1. Introduction

The PTI Falcon is a multi-point access control system capable of hosting an unlimited number of remote keypads or door alarm controllers. Multiple building sections are supported with multiple units per section. In addition, units may be subdivided with a subsection designation. Each unit may be classified into one of eight different access zones, which allows specified entry hours and entry points.

Access zone hours may be specified separately for each day of the week and holidays. Up to thirty-two preprogrammed holiday dates are also supported. Any individual unit code may be locked out with a few simple keystrokes. All access activity is logged on a standard computer style printer using standard paper. When used with the optional door alarm system, all door activity is also logged. The PTI

Falcon also has built-in rechargeable batteries that allow the programming unit to remain completely operational during a power failure. The simple menu driven programming is easily mastered using the thirty- two character alphanumeric display.

The PTI Falcon contains an optional RS232C serial interface that allows the unit to be completely programmed and controlled by a Personal Computer. The PTI

Falcon is capable of interfacing to most major Self Storage management software packages. PTI Remote Management software allows total control of the PTI Falcon system by telephone from any remote location.

The PTI Falcon also supports a complete individual door alarm system. Unlike many competitive systems, the battery backup option allows the PTI Falcon to provide reliable alarm operation even hours after a complete power failure.

The PTI remote keypad contains a back lit silicone rubber booted keypad which is highly weather resistant and a back lit wide temperature liquid crystal display capable of displaying thirty two characters of alphanumeric data. The keypad unit can be used in total darkness with no exterior lighting required. The unique display allows the customer to be given instructions on how to use the keypad as well as a reason for denial in the case of customer lockout. Keypad options include a built-in intercom speaker, a built-in security camera, and a built-in card reader, which allows the customer to gain access by using one of his own magnetic stripe credit cards.

All exterior units are made of an all aluminum weather tight enclosure with stainless steel inserts and screws, resulting in an industrial rather than commercial grade product.

3. Equipment Overview

3.1 The Base Unit

The Base Unit serves as the main programming console for the PTI Falcon access control system. The picture to the right shows the front view of the PTI

Falcon Base Unit.

At the top of the unit there is a two-line liquid crystal display. When the display is not being used for programming it will display the current date and time. The unit contains a keypad in a standard telephone arrangement. Often during programming, you will be asked a "Yes or No" question. When responding, the "*" key indicates "No" and the "#" key indicates "Yes". If you make a mistake when entering data, the "*" key can also be used to backup or rubout one character at a time. When the correct data has been keyed in, the "#" key serves as the <Enter> key to save the data.

This is the rear view of the PTI Falcon Base Unit. The left most connector (RS485) is a 9-pin female connector and connects to the remote keypads and other remote devices. If door alarms are in use, the alarm relay contacts are also present on this connector. The center connector is a 9-pin male connector for the RS232C serial port. This is for connecting a computer with the PTI interface cable. The long connector on the right is a twenty-five pin female which connects a standard parallel Dot Matrix printer to the PTI Falcon. The power switch next to the printer connector turns the unit on and off. The connector on the far right is for the external power supply.

Rev. 4.41

January 30, 2004

The green indicator light on the front of the base unit indicates that power is being supplied from the external power supply. When the Falcon is on and the green indicator is not on, the system is operating on internal battery power.

The Falcon is powered by an external power pack similar to those used by laptop computers. This power pack has a universal input; it can be used anywhere in the world simply by changing the power cord plugged in to it. It takes the available line power and converts it to 12VDC.

WARNING: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK ALWAYS UNPLUG THE POWER

CORD FROM THE WALL OUTLET FIRST, BEFORE UNPLUGGING THE CORD

FROM THE POWER PACK OR THE FALCON. ALWAYS PLUG THE POWER

CORD INTO THE BACK OF THE PTI FALCON BEFORE PLUGGING THE

OTHER END INTO A WALL OUTLET.

3.2 The Remote Keypad

A PTI Falcon access control system may contain multiple remote keypads such as the one illustrated on the right. The number of remote keypads will depend on the number of entry points you wish to control at the property.

The Remote Keypad unit contains a silicon rubber booted keypad in a typical telephone style arrangement. The keypad contains LED's behind the rubber boot to light the keypad for night use. These lights are continuously on, although they are not bright enough to be seen in daylight. The Remote

Keypad unit also contains a liquid crystal display

(LCD). The display is fully alphanumeric which allows complete text to be displayed rather than just numbers. The LCD also contains an LED panel behind it for nighttime viewing. This light comes on when the "*" key is pressed on the keypad to begin a transaction. The housing for all PTI keypads and card readers are all aluminum to resist rusting. To use the Remote Keypad to access the property simply press the star key (*) then your access code and then the pound key (#).

3.3 The Remote Keypad with Intercom

The Remote Keypad with built in intercom can be used at any access point on the property and gives your customers quick access to the site manager if they have any questions or problems.

3.4 The CodeXpress Card Reader

The PTI CodeXpress card reader access control allows the operator to provide card access for the user without carrying the responsibility of purchasing, renting and recouping cards for the facility. PTI carries a preprogrammed magnetic stripe card for those facilities that would like to keep a stock of pre-programmed cards for their customers. PTI recommends asking the customer to select a card within their possession that has a magnetic stripe to be used as their access control card for your property. Assure the customer that the disclosure of the account number on the card is not at risk because the system software mathematically changes the account number into a code usable with the

Falcon. Most cards with a magnetic stripe will work. The code corresponding to the card must be entered into the Falcon as the customer's access code.

12 PTI Falcon Installation and Operation Manual

© 2000-2002, PTI Integrated Systems

Rev. 4.41

January 30, 2004

To determine the code for a particular card, insert the card chosen for access into the card reader. The Falcon will print a code (unknown code 1476537876) that represents that card. Take the number from the printout and enter it as the access code for the desired unit. The customer can also use the keypad for access if they

use the code produced by their card if they choose.

3.5 Relay Board

The PTI 8-channel relay board has 8 Form C relay outputs on it and can be used to control a variety of devices. Some examples are elevators, lights and perimeter beams. This board also has

8 door alarm channels on it. The PTI 8-channel relay board contains a four digit LCD in the upper left corner of the circuit board for diagnostic messages that are displayed on a continuous basis. When using Lighting Controls/Relay

Controls each zone must have its own relay to activate.

3.6 2-Channel Relay board/Wiegand device adaptor

The PTI 2-channel relay board can also be used to control elevators, lights, perimeter beams and many other relay controlled devices. This board also has an input for access devices that obey the

Wiegand communications protocol. Some examples of these devices are: Proximity card readers, Retinal scanners and thumb print identifiers with many more devices to come in the future.

3.7 Connecting Cables

The PTI Falcon requires a few connecting cables for proper operation.

When installation is complete and you are ready to turn on the system, the female end of the power cord will plug into the power outlet on the 12-volt DC power pack. The small connector plugs into the

Falcon and can be tightened down to prevent it from coming loose. The male end of the power cord will plug into an AC outlet.

WARNING: TO AVOID SHOCK HAZARD, NEVER

PLUG THE MALE END OF THE POWER CORD

INTO A WALL OUTLET WITH THE FEMALE END

EXPOSED!

All of the remote keypads and other devices communicate with the PTI Falcon through the remote patch cord. This cord consists of a 9 pin male connector that plugs into the PTI Falcon. A six position terminal block is on the other end. The first three connectors are for the field wiring from the remote devices. The other three connectors are relay contacts for use with the PTI door alarm system. The current max on the relay is 2A. If a high power siren is used a secondary relay must be used to handle the current.

If you have purchased a printer for the PTI Falcon, it will come with a standard computer style printer cable. The printer cable has a twenty-five pin to 36-pin male connector on each end. The 25-pin end plugs into the printer connector on the back of the base unit, and the other end plugs into the printer.

The PTI Falcon has a computer interface for transferring information. The interface cable will be similar to the one pictured to the right.

The PTI Falcon end of the cable will have a nine pin female connector and will plug into the nine pin serial port connector on the back of the PTI Falcon base unit. The other end of the cable will have a 9 pin female connector for connecting to the serial port on your computer. This interface port can also be connected to an external modem for connecting to the PTI Falcon at a remote site.

3.8 Accessories

PTI’s gooseneck stands are compatible with all PTI keypads and designed to be used drive up applications. The mounting plate has a hole that allows the wiring to be fed up through the stand from conduit. The mounting holes are tapped for an 8-32 machine screw. The bottom plate of the gooseneck stand contains a center conduit hole and four mounting holes arranged on 4-inch centers. There is a cover plate that slides down over the bottom plate after mounting to cover the mounting bolts.

It is highly recommended that the gooseneck stand be electrically grounded to minimize the impact of lightning and static atmospheric charge on the keypad. It is also recommended that the installer seal the conduit hole inside the stand to prevent moisture from entering the Remote Keypad Unit.

PTI offers two versions of the gooseneck stand with 12” and 21” offsets.

A wall mounted stand is also available.

3.9 Individual Door Alarms

The PTI Falcon supports the use of PTI individual door alarms. PTI door alarms require the use of door alarm multiplexer (mux) boxes, such as the one pictured to the right. A mux box contains a master circuit board capable of multiplexing up to

96 doors. Mux boxes are available to the nearest multiple of sixteen doors up to 96. Each building on the property must have its own multiplexer box or boxes. Multiplexer boxes are connected to the PTI

Falcon base unit through the same 3-wire RS485 interface as the remote keypads.

Each alarmed door must have a magnetic door switch mounted on the door. The

Mux box will connect to one wire from each switch in addition to a common wire that connects to all switches. 50-conductor telephone cable is often used for the individual door wiring. In addition to the door wiring and communication wiring, each master mux board requires 12V power in order for the board to operate. A single

12V power supply with battery backup is often used to power all of the multiplexer boxes from a central point. This allows the entire field wiring to be low voltage. Each mux box contains a tamper switch to detect break-ins to the mux box itself. Optional

9V battery connections allow for local battery operation of each box this is useful for testing of the system before the office is complete.

3.10 PTI Site Graphics for Windows

PTI Site Graphics provides a full color image of your facility with rental units colorcoded according to current status. The image will scan horizontally, vertically, and diagonally as required so that all areas of the property are regularly displayed on the color monitor. The Site Graphics will also zoom in on activity at any unit as it happens. The access events will be displayed across the lower part of the monitor screen. These lines of text are duplicates of the text that is logged on the printer.

There are six primary colors for rental units that are based on the status of the units. The colors are set to the classic PTI Graphics color scheme but can be changes to any color with ease. The Door Open and Door Alarm colors will not function unless the rental unit is wired with PTI individual door alarms.

The image movement can be controlled with any mouse device. A RF wireless is recommended so you can be further away from the computer and still stop and start the panning or change any configuration settings. Manual panning is done by dragging and dropping the image or clicking on the onscreen Up, Down, Left or

Right buttons. If the Stop button is clicked, the image will remain still. This allows the use of the image as a property map to direct a customer to their unit.

Site graphics also includes the Self Storage Industries first and only Site Builder program. The Site Builder allows the end user to draw the site map them self’s or make changes to units, like numbering changes and subdividing rental units.

3.11 Falcon 2000 Access Management software

Falcon 2000 is a 32-bit Microsoft Access Database application that can control the

PTI Falcon system from a PC. The PC may be connected directly to the Falcon using a RS-232 serial port, or may be miles away with the connection established using modems on ordinary phone lines. The Falcon 2000 not only programs the

PTI Falcon from a remote location, but it also allows the remote location to retrieve the access log for the property from the Falcon and print it (or save it on disk) at the remote office. It is even possible to open the gate remotely.

It is ideal for those facilities that cannot support a full time manager, especially when used in combination with PTI individual door alarms. To request a demo of the Falcon 2000 Access Management Software contact our sales staff at

(800) 331-6224 or visit www.ptiaccess.com

4. Installation

4.1 Installation Layout Overview

Before starting the installation of your PTI Falcon system you must first determine how the system will be configured. The location and connection method of system components is critical to the security of your site. For UL

installations, the gate operator or door strike that allows access to the

secure area must be triggered by a relay located inside the secure area.

This prevents someone from gaining access to your facility by tampering with the external keypad or card reader.

Each remote device is equipped with a tamper sensor that will sound the alarm if the housing for the remote device is opened. When the housing is opened, a remote keypad or card reader will become inoperable. Remote door alarm units will continue to function even with the alarm active. This allows the system to monitor doors even when the system is in the alarm state. DO NOT BYPASS

THE TAMPER DEVICE. The tamper devices can be temporarily bypassed for testing only during installation. Make sure the bypass is removed before putting the system in operation.

Each remote device requires a minimum of five (5) conductors for proper operation: Power +, Power -, Data +, Data – and Ground. The recommended wiring method is to use 18AWG four (4) conductor twisted pair wire with an overall shield. The drain wire on the shield acts as the required grounding conductor. This conductor helps protect the system from unwanted RF interference and power surges caused by nearby lightning or other sources.

The Falcon base unit provides the Data +, Data -, and Ground wires from the terminal block supplied by PTI. The Power + and Power – wires come from an external power supply. Though the remote devices will function with 12-18VAC,

PTI recommends the use of a 12VDC power supply. The number of remote devices being used will determine the required current output of the power supply. To calculate the required current, add up the maximum current for each device. Refer to section 4.2.1.3 for a typical wiring diagram for the power supply.

When using intercoms, an additional cable of two (2) or three (3) 18AWG conductors will be required depending on the type of intercom used. Refer to section 4.2.1.1 for the intercom wiring requirements.

4.2.1 Wiring

4.2.1.1 Recommended Wire Type

For the remote units power and data, PTI recommends the use of an 18 AWG – four (4) conductor twisted pair shielded cable with a ground wire. The Belden wire code is 9418. The colors in this cable are red, black, white, green and a bare ground wire. This cable can be used to deliver the power and data wires to the device. Refer to the diagrams in section 4.2 for the wiring connections.

For gate operator or door strike connections, PTI recommends the use of a separate 18AWG – Two (2) conductor cable. For UL installations, the remote device that triggers a gate or door strike must be located inside the secure area.

When using intercoms, an additional cable of two (2) or three (3) conductors will be required depending on the type of intercom used. This wire should be

18AWG two (2) or three (3) conductor with an overall shield for best operation.

The following table lists the type of wire required for various intercom systems.

(2) Connect the Data Communication Wires to the keypad terminal TS2 next using the remaining conductors. Terminate the wires as follows:

Terminal: Connection:

TS2 – Pin 1 Data + (White Wire)

TS2 – Pin 2 Protective Shield (Bare Wire)

TS2 – Pin 3 Data – (Green Wire)

(3) (Optional) Install the relay contact wires to the device to be controlled; both normally open and normally closed relay contacts are available on the following terminals: A separate cable of the appropriate size should be used.

Consult the device manual for this.

Terminal: Connection:

TS2 – Pin 4 Relay Normally Open Contact

TS2 – Pin 5 Relay Common

TS2 – Pin 6 Relay Normally Closed Contact

Do not connect a gate operator or door strike to a keypad that is located outside the area it secures. This will prevent someone from gaining access to your site through vandalism.

Most electric gate operators require a normally open contact (pins 4 & 5).

Some electric door strikes require a normally closed contact (pins 5 & 6). IF door strikes are used it is recommended that they be 12V DC. A shunting diode must then be installed across the solenoid to prevent ground spikes from disrupting the keypad communication. DO NOT PLACE A DIODE ACROSS

AC STRIKES, AS IT WILL SHORT OUT THE POWER SUPPLY FOR THE

STRIKE.

WARNING: WIRING THE RELAY TO THE OPERATING DEVICE WILL

INTRODUCE THE OPERATING DEVICE CONTROL VOLTAGE INTO THE

REMOTE KEYPAD HOUSING. THE INSTALLER MUST VERIFY THAT THIS

IS NOT HIGH VOLTAGE! THE PTI KEYPAD IS NOT DESIGNED FOR THE

PRESENCE OF HIGH VOLTAGE WITHIN THE KEYPAD CASE. RELAY

VOLTAGE MUST NOT EXCEED 45 VOLTS.

4.2.1.3 Typical Wiring Scheme

See enlargement on next page

NOTE: UL installations require door strikes to be activated by a device located inside the secure area.

With the RS485 communication scheme, a keypad can be located as far as 4000 feet from the base unit, which is why shielded twisted pair cable with ground wire is required for optimal operation. You must also consider voltage drops across long lengths of wire. The farther the devices are from the office, the larger the gauge of wire that must be used. There is a voltage drop calculation document located at http://www.ptiaccess.com/download/quick5.html

THE SYSTEM WILL NOT OPERATE PROPERLY IF THE VOLTAGE IS BELOW 12VDC.

Extreme care should be taken when choosing a power supply voltage and current rating. Long distance runs may require a remote power supply to be installed to ensure proper operation.

4.2.2 Keypad Switches

The keypad switches must be properly set. The default setup for the PTI Falcon system considers Odd numbered keypads to be Entrance keypads and Even numbered keypads to be Exit keypads. Function 18 can be used to override these settings if necessary. The device address for each keypad is set with the red rotary switch. DIP switch number five adds 10 to the number selected on the rotary switch and should be turned on whenever you need to use address 10 through 19 on remotes. Switch 6 is similar to switch 5 except it adds 20 to the number selected on the rotary switch this should be used for remote addresses 20 - 31. It is possible to set the device address to any value from 0 – 39. Currently the Falcon can only communicate to remotes addressed 1 – 21 and 23 – 31, 0 and 22 are reserved for the Falcon.

31 is the highest remote number that the Falcon can communicate without utilizing an ‘Expansion Board’.

Finally, you must set the position of the eight DIP switches as needed for proper keypad operation. The switch functions are summarized in the following table:

Switch 1 OFF = echo code on display

Switch 2 OFF = European Dates off

Switch 3 OFF = Tamper Enabled

Switch 4 OFF = 9600 Baud

Switch 5 OFF = add zero to unit number

Switch 6 OFF = add zero to unit number

Switch 7 OFF = not used

ON = no echo

ON = European Dates on

ON = Tamper Disabled

ON = 1200 baud

ON = add ten

ON = add twenty

ON = not used

Switch 8 OFF = high comm. Line impedance ON = low

Switch 1 When Switch 1 is turned ON, the display will show XXXXXXXX’s instead of 12345678 the actual numbers being pressed on the touchpad. This may be set to your individual preference.

Switch 2 When Switch 2 is turned ON, the date will be displayed in DD/MM/YY instead of

MM/DD/YY.

Switch 3 When Switch 3 is turned ON, the Tamper feature is enabled. When this is enabled you will need to install a tamper device on the actual keypad and connect the NO/COM of your tamper devices’ dry contacts to the corresponding pins on our keypad. (Please refer to your keypad-

wiring diagram for the correct pins on TS1)

Switch 4 When Switch 3 is turned ON, the keypads communication speed is set to 1200 Bps the default for all PTI equipment manufactured after 01/2000 is 9600 Bps. The Falcons communication speed is defined in Function 14 .

Switch 5 is used to add 10 to the number selected on the rotary switch and should be turned on whenever you need to use address 10 through 19 on remotes.

(Addresses 0 and 22 will not function, as they are reserved for Falcon communication)

Switch 6 is similar to switch 5 except it adds 20 to the number selected on the rotary switch this should be used for remote addresses 20 - 31.

(Addresses 0 and 22 will not function, as they are reserved for Falcon communication)

Switch 7 NOT USED

Switch 8 is used to enable the High impedance for the communication and should only be used on the last device of a line exceeding a length of 800 feet.

NOTE: There should only be one (1) remote with the terminating resistor ON!

4.2.3 Testing the Keypad

(1) Test the display by applying power to the keypad. A default date and time should appear on the display after power is applied. The PTI Falcon base unit updates the date and time to the remote keypads once a minute, the date and time on the display should update if the remote is configured correctly. You can also for a time update to the remotes by pressing * # # # # # on the Falcon, to verify that the backlight is working press the * key. The backlight should come on and the display will display "Please Enter Access Code". If no keys are pressed for 10 seconds the display will return to the Date/Time and the backlight will shut off.

(2) To test the touchpad operation press the ‘ * ’ key. When the display shows

‘Please Enter Access Code’, press the 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. You should see each digit appear on the display as it is pressed (you will see an "X" for each digit if DIP switch #1 is ON). After pressing the # key to transmit the code to the

Falcon, the display will show "Please Wait" until a response is returned from the Falcon. If your keypad is communicating with the Falcon, the display will show either an ‘Entry Granted’ or any corresponding message for more information on keypad messages please refer to the

‘Trouble Shooting

Section’

.

(3) Test for communications with the base unit by turning on the base unit and entering the correct date and time into the base unit. The date and time at the

Falcon should be sent to the keypad and appear in the display after it is changed in the base unit. This verifies communications from the base unit to the keypad. Test communications from the keypad to the base unit by entering an access code into the keypad and pressing the "#" key. If the keypad display responds with anything other than "Please Wait" before returning to the date and time, the keypad has successfully communicated with the base unit. If you only get a display of “Please Wait” and the keypad defaults back to the power up default time of 12:00 you will need to recheck your wiring, Baud rate settings, rotary switch settings and also make sure the Falcon is set to the proper number of remotes.

4.3 Individual Door Alarm Installation

The PTI door individual door alarm system is very unique when compared to most alarm systems. Through the use of the RS-485 communication scheme we are able to control hundreds of alarm points from a single communication line. Unlike many other systems including home alarms, you have limitations that require many different expanders to handle as many doors. The PTI multiplexer (Mux) is the only multiplexer that is expandable by banks of sixteen all the way up to 96 points per

Mux, unless a Wireless Mux is then you are limited to 4000 points per wireless

Mux. This allows for greater flexibility when drawing a site layout.

There are several different ways to install and wire the individual doors and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. It is most important that time is taken to determine the best method for your application and a wiring diagram followed to ensure a proper installation for years to come. As an installer you must realize the consequences of a poor installation and the excessive labor that can develop because of it. The following will outline some of the different methods. These examples are not the only way, but are methods that have been proven over the years.

4.3.1 Multiplexer Box Installation

(1) Find an appropriate location for the installation of each multiplexer (MUX) box required for the door alarm system. It is recommended that each building has its own mux box. Buildings with a large number of doors to alarm may require more than one mux box. Remember that although the mux boxes may look identical on the outside, some boxes may be configured to handle more doors than other boxes, so take care to match the correct box to each building. The Mux enclosures are rainproof and may be mounted outdoors use indoor mounting if available. Whenever installing a Mux box indoors, make sure that the box is accessible. Above the entrance door to a building with hallway access makes an ideal location.

NEVER locate a mux box inside of a storage unit or any other location that will not be easily accessible in the future.

(2) Mount each mux box by removing the lid and circuit board. Once removed install sinking screws or bolts through the mounting holes into the wall. If the circuit board is not removed during installation take care not to damage the circuit board during the mounting process. If you must drill to mount the box, do not allow any metal fragments to become lodged on the circuit board.

Knock outs have been provide at the bottom and rear of the box for multiple wiring configurations. Please be sure to install grommets or bushings or conduit on any wiring entrance.

4.3.2 Door switch Wiring Methods

There are three acceptable wiring methods for individual door alarm wiring.

4.3.2.1 Method 1 – Common Ground

Install the door-to-door wiring cable and door switches. Splice the door switch wires into the main cable as indicated above. 3M UG and UY connectors are recommended and available through PTI for the wire splices. Choose a different color wire for one side of each switch, which will be BUTT, spliced with a 3M UY connector. Choose one wire as the common wire to the other side of all the switches on the cable, this can be connected with a 3M UG in line splice.

There are several possible cable routing schemes. You may decide to route one door-to-door cable from the mux box, or several depending on the number of conductors in the cable used and the box location within the building. Remember that the maximum number of switches on one cable with method #1 is equal to the number of conductors in the cable minus one. Telephone cable is commonly available in twenty-four conductor (12 pair) or fifty conductor (25 pair). One size will generally work better than the other depending on the number of doors and the mux box location.

January 30, 2004

4.3.2.2 Method 2 – End of Line Ground

Install the multi-conductor door-to-door wiring cable and door switches. Splice the door switch wires into the main cable as indicated above. 3M UG connectors are recommended for splicing the door switch cable into the multiconductor cable.

Choose a different color wire for each switch then cut it and splice the switch wiring into each end of the cut wire using a 3M UY connector. Any wires not used in the multiconductor cable can be used as a ground and terminated in the multiplexer on the door input ground plane.

Install a junction box outside of the units and at the end of the multiconductor and punch the wire through to the junction box. Strip all ends of the multiconductor cable and solder them together then protect the connection with a wire nut and electrical tape.

**Note - When testing this system make sure you open all doors then close them one by one, otherwise if a wiring mistake was made and 2 switches are on the same wire the problem will not show up properly and one door channel will print for both doors.

Rev. 4.41

January 30, 2004

4.3.2.3 Method 3 – Conventional Two Wire

Method 3 is wired the same way a conventional alarm panel is by using 2 separate conductors for each and every door. A 22awg 2 Conductor cable is run to each door and terminated at each door switch. The opposite end in the mux is then punched down accordingly. Due to the limited number of grounds terminals available on the multiplexer it will be necessary to group some of them together then punch down a single wire.

4.3.3 Roll Up Door Magnet and Switch Installation

Self-Storage doors are all manufactured slightly differently so care and time must be taken in the beginning to determine the best method for your application. The most important thing to keep in mind is what will happen over time. The door clearances will become larger and the door could possibly come up past the doorstop. The location of the switch should be chosen based upon this. Be sure to mount your hardware so neither the bracket nor the mounting screws will interfere with the operation of the door. NEVER MOUNT THE

MAGNET DIRECTLY TO THE DOOR STOP.

Only switches rated for a 2” gap or more should be used, these can be supplied by PTI if desired. If the magnet is mounted directly to a metal surface than a spacer should be used to help the magnet retain its magnetism over time. The gap between the switch and magnet should NEVER exceed ½”. ALWAYS mount the magnet and switch on the latch side of the door to prevent false alarms from door movement. Roll up doors often require the use of a mounting bracket for the switch as shown below in the diagrams. The magnet may be either bolted or riveted to the door using the two mounting holes and or glued using a premium adhesive such as PL-Premium. Do NOT use Liquid Nails

®

as the only adhesive device as it tends to break down and fail over time. An overhead door switch can also be used and mounted to the concrete floor as long as armor cable is used to protect the cable on the switch from damage.

4.3.3.1 Method 1 – Brace Mounted Switch Bracket

Method #1

32

Make sure the screws or bracket does not interfere with the operation of the door.

All wires should be fastened so they do not rub against the door.

Rev. 4.41

January 30, 2004

4.3.3.2 Method 2 – Track Mounted Switch Bracket

This method can be used with certain types of doors. You must make sure the tab at the top of the door is bent out far enough to clear the screws to hold the bracket. The magnet can then be installed, riveted and/or glued to the inside of the door. DO NOT ATTACH THE BRACKET TO THE DOOR STOP!

4.3.5 Door Switch Cable Termination

Terminate the wires from the door-to-door wiring cable on the mux board connectors. There must be one separate wire from each door switch and a common wire from all door switches per cable. Terminate the separate wires on the twenty position terminal strips, beginning with position #1 on the top left. There are sixteen door channels per connector row followed by four common wire connections per row. The common wire (ground) or wires may be terminated on any of the last four-positions of any row. The wires are terminated using a Panduit punch down tool available from PTI. Do not use a standard telephone punch

down tool or screwdriver as this may cause problems in the future. Be sure not to punch down the wires with the connectors still on the board but place the removable connector on a hard surface to punch down. This will insure a good connection and prevent unnecessary damage to the PCB board.

Install the communication and power wiring to the mux boxes. Communications and

12 VAC or DC power may be run through the same cable if a cable with two

individually shielded twisted pairs is used. For proper operation of the Mux it should have no less than 12V or more than 18V, also use no less than 18 AWG wire to lessen voltage drops on longer runs. If wire runs are longer and cause the voltage to drop below the 12V you may need to install a secondary power supply throughout the facility for information on this application please refer to http://www.ptiaccess.com/download/quick.html

or contact your sales representative.

Using smaller gauge wire will cause problems with voltage drops and the RS485 communication.

Any remote device will NOT operate properly if any voltage drops below

11.5V on the input.

4.3.8 Multiplexer Box Switches

Switch 1: OFF = adds zero to unit number ON = adds one

Switch 2: OFF = adds zero to unit number ON = adds two

Switch 3: OFF = adds zero to unit number ON = adds four

Switch 4: OFF = adds zero to unit number ON = adds eight

Switch 5: OFF = adds zero to unit number ON = adds sixteen

Switch 6: OFF = 9600 Baud Communication ON = 1200 Baud

Switch 7: OFF = Supervised Switches Off ON = Supervised on

Switch 8: OFF = Tamper Switch Enabled ON = Tamper disabled

Switch 1 – 5 Are used to set the address on the Mux just like the keypads they can be addressed up to 31. Also remember that remotes 0 and 22 will not function since they are reserved for the Falcon.

Switch 6 This is the same as switch 4 on the keypads. It is used to set the communication speed from 9600 to 1200. This setting must match the setting of all remotes as well as the setting in the Falcon in Function 14.

Switch 7 This function is only turned on when you are using special door contacts with a built in 4.7K

Ω resistor. PTI’s ships regular door contacts without the resistors unless specified by the end user. This will detect any shorts in the door-to-door wires. If a tenant tries to bypass a door switch the alarm will go off. This option requires PTI supervised switches.

If this is enabled and regular door contacts are used the system will not function correctly and report erroneous door activity.

Switch 8 This enables and disabled the built-in tamper device in the Mux.

DIP switches 1 – 5 allow you to set the Mux box unit number using a binary code.

The boxes may be numbered in any order as long as each box has a unique unit number that is not the same as any other mux box or keypad. It is typical to begin numbering the mux boxes at one higher than the last remote keypad number. For example, if there are two gate access keypads numbered one and two, then the mux boxes will be numbered three, four, five, etc. Using DIP switches 1 – 5 allows the mux box unit number to be set to any number from zero to thirty one. The Mux box unit number is displayed in the four-digit display in the top left corner of the board. For example, remote unit number twenty may be selected by placing switches three and five ON and switches one, two, and four OFF. The result is then

4 + 16 = 20.

4.3.10 Testing the Alarm Wiring

The PTI Mux board contains a four digit LCD in the upper left corner of the circuit board. There are three different diagnostic messages displayed on a continuous basis:

(1) The display will show the time of day in the format HH:MM. The time is transmitted to the Mux board from the PTI Falcon base unit once a minute.

The time will default to 12:00 at power up. If the time display changes to match the base unit within one minute and the green LED begins to blink, communications has been established with the PTI Falcon base unit.

(2) The display will show the unit number of the Mux box in the format Un:XX, where XX is the two digit unit address set with DIP switches 1-5 in the range

00-31.

(3) The display will show the number of the last switch channel to Open, Close or Short in the format O-XX, C-XX or S-XX, where XX is the two digit channel number in the range 00-96. Channel 00 is the door tamper switch and channels 01-96 are normal alarm switches. Example O – 11 = channel

#11 was opened, C – 11 = Close channel 11. On version 2 Muxes this will alternate between the last event and the version number of the Mux in the form of rX.XX where X is the version numbers.

This is not the unit number and must be cross-referenced in the Falcon programming or the Alarm.alm file to associate the proper unit number.

NOTE – A 9 V DC battery can be connected to the Batt terminals input on the mux to check the doors before permanent power is connected. This is extremely helpful when the conduits and office are not in place yet. This is not a battery backup option if a battery is left on these terminals when power is applied undesired operation will occur.

4.3.11 Testing the Multiplexer Communication

To test communications with the alarm multiplexer box, your PTI Falcon base unit must be installed and operational, and your communication wiring to the alarm mux box must be in place. Test communications as follows:

(1) Check that all wiring is in place, all switches properly set, and all cables plugged in to the back of the PTI Falcon base unit. Apply power to the alarm mux boxes.

(2) Open Falcon 2000 or load the printer with paper according to the instructions in the printer manual and apply power to the printer.

January 30, 2004

(3) Apply power to the PTI Falcon base unit. After one minute or less, the

Falcon 2000 event log or the printer connected to the PTI Falcon will print

"Comm On - Remote XX" along with the date and time as shown on the base unit display, where "XX" is the remote unit number for which communications has been logged on. If communications is lost to a remote device after being logged on, the message "Comm Off - Remote XX" along with the date and time will be logged on the printer.

(4) The time on the base unit will be displayed on the MUX board and the green

LED will begin to blink when the unit starts communicating with the Falcon base unit.

4.3.12 Creating the alarm.alm File

Once the Door alarm system is installed the units should be opened individually to test the wiring connections and door switches. As the units are tested a list of what

MUX and Channel they are connected to needs to be created. The MUX and

Channel information is required for the Falcon base unit to know what unit number is being opened. The Mux and Channel numbers can be programmed directly into the Falcon using Function # 5. If the Falcon is going to be connected to a computer, the MUX and Channel information MUST be put in the Alarm.alm file in the C:\PTI directory or into the Falcon 2000 Software. For more information on entering the

information in Falcon 2000 please refer to the falcon 2000 User Manual.

Note that the file must be in alphanumeric order and a carriage return (enter) is required after each line. The 1 on the end of each line turns the unit alarm on. Once the file is created it can be downloaded along with rental information to the Falcon with an Accounting Software Interface.

If the alarm file is not sorted properly, the download will NOT work. Make sure all unit numbers are sorted. Preceding zeros should be used in the unit number to ensure a proper sort of the data.

The data format for the Alarm.alm is as follows in the example below.

“UNIT NUMBER, MUX NUMBER, CHANNEL NUMBER, 1”

4.5 Remote Relay Board Installation

The PTI 8-channel relay board has 8 Form C relay outputs on it and can be used to control a variety of devices. Some examples are elevators, lights and perimeter beams. This board also has 8 door alarm channels on it. Please note the alarm grounds are configured differently on this board than the mux boards.

The Power and communications hookup and settings on this device is the same as the PTI MUX board. Please refer to the section on MUX Box Switches or to the following page for the Relay Board layout, hookups and switch settings.

The relay board must be defined as a relay board using Function 18 on the

Falcon or with Remote station setup in the Falcon 2000 Access Management

Software.

If the relay board is used to control lights, make sure the lighting controls are turned on under Function 1000, the Factory Setup Menu, and the Lighting Zones are defined using Function 20. The Lighting Zone setup can also be done with the Falcon 2000 Access Management Software. Each lighting zone must have

its own relay to activate on a relay board.

WARNING: THE RELAYS ON THIS BOARD ARE LOW VOLTAGE ONLY. AN

AUXILIARY RELAY MUST BE USED FOR HIGH VOLTAGE APPLICATION.

The PTI 8-channel relay board contains a four digit LCD in the upper left corner of the circuit board. There are three different diagnostic messages displayed on a continuous basis:

The display will show the time of day in the format HH:MM. The time is transmitted to the Mux board from the PTI Falcon base unit once a minute. The time will default to 12:00 at power up. If the time display changes to match the base unit within one minute and the green LED begins to blink, communications has been established with the PTI Falcon base unit.

The display will show the unit number of the Mux box in the format Un:XX, where

XX is the two digit unit address set with DIP switches 1-5 in the range 00-31.

The display will show the number of the last switch channel to Open or Close in the format O-XX or C-XX, where XX is the two-digit channel number in the range 00-

08. Channel 00 is the door tamper switch and channels 01-08 are normal alarm switches.

NOTE-PTI has a 2-channel relay board available for smaller tasks.

4.7 Falcon Base Unit Installation

Follow the following steps for installation of the PTI Falcon base unit:

(1) Place the base unit in a readily accessible position where there is power available. Plug the small connector from the DC power pack into the back of the base unit. Do not plug the power cord into a wall outlet yet.

(2) Place the printer in a readily accessible position where there is power available. Install the printer cable between the base unit and the printer by plugging the connector in at each end. Tighten the cable retaining screws using a small screwdriver. Install the printer ribbon and paper according to the instructions in the printer manual before plugging the printer power cord

into a wall outlet.

(3) Make certain that the communications wiring from the remote keypads and door alarm multiplexers has been properly terminated on the remote patch cable and that the wires are in the correct order on the patch cable terminal block.

(4) If you are using the computer interface for the PTI Falcon, install the PTI computer interface cable between the base unit and your personal computer.

(5) Plug the base unit power cord into a properly grounded outlet. WARNING:

SHOCK HAZARD! NEVER OPERATE THE PTI FALCON BASE UNIT FROM

AN UNGROUNDED OUTLET OR USE A THREE TO TWO WIRE

CONVERSION ADAPTER WITH THE PTI FALCON! If your office is not equipped with safety grounded outlets, consult a licensed electrician to have a properly grounded outlet installed.

(6) Turn on the AC power switch on the rear of the base unit. The default date and time should appear on the display. Then install the remote patch cord in the connector on the rear of the base unit and tighten the retaining screws. This will not only complete the connection to the remote devices. The internal batteries will to begin to charge. The batteries may require forty-eight hours of initial operation of the base unit before being fully charged.

4.8 Security Graphics Installation

Typical wiring for the PTI Security Graphics system is shown below. The graphics adapter allows the graphics controller to be hooked up to the PTI Falcon in the same manner as a remote keypad. Data is transmitted from the PTI Falcon base unit to the Graphics controller only (not from the Graphics controller to the

Falcon).The graphics adapter DOES NOT require use a DEVICE ADDRESS.

Therefore, the PTI Falcon will not log "Communications On" or "Communications

Off" for a Graphics Controller as it does with Remote Keypads and Door Alarm Mux boxes. If access events are logged across the bottom of the graphics screen as they occur, the system is communicating properly with the Graphics controller.

The installer should note that the Graphics Adapter is plugged into a 9-pin Serial

Communication port of the graphics computer, and the optional Switch panel is plugged into the printer port. For more info on Site Graphics optional components visit www.ptiaccess.com

. PTI’s windows graphics program can use ports 1 – 8 the graphics program must be set to communicate at the same speed as the RS-485 on the Falcon. (Default - 9600) Function 16 on the Falcon updates the unit status to the graphics image. If Function 16 does not display ‘Updating Graphics’ on the

Falcon display, the graphics option is turned off in the ‘Factory Setup Menu’.

See Function 1000 Factory Setup.

5.1 Function #1 – Set Time / Date

Function #1 -

Set Time/Date?

Function #1 - Set Time/Date is used to enter the correct time and date into the PTI

Falcon. The date is entered in Month-Day-Year format (American version) or Day-

Month-Year format (European/Australian version), with two digits required for each.

Even though no punctuation marks (slashes) are entered from the keypad, the PTI

Falcon will provide them on the display. For example, to set the date to January 9,

1991, you must enter 01/09/91. Note that years from 85-99 refer to 1985-1999, and years from 00-84 refer to 2000-2084. The date and time in the system is maintained by a hardware real time clock. In the event of a power failure, the date and time will be correct when power is restored.

In the example at the right, the bold face type has been entered to change the date from the initial setting of 06/07/99 to 08/09/99. Press "#" to set the new date.

Enter 06/07/99

Date: 08/09/99

After entering the correct date, you may enter the correct time. The time is entered in Hour-Minute format, with two digits required for each.

For example, to set the time to 3:00 PM, you must enter 0300 from the keypad. The display will then alternate between 03:00 AM and 03:00 PM. Press

Enter 12:00 AM

Time: 03:00 PM the "#" key when PM is displayed to select 3:00 PM.

The example on the right shows the screen when entering the time.

At times, you may wish to change only the time without affecting the date, or only the date without affecting the time. This is possible by pressing the "#" key to skip the date or time. If the "#" key is pressed, the entry will be skipped (and thus remain at its present value) and the PTI Falcon will proceed to the next entry.

The PTI Falcon display will indicate the day of the week, the correct date, and the correct time on the display when no other function is being performed.

An example of the display appearance is shown at the right.

5.2 Function #2 – Set Time Zone

Function #2 -

Set Time Zone?

Function #2 - Set Time Zone is used to set the normal access hours that you wish to allow for your customers. Business hours are specified with both an Open Time and a Close Time. Open and Close times may be specified separately for each day of the week and Holidays. The time zones are numbered from one to eight.

After selecting Function #2, the display will appear as indicated. Select the time zone number by entering a digit in the range 1 - 8 and press #.

Time Zone # =

Each time is entered a format similar to that used for setting the time with Function

Number One. For example:

On Mondays, allow normal access from 8:00 AM to

5:00 PM.

Monday 12:00 AM

Open: :00 AM

Monday 12:00 AM

Close: 05:00 PM

24 Hr Access =12:00AM to 11:59PM

The times for Tuesday through Sunday are entered in a similar fashion, followed by the desired times for Holidays. If you wish to completely lockout entry for a particular day, set both the Open time and Close time to 12:00 AM.

As in Function One, select between AM and PM by pushing the "#" key when the desired setting appears on the screen.

After specifying the allowed access hours for each day of the

Keypads 00000000

(1-8): 11010000

Keypads 00000000

(9-16): 00000000 week, the PTI Falcon will request the authorized keypads that customers in this zone will be allowed to use. The keypads will be split into four groups for data entry purposes. Keypads 1 -

8 will be in the first group, then 9 – 16, 17- 24 and 25 – 32. Within each group enter a string of eight digits left to right. Enter a "1" if the customer is allowed to use the keypad or a "0" if they are not allowed to use the keypad. In the example above, access to keypads One, Two and Four is allowed. If a printout of Area Closed is experienced and the customer cannot enter the area then they are trying to access the property before or after the hours they were granted. If a printout of Area

Denied is experienced then the customer is trying to access an area or keypad that has a 0 in front of it which disallows access for that time zone.

5.3 Function #3 – Set Holidays

Function #3 -

Set Holidays?

Function #3 - Set Holidays allows up to thirty-two holidays to be specified in advance by date. On these days, the PTI Falcon will use the holiday access hours rather than the normal weekday, Saturday, or Sunday access hours. Each holiday is assigned a consecutive holiday number in the range of one to thirty two. The holidays do not have to be assigned in any particular order.

For example, to set holiday number six to be July 4,

2000, enter 6 for the holiday number as shown.

Press * 3 # to begin. At the Holiday prompt input the

Holiday number, then press #.

Holiday # = 6

Then, enter 07/04/00 for the holiday date as indicated. On July 4, 2000 the programmed holiday hours will be observed by the PTI Falcon.

Holiday 00/00/00

Date: /04/00

If you need to change a holiday, follow the same procedure and simply enter a new date for the holiday. The PTI Falcon display will always indicate the present setting for the holiday date on the top line of the display. Holidays which have never been programmed will appear as 00/00/00. It is not necessary to remove a holiday that has already passed, because the date will never occur again anyway. If you wish to cancel a holiday that has not yet occurred, you may reset the holiday date to

00/00/00 or to any date that has already passed. Remember that the two-digit year for any date in the PTI Falcon refers to the twentieth century if the year is 85 or higher, and the twenty first century for years 0 through 84.

Next you must specify if the door alarm for this unit should be turned On or Off. The present setting is displayed as indicated. Change the setting by pressing the * key. Press the # key when the correct

Unit Alarm

< On > setting is on the screen. If door alarms are not in use, skip this screen by pressing #.

Finally you must specify if the unit should be locked out from normal access permission. Press the * key to change the lockout setting as desired, then press

# when the setting is correct.

Unit Lockout

<Off>

After specifying all data for a unit, the screen will indicate, "Do More?” If you wish to immediately enter data for another unit, press "#" for YES and you will go back to the first step above, otherwise press "*" for NO.

Duplicate Access Codes

Under most circumstances, the access code for a single unit will be unique and assigned only to one unit. You may at times, however, have customers that rent multiple units and do not wish to remember a separate access code for each unit.

This is of little consequence since you can always assign an access code to only his first unit, unless a door alarm system is in operation. In this case, the PTI Falcon must be able to recognize all units that belong to a single customer so that when they enter the property, the alarms on all of their units can be disarmed.

This is accomplished by allowing the same access code to be assigned to multiple units. To do this, enter data for the first unit normally, and then enter data for the second unit. Upon entering the same access code for the second unit, a warning message

Warning-Used By:

Sc/Unit A-0002C

Save Anyway? will be displayed as illustrated to tell you that you are duplicating an access code. The screen will indicate the section and unit number that already use the code. After displaying the warning for a few seconds, the screen will change and ask you if you wish to save the code anyway. Press "#" for YES to assign the duplicate code to a second unit, or press "*" for NO if you do

January 30, 2004

not wish to assign the duplicate code. If you press "*", you will return to the access code entry screen so that you may assign the unit a different access code.

The above procedure may be repeated as many times as necessary to assign the same access code to all units which are assigned to a single tenant.

Multiple Codes per Unit

There will be occasions where you may want several different codes for the same unit. The Falcon can handle these by assigning an Alpha character to the end of the unit number. Example = unit 100 has 3 additional codes needed, Assign

0100A, 0100B, 0100C the different codes and if the unit has an alarm enter the same mux and channel information and the alarm will be disabled once any of the codes are entered.

Duplicate Mux/Channels

Under most circumstances, the door alarm

Mux/Channel number assigned to a particular unit is

Warning-Used By:

Sc/Unit B-0003A unique. If you have, however, a common alarm sensor such as an RV parking area motion sensor photo beam, it is necessary to assign this one alarm sensor to multiple rental units. When this is done, the beam will be disarmed whenever any tenant in the area is on the property and will be armed only when

Save Anyway? all tenants from the area have left the property. When the Mux/Channel is assigned to the second and subsequent units, a duplication warning will appear as indicated. If the duplication is not an error, Press # to save the Mux/Channel setting. Otherwise press * to return and select a different Mux/Channel number.

The above procedure may be repeated as many times as necessary to assign the same Mux/Channel number to all units which are assigned the same alarm sensor.

The user data in the Falcon is stored in non-volatile memory. When power is interrupted, the system will restart without loss of user data or activity records.

Function #8 - Print Reports is used to generate reports on the printer with the PTI

Falcon. The report types are:

All Units- A report of all customers and their access codes and time zones.

All Units?

(NO) (YES)

Systems with PTI door alarms will also print the MUX unit number and

Channel number for each unit. Units may have a letter code in the far right column. See Status Codes below for details.

Suspended - A report similar to All Units except only units with Locked Out

(suspended) access are printed.

Vacant -

Open -

A report of all units that no access code has been assigned to.

A report similar to All Units except only units with open doors are printed; this report is available only on systems with PTI door alarms.

On Site - A report that shows any tenant that is currently on the property or did not log out when they left.

System Setup - This report shows the configuration of all setup options. PTI tech. support may request a copy of this report for troubleshooting. It is a good idea to print a copy of the setup after the initial install and after any changes to the system and place it in a safe location for future reference.

Status Report - This report shows the online status of all remotes on the system. This report will show the Units in alarm condition, the open doors, the remotes on line but not configured and the remotes configured but not on line. This report can be automatically generated at midnight by configuring it in the advanced setup commands (*1000#). It is highly

recommended this report is run daily to ensure all problems with the system are identified and corrected.

Cancel - Selecting this stops a report already in progress from further printing.

January 30, 2004

V – Vacant, Indicates this unit is programmed into the system but does not have an access code associated to it.

S – On Site, Indicates this customer has currently keyed on site but not off site yet. An inspection of the site may indicate that the customer is actually not on site but has “tailgated” off the property and not used the exit keypad or his auto-arming door time has not expired if door alarms are present and an auto rearm time is entered. ALL customers can be marked off site by using the *24# command

(clear users on site).

L – Lockout, Indicated that this customer is locked off the site. If a code is entered at any keypad the customer will get a message of Access Denied.

This code will not be allowed access until the status is changed under Rent Unit

(*5#).

Door Alarm Systems Only:

A – Alarm, Indicates this unit is currently in alarm condition and should be checked. If swinger shut down is on, this door will NOT alarm again until alarm are cleared using the *12# command.

O – Open Door, Indicated that a customer has entered the site and has opened his door. If the customer’s door is not open and this display still shows an inspection of the door contact and wiring should be performed.

P – Unit Alarm Off, Indicated this alarm is turned off under *5# for this unit and will not go into alarm condition nor will it print open or close. Alarms should only be turned off if there is a problem. This should only be temporary and the door should be repaired as soon a possible.

After selecting Function #8, press # (YES) to print the report being displayed. Press

* (NO) to display the next report to be printed. The PTI Falcon will begin printing the selected report and the Falcons display will return to the date and time. After a report is in progress, selecting cancel will cause the PTI Falcon to stop sending characters to the printer and return to displaying the date and time. Even though the PTI Falcon has stopped sending data to the printer, the printer will continue to print until all data previously sent has been printed. This may make it appear as if the report was not canceled, but if you wait a few seconds the printer should stop.

5.11 Function #11 – Open Entrance

Function #11 -

Open Entrance

Function #11 - Open Entrance can be used to manually open your gate or entrance from the PTI Falcon base unit. Each PTI Falcon remote keypad contains a relay that the installer has wired to the entrance motor or lock. This Function allows you to manually trigger the relay in any remote device in order to open the entrance to which the remote device is wired.

After selecting Function #11, the display will ask you for the number of the remote device that you wish to trigger. Enter the number and press "#". Your installer should tell you the remote number and relay

Trigger Remote

Number: 1 number that will trigger each entrance or exit device that you have on the property.

After you select the remote number, you must specify the relay on that remote. On standard keypads this

number will always be 1. If you are triggering a relay board it could be a number 1 – 8, or if triggering an Apex it would 1 or 2.

After you select the relay, you must specify if you want to hold the entrance open. If you press * (NO) the remote relay will be triggered and the PTI Falcon

Trigger Remote

01,Relay: 1

Hold Open (N/Y)? will return to the date and time display. If you press #

(YES) to hold the entrance open, the remote relay will be triggered and will not release until you trigger it again with Function #11 and press * to not hold open.

Note-if the relay is held open using the *11# command and the keypad is used.

The hold open function will release and the gate or lock will no longer be held open. You will need to go back into the function *11# to hold it open again. It is recommended that a separate mechanical switch be installed for operation that will require holding the device open for extended periods of time. Use of Function

#11 to trigger a relay is logged on the printer and becomes a part of the access log for the property. If you have PTI door alarms in use, you also have a relay installed in the PTI Falcon base unit. This relay is typically used to trigger your alarm siren. Remote number "0" refers to the relay within the PTI Falcon base unit.

This relay triggers your alarm siren in the event of a break in. Triggering Remote #0 with Function #11 is useful for testing the siren. The siren may be silenced again with Function #12 - Clear Alarms.

5.12 Function #12 – Clear Alarms

Function #12 -

Clear Alarms

Function #12 - Clear Alarms is functional only on systems with PTI door alarms.

Whenever a unit enters the alarm condition, the alarm is logged on the printer and the siren relay is triggered. Further alarms for the unit are then disabled until

this function is executed to clear the alarm condition unless swinger

shutdown is turned off under the advanced program function (*1000#). This prevents a single unit from setting off the alarm multiple times without intervention by the manager to investigate the alarm. Function #12 clears ALL units on the property from the alarm condition, so if multiple units have alarmed, it is only necessary to execute Function #12 one time. Note that if you forget to execute

Function #12 after an alarm, the units that alarmed will be left in the off

condition and will not print door activity until Function #12 is executed.

After selecting Function #12, the display will indicate

"Clearing Alarms..." for several seconds while the

PTI Falcon searches for all units in the alarm condition and clears them. The display will then

Clearing

Alarms... return to the date and time.

Function #12 is also used for shutting off the alarm siren prior to its programmed alarm time.

Remote Communication Alarms may be set On or

Off. If Remote Communication Alarms are On, any

Rem Comm Alarms

<On> failure in communication between the Falcon base unit and any remote will cause the alarm siren to sound. It is recommended that Remote Communication Alarms be turned on.

Tamper switch alarms may also be turned On or Off.

Tamper alarms will normally be On and will only be turned Off when you need to open an alarm mux box

Tamper Alarms

<On> for maintenance.

Unknown Channels may be turned On or Off. If a mux box reports an alarm switch opening or closing on a channel that has not been assigned to a

Unknown Channels

<On> section/unit number, it is considered an "Unknown

Channel". If you do not wish Unknown Channels to become a part of the site event log, they may be turned Off. It is highly recommended that unknown Channels Be turned on. This will bring non-programmed units to the attention of the Manager.

Auxiliary Sirens

<On> the Mux boxes rather than from the relay in the PTI

Falcon base unit. If there are any remote sirens

wired into the system from a multiplexer then this option must be turned ON in order for them to work.

Day Siren:

You may specify the length of time that the siren should sound during normal business hours in seconds. A setting of 60 is equal to sixty seconds or one minute. The siren will automatically shut

Day Siren = 0060

New Value = 300 down after sounding for this length of time. Note that normal business hours are

considered to be those specified in Time zone number One.

Night Siren:

You may also specify the length of time that the siren should sound after normal business hours

(other than time zone #1) in seconds. A setting of

Nite Siren = 0300

New Value = 400

300 is equal to three hundred seconds or five minutes.

The automatic rearm time is specified in minutes. If automatic alarm rearming is not desired, set the rearm time to zero. When the rearm time is non-

Rearm Time = 000

New Value = 30 zero, an alarm door will automatically rearm the specified number of minutes after the door is closed. Automatic rearming is useful if the site does not allow the use of an exit keypad to rearm the unit alarm as the tenant leaves, or as a fail safe for tenants who tailgate out of the property. The rearm time must be set reasonably long to prevent doors from rearming when the tenant has momentarily shut the door and then opened it again.

You will then be asked if you wish to save the present setup. If you press # for YES, the present alarm control options will be saved in the PTI

5.14 Function #14 – Control Options

Function #14 -

Control Options?

Function #14 - Control Options is used to set various control features of the PTI

Falcon system. They are as follows:

When Printer Logging is turned on, the PTI Falcon will send transaction data to a standard parallel

Printer Logging printer connected directly to the Falcon. If the printer logging is turned off, the Falcon will store several transactions in its memory. Once a printer is connected, the printer logging can be turned on and the Falcon will print the stored information. If a printer is connected to the system and turned off and printer logging is ON all transaction data will be lost. If printer logging is OFF then the transaction data will be saved and printed when turned back ON.

The relay time is specified in seconds. It controls how long a remote relay is triggered when a valid access code is entered in the entry keypad providing no remotes have been configured under Remote Setup

Relay Time = 01

New Value = 2

*18#. A setting of 2 seconds is adequate for most gate operators.

This value should be set to the maximum number of remote devices that are connected to the PTI Falcon.

This includes both keypads, door alarm Mux boxes and relay boards. Setting this number properly saves

Max Remotes = 15

New Value = 2 the PTI Falcon from wasting time attempting to communicate with remote devices that are not present. It is based on the address of the unit. If you have 3 units on site but the highest address of the last device is 4 then the max remotes must be set to 4. If the value is set to 15 and the highest address of a remote device is 10 the value should be set to 10 to prevent any communication problems.

The baud rate for the RS232C port on the rear of the

PTI Falcon base unit may be set to either 12 (1200),

24 (2400), 96 (9600) or 192 (19200) baud. The

RS232 Baud = 96

New Value = 24

RS232C port is used by the PTI Falcon to communicate with a host computer or a modem. The baud rate must be set to match that of the host computer for communication to be possible

The normal setting is 9600 baud. . An incorrect value will cause an interface with a

CPU not to work.

If the Falcon is at a remote location and connected to a modem, reentering the baud rate will initialize the modem. This sets the modem for the proper

speed and auto answer. Unless you are using a US Robotics Courier modem provided by PTI.

Note that the modem controls under Function #1000 must be turned on when the Falcon is connected to a modem.

The baud rate for the RS485 port on the rear of the

PTI Falcon base unit may be set to either 12 (1200) or 96 (9600) baud. The RS485 port is used to

RS485 Baud = 12

New Value = 96 communicate with all remote keypads and Mux boxes, and should be set to match the baud rate of the keypads and Mux boxes. A setting of 96(9600) is generally the best speed for communications. If problems in communication occur it is advised to try setting the

Baud Rate to 12 (1200).

NOTE- if changing the Baud rate on the Falcon ALL remotes must be changed also!

You will then be asked if you wish to save the present setup. If you press # for YES, the present control options will be saved in the PTI Falcon memory. The Falcon will then be able to

5.18 Function #18 – Set Up Remotes

Function #18 -

Setup Remotes

Password? 8898

Function #18 – Setup Remotes is used to change the default setting for all remotes on the PTI Falcon system. The default settings use odd numbered remotes as entrance and even ones as exit. If the keypads are defaulted and not defined they will trip the relay on their unit only when a proper access code is entered. If you define them under the *18# command you can trip any keypads relay with any other. This will eliminate the fact of having a separate wire run to a gate operator from both enter and exit keypads providing they both are controlling the same device. If you are using remote relay boards for controlling elevators, lighting zones, perimeter beams, opening gates or other relay controlled devices they must be defined in this function. Be sure to define ALL devices if the default is not

used.

See the Setup Remotes Flow Chart on the following page.

Four different remote device types can be defined:

• Standard Keypads – Any keypad with or without an intercom

• Card Readers – CodeXpress Keypads or Wiegand Readers

• Relay Boards – 8 or 2 channel relay boards

• Multiplexers – Door alarm muxs 16, 32, 48, 64, 80 or 96 channel

(multiplexers can also be configured for use as an intercom call device)

When you define Keypads or Card Readers you will be asked if you want the

Remote to Log Users On/Off Site. Only the Main entry and exit devices should be logging users on and off the site. If you have a Keypad at a building door or at an elevator it should not log the user on the site again. When used with a PTI Door

Alarm and Relay Control System, once a user is logged on the site there unit door alarm will be disarmed and any relay controls will be turned on. When the user logs off the site, the system rearms the door and turns out the lights or turns on photo beams that are controlled by the relay controls.

You will be asked if the device is used for entry or for exit. If you answer yes to both questions the device becomes a Toggling Unit. The first time a user puts in their code it will be an entrance, the next time it will be an exit. This is useful for logging in and out of the property from one device.

The system will also ask for a remote unit and relay to activate when a valid code is entered. The entrance device can be set to trip an exit device connected to the same gate motor for additional security or even a relay board located securely on

5.19 Function #19 – Set Up Elevators

Function #19 -

Password = 8898

Function #19 – Setup Elevators is used for multi story buildings with elevators that are controlled by the PTI 8 or 2 channel Relay Board. The Relay Board and a

Remote Keypad used for Elevator control must be defined in Function 18 – Setup

Remotes. Function 18 will determine the amount of time the relay will hold for.

Function 19 will determine the relay board and relay on that board that will be tripped based on a users unit number.

Multiple elevators can be setup, so the Function will first ask which elevator you are setting up and how many floors the elevator has. The current setting is

Elevator 1, # of

Floors (0)?

7

show in parentheses.

The Falcon will then ask what Relay Board and which relay on that board to trip for floor one. It will ask this question for each of the floors that are being controlled by the Relay Board.

The starting and ending section and unit numbers for the first floor must be entered. When a user logs in within the range the system will know what floor to take the user to. It will ask this question for each of the floors that are being controlled by the Relay

Board.

A typical application would be to install a keypad inside the elevator cab. This will require a traveling cable from the elevator company to be installed. The relay box can be located in the vicinity of the elevator room or the cab of the elevator itself. Many local codes will not allow it to be installed directly in the elevator room. You will need to coordinate with the elevator company to determine the best location. The elevator will have to be equipped with a floor specific lockout control that will accept either a N.O or N.C. momentary dry contact to activate the floor button once a proper code is entered.

Password? 8898

Function #20 – Setup Lighting/Relay Zones is used for turning on and off interior lights in buildings, motion detectors in an RV lot, perimeter beams and many other applications. The PTI Relay Board controls the devices. The Relay Board must be defined in Function 18 – Setup Remotes. Function 20 will determine the relay board and relay on that board that will be tripped based on a users unit number. The relay will remain activated until all users have logged out for that zone.

The PTI Falcon can control up to 64 Lighting Zones.

The system will ask what Lighting Zone you want to setup first. The Falcon will then ask what Relay

Board and which relay on that board to activate for a section and unit number range. It will ask this

Lighting Zone 01

Rly Brd (00)?

9

question for each of the Lighting Zones that are being controlled by the Relay Board. The current setting is show in parentheses.

Note: Lighting Controls must be turned on in

Function 1000. The number of lighting zones that will be used must also be defined. Set the number of zones used only to the true number being used and no higher. The lights off delay time may also be set.

When using Lighting Controls/Relay Controls each zone must have its own relay to activate.

Only the first eight zones will obey the off delay feature. When a number is set for the off delay, the system will wait for the specified number of seconds to pass after the user has logged out, before releasing any relays being held. This feature can be used for lighting controls, shunting IR perimeter beams and many other relay-controlled devices.

6. Function 1000 - Factory Setup Menu

It is strongly advised that a qualified technician perform any programming in this section. If you do not fully understand the functions in this section you can create unnecessary problems with the proper operation of the system. Therefore you must contact a service representative of PTI to obtain the KEY number for access into this area.

The PTI Factory Setup menu is accessed by entering *1000# on the Falcon keypad. The PTI Falcon will then display a four-digit seed number. If the appropriate key number is then entered followed by the # key, the Factory Setup

Menu will be entered. The following selections can then be edited in Factory

Setup menu.

1) Change Password? <No> <Yes> Default: No

If a password is set, ALL functions will require the password to be entered before gaining access to the function. If the user does not know what the password is, this is where it can be found. This is useful for locking out unauthorized data entry. Setting the password to 0 will turn this option off.

Default: 000

Because the PTI Falcon now uses a hardware real time clock, the adjustment value has changed from previous releases. This value now can be used to calibrate the real time clock for time gained or lost in a month. Contact PTI for the proper settings. DO NOT CHANGE THIS

VALUE without guidance from PTI. This is only in versions prior to 4.33.

B. FW Reprogram? <ON> <OFF> Default: ON

This disables the ability to reprogram the Falcons firmware via the serial port. This is only in version 4.34 or newer.

3) Alarm System <On> <Off> Default: On

The entire alarm system software may be enabled or disabled by hitting the * key. This should be set to reflect whether or not the customer is using PTI individual unit alarms. When the alarm system software is off, other PTI

Falcon menu items regarding the alarm system will not operate on the display.

This should be set to ON if PTI Security Graphics is in use, otherwise set to off. When off, the PTI Falcon does not waste time transmitting graphic update data to a nonexistent graphics system and Function 16 will not work.

Set to on if the PTI Falcon is to be remotely programmed via telephone

Modem through the Falcon serial port (Falcon 2000 management software will be necessary) . Set to off if there is a direct connect cable from the

Falcon serial port to the customer PC. When Modem Enable is on, the PTI

Falcon will transmit a modem setup string to the modem 3 seconds after power up to place the modem into auto answer mode at 9600 baud. The modem setup string can also be resent to the modem by reentering the

RS232 baud in function 14.

6) Section Letters <On> <Off> Default: On

If the customer prefers numerical section numbers in the range of 1-32 rather than alphabetical section letters in the range A-Z (or blank), set section letters off. Example = A8888 (on) or 18888 (off)

7) European Dates <On> <Off> Default: Off

Set to on for dates in the format DD/MM/YY, Off for MM/DD/YY.

8) Free Exit <On> <Off> Default: Off

If on, exit keypads will always allow exit regardless of programmed time zone hours. If off, exit keypads will allow after hours exit only one time for customers that entered the property within allowed hours. Free exit lowers the chance of trapping some one in the facility at the risk of granting customers with valid pass codes the ability to jump the fence and use an exit keypad to open the gate after hours.

9) Anti-Passback <On> <Off> Default: Off

When Anti-passback is on, exit keypads will allow exit only if the user has previously keyed in at an entrance keypad. Entrance keypads will allow entrance only if the user has previously keyed out at an exit keypad. This limits access to only one user at a time and makes tailgating difficult. The exit keypad limitations will function only if free exit is turned off.

10) Lighting/Relay Controls <On> <Off> Default: Off

When on, the PTI Lighting/Relay controls will be enabled. You will be asked for the number of control zones that will be used. All control zones that are setup on the system must be defined. This also gives you an option for a relay release delay. When a number is set for the off delay, the system will wait for the specified number of seconds to pass after the user has logged out, before releasing any relays being held. This feature can be used for lighting controls, shunting IR perimeter beams and many other relaycontrolled devices.

When the lighting zones are enabled you will have the following options available also.

Light Zones This is the number of zones that you will be using. You can have up to sixty-four (64) lighting zones on Falcons version

3.00 or higher. 24 function Falcons prior to version 3.00 only have eight (8) lighting zones

Off Delay

This is the amount of time that the zone relay will be held for after the last user in that zone has logged off. This value is stored in seconds and can have a value of 00 – 255 which is

0 seconds up to 4 minutes 15 seconds. When setting this value you want to consider the amount of time the user will need to completely exit the secured / lighted zone.

11)

This causes the transmission of a single ASCII character out of the PTI

Falcon serial port whenever a new event is added to the PTI Falcon access log. PC software can use this flag character to know when there is something to read out of the access log.

This is used to either ignore or count the number of entries of a code, when this function is ON the Falcon will remember how many entries a particular code has had which would require the same amount of Exits in order to rearm a door alarm, release a zone relay, etc… When this function is turned OFF it does not log the number of entries because only one exit will log all entries off and rearm the unit alarm, release a zone relay. When this function is ON it will log a maximum of 255 if there are

256 entries without a single exit the Falcon will start the count from the beginning.

12) Check In Pad <= nn Default: 00

If nn is 00 this feature is turned off. If a number is entered, all remote keypads numbered “nn” and lower will be treated as Check In/Out stations. A Check In station functions as an entry station the first time the customer uses it and exit station the second time, etc. A different message is displayed for entries and exits so the customer can tell them apart. If a Check In/Out station is in use, any other remote keypads will not allow access unless the customer has first checked in at a Check In/Out keypad. Also any customer that leaves without checking out of the facility at a Check In/Out station will have his access suspended at midnight of that day until management enables it again.

13) Exempt Zone >nn Default: 09

If nn is 09 this feature is turned off. If a number is entered, customers in time zones numbered nn and higher will be exempt from the check in/check out process described above. Typically employee pass codes will be placed in an exempt zone so that employees do not have to check in before using other keypads on the property. Exempt zone employees will also not have their code suspended at midnight if they fail to key out when they exit the property.

Exempt zone can also be used to activate ALL relays on a relay board if an exempt code is entered. This is useful so a manager will not have to enter a separate code for each floor or to turn on specific lights.

14) Counter Rdr = nn Default: 00

Allows one remote keypad (number “nn”) to be set as a counter reader rather than a normal remote keypad. This overrides any other setting for this remote keypad. A counter reader is a remote keypad (or card reader) unit that is used by management to program pass codes into the PTI Falcon. If the PTI Falcon is at the point of entering a pass code, rather than entering the code through the keypad on the Falcon, it can be transmitted to the Falcon from the remote unit designated as the Counter Reader. Facilities using preprogrammed magnetic stripe cards for access often do not know what code is on a particular card. By swiping the card through the designated Counter Reader at the proper time, the code will be echoed on the screen of the Falcon as if they had entered it by hand. The normal programming process can then continue. A unit designated as a counter reader cannot be used for any other purpose (It is strongly suggested that the remote devices be operated at 9600 baud if a counter reader is used, or the response of the reader appears too slow).

15) Comm Count = nnn Default: 10

This specifies the number of consecutive communication failures that must occur with a remote device before it will be considered an error and

Communications off logged in the access record. The minimum allowed value is three and the maximum is two hundred and fifty five. The factory default setting is ten. If a property is experiencing comm on/off problems it is not recommended to increase this delay time. There is generally a wiring or component problem causing the printout and increasing this delay only masks the problem and does not correct it.

16) Midnight log out <On> <Off> Default: Off

When turned on, the system will mark all users offsite at midnight. This will arm all previously onsite doors and release any relays being held if used with the PTI door alarm system or relay/lighting controls. This is useful to clear

“tailgaters” from the site but can also accidentally mark tenants off site if they happen to have access after midnight and are currently on site.

17) Swinger shutdown <On> <Off> Default: On

When this feature is turned on, the PTI door alarm system will report a door violation and sound the siren only one time even if the door is reopened. The system will not set off the siren and report the violated door again until manually cleared by using function 12 on the Falcon base unit. If the feature is turned off, the system will report a door violation and sound the siren every time a violated door is reopened. Turning this feature off can cause nuisance alarms to continually go off many times creating problems with local residences and authorities.

18) Ignore onsite doors <On> <Off> Default: Off

The PTI door alarm system will not report normal door open and door close activity from onsite users when this feature is turned on. A door violation will still sound the siren normally. This feature is commonly used if motion sensors are installed in the units to prevent the printer from reporting open/close every time movement is detected

19) Daily status report <On> <Off> Default: Off

If turned on, the system will print the communication status of all remotes,

Open Doors and Doors in Alarm Condition at midnight providing a printer is connected to the Falcon and turned on. It is recommended this feature be turned on to provide a status of the property to the manager.

20)

A. Limit code size <On> <Off> Default: Off, 10 digits

This feature is used with the PTI CodeXpress card access system. Normally cards are read as 10 digit codes. If the accounting software has a code length limit the system can be set to match it. When turned on, the system will ask for the length of code to read off a card. This feature must be set before codes are assigned.

B. Card Length 7 – 09

The card lengths can on be set from 07 – 09 since the default is card length is 10 digits.

The remaining settings are used only with a PTI Wireless Door Alarm

System. Do not change any of the following setting without assistance from a PTI Technical support representative.

7. Function 1002 - Communications Loop

Back Test

The comm port loop back test is used to check the Falcons interface cable and its own comm port. To perform this test, plug one end of the interface cable into the Falcon and put a jumper into holes 2 and 3 on the other end. A metal paper clip may be used. Then press *1002#. The Falcon will now send out information through the cable then back. It will display if the test passed or failed. If the process fails the Falcon will need to be serviced by PTI.

New features are routinely added to the Factory Setup menu, as circumstances require. Please call PTI if you encounter an item not described here or if you are unclear about any factory setting.

Contact PTI if the function you desire has not been described in this manual. Our technical support personnel will be happy to assist you in any way possible.

8. Function 1003 – Erase All User Data

This function is used to clear all of the user information. (Units, Passcodes, and

Mux/Channel Assignments) All of the configuration settings like lighting zones, elevator zones, remotes setups, time zones, holidays, contrast code, alarm controls, and control options will be kept.

Contact PTI if the function you desire has not been described in this manual. Our technical support personnel will be happy to assist you in any way possible.

In cases where the PTI Falcon system seems to be malfunctioning, it is important to be able to isolate the problem before contacting your local installation company or

PTI. This will help keep the repair cost as low as possible for you. The following examples of malfunctions will help you in isolating malfunctioning components of the system. Normally you should not have to shut down the Falcon unless the malfunction appears to be within the Falcon. In either case it is highly recommended that a source of memory back up be obtained (computer disk backup through you management software package or Falcon 2000 windows program) prior to conducting any troubleshooting procedures.

Important- With the exception of cold booting the system hardware, Do not conduct any troubleshooting procedures within the system without first removing all sources of power. The Falcon induces small amounts of voltage into the Remote Keypads in addition to the 12-volt power supply. Failure to follow these recommendations can result in personal injury and damage to system.

Scenario 1- Codes entered into the Remote Keypad Units will not open gate,

display reads "Please Wait".

-This means the keypad is not communicating with the Falcon. The best solution for any electronic malfunction such as this is to reset the keypad. To reset the keypad, disconnect the power from the keypad and the communication by disconnecting the RS485 cable from the back of the Falcon Base Unit and shutting off the breaker for the power source to the keypads. Once both power sources are disconnected, reconnect the RS485 Cable to the back of the Falcon and turn the breaker on for the Remote Keypad Unit power. Within 60 seconds of restoring power the current date and time should transmit from the Falcon base unit to the keypad(s) and access codes should open the gate with an "Access Granted" message appearing on the display. If this does not clear up the problem, the

Remote Keypad Unit may need servicing by the PTI repair office. Call you local dealer or PTI at this point.

-Scenario 2- Codes entered into the Remote Keypad Units will not open gate, display reads "Access Granted".

-This malfunction could be in the Remote keypad unit or in the Gate Motor circuitry. If all of the Remote Keypad Units give an "Access Granted" message with an authorized code but the gate will not open, it is likely that there is a malfunction occurring in the Gate Motor. If this occurs with only one keypad, the relay inside the

Remote Keypad Unit may be defective. This is most assuredly determined by connecting an ohmmeter to pins 4 & 5 (for normally open circuits) or pins 5 & 6 (for normally closed circuits). Upon entering an authorized code into the keypad, the meter should deflect in the opposite direction indicating continuity in the relay. A layman's method of this is to simply listen closely to the keypad for 2 quiet clicks upon entering the code, which is representative of the relay cycling.

Rev. 4.41

January 30, 2004

-Scenario 3- Codes entered into the Remote Keypad Unit will not open gate, display reads "Access Denied".

-This indicates that the Falcon does not recognize the code. Often times the user has forgotten the correct sequence of numbers. The Falcon will print the incorrect code for your use.

-Scenario 4- Codes entered into the Remote Keypad Unit will not open gate, display reads "Access Suspended".

-This indicates that the user assigned to this code has been locked out from the property (Function 5).

-Scenario 5- Codes entered into the Remote Keypad Unit will not open gate, display reads "Sorry, Area Closed".

-This indicates that the user is not a 24-hour user and attempted to enter the property during the closed hours of the property for his time zone that are set in

Function 2. The business hours can be easily programmed incorrectly if the programmer does not enter the hours of operation in terms of AM for opening and

PM for closing.

-Scenario 6- Falcon is printing "Comm Off" and "Comm On" repeatedly for one or more remotes.

-This is an indication that one or more of the remotes (keypads or door alarm multiplexers) have suffered possible damage to the communication circuitry, or the system is reacting to an outside interference such as radio frequencies, mercury vapor light interference, or power line radiation for example. In such a case, reset the system in accordance with scenario 1. If the condition continues, disconnect one remote unit from the system at a time to eliminate the possibility of one malfunctioning unit causing all units to appear faulty.

-Scenario 7- Printer will not print.

-Ensure that the printer is not jammed with paper.

-Ensure the printer is on-line/ready and powered up.

-Disconnect printer cable from printer, shut power off/on and reconnect cable.

-Attempt printing a report from the Falcon (Function 8)

-If all other attempts fail, shut off printer and Falcon. Turn Falcon and printer back on, re-program Falcon or load back up from memory source. Re-attempt report printing again.

-Scenario 8- The Falcon will not receive information downloaded from my

Property Management software package.

-This is an indication of an interface malfunction between the Falcon Base Unit and the PC.

-Ensure that the serial interface cable is securely connected at both ends.

-If using telephone modems, there is a possibility that one of them is malfunctioning.

-Ensuring there is a current back up available. Shut off Falcon and PC and restart both in accordance with the operation installation instructions.

-Under Function #14 on the Falcon Base Unit, ensure that the RS232 baud rate is set in accordance with the Software specifications and modem specifications. Note, if the baud rate is not set properly the PC will not communicate with the Falcon.

14. Return Material Authorization Policy

When returning equipment to Preferred Technology, Inc. you must first call for a

Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. This number must be visible on the outside of the package as well as on the product inside the package.

Equipment requiring a RMA number includes, but is not limited to:

• Product returned for advance replacement

• Product returned for repair (in and out of warranty)

• Product returned for credit

PTI has implemented this policy in order to improve service to our customers.

RMA numbers help us to track receipt of packages, identify reasons for returns, insure prompt repair and return, insure proper replacement of damaged or faulty equipment, and insure proper credit. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us serve you better.

Should you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call us at 480-

941-1513.
