Alarm Lock's new Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock is a standalone, single-door access control system incorporating only ProxCard® electronic access. The Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock is based on a Grade 1 cylindrical leverset that is UL Listed to the 10C Positive Pressure Specification. The latch bolt is UL Listed and three-hour fire rated. ADA-compliant lever handles are available. A six-pin tumbler cylinder with the SC1 keyway is furnished with the keyed outside models.

This Alarm Lock Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock does not have a keypad, eliminating the surface-mounted electronics. The concealed electronics provide increased vandal resistance as well as a weatherproof lock, capable of being installed in outdoor applications. Additional features are non-volatile memory, real-time clock, a programmable relay for operating an auxiliary electronic lock and up to 2,000 ProxCard IDs. The PL3000 is capable of reading most HID proximity cards and key fobs using 26-48 bit formats. For our purposes, proximity cards and key fobs both function identically and will be identified as ProxCards.

PROGRAMMING

The PL3000 Prox Lock can be programmed using the nine provided Function Cards or with Alarm Lock Windows-based software. Partial programming is performed directly at the lock with Function Cards. To activate Function Card programming, these cards must be enrolled when the PL3000 is first powered. Function Card programming enables entry and removal of ProxCards; toggling into and out of Passage Mode; toggling into and out of Total User Lockout Mode; printing audit trail; and enabling and resetting the "One-Time-Only" ProxCard. Up to 1,700 user ProxCards can be added. In addition, a "One-Time-Only" Service Card becomes disabled after use. Function Card programming requires the proximity card in order to remove it from the Prox Lock's memory.

The Function Card programming does not require a computer. However, programming of groups, scheduled events, or functions involving the real-time clock and calendar must be done via computer. While Function Card programmed users do not have time constraints, an audit trail provides a log of all electronic activity. The audit log can be retrieved from the PL3000 directly from the lock to a hand-held infrared printer (AL-IR1).

Full programming requires Alarm Lock DL-Windows™ version 3.04B software and a personal computer. Using this software, each PL3000 Prox Lock can have up to 2,000 users operating within up to 500 scheduled events that use the real-time clock and calendar features. Up to 1,999 users can be assigned to the four groups. In addition, there is a "One-Time-Only" Service Card that becomes disabled after use. Programming can be transferred to the PL3000 using the Personal Computer interface or the handheld Data Transfer Module (AL-DTM II). Data can be retrieved from the PL3000 directly from the lock to a Personal Computer, the Data Transfer Module, or the hand-held infrared printer.

INSTALLATION

For the purpose of this article, we will install a Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock and program the unit using the nine Function Cards. The PL3000 Prox Lock requires a 2-1/8" diameter cross bore opening and the default backset is 2-3/4". Dead latches are available to accommodate a 2-3/8" backset. Additional cross bore openings are required including two 3/8" diameter thru holes, a 1" diameter cross bore hole for the wiring, and two 3/8" diameter cross bore holes for securing the inside and outside assemblies.

For this installation, we will be installing the lock using existing door prep onto a 1-3/4" thick wood mount. The lock will be installed as a standalone unit without external power or remote release.

Step 1. Remove the inside lever from the lock and slide off the inside trim assembly.

Step 2. Install the dead latch using two provided Phillips head screws.

Step 3. Slide the motor wire through the 2-1/8" cross bore hole.

Step 4. Slide the remaining wires through the 1" diameter hole.

Step 5. Slide the outside assembly onto the door, making sure the latch mechanism engages into the lock body and the wires are not cut or pinched.

Step 6. Slide the inside rose plate over the spindle.

Step 7. Pull the motor wire through one of the two slots in the rose plate. Make sure the slots face up before installing the two 1" pan head screws.

Step 8. Slide the remaining wires through the opening in the inside mounting plate and secure the plate using the two flat head screws. Make sure the wires are not cut or pinched.

Step 9. Place the inside trim over the spindle. Secure using the two thru bolts and the two Phillips head screws. Make sure the wires are not cut or pinched.

Step 10. Tape the stripped ends of the wires.

Step 11. Cut open a corner of the clear Dielectric Grease container. Place a small amount of grease onto the female portion of the motor connector. Attach the two halves together.

FUNCTION CARD START-UP

At this point, the Alarm Lock Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock is ready for start-up using the Function Cards. The following steps are to ready the PL3000 for enrolling ProxCards.

Step 1. Number the nine provided ProxCards one through nine. These cards will be the Function Cards that will enroll and control the operation of the Prox Lock.

Step 2. Attach the two white wire connectors together. The white wires from the lock are labeled "Remote Release."

Step 3. Short the two white wires together for 10 seconds to discharge the capacitors. Remove the connector.

Step 4. Attach the male shunt connector into the yellow wire female connector. The male shunt connector has yellow wire that loops back into the connector.

Step 5. Place a small amount of grease onto the female portion of the battery connector. Attach the two halves together.

The lock will immediately sound three short beeps. If beeps are not heard, repeat steps 1 through 4. Next, the lock will sound one slow beep for every second required to clear the memory. This can take a few seconds. After the memory has been cleared and the system is reset, the LED will alternately flash red and green.

Step 6. Remove the yellow wire shunt connector. The LED will continue to flash red and green. The Prox Lock is ready to enroll the function cards.

IMPORTANT: The number one ProxCard must be presented within 30 seconds of removing the yellow shunt connector. Presenting a ProxCard is placing the card within an inch of the black plastic on the exterior trim of the Prox Lock.

Step 7. Present the number one ProxCard to the Prox Lock. The lock will sound five slow beeps. The LED will flash rapidly. The lock is ready to enroll the ProxCards by presenting them one at a time.

Step 8. Present the number one ProxCard. When the card is enrolled, the LED will flash green twice and beep twice, indicating the card has been enrolled successfully.

Step 9. Continue to present the number two through nine ProxCards. As each card is enrolled, the LED will flash green two times and beep two times indicating the card has been enrolled successfully.

Once the ninth card has been successfully enrolled, the lock is ready to use.

Function Card 1 initiates PC communications.

Function Card 2 initiates Data Transfer Module communications.

Function Card 3 initiates entry of new proximity cards starting at User 301 through User 2000

Function Card 4 initiates removal of the next present proximity card.

Function Card 5 toggles passage mode.

Function Card 6 initiates infrared printing of audit trail log.

Function Card 7 toggles total user lockout mode.

Function Card 8 enables and resets Function Card 9.

Function Card 9 is the "One-Time-Only" Service Card. After use, this card is disabled until reset with Function Card 8.

ENROLLING PROXCARDS

For the first step, we will enroll ProxCards for users in order to gain access. Before enrolling any ProxCards, prepare a paper with numbers starting at 301 and continuing in order. This paper will be used to write down the number on each proximity card, the user who will be assigned the card, and the date. When viewing the audit log, it is important to know the proximity card number in order to identify the user.

Enrolling User ProxCards

Step 1. Present Function Card 3 to the Prox Lock. The green LED will flash continuously and the lock will beep.

Step 2. Present the first ProxCard to be enrolled. The beeping will momentarily stop and the red LED will flash, indicating the card has been enrolled. The first ProxCard will be assigned User 301. Once enrolled, the green LED will flash and the beeping will start.

Step 3. Repeat step two for the remaining ProxCards to be enrolled. ProxCards must be presented within 30 seconds of the previous card or the lock will automatically end the enrollment sequence. When the enrollment sequence ends, the beeping and flashing will stop.

There is built-in protection against attempting to enroll a ProxCard that has already been enrolled. When this occurs, the red LED will flash five times while five beeps occur. The PL3000 Prox Lock will then exit the enrollment sequence.

To verify a ProxCard is valid, present the card to the Prox Lock. If the card is valid, the green LED will flash two times and two beeps will sound. If the card is invalid, the red LED will flash seven times and seven beeps will sound.

Deleting User ProxCards

To delete a User ProxCard, the card must be presented to the lock. If the card is not available, all lock programming must be deleted in order to delete the User ProxCard.

Step 1. Present Function Card 4 to the Prox Lock. The green LED will flash continuously and the lock will beep.

Step 2. Present the first ProxCard to be deleted. When presented, the beeping will momentarily stop, and the red LED will flash indicating the card has been deleted. The Prox Lock exits the delete mode and is ready to control access.

To delete additional ProxCards, repeat steps one and two.

Once a ProxCard has been deleted, the user location is now empty. When additional ProxCards are enrolled, the lowest available user number is filled first.

Passage mode

To enter passage mode, present Function Card 5 to the Prox Lock. After unlocking, the green LED will flash two times and one beep. Then the red LED will flash. The Prox Lock is in passage mode.

To disable passage mode, present Function Card 5 to the Prox Lock an additional time. After relocking, the green LED will flash two times and one beep. Then the red LED will flash. The Prox Lock requires a valid card to gain electronic access.

Total user lockout mode

To enter total user lockout mode, present Function Card 7 to the Prox Lock. After locking, the green LED will flash two times and two beeps. Then the red LED will flash. The Prox Lock is in total user lockout mode. If a valid ProxCard is presented, six beeps sound and a combination of red and green LEDs flash, followed by four additional red LED flashes. If an invalid ProxCard is presented, the red LED will flash seven times and seven beeps will sound.

To leave total user lockout mode, present Function Card 5 to the Prox Lock an additional time. The PL3000 unlocks, the green LED flashes twice and one beep sounds. The PL3000 relocks and the red LED flashes. The Prox Lock resumes normal operation requiring a valid card to gain electronic access.

Service Card (Function Card 9)

To activate the One-Time-Only Service Card, present Function Card 8 to the lock. After unlocking, the green LED flashes twice, then beeps twice. After the door unlock delay time, the door locks and the red LED flashes. Function Card 9 is activated and will remain active indefinitely. When Function Card 9 is presented to the Prox Lock, the door will unlock, two green LEDs flash and two beeps sound.

Once the ProxCard has been used, if it is presented to the lock without first presenting Function Card 8, the lock will not unlock, six beeps will sound and a combination of red and green LEDs will flash, followed by four additional red LED flashes. To re-activate the One-Time-Only ProxCard, follow the instructions in the first paragraph.

VISUAL AND AUDIBLE FEEDBACK

The PL3000 Prox Lock provides visual and audible feedback when a ProxCard is presented. Chart 1 indicates the LED and sound responses for the following:

We recommend programming the Prox Lock and the ProxCards before the actual installation. This way you can provide the programmed cards to the end-user.

The Alarm Lock PL3000 Prox Lock is powered by five AA alkaline batteries. According to Alarm Lock, the typical life expectancy is 60,000 cycles. When low battery condition occurs, the LED will illuminate yellow and four-second beep will sound when a valid ProxCard is presented. These are the signals to replace the batteries in the battery pack.

The Alarm Lock Trilogy PL3000 is available with lever handles or knobs in four standard finishes. Custom finishes are available; consult the factory for more information.
