95: ELECTRICAL DOORS

1

I have a 42 ft Schweiss bifold door that was installed Nov. 2014 in MS. It has a 2HP motor. Could you send me a schematic of the relay circuits and the other electrical controls? Door works great, just want a copy of schematics on hand.

2

I'm providing electrical design for new bifold liftstrap doors at an airport hangar. I'd like to know if there is any additional power connection requirement for the remote door opener system on a strap bi-fold hangar door, or if it can tie into the power motor unit on the door for any necessary power requirement. From the electrical door schematic, it appears that it connects to the power unit, but I'd like to confirm that there is no additional external power source required to the hangar door remote control unit.

The new home owners have contacted me and told me they want to go ahead with installing two 20x9 ft. remote controlled low voltage doors on their garage. 

4

Can you email a copy of the Schweiss installation door manual? The one sent with the door got ruined. We are only looking for the electrical bifold door requirements.

5

 I want to know if the 208 volt single phase 2 hp motor, fla=9.8 amps, 1.0 sf, has overload thermal protection built in to the door motor. This is for a Schweiss type bifold liftstrap door 38 ft. 11 in wide, 13 ft. 3 in high, wedge 24 inches. Canadian electric code requires thermal overload door protection. Please state if the motor has built-in self resetting overload protection.

I just bought a used Schweiss bi-fold door from an auction and don't have the wiring schematic for it. Can you email me one. Door was made on 06/30/99. Serial number is 100 367 185. The motor is 220v and its a 24 volt system. I also need a door up down stop switch. This is a cable lift door. 

7

I have a cloth-covered quonset hangar that needs a Schweiss bi-fold strap door or one piece hydraulic door. Hangar has arch-design that is 38' wide and 17' high at peak. A bi-fold hangar door might be best, but I am curious what a hydraulic door might cost and is this door easier to install. Door   electricity is limited so would like an estimate on a backup door generator or solar door set-up.

I need a maintenance manual and electrical diagram for my bottom drive Schweiss bifold door on my hangar. Bought it from someone else who can't find it. No hurry, no problems.

WE HAVE TWO OLDER (20 YRS /-) BIFOLD STRAPLIFT SCHWEISS DOORS. WE NEED TO KNOW THE RECOMMENDED FUSE TYPE AND AMPS TO PROVIDE OVERLOAD AND AVOID DAMAGE TO THE SYSTEM IN SITUATIONS WHERE LOCKING MECHANISM IS NOT RELEASE PRIOR TO START OPEN. WE RECALL THAT THE DOORS CAME WITH QUICK BLOW FUSES BUT DO NOT KNOW THE AMPS. ALSO, WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE QUICK BLOW SO PERHAPS YOU CAN ADVISE US ON THAT SOURCE AS WELL. THANK YOU.

12

We have bought a few of your lift strap systems. (That's the only way to go) I am putting a saftey switch on the door latch. The manual I had here has seemed to of grown feet. I need a wiring diagram that showes the door latch safety switch on a 220 single phase system W/ 2 motors and one control. If you could Email that to me it would be greatly appreciated Thanks, ERA aviation facilities

Can you provide me with schematic or wiring diagram for the Schweiss SCH 4 door controller. Serial number of the unit is 156861-34 Thank you Bob 

14

Hi i just aquired a 36' wide by 18" tall bi fold door. Its 240v single phase. Not sure on the motor hp. I was wondering if you could tell me what amp circuit I should put it on. Thanks Stuart

15

I'm looking at one piece hydraulic doors for 2 auto repair bays 12'x 12' in a concrete building. Can we use one power source for both?

16

I am thinking of putting two of your bifold or hydraulic doors on the end of my warehouse. What does a 16x30 door cost and what does the power unit cost? I would like some more detailed literature/pictures of how these doors work. Please include costs. One power unit could run two doors correct? I am assuming a valve could be flipped to power one and then the other/ thanks Jason

I am working towards finishing the interior of my hangar. Although I am not going to install a new Schweiss door now, I want to plan for the inevitability by putting electrical power in place. Can you tell me what kind of 220 volt, single phase circuit to plan for if using a hydraulic door? I would likely finish it with matching wood and insulate. I don't need a quote right now, but am curious about the rough price range. Thanks.

I need the spec sheet for sizing a generator to the door motors. I seem to have miss placed the one I recieved can you send me one via email thanks 

19

You installed a bi-fold door on my shed many years ago. If power to the shed were interrupted, what would it take for a generator to open the door? I have two 2000 watt Honda generators and I'm wondering if they are connected in parallel, if that would be enough to open the door. I'm not sure if there would be a surge of electricity initially that would be greater that 4000 watts. 

20

Is it possible to get more information about how the electrical wiring is routed on the door frame? How is the excess wire needed for the bifold door to open protected from twisting or getting pinched when the door opens/closes? Is there any specialized equipment to wind or spool the excess wire? Do you have recommendations on how to run the wire in conduit?

21

Need wiring diagrams for the bifold doors that we had installed here in Orlando. Everything is operating properly, It just our policy to have these diagrams on hand. Overhead door sold these to us and Florida Door installed them. Niether one of them has been able to produce the wiring diagram. It is not in the O&M manual furnished for the job. Please email this to me. Thanks

22

I'm working as a consultant for a small local airport that has just changed owners. The new owner is completely rebuilding the airport to be sustainable. I am trying to calculate the power needs for the airport and since we always recommend your doors for the hangars we sell here, I was wondering if you could give me an average kw usage for opening and shutting one of your average sized hangar doors. One cycle is fine or kwh a year is fine. Like I said this is a small airport and will probably not have anything with more than a 35ft wingspan if that helps with your calculations. Thank you

23

I purchased a bi-fold from you last July. It is a 50wx12h door and i ordered it 120 volts due to my power available. I am on a generator. I have upgraded my power system and would like to convert to 220-240 volt system. What do i need to do?

24

Our company is bidding this project next Tuesday, and your hydraulic doors are listed as one of the types that maybe used for the project. As a electrical contractor I was in question of what your door power connection and control connection requirements would be for this project. I would appreciate any information sent back to me if possible.Thank you and have a great day.

We have a bi-fold door on our hanger. We desire the door to fully open and close by momentarily pressing the open or close button. Right now we have to hold the button in while the door opens or closes. Can we upgrade or relocate wires on the terminal strip to achieve this? Could you please give us some direction? Thank you, Ms. Jill K.

Good morning. I am an electrical engineer working on a project that will be using one of your Bi-Fold doors for an office service counter. Could you please forward me the Electrical Diagrams and Electrical Schematics for this system? Thank you.
