Australia's Leading Supplier of
Solar Powered Farm Gate Automation

Farm gates are a little different when it comes to automation. They are often quite wide and almost always quite light and flexible.

BMGi's kits have been designed and manufactured for farm gates.  We put a lot of thought and years of knowledge into these products when creating our solar automation to withstand the Australian conditions.  With the use of a weatherproof case, deep cycle 14ah battery, new and improved control board, these kits will do the job and be a reliable and secure unit sfor years to come.

These automatic solar powered gate openers are powered by our 12v 14ah deep cycled battery and charged via our high power 45watt solar panel using the PWM solar controller. Our testing with a fully charged 14ah battery over a 21 day period allowed us to do approximately 200 cycles over that time before the battery went flat.

From the mounting brackets to the motor, everything is designed to work well with a farm gate.

These farm gate opener kits are suited up to your 14ft farm gates or 4.2mtrs.

Our auto gates are supplied Australia wide, in kit form ready for DIY installation to almost any properly hung swing gate, with literally thousands of our solar gates already installed across the country.

E8 Swing Gate Opener

Stainless Durability

Among the most attractive properties of this solar farm gate opener is its high grade 439 stainless steel casing for its durability and resistance to corrosion, allowing it to withstand the wear and tear of everyday usage.

solar and electric gate opener

Solar or Mains - Energy Efficient

Our farm gate openers are available in both solar and electric options. The solar kit for your farm gate is the perfect solution if you don't have access to mains power or you want to be energy efficient.

However our electric kit is low voltage which means you can have power up to 50mtrs away, allowing you to run low voltage cable yourself legally without employing an electrician.

With class leading efficiency, our solar farm gate openers are truely designed for solar applications. With standby capability up to 28 days you can rest assure that the E8 system will continue to operate during prolonged overcast weather conditions.

Solar panel

45 watt Solar Panel

The E8 farm gate opener comes with our 45 watt solar panel to provide you with a higher rate of charge for your 12v 14ah battery.  Also with our solar panel is a mounting bracket for easy installation and 10mtrs of cable.

Also supplied in our kits is a PWM solar controller.   These controllers operate at a relatively constant harvesting efficiency regardless of the size of the solar panel.  The PWM controller works by reducing the amount of power going into your battery as it approaches capacity. When your battery is full, PWM controllers maintain a state of “trickle”, which means they supply a tiny amount of power constantly to keep the battery topped up.

no maintenance gate opener

Zero Maintenance

The farm gate's stainless steel actuator arm is a maintenance free system which provides a user friendly experience.  Providing your gate is well hinged, level and plumb with the post then you will have a stress free operation of your gate.

round post brackets

Optional Round Post Brackets $30/pr

Most rural farm gates are hinged from a round post.  We have designed round post brackets as an option when purchasing our kits. 

The standard bracket supplied in the kit is a flat 100mm x 90mm bracket which can still be used on round posts by chiseling out a small section for the standard bracket to attach too. 

However, if your post is around the 150mm in diameter or smaller then you may prefer the option of these round post brackets. This way you don't run the risk of weaking your post by chiseling into it or you may prefer less messing around when doing the install.

Round gate bracket

Optional Round Gate Bracket $30 ea

We have had a round gate bracket fabricated to suit Australia's rural farm gates.  This gate bracket acts like a clamp around your farm gate tubing which provides a flat surface for the standard gate bracket supplied in the kit to attach too. 

Using this round gate bracket allows easy adjustment when first setting up your kit and also doesn't require drilling through your gate unlike the standard gate bracket requires.

push open bracket

Push to Open Bracket $20 ea

Does your farm gate push out towards the road?  No problem!
Using our 'push to open bracket' you can have the actuator arm positioned on the inside of the property which then allows the arm to push your gate outwards. 

Take note that your actuator arm will take up approximately 200mm into the driveway area (as shown in image opposite) when the gate is in the full open position.

If you cannot afford to lose 200mm of your opening then you can mount the actuator arm on the outside of the gate, now pulling the gate open you will not require the 'push to open bracket'.

Installation using the standard gate bracket and also added a vertical upright to their gate to attached the bracket too.  This is a pull to open setup with the actuator on the inside of the property, pulling the gate into open. They have also used the gate stop supplied in the kit as a ground stop when the gate is fully closed.

Installation using the standard gate bracket and drilling straight through their gate frame along with the standard post bracket.  This is a pull to open setup with the actuator on the inside of the property, pulling the gate into open.  Actuator is set to full retraction with the gate in the open position to prevent having to use a gate stop.

Best positioning for your solar panel is North facing and our installation manuals will advise the perfect degree depending on the area and state you're located in.

Customer has prepared for a push to open setup.  Using the round gate bracket for easy installation and adjustment, the standard post bracket and the push to open bracket also. The view of this image has the gate in the closed position.  The photo to the right is showing the finised setup with the gate opened.

Farm gate opener

Installation is showing another a push to open setup using the push to open bracket.  As you can see this bracket is providing a really good angle between the gate and arm that is required. Without the push to open bracket your actuator arm will run parallel with the gate causing all sorts of issues.
