Installing and setting up for the Ultima DACE Motor
Sliding gate track
Ensure your wheels are in good condition and that you can manually push your gate without any change in your push force.
It's not advised to use 3 wheels
A gate stop is required for the open position. This will prevent the gate from running off the track if the gate fails to stop.
The motor will learn from this stop.
The gate catcher is required for the closed position of the gate. This will help prevent anyone from trying to lift your gate off the track as well as a fail safe for stopping.
The motor will learn from this stop catcher.
Accessing the motor and removing the lid
Placing the motor into manual override
To check if the motor is already set to manual mode, try turning the cog clockwise. If the cog turns then you know it's already in manual mode and if it doesn't turn then follow the instructions below.
Open the 'manual release door' and rotate the thumbwheel clockwise up to 5 full revolutions which should release the cog and place the motor into manual mode. The thumbwheel should not be allowed to rotate too far.
To re-engage the motor when you have it setup on the gate, rotate the thumbwheel counter clockwise while pushing on the gate until you hear a click in the gearbox.

Wiring up and commissioning your motor
Once your gate and motor are setup correctly, you can then move onto wiring up your power option which will be either transformer or solar and connecting your 12v battery. You will find these details on page 18 of your user manual. We recommend commissioning your motor first before adding any other accessories and operating the gate a few times to make sure your setup is correct and the motor is operating as it should.
