Automatic Gate Openers and Actuator ConfigurationElectrical Question:
I have an Elite Automatic Gate opener actuator, which is discontinued. The gate openers are opening in the opposite direction. The master is wired red to black, green to green, white to white. The slave is wired black to black, red to red, white to white, green to green. I’ve tried to wire the master the same as the slave-no power. I haven’t had this problem before when I have changed out the slave operator. I have never had to change the master until now and didn’t know it was wired differently. I also tried to replace the slave operator and still had the gates opening opposite. I bought extra operators before they discontinued the model. I also have an extra panel board.
This electrical question came from: Ellen, a Homeowner from Paicines, California.
Thanks for your electrical wiring question Ellen.

Automatic Gate Opener Configuration
- I have installed Automatic Gate Openers and with some you may be required to adjust a jumper on the main circuit board or the actuator circuit board to indicate the direction of travel.
- This should be fully explained in the installation manual.
Automatic Gate Systems should be installed and maintained by a licensed professional due to liability reasons.
