ELKA Solar Powered Vehicle Barrier Gate
EP2500 EP3000 EP3500
We now offer a fully electrical grid independent vehicle barrier gate option. The EP2500/EP3000/EP3500 Vehicle barrier gate series is identical to our P2500-P3500 vehicile barrier gates but come with the functionality to be fully powered by batteries that are re-charged by a solar panel. Our solar powered automatic gates provide all the features and durability necessary to withstand the harsh vehicle access environment while allowing the installer functional flexibility and simplified setup.
The combination of a brushless DC servo motor and sinusoidal lever system allows for a smooth travel of the gate arm with no bounce in the end position. This technology will not only provide an aesthetically pleasing look and operation but also a reliable and durable product. The technology is based on a low power consumption drive system that allows the integration of batteries and solar power system. On average the barrier gates can run 300 cycles per hour over a 12 hour period without recharging the batteries.
The drive unit mechanism consists of powerful 24V Brush-less DC-motor with a strong planetary gear, synchronized with a unique lever system that provides a smooth and controlled movement of the traffic arm. The construction is made of galvanized steel to provide the durability needed as well as protect from the environment
The housing was designed to withstand the harshest environments. The high grade aluminum used combined with a patent-pending clamping technology not only provides physical strength but also an effective protection against corrosion. Furthermore, the housing is powder coated to add to the corrosion protection.

Barrier gate arms are made of powder coated white aluminium, with red reflective signal stripes and rubber protection on the bottom of the barrier gate arm.
The solar panel is a high efficiency monocrystalline solar panel providing 24VDC at 85W power consumption. Batteries are 2 12 Volt 9 Amp Hour Rechargeable Sealed Lead Acid Battery featuring F2 Terminals connected in series. A 20A Solar Charge Controller assures the effective utilization of the batteries. Equipped with industrial-grade STM 8 microprocessor to control the charger and discharge process and it has reliable battery to charge and discharge period management.
Mutiple electric protection: over-current and short-circuit protection, inverse connection protection, low voltage and overcharge protection.
2x 12VDc 9 amp Hours batteries wired in series powered by a 85W 24VDC solar panel provide enough energy to run the EP2500/EP3000/EP3500 Vehicle barrier gates at a rate of 7200 cycles per day with 14 hours of no sunlight.
