Sectional-door-drive ELEKTROMATEN® SE 8.60 FI

This is the latest drive of the gate automation company GfA ELEKTROMATEN. Over 65 years of experience has enabled the first drive of the new revolutionary compact series. The integrated frequency inverter significantly increases the comfort of use of the door. The soft start and stop function as well as the possibility of rotational speed regulation make it an ideal drive for sectional doors both in collective garages and in industrial facilities.


SE 8.60 FU drive for sectional doors with mass compensation characterized by exceptional properties: 


Hand chain operator

In the standard version, the drive unit has an integrated hand chain operator with a chain  of 1 m in length. Extension sets with chain lengths from 2 m to 10 m are available. . A red rotary switch in hexagonal form (SW15) on the lower side of the housing  serves to activate the hand chain operator. A shifter cable easy to retrofit enables the activation of the hand chain operator even without a tool from operating height . The shifter cable is available in three different lengths.


Dimensions und mounting

The new design of the drive significantly reduced dimensions and weight. This affects the time and comfort of the installation.


Connection cables

The new one-plug connection system XES has been specially developed for the SG40 series and the first ELEKTROMATEN SE 8.60 FI equipped with this gearbox series. On the drive side, a single plug replaces the previously used separate plugs for limit switch and motor (⑰). The digital limit switch integrated in the drive unit allows the omission of an externally accessible connection space in favour of more compact housing dimensions. Plug-and-Play enables a time-saving electrical installation without any disassembly. The new XES connection cables are available as usual in various lengths .
