Swing gate operator twist M / twist ML

Drehtorantrieb twist M
twist M
The powerful swing gate operator for gates up to 2.5 m leaf width

With its compact design the twist 200 M can be universally used: for gates opening to the left or right, in 1- or 2-leaf operation. The controlled soft run reduces speed right before the end positions, avoiding wear and tear on gate and operator. What more could you fancy?

twist ML: with even more lift, this operator is a real all-rounder: the longer travel length of 550 mm ensures the highest installation flexibility even if the posts are very wide.

Product advantages

Functions which make daily life easier
The walk-through function can be used to open a gate wing and reach the property by bike, for example. This makes an additional garden gate unnecessary, making it possible to fully utilise the whole width of your driveway.
With the automatic closing function, you can be sure that the gate is always locked behind you. After the photo eye is passed, the gate automatically closes after a set time.

Flexible installation properties
The large opening angle of 120° is ideal for slanted driveways.

Maximum temperature resistance
The operator was designed for extreme temperatures of -30 ° C to +70 °C.

Protection for you and your loved ones
The control technology monitors the movement forces according to EN 12453 by means of electronic motor monitoring. Continuously tested and programmed force values, also detects environmental changes (temperature, mechanical door wear, frost and ice) and compensates for these.
This ensures optimal security for people and vehicles at all times. SOMMER also offers additional safety accessories. (Photo eyes, safety contact strips, etc.)

Safety due to automatic locking
The strong automatic locking of the motor prevents the gate from being pushed open manually. Without the automatic locking operator, the gate wing could damage your car if a heavy gust of wind hit the gate.

Power failure - what now?
To open your gate when there is a power failure, the mechanical emergency release can be activated manually with a key. Even if there is strong contact pressure on the operator, the release lock can be triggered with low application of force and you can get to your property.

Thought out to the last detail
Since the cable outlet is not on the underside, damage caused by pulling on the floor is prevented. This enables a lower mounting height on the stable gate bottom beam. Better transmission of force and better appearance are the result.

Combining operators
If the active gate wing is small, you typically can use a weaker operator than with a large gate wing. You can save space and money by taking advantage of the option of combining operators.
Mixed operation is possible with the twist 350 and twist XL operators*.

* twist 200 E/EL operators and twist 350-/XL control units can only be operated in combination with the "twist XS" (item no. 3248V000) conversion set.
