Preparation for Installation
The proper position of the post brackets is a decisive factor to the efficiency and leverage of the gate opener.
The distance (usually it is 2.5cm /1 inch or more) between the gate opener and the gate is also determined by
the proper position of the post brackets.
Both round and square posts can be used because of the curved design of the post brackets. When mounting
the post brackets, use bolts long enough to pass through the entire post. When mounting the post brackets to
wooden posts, a larger-size washer or metal plate should be used between the bolts and the wooden post to
ensure the stability of the fastening hardware when thrust is used.
If the gate post is smaller than 15 cm (6”) diameter or square, it should be made of metal and set in cement to
ensure the stability of the post.
Determining the Position of Mounting Hardware
NOTE: The following steps are intended for Pull-to-Open gate installation only.
You will find a series of sizes from following chart to determine the proper mounting position
10
REV 14a
`
NOTE: Pay attention to distance A when installing the opener. It MUST be longer than or at least
equal to 8cm (3-1/4”). Otherwise, the opener force cannot be effectively completed. The opener
force is not notably related with the power of the opener.
Step 1
Place the post pivot bracket between the two post
brackets. Insert the M10 x 30 bolt through the center hole
of the post bracket and post pivot bracket as shown.
Place a ¢10 washer , ¢10 lock washer and M10 nut on
the bottom of the bolt and hand tighten.
11
REV 14a
`
Step 2
Attach the gate bracket and post bracket assembly to the opener by inserting a clevis pin. Secure the
clevis pins using the hairpin clips.
Step 3
With the gate in its desired open position (from 0° to 100° from the gate closed position) and with the
opener in its retracted position, place the opener with the gate bracket and post bracket assembly on the
gate post and the gate. Position the gate bracket and the post bracket assembly so that the gate opener
is level with the horizontal cross member of the gate. While holding the opener in the desired level
position, temporarily secure it with two C-clamps.
NOTE: There is an emergency release feature. Use the release key to release the opener, you can
stretch the moving rod or retract it by hand to pull or push the front mount assembly. Be sure that the
openers are both locked before you prepare to activate your openers. Other information please
refer to content in page 25.
12
REV 14a
`
Step 4
Determine the optimum position of the pivot bracket on the post bracket assembly by ensuring a
minimum 2.5cm (1 inch) distance exists between the gate and the gate opener in both the gate-open and
gate-closed positions. To ensure the minimum 2.5cm (1 inch) distance maintained in the gate-closed
position, remove the clevis pin from the gate bracket while holding the gate opener, and then close the
gate. Move the gate opener so as the gate bracket and the opener are aligned.
NOTE: Ensure the gate opener and the pivot brackets do not bind in the gate –open and gate –closed
positions.
If you don’t have enough distance, or the gate opener is binding on the post pivot bracket, you may move
the post pivot bracket assembly slightly to the right or left to obtain the proper distance.
After you’ve identified the desired position of the pivot bracket, place the M8 x 30 bolt into the desired
pivot on the post bracket.
Installing the Mounting Hardware
Step 5
Sign the bolt-hole point on the gate bracket and gate. Do this by placing a punch or a sign in the middle
of each bolt slot on the post bracket assemblies and the gate bracket. This allows slight adjustments to
the post bracket. Then remove the post bracket and gate bracket by taking off the C-clamps.
13
REV 14a
`
Step 6
Using a drill and a drill bit of ¢10.5, drill holes through the
post and the gate at the signed bolt hole point.
Step 7
Attach the post bracket assemblies to the gate posts by
inserting four M10 x 200 bolts through each post bracket
assembly and the drilled holes in the gate post. Fasten each
bolt with one ¢ 10 washer, one ¢ 10 lock washer, and
one ¢10 nut.
Step 8
Attach the gate brackets to each gate
by inserting two M10 x 75 bolts
through the gate brackets and the
drilled holes in the gates. Fasten
each bolt with one ¢10 lock washer,
and one ¢10 nut.
Step 9
Cut all parts of bolt which are extending beyond the tightened nuts with a bolt cutter or saw.
Installing of the Opener
Step 10
Fasten the gate opener to the previously bolted post bracket assembly with the two clevis pins provided.
Insert one clevis pin through the gate opener and the gate bracket. Insert the other clevis pin through the
gate opener and the post bracket assembly. Secure the clevis pins with the two hairpin clips.

11. Set the Fast Running Period (FRP) to Achieve Soft Stop Function (SPP)
When the Digital Display indicates “PC”, the Fast Running Period for opening or closing gate is adjustable by
pressing “INC” and “DEC” buttons respectively, and the Soft Stop Function is achieved simultaneously.
The Soft Stop means the gate opener runs at slow speed during the last period before the gate completely
closes. The Soft Stop Period is unavailable by direct adjust but available through adjusting the Fast Running
Period.
There are two running speeds designed in program, i.e. Fast Running Speed and Soft Running Speed. The
Fast Running Period is adjustable from 1 to 28 sec. Factory default setting is 15 sec.
Since the GATE OPENING OR CLOSING RUNING PERIOD (GRP) = SOFT START PERIOD (STP) + FAST
RUNNING PERIOD (FRP) + SOFT STOP PERIOD (SPP), the SPP could be extended by shortening the FRP
when the GRP and STP are fixed. In other words, SPP = GRP–STP–FRP.
Similarly, the Soft Stop Period (SPP) can be shortened through extending the Fast Running Period (FPP).
E.g. When the Soft Start Period (STP) is set at 3 sec, and the GRP is 23 sec, how can we get 4 sec of Soft
Stop Period (SPP) to meet the requirement? The answer is clear, i.e. we may set the Fast Running Period
(FRP) at 16 sec (23 – 3 – 4 =16 sec).
12. Return to Factory Set
When the Digital Display indicates “Pd”, press and release the “INC” or “DEC” button. All data will return to
factory set, the Digital Display indicates “dF”.
13.
If all of data is set and no other change needed, press “FUNC” Button. “- -” appears on the Digital Display, and
the opener enters standby mode.
