Since you are selecting an Automatic Swing Gate Operator System, there may be a few things to keep in mind. First the hinges are the most important part to keep serviced. Keeping them well greased is very important. Make certain the gate swings smoothly. Second, make sure your swing gate is not dragging the ground. That will stress the motor and quickly burn it out. Some gates have adjustable hinges but if not, the gate must be raised to clear the bottom throughout the gate cycle. Third, check the limits - if the gate is opening too far or closing too far then their limits will need to be adjusted. This will prevent gate bouncing, the arm too stretched or even disabling the motor-stoppage when it hits an obstruction.
Numerous benefits of the DKS 6500-080 start with the fact it is mounted on a solid steel frame that is plated for corrosion resistance. A polyurethane housing protects and motor in every kind of environment. The two piece articulated arm opens the gate to a full 90 degrees in just 12 seconds. Gate log reporting output can provide operator information and features like automatic gate close timer, gate overlap for bi-parting (dual) gate operation, adjustable electronic magnetic limits as well as magnetic power lock are making this gate operator and Elite choice. This is one durable gate for single or double gate entries.
