This type of automation is made up of a housing that contains a motor and in some cases a control panel. the housing will usually have an arm coming from the bottom of it and then is connected to a second arm through a link pin and then the second arm is connected to the gate.
When the motor is given a command it moves the jointed arm, pulling the gate open or pushing it closed.
Articulated gate arm kits contain a gate automation motor, control panel, remote controls, receiver, and safety photocells.
