Solar Gate Operators

Solar Gate Openers are available in a variety of residential and commercial styles. Attention should be paid to the idle current draw of a solar operator which 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 such as 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 be required.
