Turtle Sliding Gate Opener SGO-SS-DIY24
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.
This is a high quality motor and all mechanics & limit switches etc. are completely concealed making it weather, and insect proof.
Get the ideal and simple solution for residential applications where mains is not available at the gate.
This is a quality motor with all metal gear. They don't make them much better! The rigid aluminum cast motor chassis will last for years.
You can wire low power systems yourself and this can save you a lot of money.
Comes with detailed installation instruction - Gate hardware installation kits and more accessories are available in or web shop.

- Is there any cable included?
Sorry, no cable included as every situation is different.
- What kind of cable can I use?
The diameter of the cable must be correct or the voltage loss will be too high. Use 2 core cable with a diameter of 1mm2 for a distance of up to 50m and 2.5mm2 for a distance up to 100m. Please note: For gate opening applications the diameter must not be quite as big as for garden light applications for the same distance because a garden light is a permanent consumer (during darkness) while gate openers are only temporarely active.
- Where can I get the right cable?
We usually have cable available in our web shop. You can search for the product code PWR-CBL- 24/2C.Alternatively you can use garden lighting cable available at Bunnings or similar outlets.
The diameter of the cable must be correct or the voltage loss will be too high. Use 2 core cable with a diameter of 1.5mm2 for a distance of up to 50m and 2.5mm2 for a distance up to 100m.
Please note: For gate opening applications the diameter must not be quite as big as for garden light applications for the same distance because a garden light is a permanent consumer (during darkness) while gate openers are only temporarily active and hardly ever need the full power they are rated for.
- Can I use a cable for a distance of 150m?
Yes you can. Just send us a message and we will discuss it with you.
