Product Overview

The BLSL840 is the first choice for residential and commercial slide gate applications because of its many features.  First, this full featured, state-of-the-art operator is built with a high-efficiency, switching power supply, along with a powerful, ultra-quiet, high-torque, maintenance-free, brushless DC motor.  The 120/220VAC power source is connected to a switching power supply, which can output a proper, stable voltage to the gate operator even when the input voltage is fluctuating.

The brushless DC motor does not need brushes replaced like conventional DC operators, so it is practically trouble-free! Due to these inherent characteristics, the brushless DC motor lasts up to 10 times longer than conventional brushed DC motors. A brushless DC motor’s typical life expectancy is 10,000 to 20,000 working hours, compared to the conventional brushed DC motor that has a life expectancy between 2,000 to 5,000 working hours.

Solar Panel Connectivity

Note. This BLSL840 model can operate with a direct solar panel connection as an optional addition. We recommend using a bigger capacity battery like a 12V, 12Ah battery if the operator is used in this fashion.

Battery Backup

The operator is also equipped with a built-in  24VDC battery backup system that uses two 12V, 7Ah lead acid batteries.  Normally this can supply more than enough power to keep the gate working until the AC Power return.

Operating Conditions

This operator is designed to operate in any climate:

It does not require a gearbox or a battery heater to operate above –20°F.
Temperatures –20°F and –40°F require a battery heater, and below –40°F requires a gear box and battery heaters.

The optional chain routing under the sprocket is for extra chain clearance for non-raised pad mounting.

These unique engineering innovations are backed by the safety and reliability of the most advanced control board in the industry to ensure a smooth operation for any Platinum Access Systems operator.

Features and Benefits:

   1. Continuous duty

   2. Two 12V, 7Ah Lead Acid batteries. That is more than enough power to run the gate

       until the AC power comes back.

   3. Capacity:  Max Gate Weight is 800Ibs and Max Gate Length is 40 ft.

   4. Heavy Duty size 50 gearbox. Size 40 Chain, Nickel Plated.

   5. Corrosion resistant, Powder Coated, heavy duty steel chassis.

   6. Soft start and soft stop to minimize wear and tear on the gate system.

   7. Dynamic Speed Control – No speed variation when gate load changes, or power

       switches between AC and battery. Slide gate works on slope without coasting.

   8. Automatic Learning with Self Sync – Automatically synchronizes gates with different

       travel times for primary/Secondary gate installation.

   9. Solid State Motor Drive for quiet and long last operation.

 10. Advance Maglock Control- Engages Maglock before or after gate is closed. Maglock

       works at both gate open and close position.

 11. Individual Alarm for Primary/Secondary Installation-Alarm sound from the individual

       operator, automatically indicate the obstructed gate.

 12. Solar Priority Power Supply – With a larger solar panel, the gate will run on the solar

        panel instead of the batteries when the sun light is sufficient, saving battery life.

 13. High Efficiency, trouble free, very quiet, and powerful brushless DC Motor – For smooth,

        high torque, and maintenance free operation.

 14. Solid State Motor Drivers – For quiet and long lasting operation.

 15. Motor Brake and Maglock Release by FIRE/KEY Input - Enable manual gate operation 

        in emergency.

 16. One Controlled Power Supply Output for Photo Beam Detector-In solar Installation.

        Turn off PBD when the gate is closed to save battery life.

 17. Adjustable Leaf Delay-Delay on either leaf from the Primary unit in Primary/Secondary


 18. Fail Safe/Secure Capability - Be able to set to fail secured, fail safe or open on power


 19. Electronic reversing sensor built into control board.

 20. Adjust delay timer from 0-60 seconds.

 21. Very reliable Power surge protection design.

 22. Alarm reset button.

 23. Weatherproof polyethylene cover with access door.

 24. Built-in Loop rack board.

 26. Built-in AC power switch. Select 110VAC, or 220VAC for Power  Input Source.

 27. Built-In 110VAC output Outlet.

 28. Back Drivable by turning the Motor breaker OFF.

 29.10 year warranty on the motor (Residential)/8 year warranty on the motor (commercial).

 30. Working temperature is from -20F to +158F

 31. Stackable Limit Switches – For additional features.

 32. Dual Output Loop Detector Rack – Type “B” relays on the loop detector can be used for additional features.

 33. High Capacity DC Back-Up – Over 100 cycles on DC back up depending on the model and gate size.

 34. BLGOC-2200 control board with built-in input/output LED’s.

 35. Residential parts  warranty:    8 years
