SE (Ranger) Series Expanded

The popular SE (Ranger) series of drive units is being extended further to provide a complete and cost effective range of drives for sprung and unsprung roller shutter doors.

The SE (Ranger) is a series of drives for doors which are counterbalanced or fitted with a separate safety brake. The drive unit can be either directly fitted to the door shaft, on sectional doors, or via chain gear transmission on roller shutters.
The series for sprung and unsprung roller shutter doors now includes a new single-phase Ranger 120W and will shortly include a 3-phase Ranger 220, meaning there’s a drive to meet almost any need.

 Product  Output torque  Supply  Website product
 Ranger 90  90 Nm  Three-phase   SE 9.32
 Ranger 90W  70 Nm  Single phase   SE 7.32 WS
 NEW: Ranger 120W  120 Nm  Single phase   SE 12.24 WS
 Ranger 150  150 Nm  Three-phase   SE 15.48
 Ranger 220
 220 Nm
  SE 22.24
The SE range of drives are also available with a built on frequency inverter (Fi drives) allowing doors to open and close very quickly yet safely, ideal for applications where speed of opening and high frequency of operation is required.

Why choose a Ranger drive unit for your rolling shutter door?
  • Cost effective – Ranger drives are a direct and cost-effective replacement for virtually all similar compliant drives on the market.
  • Hard wearing – precision made worm gears ensures a long, maintenance free life.
  • Easy to install – the Ranger has an industry-standard flange mount and can be mounted horizontally or vertically.
  • Flexible – drives can be handed on site and are offered with digital limits as standard
  • Easy to maintain – the inbuilt maintenance counters in the TS control panels provide for a regular service schedule.
  • Full control – as standard Ranger drives are supplied with digital limits allowing adjustment from ground level using a compatible TS Control Panel.
  • Built-in limit switches - all Ranger drives are supplied with directly driven, built-in digital limit switches to maintain a precise stopping position. All Ranger models include low level hand chain operation as standard.
  • Fully compliant – our drives and controls meet BS EN 12453 and BS EN 12604 standards. Using a GfA Ranger helps you to comply with the BS EN 13241-1:2003 European Directives for EU Construction Products and Machinery, Low Voltage and EMC.

Reminder – why you need 2 photo beams

In our January newsletter we included a note about the requirements for GfA to quote for two, rather than a single low-level photo beam. Hopefully this extract from the DHF Revised versions of EN 12453 and EN 12604 helps clarify the situation: Supplementary device to reduce the probability of contact

(Applies to automated systems installed post 2018)

If a supplementary device to reduce the probability of contact is required, and if the distance between the supplementary device and the opposite edge of the door leaf is equal or greater than 150 mm such a device is needed at both sides of a sliding door and vertically moving non-protruding door (see below).
To be compliant with the regulations our sales team will quote for two low level photo beams, unless you are able to confirm at the quotation stage that a single photo beam can be used.

For advice on compliance with the latest regulations talk to our Technical Team.  Call 01926 452452 option 2, or email
