    Default Gemini Gate Motor Sensors

    How can I connect sensors to my gate motor to prevent it from closing when there is an obstruction?
    Where do I connect it to?


    Stupid gate closed on a friends Defender last night. Luckily no body damage, only new driver side mirror required

    Just some advice when you are caught in a closing gate. Don't try to get out of the way! It will cause less damage to vehicle and gate.

    But I think the advice might be a little late.

    No idea. The box just says Gemini sliding gate motor or something like that. It's pretty old.

    Pretty old meens no battery backup?

    You gonna have to contact Gemini them selves as the contact for IR beams is normally next to the Trig connection.

    Correct. Thanks
    I think it's time for an upgrade of the whole system... The intercom is also broken

    Quick and efficient reply from Gemini to my query. No uhm and ahh, rather get installer out to look at your installation kind of crap.

    Reply from Gemini:

    Hallo Ben

    Jy kan wel beams op daai motor koppel , die 12 Volt wat na die beams gaan kry jy links bo op die pc board.
    Die neg. en com. binne die beam moet jy brug met mekaar en koppel dan die neg. van die beam op die rec neg op die foto.Dan neem jy die n/o op die beam en koppel dit direk op die pcb op die 4de punt van onder op die koppeling regs op die kaart. Die 4de punt is gemerk IRBM.
    As die onduidelik is kontak ons gerus op 012 804 1537/8.
