Product Information

High Speed powered Boom Gate


left side boom gate


DC Powered Boom Operating System for security and traffic control management designed for entry and exit points at industrial complexes, body corporate managed complexes, factories, schools, car parks, caravan parks and more. The aluminum boom arm is lightweight and adjustable in size from 1m up to 6m in length. It is also supplied with pre installed reflective tape to help for visibility at night time.

The body itself is constructed from robust steel and finished in a smooth red powdercoat. The system is available in two diffrent orientations, a left side and a right side system depending on the best suited for the site and cabling structure.


DC Motor and Over Ride System

The 80 Watt DC motor is very quiet and fast on opening and closing (~6 seconds per direction with a 6m arm and as little as ~2 seconds for a 1m arm), with precise limit encoder settings to ensure accurate positioning during every cycle.

Incase of a loss of power the system is equipped with a built in override to operate the boom gate into either the open and close position.



Balancing Spring System

Included and pre-installed within the operator are TWO tensioning balancing springs to assist in ensuring a smooth jutter free closing movment. Tensions can be increased/decreased by adjusting preload if necessary or removing one of the springs when a shorter length arm is being used.


Control Panel

The internal control panel is fitted with on board push button switches for UP, DOWN and emergency STOP to assist with the installation process.

The control panel is completely pre-wired to the motor and features an on-board rectifier ready to connect the supplied external transformer.




24V 60 Watt Solar Panel (Upgradable to 120W or 180W)



solar boom gate

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.

Important Note:Additional panels can be added in the upgrade options to enable the best charging rates of 120W (two panels) and 180W (three panels), this would be recommended for any of the lower states in Australia (due to winter weather conditions) or anytime the system would be used greater than 20 times per day to ensure the system never reaches a low capacity.
Maximuim Power 60W
Optimum Operational Voltage 36V
Open Circuit Voltage 43.2V
60W Panel Dimensions 805 x 535 x 30mm


24V 17aH Battery System



Supplied with the automation kit the 24V 17aH battery system will allow for continued use of the gate system wether in day or night. The system can operate for up to one week of regular usage of 30 cycles per day without any charge from the solar panel (winter months/wet season) and will automatically recharge from sun light. When the system batteries are fully charged it will continue to float charge to keep the batteries topped up ready for use. In a case of extended use requirments or higher duty there are upgrade options to 33aH battery systems available.

Resting Cradle


boom gate resting cradle

An adjustable resting cradle is supplied with the boom operator to help prevent damage caused by vandalism, the operator can be used without this item however its purpose is to help prevent the arm being pulled down or rested on whilst the operator is in the closed position. It also helps in the installation process as it allows for a simple closeby installation of the reflector from the reflective sensor package (if used).


APC Automation Systems FOUR Button Keyring Remote Control

Four-button remote control transmitter used for operating the boom gate system for OPEN - STOP - CLOSE commands. The remote can be paired to other APC boom gates on the same site or diffrent sites using any of the vacant or unused buttons.
