Door control units from GfA Elektromaten - comparison and overview 

The door control units from GfA Elektromaten in Düsseldorf are among the most frequently installed door control units in Germany. There are good reasons for this - pre-assembled connection cables to the Elektromaten drive and a comprehensible and simple program guide ensure easy installation and commissioning. The door control units from GfA Elektromaten are available in different versions, with correspondingly different equipment features.

Controls for Constant-Pressure-to-Close Operation

GfA Elektromaten Torsteuerung WS900

The GfA Elektromaten door control unit WS900 is specially designed for use on industrial doors. It is mounted directly on the Elektromaten drive and enables pure hold-to-run / constant-pressure-to-close / Deadman operation. This means that the door is only moved as long as the operator keeps the control button active. A special feature of this control is its compatibility with mechanical limit switches only. Pre-assembled connection cables to the Elektromat drive ensure quick and easy installation and commissioning. Internally, the control operates with a control voltage of 24V and is available as a version with two or three contactors.

The TS 959 from GfA Elektromaten is an advanced deadman control compatible with both mechanical and digital limit switches. Compared to the WS900, it offers some extended functions and has additional connection options. In addition, the TS959 is not installed directly on the drive, but on the wall next to the gate. The connection to the Elektromaten drive is made via optionally available plug-in connection cables. This greatly simplifies installation and commissioning and minimises sources of error during installation. It can operate with both the digital limit switch DES and the mechanical limit switch NES. Although designed for hold-to-run / constant-pressure-to-close / Deadman operation, its compatibility with different limit switches offers greater flexibility and adaptability to different gate applications.

The Standard: Automatic Controls

Door control units TS970 and TS971

GfA Elektromaten's TS 970 is an advanced door control unit designed specifically for automatic door operation. Its compatibility with both mechanical and digital limit switches makes it a versatile choice for a wide range of gate applications. Thanks to its wide range of functions, the TS 970 adapts seamlessly to the most diverse installation projects, always promising reliability and strong performance. 
In contrast, the TS 971 stands out with some additional features. While it is also designed for automatic operation of gates and is compatible with both types of limit switches, it has an integrated 434 MHz radio receiver. This allows for easy and convenient control of the gate via optional remote control. Another outstanding feature of the TS 971 is its standard receiver for GfA's innovative WSD system. This system enables wireless transmission of the safety device from the door leaf, eliminating the need for the traditionally used Coil Cord spiral cable. This not only offers a cleaner installation, but also increased safety and efficiency.

Special Solutions for complex Applications

GfA Elektromaten TS981
The TS 981 from GfA Elektromaten is a state-of-the-art comfort-automatic control, especially developed for GfA door operators with the digital limit switch DES. It is distinguished by its versatility in that it can be used in both automatic and dead-man operation. A special safety feature is the integrated RWA control (smoke and heat extraction), which enables direct connection to fire alarm systems and ensures forced opening of the door system in an emergency. For special applications, for example in underground garages, the TS 981 offers both one-way and two-way traffic control. Operation and adjustment of the control is simplified by the integrated triple pushbutton and a Rotary selector with digital display. In addition, the functionality of the TS 981 can be extended by various Add-on modules, making it a flexible solution for a wide range of door applications.
GfA Elektromaten, known for its high-quality door control units, now presents the models TS 970, TS971 and TS 981 in a particularly robust XL plastic housing. This special housing variant was developed to meet the requirements of installations in which additional devices with top-hat rail mounting are used. In addition, the XL plastic enclosure offers optimum protection in environments where there is increased moisture, thus ensuring a longer service life for the control. For industries where special hygiene standards apply, such as the food industry, these models are additionally available in a corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing that ensures both robustness and cleanliness.
