GTO Solar Panel is a solar battery
charger for the GTO Automatic Gate Openers. The Solar Panel is
necessary for gate opener installations more than 1000 ft. from
an AC power source, or where solar power is preferred. A Five
(5) Watt Solar Panel (19 3/8" x 8 1/2") and a Ten (10)
Watt Solar Panel (19 3/8" x 15 1/4") are available from
GTO. These solar panels come with everything you need for installation
including 8 ft. of low voltage wire.
There are a number of factors which determine the number of solar
panels you will need, such as: the weight of your gate(s); the
amount of sunlight the solar panel will receive; the number of
operating cycles per day; and the number of gate opener accessories.
The 10 Watt Solar Panel (available through PRO dealers only)
should be used with the GTO/PRO 2000 (2200) and the GTO/PRO-SL-1000
map and table illustrate the maximum number of cycles per day
to be expected in a particular area, using either one or two solar
panels. The figures shown are for winter (minimum sunlight) and
do not account for any use of accessory items (accessories draw
additional power from the battery).
