Ornamental Estate Gates

This table and map, compiled by Hoover Fence from various manuals, illustrates the maximum cycles per day to be expected during winter (minimum sunlight) conditions for various models. Spring and summer cycles will be more. This chart allows for about 300 mill amperes for accessories. Multiple or inefficient accessories may require additional charging wattage. Cycles per day are based on the maximum gate weight and length for the particular operator and assumes that the cycles will be spread out over a 12 to 14 hour period.
