Gate Operator Accessories

Accessories to Gate Operators:

Loops and Loop Detectors:


These devices are perfect for detecting vehicle traffic while on top of the loop. Designed to open a closed gate, keep an open gate open, or reverse a closing gate to full open, loop detectors will provide both safety and access for vehicles. Wired to the swing or slide gate operator, the detector can be adjusted for frequency and sensitivity. Loops (sold separately) are installed in the pavement below the vehicle and wired to the detector.

Battery Back-up:


Designed for safety and security, a battery back-up can be installed in the operator to allow functionality when the power goes out. The back-up unit will sense the loss of power and respond with closing the gate (fail secure) or open the gate (fail safe). Larger systems will provide repeated yet limited operation for opening and closing the gate after a power loss.

Gooseneck Stands:


These stands mount your keypad, card reader, or any other control device making it easier to approach and operate. The gooseneck stands mounts to the concrete with the use of anchors (sold separately) or may be set in a concrete footing.

Three Button Stations:


The simplest means to remotely activate a gate operator, a three-button station can be used to open, close or stop the gate (weather enclosures sold separately). These devices are perfect for manually operating the gate while in view. These devices are available in a single and two button configuration.

Keyed Switch:


Perfect for installation both inside and outside the gated area. Weather tight enclosures available, these devices provide those with a key to open and close the gate.

Magnetic Locks:


For use on swing and slide gates, these devices can provide up to 1,300 pounds of holding force. Perfect for outdoors use with various brackets for mounting.

Photoelectric Cell:


To meet compliance with the UL325 Code, these devices are capable of detecting vehicle and pedestrian traffic, mitigating injury to the public. With a 30’ range, the cell will detect anything which crosses its path. When its path is broken, the cell will send a message to the operator. Power is necessary at one end of the opening to the detector while a reflector is installed at the other end.

Infrared Detector:


To meet compliance with the UL325 Code, these devices are capable of detecting vehicle and pedestrian traffic, mitigating injury to the public. With a 75’ range, the infrared detectors will detect anything that crosses its path. This device is mounted at both ends of the opening and wired for power and controls. When its path is broken, the detectors will send a message to the operator, opening the gate.

Seven-day timer:


This device is installed in your gate operator in order to and close a gate at a specified time each day of the week. Wired to the operator, you may program the time for the gate to open and then close for a seven-day cycle. Please note that this device should only be used in with pedestrian and vehicle safety devices.
