    Howdy all...

    Looking for documentation on an old gate operator made by "Controlled Entry"
    in Utah. I've found some Google references to them but nothing really
    related to what I need.

    This thing is at least 10 years old...and was working up until some prairie
    dogs got into the unit and did some wire mods (chewing). We fixed all the
    shorts and opens, but gate won't operate - even by the manual override. I
    think the board is fried.

    Looks like a piece of shit. I'll probably end up replacing it with DKS but
    I'm always intrigued by the chase.

    Put WD40 on the hinges! :>)

    Try www.Accesslimited.com to get a phone number. They have been around gates
    for quite awhile. Maybe they can point you to the right direction.

    Welp this was a good one. Saturday I spent a few hours on it, like I said,
    reprogrammed the ancient Essex (goofy) keypad and got that relay tripping.
    Today, I got really pissed at it (after using WD40) and I literally kicked
    it (the sliding gate). I then was showing my helper that the keypad relay
    was closing but not the gate (I had my back to the gate now), he says;
    you've been drinking dood...turn around! The freeking gate is now working!
    My kick must have forced the gate run out switches into correct alignment.
    SHEESH. I guesss sometimes there's nothing like a good impact-adjustment :)

    What's REALLY nice is NOW I can bill the client for the all hours I've spend
    on the damn thing.

    You're very close! I wouldn't warranty anything on this gate...it was a
    botch install originally (10-15 years ago)...someone actually used cardboard
    and drywall screws to mount the keypad to the pedestal...and the intercom
    isn't even connected to anything! We will end up replacing it, but just
    wanted to get it working for the Toga party tomorrow night...then we'll
    propose a replacement for September.

    Actually, just creating this guy's invoice today will take me about 4
    hours...we've done so much work there in the past month. I gotta send you
    pix of the entertainment center we did...freekin' awesome - one of the best
    I ever did. It's really cool when client has unlimited funds and wants do do
    cool stuff! I LOVE the upper 20% market :)))
