FAQ's

Q.
Can electrical noise or other transmissions cause Lodar to start by mistake?

A.
No. We use a digital coding system, asking the Receiver to recognise a specific code from the Transmitter

Could any other Transmitters work my Receiver?

A.
No. Each system is individually coded

The Standard Transmitter uses 1 x 9v PP3 Alkaline Battery
The Mini Transmitter uses 2 x AAA Coin Cells
The IP Transmitter uses 4 x 1.5v AAA Alkaline Batteries

It will be a little less for the Mini Transmitters



Q.
How do I know when to replace the battery?

A.
The LED in the Keypad will flash every second

What happens if I lose my Transmitter?

Contact the person who sold you the unit, or one of our Distributors, quoting the Model and Serial number on the Receiver. A new Transmitter can be on its way to you in hours

A.
Yes. We obtain all the necessary approvals of the countries in which we sell Lodar



Q.
What is the maximum range?

A.
We guarantee a minimum range with each model although you may well get a greater distance; it depends on the circumstances. For full information on each Model please refer to the Spec Sheets in the Products page. The maximum range we can achieve with a standard product is 1000ft(300m) although by using a Yargi aerial we can get to a mile with line of sight



Q.
Is Lodar waterproof?

A
All Receivers are waterproof to IP67
The IP Series Transmitter are also waterproof to IP67. This means they can be submerged under 3ft(1m) of water for 1 hour without any ingress
