Representatives of Troy-Ontor, Integrity Electric and Valley Sales & Equipment joined the staff of Gedawin Novo Controls at Appleton, Ontario on August 17th, 2016. The purpose of the day was to conduct a dry test of the automated gate system. The system worked as planned and there were no issues! The Appleton Sluice Gate Retrofit project undertaken by Gedawin Novo Controls is nearly complete. The automation of the raising and lowering of the gate is only one aspect of this project. Gedawin is also adding heating to the inside of the gate to ensure no ice builds up on the face of the gate. This will allow the sluice gate to remain operational during the winter. Another feature being added as part of this project is to be able to control the gate remotely, either by the station computer or smartphone.
