|M-Fab HS Underground Kit||
Irreversible 24Vdc fast underground motor with magnetic encoder, complete with connecting lever and mechanical stop for the closing manoeuvre.
Ideal for intensive use and quick manoeuvres: 90° opening in about 8 seconds.
Foundation boxes externally chamfered, Fab Box with mechanical stop on opening:
• in stainless steel (MECX), ideal for use in extreme conditions,
• with the cataphoresis paint finish (MECF), highly resistant to corrosion.
Reliable and resistant: motors made up of solid internal parts in metal. New IP67 waterproof die cast aluminium.
Total freedom of choice: release from inside and outside, two key-operated models or freely compatible lever version and easily activated with just one hand.
Simple to use: mechanical stop system on closure. Standard opening max. 110°, optional opening 360°.Totally compatible with the previous Metro series.
The M-FabKit, ideal for swing gates with leafs up to 3.5 m, underground installation, ultra compact.
A more evolved range: For optimization of durability and performance: new boxes in cataphoresis finish (MECF), highly resistant to corrosion, both with mechanical stop on opening.
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.
The M-FabKit HS (ME3024HS) comes with the MC824H Control Unit.

Perfect for residential or light intensive use :
• simple programming, by means of a single key;
• self-learning of opening and closing limit positions;
• automatic fault diagnostics;
• programming of pause time;
• pedestrian pass door;
• deceleration on opening and closing;
• obstacle detection with dual technology;
• provision for connection of latest generation resistive sensitive edges.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Closing Limit Stop arrangement has now changed. This has not been updated in the current installation guides provided by Nice but instead is supplied in a separate amendment sheet contained within the motor – English version is available to download from this page in the box marked “DOWNLOADS” for your ease.”
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.
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
