How to connect the boundary and guide wires to the Automower® charging station

Once you’ve finished installing the boundary wire and guide wires in your Automower® installation, the next step is to connect these wires to the charging station. For Automower® NERA models, note that all connectors are accessible from the front of the charging station, not the back.

Follow these steps to connect the wires to the charging station:

  1. Prepare the wires: Use Automower® Connectors to connect the wires. Open the Automower® Connector, insert the wire and then close the connector using a pair of pliers. Trim the wire to leave 1–2 cm/0.4–0.8 inches protruding above each connector.

  1. Access the charging station: Tilt the top of the charging station. For Automower® NERA models, you also need to open the hatch.

  2. Connect the boundary wire: Push the right connector through the right slot in the charging station tower and push it onto the metal pin on the charging station with the mark AR. Repeat this process with the left connector, attaching it to the pin marked AL.

  3. Connect the guide wire: Push the connector onto the metal pin marked GUIDE, G1, G2 or G3. The number of available pins and supported guide wires depends on your specific Automower® model. Automower® 320 NERA and 310E NERA have three guide wire connections, but they only support the use of two guide cables, so only G1 and G2 can be used. Connecting a guide wire to G3 will not work. On Automower® 410XE NERA, 430X NERA and 450X NERA all three guide wires can be used.

  4. Secure the charging station: With the boundary wire and guide wires now connected to the charging station, secure the charging station to the ground using the supplied screws.

Tip: Consider marking the wires with wire labels for easy reconnection, especially if the charging station will be stored indoors during the winter.
