Access Control
The PRO series are general purpose remote control systems that uses a highly secure transmission
protocol for reliable operation.
The receiver unit is IP65 rated with integral power supply containing industrial standard ‘DIN Rail’
‘receiver’ and ‘relay output’ modules (interchangeable). Modules with higher switching capability are also
available separately.
The relay outputs may be user set to operate as latching or momentary. Output 1 may be timed from 1-15
minutes.
Additional transmitters can be added using the easy learn procedure. Any transmitter switch can be
mapped to any individual or combination of receiver output(s).

We regularly supply pre-wired / bespoke systems; please contact our sales department for further assistance
Receiver Unit
The receiver consists of interchangeable modules which are connected via ribbon cables. (as shown below)
Antenna
The Antenna is held internally, this is to save drilling the enclosure on the top. This may have some effect to
the range for specific applications which may require the antenna externally mounted. At all times please
ensure that the antenna is pointing in a vertical direction and away from high interference sources.

1 Pre-Configuring the Remote Control System
There are three Steps:
1. Pre-Configure the 210Rx to operate with a type of Transmitter
2. Map the Transmitter(s) switch(es) to the 210Rx output(s)
3. Set the 210Rx outputs to be latching, momentary or timed.
1.1 Pre-Configure the 210Rx to operate with a Transmitter Series
1. Ensure option link J8 is open.
2. Apply power to the 210Rx, All output LEDS flash alternately. This is factory reset default state.
3. Briefly Press any switch on the transmitter.
The 210Rx will now confirm this by flashing LED 1 to show it is configured for use with a handheld
transmitter.
Note: This will now happen at each power on.

1.2 Mapping a Transmitter Switch to a 210 Receiver Output
One or many transmitter switches may be mapped to one or many 210Rx outputs. Decide which switch on the
Transmitter is to operate which output channel on the 210 receiver/decoder.
1. Press the 210 Rx learn switch until the led lights the desired output channel.
2. Operate the desired transmitter switch briefly
3. The LED on the 210Rx will extinguish.
4. Operate the desired transmitter switch briefly again
5. The LED on the 210Rx will turn on briefly and then extinguish.
6. The selected transmitter switch will operate the 210Rx output channel.
This procedure may be repeated for each transmitter and each 210Rx output required.
1.3 Configuration of the 210Rx Receiver Decoder Outputs
Option links LK 1-16 configure the operation of the outputs. Please note that the link status is read only on
‘power up’ and thus after changing the links, power must be removed and re-applied.
LK 1–16
Output 1
Outputs 2 -16
Open
Mom or Timed
Mom (The O/P operates for as long as the transmitter switch is held on)
Connected
Latch or Timed
Latch (The O/P changes state each time the Transmitter is operated)
1.3.1 Setting the Timed output (Channel 1)
This is set by VR1 with a delay of from 0 to 15 minutes. To set the time delay:
1. Remove power.
2. Place a shorting link header on option link J8.
3. Apply power
4. Depress and release the learn button twice.
5. The 210Rx will then enter the ‘time set mode’
6. LED1 will illuminate, indicating that output 1 time delay is to be set.
7. Using a fine screwdriver, adjust potentiometer VR1.
8. An indication of the time delay set is shown by LED’s 9-15.
After setting the timed output the unit must be powered down and option link header J8 removed before
it can be used.
1.4 Erasing the 210Rx Receiver Outputs (Return to Factory Default State)
1.
2.
3.
4.
To completely erase the 210Rx decoder’s memory, press and hold the 210Rx learn switch.
The learn LED (LED 17) will illuminate
Hold the Learn switch until the learn LED extinguishes (approx 10 seconds).
Release the learn button and all the output LED’s 1-16 will now flash alternately to indicate that all encoder
data has been erased and the 210Rx has returned to factory default state.
Note: It is not possible erase individual transmitters.

2 Antenna and Range
2.1 Antenna
The system includes an antenna. It is situated within the enclosure (to save penetrating the enclosure)
If the range is inadequate then it may be necessary to mount the antenna protruding from the enclosure. This
may be easily fitted using the provided panel mount BNC socket. The antenna cable may be extended however
please note that typically there is a 50% range reduction with every 3metres of coax cable used!
For increasing range performance a +3dB gain antenna is available. This is supplied with wall mounting bracket
and 2metres of coax cable, it plugs in directly to the BNC connector.
2.2 Range
The antenna choice and position directly controls the system range. Keep it clear of other metal in the system.
The best position is protruding from the top of the product. This is often not desirable for practical or ergonomic
reasons and thus a compromise may be needed. If an internal antenna must be used then try to keep it away
from other metal items, and in particular large ones like transformers, batteries and PCB tracks and earth
planes.
Note that the space around the antenna is as important as the antenna itself. All radio systems are dependant
on a radio signal being received through airspace.
The range quoted is the optimal in direct line of sight without obstacles and in good atmospheric conditions.
2.3 Signal integrity
In systems where many encoders are in close proximity there may be occasions when, due to signal overlay
between encoders, it is difficult or impossible to guarantee system integrity. In such circumstances it is the
responsibility of the installer to ensure that the system performance is adequate for the purposes of the
installation.
