issuance of a purchase order by an Authorized User pursuant to this provision
shall constitute an express assumption of all contractual obligations, covenants,
conditions and terms of the contract. A breach of the contract by any particular

provisions herein do not constitute a complete agreement, and must be appended to a document, executed
by all parties, which identifies the specific work to be performed, compensation, term, incorporated
attachments, and special conditions, if any. This document and the Contract are intended to be

may be necessary to correct errors, defects, and omissions in the services required under
this Contract, without undue delays and without cost to the County. The acceptance of
the work set forth herein by the County shall not relieve the Contractor of the
responsibility of subsequent corrections of such errors.
B. Set Off. The County may deduct from and set-off against any amounts due and payable
to the Contractor any back-charges, penalties, or damages sustained by the County, its
agents, employees of recipients of its services, by virtue of any breach of this Contract by

services or any part of the services in a satisfactory manner. Nothing herein shall be
construed to relieve the Contractor of liability for additional costs resulting from a failure
to satisfactorily perform the services.

may be exercised successively or concurrently. The foregoing is without limitation to or

the standard set forth in subparagraph A above it shall, if required by the County, perform at its own
expense and without additional cost to the County, those services necessary for the correction of
any deficiencies of damages resulting, in whole or in part, from the Contractor's failure. This
obligation is in addition to and not in substitution for any other remedy available to the County
under the “Remedies” paragraph, or otherwise available by law.
Nondiscrimination. A contractor who is the recipient of County funds, or who proposes to perform any work
or furnish any goods under this Contract shall not discriminate against any worker, employee or applicant

be reimbursed for any anticipatory profits that have not been earned up to the date of termination.
Termination of Multi-year Contract. If the County fails to appropriate funds or if funds are not otherwise made
available for continued performance for any fiscal period of this Contract succeeding the first fiscal period,
this Contract shall be cancelled automatically as of the beginning of the fiscal year for which funds were not
appropriated or otherwise made available; provided, however, that this will not affect either the County's
rights or the Contractor's rights under any termination clause in this Contract. The effect of termination of the
Contract hereunder will be to discharge both the Contractor and the County from future performance of the
Contract, but not from their rights and obligations existing at the time of termination. The Contractor shall be
reimbursed for the reasonable value of any non-recurring costs incurred but not amortized in the price of the
Contract. The County shall notify the Contractor as soon as it has knowledge that funds may not be
available for the continuation of this Contract for each succeeding fiscal period beyond the first.

Section 1 — Important Safety Information — READ FIRST
Important Safety Information – Review before Installation
Automatic gate operators provide user convenience and security. However, because these machines can
produce high levels of force, it is important that all automated gate system designers, installers and end users
be aware of the potential hazards associated with improperly designed, installed or maintained systems. Keep
in mind that the gate operator is only one component of the automated gate system. It is the joint responsibility
of the specifier, designer, purchaser, installer and end user to verify that the system is appropriately
configured for its intended use. All parties should be informed that entrapment in a moving gate can cause
serious injury or death.
-DangerKeep Away
-Take Note-
Pinch Point
Important Instructions for Gate System Designers & Installers:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all instructions
found in the gate operator manual and on the warning labels.
Install an Automatic Gate Operator only when:
The entry is configured for vehicular use only. Pedestrians must be directed to a
separate walk-through entrance. The WARNING signs that have been supplied with
this operator must be installed in a manner clearly visible on both sides of the gate.
All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened, from the bottom of
the gate to a minimum of 4 feet (1.2m) height above the ground, to prevent a sphere
2¼ inches (57mm) in diameter from passing through an opening anywhere in the
gate or the portion of the adjacent fence that is covered in the open position.
All exposed pinch points, rollers and wheels are guarded. To reduce the risk
of entrapment, the gate must also be installed so that enough clearance is provided
between the gate and adjacent structures both when opening and closing. Minimize
the parallel gap between the gate and the fence.
The gate has been constructed with physical stops to prevent over-travel in both
directions and has guard posts that prevent the gate from falling in the event of a
roller failure.

Section 1 — Important Safety Information — READ FIRST!
Site, Gate, Equipment and Regulatory Requirements
The gate moves freely in both directions. Never over-tighten a clutch or pressure relief valve to
compensate for a stiff gate.
The operator will be installed on the secured (non-public) side of the gate.
The operator will be properly grounded and the intended supply voltage matches the voltage
label on the operator.
The potential for lightning discharge exists with all gates, fences, and gate operators.
National Electric Code (NEC) requires a separate earth ground in addition to the required
equipment ground.
HySecurity recommends grounding the operator with a separate ground rod to shield the
operator against electromagnetism and other electrical signals that may cause erratic operation
with or damage to the Smart DC Controller.
NOTE: If you do not ground the operator with a separate ground rod, you risk voiding the
Limited Warranty.
The gate operation controls have been mounted far enough away from the moving gate such
that users cannot touch the gate while operating the controls. All easily accessible controls must
have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.
The operator controls will be located in line-of-sight to the gate. Radio controls and other remote
access controls must be connected only to the Remote Open input.
Required external entrapment sensors will be installed. Be certain to carefully review the
instructions for placement, installation and adjustment of these external entrapment sensors.
External entrapment sensors must function to reverse the movement of the gate in both
opening and closing directions. If edge (contact) sensors are used, they are to be mounted
on the leading and trailing edges of the gate, as well as post mounted on the inside and outside
of the gate (See illustration on page 4). If photo eyes or other non-contact sensors are used,
they are to be mounted in locations most likely to guard against entrapment. A combination of
contact and non-contact sensors may be used, but all must be recognized components under
the UL 325 standard. See page 32 for details on the requirements.
If entrapment protection is provided by a continuous pressure actuation control, a placard
stating “WARNING” – “Moving Gate has the Potential of Inflicting Injury or Death - Do Not Start
Gate Unless Path is Clear” must be posted. Additionally, no other activation device shall be
connected and no automatic closing device, of any kind, shall be used.
The automatic operator is labeled as appropriate for both the type and UL usage class of the
NOTE: Slide Driver 50VF2, 50VF2-EFO and 50VF3 sliding gate operators must be installed
only for Class III & IV applications.
Class I: Intended to serve single to four family residential uses
Class II: Multi-family use, or any application intended to serve the general public
Class III: Commercial applications not intended to serve the general public
Class IV: Highest security. Security personnel prevent unauthorized access
Sliding gate operators installed in Class III & IV applications do not have a speed restriction and
the secondary entrapment sensor requirement is met if the system is configured as described
for Class I & II use, or by the following alternative means, such as:
Employing the use of a 100dB buzzer which sounds at least 3 seconds before the gate
Employing the use of a constant hold-type push button control.

Section 1 — Important Safety Information — READ FIRST!
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all
instructions found in this manual and on warning labels.
Save These Important Owner and User Instructions:
(Installers – be certain to instruct the owners and users about the
following items.)
Automatic gates are for vehicular use only! Provide walkways and
signs to direct pedestrians to a separate walk-through entrance.
Because an automatic gate can start at any time without warning,
always keep people away from the gate area. The Warning signs that
have been supplied with this operator must remain installed, in
manner clearly visible on both sides of the gate.
Never allow children to use or play with the controls that operate the
gate. Keep all remote controls away from children, especially radio
Teach all users how to turn off the electric power source and how to release and move the
gate manually. Use the manual release only when the gate is not moving.
Test gate operator functionality monthly. The gate MUST reverse direction of travel upon
contact with a rigid object, and/or stop upon a sensing a second sequential activation prior to
reaching a full travel limit. Also test for the normal function of any non-contact sensors. If the
gate system employs the use of a transmitting edge sensor, be especially certain to routinely
test and replace its battery.
KEEP AUTOMATIC GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Have a professional gate installer
perform routine entrapment protection sensor tests. This includes photo eyes and gate edges.
Repair gate hardware when encountered to keep the gate running smoothly. Failure, to make
timely repairs or adjust and test a gate operator properly, can increase the risk of injury or
In addition to appropriately placed external entrapment sensors, ask your installer to reduce
the pressure relief valve setting to the lowest setting allowable that reliably operates the
hydraulic gate. This valve controls the force of the operator, and the sensitivity of the inherent
reversing sensor.
Do not attempt to disable or muffle the Warn Before Operate buzzer, except in Class IV
restricted access locations. This buzzer provides an alert that the gate is about to

however, a single device is not required to cover both directions. A combination of a Type B1 for one direction and a Type
B2 for the other direction is the equivalent of one device for the purpose of complying with the requirements of either the
primary or secondary entrapment protection means.
aEntrapment protection sensor types:
Type A - Inherent entrapment sensing systems.
Type B1 - A non-contact sensor (photoelectric sensor or the equivalent).
Type B2 - A contact sensor (edge sensor device or the equivalent).
Type C - Inherent adjustable clutch or pressure relief device.
Type D - An actuating device requiring continuous pressure to maintain opening or closing
motion of the gate.
Type E - An inherent audio alarm, which warns a minimum of 3 seconds before operation.
UL Usage Class Information:
The automatic vehicular operator must also be labeled as appropriate for both the type and usage class of the gate.
Installers must verify that the gate operator is labeled for the intended application.
The Usage Classes are:
Class I: Intended for use in a location with one to four single family dwellings, or a parking area associated therewith.
Class II: Intended for use in a commercial location or building such as a multi-family housing unit (five or more single
family units) hotel, garages, retail store or other building servicing the general public.
Class III: Intended for use in an industrial location or building such as a factory or loading dock or other locations not
intended to service the general public.
Class IV: Intended for use in a guarded industrial location or building such as an airport security area or other restricted
access locations not servicing the general public, in which unauthorized access is prevented via supervision by security

Section 4 — Placement & Use of Secondary Pedestrian Entrapment Sensors
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious injury or death, read and follow all instructions in the gate operator
handbook and on the warning labels.
Automatic gate operators are intended for vehicular use and pedestrians must be routed to a separate main gate.
However, to provide a degree of protection should anyone happen to stray into the area of an automatic gate, sensors are
required. Generally two types of external sensors may be used:
Contact type sensors, such as an edge sensor
Non-contact sensors, such as photoelectric sensors
Current industry standards require the use of either type, or both, of these sensors as a secondary device in Class I and
Class II automatic sliding gate installations because the general public is likely to be present. Although alternative options
exist for Class III and IV installations, we highly recommend the use of external sensors for all automatic gate
The specifier or installer may choose either photoelectric sensors or edge sensors, or use these devices in combination,
but both the open and closing directions of gate travel must be guarded. The UL 325 standard for automatic sliding gates
specifically requires the following:
One or more non-contact sensors (photoelectric eyes) shall be located where the risk of entrapment or
obstruction exists, such as the perimeter reachable by a moving gate.
One or more contact sensors (edge sensors) shall be located at the leading edge, trailing edge and post mounted
both inside and outside of a sliding gate.
A hard-wired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the
sensor and the gate is not subjected to mechanical damage.
A contact sensor that transmits its signal to the gate operator shall be located such that the signal is not impeded
by building structures or other obstructions and shall function under its intended end-use conditions.
The contact and non-contact sensors must be tested and labeled as “Recognized Components” under the UL 325
standard in order to be deemed acceptable for use in this application.
Study the entrapment protection schematic and consider your specific installation to determine where the
greatest risks of entrapment exist. Locate edge sensors and/or the photoelectric sensors accordingly. Be certain
that a sufficient number of sensors are used so that both directions of gate travel are properly guarded.

Section 5 —Detector Loop Installation
Detector Basics
The vehicle detector passes a small current flow through the “loop” which then becomes an inductive coil.
When a vehicle passes over a loop the detector senses the resultant drop in the inductance, and actuates the detector
Loop Configurations
Configurations differ depending on the application. In parking applications with our StrongArm operator (HTG 320), a loop
may be as small as 4ft x 6ft (1.2m x 1.8m). In traffic applications employing one of our sliding gate operators, or swing
gate operators, the smallest loop should not be less than six feet square.
Rules to Follow for Security Gate Applications
NOTE: Refer to the drawing on page 39.
1. The side of the loop closest to the gate shall be located at least 4 feet (1.2 meters) distant from its line of travel.
2. The shortest side of the loop shall be between 6 and 8 feet (1.8 and 2.4 meters) in length. The longest side of the loop
shall be between 6 and twenty 20ft (1.8 and 6m) in length. For applications that need to span a wide area, use several
smaller loops. Do not exceed a maximum of 200ft² of loop area (61m²) to only one detector.
3. In applications with multiple loops, keep each loop at least 6ft (1.8m) apart. This avoids “cross talk”. It is possible to
have loops closer together by selecting different frequencies. An advantage of using HySecurity model HY-5A
detectors is that problematic “cross talk” is not possible.
4. For greater sensitivity and less chance of false calls caused by the motion of the gate, it is better to use multiple
smaller loops, connected in a series circuit, to one detector instead of one large, single loop.
5. To avoid interference, keep loops at least 2 inches (5cm) above any reinforcing steel. Do not route loop wires with, or
in close proximity to, any other conductors, including other loop leads, unless shielded lead-in cable is used. Never
route high voltage circuits in PVC conduit near a loop.
6. Loop and lead-in wire should be one continuous piece. Avoid splices, if possible. If a splice is necessary for any
reason, “pot” the splice in epoxy or use heat shrink to ensure that the quality of the splice covering is the same as the
original wire jacket.
7. Use only number 14, 16, or 18 gauge stranded wire with a direct burial jacket. Cross linked polyethylene insulation
types, such as, XLPE or XHHW, will last much longer and are less prone to damage during installation than
conventional insulation types. Preformed loops can be used before road surfacing or under pavers.
8. Twist loose tails of lead-in wires tightly, approximately 10 turns per foot (10 times per 30cm).
© 2012 Installation and Reference Manual D0119 Rev. J
Section 5 —Detector Loop Installation, continued
9. Follow this guide for the correct number of turns in the loop;
12 to 20 sq. ft = 5 turns (3.6 to 6 sq. meters)
20 to 60 sq. ft. = 4 turns (6 to 18 sq. meters)
60 to 240 sq. ft. = 3 turns (18 to 73 sq. meters)
10. This guide is written from a design perspective, but installation workmanship practices are equally important to insure
proper operation and long loop life. The best way to insure a quality installation is to employ a professional installer
experienced with detector loops. A few important practices are:
The slot in the surface should be cut ¼" wide x 1½" deep (6.3mm x 38mm).
The corners of the cut must be at an angle or core drilled to relieve stress on the wires.
After the wire is installed, the slot must be completely backfilled with a non-hardening sealer.
NOTE: If the loop wires are able to move in the slot after the sealer has set, the detector may give false calls.
Detector Logic
HySecurity recommends that vehicle detectors be used for free open and obstruction sensing logic only. The exception is
in parking applications with our StrongArm operator (HTG 320) where detectors may be also used to close the gate. In
applications employing our swing, vertical lift, or sliding gate operators, closing logic cannot be used. Because of their
slower speeds, closing logic is a poor choice for security gate systems. Since there are several ways that the gate may be
left standing open and because there is a loss of safety, our circuit has not been designed to accommodate “detect to
close” logic.
Loop Diagnostics
The following tests cannot guarantee a functioning loop, but failure of either test means that the loop is definitely suspect,
even though it may still be functioning at the time.
Test #1:
Resistance of the loop and lead-in wire should not exceed 4.0 Ohms.
Test #2:
The resistance to earth, as measured with a 500V “Megger”, should be 100 Megohms or more. Loops may function at 10
Megohms or less but will not be reliable (e.g. when the ground is wet from rainfall). Low resistance indicates broken or
moisture saturated insulation. This is common if inappropriate wire insulation has been used.
See also Detector and Loop Fault Diagnostics on page 43 for additional tests that may be performed with HySecurity
HY-5A detector modules.

Section 3 —User Menu Functions
The User Menu functions shown in the chart on previous page are described in more detail on this page.
User 1 [Ct _] Close timer setting: Assign how many seconds before the open gate initiates closure. Keep the setting
at 0 if a hard-wired, push-button control device is being used.
NOTE: The CLOSE TIMER display does not appear when the HOLD TO CLOSE is set to 1.
User 2 [hC 0] Momentary Close: Set to 0 produces a gate closure when a momentary signal is transmitted.
Set to 1 if a constant hold to close signal, such as a push-button control, is being used. A setting of 1 also deactivates the
automatic close timer and causes its menu to disappear. You must set HC to 1 to comply with UL 325 Type D protection.*
User 3 [ho 0] Momentary Open: Similar to HOLD TO CLOSE, but configures the OPEN push button for a constanthold function. 0 = Momentary open signal. A setting of 1 means a constant hold open push button is required. You must
set HO to 1 to comply with UL 325 Type D protection.*
User 4 [AP 0] Power loss function: This menu item only appears if the operator is a DC battery-powered (UPS)
version. Configures the gate function that will occur if AC power fails.
User 5 [ro 0] Radio control option: Configures radio input for open only (0) or at setting 1 adds the capability for
radio input to close the gate when it is fully open.
User 6 [bF 2] Warn before operate: Controls the warn-before-operate buzzer and can be configured three ways:
Set to 1: Buzzer beeps for 3 seconds before gate motion begins and continues through entire gate travel.
Set to 2: Buzzer beeps for 3 seconds before gate motion begins and continues for 2 seconds of gate travel.
Set to 0: Buzzer is disabled. Set at 0 the buzzer will still beep when alerts, faults, errors, or entrapment are detected.
WARNING: Do NOT cut the wires to the buzzer or unplug it as the operator will not be in compliance with UL 325.
Failure to comply may result in serious injury or death.
User 7 [FA 0] Forced open Alert and automatic gate reposition: Intended for highly secure facilities. Set to 1, the
operator sounds the 3-second “warn before operate” buzzer alarm, and then initiates a closure if the gate is forced open
and the closed limit switch disengages. The motor restarts to secure the gate. If the gate does not fully close within 4
seconds, the motor turns off and the alert buzzer sounds for 30 seconds. The display shows .
User 8 [dA 0] Drift Closed Alert and automatic gate reposition: Set to 1, the operator sounds the 3-second “warn
before operate” buzzer alarm and initiates an open command if the gate is forced, or drifts, off the open limit switch. The
motor starts to reopen the gate. The motor runs for a maximum of 4 seconds and, if the gate is not fully open at the end of
this period, the buzzer sounds for 10 seconds. The display shows .
User 9 [PE 0] PE Alignment Mode: When set to 1, the operator serves as an aide in photo-eye transmitter/receiver
alignment. The buzzer chirps once when the emitter and receiver are not aligned. When the emitter and receiver are
aligned, the buzzer chirps twice. If they go out of alignment again, the buzzer will chirp once. The Alignment Mode is reset
with a close-limit input or reset input.
User 10 [CL 0] Clock and date set: The Smart Touch Controller is equipped with a 24 hour 365 day clock; thus events
of significance are logged and stamped with the time and date. This feature is useful to read historical operation data,
which can be accessed with a computer via the USB or RS232 port. To set or adjust the hour, minute, day or month, see
page 31.
User 11 [Ld 5] LCD Contrast set: Under some extreme high or low temperature conditions, it may be necessary to
adjust the contrast of the LCD display. The display is adjustable from 0-9 with a factory default setting of 5.
User 12 [dD 0] Extended Data Log: Set this item to 1 to record all gate operator open and close events, in addition to
the normal alert, fault and error logs. This parameter automatically resets to the default 0 (off) after 24 hours, which is
useful when experiencing intermittent problems. Set to 0, the Smart Touch Controller logs pertinent gate operator events
such as faults, errors, or menu manipulation.
*NOTE: For gate operators using Type D entrapment protection, an automatic closing device (such as a timer, loop
sensor, or similar device) shall not be employed.

Section 3 —Options for User Programmable Output Relays 1-3
The Smart Touch Controller is able to interface with many types of external devices through the use of three userprogrammable output relays. All of the output functions described below are accessible in the Installer Menu under the
selection [r1__], [r2__] and [r3__].
NOTE: The User Relays will operate normally to less than 18VDC.
Access the Installer Menu and program the output relays according to the following steps:
1. Select the relay you wish to use; either [r1__], [r2__] or [r3__].
2. Enter the appropriate function using the associated number listed in the table.
1. Close limit output: Creates an interlock signal to another operator’s interlock input, or simply to indicate that the
gate is secure. The relay is released when the fully-closed limit switch is tripped. The relay is energized when the
fully-closed limit is released.
2. Close limit pulse output: Used in a sequenced system to command a second machine to close. Generates a brief
pulsed output that occurs when the close limit is triggered.
3. Open limit output: Indicates a fully-opened position. This output becomes active when an open-limit is triggered
and releases when the open-limit is released.
4. Open limit pulse output: Trips a sequenced barrier arm gate operator to open. Generates a brief pulsed-output
when the open-limit is triggered. An additional pulse is also generated with any new open command even when the
gate is already fully-opened.
5. Warn before/during operate output: Controls an external warning device. This output operates at the same time
as the internal warn before operate buzzer.
6. Gate Lock output: Controls external solenoid locks or magnetic locks. In both directions of travel, this output is
activated about 7/10ths of a second before the operator starts moving the gate and remains active while moving as
well as for a few seconds after stopping.
7. Gate forced open output: Activated if the gate is forced off the closed limit switch and operator is not able to restore
the gate to full closed within four seconds. This alarm resets itself in 30 seconds.
8. Gate open too long output: Activates when the gate is open longer than a user-selected period of time. Adjustable
from 0 delay to 135 seconds delay in 15-second time increments. Installer Menu I30
9. Safety Mode Alert output: Activated when system is in the Safety Mode or the Entrapment Mode. Safety Mode
occurs upon an impact with an obstruction. Entrapment Mode means the gate is stopped and occurs if the internal
inherent sensor triggers while the system is in the Safety Mode.
10. Entrapment Mode Alert output: Activated only when system is in the Entrapment Mode.
11. Unauthorized Vehicle Entry output: Activated when one or more of the relay options has been programmed for
Tailgater activation. If that is the case, then while the gate remains unsecured and the OOLD and then the IOLD are
both tripped in that order for a second time without a renewed open command, a tailgater alert output is generated
on the configured relay to warn of an unauthorized entry. This can happen only if loops are installed properly. The
maximum distance (span) between loops is 8 feet (2.4 meters). This output releases when an access control input
signals open or the gate reaches the close limit position.
12. Outside Obstruction Vehicle Detector output: Interlocks an entry device to prevent pedestrian use. This output is
active whenever the OOLD is tripped.
13. Special output from “OOLD” only when gate is closed: Annunciates a vehicle or indicates loitering. Adjustable
from 0 delay to 135 seconds delay in 15-second time intervals. Installer Menu I31
14. Gate nearing full travel output: Applies to operators with RPM sensors only. Activated when the gate is three feet
from full travel in both the open and close directions. This output is used to reduce the sensitivity of a proximity
sensor near the ends of gate travel.
15. Gate Failure output: Activated to report occurrence of a problem. Indicates the system in an Error Mode, Fault
Mode or Entrapment Mode. If active, the gate is disabled.
16. Motor Running output: Active when the motor is running and the gate is in motion.
17. AC Power Failure output: This relay is normally energized and drops with loss of AC power. This output is also
active on DC machines when the battery charger is off.
18. DC Power Failure output: Activated when the battery power is very low, but the output ceases when the battery is
dead. The relay is triggered when the battery is less than 20 VoltsFlasher Relay: Controls flashing lights that pulse
once per second. The relay is constantly activating except when the open limit switch is triggered.

Section 3 —Options for User Programmable Output Relays 1-3, cont.
19. Flasher Relay: This output is intended to control flashing lights that pulse once per second. This relay is flashing all
the time, except when the open limit switch is triggered.
20. Free Exit Loop Vehicle Detector output: Available with software version h3.23 and higher. Active whenever the
ELD is tripped.
21. Inside Obstruction Vehicle Detector output (available in h3.23 and higher software): Activated when the Inside
Obstruction Vehicle Detector (IOLD) is tripped.
22. Reset/Shadow Loop Detector output: (Not used in SlideDriver.) Activated when the Reset or Shadow loop
detector (RLD/SLD) is tripped. Since this input it not used for a sliding gate, User Relay 22 can be used in
combination with a detector to perform the function of an arming-loop detector or annunciation-loop detector because
there is no associated gate control logic.
23. Gate Lock Output: Available with software version h3.25 or h4.23 and higher. Activates when the Lock Interlock
Input (Terminal No. 22) is active at the start of an Open cycle and remains on until the Lock Interlock releases or 10
seconds passes, whichever is sooner. Also, activates at the start of a Close cycle and releases 1 second after
reaching the Close limit..
24. Gate at Partial Open Position: Available with software version h3.25 and higher. Active when the partial open
position is reached or exceeded.
25. DC Power Alert: Deactivates when the software detects a low battery voltage (below 21VDC, but greater than
18VDC) for a duration of 2 seconds or more. To slow battery drain, accessory power loads are shed.
Clock Functions
Setting the Time and Date
The Smart Touch Controller is equipped with a 24 hour (military time), 365 day clock, so that significant events can be
logged and stamped with the time and date. This troubleshooting feature is useful to record key historical operational
data and a log of Alerts, Faults and Errors. The log can be accessed via the RS232 port. Optional software and a serial
communication cable are required in order to read this log. Contact your HySecurity distributor or HySecurity to purchase
software and download cable*.
1. To set or adjust the time, go the User menu item [] and push the SELECT button, so that [] blinks. Using
the PREVIOUS and/or NEXT buttons, change the setting from [] to 1, 2, 3 or 4 depending upon which setting
is to be changed. 1 = minutes / 2 = hours / 3 = days / 4 = months.
2. Push the SELECT button. The display will change to a blinking (adjustable) value. Different displays will appear
(see table below) based on which [] value is selected:
Run Mode
[ni 0–59]
[hr 0–23]
[dA 1-31]
[no 1-12]
3. Change the hour, minute, day or month to the desired value using the PREVIOUS and/or NEXT buttons, then
press the SELECT button to enter the change. [] will appear.
4. To change another setting, Press the SELECT button, (display will blink), then move to that setting using the
PREVIOUS and /or NEXT buttons and repeat steps 2 and 3 until the clock is fully set.
5. When finished, be sure [] is displayed, then push PROGRAM to exit.
6. A lithium disk battery supports the clock so that the time is not lost when the main power is off. This battery
should be replaced about every five years. Use a DL 2025 / DL 2032 or CR 2025 / 2032 battery.
* START Configuration and Diagnostic software is available at no charge from our website – A
serial communication cable and USB adaptor (Part MX000667) can be ordered through your HySecurity distributor.
