Operation Mode 6

This operation mode is intended for connecting a Key Reader or RFID reader, for controlling an electric lock, which control both relay outputs. You can also connect one or two networked lock cylinders, which cannot control relays.

An example use case is an alarmed door where an electric lock is controlled by a reader, which also bypasses the door magnet contact. A valid key or a push button:

  • Activates the impulse for relay output K1, which is connected to the electric lock.

  • Activates the relay output K2, which bypasses the magnet contact on the alarmed door, for 30 seconds, by default. This period can be changed through iLOQ Manager.

The K1 and K2 relays cannot be calendar-controlled. The idea is to prevent opening and bypassing the alarm of the high-security demand room door from iLOQ Manager.

In this case, the Door Module is programmed.

The table below describes the inputs controlling outputs K1 and K2 and whether the outputs are calendar-controllable, and if door status can be connected to the input.

Table 1. Operation Mode 6





You can connect any potential-free contact information, such as a magnetic door contact, to IN2. In this way, you can request for the door status information through iLOQ Manager and view the event log on the door status. If you have to obtain status information from, for example, both the lock strike plate and the door, you can serial connect the lock and door contacts. In this case, the status indicates whether the door is closed and locked, or not.

You can deploy this installation according to the instructions in Controlling an Electric Lock by a Key Reader or RFID Reader. However, set the OPTIONS dip switches as follows:
