sk acp notes general
SK-ACP Notes: General
  • Use Separate Power Supplies for the SK-ACP and the Locks
  • Use 24VDC/500mA or higher for the SK-ACP
  • Always close SK-NET before Windows to avoid communications issues
  • Cards and Facility Codes: up to 16 within the panel
    • Card ID numbers must be unique, even if multiple Facility Codes are used. The system checks the FC, but uses the ID number to identify cardholders
    • Facility code 12, ID #1-10 = FC 15, ID # 1-10
    • Should be: FC 12, ID # 1-10 and FC 15, ID # 11-20

(Facility codes should be kept to a minimum. More FC = less secure)

sk acp notes relays
Latch Relays

Location J1, J2

1 set of contacts can:

Unlock door

Activate Gate Operator

The other set can:

Shunt Alarm Contact

Start a video recorder

Auxiliary relays

Location J3, J4

May operate under variety of user defined conditions:

(i.e.) Error Alarm

Tamper Alarm

Door Bell

Door Held Open

Emergency Exit alarm


Programmed through SK-NET

SK-ACP Notes:Relays

Each Door has 1 “Latch” Relay and 1 “Aux” Relay, each with two sets of contacts





sk acp notes inputs
SK-ACP Notes: Inputs

NOTE: All inputs are configured as NO circuits

If NC is required ( “Door Monitor” only )

  • Disconnect power from panel
  • Remove jumper from pins 2, 3 on J10
  • Place jumper on pins 1, 2 on J10
  • Restore power
  • Test Door Monitor input

Each Reader may be associated with up to 2 inputs. These can monitor contact closures at Remote Switches, Door contacts, Vehicle presence detectors, etc.

  • Inputs defined through SK-NET (Tamper, Remote Open, Door Monitor, etc.)
  • Located at J1, J2 terminals 7, 9 and share common terminal 8




sk acp notes rs 232 connection
SK-ACP Notes: RS-232 Connection

RS-232 used to connect the COM port of a PC to a single SK-ACP, or

as a gateway to a series of SK-ACP’s

  • J7 or RJ11 Jack in center of the Board
  • Distance < 100’

NEVER connect a telephone line directly into the RJ11 Jack on the SK-ACP!





sk acp notes rs 485 connection
SK-ACP Notes: RS-485 Connection
    • Run CAT 5 Between J8 plugs (terminals 1, 2)
      • Distance between the PC ‘gateway’ and SK-ACP > 100’
        • 232/485 converter required (SK part# NET-CONV-P)
        • Twisted pair
    • Total Cable distance not to exceed 4000’
  • Terminal 3 is a signal GND. If connected to conductor of twisted pair this must be an insulated conductor and NOT connected to earth GND
    • Starts to become a consideration at approx 2000’

RS-485 Bus is used to link multiple SK-ACP units into a network




networking modules
Networking Modules

Plug-in Modules for SK-ACP

  • LAN Applications
    • SK-LAN-MOD
      • Use existing network infrastructure to monitor and control the AccessControl system
  • Wireless Applications
    • SK-WLS-MOD
      • Uses widely accepted 802.11g protocol (existing router and wireless system in place)
sk acp notes lan connection
SK-ACP Notes: LAN Connection


  • Embedded Devices (receive power from the SK-ACP)
    • Connect to J9 Connector
      • Disconnect Power from SK-ACP
      • Remove 2 pin jumper from J9 pins 6, 7
      • Plug in Module
      • SK-LAN-MOD connect Ethernet cable
      • Restore Power
    • Have available:
      • Hardware Address
      • Unique IP Address



sk acp notes power and batteries
SK-ACP Notes: Power and Batteries
  • RK-WM/ RK-WS readers 24VDC, 500mA
  • RK-WL 24VDC, 1.5Amp

(Basic config powered with SK-ACP-PS: 24VDC 500mA and a 1.9AH backup battery)

Do not energize SK-ACP until all connections are made

SK-ACP must be connected to source of low voltage power

5 main steps in system setup
5 Main Steps in System Setup
  • Establish communications to the readers.
  • Setup any or all restrictions for times of access.
  • Assign user with cards numbers for any restrictions necessary.
  • Setup any inputs or outputs for special requirements.
  • Keep track of who uses the reader, time, date, and area of entrance.
