Genie has just introduced their new line of garage door openers this year starting with the IntelliG™ 1000. This garage door opener has a DC motor that is extremely quiet yet powerful, with an equivalent ¾ HP rated motor. That coupled with a belt drive channel rail makes the IntelliG™ 1000 one of the quietest garage door openers on the market.
The GenieSense™ Monitoring and Diagnostic Technology allows the proper power to be delivered at all points of door travel, continuously monitoring door pressure and stopping when significant changes occur, improving overall safety.
The new Intellicode® 2 Access Security System uses a superior encryption technology that prevents piracy of your remote signal. This system also uses an auto-seek dual frequency signal, sending both 390 and 315 frequencies. Your radio receiver will choose the strongest signal based on your environment. It also accepts Genie’s Intellicode® 1 Access Security Systems used from 1997 to present.
The instrument panel, used for programming the limits, force adjustments and remote tuning is conveniently located on the outside bottom of the motor case for easy access.
A DC motor is becoming the preferred motor for garage door openers. The beauty of a DC motor is its ability to adjust its pulling and closing force throughout the door cycle, especially important for allowing minimal force to be applied in the down direction throughout its cycle. This means if an object intersects the door at any point while closing, less resistance is needed to cause the door to reverse. Genie’s GenieSense™ monitors this force throughout the doors cycle and makes adjustments when needed.
In contrast, an AC motor uses the same force throughout its cycle. When adjusting for minimal force to fully close the door the highest force needed to push the door through the curved track is used throughout the doors closing cycle. The result is a greater force than required to reverse the door halfway through its close cycle.
