1.1
Introducing the TX3 Suite
The TX3 product suite consists of the Telephone Access, Card Access and Touch
Screen systems, and the Configurator software. The Telephone and Card Access
Systems are the traditional keypad and card access type of entry systems.
The Mircom Touch Screen (also referred to as Touch Screen) is part of the
Mircom suite of products that provide building ready monitoring, control and
software management solutions for use in the high end multi-tenant residential
market.
The Touch Screen system addresses the need within today’s multi-tenant
residential market for an easy-to-use tenant access system and an easy-to-use
administrator configuration utility. Touch Screen creates an aesthetically
pleasing high quality personalized communication system between residents and
their visitors in a multi-unit dwelling establishment.
1.1.1
Configurator Software
The Configurator is a PC based user friendly graphical application that lets you
configure the Telephone Access, Card Access and Touch Screen Systems.
On the Touch Screen system the Configurator is part of the administrator
interface.
This manual provides the administrator with information about the use and
configuration of the TX3 product suite, and explains how to configure various
components for a new system, including the modification of an existing system.
This manual describes the operation and configuration for the following TX3
Telephone Access and Card Access Systems:
1.1.2
•
TX3-120/200-4 (4x20 LCD)
•
TX3-1000-4 (4x20 LCD)

TX3-CX Dual Card Reader
ADC and NSL Capability
Touch Screen and the Telephone Access System support full ADC and NSL
telephone connectivity for a single panel or a networked system of panels. A
single panel supports up to five ADC and/or NSL telephone lines.
Version 2.4
LT-995
TX3 Configuration and Administrator Manual

Welcome
An ADC connection requires a dedicated subscriber telephone line service
connected to an outside telephone line. This connection lets the visitor call the
tenant and access their voice mail.
An NSL type connection uses the existing building telephone lines for
communication and does not require an outside telephone line. The NSL units
intercept all telephone lines into the building’s suites and communicate directly
to the resident phone. This connection lets the visitor call the tenant and access
their voice mail and call waiting.
1.1.3
Other Controllers
Mircom controllers, such as the Card Access controller, may be networked with
the TX3 system through a peer-to-peer RS-485 network.

Touch Screen Applications
The Touch Screen is a user friendly graphical application that provides one-toone customization of tenant access by enhancing the building entry experience
and creating a truly personalized kiosk session. The Touch Screen graphical
interface includes the ability to provide tenants and guests with specific
advertisements and messages, making it an extremely valuable marketing and
notification tool.
As part of Mircom’s design theme and strategy for the high rise building market,
a visitor at the kiosk sees a series of institution defined advertisement and
promotional messages. These messages form the basis for the personalized
visitor session.
The entire building experience is personalized at the kiosk based on preferences
and marketing campaigns defined by the building management. The
personalization includes:
•
Setting eligible functions and tenant accessibility codes
•
Permitting user access and options
•
Changing the look and feel of the user interface
The Touch Screen provides a way for the institution to easily administer the kiosk
configuration session with the Mircom Touch Screen, and implement tenant
profile updates.
For the administrator, the Touch Screen provides an integrated and
comprehensive database facility to gather, configure and manage various system
components and parameters. This central database manages tenant and system
data, and facilitates the administrator in implementing updates to the tenant
registry.

Administrator’s Responsibilities
The software lets you configure and monitor activities of all controllers
connected to the TX3 network. The administrator is responsible for the
configuration of the TX3 system, Touch Screen, Configurator and all of the
related components.
When logged in as an administrator all of the following configurable functions
are available:

User interface appearance
•
Advertisement content
•
Support for panel functionality with the capability to interface to other
devices - the software fully integrates with the TX3 line of products
The administrator accesses the administrator mode from the Kiosk or computer
and has full rights to every function within the software. The administrator
performs many of the administrative tasks required for installing and managing
the software, including assigning permissions for each level of user. Touch
Screen kiosk personalization depends on preferences defined by the building
management. Additional responsibilities may be provided by the building
manager.
The Configurator software has five password protected user levels. The system
administrator accesses and configures all panels and devices connected to the
panels, and sets up user levels. Users are limited to specific responsibilities such
as adding or removing resident names or defining schedules.
The administrator is responsible for:
1.5
•
modifying user interface appearance

Physical Architecture
The Configurator lets you connect a single panel or an entire network of panels,
displaying images of every panel on your site in the Job tree.
You are able to assign additional panels using the Touch Screen or Configurator
interface to recognize and receive data from other panels on your network.

The modular architecture of the TX3 system allows for a flexible, scalable and
customized application, and is determined by the number of building access
points, expected traffic, number of residents, volume of communications,
concurrent connections and kiosk placement.

of residents, volume of transactions, concurrent connections and network
capacity. The components of TX3 system, networked together, allows
communication and interaction with the building infrastructure.
By default, Touch Screen is configured with the Telephone Access System Panel.

Getting Started
2.1
PC System Requirements
On the Touch Screen the Configurator is part of the system and does not require
additional software.
For the PC based Configurator the minimum system requirements are as follows:
2.2
•
Windows 7 (32 bit)
•
Windows XP SP2/ Vista (32 bit)
•
512 RAM
•
1 GHZ CPU
•
600M disk space
•
1 USB port
Installation
The Configurator installation is a fully automated process that is launched from
the Configurator installation CD.
To install the Configurator
1.
2.3
From the CD root directory run setup.exe and follow the instructions.
Once completed the TX3 Configurator icon appears on the desktop.
Logging into Administrator Mode
Logging into the Telephone Access and Card Access Systems requires a
connection to the PC. The PC connects to the controller board using a USB cable
from the computer to the TX3 controller board.
As an alternative, the PC also connects to the controller board modem. The TX3
system is compatible with the TrendNet TFM-560U High Speed USB 2.0 Fax
Modem, the Hiro H50113 56K V.92 USB Fax Modem, and the StarTech
USB56KEM2 56k V.92 USB Fax Modem.
On the Touch Screen system the Configurator is part of the administrator
interface and does not require a connection to a PC based Configurator. Logging
in is done through the Touch Screen interface. An alternative is to use the Remote
Access facility to establish a remote connection to the Touch Screen. See
paragraph 2.12.
When you start Touch Screen for the first time, it starts in user mode. You must
place it in administrator mode to set the application appearance and configure the
panel parameters, connections and passwords.

Assigning User Privileges is a Configurator feature that lets you define different
user levels. Once users are defined, system administrators can further organize
them to effectively manage the building.
The system administrator assigns privileges to a particular subordinating level of
user using the User Management window. Only the system administrator is able
to set user levels, add or remove various system users, reset their passwords and
modify access rights.
The various user levels consist of the following:
Operator. An operator has read access only. An operator can monitor live
events and accept access point requests.
User. A user has all of the rights of the operator plus additional reading and
writing card and resident records privileges.
Advanced User. An advanced user has all of the rights of user plus the ability to
read and write schedules, holidays and access levels.

Job Tree
The Job tree lists all networked components, such the Telephone Access and
Card Access Systems, and provides a list of options to let you add, modify and
delete these configurable components and their characteristics. Job is the
industry-standard term for this type of system.
The Configurator uses a centralized approach to continuously assess the state of
every panel and connected components. This avoids the need for continuous
administrator supervision and facilitates the task of complex configuration of
every system component. The Job tree further simplifies configuration by
providing an overview of the system by listing each configurable item.
Start the configuration by getting familiar with all of the existing networked
components. Selecting a Job tree node displays its corresponding details on the
Right Pane.

individual changes. For example, modifying a resident record sends only that
record to the panel.
Sending a Job to a single panel sends all of the configuration information to that
panel including any modifications.
The Configurator does not send the entire configuration to a panel unless:
•
the user has modified the configuration from the front panel or

Calibrating the Touch Screen
The TX3 Touch Screen does not require calibration for the initial setup.
However, over time and with continued use it may require re-calibration. The

PenMount. Calibration cannot be performed remotely and must be performed
locally at each terminal. This section explains how to calibrate the Touch Screen
using the PenMount software.
Entering the PenMount Control Panel
1.
From the TX3 Touch software log in as administrator.
2.
From the menu bar select File > Exit to Windows. Press Yes to
confirm.

Configuring Inputs
Inputs 1 to 5 are assigned specific functions. Inputs 1 to 3 have pre-defined
functions and connect to specific devices. Inputs 4 and 5 are general purpose
inputs that can be manually assigned (correlated) to activate a general purpose
output.
The application autosenses the on/off status of connected components. In order
to accurately monitor the functional state of the panel inputs, you must first
define the electrical circuit characteristics of the input.
5.2.1
Inputs 1 to 5
Inputs 1 to 5 are designated as follows:
Input 1. Input 1 connects to the Postal Lock. Activation of this input unlocks the
main door and starts the main door timer. The door locks when the timer expires
or when the door sense input is activated. Daily usage is limited according to a
pre-defined amount. Any attempt to use the postal lock beyond this point causes
a warning message to appear and the system to return to normal operation.
Input 1 can also, when configured, activate a general purpose output to perform
any required function.
Input 2. Input 2 connects to the fire alarm panel and receives fire notification.
Activation of this input unlocks the main and auxiliary doors. These outputs are
active as long as the fire panel input is active. Input 2 can also, when configured,
activate a general purpose output to perform any required function.
Input 3. Input 3 connects to the door sense switch. Unlocking the main door
activates the main door open timer. Activation of the Main Door Sense locks the
main door and resets the main door open timer. This function is typically used to
prevent ‘tailgating’. Input 3 can also, when configured, activate a general
purpose output to perform any required function.
Input 4. Input 4 is a general purpose input that, when configured, activates a
general purpose output to perform any required function.

Configuring Inputs
In order to accurately monitor the functional state of the panel inputs, you must
first define the electrical circuit characteristics of the input (active state and
circuit supervision). For a detailed description of the circuit characteristics see
LT-980 TX3-CX Card Access System Installation and Operation Manual.
Each card access controller has eight inputs that can be configured to
accommodate specific events for the following controller functions:
Door sense for reader A or B. An input assigned this function senses if a door is
opened or closed.
Request to exit for reader A or B. An input assigned this function sends a signal
to the controller that a request to exit has been made.
General purpose function. An input assigned this function can activate a
general purpose output to perform any required function or turn on or off the high
security mode.

Whenever you configure an output, the active state of the output must be defined
as a function of the device it attaches. When the device is energized it is
considered to be active. When the device is de-energized it is considered to be
inactive.
Each card access controller has eight outputs that can be configured to
accommodate specific actions for the following controller functions:
Lock for reader A or B. This output is assigned to either reader A or B to unlock
the main door. When access is granted at the designated reader, this output

Configuring Access levels
Creating an access level lets you define where and when to use a card, and set
elevator usage if elevator controls are used. Access levels are assigned to cards to
help the administrator keep track of access privileges (for a description of how to
assign an access level to a card see section 6.5).
A maximum of 32 access levels are defined for each controller. A schedule is
associated with each access level for all the access points on the controller as
indicated by the following example.
Access level ID = 1
•
for reader A schedule = Always
•
for reader B schedule = Never
Access level ID = 2
•
for reader A schedule = Office hours
•
for reader B schedule = Always
If a card is assigned an access level 1 it means the user has access to reader A at all
times but will not have access to reader B at any time.
If a card is assigned an access level 2 it means the user has access to reader A
during the office hours and will have access to reader B all the time.
Access Levels appear in the Job tree with the addition of the first Card Access
System panel. Selecting Access Levels from the Job tree displays all currently
configured access levels and their corresponding details in the Access Level
Configuration window in the Right Pane.
