How does a battery work?


There are a lot of different kinds of batteries, but they all function based on the same underlying concept. “A battery is a device that is able to store electrical energy in the form of chemical energy, and convert that energy into electricity.

Batteries have three parts, an anode (-), a cathode (+), and the electrolyte. The cathode and anode (the positive and negative sides at either end of a traditional battery) are hooked up to an electrical circuit.

The chemical reactions in the battery causes a build up of electrons at the anode. This results in an electrical difference between the anode and the cathode. You can think of this difference as an unstable build-up of the electrons. The electrons wants to rearrange themselves to get rid of this difference. But they do this in a certain way. Electrons repel each other and try to go to a place with fewer electrons.

In a battery, the only place to go is to the cathode. But, the electrolyte keeps the electrons from going straight from the anode to the cathode within the battery. When the circuit is closed (a wire connects the cathode and the anode) the electrons will be able to get to the cathode. In the picture above, the electrons go through the wire, lighting the light bulb along the way. This is one way of describing how electrical potential causes electrons to flow through the circuit.

However, these electrochemical processes change the chemicals in anode and cathode to make them stop supplying electrons. So there is a limited amount of power available in a battery.

When you recharge a battery, you change the direction of the flow of electrons using another power source, such as solar panels. The electrochemical processes happen in reverse, and the anode and cathode are restored to their original state and can again provide full power.

Omnidirectional Antennas


An omnidirectional antenna is a wireless transmitting or receiving antenna that radiates or intercepts radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields equally well in all horizontal directions in a flat, two-dimensional (2D) geometric plane. Omnidirectional antennas are used in most consumer RF wireless devices, including cellular telephone sets and wireless routers.

In theory, a vertically oriented, straight conductor such as a dipole antenna measuring no more than 1/2 wavelength from end-to-end always exhibits omnidirectional properties in a horizontal (azimuth) plane. Multiple collinear (in-line) vertical dipoles also exhibit omnidirectional behavior in the azimuth plane; they can offer improved performance over a single dipole in some applications. If the conductor axis is not oriented vertically, then the antenna radiates and receives equally well in all directions in the plane through which the conductor passes at a right angle.

In the usual context, a so-called omnidirectional antenna does not perform equally well in all possible directions in three-dimensional (3D) space. Such a device, which can exist only in theory but can be approached in practice, is called an isotropic antenna or isotropic radiator.


FAS-J Slide 300 BBU Slide gate opener with battery backup comes in two different models, chain driven and rack and pinion (Pictured Above). The chain driven model works with a chain that is placed across the gate leaf and the operator pulls it open or pushes it closed when the chain runs through the gears. These small operators are rated for 500LBS and 20’ wide gates. They are the best option for the very affordable price point that we have them on our web site. They have also proven to be very reliable in years of use.

What type of traffic do you need to restrict?


In this post we will discuss one of the questions a buyer should ask themselves when considering purchasing a gate operator, which is: What type of traffic do I need to restrict?

The type of traffic you wish to control plays a big part in determining the type of operator you’ll need. Are you trying to control the flow of vehicular or pedestrian traffic?

Vehicular Traffic
In the case of controlling vehicular traffic, a Barrier Gate Operator is your best bet as a barrier gate’s boom is raised and lowered to grant or deny access to vehicles. If you’re looking to restrict pedestrian traffic, a barrier gate won’t be effective as a pedestrian can easily move around or below the boom to gain access to your property.

Pedestrian Traffic
If you’re looking to restrict pedestrian (as well as vehicular traffic) traffic on your property you’ll have to consider installing a Swing Gate Operator or a Slide Gate Operator depending on what your property will accommodate.

As their names imply, a swing gate operator manipulates a swing gate by swing it on a hinge to allow or restrict access to a property. A slide gate operator on the other hand manipulates a slide gate along a track horizontally to achieve the same goal of granting or restricting access to your property.

The type of gate operator you choose will depend on a few factors that you’ll have to take into consideration when choosing the type of operator you need to fulfill your needs. For help on figuring out the type of operator you’ll need to implement your security project, please give us a call at GateMotors.net @ 1-800-730-8382 and we’ll be more than happy to guide you along the process.

Residential Slide Gate Openers

It figures, you run back from the car to close the gate and the dog runs out. Now you have to sprint all over the neighborhood after Fido and you are already late for work.

If only there was a way you could slam the gate shut without having to get out of the car to do so? But there is! Residential slide openers from Gatemotors will help you shut them with your eyes closed. Of course, making sure that your house is secured isn’t the only benefit of the residential gate openers.

A gate opener does not refer to the remote control that opens the gate but the motor assembly that can be activated by a timer or remote control. The signals from the remote trigger the gate into sliding open and shut from a distance.

Give Crime the Boot

Almost every criminal knows how to pick a lock. Do you really want to put your family at risk? Install a residential slide gate opener and keep burglars away. No criminal will be able to access your property.  Each gate opener comes with a factory warranty as well.

Why Slide Gates?

A swinging gate is cumbersome to say the least, especially since it cannot be installed in closed spaces. How much are you going to back up the car to slide open the gate? A residential slide gate opener is convenient since it slides sideways on a track. No high winds will buffet a sliding door closed. A gate that swings indoors is sure to slam shut in bad weather.

Highest Level of Safety

Do you have children? There is no telling when a toddler might toddle to the gate after you. A residential slide gate opener will ensure that your kids never have any accidents when you are about to shut the gate. The self locking motor will also ensure that there are no break-ins while you are away as well.


Residential sliding doors are manufactured according to strict guidelines and are also tested and certified. This ensures the highest standards in quality and production.

Stay Dry

In rainy weather that is. How often have you been soaked to the skin to open the gate to your property and run back to the car? An automatic slide gate opener will open the gate for you and protect you from the elements at the same time.

Find a gate opener that is suited for your own needs from Gatemotors.

Electric Gate Openers

There is no doubting the security that electric gate openers provide. How convenient is it to make the front gate of your commercial or residential property slide or swing shut on its own when it is snowing out. In this way, you secure your property AND prevent your car seat from getting wet. Of course, not every type of gate opener might be suitable for your particular situation. So without further ado, let’s see the type of electric gate openers that you can use .

Types of Electric Gate Openers

Sliding Gate Openers

As the name implies these particular types of electric gate openers work by sliding open at the push of a button. The sliding variety also prevents the doors from banging against anything. This is also what makes them ideally suited for commercial use.

In-ground Electric Gate Opener

As the name implies, an in-ground gate opener is installed under a gate. It works by automatically moving the pivot point of each gate. Since the opener is installed out of sight it also offers a cosmetic convenience.

However an in-ground gate opener is mostly recommended for domestic or low abuse environments since it opens the door by manipulating the hinge.

A History

The very first commercial electric gate systems were hydraulic. Their basic design was to provide reliability and ease of use. This is also what makes the hydraulic variety ideal for commercial heavy duty gates. One of the reasons is that these gates produce a high amount if torque without using too much energy or stressing out the electric gate operator. And this is exactly what makes them more cost effective.

Hydraulic gates also come in the sliding variety. Take the Liftmaster HS670 as an example. The gate opener is designed to work for both sliding and swinging doors. In fact, its rugged design and strength can operate a gate that is 80 feet long and weighs 3000 pounds. Since the electric gate opener works through a hydraulic system it has fewer working parts, is durable, requires less maintenance and can last for longer as well.

The opener also comes with a hydraulic braking system, gate speeds of 18 inches per second, a pad mount and other notable features that make it a favorite for customers who want to use it to secure their commercial properties.  The fact that it also comes with a warranty is another reason why it is one our most prized product.
