Modular Remote Control Systems
200
Series
A Remote Control System can be constructed using a FireFly, FireBlade, ‘204’ or ‘205’
hand held transmitter with a 210 receiver and any combination of output module(s).
The transmitters have up to 16 buttons. Each button can be paired any or many specific
outputs of the receiver. Each 210 receiver has the capacity to learn up to 48 unique
transmitter switches.
The output modules can be used to provide relay controlled outputs, each of the output
modules connects directly to the 210Rx.
Any transmitter switch may be married to one or many of the receiver’s outputs, or a single
switch may be mapped to any number of the receiver’s outputs to enable a powerful and
flexible remote control system. Full configuration instructions follow in section 3.
The transmitter encoder uses EMC compliant radio transmitter modules and complies with
ETSI330-220

1 Pre-Configuring the Remote Control System
There are three Steps:
1. Pre-Configure the 210Rx to operate with a type of Transmitter (e.g. the 204 range or 205 range)
2. Map the Transmitter(s) switch(es) to the 210Rx output(s)
3. Set the 210Rx outputs to be latching, momentary or timed.
1.1
Pre-Configure the 210Rx to operate with a Transmitter Series
1. Ensure option link J8 is open.
2. Apply power to the 210Rx, All output LEDS flash alternately. This is factory reset default state.
3. Briefly Press any switch on the transmitter.
The 210Rx will now confirm this by flashing LED 1 to show it is configured for use with a handheld
transmitter.
Note This will now happen at each power on.

Mapping a Transmitter Switch to a 210 Receiver Output
One or many transmitter switches may be mapped to one or many 210Rx outputs, Decide which switch on the
Transmitter is to operate which output channel on the 210 Receiver decoder.
1. Briefly press the 210 Rx learn switch until the LED1-16 indicates the desired output channel
2. Operate the desired transmitter switch briefly
3. The LED on the 210Rx will extinguish.
4. Operate the desired transmitter switch briefly again
5. The LED on the 210Rx will turn on briefly and then extinguish.
6. The selected transmitter switch will operate the 210Rx output channel.
This procedure may be repeated for each transmitter and each 210Rx output required.
1.2
Configuration of the 210Rx Receiver Decoder Outputs
Option links LK 1-16 configure the operation of the outputs. Please note that the link status is read only on
‘power up’ and thus after changing the links, power must be removed and re-applied.
LK 1–16
Output 1
Outputs 2 -16
Open
Mom or Timed
Mom (The O/P operates for as long as the transmitter switch is held on)
Connected
Latch or Timed
Latch (The O/P changes state each time the Transmitter is operated)
1.2.1 Setting the Timed output (Channel 1)
This is set by VR1 with a delay of from 0 to 15 minutes. To set the time delay:
1. Remove power.
2. Place a shorting link header on option link J8.
3. Apply power
4. Depress and release the learn button twice.
5. The 210Rx will then enter the ‘time set mode’
6. LED1 will illuminate, indicating that output 1 time delay is to be set.
7. Using a fine screwdriver, adjust potentiometer VR1.
8. An indication of the time delay set is shown by LED’s 9-15.
After setting the timed output the unit must be powered down and option link header J8 removed before
it can be used.
1.3
Erasing the 210Rx Receiver Outputs (Return to Factory Default State)
1.
2.
3.
4.
To completely erase the 210Rx decoder’s memory, press and hold the 210Rx learn switch.
The learn LED (LED 17) will illuminate
Hold the Learn switch until the learn LED extinguishes (approx 10 seconds).
Release the learn button and all the output LED’s 1-16 will now flash alternately to indicate that all encoder
data has been erased and the 21Rx has returned to factory default state.
Note: It is not possible erase individual transmitters.
1.4
Connecting output Modules to the 210 Receiver
A range of ‘200’ series output modules are available which can be plugged into the 210 Receiver via the four IDC
header boxes on the receiver. The selection of output module will be dependant on the application. Please see
DS200S-1 for a summary the available modules and references to individual datasheets for each output module.

2 Antenna and Range
2.1
Connecting an Antenna
The 210Rx has a 300mm flying lead cable (50ohm) with a panel mount BNC socket provided to mount on an
enclosure. This cable may be extended however please note that typically there is a 50% range reduction with
every 3metres of coax cable used!
For increasing range performance a +3dB gain antenna is available. This is supplied with wall mounting bracket
and 2metres of coax cable, it plugs in directly to the 210Rx BNC connector.
2.2
Range
The antenna choice and position directly controls the system range. Keep it clear of other metal in the system.
The best position by far, is protruding from the top of the product. This is often not desirable for practical or
ergonomic reasons and thus a compromise may be needed. If an internal antenna must be used then try to
keep it away from other metal items, and in particular large ones like transformers, batteries and PCB tracks
and earth planes.
Note that the space around the antenna is as important as the antenna itself. All radio systems are dependant
on a radio signal being received through airspace.
The range quoted is the optimal in direct line of sight without obstacles and in good atmospheric conditions.
Range is affected by many things, for example local environmental conditions, atmospheric conditions,
interference from other radio transmitters. For evaluating the local environment please see our RF Meter
(DS006)
In very worse case applications the range quoted may be reduced to 30% of the optimal range stated.
2.3
Signal integrity
In systems where many encoders are in close proximity there may be occasions when, due to signal overlay
between encoders, it is difficult or impossible to guarantee system integrity. In such circumstances it is the
responsibility of the installer to ensure that the system performance is adequate for the purposes of the
installation.
2.4
Information availability
All products are supplied with their relevant datasheets. These are also available for download from the website
