Solar Powered Swing Gate Operators

  • Zero Draw - power when you need it.
  • More gate operator cycles per battery charge.

The DKS 6002, 6003, 6004 and 6400 swing gate operators can be Solar Powered by using any of our Solar Control Box options. Our new 0.0 Amp SBPD (Pat Pend) circuit* insures that battery power is used only when the gate operator is activated. This means there is no use of battery power until the operator is engaged, which provides you with more gate operator cycles per battery charge. This is ideal for remote locations where no power is available. DKS offers three solar power control box options allowing the system to be designed for your application requirements.

* Zero draw is obtainable using keyed access control only. Keypads, Proximity readers, or RF remotes extract a low draw.

You may qualify for a 30% tax credit off of the cost of the gate operator
