GENERAL
Radio controlled material handling equipment operates in several directions. Cranes, hoists, lifting devices
and other material handling equipment can be large, and operate at high speeds. Quite frequently, the
equipment is operated in areas where people are working in close proximity to the material handling
equipment. The operator must exercise extreme caution at all times. Workers must constantly be alert
to avoid accidents. The following recommendations have been included to indicate how careful and
thoughtful actions may prevent injuries, damage to equipment, or even save a life.

SPECIFIC CONDITIONS OF SAFE USE
WARNING
POTENTIAL ELECTROSTATIC CHARGING HAZARD. SEE INSTRUCTIONS.
The XLTX has a maximum measured capacitance from housing and/or accessory to ground of 10pF. When
possible, care should be taken to reduce the potential for generation of static electricity, such as:
Controlling the work environment humidity level to minimize generation of static electricity
Protect the transmitter from direct airflow
Touch the transmitter with an insulating obect or glove whenever possible
Use in conjunction with gas detection monitoring
Do not use in an area that is known to be a static electricity hazard
Additional information on electrostatics can be found in EN TR50404 and IEC/TR60079-32. Joysticks
used in the transmitter may have >10% by mass of aluminum. The bulk of this material will be inside
the transmitter and not be accessible.

INSTALLING BATTERY PACK
Prior to utilizing the XLTX transmitter, battery packs must be installed.
3.1.1
Approved Batteries for Intrinsically Safe Operation
The XLTX transmitter has been tested and approved for intrinsically safe operation with the
following AA (LR6) size batteries:
Duracell
Duracell
Energizer
Panasonic
Rayovac
MN1500
PC1500
E91
LR6XWA
815
Use only the above battery manufacturers and part numbers as replacement batteries to maintain
intrinsically safe operation.
WARNING
ONLY OPERATE THE TRANSMITTER IN HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENTS WITH THE APPROVED
BATTERIES. FAILURE TO USE THE APPROVED BATTERIES COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY
OR DEATH AND DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT.
ONLY USE 4 BATTERIES OF THE SAME
MANUFACTURER AND MODEL NUMBER.
3.1.2
Intrinsically Safe Alkaline Battery Pack
The Intrinsically Safe XLTX comes standard with an intrinsically safe battery pack that holds four
disposable AA alkaline batteries.
Figure 2: Intrinsically Safe Battery Pack (Top and Bottom Views)
To change the alkaline batteries in the battery pack, loosen the T10 star bit screws completely
and remove the battery pack lid. Replace all the batteries with new ones.

Figure 3: Separated Alkaline Battery Pack
When reinserting the lid onto the outer housing, make sure that the lid aligns with the outer
housing and secure all four T10 star bit screws. When placing the battery pack into the XLTX
battery pocket, ensure that the pack is fully seated and that the thumb screw is tightened down to
hold the battery pack in place.
Figure 4: Installation of Battery Pack into XLTX transmitter
NOTE: The Intrinsically Safe battery pack must be secured in place with the thumb screw.
Failure to secure the thumb screw will not allow the battery pack to stay securely in place.

3.1.3
Spare Battery Storage Compartment
The XLTX transmitter features a spare battery compartment to store a second battery pack. The
second battery pack allows for quick replacement of the primary battery pack when the battery
level gets low.
The spare battery storage compartment is the battery compartment with IR cover inside the
battery compartment.
Compartment without IR
cover is the primary battery
compartment
IR Cover is located in spare
battery compartment
Figure 5: Spare Battery Compartment Location
NOTE: The spare battery compartment features battery spring contacts like the primary battery
compartment. These spring contacts in the spare battery compartment have no electrical
connection and are used to secure the spare battery pack inside the compartment to prevent
rattling.
3.2
TURNING THE TRANSMITTER ON AND OFF
The XLTX uses both a three position toggle switch labeled OFF-ON-START and a Machine Stop
switch to turn the transmitter on or off.
Figure 6: Machine Stop Switch and OFF-ON-START toggle
Enrange XLTX Intrinsically Safe
Transmitter Instruction Manual
April 2014
Page 14 of 24
3.2.1
Turning On the Transmitter
First, the Machine Stop switch must be in the raised position (pulled out). Next, push the OFFON-START toggle switch to the START position and release it once the Status LED lights up as a
solid green color. Following the Status LED turning on and illuminating green, the unit will
perform a routine initialization.
During initialization, the XLTX scans for any switches or motions that may be on during power up.
If any switches or motions are on, the failure will be displayed as a solid red Status LED, and then
the XLTX will power itself down.
After a successful initialization, the XLTX will enter normal operation mode and display the normal
operating status LED indications. See Section 3.5 for more information on the normal operation
mode with standard status LED.
3.2.2
Pulling In the Machine Stop Relay
Once the XLTX has been turned on (as described in Section 3.2.1) and in the Normal Operating
Mode, the Machine Stop relay in the receiver can be pulled in by pushing the OFF-ON-START
toggle switch to the START position and then releasing.
NOTE: You must release the OFF-ON-START switch to the ON position after the unit is powered
up, then push to the START position a second time to pull in the Machine Stop relay.
3.2.3
Turning Off the Transmitter
The transmitter can be turned off by pressing the OFF-ON-START toggle switch down to the OFF
position. Once turned off, the MLC relay in the receiver is immediately opened.
NOTE: Depressing the Machine Stop switch will also turn the transmitter off and open the
Machine Stop relay in the receiver. See Section 3.3 for more information on the Machine Stop
switch.
3.3
MACHINE STOP SWITCH (For Emergency Stopping Only)
When depressed, the Machine Stop relay in the receiver is immediately opened.
Under normal operating conditions, the Machine Stop switch must be in the raised position or the
transmitter and system will not operate.
NOTE: The Machine Stop Switch is to be used for emergency stopping only, not for normal
system shut down.
3.4
STATUS LED
The standard XLTX transmitter includes a status LED to let the operator know that the unit is
functioning and if the battery level is low.
3.5
NORMAL OPERATING MODE
In normal operating mode, the XLTX displays real time information relating to the operation of the
transmitter via LEDs.
3.5.1
Watch Dog Indicator (Steady Blinking Status LED)
The blinking LED represents the watch dog timer within the CPU of the unit.
Transmitter Instruction Manual
April 2014
Page 15 of 24
Enrange XLTX Intrinsically Safe
NOTE: The LED should be continuously blinking at all times. If the LED is not blinking the
transmitter will need to be rebooted to operate properly.
3.5.2
Switch Change Indicator (Rapidly Blinking Status LED)
When a switch is actuated or a switch status changes, the status LED will blink rapidly during the
change.
NOTE: If a joystick, rotary switch, or auxiliary switch is held in position or latched, the status LED
will return to the steady watch dog indicator blinking state.
3.5.3
Low Level Battery Indicator (Blinking Red Status LED)
The status LED will turn red when the battery level drops below 10%. The status LED will
continue blinking for the watch dog indicator and switch change indicator status.
3.6
JOYSTICKS AND PADDLES/LEVERS
To activate the desired motor functions, operate the Joystick or Paddle/Lever that corresponds to
the desired motion.
To activate higher speed functions for those transmitter models so equipped, operate the Joystick
or Paddle/Lever further to activate the desired speed.
3.7
ROTARY SELECTOR SWITCH
The rotary selector switch can be used to select various modes of operation.
A rotary switch can have 2 to 12 positions to select from.
3.8
AUXILIARY SWITCHES
These switches activate special function relays that control items such as grab attachments,
magnets, lights, and etc.
The auxiliary switches can be momentary or latched.
