    Default LOR Controller RESET Procedures

    I will kick this off by posting the reset procedures for the two main AC controllers that I use (16PC and 16D). If some of you use other models that have different reset (such as the CCR), please post the reset procedures here. I also use the DC controller for my Mighty Minis .. but I could not find the rest procedures for it .. Since it also has the channel switches (instead of firmware setting), I would assume the reset to be the same as the 16D model below.

    Here are my first two:

    CTB-16PC RESET

    For a CTB-16PC series controller (plastic enclosure), disconnect the power, remove the jumper next to the data connectors (usually in the second position (or J2)) and reapply power. The status light will blink very fast. Wait a few seconds, remove power, replace the jumper on the J2 position and reapply power. You've reset the board. Go into the Hardware Utility and make sure the board is assigned to the correct physical location.

    CTB-16D RESET

    Disconnect the power, set the unit ID switches to 0-0, and reapply power. The status light will blink very fast. Wait a few seconds, remove power, change the Unit ID switches back to where they were and reapply power. You've reset the board.

    My boards are the CTB-16DV6, but I think the V5 boards (and below) have the same reset procedure.
    Thanks,
