SAFETY INFORMATION
AND WARNINGS
GATE OPERATOR
CLASSIFICATIONS
All gate operators can be divided into one of four different
classifications, depending on their design and usage.
Read the following before beginning to install Linear swing
gate operators:
Class I Residential Vehicular Gate Operator
A vehicular gate operator intended for use in a home of one
to four single family dwellings, or garage or parking area
associated with these dwellings.
1. Read the orange “Safety Instructions” brochure enclosed
with the packet of information. If you do not have one,
please call Linear at 1-800-421-1587 to request one.
Read and follow all instructions.
Class II Commercial / General Access Vehicular Gate
Operator
A vehicular gate operator intended for use in a commercial
location or building such as a multifamily housing unit of five
or more single family units, hotel, retail store or other building
servicing the general public.
2. All electrical connections to the power supply must be
made by a licensed electrician and must observe all
national and local electrical codes.
Class III Industrial / Limited Access Vehicular Gate
Operator
A vehicular gate operator intended for use in an industrial
location or building such as a factory or loading dock area
or other location not intended to service the general public.
4. A minimum of two (2) WARNING SIGNS shall be installed, one on each side of the gate where easily visible.
3. A separate power-disconnect switch should be located
near the operator so that primary power can be turned
off when necessary.
5. Never reach between, through or around the fence to
operate the gate.
6. You must install all required safety equipment.
Class IV Restricted Access Vehicular Gate Operator
A vehicular gate operator intended for use in a guarded industrial location or building such as an airport security area
or other restricted access locations not servicing the general
public, in which unauthorized access is prevented via supervision by security personnel.
IMPORTANT!!
Before installing the gate operator, make sure the gate’s
swing is free and level throughout the entire swing path. If
the gate does not seem to operate properly, it may affect
the operator performance or greatly shorten the life of the
unit. The gate should be designed so that airflow is ample
to prevent wind resistance and drag.
PRE-INSTALLATION
INFORMATION
Before unpacking, inspect the carton for exterior damage.
If you find damage, advise the delivery carrier of a potential
claim.
Inspect your package carefully. You can check your
accessory box parts with the enclosed packing slip for your
convenience. Claims for shortages will be honored for only
30 days from the date of shipment.
Before installing the operator, read this manual completely
to ensure all requirements for proper installation are present. Verify that the voltage to be used matches the voltage
of the operator.
The following contact or non-contact obstruction
detection devices have been approved for use
with Linear slide gate operators as part of a UL325
compliant installation:

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
WIRING SPECIFICATIONS
1.
Select from the chart at the bottom of this page corresponding to the
model, voltage and horsepower rating of your operator.
6.
Connect power in accordance with local codes. The green ground
wire must be properly connected.
2.
The distance shown on the chart is measured in feet from the operator
to the power source. DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM DISTANCE.
These calculations have been based on standard 115V and 230V supplies with a 10% drop allowable. If your supply is under the standard
rating, the runs listed may be longer than what your application will
handle, and you should not run wire too near the upper end of the chart
for the gauge of wire you are using.
7.
Wire insulation must be suitable to the application.
8.
Control wiring must be run in a separate conduit from power wiring.
Running them together may cause interference and faulty signals in
some accessories.
9.
Electrical outlets are supplied in all 115VAC models for convenience
with occasional use or low power consumption devices only. If you
choose to run dedicated equipment from these devices, it will decrease
the distance for maximum run and the charts will no longer be accurate.
3.
When large-gauge wire is used, a separate junction box (not supplied)
may be needed for the operator power connection.
4.
All control devices are now 24VDC, which can be run considerable
distances. 24VAC is available for other devices, such as loop detectors
and photo eyes.
5.
Wire run calculations are based on the National Electrical Code, Article
430 and have been carefully determined based on motor inrush, brake
solenoids, and operator requirements.
10. A three-wire shielded conductor cable is required to connect master
and slave operators. You must use Belden 8760 Twisted Pair Shielded
Cable (or equivalent) only – Linear part number 2500-1982, per foot).
See page 10 for details of this connection, as well as dip switch selection. Note: The SHIELD wire should be connected in both the
master and slave operators.

NOTE: Maximum gate opening
angle is approximately 95 degrees,
depending on gate width. If larger
opening angle is required, nonstandard positioning of the operator and modified articulating arms
will be required. Contact the factory
for pricing and availability.
Use two 3 - 3 1/2” diameter galvanized posts and secure with concrete
footings as shown, length to be determined by local codes, frost line
depth, and soil conditions.
Attach the operator with the U-bolts, side plates and hardware provided. There are four side plates. The 3/16” side plates go on the inside
top of the operator, while the two 1/2” side plates go on the inside
bottom (see the illustration at right). The operator should be positioned
at a level to allow the arm to be installed at mid-height on the gate.
“H” dimension can vary depending on gate construction. Make sure
the posts do not protrude above the operator cabinet.
23” SPACE REQUIRED BEHIND OPERATOR
FOR ARM CLEARANCE WHILE OPENING
IF NONSTANDARD MOUNTING IS NECESSARY,
CONSULT THE FACTORY
Assemble the arm components as shown on page 7.
The operator is intended for installation only on
gates used for vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate access opening. The pedestrian
access opening shall be designed to promote pedestrian usage. Locate the gate such that persons will
not come in contact with the vehicular gate during
the entire path of travel of the vehicular gate.

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
STRING METHOD FOR NONSTANDARD INSTALLATION OF SWING GATE
OPERATORS
Step A: Position the Operator
1. Connect the gate plate assembly onto the gate at the recommended
location for a standard installation (Dimension “W”).
2. Open the gate to its fully-open position.
3. Position the operator parallel to the gate. The distance from the operator output shaft to the gate plate pivot point is shown at right. The
operator should be positioned the same distance from the gate hinge
as the gate plate has been; ie: the “W” dimension.
Step B: Measure the Crank Extension and Link Center to Center
Distances
1. Close the gate.
2. Using a piece of tape, attach a string to the top of the operator output
shaft, at its center. Holding the string taut and using another piece of
tape, hold the other end of the string across the hole in the gate plate.
This distance is Dimension 1. Carefully measure this dimension and
write it down.
3. Open the gate.
4. Pick up the string, while it is still attached at both ends, and pull it taut
again while positioning it directly over the center of the operator shaft,
at Point “B,” and work your way back along the string until you reach
Point “C.”
5. While holding the string taut, measure the distance from Point “B” to
Point “C.” This is the required center to center distance for the crank
extension.
6. Measure the distance from Point “A” to Point “C.” This is the required
center to center distance for the link section.
7. When added together, the distances from Point “A” to Point “C” and
Point “B” to Point “C” should equal the Dimension 1 measurement.
These measurements will be needed when placing an order for special
length crank extensions and links. Also note that the measurements
you have just calculated are center to center only, and are not overall
dimensions, which would also include other attachment hardware, such
as gate arm clamps.
It is also possible that both open and closed limit switches may be activated at either end of gate travel due to the total gate travel required, and
the shape of the limit switches and cams. This problem can be corrected
by carefully bending the limit switch arm slightly and readjusting its cam.
PLEASE NOTE: Your operator may look different when installed.

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
VENT PLUG INSTALLATION
Gear reducers used in Linear gate operators will have solid plugs installed prior to shipment in order to keep the oil inside
from spilling out during shipping. A vent plug has been provided to replace this plug during installation. This plug will look
similar to the ones shown below. Some models may have a vent plug with a breather pin. This pin should be removed after
installing the operator.
OR
TORQUE LIMITER ADJUSTMENT
Before adjusting the torque limiter, make sure the gate is
in good working condition. One person should be able to
move the gate by hand. Be certain the gate moves freely
and without binding throughout its travel. Torque limiters are
set light at the factory. They must be adjusted during installation, preferably after limit cams have been manually set
(see page 9). Adjust the torque limiter tight enough to keep
it from slipping during normal operation.
ADJUSTMENT NUT
LOCKING TAB
To adjust the torque limiter in model SWG:
1. Bend the locking tabs away from the adjustment nut.
2. To increase the output, turn the adjustment nut clockwise one flat, or 1/6 turn, at a time until desired output
is obtained.
To reduce the output, turn the adjustment nut counterclockwise one flat, or 1/6 turn, at a time until desired
output is obtained.
3. Bend the locking tabs up to lock the adjustment nut in
place.

MODEL SWG
SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AND ADJUSTMENTS
Power supply must be of correct voltage and phase.
Always disconnect power from operator before servicing.
Keep clear of gate during operation.
All Linear gate operators are supplied with a power disconnect switch to turn on and off the power supply available to the
operator. Incoming power should be brought into the operator and connected to the labeled pigtails in the disconnect box,
following wiring specifications on page 4. A wiring connections print can be found on the inside cover of the operator.
Proper thermal protection is supplied with the operator. The motor contains a thermal overload protector to protect from
overheating the motor due to overload or high-frequency operation. This overload will reset automatically after the motor
cools down.
LIMIT CAM ADJUSTMENTS
The limit cams are not preset at the factory and must be adjusted for the length and opening angle of the gate the operator
is installed on. The limit switches are activated by a series of rotating limit cams which are attached to the drive shaft. The
operator has also been preset in the right hand operation mode. If the installation requires left hand operation a dip switch
must be flipped (see page 10).
With the gate connected to the gate operator in a mid-travel position, the power disconnect switch turned OFF, and the torque
limiter set loose enough to slip freely, manually move the gate to its fully open position.
Once the gate is in the fully open position, adjust the limit cam for open direction. Set the LSO-1 limit cam so that it has just
triggered its switch.
Once the open limit cam is set, repeat the above process for the close direction, LSC-1.
After finishing the initial limit cam adjustments, reposition the gate to approximately the center of travel. At this time, adjust
the torque limiter as explained on page 8. Turn the power disconnect switch ON, stand clear of any moving parts and press
the OPEN button. Observe the gate as it runs through a complete cycle in both directions, and adjust your limits again if
necessary.If the operator stops during travel, you may need to adjust the open or close current sensor adjustment or the
maximum run timer (see page 12).

NOTE: DO NOT FORCE 270-DEGREE POTENTIOMETERS
BEYOND THEIR NORMAL RANGE OF MOTION
OR DAMAGE MAY RESULT!
Auto Close Timer Adjustment: This 270-degree adjustable potentiometer will signal the operator to close automatically,
provided no open, reversing or obstruction signals are present from the fully-open position. This timer is adjustable from 0
to 124 seconds. This feature is turned on or off using dip switch #1.
Maximum Run Timer Adjustment: This 270-degree adjustable potentiometer will signal the operator to stop running once
it counts down, unless a limit switch is reached or an input is received first. Each time the motor starts, this timer will begin
counting. This timer is adjustable from 15 to 100 seconds. If the timer expires, the unit locks out and the emergency alarm
sounds.
Open Direction Current Sense Adjustment: This multiturn potentiometer is used to calibrate the built-in current sensing
feature for detection of obstructions while running in the open direction.
Close Direction Current Sense Adjustment: This multiturn potentiometer is used to calibrate the built in current sensing
feature for detection of obstructions while running in the closed direction.
Master/Slave Connection Block: This terminal block is used in conjunction with two operators to configure two gates to
open and close together.
Dip Switches:
#1
This switch turns the auto close timer off/on.
#2
This switch is used in conjunction with alarms and flashing lights that may be added to the operator. When the switch
is in the ON position, these devices will start approximately two seconds prior to the operator starting. In the OFF
position, the devices will only work while the operator is running.
#3
This switch is used in conjunction with single-button controls and radio receivers. In the ON position, successive inputs
will cause signals in the order of OPEN-STOP-CLOSE-STOP. In the OFF position, inputs will cause an OPEN signal
unless the gate is fully open, in which case it will signal CLOSE.
#4
This switch determines right-hand vs. left-hand behavior. When looking from inside the protected area toward the gate,
the side of the drive the operator is on determines its hand of operation. In the OFF position, the operator is set for
right-hand.
#5
When turned ON, this switch will allow a one-second delay for solenoid locks to unlock before the motor starts.
#6
In the ON position, the reverse delay is 3 seconds. In the OFF position, the reverse delay is 1 1/2 seconds.
#7
Not used at this time.
#8
This switch is used to set Master/Slave configuration. Operators which are stand-alone or master units should be set
to OFF, while only slave units should have this switch set to ON.

2&4
STOP
Stops the operator. If no stop button is used, a jumper is required across 2&4.
4&6
REVERSE
This function will cause a reversal when the gate is traveling closed and will travel
back to the fully open position. Loop detectors are often wired for reverse.
4 & 50
OPEN
OBSTRUCTION
This function works only while the operator is opening. Any signal to this function
will cause the gate to stop, reverse a short distance, and then stop again. At this
time the auto close timer is disabled, and a renewed input will be required to start
the gate again. Should the gate be restarted and the signal occur again prior to
reaching a limit, the gate will stop again, and this time will sound the emergency
alarm and lock out.
4 & 51
CLOSE
OBSTRUCTION
This function works exactly like the OPEN OBSTRUCTION, except that it will only
work in the closing direction.
4 & 11
SHADOW/HOLD
This function will keep the gate in its fully open position while the signal is present.
This is typically used with a loop and loop detector to keep a large swing gate
open while vehicular traffic is passing through.
24VDC+ & 60
RUN/PRE-START
A 24Volt DC device such as a strobe light or alarm can be wired to these terminals.
Depending on dip switch #2, these devices will either begin three seconds before
the operator starts, or only while the motor is running. (See page 10 for details.)
You must follow all required safety precautions and instructions at all times. Review the safety brochure included with the operator. If any pages are missing or unreadable, contact Linear at 1-800-421-1587 to request
additional copies.
Controls intended for user activation must be located at least six feet (6’) away from any moving part of the
gate and where the user is prevented from reaching over, under, around or through the gate to operate the
controls. Outdoor or easily accessible controls shall have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.
Do not adjust the circuit board current sensing feature too high. It should be adjusted high enough to keep the
gate from falsely triggering the sensing, but no higher than necessary for the gate to operate. Do not defeat
the purpose of this function!

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
CURRENT SENSING ADJUSTMENTS
Because gates vary in construction and may have different force requirements in the open and close directions to move, the
Linear control board has separate Multi-turn potentiometers for adjusting in both directions independently. The adjustment
should be set light enough to maintain minimal force (40 lbs.) should an obstruction occur, but high enough to keep the gate
moving under normal conditions without interruption.
Prior to adjusting the operator current sensing functions, make sure the gate moves freely in both directions. A badly aligned
or poorly maintained gate may cause false triggering of the current sensor. Refer to page 10 when following the instructions below. A factory adjustment tool has been supplied to make these adjustments easier. This tool has been taped to the
control box for your convenience.
CLOSE DIRECTION CURRENT SENSE ADJUSTMENT
When the gate operator leaves the factory, it has been preset for a relatively light gate function and will require additional
adjustment. Begin by starting the gate going closed. If the operator stops and reverses, turn the close direction potentiometer
(see page 10) one turn higher, press the STOP button, and try again. Repeat this process until the gate no longer causes
false tripping of the current sensor. Note that each time the gate operator reverses, the STOP button must be pressed. Next,
turn the close direction potentiometer lower slowly while the operator is running the gate closed until the gate operator stops
and reverses again. From this point, turn the close direction potentiometer higher by 1 1/2 turns for all 115 Volt AC and 24
Volt DC operators, and by 3/4 of a turn higher for all 230 Volt AC operators. Additional fine adjustment by 1/4 turns may be
necessary to eliminate false triggering.
OPEN DIRECTION CURRENT SENSE ADJUSTMENT
Repeat the same process with the open direction potentiometer while running the gate in the open direction. Once this is
done, run the gate through several complete cycles and make sure the gate does not false trip in either direction.
Multi-turn Potentiometer
Remember it is important not to set the adjustment
too high! Doing so will defeat the purpose of the
current sensing as an obstruction detecting feature.
MAXIMUM RUN TIMER ADJUSTMENT
This adjustable potentiometer sets the maximum length of time the motor will run before shutting down. It should be configured
for the time it takes to run the gate fully open or closed, plus an additional 15 seconds. See page 10 for details.
AUTO CLOSE TIMER ADJUSTMENT
This adjustable potentiometer sets the length of time which elapses before the gate operator automatically closes the gate,
from the fully open position, provided no open, reversing, or obstruction signals are present. This feature can be turned on
or off via dip switch selection. See page 10 for details. Do not use the auto close timer without an appropriate reversing
device installed!
MASTER/SLAVE CONNECTION
A three-wire shielded conductor cable is required to connect master and slave operators. You must use Belden 8760 Twisted
Pair Shielded Cable (or equivalent) only – Linear part number 2500-1982, per foot). See page 10 for details of this connection, as well as dip switch selection. Note: The SHIELD wire should be connected in both the master and slave operators. In addition,
you must run power to both the master and slave operators.

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR
INSTALLATION OF MASTER/SLAVE APPLICATIONS
When setting up Master/Slave gate operators, it is best to make adjustments and run each operator individually. To do this,
simply:
a. Set Dip Switch #4 to proper hand of operation (right-hand or left-hand)
b. Set Dip Switch #8 as Master (off)
Run each operator making current sensing adjustments as necessary, as indicated on the Control Board Adjustments page
of this installation guide. When both operators have been adjusted, turn power off, then turn on Dip Switch #8 in the operator chosen as the Slave.
The timer to close and radio/single button behavior are set in the Master operator.
The following selections are set individually:
Current Sensing
Maximum Run Timer
One-Second Lock Release
Three-Second Pre-Start Warning
Right/Left-Hand Selections
SURGE PROTECTOR INSTRUCTIONS
The optional surge protector should be connected
to any inputs that have an accessory connected to
it. This includes the 3-button station, so it must be
connected to 1, 2A and 3 in all cases. The green
wire connected to ground, which is electrically
the same as terminal 4. The red wires connect to
terminals 2A and 24VDC+. This will cause the
2 amp fuse to blow if this section of the module
becomes shorted. With any of the other inputs
connected to the surge protector, if their protection
line becomes shorted due to a surge over the rating
of the module, the corresponding LED on the main
board will remain lit, causing a constant signal to
the controller. If this is found, please replace the
entire surge protector with a new unit.
Do not simply unhook the shorted wire, as this
removes the protection from the circuit that was
saved by the protector in the first place!

SWG OPERATOR INSTALLATION GUIDE
TROUBLESHOOTING
Operator fails to start:
A. If the operator has been running a large number of cycles,
the motor may have gotten hot and tripped the overload.
Allow the motor to cool down and the overload will reset
automatically.
B. Make sure you have power at the master distribution panel
and that the power has not been turned off.
C. The secondary fuse on the control board may have blown.
Replace the fuse (refer to control box parts list on pages
25 [single phase] or 26 [three phase] for part number
information).
Motor operates, but gate does not move:
A. In operators with torque limiters and friction pad clutches,
check for signs of slipping. You can mark the sprocket and
clutch with a yellow or white grease pen and watch for the
lines to move apart if slipping is taking place. Adjust the
torque limiter tighter if this is the problem.
B. Check for broken chain or worn belts.
C. Check all setscrews on pulleys and sprockets and tighten
them if necessary, and check for keys which may have
fallen loose from keyways.
Motor sounds like it is working harder than normal:
A. Make sure the gate is moving freely and without binding
throughout its entire travel.
B. Check the drive chain for obstructions (if the operator has
one).
C. If the operator has an internal brake mechanism, make
sure it is releasing.
Limit switch getting out of time:
A. Check for proper tension on all limit chains to be sure
there is no jumping taking place. Mark one tooth and its
corresponding link and run the gate. If the marks have
moved, the chain is skipping.
B. Check the setscrews in limit cams and limit sprockets for
tightness. In rotary limit boxes, check the rotary limit nut
for sloppiness or stripped threads. Replace if necessary.
Gate stopping part way open or closed
(but no visible obstruction):
A. The control board may have received a false obstruction
input triggered by current sensing set too low. Make sure
the gate moves freely through its entire travel before
adjusting the current sensing.
B. The maximum run timer may have counted down and
expired. This can be caused by having the timer set too
low, if a chain or belt is broken, or if a sprocket or pulley
is slipping. When the timer expires, the gate stops and
an alarm will sound.
C. An obstruction signal from an accessory wired to the
obstruction input may have triggered falsely. Check the
control board for lit L.E.D. indicators for any of the following
inputs: safety, shadow, open obstruction, close obstruction, stop, etc. If any are lit when the operator should be
running, remove all devices hooked to that function and
hook them up one at a time and try to run the operator
until the problem device is found. Refer to page 13 for
details on the control board indicators.
Gate staying open with automatic system:
A. If there are vehicle detectors in your machine which are
set up for reverse, one of your loops or loop detectors may
be sending a false signal. Disconnect the wire harness
and try running the operator.
B. An opening or reversing device may be stuck or malfunctioning. Try disconnecting these devices and hook them
back up one at a time and try running the operator until
the malfunctioning device is found.
C. Make sure the close limit switch isn’t activated. If it is, the
operator will think the gate is already closed.
HOW TO ORDER REPLACEMENT PARTS
Use the part numbers listed on the following pages. Contact your local Linear dealer or distributor to order parts.
1. Supply the model number and serial number of your operator.
2. Specify the quantity of pieces needed and order by part number and name of part.
3. State whether to ship by freight, truck, parcel post, UPS or air express.
4. State whether transportation charges are to be prepaid or collect.
5. Specify name and address of person or company to whom parts are to be shipped.
6. Specify name and address of person or company to whom invoice is to be sent.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMIT:
ACGIH recommends: For oil mists, 5 mg/m3. Local regulated limits may vary.
5. FIRST AID MEASURES
INHALATION: Vapour pressure of this material is low and as such inhalation under normal conditions is usually not a problem. If overexposed to oil mist, remove from further
exposure. Administer artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Keep at rest. Call for
prompt medical attention.
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with large amounts of water until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, get medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: Flush with large amounts of water. Use soap if available. Remove
severely contaminated clothing (including shoes) and launder before reuse. If irritation
persists, seek medical attention.
INGESTION: If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Keep at rest. Get prompt medical
attention.
6. PREVENTIVE AND CORRECTIVE MEASURES
PERSONAL PROTECTION: The selection of personal protective equipment varies,
depending upon conditions of use. In open systems where contact is likely, wear safety
goggles, chemical-resistant overalls, and chemically impervious gloves. Where only
incidental contact is likely, wear safety glasses with side shields. No other special precautions are necessary provided skin/eye contact is avoided. Where concentrations in
air may exceed the occupational exposure limits given in Section 4 and where engineering, work practices or other means of exposure reduction are not adequate, approved
respirators may be necessary to prevent overexposure by inhalation.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: The use of local exhaust ventilation is recommended to
control emissions near the source. Laboratory samples should be handled in a fumehood. Provide mechanical ventilation of confined spaces.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT!
• Always disconnect power from operator before servicing.
• Keep clear of gate during operation.
GENERAL:
Linear gate operators are designed for many years of trouble-free operation and, under recommended operating conditions,
will require only minimal maintenance. To ensure that your unit is ready for operation at all times--and to preclude serious
damage or failure--inspect the unit systematically. Proper adjustments and lubrication should be made as recommended.
LUBRICATION:
Bearings. For models which have pillow block style bearings with greaseable fittings, lubricate at least twice a year with a
lithium complex based, petroleum oil NLGI 2 rated grease. Oilite and precision sealed bearings do not require additional
lubrication.
Motor. Motors have sealed ball bearings and do not require further lubrication. If bearing noise develops after several years
of operation, bearings should be replaced by a motor repair company, or the motor should be replaced if necessary.
Drive Chain and Sprocket (slide gate models only). The main drive chain and sprockets should be inspected for wear,
cleaned, and wiped down with a lightly oiled rag every six months.
Swing Gate Arm (swing gate models only). Check all bolts for proper tension and tighten if necessary. Make sure the arm
folds overextends itself slightly against the overtravel stop to reduce the chance that the gate can be backdriven open. Adjust
the close limit slightly if additional travel is required. Lightly lubricate all pivot points with a light machine oil.
Barrier Gate Arm (barrier gate models only). Check all bolts for proper tension and tighten if necessary. If the arm has
been warped or damaged, replace as necessary.
ADDITIONAL SIX MONTH PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE:
1. For operators which utilize torque limiting clutches, check
for proper tightness. If there appears to be dust from wear
on the pads, inspect the pads and replace if necessary.
If the clutch cannot be adjusted tightly enough to move
the gate without slipping, the pads must be replaced.
2. For operators with V-belts, inspect for wear and replace
as necessary. Check for proper tension and adjust if
required. Check all pulley setscrews for tightness and
tighten if necessary.
3. For operators with internal chain drives, inspect chain
and sprockets for wear and replace if necessary. Check
for proper tension and alignment, and adjust if required.
Check all hub sprocket setscrews and tighten if required.
4. Check limit switches and limit actuators (cams, limit nuts,
etc.) for wear and replace as required. In rotary limit
switch assemblies, wipe the limit shaft clean and apply
a light coating of dry lubricant.
6. In operators which have a disconnect handle, inspect disconnect handle for proper function and lubricate if necessary. Use a lithium based grease on all moving parts.
7. Inspect all nuts and bolts for proper tightness and tighten
as necessary.
8. Check all reversing devices for proper function. Inspect
all contact edges for wear and replace if required. Check
photo-eyes for proper alignment and function.
9. Check current sensing for proper adjustment when finished
with inspection and maintenance.
10. Inspect the installation area. Are all the warning signs intact
and visible? If they are missing or need replaced, contact
Linear. Be sure there are no control stations mounted
within reach of the gate. Review safety literature with the
customer and advise them to remove any such stations
found.
5. For operators with magnetic brakes, check for proper
adjustment. Brake disc must run free when the brake
is engaged. For brake assemblies other than C-face
style, the brake should be adjusted so that the solenoid
plunger throw is between 3/8” to 1/2”. Too much throw
will damage the solenoid. If the solenoid emits a loud
buzzing sound when the motor is run, the brake must
be adjusted.
- 29 -
For slide and swing gate operators, you must inspect
the gate for proper operation. The gate should move
easily without binding through its entire travel. If the
gate does bind, adjust or fix as required. Failure to
keep the gate in good working condition will have
adverse effects on the operator.
