This keypad is to be used on gate automation.


Whatever the elements have in store the new APX-16 waterproof keypad as been purposely designed to stand up to the challenge.

The new keypad is IP68 rated, which means it can be installed in the most extreme environments. Not only is the entire keypad protected from long periods of immersion under pressure, the units complete wiring system is also totally protected against the ingress of dust and contamination.

The APX-16 represents a new generation multiple input keypads, providing a standard 4-8 digit pin code with the option to include a proximity reader for up to 1200 users when specifying the AXP-16 PROX. The range supports pin only, card only or a combination of pin and card operation with two relay out-puts, lock and alarm.

The keypad will accept a 125KHZ EM proximity card and uses two zones. Zone one offers up to 1100 pin and card holders, whilst zone two allows up to 100 pin and card holders. The APX-16 design has a lock output of up to 2 amps and an alarm output of 20 amps, both relays are normally open or closed settable. The keypad will accept both 12-24v AC and DC power inputs.

Featuring backlit keys for easy visibility in low lit areas such as porches, under canopies or where there is poor street lighting, the APX-16 incorporates a 58mm wide super slimline design, which is both aesthetical pleasing and yet the robust zinc diecast and electroplated construction affords a reasonable measure of vandal protection.

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.
