Motor is the backbone of any automatic gate. Two distinct types of motors are used in swing gates known as hydraulic or electromechanical. The motor is the device which enables the swing gate to open and close on its own instead of having to push it manually.

It is crucial to use a suitable motor for your gate otherwise it would not be able to last long and would be unreliable.

Most motors are powered by electricity so they need to be connected to the power source and they get power from photocells in case of power shortage.
