Sluice & Slide Gate Actuators: Solar or AC, Easy Install, Lowest Cost

Watch Technologies’ sluice gate actuators and slide gate actuators are simpler by design to use, install and maintain; solar-ready (dramatically lower-priced solar applications) and SCADA-ready; and shipped in 4 weeks or less. Sold as a stand-alone system or as a node on a network.


WT-200VC gate actuator: remote solar-powered, stand-alone application on 3 gates

Why Go Solar? 

Bringing electricity to a remote location is extraordinarily expensive. The USFS saved $185,000 by using WT’s solar-powered actuator instead of bringing out electricity to one site. WT’s sluice and slide gate actuators are the ONLY solar-ready gate actuators on the market that retrofit to an existing gate without any modifications. If you don’t automate, you can’t manage in real time, and you can’t save water!
