Gate Automation Motors

Ram Arm Type Automation Systems 

 

These are the more cost effective way of automating a gate in the domestic environment but less aesthetically pleasing. In commercial environments they become essentially unbeatable due to the way that they operate by pulling and pushing the gate, this allows them to work more efficiently than there underground counterpart.

 

There are two main types of ram arm type operators hydraulic and electro-mechanical, the difference put simply is one is oil filled and the other is not they operate in totally different ways. Below is a guide on gate automation motors and what type may suit your needs the best.

 

Electro-mechanical Ram Arm.

• These are a more domestic type operator due to the amount of times they can open and close per day.

• They are not as strong as there hydraulic counterparts in that their ability to move heavier gates is limited.

• They are more cost effective to install and maintain.

• They come in both 240v and 24v anti- crush varieties to suit different applications.

• Very quiet when opening and closing (when maintained correctly)

 

Hydraulic Ram Arm.

 

• Domestic to commercial these rams have a type to suit all needs up to 7m per gate leaf in length

• They can perform more operations per day – up to 500 maneuvers in 24 hrs.

• They are more costly to install but have a longer life cycle dependent on usage.

• They come in both 240v and 24v anti- crush varieties to suit different applications.

 

Underground Type Automation Systems 

 

These are more expensive than there above ground ram counterparts, but when you are after that aesthetically pleasing look nothing beats the fact you hardly notice what makes the gates open and close. Correctly installed and maintained some systems have lasted up to 15 years before needing replacement.
