Choosing the Right Motor
There are 6 main steps to follow when choosing the right motor for you. These include:
Step 1: Power Output
There are two types of electric gate motors, including 24v and 230v. The type of electric gate motor you require will depend on the amount of time your gate is in operation. For example, if the gate systems are used less than 15 times a day, you'll be better with the 230v electric motor; however, if your gate systems are operating over 15 times per day, then a 24v electric motor is best suited for you.
Step 2: Gate Dimensions
Different motors are designed to be used for different gate dimensions, for example, the width of the gate and the weight. Therefore, it is always a good idea to note own the weight and width of your gates, and compare them to the ones recorded by the gate manufacturers.
Step 3: Geometry Requirements
On-gate motors are usually linear rams, and this is what forms the geometry, which makes the gates open and close. There are many different dimensions, and it is important to familiarise yourself with them. For more information or advice, please don't hesitate to get in touch with a professional.
Step 4: Linear Ram Installation
To decide whether you need to mount the motor bracket to the post, you need to work out the following measurements:
- Width of the pillar
- Distance from the hinge to the pillar
Step 5: Installing Gate Stops
You do require a gate stop for most automated gates. They are used to let the motor know that the gate has reached the end of the opening and closing cycle. However, if you have a sloping driveway, you won't be able to have a gate stop installed.
Step 6: Choosing your Motor
If you are struggling to choose your motor, don't worry, because that's what we're here for. Here at Automation and Security, based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, we will be able to give you all the advice and tips you need for choosing your motor.
