FAQ

  • What is the difference between Mains, LV & Solar powered gate automation kits?
    1. If you have a 240 V power-point right at the gate then you can choose mains powered gate automation kits. In this case the electric gate motors come with pre-connected power cord that can be plugged-in to this power-point. The V2 FORTECO-1800 sliding gate motors are AC motors and V2 TORQ-500 sliding gate motors, V2 MOOV-500 linear swing gate motors & V2 ZORUS-420 folding arms swing gate motors are all 24V DC gate motors. These 24V DC gate motors come with pre-installed step-down transformer & a rectifier unit that converts mains 240V AC in to 24V DC power. 2. If you don't have 240V power-point at the gate but it's far back somewhere in your garage or house and with-in 80 meters of distance from your gates then you can choose LV powered gate automation kits. In this case an external low voltage transformer with a pre-connected power cord installed in a weatherproof enclosure is provided so you plug-in this power cord to your nearest power-point, transformer unit stays there and a two core (2mm thick) low voltage cable can be run back to the electric gate motor. since its a safe low voltage cable then you don't need to bury this cable deep in to the ground, it can be brought overground but please pass this cable through a PVC conduit to protect it from being damaged during gardening or any other landscaping activity. 3. If you don't have 240 V power-point up to 80 meters of distance from the driveway gate then you can choose solar powered gate automation kits. In this case a 50W of Monocrystalline solar panel with mount & a standalone 24V solar system are provided. This 24V solar system comes with pre-installed high power 2x 12V, 12Ah batteries and a MPPT controller in a weatherproof enclosure. The output from this 24V solar system is fed to the gate motor. This system is best for the farm gates where houses are usually built more than 100m away from the front gates.
  • Can I install the gate motors by myself?
    Yes, a handy person can easily install our V2 brand of gate motors and SGA brand of access control devices.

  • How do I get more information about the products?
    Please contact us and we will share more information about our products via an email or over the phone.
  • Why is MPPT better than PWM solar charge controller?
    MPPT is up to 30% more efficient than PWM solar charge controller. MPPT controller matches its internal resistance to the solar panel characteristic resistance, drawing power at the Maximum Power Point. A PWM controller pulls the solar panel voltage down to just above the battery voltage, away from the Maximum Power Point of the solar panel and a large proportion of energy from sunlight hitting that photovoltaic cells get wasted. Our 24V standalone solar system comes with MPPT controller & high power 12Ah batteries to provide you smooth & trouble-free electric gate automation.
