitely suspect,
even though it may still be functioning at the time.
Test #1:
Resistance of the loop and lead-in wire should not exceed 4.0 Ohms.
Test #2:
The resistance to earth, as measured with a 500V ―Megger‖, should be 100 Megohms or more. Loops may function at 10
Megohms or less but will not be reliable (e.g. when the ground is wet from rainfall). Low resistance indicates broken or
moisture saturated insulation. This is common if inappropriate wire insulation has been used.
See also Detector and Loop Fault Diagnostics on page 44 for additional tests that may be performed with HySecurity
HY-5A detector modules.

Section 5 —Vehicle Detector Installation Options
The Smart Touch Controller provides a feature rich interface to four different vehicle detector inputs. Standard box type
11 pin (24 Volt DC or 24 Volt AC) vehicle detectors may be connected in the traditional manner, see page 43. HySecurity
also offers a custom mini detector module that plugs directly into the Smart Touch control board. Not only is the field
installation much faster, but there is a large performance benefit. The HySecurity HY-5A detector is controlled by the
Smart Touch microprocessor to achieve many benefits over common box type detectors:
a. Loop frequency is automatically set and monitored by the Smart
Touch Controller
b. Cross talk between multiple loops is impossible
c. The best operating frequency for each loop is automatically chosen
d. Smart Touch can report the both loop frequency and call strength on
its LCD display
e. Smart Touch will report loop malfunctions and store this data in its
memory.
f. Most detector or loop faults that could occur are reported and
displayed on the LCD display
There are four vehicle detector inputs available both on the main terminal strip and as direct plug in modules. The vehicle
detector inputs are for the following functions:
1.
2.

Free Exit Loop Detector – ―ELD‖ for short
Outside Obstruction Loop Detector – ―OOLD‖ for short (this is the outside reversing loop)
Inside Obstruction Loop Detector – ―IOLD‖ for short (this is the inside reversing loop)
Shadow Loop Detector – ―SLD‖ for short (this is for swing gates only)
A combination of HY-5A detectors and box detectors is acceptable
It is not mandatory to use two separate detectors for inner and outer obstruction detection, however the benefits of
using this additional detector are great. Several new features are possible, such as second vehicle tailgating detection,
loitering alert, several anti-tailgating options and selectable non-reversing. Multiple obstruction detectors may be
mandatory because not more than 200ft² of loop area (61m²) may be connected to any one detector or the sensitivity
becomes inadequate.

Section 5 —HySecurity HY-5A Vehicle Detector Installation
1. Insert the locking end of each of two white plastic standoffs into the mounting holes on the detector.
2. Plug the detector into the appropriate socket along the right edge of the Smart Touch Controller board for the
detector function that is desired. Be careful to align the six detector pins into the socket correctly, and then snap
the standoffs into the holes on the right side of our control enclosure.
3. Route the loop wires through the wire guide provided and connect the loop leads to the two terminals directly on
the detector. Tighten the terminal screws securely.
4. When the power is turned on, the detectors will immediately tune themselves.
5. Once enabled, if the detector module is unplugged, a communications alert [AL10] will be triggered, then if the
fault continues, [ERR3] ―detector failed‖ is displayed. The operator will also run as if the detector is triggered.
The [ERR3] can only be cleared by pressing the Reset button, which electronically uninstalls the detector. See
Detector & Loop Fault Diagnostics on page 44.
6. The Smart Touch Controller automatically governs frequency selection of all HY-5A detector modules. This
simplifies installation and guarantees that there is no cross talk between multiple loops. The frequency can also
be manually selected if needed, see the installer menu options.
7. Sensitivity is the only adjustment on the detector itself. Generally, sensitivity does not need to be increased unless
the loop is large loop or there are multiple loops connected to one detector. Do not exceed more than 200 sq/ft of
loop area to one detector.
The rotary switch for sensitivity has eight settings, which are as follows:
0 = Low, 1 = Normal, 2 = Medium, 3 = High (0 - 3 add the boost feature*)
4 = Low, 5 = Normal, 6 = Medium, 7 = High
*Boost increases the sensitivity during a call and is useful for maintaining continuous detection when the signal
may become weak, such as semi-trucks.
8. Vehicle detector functions are configurable in the Installer Menu as shown below.

The outside and inside Obstruction Loop Detectors ―OOLD‖ or ―IOLD‖ are factory configured to fully re-open the gate as a
default setting. In the Installer menu, each detector can individually be set so that when the gate is closing there is only a
pause if triggered. To change the IOLD setting, go to the menu item [ir__] and set to 0. For the OOLD, go to the menu
item [or__] and set to 0.

Section 5 —Standard 11 Pin Box Type Vehicle Detector Installation
1. If standard 11 pin vehicle detectors are to be used, install the sockets into the control box (if there is room) or in a
separate external housing. The diagram below is for connection reference only. Other items may already be
installed in the physical area where the sockets are shown.
2. Both 24 Volts AC or DC are available, so either detector voltage may be used (24 VAC is not available if the
operator is a battery type). 24 VAC is available at the spade terminals on the lower left corner of our power supply
(marked ACC). 24 VDC is available from the Common Bus and the +24 V spade terminals next to the Common
Bus.
3. Connect 24 Volt power to the detector. Polarity does not matter if the detector is a 24 AC model. If a DC detector
is used, pin #1 is (+) on a DC detector and pin #2 is ( - ).
4. Connect the output pin #6 to the Common Bus on the power supply and the output pin #5 to one of the four
detector inputs (depending upon the detector function required) on the Smart Touch Controller terminal strip.
5. If multiple detectors are used, run the power wires and common wire from socket to socket rather than running
each to the same location separately. The only wires that are separate are the output wire to the Smart Touch
Controller and the loop input wires.
6. Always keep the loop wires well twisted at all places beyond the area of the loop. The lead in portion sealed in a
saw cut does not need to be twisted so long as the wires are encapsulated in loop sealant and cannot move.

Section 5 —Detector & Loop Fault Diagnostics
If HySecurity HY-5A mini detector modules are used, the Smart Touch Controller has ability to store and report detector
and loop fault information for performance diagnostics. If The Smart Touch Controller senses a loop or detector problem,
the LCD display will flash the abbreviation for the affected detector (ELd – ioLd – ooLd – SLd) then it will flash the
appropriate Alert Code (ALE_) to disclose the nature of the problem and the buzzer will chirp.
Loop detector freq change alert
ALE7
2 chirps/sec every 15 seconds
Loop shorted or open alert
ALE8
2 chirps/sec every 15 seconds

Even if the loop problem self heals, historical data about detector/loop performance and a log of Alerts, Faults and Errors
can be retrieved from the Smart Touch Controller by downloading from the RS232 communications port. Optional
HySecurity ―START‖ software, a PC computer, and a special download cable are required to retrieve and read this data
(see bottom of page 31).
Frequency:
Knowing the exact frequency of a loop can be useful as a diagnostic tool, and verifying that the loop frequency is stable is
also very valuable information. To view the actual loop frequency of a specific vehicle detector, go to the setting for that
detector, then switch the selection to 1 and press the PROGRAM button. The display will flash between [F_xx] which are
the high digits, then the low digits of the loop frequency counter. For example: [F_05] + [3413] would represent a
frequency of 53,413 Hertz. The highest digit will probably be only a single digit because loop frequency is usually a fivedigit number, between 20,000 to 80,000 Hertz.
Changing the Loop Frequency:
HY-5A detectors can never crosstalk. If for any reason, you want to manually change the loop frequency, change the
menu selection to a flashing 4 and then press the SELECT button. Each detector has a choice of four frequencies. To
exit, press the PROGRAM button and the controller will perform a reset and tune to the new frequency setting.
Call Strength Level:
Knowing the strength level of a detector call is valuable because it provides information about how well the loop is actually
―seeing‖ a specific vehicle. For example, it may be useful to check to see if the loop is easily detecting the middle of a
high bed semi-truck. The strength of a detector call can be displayed in real time, on a scale of 1-7. As indicated in the
table below, when a detector’s menu setting is set to 2, and the PROGRAM button is pressed, the LCD display will read
[LE_x]. If the call strength is level 4 or less, consider increasing the sensitivity level, by adjusting the rotary switch on the
HY-5A detector.

Section 5 — Vehicle Detector Configuration & Anti-Tailgate Modes
Standard and Anti-tailgate modes are selectable under item [dL__] in the Installer Menu
(See Installer Menu #23 described on page 28.)
The detector function modes that result in Anti-Tailgating logic (modes 3 & 4 below) require the use of a separate inner
and outer obstruction detectors.
In order to use any vehicle detector logic mode other than mode 1, all the loops must be placed with the geometry and
spacing as shown in the loop layout drawings in Appendix.
Mode 1: (Default) An input from either the Free Exit, OOLD, IOLD or the Shadow detector will hold the gate open, reset
the close timer, and block all close inputs.
Mode 2: Same function as mode 1, except the close timer may time out, even with the Free Exit, OOLD, IOLD or Shadow
detector inputs active. If the close timer has counted to zero, the gate will close when all detector inputs are clear.
Mode 3: Same functions of mode 1, however the close timer is forced to zero when both the OOLD & IOLD are tripped
simultaneously. Additionally, all other close inputs are memorized and the gate closes immediately when all open
commands and vehicle detector inputs are clear.
Mode 4: Full Anti-tailgate logic. Mode 3 functions, plus the gate will stop during the opening cycle when both the OOLD &
IOLD are tripped simultaneously. When the OOLD & IOLD loops are cleared, the gate closes immediately. The OOLD
and IOLD can be individually set so that, if tripped while closing, the gate may pause only or reverse to reopen. The free
exit detector input is blocked while the gate is closing.

Section 6 — 24-Hour, 7 Day Time Option
This is an option you can order from HySecurity. The timer generates an open command which will hold the gate open
until it is released. Instructions on how to use and program it accompany the timer.
To connect the optional timer to the Smart Touch Controller, use the following schematic:
Connect the Timer Power Pin 1 to 24V (+)
Connect the Timer Power Pin 2 to COM
Connect the Timer Com Pin 3 to COM
Connect Timer NO Pin 4 to #7, Time Clock Open
Section 6 –Radio Remote Open Option
Mount a commercial style 24VDC
radio receiver (external antenna
type) on the inside of the operator,
below the electrical box. Knock out
the smallest hole in the lower right
corner of the electrical box and route
the wires to the area marked Radio
Options. Only three wire
connections are needed because
the 24-Volt supply and the radio
output share a wire. Being certain to
observe polarity, crimp the black
radio power wire together with one
of the radio output wires into a .25‖
spade connector and connect to the
COM terminal. Connect the red wire
to the +24V terminal and connect
the other radio output contact wire to
the spade marked OPEN. Note that
this terminal is the same as the #4
input terminal labeled REMOTE OPEN AND RADIO CONTROL on the main control board.
Mount an external antenna onto the top of a fixed post of the fence near the operator.
Connect the antenna into the socket on the radio receiver.
Set the ―DIP‖ switches in the receiver to match the same code used in the transmitter.
If there is also to be an edge sensor transmitter to reverse the gate, be certain to use a two channel commercial receiver.
Remember that each transmitter and receiver must have their codes set the same or they will not function.

Section 6 — Remote Release Option
Instructions for Releasing Drive Wheel Clamp Mechanism for Manual Operation
This remote release device consists of an air cylinder inside the operator, which pushes the wheel clamping device open,
a length of flexible air tubing, and a remote box containing a hand pump.
The hand pump is similar to the type used to inflate sports equipment or bicycle tires.
1. Remove hand pump from box. (Pull straight out to remove from mounting clips.)
2. Push threaded coupling, attached to end of tubing, into hand pump. Do not screw or twist.
3. Lock coupling in place by toggling the locking lever away from pump.
4. Pump until gauge pressure indicates 50 PSI. The clamp on the wheel should now be released and the gate can be
manually operated. Do not release pressure until all manual operations are complete.
5. When ready for automatic operation, release fitting from pump by lowering lever and pulling tubing straight out. This
will release the pressure on the wheel clamp mechanism.
6. Put pump and tubing back into enclosure.
GAUGE
Instructions for Placing the Operator Back in Service
1. Remove the cover from the operator.
2. Use the wheel clamp lever to re-engage the drive wheels.

Section 6 — Internal Solenoid Lock Instructions
Internal Solenoid Lock Description:
HySecurity offers an optional internal solenoid deadbolt lock that employs a ¾ inch stainless steel lock pin that fits into a
notch cut into the drive rail. The lock solenoid is voltage specific for 120V, 208V, 230V, or 480V, therefore be certain that
the operator voltage matches the solenoid voltage requirements. An internal indicator switch is also provided which may
be required in some installations in order to verify whether the deadbolt is in the locked or unlocked position.
Activation of a Solenoid Deadbolt Lock:
A solenoid lock must be activated prior to any gate motion or the gate will bind the lock mechanism. HySecurity’s internal
lock must also remain engaged until the soft stop time cycle is complete at the end of travel. To provide the solenoid lock
logic requirement, one of the three user relays (typically user relay 2) must be set to function #6 and wired to supply
power to the lock solenoid. The same relay function can easily be used to drive an external solenoid lock device as well.
Adjustment of the Factory Solenoid Lock:
Operators equipped with our factory solenoid lock require a notch to be cut into the outer vertical face of the drive rail. The
notch location is determined in the field after the gate operator is functioning properly. Run the gate to its full closed
position and note the location where the deadbolt pin strikes the drive rail. Mark for a 3-inch wide slot in the rail with the
lock pin in the center. Make two cuts with a hacksaw and break out the notched section. Operate the gate a few times to
verify that the deadbolt always enters the notched area.
The lock enclosure itself may need to be adjusted so that the lock pin strikes in the center of the vertical edge of the drive
rail. The face of the lock enclosure is slotted to accommodate this adjustment. With a ½ inch open end wrench, loosen the
two bolts retaining the lock enclosure and move the enclosure up or down to achieve the correct adjustment.
Electrical:
When the factory pre-installs the internal solenoid deadbolt lock, a terminal strip and an auxiliary contactor are added.
The two (2) high voltage wires to the solenoid attach directly to the auxiliary contactor as shown. Indicator lights or
interlocks can be connected to the contacts brought back to the terminal strip.

Section 7 — Troubleshooting
Section 2 — Mechanical and Hydraulic Adjustments* and Electrical Issues
Trouble with Gate Movement in General:
1. Disengage the operator from the gate and move the gate manually. If the gate does not roll well or is warped, fix the
gate before working on the gate operator.
2. For adequate grip, the red spring that clamps the drive wheels must be compressed to 2-inch in height. Adjust by
unclamping and turning the nut at the bottom of the threaded rod.
3. Look inside the operator under the wheels for metal shavings. Shavings indicate that the gate panel or the operator is
out of alignment. Realign the operator as necessary. The operator must always be square to the gate and the drive
rail must be shimmed if necessary to maintain an in/out tolerance of ¼-inch throughout full gate travel.
Electrical Problems in General:
The VFD Motor Controller displays trip and fault codes. The most common are shown in Table 7.1, page 55 which
explains the possible causes and resolutions. If you discover a trip code that is not in the table, refer to the Commander
SK Getting Started Guide published online by the manufacturer of the motor controller, Control Techniques, Ltd.
Similarly, the Smart Touch Controller reports system malfunctions on its LCD display and the buzzer will emit a series of
chirps at defined intervals. Review the matrix of Alerts, Faults and Errors listed on the next page. To disclose the status of
all inputs on the terminal strip, the LED tact button must be pushed. This button is in the upper left corner near the STOP
input.
Specific Types of Problems:
"I pushed the OPEN and CLOSE buttons, but nothing runs."
1. Verify that the line voltage is present and matches the operator voltage + 10%.
2. Verify that control voltage is present at the power supply Common and 24VDC terminals. It may be necessary to
reset the circuit breaker (black button) on the transformer.
3. Verify a jumper wire joins Common (COM) to STOP, if an external stop button is not used.
4. Verify there are no Faults or Errors reported on the LCD display. See table on next page.
5. If the motor VFD intermittently shuts off, voltage drop due to undersized wires is the likely cause. See page 59 for
maximum allowable length of wiring runs versus wire size.
"The pump is running but the wheels are slow or not turning at all."
(Hydraulic pressure is between 0 - 700 PSI on the gauge)
1. Verify VFD display reads 50Hz or greater during normal operation. If not reading >50Hz, verify deceleration
switches and ramps are installed correctly.
2. If the motor has been replaced, verify CCW motor rotation. To reverse, switch any two AC lines between the
motor and the VFD.
3. Check the level of the hydraulic oil by removing the plug in the reservoir. If necessary, add oil at this location to
within one inch of the filler hole.
4. Unplug the hoses and run the pump. If the pressure is low, adjust the relief valve.
5. If relief valve does not respond to adjustment, remove it entirely and depress the plunger at the nose end with a
blunt tool (Allen wrench) and blow it to remove any debris.
“Hydraulic pressure is above 1100 PSI”
1. Unclamp and spread the drive wheels, then retest. If the wheels turn, verify that the gate will move by manually
pushing it. Fix the gate hardware if necessary.
2. Verify that the hose end quick disconnects are fully seated when connected.
3. Loosen brake valves a little by turning clockwise.
"The wheels turn backwards, or only in one direction."
1. Check hose connections for correct handing.
2. Press the Open button and verify that the directional Valve coil develops a strong pull. (This can be tested by
removing the nut retaining the coil and grasping the coil)
"The gate only opens or only closes."
1. If the gate only opens, the directional valve is probably stuck and needs replaced.
2. If the gate only closes, the valve coil is not being energized, or is defective.
* Refer to page 13, as well.

NOTE: The green LED near the ―coin‖ battery on Smart Touch Controller is the ―heartbeat‖ of the processor. This LED
always blinks at a steady pace which indicates normal operation.
Gate Speed: The speed at which a hydraulic operator moves a gate is determined by the size of the pump and the size of
the actuator components. Just like a gear box, this speed is not adjustable. Attempting to slow a gate by changing a
valve setting produces inefficiency and heat. If the speed of a gate must be changed, contact your HySecurity distributor.
Extremely cold weather is unlikely to seriously affect the speed of the gate, because HySecurity employs a special grade
of hydraulic oil that we call Uniflow oil, which maintains a linear viscosity over a broad range of temperatures. Because of
this high quality oil and other design considerations, we rate our operators for service in ambient temperatures of -40F
degrees to 130F degrees. If the speed of your operator has been affected by cold weather, verify that the gate hardware
is not impaired by ice and verify that the reservoir is filled with Uniflow oil. Consider adding a heater in extreme weather.

Section 7 — Understanding VFD Motor Controller Trip Codes
When  appears on the display it means that the VFD controller has sensed a fault which
triggers the operator to move off line. Match the fault code with Table 7.1 on page 55 and
follow the procedure discussed in the Solution column. Other fault codes may appear that
are not documented in the table, but can be found online in the Commander SK Getting
Started Guide published by the manufacturer of the motor controller, Control Techniques Ltd.
NOTE: A fault code (most often, ) will also appear on the STC display. You can clear
the STC display by pressing the RESET button on the STC keypad.
Clearing the VFD Motor Controller Display and
Viewing Trip Codes
1. To access the parameter view mode from the status mode (ih or rd display), press and
release the M (Mode) button.
2. To view previous trip codes once the motor controller has been reset, push and hold
either the up or down button until parameter 55 appears on the display.
NOTE: The two digit parameter (01 through 95) locations appear blinking on the left of
the display. Each parameter relates to specific set up or diagnostic operation.
3. Parameter 55 is the first of four memory locations
(55 through 58) and provides the most recent of four trip/fault codes. Having this
information available when contacting HySecurity Technical Support will speed up the
troubleshooting process.
4. Compare the trip code to Table 1.1 on page 2. Follow the procedures discussed in the
Solution column.
If you need further assistance, call HySecurity Technical Support at 800-321-9947.
NOTE: To clear a fault code on the VFD, press the Stop/Reset key.

Section 8 — General Maintenance
Hydraulic System
Fluid Level: Under normal conditions, hydraulic systems do not consume oil. Before adding any oil, check the system
thoroughly for leaks. Remove the bright metal plug in the tank, fill to plug level, then replace plug. We only recommend
our Uniflow hydraulic oil; part number MX000970, which is sold in one-gallon containers by our distributors. Never use
brake fluid. It will severely damage the hydraulic system. Use of any oil other than Uniflow oil may void the
operator warranty.
Look for leaks: Occasionally there may be slight seeping at the fittings after some usage. Tightening of the fittings
usually corrects the problem. If leaking persists, replace "O" rings, fittings or hoses, if required. No further leaks should
occur.
Oil Change: A hydraulic system does not foul its oil, unlike a gas engine. Oil changes do not need to be frequent.
HySecurity recommends draining the reservoir and replacing the oil at five-year intervals. Oil breakdown caused by heat
is the main concern. If the unit is subjected to high use, especially in a warm climate, change the oil more frequently.
To change the hydraulic oil, remove the reservoir from the pump unit, completely empty it, wipe the reservoir clean, and
clean the derby screen before re-assembling. Refill with new Uniflow hydraulic oil (available from your distributor). To
avoid overfilling, fill only through the removable plug opening near the tank top. Slowly pour the oil into the tank until the
oil is within one inch of the filler port. Replace the plug and wipe up any spilled oil. Spilled oil will dry to a very sticky and
messy consistency.
Cold Weather:
1. Check that your reservoir is filled with our Uniflow high performance oil.
2. Excessive ice buildup can partly or totally jam gate operation. Check function by operating the gate manually.
Electrical Controls
Before servicing, turn off power and disconnect switch.
No routine maintenance is needed for the electrical system or controls. If the environment is very sandy or dusty, or has
many insects, be certain to seal all electrical enclosure holes. Blow the dust out of the electric panel with compressed air.
A qualified technician may troubleshoot with the aid of the troubleshooting guide in this appendix. If it is necessary to call
a distributor for assistance, be sure to have your model and serial number ready. Other helpful information would include
the name of the job, approximate date of installation, and operator service record, especially any work that has been done
recently.
How to Adjust the Pressure Relief Valve: To check your relief valve setting, first disconnect the hoses. Run the
operator either open or closed (the gate will not move with the hose disconnected). The pressure gauge will show current
relief pressure. The relief valve is found on the pump pack. It has an adjusting head and lock nut. To adjust, loosen the
lock nut and screw the threaded bolt clockwise for increased pressure, counterclockwise to decrease pressure. More
information is available on the yellow tag attached to the pump pack.

Special Notes:
*1. Your gate and gate hardware will require more maintenance than your HySecurity operator. A damaged gate or worn
hardware may cause slow or erratic operation and will result in excess drive wheel wear. Lubricate gate hardware more
frequently and check for smooth operation by opening the toggle clamping mechanism and then pushing the gate
manually. One person should easily be able to push all but the largest of gates. Damaged or warped gate panels should
be straightened or replaced.
*2. Normally, drive wheel life is many years. They are designed to avoid slipping on the rail. Wheels may be greatly
shortened by any of these faults: clamping spring not adjusted correctly, operator misaligned in relation to gate panel,
badly warped gate panel, extremely stiff gate hardware, and/or loose wheel mounting bolts (tighten to 25 ft. lb).
*3. Verify that the red clamping spring is compressed tightly so that drive wheels apply a strong grip on drive rail. The red
spring should normally be compressed to 2‖ in height.
*4. The limit switch and deceleration switch rollers should ride ¼‖ to ½‖ below the drive rail, near the center of the channel.
Maladjustment may result in false or early tripping or no limit function at the end of travel. Verify that the limit trip ramps
are tightly bolted to the drive rail.
*5. The oil level should remain no less than one inch below the filler hole. See maintenance instructions for oil filling. Loss
of fluid is not normal and indicates a leak that must be located and repaired. Use Uniflow fluid, part MX000970, if
additional fluid is required.
*6. Replace the Smart Touch Controller battery with DL 2025 / DL 2032 or CR 2025 / CR 2032.

Section 8 — Use and Adjustment of the Manual Release Mechanism
All SlideDriver operators come equipped with a toggle handle manual release mechanism to disengage the drive wheels
from the drive rail. The manual release is located under the electric control panel and to the right of the hydraulic motors.
During shipment, a piece of Styrofoam is placed between the coupling nut and the chassis. If the packaging is still in
place, discard it.
To disengage the drive wheels, simply pull the aluminum handle down.
DANGER: The toggle handle rapidly ―pops‖ down as the loaded spring releases. Hold the handle appropriately
so your finders do not get pinched. As the lower drive wheel drops and disengages from the drive rail, it causes
the coupling nut on the threaded rod to drop to its lowest position and push on the base of the operator. This
causes the upper drive wheel to lift and disengage from the drive rail.
If the drive rail was installed at the correct height to the chassis, the manual toggle release mechanism will equally spread
both wheels away from the drive rail. If the rail has been mounted higher than specified, it may be necessary to insert a
3/8" bolt into the bottom of the coupling nut which will create additional lift clearance for the upper drive wheel when
manually released. If used, adjust the ⅜" bolt so the drive wheels spread equally when the manual toggle release is fully
disengaged.
Manual Release Handle
Red spring controls wheel grip
Coupling Nut for spring tension
adjustment
NOTE: The coupling nut must be adjusted correctly so the wheels provide a strong clamping force on the drive
rail. The red spring should measure 2 to 2⅛-inch (5 to 5.5cm) in height when under the correct compression.

Appendix — Wire Size Schedules & Charts
For 1/2-hp through 5-hp motors
Supplying a gate operator with the right electrical service is crucial to the performance of the operator and the life of its
electrical components. If the wire size used is too small, the voltage loss, especially during motor startup, will prevent the
motor from attaining its rated horsepower. The percentage of horsepower lost is far greater than the percentage of
voltage loss. A voltage loss could also cause the control components to chatter while the motor is starting, substantially
reducing their life due to the resultant arcing. There is no way to restore lost performance resulting from undersized wires,
except to replace them; Choose a sufficient wire size at initial installation to avoid costly rewiring.
The tables on the following page are based on copper wire and allow for a 5% voltage drop. The ampere values shown
are the service factor ampere rating (maximum full load at continuous duty) of the motor. A
20A circuit (protected with a 20A Inverse Time Breaker) should be provided, at minimum.
Always connect electrical power and ground the operator in accordance with the National Electrical Code, article’s 430
and 250 plus other local codes that may apply.
The maximum distance shown is from the gate operator to the power source; assuming that source power is from a panel
box with adequate capacity to support the addition of this motor load. The values are for one operator, with no other loads
applied to the branch circuit. Avoid placing more than one gate operator to a circuit, but if you must, be certain to reduce
the maximum allowed distance by half.
Low Voltage Control Wiring:
The Smart Touch controller has very sensitive control inputs so the wire size of the control wiring is not a significant
issue.The following is a chart of maximum distances for controls:

Appendix — Performance of 50VF Operators on 1Ø/3Ø, 50/60Hz Power
A HySecurity 50VF2, 50VF-EFO, or 50VF3 operator can operate on a wide variety of incoming power.
50Hz/60Hz operation with no changes or reconnection
1Ø or 3Ø operation by field reconnection.
The incoming voltage must match the operator nameplate. Although the electric motor can be reconnected, a
different VFD (motor controller inside the grey control box) is required between 460V and 208V/230V.
Any AC powered peripherals such as locks, card readers and other devices need to be checked for compatibility.
The electric motors in all VF2 and VF3 operators are 3Ø/60Hz motors and are connected for the voltage on the
operator nameplate. (208V/230V or 460V)
How is this done?
The VF controller in the operator is rated to operate on input frequencies ranging from 48Hz through 62Hz on 1Ø
or 3Ø power (a jumper connection is required for phase change) but only on either 460VAC or 208V/230V. (A
change between 460V and 230V, either direction, requires replacing the VF controller).
The control transformer in the operator is tapped for multiple voltages and rated for 50/60Hz operation.
The VF controller first rectifies and filters the incoming power to DC, which has no frequency or phase. It then
creates 3Ø variable voltage/variable frequency AC for the motor from the DC.
Depending on the model, the VF controller ramps the motor voltage and frequency from [email protected] at start, to
either 208/230 or 480 VAC @ 60Hz for full speed. This allows use of 60Hz motors regardless of the incoming
frequency.
Since the input voltage/frequency is converted to DC to begin with, there is absolutely no relationship between the input
frequency/phase and frequency/phase of the power supplied to the motor. The input could be 1Ø or 3Ø, 48Hz or 62Hz
and the controller/motor combination wouldn’t care. It will create the ramped 3Ø voltage and frequency for which it is
programmed.
NOTE: 50VF operators connected for 1Ø operation will draw more current from the utility than those connected for 3Ø
(approximately double); because the utility power to run the machine will be carried to the operator on two wires instead of
three. Be sure to allow for this difference when specifying wire size.
In-Field Connections
50VF-series operators are field re-connectable for 1Ø or 3Ø input power without changing the VFD Controller.
WARNING: 50VF-series operators CANNOT be connected to 120V, 1Ø power or 575V, 3Ø power. If any attempts
are made to do so, serious injury, electrical shock, or death may result. Any electrical damage occurring to the
operator will not be covered by the Limited Warranty.
WARNING: 50VF-series operators are NOT field reconfigurable between 208/230VAC and 480VAC power. The VFD
Motor Controller in a 208/230VAC unit must be replaced with a VFD Motor Controller manufactured for the higher
(480VAC) voltage input.
