Echoflex PTM Keycard Switch Links and Functions Like Regular PTM Paddle Switch


When I link an Echoflex PTM Keycard Switch to a controller:

  • the station functions like a paddle-style PTM switch
  • the controller's link table shows a paddle-style PTM switch
  • the controller's power blink pattern indicates a linked paddle switch rather than keycard switch

Description/Explanation of Issue

The keycard switch has a paddle switch under the main plastic cover, with the switch being flipped upside down and specially configured to work as a keycard switch. The switch was likely installed in the wrong direction, and can easily be flipped in the field to resolve the issue.


Unscrew the faceplate of the station, rotate the face plate to face the opposite direction, and re-secure.
