Features

•  Capable of operating 3 garage door openers and 

  3 door opener work lights.
•  Time & Date are continuously displayed on the 

  LCD screen. Time can be  displayed in 12 or 24 hour s.

  Date can be displayed with DD/MM/YYYY  

  or MM/DD/YYYY. 
•  Status messages are stored in a “histor e” that 

  maintains the 10 most recent operations of the opener. 
•  Safe-T-Beam® system is continuously monitored—

  if their beam is obstructed, the Intelligent Wall Console 

  (IWC) will display the message—“CHECK BEAMS.”
•  Includes the SureLock™ security control— 

  When activated, this prevents any remote or keypad 

  operation of the opener. A great safety feature to have

for peace of mind at night or while on vacation.

•  Can be used to enable or disable the motion sensor on 

  the opener’s powerhead (if so equipped). The motion 

  sensor will detect movement inside the garage and 

  turn on the opener’s work light.
•  The name & phone number of your installer or local 

  service company can be entered into the IWC. If a 

  critical fault occurs during operation—a “call service” 

  message will appear along with the name & number 

  you have entered.
•  Text can be displayed in English, Spanish or French.
•  LCD display back light “ON” time can be  set to 

 

 

come on for a sp

period 

  during use.
•  The opener’s work light “ON” time can be set to stay  

  on for a sp

period of time following the use

 

  of the work light button.
•  Opener speed & force settings can be retrieved to 

  c

values during troubleshootiing or when 

  determining if you want to make a change.
•  A “Service Recommended” message will appear after 

  a preset number of cycles. The number of recommended 

  cycles can be adjusted by the installer.
