Extra Heavy Duty Discreet Underground System
Reliability & Durability
The discreet extra heavy duty 24V DC motor is a powerful unit built from all metal components including its powdercoated foundation box and stainless steel top plate, internally the motor is constructed of all metal gears with a thick and strong motor output drive.
Designed in Australia, the extra heavy duty motor is for underground installations to cater for installs where there is no space above ground for mounting a motor or for installs where the user does not want the motor above ground. Furthermore it is highly flexible in its installation methods allowing for multiple diffrent orientations and positions.
Thanks to its all metal gears this Tough and Robust system can handle large gates up to 3m width or 200kg in weight each gate.
Drainage and Conduit Holes
With a drainage hole on either side of the foundation box it can be easily plumbed to to a pit or storm water to ensure the box is never filled with water. There is also a higher position hole for the cabling from the control box to the motor.
Powder Coated Arms and the Manual Override System
The powdercoated steel linking arm which connects the motor output shaft to the drive channel and allows operation of the gate by the pivot motion.
This is achieved with the supplied bearing gliding through the powdercoated drive channel, furthermore to ensure compatibility regardless of the gate to ground clearance height three different choices of bearing height adjuster are supplied.
The easy to use manual override can be used from either side since the gate motor is a universal left/right side fitting. Simply unlock with the manual release allen key and the gate will be free and can be opened and closed manually in the case of an emergency
Powder Coated Channel
The powder coated steel drive channel bolts onto the gate (can also be welded), and allows for the bearing from the linking arm to slide through and create the pivot motion of the gate through its operation.
The internal slide stops that are supplied will fit within the channel at either end and are tightened from underneath for a clamping effect to prevent over travel of the gate system.
Motor Dimensions and Installation
Pulling to open (opening inwards) can be set to open each gate up to 120° (maximum recommended) however 130° to 160° is achievable as with underground systems there is no concern regarding the motor clashing with the gate.
Adjustable in drive channel stops are supplied with the kit if a completely discreet stop is preferred but can only be used up to a maximum of 100° open angle. External gate stop is also provided in this kit and are required for the open angle greater than 100°
Installation Method 1
Recommended option and the easiest on the operator will allow for 120°+ operation
Center pivot of gate motor (output shaft) inline with the center of the gate pivot point (hinge), arm is at a 45° angle to the drive channel/gate
Installation Method 2
Maximum 100°, if option 1 cannot be used. Preferred over option 3
Center pivot of gate motor (output shaft) offset from the center of the gate pivot point (hinge) by up to 200mm, arm is at a 45° angle to the drive channel/gate
Installation Method 3
Maximum 90°, Hardest on the operator and should only be used in special circumstances as required.
Center pivot of gate motor (output shaft) offset from the center of the gate pivot point (hinge) by up to 200mm, arm is at a 20° angle to the drive channel/gate.

24V 20 Watt Solar Panel (Upgradable to 20 Watt or 60 Watt options)
Mono Crystalline silicon solar cells with 3mm tempered glass and two sheets of tedlar-polyeaster-tedlar (TPT) and ethylene Vinyl acetate (EVA). This protects against moisture penetrating into the module. The solar panel is supplied with a fence mounting bracket system along with a pre-connected 5 metre cable (maximum cable distance is 20 metres), the solar panel is also fitted with a diode to prevent feed back from the batteries.

24V 9aH Battery System
Supplied with the automation kit, the 24V Battery System* (2 x 12V 9Ah Batteries) will allow for continued use of the gate system, whether day or night. The system can operate for up to one week of regular residential use without any charge from the solar panel (winter months/wet season) and will automatically recharge from sunlight. When the system batteries are fully charged, it will continue to float charge to keep the batteries topped up and ready for use. In the case of extended use requirements or higher duty, there are upgrade options to 17aH and 33aH battery systems.
*Fully charged batteries will provide 27V and Cuts Off the system at 24V to improve AGM battery life

Long Distance Remote
The APC-RC450S Long range remote is capable of achieving operating distances of up to 400 metres, coupled with the add on booster antenna it can reach up to 800 metres. With these distances you can operate the gate system from around the property, at the home or from the workshop. Multiple long range remotes can be used on the one system.
APC-PE2000 Photoelectric Safety Sensor Set
The Safety sensor set is used to prevent the closing cycle occurring during the case of the sensor path being interrupted by vehicles, trailers or any other obstacles.
If the gate begins to close and the sensor path is interrupted then the gate will stop and return to the open position.
Both sensors (transmitter and receiver) are wired back to the control box of the gate system using the supplied cable roll, alternatively a reflective sensor upgrade is available which will only require wiring from the sensor mounted at the control box.
Up to 15 Metres Infared beam operating distance
Only powers on when the command is given to close the gates
Alignment led to assist in the installation process
Weather sealed with the supplied cover seals
Easy screw down wiring termination
Wired Double Push Button with Isolation Key
The wired double push button switch is a simple and easy to use method to operate the gate for full gate operation and also pedestrian function.
It is mounted in the general area of the gate and can be isolated by using the supplied keys without affecting the rest of the system, this is handy if you want to continue using the remotes or any other method of operation but wish to stop use of the push button itself.
The push button is wired to the control board using the supplied cable roll. If required the wired push button can be upgraded to a wireless version thus eliminating any need for wiring.
65mm Rubber Gate Stop
The supplied 65mm rubber gate stop with a steel base is used for the gate alignment and tension whilst they are in the closed position; it also allows the gates to be mounted up to 50mm off the ground.
Being that the minimum vehicle height from the ground is 100mm, it will not interfere with the vehicle. In the case that the vehicle was lower than the typical minimum, the stopper would not cause any damage as it is constructed from solid rubber but retains its general strength from the steel plate used at the bottom side contacting the driveway.
