The EMX WEL-200 was meticulously crafted with the needs of installers at the forefront.
To create a product that not only simplifies the installation process but also stands the test of time, offering prolonged durability and peak performance.
Yet, like any finely tuned instrument, the WEL-200 truly shines when certain best practices are adhered to during installation.
Below, we’ve highlighted these key guidelines to ensure you get the most out of your WEL-200, below the guidelines section, you can view a few videos that further explain the WEL-200 setup process.
Long-lasting installs are just a few steps away.
When mounting a WEL-200 system, Line of Sight must exist between the RX and each TX to ensure a good wireless connection. Line of Sight is illustrated below:
In the diagram, TX #1 and TX #3 have LINE OF SIGHT to the RX. TX #2 does not have LINE OF SIGHT to the RX because the operator will block the wireless signal. TX #2 may suffer from a poor connection and poor battery life.
Mount the RX to the exterior of the operator housing using #8 machine screws (the mounting holes can be accessed by removing the front cover). The RX must overhang the operator housing by about 1” (25mm) so that the antenna is not blocked. The antenna zone is illustrated below.
Examples of good and bad installations are shown below
Mount each TX near its sensing edge: First, wire the sensing edge into the TX’s terminal blocks. There is no polarity on this wiring. Next, use two #8 machine screws to secure the TX to the gate. Recommended locations are shown below for the front and side of a gate:
