Setting Voltages on Single Phase LiftMaster Operators - DDM Garage Doors Blog

Posted September 18th, 2020 at 6:21 pm by Dan Musick

Installers and salesmen order sectional door operators to match the operator voltages to the voltages in the buildings. Sometimes salesmen order operators with the wrong voltage, and then need to change the operator voltage. This can be done by changing the wires at the motor, as long as the building voltage is 110 or 220 volts. The installer should also change the transformer so that the primary voltage matches the building voltage.

Rather than manufacture one operator for 110 volts and one for 220 volts, LiftMaster designed dual voltage operators. This simplified the process of setting voltages on single-phase LiftMaster operators. By doing this, they were able to cut their warehouse inventory in half for the two voltages. And, for the “oops” events where an installer doesn’t realize the difference until he has installed the unit with the wrong voltage, the solution is simply a matter of unplugging a wiring harness connector from one socket and plugging it into an adjacent socket.

The socket on the left is for 110 volts, while the empty socket on the right is for 220 volts.

LiftMaster achieved this design by installing a dual voltage transformer with wiring harnesses running from the logic control board to the power supply. In the image below, either 110 or 220 volts will work.

Setting voltages on single-phase LiftMaster operators is simple with dual voltage transformers and the Logic 5 control boards.

Huge inventory of parts and torsion springs for same or next day shipping! Here you will find all you need in the most common sizes of 1 3/4," 2," 2 1/4," and 2 5/8" inside diameter springs. Please contact us for specialty springs such as TorqueMaster, EZ Set, self-Storage, and steel rolling door springs as many of these have been subject to supply chain shortages. Larger 3 3/4" and 6" inside diameter commercial and industrial springs may require a day or two to ship.

COVID update. No mask, no service! When picking up parts please wear a mask. We'll gladly provide one. Please honor the six foot social distancing rule. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Shipping times and costs have changed. Normal transit times are currently not guaranteed, even on next day and second day shipments. Shipping prices on items over eight feet have more than tripled.
