Powering the 500 / 502

The 500 / 502 gate opener is powered by a 12-volt, 7.2 amp hour battery (two are included for enhanced performance). If within 200 feet of gate, we recommend using 110v AC current to provide a continuous trickle charge to the battery. A transformer (included with gate operator) is simply plugged into a wall outlet and then connected with low voltage wire to the battery in the control box.

Alternatively, Solar Power may be used to charge to the battery. Two sizes of panels are available (10-watt and 20-watt) depending on how much sunlight is available at the site of the gate and how many times per day the gate will be opened and closed.
