GfA showcases four new products at R+T 2024

There was one clear winner at R+T Stuttgart this year, taking almost all of the limelight - the GfA TS 971+ IoT-enabled control panel. 

The TS 971+, with its Evodo gateway to the Internet, returns incredible levels of time-stamped data; including usage, fault finding, event logs, safety reports, parameter changes, and energy and heat loss reporting.

GfA showcased its latest products on a 350sqm stand, with the show welcoming more than 61,000 visitors through its doors.

ELEKTROMATEN® FX with separate Frequency Inverter
Frequency Inverter door drives have been a part of the GfA product offering for many years.

Enabling adjustable and fast opening/closing speeds with soft start and soft stop, this offers efficiency and is a great energy-saving solution.

Until now, the Frequency Inverter was mounted directly on the electric motor.

The FX, with a separate Frequency Inverter module, offers the flexibility to wall mount the inverter when space around the drive unit may be limited.

The FX will be offered in a wide selection of torques and speeds as per our current line of FI drives.

Control Panel & Wall-Mounted Charger for Electric Vehicles
This innovative solution significantly reduces the high installation costs often associated with vehicle chargers.

How? By supplying power to the wall-mounted charger via the TS 971 Control Panel without requiring a dedicated power supply for both the door and vehicle charger.

The integrated charging management ensures that the 11kW max. charging power is not exceeded – the customised Plug-and-Play wiring harness is provided and allows for simple installation without needing a qualified electrician.

This product is a winner of an R+T 2024 Innovation Award.

IoT Enabled TS 971+ Control Panel with Evodo Gateway       
GfA’s tried and tested TS 971 Control Panel will soon be available with internet capabilities!

The TS 971+ with Gateway enables convenient and automatic transmission of the door data directly to the cloud – negating the need for your engineer to visit the site.

This opens up the possibility for remote diagnostics with warning notifications, service planning, assisted repairs and remote viewing of your door data.

External Control Devices with two LED 7-Segment Display
When the TS Control Panel is mounted at a high level and the door is to be operated remotely by either a 3 Push Button Station or Keyswitch, the LED display is not accessible when operating the door.

Our solution is to add an integrated two-LED 7-Segment Display to the Push Button Station or Keyswitch, which allows messages showing the door status and fault codes to be clearly visible.

GfA continues to be the UK’s leading specialist in industrial door drives and associated control panels and has a proven track record of more than 70 years in manufacturing and product innovation in the door industry.
