Centurion-D5-Evo

D5 Evo and D5 Evo Low Voltage Sliding Gate Motor 

Domestic and Light-Industrial sliding Gate Motor.

The light-industrial D5-Evo sliding gate motor is an evolution of the tried and tested D5, 500kg operator for domestic and light-industrial applications.

Potent push force, along with intelligent speed control and smooth opening and closing, makes the D5-Evo sliding gate motor the automatic choice for large private residences and townhouse complexes requiring reliable, feature-rich gate automation.


The D5 Evo Low-voltage sliding gate motor variant enables you to enjoy all the amazing features and functionality of the flagship D5 Evo sliding gate motor, even if you don’t have mains power at the gate.

All that is needed to breathe life into the feature-rich LCD controller is a low-voltage input, easily obtainable via a step-down transformer, dramatically reducing installation costs.
