Linear's Most Powerful Operator Yet - New ¾ HP LCO75 Designed for Light-Duty Commercial and Residential Carriage House Applications

Many Doors - One Operator - LCO75 Gives Installers More Application Options with One Unit

CARLSBAD, Calif. (October 6, 2008) - Linear LLC, an innovator in the garage door and gate operator market, today announced the release of the LCO75 garage door operator for light-duty commercial and residential carriage house-style door applications. The LCO75 is easy to install, offering dealers and installers a range of superior options and flexibility. Rated at ¾ HP and loaded with a robust feature set, the LCO75 can operate with rails from 7- to 14-feet, making it a unique operator that opens many doors.

For the light-duty commercial market, the LCO75 is designed to work with 10-foot, 12-foot, and 14-foot high doors. The LCO75's key features include a solid-state control circuit for easy wiring, an instant-reversing high torque motor, thermal overload protection, a built-in obstruction sensor and a photo eye reversing system. Rated for a maximum duty cycle of 13 per hour, the LCO75 provides end-users with added operational convenience. The unit works with Linear's MegaCode radio receiver and includes easy diagnostic capabilities. All sensitivity, limit adjustments and transmitter settings are on the same side of the operator for programming convenience. The LCO75 is listed to UL 325 for the U.S. and Canada.

Linear also is introducing two heavy duty I-beam chain rails. The new HCI-12 is a pre-assembled and pre-tensioned I-beam rail designed for 12-foot doors. The new HCI+2 is a rail extension kit that works with HCI-12 for 14-foot door applications. Both rails are easy to install and quick to attach to the LCO75.

The LCO75 is Linear's most powerful operator yet for residential carriage house applications. With its ¾ HP rating, the LCO75 is capable of lifting heavier carriage house-style doors. Due to Linear's product ingenuity, standard 7-foot, 8-foot, and 10-foot T-rails can be easily converted to stronger I-beam rails using Linear's bolt-on carriage house rail conversion kit. Linear leads the industry by offering I-beam rail options for 7-foot, 8-foot, 10-foot, 12-foot, and 14-foot doors. Linear's belt- and chain-drive rails are pre-tensioned for faster and easier installations.

"We stand behind our commitment to our garage door operator installers and distributors to deliver ingenious products that offer simplicity, convenience and flexibility" said Larry Foisie, Vice President of Sales for Linear LLC. "The LCO75 is an excellent addition to our line of garage door operators, and we are excited to be able to serve both the light-duty commercial and residential carriage house market with a single unit that offers superior options and greater value to our installers and distributors. We are committed to helping them do more with less."

The LCO75 features dual 100-watt courtesy lights, deluxe wall station, and a three-channel MegaCode visor transmitter. The LCO75 also comes with a lifetime motor, a five-year mechanical and a one-year electrical warranty.

The LCO75 will ship early in November. For more information about Linear's complete line of access control products, visit the company online at
