What separates the Max Megatron 1400 from similar models?

The Max Megatron 1400 sports a direct gear drive, meaning there are no chains, belts, or pulleys needed for opening and closing gates. Continuous cycles at extreme temperature ranges means that the Megatron 1400 won’t overheat during operation. Other unique mechanical features include:

  • Mechanical and electrical manual gate release functions
  • Intelligent ramp-up and ramp-down gate speed control for smooth operation
  • Heavy duty gear box 900:1 size 70 constant lubrication using special gear oil
  • Large output shaft 3.25” solid steel with cast-iron clamping system

 

Can I use Max Megatron 1400 to monitor the security of my gate?

Absolutely. Security is one of the primary features of the Max Megatron 1400, which comes equipped with built-in audible and remote alarms, tamper alert relay outputs (if gate is forced open), and regular status outputs for gate monitoring. Additional security features, unique to Max Megatron 1400, include:

  • Lockable cover with key lock release to prevent intruders and vandalism
  • High-traffic intuitive loop management system for better security
  • Built-in transaction buffer for high security
  • Direct motor control of job OPEN/CLOSE for manually moving a gate in case of emergency
  • Gate partial open recorder

 

Will my gate still be operable in the case of a power outage?

Because each operator includes a Max BC-7 battery module providing 400 cycles, a power outage won’t leave you stuck at your gate. Similarly, a dual-motor overcurrent safety shut off protects against any unwelcome power surge. Further electrical features include:

  • Lightning protection for up to 20K volts and 10K amps on all inputs and outputs (44 channels)
  • Low voltage wiring capabilities for remote power up to 1000 feet (no battery needed)
  • Solar-ready battery module with built-in advanced solar regulator
  • Switchable 115/230 voltage selection
