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. Inside Garage Optional wall mount position 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. Installing The Photo Eye Safety System 6” max. 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 (provided). 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 Photo Eye Safety System on page 16.) Door Track Inside Garage Door Track Fig. 1 (Wall Mount) Inside Garage Alignment Loosen 6” max. above floor #12 x 1” Lag Screw Alignment Alternative Floor-mounting Fig. 2 (Floor Mount) 1. Place the Photo Eyes facing each other on each side of the garage door, as shown in Fig.2. 2. If attaching to concrete, secure the photo eyes using concrete anchors and bolts (not provided). 3. Be sure brackets, when mounted, are NOT in contact with the door track. 4. If necessary, align the Photo Eyes by loosening the wing nut. (This step may be further required in Aligning the Photo Eye Safety System on page 16.) To Connect Photo Eye Safety System From one of the Photo Eye From the other one Fig. 3 1. Connect a pair of wires from either one of the Photo Eyes to a pair of “PHOTO EYE” terminals on the rear of the Opener as shown in Fig. 3. Refer to Wiring Instructions on page 13 for proper connections. 2. Repeat above step to connect the other Photo Eye. 3. Refer to Wiring Instructions on page 12 to ensure wires are connected properly. 13 Connecting Push Button !
