AXR-IRSM+ Swivel-MountRemote IR Receiver

Overview

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. TheAXR-IRSM+is in aswivel-mountenclosure for wall or ceiling installations. TheAXR-IRSM+(FG454-01)works with AMX 38 kHz or 455 kHz IR transmitters.

Note: TheAXD-IR+wallmount version is also available forUS-stylesingle-gangenclosure installations.

FIG. 3 Receive frequency jumper settings

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

1.Locate the 8-positionDevice DIP switch(FIG. 2).

2.Set the device address 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).

Sensor IR Validation Level

The IR validation level is set on the receiving device (such as an AXC-RCVI).

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 validation level.

1.Locate the IR Validation jumper pins (J1) (FIG. 5) on the circuit board(FIG. 2).

FIG. 5 IR validation jumper pin settings

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.

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 a4-pinAXlink connector for power and data. If the distance between the sensor and Central Controller exceeds power
