IMPORTANT Site Considerations
for the D2 Turbo Low-Voltage
Before you attempt to use your new gate motor for the first time, you
should know:
 At no point must 220V be supplied to the system! This is a
low-voltage model and connecting a voltage supply that
exceeds its maximum specifications will irreparably damage
the electronics
 No earth terminal is provided for the incoming power, and is
not necessary, but the earthing lead must still be grounded to
the motor base plate as this serves as lightning protection
 The diameter of the cable needed to supply power to the
system will depend on the distance between the transformer
and the motor, as well as on the output voltage of the
transformer used. The table below shows the typical cable
thicknesses for corresponding distance and assumes a 16V AC
transformer output

2. General Description
The D2 Turbo is designed to open and close domestic sliding gates weighing up to
250kg. The gearbox, moulded from a high-tech engineering polymer not only looks good,
but is corrosion-free and guarantees that even if you live on the coast, your D2 Turbo
will just keep on going. A robust steel pinion ensures that your D2 Turbo can easily be
retrofitted on sites with existing steel rack and will deliver years of reliable service.
The D2 Turbo Low-Voltage is a cost-effective domestic sliding gate motor for gates
weighing up to 250kg. Its logic controller and onboard charger require only a low-voltage
AC or DC input, which means there is no need for costly high-voltage cable runs or
expensive isolators.
The integral 12V 5Ah battery (charged by an internal charger) comes with full battery
backup and advanced lightning protection so you can always get in – even when the
power is out. For increased power capacity you can install a larger, 7Ah battery
(your D2 Turbo was designed to cater for this), or you can even use a solar panel to
power it (See the section on Solar Panels, for more details about solar charging).
Advanced features of the D2 Turbo logic controller:
The D2 Turbo has various useful features and functions, all easily-accessible from a
user-friendly dial-based setup system:
 Opening and closing safety beam inputs with beam circuit functional test
 High-security cleared-beam Autoclose in conjunction with safety beam (PIRAC)
 Multiple Modes of Operation: Standard Mode, Open only Mode (multi-user), Reversing
Mode, and two Pre-flashing Modes
 Automatic closing with adjustable time delay, and pushbutton override
 Remote gate-status indicator (gate position, power failure, low battery, multiple
collision detection and Pillar Light status indication)
 Pedestrian Opening (with adjustable Autoclose time)
 Holiday Lockout
 Courtesy/Pillar-Light timer (fixed duration), with pre-delays and two
Pre-flashing Modes
 Selectable gate speed modes - Low Speed/High Speed (High Speed is the default)
 Positive Close Mode (e.g. ensure activation of electric fence contact switch)
 Onboard multichannel CENTURION code-hopping receiver with the ability to learn
transmitter buttons to specific functions (e.g. Gate trigger, Pedestrian Opening,
Holiday Lockout)
Infrared Safety Beams or equivalent detection device must be fitted
Remote LED must be fitted
Onboard receiver must be used or external access control device such as a keypad
or keyswitch that must be fitted
Pillar Lights/Pre-flash warning light must be fitted

WARNING!
Endstops are mandatory and must be fitted to prevent death
or accidental injury should the gate overrun its limits
Endstops
 Fit endstops capable of stopping the gate at rated speed. Refer to specifications at the
beginning of this manual for the operating speed

Make H>h to ensure gate will not jump over endstop
page 13
General considerations for the installation
 Always recommend the fitment of additional safety equipment such as Safety Edges
and Safety Beams, for additional protection against entrapment or other mechanical
risks
 Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation
 Check that enough space is available for the gate operator with the gate in the
required open position
 Check for loose, sandy soil if installing foundations, as the soil condition may require a
larger foundation
 Never fit the operator on the outside of the gate, where the public has access to it
Install the gate operator only if
 It will not pose a hazard to the public
 There is sufficient clearance to a roadway and/or public thoroughfares
 The installation will meet all municipal and/or local authority requirements once
completed
 The gate mass, length and application is within the operator specifications
 The gate is in good working order, meaning:
 that it moves freely
 does not move on its own if left in any position
 it can be installed to have sufficient clearance between moving parts when opening
and closing to reduce the risk of personal injury and entrapment
 Pushbuttons or keyswitches, when required, can be positioned so that the gate is in
line of sight of the operator
page 14
Guide-rollers and anti-lift brackets
 Guide-rollers must ensure that the gate is held vertically
 For improved safety, fit additional support post to prevent gate from falling over if
guide-rollers fail
 To prevent unauthorised access fit anti-lift brackets as shown
 The gap between the anti-lift bracket and the gate must be less than 5mm
Ensure that the gate cannot be lifted off the motor pinion with the anti-lift
bracket fitted
page 15
Starting and running forces
 Test the starting force of the gate as per the diagram. Use a pull scale to determine
the maximum amount of pull force required to get the gate moving
 Determine the running force of the gate by continuing to pull on the scale with just
sufficient force to keep it running and read off the maximum value in kgf shown on the
scale
 Where possible determine the gate mass
 The warranty will be void if the pull force and/or gate mass exceed the operator
specification as below:
 Starting force - 18kgf
 Running (rated) force - 9kgf
 Maximum gate mass - 250kgf

8. LIGHT:
Optional Pillar Lights (3 core LNE SWA, size according to power
requirements)
n1 = number of cores required by intercom
n2 = number of cores required by intercom
Possibly increase cable thickness if Pillar Lights are installed
Type of cable must adhere to municipal bylaws but typically SWA (steel wire armoured) cable is recommended.
The armouring provides excellent screening, which gives better protection against lightning – earth one end of the
screening)
Allows for all features such as pedestrian opening, status LED, etc., to be operated from the intercom handset
inside the dwelling. Number of cores and type of cable could vary depending on brand of access control system
being used
For optimum range, an external receiver can be mounted on the wall
page 17
9. Lubrication
The gearbox of the D2 Turbo is filled with grease during the assembly process, and the
gearset does not have to be lubricated ex-factory.
page 18
10. Operator Installation
Locate operator position
 To ensure operator does not protrude into the driveway, install the foundation plate at
least flush with the driveway entrance
 Determine a suitable position and vertical height for the operator by considering
Figures 7, 8 and 9
With careful selection of the rack configuration, and operator vertical height,
mounting of the rack could in some cases be greatly simplified.
If a theft-resistant cage is required, be sure to leave enough clearance from
pillars, etc.
It is typical to mount the rack above the pinion as shown in figures 7A, 8A and 9A for
each type of rack considered. However, figures 7B, 8B and 9B show in each case the rack
mounted underneath.
Pros of mounting the rack below the pinion
 The rack is more hidden from view
 It provides a very effective anti-lift bracket
 It ensures that as the gate beds in, the rack does not drop onto the pinion, loading the
operator unnecessarily

Foundation plate installation
When using a concrete foundation
it is recommended that the
foundation plate is welded to the
rail/track of the gate using short
length of flat bar, as in Figure 16.
This makes it possible to complete
the whole mechanical and
electrical installation, without
having to wait for the concrete to
set. After completing the
installation the concrete can be
poured and the operator left in the
Manual Mode until the concrete has
set.
1. The foundation plate can either be set
into a concrete foundation, as in Figures
11 to 17, or bolted down onto an
existing concrete plinth as shown in
Figure 18 and 19.
If the D2 Turbo is being used to replace
a D3 gate operator, refer to Figures 21 to
27.
Option 1: Cast foundation plate into
concrete
2A.Bend the anchor brackets outwards
as shown in Figure 11.
2B.Using a pair of long-nosed pliers, bend
the ends of the anchor brackets at a
90° angle.
3. Fit the mounting bolts to the
foundation plate and secure in
place with nuts and washer.
ENSURE THAT MOUNTING
STUDS AND LOCKNUTS ARE
FITTED BEFORE setting the
foundation plate in concrete or
bolting to an existing plate.
4. Do not finish pouring concrete
before the cables have been
Option 2: Bolt foundation plate onto
an existing concrete plinth
5. If bolting onto an existing concrete
plinth, place the foundation plate down in
the correct position and use the plate as
a template for marking the rawlbolt
holes.
page 23
6. Fit the mounting studs to the
foundation plate and secure in place with
the stud locknuts.
Do not bend out the anchor
brackets.
Route Cables and Secure Foundation Plate
1. Route cables as determined in Section 7, Cabling Requirements.
2. Make sure that all cables and conduits
protrude at least 400mm above the
foundation plate once installed.
3. Securely concrete or bolt the foundation
plate in position.
page 24
Option 3: Retrofitting D2 Turbo to an existing D3 foundation plate.
1. Grind off the existing mounting studs
from the D3 foundation plate as shown
in Figure 21.
2. Fit the three mounting studs to the
D2 Turbo foundation plate and secure in
place using the stud locknuts supplied
with this kit. The half-height nuts should
be used on the underside of the plate as
shown in Figure 22, as these will later be
used for height adjustment. However, if
space allows – i.e. there will be sufficient
clearance between the rack and the
pinion once the operator has been
mounted – the orange height-adjustment
nuts may be used.
Do not attempt to mount the gearbox without using either the halfheight nuts or the orange jacking nuts as doing so will result in the
gearbox being damaged when the hold-down nuts are tightened.
page 25
4. Use the supplied full-height hold-down
nuts to temporarily secure the plate in
place from above as shown in Figure 23.
5. Place the D2 Turbo foundation plate
onto the existing D3 plate in the
optimum position.
4. Carefully tack-weld the head of each
individual mounting stud onto the D3
foundation plate.
5. Remove the hold-down nuts and lift the
D2 Turbo foundation plate off of the
mounting studs.
Route Cables and Secure Foundation Plate
1. Route cables as determined in Section 7, Cabling requirements.
2. Make sure that all cables and conduits
protrude at least 400mm above the
foundation plate once installed.
Cable entry is allowed for in the far lefthand side corner of the gearbox.
3. Securely anchor the foundation plate in
concrete or bolt it in position.
Mount the gearbox
1. Fit the orange height-adjustment nuts to
the base as shown in Figure 28 to level
the gearbox
page 27
2. Adjust the nuts to be 7mm clear from
the base to allow for later adjustment.
3. Secure the gearbox in place, fitting a
washer, spring washer and M10 holddown nut onto each gearbox mounting.
4. Feed the cables through the dedicated
cable entry indent while fitting the
gearbox to the foundation plate.
page 28
5. Note how the cables route up onto the
control card.

11. Electrical Setup
1. Always check that the circuit breaker in the electrical panel is in the
OFF position, and that all high-voltage circuits (more than 42.4V)
are completely isolated from the mains supply before doing any
work.
2. Ensure that all low-voltage systems (less than 42.4V) are suitably
protected from damage, by disconnecting all sources of power such
as chargers and batteries before doing any work.
3. All electrical work must be carried out according to the requirements
of all applicable local electrical codes. (It is recommended that
a licensed electrical contractor perform such work)
Connect all Wiring
1. Connect all cables as required to the
control card, according to the wiring
diagrams on page 45.
FIGURE 55.
2. Check that the battery is connected to
the controller. Refer to page 45.
Ensure the battery polarity is
correct.

21.1. Gate operation
21.1.1. Full Gate Opening
The CENTURION remote controls supplied
with the D2 Turbo are used to operate the
gate.
However, most automatic gate installations
are also fitted with an intercom, which,
provides for communication between the
house or building and the gate. The handset
is usually fitted with a gate pushbutton,
which when pressed, sends a signal to the
D2 Turbo controller to operate the gate.
FIGURE 74.
21.1.2. Modes of Operation
To operate the gate to open fully, the D2 Turbo has three modes to choose from
depending on the application. Only one mode can be selected at any given time.
21.1.2.1. Standard Mode
Standard Mode is the most commonly used mode for domestic applications as it allows
full control of the gate. Press the remote control button for approximately one second to
set the gate in motion. If the remote control button is pressed while the gate is moving,
the gate will stop. Press the remote control button again and the gate will go into
reverse.
Autoclose, explained on page 51 and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) on page 56, can be used
with Standard Mode.
21.1.2.2. Open Only Mode
This mode is ideal for increased safety in multi-user, single dwelling applications.
If you select Open Only Mode, your gate will open when you press the button of the
remote control or the gate pushbutton on the intercom – but pressing the button again
while the gate is opening will be ignored. It will not cause the gate to stop or to reverse.
Only the internal Autoclose feature described on page 51 of this installation manual,
which is automatically enabled, will close the gate if you have selected Open Only Mode.
If the button of the remote control or intercom gate release is pressed while the gate is
closing, the gate will immediately reopen. The gate cannot be stopped in a midway
position and will therefore always close. If the button is pressed while the gate is in the
open position, the Autoclose timer (page 52) will be reset.
page 50
We highly recommend that a pair of Safety Beams are installed across the gate
entrance and connected to the Closing Safety Beam input on the
D2 Turbo if you select Open Only Mode. This will prevent the gate from closing
on people, pets or vehicles (page 50).
PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page 56) can be used with Open Only Mode.
20.1.2.3. Reversing Mode
Reversing Mode offers slightly more security than Standard Mode as it allows you to close
your gate quickly by pressing, for instance, your remote control just as you drive through
the gate to prevent children or pets running out - or anybody getting in behind you.
When pressing the button of the remote control or the gate pushbutton on the intercom,
your gate will be set in motion. If you press the button again, the gate will move in the
opposite direction. So, if the gate is opening and you press the button, the gate will stop
and immediately start to close (and vice versa).
Autoclose (page 51) and PIRAC (Beam Autoclose) (page56) can be used with
Reversing Mode.
To configure any of the operating modes please refer to the section, ‘Customising the
Features and Functions’ on page 60.
21.1.3. Automatic closing (Autoclose Mode)
The D2 Turbo/D2 Turbo Low-Voltage has the facility to automatically close the gate
after it has opened (Autoclose Mode). The time that the gate stays open is by default
fifteen seconds, but this time period can be set to be five, ten, fifteen, thirty, or forty-five
seconds.
As described in the previous section, Autoclose Mode is selectable with Standard Mode
(page 50) and Reversing Mode (page 51) - by default the function is Off.
However, Autoclose is automatically enabled in Open Only Mode.
We highly recommended that a Safety Beam is installed across the gate
entrance and connected to the Closing Safety Beam input on the D2 Turbo, if
you select Autoclose in order to prevent the gate from closing on people, pets
or vehicles.
page 51
21.1.3.1. Autoclose Override
Automatic closing can be overridden in
Standard and Reversing Modes by pressing
and holding the button of the remote control
or intercom gate release for no less than
three seconds.
The gate response will be to start opening
and then to stop as soon as the Autoclose
Override feature is activated. On releasing
the button, the gate will continue opening
until fully open.
Press and hold remote
control pushbutton;
gate will start to open
Your gate will stay open until you use the
remote control or intercom gate release to
close the gate.
The D2 Turbo will then revert to normal
Autoclose operation.
Gate stops to indicate
that Autoclose Override
has been engaged
The Autoclose function cannot be
overridden in Only Open Mode.
To enable/disable the Autoclose function
and/or change the Autoclose time, please
refer to the section, 'Customising the
Features and Functions' on page 60.
Release remote control pushbutton;
gate will continue to open
fully and stay open
FIGURE 75.
21.1.4. Pedestrian Opening
The Pedestrian Opening input opens the
gate just wide enough for a pedestrian to
pass through the opening. A second button
on your remote control can be used to
operate the Pedestrian Opening function.
You can also connect a keyswitch or keypad
mounted adjacent the gate entrance to
operate this function.
FIGURE 76.
page 52
There is a default two second delay before
the gate opens. This is to warn the
pedestrian that the gate is about to move.
FIGURE 77.
It will also give the person enough time to move their hand away if they are reaching
through the gate to operate a keyswitch or a keypad .
If the Courtesy Light (page 58) is connected to the D2 Turbo control card, it will flash
indicating that the gate will open approximately one metre.
The gate will close after a default time of five seconds.
The gate can be kept open by keeping a trigger on the input (keeping your key in the
keyswitch, for example) – once removed the gate will close after the default but
adjustable five seconds.
If a Closing Safety Beam (page 54) is fitted and the beam is broken while the gate is
closing, the gate will stop and open to the Pedestrian Opening position. The gate will
remain open while the beam is broken and the five second (fixed) Autoclose Delay will
only commence once the beam has been cleared.
For safety reasons it is recommended that all Pedestrian Keyswitches and
keypads are installed on the opposite end of the gate to where the operator is
installed
21.1.5. Safety Beam(s) (optional, but recommended)
It is always recommended to connect additional safety mechanisms to the
D2 Turbo/D2 Turbo Low-Voltage instead of relying only on the inherent anti-crushing
protection, referred to above. The typical device is an infrared Safety Beam which can
detect the presence of any vehicle, person or pet that breaks the beam and
communicates back to the D2 Turbo that something is in the path of the gate.
Another option is an Inductive Loop Detector, which is mounted in the ground, adjacent
to the gate, which is very effective at detecting vehicles or the like, but not persons or
pets.
page 53
21.1.5.1. Closing Safety Beams
Closing Safety Beams provide additional
protection against your gate closing on
people or vehicles.
If the beam is broken while the gate is
opening, the gate will continue to open.
If the gate is open, the gate cannot be
closed if the beam is broken, and if the gate
is closing when the beam is broken, it will
stop and re-open.
FIGURE 78.
If you select the Autoclose (page 51) feature, the gate will remain open if the beam is
broken and it will only close after the set Autoclose time has expired when the beam has
been cleared.
Please contact Centurion Systems for more information on suitable protection devices.
21.1.5.2. Opening Safety Beams
These beams prevent your gate from
opening if an object, person or pet is in the
way.
If the beam is broken while the gate is
closed, the gate will not open. If the gate is
opening and the beams are broken, it will
stop then close. If the gate is closing while
the beams are broken, it will continue to
close.
Gate closed - gate cannot open
Gate opening - gate stops and re-closes
Gate closing - gate continues closing
FIGURE 79.
page 54
21.1.6. Holiday Lockout Mode
This feature completely immobilises the operator and deactivates all inputs so nobody
can get into your property while you are away.
One of the buttons on your remote control can be used to switch the Holiday Lockout
function On and Off, as well as a latching keyswitch or keypad mounted adjacent the gate
entrance, accessible from the outside of the property.
When Holiday Lockout is enabled, any of the
access control devices that are connected to
the D2 Turbo will be rendered inactive. Not
even tampering with the keyswitch or
keypad on the outside of the property will
open the gate – this is particularly useful if
you intend leaving your property unattended
for extended periods of time.
FIGURE 80.
If Holiday Lockout is enabled while the gate is moving or in the open position, it will only
activate once the gate is back in the closed position.
If somebody tries to open the gate via a valid remote control, keypad code, etc. and
Holiday Lockout is enabled, the onboard buzzer will emit one beep periodically for 30
seconds to confirm that the gate has been disabled using this feature. Only the input
device that invoked Holiday Lockout will be capable of disabling it, and returning the
controller to normal operation.
To enable/disable the Holiday Lockout Mode feature, please refer to the section,
'Customising the Features and Functions' on page 60.
21.1.7. Positive Close Mode
Positive Close Mode is intended for applications where the gate must close fully against
the gate end post for security reasons – such as ensuring proper contact of a switch on
the gate that feeds power to an electric fence.
This feature operates only during the last few millimetres when the gate closes.
It is recommended that a rubber strip be fixed to the front edge of the gate to
reduce the noise when the gate closes against the end post.
To enable / disable the Positive Close Mode feature, please refer to the section,
'Customising the Features and Functions' on page 60.
page 55
21.1.8 . Speed Profiles
The D2 Turbo can be set to run on either a High Speed Mode (default) which is
approximately 24 metres per minute, or a Low Speed Mode which is approximately 16
metres per minute.
High speeds offer a greater level of convenience and security, while slower speeds ensure
increased levels of safety at the gate.
To change the Speed Profile, please refer to the section, 'Customising the Features and
Functions' on page 60.
21.1.9. Anti-crushing Sensitivity
The D2 Turbo incorporates a sensitive electronic anti-crushing technology that responds
in the event that a person or vehicle obstructs your gate.
Using this technology, the typical response
for an opening gate is to immediately stop
and retract a short distance, while a closing
gate will stop and fully reopen.
Collision Sensing can be set to either High
Sensitivity or Low Sensitivity. Generally High
Sensitivity should be used, but in instances
where the gate runs very poorly, for
example if the gate’s rail is damaged, Low
Sensitivity can be selected.
FIGURE 81.
21.1.10. Collision Count
A counter monitors the number of collisions that the gate experiences before it fully
closes. If the number exceeds the default value of four, the gate will stop. The Status LED
(page 59) will flash four times every second until a remote control or intercom gate
release pushbutton is pressed.
Please refer to Gate Status Indication (page 59) for more information on this diagnostic
device.
21.1.11. PIRAC – (Beam Autoclose Mode) - optional
PIRAC Mode (Passive Infrared Autoclose) can only be used if a Closing Safety
Beam (page 54) is fitted.
This mode can be used in conjunction with any of the Operating Modes, Standard, Open
Only and Reversing Modes.
page 56
Gate

With PIRAC Mode enabled, your gate will
close as soon as you have driven through
and passed the Safety Beams – giving
intruders no time to follow behind you.

If Autoclose is enabled and the gate has
been opened but nothing moves through the
Closing Safety Beam, the gate will stay fully
open for the duration of the Autoclose timer
before closing. However, if something passes
through the Closing Beam the gate will close
immediately.

FIGURE 83.
If something crosses the beam while the
gate is opening, the gate will continue to

21.1.12. Courtesy (Pillar) Light Timer (optional feature)
Courtesy (Pillar) Lights can be connected
through the D2 Turbo/D2 Turbo
Low-Voltage controller if an adequate
power supply is available at the gate.
The lights will switch on every time the gate
is given a signal to operate (the trigger
could be a remote control button, or the
gate pushbutton on an intercom).
The lights will stay on for a fixed period of
two minutes, then automatically turn off.
FIGURE 85.
The purpose is to bathe your entrance with light when you open the gates and increase
your security as you drive into your property – it also saves electricity as the lights only
come on when you use the gate motor.
Using the Pedestrian Opening feature will cause the Courtesy (Pillar) Lights to flash three
times before the gate opens.
The cabling that supplies the input voltage to the D2 Turbo must be suitably
sized to carry the additional load of the Courtesy (Pillar) Lights.
2.1.12.1. Courtesy (Pillar) Lights act as Warning Light
These modes replace the standard Courtesy Light feature.
21.1.12.1A. Pre-flashing Modes
Depending on your requirements or local
regulations, your gate automation system
can provide for two different safety Preflashing Modes which will activate the gate’s
Pillar Lights if fitted and connected to
the D2 Turbo controller.
21.1.12.1B. Pre-flashing Mode A
With Pre-flashing Mode A activated, the
Pillar Light Relay will only activate during
gate movement.
FIGURE 86.
page 58
21.1.12.1C. Pre-flashing Mode C
With Pre-flashing Mode C activated, the Pillar Light Relay will activate for two seconds
before gate movement occurs, as well as during gate movement.
This means that gate movement will be delayed for a period of two seconds after a
trigger signal has been received.
To change the Courtesy (Pillar) to one of the Pre-flashing Modes, please refer to
the section, 'Customising the Features and Functions' on page 60.
21.1.13. External Gate Status Indication LED
An LED (Light Emitting Diode) mounted on
your intercom allows you to view the
position of your gate and the condition of
the battery and power supply from the
safety of your home. The different signals of
the LED are described below:
FIGURE 87.
Off
Gate is closed
On
Gate is partially or fully open
Continuous slow flash
Gate is opening
Continuous fast flash
Two flashes every two seconds
Three flashes every two seconds
Gate is closing
No mains present
Battery voltage is low
TABLE 3.
If you choose not to fit a Gate Status Indicator, the Status LED on the controller
can also be used for diagnostics.
21.1.14. Battery-low Protection
The controller has circuitry that monitors the state of the battery. During a power failure,
energy is drawn from the battery but not replaced. To protect the battery from being
quickly damaged, the protection circuitry prevents the motor from being run off the
battery when the battery voltage drops below 10.6V.
Indication that the battery-low protection has been triggered is provided by the onboard
buzzer and status LED on the controller (and intercom if so equipped and connected to
the controller). The LED will flash three times every two seconds, as will the buzzer beep
three times every two seconds.
The gate system will also shut off until such time as the battery has recharged to an
acceptable level. Consult your gate automation specialist or Centurion Systems if you
discover that your Battery-low Protection signal continues to re-occur.

22. Customising the Features and Functions
‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’. ~ Leonardo Da Vinci
The D2 Turbo and D2 Turbo Low-Voltage controllers make ordinarily complex settings
as quick and easy as possible. Using the Function and Setting Dials, the Select/Toggle
pushbutton , and the bi-colour (red and green) Status LED you can set up the many
features and functions in a flash.
Function
Dial
Please always adjust the Function Dial first.
FIGURE 88.
Setting
Dial
Set this to the desired function, and then
move the Setting Dial to the preferred
setting.
FIGURE 89.
If a setting is for a single fixed value, for
example, 15 second Autoclose time, then
the Select pushbutton acts as a select for
that single choice.
However, if the setting has two options, for
example On/Off or Hi/Lo, then the
pushbutton acts as a toggle between the
two preferences.
FIGURE 90.
page 60
When using the Select pushbutton to toggle
between preferences the status LED will
light up as green to indicate On or High; or
alternatively red to indicate Off or Low.
FIGURE 91.
The Function Dial must always be
returned to the Run position
(rotated fully counter-clockwise)
after you have finished setting up
any of the features, modes or
profiles. This ensures that it will be
ready for use.
FIGURE 92.
22.1. Remote control administration
The D2 Turbo controllers incorporate an
onboard multichannel receiver compatible
with code-hopping technology.
The receiver will allow any combination of
the different inputs - Trigger (Gate fully
open), Pedestrian, Holiday Lockout, etc.
to be operated from a single multi-button
remote control.
FIGURE 93.
page 61
You can also artificially increase the number
of buttons by using a two-button
combination. One of the buttons is used as a
Shift button to allow the other buttons to be
used again in combination with this button.
Press and hold the allocated Shift button
and then press one of the other buttons to
create a new button. The Shift button
cannot be used as a button on its own - it
must always be used in combination with
another button.
Use of the Shift button principle allows a
three-button transmitter to gain an extra
button and operate four functions and a
four-button transmitter gains two extra
buttons and can operate six functions.
This is quite handy if you’d like to control
additional devices from a single multi-button

However, it’s important to note that the other devices cannot be activated with the new
Shift button, only the D2 Turbo (and other operators that are equipped with an onboard
receiver) is able to recognise the Shift button signals.
Using the shift key principle also prevents you from enabling functions like Holiday
Lockout Mode by accident. This is because you have to use both hands to press the
two-button combination.
At any stage remote controls can be selectively added or deleted within the system.
To selectively delete a remote control, the remote control must be available.
Please refer to the section, 'Deleting Specific Remote Controls' on page 64.

23. Description of Terminal Functions
Motor
Motor output – connects to the Blue or Black motor wire.
Motor
Motor output – connects to the Orange or Red motor wire.
Batt +
Positive battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as + or red (right-hand
battery)
Batt -
Negative battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as - or black (right-hand
battery)
COM
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc. have their return
path to one of the COM terminals.
PED
Pedestrian Opening input. (A normally-open potential-free input).
Momentarily connecting this input to COM will cause the gate to open to
the Pedestrian open position. For more information refer to the Pedestrian
feature.
TRG
Trigger input. (A normally-open potential-free input) Momentarily
connecting this input to COM will cause the gate to open or close
depending on the operating mode selected. For more information see the
Autoclose feature and Modes of Operation.
LCK/STP
Holiday Lockout or gate Stop input. (A normally-closed potential-free
input). For as long as a connection between this input and COM is
maintained the controller will behave normally. But, when this connection
to COM is broken all inputs are inhibited and all triggers except the one
that invoked the feature will be ignored, and if the gate is moving it will
stop. As the name implies, this feature is mostly used in situations where
the premises will be left uninhabited for a period of time, for example when
the residents go away on holiday, and electronically locks the entire system
for added security. While this is usually a remote control button, other
typical devices include a pushbutton, keypad, keyswitch and any number of
access control devices.
If this input is enabled while the gate is moving or in the
open position, it will only activate and inhibit operation of all
the inputs when the gate is back in the closed position
If the LCK function is not required a link must be fitted
between LCK and COM*(refer to note on page 78)
page 77
Safe OPN
OPENING edge safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input).
As long as a connection between this input and COM is maintained the
controller will behave normally. When this connection is broken it will
prevent the gate from opening if it is stationary, and will stop and reverse
the gate if it is opening. This input has no effect if the gate is closing.
If the Safe OPE and reverse functions are not required a link
must be fitted between safe OPE and COM for the controller to
operate normally. )
When setting up the controller for the first time or after a full reset
back to factory defaults has been performed, the system will
electronically override the Safety Inputs and allow the system to
function without the links. However, if safeties are connected to either
or both inputs, thereafter there must be a normally-closed circuit
maintained for the system to operate correctly. I.e. if beams are fitted
and then removed, the circuit which is affected must be replaced with
a wire link to create the normally-closed circuit.
Safe CLS
CLOSING edge safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input). As
long as a connection between this input and COM is maintained the
controller will behave normally. When this connection is broken it will
prevent the gate from closing if it is stationary, and will stop and reverse
the gate if it is closing. This input has no effect if the gate is opening.
If the Saf CLS function is not required a link must be fitted
between Safe CLS and COM for the controller to operate
normally. )
When setting up the controller for the first time or after a full reset
back to factory defaults has been performed, the system will
electronically override the Safety Inputs and allow the system to
function without the links. However, if safeties are connected to either
or both inputs, thereafter there must be a normally-closed circuit
maintained for the system to operate correctly. I.e. if beams are fitted
and then removed, the circuit which is affected must be replaced with
a wire link to create the normally-closed circuit.
LED
Aux 12V
Safe
Common
External gate status indicator. (A low-current output signal.)
An output terminal which provides a low-drive (approx. 4,5V DC, 20mA)
to an LED which can be used to indicate the gate status remotely.
If more than three LEDs are required it is necessary to fit the
CP78 MULTI-LED driver card.
Auxiliary power connection. Provides a +12V DC supply for auxiliary
equipment such as a radio receiver, Safety Beam(s) etc. It is linked
directly to the battery positive via a 3A resettable fuse.
Used for switching the power supply to the Safety Beam(s). If automatic
beam testing is required, the negative power supply connection of the
beam transmitters and receivers must be wired to this point.
When setting up the controller for the first time or after a full reset back to
factory default has been performed, the system will electronically override the
Safety Inputs and allow the system to function without the links. However, if
safeties are connected to either or both inputs thereafter, there must be a
normally-closed circuit maintained for the system to operate correctly. I.e. if
beams are fitted and then removed, the circuit which is affected must be
replaced with a wire link to create the normally-closed circuit.

24. Diagnostics
Diagnostic LEDs
The D2 Turbo controller has a series of diagnostic LEDs which indicate the state of the
inputs. Normally-open inputs are indicated by a RED LED, and normally-closed inputs by
a GREEN LED. An illuminated RED LED indicates that the signal is present (e.g. intercom
button pressed), while an illuminated GREEN LED indicates that the signal is absent (e.g.
infrared Safety Beam not broken).
Safety OPN: Green
On when the opening beam is not activated
Safety CLS: Green

stops
 Check the battery condition with Procedure A: Low battery
voltage condition, especially if the Status Light flashes three
times
 Check for false collisions with Procedure B: False Collision
Detection, later in this section
 Intermittent IRBC/IRBO signals. Check that the voltage
applied to the beams is appropriate
 False trigger. Intermittent short due to possible moisture on

Gate starts closing,
then stops and re-opens
 Besides a faulty controller, which will be considered last, the
only factor that could cause this symptom is a missing
origin or faulty DOSS module
Gate overrides
its limits
 However, initially before the gate overrides its limits, if the
origin is not detected, the controller will automatically start
beeping when the gate is running, but it will allow normal
operation.
Check for the following:
 Check that the origin marker is correctly positioned as
shown on page 34
 Check that the DOSS sensor harness is properly plugged
into the magnetic switch at one end and the controller at
the other
page 80
Problem
Gate overrides its
limits
Unreliable Autoclose
Possible faults
 Carefully check the condition of the harness.
Look out for any bad crimp joints between the wires and the
connectors at both ends of the harness
 Check that the magnetic switch is mechanically switching.
In manual mode, slide the gate backwards and forwards so
that the magnet passes the switch each time. Listen out for
a distinctive click as the switch operates
 Check that the respective origin sensor is securely clipped
into the housing
 Check that the origin magnet is correctly positioned as
shown on page 35
 If the problem is not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
 Latching receiver on TRG would activate the Autoclose

 Intermittent fault on PED (Pedestrian) input. Check wiring,
and key switch/keypad operation
 Check Procedure B:False Collision Detection
 If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might
be faulty
Gate opens to
Pedestrian and
stays open
 There is a continuous PED signal, the PED light will be on
continuously. (The PED light and signal must turn on
momentarily for the gate to close after a pedestrian signal.)
If an external receiver is operating the PED input, check for
an accidentally latching contact, or a faulty keyswitch/
keypad
 If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might
be faulty
The fault is with the receiver.
 Check that remotes are correctly learned to the receiver.
Gate opens from the
intercom, but not via

page 81
Procedure A - Low-battery voltage condition
Status light flashes three times
If the battery voltage is less than 10.5V, the motor will not operate at all. For any other
voltage, the battery could still be the cause of the problem. Check that the battery is
being properly charged.
 Check that the mains power is turned ON (measure 90V - 240V AC on the mains
connector for the D2 Turbo, or 10V - 20V AC/10V - 28V DC for the D2 Turbo LowVoltage)
 Check the condition of the battery leads, terminals and connectors. Look for and
correct all loose connections and signs of corrosion
 The battery might be discharged. Measure the battery voltage with the charger
connected; if the voltage is below 12.5V then the battery is discharged. The number of
opening cycles per hour may be excessive, thus discharging the battery. Charge the
battery if required
 The onboard charger might be faulty. Disconnect the battery, and measure the voltage
on the battery leads.
It must be between 13.6V and 13.8V. If not replace the controller
 Battery may be old, and might have to be replaced. If in doubt test as follows:
 Check that the battery is charged by ensuring that the battery voltage is above
13.5V with the onboard charger connected. (If the battery is in a good condition it
would probably pass the test without being fully charged)
 Isolate the mains from the controller
 Remove the DC motor leads from the DC Controller
 Apply the DC motor leads directly to the battery, while measuring the battery
voltage
First make sure that the moving gate will not pose any danger.
 If the gate does not move, the battery or motor could be faulty
 If the battery voltage remains unchanged, then the motor is faulty and must be
serviced. If the battery voltage drops to below 11.2V then the battery must be
replaced
 Before replacing the battery, measure the charging voltage on the battery.
Leads with the battery disconnected. It must be between 13.6V and 13.8V.
If not, replace the charger.
page 82
Procedure B - False collision detection
Status light flashes four times to indicate that number of collisions have exceeded the
Collision Counter feature value.
With the operator in Manual Mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
 Check for badly running gate, or something physically obstructing the gate.
Activate the manual override and manually move the gate to check for ease of
operation
 Rack pressing down onto pinion
 Bad rack joints
 Seized or badly running wheels
 Top guide-rollers restricting the gate
 Dirt on rail
 Physical damage to the rail
 Wheel catching side of pinion
 Gate hitting endstop
 Check the DC motor wires for loose connections
 Check that the sensor wire harness is securely plugged into controller
 If the problem is not solved replace the motor module and main controller
Red/Black/Orange Wire = Origin Switch, and
Red/Black/Purple Wire = DOSS Sensor.

26. Manual Operation
26.1. Disengage the gearbox/drive
To manually override the operator you will need to:
1. Open the camlock cover, insert the
camlock key and rotate it 90° clockwise
(the cover can also be removed at this
stage if so desired). This will allow for
the rotation of the Manual Release
thumbwheel.
FIGURE 138.
By turning the Manual Release
thumbwheel 90° counter-clockwise until
it clicks, the motor pinion will be put into
‘Manual Mode’.
FIGURE 139.
26.2. Re-engage
gearbox/drive
To re-engage the drive mechanism of the
operator you will need to:
1. Turn the Manual Release thumbwheel
90° clockwise until it clicks.
2. Once you have re-engaged the drive
mechanism don’t forget to lock the
camlock by inserting the key and
rotating it 90° counter-clockwise – this
will help prevent unauthorised tampering
with the operator.
FIGURE 140.
3. By locking the camlock, the Manual Release thumbwheel cannot be moved from
‘locked’ to ‘unlocked’ and vice versa.
page 84
27. Additional Features
27.1. Battery saver
In the event of a battery-low shutdown, only
the motor will stop drawing current – the
controller, infrared beams and any other
peripheral device will continue to flatten the
battery; however, at a much slower rate.
An optional low cut-out switch (product code
CP107) totally disconnects the battery and
protects it from being fully discharged and
potentially damaged.
Consult your gate automation specialist for
further details.
FIGURE 141.
27.2 Solar power supply
A solar panel can be used to charge the
battery instead of the conventional charging
circuit. A 20W panel will provide enough
power for 20 daily operations of an average
gate (less if 12V DC security lights are
fitted).
You will need to fit a deep-cycle lowmaintenance battery (minimum 35Ah) in
order to provide sufficient backup capacity
during days of poor weather.
These are typical values for Southern Africa.
Contact your gate automation specialist for
details on what solar panel to select in your
area.
FIGURE 142.
The mains fail buzzer can be silenced on the
D2 Turbo Low-Voltage by inserting a wire
link between Aux 12V and power input
terminal.
FIGURE 143.
page 85
28. Basic Maintenance
CENTURION operators are designed to be maintenance-free. However, there are some
basic checks that should be carried out regularly (every six months). These checks will
increase the long-term reliability of the system and prevent erratic operation of your
gate.
ISOLATE MAINS SUPPLY TO SYSTEM BEFORE CLEANING OR WORKING
ON THE EQUIPMENT.
General
Even if the user has used a gate operator before, it does not mean that he knows how to
SAFELY operate it. Make sure that the user fully understands the following safety
requirements before finally handing over the site.
Show the user how to do the following:
 Keep the track clear of stones, dirt and
obstructions
 Ensure that all rollers run freely
 Put the operator into Manual Mode and
check that the gate runs freely on its rail
and does not catch or foul against the
walls or pillars

30. Installation Handover
Once the installation has been successfully completed and tested, it is important for the
installer to explain the operation and safety requirements of the system.
NEVER ASSUME THE USER KNOWS HOW TO SAFELY OPERATE AN
AUTOMATED GATE!

SAFELY operate it. Make sure that the user fully understands the following safety
requirements before finally handing over the site.

demonstration)
 How the obstruction detection and all other safety features work. (Show them how
by demonstration)
 All the features and benefits of the operator, i.e. Safety Beams, etc.
 All the safety considerations associated with operating an automated gate.

automated system and must be made aware of this responsibility
Do not activate the gate operator unless you can see it and
can determine that its area of travel is clear of people, pets,
or other obstructions
