1) The operator is appropriate for the construction and the usage Class of the gate.

2) All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to a minimum of 4 feet (1.2 m) above the ground to prevent a 2 1/4inch (57.15 mm) diameter sphere from passing through the openings anywhere in the gate, and in that portion of the adjacent fence that the gate covers in the open position.

3) All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded, and

4) Guarding is supplied for exposed rollers.

B) The operator is intended for installation only on gates used for vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate access opening.

C) The gate must be installed in a location so that enough clearance is supplied between the gate and adjacent structures when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas.

D) The gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions prior to the installation of the gate operator.

E) -

F) Controls must be far enough from the gate so that the user is prevented from coming in contact with the gate while operating the controls. Controls intended to be used to reset an operator after 2 sequential activations of the entrapment protection device or devices must be located in the line of sight of the gate outdoor or easily accessible controls shall have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.

G) All warning signs and placards must be installed where visible in the area of the gate.

 

H) For a gate operator utilizing a non-contact sensor such as a photo beam:

1) See instructions on the placement of non-contact sensor for each Type of application,

2) Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate still moving, and

3) One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.


I) For a gate operator utilizing a contact sensor such as an edge sensor:

1) One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, trailing edge and postmounted both inside and outside of a vehicular horizontal slide gate.

2) One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vehicular vertical lift gate.

3) One or more contact sensors shall be located at the pinch point of a vehicular vertical pivot gate.

4) A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the sensor and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.

5) A wireless contact sensor such as the one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall function under the intended end-use conditions.

GATE POST WARNING

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

Because the coasting distance may vary due to changes in temperature, Elite does NOT recommend the installation of a stop or catch post in front of the gates path. To do so will cause the gate to hit the post in certain instances.



Elite only recommends installation of catch rollers on the side of a catch post or wall with a minimal distance of half an inch between the rollers and gate. Also when fully open the end of the sliding gate must stop at least five inches from any wall or other object.



CAUTION!

For safety reasons, a physical stop must be installed on the gate prior to installation of the gate operator. This will assure that the gate does not exceed movement limits and derail while opening or closing fully.

 

WARNING SIGNS

IMPORTANT!

Installers are required to adhere to this procedure: The UL required Warning Signs must be installed in plain view and on both sides of each gate installed. Each sign is made with fastening holes in each corner and should be permanently secured in a suitable manner. Also the warning sticker should be placed on the operator so it is clearly visible.

TWO-WAY ADJUSTABLE REVERSING SENSOR

DO NOT Touch Alarm Sensor

The level of sensitivity has to do with the weight of the gate and the condition of installation.
Too sensitive = if the gate stops or reverses by itself.
Not sensitive enough = if the gate hits an object and does not stop or reverse.

CAUTION: If the power supply to the gate operator is less than 99 volts, adjust the alarm by turning the alarm adjustment counter-clockwise enough to actuate the alarm when obstructed but not sensitive enough for false triggering to occur.
