200-actuatorRobust, easily installed and solar-ready, WT's low cost Medium-Lift Gate Actuators are the best solution for medium to large gates and valves at headgates, check structures, canals, laterals, pipeline control stations, water treatment, and industrial applications; SCADA-ready.

Unique design:Watch Technologies’ WT-200 Medium-Lift Gate Actuators provide a simple, easily serviceable, new or retro-fit gate control at an affordable cost. Unlike other companies’ actuators that are increasingly complicated, expensive, and hard to fix, WT invented sprocket and chain-driven actuators that are so simple by design that anyone can assemble, operate, and maintain them. WT Gate Actuators fit any rising or non-rising stem gate or valve. The WT-200 is well suited to applications at reservoirs, canals, water and wastewater facilities, pipelines, refineries, and landfills.

Robust, easily installed and solar-ready, WT's low cost WT-100 Light Lift Gate Actuators are the best solution for small to medium gates and valves for irrigation turnout automation, pump and pipeline control stations, and water treatment plant valve control; SCADA-ready.

Why solar?

WT Gate Actuators are the ONLY solar-ready actuators on the market available to retrofit existing gates and valves. Solar power eliminates the need for any AC power in remote environments; no additional cost for solar or AC actuator power applications

Easy automation: Easy to install, easy to hook up to SCADA, no calibration needed.

With or without a “brain:” With an embedded, programmable controller, WT Gate Actuators manage flow, levels, and scheduled operations either stand-alone, or connected to a larger SCADA system. WT Gate Actuators allow external sensor input and can run multiple gates.

Instant fit with all Watch Technologies’ integrated products: WT is the ONLY company that designs and manufactures innovative sluice gates of all sizes, actuators, and SCADA systems that all link together seamlessly and cost efficiently -- no system integration required.
