Electromechanical: There motors are the most common among residential Swing Gates. They are the cheapest, but still of the highest quality; they differentiate left and right and it is always chosen by looking at the gate from the inside. These Rams can do up to around 50 openings per day and are divided by stroke:
Underground Motors: Hades (Our Underground Motor) is designed to be fit underground inside its installation box and moves Swing Gates from underground. If installed correctly, only the lever, that moves the gate and is installed on the gate to the motor, will be seen. This motor can move gates up to 2,5Mt (8ft) and max 350Kg per leaf.
Articulated Arm Motors: These motors are designed to be fast (opening time 15s) and to be fit on wider posts because of their wide installation dimensions (more info). The Kallisto Articulated Arm motors can move gates up to 2Mt (7ft) and max 150Kg per leaf.
IMPORTANT: GROUND STOPS are Highly Advised on all Swing Gate installations (more info). Also, on all swing gates that have gate wings Wider than 2Mts (7Ft) it is highly advised to install an Electric Lock. All motors above operate at 230V (220-240V).
Our Sliding Gate Openers are divided by the weight that they can move:
Nylon rack is used on most kits as it lowers the sound the motor makes while moving the Gates. It has INNER BODY in STEEL so this does not affect its resistance to damage. It is advised for gates up to 1000Kg. Steel rack is compatible with all motors and available on request to substitute nylon rack in any kit desired, with a small price difference. It is usually advised for gates heavier than 1000Kg.
To check compatibility with non Oxygen Original Racks, they need to be Module M4, which means that the center of each "tooth" of the rack needs to be around 12,5mm far from the center of the previous and next tooth of the same rack.
All motors above operate at 230V (220-240V).
Control Units: Control Units are connected to the house electric system and make the motors open and close. They also power wired accessories and connect to wireless ones. They are divided by type:
Remote Controls: Remote Controls are used to open the gate Wirelessly and use a safety Rolling Code Technology (anti-theft). They need to be connected to the control unit to work (It can be find on Control Unit Instructions). All Remote Controls buttons can be programmed in the same way; we advise to keep only one kind of remote control per installation.
Photocells: Photocells are used for Safety. One or Two Pairs can be installed. It is highly advised to put one pair in between the Gate posts. This will make sure that, when passing through the gate, the gate will not crush the car or person that is going through. They should operate like this: When the gate is closing, if someone passes through the photocells, the gate reopens.
Flashing Light: A Flashing Light is used as a Warning that the gate is moving. It can also be used to see when the control unit has read the remote control signal and will start opening.
Wireless Keypad/Keyboard: A Keypad is used to comfortably open the gate with a code. It is connected Wirelessly to the Control Unit and is paired like a Remote Control.
Electric Locks: An Electric Lock is used for better overtime endurance, wind protection and gate security. The Electric Lock opens automatically once the gate is being opened by an accessory (Remote Controls, Keypads etc...) and re-locks when the gate closes. An Electric Lock is advised for all Swing Gates over 2Mt (7ft) per leaf.
Safety Edge: A Safety Edge is a safety device used for obstacle detection for Swing and Sliding Gates. It has a soft edge that, once pressed by being hit, stops and re-opens the gate. Because of its softness, it will not damage the object or person that hit it. The Safety Edge has a customizable length and is sold in 2 meters pieces, that can be cut. The Safety Edge can be connected Wirelessly to the control unit using its Wireless Kit.
Receiver: A Receiver is used to use Oxygen Automation Original accessories on any installation. It only needs to be connected to the control unit, than you will be able to connect any wireless accessory to it and open the gate with it (Remote Controls or Keypads).
