Platinum Model BLSW814 Swing Gate Opener
No Accessories Included. Must have photoeye to activate
Gate Length Max 14 ft
The BLSW814 is the first choice for residential and commercial swing gate applications because of its many features. First, this full feature, state-of-the-art operator is built with a high-efficiency, switching power supply, along with a powerful, ultra-quiet, high-torque, maintenance-free, brushless DC motor. The 120/220V AC power source is connected to a switching power supply, which can output a proper, stable voltage to the gate operator even when the input voltage is fluctuating .
The brushless DC motor does not need brushes replaced like conventional DC operators, so it is practically trouble free! Due to these inherent characteristics, the brushless DC motor lasts up to 10 time longer than the conventional brushed DC motor. A brushless DC motor’s typical life expectancy is 10,000 to 20,000 working hours, compared to the conventional brushed DC motor that has a life expectancy between 2,000 to 5,000 working hours.
Solar Panel Connectivity
This BLSW814 model can operate with a direct solar panel connection as an optional addition. We recommend using a bigger capacity battery like a 12V, 12Ah battery, if the operator is used in this fashion.
The operator is also equipped with a built-in 24VDC battery backup system that uses two 12V, 7Ah lead acid batteries. Normally this can supply more than enough power to keep the gate working until the AC Power return.
This operator is designed to operate in any climate:
1) It does not require a gearbox or a battery heater to operate above –20°F.
2) Temperatures –20°F and –40°F require a battery heater, and below –40°F requires a gear box and battery heaters.
These unique engineering innovations are backed by the safety and reliability of the most advanced control board in the industry to ensure a smooth operation for any Platinum Access Systems operator..
