Solutions for Large Shutters and Doors with Single Phase Supply

Supplying reliable doors and shutters for locations with only single-phase supply can be a challenge, especially if the doors are large, putting a high demand on the motor driving the door.

If you have customers who have large barn doors, animal sheds or equipment storage facilities they want to know their door will open when they want it and can be securely closed, quickly.

GfA has a full range of drives suitable for locations where only single-phase supply is available. Unlike other motors on the market ours offer an industrial duty cycle, meaning reliable opening. By choosing one of our Fi drives you get the added benefit of speed, with shutters typically opening twice as quickly.

GfA drives for single phase supply

With the KE 40.40 Fi you can have smooth and fast opening, coupled with reliability on chain driven doors up to 7500mm x 7500mmm. Take a look:

Where only a single phase supply exists the KE 40.40 Fi version provides an industrial duty cycle with the added benefit of faster door opening times. The built-on frequency inverter offers the advantage of individually adjustable output speed with soft start as well as soft stop, reducing stress on the chain mechanism.

As with all our KE drives the door is driven via chain-transmission. To prevent doors falling back a safety brake of the appropriate size is required. In combination with GfA door controls TS 970, TS 971 or TS 981.

The KE drives for chain driven doors are not the only solution for single-phase locations, we also offer Safedrives
® (SI) and our SE range.

With the SE (Ranger) FI drives you can have smooth, fast opening coupled with reliability on sectional doors and chain or gear driven rolling shutters. The rolling shutters can either be non-counter balanced with separate safety brake or counter balanced. In combination with GfA door controls TS 970, TS 971 or TS 981, the built-on frequency inverter offers the advantage of individually adjustable output speed with soft start/stop.

For either sectional doors or rolling shutters requiring fast opening and closing the new Ranger 90 Fi (featured in last month’s newsletter) and 91 Fi are ideal.
