GfA TS Control Panel Standard features

The Dock Technik Technical team often get asked questions about the function and features of each of the GfA TS Control Panels. IThe GfA Control Panels across the TS range have many features as standard:

  • Simple to set up – the simple plug connection between a GfA drive and a TS control panel means quick and efficient installations saving you downtime and money. The GfA control panels are plugged in via a pre-wired protected cable.

  • GfA TS Panel Control Limits are set from ground level for all digital limit motors – keeping your downtime to an absolute minimum, installers safe and saving time and money on access equipment.

  • Inbuilt maintenance counter allowing you to set up and optimize service schedule as required by the latest HSE and PUWR regulations.

  • GfA TS Control Panel - Simplified fault-finding with digital display – identifies faults effectivley ensuring you arrive on site prepared. Fault codes can be read without opening the panel.

  • Support digital and mechanical limits making the GfA TS range suitable for the refurbishment and new build markets.

  • Programme selectable output relay allows connection to and control of traffic lights, flashing warning beacon or air locking. The TS panels have 1 or 2 relays dependent on the selected model. Ask our experts for more information.

  • Self-hold run mode (available on the TS970, 971 and 981), when used alongside a suitable safety solution and Emergency stop switch provide additional flexibility.

  • Built to comply –all panels are fully compliant to BS En12453 and mounted in an IP65 enclosure (when the standard mains supply plug is used this reduces to IP54).
