GATE OPENER BRANDS
HydraLift, HySecurity’s industrial, hydraulic
vertical-lift gate operator, is often chosen for
multi-lane traffi c control applications because
it securely opens a wide area very quickly. The
HydraLift is also used where space constraints
restrict the use of slide or swing gates, on
applications requiring maximum security, or
when seeking a low maintenance option for an
overhead door system. HydraLift eliminates the
need for expensive cantilever gates.

Standard, AC HydraLift models
are rated continuous duty and cycles
gates eff ectively in the highest cycle
applications. It comes with a 200,000
cycle certifi cation. Often installed on
transit facilities, truck freight depots,
heavy equipment airport access sites,
and industrial, multi-lane freight
yards. HydraLift is also installed at the
entrances of high end apartment and
condominium complexes as well as
skyscraper parking garages because of
the signifi cantly reduced maintenance
and ongoing costs which are common
to traditional overhead door systems.
Industrial Grade Components
HydraLift is designed with industrial
grade components, insuring decades
of low maintenance, high reliability
Standard Confi guration
HydraLift comes with two hot
dipped galvanized vertical posts, each
containing a hydraulic motor that
turns a sprocket and chain, raising and
lowering a counterbalanced gate panel.
Each post is anchored to a welded
anchor bolt cage, which is mounted
underground and secured with a
concrete footing. The HydraSupply
consists of two hydraulic motors
connected in series to a hydraulic
pump and motor assembly that is
housed in a NEMA-1R enclosure (which
must be mounted within 75’ of posts).
Price includes 150 feet of hydraulic
hose, customer measured, and cut to
length by HySecurity for your specifi c
application. The motor is controlled
by HySecurity’s fl exible and powerful,
programmable Smart Touch Controller,
also located in the separate enclosure. HydraLift comes with two standard 24-foot posts,
creating an opening 16-feet tall when used with an
8-foot tall gate panel. The gate panel is not sold by
HySecurity, though many national and regional gate
manufacturers build gates to HydraLift specifi cations.
HydraLift posts can be ordered in custom heights to fi t
your traffi c lane, gate and clearance requirements.
HydraLift lifts gates weighing up to 2,000 lbs. (80
foot max. gate length) at 12 or 24 inches per second.
Hydraulics and Enclosure
HydraLift’s industrial-grade hydraulics allow for
severe cold and intense heat operation (from -40F to
167F; -40C to 75C). All moving parts are housed in its
vertical posts and NEMA-3R control enclosure. Hydraulic
hoses are normally installed in underground conduits.
Controls and Troubleshooting
HydraLift features the most advanced, fl exible
and robust controls in the industry. The Smart Touch
Controller often eliminates the high cost of add on,
programmable logic controllers (PLCs), providing onboard
integration for even the most cmoplex perimeter
security applications. Programmable options include vehicle
detector reverse or pause only, outside loitering alert,
synchronization with barrier arms or peripheral devices,
and timer-to-close. Three user relays off er 32 programmable
options, making it easy to connect HydraLift to any
external access control, obstruction protection, or security
device. It also makes it easy to create complex vehicle
entry validation, surveillance, and sequencing. Relays have
normally-open or normally-closed connections.
Smart Touch virtually eliminates arduous and
costly automated gate system troubleshooting. Other
gate operators require time consuming, step by step
access control, loop, gate edge, operator and photo eye
troubleshooting to diagnose gate “failure to operate”
conditions. Smart Touch off ers three exceedingly simple
and formidable troubleshooting tools: a real time or
downloadable fault, alert and error log that reports
tailgating, gate forced open, loop failure (with HY-5A vehicle
detectors), and many other gate operation abnormalities.
The Smart Touch LCD screen reports faults, alerts and errors,
and Smart Touch LEDs light up to show circuit status. Hours
of costly and complicated access control and gate system
troubleshooting are saved using HydraLift’s Smart Touch
HydraLift models run on most available
worldwide voltages. HydraLift is also available in
an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) DC model
which continues to operate for 150 cycles during
an AC power outage.
HydraLift’s gate is counterweighted for
easy manual operation. Simply pull and turn its
hydraulic bypass valve and push the gate up.

• Combination HydraLift, StrongArm,
SlideDriver or SwingRiser users benefit
from cross platform part and functional
components and software. This reduces
maintenance costs, avoids excessive
parts inventory and eliminates complex,
Facilities personnel need to know only
one simple operating system.
• HydraLift also off ers the benefi t of out-of-the-box security. It is locked by gravity
and hydraulics, without added costly,
complicated, and failure-prone external
locking mechanisms. Moving parts and
hydraulics are enclosed out of sight and
not subject to vandalism or destruction.
• Very low maintenance. HydraLift is
exceedingly easy to maintain and
