The gate shown here is located on Valencia Way in Atwater, California. This is a 12'
gate, and the operator box can be seen behind the fence, on the right hand side of the
gate. In this particular case, with an electrical supply available, the option
to have a trickle feeder constantly charge the gate's power storage supply. If there is
ever a power outage, the gate keeps on operating from the power storage supply. The
storage supply is sufficient to operate the gate, without AC power, for weeks.
The gate is opened with the equivalent of a garage door opener. These openers come in the
standard sizes, as well as miniature key ring sizes.
When approaching this gate from the house side, the gate opens using the remote or an
optional loop system that is buried a few inches under the surface of the driveway making
the opening of your gate automatic.
There are several options available to automate the gate's operation. Included is the
option to have the gate close by itself after a set period of time, from 10 seconds to
more than 60 seconds.
