2. General Description
The D10 is a heavy duty sliding gate operator designed to open and close industrial sliding
gates weighing up to 1000Kg.
The D10 Turbo is perfectly suited for sites with lighter gates requiring a high number of
operations per day, and can reach almost double the speed of the standard D10. However, it
is not recommended for gates weighing more than 240kg, as the inertia generated by
heavier loads might prove detrimental to the gearbox at such high speeds.
A die cast aluminium gearbox, coupled to a powerful 24V DC motor and switch-mode
charger, make the D10/D10 Turbo the automatic choice for townhouse complexes and office
parks. Gate travel limits are managed by an opto-electronic system, comprising a
gate-mounted origin magnet and an internal rotary encoder. This system yields precise and
repeatable control over gate position. The gearbox of the D10 Turbo utilises a “true” or “full
involute” gear instead of a helical gear, which means that there is a larger contact area with
the worm shaft, ensuring much greater load bearing capabilities. The standard D10 uses a
34 tooth internal gear and a 17 tooth output pinion, whereas the D10 Turbo uses a 22 tooth
internal gear and a 20 tooth output pinion.
Advanced features of the D10/D10 Turbo logic controller include:
 Interactive graphical user interface via a backlit LCD display

Automated setup of gate endpoints (limits)

Fail-safe collision detection and auto reverse (adjustable sensitivity)

Smooth, adjustable start/stop (ramp-up/ramp-down)


Multiple pre-flashing modes

Independently adjustable motor speed in both opening and closing directions

Onboard CENTURION rolling code (KeeloqTM encryption) radio receiver with full channel
mapping capability (limited to 500 buttons)

Onboard ChronoGuard (patent pending) timer for timed activation of physical inputs or
outputs and time-barring of physical inputs or outputs and remote controls
Lightning Protection
The electronic controller utilises the same proven surge protection philosophy that is used in
all CENTURION products. While this does not guarantee that the unit will not be damaged in
the event of a lightning strike or power surge, it greatly reduces the likelihood of such
damage occurring. The earth return for the surge protection is provided via the mains power
supply earth.
page 6
In order to ensure that the surge protection is effective, it is essential that the unit
is properly earthed.
Theft Protection
While care has been taken in the design of the D10/D10 Turbo to prevent unauthorized
removal (theft) of the unit, an optional steel theft-resistant cage is also available for added
peace of mind.

7. Preparation of Site
General considerations for the installation
1. Always recommend the fitment of additional safety equipment such as safety edges
and safety beams, for additional protection against entrapment or other mechanical
risks
2. Since the D10 Turbo operates at exceptionally high speeds, it is mandatory to install
the following additional safety equipment in order to ensure the safest possible
installation:
a) Opening safety beams which will prevent the gate from moving should anyone be
in the path of the gate while OPENING. This provides an effective means of
safeguarding against dragging.
b) Closing safety beams which will prevent the gate from moving should anyone be
in the path of the gate while CLOSING. This is important to prevent being
crushed by the gate while in motion.
c) Passive Sensitive Edge to help absorb the kinetic energy of the gate in the event
of a collision, and provides additional time for the inherent electronic anti-crushing
technology of the operator to react.
3. The IRBOC option must be invoked so that the gate will immediately reverse
direction, in the event of a collision, regardless of whether it is in the opening or
closing cycle
4. Safety beams are installed on either side of the driveway, as shown in Figure 3
5. Sensitive edges are typically installed on all shearing edges of the gate, as shown in
Figure 3
Infrared
Passive
sensitive
edge

FIGURE 3. INFRARED BEAMS AND PASSIVE SENSITIVE EDGE
6. Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation
7. Check that enough space is available for the gate operator with the gate in the
required open position
8. Check for loose sandy soil if installing foundations, as the soil condition may require
a larger foundation
page 12
Install the gate operator only if:
1. It will not pose a hazard to the public
2. There is sufficient clearance to a roadway and/or public thoroughfares
3. The installation will meet all municipal and/or local authority requirements once
completed
4. The gate mass, length and application is within the operator specifications
5. The gate is in good working order, meaning:
a) That it moves freely
b) Does not move on its own if left in any position
c) It can be installed to have sufficient clearance between moving parts when
opening and closing to reduce the risk of personal injury and entrapment
6. Pushbuttons or keyswitches, when required, can be positioned so that the gate is in
line of sight of the operator
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
Endstop
Endstop

FIGURE 4. FITTING ENDSTOPS
WARNING!
Endstops are mandatory and must be fitted to prevent death
or accidental injury should the gate overrun its limits
page 13
Guide-rollers and anti-lift brackets
1. Guide-rollers must ensure that the gate is held vertically
2. For improved safety, fit additional support post to prevent gate from falling over if
guide-rollers fail
3. To prevent unauthorised access fit anti-lift brackets as shown
4. 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
GAP<5mm GAP<5mm

Starting and running forces
1. 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
2. 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
3. Where possible determine the gate mass
4. The CENTURION warranty will be void if the pull force and or gate mass, exceed the
operator specification as below:
D10
 Starting force - 40kgf
 Running (rated) force - 30kgf
 Maximum gate mass - 1000kg

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
Consult manufacturer of loop detector for specific details
page 16
9. Lubrication
Do not attempt to run the operator without
first filling the gearbox with lubricant

The internal gearset of the D10/D10 Turbo is lubricated by means of an oil bath

In order to prevent possible leakage during shipping, the unit is shipped with no oil
inside the gearbox. A bottle containing 80ml of a special synthetic oil is included with
the product, and this must be introduced before operating the product. (Product
code: OIL80ML0X0/H)
It is more convenient to introduce oil before bolting the unit down, as shown in
Figure 9.
The D10/D10 Turbo does not require routine oil changes. However in the event
of the unit losing oil due to stripping down or mechanical damage, the correct
replacement oil is Castrol SAF X0 75W-90 synthetic final drive lubricant. If the
gearbox is bolted down in the horizontal position during filling, the correct level
is reached when oil begins to spill from the filler hole.
FIGURE 8. LUBRICATION
Step 1: Remove dipstick from gearbox
Step 2: Cut the tip off the nozzle which will allow for the oil to pass through the
nozzle;unscrew the oil bottle cap; remove the seal from beneath the oil
bottle cap;replace the oil bottle cap onto the bottle and, attach the
extension tube to the nozzle
Step 3: Fill the gearbox with the oil provided
Please ensure that you only use the following oil as qualified by CENTURION:
Castrol SAF-XO 75w-90 Synthetic Final Drive Lubricant.
CENTURION re-order code OIL80ML0X0/H.

10. Operator Installation
Locate operator position
1.
To ensure operator does not protrude into driveway, install base plate at least flush
with the driveway entrance
2.
Determine a suitable position and vertical height for the operator by considering
Figures 9 and 10.
3.
It is typical to mount the rack above the pinion as shown in Figures 9A and 10A for
each type of rack considered. However, in each case, Figures 8B and 9B shows the
rack mounted underneath.
If there is space to mount the rack underneath without fouling the ground as
the gate moves, the following are the pros and cons:
Pros
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

Cons
Rack teeth face up vertically potentially collecting dirt
 Custom bracket

With careful selection of the rack configuration, and operator vertical height,
mounting of the rack could in some cases be greatly simplified.

21. Controller Features
Menu 2 - Safety (collision force)
1. Collision force
If the gate is obstructed, the internal collision circuitry will activate. The
response of the system to a collision will vary, depending on the profile
(operating standard, e.g. ZA,) selected. Responses can vary from the gate
stopping, to the gate reversing. The collision force can be set from minimum to
maximum in five discrete steps.
A sixth step will disable collision sensing entirely, allowing maximum force to
be achieved. Under this condition, the motor will continue running until it
stalls, at which point a collision will be detected.
This level should only be used if additional safety measures are taken.
(e.g. infrared beams, sensitive edge, etc.). Collision force can be set
independently per direction of travel.
2. Collision count
A counter monitors the number of collisions that the gate experiences before
it reaches the fully closed position. If the value exceeds the value set in the
multiple collision counter the controller shuts down until the next valid
trigger is received. As indication, the status LED will flash four times every
two seconds. The multiple collision fault indication will continue to flash
indefinitely or until a valid trigger has been received.
3. Alarm output
After the preset collision count has been reached, an alarm is activated. The
system can be configured to operate one of the following outputs provided on
the controller:
a) Onboard buzzer – emits a continuous tone
b) Pillar / Courtesy light contact (potential-free normally-open contact,
fuse protected – 5A)
c) Aux IO (this is an open collector drive, max current draw 3A, not fuse
protected)
d) Safety beam common (this is an open collector drive, max current draw
3A, not fuse protected)
e) Status LED output (operate up to three LEDs in parallel or interface with
multi-LED driver card, CP78)
4. LCK as ESTOP
Allows the Lck (Holiday Lockout) input to be configured as an emergency stop
input. When activating the emergency stop it will prevent the gate from
moving, and if it is moving, it will immediately stop.
page 40
Menu 3 - Autoclose
1.
Autoclose status
When turned on, the Autoclose feature has the function of automatically
closing the gate after a preset autoclose time. The Autoclose feature is
automatically turned on when the controller is set for Condiminium Mode
of operation.
2.
Autoclose time
The Autoclose time can be set anywhere from 1 to 255 seconds.
3.
Autoclose Override
It is possible for the user to temporarily turn off Autoclose when the mode
of operation is Standard or Reversing. To activate Autoclose Override,
the Trg input must be activated and maintained for a period longer than the
time set for the Autoclose Override Time.
The gate response will be to start opening on the Trg trigger, and then to
stop as soon as the Autoclose Override feature is activated. On clearing of
the Trg input, the gate will continue opening until fully open. The Autoclose
feature is now off and the gate will remain open indefinitely.
The next signal received on Trg will clear the Autoclose Override feature,
close the gate, and set the Autoclose feature back to normal.
4.
Autoclose Advanced Options
The conditions under which the gate will automatically close can be set within
the Advanced Autoclose options menu:
a) Autoclose on open - automatically close the gate if it has reached the
fully open position
b) Autoclose on partly open - automatically close the gate if it is stopped
while opening, but before reaching the fully opened position
c) Autoclose on partly closed - automatically close the gate if it is
stopped while closing, but before reaching the fully closed position
More than one advanced option can be selected
Menu 4 - Modes of Operation
It is possible to select the following Modes of Operation: Standard,
Condominium, Reversing, PLC and Deadman Control Mode (DMC). All
modes are triggered by closing a normally-open contact between the Trg input
terminal and the Com terminal.
1.
Standard Mode
When stationary, a trigger impulse on Trg will cause the gate to either open
or close. On a moving gate, a trigger impulse on Trg will stop the gate. The
next impluse on Trg will cause the gate to reverse its direction of travel, i.e.
the action is start-stop-reverse.
page 41
2.
Condominium Mode
A trigger impulse on Trg will open the gate under all conditions. If it were
closing, it will stop and reverse to open. In this Mode of Operation, the only
way to close the gate is with the Autoclose feature, which is automatically
activated when Condominium mode is selected.
3.
Reversing Mode
A trigger impulse on Trg will reverse the direction of a moving gate. If it
were closing, it will stop and immediately begin opening. If it were opening,
it will stop and immediately begin closing.
4.
PLC Mode
a) A trigger impulse on FRX (NO) will cause the gate to open. A trigger
impulse on the Trg (NO) will cause the gate to close
b) A trigger impulse on the Lck/Stp (NC) will cause the gate to stop
5.
Deadman Control Mode (DMC)
a) A permanent trigger on FRX (NO) will cause the gate to open. Removing
the trigger will cause the gate to stop
b) A permanent trigger on Trg (NO) will cause the gate to close. Removing
the trigger will cause the gate to stop
c) A permanent trigger on Lck/Stp (NC) will stop a moving gate, and
prevent a stationary gate from moving
Menu 5 - Run profile
1.
Positive Close Mode (PCM)
Setting Positive Close Mode to on will allow the gate to drive up hard to the
closed endstop without causing the collision circuitry to operate. This feature
operates only during the last few millimeters of gate travel in closing mode.
2.
PCM push force
The amount of force applied by the motor when in PCM can be set as a
percentage of full motor force.
3.
Pre-open delay
Allows a delay between a valid trigger signal being received and the gate
commencing movement in the opening direction. A warning light can be set
to activate during this delay. (Refer to pre-flash modes of the pillar light
feature, for more details).
4.
Pre-close delay
Allows a delay between a valid trigger signal being received and the gate
commencing movement in the closing direction. The delay will also occur if
the gate is set to close automatically. A warning light can be set to activate
during this delay. (Refer to pre-flash modes of the pillar light feature, for
more details).
5.
Opening speed
Sets the maximum opening speed in meters per minute. This can be set from
10 to 24 meters per minute on the D10, and 10 to 50 metres per minute on
the D10 Turbo. Selecting MAX will move gate at maximum possible speed.
page 42
6.
Closing speed
Sets the maximum closing speed in meters per minute. This can be set from
10 to 24 meters per minute on the D10, and 10 to 50 metres per minute on
the D10 Turbo. Selecting MAX will move gate at maximum possible speed.
7.
Ramp-up distance
Sets the ramp-up distance in centimetre of travel of the gate when starting.
This can be set from 10 centimetres to 10 meters in 1 centimetre steps.
8.
Ramp-down distance
Sets the ramp-down distance in centimetre of travel of the gate when
stopping. This can be set from 10 centimetre to 10 meters in 1 centimetre
steps.
9.
TRG stop distance
Sets the distance over which a moving gate will stop after a Trg input is
received. This can be set from 10 centimetres to 1 meter in 1 centimetre
steps. In D10 Turbo mode, the default ramp-down distance is extended to
provide more time for the gate to slow down
10. IRB stop distance
Sets the distance over which a moving gate will stop after an infrared
safety beam is broken. This can be set from 10 centimetres to 1 metre in 1
centimetre steps
11. Crawl distance
Sets the final crawl distance in centimetres of travel of the gate when
reaching an endpoint. This can be set from 10 centimetres to 10 metres in 1
centimetre steps
12. Torque limit
Sets the maximum torque delivered by the motor. The maximum setting is a
value of 15, while the minimum is four. This is useful in cases where limited
push force is required
Menu 6 - IR beams
1. PIRAC
The Passive-Infrared Autoclose feature allows the gate to close
automatically, as soon as a vehicle or pedestrian has passed through the
closing beam. This security feature ensures that the gate stays open for the
minimum amount of time possible.
If the Autoclose feature has been enabled, the system will react in the
following way:
a) When the gate is triggered to open and nothing moves through or
interrupts the closing beam, the gate will open fully and stay open for the
period of time determined by the Autoclose timer
b) However, if the closing beam is interrupted at any stage, while the gate is
opening or open, the gate will close immediately after the closing beam is
cleared
page 43
If the Autoclose feature has not been enabled then the gate will
remain open indefinitely. To close the gate the closing beam must be
interrupted or the trigger button must be pressed.
1.
Stop on open
If PIRAC is enabled, and a vehicle breaks the closing safety beam, the gate
will by default, continue to open. If the gate is required to stop at this point,
the stop on open function must be enabled. The stopping distance setting
then determines in centimetres how far the gate will run on after the beam
has been broken. The minimum setting is zero, which will cause the gate to
stop immediately after the closing beams have been broken. The maximum
setting is determined by the length of the gate.
2.
PIRAC override
The PIRAC feature can be temporarily disabled in the following manner:
a) With the gate in the closed or partially closed position, press and hold the
trigger button. The gate will begin to open and then stop. Continue
holding
the trigger button until the gate begins to open again
b) Release the trigger button
c) The gate is now in PIRAC override
d) To re-enable the PIRAC feature press the trigger button briefly
e) The time taken for the gate to come to a stop is equal to the Autoclose
Override time, or a minimum of two seconds if the Autoclose Override
time is off
f) The time taken for the gate to open again after it has come to a stop is
approximately three seconds
Example:
Autoclose override time set to five seconds: Total time to temporarily
disable the PIRAC feature is approximately eight seconds (5s + 3s = 8
seconds)


3.
Autoclose override time set to off: Total time to temporarily disable the
PIRAC feature is approximately three seconds
IR beam test
Automatically tests the safety beams before each gate cycle. (e.g. as
required by CE.)
In order for this feature to work, the power supply negative of beam
transmitter must be wired to the safe common terminal of the controller. The
beam test for the closing beam is automatically enabled when the D10 Turbo
option is turned on (D10 Turbo only). However, this can be disabled by the
installer at his own risk.
4.
IRBO=IRBC
Configures the opening beam to act as a closing beam while the gates are
closing.
page 44
5.
IR beam alarms
While the gate is fully closed, this feature allows the following alarms:
a) Ambush alarm
Activates an alarm if either
the opening or closing beams
have been continuously
interrupted for a predefined
time. The alarm will remain
activated while the beams
are interrupted.
For example, if a would-be
intruder covers the beams so
that when the gate is
opened, the gate will stay
open, the system will detect
this beam override taking
place and set off an alarm.

The alarm remains activated
while the beams are broken,
and for a period of 30
seconds thereafter. This time
is fixed.
If this alarm is used, it is
recommended that TWO
parallel closing beams are
used to reduce the chance
of false triggering.

page 45
Menu 7 - Pedestrian opening
This feature is associated with the Ped input on the controller. When activating
this input, the system will open the gate to the pedestrian open position, and
then automatically close after the Pedestrian Autoclose time lapses. If the Ped
connection to Com is maintained, then the gate will remain open, and when the
connection is broken, it will close after the Pedestrian Autoclose time has
expired.
The time taken for the gate to open to pedestrian is dependent on the pedestrian
pre-open delay and the time required for the gate to close from the pedestrian
position is dependent on the pedestrian pre-close delay.
1.
Pedestrian open position
Sets the maximum opening of the pedestrian gate in metres, in one
centimetre steps.
2.
Pedestrian Autoclose time
Sets the Autoclose time in seconds after a Pedestrian Opening. This time can
be set from zero seconds to four minutes in one second steps.
3.
Pedestrian pre-open delay
Sets the time delay between the pedestrian input being activated, and the
gate actually opening. This enhances safety in cases where the pedestrian
has to reach through the gate in order to activate the pedestrian input. A
warning light* would typically be active during this delay. This delay can be
set from zero seconds to four minutes in one second steps.
4.
Pedestrian pre-close delay
Sets the time delay between the Pedestrian Autoclose timer expiring, and
the gate actually closing. A warning light* would typically be active during
this delay. This delay can be set from zero seconds to four minutes in one
second steps.
* The warning light is any light wired to the courtesy (pillar) light
contacts, as described in Menu 8, which follows.
Menu 8 - Courtesy (pillar) light
This feature is associated with the light connections on the controller. Refer to
Section 16 of the manual for details on how to connect a pillar or security light to
the controller.
The pillar light circuit has multiple functions:
1. It operates as a courtesy light and switches on for a selectable time period
every time the gate is activated
2.
The courtesy light can also be turned on for the same time period by
momentarily connecting the Aux terminal to the Com terminal via a
pushbutton
3.
The courtesy light can also be turned on permanently by connecting the Aux
terminal to the Com terminal via a pushbutton, for three seconds.
page 46
A short pulse thereafter will switch the lights off. The status LED will flash
once every two seconds to indicate that the courtesy light is on permanently.
The abovementioned facility can also be achieved via a remote learned to the
system and mapped to the courtesy light function from within the remotes
menu
The gate will not open when using the Aux trigger input.
4.
5.
When the Ped input is triggered, the courtesy light flashes for an adjustable
(1 to 255 seconds) pre-flash time, before the pedestrian gate opens
The courtesy light can also be controlled via the Auto-activations function,
or the light time-bar function as described in the Chronoguard (Time-periods)
menu - Menu 9
6.
Courtesy light time
The time that the courtesy light will remain activated can be set from four
seconds to ten hours in one second increments.
7.
Light profile
The courtesy light can be selected to operate according to one of the
following:
a) Courtesy light as explained earlier
b) Pre-flashing mode
If pre-flashing Mode A, B or C is selected, the behaviour of the courtesy
light will be as follows:
 Mode A will turn on the courtesy light only while the gate is moving
 Mode B will flash the courtesy light during the pre-opening and preclosing delays, as well as while the gate is moving
 Mode C will turn on the courtesy light during the pre-opening and preclosing delays, as well as while the gate is moving
 In these pre-flashing modes, the timed courtesy light functionality is not
available
8.
In these preflight modes, the timed courtesy light functionality is not
available
Menu 9 - ChronoGuard (Time-periods)
1.
ChronoGuard™ (patent pending) is a powerful feature which has been added
to the new generation CENTURION controllers. An integral Real Time Clock
(RTC) is used to provide time-based functionality, including the automatic
activation or time-barring of specific controller inputs, and the time-barring of
specified remote control buttons used together with the onboard NOVA rolling
TM
code (Keeloq encryption) receiver.
2.
The RTC will keep time for a minimum of one hour without any power
page 47
3.
Time-periods
A time-period is defined by a start and end date and time. Up to
100 time-periods can be defined. A Time-period can be a once off event, or
can be set to repeat on a weekly or annual basis. The weekly repeat can be
chosen to occur on every day of the week, weekdays only, weekends only, or
any specific day. The minimum duration of a time period is one minute. Once
off time-periods have the highest precedence, followed by annual and then
weekly. When appropriate, a “Tp” icon will appear on the display to indicate
that a time-period is active.
4.
Auto-activations (Auto function)
The following controller inputs can be set to activate automatically during a
time-period:
a) Free-exit (FRX)
b) Pedestrian opening (Ped)
c) Holiday Lockout (Lck)
d) Closing beam (IRBC)
e) Courtesy light control (Aux)
During the relevant time period, the selected input will be activated. Where
appropriate, the diagnostic LED of the relevant input will illuminate.
The following controller input/output can be set to activate automatically
during a time period:
a) Auxiliary input/output (Aux IO)
5.
Time-barring
Time-barring of inputs is divided into physical inputs and RF inputs (inputs
mapped to a NOVA rolling code (KeeloqTM encryption) transmitter button).
The following physical inputs can be time-barred (prevented from
operating) during a time-period:
a) Trigger (Trg)
b) Pedestrian opening (Ped)
c) Free-exit (FRX)
d) Holiday Lock (Lck)
e) Courtesy light control (Aux)
The following physical outputs can be time-barred (prevented from
operating) during a time-period:
a) Courtesy (pillar) light relay (Light)
b) Auxiliary output (Aux IO)
The following RF inputs can be time-barred (prevented from operating)
during a time period:
a) Trigger (Trg)
b) Pedestrian opening (Ped)
page 48
c) Free-exit (FRX)
d) Holiday Lock (Lck)
e) Courtesy light control (Aux)
Time-barring of a NOVA rolling code (KeeloqTM encryption) transmitter is
specified at the time of coding the transmitter into the system. Once an
RF input is defined as time-barred, any time-barred transmitter
associated with that input will be time-barred during the relevant
Time period.
If a physical or RF input is currently time-barred, any attempt to activate
it will be acknowledged by a short beep of the onboard buzzer. The input,
however, will not activate.
6.
Exclusions
Exclusions are used to prevent scheduled time-periods from occurring at
specific times (eg: public holidays). While time-barring can be used to
achieve a similar end, exclusions can also be used to exclude time-barring
itself. Each exclusion consumes one time period. Exclusions have the highest
precedence, followed by time-barring and then Auto-activationss
(auto function).
Menu 10 - General features
1.
D10 Turbo Mode (D10 Turbo only)
This mode, when selected, will enable the operator to run at a maximum
speed of 40-50 metres per minute (varies with load). Whenever the controller
is rebooted, an icon at start-up will indicate whether the unit is currently
configured for Standard or Turbo mode
2.
Operating standard
Regional operating standards can be set. Applying this setting will
automatically configure the controller settings to conform to the specific
regions standard (e.g. UL325 or CE)
3.
Reset options
The controller settings can be reset through the reset options menu. Various
reset options are available:
a) Factory defaults – All settings will be restored to the default values
dictated by the operating standard/profile that is currently selected. All
remote controls and gate limits will not be affected.
b) Delete all remotes - Delete all the remotes stored in the system, no
settings affected
c) Delete all time-periods - All Auto-activations (auto function) and timebar functions are deleted or removed
d) Reset all – Clears and defaults the system completely. Unit will be reset to
the factory default settings in addition to clearing all remotes and time
periods
page 49page 42
4.
Diagnostic screen
Allows a diagnostic screen to be displayed. This can be useful
whentroubleshooting, but requires some technical knowledge.
5. Round test button
Allows the round test button on the controller to be disabled, in cases where
higher security is required.
6. Backup EEPROM
Allows all controller settings, remote controls and time period functions to be
backed up. Requires a backup module, obtainable from CENTURION.
7. Restore EEPROM
Allows all controller settings, remote controls and time period functions that
have previously been backed up, to be restored. Requires a backup module,
obtainable from CENTURION.
If the backup module is used to restore the settings of a different
D10/D10 Turbo operator, then the gate limits setup procedure must be
performed again.
Menu 11 - Remote controls
The controller is capable of learning up to 500 CENTURION NOVA rolling code
(KeeloqTM encryption) remote controls buttons. Each transmitter can have up to
four buttons.

It is possible to artificially increase the number of buttons of a multibutton transmitter 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. In other
words the user will press and hold the shift button, before pressing
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 the other buttons

Benefits of the shift button system:

Use of the shift button system allows a three button transmitter to
gain an extra button and operate four functions and likewise a four
button transmitter gains two extra buttons and can operate six
functions

Another benefit of using the shift button system is that it requires
both hands to operate the two button combination. This
prevents the user from accidentally enabling sensitive functions such
as holiday lockout on the controller

Each transmitter learned into the system is assigned a unique
transmitter ID.
page 50
1.
Press valid button
If the remote controls menu has been locked as discussed later, only by
pressing a button of a transmitter learned into the system, can the remote
controls menu be accessed.
2.
Add remote
Any button can be set to control the trigger, pedestrian, free-exit, holiday
lockout or courtesy light control (Aux) inputs. When adding transmitters, it is
recommended that a record be kept of the ID number allocated by the system
to each respective transmitter and the person to whom the transmitter is
given. This is necessary should selective deletion be required at a later stage.
3.
Delete remote
Transmitters can be deleted at any stage according to one of the following
methods:
a) Delete remote by ID
Each transmitter can be deleted individually according to its unique ID. To
facilitate this, a record of the ID and the person to whom the ID has been
assigned must have been made at the time of learning the transmitter into
the system. The transmitter is not required for this operation.
b) Delete remote button
The operation of a button of a particular transmitter can be cleared. For
example, it allows the Holiday Lockout function set on one remote button
of a transmitter to be cleared, without affecting the other operations that
the same transmitter performs. The transmitter is required for this
operation
c) Delete remote by button
Use this procedure to remove the transmitter from the system. All button
functionality will be removed. The transmitter is required for this operation.
d) Delete-Not-Present
Allows for transmitters that have not been used within a selectable time
period to be removed from the system. The time period can be set from
one hour to seven days, in one hour increments.
4.
Delete all remotes
Clears the entire memory. All transmitters will be removed.
5.
Edit remote button
Change the function of one button to perform another function. For example,
button one’s function is to open the gate completely. To change this, use the
edit remote button, select Ped, and button one of the same remote will now
only open the gate to pedestrian.
6.
Autolearn
Allows a selectable time period to be set, during which any specific button,
when pressed, will be learned to a specific function. The function itself will
also be activated when the button is pressed.
After the time period has expired autolearn is disabled, and no further buttons
will be learned.
page 51
The time period can be set from one hour to seven days in one hour
increments.
7.
Tx menu locked
Allows the remote controls menu to be locked, preventing the
unauthorized addition of new transmitters to the system. Once enabled, the
remote controls menu can only be accessed by pressing a valid
transmitter button.
8.
Onboard receiver
The onboard NOVA rolling code (KeeloqTM encryption) receiver can be
disabled in the unlikely event that it causes interference with an existing
external receiver.

24V +
Positive battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as + or red (right hand
battery)
24V -
Negative battery connection.
Battery terminal normally indicated as - or black (left hand
battery)
Motor
Motor output – connects to the thick blue motor wire
Motor
Motor output – connects to the thick black motor wire
Aux IO
The Aux IO terminal provides an open collector output which can be used
for alarm or auto function purposes. If the collision alarm output or the
IRB alarm output has been configured to Aux IO, then the negative of the
alarm device must be connected to this terminal. The positive of the alarm
device must be connected to the Aux 12V Out terminal. Similarly, if Aux
IO is autoactivated via a ChronoGuard auto function time period, the
device being switched (typically a 12V relay) must be powered from the
Aux 12V Out terminal, and have its negative switched by Aux IO. If the
Aux IO has not been selected as either an alarm indicator output or auto
activated output, the Aux IO terminal will behave as a Com termination
point. All trigger signals, etc., have their return path to one of the Com
terminals.
Com
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc. have their return
path to one of the Com terminals.
Status
External gate status indicator. (A low current output signal.) An output
terminal which provides a low current, drive (approx. 4,5V DC, 20mA) to a
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. For more details on the feedback about the status of the gate
provided by the status LED refer to Section 24.
Aux
Activates the pillar light relay. (A normally-open potential-free input).
Momentarily connecting this input to Com will cause the light relay to
energize for a period of time as set in the courtesy light timer menu. If the
connection is made for a period exceeding three seconds the pillar light
relay will latch and remain latched indefinitely until a new momentary
connection to Com is given.
FRX
Free-exit input. (A normally-open potential-free input). Momentarily
connecting this input to Com will cause a gate which is closed, or closing,
to open or re-open. If the gate is open, or opening, the signal has no
effect other than to reset the autoclose timer (if selected). Free-exit (FRX)
never initiates a closing cycle. The only way to close a gate, if only the
FRX input is used, is to activate the autoclose feature on the controller.
Com
The common termination point. All trigger signals, etc. have their return
path to one of the Com terminals.
page 55
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 in Section 21.
Trg
Trigger input. (A normally-open potential-free input.) Momentarily
connecting this input to Com will cause the gate to open, close or stop,
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.

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

This input can be configured as an emergency stop input. Refer
to Section 21, Menu 2 for details
If the Lck function is not required a link must be fitted between
Lck
and Com*(refer to note on page 55)
Safety Open Opening beam safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input).
As long as a connection between this input and Safe Common 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 close the gate if it is opening. This input has no effect if the gate
is closing.
If the Safety Open and reverse functions are not required a link
must be fitted between Safety Open and Safe Common for the
controller to operate normally* (refer to note on page 55)
Safety Close Closing beam safety input. (A normally-closed potential-free input). As
long as a connection between this input and Safe Common 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 open the
gate if it is closing. This input has no effect if the gate is opening.
If the Safety Close function is not required a link must be fitted
between Safety Close and Safe Common for the controller to
operate normally* (refer to note on page 55)
Aux 12V Out Auxiliary power connection. Provides +12V DC supply for auxiliary
equipment such as a radio receiver, photo cells, etc. It is electronically
limited to 300mA.
page 56
Safe Common Used for switching the power supply to the safety beams. If
automatic beam testing is required, the negative power supply
connection of the beam transmitter only must be wired to this point. In
addition, the beam test circuit must be switched on via Menu 6. See
Section 21.
Light/light
Pillar light connection. These two terminals provide a normally-open
potential-free contact which is generally used to switch on a pillar light
(courtesy light). This contact is fuse protected – refer to Section 3 for
fuse specifications.
*
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.
page 57
24. Diagnostics
Diagnostic LEDs
The D10/D10 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 a non-illuminated green LED indicates that the signal is absent (e.g. IRB
broken).

Problem
Possible faults


Besides a faulty controller, which will be considered last, the
only components that could cause this symptom are a missing
origin, or and most unlikely, a faulty DOSS sensor
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 pages 27 to 28. Check if the gate origin has accidentally
moved. If so, reset the limits as directed on page 35
 Check that the DOSS sensor harness is properly plugged into
the magnetic origin switch, the DOSS sensor and the
Gate repeatedly overrides
controller
its end-of-travel limits
 Carefully check the condition of the harness - look out for any
bad crimp joints between the wires and the connectors on the
harness
 Check that the magnetic origin switch is mechanically
switching. While 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.
Also confirm the direction of the magnet using the relevant
diagnostic screen (e.g. magnet on the left or magnet on the
right)
 Check that the magnetic origin switch is securely clipped into
the housing
 Unclip and lift out the DOSS sensor and check that there is
no evidence of oil on the sensor eyes or ant/dirt ingress

faulty
Intermittent fault on Ped (Pedestrian) input. Check wiring,
and keyswitch/keypad operation
Check Procedure B: False collision detection
If the problem is still not solved, the main controller might be
faulty
By default the motor would delay opening to pedestrian for
two seconds. This time can be changed by altering the value
of the Pedestrian pre-open delay feature - refer to Section 21,

Problem
Possible faults

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)
The Pedestrian feature operated via the onboard receiver
could have been inadvertently set to be latching. Refer to the
remotes diagnostic screen for assistance
If an external receiver is operating the Pedstrian input, check
for an accidental latching contact , or a faulty
keyswitch/keypad
The fault is with the receiver
Internal receiver could be locked
 Check remotes are correctly learned to the receiver. Refer
to remotes diagnostic screen for verification
 The onboard receiver could be faulty
 If an external receiver is used, check:
 the wiring between the receiver and control card
 that the receiver has power
 that the receiver is not faulty
 that the remotes are learned correctly to receiver

Gate opens from the
intercom, but not
via remote control
Procedure A - Low battery voltage condition
Status light flashes three times – LCD indicates “Battery Low”
If the battery voltage is less than 21.0V, the motor would not operate at all. For any other
voltage, the battery could still be the cause of the problem. Is the battery being properly
charged?
1.
Check the “mains present” icon on the main diagnostic screen or switch to the battery
charger diagnostic screen and check the charger voltage – right hand value. This
should indicate 27.6V
2. Check that the mains power is turned on(measure 220V AC on the mains connector)
3.
Check that the red LED on the side of the charger is lit
4.
Check the charger’s supply fuse (D10 charger – 3A)
5.
Check that the white battery charger connector is making proper contact
6.
Check the condition of the battery leads, terminals and connectors. Look for and
correct all loose connections and signs of corrosion
7.
The battery might be discharged. Measure the battery voltage with the charger
connected, if the voltage is below 25.0V then the battery is discharged. The number
of opening cycles per hour may be excessive, thus discharging the battery. Refer to
the Trip Counter diagnostic screen for assistance. Charge the battery if required
8.
Charger might be faulty. Disconnect the battery, and measure the voltage on the
battery leads. It must be between 27.4V and 27.6V, if not replace the charger
page 63
9.
Battery might be old, and might have to be replaced. If in doubt test as follows:
a) Check that the battery is charged, by ensuring that the battery voltage is above
25.0V with the charger connected. (If the battery is in a good condition it would
probably pass the test without being fully charged)
b)
Disconnect the charger from the battery
c)
Remove the DC Motor leads from the DC Controller
d)
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
10. If the battery voltage drops to below 22.4V then the battery must be replaced
Before replacing the battery, measure the charging voltage on the battery
leads with the battery disconnected. Voltage must be between 27.4V and
27.6V. If not, replace the charger
Procedure B - False collision detection
Status light flashes four times to indicate that number of collisions have exceeded the
Collision Counter feature value. LCD screen indicates “Max Collisions”
With the operator in manual mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
1. Badly running gate, or something physically obstructing the gate. Check along the
entire travel of the gate
2.
Rack is not pressing down on to pinion
3.
Bad rack joints
4.
Wheels are not seized or running badly
5.
Top guide rollers are not restricting the gate
6.
No dirt on rail
7.
No physical damage to the rail
8.
Wheel catching side of pinion
With the operator in normal mode, check the following and correct if necessary:
9. Gate is not hitting the endstop
Do a general inspection of system, check the following and correct if necessary:
1. No ants, dirt, oil or water in and around the DOSS sensor
2.
DC motor wires for loose connections
3.
DOSS sensor wire harness is securely plugged into controller
4.
.DOSS sensor is securely clipped into the housing
5.
If the problem is not solved replace the DOSS sensor and main controller
Red/black/orange wire = Origin switch, and
Red/black/purple wire = DOSS sensor

26. Manual Operation
Manual release operation
In the event of power failure, or product malfunction, it may be required to lock the
cover in place whilst "latching" the manual release (i.e. manual release permanently
enabled). This helps prevent theft of the unit, or its components, and provides full
protection from the elements.
Manual release operation is shown below:
FIGURE 50
Manual release handle in closed
position.
FIGURE 51
Open lock cover and insert key.
Turn the key a quarter-turn,
counter-clockwise to unlock.
FIGURE 52
Pull the manual release handle
down to enable manual release.

Now that manual release is enabled, you may follow the process below to lock the cover
in place.
FIGURE 53
With the release handle
lowered, insert the split pin,
(supplied with the mounting
hardware kit), through the hole
in the gearbox as indicated.
FIGURE 54
Make sure that the split pin
goes all the way in as shown
above.

27. 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!
Even if the user has used one before, it does not mean he knows how to SAFELY operate
it. Make sure that the user fully understands the following safety requirements before
finally handing over the site.
The following needs to be understood by the user:
 How to operate the manual release mechanism. (Show them how by
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, Chronoguard, etc.
 All the safety considerations associated with operating an automated gate.
The user should be able to pass this knowledge on to all other users of the
automated system and must be made aware of this
responsibility.
