Replacement Mircr2x

I'm looking to see if we can replace the receiver part of the MiRCR2X pair. The the trigger is activated on the transmitter side, the remote side (with the form c relay) would activate but between 10 seconds to 1 minute it would release then activate again, cycling back and forth like that. We had another unit in use that we moved over to the trouble location and the relay was steady at that point. We are using a 1 pair hardwired connection between the transmitter and receiver (roughly 200 - 300')

Thank you for posting a picture, this is very helpful.  So, mirrored controllers with a wire interface requires 3 wires instead of 2 shown in the photo.  When 2 wires are used, the controller goes into a constant state of error checking.  Please keep in mind, this 3rd wire is not optional, it may work, but not the way it was designed.  Please connect the 3rd wire and see if this resolves the issue.

Thanks,

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for the quick response. That would also explain the busy light at both locations. This was put in by another company about 3 or 4 years ago as an afterthought to a parking garage (technically 2 garages that mirror each other). The issue is that we do not have extra wires between these locations but given the length of time that both garages have been working up until now and putting the other working unit in place successfully it might be a hard sell to the customer that it's wiring related. Would it be something that once it communicates 2 way that it might go back to working?

Ok, please retry your test, but switch the jumpers to Beacon mode.  This may resolve the validation problem, please let me know if this works.

Thanks,

Ryan
