Exciting New Product Updates to the LA500

Full Time AC Run Operation with Battery Back-Up -  AC Run transformer provides constant power to the Operator and utilizes full battery power reserve for operation on battery back up.  

Switched Accessory Power -  Conserves power for when it is needed most to run cycles on battery backup or when running on solar power by turning off any accessories connected to this output 10 seconds after the gate is closed .  This feature is in all new production and replacement control boards.   

Party Pass - "Gate Hold Open" Feature - This feature is ideal for parties or other events where the gate needs to be held open for a period of time to allow free/easy access to the property.  Simply press the reset button with the gate in the open position, and you can conveniently hold it in the open position without having to open the control box.
