Industrial doors are generally equipped with an electric engine. With a push of a button the Compact door opens and closes instantly. Electric doors are user friendly and last longer because of the controlled movement.
All Compact doors are driven by an electric motor. The choice of the motor is determined by the dimensions and the weight of the door. In addition, other user specific factors like the available powersource (220 V or 380V), opening speed, opening frequency and the environment in which the door is installed are of influence.
The Compact door motor can be recognised by its orange color. Our motors come complete with control unit and ‘plug and play’ wiring. The moment the power plug is connected to the outlet the engine is ready for use.
The use of a top motor is necessary when there is less than 320 mm space on the side of the framework. Additional space of 230mm above the doorway is required for this motor.
A front motor, is required when there is less than 320 mm side space of and 230 mm space above the framework. However, the use of a front engine is restricted by the following:
|Motor||Voltage||Speed||Duty cycle||Power||Powerplug²||Max. Weight|
|RC150||1x230V 50Hz||19 cm/sec||25% IP54||0.75 kW||2-pin, 16A||155 Kg|
|RC175||3x400V 50Hz||19 cm/sec||60% IP54||0.75 kW||5-pin, 16A||190 Kg|
|RC250||3x400V 50Hz||19 cm/sec||60% IP54||1.1 kW||5-pin, 16A||275 Kg|
|RC300||3x400V 50Hz||19 cm/sec||60% IP54||2.0 kW||5-pin, 16A||389 Kg|
|RC300T||3x400V 50Hz||15 cm/sec||60% IP54||2.0 kW||5-pin, 16A||455 Kg|
When using a high-speed motor the time a door is open is significantly reduced. This results in a minimum loss of energy. Furthermore, the employees and products are better protected from adverse weather conditions.
During loading and unloading with forklifts a rapid opening door is not only desirable for efficiency but also to prevent collision damage.
NOTE: neutral required
Our range of control boxes consists of:
A combination of various controls is also an option. An emergency hand chain for example to open the door in case of a power outage.
