Turtle Sliding Gate Opener SGO-BB-24DIY

This set allows you to plug the power control box with the step-down transformer in at the nearest power point. From there you can take a low voltage cable (24VAC) to the gate yourself to power the motor. No trenching needed as cable does not have to go underground like a 230V/AC cable. You can take the cable along a fence or just where it is most practical for you. This can save you a lot of money compared to a 230VAC installation where you need a registered Electrician for wiring and have to do some trenching.  

Get the ideal and simple solution for residential applications where mains is not available at the gate.

You can wire low power systems yourself and this can save you a lot of money.

I have no Power at the gate, can I use this system?

If mains is unavailable at the gate and taking it there impossible or too expensive than you should consider the DIY method. This approach works best where a power plug is available within 30-50m distance from the gate. This allows you to plug in a Turtle Step-down Transformer (see Photo) and take a low voltage cable to the gate yourself. The cable does not even have to go underground and the fact that you are using a low voltage system allows you also to wire the motor yourself. This is a very smart solution and should be your first alternative to check if mains is not available at the gate. Most TURTLE Automation Systems are available in a 12V or 24V version and suitable for this power solution.
