6400 In-Ground Swing Gate Operator


DKS 6400 installs in-ground, making it virtually invisible – and quiet – satisfying the most sophisticated automation needs without being detrimental to the original gate design. Invisible and powerful, the motor/drive mechanism is constructed in die-cast aluminum with a special corrosion-proof treatment, and because the drive unit is gear-driven, there is no need to worry about hydraulic leaks, check valves, or pumps.

The in-ground, self-supporting foundation box is built from corrosion-proof steel and has a galvanized steel cover. A lockable manual release lever is designed so it can be operated from inside or outside the gate.


6400 In-Ground Swing Gate Operator

The Unseen Gate Operator

The Model 6400 installs in-ground making it virtually invisible and satisfies the most sophisticated automation needs without being detrimental to the original gate design. Invisible and powerful, the motor/drive mechanism is constructed in die-cast aluminum with a special corrosion-proof treatment, and because the drive unit is gear driven, there is no need to worry about hydraulic leaks, check valves or pumps. The underground self-supporting foundation box is built from corrosion-proof steel and has a galvanized steel cover. A lockable manual release lever is designed so that it can be operated from inside or outside the gate.

The 6004 Column Mount operates on 24 Volt DC power and features built in limit switches that precisely control the start / stop speed, and travel of your gate. The microprocessor based electronic control board provides many advanced features typically not found in operators in this class. The control box can be powered by 120 Volt AC, which is then converted to 24 Volt DC to power the actuator and control board. Two 120 Volt control boxes are available to choose from, Deluxe and Standard. The Deluxe control box includes three 120 VAC outlets to power accessory transformers. Both include 3.5 Ah (Amp Hour) batteries for back-up power operation. You can also select our Solar Powered control box, which eliminates the need for high voltage power runs.

Product Features

 

DKS - Solar - Control Box

 

 

Solar Powered Control Box & AC Powered Control Box

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.

 

 

 

 

Overlap Feature

The 6400 In-Ground Swing Gate Operator comes with an overlap feature designed for dual gates. In-Ground Operator does not interfere with the aesthetics of the gate.

 

Keyed Release

Essential for manual operation in the event of a power outage.

Loop Detectors

Easy plug-in ports for DKS Loop Detectors.

Smooth Operation

Soft Start / Soft Stop provides smooth gate operation.

Easy Access

Built with a removable cover for maintenance or setting adjustments.
