Digger Specialties Inc. cannot over emphasize the need for safety when installing and using
power gate systems. It is of the utmost importance that the installer and owner/operator follow
all installation and usage instructions.
Safety procedures have been established by UL 325 and ASTM F2200 for your protection.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
(Caution) Not following these instructions may cause injury and/or death.
Before installing this system be sure your gate, gate location, and opener comply with all
applicable local codes for the class of gate being installed.
These automated gate systems are intended for vehicular traffic and not pedestrian traffic.
Gates must be installed so as to preclude any entrapment areas.
a. Walls, posts, or other stationary devices located on the side toward which the gate swings, must be a
minimum of 16” (406 mm) away from the gate when the gate is in the full open position. This does not
apply if the object is less then 4” (102 mm) from the gate pivot point centerline. (See figures 1 and 2)
b. Gates not complying with this requirement must meet the specifications for entrapment protection
provisions of UL 325
3. Keep people and objects away from the gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING
GATE
4. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.
5. Test the gate operator monthly. Check for proper function of all safety devices. Failure to test periodically will
increase the risk of injury or death.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read section (F) for maintenance.
7. Do NOT change the gate to manual use while the gate is moving.
8. Do not add any items to the gate that are not approved for use with this gate system
9. Automated gates are divided into 4 classes per ASTM F2200 and UL 325 standards. Each class requires
specific clearances or entrapment protection devices. Each class requirement can be met with this gate system
and optional accessories. Know your area code requirements. The classes are:
a. Class I – Residential Vehicular Gate-- A vehicular gate intended for use in a home of one to four
single family dwelling, or a garage or parking area associated therewith.
b. Class II – Commercial/General Access Vehicular Gate – A vehicular gate intended for use in a
commercial location or building such as a multi-family housing unit (five or more single family
units), hotel, garages, retail store, or other building serving the general public.
c. Class III – Industrial/Limited Access Vehicular Gate -- A vehicular gate intended for use in an
industrial location or building such as a factory or loading dock area or other locations not intended
to service the general public.
d. Class IV – Restricted Access Vehicular Gate -- A vehicular gate intended for use in a guarded
industrial location or building such as an airport security area or other restricted access locations not
servicing the general public, in which unauthorized access is prevented by means of supervision by
security personnel.
10. Class IV vehicular horizontal swing gates shall be installed in accordance with security related parameters
specific to the application.
11. Entrapment protection per UL 325 is required when there is less then 16” of clearance between the gate
and a structure when the gate is in the fully open position.
Entrapment protection is also required if the distance from the pivot point of the gate to the edge of the
mounting structure is less then 4”. (See figure 1)

12. Gates shall not swing into public access areas.
13. Manual gate latches shall not be installed on any automated gate. Locks or security devices that function with
the automated gates are acceptable.
14. Do not increase the potentiometer setting to compensate for a damaged gate.
Figure 2
15. Gate operator controls must be located a minimum of 6’ (1.83 m) from any
moving portion of the gate in the open or closed position.
16. Gate operator controls must be placed where they cannot be reached from
outside the secured area.
17. Gate operator controls must be in the line of sight when the gate is moving.
Reset switch is on the control box.
18. Gate operator controls box must have a security feature to prevent
unauthorized use.
19. Properly installed gates shall meet the standard requirement of UL 325 and
ASTM F 2200 as applicable for gates in Class I, II, III, or IV. Check local
codes for any further requirements.
20. Warning signs (see figure 2) shall be positioned on both sides of each gate and
easily visible. The signs shall be attached to the gates. (Signs are supplied with
the gate)
21. Do NOT weld or alter the pivoting end of the gate. Electrical parts are
encased in the rounded tube and welding on, or altering it will void the
warranty
22. Most local emergency responder departments (Police, Fire, and Ambulance) have their specific requirements
for the emergency opening of the gate. Check with the local departments for their requirements. The
circuit board in the control box has a terminal for emergency opening.
23. Keep these instructions in your files for any future references.

Tools Needed:
• Power Drill and drill bit (Bit size and type
is dependent on gate mounting surface
• Hex Bit Socket set or Hex wrenches
• Tape Measure
• Level (a string level is beneficial when
installing a double drive system.)
• Wire Strippers
• Small Screwdriver
Pre-Installation Considerations.
DSI will engineer the size of the post needed to
support the gate. Attaching the gate to anything other
than the post recommended by DSI is not advised.
Locate where you will place the control panel. You will
need to run appropriately sized wires from the control
panel to the bottom hinge of each gate. Approximately
16’ of wire is supplied with each gate. As mentioned
previously do not position the gate so that it will swing
into public access areas. Follow all local codes and
ordinances when positioning the Turning Point gates.
Gates that are to have a magnetic or power bolt lock
system should have the wires routed in the gate to the
location of the device prior to hanging the gate. Wires
should terminate the gate at a bottom hinge location.
A. Gate Installation Instructions.
1. Lay out a plan for the positioning of the
gate and the control box. Make sure that
you will have a minimum of 6’ from any
moving part of the gate to the control box.
The control box must be located within
direct view of the gate.
2. Dig a trench, deep enough to prevent wires
from damage, from the control box to the
bottom hinge of each gate. (NOTE: Check
local codes for any specific requirements
when routing 12-volt electrical
underground.)
3. Position the bottom hinge of the gate onto
the gatepost. (If this is to be a double drive
system start with the gate on the highest
ground.) The top of the hinge bracket is to
be positioned at a point 3/8” above the
desired bottom of the gate. Be sure the
hinge is perpendicular. Level the top of the
hinge mount bracket. If the bracket is not
kept perpendicular and level the gate will
not function properly. Attach bracket with
appropriate fasteners. (See figure 1)
TM

Loosen the collar clamp on the bottom
bracket to allow the pivot end of the gate to
fit into the collar.
Feed the 12-volt, 2 wire, jacketed power
cable at the pivot end of the gate (inside the
pipe) through the hole in the bottom center
of the bottom bracket. There is an angle
bracket beside the hole . The wire will feed
through the hole easily if the wire is guided
in at the top of the bracket and pulled from
the bottom with the wire rubbing against
the bottom of the angle bracket
simultaneously. (See figure 2)

Set the galvanized pipe onto the bottom
bracket so that the pipe seats fully into the
collar. Be sure the wire is not pinched
between the collar and the pipe. (See figure

keep it close to level. Also support the gate
to keep it from tipping to the left or right of
the bracket. (See figure 4)

Place the nylon “C” washer onto the top pin
of the gate. And then place the top hinge
onto the pin. The top hinge bracket should
touch the nylon “C” washer but allow the
washer to rotate. Place the top hinge against
the mounting surface. (You may need to
adjust your gate support to achieve this.)
Vertically level the gate measuring along
the pivot tube of the gate. Fasten the top
hinge with the appropriate fasteners. Be
sure the hinge stays in contact with the
Nylon washer, and that the gate is level
vertically. (See figure 5)

Remove the gate supports used in step 6 to
stabilize the gate. The gate should now be
able to swing freely in either direction.
Position the gate where you want it to be
when it is in the closed position. Snug the
hex bolts on the either side of the collar and
then back them off ½ revolution. (See
figure 6)
Pivot Tube
power source and reverse the
positive and negative wires and let
the gate move until it stops.
b. If the gate is moving in the
direction opposite what you want
to open the gate continue to run
the gate till it stops.
c. Remove the power source after the
gate stops and manually return the
gate to the closed position. (If the
gate is hard to rotate loosen the
hex bolts in step 9 to allow easier
turning.)
d. If there is no movement when the
power is applied reverse the
polarity of the wires and continue
through steps 10 (a), (b) and (c).
11. With the gate in the closed position tighten
the hex bolts on each side of the gate
(figure 6) at the bottom bracket. (Avoid
over tightening the hex bolts. Over
tightening will cause threads to strip,) Try
the gate again and see if it travels as is
desired. You may need to switch polarity
on the wires to have the gate function.
(NOTE: Electric flows from negative to
positive. The direction of the electric flow
in a 12-volt motor determines the
movement direction of the motor. The drive
mechanisim rotates the gate in one
direction with the 12-volt polarity one-way
and reverses when the polarity is reversed.)
12. Tighten the hex set screws on the collar.
The setscrews can take more tightening
pressure then the bolts at the side of the
collar. (See figure 7)

10. Using any 12-volt source attach one of the
wires in the power cable to positive and the
other wire to negative.

note which direction it is moving.
If it is moving in the direction that
you want the gate to move to
open, release the wires from the

1. The control box contains the circuit board,
wireless receiver with it’s antenna, test
switch, and alarm. It also houses the
battery. The Circuit board (figure E1) has
dipswitches, fuses, and sensitivity
adjustments. Do not remove the circuit
board or touch the backside of it. Doing so
will void the warrantee.

Route the wires to the control box from the
gate(s) and attach the wires from one gate
to the terminals marked “GATE 1”.
Polarity of the wires is not critical. If there
is a second gate attach those wires to the
terminal marked “GATE 2”. Again polarity
is not critical (see section C. Control Box
Wiring Functions (o) and (p).
Attach the charging source(s) to the
“SOLAR/AC” terminal. A 12-volt AC/AC
transformer (supplied with control box [see
figure E2) may be plugged into any 110volt receptacle. Wires (not supplied) are to
be run from the transformer to the terminals
on the circuit board. DO NOT
CONNECT 110-VOLT AC DIRECTLY
INTO THE CONTROL BOX. Solar
Panels and/or AC/AC transformers may be
attached to this terminal. These terminals
are not polarity sensitive.

Turning Point gates are a low voltage (12volt) system. This minimizes the risk of
electric shock. All wires routed into the
control panel must pass through the strain
relief fittings at the bottom of the control
box.
Mount the control box in the desired
location.
Check the dipswitches and make sure all
switches on the main panel board are
closed. (See figure E1 (a))

Attach the 12-Volt battery. This is polarity
sensitive. DO NOT reverse the polarity
when attaching the battery. To hook up
the battery with the wrong polarity will
cause the panel to fail and void the
warrantee!
Press the button on the remote transmitter
to activate the gate(s). (If the remote does
not function see section E “Trouble
Shooting”).
a. If the gates do not move, allow 10
seconds and press the button
again.
b. On a double drive system, if one
gate moves and the other gate does
not, allow the one gate to go till it
stops. Reverse the wires on the
one gate and press the button
again. This time one gate only will
move and synchronize with the
other gate. Wait 10 seconds and

will move together
Sensitivity adjustment (via potentiometers
can be made to increase or decrease the
amount of resistance the gates will
encounter before shutting down. This has
been preset at the factory and should not
need changing. Reasons for changing
would be to overcome extreme wind loads
on large gates or limited resistance on very
small gates. There are two potentiometers
on the control panel, one for each gate.
They are small round discs in the control
box with a screwdriver slot and marked
“GATE 1” and “GATE 2”. (See figure E1)

C. Control Box Wiring & Terminal Functions
1. When Wiring items into the terminal block
strip approximately ¼” of insulation from the
wire and cautiously insert the wire below the
terminal screw. Be sure that the screw secures
all wire strands. If some of the strands are not
secured they may cause a malfunction in the
system.
2. There are 18 terminals in the terminal block.
The following describes their function.
a. SOL AC/AC – Input for solar
panel or supplied AC power
transformer. Recommended input
voltage is between 12-volt and 18volts at 1ampere. Polarity input is
not critical. USE OF VOLTAGE
HIGHER THAN 18-VOLTS
MAY CAUSE MALFUNCTION.
DO NOT CONNECT 110-VOLT
ELECTRICAL CURRENT TO
PANEL.
b. Battery – This is where the 12-volt
battery is connected. Polarity is
critical. Attach the positive wire to
the “+” side and the negative wire
to the (-) side.
c. Switch – System power switch is
used to turn the system on and off.
It will also reset the system. Upon
power up the system is reset and
will initialize to the gate being
fully closed and locked.

CSF (Contact Strip Front of Gate)
– Input for contact safety edge
installed on front of gate.
Activated input will prevent the
gate from closing, and reverse the
gate direction if the gate was
closing.
CSB (Contact Strip Back of Gate)
– Input for contact safety edge
installed on back of gate.
Activated input will prevent the
gate from opening, and reverse the
gate direction if the gate was
opening.
EMER. VEH. (Emergency
Vehicle Opener) – Input for
emergency vehicle opener.
Activation will open gate.
Continuous activation will prevent
gate from automatically closing.
See your local police, fire, and
emergency response teams for
required usage.
EXIT DET. (Exit Detection) –
Input for devices to be used to
only open the gate. Activated
input will start the gate opening
procedure if gate was not moving.
Input while gate is moving will
have no effect.
Keypad – Input for wired keypad,
or other fixed input device in sight
of the gate. Activation will
function same as the remote
transmitter
STOP (NON-CONTACTING
INPUT) – Input for noncontacting safety sensors such as
an optical sensor, with a normal
open input. Activated input will
stop gate instantly and return gate
to fully open position.
SPARE 12-VOLT – There are
three of these on the terminal
block. These provide access points
for 12_Volt DC power that may be
used to power peripheral
accessories and safety devices.
These terminals may be left
unused. CAUTION! Do NOT

high volume (100dB minimum)
alarm (included). If alarm is
activated, clicking the on /off
switch will silence the alarm and
reset the system.
l. LIGHT – Output for 12-volt
lighting. Lights turn on when gate
is activated and will remain on for
approximately 30 seconds after the
cycle is complete. Do not exceed
40 watts of lighting.
m. LOCK – Terminal points for
Power Bolt Lock motor(s) leads.
Multiple locks may be employed.
n. MAG LOCK – Terminal points
for magnetic lock leads. The
magnetic lock activates as soon as
the gates complete their close
cycle. The gate opening cycle will
not begin until the magnetic lock
disengages. The magnetic lock is
wired into the terminal labeled
“Mag Lock” Polarity is not
critical. Dipswitches 5 and 6 must
be open.
o. GATE 1 – Terminal points for
gate motor leads. Polarity depends
on desired swing of gate. Use this
terminal with a single gate.
p. GATE 2 – Terminal points for
gate motor leads. Polarity depends
on desired swing of gate. Use this
terminal for gate 2 of a double

5, 7, and 9 are open and 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 are
closed (see figure E3). Synchronizing is critical
for the system to function.
4. Fuses in the control panel are maximum
15Ampere.
5. There is an antenna wire that hangs in the lid
portion of the control box. This is a wire
attached to the receiver circuit board at one end
and the other end hangs loose in the box. If
there is a cover added to the standard control
box the reception might be diminished if the
antenna wire is not ran outside the added cover.

3. In the control box cover/lid is a small circuit
board. This is the wireless transmitter receiver.
(see figure E3) It is connected to the circuit
board with a three (3) wire lead. On this panel
are a series of dipswitches that must be matched
to the wireless transmitter dipswitches. For
Example when the dipswitch is dipped toward
the numbers on switch number 1 in the
transmitter, it must be the same in the receiver.
There are 10 switches in this cluster. Make your
own unique setting and match it with the
dipswitches in the wireless transmitter. These
may be changed periodically for your security.
From the factory the transmitter and the receiver
are matched by alternating the dipswitches. 1, 3,

D. Features and Adjustments
1. Dipswitches can be adjusted to make some
additional functionality. Switching the
dipswitches should be done with a sharp
wooden lead pencil. An automatic close
feature can be created by dipswitch
adjustment as shown below (figure AF1).
This will have the gate close after a
specified period of time being open.
a. Dipswitch # 4 will make the gates
open simultaneously or
sequentially. When in the
sequential mode the first gate will
move about 5-7 seconds prior to
the second gate If only one gate is
used this switch should be closed
for simultaneous operation.
Double drive systems with a
power bolt lock may use either
method. If the double drive system
has a magnetic lock the switch
must be in the open position for
sequential operation.
b. Dipswitch #5 will select the power
bolt activation when in the closed
position and the magnetic lock
when in the open position.
c. Dipswitch #6 will disable the
power bolt lock in the closed
position. This switch must be in
the open position to have either
the power bolt or the magnetic
lock enabled

Low voltage (12-volt) lights can be wired
into the control panel. There is a terminal
marked for lights. The lights will turn on
when the system is activated. Lights will
remain on for approximately 30 seconds
after the cycle is completed.
3. The Power Bolt Lock is designed to close 4
seconds after the gate close cycle is
complete. The gate open cycle will also not
begin till the power bolt has unlocked.
Polarity is critical for the power lock.
a. Wires must be run through the
gate to the location that the Power
Bolt Lock is to be attached. Holes
have been predrilled for wire. This
is easiest to accomplish prior to
hanging the gate. (see figure ML2)
b. Before attaching the lock to the
gate extend the bolt by touching
the lead wire to the bolt to a 12volt power source. Reverse the
wires if the bolt does not extend
on first contact. Lay the lock with
the bolt extended on the ground.
c. Be sure the dipswitches are set so
that the bolt lock is functional and
enabled (Switch #5 closed and
switch # 6 open).
d. Activate the gates. The bolt should
retract before the gates begin
moving and extend 4 seconds after
the gates fully close.
e. If the bolt activation is not correct
in this sequence, reverse the bolt
lock wires on the terminal and try
again. When the bolt lock is in
Lock

to the gate. If wires are
disconnected when the bolt lock is
attached note where each wire was
attached on the terminal and return
them to the same terminal.

with grommets or other means of
secure protection.
Exception -- On a single gate
installation the electromagnet can
be attached to the post where the
gate strikes. In such a situation
attach the magnet receiver on the
gate aligned with the
electromagnet on the post.
Run the wire supplied with the
electromagnet to the control box.
If the electromagnet is in the gate
structure, terminate the wires from
the gate as close to the hinge
location as practical. (see figure
ML3)
Bottom Gate Rail
Wires must be run through the
gate to the location that the
Electromagnet is to be attached.
(see figure ML2) Holes have been
drilled to route the wire. This is
easiest to accomplish prior to
hanging the gate. (see Exception)

Allow plenty of wire to permit the
rotation of the gate without
binding the wire or rubbing
against sharp edges.
A double drive system with
magnetic lock requires the system
dipswitches to be set to sequential.
(see AF1 Dipswitch 4)
Be sure that the magnet receiver is
aligned with the electromagnet in
the gate.
