Solar Panel Zone Map

The colors on this map designate solar zones during the periods of the year when the least amount of sun light is available. The recommended cycles do not factor the power draw of accessories. Cycles are considered one full opening and closing movement of a maximum size/weight gate for the corresponding opener. Cycles are also figured to be proportionally distributed over a 12 to 14 hour period; not consecutive.

The Apollo 7000UL Single Slide Opener is a practical system that allows for easy installation (professional installer recommended). 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 7000UL'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 battery (not included), providing enough energy for up to 300 cycles (1 foot per second), or approximately 30 days of use before the necessary recharge. It is also more durable, as it protects the unit from the elements.

In addition to the Apollo 7000UL's low voltage convenience and eco-friendly options, the unit is designed for convenience and versatility. Because it can be mounted on nearly any side of the gate, as well as operate on either pull or push to open functions, the unit can be installed to fit the design of the customer's property. The manufacturer also includes 25 feet of #40 roller chain, and the 800 series control board makes it easier to control the various functions of the gate. Furthermore, the 800 series control board contains 12 volt output terminals for various accessories that may require power.


The Apollo 7000UL Single Slide Opener is a practical system that is easy to install, especially with the DIYGateOpeners.com additions for a bolt on application to any size post. This is the agricultural version of the Apollo line.
