       Gate Opener Features Top of Page

    • LIMIT SWITCH SYSTEM - The LiftMaster Elite SL3000UL8 is manufactured with a precision limit switch system. This system uses high speed ball bearings and high quality components for efficiency.

    • REVERSING SENSOR - The digital current sensor continuously monitors the motor current. It can be set for both the opening and closing cycles. If the gate is closing and hits a vehicle, the sensor detects the increased load on the motor and reverses. If the gate is opening and hits a vehicle, it stops and reverses 4 to 6 inches. The sensor is smart enough to operate on off-level installations and not to react to wind resistance.

    • OMNICONTROL BOARD - All new UL model LiftMaster Elite SL3000UL8 commercial slide gate operators now use the OmniControl board for enhanced, reliable operation conforming to the new UL-325 and UL-991 specifications. This advanced electronic control board now offers integrated functions to make all input and outputs of the gate operator easy to access. It offers solid state motor control, spike suppressors, safety alarm and many other unique features. The new OmniControl board assures the latest requirements and most advanced technology in the industry, keeping all Elite commercial operators in a class by themselves.

    • PLUG-IN LOOP DETECTORS - These high quality loop detectors are for use with the Elite Omni Board. The electronics are manufactured exclusively for Elite by Reno A&E, a respected name in loop detection technology. With Elite’s proven design and integration technology, these component detectors will make installation and maintenance of loop detection systems simple. They are available for use with the LiftMaster Elite SL3000UL8 for Exit Loop and Safety Loop.

    • STANDARD LIGHTENING PROTECTION - Elite undertook the project of protecting the Elite commercial gate operators against lightning strike with a level of protection up to a 50 foot radius of near lightning strike. The result of this project is a terminal block that has been specifically designed to prevent damage to the OmniBoard caused by lightning strike. The ability to handle high power and the fast response capability is accomplished by the use of a two-stage, hybrid network of surge suppressors integrated in the terminal block. This network of surge suppressors will protect a total of 11 lines for the gate operators (3 lines for the primary/secondary communication, and 8 lines for the various input commands). The 110 volt power line protection on the OmniBoard and the Plug-In Loop Detectors is built into the OmniBoard itself.
