Flexible Uses - The MyAster packs a lot of power for its price, offering incredible value for money. It is deft and subtle when needed using low torque settings via the Q80A/R programmable control board, or it can provide a lot of umph when needed. It is ideal for 5-bar farm gates and other wooded gates where power needs to be delivered in a precise and measured manner.

Best Selling - The MyAster is our most popular selling double gate automation kit range. With numerous kit options available, it will operate a large proportion of residential and agricultural gates and is a reliable and confident automation system.

40 years of experience - The MyAster is manufactured by a renowned Italian gate automation manufacturer Proteco as part of their MyGate range. Proteco have been producing robust and reliable industrial and residential electric gate automation products for nearly 40 years and have always embraced safety and reliability.

UK based support - Each of the gate kits come with comprehensive instruction manuals for installation and programming, and our qualified UK based staff are available for sales and technical support and advice.

Cost Effective - The MyAster electromechanical ram operator kits are a cost effective method of gate automation and are ideal where the gates are hung on posts, or close to the edge of the pillars. The rams are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed but a lock is recommended for leaves over 3 meters long. Opening angles up to 110°, depending on hinge position, may be achieved.

Reliable / Build Quality - The MyGate range of operators are designed for intensive use; they are constructed of quality die-cast aluminium with stainless steel, bronze and steel parts. The fluid-grease lubrication system, polyester powder-paint coating, self-lubricating worm gear and built-in thermal protection system ensure quiet operation and a long working life in all weather conditions, without the need for periodic maintenance.

Looking for the single gate Kit MyAster, then view our range of single swing gate openers.

We would recommend that you consider the Kit MyAster Safety+ version(s) as the additional set of safety photocells provide an added level of protection on the inside of the gates with the emergency stop button giving a highly visible method of stopping the gates. Greater levels of safety can also be reached by the use of safety edges.

It is possible to achieve up-to a 110° opening angle, but will depend on the hinge position and model in use; suitable for gate openings from 4m-7m (2m to 3.5m per leaf) and up to a combined gate weight of 350Kg. This motor is only suitable for inward opening gates.

Technical Information


Diagram of the Aster Gate

These diagrams show the gates closed and the operator mounting brackets fixed to the back face of each pillar (from inside the property).

The Kit MyAster operator and bracket are positioned so as dimensions A & B comply to the installation instructions supplied with the kit.

With all linear automation (straight arm motor) the laws of geometry do apply. These are a series of measurements that aid the motors to pivot on its triangular mounting bracket. If the measurements are not achieved, the motor will not pivot on its bracket and the gate will fail to achieve its full opening angle.

Below pictures are birds-eye views of two types of typical gate leaf mounting:

FIG 1 – Gate leaf hinged in the centre of the pillar

FIG 2 – Gate leaf hinged on corner of the pillar

The Kit MyAster operator and bracket are positioned so as dimensions A & B comply to the installation instructions supplied with the kit.

The values are dependent on the Kit MyAster model selected.

Dimensions to Achieve

For the Kit MyAster 3 (2m max per leaf)
A = 145mm
B = 145mm

For Kit MyAster 4 (2.75m max per leaf)
A = 195mm
B = 195mm

For Kit MyAster 5 (3.5m max per leaf)
A = 245mm
B = 245mm



Installation Hint:

When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes.

This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.

If you only have a single gate and you are not sure if you need a right-hand or left-hand kit?

The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you).

If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand kit; if it's on the right you need a right-hand kit.

For more information on the electrical cabling requirements for this system please see our electric gate cabling guide.

Kit myAster optional upgrades and accessories include:

    * gate stops (all of our gate motors require some form of resistance at the end of the opening & closing phase.)
    * underground exit loop (detects the presence of a vehicle and automatically opens the gate)
    * extra photocells
    * additional key fobs
    * intercom kit
    * extended range (external) aerial

Please Note: It is solely the responsibility of the recipient or the client / specifier – to ensure that the products described are suitable for purpose (see fitting guide under downloads) & comply with the relevant building regulations.
