5700 Series Powermatic Low Energy Power Operator by Norton

Low energy door operators were once considered a necessity only for those with physical challenges. Today, due to the population's busy lifestyles, the convenience of "hands-free" door opening is more popular than ever. The 5700 patented design is based on ease and simplicity. This operator installs in minutes rather than hours and consists of three basic components: inverter, motor and Norton's 1601 closer body.

What separates the 5700 from other operators is its ability to function as a standard door closer. When the door is opened manually, there is little resistance and the drive train and motor are not engaged. The 1601 closer, not the motor, controls the closing cycle. Since the door closer does not back-drive the motor during the closing cycle, there is no loss of closer efficiency. In the event of a power outage, the door can be manually opened and will close via the door closer's spring force.

The 5700 is listed with UL and ANSI/BHMA A156.19 and meets the requirements of ADA and ANSI/BHMA A156.4. This operator can be activated via wall switch or radio frequency device and is ideal for doctor's offices, retirement facilities, schools or churches. Based on its dual functionality, ease of use and quiet operation, the 5700 offers the customer a unique choice.

Door Operator shall provide conventional door closer opening forces unless the power operator motor is activated. Door Operator shall provide conventional door closing forces at all times except in the event of power outage during powered door open cycle. Door Operator opening force and speed shall be adjustable by independent electronic adjustment to ensure adequate opening control per accessibility codes. Door Operator shall have an adjustable hydraulic backcheck value to cushion the door speed if door is opened violently. Door Operator shall have a manual adjustment to locate both full open and full closed door positions. Maximum door open shall be adjustable and capable to a maximum 180° conditions permitting. [(Door Operator shall be SELECTIVELY ACTIVATED by external initiating device, i.e., wall switch, etc.)] Door operator shall have adjustable hold open time capability in range from 5 to 30 seconds. Door operator shall have input line rating of 120VAC, .6A or 240VAC, .3A. Units shall have relay contact for interfacing products having a contact rating of 30VDC at 1A or 125VAC at .5A. Unit shall have an external On/Off Switch to defeat powered opening when desired. Unit shall have an internal circuit breaker switch to interrupt input power for servicing. Unit shall be U.L.

Additional Detailed Specifications

When activated, the unit shall, by means of an integral motor and chain drive, power open the door at both a speed and force that adjustable to meet accessibilitiy codes. The door shall be powered from a door closed position to a full door open position and remain in momentary hold open for _seconds (adjustable 0 to 30 seconds) [{Unit shall power open door to full open position up to 180° (5710); 170° (5730), conditions permitting.)(Unit shall be capable of allowing the door to be opened manually from 0 to 180°, conditions permitting.)] Once unit reaches full hold open position, if reinitiated, unit's momentary hold open time shall restart from the initially set hold open time. If unit is initiated during the closing cycle, unit shall revert to opening cycle beginning at that door position. Obstruction detection on open shall neutralize and reverse motor action reverting motor to closed position thus allowing door to close under closer spring force only. This obstruction detection feature shall be integral to unit. During closing cycle, the unit shall close door under spring power not to exceed a closing force of 15 lbf.
