The following illustration identifies the placement of Single io board terminal blocks and their basic functions.
Installing a Strike to a Door Controller
The following illustration identifies the location of Cloud Node board connections.
When installing an electric strike, 18/2 shielded wire is recommended. Pull the 18/2 shielded wire through the opening of the box enclosure, making sure the wire ends are stripped and prepped for installation.
Remove the Reader 1 or Reader 2 terminal block and insert and secure the red wire from the strike into the positive output. Replace the terminal block.
Fail-Safe or Fail-Secure Configuration
Locking devices can be either "fail-safe" or "fail secure". A fail-secure locking device remains locked when power is lost. An electric strike replaces the fixed strike faceplate often used with a latch bar. It normally presents a ramped surface to the locking latch allowing the door to close and latch just like a fixed strike.
Remove the Main Relay terminal block.
For a fail-safe configuration, insert and secure the black wire into Normally Closed (NC). Replace the terminal block.
For a fail-secure configuration, insert and secure the black wire into Normally Open (NO). Replace the terminal block.
Install a jumper over the pins next to the Main Relay. In the case of cutting negative, place the jumper on the top two pins. This will force a negative polarity out of the main relay.
A diode is a standard semiconductor device integral to the safe and proper function of the door controller. It acts as a grounding tool, allowing the flow of current in one direction only. When a door strike is called, requested, or sent, the coil sends a spike (also called “kickback voltage”) down the line with as much as 50,000 volts. Without a diode semiconductor, this kickback voltage would damage the control equipment. When properly installed, the diode keeps kickback voltage localized at the lock.
To protect your equipment against electrical kickback, the diode must be installed across the DC powered lock, at the strike, between positive (+) and ground (-). DC voltage is polarized. The diode must be installed in the direction shown in the illustrations: Gray stripe to positive (+), black to negative or ground (-).
IMPORTANT: The diode MUST be installed as close to the lock as possible. The best scenario (if possible) is directly across screw terminals on the lock (as shown in the first image). Another option is to splice the diode in parallel (as shown in image two below), connect it to the positive (+) and negative (-) strike wires using dolphin connectors, and crimp the wires. For questions or detailed information, please contact the ProdataKey Technical Support staff.
Installing the diode backward for a strike can cause the Cloud Node or the io door controller to reboot. A damaged or blown (dead) diode can act as if there is no diode, installed backward, or show incorrect data in the logs such as a card scan when the strike returns to the default state.
Providing Power to the Board
Now that the controller is wired and ready to go, the board needs to be powered.
Pull an 18/2 wire through the knockout and into the enclosure. Make sure the wire ends are stripped and prepped for installation.
Remove the 12-24V AC/DC terminal block and insert and secure the red and black wires. Replace the terminal block. NOTE: The single door controller is not polarity sensitive.
The Single io accepts 12-24V AC or DC, however, it is most common to use the included transformer to power the controller. Connect the 18/2 wire from the controller to the transformer.
Attach the red wire to positive, and the black wire to negative. Plug the transformer in, and the board will then be powered.
Single io Power Installation
It’s always important to install a backup battery. The recommended battery for a single door controller is a 12V 1.2ah battery.
Plug the battery leads into the power terminal block (red wire to +; black wire to -) as shown and slide the battery into the enclosure.
After the door hardware has been installed and the single io has been powered up, it is time to secure the wiring. To do this, reconnect the door. Secure the lid by inserting and fastening the supplied screws. Your single io has now been installed and is ready to be configured.
