Question: My Apollo 1500 will not auto open when we have a spell of really cold weather

Question: Jimmy has an interesting problem he needs help solving… I have an Apollo 1500 gate operator and my gate will not auto open when we have a spell of really cold weather. The sensor is buried and it will not work at any depth during cold weather… What can I do?

Answer: Hey Jimmy, per your recent email enquiry, it appears that what it giving you the problem is your exit probe, and unless the temperature has been dropping below -5 degrees Farenheit (which is the tolerance value of the EMX-202S probe) what you have is a defective exit probe. You do have other alternatives to the exit probe which are reliable, but non would be as simple to install.
