Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the AC-115
single door self contained access
controller and AC-115 PC software.
The AC-115 is an advanced single door
controller capable of being networked
with up to seven more AC-115s.
A single AC-115 can be used without
PC Software. Programming the AC-115
without the PC software (local
programming) is accomplished via the
AC-115’s membrane keypad. However
there are many features that can only be
set by the AC-115 PC software.
The PC software must be used when
more than one AC-115 is joined in a
network of doors.
This manual explains how to install and
use the AC-115 PC software with one
or more doors.
In this section you will learn how to
use this manual, how to choose the
right operating system and the
necessary hardware required to use
your AC-115 system.

Selecting the right Operating System
The AC-115 software will function in English on any PC using the following
Operating Systems:
! Windows® 95/98/ME
! Windows® NT/2000
!
There are however some special considerations to take into account when using
the AC-115 multi-language support feature. See the section below.
Selecting the right Operating System for your language.
The AC-115 currently supports the following languages.
! English
! French
! German
! Hebrew
! Italian
! Russian
! Spanish
The English version of the above operating systems will all allow all western
scripts such as English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish to function by
default.
!
For non-western scripts such as Hebrew or Russian you must use the Windows®
95/98/Me/NT that is specific to that region of that language. For example to
view Russian text you must have the Russian version of Windows ®
95/98/Me/NT.
If you are using Windows® 2000 you do not have to purchase the Russian
version, as Windows® 2000 already has multi-language support. You must still
configure Windows® 2000 to display the characters correctly and to function with
your keyboard. For more information about setting up Windows® 2000 for your
language see, Appendix A.

Setting up Door Numbers for multi-door AC-115 network
When attaching more than one AC-115 to build a multi-door network it is very
important to assign unique Door Numbers to each AC-115 in the network.
The PC requires the Door Number in order to correctly identify the hardware
when they communicate through the serial port. You will need to remember the
Door Numbers you assign when you are setting up the software.
Door Numbers can only be programmed from the 3x4 matrix keypad of the
AC-115 controller and not from the PC. This is called “local programming”.
Local programming is covered in extensive detail in the AC-115 Hardware
Installation and Users Guide.
First a quick introduction of the AC-115 local programming interface.
There are two status LED’s on the AC-115

window will appear informing you of the connection problem.
This means that you will have to change
your COM port or to make the COM port
available by quitting/uninstalling the
software that is keeping the COM port
busy. Click the cancel button.
The software will then detect that you have no doors installed. The software will
now operate in offline mode. You will learn more about offline mode later.

Whenever any doors are enabled/disabled, door or user settings are changed in
the PC software, the settings will not take effect until the settings are downloaded
from the PC to the AC-115 hardware in the AC-115 network.
If settings are changed the software will store these changes. If the user makes
changes to the settings and exits the software without downloading the settings to
the AC-115 hardware in the AC-115 network, the software will still save the
changed settings allowing the user to download the settings to the AC-115
network later.

button to update
changed settings to the
installed doors in the
network.
The PC Software will then proceed
to download the changed settings to
the controllers in the network
When the PC software is in Offline Mode the Download button in the toolbar is
greyed out. To enable Downloading, the PC software must first be placed into
Online Mode.
When installing a new Door the first download will take longer as all the settings
in the new Door will be updated. Downloading to existing doors is very fast as
only the changed settings are sent to the Door.
Now that you have Downloaded your settings to the installed doors, it is time to
test your network for the first time.
- 33 -
Testing your network for the first time
You have now setup your door settings in the PC software and have downloaded
the settings to your controllers. The test will make sure that the controllers in the
network are communicating properly and that the readers attached to them are
also working correctly. This is done by viewing the Online Window while
entering the Employee Codes at each of the In & Out Readers attached to the
controllers in the network.
!
There are two conditions that need to be met before you can start testing.
1) All the doors you want to test must have Online Enabled active in their door
properties. If Online Enabled is not active in a door, then the status of that
door will not appear in the Online Window.
2) You must be in Online Mode in order to access the Online Window. If the
Online button in the tool bar is greyed out, it means that you are not in
Online Mode.
If your system meets the above conditions you can begin to follow the
instructions below.
1
From the Main
window click the
Online button on the
tool bar.
2
You will see the Online
window.

2
If there are any events
in the network such as
a Prox card being read,
it will be seen in the
Online Window.
Test each of the readers in your system, if it is a Prox Reader apply any
compatible Prox Card, if it is a Keypad Reader enter any Keypad Code. If it is
any other reader, activate the Reader so that the ID will be sent to the controller
over the 26-Bit Wiegand Reader’s output.
- 34 -
Below is an example of what your Online Window should look like after you
have created a few events by activating all the readers in your network.
In this example there are
4 controllers in the AC115 network.
All the readers were
tested for each of the
controllers on the
network.
If all the readers show up on your list then the readers and controllers are
functioning normally. In the example provided above the network is functioning
normally.
If any of the readers attached to the controller do not show up on the list, then test
the reader again, if it is still not on the list, the reader is most likely not connected
properly, malfunctioning, or may not be 26-Bit Wiegand compatible.

When should the Event History be uploaded?
!
Each AC-115 controller can store up to 2000 events in its internal memory. The
internal memory of the controller is cleared each time it uploads its event history
to the PC using the AC-115 PC software.
If the event history stored within an AC-115 controller’s internal memory is not
uploaded the internal memory will eventually become full. When the controllers
internal memory is full and new events occur, the oldest event in the internal
memory is deleted and the new event is stored in its place. This is called Event
Overflow.
When Event Overflow occurs, some events are lost due to a lack of internal
memory in the AC-115 controller. The lost data will never appear in the PC
software’s database and will therefore not appear in any of the reports.
In order to prevent Event Overflow each controller in your AC-115 must have its
event history uploaded to the PC software’s database periodically.
There are two methods to upload the event history from the AC-115 controllers in
your network, manual and automatic uploading.
Manual or Automatic Uploading?
Manual Uploading has been designed for AC-115 networks that do not have a lot
of event traffic and will therefor not reach an Event Overflow condition quickly.
These networks usually do not have a dedicated PC that can stay online and
connected with the AC-115 network. A user must periodically initiate the Event
History upload sequence from the PC.
Automatic Uploading has been designed for AC-115 networks that have a lot of
event traffic. This is where an AC-115 can achieve an Event Overflow quickly.
Each AC-115 in the network can be programmed to upload its Event History
periodically. Automatic Uploading requires that your PC is connected to the AC115 network and online at all times waiting to receive the Event History from the
controllers.
On the following pages you will learn how to manually and automatically upload
the event history from the controllers in your AC-115 network.
- 52 -
Uploading Event History Manually
You can manually upload the event history from all the AC-115 controllers in the
network at the same time or you can specifically select the Door Numbers
belonging to the AC-115 controllers that you wish to upload data from.

How often you should upload your AC-115’s Event History depends on how
busy the controller is. You must make sure that the controller’s internal memory
does not exceed 2000 events to prevent Event Overflow.
Click “OK”. You have now learned how to setup an AC-115 to automatically
upload its event history.
- 54 -
Introduction to Reports
The AC-115 PC Software can generate three types of reports; Movement, Door
and Interactive Reports. In this section you learn about these reports and in the
following sections you will learn how to generate each of them.
Movement Report
The Movement Report shows all the Lock Strike activation events that occurred
due to an entry of a valid employee code. Movement Reports are available in two
formats; sorted by door number and sorted by employee. Both formats lists the
date, time, employee’s full name, door number, and the reader location (In
Reader or Out Reader) of each Lock Strike activation event between a selectable
range of dates.
Door Report
The Door Report enables you to view all or a selectable set of events that
occurred at all or a selectable set of doors.
Interactive Report
The Interactive Report is used to help do regular maintenance of Employees and
door access rights. Interactive Reports are available in two formats; sorted by
door number and sorted by employees.
The report sorted by door number enables you to clearly see who has rights to
each of the doors in the network. The report sorted by employees enables you to
clearly see each employee’s door rights.

Setting up your language in Windows 2000
The AC-115 software currently supports the following languages.
! English
! French
! German
! Hebrew
! Italian
! Russian
! Spanish
The following is a step by step example showing how to change the language
from English to Russian. The same steps can be used to change languages to any
of the available languages.
STEP 1
Try to change languages within the AC-115 software
a) Click on the “Settings” button on the program tool bar.
b) Click the tab marked “Options”.
c) Click on the button marked “Language”.
You should see the following if you are running the English version of Windows ®
2000.
Notice that Hebrew and Russian are missing from
this list. This is because Windows® 2000 language
is set to English (United States).
The English alphabet is not compatible with the
Hebrew or Russian alphabet so Hebrew and
Russian are not shown on the list.
To view Russian text for instance we must change
the configuration of the default local language into
“Cyrillic” first.
If you see the language of your choice, select the language from the list and click
the OK button. If you do not see the language of your choice continue to STEP 2
on the next page.

Using the MD-08
The MD-08 is a 26-Bit Wiegand to RS485 converter. It allows you to connect a
26-Bit Wiegand Reader directly to one of your PC’s COM ports. This permits
you to program Employee and System Codes without being in On-line Mode.
This provides the convenience of not being required to use a reader attached to a
controller in the network when setting Employee and System Codes.
Instead, you may program Employee and System Codes using a Reader attached
to the MD-08. You could even pre-program all the Employee and System Codes
for a network in your office prior to departing to the site of the AC-115 network
you are installing or maintaining.
There are three ways to attach 26-Bit Wiegand readers to the MD-08.
