WARNING
To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH from electrocution:
- Power MUST NOT be connected BEFORE Photo Eye Safety system is connected and aligned.
- The Opener will not operate until the Photo Eye Safety System is properly connected and aligned.
- Install the Photo Eyes NO higher than 6” (15cm) above the floor.
No part of garage door or other objects should obstruct the Photo Eye Safety System during door-closing.
NOTICE: The opener will not close until the photo eyes are installed. Photo eyes are required by
federal law to be installed on all openers. The opener will not work properly using photo
eyes from another brand of opener and may disable the safety system.
About the Photo Eye Safety System
The Photo Eye Safety System provides protection against
entrapment while the door is closing. When properly connected
and aligned, the Emitter Photo Eye emits an invisible infrared
light beam while the Sensor Photo Eye monitors that beam.

If the beam is obstructed during door-closing, the entrapment
protection will be triggered and the door will stop and reverse to
the open position. The courtesy light will flash for 30 seconds
indicating an obstruction.

Wall-mounting
1.
Place the Photo Eyes facing each other on each side of
the garage door. Position the sensors so they are no
higher than 6” (15cm) above the floor, as shown in Fig.1.
2.
Drill 3/16” holes using the mounting holes on the Bracket
as a template. Secure with #12 x 1” Lag Screws

3.
Be sure brackets, when mounted, are NOT in contact with
the door track.
4.
If necessary use the Optional Wall-mount Position (Fig.1)
to better fit your door-track and improve obstacle
avoidance. To adjust the position, loosen the wing nut,
disassemble the Bracket and move the Photo Eye to the
lower position on the holder.
5.
If necessary, align the Photo Eyes by loosening the wing
nut . (This step may be further required in Aligning the
