Is there a way that the MAT-DC-BB3 Mega Arm can be set up where the only way to close it is through the button, manually (even if the access control system opens it)?

Question: Greg out of Georgia wanted to know: We have a client that has a pair of your MAT-DC-BB3 Mega-Arm units that are integrated with a Lenel On-Guard access control system.  There are no ground loops or sensors; the arm is programmed to close after a few seconds.  There are hardwired open and close buttons as well.  The client is experiencing a problem where the arm has closed faster vehicles could get out of the way.  I have downloaded the installation manual but have not had an opportunity to review it in its entirety.  In the meantime, is there a way that the arm can be set up where the only way to close it is through the button, manually (even if the access control system opens it)?

Answer: Good afternoon Greg, as a matter of fact yes there is a way to turn that feature off…...

My SL575 Heavy Duty Gate Operator has a broken Stop Switch SINGLE button 3BCS. The manual gives part number 23-30716, however after searching on the net the switch actually looks like a switch PN# 23-34815. Are these switches compatible?

Charles has a more technical question: My SL575 Heavy Duty Gate Operator has a broken Stop Switch SINGLE button 3BCS. The manual gives part number 23-30716, however after searching on the net the switch actually looks like a switch PN# 23-34815. Are these switches compatible?

Answer: Sorry Charles they are not compatible… the 23-30716 is a STOP command switch located below the open and close buttons on the side of your operators control box. The 23-34815 is a RESET/STOP ALARM switch that controls the obstruction alarm sensor mounted on the alarm unit box of your SL575 operator.

Let’s talk about the commercial/parking applications receiver from LiftMaster. The LiftMaster STAR1000 Receiver with the new Security+ 2.0 technology is considered the next generation radio access control.
