       Gate Opener Description Top of Page

    Gate Opener - Estate Swing E-S1000H Heavy Duty Solar Gate Opener

    With the Estate Swing Solar series, your residential gate can be automated by tapping into the power of the sun. Estate Swing gate openers are designed to be easy to install for the average handyman. This unit comes standard with the kit items needed to automate your gate, including mounting brackets (hardware to affix brackets to the gate and column are not included).

    The Estate Swing 1000H includes a generous sized control box you can house a larger Group size 24 battery than most gate operating systems. A larger Group size 24 battery means more cycles during a time of power outages or low sunlight (if solar is being used). A fully charged Group size 24 deep cycle battery will provide up to 300 cycles or an average of 30 days usage on a basic system before requiring a recharge. Group size 24 battery is not included.

    The Estate Swing Solar series is designed with some of the same great features as the Estate Swing classic line but made with 12 volt power to enable the solar option. GateCrafters.com even provides solar panels (5 watt or 10 watt) within the DIY kit to make your purchasing choice hassle-free. The Estate Swing Solar series can be used with higher wattage panels with minimal modifications. Capable of adapting to extreme solar applications, you can match any size 12 volt battery (box fits max group size 24) and any wattage solar panel* to the system. * Solar panels must be matched up to compatible solar charger.

    Estate Swing gate opener features for DIY installers include: no learning procedure, magnetic limit switches, and fully adjustable brackets. Estate Swing Solar series has no learning procedure; because of its smart usage it runs from one limit to the other without having to learn the procedure to the processor. Meanwhile the magnetic limit switches are adjustable on the bottom of the arm; simply slide them to where you need them. The included fully adjustable brackets can be made to fit any situations. Installers have alternate parts for gate openers on hand; homeowners do not; that is why these brackets are designed to fit all needs (including push to open).

    This solar gate opener kit comes along with Estate Swing's unique user directed instruction manual. As the first user driven updateable manual for continuous improvement of installation ease, maintenance and troubleshooting updates, Estate Swing manuals are designed for the DIY installer. Gatecrafters.com knows that during your install, you might seek assistance. This is why we offer free seven days a week technical support!

    All Estate Swings are built to the highest standards worldwide. Each unit is put through rigorous quality control testing on each component. The Estate Swing E-S 1000H meets and exceeds UL325 standards for anti-crushing safety.

    The Estate Swing Solar Series - How Does it Work?
    The solar panel absorbs solar energy and charges the 12 volt battery (not included). The gate opener then runs off this charged battery. Your solar panel can be installed up to 250 feet away from the control box (and charge controller). If you are using the A/C charging option, instead of solar, your transformer can be up to 1000' away from the gate opener control box. For both of the above options the battery is maintained directly by either the solar panel or the transformer.

    One major benefit of this Estate Swing Solar series is that it only has one power supply connecting to the control board. Fewer wires means it's simpler to install and simpler to use. Fewer wires also means better protection against power surges. Reduced wire and the lowest standby draw on the DIY market makes the Estate Swing Solar series truly stand apart.


    GateCrafters.com is the DIY factor. GateCrafters.com further adds to most of our gate openers for easier DIY installation. We have developed exclusive components (example: easy adjustable mounting brackets), customized instructions, and offer a full spectrum of accessories to truly cover all aspects of the installation of your gate opener. In addition we have the largest staff of factory trained technicians in the US.

       Gate Opener Features Top of Page

    • NO Learning Procedure This is one of the most desirable features of this intelligent control board. Once everything is wired in you can just run your gate opener. All other openers have to go through a learning procedure to know how long to run for and other details. No hassles here.
    • Time Tested Design The Classic series of the Estate Swing is the identical design of the first electro-mechanical gate opener. This design has been used for over 30 years and is still in use on thousands of homes and businesses around the globe. This is the design that started it all and made people confident that electro-mechanical could be more reliable, efficient and cost effective than hydraulic gate openers.
    • Easy Access Adjustable Magnetic Limit Switches There are many pluses to the limit switches on this unit. They are easy to adjust and access. They are on the bottom of the exterior of the arm, simply slide them to the location needed and tighten down a screw. Secondly, both the open and closed point is adjustable; this gives you more flexibility of stopping points after the brackets are bolted into place. Lastly they are magnetic so there are no components to wear out or break from contact.
    • Adjustable Run Time/Soft Stop FOne of the parameters you can designate for this opener is a run time. The advantage of this is, again, it is not a learned procedure, but something you input manually as an adjustment for your soft stop. The purpose is to give an option for where you want soft stop to begin. If you make the run time the same as the actual run time from limit to limit it will slow down half way; as you extend the run time past that time the soft stop will become shorter and give you a faster opening time. The board makes it easy to set, it has a counter on it telling you how many seconds it takes to go from open to close - then you simply put that number or a number of your choosing to delay the slow down.
    • EZ read digital display notifications The display will indicate when it is sending poser to the electric lock, when it is open, when it is in auto-reclose pause countdown, when it is closing and visually counting the run time. All this info makes it easy for the Do-It-Yourselfer to understand their gate opener clearer and look like a professional installer.

    • Closed position lock release The Estate Swing classic is the ONLY gate opener on the market to release your solenoid gate lock for a second time after the closed limit is reached. Why is this a plus? It shows true appreciation for customer feedback. For years the number one complaint from customers is the solenoid gate locks take too much force to lock back into place. And with the advent of soft stop this has become even more of an issue. The Estate Swing classic send a 1 second burst of power to the lock to allow the lock to re-latch electronically rather than through force.

    • Obstruction sensing alarm Safety has always been the top priority for Estate Swing. The classic now comes with an alarm to let you know when a problem has occurred. If the gate makes contact with an obstacle it will stop and back up for 3 second to clear the obstacle. If the gate is jammed on the obstacle making an obstruction happen 3 times in a row the system will shut down and an alarm will sound until the system is reset notifying anyone around the gate that there is a problem needing immediate attention.

    • Low Draw Solar Board The E-S 1000 series has the lowest standby draw of any DIY solar gate opener on the market today (under 10mA).
    • Easily Adjustable Brackets The brackets are set up to be user customized to fit any need configuration; push to open, pull to open, mounting on back of post, mounting on side of post, etc.
    • Large Opening Arch Capabilities The E-S1000 has the ability to open gates up to 110 degrees, well beyond most other openers.
    • All Weather Compatible This arm can handle the cold, heat and everything in between.
    • Highest Level of Safety The Estate Swing E-S1000 automatically reverses directions when it comes in contact with an obstruction. The Estate Swing E-S1000 also has the safest method of controlling safety devices. All safety devices are set up on a Normally Closed circuit. Some gate openers are set up on a normally open circuit. What this means is that the Estate Swing E-S1000 is virtually fail-safe. If a safety device does not activate for any reason the Estate Swing E-S1000 will not operate, keeping your loved ones and assets safe. Gate openers with safety devices set up on a Normally Open connection will operate with the disabled safety device and the consumer will not know the safety device is inactive until it is too late!
    • Quick Manual Release Every unit comes with a quick release pin for the gate side bracket. If there is a rare instance where the battery has gone dead and the gate opener will not actuate you can simply remove the pin and swing the arm and gate to the open position.
    • Adjustable Performance Features Adjust the performance of your gate opener to fit your tastes, lifestyle and needs. You can adjust Pause Times, Opening/Closing Delays, Static Force, etc.
    • 12 Volt Output Terminals Convenient for accessories requiring power. i.e. locks, sensors, etc.

       Words from Senior Application Engineer, Anthony Gaeto Top of Page

    "The Estate Swing Solar series gate opener is a great combination of the simplistic board of the Estate Swing Classic which has been so popular and the solar maintenance methods of the top solar gate openers. There have been many attempts at dual purpose gate openers, meaning low voltage trickle charge and solar combined into one gate opener unit. However we have found the gate openers that work best are the ones that are built for solar and the battery is transformer charged separate from the system if desired. I will explain:

    The way the best solar gate openers work, including the Estate Swing Solar series, is that the gate opener board and motor run off of a battery only. All the charging is done directly to the battery. This is good because you can increase the size of your battery, you can increase the size of your solar panel, you can increase the size of the charge controller for faster charging or higher wattage solar panels; all leading to a more reliable gate opener system tailor made to your circumstances. Other gate opener systems have the solar panel feed the power it produces into the gate opener control board and the control board has a charge control built into it. The problem having the charge control built into the gate opener control board is it is a performance limiting factor. In order to increase battery size or solar panel size / wattage you have to match the right charge controller. If the charge controller that is built into the gate opener control board cannot handle the desired charging the system will not be capable of keeping up with your needs. For lesser used gate opener systems or systems in optimal sunlight this is ok, but if you have other plans like many access control devices, less than optimal solar conditions, etc having the flexibility of external charging is a huge plus.

    The other advantage of not running charging power through the gate opener control board is lightening protection. Having the low voltage lines from a transformer or solar panel leading directly to a battery instead of the gate opener control board creates a buffer that helps to protect against minor surges. We still recommend using lightning protection but if you choose not to, which we have seen many times over the years, your chances of having a surge mishap is decreased through this type of gate operator charging system.

    Having a system that is this DIY ready as well as solar ready has been something we have been after for a while. The DIY aspect of this gate opener is the other component that I truly value. It has adjustable brackets making the mounting easy (we have a video showing how to do this by the way). There is no programming, just a few parameters to set. Other gate openers have sequences to follow to get the gate opener to "learn" how to operate for your particular gate. The main problem with having programming is no matter how easy you make the procedure there is still a procedure and you are not familiar with it. This is a carryover from the times when all gate openers were installed by professionals. Professionals learn the procedure after a few times and it is no big deal; but why would a DIYer want to learn something they are never going to use again. The Estate Swing Solar gate opener is designed to simply run from limit to limit and stop on them, wire it up, set a few parameters and off you go with a running gate (we also have a video for parameter setting).
