This “Slave” Modus motor unit suitable for standard gate wings up to 3.5-meters and 350Kg

Made in Italy, the home of gate automation, Modus is a stylish and modern system. It is powered by a 240V mains power or SOLAR power.

This unit can be configured as a set with one of four options:

  • For double swing gate - With Modus XL MASTER motor – see Kit on this shop.
  • For Single wing gate - With control box STAR G8 for single wing (- needs to be ordered as separate items on this shop.
  • For double wing gate - Two Modus XL SLAVE motors and Control Box Star G8 - needs to be ordered as separate items on this shop.
  • For solar single or double with solar power and control Box (also including Star G8 control Unit).

The motors are 24V and will open gate wings of up to 350 Kg, and 4-meters in length. The Modus Articulated arm kit is the ideal choice to be fitted on new or existing gates due to the wide range of positional adjustments. The system is very easy to program thanks to its automatic learning function.

The Modus boasts many innovative features, including a slow-down facility on opening and closing, electronic obstacle detection to ensure safety, first safety input for infrared photocells, secondary safety input for additional photocells or safety edges, and has partial opening for pedestrian use. The benefits of a low voltage system have the capacity for high cycle uses, the options of battery backup in case of power cuts, and SOLAR power

When using the raising hinge arm/ and /or solar power - the max specifications of the gate – weight, length and speed- is reduced by 30%
