GENERAL DESCRIPTION
1. General Description
The VANTAGE linear swing gate motor, available in two models with actuation strokes of
400mm and 500mm, respectively, has been designed to automate a wide variety of swing
gates, from single light-domestic gates to heavy industrial double swing gates.
The fail-safe and fully-redundant Position and Collision Detection System has been designed
and tested to set the standard in safety of operation and to provide an unparalleled level of
reliability and durability in operation.
The gate Travel Limits are managed by a sealed double-redundant opto-electronic system
that has been designed not only to ensure ultra-reliable operation, but also to ensure precise
position and trajectory control. This enables very accurate and reliable collision detection to
ensure safe operation even under trying conditions.
This guide covers the mechanical installation of your new VANTAGE swing gate operator.
SECTION 1
VANTAGE swing gate operators can be installed on both inward- and
outward opening swing gates. Please see the relevant sections for each
type of installation, paying attention to any site preparation that needs
to be made before the operators are installed.

3.4. Lightning Protection
The V-Series Controller utilises the same proven surge protection philosophy that is
used in all our products. While this does not guarantee that the unit will not be damaged
in the event of a lightning strike or power surge, it greatly reduces the likelihood of
such damage occurring. The earth return for the surge protection is provided via the
mains power supply earth. In order to ensure that the surge protection is effective, it is
essential that the unit is properly earthed.

PREPARATION OF SITE
6. Preparation of Site
6.1. General Consideration for the Installation
Always recommend the fitment of additional safety equipment such as safety edges
and Safety Beams (i5 or Photon), for additional protection against entrapment or
other mechanical risks.
Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation.
Check that enough space is available for the gate operator with the gate in the
required open position (see Figure 6).
If the swing gate leaf is longer than 3 metres, ensure that an electric lock can be
fitted.
For security reasons, never fit an operator on the outside of the gate, where the
public has access to it (refer to the instructions for an Outward-opening swing gate).
Never run an operator directly off the 12V battery.
Install the gate operator only if:
• It will not pose a hazard to the public
• There is sufficient clearance to a roadway and/or public thoroughfares
• The installation will meet all municipal and/or local authority requirements once
completed
• The gate mass, leaf width, wind loading and application is within the operator
specifications
• The gate is in good working order, meaning:
• that it swings freely;
• does not move on its own if left in any position;
• each gate leaf is strong and rigid;
• Once installed, there is sufficient clearance between moving parts during operation of
the gate to reduce the risk of personal injury and/or entrapment
SECTION 6
• It is recommended that Pushbuttons and Keyswitches, if fitted, be positioned in such
a way that the gate is in line of sight of the user

6.3.1. Pillar maximum
The maximum allowable distance measured from the centre of the gate hinge to the edge
of the pillar.
6.3.2. Wall minimum
This value denotes the minimum amount of space needed to install the operator and is
measured from the side wall to the gate when the gate is in the open position.
6.4. Side Wall Limitation - Inward Opening
Figure 7 shows the side wall limitations for an Inward opening gate. The operator
must be installed in accordance with these limitations. If the wall minimum cannot be
achieved, consider using an outward swing configuration.

Figure 8 shows the pillar hinge depth limitation for an Inward opening gate.
An operator must be installed in accordance with these limitations to ensure that it does
not interfere with the operation of the gate during movement. The hinge depth of the
gate on the pillar, needs to be checked against the pillar maximum values in Table 9
to determine if the installation is possible. If the hinge depth of the gate is excessive,
the gate may have to be relocated on the pillar to achieve the required pillar maximum
values.

CRITICAL INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
8. Critical Installation Checklist
The following is a list of critical requirements that must be adhered to in order to ensure
reliable operation of your VANTAGE operator(s):
• Ensure that the Wall Bracket is securely anchored
• Make sure that the operator’s maximum stroke is being utilised
• Only use V-Series cable for the installation
• Leave a 350mm long loop in the cable
• Fit an electric gate lock if the leaf width is greater than 3 metres
• Ensure that the opening and closing angles conform to the installation guidelines
• Ensure that your gate and operator(s) are equipped to deal with Wind Loading
(refer to the Table 6 and 7 on page 14)
SECTION 8
Never run the operator directly from the battery! Doing so will cause
damage to the operator. Only run the operator from the V-Series
Controller.
