Description

Swing gate operators which are rugged, long-lasting, maintenance free and have easy operation. Available with a gate leaf weight of up to 1100 kg or a gate leaf width of 7 m and can be installed on the right or left gate leaf.

Available in various configurations:

twist 200 E:

With its compact design, the twist 200 E can be universally used: for gates opening to the left or right, in one or two operation. The controlled soft run reduces speed at the end positions, avoiding wear and tear on gate and operator.

twist 200 EL:

The longer travel length of 550 mm ensures the highest installation flexibility even if the posts are wide.

twist 350:

Can be used anywhere: for gates opening to the left or right, in one or two operation.

twist AM:

For use with gates with particularly large posts.

twist UG:

For use with swing gates where operator must be concealed.

twist XL:

Super-strength swing gate operator for oversized gates, can be used anywhere for right and left stops as well as in one and two leaf operation.

Applications:

Suitable both for residential properties and industrial door/ gate systems.

Radio control system:

- Somloq Rolling code:

  • Protected against code scanning, preventing misuse by non-authorised persons.
  • The procedure of frequency modulation (FM) used is less susceptible to malfunctions and increases transmission security.
  • The receiver is able to differentiate the radio signal of its 'own' transmitter from other radio signals and securely receive it.

- SOMloq2:

  • The future-proof SOMloq2 radio control system offers maximum protection against hackers due to 128-bit AES encryption with Rolling code.
  • The auto-repeat function ensures convenient opening while approaching the building. The output radio signal repeats in a certain cycle to enable optimal availability.
  • With the innovative hop function, the range is extended, as radio signals are forwarded from SOMloq2 receivers.
  • Transmitters with SOMloq2 are backward compatible with the Somloq Rolling code radio control system, making it possible to control existing operators and radio receivers.
