How to Wire in the Vitector OPTOEYE Through-Beam Photo-Eye?

To wire in the Vitector OPTOEYE through-beam photo-eyes for your PULSE 500 Series door operator, you will need a 1k ohm resistor to power the photo-eyes. This resistor is shipped pre-wired between the R3 and +24 terminals.
Follow these steps to wire in the photo-eye:
  • Wire the solid black cables from the receiver and transmitter to the COM terminal on the control board;
  • Wire the dotted black and white cables from the receiver and transmitter to the R2 terminal on the control board;
  • Remove factory supplied resistor between R3 and +24, and wire that into R2 and +24;
  • Connect normal jumper cables between R1 and P+, and R3 and +24 to bypass those inputs;
  • Alternatively you can hook up a second photo-eye into R1, then a third photo-eye into R2 terminal.
