1. Make sure the connection between the UPS01 and control box is correct and fastening.

2. Make sure the UPS01 power supply has been plugged into the AC main socket or the batteries (2*12V batteries connected in series) have been connected to the UPS01 well.

3. Battery is over-discharge if you only use batteries with the UPS01 to power up the gate opener. The voltage of the battery should above 22V to make the gate opener work normally. Please wait the battery to be charged above 22VDC.

4. Check the output of UPS01. If the output of UPS01 is measured below 21VDC and the voltage of the batteries is above 22VDC or the power cord has been plugged into the socket well, then the UPS01 is defective.

5. Check the fuse in the control board. Replace the fuse if it was burnt out.

6. Check the control board. Replace the control board if necessary.

1. Exchange the wire connection of the 2 arms and check what will happen to the 2 arms. If the faulty arm is still faulty, then the arm itself is faulty. If the failure changes to the other arm which worked normally before, then the control board is faulty.

2. If the arm is confirmed faulty by step 1, you can connect the RED & BLACK wire of the arm to the output of UPS01 directly to check if the arm could run normally (Exchange the RED & BLACK wire to the polarity of the output of power supply will change the running direction of the arm). If so, then the limit switch of the arm is faulty. If the arm still can’t run, then the motor part which is inside the arm is faulty.

Gate automatically opens, but does not automatically close

A3S Solar swing gate

Love this kit! Easy to install and even easier to use. Friends already asking where we got it, they want one! Came with two FOBS, I call them his and her's.

Great DIY Gate Opener

I am very impressed with the quality of the PW502. It arrived well packaged and undamaged. Installation was pretty straightforward with a helper and the system worked when connected to a 110V outlet.

Excellent Gate Opener and Outstanding Customer Support

The gate opener works perfectly and is an excellent value. Initially, one of the openers had a minor defect and didn't function reliably, but TOPENS helped me identify the problem and immediately sent a replacement component. Their customer service support was the best I have ever experienced with detailed guidance to diagnose the problem and prompt action to provide replacement components. I would highly recommend TOPENS for the quality of the product and especially for their level of customer service and commitment to ensuring the device works properly.

Another Great Product

I purchased the receiver as it came with 2 x extra remotes.
The instructions were very clear on how to add the receiver. Pairing all the remotes only took a few seconds and the working range of the remote has also increased.

Excellent Product

Excellent product. Was very easy to install. Instructions are clear.
All parts of the control box and solar controller are well labelled, it would be hard to install it incorrectly.
I purchased a large weatherproof box extra to contain the control box, solar controller and batteries. The solar panels are neat and are charging the batteries as expected.
Overall I am delighted with the gate opener and would highly recommend it.

TOPENS Kundenservice exzellent

Mein 30 Jahre alter Antrieb war zum Ersetzen und ich brauchte Rat, ob die bestehenden Zahnstangen an meinem Tor auch für den neuen Antrieb von Topens passen. Umgehend kam die Antwort, dass sie passen und ich bestellte den TOPENS RK700T. Der Einbau, die Installation und die Programmierung der Fernbedienungen waren dank der guten Bedienungsanleitung problemlos.

Vielen Dank für Ihre positive Bewertung mit Bildern. Weil wir TOPENS eine wachsende Marke ist, ist uns Ihre Bewertung von hoher Bedeutung. Ihre Bewertung und Unterstützung motiviert uns und geben unser Bestes, um den Kunden den besten Kundenservice zu bieten. Wir bedanken uns für Ihre Unterstützung.

The install was pretty easy, and the support is great. Make sure the gate is level swinging both ways. Overall, for the price this is a good product. I recommend this product

DKC1100S Sliding gate opener

I am very happy with this sliding gate opener. It's quiet, fast and smooth opening. The install is easy for anyone with a little mechanical knowledge and a few hand tools. I had to buy a chain breaker to extend the chain, as my gate was slightly over 20 feet. Everything needed was in the kit. The instructions are easy to read and understand. There is also a video on youtube that was helpful. The only thing I had to purchase was another 20' chain. My gate is 20' with a 2 foot tail piece. It would be nice to be able to buy chain by the foot instead of having to buy another 20 foot section.

Fantastic Product

We moved into to our idyllic country setting about three years ago. It soon became obvious that having an automated gate to save getting in and out of the car would be a great asset. But it was far too much work and cost to connect to mains power given the distance. So I researched and found the Topens A5(S) on Amazon. What a brilliant little item! We just have a five bar gate so the smallest kit was plenty. Fitted by my brother in law with some help from me, which took a few hours, it was up and running that evening. I've since fitted the adaptor and run that to the mains using outdoor wiring which ensures that we still have power when the solar panel isn't getting much sun(this is England..)so we are covered all year round. I'm a country postman and see lots of gates that would benefit greatly from the small upfront investment of the kit and very minimal ongoing costs. I can't recommend it highly enough.

M12 Remote Control

A contractor set up my gate and when they were finished with the install, they gave my wife the 4 button green remote control. I have used it but after selecting the first button, it'll open but then close on it's own after a few minutes. What are the other buttons for?

Dear Pat, thank you for your review. Kindly note that for TOPENS swing gate opener, the four buttons (A, B, C and D) of M12 remote control share the same function. However, for TOPENS sliding gate opener, button B is designed to achieve midway function (please refer to the gate opener user manual for more details). Therefore, it must program button A with a sliding gate opener.
In your case, it seems that your gate closes automatically. Please refer to the user manual and disable the auto-close function if you don’t need it.
If you need further assistance, please contact our service email (support@topens.com) directly and provide your order information and specific gate opener model. Our customer service will provide you corresponding help within 24 hours.

Replacement for our old Mighty Mule gate opener

I had been fussing with our old Mighty Mule gate opener for years. Primarily it was the battery that seemed to fail more and more frequently as time went by until the last battery lasted maybe only a month. (I think it was getting overcharged.) I don't need a battery backup since I have 110 at the gate and I finally found this online that does not require a battery.

The other thing that spurred me to replace the Mighty Mule was that our horses got out because another gate got left open and since the Mighty Mule was not working that gate was left open and the horses got out on the road. We chased them for about a mile down the road until we were able to coral them and walk them back home. I learned my lesson.

Anyway, installation was pretty easy and I am very pleased with its operation. The remotes work well from a long distance away. Just wired in a doorbell button that I got from Lowes ($5.99) so that friends, vendors or Fedex can open it from the street. The button even illuminates at night. (I'm not worried about unauthorized entry where I live.)

Also, I did contact support to answer a question I had and they were prompt and concise with their answer.
