FAAC 402 Hydraulic Swing Gate Openers
The 402 Compact Operator is an automatic, light-duty gate operator it can accommodate a gate leaf up to 10 ft (3m) in length and up to 900 lbs (410 kg) in weight.
Note: The 402 Compact Operators are not recommended for use with solid gates.
The self contained 402 operator is an electro-hydraulic unit consisting of an electric motor, a pump, a valve assembly and a hydraulic cylinder, all housed in an anodized aluminum oil reservoir.
All models of the 402 (1044682.5) operator have one hydraulic lock.
The CBC version is designed to lock when the piston is extended. The CBA version is designed to lock when the piston is retracted.
The hydraulic lock is a service device rather than a security device. Additional external locks are
Recommended under the following conditions:
• Your gate leaf is 10 ft or longer.
• Your installation site requires tight security.
• Your gate site is subject to vandalism.
• Your gate site is subject to strong or very gusty wind.
• Your gate system has an open-hold-open device.
The electronic control panel is a microprocessor-based controller that accepts a range of product accessories and reversing devices to allow flexibility in designing the gate system. The 450 MPS control panel allows you to set the opening/closing time, a leaf delay for a two leaf gate system, the operating logic for your gate system, the pause time, the reversing stroke, and the behavior of reversing devices.
For its protection, the single phase, bi-directional electric motor shuts off automatically if its operating
Temperature reaches 212 deg F (100 deg C). Also for the protection and proper operation of the 402 operator, each gate leaf on which it is installed must have a fixed positive stop in both the open and closed positions.
The 402 Operator also includes a triangular key operated Manual Release Mechanism and two bypass
Valves which precisely control the force applied to the gate leave(s). The Manual Release Mechanism is a key operated device that disengages or engages the hydraulic system of the 402 Operator. When the
Hydraulic system is disengaged; you can open and close the gate leaf by hand. Such manual operation of the gate leaf is necessary during installation and useful during power failures.
The two bypass valves located on the top of the operator needs to be adjusted to meet the safety Standards of FAAC International, Inc. The standards state the gate leaf should stop, if it encounters a force greater than 33 lbs. (15 kg). Once the pressures are adjusted, the bypass valve screws are covered so that the pressures are not altered.
Additional reversing devices such as photo beams or reversing edges should be installed to provide more complete safety for people and property. The electronic control panel is a microprocessor-based Controller that accepts a wide range of product accessories and reversing devices. Thus allowing for Flexible gate system design.
