INTRODUCTION Your- new AAS unit is a high quality, programmable, commercial digital key control station which will control access to a passageway using 4 digit access codes. The Advantage DK incorporates state of the ail electronics to provide a product which is highly sophisticated yet inexpensive. Your unit incorporates the following features.

STEP 1 (MOUNTING THE UNIT)
page 3 states the tools and instruments needed to install your unit as well as a palls check list. Make sure to have all the tools listed. Upon opening the box, check off the items enclosed with the unit. If any items are missing from your unit, contact American Access Systems immediately.
Mounting (lie unit to your own pedestal Your unit comes with a square mounting flange found in the bottom of the box along with four carriage bolts and four hex nuts. The square mounting flange may be welded to your pedestal and the flange bolt pattern will align with the unit. Place the unit up to the flange and insert the four carriage bolts from the backside. Secure the unit to the flange.
Mounting the unit to an AAS gooseneck pedestal (18-001) or double height gooseneck (18-003) Locate the four carriage bolts and four hex nuts found inside the unit box. Place the unit up to the pedestal flange and insert the four carriage bolts from the backside. Secure the unit to the pedestal. The extra square mounting flange may be discarded.

STEP 2 (SYSTEM CONNECTIONS)
Wiring diagrams for your unit are presented on page 3. Usually, you will be interfacing the unit to a gate operator. However, a wiring diagram for interface to an electric door strike or mag lock is also provided. Carefully study the diagram which best suits your particular installation. On the following page, (page 5), are shown the wire harness color codes. After studying, go on to the hookup steps.


HARNESS COLOR CODES

Hookup Steps 
(A)
. Your unit operates between 11.5 volts minimum and 29 volts AC maximum. Measure your voltage to make sure it falls within these tolerances. Locate the two white wires on the main harness of the circuit board and, WITH THE POWER OFF, connect them to the power supply leads. Polarity need not he observed as the unit is rectified. 
(B). Connect the primary device to be controlled to the units primary relay control leads. If you are connecting to a gate operator or electric door strike use the BROWN and ORANGE leads. If you are connecting to a mag-lock or any device that requires power in the locked state, use the BROWN and BLUE leads. (See page 3). If you are interfacing to a secondary device, connect the units secondary relay control leads to the device.
(C). Double check your connections. When you are sure you have the unit hooked up correctly, apply power to the unit. If this is the FIRST TIME POWER UP of the unit, the unit will perform self diagnostics. After each test has passed, the unit will sound a beep. The unit will perform a total of 4 tests. The unit will then flash the LED's several times while it is performing a memory setup. Once all the tests have passed and the unit is set up correctly, you will hear a good beep from the unit. If the unit does not perform as above, quickly shut off power to the unit and contact your distributor or American Access Systems. NOTE: THE UNIT WILL ONLY PERFORM THE SELF DIAGNOSTICS ON THE FIRST TIME POWER UP. FROM THERE ON OUT THE UNIT WILL SOUND A GOOD BEEP EACH TIME POWER IS APPLIED.


ACCESS & FUNCTION CODES Depending on which model you have, your unit may be programmed with multiple (4 digit) access codes, the number of access codes is reflected in the model number (eg. ADV- I 5(i) 15 access codes). There are two different types of codes, access codes & function codes. Although the number of access codes will vary with each model, the number of function codes is always 3.

FUNCTION CODES

RESETTING THE UNIT

Your unit provides 2 different types of resets, a Unit Reset, and a Master Reset.
A Master Reset should be utilized in the event that you lose or forget your master code or if the unit is in the Latch or Sleep mode and the Latch or Sleep code is lost or forgotten. When a Unit Reset is performed the master code will be set back to 12 5 1.
A Unit Reset is provided should it ever become desirous to reset the unit back to the initial factory state. After a Master Reset has been performed the unit will DELETE ALL ACCESS & FUNCTION CODES and the master code will be set back to 12 5 1.

MASTER RESET
Follow these steps precisely. If you make an error, the unit will ERROR and you will have to start over.

The unit will issue a good beep and the master code will be set back to 12 5 1. If you previously were in the sleep or latch mode, the unit will be brought back to idle state.

UNIT RESET (!!!!! WARNING: ALL CODES WILL BE DELETED FROM MEMORY!!!!!) * (Please See pg. 6 for further information Follow these steps precisely. If you make an error, the unit will ERROR and you will have to start over.
Disconnect power from the unit by pulling the wire harness away from the board.
Reconnect power to the board while holding down the RESET button (See location diagram, pg. I I ).
Release Reset button & enter # (The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP)
Enter the MASTER CODE from the keypad. (The unit will flash the LED's several times and then go into an endless cycle of beeps)
Disconnect & Reconnect power to the unit. (The unit will go through the "First Time Power Up" sequence.

The idle mode The idle mode is the normal mode of operation. When in this mode the unit sits and waits for data from the keypad. When in this mode you will have approximately 4 seconds between keypresses. If this time is exceeded, you will receive an ERROR.

The program mode The program mode is the mode of operation in which you will enter, delete, or change your codes or set specific features of the unit. The program mode is accessed by entering the "MASTER CODE" from the keypad. You will receive a GOOD BEEP and the yellow LED will come on indicating that you are in the program mode. In this mode you will have approximately 30 seconds between key presses. If this time is exceeded, you will receive an ERROR and be exited from the program mode.

The * and # keys serve specific functions while in the idle or program mode. The * key is always the clear key and a double beep will be heard when depressed. You should use this key if you make an entry error. The 4 key also serves as the clear key in the idle mode. In the program mode however, it serves as the exit key and will at any time when depressed, exit you from the program mode.

PROGRAMMING
A person desiring access to the program mode will enter the present MASTER CODE. If the master code is valid the yellow LED will come on and the individual will be prompted with a GOOD BEEP to enter a number corresponding to a SUB-MODE, (MASTERCODE) + (Number corresponding to Sub-Mode). Once in the program mode, the individual will have 30 seconds between keypresses or the unit will ERROR and exit the program mode. A person desiring to exit the program mode may do so by simply pressing the # key at any time. There are 10 different SUB-MODES to choose from. They are as follows:

SUB-MODE DESCRIPTION

  1. Program Access Codes (Relay A)

  2. Delete Codes

  3. Change Master Code

  4. Set Sleep Code

  5. Set Latch Code

  6. Set Relay Output Times

  7. Program Access Codes (Relay B)

  8. Enable / Disable "3 Strikes-You're Out"

  9. Program Event Input

  10. Erase Memory

Sub-Mode 1 (Program Relay A Access Codes)
To program new Relay A access codes enter the following;
(MASTER CODE) + I + (NEW CODE) + (NEXT NEW CODE) etc to
exit).  Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may select any 4 digit code you wish. If you receive an ERROR after entry, you must select another code as it is already in use. The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP with the acceptance of each new Relay A code. You may continue entering Relay A codes until you finish (Press #), or the memory becomes full. You will automatically be exited from the program mode if the memory reaches capacity. When memory is full you will not be able to enter this Sub-Mode and will receive an ERROR if entry is attempted.

Sub-Mode 2 (Delete Codes) 
To delete codes enter the following;  (MASTER CODE) + 2 + (CODE TO BE DELETED)  Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may delete any access or function code that you wish with the exception of the MASTER CODE. If the code you wish to delete is not found in memory, the unit will respond with an ERROR and wait for another code to be entered. A GOOD BEEP will be sounded once the code has been found and deleted. You may continue deleting codes until you finish (Press #).

Sub-Mode 3 (Change Master Code)
To change your master code enter the following;  (present MASTER CODE) + 3 + (new MASTER CODE)  Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may select any 4 digit master code you wish. If you receive an ERROR, you must select another code as it is already in use. The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP with the acceptance of the new Master Code and you will be exited from the program mode. MAKE SURE TO WRITE THE NEW MASTER CODE DOWN.

Sub-Mode 4 (Set Sleep Code)
EXPLANATION: The sleep code is used to disable all Relay A and function codes from the keypad. This feature is most commonly used in applications where no entry is desired after hours. Relay B codes will still be valid from the keypad. By connecting both relays in parallel, managers may be assigned RelayB codes and still gain access, While in the SLEEP MODE, the yellow and red LED's will flash approximately once every 3 seconds. To initialize the system back to normal, simply re-enter the sleep code. Should you lose or forget
your sleep code and the unit is in the sleep mode see the Unit Reset instructions 

To program or change your sleep code enter the following, (MASTER CODE) + 4 + (SLEEP CODE)  Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may select any 4 digit sleep code you wish. If you receive an ERROR, you must select another code as it is already in use. The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP with the acceptance of the new Sleep Code and you will be exited from the program mode.

Sub-Mode 5 (Set Latch Code)
EXPLANATION: The Latch Code toggles the state of the main relay (A) of the circuit board.  The red LED will light if the relay is in the latched position. The latch code is useful in applications where the gate is desired to hold open. If the operator's close circuit is controlled by loops, timers, etc., they will be overridden by the latched state of the relay and the gate will hold open. An "OPEN-OVERRIDE" circuit must exist in the operator in order to utilize this
function. If your gate cycles when this code is entered, your operator is not set up to utilize this function. Your local dealer or distributor should be able to assist you if you have any specific questions.

To program or change your latch code enter the following;
(MASTER CODE) + 5 + (LATCH CODE)
Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may select any 4 digit latch code you wish. If you receive an ERROR, you must select another code as it is already in use. The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP with the acceptance of the new Latch Code and you will be exited from the program mode. When the latch code is entered the RED Led will light and the gate will hold open. When the latch code is entered again the RED Led will go off and the gate will close. NOTE: On gates with a timer to close the "TIMED DURATION" starts when the latch code is released.

Sub-Mode 6 (Set Relay Output Times) 
To set or change a relay output time enter the following;
(MASTER CODE) + 6 + (RELAY #) + (RELAY OUTPUT TIME) in seconds
The Relay # cot-responds to which relay to set. I = Relay A, 2 = Relay B. Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. Your output time is set on both relays from the factory at approximately 1/2 seconds "00". If a longer output time is desired, enter a two digit number corresponding to the number of seconds between "00" and "99". By entering "00" the output time is set to approximately 1/2 seconds which is ideal for most operators.

Sub-Mode 7 (Program Relay B Access Codes) 
To program new Relay B access codes enter the following;
(MASTER CODE) + 7 + (NEW CODE) + (NEXT NEW CODE) etc (# to
exit)  Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. You may select any 4 digit code you wish. If you receive an ERROR after entry, you must select another code as it is already in use, The unit will respond with a GOOD BEEP with the acceptance of each new Relay B code. You may continue entering Relay B codes until you finish (Press #), or the memory becomes full. You will automatically be exited from the program mode if the memory reaches capacity. When memory is full you will not be able to enter this Sub-Mode and will receive an ERROR if entry is attempted.
* Sub-Mode 8 (Enable/Disable 3 Strikes-You're Out).

EXPLANATION: This feature is desirable to keep unwanted persons from successively entering codes until they "hit" a programmed access code. By selecting this function you enable a 1 1/2 minute lock out period if 3 incorrect codes are entered successively within a 3 minute period. When this occurs, the LED's will flash and a high pitched alarm will be generated from the unit for 30 seconds. The unit will then shutdown for 1 minute.
To toggle the 3 strikes-you're out feature enter the following;
(MASTER CODE) + 8 (*currentstate) + (MASTER CODE)
*current state single beep 3 strikes enabled double beep 3 strikes disabled
Should you make a code entry error, simply press the * key and enter the correct code. After you have selected mode 8, the unit will respond with a single or double beep. A single beep indicate-, that the 3 strikes-you're out feature is presently enabled. A double beep indicates that the 3 strikes-you're out feature is presently disabled. The unit will then issue a GOOD BEEP and wait for the master code. If you wish to toggle the 3 strikes your out state, enter the master code. If you do not wish to toggle the state, enter# to exit.

Sub-Mode 9 (Program Event Input)
EXPLANATION: The event input allows the user to tic in an external device to control specific functions of the unit. The event input can be programmed in I of 4 ways:
REMOTE INACTIVE: Relay A codes may be made inactive by an external switch. When inactive all relay A codes will be disabled. The relay B, program, and function codes will still be accessible to the end user. ARMING CIRCUIT: This is normally used to allow access in parking situations. An external vehicle detector may be connected to the input. Relay A codes would only become active on the presence detect of a vehicle. If an entry attempt to activate relay A is made while the input is not activate, entry will be denied. The relay B, program, and function codes will still be accessible to the end user.
REMOTE OPEN: A relay may be activated using a pushbutton or switch. The relay to activate is user selectable. This function operates even when the unit is in sleep, latch, or program mode
DISABLE: Disables the Event Input.
