WARNING
DISCONNECT ALL POWER TO
GARAGE DOOR OPENER BEFORE SERVICING OR
INSTALLING ACCESSORIES OR PHOTOELECTRIC
SAFETY SENSORS. FOR ALL OPENERS, UNPLUG 120 V
AC POWER CORD FROM RECEPTACLE.
FOR
DOORMASTER, ALSO UNPLUG TELEPHONE CORD TYPE
COMMUNICATIONS CABLE.
Select a mounting position, no more than 5 inches above the
floor to center line of wall mounting bracket. The sending and
receiving units should be mounted inside the door opening to
minimize any interference by the sun. However, the sensors
should be mounted as close to the door track or inside edge of
the door as possible to offer maximum entrapment protection.
It is very important that both wall brackets be mounted at the
same height for proper alignment.

Using two 5/16 x 1-1/2” lag screws (provided), permanently
mount the wall mounting brackets to both door jambs. In some
installations it may be necessary to attach a wooden spacer to
(1)1/4-20 X 1/2”
the wall to achieve the required clearance.
CARRIAGE BOLT
Attach the “U” brackets to the wall brackets with a
1/4-20 carriage bolt, washer and nut (provided). Insert
the bolt from the inside of the “U” bracket and hand tighten only
at this time.

Identify which side of the garage door opening (if any) is “likely”
to be exposed to sunlight. Since sunlight may affect photoelectric
sensors, you should mount the sending unit (not the receiving
unit) on the side of the door opening exposed most to the sun.

Uncoil wires from the photoelectric sensors and route wires up the
garage walls and along ceiling towards the right side of the opener
(see Fig. 1). Route wires behind torque tube and tack wires in place
with insulated staples (not supplied).
Take care to run wires in a location where they will not interfere with
the operation of the door and do not staple through wire.
IMPORTANT! Keep sender/receiver wires away from moving
members.
Connect photoelectric sensors to opener per diagram (Fig. 1). Shorten
the wires as necessary and separate the wire ends. Strip about 1/2” of
insulation off each wire and attach the solid color wires to the COM
terminal and the wires with a black stripe to the OBS terminal. Tighten
terminal screws securely, using a small blade screw driver. Be sure
to observe polarity. Pull on external wires to test for secure connection.
Check that the wires are stapled in place and staples have not cut
wire insulation. Reconnect the power to the garage door opener.
Proceed to Step 3.

To locate the terminal block for the infrared sensor sender/receiver wires,
you must first move the right hand gear assembly. Loosen the set screw
and slide the gear assembly away from the opener. Uncoil wires from
photoelectric sensors and route wires up garage wall and along door header
towards the right side of the opener (see Fig. 4). Route wires behind
torque tube and tack wires in place with insulated staples (not supplied).
Connect photoelectric sensors to the opener terminal block on right side
of the opener. Separate wire ends and strip about 1/2” of insulation off
each of the wire ends. Insert a 3/32” (2.5mm) max. width flathead
screwdriver into the upper hole #1 of terminal block. Twist screwdriver
to open wire clamp in lower hole #1 of terminal block. Insert both sender
and receiver solid white wires into lower hole #1 until the wires bottom
out and then release screwdriver tension. Insert both sender and receiver
wires (white with black stripe) into lower hole #2 by the same process. Be
sure to observe polarity. Keep the sender and receiver wires straight and
organized by wrapping them around the backside of the opener and securing
them using the cord clip (adhesive backed) provided.(Insure the surface
the cord clip is attached to is clean and oil free.
IMPORTANT! Keep sender/receiver wires away from moving members.
Pull on external wires to test for secure connection. Check that the wires
are stapled in place and staples have not cut wire insulation. Reconnect
the power to the garage door opener. NOTE: Reinstall the right hand
gear assembly onto the drive gear. Ensure that the gear assembly is
installed correctly. Proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Photoelectric Safety Sensor Alignment
IMPORTANT! - This infrared safety sensor sends an invisible
beam of light from the sending unit to the receiving unit across
IN
the door opening. The door opener will not operate until the
safety sensor is connected to the power unit and properly
aligned. If the invisible beam of light is misaligned or obstructed,
an open door cannot be closed by the transmitter or a momentary
activation of the wall mounted push button. However, the door
OUT
may be closed by holding your finger on the wall push button
(constant pressure) until the door travels to a fully closed
position.

COULD RESULT IN SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.
At this point you will be able to activate the opener; it will open, but will not close the door unless the sensors are
aligned and unobstructed. The safety sensors can be aligned by moving the sending and receiving units in or out
(see Fig. 5) until the alignment light on the receiving unit comes on. The 1/4-20 carriage bolt can be loosened to
move the unit in or out, as required. If you have difficulty aligning beams, check that both brackets are mounted at
the same height and remount if necessary. Additional minor adjustments can be made by lightly bending the
mounting brackets (see Fig. 6).Once the alignment light comes on, tighten all bolts and mounting screws. Finish
securing all wiring. Make sure not to break or pierce any of the wires. Loop and secure any extra wire. Now, using
the wall station’s up/down button, activate the opener and check that it will operate through full open and close
cycles.
Step 4: Photoelectric Obstruction Sensing Test
Starting with the door in the fully open position,
place a 6” high object on the floor progressively
one foot from the left side of the door, center of
door and one foot from the right side of the door.
(Fig. 7) In each position, activation of the opener
with the wallstation up/down button should cause
the door to move no more than one foot, stop and
then reverse to fully open position. The same 6”
high object when placed on the floor, while door is
closing, should also cause the door to reverse.

WARNING
IF THE OPENER DOES NOT RESPOND PROPERLY, OR FAILS THESE TEST,
HAVE A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON MAKE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS/REPAIRS. FAILURE
TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS COULD RESULT IN SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.
