Wiring in Power Lines
 120VAC systems: 120VAC systems are prewired using a standard 110V plug with supplied
+12VDC adapter.
 +12VDC Systems: The +12V adapter cord can be used for +12V systems by simply cutting the cord to length and wiring the lead with the
white stripe to +12V and the black only lead to Ground.
 24VAC Systems: Use special connectors; contact us at (724) 610-5256
or email us at remotes@rfhero.com for more information.

Each line is fused inside the control box; if no controls seem to work check that the fuses are installed
and are working. A fuse tester is provided in each system with a spare fuse.
Maintenance Notes
 The receiver box should be kept dry and should be periodically dusted off.


Check the transmitter’s batteries weekly. Only use two (2) AA alkaline or equivalent rechargeable
batteries. When the batteries are weak the Transmitter’s LED will light on and off slowly and you
may notice some reduced operating range.
Clean the antenna periodically with mild soap and water; do not immerse in water. Allow to dry
completely before use.
If unit is to be returned for service, please clean the transmitter and the receiver before sending it
back.

Operating Instructions
1. Place two (2) AA batteries in the transmitter. The LED on top will flash red a few times. Once this
stops, pressing any button on the transmitter will cause the LED on top to rapidly flash green.
2. Plug the YellowJacket Pro receiver power cord into a powered outlet, then into the Yellow Jacket
Pro receiver. The Power LED (red) should now be lit.
3. After a few seconds the Communications LED should flash green three (3) times for a 3 button
insulation machine. If it flashes any other number of times, then the mode is wrong. Please follow
the directions on the next page titled, “Setting the YellowJacket Pro Receiver’s Mode”.
4. Pressing a button on the transmitter will cause the LED on the top of the transmitter to flash green
to indicate that the signal has been sent.
5. The Communications LED on the receiver will flash green/red (may appear orange) to indicate that
a valid message has been received from the transmitter. You may also be able to hear the relay
click inside the receiver. If the lid is removed from the receiver, you will also see the relay’s LED
turn on and off as the transmitter’s buttons are pressed.
6. If the Communications LED flashes red only, the transmitter is not paired with this receiver.
Please follow the directions on the next page titled, “Pairing the YellowJacket Pro Receiver and
Transmitter”.
7. Your system is now operational and ready for use!

ATTENTION!
This section contains the instructions for changing the mode on a YellowJacket Pro receiver.
These steps should only be followed when the receiver is not set to the proper mode (see Step 3
in the “Operating Instructions” section found on the previous page). Your new receiver should
already have the proper mode programmed into it from the factory.
