Wiring and Installation
Set the receive frequency, AXlink device number and IR validation level before installing the

Setting the Receive Frequency
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..
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).
Setting the AXlink Device Number
2.Set the DIP switch according to the DIP switch values shown below.
Value 1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128
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).
FIG. 4 Example Device DIP Switch set to 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
Setting the IR Validation Level
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 level.
1.Locate the IR jumper pins (J1) (FIG. 5) on the circuit board(FIG. 2).
Setting for 2 validations
Setting for 3 validations

2.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.
