In addition to the JF-2MED master station, the JF Series supports a maximum of two door stations and two JF-2HD(or JF-2SD audio only sub) sub masters. Note that there is no equipment, modification, or work-around that will allow the device to support more than these quantities.

The JF Series stations are not compatible with other intercom stations from Aiphone. All compatible door and sub master stations must contain the prefix of “JF”, ex. JF-DV.

From the door station to the master station, the maximum wiring distance is 330′ (100m). From the master station to the expansion station, the maximum wiring distance is 330′ (100m).
Note: The JF Series offers a distance booster between the door station and master station, part number JBW-BA, which extends the maximum wiring distances up to a total of 980’. However, there is not an option to increase the maximum wiring distances between the master station and sub master stations.
The JF Series offers a built-in normally open, dry contact (L/L terminals) for door release, with a contact rating of 24v AC/DC, 500mA. For strikes with higher power requirements, or when a normally closed contact is needed for a magnetic lock, the RY-18L is required.
The RY-18L is always recommended when using door release, regardless of power requirements, to protect the JF station from power surges or other power-related events. For more information about this relay, including contact ratings and wiring instructions, click here.
For installations with two door stations needing door release functionality, the RY-3DL multi-door release adaptor is required. For more information about this relay, including contact ratings and wiring instructions, click here.
For that information you need to call the manufacturer of the door strike or magnetic lock. Aiphone cannot answer that question and cannot provide you with an acceptable alternative.
The JF Series offers a built-in normally open, dry contact (L/L terminals) for door release or may utilize the RY-18L/RY-3DL external door release relay. If the lock is wired in series with its power supply and the JF-2MED, remove the wires connected to the L/L terminals and touch them together. This simulates the contact closure provided by the station.
The same test may be done if the RY-18L or RY-3DL relay is used by shorting the BROWN and ORANGE wires on the RY-18L, or the NO / COM connections on the RY-3DL. For more information about the RY-18L, click here to view its installation manual. For more information about the RY-3DL, click here to view its installation manual.
The RY-ES external signal relay may be used to trigger a 3rd party chime or strobe when the JF-2MED master station is receiving a call. The relay will pulse with the chime of the master station providing a normally open, dry contact. For more information about this relay, including contact ratings and wiring instructions, click here.
This can be caused by environmental factors, exceeding recommended wiring distance or wire type, ambient electrical interference, or physical damage to the unit.
The JF Series is intended for lower volume environments, such as homes or small offices. If the door station is located near a busy street, a loud piece of equipment like an air conditioning vent, it may be difficult to hear the person. There is a quick test to see if the problem is in the environment, or if it’s with the unit itself.
If communication is regained or improved, the environment may be too loud for this series of door station.
If the JF-2MED is unresponsive with four flashing lights, this is an indicator that there is a short on one of the connections feeding into the JF-2MED.
If the JF-2MED appears off with no illuminated LED lights, ensure the power switch (see diagram below) is set to the “ON” position. If the power switch is set to the proper position, check for ~18v DC coming from the power supply (PS-1820UL) wired to the JF-2MED with a volt meter.
Date and Time have not been set up, see pages 7-8 in the JF-2MED Manual.
By default, door two is disabled. See page 9, section 7-7, in the JF-2MED Manual for enabling video for door two.
