AC and Solar Gate Power Options

Currently, our Swing Gate Openers are solar compatible, however our Slide Gate Openers require connection to 110v AC. Swing Gate Openers run from the battery which is charged either by the solar panel or from electricity running to the gate site. Slide Gate Openers run directly from the power source but utilize the batteries as back up, in the case of a power outtage. For details regarding power for a particular product, please see the individual product page and manual.

10 Watt Solar Panel

The solar panel kit comes with tubular steel support, mounting clips, wire connectors, and 8 ft. of low voltage wire. Installation in some regions requires multiple panels for adequate charging power. Wattage necessary depends on the gate opener power needs, additional access controls and devices that draw on the battery, and amount of exposure to sunshine. Polaris Swing Gate Openers' control boards are pre-wired for the solar panel.
