Mounting

You can choose between 2 base versions that differ in depth:

Base version Depth Purpose Total reader depth including front
Standard 12 mm Mount on a single gang box 14 mm
Wall mount 19 mm Mount directly on the wall 21 mm

The following instructions apply to both base versions.

To mount an ACCESS200:

  1. Fix the base using the mounting holes provided.
  2. Connect the reader based on the connector and pin specification.

    Caution

    • Screws: Use 3 mm diameter countersunk head screws or similar. Make sure the screw heads do not stand out more than 1 mm from the base surface to avoid contact between screw heads and electronics or potting material when snapping on the front.
    • Stranded wires: When using stranded wires for connection, make sure there are no wires outside the cages of the pluggable cage clamp to avoid short circuit connections and damage to the electronics.

If you need to deploy configuration

  1. Fit the front of the housing on the base and close the housing.
    When placing the light pipe on top of the LED, some leeway is permitted thanks to the translucent housing that diffuses the light.

  2. If you use a bus protocol such as OSDP, set a bus address on the reader.

  3. Deploy the reader configuration using BALTECH ConfigCard.

If readers are already configured

  1. If you use a bus protocol such as OSDP, set a bus address on the reader.
  2. Fit the front of the housing on the base and close the housing.
    When placing the light pipe on top of the LED, some leeway is permitted thanks to the translucent housing that diffuses the light.

Avoid damage when reopening the housing

The housing is not designed for frequent opening and closing as this is usually not necessary once the reader is mounted. Instead, the housing is designed to be slim and not too easy to open as this helps protect against vandalism. So, if you do need to reopen the housing, take appropriate care.

To avoid damage:

  • Use a wide screwdriver and apply force over the whole snapper width.
  • Once you've pushed the snapper slightly upwards, remove the front of the housing by pulling its lower edge towards you.

If you apply high upwards force to the snapper and pull the front towards you at the same time, the snapper will break off quickly.

If the snapper has broken off:

You can alternatively close the housing with a

  • standard Philips cross-head screw (2.9 x 6.5 mm sheet metal screw)
  • security screw (requires a security screw driver)

You can order both screw types from us. If you choose the security screw, you'll also need to order a tool bit for the security screw driver.

Avoid rain interference on outdoor keypad readers

Our readers are designed so that water drops will drip off before becoming large enough for interference. However, if the surface of an outdoor-mounted keypad reader becomes dusty or the reader is mounted at an acute angle to the floor, drops may become larger and cause interference: Similar to your smartphone screen, large water drops on the reader surface may be sensed as a tap with a finger or prevent a tap in another area from being detected correctly.

Recommendations:

  • Mount the reader upright/perpendicular to the floor.
  • Mount the reader at a protected spot or add protection against direct exposure to rain.
  • If this isn't possible, wipe the reader on a regular basis or let users know to wipe over the surface in case of malfunction.
