Sample Application: Automatic Gate Openers

Have you ever encountered those fancy automatic gates? You know the ones - maybe they lead to a parking lot, a warehouse, a movie studio, or a private drive. Well, AM Equipment makes the DC gear motors to power those gates.

AM Equipment provides controlled motion solutions for varied applications, including automatic gates. Our 226 Series Long Life DC gear motors are weather-resistant and durable—ideal for outdoor settings. These are high-torque motors that can easily handle tough tasks like operating gates.

Another bonus? Since the 226 Series are 12 V or 24 V DC motors, they can be used in remote locations and operated with solar power.

Sample Application: Solar Panel Positioning

Not only can AM Equipment's DC Gear Motors lift, lower, deploy, retract, rotate, oscillate, open and close, they can also do elevation and azimuth positioning for solar panels.

What's azimuth positioning?  A very fancy term for rotation to follow an astronomical object--in this case, our very own sun.  Elevation positioning refers to the tilting motion of the solar panels to face the sun, no matter its height in the sky.

A solar panel that follows the movement of the sun is far more productive than a stationary one, and we’re proud that our DC Gear Motors support the green energy industry.
