SwingRiser is a robust, ultra-reliable swing gate operator, opening high-design residential or secure industrial gates with an
elegant lift and swing movement. It offers the ultimate in elegance, utility, reliability, security, and low maintenance.
SwingRiser raises the gate panel a full 12 inches during its gate opening cycle. The lift and swing movement allows the gate to clear
obstacles such as snow, rocks, and curbs, while also solving the problem of road gradient diff erences.
At the end of its close cycle, the locking pin gently lowers into its ground or post mounted locking receptacle, securely locking the
gate. SwingRiser is as equally suited for a chain-link government agency gate, as for an impressive Estate gate,
where the gate is an elegant bronze, ornamental iron, or aluminum work of art.

DC Battery Backup
SwingSmart comes standard with two 8 Amp Hour batteries to provide approximately 300
cycles of backup operation after AC power loss (depending on gate weight, length, and
accessory power loads). Most other “battery
backup” gate operators, simply open or close the gate one last time and die. SwingSmart
DC is an uninterruptible power supply system, fully functional for hundreds of cycles after
Quick and Easy Installation
From the extra large conduit cutout to the chassis carrying handles for easy and accurate
placement onto a concrete pad, HySecurity engineers didn’t take any shortcuts when
designing SwingSmart. Installers save time with the
easy adjustment linkage arm, forgiving swivel connection between arm and gate bracket,
full 32 character LCD and tact buttons on Smart DC Controller for operator programming,
and self-synchronizing technology.
Synchronizing bi-parting gates is one of the most costly and time consuming installation
procedures. With other swing gate operators, uneven wear of motors and gate hardware
will de-synchronize the gates over time. SwingSmart’s self-synchronizing technology
automatically synchronizes bi-parting gates in the fi rst few cycles of operation. Best of
all, the gates continue to self-synchronize
throughout the operator life.
Vehicle Hit Protection
Gate hits from impatient drivers are unavoidable. SwingSmart minimizes expensive
repairs associated with gate hits by directing the damage to the least expensive operator
parts, SwingSmart’s unique manual override clamp (patent
pending). The result is that expensive components such as the gearbox and chassis are
far less likely to sustain gate hit damage.
Smart DC Controller
HySecurity’s newest controller board, Smart DC Controller, has all features of HySecurity’
s Smart Touch Controller with the addition of a 32 character LCD screen for easy
troubleshooting and programming. The intelligent Smart DC Controller off ers 2
programmable relays, RS232, RS485/USB connection, leaf delay, lightning strike and
power surge protection, and real time or backlog reporting of gate malfunction or security
Large, Heavy Gates
SwingSmart was specifi cally engineered to operate large, heavy ornamental or industrial
gates eff ortlessly. SwingSmart operates gates weighing up to 1,300 lbs. or gates up to 20
feet wide per leaf. Gate capacities:
1,300 lb (590 kg) for a 12 ft. (3.65 m) gate
800 lb (363 kg) for a 16 ft. (4.87 m) gate
600 lb (272 kg) for a 20 ft. (6.1 m) gate
Some gate installations have no access to power and other companies have green
initiatives mandating highly effi cient utility use. HySecurity supports these needs by off
ering the solar ready SwingSmart DCS 20. Simply incorporate the appropriately sized
solar panels for number of gate cycles per day, gate size/weight and sun availability, to
charge SwingSmart DCS’s two 50 Amp Hour batteries for continuous, solar powered,
SwingSmart DC power voltage is fi eld selectable. A voltage selector switch on the board
easily converts operator from 115 volt to 230 volt power.
All SwingSmart DC operators are backed by a 5-year or 500,000 cycle manufacturer’s
warranty. For single-family residential installations, the warranty is extended to a 7-year

There’s a SwingRiser model for nearly every site and type of gate. Gates open
at speeds from 14 seconds to 30 seconds. SwingRiser lifts and swings gates panels up to
3,000 lbs. and up to 16 feet wide. They move bi-parting gates together, or can be ordered as
two single leaf operators for leaf-delay. As with most HySecurity operators, SwingRiser can be
ordered in a DC, uninterruptible power supply back-up confi guration.
Hydraulics, Temperature Range and Chassis
The fully enclosed electric motor and hydraulic pump drive a post-enclosed
hydraulic cylinder, making this operator almost vandal proof. Hydraulic hoses are normally run
in underground conduits. Industrial-grade hydraulics allow for severe cold and intense heat
operation (from -40F to 167F; -40C to 75C). SwingRiser posts and index arm are zinc fl ame
sprayed for maximum rust and
corrosion resistance. If a specifi c post color is required, outer posts are ready for fi eld
Controls and Troubleshooting
SwingRiser features the most advanced, fl exible and robust controls in the industry. The
Smart Touch Controller often eliminates the high cost of add on, programmable PLCs,
providing on-board integration well beyond the needs of most perimeter security applications.
Programmable options include vehicle detector reverse or pause only, leaf delay, master/slave,
outside loitering alert, and timer-to-close. Three user relays off er 32 programmable options,
making it easy to connect SwingRiser to any external access control, obstruction protection,
or security device and create complex vehicle entry validation, surveillance, and sequencing.
Relays have normally-open or normally-closed
Smart Touch makes arduous and costly automated gate system troubleshooting a breeze.
Other gate operators require time consuming, step by step access control, loop, gate edge,
operator and photo eye troubleshooting to diagnose gate “failure to operate” conditions. Smart
Touch off ers three exceedingly simple and formidable troubleshooting tools: a real time or
downloadable fault, alert and error log that reports tailgating, gate forced open, loop failure
(with HY-5A vehicle detectors) and many other gate operation abnormalities. The Smart Touch
LCD screen reports faults, alerts and errors, and Smart Touch LEDs light up to show circuit
status. Hours of costly and complicated access control and gate system troubleshooting are
saved using HySecurity’s Smart Touch troubleshooting tools.
Ordering two “Single Leaf” vs. one “Twin” Unit
Two SwingRisers on the same entrance or exit can be ordered and installed as single leaf or
Twin units. When users order SwingRiser in its Twin confi guration, the SwingRisers operate
as one with each gate leaf moving in unison, powered by one controller, motor, and hydraulic
system, effi ciently dividing the hydraulic fl uid to each post. Two single-leaf operators are
required when a site requires that the gate panels operate independently of each other. Each
leaf requires separate power and hydraulic controls and can be programmed to
operate with leaf delay. One SwingRiser post is programmed to move before or after the other.
The leaf delay confi guration is necessary when one gate leaf will close in an overlapping
position to the fi rst closed leaf. This may also be necessary for specifi c add-on locking
devices (although SwingRiser comes standard with its own gate locking pin and receptacle).
Standard Confi guration
Standard SwingRiser posts are available in 90 degree or 100 degree swing, are 81” tall (6.75
feet) with internal hydraulic cylinder and limit switches. Price also includes up to 50’ of custom
cut hydraulic hose (fi eld measured by customer), index arm, and a NEMA 1R enclosure with
electronic controls, electric motor, and hydraulic pump. Each outer post is zinc fl ame sprayed
for ultimate rust and
corrosion resistance. All hydraulics and controls are securely enclosed within the post or
separate HydraSupply enclosure. Hydraulic hoses are normally enclosed in underground
Custom SwingRiser post(s) can be ordered to fi t your gate size. SwingRiser posts must be
mounted to a structural column or wall that will support the entire weight of the swing gate
panel throughout its arc. Excessive speed, insuffi cient column support, or insuffi cient footing
may cause premature post wear or other operator malfunction.
HySecurity provides a SwingRiser and SwingRiser Twin Order
Form that must accompnay every SwingRiser order. These order forms guide customers step
by step through the critical details of the ordering process.
Note: Most SwingRisers are ordered to swing in the direction of vehicular traffi c fl ow. A two
leaf entrance/exit SwingRiser confi guration usually swings in on the entrance gate and swings
out on the exit gate. All SwingRiser orders require a signed order form that is submitted to the
factory prior to production commencement.
SwingRiser can be manually operated by disengaging its index arm or using the hand pump
included in the motor and controls NEMA-3R enclosure.
SwingRiser models run on nearly any available worldwide voltage. Available in DC models
