PLEASE READ THIS FIRST
ACCESS SYSTEMS, LLC
Thank you for purchasing the GTO slide gate operator. When correctly installed and properly used,
your gate operator will give you many years of reliable service. Please read the following information to
ensure you have the correct system for your particular needs. This manual will enable you to properly
install your Automatic Gate Operator.
The operator is designed for installation on a slide-to-open single or dual leaf gates. The gates must not
exceed 30 feet in length nor weigh more than 1000 pounds* (please see Technical Specifications on
page 2). This operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link and wrought iron gates.
The operator accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons, and other
access control products. These optional accessories are noted with the
symbol.
The operator features Dual Sense Technology™. This safety feature makes the gate stop and reverse
direction within two seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. The “MIN” setting means
the gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.
The operator also has an adjustable auto-close feature. It can be set to remain open from 3 to 120
seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button at any time after the gate fully
opens will cause it to close immediately. “OFF” is the factory setting; meaning the gate will stay open
until you press the transmitter button (or keypad, etc.) again.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential
hazards associated with improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate operator
systems. Keep in mind that the gate operator is just one component of the total gate operating system.
Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with convenience, security, and safety.
This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the consumer. Because there are
many possible applications of the gate operator, the safety precautions and warnings contained in
this manual cannot be completely exhaustive in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the
safe design, installation, and use of this product. CAREFULLY READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS, WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE THE SAFE
SYSTEM DESIGN, INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.
warning symbol. The symbol
Precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this
identifies conditions that can result in damage to the operator or its components, serious injury, or
death.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For The System Designer
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to meet the requirements set forth in the instruction
manual could cause severe injury or death, for which the manufacturer cannot be held responsible.
2. When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed far enough from the road to prevent traffic congestion.
3. The gate must be installed in a location that provides adequate clearance between it and adjacent structures when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment.
4. The gate and gate operator installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
1. Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use, and the proper class rating.
2. Make sure the gate has been properly installed and slides freely in both directions. Repair or replace all worn or
damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate and will
enhance the performance of the operator and safety devices used with the system.
3. Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to disconnect the
operator for manual gate operation (page v).
4. This gate operator is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for
pedestrian use (page viii).
5. Always keep people and objects away from the gate and its area of travel. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE
PATH OF A MOVING GATE.
II. During Installation
1. Install the gate operator on the inside of the property and fence line. DO NOT install an operator on the outside
of the gate where the public has access to it.
2. Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fingers or hands could be pinched.
3. Devices such as contact sensors (safety edges) and non contact sensors (photo beams R4222) provide
additional protection against entrapment. (see accessories on page 26)
4. If push buttons or keypads are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located at least 10 feet from
any moving part of the gate. Never install any control device where a user will be tempted to reach through
the gate to activate the gate operator.
5. Do not activate your gate operator unless you can see it and can determine that its area of travel is clear of
people, pets, or other obstructions. Watch the gate through its entire movement.
6. Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate operator controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.
vi MMSL2000BE Instruction Manual
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
III. After Installation
1. Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert the public of auto­matic gate operation. It
is your responsibility to post warning signs on both sides of your gate. If any of these signs or warning decals
become damaged, illegible or missing, replace them immediately. Contact GTO for free replacements.
2. The gate is automatic and could move at any time, posing a serious risk of entrapment. No one should be in
contact with an activated gate when it is moving or stationary.
3. Do not attempt to drive into the gate area while the gate is moving; wait until the gate comes to a complete
stop.
4. Do not attempt to “beat the gate” (drive through) while the gate is closing. This is extremely dangerous.
5. Do not allow children or pets near your gate. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep
ALL gate controls away from children and unauthorized users; store controls where children and unauthorized
users do not have access to them.
6. KEEP GATE AND GATE Operator PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Always turn power to operator OFF before
performing any maintenance. Regularly lubricate rollers.
7. To operate this equipment safely, YOU must know how to disconnect the operator for manual gate operation
(page iii). If you have read the instructions and still do not understand how to disconnect the operator, contact
the GTO Service Department.
8. Disconnect the operator ONLY when the power is TURNED OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
9. Make arrangements with local fire and law enforcement for emergency access.
10. Distribute and discuss copies of the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS section of this manual with all
persons authorized to use your gate.
11.IMPORTANT: Save these safety instructions. Make sure everyone who is using or will be around the gate
and gate operator are aware of the dangers associated with automated gates. In the event you sell the
property with the gate operator or sell the gate operator, provide a copy of these safety instructions to
the new owner.
Should you lose or misplace this manual, a copy can be obtained by downloading one from the GTO web site
(www.gtoaccess.com), by contacting GTO Access Systems, LLC., at 3121 Hartsfield Road, Tallahassee, Florida
32303 or by calling 1-800-543-4283 and requesting a duplicate copy. One will be provided to you free of charge.
Required Safety Precautions for Gates
Install Warning Signs
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO Gate Operator. The
Warning Signs included must be installed on both sides of each gate. Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed
for pedestrian traffic.
Entrapment Protection
Dual Sense Technology™ provides entrapment protection, when properly adjusted. Since all installations are different,
you may need to add photo beams or sensing edges to help prevent damage to vehicle or other items that could be hit by
a moving gate.
MMSL2000BE Instruction Manual
vii
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against Entrapment
The gate operators utilize Dual Sense Technology™ entrapment protection. Dual Sense Technology™ is built into every
operator and provides redundant methods of entrapment protection for open and close gate directions.
In addition to Dual Sense Technology, every operator controller has provisions for the connection of additional
obstruction detection devices such as sensing edges and photo beams.
Since all installations are different, you may need to add photo beams or sensing edges to help prevent damage to
vehicle or other items that could be hit by a moving gate.
These devices may be located where there is an increased risk of obstruction.
One or more edge sensors may be located at the lead-ing edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and outside
of a vehicular swing gate system.
Wiring to sensors must be located and arranged so the wiring between the sensor and the gate operator is not
subjected to mechanical damage.
A wireless sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for obstruction protection
functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals is not blocked or impeded by building structures, natural
landscaping or similar objects.
As specified by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325, vehicular gate operators shall;
Have provisions for, or be supplied with, a minimum of two independent entrapment protection means for each
entrapment zone.
Operate only after installation and enabling of the minimum number of acceptable entrapment protection means.

Install chain brackets at each end of the gate on the inside
(operator side) of the gate (see Overview Illustration, page.
4). Position the tops of chain brackets no more than 6” above
the bottom corners of the gate frame and secure with U-bolts
(see Illustration B). The chain brackets will work on gate
frames 13/4” to 21/2” in diameter or square tube gates. The
U-bolts provided will work on 2” diameter pipe. Larger gate
sizes will require larger U-bolts.

Insert a quick release
pin into the center slot
in each of the chain
brackets (see Illustration C). Tie a string to the end of each quick
release pin so that the string is tight between the two chain
brackets (the string will be used to align the operator). The string
should be 7”-10” from the ground (see Illustration E). The chain
brackets can be adjusted up or down on the gate to achieve the
proper height. The goal here is to set the height of the operator
so that when the housing is in place it will clear the ground by 1”
to 4” (see Illustration E).

small flat head screwdriver. Adjust the sensitivity from the MINIMUM position up to the point where the
gate operates without obstructing from its own weight or the wind conditions in your area.
NOTE: You may need to increase the stall force in cold weather due to increased resistance from gate
rollers, sprockets and chain. However, the adjustment must remain as near to minimum as possible and
when the weather improves decrease the setting to the appropriate position.
CAUTION
For safety reason the Dual Sense Stall Force setting on the Mighty Mule control board comes from the factory set at

Check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting
it. You may have to try different locations before permanently
mounting the receiver. The receiver range can vary from 50 to
100 feet depending upon weather, topography, and external
interference.
Mount the receiver:
• Ensuring a line-of-sight between transmitter and antenna.
• At least 3 feet away from AC voltage.
• As high as possible for optimum range.
• DO NOT mount receiver upside down.
• DO NOT mount receiver on metal fence or post (this will
decrease signal range). If attaching receiver to metal
fence, you should mount receiver on a piece of wood
attached to the fence (see illustration).
• Make sure antenna is higher than other metal objects.
The receiver cable:
• Cable length is 20 ft. (receivers with longer cables are
available as special order items; call the GTO Sales
Department).
• NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the receiver cable through PVC conduit to protect it
from damage.
• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing AC wiring.
This device complies with FCC rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following conditions:
1.This device may not cause harmful interference.
2.This device must accept an interference that may cause undesired operation.
Transmitter distance may vary due to circumstances beyond our control.
NOTE: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by unauthorized
modifications to this equipment. Such modifications could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
