Locator Function
The Resident Alert System can be set to handle a locator function. For this purpose, beacon
modules and antennas of type IS75 or IS76 need to be installed on doors or corridors in the
building you want to supervise. When passing one of these modules the Wristband Transmitters of type MIYS37L refresh the position information that is stored into them. When triggering an alarm, the MIYS37L transmitters do not only transmit the identification (who sent the
alarm), but also the position of the last passed module (where has the alarm been triggered).
At the arrival of a call, the information of the actual position is indicated additionally on the
Main or Relay Units. This information can be made visible by pressing the yellow button on
the Main or Relay Unit.
“Locator” information block:
HELP
A03
POS: 077
255 positions (POS: 000 - 254) can be differentiated. When passing beacon modules with
position numbers 231 - 254 the MIYS37L transmitters can send a call for help automatically
without manual activation (wandering). Fixed transmitters that do not handle a Locator function (N46) are always indicated with the position 000.

IS76 Beacon with Ferrite Antenna
The IS76 Beacon system consists of two elements:


The IS76 Ferrite Antenna
The IS76 Ferrite Beacon Controller
IS76 Ferrite Antenna
The IS76 Ferrite antenna has to be mounted on the place that has to be identified with a
location beacon code. The antenna is well suited to be mounted in a vertical position on (or
next to) a door frame. In some circumstances it may also be mounted horizontally. The IS76
Ferrite Antenna can be placed outdoors as well as indoors.
IS76 Ferrite Beacon Controller
The IS76 Ferrite Beacon Controller is necessary to drive the IS76 Ferrite Antenna. It connects to the mains power via an external power supply. Up to two IS76 Ferrite Antennas may
be connected to the IS76 Beacon Controller, depending on the size of the passage that has
to be covered with the beacon. The beacon location code is set-up on the IS76 Ferrite
Beacon Controller. Contrary to the ferrite antenna, the IS76 Ferrite Beacon Controller has to
be mounted indoors, in a well ventilated cool place.

System Supervision
The operation of the IS76 Beacon system is supervised. An eventual operation failure
(broken wire or overload) is indicated by the front panel LED and by the opening of a
"normally closed" relay contact that is accessible from the terminal block. The supervision
output may be connected to an MIYRAC-type alarm transmitter which would transmit the
beacon operation failure to the Resident Alert System.

Features of the IS76 Beacon System





Ferrite antenna offers a better defined capture range that is less dependent on the
surrounding building material
The antenna may be installed in or outdoors
Up to 230 user selectable position (location) codes (001 to 230)
Up to 24 user selectable "Wandering" codes (231 to 254)
Supervision of the beacon functionality
IS76 Ferrite Antenna
The antenna is best fitted to be mounted vertically on a door's frame. In any case, the middle
of the antenna should be at a height of 40 inches (1 meter) from the floor. The antenna has
to be fixed by two screws, according to the figure below.

Remove the cover caps at both ends of the antenna by sliding them against the outside
Secure the antenna against the wall with both screws
Replace the cover caps by sliding them over the housing
Note:
Even if the functionality of the Ferrite Beacon System is not affected by the presence
of metallic items, it is not recommended to fix the antenna directly against such items.
In order to avoid overheating of the IS76 Beacon Controller, install the antenna at least
0.6 in (1.5 cm) away from metallic frames or surfaces.

IS76 Beacon Controller
The IS76 Beacon Controller can be fixed with two to five screws on the wall. Two holes at
2.36 in (60 mm) interval are provided for direct mounting on connection boxes.
The three upper holes are used for positioning the device and cannot be reached from the
Connection Compartment.
Two of the lower holes can be reached from outside and thus used for fixing the device.

Connection Compartment
All of the wiring and configuration functions such as:
• Connection of the IS76 Ferrite Antenna(s)
• Connection of the wired supervision output
• Setting of the Location identification code
can be carried out in the connection compartment. It is reached by taking off the lower part of
the housing (see). This can be done even if the device is fixed on the wall.
The connection cables can be channelled towards the outside through the hole next to the
terminal blocks or downwards by breaking off part of the rear housing.
Connection of the power supply can be done without taking off the lower part of the housing.
Enable Locator Function in Resident Alert System
In order to be operational, the Locator function has to be enabled in the Main Unit (refer to
section "Selection Locate Function YES or No" in the Main Unit user manual)
