Gate drives


STArter


   




The compact sliding gate operator

The STArter is one of our tried-and-tested sliding gate operators.
The compact operator impresses with its easy installation, the usual SOMMER quality,
its reliable operation and the large selection of additional safety devices.
It makes gate automation possible.

For sliding gates with a travel length of up to 6 m and a gate weight of 300 kg.

 

Product advantages

Protection for you and your loved ones
The operator learns on its own and runs in the currently optimal way thanks to the DPS (Dynamic Power System).
It adapts to the environment and always moves at the same speed. For the operator, obstacles mean that it suddenly needs more force.
In this case, it stops or reverses.
This prevents injury and damage to property. SOMMER also offers additional safety accessories. (Photo eyes, safety contact strips, etc.)

 

Long lifetime thanks to gentle soft running
The gate and the operator are preserved thanks to the "Open" and "Close" soft running.
Shortly before the gate end positions, the speed decreases, which preserves the mechanics and increases the lifetime.
No annoying closing noises.

 

High quality and stable
The rugged glass fibre reinforced plastic rack with integrated steel core ensures maximum stability and quiet roll behaviour.

 

Functions which make daily life easier
The partial opening function can be used to open a part of a gate and reach the property by bike, for example.
With the automatic closing function, you can be sure that the gate is always locked behind you.
After the photo eye is passed, the gate automatically closes after a set time.

Battery pack for power failures
During a power failure, the operator can be run in emergency mode with our battery pack.

 

Environmental and cost efficiency
Consumption of electricity and environmental impact are low thanks to the efficient ring core transformer.

twist 200 E

 



The powerful swing gate operator for gates up to 2.5 m leaf width

With its compact design the twist 200 E can be universally used: for gates opening to the left or right, in 1- or 2-leaf operation.
The controlled soft run reduces speed right before the end positions, avoiding wear and tear on gate and operator.
What more could you fancy?

 

Product advantages

Functions which make daily life easier
The walk-through function can be used to open a gate wing and reach the property by bike, for example.
This makes an additional garden gate unnecessary, making it possible to fully utilise the whole width of your driveway.
With the automatic closing function, you can be sure that the gate is always locked behind you.
After the photo eye is passed, the gate automatically closes after a set time.

 

Flexible installation properties
The large opening angle of 120° is ideal for slanted driveways.

 

Maximum temperature resistance
The operator was designed for extreme temperatures of -30 ° C to +70 °C.

 

Protection for you and your loved ones
The control technology monitors the movement forces according to EN 12445 by means of electronic motor monitoring (LFT).
Continuously tested and programmed force values, also detects environmental changes
(temperature, mechanical door wear, frost and ice) and compensates for these.
This ensures optimal security for people and vehicles at all times.
SOMMER also offers additional safety accessories. (Photo eyes, safety contact strips, etc.)

 

Safety due to automatic locking
The strong automatic locking of the motor prevents the gate from being pushed open manually.
Without the automatic locking operator, the gate wing could damage your car if a heavy gust of wind hit the gate.

 

Thought out to the last detail
Since the cable outlet is not on the underside, damage caused by pulling on the floor is prevented.
This enables a lower mounting height on the stable gate bottom beam. Better transmission of force and better appearance are the result.

 

Combining operators
If the active gate wing is small, you typically can use a weaker operator than with a large gate wing.
You can save space and money by taking advantage of the option of combining operators.
Mixed operation is possible with the twist 350 and twist XL operators*.

twist 200 EL

 



The powerful operator with even more lift

With even more lift, this operator is a real all-rounder: the longer travel length of 550 mm ensures the highest installation
flexibility even if the posts are very wide.

 

Product advantages

Large opening angle
The operator can achieve an opening angle of up to 130°.

 

More strength for more security
Through the incline position, the operator can provide a higher force when the gate is closed so that breaking in is more difficult.

Additional special features for longer travel lengths for the twist 200 EL

The operator can also be fitted to very wide posts without removing them beforehand

An opening angle of up to 130° is even possible with this operator
