PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Thank you for purchasing the GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 gate operator system. When correctly installed and properly
used, your GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators 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 GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Automatic Gate Operators.
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators are designed for installation on a pull-to-open dual leaf gates (gates
that open into the property). By purchasing an accessory bracket, the GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators can
accommodate push-to-open dual leaf gates (gates that open out from the property). The gates must not exceed 16
feet in length (per leaf) nor weigh more than 650 pounds (per leaf) (please see Technical Specifications on page 11).
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron
gates. Use on solid (wood) gates is not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind. If the
wind is strong enough, the operator will obstruct and stop.
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators accommodate extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons,
automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed GTO/PRO®
Accessory Catalog) are available.
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators feature adjustable obstruction sensing. This safety feature makes the gates
stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when they come in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory setting;
meaning the gates will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before they stop and reverse direction.
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operators also have an adjustable auto-close feature. After the gates reache the fully
open position, they can be set to remain open up to 120 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter
button at any time after the gates open fully will cause them to close immediately. OFF is the factory setting; meaning
the gates will stay open until you press the transmitter (or keypad, etc.) again.
Please call GTO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for more information about our GTO/PRO®
professional line of gate operators and accessories. Our Sales Department will be glad to give you the name and phone
number of a GTO/PRO® dealer near you.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO INSTALL YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR:
Read these instructions carefully and completely to become
familiar with all parts and installation steps.
You must read the installation manual for detailed instructions on
gate operator safety and proper use of the gate operator.
iii
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.
Precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this
warning symbol. The symbol identifies conditions
that can result in damage to the operator or its components, serious injury, or death.
Because GTO automatic gate operators are only part of the total gate operating system, it is the responsibility of the
consumer to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended use.
To Manually Open and Close the
Gate, Follow the Procedure Below:
CAUTION: The gate will move freely and uncontrolled when the gate operator is
remove from the gate. ONLY disconnect the operator when the control box power
switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For The Consumer
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 and/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. Swinging gates must not open into public access areas.
4.
The gate and gate operator installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
1.
Verify the operators are proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use and the proper class rating.
2.
Make sure the dual gate has been properly installed and swings 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 (see page 1).
4.
This gate operator is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for
pedestrian use (see page 6).
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.
6.
Pay close attention to the diagram below and be aware of these areas at all times.

Entrapment Zones for a proper Pull-To-Open installation:
Zone 1 – leading edge of the gate and the fence post.
Zone 2 – between the gate and the gate post.
Zone 3 – the path of the gate.
Zone 4 – the space between the gate in the open position and any object such as a wall, fence, tree, etc.
Zone 5 – pinch points between the opener and gate or post.
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) provide additional protection
against entrapment.
4.
If push buttons or key switches are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located at least 10 feet from
any moving part of the gate (see diagram below). 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.

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 the 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" 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 the
remote controls away from children and unauthorized users; store controls where children and unauthorized users do
not have access to them.
6.
KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Always turn power to operator OFF before performing any
maintenance. Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and apply silicone spray to it at least once per month.
7.
Service the gate and gate operator regularly. Grease hinges, spray push pull tube with high quality silicon spray and
replace the battery every 3-5 years.
8.
To operate this equipment safely, YOU must know how to disconnect the operator for manual gate operation
(see page 1). If you have read the instructions and still do not understand how to disconnect the operator, contact the
GTO Service Department.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against
Entrapment
As specified by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate operators shall have an inherent
entrapment sensing system, and shall have provisions for, or be supplied with, at least one independent secondary means
to protect against entrapment. The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 utilizes Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment sensing
system as the primary type of entrapment protection. Also, the GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 has provisions for the connection of
Type B2 protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
1. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (e.g., safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (51.8.4 [i]):
A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and
outside of a vehicular swing gate system.
B. A hard wired 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.
C. 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 obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall
function under the intended end-use conditions.

ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 30A.1.1A)
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Operatosr are designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds when the gate comes in
contact with an obstruction. Additionally, these operators are equipped with an audio entrapment alarm which will
activate if the unit obstructs twice while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for a period of 5 minutes, or until
the operator receives an intended signal from a hardwired entry/exit source (e.g. push button control or keypad) and
the gate returns to a fully open or fully closed position. Turning the power switch on the control box OFF and back
ON will also deactivate the alarm. Wireless controls such as transmitters and wireless keypads will not deactivate the
alarm.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Required Safety Precautions for Gates
Install Warning Signs
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO/PRO® 3000/3200
Operators. Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed if pedestrian traffic is expected near the vehicular gate. We
recommend using the GTO Bulldog® Pedestrian Gate Lock (Call the GTO Sales Department) for controlled access.

Entrapment Protection
GTO’s inherent obstruction settings, even when properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury in
some circumstances. For this reason, safety devices such as safety edge sensors (or photoelectric sensors), which stop and
reverse gate direction upon sensing an obstruction, are suggested for enhanced protection against entrapment.

Installation Overview
Pull-to-Open Gates (Gate Opens into the Property)
The diagram shown below is an example of a pull-to-open installation on a chain link fence and dual gates. Mounting the
operators on a masonry column requires special procedures; see Column Installation Information on page 39 if you intend
to mount the operators on columns. Furthermore, if you have push-to-open gates, you will need to purchase two (2) pushto-open brackets (see Accessory Catalog) to properly configure your system. See Push to Open Installation on page 33
before proceeding.

Preparation of the Gate
Step 1
The gates must be plumb, level, and swing freely on
their hinges. Wheels must not be attached to the gates.
The gates must move throughout their arc without
binding or dragging on the ground. Note that gates
over 250 lb. should have ball bearing hinges with grease
fittings.
Horizontal Cross Member
Step 2
The fence posts must be secured in the ground with
concrete so they will minimize twist or flex when the
operators are activated. We recommend you position
the operators near the centerline of the gates to keep
the gates from twisting and flexing. The addition of
horizontal or vertical cross members (if they are not
already in place) to provide a stable area for mounting
the gate brackets is also important.
Vertical Cross Member
12
Installation of Mounting Hardware
The position of the post bracket determines the leverage and efficiency of the operator. The post bracket position also sets the
clearance between the operator and gate in the open and closed positions (minimum 2 inches).
The curved design of the post bracket works well for installations on round and square fence posts. Because the post bracket
carries the entire thrust of the active operator, bolts that completely penetrate the fence post must be used.
On wooden posts, place a metal plate or washer
(not supplied) between the nuts and the fence
post to prevent the thrust of the operator from
pulling the bolts and washers out of the wood.

IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post pivot bracket assembly, be sure that the position allows
for minimum 2 inches of clearance between the gate and the operator in both the open and closed positions, as shown in the
diagrams below. This clearance will give the operator the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the gate and
more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.
Step 6
When you feel that you have the best position for the post pivot bracket in the open position, insert the 5/16" x 1-3/4" bolt
through the aligned holes of the post bracket and post pivot bracket to hold it in place. Remove the clevis pin from the front
mount and while supporting the gate operator, swing the gate and gate operator to the closed position. With the gate and gate
operator in the closed position check the clearance and be sure that the gate operator is not binding at the post pivot bracket.
If you don't have 2 inches of clearance or the gate operator is binding on the post pivot bracket, remove the 5/16" x 1-3/4"
bolt and readjust the pivot bracket until you can achieve these important clearances.
With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement, reattach the operator to the gate
bracket in the open position and recheck the gate operator level and make sure the brackets are clamped securely.

Installing the Second Operator
Step 12
Install the SLAVE operator on the remaining gate leaf by repeating Step 3 through Step 11, starting on page 14.
After you have mounted the SLAVE operator, proceed to Installing the Closed Position Stops on the next page.
17
Installation of the Closed Position Stops
The GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 Gate Operators firmly hold the gates in the closed position using
positive stops. The positive stops help stabilize the gate leaves in the closed position. To further
enhance stability and security, we strongly recommended using an optional GTO/PRO® Automatic
Gate Lock (see Accessory Catalog) with your dual gate.
IMPORTANT: You need
to determine which side of the
driveway you will mount the
control box. From this point on
the gate and gate operator on the
same side as the control box will
be referred to as the MASTER
gate and gate operator. The gate
and gate operator on the opposite
side of the driveway from the
control box will be referred to
as the SLAVE gate and gate
operator.

Powering the System
Installation of the Transformer
IMPORTANT:
•
The transformer is designed and intended for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged only into
an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover or housing (available at local electrical supply stores)
must be used.
•
All low voltage wire used with the GTO/PRO® 300/3200® Gate Operator must be 16 gauge dual
conductor, multi-stranded, direct burial wire (see page 23 and the Accessory Catalog). Do not run
more than 1000 feet of wire.
•
If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an ac power source, you will need to use from 10 to 30 watts
of solar charging power to charge the battery (see Accessory Catalog). Refer to the Solar Panel and
Gate Activity chart below.
OPTIONAL Solar Panel and Gate Activity
Winter Ratings
The table and map illustrate
the maximum number of
gate cycles to expect per day
in a particular area when
using from 10 to 30 watts of
solar charging power. (see
Accessory Catalog). The
figures shown are for winter
(minimum sunlight) and do not account for
the use of any accessory items. Accessories
connected to your system will draw
additional power from the battery.

Step 2
Select the electrical outlet into which you will plug the transformer.
Measure the distance from this outlet to the control box following the
path where the wire will be laid. After you have measured how much
wire is needed, cut the wire to the appropriate length. (Not more than a
1,000 feet).
22
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LOW VOLTAGE WIRE
The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge multi-stranded, low voltage, PVC
sheathed wire. This particular gauge enables the transformer to provide an adequate charge through the
control board to the battery at distances up to 1000 ft.
DO NOT use telephone wire or solid core wire. Unlike multi-stranded wire, these types of wire are
inadequate for use with your gate operator system. Telephone wire and solid core wire do not deliver
enough voltage for your gate operator to function and will cause the system to go into a condition known
as "low voltage lockout."
NEVER splice wires together. Splicing permits corrosion and seriously degrades the wire's ability to
carry an adequate current.
12 V Battery
Step 3
Lay the measured length of low voltage wire in a trench following a path from
the selected electrical outlet to the control box. Wires coming up from the
ground should be run through PVC conduit to protect them from lawn mower
blades, weed eaters, and grazing animals. Be sure to bury the wire laid in the
trench.

Your GTO/PRO® 3000/3200 has two Limit Settings
1) OPEN Limit setting: (Gate in the OPEN POSITION / FACTORY SET NOT ADJUSTABLE) The open limit setting is
the fully open position.
2) CLOSED Limit setting: (Gate in the CLOSED POSITION) To achieve optimum closed position, you are required
to complete the following SEVEN STEPS:
Step 1
Confirm that the power switch is in the ON position, and the gates are in the OPEN POSITIONS.
Step 2
Activate your operators by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gates should now be moving from the fully open
positions toward their closing position. Prepare to STOP gate by pressing the entry transmitter button again when the first
gate reaches the desired closed position. This step may be repeated until desired close position is achieved. Once the desired
CLOSED position has been achieved, proceed to step 3.
Step 3
With the first gate in the desired closed position. Program the closed limit setting by setting the number 4 DIP switch on the
DUAL MODES switches to the OFF position (if the MASTER gate closed first) or the ON position (if the SLAVE gate closed
first) then PRESS & HOLD the “SET LIMIT" button on the control board for 5 seconds.
Step 4
Press the transmitter button and allow the gates to return to the fully open position. YOUR FIRST GATE’S CLOSED
POSITION LIMIT IS NOW PROGRAMMED.
Step 5
Activate your operators again by pressing the entry transmitter button. Your gates should now be moving from the fully
open positions toward their closing position. The first gate will stop at the spot you just programmed and the second gate
will continue to close until you press the transmitter button again. The optimum CLOSED POSITION for the second gate is
when it closes firmly, without excess tension, against the first gate. This step may be repeated until desired close position is
achieved. Once the desired CLOSED position has been achieved, proceed to step 6.
Step 6
With the second gate in the desired closed position. Program the closed limit setting by setting the number 4 DIP switch on
the DUAL MODES switches to the ON position (if the MASTER gate closed first) or the OFF position (if the SLAVE gate
closed first) then PRESS & HOLD the “SET LIMIT" button on the control board for 5 seconds.

positions, then press and hold the "SET LIMIT" button for 10 seconds. This will clear the memory for the closed limit
Setting Your Personal Transmitter Code
All GTO transmitters are set to a standard code at the factory and are ready to operate your GTO/PRO® 3200 Gate
Operator®. For your safety and security, however, we strongly recommend that you replace the factory setting with your own
personal code. Follow the directions below:
1. Remove the Transmitter Cover
Grasp the sides of the access cover and slide it away from the transmitter button (see
illustration). When the access cover is removed, the battery and the DIP switches will be
exposed. To set a new code, use a small screwdriver to move the switches.
2. Set the transmitter DIP Switches
There are nine (9) transmitter DIP switches; each can be placed in three different positions
(+, 0, –). DO NOT set all the switches in the same position, such as all +, all 0, or all
–. Once the DIP switches have been set to a personal code, replace and close the access
cover.
WARNING: No other adjustments should be made inside the transmitter.

Installing the Receiver
Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting it.
Consider the following when mounting the receiver:
• Standard receiver cable length is 10 feet (receivers with a longer cable are available as special
order items; call the GTO Sales Department). NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the cable through PVC conduit to protect it from damage.
• DO NOT run cable through metal conduit because the receiver signal range will be decreased.
• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing ac wiring.
• DO NOT mount receiver on a metal fence or post; doing so will decrease signal range.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography, and
external interference.
• DO NOT mount upside down.
FCC Regulation

Push to Open Installation
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out from the property.
A Push-to-Open Bracket is required for this type of installation (see
Accessory Catalog). If you have a pull-to-open gate (gate opens into the
property), return to page 14; step 3.
In a PUSH-TO-OPEN installation the operators are installed while the gates
are in the closed position.
Step 1
With the gates closed, adjust the post bracket assembly and the gate
bracket until the operator is level. While holding the operator level,
use C-clamps to temporarily keep the post bracket assembly and
gate bracket in their respective positions on the fence post and gate.

IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the post
pivot bracket assembly be sure that the position allows for maximum
clearance between the gate and the operator in both the open and closed
positions, as shown in the diagrams below. This clearance will give the
operator the most efficient leverage point for opening and closing the
gate and more importantly provides the least possible pinch area.
Step 2

washer and nut.
Two inch minimum
IMPORTANT: If you loosened the clamp on
the post bracket to achieve the optimum position,
tighten it in its new position and recheck the gate
bracket with the gate in the open position (move the
gate bracket and re-clamp it if necessary).

Step 3
With the gate in the fully closed position and the operator retracted, swing the operator to the gate. Mark reference points for
bolt holes on gate cross member through middle of gate bracket slots. The operator must be level. (Some vertical adjustment
is possible by sliding the post bracket assembly up and down.) Drill 3/8" holes into the gate cross member as marked. Fasten
gate bracket to cross member using (2) 3/8" x 3" bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts. Attach the operator to the post

Maintenance & Troubleshooting
If your gate operator does not function properly after it is installed, use this guide
before calling the GTO Service Department.
• On all gates weighing 250 lb. or more, routinely grease the ball bearing hinges at least 4 times a year; more
frequently if the gates are near a coastal area.
• Keeping a few mothballs in the control box will discourage insects from entering it and damaging the control
board.
• Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and apply silicone spray to it at least once per month.
• While oxidation is a normal part of weathering of equipment that is exposed to the elements, we recommend
you apply silicone spray the front and rear mounts to minimize this effect.
If the Operator Does Not Work
Check the Green LED on the Control Board:
IF THE LED IS OFF: This condition indicates a transformer power failure.
1. Test the transformer for voltage with a voltmeter. The acceptable range can be found in the VOLTAGE
LIMITS chart on the next page. If the transformer test shows no voltage, then test the electrical outlet for
voltage. If the outlet test shows voltage, then the transformer is dead and must be replaced. Allow the new
transformer 12 hours to charge the battery before using the gate operator.
2. If the transformer test shows voltage, check the POWER IN terminal block on the control board for voltage.
If the terminal block shows no voltage, look for broken or spliced wires.
Check the Red STATUS LED on the Control Board:
IF THE LED IS ON: but the unit is not working.
1. Check the battery in your transmitter and replace with a fresh one if needed..
2. Verify that the power cable is securely connected.
3. Replace the control board fuse if it is blown (25 ampere fuse only - DO NOT USE
A HIGHER RATED FUSE!).
IF THE LED IS OFF:
1. Make sure the ON / OFF switch at the bottom of the control box is set to ON.
2. Check all connections for looseness and corrosion.
36
If the Operator is Working
The Gate CLOSES Then Opens Again on its Own:
1. Check the position of the mounting brackets and readjust if necessary.
2. Check the gate for binding or hinge damage.
3. Check the position of the stroke adjustment knob.
The Gate OPENS Then Closes Again on its Own:
1. Check the position of the mounting brackets and readjust if necessary.
2. Check the gate for binding or hinge damage.

Column Installation Information
IF THIS OPERATOR WILL BE USED WITH GATES THAT ARE MOUNTED ON
MASONRY, BRICK, OR ROCK (etc.) COLUMNS:
A.
The simplest solution is to install the operator in a push-to-open configuration (requires Push-To-Open Bracket,
see Accessory Catalog). The minimum clearance is easier to achieve and clearance is no longer a problem,
since the operator will be pushing the gate away from the column instead of pulling it toward the column. It
is recommended that you place a steel plate between the operator mounting brackets and masonry surface for
additional strength.
B.
If a push-to-open installation is impossible due to traffic hazards, terrain, etc., another option is to re-hang the
gate. You may hang it on a post, either in the center of the column or at the back corner, or move the gate to the
back corner of the columns.
C.
The most difficult solution is to cut a notch in the column to accommodate the operator and power cable. This
job is NOT for the inexperienced!
