Replacing PTI Wireless Transmitters
When PTI ships out a system with wireless transmitters, they will all have been "pre-learned" into the wireless receiver and head end unit so that installation is quicker and easier.
Occasionally there will be a need to add a transmitter to the system in the field, either to replace an existing bad transmitter, or installing on to new units.
Each transmitter has a unique identification number which is programmed in to the transmitter. This ID number is assigned to a "ChannelIndividual input point on a multiplexer, Apex keypad, or XT that allows a door alarm sensor or contact to be connected to the system. One channel equals one door." in the wireless multiplexer, so that when its state changes, the multiplexer knows which channel changed. In the StorLogix software, the channel is assigned to a unit.
- Locate your Wireless MultiplexerDoor Alarm Multiplexers take multiple inputs from individual door contacts and convert them to a single output back to the controller. Camera Multiplexers are similar in that they take multiple inputs from different cameras and create a single output back to the recorder. and the TRL8080 unit. Open the case of the TRL8080 so that you can see the circuit boards.
- Repeatedly press the * key on the multiplexers keypad, until the "REGISTER A SINGLE DOOR TRANSMITTER" item is displayed, then press the # key.
- The multiplexer will ask for the channel number to register. If replacing a transmitter, use the existing channel that the unit is assigned to. If adding a transmitter, use the next available unused channel number. (Note that the current channel assignments can be viewed in the StorLogix setups.)
