Automatic Gate Opener

How does an Automatic Gate Opener work?
The Zareba Automatic Gate Opener works by sending a radio signal from a hand held transmitter to a small
receiver. The receiver is wired to the control box which interprets the signal as either a close or open signal.
The motor in the actuator arm then starts and pushes the arm backwards or forwards thus moving the gate.

What power source do I require?
The Zareba Automatic Gate Opener has a low voltage control system. There is a battery in the control box
which requires a constant charge. This allows the use of a 220-230 volt AC to 18 volt AC mains adaptor to
be used. You do not have to employ an electrician to connect the system up. For remote locations solar
panels are available.

What tools do I need to install the Automatic Gate Opener?
The Zareba Automatic Gate Opener does not require any special tools. A power drill, a set of spanners, a
10mm drill bit, hacksaw, small electrical screw driver, cross head screw driver, tape measure, spirit level,
wire stripper or pliers and a set of ‘G’-clamps.

How many times will it open and close in a day?
This depends on the condition of the internal battery. Using the supplied AC adaptor the Zareba Auto-
matic Gate Opener should operate the largest gate up to 200 times a day. When used with a solar panel
the number of operations per day will depend on the available sunlight and geographic location. See solar
panel box for details.

What stops the gate moving when it is closed?
When correctly set up the Zareba Automatic Gate Opener cannot be moved by hand. The actuator arms
will hold them securely in place. For additional security an Zareba Automatic Gate Latch is available (GBL1)

What do I do in the event of a power cut?
The Zareba Automatic Gate Opener has battery backup installed. It will operate while the mains is off. In
the event of a system failure the clevis pin can be removed and the gate opened manually.
Can I leave the gate open for as long as I want?
You can choose to have the gate stay open until you press the button again or have it close after a pre-
determined time.

Will the Zareba Automatic Gate opener cope with snow and ice?
The Zareba Automatic Gate Opener is designed to work in all weather conditions. However, snow must be
cleared away from the gate’s swing path before activating the opener, and moving parts should receive a new
application of silicone spray every 4-6 weeks. It is also a good idea to make sure the hinges are not frozen.

What do I get in the kit?
The kit includes all components you require for installation. However there are no tools and you will also
need to purchase the connection cable (GBW1) between the adaptor and the control box. This can be
purchased by the metre, the length being dependant on the length of drive way.
