Perth Automatic Sliding & Pedestrian Gate Upgrade
7 September 2022
AGM Automation was engaged by one of our Strata Management Companies to repair, replace and redesign the Pedestrian Gate & Sliding Gate for a complex in Forrestdale, Perth Western Australia.
Following a thorough inspection and a full report on our findings and recommendations AGM was able to achieve a cost effective and reliable solution quickly and efficiently.
Sliding Gate Automation Upgrade
The following is a report following visit by AGM Automation to inspect the site.
AGM attended site & found the sliding gate open. A build-up of debris was also visible on the ground track and the technician identified the gate had not been in operation for a while.
We completed our inspection and identified the controller’s encoder was intermittently faulty. This was causing the motor to continue running and due to age and negligence we were unable to repair encoder.
This meant the gate would only open and not close. We attempted to test programming but controls were unresponsive. We then bypassed the encoder and attempted to run the motor directly from low voltage power but the was still unresponsive.
We checked all other equipment (including the safety beam kit) and these were all working correctly.
It was unknown how many different remotes were onsite and AGM quoted the below for the client’s consideration:
