The control board can allow partial opening of up to 3m for pedestrian access. It also offers the option of maximum torque at initial thrust, providing effi cient operation and long life for the system. Cycle programming allows the option of setting a countdown of cycles so that after a certain time, the operator will pause for 8 seconds before opening as a reminder that the unit needs a service. The 2 digit display provides the state of automation – aiding problem solving eg.00=closed.
