0.07.B.0047 D5-Evo Brochure-21Sep2012-CT

They say you can't improve upon perfection. Well, they obviously
haven't seen the D5-Evo.
One of the most durable and reliable operators ever made, the
legendary D5 is renowned the world over. Many years later, old
'tried and tested' gets perfected. We borrowed what we learned
from the D10 and applied it to the D5-Evo.
Incorporating a 12V version of the D10 controller, the D5-Evo
also offers a wide range of useful features, which includes
ChronoGuard timer functionality (a world first).
Faster, smarter and easier to set up, old faithful even got a
facelift and now looks more like his D10 cousin.
Hard as nails and loyal to the end, you can sleep easy, knowing
that our D5-Evo is on guard.
Battery backup
We pioneered power failure protection in gate motors. So in line with all our other operators,
the D5-Evo carries on guarding your entrance even when the lights go out.
All important speed
The original D5 made a mark for itself being a quick operator opening the gate swiftly when
you arrive at your entrance. The D5-Evo is now that little bit faster, opening your average four
metre gate in less than twelve seconds, adding even more security and convenience.
Open it the way you like it...
Rapid opening but a more tempered closing just in case a loved one is in the way, that’s the sort
of sophistication in motor control you can expect from the D5-Evo. Added to this, you can vary
the acceleration and deceleration of your gate and make it move so smoothly it will do so for
many years to come.
Pushes like a mule
Such a compact package but such a potent push force, it will reliably move almost any gate
weighing up to 500kg and do it for a very long time.
Wide awake all the time!
Incorporating the tried and tested DOSS position control system of its predecessors, the D3
and D5, the D5-Evo moves accurately open and closed, stopping in just the right spot each
and every time. It’s also wide awake to any obstruction that might cross its path, ensuring safe
and sensitive anti-crushing protection.
It will turn heads
The D5-Evo takes on a new and more attractive look compared to the original D5.
It’s nice to know that even your trusty gate guard will turn heads.
Plug and play
The LCD-based controller makes child’s play of setting up the gate.
It is literally plug and play - the D5-Evo’s controller does all the thinking for you.
It’s got it all
What a pleasure to click through an almost endless list of really useful features - from multiple
Modes of Operation, Gate operating parameters, Pillar Light control with pre-flash, Alarm
functions, Positive Close Mode and Real Time Clock and Calendar to enable time-based
features - to helpful diagnostic feedback. It just stops short of making the coffee!
Forever yours
We know that this compact companion will serve
you well – year, after year, after year. So just like all
other CENTSYS products, your beautiful
D5-Evo operator also comes with an industryleading 24 month warranty for added peace of mind.
Alarm features (a world first)
Burglars have some nifty techniques to get into
your home. Fortunately, criminals can't outsmart the
D5-Evo. An Ambush Alarm will alert your
security company if the opening or closing beams
are interrupted for a predefined, but adjustable,
time. Similarly, a Break-in Alarm will go off if
the closing beam outside your house is
interrupted. Their gig is up.
1. Requires gate safety beams to be installed
Operate wirelessly, thanks to
Besides its code-hopping technology offering the
highest level remote control security, this
multichannel and multi-user CENTSYS onboard
receiver allows for a multi-button remote to operate
any combination of the system inputs, such as Gate
trigger, Pedestrian opening, Holiday Lockout, etc.

ChronoGuard timer technology (a world first)
The D5-Evo is so advanced that it no longer needs humans to look after it. With the CENTSYS ChronoGuard timer technology
onboard, many of the D5-Evo's features can be set to operate automatically or be time-barred at any time you choose.
Its built-in Real Time Clock and Calendar allows you to set up different exclusions, which can cater for public holidays, special
Time-periods, etc.
Once you’ve set up the D5-Evo’s ChronoGuard using the intuitive LCD screen on the controller, you’ll start feeling particularly
redundant. For instance:
Why not automatically have your Pillar Lights switch on when the sun goes down?
Let the D5-Evo take control. With ChronoGuard timer technology this is easy to set up and
you’ll never have to worry about it again.
Better still – automatically time-activate the Holiday Lockout feature when you go to bed, ensuring
that only specific, authorised remotes will be able to open the gate while you’re sleeping, keeping
teenagers at home and unwanted ‘visitors’ out.

ChronoGuard gives you the ability to time-bar specific CENTSYS code-hopping remote controls.
This gives you the flexibility to control when specific remote control holders can open your gate.
For example, your domestic staff may be given access to your property during the week, but on
weekends you may prefer to limit their access to your property.
ChronoGuard technology allows for almost unlimited time-based functionality, all of which is very simply set up on the controller
via the intuitive menu system and LCD user interface. The following functionality is available:
Time-activate many of the physical inputs and outputs of the controller (see table below)
Time-bar many of the physical inputs and outputs of the controller, as well as particular remote buttons learned into the
onboard receiver (see table below)
The Real Time Clock and Calendar timer has the following flexibility:
It supports 100 Time-periods, that may be set according to:
Weekdays (M + T + W + T + F) #
Any day of the week (M, T, W, T, F, S, S)
Weekends (S + S)
Every day of the week (M + T + W + T + F + S + S)
Special calendar events (family holiday, etc.) occurring on any date until the year 2100
Annual calendar events (New Year’s Day, etc.)
Allows for multiple Time-periods to be set during a 24-hour period
The Real Time Clock and Calendar timer is backed up for at least one hour to maintain the current time and date in the event
that all power is removed from the controller
