AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 Table Top models
The AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 requires a Pro Logic P-4 model. The AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x requires
a Pro Logic PS model or an Aqua Logic PS model operating with software revision
r2.00 or higher.
1.
Base Station required: Requires the use of an AQL2-BASE-RF base station.
2.
Select Location: Because both models are battery operated and designed to be
portable, there are no power supply or mounting concerns like the wall mount
units. The table top units are intended to be used in the normal living space, with
these considerations:
Protected from the weather: The wireless remote display/keypad should be
used indoors or in a weather protected area (rain should never hit the wireless remote display/keypad). Understand that areas that protect the unit
from rain, may still allow condensing humidity (dew, mist, fog, etc.) which
can damage the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 over time. Because
the unit is portable and may be used in different areas around the pool and
home, it's important to understand that it is NOT water resistant and can be
easily damaged if used in the wrong manner.
9
2
Within range of base station: The wireless remote display/keypad must be
used within 250 ft. (assuming the signal will have to travel through walls) or
500 ft. (line of sight) from the AQL2-BASE-RF Base Station which is typically
mounted on the Pro Logic/Aqua Logic main control unit at the pool equipment pad. The base station can also be mounted up to 500 ft. away from the
main control unit to shorten the distance between it and any wireless remote.
See the "Remote Mounting of the Base Station" section of the base station
manual for more details.
2.
Powering the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x/AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4: These models use a rechargeable built-in battery pack which will require an initial charge when you
first receive the unit. Charge the unit for at least 15 hours before attempting to
use it without the charger. Note that both units can be used normally while
connected to the charger.
Charging the battery:
Plug the included wall mount charger into a standard 120VAC wall outlet,
away from the pool area. It is not recommended that you use an extension
cord with this product. Plug the power connector into the rear of the AQL2Tx-RF-PS-x or AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 and charge for 15 hours. A fully charged
battery will provide over 400 one-minute uses under typical conditions.
About battery power:
When the charger is not plugged into the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x or AQL2-Tx-RFP-4, the unit uses battery power and will take steps to extend battery life.
After one minute of no button presses by the user, the unit will show a brief
display and will go into "sleep" mode (pg. 5). To wake it up, simply press
any button on the keypad. The button press will not perform any function
except waking the unit. Once awake, any subsequent button presses will
perform their normal functions.
10.
Teach Wireless Fail.
Please try again.
This is usually caused by a button being held down for more than 3 seconds,
falsely triggering the Teach Wireless mode. It can also be displayed if the Pro
Logic/Aqua Logic is not in the Teach Wireless mode. If the Pro Logic/Aqua
Logic is in Teach Wireless, then the radio signal may be too weak—try moving
closer to the Pro Logic/Aqua Logic main control unit base station.

An internal problem has occurred in the wireless remote display/keypad. Remove the display/keypad from the wall mount base (see diagram on page 2) and
write down the model number and serial number. Call the Hayward Tech support
department (Monday through Friday, from 8AM to 8PM eastern time) to find out
how to obtain a replacement wireless remote display/keypad.
When the charger is plugged in, the unit uses wall power while it also charges
the battery. It will always be "awake", as long as it's plugged into the
charger.
Note that the battery will slowly lose charge if the unit is not plugged into
the wall, even if it is not used. The battery will need to be charged every 1 2 months, depending on usage.
The AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 will display a series of information about its status and the status of the battery. Refer to the "Operation"

Press "<" or ">" (again, possibly multiple times)
until "Teach Wireless" is displayed.
c.
Press the "+" button to start the teaching process.
d.
Press and hold any button on the wireless remote display/keypad for 4 seconds. At this
point, the LCD on the wireless remote display/
keypad will indicate "Teach Wireless Successful" and the local display/keypad on the Pro
Logic/Aqua Logic control unit will also confirm "Teach Wireless Successful". If this process is not successful, then refer to the Troubleshooting section of this manual for additional
information.
2.
Apply labels: The Pro Logic and Aqua Logic series of controls allow each
output (e.g. AUX1) to be renamed to what is actually being controlled. The
wireless remote display/keypad comes with a sheet of name labels—simply peel
the appropriate label off the sheet and apply to the appropriate set of buttons on
the wireless remote display/keypad.
3.
Installation is complete: You can now use the wireless remote display/keypad.
If this is the first time you are using your remote, or if you have just installed a
new base station, run the "Teach Wireless" procedure from any other display/
keypad. Also, the radio signal may be too weak—try pointing the remote in the
direction of the pool equipment or try moving closer to the pool equipment. If
that doesn’t work, then there may be other equipment that is using the same
frequency. Go to the Settings Menu/Wireless Channel on any other display/
keypad and select another channel. Note that after you change the channel you
will have to "re-teach" every wireless remote device in the system.

Teach Wireless needs
to be run
This is caused by the remote not knowing the ID code of the base station. Run
the "Teach Wireless" procedure from any other direct wired display/keypad.

Within range of base station: The wireless remote display/keypad must be
used within 250 ft. (assuming the signal will have to travel through walls) or
500 ft. (line of sight) from the AQL2-BASE-RF Base Station which is typically
mounted on the Pro Logic/Aqua Logic main control unit at the pool equipment pad. The base station can also be mounted up to 500 ft. away from the
main control unit to shorten the distance between it and any wireless remote.
See the "Remote Mounting of the Base Station" section of the base station
manual for more details.
2.
Powering the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x/AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4: These models use a rechargeable built-in battery pack which will require an initial charge when you
first receive the unit. Charge the unit for at least 15 hours before attempting to
use it without the charger. Note that both units can be used normally while
connected to the charger.
Charging the battery:
Plug the included wall mount charger into a standard 120VAC wall outlet,
away from the pool area. It is not recommended that you use an extension
cord with this product. Plug the power connector into the rear of the AQL2Tx-RF-PS-x or AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 and charge for 15 hours. A fully charged
battery will provide over 400 one-minute uses under typical conditions.
About battery power:
When the charger is not plugged into the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x or AQL2-Tx-RFP-4, the unit uses battery power and will take steps to extend battery life.
After one minute of no button presses by the user, the unit will show a brief
display and will go into "sleep" mode (pg. 5). To wake it up, simply press
any button on the keypad. The button press will not perform any function
except waking the unit. Once awake, any subsequent button presses will
perform their normal functions.
10.
Teach Wireless Fail.
Please try again.
This is usually caused by a button being held down for more than 3 seconds,
falsely triggering the Teach Wireless mode. It can also be displayed if the Pro
Logic/Aqua Logic is not in the Teach Wireless mode. If the Pro Logic/Aqua
Logic is in Teach Wireless, then the radio signal may be too weak—try moving
closer to the Pro Logic/Aqua Logic main control unit base station.

An internal problem has occurred in the wireless remote display/keypad. Remove the display/keypad from the wall mount base (see diagram on page 2) and
write down the model number and serial number. Call the Hayward Tech support
department (Monday through Friday, from 8AM to 8PM eastern time) to find out
how to obtain a replacement wireless remote display/keypad.
When the charger is plugged in, the unit uses wall power while it also charges
the battery. It will always be "awake", as long as it's plugged into the
charger.
Note that the battery will slowly lose charge if the unit is not plugged into
the wall, even if it is not used. The battery will need to be charged every 1 2 months, depending on usage.
The AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 will display a series of information about its status and the status of the battery. Refer to the "Operation"
section of this manual for an explanation of each of these displays.

AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 Table Top models
The AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 requires a Pro Logic P-4 model. The AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x requires
a Pro Logic PS model or an Aqua Logic PS model operating with software revision
r2.00 or higher.
1.
Base Station required: Requires the use of an AQL2-BASE-RF base station.
2.
Select Location: Because both models are battery operated and designed to be
portable, there are no power supply or mounting concerns like the wall mount
units. The table top units are intended to be used in the normal living space, with
these considerations:
Protected from the weather: The wireless remote display/keypad should be
used indoors or in a weather protected area (rain should never hit the wireless remote display/keypad). Understand that areas that protect the unit
from rain, may still allow condensing humidity (dew, mist, fog, etc.) which
can damage the AQL2-Tx-RF-PS-x and AQL2-Tx-RF-P-4 over time. Because
the unit is portable and may be used in different areas around the pool and
home, it's important to understand that it is NOT water resistant and can be
easily damaged if used in the wrong manner.
