Step 9. Loosen the Closing Position Ring set screw using the provided 5/64" hex wrench.
Step 10. Rotate the Closing Position Ring Assembly until the closed position magnet aligns with the Reed switch. Tighten the set screw.
Next, the Open Position Ring Assembly position must be set approximately 180 degrees from the Closing Ring Magnet.
Step 11. Loosen the Open Position Ring set screw and rotate until it is approximately 180° from the Closing Position set screw.
Step 12. Turn the breaker switch to the "RESET" position.
Step 13. Use a jumper wire to jump terminal one and two to activate the opening procedure. Note position of open door and allow door to close. Readjust the Open Position Ring to obtain desired angle of opening.
Once the low power operator is functioning, make any adjustments to the Trimpot. The default door hold-open time is 15 seconds. The hold-open time can be adjusted from five to 30 seconds.
The next set of step is to install the door operator switch, part number 574. This battery operated switch is equipped with a 433 MHz transmitter that must be programmed to the receiver in the LEO. The receiver is designed to learn up to 12 transmitters.
The door operator switch will be surface mounted for this installation.
Step 1. Install the 9-volt battery into the wall switch.
Step 2. Determine the mounting location of the door operator switch. It is best to location the mounting screws into a solid mounting surface or wall stud.
Step 3. Punch out the holes in the wall box designated "Mounting Screw Punch Out."
Step 4. Drill pilot holes for mounting the wall box.
Step 5. Fasten the wall box to the wall using two #8-32 x 1-1/2" wood screws.
Step 6. Assemble the seal adapter plate and install the two #6-32 screws. Do not tighten the screws as the wall switch cover plate slides onto the two screws.
Step 7. Connect the two wires to the wall switch cover plate.
Step 8. Slide the wall switch cover plate onto the two screws.
Step 9. Secure the screws through the openings in the wall switch cover plate using a provided hex wrench.
To program the wall switch transmitter and the key fob to the receiver in the LEO:
Step 1. Press the receiver's programming button for less than two seconds and release. The receiver's red LED changes from blinking red to a solid green.
Step 2. Press the wall plate closing the switch once. Verify the receiver's LED changes to solid red. The receiver is learning the transmitter's code.
Step 3. Wait a few seconds and test the operation of the wall Switch. The receiver's LED will blink green several times indicating the learning procedure is ending. Once the learning procedure has ended, the LED will blink red.
To clear the receiver's memory and delete all transmitters/key fobs, press the programming button for more than eight seconds until the LED starts blinking green. Release the button and the LED should begin blinking red. At this point the memory is cleared and transmitters/key fobs can be programmed.
Once all of the transmitters/key fobs have been programmed install the cover onto the low energy operator.
The Norton LEO can be ordered with a choice of two closer power sizes; three through six or one through four. The current draw of this low power operator is .6 Amps. There is Double Pole/Double Throw relay output capable of releasing an electronic lock mechanism to function in conjunction with the operator. The LEO is available in a variety of finishes including acrylic and powder coat.
