RSO5RE (500kg operator)

The CENTURION Industrial RSO range has been designed to safely automate extremely heavy roller-shutter doors such as entrances to factories and loading bays. Each model is equipped with a heavy-duty electric motor that, coupled with a powerful gearbox, delivers maximum lifting force. In addition, a convenient manual override facility comprising a five metre chain ensures that the door can be operated even in the event of a power failure. A three-button wall pendant allows the operator to not only open and close the door but also safely stop it should an emergency situation arise.

The RSO5RE industrial roller-shutter operator is an endurance model ideal for high-volume applications. The vastly improved duty cycle and high number of daily operations are made possible by a ventilated planetary gearbox.

Main features

  • Never. Say. Die.
    Take one part gargantuan lifting force and add a never-say-die attitude, mix in a sturdy cast-iron gearbox and what you’ve got is the recipe for the RSO Endurance model, the RSO5RE. With an impressive duty cycle and capable of performing in excess of 400 operations per day thanks to the remarkably durable double-layer planetary gear design, the RSO5RE is the solution for high-volume applications.
  • Robust construction
    Two words: Oblique gear. This proven transmission type, coupled with an AC motor that packs plenty of clout, makes for an industrial roller-shutter operator that makes quick work of even the heaviest of shutters.
  • Fail-safe manual operation
    What is strength without reliability? In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, the RSO is committed to keeping you in business, with not one but two modes of manual operation.
    All RSO models come standard with a five metre hand chain, ensuring that the shutter can be easily operated even from ground level, as well as a manual-release pin inside the gearbox that can override the mechanical brake.
  • Easy to commission
    The strength of a good industrial operator lies not in its complexity, but in its…well…strength. The RSO range of operators is exceptionally easy to set up, and commissioning can be done in mere minutes thanks to a user-friendly cam system.
  • Reliable position control
    Two mechanical limit switches are the heroes that tame the beast, making sure that the shutter stops in the open and closed positions, every time.
  • Rock-solid mounting system
    One can imagine that it takes quite a lot of muscle to keep such a colossus suspended several meters in the air – fortunately, CENTURION’s custom-made RSO mounting plates are more than up to the challenge, and includes vertical slots for easy adjustment of the operator.
