BGU-D SERIES: 1/2 HP Barrier Gate with Battery Backup

The Nortek Security & Control Family of Brands

Now Includes APeX Controller!

For traffic control and parking applications, available in 1/2 horsepower, 115V supply voltage, various arm lengths.

Through switch selections, the gate operator is universal and suitable for all installation and operational functions. Switch selection allows for full flexibility as to how and when the arm comes down in traffic control situations.

The BGU-D has four programmable options for gate operation in case of an AC power failure:

With Fail Safe selected, if AC power fails and the backup battery voltage becomes low, the gate will cycle open and remain open until AC power is restored or the battery gets charged by solar panels. Then, the BGU-D will resume normal operation and auto-close if programmed to do so.

With Fail Secure selected, if AC power fails and the backup battery voltage becomes low, the gate will cycle closed and remain closed until AC power is restored or the battery gets charged by solar panels. Then, the BGU-D will resume normal operation.

With Open Immediate selected, if AC power fails the operator will cycle open immediately and remain open until AC power is restored. Then, the BGU-D will resume normal operation and auto-close if programmed to do so.

With Close Immediate selected, if AC power fails the operator will cycle closed immediately and remain closed until AC power is restored. Then, the BGU-D will resume normal operation.
