Pairing the Raptor Foot Switch

Pairing a Foot Switch to One Raptor

  1. Press and hold the Up button and the Down button on the Foot Switch at the same time until the Anchor Selection LEDs and the Mode LED on the Foot Switch begin to scroll red, green, red and red. Then release them.
  2. Immediately press the Pair button on the Indicator Panel located on the Raptor Pump Assembly. The PAIR/Maintenance LED will begin to flash blue. The Raptor and Foot Switch will go into Pairing Mode for 30 seconds. If a signal with three fast beeps occurs, the Raptor and Foot Switch have successfully paired. If 30 seconds pass while in Pairing Mode and they do not successfully pair, a chirp will sound from the Pump Assembly, signaling that the Pairing has timed out.
  3. If the Pair is unsuccessful, repeat the process.

Pairing a Foot Switch to Two Raptors
In order to Pair a Foot Switch to the Raptor, please be sure to first Pair the Raptors together. When two Raptors are paired together, any Foot Switch that was paired to an individual Raptor will no longer be paired. Please see the "Pairing Two Raptors and Programming the Mounting Location" section of the Raptor Owner's Manual. If the two Raptors are already paired together, a Foot Switch can be paired to either Raptor. When the pairing process is complete, the Foot Switch will be able to control both Raptors.

Clearing Paired Raptors from the Foot Switch
Press and hold the Up button and the Down button on the Foot Switch at the same time until all of the LED's at the top of the Foot Switch begin to scroll. Then release the buttons. The Foot Switch will go into Pairing Mode for 30 seconds. Once Pairing times out all Raptors will be cleared.
