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

The GateMotors Kit MyAster; electromechanical electric gates kits are a cost effective method of gate automation. They are ideal where the gates are hung in the middle of the posts, or close to the edge of the pillars (see diagrams on the Technical Info page). The rams are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed.

You can achieve up-to 110° opening angles, depending on 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. These motors are only suitable for inward opening gates.

Kit Aster limits of use

The GateMotors Kit MyAster is designed for intensive use; motors 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.

The aerial within the kit is pre-installed and has a range of approx 30m.

Please note: the remote that you receive with this kit may be a different colour to what's shown in the image.

How Do I tell if I need a left Hand kit or right hand kit?

 


Example shown is a Left Hand gate arrangement.

Left and and Right hand gates are denoted by the type of bracket. The way to tell which handed kit you need is by looking from the back of the gates from the inside of the driveway with the property to your back – if the gate is hinged on the left, it’s a left handed gate. If the gate is hinged to the right, it is a right handed gate.



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

IF DIMENSIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION ARE NOT ACHIEVED, THE MOTOR(S) WILL FAIL AND MAY BREAK. DAMAGES TO THE MOTOR(S) RESULTING FROM INADEQUATE INSTALLATION IS NOT COVERED UNDER OUR 1 YEAR GUARANTEE

 

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.

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.

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.
