SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING!
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS COULD
RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH AND/OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Appropriately licensed and competent personnel only should install the automation equipment.
The operators are designed specifically to open and close sliding gates or doors and should not be used for any
other purpose.
Before commencing installation, read through this installation manual.
Check that the operator and controls are in new condition and have not been damaged in transit.
Check the gate or door and its associated support posts and walls to protect against shearing, compression and
other various traps which could cause serious injury or death. Take into consideration the general installation and
surrounding environment.
Check the gateposts or mounting structure has the necessary strength and rigidity to support the operator and the
load of the opening and closing gate motion.
CAUTION!
Always incorporate the appropriate Photo Electric Cells, Induction Loops and any other
safety devices to protect both equipment and personnel. Extra caution should be employed
when using operator in auto close mode.
•
•
•
Display any necessary signs to indicate any danger areas and automatic operation of the gate or door.
The operators are not designed to be used in any hazardous areas or areas subject to flooding etc.
All electrical connections and wiring must be performed with AS/NZS 3000-2007 as the guidelines. (Or its
counterpart for other countries outside of Australia and New Zealand)
WARNING! ELECTRICITY CAN KILL
•
The manufacturer of the automation equipment is not responsible for the damage which may be caused to either
the operator, gate or door and any other person or equipment when: o Wrong or poor installation practices were performed.
o No or inadequate safety devices were used.
o EITHER THE SURROUNDING STRUCTURE OR THE GATE OR DOOR STRENGTH AND RIGIDITY WAS NOT
SUFFICIENT FOR THE TASK IN HAND.
o INEFFICIENT LOCKING DEVICES WERE EMPLOYED.
o Poor maintenance on the equipment.
o Any other circumstances beyond the manufacturers control.
•
ISOLATE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY MAINTENANCE, QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY TO CARRY OUT
MAINTENANCE
•
ONLY ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS ARE TO BE USED SHOULD THERE BE A REQUIREMENT FOR THEM.
•
KEEP LOOSE CLOTHING AND HANDS CLEAR OF THE GATE WHILST IN OPERATION OR POTENTIALLY ABLE TO BE
OPERATED.

WIRING REQUIREMENTS
- The operator can be connected to a suitable 240VAC 10A power circuit provided it is done so by a
licensed person and rules in AS/NZS 3000:2007 are adhered to.
- The operator can be ordered with separate power supply remote from operator making it easier to run low
voltage to the operator in situations where it’s difficult or not practical to run 240VAC. Special attention will
have to be made to the wire size used in this case to allow for voltage drop.
- Solar power can be used to power the operator instead of connecting 240VAC. This unit can be supplied
to run on solar power by special order.
- Conduits preferably need to come through base plate knock out. A plan view diagram is provided below to help
plan the conduit installation positions.
- If extra low voltage control cable runs are over 10m, Shielded cable should be used and the shield connected to the
chassis.

Mechanical Installation
1. Check that the gate runs smoothly throughout its travel and does not bind anywhere.
2. IMPORTANT Ensure gate stops are fitted at the fully open and closed positions. These stops need
to be engineered and installed in such a way that they will be strong enough to stop the gate should the
limits fail at any time.
3. Position the sliding gate operator on the concrete mounting pad and using a length of rack held onto the
gate rail, adjust the operator at a location where the pinion gear meshes fully onto the rack.
4. Ensure the pinion wheel face is parallel with the gate rail and mark the 4 holes through the mounting
plate for fixing.
5. Dynabolt mounting plate to concrete pad using 12mm x 100mm dynabolts.
6. Position gate operator so rack will fully mesh onto pinion gear.
7. Loosen manual release knob on the front of the gearbox (anticlockwise) and then start attaching rack to
the gate frame ensuring that the rack meshes onto the pinion gear with 1 – 2mm clearance.
8. Rack is normally tek screwed to gate rail. After fixing the rack for the full length of the gate, run the gate
back and check the rack meshes to the pinion gear without being too high or too low.
PLACE THE OPERATOR IN CORRECT POSITION. PINION WHEEL
TO BE PARALLEL TO THE GATE, AND STEPPED OUT TO ALLOW
FOR WIDTH OF RACK ONCE IT IS MOUNTED ONTO THE GATE
FRAME. MARK OUT FIXINGS AND FIX OPERATOR TO THE
CONCRETE PAD.
FIX RACK TO THE GATE FRAME KEEPING 1MM-2MM CLEARANCE
BETWEEN THE RACK TEETH AND PINION WHEEL.
ONCE THE RACK IS FIXED MOVE THE GATE AND SIGHT THE RACK
MOVING OVER THE PINION WHEEL, CHECK THAT MOST OF THE
PINION WHEEL MESHES WITH THE RACK. MAKE SURE RACK RUNS
FREELY OVER THE PINION WHEEL, ANY TIGHTS SPOTS SHOULD BE
CORRECTED BY ADJUSTING THE RACK HEIGHT. CHECK THE
OPERATOR IS FIRMLY BOLTED DOWN TO THE CONCRETE PAD.
ENSURE MECHANICAL STOPS ARE INSTALLED AT
THE FULLY CLOSED AND FULLY OPEN POSITIONS.

LIMIT SWITCH ADJUSTMENT
• The limit switch magnets initiate slow speed. The gate needs to slow down before it reaches
fully open or fully closed stops. It should not be installed to indicate end of travel.
• Install the limit switch magnets as shown in fig 6.
• Adjustments of the limit switch should be done after all other components are installed securely.
The 2 x limit magnets should have different marking on them. One should have a
should have a
and the other
. You cannot use the limit magnets if they have the same marking. The magnets can
be installed on either side (open or close). Please see the diagram below to locate the marking on the
magnets.

COMMISIONING
• Limits switches should be installed to initiate slow speed and not end of travel.
• Commissioning should only commence once all wiring is complete, and all the mechanical installation is
complete and checked including checking of all fixing bolts for tightness.
• Make sure there is no obstructions in the way of the gate travel, with no vehicle traffic, and no pedestrian traffic. If
the site is busy, necessary traffic/pedestrian barriers and warning signs must be in be in place before operating the
gate.
• An Elsema PentaFOB® or PentaCODE® transmitter has been supplied with the gate operator, and should have
already been programmed into the on-board receiver. If it hasn’t been programmed, press and hold programme 1
button on the receiver, while still pressing this button, press and release the remote button you want to use. The led
on the receiver will turn from red to green, indicating that the receiver has accepted the new code from the remote
control.
Before proceeding to “I Learn” menu, check that the limit switches are correctly aligned and working correctly. An
easy way to check is to enter menu 14.4 “Test Inputs”, and taking note when manually sliding the gate, that the switch
activates at the correct positions. When the switch activates, it will show on the screen which input has been triggered.
Once set correctly, proceed to the “I Learn menu”, menu No 11.
The travel limits must be learnt through the “I learn” procedure. This can be done by following the prompts on the
screen. Upon power up, the controller will go through its start-up, until on the screen will appear:
“Travel limit not set” press master control for 2sec, so press the master control button for seconds and scroll through
to menu 12 to select “I Learn”.
Once selected follow the prompts.
“Select entry type? Gate or Door” select “Gate” by pressing the master control.
“Limit switch operation” There are 2 ways in which the limit switches can be configured.
Gate or Door Slows on Limits
Gate or Door Stops on Limits
When the limit switches are activated, the gate will slow
down and will continue to open or close until it hits the
end stoppers and stop on current overload.
When the limit switches are activated, the gate will slow
down and stop as per the “ramp down” time set in menu
16.4.
Is the gate open halfway? If No, use open and close buttons to adjust gate position then press master control.
If yes is selected, the gate will proceed in the opening direction.
“Did the gate open yes or no” select yes if it did, if it closed, select no.
“Press close button to fully close the gate” press and hold the close button to fully close the gate.
“Press and hold open or RC to open gate” Press and hold the open button or the remote control button until the
open limit switch is activated. The gate will now either ramp down or search for the end stopper.
“Press and hold close or RC to open gate” Press and hold the close button or the remote control button until the
close limit switch is activated. The gate will now either ramp down or search for the end stopper.
“Learning successful” The gate can now be operated using remote controls or external push buttons (if installed)
NOTE if motor open/close speed settings are changed, the controller will again ask you to perform the I-Learn
procedure again. Slow speed, and limit switches can be adjusted to suit gate with no need to I learn again.
Once set up, proceed to check that all safety devices and other inputs/outputs are functioning correctly before handing
over the installation to the owner. Install cover, using screws provided in the front and sides to hold cover firm.
Provide full details to the owner concerning the operation and relevant maintenance and disconnect details, including
this manual and the manual release door keys, and the PentaFOB® set up remote control.

M ANUAL R ELEASE I NSTRUCTIONS
Place key in door lock, turn clockwise till released and pull door open.
Turn knurled knob anticlockwise approx. ½ a turn to release. With the clutch door open this
disengages the door switch which in turn inhibits the operation of the operator.
Gate can now be opened by hand.
To re-engage the clutch, move the gate by hand
into approx. the half way position and turn the
Knurled knob clockwise until it is tight.
If, when turning the knurled knob clockwise and
it just spins, either, try spinning it clockwise with more force
to release it off the hexagonal retaining nut or hold the nut
with one hand and turn the knurled knob clockwise
