Centurion D5 sliding gate motor



We fit the Centurion D5 sliding gate motor for easy integration plus it is ideal for domestic and light industrial use. It boasts the following features:

Motor Voltage 12V DC
Starting Thrust 60kgF
Rated Thrust 20kgF
Operating speed at rated thrust 16m/min
Anti-crushing sensing Electronic only
Maximum gate mass 500kg

The thoroughbred range of DC operators offer swift and reliable sliding gate control. The D5 unit is powered by a high torque DC motor coupled to a custom built gearbox.

The system uses a 12V maintenance free battery as the primary power source. The battery is charged via a mains supply or solar panel. For light industrial applications the D5 is available with a power pack which delivers the full current requirement of the motor.
The principle features of the system are:

CUSTOM BUILT GEARBOX – made from advanced engineering materials for corrosion-free strength and durability.
ROBUST LUBRICATED GEARSET – ensures extended life and secure locking.
REVOLUTIONARY INTERNAL LIMIT SWITCH (DOSS) – for pin point stopping and easy installation. Novel gate referenced origin ensures that the end limit positions are never lost even if the gate is accidentally knocked off its rail and repositioned differently.

SENSITIVE ANTI CRUSHING CONTROL – for greater safety.
PROVEN SURGE AND LIGHTNING PROTECTION – for added reliability.
INTERNAL MANUAL RELEASE – with lockable access door for greater security.
UNINTERRUPTED OPERATION – using safe low voltage battery driven DC motor.
FAST OPERATING SPEED – offers greater security and convenience with smooth acceleration and deceleration.
MULTIPLE FEATURES – to suit a wide variety of applications.

At the core of the CENTURION slider is the electronic controller. The controller used in the D5 unit is the CP80 Controller.

Centurian A10 Heavy Duty Sliding Gate Motor

Heavy Duty industrial gate motor features a high torque three phase making it ideal for larger installations.

Smooth acceleration and deceleration
The inverter / 3- phase motor combination provides silky-smooth ramp up to full speed and slow down to a fully controlled stop.

Rapid operation with intelligent speed control
For the ultimate combination of security and safety, the controller can be programmed to open suitable gates at up to 30 metres per minute but close at a slower and safer speed of 16 metres per minute.

Very high starting and running thrust
The three-phase motor combined with inverter control provides radically improved starting and running torques compared to the single-phase capacitor start motors typically used in most gate motor applications.

High gate mass capacity
The rugged diecast aluminium gearbox is designed to handle heavy industrial gates with high inertial loads.

Fan cooled unit for very high duty cycle capability
Duty cycles of up to 100% are possible with a unit fitted with optional cooling fan.

Battery back-up capability using innovative DC converter
In applications which require power failure protection, a DC-to-DC converter with standby battery can be readily added.

Internal limit switch system ensures pin-point stopping
There are no external limit switches to fit or adjust. The well-known DOSS system (Digital origin seeking system) keeps track of the gate position at all times.

Sensitive anti-crushing control
Although the inverter controlled 3 phase motor is capable of delivering a large driving force, the control electronics accurately monitors the applied load to provide sensitive anti-crushing protection.

Reliable 3 phase induction motor runs on single phase power
The unit uses a 3-phase motor for optimum simplicity, reliability and operating performance. Combined with the frequency inverter the unit can be conveniently connected to a standard single-phase 220V supply.
