PLANNING THE INSTALLATION
Is this a COLOR Video installation?
This manual is written expressly for the QwikBus™ 2-wire Color systems that will be
using the Inside monitors listed on the previous page. If you are installing a Black and White
system, please refer to the QwikBus™ 4-wire Black & White Manual.
How many apartments?
QwikBus™ can run up to 120 apartments and can exceed that number if specially
designed. If you will be installing a larger system please contact Alpha Communications® for
assistance.
How many apartments will need more than 1 monitor?
An apartment can have up to 4 monitors and or audio stations that will ring when the
entry button is pressed. A fifth can be added a custom TT33-8P as opposed to the standard
TT33-2.
Will these multiple monitor apartments need intercommunication?
Intercommunication is only available using the VFS1500/ FS1500 series stations which
allow you to ring 2-4 other stations in the apartment depending on the equipment used.
How many Entrances?
Typically, QwikBus™ can have up to 8 Entrance panels. If you will be installing a larger
number of entrances please contact Alpha Communications® for design assistance.
Modular Panel?
STR™ modular panels are available in White, Titanium, and Dark Brown and are usually
used in small installations from a 1 button residential application up to multi-apartment
configurations and feature beautiful contemporary looks, illuminated buttons, and outside
weather resistance.
Stainless Steel or Brass Panel?
Alpha Communications® can custom design and build flush and surface mount entry
panels in Stainless Steel or Polished Brass with all necessary apartment button numbering
and address engraving.
How many observation cameras will be in the system?
Additional Cameras can be added in addition to the Entrance Cameras for a total of 8,
enabling the apartment monitors to view the various feeds on demand.
What type of Inside stations will you use?
Although all the compatible stations connect the same way, each model does have
certain capabilities and advantages depending on the needs of the tenant and can be
exchanged for another unit at anytime if necessary by simply installing the 2 wires and
reprogramming the system to recognize the unit.
2
Are you running new wire or using existing wire from a previous system?
Although digital systems are fairly forgiving in wiring requirements, they are still
susceptible to RFI from unusually strong nearby transmitters, EMI from electrical lines
running nearby, or existing wiring that is not twisted, in poor condition, or not a suitable
gauge. Please refer to the wiring thickness chart below to determine the minimum
recommended wire gauge needed. If the existing wiring is more than 12 years old, has
deteriorating insulation, questionable splice connections, corrosion, or is not configured as
twisted pair wiring, it is highly recommended that new wire be run.
To reduce the risk of interference problems:








Always use a single twisted pair wire for the two wire BUS line.
Do NOT double wires to increase effective wire diameter. This will cause interference
problems.
Do NOT install any unused additional wires with open ends.
Never connect the shield from a cable, or connect the shield from one cable to
another.
Use a separate cable to the door strike from the SP333.
Only use a 12VAC door strike or 12VAC relay with less than 1 amp draw.
If it is absolutely necessary to run the door strike wiring in the same cable as the BUS
line, you must use a transient voltage suppressor at the door strike end.
Loop resistance should be less than 20 ohms.
Twisted pair is always recommended.
Cat5, Cat5E, Cat6, and the new Cat7 spec. wire is NOT recommended.
How many risers will you be using?
The recommended maximum number of monitors on a riser is 8-10 with each riser
originating from the VSP333-3 Control Unit, including from the EVB333 Amplified Splitter(s) if
your system requires them.

System Notes – 2 wire COLOR: Important Information on Monitor Riser Connections
This section discusses the proper procedure for connecting monitors on a riser.
Although a digital system is very forgiving, it is best to follow these rules during installation to
maximize performance and minimize potential problems.
Using existing wiring:
When using existing wiring there are many things that can cause problems. The first is
of course, wiring condition and gauge. Solid or stranded does not matter but a minimum of
18 gauge twisted shielded wire with the shield NOT connected together is strongly
recommended. Using any lighter gauge may result in loss of performance and/or
introduction of interference from outside power sources.
Many installers run the cable the easiest way and this, unfortunately, is usually by
running the wire in a conduit or small enclosure right along side AC power lines, near
fluorescent ballasts, or machinery. It is therefore suggested that you run your own wiring
for this job in the recommended way, and avoid wiring with unknown potential issues. If
this is not possible, it is best to advise the customer that the system may not work up to its
full potential especially with regard to video display.
Proper BUS Connections to the Monitors:
Although the polarity of the BUS connections on a monitor on a line is not important, it
is good form to reverse the connections from monitor to monitor on a BUS line to prevent
the propagation of signal distortion by putting them “out of phase” with each other. On the
picture below, note how the monitors are “reverse connected” as they go up a riser.
8
All Monitor BUS lines must be terminated with an End of Line resistor on the last
monitor in the run. This is built into each monitor and can be installed by putting a jumper
connector on J1. The location of this jumper is illustrated on Page 12. If a BUS is not
terminated properly, the electronic characteristics of the line will change resulting in signal
degradation and poor video quality.
Using EVB33 Distribution Units with BUS risers:
Always try to avoid branching or “T-Tapping” to connect monitors from a riser as this
will cause changes in the riser electronic characteristics which may cause signal
degradation and poor video quality. However, when it is necessary to “T-Tap” a line from
a BUS line, there are two important things to remember.
1. Use an EVB33 for each “T-Tap” to help minimize issues with signal propagation. This
can be done in an “in-line” method alternating polarity of the monitors, (maximum of 6
monitors or 8-10 monitors on the total riser) or in a “star” pattern with up to three monitors
on their own “sub” risers.
2. Always use the End of Line jumper at the physical end of a riser line.
Both of these items are illustrated below.
9
Dipswitch Settings – Entries & Door Strikes
The QwikBus™ system uses dipswitches for identification of Entry stations, additional
cameras, and to enter “Programming Mode”.
Entrance Panels must have a unique code so the system knows where the call is coming
from and which door to open. Dipswitches 4, 5, & 6 on the back of the Speaker/Microphone
Unit (TSMB3 (Modular style) or TT33-2 (Custom style)) assign this code as shown in the
chart below.
When a Door Strike is used, It can be connected locally to the TSMB3 (Modular style panels)
or TT33-2 (Custom style Panels) Tö terminals, or connected to the SP333 Controller at the
Tö1, Tö2, Tö3, or Tö4 terminals (number is related to the entry number). You must let the
system know which connection you will use by the position of the #3 dipswitch for each entry.
Dipswitch #3 = OFF (SP333) or ON (TSMB3 or TT33-2). The entries DO NOT have to be set
alike.

Entrance Panel Cameras
When using a Modular system, The Modular Camera (KMBC3*) is automatically identified by
being connected directly to the TT33-2 and takes the same Entrance number (1-8) of the
TT33-2.
When using a Custom Panel with a TT33-2 Speaker/Microphone/Controller, You can use
either a pinhole or CCTV type analog camera with it’s own power supply for system video
input. This camera will connect by coax to the KBS3-2 which is automatically identified by
being connected directly to the TT33-2 and takes the same Entrance number (1-8) of the
TT33-2 using dipswitches 4, 5 and 6.
Using analog cameras as add on observation cameras to the system.
You can add CCTV type cameras to the system that are not related to an entrance
panel to allow for observation of other areas using the KBS3-2.
As an example you could have 2 entries to the building using Camera #1 & #2, and use 3
observation cameras set as camera #3, #4, & #5. When a visitor rings from Entrance #1,
camera #1 will come on the monitor to display the visitor, but the resident can also cycle
through all five cameras by pressing the
button.
When using any other camera(s) the KBS3-2 module must be used. This module has two
functions:
1. Converts the analog camera video signal to a digital signal that is used by the
QwikBus™ system. The analog signal is fed into this module from any pinhole or
CCTV type camera by a standard RG59 or RG6 coax and sends the converted to
digital signal out through the BUS connections to the system.
2. Establishes a Camera number for identification. If this camera is addressed as # 2 for
example, This KBS3-2 would be set to #2 using the dipswitches 4,5,&6 (7 is not used).
The 8 combinations are shown below.
NOTE: When using a Coaxial cable into a KBS3-2, ALWAYS connect a 75Ω (for RG-59) or
50 Ω (for RG-6) End-of-Line resistor between the coax center lead terminal and the (-)
terminal on the KBS3-2. Failure to do this may cause degradation of the video signal.
11
BUS End-of-Line Resistors – Jumper Locations
For proper system operation, the last video
monitor on a BUS riser as well as the last
camera on a run must have an End-of-Line
Resistors.
These resistors are built in to the printed
circuit boards and can be connected by
installing the jumper on the two pins labeled
J1.
Usually these jumpers are supplied on all the
monitors and camera boards and must be
removed if the unit is not the last camera or
monitor connected to the BUS line.
If there is only one camera used or one
monitor used, the End-of-Line resistors must
still be used.
The Chart to the left shows the locations of
the J1 pins on the different circuit boards.
NOTE: Do not confuse this End-of-Line Resistor with the End-of Line resistor required at the
end of a coax cable entering the KBS3-2. See page 9 for more information.
12
The Matrix – Wiring Pushbuttons to the TT33-2
When using an STR™ Modular Button assembly, the system can
read which switch is being pressed by electronics built into the
switches.
In the case of a Custom Panel, these electronics are built into the
TT33-2 and you must run wires to assign each button to a position
in a matrix.

The chart to the left shows an example of how a 15 button
panel could be connected using combinations of letters and
numbers to give each button a unique identification in the
electronic matrix.
As long as each button is connected to a unique combination
of one letter and one number then the system will be able to
assign addresses to each button.
Using the matrix on the TT33-2 module, you can get 4x6 (24)
unique combinations. One of these combinations (DL) can be
used for special functions, so you can have up to a total of 23
or 24 apartments using the TT33-2 alone. If your system has
more apartments you may add the following parts (one for
each entry) which will extend the matrix by giving you more
numeric connections. Please refer to the chart below.

The IC2 Database Chip
The QwikBus™ system has 8 pin nonvolatile IC chips located on the back of each TSMB3
Speaker Microphone Module (in the Modular style Entry Panels) or TT33-2 Speaker
Microphone Module (in the Custom style Entry Panels). Each unit has this chip which
maintains the programming for that specific entry.
If you have to replace a TSMB3 or TT33-2 unit, you can remove
the IC2 from the old unit and install it into the new unit so you do
not have to reprogram that entrance. When doing this
replacement, be sure to install it in the correct polarity indicated
by the mark on the chip.
