The Apollo 3600ETL Dual Opener is a practical system that allows for easy installation. With the DIYGateOpeners.com additions, a 5' long, 4"x4" steel post with the mounting plate pre-mounted on top, the customer saves the time and money necessary in finding a welder for installation. Similarly, because this opener uses a low voltage charge, it is unnecessary to run 110AC to the gate. Also, the low voltage design allows the customer to use a household outlet within 1,000 ft. of the operator by running a 14-guage low voltage wire between the two. For customers who are eco-friendly, or who wish to save on electrical bills, it is also possible to use a solar panel to charge the battery with the same wire. The Apollo 3600ETL's large-sized NEMA 3R control box can hold a larger battery than many other units. This means the unit has the capacity for extra power storage with a deep cycle marine battery (not included), providing enough energy for up to 300 cycles (about 15 seconds in each direction), or approximately 30 days before the necessary recharge.

In addition to the Apollo 3600ETL's low voltage convenience and eco-friendly options, the unit is durable and well-designed. The opener uses the sophisticated 800 series control board, and has a new arm design that eliminates major pinch points. Also, since it is a compact unit, it has a low profile to provide for visual appeal and functionality. Finally, this system is ETL approved.
