This looks very similar to mine, the unit i used was out of a newer volvo wagon.
It seemed to me that the sensor was way to fast at opening the gate.
What I ended up doing was a cable to manually adjust the gate.
In hindsight I think maybe adding some mass to the sensor to slow down the opening might work better as what I really wanted was an automated system.
What did your unit come out of?
