The G.A.L. Model MODL, Master Operator Door, consists of a 1/6 HP, D.C. motor with sprocket, chain, belt, and sheaves. It is capable of opening the car and hoistway doors simultaneously at a speed up to 1 1/2 feet per second. The power supply requirement is 230VDC, 500 VA, fused at 3 amps and it is also available for 120 VDC. Door speed is adjustable by means of resistor tubes located on the operator in a heavy-duty steel box, and on the elevator controller. The closing speed may be reduced to limit the stalled closing force and the closing kinetic energy to the values permitted by the ASME Code. The opening and closing limits of travel are cushioned by two steps of dynamic braking resistors.

The MODL operator is our most economical line. It is unique in that the base speed resistors and high speed resistors are located in the elevator machine room and are not included with the operator. It is available only with the 1/6 HP motor.
