The BLSL840 is the first choice for residential and commercial slide gate applications because of its many features. First, this full feature, state-of-the-art operator is built with a high-efficiency, switching power supply, along with a powerful, ultra-quiet, high-torque, maintenance-free, brushless DC motor. The 120/220VAC power source is connected to a switching power supply, which can output a proper, stable voltage to the gate operator even when the input voltage is fluctuating .

The brushless DC motor does not need brushes replaced like conventional DC operators, so it is practically trouble free! Due to these inherent characteristics, the brushless DC motor lasts up to 10 time longer than the conventional brushed DC motor. A brushless DC motor’s typical life expectancy is 10,000 to 20,000 working hours, compared to the conventional brushed DC motor that has a life expectancy between 2,000 to 5,000 working hours.

Note. This BLSL840 model can operate with a direct solar panel connection as an optional addition. We recommend using a bigger capacity battery like a 12V, 12Ah battery if the operator is used in this fashion.

The operator is also equipped with a built-in 24VDC battery backup system that uses two 12V, 7Ah lead acid batteries. Normally this can supply more than enough power to keep the gate working until the AC Power return.


  • Continuous duty
  • Two 12V, 7Ah Lead Acid batteries.
  • Max Gate Weight is 800Ibs and Max Gate Length is 40 ft.
  • Heavy Duty size 50 gearbox. Size 40 Chain, Nickel Plated.
  • Corrosion resistant, Powder Coated, heavy duty steel chassis.
  • Soft start and soft stop to minimize wear and tear on the gate system.
  • Dynamic Speed Control – No speed variation when gate load changes, or power switches between AC and battery. Slide gate works on slope without coasting.
  • Automatic Learning with Self Sync – Automatically synchronizes gates with different travel times for primary/Secondary gate installation.
  • Solar Priority Power Supply – With a larger solar panel, the gate will run on the solar panel instead of the batteries when the sun light is sufficient, saving battery life.
  • One Controlled Power Supply Output for Photo Beam Detector-In solar Installation.
  • Adjustable Leaf Delay-Delay on either leaf from the Primary unit in Primary/Secondary system.
  • Fail Safe/Secure Capability - Be able to set to fail secured, fail safe or open on power fail.
  • Working temperature is from -20F to +158F
