Note: Control Panel Assemblies are currently being manufactured with two 6-Pin connectors instead of a single 12-Pin connector. 

The Double 6-Pin to 12-Pin Adapter is needed* if the controller for your door is wired for a 12-Pin connector. You can check by looking at the back of your existing control panel assembly. It will either have 2 6-pin connectors coming out of the main circuit board, or it will have a single 12-pin connector.

Your door controller is likely wired with a 12-pin connector if it was not manufactured in one of the following time periods (when two 6-pin connectors have been used). 

  • 5/8/2018 - 8/5/2018
  • A short period around May 2020.
  • Beginning August 2023 - Current.

12-pin connectors were installed during all other manufacturing periods going back to 2015.

*Instructions to convert existing 12-pin to double 6-pin connector wiring is available in the following document: The Double 6-Pin to 12-Pin Adapter is not needed if you follow the instructions to convert your existing wiring.
