Bft Automation Launch New Rigel 6 230V Control Panel

The 230V Rigel 5 Universal Control Panel has been favoured by powered gate installers for many years - however, the new and improved Rigel 6 will be launched on Monday.

The new panel, for use with single or twin electromechanical and hydraulic motors, supports a number of new features. These include: 8K2 on-board safety edge input; an integrated 24/7 time clock; better magnetic lock integration; separate open/close directional leading edge inputs and stop & reverse obstacle detection (on 230V electromechanical motors only).

Installers are able delete individual transmitters from the radio memory, which has been increased to a four channel radio, particularly useful in commercial and multi-property sites.

Danny Wall, owner of CD Wall who has trialled the Rigel commented:
“Whether I am doing a new install or upgrading an existing one, I will be choosing this panel due to the additional safety aspects it provides and the other great features it offers.
“Amperometric sensing on 230V setting of the Rigel 6 is brilliant (available on electromechanical only). I’ve tried it on both Bft rams and other brands and can confirm that it works well.
“The time clock facility is a fantastic idea; saving space in the control panel housing. Once you know how to change it, it is easy to adjust.
“Latching relays on the remote control means you can lock and hold open the gate from the remote. Rather than having an additional unit.
“Installing the Rigel 6 is very much like the Thalia P, which makes it easier and quicker to fit, thus reducing the overall installation time of the job.
“I am very impressed with the new panel. It’s obvious that Bft have listened to what we have been saying out in the field and are developing products based on that feedback.”
