The AXR-IRSM+ (FIG. 1) is a remote IR receiver for use with both AMX
Axcess/NetLinx Central Controllers and operates via the AXlink bus to
remotely control AXlink devices. The AXR-IRSM+ is in a swivel-mount
enclosure for wall or ceiling installations. The AXR-IRSM+ (FG454-01)
works with AMX 38 kHz or 455 kHz IR transmitters.
FIG. 3 Receive frequency jumper settings
Note: The AXD-IR+ wallmount version is also available for US-style
single-gang enclosure installations.
Note: The unit will not operate with one set of pins configured for
38 kHz and the other set of pins configured for 455 kHz.

•
To receive 455 kHz (default setting), position both jumpers on pins
1 and 2 (away from the edge of the circuit boards).
•
To receive 38 kHz, position both jumpers on pins 2 and 3 (near the
edge of the circuit boards).

The device number is set by the total value of DIP switch positions that
are ON (down). The Axcess software program in your system typically
uses device numbers 128 through 255 for the panels.

As an example, the DIP switch in FIG. 4 defines device number 129
(1+128=129).

Note: If you later change the device number, remove and reconnect
the AXlink connector to enter the new device number into memory.
Sensor IR Validation Level
The IR validation level is set on the receiving device (such as an
AXC-RCVI).
Wiring and Installation
Set the receive frequency, AXlink device number and IR validation level
before installing the AXR-IRSM+. To access the jumper pins or switches on
the circuit board assembly, separate the housing from the swivel base, as
shown in FIG. 1.
FIG. 2 illustrates the location of key components on the AXR-IRSM+ circuit
board.
IR Validation
Jumper Pins
An IR transmitter must send repetitions of data for the receiver to accept it
as valid data. In some installations, a light wall color or other physical
condition may interfere with the sensor's or receiver's ability to sense the
transmitted signal. The signal may reflect or bounce and become distorted.
The receivers can be set to use either two or three repetitions of sequential
signals to validate and accept the signal data.
Perform the following steps to set the receiver's IR validation level.

FIG. 2 Location of key components on the AXR-IRSM+ circuit board
Position the IR validation jumper (FIG. 5) to select the number of valid
IR data repetitions to be accepted:
•
Position the jumper at 2 to have the unit validate 2 sequential signals.
•
Position the jumper at 3 to have the unit validate 3 sequential signals.
Setting the Receive Frequency
Wiring the IR Sensors and Receivers
Use the set of jumper pins on the corner of the circuit board to set the
receive frequency. FIG. 3 illustrates the configuration of the jumpers.
The AXR-IRSM+ uses a 4-pin AXlink connector for power and data. If the
distance between the sensor and Central Controller exceeds power
consumption limits, you can connect a local 12 VDC power supply to the
AXlink connector.
Preparing Captive Wires
You will need a wire stripper and a flat-blade screwdriver to prepare the
captive wires:
1.
Strip 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) of wire insulation off all wires.
2.
Insert each wire into the appropriate opening on the connector
according to the wiring diagrams in this section.
3.
Turn the flat-head screws clockwise to secure the wire in the
connector.
Note: Do not over-torque the screw. Doing so can bend the seating
pin.
Wiring Guidelines
The AXR-IRSM+ requires 12 VDC power to operate properly. The power
is supplied by the AMX system's AXlink cable. The maximum wiring
distance between the Central Controller and the receiver is determined by
power consumption, supplied voltage, and the wire gauge used for the
cable. The following table lists wire sizes and the maximum lengths
allowable between the receiver and the Central Controller. The maximum
wiring lengths are based on a minimum of 13.5 volts available at the
Central Controller's power supply.
Wiring Specifications @ 35 mA
Locate the red IR Data LED on the front of the unit (FIG. 1). Point the
system's AMX transmitter towards the sensor and press a button. The IR
Data LED lights when the unit receives data.
If the IR Data LED does not light:
•
Verify that the transmit LED on the transmitter lights when you press
a button.
•
Check the wiring to the unit.
•
Verify that the transmitter frequency is properly configured.
Checking AXlink Status
The AXlink LED lights to indicate AXlink power/data status as follows:
• 1 blink per second
Indicates power is active and AXlink communication is working.
• 2 blinks per second
Indicates the devices specified in the Master program do not match the
devices found.
• 3 blinks per second
Indicates AXlink communication error.
• Full On
Indicates the following conditions:
• There is no AXlink control or activity, but power is On.
• The Axcess program is not loaded.
If the LED is On and not flashing, disconnect the AXlink connector and
recheck all AXlink connections. Then, reconnect the AXlink connector to
the panel and verify the LED is flashing once per second.
