Electromechanical actuator for hinged gates: general overview

What are electromechanical actuators for hinged gates?

Electromechanical actuators are a type of automation that must be applied directly on the hinged gate wing. Actuators are robust, durable and quiet: therefore, fitting your gate with an automation means ensuring maximum practicality without causing irritating noise or other problems. These automations offer moment speeds and can be installed very easily on any existing gate; moreover, electromechanical actuators can be manually unblocked using a personalised key. Finally, electromechanical actuators for hinged gates can be completed with optional accessories, such as the multi-position fixing bracket, that allow their application also in the most complicated cases.

The benefits of a 12 V electromechanical gate actuator

The benefits of choosing a 12 V electromechanical hinged gate actuator are countless: they are suitable for residential, condominium and commercial use, since they can guarantee a 100% work cycle, withstanding continuous and intensive use. Low voltage electromechanical actuators include an efficient obstacle detection system called encoder; this way, hinged gate automations guarantee maximum anti-crushing safety, in compliance with the current regulations. The actuator can operate also if there is no power: specifically, optional batteries guarantee the correct operation of the automation under any circumstances. 

Types of electromechanical actuators for hinged gates

Electromechanical actuators are available in various versions to be chosen according to the type of hinged gate. One of the main differences among the various models is undoubtedly the type of motor that can be 12 V or 230 V. Another aspect to take into consideration is the length of the gate wings that can be up to 3 metres, 4 metres or 5 metres long. Therefore, regardless of specific requirements, it is possible to identify the most suitable electromechanical actuator.
