Following on the success of the AUTO-MATE swing gate system which has been in service since 1988 and installed in applications around the world including the UK, New Zealand and Canada, Centurion has developed the R3 operator.
The R3 uses a rotary arm principle. This combined with a new generation of electronics with ramp control, provides for a rapid yet smooth opening and closing of the gates. Each operator incorporates a high torque geared 12 V d.c. motor for safe low voltage and whisper quiet operation. The output shaft is linked to the gate via an articulated arm secured by a padlock. The drive units are self-locking preventing the gates from being forced open.
The linkage system is fully adjustable and its design makes installation quick and easy. The R3 system can be driven by a traditional 220 V transformer-rectifier or directly from a 12 V battery for power failure protection and various low voltage power supply options including solar charging, etc.
The operators can be mounted on steel pillars, which are firmly concreted into the ground adjacent to each gate leaf. Alternatively for a quick installation, sturdy brackets are available allowing for the operator to be mounted directly to the gate pillar.
Adding further to the ease of installation of the system the electronic controller, charger and maintenance free battery are housed inside the main operator of each system. For added reliability the controller is fitted with advanced lightning protection designed and tested in conjunction with the CSIR (South African Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research).
The drive units use an internal position control system which constantly monitors the movement of the gate to provide sensitive anti-crushing control protection and pin point stopping. Centurion's products are marketed through an extensive network of qualified installers. The equipment is manufactured to the ISO9001 quality standard and is CE certified.
