Instructions regarding intended installation:

• Install the gate operator only if:

1. The operator is appropriate for the construction of the gate and the usage class of the gate.

2. All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to a minimum of 6 feet (1.83 m) above the ground to

prevent a 2 ¼ inch (57.2 mm) diameter sphere from passing through the openings anywhere in the gate, and in that portion of the adjacent fence

that the gate covers in the open position.

3. All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded.

4. Guarding is supplied for exposed rollers.

• The operator is intended for installation only on gates used for vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate access opening. The pedestrian

access opening shall be designed to promote pedestrian usage. Locate the gate such that persons will not come in contact with the vehicular gate

during the entire path of travel of the vehicular gate.

• The gate must be installed in a location so that enough clearance is supplied between the gate and adjacent structures when opening and closing to

reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates should not open into public access areas.

• The gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions prior to the installation of the gate operator. Do not over-tighten the operator

clutch, pressure relief valve or reduce reversing sensitivity to compensate for a damaged gate.

• For gate operators utilizing Type D protection:

1. The gate operator controls must be placed so that the user has full view of the gate area when the gate is moving.

2. A warning placard shall be placed adjacent to the controls.

3. An automatic closing device (such as a timer, loop sensor, or similar device) shall not be employed.

4. No other activation device shall be connected.

• Controls intended for user activation must be located at least six feet (6’) away from any moving part of the gate and where the user is prevented from

reaching over, under, around or through the gate to operate the controls. Outdoor or easily accessible controls should have a security feature to prevent

• The Stop and/or Reset button must be located in the line-of-sight of the gate. Activation of the reset control shall not cause the operator to start.

• A minimum of two (2) WARNING SIGNS shall be installed, one on each side of the gate where easily visible.

• For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor:

1. See the instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of application.

2. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate is still moving in the opening direction.

3. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as the perimeter reachable by a moving

gate or barrier.

• For gate operators utilizing contact sensors:

1. One or more contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as at the leading edge, trailing edge, and

post mounted both inside and outside of a vehicular horizontal slide gate.

2. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vehicular vertical lift gate.

3. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the pinch point of a vehicular vertical pivot gate.

4. A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the sensor and the gate operator is not

subjected to mechanical damage.

5. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for entrapment protection functions shall

be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar

obstructions. A wireless contact sensor shall function under the intended end-use conditions.

6. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vertical barrier (arm).

6550-065-K-6-17

Important Notices

Vehicular gate operator products provide convenience and security. However, gate operators must use high levels of force to move gates and most people underestimate the power of these systems and do not realize the potential hazards associated with an incorrectly designed or installed system.

These hazards may include:

• Pinch points

• Entrapment areas

Reach through hazards

• Absence of entrapment protection devices

• Improperly located access controls

• Absence of vehicle protection devices

• Absence of controlled pedestrian access

In addition to these potential hazards, automated vehicular gate systems must be installed in accordance with the UL 325 Safety Standard and the ASTM

F2200 Construction Standard. Most people are unaware of, or are not familiar with, these standards. If an automated vehicular gate system is not properly designed, installed, used and maintained, serious injuries or death can result. Be sure that the installer has instructed you on the proper operation of the gate and gate operator system.

Be sure that the installer has trained you about the basic functions of the required reversing systems associated with your gate operating system and how to test them. These include reversing loops, inherent reversing system, electric edges, photoelectric cells, or other external devices.

• This Owner’s Manual is your property. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.

• Be sure that all access control devices are installed a minimum distance of 6 feet away from the gate and gate operator, or in such a way that a

person cannot touch the gate or gate operator while using the device. If access control devices are installed in violation of these restrictions,

immediately remove the gate operator from service and contact your installing dealer.

Opening device MUST be mounted a minimum of 6 feet from the gate and

NOT accessible through the gate!

6550-065-K-6-17

• Loops and loop detectors, photo-cells or other equivalent devices must be installed to prevent the gate from closing on vehicular traffic.

• The speed limit for vehicular traffic through the gate area is 5 MPH. Install speed bumps and signs to keep vehicular traffic from speeding

through the gate area. Failure to adhere to posted speed limits can result in damage to the gate, gate operator, and to the vehicle.

• Be sure that all persons who will use the gate system are familiar with the proper use of the gate and gate operator and are familiar with the

possible hazards associated with the gate system.

• Be sure that warning signs are permanently installed on both sides of the gate in an area where they are fully visible to traffic.

• It is your responsibility to periodically check all entrapment protection devices. If any of these devices are observed to function improperly,

remove the operator from service immediately and contact your installing or servicing dealer.

• Follow the recommended maintenance schedule.

• Do not allow children to play in the area of the operator or to play with any gate-operating device.

• To remove the gate operator from service, operate the gate to the full open position and then shut off power to the operator at the service panel.

1.4 Overlapping Bi-Parting Gate Operator Positions

When installing overlapping gates (using a maglock to secure gates in the center or architectural overlapping design etc.), certain considerations must be taken into account or gates will NOT operate correctly.

The SECONDARY operator OPENS 1.5 secs BEFORE the primary operator (SW2, switch 1 - ON) to allow the secondary operator’s gate to stay clear of the gate overlap. It is VERY important to install the SECONDARY operator on the gate that opens

FIRST according to YOUR specific gate layout or gates will NOT operate correctly.

Overlap

This gate MUST open first in this example.

1.8 Installation of Warning Signs

This DoorKing Swing Gate Operator is shipped with two warning signs. The purpose of the warning sign is to alert uninformed persons, and to remind persons familiar with the gate system, that a possible hazard exists so that appropriate action can be taken to avoid the hazard or to reduce exposure to the hazard. See page 3 for suggested mounting positions of signs.

Permanently install the supplied warning signs in locations so

that the signs are visible by persons on both sides of the gate.

• Use appropriate hardware such as wood or sheet metal screws

(not supplied) to install the warning signs.

SECTION 2 - AC POWER TO OPERATOR(S)

Before attempting to connect any wiring to the operator, be sure that the circuit breaker in the electrical panel is in the OFF position. Permanent wiring must be installed to the operator as required by local electrical codes. It is recommended that a licensed electrical contractor perform this work.

Since building codes vary from city to city, we highly recommend that you check with your local building department prior

to installing any permanent wiring to be sure that all wiring to the operator (both high and low voltage) complies with local code requirements.

THIS GATE OPERATOR MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED!!

2.1 High Voltage Wire Runs

The distance shown in the chart is measured in Feet from the operator to the power source. If power wiring is greater than the maximum distance shown, it is recommended that a service feeder be installed. When large gauge wire is used, a separate junction box must be installed for the operator connection. The wire table is based on stranded copper wire. The wire run calculations are based on a power source with a 3% voltage drop on the power line, plus an additional 10% reduction in distance to allow for other losses in the system.

This table illustrates the high voltage wire size and distance limitations for a single operator.

wire size and distance limitations” table on the instruction sheet with the high voltage kit (P/N 2600-266) for AC power wire run limitations.

“Optional” 3.3 Amp Heater Installation Note: When installing the heater(s), refer to the “high voltage AC power wire size and distance requirements” table on the instruction sheet with the heater kit (P/N 6550-480) for AC power wire run requirements.

2.2 High Voltage Terminal Connections

• Route incoming high voltage power through conduit and into the operator as shown.

• Be sure wiring is installed in accordance with local codes. Be sure to color code all wiring.

• It is recommended that a surge suppressor be installed on the high voltage power lines to help protect the operator and circuit board from surges and power fluctuations.

• Secondary operator in a dual operator application gets AC power through the 8-wire interconnection cable that connects the 2 operators together. See next page.

3.4 Inherent Reverse Sensors Adjustment

This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable reversing sensor (Type A) used as entrapment protection according to UL 325 standards. The gate will reverse direction after “physically” encountering an obstruction in either the

opening or closing gate cycle.

If the Auto-Close Timer (DIP-switch SW 1, switch 4) is ON and the gate physically encounters an obstruction during the

CLOSING cycle, it will reverse to the open position and HOLD the gate at this position (Soft shutdown condition). Another input command is needed before the gate will reset and close again.

For the reverse sensors to function correctly, THE HUB MUST NOT SLIP when the gate encounters an obstruction. The gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions. A good set of roller bearing hinges is essential for proper swing gate operation.

For the reverse system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions and the limit

sensors must be properly adjusted BEFORE adjusting the reverse sensors. The ideal adjustment will allow the operator to move the gate through its entire travel cycle without reversing, but will reverse upon contact with an obstruction with no more than 40 Lbs of force. This force can be measured with a gate scale.

CAUTION: Keep pedestrians and vehicles clear of the gate while adjusting and testing sensors!

Note: “Push to Operate” button will use the

Auto-Close timer if turned ON (SW 1, switch 4 ON).

Cycle the gate a few times to be sure that it cycles completely in both directions, adjusting the primary sensor as necessary.

Safety Note: The LED will remain ON after a cycling gate gets obstructed during normal operation to indicate that the reverse sensor has been tripped.

Always check the gate area for possible obstructions before putting operator back in service.

Dual Operators:

Adjust reverse sensors for each operator when dual operators have been installed.

Secondary

Note: If the minimum or maximum reverse sensor sensitivity adjustment is reached and the Secondary Operator will not reverse properly, the Secondary

Operator Current Sensor’s wire turns will have to be altered.

See 3.5 Secondary Current Sensor Adjustment on the next page.

Primary

22

Test the operator reversing sensitivity:

Place an immobile object along the gate path, allowing the gate to strike it while in the open and close cycles. The gate must reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not, increase the reverse sensitivity and repeat this testing until the correct sensitivity has been achieved in BOTH directions. The operator will assume a soft shutdown (Hold the auto-close timer) after striking and reversing the gate which will require pressing the “Push to Operate” button to cycle the operator again.

6550-065-K-6-17

3.5 Secondary Current Sensor Adjustment

(Dual Gates ONLY)

The PRIMARY gate operator’s “secondary reversing sensor” uses a secondary current sensing device (Located only in the primary operator) to detect any obstructions “physically” encountered in the SECONDARY gate path when using dual gates.

The secondary current sensor uses a sensing coil with a given number of turns through it to monitor the current flow into the secondary operator. Each time the wire passes through the coil, it is considered a turn. The number of turns through the sensing coil is dependant on the operating voltage of the operator and the weight of the gate. In general, light weight gates may require additional turns of wire through the secondary current sensor, while heavier gates may require less turns. CAUTION –

HIGH VOLTAGE: Be sure power is turned OFF before changing the number of wire turns to the secondary current sensor. When you are setting the secondary reverse sensor (section 3.4 on the previous page) and reach the MAXIMUM sensitivity position on the reverse sensor without activating the secondary operator reversing function, add an additional turn of wire through the secondary current sensor. If you set the secondary reverse sensor to the MINIMUM sensitivity position and the gate will not cycle completely, reduce the number of turns through the secondary current sensor.

4.4 Loop Detector Wiring

To help protect the operator from accidentally closing on vehicles in the gate’s path, DoorKing highly recommends that loops and loop detectors be installed. Loops are laid underneath, cut into asphalt or concrete driveways or buried beneath gravel and earth driveways. A loop detection system will sense a vehicle like a metal detector and send a signal to the gate operator preventing the gate from automatically opening or closing on a vehicle when it is in the gate’s path. DoorKing recommends that a licensed installer perform this work.

Reverse

• Loop detector wiring is shown for DoorKing

plug-in loop detectors. If other loop detectors are

used, refer to the installation instructions supplied

with those detectors for wiring instructions.

• If other detectors are used, use a separate power

supply to power these detectors.

• Loop layout shown is for a typical swing gate

application with two-way traffic, or one-way exit

Automatic Exit Loop

Automatically opens the gate for exiting vehicles without having to use a transmitter or keypad. The exit loop can be placed a minimum of 4 feet away from the reverse loop or far enough away from the gate so the gate has started opening or even completely opened by the time you drive up to it (Free exit).

Automatic exit loop lead in wires are twisted approx. 6 twists per foot.

SECTION 5 - OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

- To reduce the risk of injury or death:

1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.

3. Always keep people and objects away from gate.

NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE

.

4. Test the operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid object or stop or reverse when an object activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to adjust and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or death.

5. Use the emergency release only when the gate is not moving and power has been shut-off.

6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a qualified service person make repairs to gate hardware.

7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.

6550-065-K-6-17

5.2 Shutdown Conditions

Under various entrapment conditions the operator will assume either a soft or hard (alarm) shutdown. To determine what type of reset action is required, you will need to understand how the different entrapment conditions affect the gate operator.

Soft Shutdown

This occurs in various situations where the inherent or entrapment protection devices have been activated. In a soft shutdown condition, the operator will not respond to any input that was present when the entrapment protection device sensed an obstruction. If the gate stops at the open position, the operator will not respond to the automatic close timer.

Example 1 - A time clock keys the gate open in the morning and an entrapment protection device senses

an obstruction prior to the gate reaching the full open position. If the entrapment is sensed by the inherent

system, the gate will reverse and run back to the closed position. The time clock input is still present, but

the gate will not re-open.

NOTE: In some systems, the time clock input comes from the telephone entry system relay. This same relay may also provide open commands for a card reader, MicroPLUS transmitters and the visitor telephone entry. If so, these devices will also be disabled in a soft shutdown condition.

Example 2 - If the gate is closing and an entrapment protection device is activated, the gate will either stop

or reverse and run back to the open position, depending upon if the secondary or inherent device was

activated. The automatic close timer will not close the gate.

Example 3 - Vehicle arrives at open loop and gate runs towards the open position. The inherent entrapment

protection is activated. The gate reverses and runs back to the closed position. If the vehicle is still present

at the open loop a soft shutdown condition does not occur. The loop input provides an immediate reset of

the operator and the gate will again run to the open position.

Resetting a Soft Shutdown

In some conditions, a soft shutdown will reset as soon as the entrapment condition clears. For example, if a non-contact sensor (photo sensor) is sensing an obstruction, the operator will stop the gate and assume a soft shutdown condition. When the photocell clears, the operator will return to normal operation.

When the operator is in a soft shutdown, activation of any "intended input" will reset the operator. An "intended input" includes any command, any standard safety input and any loop input. Activating any of these inputs will reset the gate. At that point the gate will return to normal operation. If the gate is open, the automatic close timer will then time out and close the gate.

6550-065-K-6-17

Hard Shutdown (Alarm Activated)

A hard shutdown condition occurs when the inherent entrapment protection system has sensed TWO consecutive obstructions before the gate reaches the full open or closed position.

Example - The gate is closing and the inherent entrapment protection system senses an obstruction and

causes the gate to reverse direction. As the gate begins to run in the open direction, a second obstruction

is sensed prior to the gate reaching the full open position. Once the second obstruction has been sensed,

the operator will stop, the audio alarm will be activated and all standard inputs are shut down (including

open commands, safety commands, loop inputs, etc.).

The audio alarm will sound for five minutes, or until the operator’s reset button is pushed. After (5) five minutes the alarm will “chirp every 5 sec.” and the hard shutdown condition will remain in affect until the reset button is pushed.

• After 5 minutes, the audio alarm will “chirp” every 5 seconds. This indicates that the operator is in a hard

shutdown condition and the reset switch must be activated to reset the operator and silence the alarm.

Continued on the next page

29

Resetting a Hard Shutdown

When the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (audio alarm activated or audio alarm “chirps” every 5 seconds), the only way to reset the gate operator and return it to normal operation is to activate the alarm reset input

(auxiliary terminals 2 and 3). An alarm-reset switch can be mounted external of the gate operator provided that it is installed in the line of sight of the gate and gate operator.

• Before resetting a hard shutdown, determine why the shutdown occurred. Inspect the gate for any

obstructions along its path that could have activated the inherent entrapment sensing system. Inspect

the gate and gate hardware.

NOTE: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator above the power

ON-OFF toggle switch. Activating this button will return the gate operator to normal operation, but will not activate

the gate operator.

Once the gate has been reset, an open or close command is needed to start the gate operator. Most activating commands will cause the gate operator to cycle to the open position. This includes activation of a key switch or open command and activation of the automatic exit loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the closed position.

30

5.3 Manual Gate Operation

This operator is equipped with a manual release system that will allow the gate to be pushed open in the event of a power outage or equipment failure. NEVER remove the hub from the operator after manually releasing it.

This gate operator CAN NOT be manually forced open in the event of a

power failure without FIRST manually releasing the gate! (See next page)

Never attempt to manually push open any gate with an operator attached to it until you have verified that power to the operator has been shut-off.

Emergency Vehicle Access Conditions

The automatic vehicular gate system must be designed to allow access to emergency vehicles under different operating conditions.

1. During normal powered operation, emergency vehicles access the gate by use of the

Emergency Vehicle

Access Device

installed on your gate system. The type of device that is used in your community is dependent on your city codes. These devices may include (but are not limited to) Fire Department lock boxes, Click-2-

Enter radio receivers, strobe light sensors, siren sensors, etc.

2. In the event of a primary (AC) power failure and a back-up system (DC) power failure (low charged or dead batteries for example), the system must have a release system to allow the gate to be

SECTION 6 - MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING

Inspection and service of this gate operator by a qualified technician should be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or suspected. High cycle usage may require more frequent service checks.

32

6.1 Maintenance

When servicing the gate operator, always check any external reversing devices (loops, photo eyes, etc.) for proper operation. If external reversing devices cannot be made operable, do not place this operator in service until the malfunction can be identified and corrected.

Always check the inherent reversing system when performing any maintenance. If the inherent reversing system cannot be made operable, remove this operator from service until the cause of the malfunction is identified and corrected. Keeping this operator in service when the inherent reversing system is malfunctioning creates a hazard for persons which can result in serious injury or death should they become entrapped in the gate.

When servicing this gate operator, always turn power OFF!!

If gearbox requires oil, use only Mobil SYNTHETIC SHC-629 Oil. Do not completely fill gearbox with oil. Gearbox should be half full only. Do not exceed this level.

Check external reverse device(s) stop or reverse the gate when activated.

Complete check of gate and gate operating system.

6550-065-K-6-17

6.2 Troubleshooting

Have a good VOM meter to check voltages and continuity. A Meg-Ohm meter capable of checking up to 500 meg-ohms of resistance is necessary to properly check the integrity of the ground loops. When a malfunction occurs, isolate the problem to one of three areas: 1) the operator, 2) the loop system, 3) the keying devices. Use caution when checking high voltage areas:

terminals 17 through 20, the motor capacitor and the motor.

1. Check the input indicator LEDs. They should only come ON when a keying device (card reader, push button, etc.) is activated. If any of the input LEDs are ON continuously, this will cause the gate operator to hold open. Disconnect the keying devices one at a time until the LED goes OFF.

2. Check any external entrapment protection devices. Any short or malfunction in these devices can cause the gate operator to stop or to hold open.

3. A malfunction in a loop or loop detector can cause the gate operator to hold open, or to not detect a vehicle when it is present over the loop. The LEDs next to the loop detector ports on the operator circuit board will light only when the loop has detected an object above it. If the LEDs stays on after the object has gone, then the loop detector has malfunctioned. Pull the loop detector circuit boards from the loop ports on the operator circuit board. If the malfunction persists, the problem is not with the loop system. For more information on trouble shooting loops and loop detectors, refer to your loop detector instruction sheet and to the DoorKing Loop and Loop Detector Information Manual.

4. Check to be sure that there are no shorted or open control wires from the keying devices to the gate operator. If a keying device fails to open the gate, momentarily jumper across terminals 1 and 2 (or 1 and 5) on the gate operator circuit board. If the gate operator starts, this indicates that a problem exist with the keying device and is not with the gate operator.

5. Check the high voltage supply. A voltage drop on the supply line (usually caused by using too small supply voltage wires) will cause the operator to malfunction. Refer to the wire size chart in section 2.1 page 16.

Operator will not run.

Power LED is OFF.

• Check that power to the operator is turned ON.

• Transformer may be overheated. Turn power off and allow board to cool for several minutes then retest.

Check for low 115 VAC power and low voltage shorts.

• Check for 115 VAC at terminals 19 and 20. If voltage measures OK, check the terminal strip or replace the

Operator will not run.

Power LED is ON.

• Insure that a minimum of one (1) entrapment protection device is connected and the input it is connected to is

enabled (UL 325-DIP switch is ON).

• Push test button or momentarily jumper terminal 1 to terminal 2 (or 1 to 5). If the input LED does not come

ON, check the terminal strip or replace the circuit board. If LED does come ON, proceed to next steps.

Check Motor:

Remove circuit board. With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 19 to terminal 18 with a 14 AWG

insulated jumper wire. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run.

With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 19 to terminal 17 with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire.

CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run in the opposite direction of the above step.

If the motor runs in both steps above, replace the control board. If the motor does not run, or runs in

only one direction, problem can be a bad motor, motor capacitor, wire connections from the control

board to the motor or a bad control board.

Secondary operator motor will not run.

• Check that SW-1, switch 6 is ON.

• Remove circuit board. Momentarily jumper terminal 19 to the primary/secondary connection terminal block

terminal 1, then to terminal 2 with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE.

The secondary motor should run one way, then the other way as power is applied to each terminal.

• If the secondary motor runs in both directions, replace the control board. If secondary motor does not run, or

runs in only one direction, problem can be in the wiring from the primary to secondary operator,

bad secondary motor or motor capacitor.

Symptom Possible Solution(s)

Operator will not run, entrapment protection input(s) LED is ON.

• The entrapment protection device has a fault or the wiring to it is shorted.

Operator will not run, entrapment protection input(s) LED is

Blinking.

• The entrapment protection device is not connected or the wiring to it is open.

Gate will not reverse when an obstruction is encountered.

• Check ERD setting.

• Make sure operator hub does not slip when gate encounters an obstruction.

Gate opens a short distance, then stops and reverses.

• Check the reversing sensitivity.

• Disconnect gate from the gate operator and check that the gate swings freely without any binding.

• Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.

Gate opens but will not close.

Gate closes but will not open.

• Check the input LEDs. Any ON will hold the gate open and indicates a problem with a keying device.

• Check the secondary safety devices. Any activated will hold the gate open and indicates a problem with the

• Check the loop detectors. Any activated can hold the gate open and indicates a problem with the loop detector

or ground loop.

• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Activate any keying device to determine if operator returns to normal

operation.

• If automatic close is desired, be sure SW-1, switch 4 is ON.

• Check motor as described on previous page.

• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs. If any are ON, momentarily disconnect, then

re-connect the wire going to the respective terminal. Operator should open.

• Check to be sure that the operator is running in the proper direction. Turn power OFF, and then back ON.

Activate a keying device. Operator should run in the open direction. If operator runs in the close direction,

turn power OFF and change direction switch SW-1, switches 1 and/or 2. Go to above section if operator now

opens but will not close.

• Be sure that the respective LED on the control board lights when the keying device connected to the respective

terminal is activated. If LED does not light, momentarily place a jumper wire from terminal 1 to the input

terminal being checked. If LED lights and gate opens, problem is with the keying device. If LED does not light,

replace control board.

• Check motor as described on previous page.

34

Gate starts to close, then reverses to open.

• Check that the reverse sensitivity is properly adjusted.

• Disconnect the gate from the operator and check that the gate operates freely without any binding.

• Check the loop detector LEDs and input LEDs. Any that flash ON will cause the gate to reverse.

• If a shadow loop is used, check for proper wiring. A mis-wired shadow loop detector will cause the gate to

reverse.

• Continue troubleshooting or replace the circuit board.

Gate closes and then re-opens.

• Check for any input or loop detector LEDs that are ON.

• Check that operator is running in the proper direction (see “Gate closes but will not open” above).

Alarm sounds for 5 minutes and then beeps once every 5 seconds. Operator will not run.

• Operator is in a “hard shutdown” condition. Reset switch must be activated to return operator to normal

operation.

6550-065-K-6-17

6.3 Built-in Diagnostics

This gate operator is designed with built-in diagnostics that will alert you to potential or existing problems that the microprocessor has detected. Specific fault conditions are checked and the operator will signal that a fault exist through the built-in alarm.

Constant tone is heard when power is applied:

This indicates that the limit switch wire harness is not connected to the circuit board. In this condition, the operator will not run and the tone will continue until the fault is corrected. Check to be sure that the limit switch plug is properly inserted into P2.

Constant tone is heard:

This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition. The tone will continue to sound for five minutes, and then will beep once every five seconds. The operator-reset button must be pressed or power must be removed and then reapplied to return the operator to normal operation.

Short tone is heard every five seconds:

This indicates that the operator has been in a hard shutdown condition in excess of five minutes. This will continue until the operator-reset button is pressed or until power is removed from the operator.

Operator runs for 1 second and stops, two short tones are heard:

This indicates that there may be a fault with the current sensor circuit. Check that the black current sensor wire has been passed through the hole in the current sensor donut with the correct number of loops (1 HP motor - 1 loop).
