MOUNTING SOURCE & SENSOR
Locations of existing units can be reused if that is desired. Safe-T-Beam®
System (STB) Source and Sensor do not have to be mounted on garage
door frame. They can be placed anywhere along garage door wall that is
convenient for mounting, provided the location meets the
1) They must be placed across the door opening,
2) at proper height,
3) with a clear line of sight between them. (Max. Range is 30 feet).
(They may be mounted on floor, only as a last resort, if there is
no other option. Not recommended.)
To ease mounting, source and sensor units can be detached
from the bracket by pulling them apart. After mounting brackets,
slide units back onto brackets.
Ensure there will be an unobstructed path between source
and sensor. Sensor should be mounted on the side of the garage
door opening that receives
the least direct sunlight.

Once location is established, measure height of bracket as
shown. Hold bracket in place and mark hole locations. 1/8" pilot
holes are recommended.

No height adjustment is needed for units mounted on floor.
Reuse of existing wiring is easiest and recommended unless it is broken,
cut, frayed or there is a problem. If you can reuse existing wiring —
SKIP FORWARD TO STEP 4. If new wiring must be installed, the path
shown below is recommended.
Need to install new wire? Wire and Wire Clips (for fastening the wire to
the rail) can be purchased through Customer Service at 1-800-35-GENIE
or at a local Genie Professional Dealer using the information at the end of
this instruction. The path shown below is recommended for routing the
Route two (2) lengths of two (2) conductor wire (See above) from
opener, along top of rail.
Fasten wire to rail.
— Evenly space fasteners along rail.
Fasten to header and wall (preferably with insulated staples).
Allow for some slack at the source and sensor units and cut off
any excess wire.
When using insulated staples, be aware that staples which
are too tight can cut or pinch wires. Cut or pinched wires
can cause the Safe-T-Beam® System to stop working. When
using insulated staples, make sure you fasten them only as
tightly as needed to hold the wire snugly.
At source and sensor, route wires through bracket as shown and
attach wires at terminals. Either wire to either terminal
1/4" x 1-1/4"
Lag Screws (provided)
EITHER WIRE TO EITHER TERMINAL IS OKAY
If installing new wiring:
At opener, twist striped wires together. Twist plain
wires together. Feed down through control wire tube "chimney"
at top of opener.
CONTROL WIRE TUBE
Attach to terminals #1 and #2 (again either wire).
Bundle excess wire and tape to top of power head.

SAFE-T-BEAM® SYSTEM TEST
Safe-T-Beam® System must be installed and working properly in order for
door opener to function.
During testing of the Safe-T-Beam® System, be sure to
stay clear of the door and any moving parts. It is
preferrable to use a long-handled object to interrupt the
beam during tests.
Start door moving in close direction.
Pass an object through the path of the Safe-T-Beam® System in
order to interrupt beam.
— Door should stop and reverse direction to fully open position.
If door will not run in closed direction, check for:
• Misalignment of Safe-T-Beam® System
(Red LED on source unit will be blinking).
• Obstruction in path of beam.
• Pinched or broken wire.
• Loose wiring connection.
If you still have a problem , contact Customer Service at 1-800-35-GENIE.
NOTE: If the situation demands that the door be closed, this can be done
by pressing and holding the wall button or wall console button until the
door is fully closed.
As the door is closing, constantly observe the door
opening to prevent anyone moving into the path of
If this happens, immediately release button.
