Control Relay Contacts Remotely
The RC-2A Remote Controller provides
remote relay operation from any standard
Touch Tone telephone.
The controller is designed to be installed
either locally or remotely. For local installations the RC-2A can be installed in parallel on
any analog communications path, such as
analog C.O. lines, analog PABX/KSU stations
or Viking’s W-Series Doorboxes and will
passively monitor for Touch Tone commands.
For off-premise applications, the RC-2A will
answer analog C.O. lines or PABX/KSU stations after a selectable ring delay. A field
programmable access code can be programmed to prevent unauthorized usage, and
then the RC-2A can be activated to allow remote relay operation.

Modes
IMPORTANT: Please read the following sections to determine which RC-2A mode works best for your application.
A. Choosing a Mode
The RC-2A has two operational modes built in, called the Legacy and Alternative modes. The Legacy mode is the standard mode of operation that has existed in all previous versions of the RC-2A. The Alternative mode is a second mode
of operation that increases the RC-2A's flexibility in some applications. The operational mode you should use depends
on the exact application for the RC-2A. Here are some general guidelines, but in some applications, the opposite mode
may be needed (also see section B-C below describing the advantages and disadvantages of each operational mode):
Application Description
Recommended Mode
Additional Programming
Use with a Viking W-1000, W-2000A, or W-3000
handsfree doorbox.
Legacy Mode
(traditional software)
Set one code switch to D and set DIP switch 5
to OFF.
Use with a Viking E-30 or 1600A Series handsfree phone.
Alternative Mode
(new software)
Set at least one code switch to B, set DIP switch
5 to ON and DIP switch 7 to OFF.
On a dedicated telephone line or PBX extension
(no other phones on the same line or extension).
Legacy Mode
(traditional software)
Set one code switch to C, set DIP switch 2 to
ON and DIP switch 5 to OFF.
Wired across a telephone line in a residential application (sharing the line with other phones), to control lights, door or gate.
Legacy Mode
(traditional software)
Set DIP switch 5 to OFF and do not set any
code switches to C or D.
If you will be connecting the RC-2A to a telephone line or PABX extension (regardless of the mode you will be using),
the RC-2A is always monitoring the telephone line or PBX extension for the correct string of Touch Tones dialed. If the
correct string is detected, the RC-2A will operate the relay. For example, if you chose the Alternative mode, programmed a single digit relay command of "9" and installed the RC-2A onto a telephone line or PABX extension that is
shared with other telephones, there could be a problem. As the other phones are making outgoing phone calls, if they
dial a phone number that includes the digit "9", the RC-2A will operate it's relay. In these applications, you must either
use the Legacy mode and set a security access code (no rotary entry code switches set to D), or use the Alternative
mode and set at least one digit of the relay activation command to be either a "," or “#".
B. Legacy Mode
1. Advantages
a. There are "latch" and "unlatch" relay commands (10 and 19).
b. There is a Touch Tone hang up command (8 or 18).
c. A wider range of ring delay selections for remote access (1, 2, 6, or 15 rings).
2. Disadvantages
a. When a security access code has been programmed (no code switches set to D), the complete digit string to
operate the relay is relatively long (6 digits total).
b. The relay activation commands are fixed in software (not programmable).
c. Limited "timed" relay activations available (5 seconds is the longest available).
C. Alternative Mode
1. Advantages
a. Shorter length relay activation commands (can be 1, 2, or 3 digits in length).
b. Wider range of timed relay activations available (up to 10 minutes maximum).
c. You can program the digits dialed to activate the relay.
2. Disadvantages
a. There are no "latch/unlatch" relay commands.
b. There is no Touch Tone hang up command.
c. Fewer ring delay selections for remote access (2 or 15 rings only).
3.
Legacy Programming Mode
Important: The RC-2A ships by default in the Legacy Programming mode (DIP switch 5 OFF). Optional programming is
also available (see Alternative Programming Mode). The alternative programming mode dramatically changes the programming and operation of the RC-2A. Use only the programming features described in the respective sections for the programming mode you choose.

1. Setting the Security Access Code
The RC-2A contains (3) rotary access/entry code switches (see diagram
right). Using a small flat blade screwdriver, rotate the white arrow on each
switch to the desired access code setting. The code may be any digit 0-9 or
“C” (# on a Touch Tone pad). Note: For extreme security applications, a special telephone with a 4 x 4 keypad may be used (Fax Back Document 855).

Switch 1: Latch Commands
If this DIP switch is in the ON position, the relay will not be able to be latched (maintained) and command codes
10 and 19 will be ignored.
Switch 2: Ring Delay
The ring delay is the number of incoming rings before the RC-2A automatically answers the line. The RC-2A
answers on the fifteenth ring by default. This can be changed to the first, second or sixth ring by following the
instructions above for DIP switch 2 and rotary switch positions.
Switch 3: Closure Limitations
If this DIP switch is placed in the ON position, only one closure will be allowed during the access.
4.
Switch 4: Relay Activation Times
This DIP switch is only used in the “Alternative Programming Mode” and has no function in the “Legacy Mode”.
Switch 5: Selecting Modes
If this DIP switch is in the OFF position, the RC-2A is in the “Legacy Programming Mode”. In the ON position, the
RC-2A is in the “Alternative Programming Mode”.
Switch 6: Relay Acknowledgement Tones
With DIP switch 6 in the OFF position, acknowledgement tones (beeps for relay confirmation, etc.) are turned off.
With DIP switch 6 in the ON position, acknowledgement tones are on.
Switch 7: Automatic Answer
With DIP switch 7 in the OFF position, the automatic phone line answering feature is turned off. With DIP switch
7 in the ON position, the automatic phone line answering feature is turned on. See DIP switch 2 and rotary switch
positions for ring delay (total number of incoming rings before the unit automatically answers the line).
C. Relay Activation Codes
These activation codes are pre-programmed and cannot be changed except when using the
Alternative Programming mode.

To interrogate the relay status (two beeps - energized, one beep - de-energized) ............................................ 1#
To release the phone line (remote only) (three beeps)....................................................................................... 18 or 8
Alternative Programming Mode
Important: In the “Alternative Programming Mode” (DIP switch 5 ON), programming and operation are changed dramatically. Please use the following programming sections only when programming in the “Alternative Programming Mode”. All
“Legacy” Programming and Operation become un-usable and you may ONLY program and operate the RC-2A using the
information provided in the following sections.
A. Security
In the “Alternative Programming Mode” (DIP switch 5 ON), access to the RC-2A is immediate
and it becomes possible to program a one, two or three digit relay activation code. No security access code is programmable or required to gain access.
B. Entry Code Switches
The blue entry code switches set the relay activation code. This code can make use of any
of the digits available on the rotary switches, as long as the user is aware that D and E can
only be entered using a special 4x4 keypad. Note: For more information on using the RC2A with a special 4x4 keypad, retrieve Fax Back Document 855.

To program the relay activation code to be , or #, set all three code switches to F (shown right). In this case, either a , or # will activate the relay.
Operation
A. Legacy Mode
If the RC-2A is programmed to answer a ringing line, it will answer after the selected ring delay. A single acknowledgement tone will be heard, signaling the user that the RC-2A has answered the line. If a security access code has
been programmed (no code switches set to D), a touch-tone "," plus the security access code may be entered at this
time and a second acknowledgement tone will be heard. After this acknowledgement tone, the built in 2 digit relay commands can be dialed (see page 5, C. Relay Activation Codes). If "," plus an incorrect security access code is entered,
the RC-2A will immediately disconnect (hang-up). To prevent unauthorized use, if a user dials "," plus an incorrect
security access code on 5 consecutive incoming calls, the unit will disconnect and not answer the line for 60 minutes.
If the RC-2A is not programmed to answer the line, it can passively monitor a communication path for the proper access
and/or activation code.
The RC-2A provides a relay activation (opening or closing a relay contact) remotely via DTMF Touch Tone input over
a standard analog C.O. line or PABX/KSU station. When the correct relay activation code is entered, the RC-2A activates its relay contacts on the terminal strip followed by an acknowledgement tone.
1. Accessing the RC-2A Remotely
Step 1
Call the RC-2A using a Touch Tone phone.
Step 2
When the RC-2A answers, a single beep (acknowledgement tone) will be heard.
Step 3
If the security access code has been disabled (one or more code switches set to D), go to step 4. If a security
access code has been set (no code switches set to D), enter "," followed by your 3 digit security access code
(see page 4, A. Security Access Code).
Step 4
Enter a two digit relay activation code (see page 5, C. Relay Activation Codes). A single or double beep
(acknowledgement tone) should be heard
Step 5
Enter "8" or "18" before hanging up to force the RC-2A to release the line. Alternatively, the unit will disconnect if
no Touch Tones are detected for 60 seconds.
2. Accessing the RC-2A Locally
Step 1
Establish voice connection with the RC-2A by accessing the doorbox or dedicated line.
Step 2
If the security access code has been disabled (one or more code switches set to D), go to step 3. If a security
access has been set (no code switches set to D), enter "," followed by your 3 digit security access code (see
page 4, A. Security Access Code).
Step 3
Enter a two digit relay activation code (see page 5, C. Relay Activation Codes). A single or double beep
(acknowledgement tone) should be heard.
Step 4
If a security code has been set (no code switches set to D), enter "8" or "18" before hanging up to place the RC2A back into secure mode. Alternatively, the unit will automatically return to the secure mode if no Touch Tones
are detected for 60 seconds.
B. Alternative Mode
If the RC-2A is programmed to answer a ringing line, it will do so after the selected ring delay. A single or double
acknowledgement tone will be heard, signaling the user that the RC-2A has answered the line. After this acknowledgement tone, the one, two or three digit relay activation code can be dialed and a second acknowledgement tone
will be heard. The relay activation code is programmed by the setting of the code switches (see pages 5-6, B. Entry
Code Switches). If the RC-2A is not programmed to answer the line, it can passively monitor a communication path
for the proper activation code.
The RC-2A provides a relay activation (opening or closing a relay contact) remotely via DTMF Touch Tone input over
a standard analog C.O. line or PBX/KSU station. When the correct relay activation code is entered, the RC-2A activates it's relay contacts on the terminal strip followed by a single beep as an acknowledgement tone.
Only "timed" relay activation is possible in the Alternative mode. When the relay activation code is dialed, the timing
of the relay contacts depends on the setting of DIP switches 1-4 (see page 6, C. DIP Switch Settings). If the RC-2A
is accessed remotely and there is a relay activation already in progress, the RC-2A indicates this by producing two
beeps instead of a single beep when it answers. At this point, the user may allow the existing relay activation to continue or start the relay activation over again by entering the relay activation code.
