IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, all system designers, installers, and consumers have an
obligation to know the potential hazards associated with improperly designed, installed, or maintained 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 system designer, installer, and 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.
The 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 a total gate operating system, it is the responsibility of the
designer, installer, and purchaser to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended use.
To Manually Open and Close the Gate,
Follow the Procedure Below:
Disconnecting the Operator
1.
2.
3.
Turn control box OFF.
Remove hairpin clip and clevis pin from
front mount.
Pull front mount away from gate bracket.
CAUTION: Disconnect the operator
ONLY when the control box power switch is
OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
The gate can be opened and closed manually
when the gate operator is disconnected.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE SYSTEM DESIGNER
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
This operator is intended for use only on vehicular gates. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate walk-through
gate (see Entrapment Protection illustration on page 6).
3.
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.
4.
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 shall not open into public access areas.
FOR THE INSTALLER
WARNING–To reduce the risk of injury or death:
I. Before Installation
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, and its frequency of use.
3.
Make sure the 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.
4.
Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to manually open
and close the gate by disconnecting the operator (see page 1).
5.
This gate operator is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for pedestrian use (see page 6). 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. Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas.
2.
Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fingers or hands could be pinched.
3.
Installation of additional safety equipment such as safety edges (or photoelectric sensors) is suggested for
augmented protection against entrapment (see page 6).
4.
Determine the best obstruction sensing setting for this installation. The gate MUST stop and reverse on contact with
an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel,
retest the gate operator. Failure to adjust and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury
or death.
5.
Mount access controls away from the gate (minimum distance is 10 feet). The user must have full view of the gate
but be unable to touch it while operating the controls.
6.
Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate operator controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.
2
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
III. After Installation
1.
Review ALL safety instructions with the consumer/end user. Explain the basic operation and safety systems of the
entire gate operator system, including disconnecting the operator for manual operation of the gate.
2.
3.
Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert public of automatic gate operation. Take a
photo of warning signs installed on gate. Record the date of the photo for your reference.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
Leave a copy of the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS section of this manual with the
consumer/end user.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against Entrapment
As specified by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate operators shall have provisions for, or be
supplied with, at least one independent primary and one independent secondary means to protect against entrapment. GTO
gate operators utilize Type A, an inherent entrapment sensing system, as the primary type of entrapment protection. The
GTO/PRO 2000 series gate operators have provisions for the connection of Type B1 and B2 protection to be used as a
secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
1. For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor (Type B1) in accordance with UL 325 (51.8.4 [h]):
A. Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of application.
B. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate
is still moving.
C. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such as the
perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
2. For gate operators utilizing a contact 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 mounted 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 2000 series gate operators are designed to stop and reverse for 2 seconds when the gate comes in
contact with an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors. Additionally, these operators are
equipped with an audio entrapment alarm which will function 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 (e.g., a transmitter
signal) and the gate returns to a fully open or fully closed position.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
Distribute and discuss copies of the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS with all persons authorized to use
your gate.
3.
Always keep people and objects away from the gate and its area of travel.
NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4.
Your automatic gate is not for pedestrian use. If pedestrian traffic is expected near the gate, a walk-through gate
must be installed for this purpose (see page 6).
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.
If push buttons or key switches are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located far enough from it
(at least 10 feet) so the gate cannot be touched while it is in operation. Do not operate any control without watching
the movement of the gate.
7.
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.
8.
It is your responsibility to make sure that the installer posted 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 your
installer or GTO for replacements.
9.
If electric safety edge sensors (or photoelectric sensors) have been installed (see page 6) they should be tested
monthly for proper function.
10.
KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and apply silicone
spray to it at least once per month.
11.
Have your gate operator tested monthly and serviced regularly by an experienced technician. The gate MUST stop
and reverse on contact with an obstruction or when an object activates the non-contact sensors. If these functions are
observed to operate improperly, discontinue use and have operator serviced immediately.
12.
To operate this equipment safely, YOU must receive detailed instructions on disconnecting the operator for manual
gate operation (see page 1). If you feel you have not received full and proper instructions, contact your installer.
13.
Disconnect the operator ONLY when the control box power switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
14.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Required Safety Precautions for Swing Gates
Install Warning Signs
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO/PRO 2000 series gate
operator. Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed if pedestrian traffic is expected near the vehicle gate. We
recommend the GTO Bulldog Pedestrian Gate Lock (see Accessory Catalog) for controlled access.

OTHER MATERIALS YOU MAY NEED BEFORE YOU START THE INSTALLATION:
Depending on the type of gate and fence post, you may need some additional materials/hardware.
Some of these items can be found in the GTO/PRO Accessory Catalog.
• All gates will need a stop post in the open position. This post is not provided. See page 16,
Installation of Open and Closed Position Stops for more information.
• Low voltage wire may be needed. Length depends upon the distance between the transformer
power supply and the control box. See page 19, Powering the System and the Accessory Catalog
for wire and solar charging panels.
• If the gate is more than 1000' away from an AC power source you will need to use at least one GTO
Solar Panel to trickle charge the battery. See the Accessory Catalog.
• The diameter of the fence post should be at least 8" (round) or 6" (square) in order to mount the
post bracket (see page 12). An optional 4” bracket can be used with 4” post, and mounting bracket
adapters must be used with 4" and 6" round posts. (See Accessory Catalog).
• Depending upon the diameter of the fence post, you may need longer carriage bolts than those
provided. Bolts should be at least 1" longer than the diameter of the fence post (see page 12).
• If using thin wall tube or panel gates, see page 14 for recommended reinforcement materials.
• A horizontal or vertical cross member or mounting plate may be needed to mount the operator to
the gate. See page 11.

Preparing the Gate
Step 1:
The gate must be in proper working order, plumb, level and swinging freely on its hinges. Do not use wheels on gate. The
gate must move smoothly and evenly throughout its swing, without binding or dragging on the ground. Gates over 250 lb.
should have ball bearing hinges with grease fittings.
Step 2:
Horizontal Cross Member
The fence post must be strongly secured in the ground with
concrete so it will not twist or flex when the operator is
powered. It is important to position the operator near the
midline of the gate to keep the gate from twisting and
flexing. The addition of a horizontal or vertical cross
member may be necessary (if one is not already in place)
to provide a stable area to which the gate bracket can be
secured.
Vertical Cross Member
For the operator to perform properly, Steps 1 & 2 must
be complete before you go any further with the installation.
11
Installing The Post Bracket Assembly
The position of the post bracket determines the leverage of
the operator and the clearance between the operator and the
gate.
8” Wood Post
6” Wood or Metal Post
The post bracket is designed to work on a flat fence post.
Fence posts must be at least 6” square in order to mount
the post bracket.
NOTE: The best method of attaching the post bracket to
metal post is welding. Round wood posts (no smaller than
8” diameter) may be notched to create a flat surface for
attaching the post bracket.
If bolts are used to mount the post bracket, the bolts must
completely penetrate the fence post. If your fence post is
wider than 8", it will be necessary to use carriage bolts
longer than those supplied. On wood posts use a metal
plate (not provided) between the nuts and post to prevent
the operator from pulling the bolts and washers through the
wood.
Standard Post Bracket (included)
4” Metal Post
6” Metal Post
NOTE: If you have round metal gate posts that are 4” or
6” in diameter, optional mounting bracket adapters are
available, see Accessory Catalog.
The use of optional mounting brackets adapters may
require you to drill a few additional holes in the standard
post bracket depending on your application.
Optional Mounting Bracket Adapters
Step 3:
Close the gate and place your level against
the horizontal cross member. The top of the
level should be in the center of the cross
member and should overlap the fence post.
Scribe a line across the cross member and
fence post. You will use this line to help
determine position of gate and post brackets.
Level
12
Step 4:
Position the post bracket on the fence post with the mounting holes
centered over the scribe line. The post bracket should be flush with the
edge of the fence post closest to the gate (see illustration). Mark the
position of post bracket holes on the fence post.
Step 5:
Drill holes in fence post as marked using a 1/2" drill
bit. Install the post bracket using the 1/2" x 10"
carriage bolts, 1/2" washers, and lock nuts (provided).
Step 6:
Place the rounded ends of post pivot brackets
inside the post bracket. Align the holes in the
post pivot brackets with holes in the post
bracket (see illustration). Insert 1/2" x 33/4" hex
head bolt through post pivot brackets and post
bracket; tighten the nut.

Step 8:
Position rear mount between post pivot
brackets. Place 1/2" washers between
rear mount and post pivot brackets.
Align 1/2" hole in rear mount and
washers with holes in post pivot
brackets. Attach the rear mount to post
pivot brackets using 1/2" x 23/4" bolt
and 1/2" nut. Note: when tightening
the rear mount bolt, leave it loose
enough for the operator to pivot
freely.

Step 10:
Open the gate to the desired position (at least 10º and no greater
than 110º). Position the operator so that the gate bracket just
rests against the gate. Check the clearance between the operator
and the gate. The operator should only make contact with the
gate at the gate bracket. However, there should not be too much
clearance between the operator and the gate, or the operator will
fully extend before it reaches the closed position. See illustration at right for examples of clearance.
Step 11:
Now align spacer and post pivot brackets hole with the
post bracket hole that provides the best clearance. Insert
the 1/2" x 33/4" bolt through holes in post bracket, post
pivot brackets and spacer. When tightening the 1/2" nut,
leave it loose enough so that you can make adjustments
later.
Spacer
Installing the Gate Bracket
NOTE: Rotating the front mount at the end of the push-pull tube will change its length so
that the mount and gate bracket can be properly aligned with each other on the gate at the
best location (i.e. between or on pickets, on braces, mounting plate, etc.).
Step 12:
With the gate bracket clamped in the open position (no more than
110o from the closed position). Detach the operator from the gate
bracket. The mounting holes should be centered over the scribe
line. Drill the 1/2" holes in the gate cross member and attach the
gate bracket using the 1/2" x 23/4" bolts, washers and nuts. Reattach
the operator to the gate bracket. You have now established the
OPEN POSITION of the gate.
15
Installing the Open and Closed Position Stops
The positive stops hold the gate firmly in the open and closed positions. The positive stops also form the boundaries of the gate
operating arc and help stabilize the gate. Moreover, a stable gate helps to maintain the long life of your automatic gate opener
system. To further enhance the stability and security of your gate, install the optional GTO Automatic Gate Lock (see
Accessory Catalog).
Step 13:
With the gate still in the open position, measure approximately 3/4 of the distance to the end of the gate from the
hinges and place a mark on the ground directly under the gate
(refer to the overview illustration below for positioning). You
will install an open-position stop post at this point. The open
position stop post can be made of wood, metal, or concrete.

Mounting the Control Box
Step 16:
Mount the control box using the nylon cable ties
(provided) or another secure mounting method. The
control box must be mounted at least 3 feet above
the ground to protect it from rain splash, snow, etc.,
and at least 3 feet from an ac power source to
prevent electrical interference.
17
Step 17
Make sure the control box power switch is in the OFF
position. Unscrew and remove the control box cover and
slide the battery into position with its terminals to the left (see
illustration). Push battery down until it fits snugly in control
box. Connect the BLACK battery wire to the NEGATIVE
(–) battery terminal. Connect the RED battery wire to the
POSITIVE (+) terminal.
Pay close attention to the color of the wires. If the wires are
connected incorrectly, the control board will be damaged.
Step 18
NEVER insert the battery with the terminals to the right.
Strip approximately 3/16" of insulation from each
wire of the power cable. Twist each exposed wire
tightly (there are five [5] wires inside the power
cable sheath). Remove lock nut from strain relief
hub. Insert strain relief hub and sealing nut (along
with power cable) into hole on bottom of control
box. Thread approximately 4" of the power cable
into the control box and retighten lock nut and
sealing nut until the power cable locks into place.

Powering the System
•
The transformer is intended for indoor use. If the transformer can only be plugged into an outside electrical
outlet, a weatherproof housing or cover (available at electrical supply stores) must be used.
•
Solar power options are available; see Solar Chart on next page.
•
All low voltage wire used for powering the GTO/PRO gate operators MUST be 16 gauge (minimum) dual
conductor, multi-stranded, direct burial wire.
Step 21:
Choose the electrical outlet into which the transformer will be plugged. Measure the distance from the electrical outlet to
the control box, following the path where the low voltage wire will laid (the maximum distance can be no more than
1000 ft.).

NOTE: An operation cycle is one full opening and closing of the gate. The numbers shown in
this chart are for single gate applications, cycles for dual gate applications will be
about half of those with a single gate.
Predicting the exact maximum number of operational cycles at peak load is more of an art form than an exact science. The
above chart illustrates the average maximum number of cycles possible (the “MNC”) in a 24 hour period with a single gate
that is installed so that the motor moves the gate drawing 5 Amperes of current (typical installation on ball bearing hinges).
Please keep the following variables in mind:
1) The MNC for the GTO/PRO 2000 is roughly comparable to most ac powered operators, and the transformer provided
with this operator should handle most high traffic situations. If the battery does not seem to be able to provide the constant
charge required for your application, the addition of the GTO Big Battery Kit (see Accessories on page 44) should provide
ample power to handle any situation. For more information, call the GTO Service Department.
2) If the gate is binding, dragging in high winds, or if ball bearing hinges are not used, it will require more than 5 A to move
it; this will reduce the MNC. Gates weighing less than 1000 lb. may have a higher MNC.
3) The above data is based on a line voltage of 120 Volts from an electrical outlet; if the outlet provides less than 120 Volts
(for example, some rural areas may only provide 108 Volts), it can significantly reduce the MNC (as much as 50%).
4) A fully charged battery has a reserve of 50-100 cycles without requiring a charge. This allows peak loads at several
points during the day, depending upon how much time the transformer has to provide a charge to the battery between
cycles. The transformer is capable of fully recharging the battery in as little as five minutes at optimum conditions.
5) The above chart is based upon an ambient temperature of 40 ºF. Battery performance and speed at which it will recharge
will fluctuate based upon temperature.

Important Information About Low voltage Wire
The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge (minimum) 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 opener 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.
Step 22:
Install low voltage wire (see Accessory Catalog) to connect the control
box to the transformer. This wire should be buried in a trench. Wires
coming from the ground to the control box should be run through PVC
conduit to protect them from lawn mowers, weed eaters and grazing
animals. Do not use telephone wire or any solid core wire. Never
splice wires together!

CONTROL BOARD SETTINGS
DIP Switches
The four DIP switches on the control board match the operator with the type of gate on which it is
installed. For example, gates may pull-to-open or push-to-open. Prior to packaging, the GTO/PRO
2000 series control board was configured for single swing gates that pull-to-open (open into the property). If your gate type matches this configuration, you DO NOT need to adjust the DIP switches;
Proceed to the Potentiometers section on the next page.
NOTE: To change the DIP switch settings, you must turn
the control box power switch OFF; move the switch; then
turn the power back ON. Use a small screwdriver to move
the switches.

AUTO CLOSE (auto close timer): Determines how long the gate
will remain open before it automatically closes. The limits are
OFF to 120 seconds. The factory setting is OFF.
INERTIA: Fine tunes obstruction sensitivity in the opening and
closing modes. INERTIA allows the opener to attempt to push an
obstruction clear of the gate path. When INERTIA is set to MIN
the opener will obstruct quickly (i.e., will attempt to push an
obstruction briefly); when set to MAX, the opener will obstruct
slowly (i.e., will push against an obstruction for a longer period).
The factory setting is MIN.
OBSTRUCT SENS. (obstruction sensitivity): Determines the
amount of force exerted by the gate on an obstruction before the
operator stops and reverses. The gate will exert minimum force
before obstructing when set to MIN. When set to MAX, the operator will exert maximum gate force before obstructing (i.e., the
operator will require greater resistance before stopping and reversing.). The factory setting is MIN.
RCVR
READ WARNING BELOW!
NOTE: Heavy gates and gates with high wind resistance may
require the OBSTRUCT SENS. potentiometer to be set closer to
MAX to prevent the operator from obstructing. Keep in mind,
however, that while you must determine the best setting for smooth
gate operation, you must ALSO determine the lowest possible
setting for safe gate operation.
ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST WHEN ADJUSTING OR
SERVICING YOUR AUTOMATIC GATE OPERATOR!
WARNING!
All three potentiometers were set to minimum at the factory. The OBSTRUCT SENS.
potentiometer MUST be adjusted above the factory setting for your GTO/PRO 2000 series
operator to function properly. If the potentiometer is left at MIN, your gate operator may
"obstruct" (i.e., stop and reverse) as soon as it is activated.
BE SURE TO PROPERLY RETEST THE GATE OPERATOR AFTER MAKING ANY
ADJUSTMENTS; FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR
DEATH.

Setting the Personal Transmitter Code
All GTO transmitters are set to a standard code at the factory and are ready to activate your automatic 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

Mounting the Receiver
Use the transmitter to check the range of the receiver before permanently mounting it.
Consider the following when mounting the receiver:
• 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.
• DO NOT overtighten the mounting screws; the receiver housing could be warped and
the weather seal damaged.
• The receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon weather, topography,
and external interference.
FCC Regulation
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.
25
Setting the Closed Position Limit Switch
Step 29:
Remove the rear cover of the operator to gain access to the limit
switches and the limit switch cams.
IMPORTANT: The inner switch cam assembly is
factory set. Do not attempt to adjust the inner switch
cam. This switch cam is not adjustable; attempting to
move it will cause damage to the operator!
Step 30:
For Pull-to-Open Installations:
The open position of the gate was determined when you installed
the GTO/PRO 2000 on the open gate (page 15, Step 12). The outer
switch cam is used to adjust the CLOSED POSITION of the gate.
The ideal closed position is when the closed position stop plate makes
contact with the fence post just as the operator motor shuts down.
Turn the cam until the desired setting is accomplished. Test adjustments by using transmitter.
For Push-to-Open Installations:
The closed position of the gate was determined when you installed the
GTO/PRO 2000 on the closed gate (see page 32). The outer switch
cam is used to adjust the OPEN POSITION of the gate. The ideal
open position is when the gate makes contact with the open position
stop post just as the operator motor shuts down. Turn the cam until the
desired setting is accomplished. Test adjustments by using transmitter.
NOTE: Some adjustment to the closed position can be made by
disconnecting the operator from the gate bracket and rotating the
push/pull tube to extend or shorten the operator length.
CAUTION: Because
this operator is a
powerful device, it is
extremely important
to properly set the
limit switch. Keep the
transmitter at hand
during this operation
in case you need to
start or stop the
operator to prevent
harm to people or
your gate.

Step 32:
Install warning signs on both sides of the gate (see page 7) using nylon cable ties (provided) or screws.
27
Connecting Additional Safety Devices
The GTO/PRO 2000 series operators are equipped with built-in obstruction sensitivity. These operators are designed to stop
and reverse the gate for 2 seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. However, obstruction sensitivity, even when
properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily injury in some circumstances. To augment protection
against entrapment, GTO suggests using safety edge sensors or photoelectric sensors. When installed, safety edges (or
photoelectric sensors) must be mounted in compliance with Underwriters Laboratories’ safety standard for gate operators,
UL 325. Review page 4 for information about mounting requirements for safety edges ("contact sensors") and photoelectric
sensors ("non-contact sensors").
Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions for information about installing these devices on a vehicular gate.
Make sure the control box power switch is OFF before connecting safety device wiring to the terminal blocks.
Insert the safety device wires into the CLS EDG terminal (located on the FIRST OPERATOR terminal block) for the gate
closing mode. Ground the safety device at the GRN terminal. Connect the safety device wires for the gate opening mode to
the OPN EDG terminal in the same manner.
If you are installing a dual gate system, connect the safety devices wires to the CLS EDG and OPN EDG terminals on the
SECOND OPERATOR terminal block as described above.

Push-to-Open Installation
Determining The Mounting Position of The Post Bracket Assembly
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas! Review IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
A "Push-to-Open" gate opens out from the property. The operator is installed on this type of gate while in the closed (not
open) position. Because every gate installation varies, the push-to-open installation of the GTO/PRO 2000 and GTO/PRO
2200 will need to be customized. In most cases this only requires drilling two new holes in the post bracket.
Step PTO-1:
The operator and brackets are installed on the gate post in the same way as pull-to-open installations. The post bracket is
mounted at the inside edge of the post. The post pivot brackets are attached with one bolt at the pivot point and the
operator(s) is attached at the rear mount. See pages 11-14, Steps 1-9 for details.
Open Position
Step PTO-2:
Find a position for the post pivot brackets where the operator has clearance in both the
open and closed positions and clamp operator into position (see examples of clearance on
page 15; step 10). Mark the point on the post pivot bracket where the 1/2" holes will need
to be drilled. Drill the holes then secure the post pivot bracket using the 1/2" bolt, spacer,
washer and lock nut.

Step PTO-3:
With the gate in the closed position, connect operator to gate bracket assembly as in Step 12 on page 15 and clamp into
position. Mark the point where the gate bracket will be attached to the gate. Drill the holes and mount the gate bracket.
Reattach gate bracket to arm with clevis pin and hairpin clip.
Step PTO-4:
Now go back and follow the instructions for the rest of the installation from Installing the Open and Closed Position Stops
(see step 13-15).
Step PTO-5:
After you have installed the positive stops, the control board must be adjusted to accommodate the push-to-open gate.
Make sure the control box is OFF. Use a small screwdriver to move the PULL / PUSH DIP switch to PUSH. Replace
control box cover. Turn Power switch ON. The control board is now configured to push the gate open.

Step PTO-6:
Press the transmitter to activate the operator and determine the degree the gate opens. If the operator does not shut down
within one-half second of striking the open position stop (or does not contact the stop at all), you must adjust the limit switch
for the push-to-open installation. Turn to page 26 and refer to step 30 for instructions on setting the limit switch.
DO NOT attempt to move the inner limit switch cam. This switch cam is not adjustable; attempting to move it will damage
the operator!

Maintenance and Troubleshooting Guide
Maintenance:
• 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.
• A few mothballs in the control box helps to keep out insects which can damage circuits.
• Apply silicone spray to the push-pull tube at least once per month.
• Test all the safety devices once per month! If they are not working, contact your installer or The GTO Service
Department
Gate force adjustments regulate the amount of force the operator uses to move the gate. If the hinges are in good working
condition, try setting the OBSTRUCT SENS. potentiometer between MIN and MAX. In an area with high winds,
the OBSTRUCT SENS. potentiometer will need to be set closer to MAX.
The operator has a 12 Vdc motor with mechanical limit switches.
To test the motor, put a voltmeter on dc and place the meter leads on the wire connections inside the plastic cover above the
switches. The reading should be at least 11.5 V when the system is active. If it is not, see The control board
section below.
To test the switches, put the meter on Ω (ohms). Place the leads on each of the wires on the switch. You should have an
open circuit. Click the switch and you should have 0.2 . Do this for both switches.
To test the power cable, put the meter on Ω (ohms). At one end of the cable, place the lead on the green wire. At the other
end, place the lead on the green wire and the other wires. The test should yield a maximum of 1.0 Ω on the green
wire, and 0 Ω on the other wires. Test each wire as you have above. If all wires have the proper readings, then the
power cable is not the problem.
NOTE: Inspect the cable for any signs of any punctures. Wires inside the black sheath can be shorted and the cable will
indicate the correct resistance (ohms).
The control board: This is a microprocessor board. The power that runs the gate operator originates from the battery, which
is recharged through the board by a 18 Vac (40 VA; 2.9 A) transformer.
There is one (1) green and one (1) red LED (light emitting diode) on the control board. They are for a quick
reference only. All readings must be measured with a voltmeter!
The red LED serves two purposes. The first is to indicate that the transmitter code is stored (or being stored–see
Setting the Personal Transmitter code, page 24). The second is to show the condition of the battery. If it is
flashing, see the following section on Testing the battery. During normal operation the RED LED is ON.
If the red LED is flashing it indicates the system may have reached low voltage lockout, which means that the unit
does not have enough voltage to operate the system. One of the following problems may exist:
• Incorrect type of wire is connected, or the wrong gauge wire is being used for the distance to the battery
and the number of cycles that you desired. See chart on page 19
• Wires from the transformer or solar panel to the control board are broken or spliced.
• A transformer or solar panel has no output voltage.
• Incorrect number of solar panels, or solar panels connected improperly.
The green LED gives a visual indication that the control board is receiving power from the transformer.
33
The transformer: Two things can cause failure. The first is shorting the leads during the installation, or letting the strands
touch at the terminal on the control board. The second is a static charge (generally associated with a lightning storm
or power outage); use of a surge protector will help protect the transformer against static charges.
Testing the battery: This is a 12 V, 7 Ah battery. The proper way to test the battery is to perform a load test. Place the
voltmeter on dc; put the red probe on the (+) positive terminal and place the black probe on (–) negative terminal.
Activate the unit and monitor the voltmeter. The voltage drop should not be more than 1.0 V.
Note: A loose battery terminal will cause the same symptoms that a bad battery will cause. Terminals should be
secure and corrosion free.
Remote control range: Varies with each installation. (see FCC disclaimer on page 25), the range of this device can vary
from 50 to 100 feet, depending upon weather, topography and outside interference.
Make sure that the receiver is located above metal fences.
Moving the receiver even a few inches can change the range of operation.
Move the receiver as far from the motor as possible to avoid the chance of electrical interference.
Check or change the battery in the transmitter.

Column Installation Information
12" MAX
The GTO/PRO 2000 and GTO/PRO 2200 can be mounted on
any size column, but the gate hinge cannot be more than 12”
from the mounting surface of the post bracket. The edge of
the post bracket must be aligned with the edge of the column
face where the hinges are mounted. If these conditions cannot
be met, and you do not want to pocket the column, call
GTO’s Service Department for alternative solutions..
In column applications, the rear mount of the operator will be
attached directly to the gate bracket without the use of the
post pivot brackets. Use ten 1/2” washers (provided) as
spacers between the rear mount and the gate bracket, 5 on top
and 5 on bottom (see illustration below). Align washers, rear
mount holes and gate bracket holes, then secure with 1/2" x
33/4" bolt and lock nut. When tightening the 1/2" nut, leave
it just loose enough for the arm to swing freely.
