25 Code GTO F310 Digital Keypad
Instructions for Wired and Wireless Installations

Thank you for purchasing the GTO Digital Keypad. Be sure to read the directions carefully and completely. Before permanently mounting the keypad, please program the keypad and test its range.

IMPORTANT: Your keypad may need to be hard wired due to the fact that it must accept interference according to FCC regulations listed below. For example, applications that are relativity close to cell towers or airports may receive intermittent interference and require hard-wiring.

The GTO Digital Keypad is a multipurpose keypad that can work with other applications in addition to GTO gate openers and locks. As a wired keypad it can operate garage door openers and gate openers, that require 24 volts or less and accept normally open contacts. As a wireless keypad it can be used with any gate or garage door opener that receives a 318 MHz RF signal. The keypad must be used in conjunction with the GTO garage door receiver kit (part # RB709) on any other garage door.

SAFETY NOTE: Never install the keypad where a person can reach through the gate to activate it, or where a person can touch the gate while activating the keypad. The recommended minimum distance between the gate and keypad is 10 ft.

FCC WARNING: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in particular installations. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: • Reorient or replace the receiver antenna. • Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver. • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

GTO, Inc. gate opener accessories are warranted by the manufacturer against defects in workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase, provided recommended installation procedures have been followed.

In the case of product failure due to defective material or manufacturer workmanship within the one (1) year warranty period, the accessory will be repaired or replaced (at the manufacturer’s option) at no charge to the customer, if returned freight prepaid to GTO, Inc., 3121 Hartsfield Rd., Tallahassee, FL 32303. IMPORTANT: Call 850/575-4144 or fax 850/575-8950 for a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number before returning goods to factory. Products received at the factory without an RGA will not be accepted. Replacement or repaired parts are covered by this warranty for the remainder of the one (1) year warranty period. GTO, Inc. will pay the shipping charges for return to the owner of items repaired.

The manufacturer will not be responsible for any charges or damages incurred in the removal of the defective parts for repair, or for the reinstallation of those parts after repair.

Features of the Keypad
You may program up to 25 different personal entry codes, allowing you to give different entry codes to different users. For example, you can give a delivery person their own entry code, which you can easily change after they have made the delivery. This will prevent them from being able to regain access, while still allowing those to whom you gave other entry codes full access.

After entering a valid code, pressing any key while the gate is opening will stop the gate; pressing any key while the gate is stopped and the gate will reverse direction. The keypad will not affect the auto-close setting of your gate opener system.

The keypad face will light up and beeper will beep at the press of any key. The keypad memory will recognize your entry code in a string of up to 20 digits; if it finds the correct sequence it will activate the gate opener. As a security feature, the keypad will shut down for 40 seconds if it does not find the correct code sequence within a 20 digit string. This will discourage an unauthorized person from trying to use random numbers to access your property.

Your entry codes will remain stored in memory even when the batteries go dead. The keypad will remember your entry codes as long as you don’t press the RESET button.

Installing Batteries

NOTE: 3 AA batteries are required to power the keypad unless an external power supply such as the gate openers power source is used. Low voltage wire from the external power source must be connected to the POWER IN terminals on the keypad control board, if batteries are not installed.

Step 1: Remove the two screws from the bottom of the keypad and separate the keypad from its housing.

Step 2: Install 3 AA batteries (not included).

Wired Installation of the Keypad
NOTE: If you also plan to power the keypad with the gate opener’s power source, run two pairs of wires as described below. One pair to hard-wire the keypad and the other pair to connect the keypad to the gate opener’s battery.

Step 1: Turn the gate opener’s power switch OFF. Use 16 gauge, stranded, direct burial low voltage wire (part no. RB509) to connect the keypad to the opener control board. Run wire through PVC pipe from the ground to keypad and from the ground to the opener control board to protect the wire from lawn mowers or grazing animals.
Determine how the wire will enter the keypad (i.e. from the back through a hole drilled in the mounting post or running the wire on the surface of the post). Remove the small rectangular knock-out on the back of the keypad cover and pull the wire into the cover. Then mount the cover to the post using the screws provided.
