Overview
apC/L Basics
The apC/L is housed in a 16 AWG metal wall-mounted cabinet which has
tamper switches on the front and rear, and can be used in a wide variety of
configurations. The apC/L has two reader ports, capable of handling a
maximum of two readers and two relay outputs. In the basic
configuration, the apC/L’s two card readers are wired in a multidrop
configuration. The panel’s static RAM consumes minimal power for
storing memory and data.
The apC/L’s basic memory capacity is 256K of RAM expandable to
512K. Eight supervised inputs are available on each Input Module; the
apC/L can support a maximum of four Input Modules. Eight additional
relays are available on each Output Module; the apC/L supports a
maximum of four Output modules. While the apC/L does not have any
onboard supervised inputs, supervised input support exists on the Input
Module. See Chapter 5 for a description.
The apC/L is compatible with Sensormatic systems, including the
C•CURE 1 Plus Ultra, C•CURE 750, and C•CURE 800/8000 systems.
Software-Controlled Options
The apC/L offers optional software-controlled features such as timed
activation/deactivation commands, 32-bit card numbers, elevator access,
dialup mode operation, and anti-passback control. A single apC/L can use
multiple card technologies, site codes, and company codes. The apC/L’s
full-year real time calendar/clock allows activation and deactivation of
cards on specified days. If the apC/L is configured with the optional
backup battery, the unit has a power fail input that can be configured to let
you know when the unit has lost its main source of power.
apC/L Optional Modules
The apC/L supports two optional modules that enhance the apC/L’s
capabilities:

I/8 Input Module The I/8 (input module) or board has eight
supervised inputs. Supervised inputs report on the status of the wiring
between the apC/L and an alarm device. If that wiring is cut, the system
reports an open circuit. If someone tries to jumper across the wiring
(prevent the device from reporting), the system reports a shorted circuit.
Supervised inputs can report a total of five conditions to the apC/L:
n
n
n
n
n
Short
Open Loop
Line Fault
Normal
Alert
Since a short circuit, open loop, or line fault can mask an alarm condition,
supervised inputs enhance system security.
Note
An unsupervised input does not monitor the wiring.
Unsupervised inputs can report two conditions: Normal or Alert.
The I/8 (input module) has no unsupervised inputs.
As a separate module connected to the apC/L reader bus, the I/8 provides
eight Class-A supervised inputs. A total of four I/8s (input modules) can
be connected to the apC/L, providing up to 32 Class-A supervised inputs.
A 1 K ohm resistor is factory-installed on all inputs. These resistors must
be clipped out when you use the associated input. Tolerance on states is
± 5%. The I/8 (input module) will not function until the apC/L is
configured by the host computer.
R/8 Output Module The R/8 (output module) connects to the apC/L
reader bus, and provides eight auxiliary relay outputs. Each output is rated
at 30V DC/AC at 1Amp inductive, 2Amps non-inductive. You can
connect up to four R/8s (output modules) to the apC/L, providing up to 32
auxiliary relay outputs. Note that the R/8 (output module) cannot function
until the host configures the apC/L.

Overview
Card Readers
A card reader is made up of a read head or reader electronics and a small
circuit board, called a personality board or module. The apC/L uses the
RM series personality module.
The RM module is approximately 4.5” x 3.5” (11.8 by 9 cm) and can be
installed in the reader housing or in a 6” x 4” (minimum) junction box.
Electronics for accepting either the magnetic stripe or Wiegand reader
technologies are located on the RM series personality module.
RM Series Readers
The RM series readers incorporate either magnetic stripe, Wiegand, or
proximity read head technology into the same polycarbonate all-weather
housing. Two types of proximity read heads are available as well as a
magnetic stripe (only one type of magnetic stripe is available) and a
Wiegand read head to cover any type of application.
Each reader is configured with a six position DIP switch. A 0-F rotary
switch defines the address and an onboard tamper switch protects the
electronics. See “Setting the apC/L Switches” on page 6-4 for a complete
description.
A 2-line, 16 character per line, backlit display is offered as an option with
the RM2 series (reader with keypad). Each reader provides two class A
supervised inputs on the personality module and two logic driven relay
outputs for use by ARM-1s (#131-912).
See “Setting Up a Reader” on page 4-9 for further information.
Magnetic Stripe Readers
The magnetic stripe reader is enclosed in an all weather housing with a
slot through which a magnetically coded card is passed, or “swiped.” The
RM-4 personality module decodes the data on the card and transmits it to
the apC/L for processing.
C•CURE apC/L Technical Manual
apcl.bk Page 5 Monday, May 15, 2000 3:21 PM
Card Readers
1-5
Wiegand Readers
There are three types of Wiegand card readers:
n
n
n
Swipe reader, through which a card is passed
Insertion reader, into which a card is inserted and removed
Key reader, into which a key shaped card is inserted and removed
A sensing coil inside a Wiegand reader creates a magnetic field. When the
wires inside the card interact with the magnetic field, they create low
voltage impulses in the coil. Depending on the arrangement of the wires
in the card, the voltage is either positive or negative. The personality
module translates the impulses and transmits the information to the apC/L
for processing.
Each swipe, insertion, and key Wiegand Reader has a single bi-colored
LED which indicates the status of the door. Sensormatic RM Wiegand
readers have a 3 LED display.
Proximity Readers (Also uses Wiegand format)
The proximity reader transmits a radio frequency signal. A proximity card
is a radio frequency transponder, or tag, which consists of an antenna coil,
and an integrated circuit chip encoded with a unique identification
number. When a card is passed near the reader, it energizes the card’s
antenna, causing it to send its identification number to the reader. The
card and reader do not make physical contact. LED indicators for
proximity readers vary according to manufacturer.
The Auxiliary Relay Module
The Auxiliary Relay Module, or ARM-1 (part # 131-912), is an optional
relay module that takes a logic-driven signal from the reader and drives or
switches a 12/24V relay for the door strike or for other use. The ARM-1 is
1.7” by 0.75” (4.3 by 1.91 cm) in size. It is mounted inside the protected
area no more than 25 feet (7.6 m) from the RM. The ARM-1 contains 1
Form C relay capable of driving a 30V, 2A non-inductive or 1A inductive
load.
Note
You can connect two ARM-1 modules to each RM-4 module.

communications, you can substitute the following for the cables
referenced in this manual:
n
Use Manhattan (# M63995) for 2-pair only, 24 AWG, 120 ohm, 12.5
pf/ft, with foil shield. For the apC-to-RM connection, use only one of
the pairs.
n
Use Belden 89729 for 2-pair, 24 AWG, 150 ohm, 8.8 pf/ft. Use
Belden 89182 for 1-pair 22 AWG, 100 ohm, 12.95 pf/ft., with foil
shield. These two cables are also rated for underground burial.

apC/L Event and Card Storage
2-5
apC/L Event and Card Storage
Event storage space in the apC/L’s memory is automatically adjusted
according to the space required for storing cardholder information.
Increasing the number of records stored decreases the number of events
(transactions) that the memory can hold. Adding optional software
features, such as elevator control (10 bytes), anti-passback (4 bytes)
activation and expiration dates (4 bytes each), and 32-bit card records
reduces cardholder counts and event storage space. Use the following
formula to estimate the number of cards that can be supported for a given
memory size.
( memory_size – 64 ) × 1024 – ( events × 10 )
number of cards = -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------card_record_size
where:
Memory_size is the total APC RAM in kbytes.
Card_record_size is the number of bytes comprising a record. A
typical card_record_size for an 800 system can be estimated as
follows:
Item
Bytes
Card number

Events are the average number of events that an apC must store
between uploads to the host. A typical value is 1000.

apC/L Physical Requirements
Table 2.3 lists the apC/L memory requirements according to the number
of cardholder records supported.
Note
Table 2.3
The values in this table are approximate. Your exact memory
requirements depend on the host system used and the number of
cards and optional features in your system. The calculations
assume an event record memory of 10k bytes, or 1000 events.
The more options you add, the fewer the number of cards the
apC/L can support.

Connecting the apC/L Relay Outputs
This section describes how to connect the apC/L to relay outputs. It also
describes connecting the unit to the host computer.
Connecting Relay Outputs
Pins for apC/L relays are arranged in groups of three on the lower right side
of the board.
The pins are labeled COM (Common), NC (Normally Closed), NO
(Normally Open). Use twisted, 18 AWG (0.902 mm) Belden #8461 or
twisted 22 AWG (0.357 mm) Belden #8442 for wiring of all relay outputs.
CAUTION
Maximum relay contact voltage is 30V AC or DC.
Do not use apC/L relays to switch power, because this
may exceed the ratings for the relay contacts. Use a
secondary switching relay instead. All secondary relays
must have a diode or MOV connected for proper
suppression as shown in Figure 2.1.
When using an apC/L relay for controlling a DC door strike or for driving a
secondary relay, you must install a diode (Motorola diode type #1N4933 or
equivalent) across the strike or relay to suppress noise.
When using a relay for controlling an AC door strike, you must install a
MOV (World Products, Inc. part # SNR-D56K2 or equivalent) across the
strike to suppress noise.
Figure 2.1 illustrates the diode and MOV installations for door strikes.

Connecting the apC/L to the Host
P10 is the port used for connecting the apC/L to a host computer (see
Figure 2.2). A single apC/L can connect to the host via RS-232C format.
Multiple apC/Ls communicate via an RS-485 chain, but the apC/L chain
must be connected to the host through an RS-232 to RS-485 converter.

2-13
To increase the distance between the host and the apC/L, you can use
modems, line drivers, or other communications devices. The next two
sections describe RS-232C and RS-485 connections.
Note
You must configure jumpers W9-W14 on the apC/L for the
communications protocol being used. For host communication
using the RS-232C communication protocol, set jumpers W9W14 to the B position. See “Setting apC/L Jumpers” on page 6-7
for further information on jumper settings.
27C1024
RS-232C
For RS-232C transmission, follow these steps:
1. Use twisted, shielded 22 AWG (0.325 mm) Belden #9855.
2. Connect the cable shield to the apC/L chassis ground.
The apC/L can be no further than 50 ft. (15 m) from the host, unless
you extend this distance with a modem, line driver, or other
communications device. Connect the apC/L directly to the host as
shown in Table 2.6.

apC/L Physical Requirements
RS-485 Use RS-485 transmission to connect apC/L panels in a chain.
A multidrop line can have a total length of 4,000 ft. (1,219 m). Host
signals must be converted to an RS-485 by using an RS-232 to RS-485
converter.
In a multidrop configuration
1. Remove jumpers W4 and W5 on all apC/Ls except the last in the
chain.
2. Connect the apC/Ls using twisted, shielded 24 AWG (0.288 mm)
Belden #9842.
3. Tie the shield wires together where the two meet, but do not connect
the shield at the apC/L.
4. Ground the shield wires at the RS-232/RS-485 converter.
If your converter does not have an available point to connect the
shield to chassis ground, connect the shield at the chassis ground
connection on the last apC/L only.
RS-232C to RS-485 Converter
If you are using RS-485 transmission, you must use an RS-232C to RS485 converter to convert the chain to RS-485 at the host. Sensormatic
recommends using Black Box model #IC108A or an equivalent device.
Note

Line Drivers for directly connected apC/Ls
You can use a line driver (sometimes called a short haul modem) to
extend the distance the apC/L can be located from the host.
Communication between the line driver and the apC/L adds two
additional signals to the three required for communication between the
apC/L and the host. For information about connecting a line driver to the
host, see the appropriate documentation for your host.
Connect the line driver and apC with a 5-wire RS-232C cable. Note that
SW3:3 must be in the closed or ON position if the apC uses 5-wire
RS-232C connections. Connect the apC/L and the line driver as described

Modems for dialup mode apC/Ls
You can use dialup mode to connect an apC/L at a remote location to the
host using standard, voice-grade telephone lines instead of hardwired or
leased telephone lines. For many of your applications, dialup mode can be
more convenient and cheaper than other communications modes.
In dialup mode, the apC/L modem must use DTR.
CAUTION
Connect DTR to the apC only if you are connecting
the apC/L to a modem. Using DTR with an apC/L
connected directly to the host can result in hardware
damage.
The pins used for dialup are listed in Table 2.10. See Table F.3 in

Replacing the apC/L EPROMs
When Sensormatic updates an apC/L EPROM, you may need to replace
the EPROM at your site. If your panel is equipped with flash EPROMs
and the host supports flash downloading, firmware updates and
enhancements are made through the host. You will not need to replace
EPROMs.
For FlashROM, follow the instructions provided with the software.
CAUTION
EPROMs are sensitive to electrostatic discharge.
Change the EPROMs only when wearing a
grounding wrist strap.
To replace the apC/L EPROMs:
1. Remove power from the apC/L.
2. Using an IC extraction tool, carefully remove the EPROMs from
sockets U9 and U10.
3. Place the new U9 EPROM in the U9 socket. Place the new U10
EPROM in the U10 socket.
4. Carefully check the orientation of the EPROMs. The notch on the
EPROM should be placed toward the top of the apC/L module.
Ensure that all legs fit into the socket correctly.
Note
C•CURE apC/L Technical Manual
EPROMs fit into the socket differently, depending on the size of
the EPROM. The legs of EPROM 27C512 (28 pins) do not fill
every hole in the socket. Leave the top two rows of holes open.
The legs of EPROM 27C1024 (32 pins) fill the entire socket.

Setting Reader Type for an RM-4 Personality
Module
Set the reader type using DIP switch SW3-1 on the RM-4. If you are
setting up a magstripe reader, set SW3-1 to the Open (Off) position. If you
are connecting a Wiegand or proximity reader, set SW3-1 to Closed (On).
If you are setting up the last reader on a multidrop line, set SW3-5 to On.
Use the information in the following table to set the reader type.

Note
The RM must be powered off then back on for changes to take
effect.
Setting the Reader Address for an RM-4 or
Personality Module
The SW1 switch determines the communication address for the readers.
Note
On the RM personality module it is a 16-position rotary switch.
Each reader connected to an apC/L must use either 1 or 2 as its address. If
SW1 is set to 0 or if SW1 is set between two address numbers, the red
LED on the reader flashes rapidly when the reader is turned on. Use a
screwdriver to turn the arrow on the switch to the desired address. The
system reads the address switch setting after several seconds.

Installing the Auxiliary Relay Modules (ARM-1)
IMPORTANT
Before handling and installing any component, follow
these precautions:
Discharge your body’s static electricity charge
by touching a grounded surface.
Wear a grounding wrist strap and work on a
grounded static protection mat.
Do not slide a component over any surface.
Do not touch any circuitry or connector pins on
the circuit board.
Limit your movements during the installation
process to reduce static electricity.
If you are not installing the ARM-1, continue to the next section, “Wiring
Inputs to the RM” on page 4-17.
Note
All strike relays MUST have a diode or MOV connected as
described in this section. Figure 4.7 shows the diode used for a
DC door strike, and Figure 4.8 shows the MOV used for an AC
door strike. DO NOT exceed the contact ratings of the relay.
Note
The ARM-1 (#131-912) uses a logic-driven signal from the
RM-4 to drive a 12/24V relay for the door strike.

To install the ARM-1:
1. The ARM-1 is 1.7” by .75” (4.3 by 1.91 cm) in size. It is mounted
inside the protected area no more than 25 ft. (7.6 m) from the RM.
2. Pull a twisted, shielded pair of 22 AWG (0.357 mm) Belden #9462 in
between each ARM-1 and the reader personality module. The
maximum length for this cable is 25 ft. (7.6 m).
3. Pull a twisted pair of wires between the ARM-1 and the associated
relay controlled device.
4. With the shielded wire, connect pin 1 of P5 on the RM-4 module to
Pin 1 of P2 on the ARM-1. Then connect Pin 2 of P5 on the RM-4
module to pin 2 of P2 on the ARM1.
You can connect a second ARM-1 to the RM-4. P5-1 on the RM-4
module is the common pin for either ARM-1. P5-2 is the output for
the first ARM-1 and P5-3 is the output for the second. (Figure 4.6)
See Figure 4.8 for the layout of connector P5.

To install the RM-4 module in the junction box:
1. Insert metal standoffs (not supplied) in the module’s screw holes and
mount the module to the box.
2. Use 3/16” diameter round M/F 4-40 standoffs, with lengths
appropriate to your installation. For example, Globe part #A-6701440 is an acceptable 1/4” standoff.
Note
Ensure that the mounting hole nearest the grounding lug (J5) of
the RM-4 is grounded to a proper earth ground or ground
directly to lug J5. See Figure 4.11.
Installing the RM1 or RM2 Reader Assembly
CAUTION
Do not apply power to any equipment while it is
being installed. Apply power only after all procedures
in this chapter are completed, and the system is ready
for testing. Failure to follow this warning could result
in damage to equipment, personal injury, or death.
To install reader assembly:
1. Secure the reader backplate and gasket to the junction box with the
four mounting screws.
When RM or MRM readers are installed outdoors, the foam gasket
forms a weather seal.
2. Align all holes in the gasket with the holes in the backplate. Leave an
equal amount of gasket overlap on all sides of the plate.
If the reader is located in a high-static area or if it is not connected to
a grounded circuit, run a ground strap from the reader backplate to a
local AC ground or cold water pipe. Use as short a wire as possible.

Outdoor readers MUST be installed in a vertical
position to allow for proper drainage. Install a fitted
gasket between the backing plate of these readers and
the wall. Ensure that the “weep” holes in the bottom
of the housing are unobstructed.
3. Hook the top of the reader over the top of the backplate, and press the
reader firmly against it.
4. Use a security screwdriver (part #132-183) to install the two security
screws in the bottom of the reader.
Installing the RM-4 Personality Module
To install a third-party reader:
1. For non-Sensormatic Wiegand readers such as Sensor Readers, install
the RM-4 in a grounded 6" x 4" (minimum) metal junction box no
more than 25 feet from the read head.
2. Remove the knockout plugs from the junction box.
3. Install the box in the desired location, and attach the conduits.
4. Mount the RM-4 module using metal standoffs and screws.
5. Earth grounding the module is required to reduce electrical noise in
the circuit. To ground the module to the box, either make a connection
from lug J5 to earth ground or use a metal standoff and screw in the
mounting hole next to C2 and V4 (the voltage regulator).
6. Make sure that the connection is continuous to the box. See Figure
4.10 for the location of the grounding lug J5.
To install a magnetic stripe Mullion reader:
1. Install the RM-4 for a magnetic stripe mullion reader RM-3 in a
grounded, 6" x 4" (minimum) metal junction box no more than 10
feet (3.05 m) from the read head.

The I8 Input Module
The apC/L I8 (also referred to as an RM Input Module), provides eight
Class A supervised inputs. You can connect a total of four Input Modules
to one apC/L. Input Modules connect directly to the RS-485 reader bus,
which reduces wiring.

Input and Output Modules
Installing Optional Modules
You install the optional modules on the reader bus, just as you would
install a reader. The mounting slot in each corner serves as a connection
for earth ground. For ESD considerations, make sure at least one corner is
tied to earth ground.
Input/Output Number Map
Numbering for inputs and outputs differs depending on which C•CURE
system you are using. For a numbering map of these inputs and outputs,
see Appendix E of this manual.
Every input device, including door contacts, request-to-exit, or standard
monitoring equipment, has a unique input number determined by the
Input module pins to which it connects. Input pins are located on the RM
personality module and the Input Module.
Setting Up Input/Output Module Addresses
For each Input or Output Module you use, you must configure an address.
Different types of modules can have the same address, but the same type
of module cannot have the same address.
Table 5.1 indicates how to set up addresses for the modules. Note that
each device has a unique address from 1 to 4, and that an RM’s address
maps to the physical number of the module.

Figure 6.2 SW3 and SW1 Switches
Use rotary switch SW1 to indicate the apC/L’s unique address. You can set the
SW1 rotary switch by using a screwdriver to turn the arrow to the number you
want. You need to set SW3:8 correctly to indicate the address.
The SW3 DIP switch package contains eight switches with two positions: ON
(or closed) and OFF (or open). For most installations, all switches should be
in the OFF position.
The apC/L reads the SW3:2 switch (dialup mode enable) only when it is
powered up with the SW3:1 switch set ON. Changes to the SW3:2 switch
setting do not take effect until the next power up with SW3:1 set ON.
Table 6.1 lists the settings for the apC/L DIP switches. The following sections
describe the switches and their function.

switch is used only during your initial database set-up. For normal operation,
set the switch off.
Note
When you are installing a new apC/L or an apC/L that has been
unused for a period of time, power up with SW3:1 ON to clear the
apC/L memory, then turn SW3:1 OFF.

with directly connected apC/Ls. For modem communications, including
apC/L dialup mode, match the apC/L’s parity to the host’s parity. With either
setting, the apC/L communicates 8-bit characters with one stop bit. Note that
the apC/L and the host will not communicate if the host, the apC/L, and the
modem parity settings are not the same.
SW3:5-7 Switches 5 through 7 set the baud rate at which the apC/L
communicates to the host computer and X.25 parameters. Set the baud rate to
the highest rate compatible with the host. If the devices are far apart or if
communications errors result, lower the baud rate. All apC/Ls in a chain must
run at the same rate. If you are using a modem, set these switches to match the
modem’s baud rate. Baud rates and their corresponding switch settings are as
follows:

Setting apC/L Jumpers
The apC/L uses several jumpers. Some of these control communications
features of the apC/L and they must be properly set for the apC/L to function.
Most of the jumpers are two-post and are either open or closed. Some jumpers
have three posts for an A or B setting. You can close section A or B of a threepost jumper, by installing a jumper housing between the center post and the A
or B post.
See Figure 6.1 for the location of the jumpers on the apC/L and Table 6.3 for
the settings of the apC/L jumpers and their function.

W8 Jumper W8 is not implemented on the apC/L, circuit board Rev. A or
B. On Rev. C boards, normal operation of the power fail condition while
running with an internal battery backup is achieved with W8 installed. This
condition disables the external power fail P3 connection (leave open). With
W8 removed, P3 is enabled. A short across P3 indicates that the power is
okay, while an open on P3 indicates a power fail condition.
W9 - W14 Host Port Communication Protocol Jumpers W9 through
W14 determine the type of transmission at the host port. Close the A section

Testing the apC/L Installation
Testing the apC/L Main Circuit Board
Disconnect the apC/L from the host when you test it. The LEDs on the apC/L
main circuit board indicate whether the board is functioning properly.
To test the main circuit board:
1. Remove power from the apC/L and disconnect the reader wiring.
2. Apply power to the apC/L.
3. About one second after turning on power, the top RED LED on the LED
BAR turns ON for approximately one-half second.
4. RED1 goes OFF, and the other nine LEDs turn ON.
5. After a delay of approximately 5 seconds, the LED BAR cycles from
RED2 through YELLOW2. If larger memory options are installed, the
other LEDs turn on, indicating a memory test.
6. GREEN3 remains ON, GREEN2 flashes every second, GREEN1 flashes
every 1/2 second, and YELLOW4 remains ON.
7. Reader Data LED1 at the bottom of main board should flash rapidly about
every three seconds. This indicates that the apC/L is attempting to poll a
reader.
If the test procedure does not complete all of the preceding steps, contact
Sensormatic Customer Support.

Voltage Power
Voltage Power
The RM-4 must have voltage of at least 7.5 volts to operate properly. While
the apC/L supplies 12 volts at its connectors, the amount of power that
actually reaches each RM-4 in a chain is less than 12 volts. The voltage is
lowered by each reader and by the resistance of the wire. Whether an RM-4 or
Input/Output module chain needs a local power supply depends on all of the
following factors:
n
n
n
n
Number of readers and Input/Output in the chain
Distance between the first RM-4 board and the apC/L
Distance between the readers in the chain
Wire gauge used to connect the readers and the apC/L
This guide gives you a way to determine the maximum wire lengths you can
use in a particular chain. The appendix also gives you a worksheet for
determining power in a chain. Be sure you read and understand the
instructions and the examples before you begin to calculate the maximum
wiring lengths for your application.

Using the Worksheet
B-3
Using the Worksheet
Use this worksheet to determine whether the readers in your layout fall within
the allowable wiring length range. To use the worksheet, you need to know
the type of wire used to connect the RMs or Input or Output modules to the
apC/L and the distances between each element of the chain.
To determine wiring length range:
1. Fill in the blanks in the figure with the wiring distances between the
apC/L and the first device and between each of the following devices. If
you estimate the distances, be sure to overestimate, rather than
underestimate. Use only the spaces corresponding to the RMs you have.
apC/L RDR A
or RDR B
# feet
RM-4 #1
# feet
RM-4 #2

2. In the following table, find the wire resistance (ohms per foot) for the type
of wire you are using.
Wire Type
Resistance (ohms per foot)
18 AWG
0.01277
22 AWG
0.03227
3. Write the resistance value from step 2 in each box of the Wire resistance
per foot column in the wire length worksheet shown in Table B.1.
4. On the worksheet, find the intersection of the Wire length (ft) column and
the row corresponding to the total number of devices in the chain. In that
box, enter the distance between the apC/L and the first reader. Check the
diagram in step one for the distances.

Using the Worksheet
5. In each of the boxes in the wire length column below the box used in step
4, enter the wire lengths between the readers in the chain. Use only the
rows corresponding to your number of readers. You will not use all rows
unless you have two readers and four input and four output modules.
6. Multiply the figures across in each row. Enter the result in each box of the
Total power drop column.
7. Add the Total voltage drop column. The total cannot exceed 4.5 volts. If
your total is greater than 4.5 volts, you must do one of the following to
ensure proper operation of the RM module:

Example calculation Using the Worksheet
This example shows you how to use the worksheet to make sure that your
RMs have adequate power. Suppose your installation uses 18 AWG wire to
connect two RMs to the apC/L. The first RM is 250 ft. from the apC/L. The
second RM is 500 ft. from the first. This is the same layout described in the
previous example using the wiring length tables.
To perform the example calculation:
1. Enter the wiring lengths in the blanks in the worksheet. Note that not all
spaces are filled in.

2. The wire resistance per foot for 18 AWG wire is 0.01277 ohm per foot.
3. The total voltage drop for this chain is 2.544. Since this is less than the 4.5
maximum, the wiring is adequate for this installation.

Software switches extend the capabilities of the apC/L, allowing you to
program functionality with the C•CURE system you are using.
C•CURE 1 Plus Ultra
For elevator control, set Software Switches 11 and 12 to 1.
To enable second output on an RM reader, set Software Switch 8 to ON.
This will disable the first RM 8 Output Module and allow the system to

Modem Settings
An apC/L in dialup mode at a remote location connects to the host using
standard, voice-grade telephone lines instead of hardwired or leased
telephone lines. In many applications, dialup mode is more convenient
and cheaper than other communications modes.
Sensormatic Access Control Division has identified a special OEM
modem for dialup and lease-line applications. This modem has been
manufactured to Sensormatic ACD specifications to guarantee optimal
performance when used with the C•CURE 1 Plus Ultra, C•CURE 750,
and C•CURE 800/8000 in either dialup or lease-line configurations.
Sensormatic ACD has tested modems made by various manufacturers and
has found that due to constantly changing manufacturer’s specifications,
we could not guarantee that the next release of a particular modem would
still function properly with previously defined setups and our system
requirements. As a result, Sensormatic ACD does not guarantee operation
nor offer technical support for any modem other than our OEM modem.
When using a modem for dialup mode, make sure the modem is operating
with command echo off and Data Terminal Ready (DTR) enabled.
You can configure modems by using software commands or by setting
DIP switches.

Configuring Non-OEM Modems with Software
Configuring Non-OEM Modems with Software
The apC/L automatically sets up modems that are configured using
software commands, based on the modem’s default settings. However, the
default settings of some modems do not turn command echo off and
enable DTR. This causes unpredictable behavior when the apC/L is used
in dialup mode.
To ensure proper operation with modems normally configured with
software commands, you must preprogram the modems manually at a
terminal with the following pre-programming commands.
AT&F <CR>
Recall factory defaults
ATE0 <CR>
Command echo off
AT&D2 <CR>
Enable DTR
AT&W <CR>
Save as the first user-defined configuration
Note
If your modem does not accept these commands, consult the
modem documentation for the equivalent commands.
Perform this procedure only once after installation, since user-defined
configuration will be restored with each power-up. Consult your modem
documentation for more information about configuring your particular
modem.

Configuring OEM Modems
Configuring Modems for Use with Leased Line
Configuration
You must set your panel using direct connect settings rather than the dial
up settings for leased line. Also if you are using leased lines, it is very
important that you understand the decibel (dB) loss specifications of the
lease line to be used. Software House, Sensormatic ACD supports 0 or
-10 dB Loss with the MT1932BL modem and -9 or -15 dB Loss with the
MT2834BL modem. This is controlled on the OEM modem by switch 3.
The dB transmission rate is the strength of the signal being delivered by
the telephone company. A 0-dB transmission level is the strongest signal
possible. After that the -# dB's are used to weaken the strength of the
signal. The telephone company sets most leased lines to a 0-dB loss. The
only time you would need to set a -# dB loss is if you were located near
the telephone company and needed to weaken the signal because of the
close proximity to the source of the signal. In most cases a 0-dB level is
the desired setting. Be sure you verify this information with the telephone
company prior to ordering the OEM modem to ensure you have to proper
model mode for the dB transmission level of your lease line.
MT2834BL Series:
DIP-Switch #3 adjusts dB transmission levels required by some phone
carriers. Place DIP-Switch #3 in the DOWN position to enable -9 dB
transmission. Place DIP-Switch #3 in the UP position to enable -15 dB
transmission.
-9dB Transmission = Switch #3 DOWN
-15dB Transmission = Switch #3 UP
Factory Default Setting = DOWN
MT1932BL Series:
DIP-Switch #3 adjusts dB transmission levels required by some phone
carriers. Place DIP-Switch #3 in the DOWN position to enable 0 dB
transmission. Place DIP-Switch #3 in the UP position to enable -10 dB
transmission.
0dB Transmission = Switch #3 DOWN
-10dB Transmission = Switch #3 UP
Factory Default Setting = DOWN
