TROUBLESHOOTING NOTES
If you experience problems with the 831 Receiver, try some of
the suggestions listed below before calling the Factory
Technicians.
ONE RECEIVER WORKS BUT THE OTHER IS DEAD.
Relocate the antennas.
Receivers too close together (cross-talking); move to
different locations.
Check code switch settings.
RECEIVER APPEARS DEAD; THERE IS NO RESPONSE
WHEN TRANSMITTER BUTTONS ARE PUSHED.
Check the power connections to the receiver.
There must be at least 20 VAC at the receiver power
connections. (If a 24V system).
Review the code switch settings.
Any mismatch will prevent the receiver from working.
Try a different code switch setting.
Check the antenna installation.
Wait one minute for the receiver to “warm-up”.
Check battery in transmitter.
SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER:
RECEIVER “CLICKS” WHEN ANY TRANSMITTER
BUTTON IS PUSHED, BUT NOTHING ELSE HAPPENS.
Check the wire & connections in the STOP circuit. Refer
to Figure 3.
Check the OPEN & CLOSE connections.
The wire gage may be too small for the number of wall
stations used.
Check the power to the door operator.
Check the door operator’s control voltage.
Range is dependent on the installation, type of building,
type of door and the location of the transmitter. When
these conditions change so will the distance.
Any transmitter can interfere with operation. These
include cell phones, cordless phones, wireless systems and
CB and mobile transmitters. Other sources of interference
include computer equipment, industrial equipment,
electric motors, fluorescent lights, etc. The list is endless.
Do not lengthen or shorten the receiver antenna. It is set
to an optimal length based on the frequency of operation.
If the antenna is blocked or shielded (such as a car
traveling through a tunnel) the distance will decrease.
Always change the Factory set codes.
831 COMMERCIAL RECEIVER INSTRUCTIONS
MODELS:

• 831-J, 24 VAC & 115 VAC
READ THIS MANUAL CAREFULLY
BEFORE BEGINNING
PRODUCT FEATURES
831 Commercial Receivers are designed to work with most commercial door operators. The 831 is connected to the commercial
operator in the same manner as a 3-button station and provides open, close and stop functions via radio control. The receiver
may be powered from the operator’s 24 VAC transformer or from a 115 VAC circuit. There is ample room in the 831 control
box to make the proper connections. The antenna is removable and may be moved (using coaxial cable) to a new location for
better RF reception.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES
SHORT DISTANCE OR INTERMITTENT OPERATION.
Relocate the antenna with a coaxial cable.
Metal objects too close to receiver, move to a better
location.
External interference (such as radio towers).
Change to a different frequency.
Stuck transmitter in building.
Change code switches from factory settings.
Check battery in transmitter.

are available. Refer to Figure 1.
Typical 4-wire 3-button stations are wired as
shown in Figure 2. Number 18 gauge wire or
heavier must be used for wiring the control
stations and the 831 receiver to the door
operator. Smaller gauge wire may cause
operational problems, especially when
multiple 3-button stations are used. For
typical installations the 831 receiver is
mounted near the door operator, away from
any high voltage conduits or steel support beams.
For wiring, follow the steps below and refer to
Figure 3.

Start coding by exactly matching all 8 code switches in the transmitter and receiver. Next, in receiver A1, set code switch #6
to +, set code switch #7 to + and code switch #8 to +; In receiver A2, set code switch #6 to +, set code switch #7 to + and
code switch #8 to 0. Continue setting the codes in the 831 receivers, using both tables shown above.

• In the 831 receiver connect terminal #5 to the CLOSE pushbutton terminal in the door operator control panel.
• In the 831 receiver connect terminal #3 to the OPEN pushbutton terminal in the door operator control panel..
• Finish the wiring by connecting the 24 VAC to terminals #1 and #2 in the 831 receiver.
FOR 115 VAC UNIT ONLY: If the 831 receiver was ordered for 115 VAC operation it has a transformer mounted on the
circuit board. Connect 115 VAC to terminals #1 and #2. High voltage wires must be routed in a separate conduit from the
low voltage wires.
BEFORE APPLYING POWER, CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS AND INSTALL THE ANTENNA.
WARNING
DO NOT USE RADIO CONTROLS ON COMMERCIAL DOOR OPERATORS UNLESS
PROPER ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION DEVICES ARE INSTALLED. CONSULT THE
MANUFACTURER OF YOUR OPERATOR FOR MORE DETAILS.
