Rako RCM070 Wall-Plates: Installation, Programming and Operating Instructions
Flush Fixing a Wallplate to a Back Box
Rako wall-plates are designed to operate at safety extra low voltages (6V). When fixing the wall-plates to existing back-boxes
there may be mains wiring present, if this is the case then the wiring should be made safe, properly insulated and any metal back-
boxes earthed. Earthing of the back box is essential if a decorative metal front plate is being used. Should there be any doubt in
how to do this contact a qualified electrician.

Checking for correct operation
Rako control panels are supplied with a pullout tab to prevent inadvertent operation and battery deterioration
during transit. Slide the tab out of the battery compartment. The Rako control panel should now be
To check this press one of the buttons on the front of the Electronics Module and the indicating LED should
illuminate briefly for a single flash. If the LED does not flash or it flashes repeatedly for a short burst (low
battery warning) then you should contact Rako Controls.
The Rako RCM series of wall-plates are designed to be powered by batteries. The designed battery life is
better than 3 years (based on 30 button presses daily) but the batteries will eventually need replacing. In
normal use the Led on the front panel illuminates momentarily when a button is pressed to indicate that a
(radio) transmission has been made. When the batteries are approaching the end of their useful life the Led
will continue to blink after a button has been pressed. When this starts to happen the batteries should be
replaced as soon as possible.
Always use two CR2016 batteries.
To replace the batteries remove the Wall Plate
from the wall and unclip the Electronics Module from it’s mounting plate, taking care not to damage the aerial
(note that when flush mounted the aerial may be located in a hole outside the back-box). Carefully Slide out
the battery compartment drawer. Replace with new batteries ensuring that the positive (+) terminal makes
contact with the battery clip and the negative (-) terminal with the pad on the circuit board.
To ensure reliable operation always ensure that battery contacts and battery surfaces are kept clean of any
grease, moisture or other contamination.
Lithium batteries may explode if handled incorrectly. Always dispose of used batteries in accordance with
