DO YOU WANT TO REPLACE YOUR NICE MOTOR MOBY?

The many versions of the operator MOBY

The MOBY is a NICE electromechanical swing gates operator no longer in production.

It’a widespread automatism, that has many versions:

How to replace the MOBY

MB4024 and MB5024

For the low tension MOBY 4024 and MB 5024, NICE respectively proposes the motors TOONA TO4024 and TO5024.

If your gate has two leaves, however, you could have a few difficulties. In fact, the control unit sets both limits switches and force automatically, based on the reading that comes from the motor encoder. For this reason, it needs to know exactly the model of the installed operators.

What does it mean, practically?

It means that the control unit won’t be able to handle an operator MOBY and a TOONA at the same time, but only two MOBY or two TOOONA. Therefore you’ll necessarily need to change both motors.

However, the MOBY and TOONA both have the same anchoring, therefore you’ll only have to change the connections and reprogram the control unit.

MB4005, MB4006 and MB4015

In this case, the control unit is able to support two different motors, therefore you can only replace one operator.

With what can you replace your old operators?

You can replace the MOBY 4005 with the TOONA 4005, the MOBY 4006 with the TOONA 4006 and the MOBY 4015 with the TOONA 4015.

In this case, you won’t have to change the brackets but only slightly adjust the programming because the two motors move with a different speed. However, consider that the two operators look very different.

 

MB5015 and MB5016

You can replace the MOBY 5015 with the TOONA 5015 and the MOBY 5016 with the TOONA 5016.

The control unit can handle two different motors, therefore you can change just one operator.

You don’t need to change the brackets, but you must necessarily change the connections and the times on the control unit to regulate the speed. Remember that the MOBY and TOONA look very different.

 

MB4605, MB4615 and MB5615

You can replace the MOBY 4605 and the MOBY 4615 with the TOONA 4605.

However, you need to pay particular attention in replacing the MOBY4615, because this operator is both reversible and slow and the same time; this means that it moves with a different speed compared to the TOONA. You can resolve this problem by programming well the control unit or switch the operators.

The MOBY 5615  is replaced with the TOONA 5605.  Even in this version the MOBY is slow, therefore you need to change the times on the control unit or switch the operator.

 

Is there a video tutorial on the compatibilities between MOBY and TOONA?

Yes, and you can find it here:
