obstruction detection.
Setting the dial to “0” will require the least
amount of force to activate;
Setting the dial to “100” will require the
maximum amount of force to activate.
UL325 standard requires an audio
alarm to go off after two consecutive
entrapment events sensed by the
Inherent Entrapment Protection of the
Gate Operator.
When the Obstruction Sensor detects
an obstruction it will:
1. Stop the gate’s movement and reverse
it momentarily.
2. Bring the gate to a resting position.
3. Disable the Hold Open Timer feature
until the Gate Operator receives a new
command.
If second obstruction is detected before
the gate reaches either limit it will:
1. Stop the gate’s movement.
2. Disable the Gate Operator.
3. Sound the UL Alarm
4. A STOP command must be provided
to disable the alarm and continue
operation.
The audio alarm will sound for a period
of 5 minutes or until the “Stop” Button
or “Alarm Reset” Button is pressed. See
page 12 for more information.
! TECHNICAL TIP: The Status LED for the
“ODS” will indicate the following
when it has been triggered.
A. Solid: Obstruction.
Detected a sudden or abrupt increase
in gate resistance.
B. Flashing: Overload.
Detected a more subtle, but sustained
increase in gate resistance.

Guidelines for Loop Installation
1. Prevent sharp corners in the geometry of the loop sensor.
2. Install the appropriate number of turns for your loop geometry based on the loop
perimeter. Use Table C (below) as a guide.
3. Use XLP (cross-linked-polyethylene) type of wire. This wire reduces the effects
of moisture and other environmental events in altering the functionality of the
vehicular loop detector.
4.Twist the lead wire at least 6 turns per foot.
5. Use BACKER-ROD to minimize damage to the loop detector wire prior to using the
sealant.
6.Place the loop detector wire and adjust the sensitivity of the vehicular loop
detector unit in a way to minimize the effects of the gate over the loop detector
wire.
! IMPORTANT! Some of the following parameters may affect the proper
functionality of the vehicular loop detector.
Consult the manufacturer of the vehicular loop detector and/or loop wire.
• Gate size
• Number of turns in the loop sensor wire
• Distance of the loop sensor wire to the gate at either at the open or close position

Relays In General
NOTE: Viking Access Systems does not provided the external safety devices and access
controls. These items can be purchases from your dealer or distributor.
In General
Glossary of Terms
In regards to the Viking control board,
all external safety devices and access
controls contain, and are, simple relays
that provide an input to the Viking
control board when the device is
activated.
1. Terminal: Wire Connections.
2. Input Terminal: On the Viking
control board, the terminal which is
labeled for a specific command (ReOpen, Exit, Radio, etc.). The N.O.
contact from the access control
device is to be connected to the Input
Terminal.
3. Terminal Block: On the Viking
control board, a removable block
containing multiple terminals.
4. Relay: The component of an access
control or safety device that provides
an input or command to the Viking
control board.
5. “C” Relay Common Terminal: This is
the relay terminal that makes contact
(a short) to the N.O. terminal when the
device is activated. Always wire this
relay terminal to any “GND” terminal at
the control board.
6. “N.O.” Relay Normally Open
Terminal: The relay terminal that has
an open contact to “C” while the relay
is not activated, and a closed contact
when the relay is activated. Almost
always wire this relay terminal to an
“Input Terminal” at the control board,
7. “N.C.” Relay Normally Closed
Terminal: The relay terminal that has
a closed contact to “C” while the relay
is not activated, and an open contact
when the relay is activated. This
terminal is rarely used.
8. Relay Coil: Contains the terminals
that provide power at the relay.
9. “ + ” Relay Positive Terminal: The
positive power pole for the relay coil.
Always wire this relay terminal to any
“+28v” terminal at the control board.
10.“ – ” Relay Negative Terminal: The
negative power pole for the relay coil.
Always wire this relay terminal to any
“GND” terminal at the control board.
When these devices are activated,
their internal relays create a contact,
or short, between the “C” and “N.O.”
terminals. This contact is what provides
the command to the Viking control
board.
! TECHNICAL TIP: Viking uses the
Normally Open “N.O.” contact from the
device, excluding “fail-safe” type photo
beams. In such instances, the Normally
Closed “N.C .” will be used instead.
