1 x 1 Channel Loop Detector kit
1 x Pinbase
1 x Instruction Booklet
Cable for all Gate Motors loop detectors is available separately

The loop detector has a connection from the loop cable and feeds signals from this through to the gate automation control panel to open your gates.

By using the 7 day timer and / or the 2 position key switch the loop detector can be set to work at specific hours of the day, the 2 position keyswitch allows the loop detector to be put in a 'holiday mode' and manually switched off while you're away to remove the option of the gates opening automatically to provide an extra level of security.

  • Easy to add onto any automated gate system
  • Very discreet; loop fits underneath your driveway
  • Allows gate release to vehicles exiting your property- no need to push a button
  • Adjustable sensitivity level
  • Works alongside other automation accessories
    • LD100 200 - 260VAC 50Hz 1.5VA
    • LD101 100 - 120VAC 60Hz 1.5VA
    • LD102 11 - 26VAC/DC 50/60Hz 95mA max.   
  • RESPONSE TIME: Approximately 120ms after vehicle enters loop.
  • INDICATOR: LED indicators show: Power, Detect state and Loop Fault.
  • DETECTOR TUNING RANGE: 15 - 1500 uH.
  • PROTECTION: Loop isolation transformer with lightning protection.
  • CONNECTOR: 11 Pin Connector on rear of unit.

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.
