Operator – in the automatic door system is a one of the most important component. It has all of the “guts & brains” for opening and closing the swing door (yes, lets just focus on a swing application for now), both by using an electricity and spring resistance (closing). It contains the motor (low or high voltage), a programmable board to control the operations and sub-components: (depending on application) receiver, relay, security components, etc. The motor also comes with the arm that can be adjusted to the specific door and application. Other components needed for the operator to work are push buttons, movement sensors or any other parts to send a signal to the board.
There are different companies… TBC
