I installed the gate with the rest directions. Programming is minimal and very straight forward.
I bought marine batteries, a little conduit, and a decent battery box, but the rest was provided.
After a few weeks it stopped working and I had an overcharge light on the controller. I live in the desert, so maybe too much sun?
Tech support was responsive and nice. I took my meter out and they had me measure voltages and confirm wiring was right. I still had the warning.
I drained the batteries a bit and reinstalled them, all worked great, for a bit. But the error returned. Tech support sent over tons of articles on things to check, which was overwhelming, given that some was for undercharging.
I decided to just bite the bullet and run power to the unit. All the information that was being sent buried me and wasn’t always relevant to my issue. That’s a nice thing about this motor, it’s versatile on its power sources.
I’ve since bought extra accessories and am connecting the batteries I bought as backup power.
Given the gate company wanted $4000 to install a motor, and I did it for less that $900, I’m very happy.
Since I put the unit on AC, it’s working great. I definitely recommend this motor.
