DC Solutions Mega Arm and Mega Arm Tower – Residential DC Barrier Gate Operator
The DC Solutions Mega Arm and Mega Arm Tower are DC-powered additions to the DC Solutions® family of gate operators. Designed with a 24V DC (1/2 HP equivalent) motor, these models provide exceptional starting torque and continuous operation, making them ideal for most applications. Constructed with an aluminum alloy chassis, they´re corrosion resistant and light enough for one person to carry and install. The heavy-duty motor supports 6,000 cycles per day with an operator speed of 2.5 seconds to open or close.
The DC Solutions Mega Arm and Mega Arm Towers single State of the Art universal electronics control board eliminates the need for mechanical limit switches, relays and contactors. Arm position is limited by a magnet mounted on the drive shaft which is sensed by two magnetic sensors on the electronics controller. Its full service controller is capable of accepting inputs from telephone entry, loop detectors, card readers, push buttons, barcode scanners, and is equipped with multiple vehicle memory buffer. Built in regulated 24VDC backed up power provided for accessories (detectors, receivers, card readers). The standard break away arm design can allow the arm to be reused many times. Finally, its modern design and cutting edge technology will make it the perfect choice for all your parking control applications.
No power? No problem!
Built-in battery backup provides seamless operation of the gate operator and all DC control and sensing devices in the event of a power loss.
