1.1
Introducing the TX3 Suite
The TX3 product suite consists of access control panels (Telephone Access, Card
Access, Aperio Door Controller and Touch Screen) and the TX3 Configurator
software. The Telephone and Card Access Systems are the traditional keypad and
card access type of entry systems. The Aperio Door Controller System interfaces
with Aperio wireless hubs and locksets to provide card and keypad access.
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, Card Access, and Touch Screen Systems:

Terminals)
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.
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 devices such as the Card Access Controller, the Lobby Control Unit, and
the Touch Screen can be networked with the TX3 system through a peer-to-peer
RS-485 network, an ethernet TCP/IP network, or a combination of ethernet and
RS-485 networks.
The TX3 Configurator software can connect to any of these network
configurations. How you connect to the network (that is, through TCP/IP, USB,
a modem, or the COM port) determines what devices you can configure on the
network using the TX3 Configurator. The different network configurations are
explained in the rest of this section.
Figure 1 shows a configuration with TX3 controllers connected on an RS-485
network. Each controller has to have a unique network address on the RS-485
network. Up to 63 unique network addresses can be assigned. If you connect to
any device on the RS-485 network (using USB, a modem, or the COM port), you
can also connect to and configure any other device on the RS-485 network using
the TX3 Configurator.

Figure 2 shows a configuration with TX3 devices connected to an ethernet TCP/
IP network. This configuration removes the 63 device limitation that you have on
an RS-485 network. The devices connected to an ethernet TCP/IP network are
called Master Nodes. If you connect to the TCP/IP network with the TX3
Configurator, you can connect to and configure any of the Master Nodes on the
ethernet TCP/IP network. If you connect directly to one of the Master Nodes
using USB, a modem, or a COM port, you will be able to configure that device but
not any other device.

Figure 3 shows a configuration with TX3 devices connected on both an ethernet
TCP/IP network and on RS-485 subnetworks. Devices connected to a Master
Node’s RS-485 subnetwork are Slave Nodes to the Master Node. Each RS-485
subnetwork can have up to 63 devices connected to it; you can still have more
than 63 Master Nodes connected to the ethernet network.

If you connect to the ethernet TCP/IP network with the TX3 Configurator, you
can configure any of the nodes in this configuration. If you connect directly to a
device using USB, a modem, or a COM port, you will only be able to configure
devices that are on the same RS-485 subnetwork as that device.

Note:
1.2
There can only be one Master Node on an RS-485 subnetwork. That
is, you cannot connect one RS-485 subnetwork to another RS-485
subnetwork. However, if you want to connect to a Touch Screen
panel remotely over the Internet (for instance, to configure Touch
Screen options such as color and themes), the Touch Screen panel
must be set as a Master Node even if there is no slave panel
connected to it.

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
•
providing advertisement content
•
adding new tenants
•
system configuration
•
monitoring the operational health of the system
•
assigning user privileges
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.

Welcome
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.
The network architecture is determined by the expected resident traffic, number
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.
1.6
TCP/IP Network Configuration
Section 1.1.3, Other Controllers, describes the options available for networking
together more than one TX3 panel, which include TCP/IP networks. In order for
your TX3 system to communicate over a TCP/IP network, the following ports
must be available for the TX3 system.
Touch Screens: 8080
non-Touch Screens:
•
14000
•
14001
•
14002
•
14003
If you are using a TCP/IP network and your TX3 system is not communicating
properly, there may be another program on the network using ports 8080 or
14000-14003. If that is true, configure the other program to use a different range
of ports.

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.

Sending Jobs to Panels
There are two ways to send a Job to a panel. Once panel connectivity is
established, you can send the current Job configuration to an individual panel by
clicking Send to Single Panel or to all panels by clicking Send Job to
Panels.
To reduce programming time, the Configurator determines the minimal set of
configuration changes to send. Sending a Job to all panels only sends the
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
•
a new panel is added to the Job
To send to all panels

Getting Jobs
When retrieving a Job, the Job tree reads information directly from the panels
currently connected to the network and adds panels to the Job automatically.
Panels do not store the user profile information. In these cases panels use default
information. For a description of user profiles see section 5.5 (Adding or

3.1
Adding a Panel
The first step in setting up the panel is to add the panel to the network. Once a
Touch Screen, Card Access or Telephone Access panel is added to the network,
access configuration information can be entered.
Note:
When adding additional panels ensure the selected panel matches
the panel and model you wish to connect to.
For information about the installation of the Telephone Access and Card Access
Systems, refer to the manuals shipped with the system and on the Mircom website
(www.mircom.com).
The procedure for adding panels differs slightly depending on how you are
connecting to your TX3 system. If you are connecting directly to a panel (using a
modem, the USB port, or a COM port), follow the instructions in section 3.1.1,
Adding Panels Using a Modem, USB, or COM Connection. If you are connecting
to a TX3 system with Master Nodes and Slave Nodes on an ethernet TCP/IP
network, see section 3.1.2, Adding Panels Using a TCP/IP Connection.
General information on how TX3 devices can be connected together (RS-485,
ethernet, or both) can be found in section 1.1.3, Other Controllers on page 11.
3.1.1
Adding Panels Using a Modem, USB, or COM Connection
When you connect to a panel using a modem, USB, or COM connection, you can
add that panel as well as any other panel connected to the same RS-485 network
to your job. In order to add a panel to your job, you need to know both the RS-485
network address and model of the panel.

Changing a Master Node’s IP Address
You can use the TX3 Configurator to change the IP address for a Master Node.
Changing the IP address for a Master Node is a two-step process. The first step is
to change the IP address on the Master Node. The second step is to change the IP
address information for the panel in your Job file.
Notes:
Before you change a Master Node’s IP address, be aware of the
following:
•
You must first configure the Master Node to get its IP address
from the TX3 Configurator (usually by setting DIP Switch 8
on the RS-485 address switch to ON). Refer to the panels’s
installation manual for details on how to do this.
•
If you are having problems changing IP addresses, there may
be another program using the TCP/IP ports that the TX3
system communicates on. See 1.6 TCP/IP Network
Configuration on page 18 for information on what ports the
TX3 system uses.
•
You cannot change the IP address for a Touch Screen
terminal using the TX3 Configurator. Touch Screens are
configured to use DHCP to get their IP addresses.

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 contact 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.

Configuring Outputs
By default output 1 is assigned to Reader A lock with an energized active state.
When access is granted this output unlocks the main door.
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
unlocks the door.
Handicap lock for reader A or B. This output is assigned to either reader A or
B to unlock the accessible door. When access is granted at the designated reader,
this output unlocks the door. Access is granted to cards with designated handicap
privileges.
General purpose output. An output assigned this function can perform any
required function, such as turning on a light.
Outputs 1 to 8 have the following default settings:
Output 1. Lock for reader A
Output 2. Reader A handicap
Output 3. General Purpose

When adding additional panels ensure the selected panel matches
the panel you wish to connect to.
Aperio Door Controller panel configuration lets you:
•
label a panel
•
set panel options
•
add and configure access points (wireless locksets)
•
define and assign inputs and outputs
•
correlate events with actions
•

For information about the installation of the Aperio Door Controllers, refer to the
manuals shipped with the system and on the Mircom website
(www.mircom.com).
Note:
7.1.1
The terms “access point”, “wireless lockset”, and “lockset” all refer
to Aperio wireless locksets and sensors in this chapter. To avoid
confusion, the terms “wireless lockset” and “lockset” are used to
refer to the Aperio wireless lockset and sensor hardware (for
example, “swipe a card at the wireless lockset”) and the term
“access point” is used to refer to the software representation of an
Aperio wireless lockset in the TX3 Configurator software (for
example, “configure the timers for an access point” or “right-click
on the access point”).

Adding Access Points to Aperio Door Controllers
Aperio Door Controllers can be configured with up to 8 wireless locksets (access
points). When you add a new Aperio Door Controller panel to your job, you have
to add one access point for each wireless lockset that the panel controls. For
example, if you installed an Aperio Door Controller with 2 Aperio hubs and
paired 3 locksets to each of the hubs, you will need to add 6 access points to your
panel in the TX3 configurator.
For more information about installing Aperio Door Controllers, Aperio hubs, and
wireless locksets as well as how to pair a wireless lockset with an Aperio hub, see
LT-1160 (TX3-CX-A8 Aperio Door Controller System Installation and
Operation Manual).
Note:

Access points require additional configuration to specify how certain access
requirements run on a scheduled basis. Access privileges may have dependencies
and consequently may be more suitable to run as a scheduled task.
To apply schedules, they must be first created using the Schedule Configuration
Window (see Chapter 10).
The auto lock/unlock scheduling for door operation allows free access without an
access card during specified times and areas.
Note:
The wireless locksets must have the remote open option activated in
order for the auto unlock schedule to work. Information on how to

Configuring Inputs
Each Aperio door controller has eight general purpose inputs. Inputs are used in
correlations (see section 7.4) to trigger an action based on the state of the input.
For example, a correlation can be written to turn on one of the general purpose
outputs or to turn on high security mode when an input becomes active.
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-1160 TX3-CX-A8 Aperio Door Controller System Installation and
Operation Manual.

Configuring Outputs
Each Aperio Door Controller has eight general purpose outputs. These outputs
can be turned off or on when an event occurs suing a correlation correlations (see
section 7.4). For example, a correlation can be written to turn on one of the
general purpose outputs when a particular input becomes active.
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.
Outputs 1 to 6 are dry relay contacts.
Outputs 7 and 8 are programmable and provide:

Overview
A TX3 network is connected to the Internet by a router. In order to access Master
Nodes on the TX3 network over the Internet, the router must be configured to
map IP addresses and ports correctly.
Master Node: A Master Node is a TX3 device that is connected to an IP network.
Router: A router is a device that communicates between a local area network
(like a TX3 network) and the rest of the Internet.
Local PC: Use a PC or laptop connected to the same network as the Master Node
in order to configure the router and find the IP addresses of the Master Node. You
can disconnect the local PC after the configuration is complete.
Remote PC: Use the remote PC to access the Master Node over the Internet.
IP address: An IP address is a series of four numbers separated by periods (for
instance, 10.10.8.2) which identifies a device on an IP network. IP addresses can
be local (used within the local network) or global (assigned by the Internet
service provider and used on the Internet). Each Master Node on a TX3 network
has a local IP address which is used within the TX3 network. The router maps the
local IP addresses onto global IP addresses so that the Master Nodes can be
accessed over the Internet.
Port: A port is a number associated with an IP address and used by a specific
application. Ports are like telephone extensions. Just as one telephone number
can have many extensions, one IP address can have many ports, where each port
is used by a different application. For example, the TX3 Configurator uses port
8080 to communicate with Touch Screen Master Nodes, and port 14000 to
communicate with non-Touch Screen Master Nodes.
8.2
Get the IP Addresses, RS-485 Addresses, and
MAC addresses of the Master Nodes
To configure remote access you must first get the IP addresses, RS-485
addresses, and MAC addresses of the Master Nodes.

Remote Access
To access the Master Nodes remotely over the Internet, you must configure the
router to assign or map each Master Node IP address and port to a global IP
address (the IP address assigned by the service provider) and port.
The mapping of the nodes in Figure 124 is shown below. Node 10.10.8.2 is
assigned to external port 15000, the node 10.10.8.3 is assigned to external port
15001, and the node 10.10.8.4 is assigned to external port 15002.
The internal port is 8080 for Touch Screens and 14000 for non-Touch Screens. In
this example, 10.10.8.4 is a Touch Screen so it has an internal port of 8080. The
other two nodes are not Touch Screens, so they have internal ports of 14000.
A remote PC accesses a Master Node by sending a request to the router’s global
IP address plus the port assigned to the Master Node.

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 9.1).
A maximum of 128 access levels are defined for each controller. For each access
level, you can select a schedule for all of the access points in your job.
For example, if your job has a Card Access System panel called Panel1 with two
access points (Reader A and Reader B) and an Aperio Door Controller called
Panel2 with two access points (Lockset 1:0 and Lockset 1:1), you could define
the following access levels.
Access Level ID = 1
•
Panel1: Reader A schedule = Always
•
Panel1: Reader B schedule = Never
•
Panel2: Lockset 1:0 schedule = Never
•
Panel2: Lockset 2:0 schedule = Never
Access Level ID = 2
•
Panel1: Reader A schedule = Office hours
•
Panel1: Reader B schedule = Always
•
Panel2: Lockset 1:0 schedule = Always
•
Panel2: Lockset 2:0 schedule = Always
If a card is assigned Access Level 1, the user has access to Reader A on Panel1 at
all times but will not have access to any other access point.
If a card is assigned Access Level 2, the user has access to Reader A during the
Office Hours schedule only and will have access to all of the other access points
all of the time.
Access Levels appear in the Job tree with the addition of the first Card Access
System panel or Aperio Door Controller 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.
