An underground motor from Nice Automation available in a 24v format as the Kit X-Metro .

The Kit X-Metro, ideal for swing gates with leafs up to 2.3 m, underground installation, ultra compact. New irreversible electromechanical 24 Vdc gear motor. The X-Metro is compatible for operation with the Solemyo system. Tough and discreet: compact foundation box with a height of only 81 mm. Steel with cataphoresis paint finish guarantees optimal resistance to corrosion, and thickness of 2.5 mm guarantees strength.

Cataphoresis is a surface treatment coating that can give high resistant to corrosion at the steel products and is characterized by an additional coating of a uniform epoxy or acrylic resin on the surface of the item, ensuring long outstanding protection against weather attacks, also allowing better adhesion of paint finish. The acrylic resin is different from the epoxy because it can remain in direct contact with bad weather conditions while maintaining the technical characteristics.

This treatment ensures a durable rust protection.

All this in a protrusion of just 52 mm from the ground. Practical and quick installation thanks to the exit lever on the gear motor attached directly on the leaf. Mechanical limit switches adjustable on opening and closing. Standard opening up to 180° with no accessory. Reliable and sturdy: the gear motor, in IP67 pressure die cast aluminium, suspended inside the housing to enable drainage of any deposits, ensures optimal water resistance. Practical release from inside and outside, acting directly on the gear motor, easy to operate by means of the special key.

New Moonclever control unit MC424:
- easy programming by pressing a single button;
- clutch with anti-crush safety feature;
- automatic memorization of limit switches on opening and closing with self-learning function;
- programming of pause time;
- pedestrian pass door;
- deceleration on opening and closing;
- obstacle detection;
- provision for connection of latest generation resistive sensitive edges;
- continues to work even during power failures using optional (PS124) batteries that fit inside the control unit.

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.

 

Remember if fitting underground drivers to wooden gates, it will be necessary to clad the gate bottom edge with metal to spread the load and to give something to attach the motor shoe. If you don't, the push-pull from the high torque will eventually split the wood.

 

All underground motors will operate underwater when new, but if left submerged, it is likely that water will eventually enter the motor and / or cable insulation will become porous. It is better to correctly drain the foundation cases from day one to protect your investment! Some additional fabrication/welding may be necessary to connect the drive shoe to your gates.

 

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

 Optional upgrades and accessories include:

    * underground exit loop (detects the presence of a vehicle and automatically opens the gate)
    * extra photocells
    * additional key fobs
    * intercom kit

Gate Automation

Please select what type of automation you require for your gate/s. Double & Single Swing refer to motors which attach to the gate and pillar of a swing motion gate. Double & Single Underground refer to motors which lay beneath the ground which attach to the hinge end of swing motion gates. Choose Sliding if you require lateral moving gate automation and Wheeled if you require a motor which utilises a wheeled motor to drive your gate/s.

Motor Voltage

There are two types of power outputs to consider - 24v & 230v. If you need a higher number of operations (opened/closed more than 5-6 times in an hour) during peak periods such as the morning and evening, then you may wish to consider a 24v system.

24v systems are more suitable for higher operation levels as they tend to run cooler than 230v gate motors. However, they do cost more in relative terms, so if you only need to open or close the gate 1-5 times an hour then a 230v system might prove more cost-efficient.

24v motors tend to be used on commercial premises, whereas 230v tend to be used on standard domestic properties. The exception to this rule is sliding gate motors where the reverse is true - 24v sliding gate automation systems tend to be for domestic use, 230v for more intense use (commercial/communal).

24v systems can draw power from battery backup systems meaning they can still operate during any mains power cut (a 230v or 3 phase system would need to be opened with a manual release key).

24v systems can also utilise solar power units as a means of charging batteries, allowing you to site gate automation in rural and remote locations where mains power is unavailable.

Specifications can be found for each product from their datasheet. Each datasheet is downloadable from each product page on this website.

Weight of Gate

All electric gate motors operate up to a maximum weight. This is so the gate will operate in a reliable and safe manner. It is essential to know the weight of each gate leaf in order to choose the correct motor for you installation. If you do not know the weight of your gate/s, send us a photo along with the gate/s dimensions and we can advise.

Gate Width

As with weight, gate motors are designed for gates within certain dimensions. The most important dimension is the width of the gate. To ensure you select the right motor to operate your gate you must know the width of each gate that requires automation.

Opening Angle

Each motor has a maximum angle to which it can operate to. Therefore it is important to note how far the gate needs to open in order for a vehicle to enter/exit safely.

Daily Use

The amount of times your gate is used per day is a determining factor when deciding on the right motor for your usage. Motors are designed to operate within a certain capacity (operations per day) so choosing a motor compatible with your desired use is essential for its durability. Select from the options below the number of times (open & closure = 1 x operation) the gate/s will be operated on an average day.
