Note: Gatestation are supplied separately to handsets as each application may require a different number
or type of handsets.
The Zartek Wireless Multi Intercom System is newly developed and three years of R&D in the making.
It is fully approved by ICASA. Applications for this system include houses, offices, cottages, security
access points etc.
There are 2 buttons which can be linked to 2 separate channels. Only the selected houses handset will
ring and communication is established by the tenant pressing the PTT button on the handset.
Communication is simplex so only one person can speak at a time but the gatestation’s microphone is
always active so the visitor does not have to press any key to speak. The inside handset can enter into
the conversation at any time by pressing a PTT button. Indicator LED lights on the gatestation will
show the visitor when to talk and when to listen.
There are 2 triggers that can be activated from the handset for opening a motorized gate or striker lock.
Multiple handsets can be added for the same house to have internal communication only when
handsets are on the same code. Range is terrain dependant and is 100m in built-up areas and 350m in
more open areas. The external antenna is mounted as high as possible for improved coverage and
Note: This Installers manual is intended to explain programming and installation, please refer to the
User’s manual for operating instructions.
Setup Procedure:
1) Open screws of cover plate using supplied special tool to locate dip switches, pairing button and
battery backup up connector.
2) Connect battery and charge gatestation and handsets for at least 2 hours before programming and
3) Pair handsets with gatestation, see procedure below.
4) Place gatestation near gate (wall or gooseneck). Connect external antenna to gatestation and
mount temporarily for testing.
5) Do range tests to furthest point of usage. Test handset audio and gate triggering in actual house
or unit. Press button on gatestation and answer on handset.
6) Place antenna higher or purchase booster handsets (ZA-613-E) if more range is required.
7) If range test is successful, pair other handsets.
8) Once all paired, test communication from each handset.
9) Mount gatestation and external antenna. Connect to fixed power and gate controller board.
10) Place each handset in unit and do final communications test.
Use only the supplied 12v DC supply. It is a switching power supply which has more stable voltage
output than an AC adapter. Connect 12v wires to connection block at the back of the intercom. There is
no polarity needed. Do not use any other supply such as 12v battery back-up systems. Insert the Li-ion
battery connector into the Li-ion battery socket (refer to Figure above) and connect the power supply.
The battery will charge when connected to 12v DC.
Use battery power for programming and range testing.
In case the gate station is not used for a long period of time, it is recommended to disconnect the battery
connector from the socket, otherwise the Li battery will run flat. In case of power outage, the battery
will last for 4-5 hours under normal usage.
Programming can only be done manually and not via a PC. Manual programming is used to pair
handsets to the gate station whereby a 3 digit code (001 or 002) is then assigned to a handset. First select
ID code and operating channel using dip switches and then pair the handset using the pairing button.
Button Definition:
Button 1 is used to call House Name 1 , Handsets with 001 code
Button 2 is used to call House Name 2 , Handsets with 002 code
Dip switches:
Dip switch 1 & 2 are used to set the ID code. ID code is used to avoid interference from other systems
and to provide security with gate opening. There are 4 different ID codes to select

002 after a few seconds and 2 beeps will be heard on the gate station. Disconnect power
supply and reconnect again, the two button LEDs will go off, indicating the gate station is
now under normal operation mode.
Range and External antenna
The gatestation has been designed to be used with an external antenna. Typical range with the antenna
mounted is 100m in built-up areas and 350m in more open areas. Heavily built up areas will affect the
range significantly and possible reduce maximum range to less than 100m. Further range is always
possible with higher placing of the antenna or by using the handset with external antenna.
Place the external antenna in a vertical orientation on top of poles, walls or a roof. It is important to
place the antenna at least 1m away from trees, metal or concrete. If the antenna must be placed against a
wall or building its range will be further in front of the building but low behind the structure.
The antenna mount uses a “L” bracket and includes plugs and screws. Connect the cable at the back of
gatestation to the antenna cable and ensure that the ends are fitted tightly. Extra 3m or 6m lengths of
cable are available although it is advised not to exceed the length by 12m as power will be lost due to
cable losses.
Booster handset
The ZA613 handset has an internal antenna and is therefore portable. Clarity and signal quality will be
affected if there are many obstructions between the house and the gate such as trees, walls or buildings.
It is then advisable to use a booster handset ZA613-E where a fixed external antenna with 6m of cable is
permanently connected directly to the handset. Better audio and reception will be achieved by mounting
the antenna outside the building and at some height so that there is clearer line-of-sight to the gate
stations antenna.
Gate Triggering
The gatestation has 2 separate triggers used to opening/closing gates. Both gates can be triggered from
the handset. During a call the door lock button is pressed once to activate and under standby the buttons
must be pressed in for 3 seconds in order to trigger.
The contacts are located at the back of the intercom. Lock A is a 1amp pulse output of the 12V supply.
This is used to trigger strike locks such as used for pedestrian gates. If Lock A is used to trigger a
standard gate motor it is essential to use the supplied relay board as shown in the figure below.
Lock B is a 300mA dry contact which is normally open. Once the Lock B trigger is activated the pins of
Lock B will connect and make a short circuit and close. This connection can be connected directly to the
gate controller board of a gate motor. It is advisable to also use a relay board for trigger B to isolate the
gatestation from power surges etc. The connection is different as the power wires to the relay should be
connected in series with the trigger B contacts.
A standard receiver can also be connected on the gate controller board in parallel with the gatestation if
remotes are required.

2. Select a location near your door entrance against a wall. The gatestation can be mounted against a
gooseneck and be covered with a metal housing as the antenna is external and range will not be
3. It is advised that the intercom is not installed in the vicinity of other electronic devices that may
reduce the operating range such as electric fences, cameras etc.
4. Use the supplied self tap crews to fix the mounting bracket onto the wall. The supplied paper mask
at the end of this manual can be helpful in drilling the correct position of holes.
5. Align the two rivets on the mounting bracket with the holes of the metal hangers on the back of the
caller unit, make contact and slide the unit upward. Screw in the supplied machine screw to fix the
caller unit in position.
The caller unit is housed in a high impact ABS/PC cabinet strengthened by an aluminum alloy front
cover to achieve professional grade ruggedness required in most outdoor application. Rubber gaskets
seals around all joints and terminals keep out dust, rain, snow and spray, assuring years of reliable
operation even in harsh environment. The unit meets to IP-54 standard and can operate from -30°C to
Important terms
OPERATING CHANNEL: There are 4 channels to select from as there are 4 different frequencies. If
there is interference on one channel it is recommended changing the channel. Note all the handsets have
to be set on the same channel.
3 DIGIT CODE: This is a number consisting of 3 digits such as 001, 002 etc assigned for each house.
All handsets with same code will ring simultaneously when called from the gate station and the first
handset to answer will establish communication. Handsets with the same code can intercommunicate
using the handset talk button similar to that used in two-way radio.
PAIRING: Each handset must be linked to the gatestation. Pairing is where the handset learns the unique
code from the gatestation.
PTT: Push-To-Talk is the method for conducting a conversation with a simplex device. The resident can
answer calls and reply by pressing the PTT button on the handset. Press and hold down the PTT button
when speaking into the microphone.
ID CODE: There are 4 different ID codes which can be selected. ID code is used to avoid interference
from other systems and to provide further security with gate opening.
