Your electrically automated gates will be powered by the mains but will run at either 230 V or 24 V depending on your requirements.
230 V Systems
230 V systems will meet the needs of most residential users, they are easier to install, therefore cheaper. 230 V systems are not intended to be used more than 8 times per hour in regular service and have a thermal cut out device which will step in if the machine starts to overheat, thereby preventing breakdown.
A 230 V control board will allow the user to operate additional architectural features such as lighting when the gates open. They are the ideal balance between cost and function that will meet the needs of many users.
CAME's latest generation of 230 V control panels now have the latest activation and safety features built in.
24 V DC Systems
24 V DC operators use a transformer to step down the power from the mains to operate the gates and have all the features of 230 V systems plus some additional elements.
24 V motors are suitable for intensive use and are recommended particularly for commercial situations or on residential apartments or estates where the gates will be opened over 8 times an hour. The installation of 24 V operators is more time intensive therefore expect to pay a little more for them.
24 V systems have additional advanced activation and safety features built in to the control panels. These include slowdown functions at the beginning and end of the opening run, enhanced obstacle detection.
