Guardian Keypad Wire Pulls

Installation tip!

It is always a good idea to label your wires with a Sharpie™ or wire markers! This will assist you during the installation and helps you or others later during service.

Wire Pulls

Pull the main wire run leaving enough slack to splice wires properly. The main run usually consists of the following wire:

Typical two keypad system with intercoms:

  • One 18/2 OAS Shielded for data communications
  • One 18/2 for 12 VDC for each keypad (this is if you have not chosen to power keypads locally from the gate motor)
  • One 18/2 OAS Shielded for intercoms to each keypad (Must be home run back to the office base station!)
  • One 18/2 for bypass or gate over ride directly to gate motor terminals
  • One or two spare 18/2 OAS Shielded for future use

An additional 18/2 for power and RG-59/RG-6 for video data will be needed for keypads with cameras

The keypad will need the following wire pulled to it from the common junction box or gate motor.

  • One 18/2 OAS Shielded for data
  • One 18/2 for 12 VDC
  • One 18/2 for relay
  • One 18/2 OAS Shielded for Intercom
  • Optional one for spare or required KNOX key switch (If you are required to install a KNOX key switch QuikStor advises that it is best to run a separate wire directly to the gate operator keeping the QuikStor system independent of the KNOX switch)

An additional 18/2 for power and RG-59/RG-6 for video data will be needed for keypads with cameras

 Pull keypad runs leaving at least 5’ of extra wire from the finished grade to thread through the gooseneck.
