Q: What Are Series I And Series Ii Electronics For Wall Consoles And Buttons?

A: Overhead Door integrates different technology into its openers and wall consoles. The technologies are known as Series I, Series II and Series III. Series II is backwards compatible to Series I. Series III is not backwards compatible without additional purchased parts. Contact your Overhead Door Distributor for further details. If the date code of your opener is 041217 or higher, you can use a Series II wall console with your opener. If not, you must use a Series I wall console for your opener.
