AL-IM SERIES WI-FI Gateway Module
The PL6100 lock contains an integral radio that transmits and receives data--via a private wireless signal-to an intermediate device called a Gateway module. In turn, this Interface Module is connected (either
wirelessly or wired) to a computer network such as a LAN or corporate Intranet. A Windows PC connected
to this network can control and program all PL6100 locks by the use of the DL-Window software (see
OI237 and OI352). With access rights to the software, one computer--or several--can control the software
and consequently can control the devices in the system. Several Gateway device models are available:
• "Wireless/Wired" AL-IM80211 Hardwired/Wireless Gateway Interface Module. Supplied with its own
class 2 transformer to supply power and supports connection to a network either using 802.11 or a
standard Ethernet cable. This "Wireless/Wired" Gateway module has two antennas, one for the
proprietary radio connection to the PL6100 and the other for 802.11 network transmissions. Ensure
adequate 802.11 coverage in the area where the "Wireless/Wired" Gateway is mounted. Supports up
to 63 Networx Locks. Ceiling- or wall-mountable.
• "Wired" AL-IME Hardwired Gateway Interface Module, supports up to 63 Networx Locks, connects
directly to a network using a standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable. This model has one antenna used to
transmit to the PL6100 via an Alarm Lock proprietary radio connection.. Ceiling- or wall-mountable.

Lock Design Overview
Why Use Proximity Cards and Fobs?
With ordinary door locks, the need to make physical copies of metal keys and distributing them can be a huge organizational and financial task -- and what will you do if someone causes a security breach by losing their key?
The answer lies in the advantage of "firmware". Firmware exists inside your Alarm Lock™ series lock, and can be
changed ("programmed") to suit your changing requirements. No more metal keys to distribute...instead, distribute a
proximity card or fob (for example ProxCards® or ProxKey® keyfobs). Lost cards or fobs can quickly and easily be deleted from the lock firmware. (Proximity cards and fobs are the firmware equivalent of metal keys; just present a valid
card to the reader to unlock the PL6100). Furthermore, proximity cards and fobs differ from metal keys in that they
are not duplicates---each card is "unique" to the lock, and therefore can easily be deleted from the lock firmware
without needing to be "in hand". One additional advantage is that proximity cards and fobs cannot be duplicated,
unlike ordinary metal keys.
Preparing to Program your Lock
As the PL6100 does not feature keypad buttons on its housing, programming your PL6100 (for example adding or
deleting proximity cards) is allowed only using a PC that is running the computer software application DL-Windows.
The PC must be connected to a computer network to allow the Gateway module to wirelessly communicate with the
lock's internal radio (see the Wireless Network Setup & DL-Windows Configuration Instructions, OI352 for more information about Gateway modules). DL-Windows can always be used as a back-up, restoring the information to your
PL6100 lock should the future need arise.
Once you unpack your PL6100 from the box, there is a specific procedure that must be followed for proper operation
(detailed in "First Time Power Up" on page 8). Turn the page and learn about the special terminology used with
your lock. Once that is clear, use the "First Time Power Up" procedure on page 8 to help you get up and running.

Terminology Used in this Manual
Before reading this section, you may wish to first read
the "Lock Design Overview" on page 5 for the basics.
For a description of all features, see the DL-Windows
User's Guide, OI237 or the Wireless Network Setup &
DL-Windows Configuration Instructions, OI352.
What is a Lock Program?
A Lock Program contains the instructions that a lock
uses to perform its various functions. Use DL-Windows
(defined below) to create a Lock Program on your computer, and then transfer and store the Lock Program in
the circuitry (firmware) contained inside the lock itself.
The Lock Program is essentially a computer database
file that maintains feature settings, proximity card data,
schedules, audit trails, etc. Using DL-Windows, Lock
Programs (called a "Lock Profile" in DL-Windows) can be
created with default information, edited on your PC, and
then sent to (or received from) locks.
The Lock Program consists of 4 areas: Prox Card Entries, Features, Time Zones, and Schedules, all defined below:
What are Prox Card Entries?
Because this lock does not have a keypad, proximity
cards and/or fobs can be added to the Lock Program to
allow entry (to allow the PL6100 to unlock). The proximity card entries are a part of the Lock Program, and the
Lock Program is stored in the lock circuitry (firmware)
awaiting the Users to present their programmed proximity cards.
ple, you can program the lock to allow Group 1 Users
access ONLY during specific business hours (unlock at
9AM, lock at noon for lunch, unlock at 1PM, and lock
again at 5PM--every weekday).
In addition, DL-Windows makes Schedule creation much
easier. In DL-Windows, use the "Schedule - TimeZone"
screen to first create an individual block of time called a
"TimeZone" (for example, "9AM to noon weekdays"). A
TimeZone is then linked to an event to make a Schedule
(for example, "unlock between 9AM and noon weekdays"). To make Scheduling easier, DL-Windows allows
TimeZones to be created, named and saved for the future, to be easily assigned to different events and added
to multiple locks as needed. For more details, see the
DL-Windows User's Guide, OI237 or the Wireless Network Setup & DL-Windows Configuration Instructions,
OI352.
What is a User?
A User is a person who is authorized to operate or make
certain programming changes to the lock. This User can
be anyone--from a one-time visitor in possession of a
temporary proximity card (who will almost certainly have
no authority to make changes) to the owner of the building in which the lock is installed (who will almost certainly
wish to have authority to make programming changes).
The PL Series locks can hold up to 5000 "basic" Users in
its programming memory, that means you can have up to
5000 Users each in possession of a proximity card or
fob.
What is a Programming Level?
What are Features?
Your lock is designed to support many options and functions. Using DL-Windows software (the Programmable
Features window), you can select the features you wish
to activate, such as if the lock will automatically adjust for
Daylight Saving Time in the spring and autumn, or if the
lock sounder should be disabled or enabled. Note: Features may only be added via DL-Windows
What are Schedules and TimeZones?
You can use DL-Windows to add simple "Schedules" to
your lock. Schedules are events (recorded lock activities) that are assigned to occur automatically at specific
times. For example, you can program the lock to allow
certain Users access ONLY on Wednesdays.
DL-Windows multiplies your flexibility, allowing the creation of many different combinations of Scheduled events
to suit the needs of your various installations. For exam-
6
With other Trilogy locks that possess keypads (such as
the PDL3000, ETPDL, etc.), the Programming Level defines the range of programming tasks a User is allowed
to perform using the keypad. However, the PL6100 lock
does not include a keypad, and changes to the PL6100
Lock Program are initiated only with DL-Windows.
Therefore, access to the DL-Windows computer program, with a valid password, is the sole means for determining who can make changes to the Lock Program.
The DL-Windows program and its access passwords
must be safeguarded, as it is essential to the security of the lock.
What is a User Number?
(User Number = Location Number = User Location =
"Slot" in Lock)
User Numbers are used primarily with DL-Windows, and
are significant within each individual lock only. PL Series
locks can hold up to 5000 proximity cards in its programming memory, and these cards can be thought of as sim-
Terminology Used in this Manual (cont'd)
ply a numbered list from 1 through 5000. Each entry in
the list is represented by a User Number, and proximity
card data is assigned to ("programmed into") each
"location" or "slot" in this list. When a proximity card is
assigned to a location, the card information is stored
within the Lock Program (firmware). Because Users are
physically given proximity cards, it is convenient to think
of each "location" as a "User", although technically the
User Number is only a location within the Lock Program.
In other words, it is easier to say "User 519" rather than
"The User in possession of the proximity card that is assigned to the User Location number 519".
Note: Where a User is located in this list--their User Location--is a commonly used description of their User
Number. Because of their similarities, a User Number,
User Location and Location Number can be used interchangeably. In some DL-Windows screens, the word
"Slot" is also used. All of these terms are meant to convey the same concept.
With other Trilogy locks that possess keypads, the User
Number defines the Programming Level for that User.
Because the PL6100 does not contain a keypad, all User
Numbers are "Basic Users", meaning each User is in
possession of a proximity card, and that card is either
enabled (allowing entry) or disabled (denying entry).
What is a Group?
With many lock applications, it is convenient for large
numbers of similar Users to be grouped together. All of
these Users might share some common attribute--for example, they may all work in the same department of a
facility, or may all work the same office hours. Placing
Users into Groups (by assigning them to a specific range
of User Numbers) allows large numbers of Users to be
controlled all at once rather than individually--saving time
and effort. A typical example involves enabling or disabling a Group at a certain time (assigning them to a
Schedule; for example, to allow Group "1" Users access
ONLY on Wednesdays).
Who are Users 297-300?
Proximity cards assigned to User Numbers 297, 298, 299
and 300 have special abilities, as follows:
For example, you wish to allow one-time access to a
temporary worker. Simply present proximity card 297
to the lock and give proximity card 300 to the temporary worker. Later, when the temporary worker presents proximity card 300 to the lock, the PL6100
unlocks and allows access for one time only. If later
the temporary worker re-presents his proximity card
300 to the lock, access will be denied. Later, if you
wish to grant the temporary worker access again, simply re-present proximity card 297 to the lock and proximity card 300 will be re-enabled (again for one time
only).
User 298 and User 299: Guard Tour
A Guard Tour card is used to log the movement of a
security guard as he or she makes rounds from one
assigned guard tour station to the next. Presenting the
User 299 proximity card provides precise verification
and accountability of a guard's movement by logging
the location with a time and date stamp in the Event
Log ("Audit Trail").
Note: Proximity cards assigned to User 298 and User
299 are not access cards (meaning these proximity
cards do NOT allow the security guard to pass through
the door).
User 300: One-Time-Only Service Card
This is the One-Time Only Service User Card enabled
by the proximity card assigned to User 297. See User
297: Quick Enable User 300 above.
What is DL-Windows?
DL-Windows is a Microsoft Windows-based computer
software program that allows you to program your
PL6100 security lock. You MUST use DL-Windows to
program your lock. With DL-Windows, you can quickly
create Lock Programs (called "Lock Profiles" in DLWindows) that allow you to add multiple ProxCards® and
ProxKey® keyfobs, retrieve event logs, create Schedules
and program many other features.
The benefit of DL-Windows is that it allows you to set up
all lock programming in advance (on your computer), and
then later send the information to the locks at your convenience. For more information about DL-Windows, see
OI237 and OI352.
User 297: Quick Enable User 300
The proximity card assigned to User Number 297 possesses the unique ability to enable the proximity card
assigned to User Number 300. When proximity card
297 is presented to the lock, proximity card 300 is enabled for one time use, allowing passage for one time
only. Once used, User 300's proximity card becomes
disabled.

Erase Memory Leads:
Yellow / Yellow wires - When shunted during power up, the Lock Program memory is erased (see
ERASE ALL PROGRAMMING below).
First Time Power Up
When powered for the first time (or the "Erase All Programming" procedure performed) but before it is
programmed by the wireless network Gateway, the PL6100 will remain unlocked, and will not lock until
the first valid proximity card is presented to the lock.
1. Unpack the lock from its factory packaging.
2. For models with a replaceable battery pack, install fresh batteries with attention to the correct polarity as indicated inside the plastic battery pack housing. Do not connect the batteries yet.
3. With battery power disconnected, short the two white wires (Remote Input wires) together for 10
seconds to ensure discharge of all capacitors. After 10 seconds, remove the short.
4. Plug in the (provided) male shunt connector into the yellow wire female connector.
5. With shunt connector connected, re-connect the battery pack. The lock will immediately sound 3
short beeps (if these 3 beeps are not heard, then restart at step 3).
6. The lock will then sound more slow beeps, 1 beep for every second it takes to clear the memory.
7. After 2 rapid beeps are heard and 2 green LED flashes are seen, unplug the shunt connector. The
lock is ready for programming.
Battery Replacement
When a valid proximity card is presented to the lock and the batteries are weak, the lock will beep for the
duration of the "Pass Time" programmed ("Pass Time" is the duration the lock remains unlocked after access is granted). For models with a replacable battery pack, use four (4) C-size 1.5 volt alkaline batteries.
For models with a sealed battery pack, contact your Alarm Lock dealer for a replacement battery pack.
Always replace weak batteries as soon as possible.
1. At the back of the lock, remove the lock housing screw and remove the cover.
2. Pull out the battery pack and quickly replace all 4 batteries - within 1 minute. For models with the
sealed battery pack, simply unplug the old battery pack and plug in the new battery pack.
3. If you do not hear the 3 beeps when power is re-applied, all programming and settings have been
retained, and the lock is ready for use. Go to step 5.
4. If you do hear 3 beeps when power is re-applied, wait 15 seconds for the LED to flash red 7 times
and 7 beeps will sound. Re-set the clock using DL-Windows.
5. Replace the back cover and tighten the screw.
8
Erase All Programming
Restore the "out of box" factory condition.
1. At the back of the lock, remove the lock housing screw and remove the cover.
2. Take out battery pack and remove battery power by disconnecting the battery pack plug.
3. With battery power disconnected, short the two white wires (Remote Input wires) together for 10
seconds to ensure discharge of all capacitors. After 10 seconds, remove the short.
4. Plug in the (provided) male shunt connector into the yellow wire female connector.
5. With shunt connector connected, re-connect the battery pack. The lock will immediately sound 3
short beeps (if these 3 beeps are not heard, then restart at step 3).
6. The lock will then sound more slow beeps, 1 beep for every second it takes to clear the memory.
7. Lock is ready for programming after 2 rapid beeps are heard and 2 green LED flashes are seen.
Power Up--Retain Existing Programming
Use when re-applying power to a lock already in use (you wish to retain the Lock Program), such as when
moving an existing lock to a new door. The lock must be dismantled and powered down for an extended
period.
1. Disconnect battery pack connector.
2. With battery power disconnected, short the two white wires (Remote Input wires) together for 10
seconds to ensure discharge of all capacitors.
3. Re-connect battery pack (lock will sound 3 short beeps). If these 3 beeps are not heard, then restart
at step 1. The lock will perform several self tests; when complete, 7 beeps and LED flashes will
sound. The lock is now ready for use.
Testing the Cards Entered
Verifying Proximity Card and Keyfob Access

alarm and remote communication to request security for burglary/break-in.
CLOCK
• REAL TIME CLOCK = An accurate built-in clock
that allows date/time stamping of events. The
clock can be slowed or speeded up to fine tune
long term accuracy to within three minutes per
year. Programmed only through DL-Windows.
• CLOCK SETTINGS = Printout includes date,
time, weekday, and clock speed.
DATE = Month, Day and Year entered as MMDDYY.
Programmed only through DL-Windows.
DAY OF WEEK = Sunday through Saturday (where 1
= Sunday and 7 = Saturday). Programmed only
through DL-Windows.
DEFAULT = The original settings that were set at the
factory; in other words, it is the lock's original factory condition when the lock was first taken out of
its box. The default settings are permanently encoded within the lock's fixed memory, and when the
lock is first started, or when power is removed and
re-applied (see pages 8-9), the original factory default settings are re-loaded and take effect.
DISABLE = Turn off.
DOWNLOAD = Send data to lock.
ENABLE = Turn on.
EVENTS = Recorded lock activity.
GROUP
• USER GROUP = Defining a User to specific
Groups, allows User entry when the Group is allowed entry. Programmed only through DLWindows.
• GROUP 1 DISARMS BURGLAR CONTROL = A
proximity card (previously assigned to Group 1)
presented to the lock can disarm an alarm control
panel during a predefined scheduled time (if the
proximity card is used outside of the scheduled
time, the alarm control panel will not disarm).
The alarm control panel must be armed through
other means, must be programmed to disarm
from an armed state only, and the zone input
must be programmed for input disarming. Programmed only through DL-Windows.
• GROUP 1 ENABLES GROUP 4 USERS = A
proximity card (previously assigned to Group 1)
presented to the lock during a predefined schedule allows access to Group 4 Users. Programmed only through DL-Windows.
• GROUP 1 PUTS UNIT IN PASSAGE = A prox14
imity card (previously assigned to Group 1) presented to the lock during a pre-defined schedule
unlocks the lock. Programmed only through DLWindows.
• ONE TIME ONLY FOR GROUP 3 USERS = If
selected in DL-Windows, allows Group 3 proximity cards to unlock the door one time only
(thereafter their proximity card becomes disabled). See OI237.
GUARD TOUR = Associated with User 298 and User
299. A Guard Tour card is used to log the movement of a security guard as he or she makes
rounds from one assigned guard tour station to the
next. Presenting the User 299 proximity card provides precise verification and accountability of a
guard's movement by logging the location with a
time and date stamp in the Event Log ("Audit
Trail"). Note: Proximity cards assigned to User
298 and User 299 are not access cards (meaning
these proximity cards do NOT allow the security
guard to pass through the protected door).
INTERNAL RELAY FUNCTIONS = The PL6100 internal relay can be programmed (via DL-Windows
only) for one or more functions. See page 11 for
more information.
LOG = See... AUDIT TRAIL.
PASSAGE = Allow anyone to pass through the door
without proximity cards or fob ("door is unlocked").
RELAY = Switched output allowing remote control of
other devices.
REMOTE INPUT = Allows entry into a restricted area
by pressing a button connected to the two REMOTE INPUT wires (two internal white wires) by
someone on the protected side of the door.
SCHEDULE = A programmed operation (enable/
disable, lock/unlock, etc.) on a specific day (Sunday
through Saturday) and time. Programmed only
through DL-Windows.
SCHEDULES, QUICK = Any one of four most common types of schedules can be programmed. Programmed only through DL-Windows.
TIME = Hours and Minutes in the HHMM format. Programmed only through DL-Windows.
TIME / DATE STAMP = A recorded date and time that
an event occurred.
TIMEOUT = Allowing or restricting operation for a
specified number of hours.
UPLOAD = Receive data from the lock.
USER = A person who has been provided with a proximity USER CARD for access through the door.
USER LOCKOUT, TOTAL = All Users to be locked
out (denied access). Proximity User Cards will not
unlock the PL6100.

product regardless of the cause of such loss or damage.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of incidental or consequential damages, or differentiate in their treatment of limitations of liability for ordinary or gross
negligence, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights
and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
