*In order for this setup to work, you must have an ERA-DCRX that is within range and working correctly from an ERA transmitter or receiver. We will call this “receiver 1” in the steps below. The “out-of-range” ERA-DCRX will be referred to as “receiver 2.”
- Program the ERA-EXTX to “receiver 2” (the receiver that is out of range from the transmitter/sensor). IMPORTANT!Remember, there is an ERA-DCRX (“receiver 1”) that is already functioning correctly. This IS NOT the receiver we are programming to the ERA-EXTX. In the steps below we will program it to another ERA-DCRX receiver, “receiver 2”. NOTE: If you are using the ERA-RXPG or ERA-VPRX, for “receiver 2,” the steps are similar but consult that receiver’s manual to put it in programming mode.
- Hold down the “mode” button on “receiver 2.” After approximately 3 seconds, you’ll hear a short tone sound and the RED LED for zone 1 will blink.
- Task off the cover of the ERA-EXTX. Push the “front” button.
- You will then hear a short musical chime sound. This denotes the transmitter (ERA-EXTX) is programmed to that zone.
- Hold down the “zone” button again and after 3 seconds, you will hear another short tone sound. This takes the receiver out of programming mode.
- Next, make sure “receiver 1,” (the one that is within range) is unplugged. This is IMPORTANT.
- Remove the cover from the ERA-DCRX (consult the manual for details).
- Take the RED wire from the ERA-EXTX and wire it into the positive screw on the 12V DC output for Zone 1. Please see the diagram below. You will need to cut the c-clamp off the red and black wire and stripe them a bit. The RED wire corresponds to the “front” button on the ERA-EXTX.
- Take the BLACK wire from the ERA-EXTX and wire it into the negative screw on the 12V DC output for Zone 1. Please see the diagram below.
- You can ignore the WHITE WIRE.
- Set the duration of the 12V DC output to 5-seconds. Please consult the user manual for the ERA-DCRX to find the location of these dip switches.
- Plug “receiver 1” back in.
- Trigger the transmitter/Sensor already programmed to the ERA-DCRX “receiver 1.” “Receiver 1” should chime. Simultaneously, the RED LED on the ERA-EXTX will light, and “receiver 2” should chime.
