The SL-150DC was designed to meet the demands of gate installers who want a gate operator that can handle heavy traffic, commercial/industrial heavy gates and/or extreme weather conditions. The combination of its heavy duty frame, reliable gearbox and powerful brushless DC motor make even the most challenging installations simple and easy. The SL-150DC has the option of ½ HP and 1HP motors capable of moving up to 3,000 lb. and 4,000 lb. gates, respectively.

DC operators are equipped with a control board that offers an array of features that include a programmable relay and leaf delay, slow start/stop algorithm, and solar power capability. The integrated battery backup offers up to two weeks of uninterrupted operation in the event of a power outage. The brushless DC motors are smooth and quiet but are powerful and durable and require zero maintenance. As with most of our AC operators, our DC operators now include an emergency foot pedal release and a built in loop rack.
