Elgin, Illinois, June 14, 2010 – BTR Controls, Inc. a leading developer and manufacturer of custom controls for industrial doors, gates and docks today announces the introduction of a new Digital Gateway II® advanced integrated variable speed door controller.
The Digital Gateway II® is a universally compatible controller that allows high-speed door manufacturers the ability to increase the operating efficiency, reduce maintenance, and increase the energy savings in their customer’s manufacturing facilities.
Unique to the DGII design is a single processor for logic, safety and motor parameters thus ensuring immediate response under all conditions. Logic and power boards are both physically and electronically separated for maximum isolation. When coupled with the proprietary BTR encoder, the system becomes a closed vector loop offering energy savings with real time torque control of the motor, ensuring doors run smoother and last longer. Built-in fault diagnosis simplifies troubleshooting and corrective action. Color-coded plug-in terminals, bright, graphical display and no control transformer or external power supply makes installation quick and easy.
Included as standard is the BTR SeyWave® Wireless System for door sensor and remote pushbutton operators. It is an FCC and IC licensed product operating in the 2.4 GHz band for global acceptance. The door sensor uses full two-way communications and dual verification of safety device operation thus complying with the UL325 Entrapment Standard.
The DGII is designed for motors up to 2 HP at input voltages or either 120 or 230 volt single phase. Both provide a 230 volt, 3 phase output for the motor. The DGII is listed under CUL 508C and CUR 325.
