Automatic Gate 12-Volt Battery
Battery selection for a solar powered gates will vary in certain parts of the country. If installation
is in region 2 it is recommended that a battery with larger reserve capacity be used. Region 2 only
receives on average 3 hours of solar radiation per day meaning that many days have no useful sunshine.
In these installations a higher reserve capacity is desired.
The recommended battery for any automatic gate operator is a Group U-1 sealed maintenance free
battery (typically 30 to 35 amp-hours). This type of battery delivers enough reserve capacity for weeks
of operation in case of power outages when AC charged or on cloudy days when solar charged. The
offers a temperature range that will not require heaters to prevent freezing and add
drain on the battery.
