INSTALLATION
Safety warnings
3.1 - Checks before installation
• CAUTION! - This manual contains important instructions and warnings
for personal safety. Wrong installation can cause serious injuries. Before
starting work read all the manual carefully. If in doubt, stop installation and
ask the Nice Assistance Department for clarifications.
Before installation, check the integrity of the components, suitability of the
model chosen and suitability of the environment chosen for the installation.
IMPORTANT – The gear motor cannot automate a manual gate which
does not have a safe and efficient mechanical structure. Furthermore, it
cannot solve the faults caused by wrong installation or bad maintenance
of the gate itself.
• CAUTION! – According to the most recent European legislation, the
realisation of an automatic door or gate must comply with the regulations of Directive 98/37/CE (Machine Directive) and in particular, standards EN 12445; EN 12543; EN 12635 and EN 13214-1, which declare
the presumed conformity of the automation. In consideration of this,
all the installation, connection, inspection and maintenance operations
of the product must be performed exclusively by a qualified and competent technician!
• CAUTION! – Important instructions: keep this manual for any possible
future requirement for maintenance and disposal of the product.
Warnings for installation
• Before installing check if this product is suited to automating your gate or
door (see chapter 3 and “Technical features of the product”). If unsuitable, DO
NOT proceed with the installation.
• Include a disconnection device in the power supply system with an opening
distance between the contacts to permit full disconnection in the conditions
dictated by the category of surcharge III.
• All the installation and maintenance operations must occur with the
automation disconnected from the electrical power supply. If the disconnection device of the power supply is not visible from the area where the
automatism is located, before starting the work it is necessary to attach a
sign with the text “CAUTION! MAINTENANCE IN PROGRESS” on the disconnection device.
• During installation handle the automatism with care avoiding crushing,
knocks, falls or contact with liquids of any kind. Do not place the product
near sources of heat, or expose it to naked flames. All these activities can
damage and cause malfunctions or dangerous situations. If this occurs, stop
the installation immediately and contact the Nice Assistance Department.
• Do not make alterations to any part of the product. Operations which are not
permitted will cause only malfunctions. The manufacturer declines any liability
for damage caused by arbitrary alterations to the product.
• If the gate or the door to be automated is fitted with a pedestrian door it is
necessary to include a control system in the installation to prevent the operation of the motor when the pedestrian door is open.
• Check there are no trapping points towards fixed parts when the leaf of the
gate is in the maximum Open position, if necessary protect these parts.
• The push button control on the wall must be positioned in sight of the
automation, away from the moving parts, at a minimum height of 1.5 m from
the ground and it must not be accessible to the public.
• The product packaging material must be disposed of respecting the local
regulations in force.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT
AND ENVISAGED USE
This product is intended to be used for automating swing gates or doors in an
exclusively residential context. CAUTION! – Any other use different to that
described and in ambient conditions different to those set out in this manual is to be considered improper and forbidden!
The product is an electromechanical gear motor, equipped with a 24 v continuous current and an endless screw reduction gear.
The gear motor is powered by the external control unit to which it is connected.
In the event of a black out, it is possible to move the gate leaves by hand,
unblocking the gear motor manually.
Fig. 1 shows all the components provided in the package (according to the
model chosen):
[a] - Electromechanical gear motor
[b] - Rear bracket and plate (for fixing the gear motor to the wall)
[c] - Front bracket (for fixing the gear motor to the gate leaf)
[d] - Metal parts (screws, washers, etc.)
[e] - Keys to manually unlock the gear motor
3.2 - Suitability of the gate to being automated and the surrounding environment
• Check the mechanical structure of the gate is suited to being automated and
conforms to the national laws in force (if necessary make reference to the data
on the gate label).
• Moving the gate leaf manually in Open and Close position, check the movement occurs with equal and constant attrition at each point of the stroke (there
must be no moments of greater effort).
• Check the gate leaf remains balanced, that it does not move if brought manually to any position and left stopped.
• Check the space around the gear motor allows to manually unblock the gate
leaf, easily and safely.
• Check the surfaces chosen for installing the product are solid and can guarantee stable fixing.
• Check the fixing zone of the gear motor is compatible with the size of the latter, see fig. 2: the correct Opening movement of the gate and the force the
motor exerts to perform it, depend on the position in which the rear fixing
bracket is secured. Therefore, before installing it is necessary to make reference
to graph 2 to define the maximum Opening angle of the leaf and the force of
the motor, suited to the individual system.
3.3 - Limits of use of the product
Before installing the product, check the gate leaf is the right size and weight
and falls within the limits shown in graph 1.
3.4 - Preparing for installation
Fig. 3 shows an example of an automation system designed with Nice components. These components are positioned according to a typical and usual
scheme. Making reference to fig. 3, decide the approximate position in which
to install each component envisaged by the system and the most appropriate
connection diagram.
Useful components for producing a complete system (fig. 3):
A - Electromechanical gear motors
B - Couple of photocells
C - Couple of stop blocks (in Opening)
D - Columns for photocells
E - Flashing signalling device with incorporated antenna
F - Key selector switch or digital keypad
G - Control unit
3.5 - Installation of fixing brackets and gear motor
3.5.1 – Installation of rear fixing bracket
Calculate the position of the rear bracket using graph 2.
This graph serves to establish dimensions A and B and the value of the maximum opening angle of the leaf. Important – The values of A and B must
be similar to allow linear movement of the automation.
01. Measure dimension C (fig. 4) on the fixing side;
02. On graph 2, identify dimension C found and trace a horizontal line that
determines the value of dimension B (*) as shown in the example of fig. 5;
the meeting point with line “r.i.l” (installation line recommended) determines
the value of the angle of maximum opening. From this point, trace a vertical
line as shown in the example of fig. 5 to determine the value of dimension
A.
If the angle found does not correspond to the requirements, adapt dimension A and if necessary dimension B, so they are similar.
03. Before being fixed to the wall the bracket must be sealed to the specific fixing plate (fig. 6); if necessary the bracket can be cut adapting values of
dimensions A and B.
Note – The rear bracket provided with the gearmotor has a length of 150
mm; in the case of special applications or an outward opening gate (fig. 7)
the bracket model PLA6 (optional accessory) may be used.
CAUTION! – Before securing the rear bracket, check the fixing zone
of the front bracket is in a solid part of the leaf, as this bracket must
be fixed at a different height of the rear bracket (fig. 8).
04. At this point, fix the bracket using dowels, screws and washers required
(not supplied).
3.5.2 – Installation of front fixing bracket
The front bracket must be fixed to the gate leaf respecting the values of dimensions D and E (Fig. 4).
2 – English
Note – The front bracket provided with the gearmotor must be welded directly
onto the gate leaf. If this is not possible, use the bracket model PLA8 (optional
accessory).
01. Establish the value of dimension E using Table 1;
02. Establish the height in which to position the front bracket, referring to fig. 8;
03. Fix the bracket to the solid part of the gate leaf.
To check the connections, direction of rotation of the motor, phase shift in the
movement of the leaves and setting the limit switch, refer to the instructions
manual of the control unit.
IMPORTANT – With a gate configured with opening towards the outside invert
the power supply wires with respect to the standard installation.

3.5.3 – Installation of the gear motor on the fixing brackets
• Installing the gear motor on the rear bracket:
01. Fix the gear motor to the bracket as shown in fig. 9 using the screw,
washer and nut supplied;
02. Tighten the nut to the end and then loosen by 1/10 of a turn to allow minimum clearance between the parts.
• Installing the gear motor on the front bracket:
01. Fix the gear motor to the bracket as shown in fig. 10 using the screw,
washer and nut supplied;
02. Tighten the screw to the end;
03. Fix the label provided in the package, dealing with the unblocking and
blocking operations of the gear motor, permanently close to the gear motor.
3.6 - Setting the mechanical limit switch
The mechanical limit switch allows to set the stop position of the gate leaf, in
this way, it is not necessary to use the stop blocks and the leaf does not hit
against these at the end of the manoeuvre.
WARNING – In the event of applications with a gate equipped with opening towards the outside (fig. 7) it is necessary to invert the power supply
wires. Set the limit switch in Opening of the gear motor as follows:
01. Unblock the gear motor as shown in fig. 14;
02. Loosen the mechanical stop screw;
03. Bring the gate leaf manually to the Open position required;
04. Then, bring the mechanical stop to the end of the pin and block the screw
(fig. 11);
05. Bring the leaf manually to the Close position and block the gear motor.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
CAUTION!
– A wrong connection can cause faults or danger; therefore follow scrupulously the connections set out.
– Perform the connection operations when the electricity is off.
To connect the gear motor to the control unit, proceed as follows:
01. Remove the lid of the gear motor as shown in fig. 12;
02. Slacken the gearmotor cable clamp, thread the connecting cable through
the hole and connect the three electric wires as shown in fig. 13;
03. Replace lid on gear motor.
5
INSPECTING THE AUTOMATION
This is the most important phase in realising the automation to guarantee maximum safety. The inspection can be used also to periodically check the devices
which make up the automatism.
The inspection of the entire system must be performed by expert and
qualified staff who must take responsibility of the tests requested, depending
on the risk involved and to check compliance of what is set out by laws, rules
and regulations and in particular all the requirements of regulation EN 12445
which establishes the testing methods to verify gate automatisms.
Inspection
Each single component of the automatism, for example sensitive edges, photocells, emergency shutdowns, etc. requires a specific inspection phase; for
these devices follow the procedures shown in the respective instruction manuals. For inspection of the gear motor follow the operations below:
01. Check that everything in this manual and in particular in chapter 1 has
been rigorously complied with;
02. Unblock the gear motor as shown in fig. 14;
03. Check it is possible to manually move the leaf when opening and closing
with a force no greater than 390N (approx. 40 kg);
04. Block the gear motor and connect the electrical power supply;
05. Using the control or shutdown devices envisaged (key selector switch,
control buttons or radio transmitters), perform a number of opening, closing and stopping tests of the gate and check it behaves as it should;
06. Check the correct operation of all the safety devices one by one in the system (photocells, sensitive edges, emergency shutdown, etc.) and check
the gate behaves as it should;
07. Command a closing manoeuvre and check the force of the impact of the
leaf against the end of the mechanical limit switch. If necessary, try to
unload the pressure, finding a setting which gives better results;
08. If the dangerous situations caused by the movement of the leaf have been
protected by limiting the force of impact the force must be measured as
required by regulation EN 12445.
Note – The gear motor is not provided with torque setting devices, such regulations are done by the Control unit.
Putting into operation
This can occur only after having performed, with positive results, all the inspection phases of the gear motor and other devices present. To put it into operation refer to the instructions manual of the control unit.
IMPORTANT – It is forbidden to put into partial or provisional operation.

PRODUCT MAINTENANCE
To keep the level of safety consistent and to guarantee maximum life of the
entire automation it is necessary to maintain it regularly.
The maintenance must be performed in line with the safety instructions of this
manual and according to what is set out by the laws and regulations in force.
For the gear motor a programmed maintenance within no more than 6 months
is required.
Maintenance operations:
01. Disconnect any sources of electricity.
02. Check the status of deterioration of all the materials which make up the
automation with particular attention to signs of erosion or oxidation of the
structural parts: replace the parts which do not provide sufficient guarantees.
03. Check the screw connections are sufficiently tight.
04. Check the bolt and endless screw are suitably greased.
05. Check the wear of the moving parts and, if necessary, replace used parts.
06. Reconnect the sources of electrical power and perform all the tests and
checks envisaged in chapter 5.
For the other devices present in the system refer to the individual instruction
manuals.

Durability of the product
GRAPH A
To establish the probable durability of your automatism proceed as follows:
01. Calculate the demand index summing the values in percentage of the
entries present in Table 2 to each other;
02. In Graph A, from the value just found, trace a vertical line until you intersect
the curve; from this point trace a horizontal line to cross the line of “cycles of
manoeuvres”. The value established is the estimated durability of your product.
The estimate of durability is performed on the basis of the design calculations
and the results of tests carried out on prototypes. In fact, being an estimate, it
does not give any guarantee on the actual duration of the product.
TABLE 2
125.000
cycles of manoeuvres
Durability is the average economic life of the product. The value of durability is
strongly influenced by the demand index of the manoeuvres performed by the
automatism: that is the sum of all the factors which contribute to the wear of
the product (see Table 2).

Instructions and cautions for the user of the
NiceHansa Wingo
Before using the automation for the first time, have the fitter explain the origin of the
residual risks, and dedicate a few minutes of your time to reading the instructions
manual and cautions for the user provided by the fitter. Keep the manual for any
future doubt and deliver it to any new proprietor of the automation.
CAUTION! –Your automation is a machine which faithfully performs your commands; a wrong or improper use will make it dangerous:
– Do not command the movement of the automation if people, animals or
things are within its range of action.
– It is totally forbidden to touch parts of the automation while the gate or door
is moving!
– Transit is allowed only if the gate or door is completely open with the leaves
stopped!
• Children: an automation system guarantees a high level of safety, preventing the
movement in the presence of people or things with its detection systems, and guaranteeing an always predictable and safe activation. It is any case prudent to forbid
children to play close to the automation and, to avoid accidental activations, do not
leave the remote control within their reach: it is not a toy!
• The product is not designed to be used by people (including children) whose physical, sensorial, or mental abilities are reduced, or those without experience or knowledge, unless they have been able to benefit, through intermediation of a person
responsible for their safety, of supervision or instructions regarding the use of the
product.
• Maintenance: As with each machine your automation needs periodic maintenance so that it can function as long as possible and in complete safety. Agree a
periodic maintenance plan with your fitter; Nice recommends maintenance every 6
months for normal domestic use, but this period may vary depending on the intensity
of use: Any control, maintenance or repair work must be performed by qualified personnel.
• Even if you consider yourself able to perform the work, do not modify the system
and the programming parameters or adjust the automation: it is the responsibility of
the fitter.
• The inspection, periodic maintenance work and any repairs must be documented
by the person who performs them and these documents must be kept by the owner
of the system. The only work you can perform and which we recommend doing periodically is cleaning of the glass of the photocells and the removal of any leaves or
stones which may obstruct the automatism. To prevent someone activating the gate,
before proceeding, remember to unblock the automatism (as described below) and
to clean it only with a sponge slightly dampened in water.
• Disposal: At the end of the life of the automation, ensure it is dismantled by qualified personnel and that the materials are recycled or disposed of according to local
regulations in force.
• In the event of breakage or black out: As you await for the fitter to perform the work
or for the electricity to return if the system is not equipped with buffer batteries, the
automation can still be used. It is necessary to manually unblock the gear motor (see
“Unblocking or blocking the gear motor”) and move the gate leaf manually as
required.
• Anomalies: As soon as you notice some anomalous behaviour by the automation, cut off the power to the system and unblock it manually. Do not attempt to perform any repair work, but ask the assistance of your trusted fitter: meanwhile the
system can work as an unautomated opening, once the gear motor has been
unblocked as described below.
UNBLOCKING AND BLOCKING THE GEAR MOTOR MANUALLY
The gear motor is equipped with a mechanical system which allows to open and
close the gate manually. These operations must be performed during electrical black
outs or operating anomalies.
IMPORTANT! – The gear motor must only be blocked or unblocked when the
leaf is stopped.
If there is an electric lock on the automation ensure the electric lock is unlocked
before moving the leaf.
