Is there no electricity near the location you need your slide gate opener? Are you just looking for green energy? Then look no further than an automatic slide gate operator that can be powered through solar panels and batteries.
Solar Slide Gate Operators are available in a variety of residential and commercial models. In choosing a solar slide gate operator, you need to consider the amount of energy you will draw. This determines the size of the solar panel needed. The more efficient the control board, the smaller the solar panel needed, and the lower the overall cost of the system. Solar gate systems need efficient peripheral components as well. These components are low power loop detectors, and low power digital keypads. Solar panels and batteries for driveway gates should be sized accordingly to location. Sunny areas will require smaller panels. In areas with prolonged overcast periods, more battery storage capacity will should be purchased.
