Question about Elite Sl 3000 Ul Sliding Gate Operator

2 Answers

I have an Elite gate operator. I had several friends over for a visit and they all arrived at the same time. Three cars lined up at the entrance gate and the first car punched in the gate code. The gate opened allowing the first car, then the second car to safely enter the property. As the third car passed through the gate following the second car, the gate began closing striking the side of the third car causing some damage. Please advise what you think the problem might be. We have recently repaved the driveway with approximately two inches of new asphalt, would this interfere with the magnetic loop sensor not being able to pick up the cars coming in as they passed over the loop????

You need to put safety beams in if you have your auto close function enabled on your gate motor. If you had the safety beams installed your gate wouldn't have closed on the 3rd car. The loop you have installed is only really for cars leaving your premises without you having to open the gate or them entering a code to open from the inside

My elite operator will only close part way, seems to only happen cold nights 52 degrees-F works well in the day time no matter the temperature, limit switches checks out ok, I disconnected the loop...

You will have to increase your force (sensitivity) settings on the p.c. board. Without knowing what type of board you have I can only guess. There should be a pod you can rotate with a screwdriver to increase the force. If it has an LCD readout with menus search the menus for force or obstruction, then increase it.

The outgoing gate has a positive stop on it, but

Well it seems that their could be a limit switch problem. also if someone has replaced the limit switch they could have not connected the wires back up correctly. if your wiring and switch are correct than you have a bad circuit board. my opinion is to not even fix it and replace the whole opener with a gto-pto gp sl50 They are the most reliable opener out so far and come with all the features that elite charges extra for like a battery backup for instance.

Lost keys to security gates living in a mews

If this is a shared entrance - you need to contact the main keyholder - maybe a grounds management company. Most systems like this operate under a restricted profile key system. New keys are only issued against signatures.

If it is just your own property - Provide proof of this to a registered locksmith for them to change locks.

the elite does not have that function, your are going to need to look for a time clock that holds open your gate...... the outside phone system or a programmable time clock that has been added to your gate...... oh this is an old post sorry. :)
