    SECTION 5 NEW SITE INSTALLATION PREPARATION 5. New Site Installation Preparation 5.1. General Considerations for the Installation Always recommend the fitment of additional safety equipment such as safety edges and safety beams, for additional protection against entrapment or other mechanical risks. Check that no pipes or electrical cables are in the way of the intended installation. Check that enough space is available for the gate operator, specifically for the release handle (See Section 7.1.2.
  • Page 14: Endstops

    SECTION 5 NEW SITE INSTALLATION PREPARATION 5.2. Endstops Fit opening and closing endstops capable of stopping the gate at rated speed. Refer to the specifications at the beginning of this manual for the operating speed. Make H1>H2 to ensure gate will not jump over the endstop. Opening and closing endstops are mandatory and must be fitted to prevent death or accidental injury as the operator uses and confirms these limits during operation.
  • Page 15: Starting And Running Forces

    SECTION 5 NEW SITE INSTALLATION PREPARATION 5.4. Starting and Running Forces Test the starting force of the gate as per the diagram. Use a pull scale in both directions to determine the maximum amount of pull force required to set the gate in motion. Determine the running force of the gate by continuing to pull on the scale with just sufficient force to keep it running.

    LUBRICATION 6. Lubrication The internal gearset of the D5 SMART is lubricated by means of an oil bath. The D5 SMART is supplied with oil in its gearbox. The D5 SMART does not require routine oil changes. However, in the event of the unit losing oil due to stripping down or mechanical damage, the correct replacement oil is Castrol Syntrax Long Life 75W-90.
