Product description
The FältCom ECII™ Flex is an alarm equipment for the PSTN network with built in duplex
speech communication designed for installation in lifts.
When a lift passenger presses the button for alarm/emergency signal, the ECII™ Flex automatically calls up an alarm centre or some other predefined alarm receiver. Voice communication
is established and the person in distress can talk to the staff at the alarm centre, from where
help will be dispatched.
Lift phone FältCom ECII™ Flex
Design and function
The ECII™ Flex design facilitates mounting. Loudspeaker, microphone, all the electronics, the
keys for programming and testing, as well as all connection points are integrated in one single
unit. This gives quick and easy installation as well high reliability in operation. The ECII™ Flex
speaker sound is easily adjusted with a trim potentiometer.
LED 1
(yellow)
Microphone
LED 2
(green)
On the ECII™ Flex front plate, there are two pictograms and two single coloured LED (yellow
and green), which are normally turned off. The left LED becomes yellow when an alarm call is
in progress and the right LED becomes green when the alarm has been acknowledged by the
receiver and a speech connection is established. The LED’s are also used to indicate program-
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 6 of 40
ming mode. The LED’s can be programmed to display other light sequences, see section Programming for more information.
The ECII™ Flex can be mounted behind the car operating panel (COP), on the panel with a
small front plate and frame or with a larger front plate and frame with an integrated alarm button.
The connection of the ECII™ Flex requires a two-wire cable to the alarm button in the lift. A
two-wire cable for connecting a standard analogue telephone line, use two unused wires in the
existing car cable is available. It is very important that the cable is fastened properly. For the
separate suspension cable there is a special mounting kit available, which includes the necessary mounting parts.
Multiple ECII™ Flex connection
The FältCom ECII™ Flex is designed to run on the existing telephone line power supply. Separate power supply is only required if several lift phones are connected to the same telephone
line or if the line voltage is below 25 VDC. See more under section Technical data.
Several lift phones may be connected to the same telephone line. When one of the lift phones
has established a connection, the other ones will not be able to use the line; a busy tone will
instead be heard in the loudspeaker and the yellow LED will flash five times. When the line
becomes free, the alarm call will be connected automatically.
Every ECII™ Flex requires a unique number on the line and the default number is 1. The number is used when calling in to the ECII™ Flex. The unit with number 1 will answer the call and
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 7 of 40
the others will listen in on the line and only pick up the line if that particular lift phone number is
chosen. Connect the lift phones in parallel and place the lift phone with number 1 at the far end
of the line. View section 6.13 for programming.
Installation of two or more FältCom ECII™ Flex on the same telephone line requires a separate
power supply to the unit. The ECII™ Flex outlet labelled DC is then connected to the lift’s existing emergency power supply via a special DC/DC converter. If no power supply is available
a separate emergency power source with a built-in battery can be used. Both products are
described in the product catalogue.
A total of nine ECII™ Flex may be connected using the same subscription. Check with the local
telephone line operator how many devices they support on the line. Ordinary telephones, fax
machines, modems or other types of alarm transmitters must not be connected to the same
telephone line because of the risk of disturbing the ECII™ Flex.
Programming and testing
On the back of the ECII™ Flex, there is a keypad used for programming call numbers, function
selection, and testing. All such settings are configured during the installation procedure and,
normally, no subsequent changes are required. It is also possible to remotely program the lift
phone using a standard phone or Windows-based software and a modem. Contact your local
distributor for more information.
The ECII™ Flex is capable of calling 6 alarm receivers or standard telephones with tone selection.
The ECII™ Flex can be programmed to send a test alarm/routine call to a specific test
alarm/routine call receiver at intervals of 1 – 30 days. This alarm tests the lift phone electronics and the telephone line itself. There is one primary and one secondary test receiver available.
The ECII™ Flex will answer an incoming call automatically after one ring signal. In this case,
tones are heard in the receiver when the call is connected.
If an emergency power supply is connected, the ECII™ Flex can automatically send an alarm
if the battery voltage is low and needs to be replaced. A special telephone number for the battery alarm can be programmed.
See section Programming for detailed programming instructions.
Remote programming and monitoring
Version 3 of the ECII™ Flex has improved remote programming and remote monitoring.
4.4.1
Trygga Hissen
Trygga Hissen is a remote monitoring service provided by FältCom. The ECII™ Flex and the
GSM Gateway together with FältComs own device management server offers monitor service
in terms of availability and alarm reception. Contact FältCom for more information.
4.4.2
Remote Programming SW
The Flex Programmer SW is available for remote programming of the ECII™ Flex settings. The
Flex Programmer can be used locally using the 122246 Flex Programming Cable connected to
a computer USB. Or remotely using a standard modem (recommended 102181 Modem available from FältCom).
In remote programming the Flex Programmer SW can be set to use either modem or DTMF
communication. If the connection to the ECII™ Flex is PSTN (land line) the recommenced setting is modem, this setting will allow faster connection and will enable file download, e.g.
speech files, to the unit. If the ECII™ Flex is connected on a GSM Gateway the recommended
setting is DMTF. This setting has a lower data rate and will not allow file download but has a
more stable connection. For more information please view the Flex Programmer manual.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 8 of 40
4.4.3
Remote Programming mobile
The ECII™ Flex can be programmed by using an app provided by FältCom free of charge for
Android or iPhone.
For Android, go to Google Play shop and search for “Flex Android”, download and install.
For iPhone, start the browser and enter the address: www.faltcom.se/flexconfig/index.html
Follow the steps in the app and view the help section for more information.
The app is write only, this means that the user can write and change the settings but not read
and view the current settings in the ECII™ Flex. This is due to restrictions in Android and iOS
not allowing DTMF reception in the application.
4.4.4
Alarm log
The ECII™ Flex will save the ten most recent emergency alarm calls in an alarm log. To retrieve and read the log use the Flex Programmer SW. The Flex Programmer will translate the
data from the ECII™ Flex to time and date of the alarm. This means that if the ECII™ Flex is
powered off the alarm time in the log will be incorrect.

Installation instructions
Only suitably qualified personnel may install the ECII™ Flex. Expertise, technical skill and correct equipment are required to ensure safe and efficient installation.
Mind your own safety when installing ECII™ Flex. You must never work in an open
lift shaft without a safety harness. Be extremely careful and break current if you work
close to a voltage of 230-400V, e.g. in the lift motor room. Never disconnect a cable
before you have made sure that it is not live.
Start by selecting a suitable place for the ECII™ Flex. Usually you can find an easily accessible
and yet well protected place behind the lift panel. Avoid installing ECII™ Flex in a corner or
behind anything that may reflect the sound. Such installation might lead to acoustic feedback
instability between the loudspeaker and the microphone. You must be able to access the existing suspension cable and the alarm button in the lift. Also keep in mind that you must be able
to access the back of the lift phone in order to connect cables and program functions. Normally
this is easier to do on the inside of the lift, before the lift phone is screw-mounted.
Make sure that you will avoid sawing or drilling through existing cabling when you make
any holes!
Frame mounting
1.
Mark and pre-drill the holes for the lift phone frame according to the enclosed drill template. Drill the holes for the cables to the alarm button and telephone connection according to the drill template.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 9 of 40
2.
Fasten the frame first and then the lift phone with the enclosed screws.
Note! Make sure the cables have been connected and
the lift phone has been programmed.
Mounting behind the car operating
panel
This alternative is only possible if there is already a prepared
space for a lift phone behind the button & display plate. The
ECII™ Flex version “COP” is specially designed for this type of
mounting.
Since the design of the panel may vary, we are not able to give
exact mounting instructions here.
Keep in mind that the microphone hole must be aligned
with a hole in the panel plate. It might become necessary
to drill a new hole.
For the best sound quality the gasket on the ECII™ Flex microphone and speaker should press firmly to the panel plate.
Connection to alarm button
1.
Route a two-wire cable (max 10 m) from the lift’s alarm
button and connect the wires to the ECII™ Flex terminal block at ”ALARM1” or “ALARM2”.
2.
Fasten the cable with cable ties or cable clips on the
outside of the lift.
Note that the alarm button in the lift car is normally double-breaking, i.e. made for two separate
connections, one of them usually connected to an alarm bell and the other one used for the
ECII™ Flex. The connections must have 1500V isolation. If they are not, or if the existing alarm
button only has one connection, the button must be replaced with another type or use a relay
to isolate the connectors.
Please note that the ECII™ Flex has a special version called “ALBU”, with an integrated alarm
button which can be used if there is no suitable alarm button available in the lift. That version
has a double breaking alarm button where one part (NC) is used for the ECII™ Flex and the
other part (NO) can be used for the alarm bell.
5.3.1
Alarm button function
Note that the alarm button may have a closing or breaking function. Breaking function is to be
preferred because the alarm loop will be monitored. By default the ECII™ Flex will auto-detect
the function of the alarm button 1 (from SW3.2.3), but the can be overridden by programming
a setting. See section Programming for more information.
5.3.2
Separate alarm button(s)
If there is no alarm button in the lift car, a separate button must be installed. Note that in order
to avoid misunderstandings, there should never be two alarm buttons in a lift car. It is possible
to connect extra alarm buttons to the unit, for instance on top of the lift car where a repair man
can be trapped.
5.3.3
Broken button detection
If the alarm button is continuously closed or open the ECII™ Flex will allow 15 emergency
alarms. The ECII™ Flex will then send a technical alarm (alarm code 5) and restrict the emergency alarms to once every 8 minutes. This function is default activated but can be deactivated,
please see the Programming section for more information.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 10 of 40
Connection to telephone line
The lift phone must be connected to a standard analogue telephone line. Normally it can also
be connected to an ISDN connection via a terminal adaptor. To minimize disturbance when
more than one ECII™ Flex is connected to the same telephone line it is recommended that they
are connected in parallel.
If the lift phone is connected to a standard telephone jack, the jack should be located in the lift
motor room or some other room with no admittance to unauthorized persons. This is important
to ensure the connection is not interrupted by mistake.
5.4.1
Connection to telephone switches and other devices
The ECII™ Flex can be connected to an extension in a telephone switch, provided that the
connection is analogue. Digital switches usually have at least one analogue connection, since
many alarms, faxes and modems require analogue communication. When connecting to a
telephone switch it must be verified that the switch also works in case of power failure.
The ECII™ Flex has a function, which enables it to dial a prefix, e.g. ‘0’, and then wait two
seconds for the dialling tone before proceeding with the alarm number. See section Programming for more information.
In some installations the telephone line might have an automatic dial or automatic connection.
This means that the telephone switch automatically dials or connects to a pre-programmed
number or extension. By programming the ECII™ Flex with a ‘*’ the lift phone accepts that the
telephone line manages to call up the pre-programmed number. Afterwards the ECII™ Flex
uses the telephone line for the intended functions. For more information read section Programming.
By connecting the ECII™ Flex to a GSM Gateway that simulates an analogue telephone line
the ECII™ Flex can easily send alarms via the GSM network. Contact your distributor for more
information. For all alarm communication via the GSM network it is very important to establish
that the communication system still works in case of power failure.
The ECII™ Flex can also be connected to a VoIP system; in this case a converter to an analogue line must be connected between the VoIP network and the ECII™ Flex. Sometimes adjustment of the equipment is needed to make sure that the length of the tones (DTMF) to and
from the lift phone are not affected by the equipment. Contact your distributor for more information. It is very important to establish that the telephone line still works in case of power failure.
5.4.2
Connection with separate suspension cable
Normally, a separate suspension cable of a round cable or flat cable type is used between the
ECII™ Flex and the telephone jack. A separate suspension cable usually gives better sound
quality and less interference. The required length of cable and mounting kit can be ordered with
the ECII™ Flex.
Note that the cable brackets included in the mounting kit must be used in order to guarantee
the function. The combined wall and lift-car brackets comprise bracket, screw, washer and cable ties.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 11 of 40
Check carefully that the cable will not be torn off, squeezed or chafed between the lift
car and shaft wall.
5.4.3
Flat cable type
1.
Check that the cable is long enough, allowing a margin, to reach the telephone jack.
2.
Fasten the cable securely until it reaches
the lift shaft wall.
3.
Secure the cable with a wall bracket according to the figure on this page.
4.
Fasten the lift-car bracket under the lift car
with screws, and attach the cable to the
bracket. Alternatively, the cable can be attached to a suitable beam on the lift car instead of the lift-car bracket.
5.
Route the cable to the ECII™ Flex and connect the wires to the terminals labelled
”TELE”.
6.
Fasten the cable with cable ties or cable
clips on the outside of the lift near the lift
phone.
7.
Connect the two central wires in the enclosed modular connector to the suspension cable wire, and connect the modular connector to the telephone jack in the machine room. Mark the connection so that it will not be removed by mistake.
5.4.4
Connection via existing cable
Warning! Ensure that you will not come into contact with any live power cables.
Normally, the existing lift cable (usually a big flat conductor cable) goes to a car cable box,
where you may find unused wires (if any) that can be used for the ECII™ Flex. It is important
that the wires to be used are next to each other in the lift cable in order to minimize disturbances.
In the event of bad sound quality a separate cable must be used.
1.
Connect a two-wire cable from the unused pair in the car cable box and draw the cable
to the terminal strip marked ”TELE”.
2.
Fasten the cable with cable ties or cable clips on the outside of the lift near the ECII™
Flex.
3.
Connect the suspension cable wire to the telephone jack in the machine room. Mark
the connection so that it cannot be removed by mistake.
Connection of voltage supply
Note that separate voltage supply is only required if more than one ECII™ Flex is to be connected to the same telephone line, or if single-mounted to a line voltage below 25 VDC, usually
an internal telephone switch (PABX).
The voltage supply must come from a source that will work even in case of a power failure, e.g.
the lift’s emergency lighting system, and the converter must have 1500V isolation from ground;
which is necessary in order to avoid disturbing the telecom station. The voltage supply to the
ECII™ Flex should be 5 VDC and must not exceed 7 VDC. If no existing emergency power
supply is available a separate emergency power source with a built-in battery can be used.
Contact your local distributor for more information.
1.
Connect a two-wire cable to the existing suspension cable wire for emergency lighting.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 12 of 40
Measure to verify the correct voltage between the pins.
2.
Connect the cable to the DC converter input.
3.
Connect the DC converter to the lift phone outlet marked ”DC”.
4.
Connect the DC converter on the outside of the lift and fasten the cable with cable ties
or cable clips.
Connection to loop amplifier
To enable passengers with impaired hearing to communicate with the alarm centre a loop
amplifier can be connected to the ECII™ Flex. Contact your local distributor for information
about approved loop amplifiers that can be used with ECII™ Flex.
Connect the output marked “LOOP AMP” to the loop amplifier. The loop amplifier must work
during power failure. Connect it to a power supply that is known to work during power failure.
Connection of external pictogram
It is possible to connect external lamps to indicate alarm status on the lift phone according to
EN81:70 using the system component Pictogram Driver. It consists of a DC-converter and drive
circuits for external lamps. It is connected to the output marked “DC”, to 12V emergency power
and to the external lamps. Contact your distributor for more information.
Connection to Intercom (art. 102153-01)
For communication between the machine room and the ECII™ Flex use the ECII Intercom Unit
(art. 102153-01). Mount the Intercom Unit in the machine room and connect the power and
telephone line. Connect the ECII™ Flex in the lift car to the LIFT CAR output on the Intercom
Unit. Please view the Intercom installation instruction for more information.
Connection to additional Alarm buttons ALBU (art.
102142 and 252142)
For additional alarm buttons on top and below the lift car use the Technician alarm button (art.
102142). Mount the ALBU on an appropriate location and connect it to the “ALARM 2” input on
the ECII™ Flex. If using two Alarm Buttons they need to be connected in series; the Alarm
Buttons are always Normally Closed.
To activate the “ALARM 2” input for the Alarm Button, program:
Connection to Speaker Unit (art. 142230)
For additional microphone and speaker on top and below the lift car use the FältCom Flex
Speaker Unit (art. 142230). Mount the Speaker Unit on an appropriate location and connect it
to the ECII™ Flex AUX input using the Cat5 cable, use the IN connector on the Speaker Unit.
Please note that the cable must be ordered separately depending on the required length of the
cable. The alarm input on the ECII™ Flex is activate by default.

Programming
Programming of alarm numbers, alarm codes and various functions can be affected by using
the keypad on the reverse of the ECII™ Flex, by calling the unit using a standard telephone or
by using suitable Windows-based software. This section describes programming using the keypad and standard telephone. All programmed settings are stored in memory even if the ECII™
Flex is disconnected from the telephone line.
The keys on the keyboard have the following functions:
Programming – Starts and ends all programming sequences.
Sequence receiver – Used when programming more than 2 alarm receivers, receivers 3-6.
Alarm receiver 1 – Phone number to alarm receiver 1.
Alarm receiver 2 – Phone number to alarm receiver 2.
Alarm code 1 – Used for alarm receiver 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Alarm code 2 – Used for alarm receiver 2.
The other keys have the same function as on a standard telephone.
Configuration settings
The ECII™ Flex can be programmed only after it has been set to programming mode. The
telephone line must be supplied with current for the keys to be activated. Each time the keys
are pressed in programming mode a short tone is heard and after each programming sequence
there is a 4-tone for successful and a low 1-tone for unsuccessful programming.
In order for the ECII™ Flex to be programmed it has to be:
1) Connected to the telephone line (analogue line, not ISDN)
2) Connected to the alarm button (Normally Closed or Normally Open), and
3) Set the device in programming mode.
Programming can be initiated approximately 20 sec. after the ECII™ Flex has been connected to the telephone line. Upon completion of each programming sequence a 4-tone confirms that the ECII™ Flex has accepted the programming. If no button is pushed during a time

Alarm input setting
All three alarm inputs of the ECII™ Flex can be configured. Alarm input 1 is designed for the
alarm button in the car and can be configured to normally open or normally closed. Alarm input
2 and 3 (serial interface labelled “AUX”) can be configured for normally open/closed push button
and also if the alarm shall be defined as an emergency alarm, technical alarm or if the input
signal shall be defined as a filtering signal for alarm input 1.
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex

Examples of technical alarms are sum alarms from the lift controller or sensors from the lift car
doors and more.
Note: If the alarm input is connected to the lift controller or other external devices the connection
must be separated using a relay connection.
Setting of alarm input 1
By default the alarm input 1 is auto-detecting. When the ECII™ Flex is powered up or when
setting default settings the unit will automatically set the alarm input 1 to the same function as
the installed alarm button. The auto-detect setting can be overridden by programming N/O or
N/C forcing the ECII™ Flex to use this setting.
If the ECII™ Flex version with integrated alarm button is used it is already connected to the lift
phone alarm input. If the alarm button has normally open function the ECII™ Flex must be
programmed accordingly:

Automatic test alarm/routine call
This function calls a test alarm/routine call receiver to verify the connection between the
ECII™ Flex and the alarm receiver. Automatic test alarm/routine call shall only be programmed if the ECII™ Flex is connected to an alarm central, the alarm central can verify that
the incoming test alarms/routine calls are correct. A test alarm/routine call is silent; no tones
are heard in the lift.
When the test alarm/routine call function is activated the first test alarm/routine call is sent 5
minutes after exiting programming mode and the following test alarm/routine call is sent 10
hours after the first. The third and following test alarm/routine call are sent every N x 24 hours
where N is the test alarm/routine call interval in days. Note that the automatic test counter is
reset every time an automatic test related parameter is changed and when the power is disconnected from the ECII™ Flex. If the ECII™ Flex has been out of power and the power returns it will send the next test alarm/routine call after 10 hours.
If a test alarm/routine call fails the next attempt is made after 10 minutes. In total 10 attempts
are made. If a test alarm/routine call is received for instance in the third attempt the next test
alarm/routine call will be sent N x 24 hours after the last successful attempt. This means that
the ECII™ Flex automatically distributes the test alarms/routine calls to a time when the telephone line of the alarm receiver is normally available.

Info Alarm will send a silent alarm after an emergency alarm using the alarm type 89d (59h).
This alarm can be used to access a log in an alarm receiver if the lift call has been sent to a
regular telephone. The Info alarm will use the specified Info Alarm code or if not programmed
it will use the Alarm Code 1, then add the alarm type of the alarm input, e.g.:
Lift alarm call to number 123 456 using alarm code 789 and alarm type 10. The Info alarm
receiver is programmed to call 654 321 but no code. After the lift alarm the Info alarm will then
call receiver 654 321 using alarm code 78910 and alarm type 89.
The Info Alarm is activated by programming:
<Telephone number (max 20 digits)>

Alarm reception
All tone dialling telephones (units with the keys  and #) can work as simple alarm receivers.
The telephone keypad is used to control alarm reception and to acknowledge the alarm unless the need for acknowledgment has been deactivated.
The most important key to learn is 4, used to acknowledge the alarm and set up the call.
Alarm call
When answering an incoming alarm call, the ECII™ Flex will play message 2 if that has been
programmed or play a 4-tone (”chirp”) for the receiver. The message or tone is played every 5
seconds until the alarm is acknowledged. If the alarm receiver has not answered within 60
seconds the ECII™ Flex will automatically disconnect and call the next alarm number. The
ECII™ Flex waits 10 seconds before dialling the next alarm number.
Acknowledging an alarm
Acknowledge the alarm with 4, ACKNOWLEDGE. A duplex voice communication call is then
set up; as in a normal telephone call.
A call will be disconnected automatically three minutes after the last key pressing, i.e. three
minutes after the call is acknowledged. With thirty seconds to disconnection, a warning tone
will be heard. To prolong the call, press 4, ACKNOWLEDGE.
If functions “Simplified acknowledge” (320) is used the alarm is acknowledged by pressing any
digit on the telephone keypad. If “Disconnected acknowledge” (321 or 323) are used the alarm
is acknowledged automatically upon connecting the call.
Ending a call
End the alarm call by pressing 0, END. If the alarm is ended with time disconnection and the
call is not acknowledged the ECII™ Flex will make a new alarm call to the next alarm receiver.
Please note that this will only happen when alarms are sent to a standard telephone. When
sending alarms to an automatic alarm centre no further calls will be made after the alarm has
been acknowledged.
If functions “Simplified acknowledge” (320) or “Disconnected acknowledge” (321, 323) are used
162187 Manual FältCom ECII™ Flex
Page 33 of 40
the alarm is disconnected by pressing , END (320, 321, 323). No more calls will be made.
Repeat Message 2
If the receiver wants to hear the recorded message 2 once again press 1, REPEAT MESSAGE
2. The message can be repeated at any time during the call.
Forwarding a call
If you want to forward the alarm to the next alarm receiver, press 2, FORWARD. The alarm is
then closed, and the ECII™ Flex will call the next programmed alarm receiver. Please note that
the alarm call has to be acknowledged before forwarding the call.
Termination of active alarm mode
If the function active alarm mode is activated and the product is in active alarm mode, i.e.
there has been an alarm and the ECII™ Flex is open for incoming calls, you can close the incoming calls window by pressing the key 5, TERMINATE ALARM MODE. The call is automatically disconnected.
Speech switching
If the automatic speech switching is not satisfactory, you can change to manual speech switching 8, SIMPLEX TALK and 7, SIMPLEX LISTEN. Revert to automatic speech switching by
pressing 4, ACKNOWLEDGE.
