Questions & Answers

Can I mount this on a steel bridge?

I have a steel bridge and I want use this to sense vehicles on the bridge (exiting) and then open my Mighty Mule 502 gate opener. Will the steel bridge mess up the magnetic field detection?
Asked by: Steve
I mounted my sensor on my steel bridge and have had no problem. Before I mounted it, I did some tests with a temporary mount to see if I had any false openings. Everything checked out ok. The only false opening was when my neighbor wiggled the temporary post which has the same effect as moving metal.

Can I have one on both sides of the gate. Thanks Dave

Asked by: Dave
it has a 12 foot sensor range so unless your driveway is more than 30 feet wide it is not necessary

How long do the gates stay open onced activated? Can the open gate time be adjusted? Why does this product have just as many bad reviews as good?
Asked by: Jamo
the open gate time can be adjusted, refer to the installation manual or download a new manual from the Mighty Mule website, mightymule.com cant answer the second part of the question, I have had these openers for the last 15 years and have only had to replace parts damaged by Hurricane Harvey, works well lasts a long time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gate opening sensor I'm using this for a gate clearance sensor. When the oil or UPS delivery trucks leave, their rear ends of the trucks gets into the way of gate closing. I don't want to use photo beams due to snow storm interference. The sensor is two feet past the gate toward the highway. Since the gate controller is very close, I bought a steel electrical pull box at Home Depot and coiled the extra wire in it. Since the sensor is a hysteresis (magnetic) sensitivity device, I didn't want to cut the wire and affect it magnetically. Also the steel pull box will prevent the coil of wire inside from being affected by the sensor. I grounded the box and the negative side of the battery where the shield braid in the sensor cable is connected. This allows any electrical or galvanic currents to leak away. It has been working reliability. The gate closing time is held up until the truck is past the gate area. The sensor's black and blue wires are connected to, COM and SAFETY terminals on the FM500 gate controller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working for No Reason It worked very well for the first two months or so. Then late on a Sunday afternoon it stopped working. I thought it was something with the batteries or power to the gate itself. Its not any of those things. Ran a continuity test on the line to the sensor as well. Nothing wrong with it, other than it stopped working. I am going to have to dig it out and return it. We get by with the remotes now, but its nice to get in your car and back out without fumbling for the remote . . . . . . If you check this page, you will see a similar situation from March of this year.
