Swing gates motors comprise a body that contains an electric motor or hydraulic pump and an arm or ram attached to the electric gates. The body of the opener is fixed to the gate pillars, posts or piers or in the ground. The gate motor moves the arm or ram which pushes or pulls electric gates open or closed.
Swing Gate Openers
The long, thin bodies and extending and retracting arms of hydraulic ram motors make them an unobtrusive method of gate automation.
Linear screw motors don’t appear to have an arm. However, it is a threaded shaft inside the housing. A slit along the inside or bottom of the housing allows the mounting point to move.
Articulated arm motors use a jointed metal arm to connect the gate to the opener. When the motor turns, the articulated arm is moved away from the electric gate which pulls it open, or pushed towards it which closes the gate.
These motors are installed in foundation boxes sunk into the ground beneath the hinges. The arm is connected to the base of the gate and becomes the lower hinge. They are almost invisible, but must work hard to operate automatic gates.
Mounted inside specially made gate posts, in-post motors are as discrete as undergrounds.
