STEP 1-MOUNTiNG THE UNiT
Page 3 tells you what tools and instruments you will need to install your unit and presents a parts check list. Make sure
to have all the tools listed. Upon opening the box, check off the items enclosed with the unit. If any items are missing
from your unit, contact American Access Systems immediately.
Mounting the unit to your own pedestal
Your unit comes with a square mounting flange found in the bottom of the box along with four carriage bolts and four
hex nuts. The square mounting flange may be welded to your pedestal and the flange bolt pattern will align with the
back of the unit. Place the unit up to the flange and insert the carriage bolts from the back side. Secure the unit to
the flange by tightening down the hex nuts with a 7/16” socket.
Mounting the unit to an AAS gooseneck (18001) or double height (18003)pedestal
Locate the four carriage bolts and four hex nuts found inside the unit box. Place the unit up to the pedestal flange
and insert the four carriage bolts from the backside. Secure the unit to the pedestal using the four hex nuts and a
7/16” socket. The extra square mounting flange may be discarded.
Mounting the unit to an AAS diagonal pedestal (18002)
Locate the four bolts provided with the pedestal. Place the unit up to the pedestal so that the unit hole pattern aligns
with the pretapped pedestal bolt holes. Insert the pedestal bolts from the inside of the unit and tighten down with a
7/16” socket. The extra square mounting flange, four carriage bolts, and four hex nuts provided inside the unit box
may be discarded.
STEP 2-SYSTEM CONNECTiONS
Study the WIRING COLOR CODE chart below and then proceed to the hookup steps.
ACU HARNESS COLOR CODES
6-12 volts DC
(Used for external alarm)
Page 5 American Access Systems / Security Brands, Inc.
(A). Your DKLP control unit operates on 6 to 14 volts DC. Measure the voltage from the power source to make sure
it falls within these tolerances. Locate the Red and Black wire on the ACU HARNESS and with the power off connect
Red to positive (+) and Black to negative (-).
NOTE: If you are using the optional AAS-12vdc transformer, cut the end connector from the transformer cable and
discard. Using appropriate wire nuts, connect black to black and black/white to red.
(B). Connect the device to be controlled to the appropriate control leads of the ACU HARNESS (See table 1).
(C). Double Check your connections. When you are sure that everything is hooked up correctly, apply power to the
unit. A BEEP should be heard when you press a key on the keypad.
THE MASTER CODE AND ACCESS CODES
Depending on which model you have, your unit may be programmed with multiple (4 digit) ACCESS CODES, the
number of access codes is reflected in the model number (eg. 19-100(i) = 100 access codes.). The MASTER CODE is a
4 digit programmable code used for accessing the program mode.
Note: The model number of the unit is located on the inside face of the unit.
SETTiNG OR RESETTiNG THE MASTER CODE
To set or reset the master code back to the factory default of 1 2 5 1 should you ever loose or forget you master code.
To do this follow these steps: (SEE PAGE 7 FOR LOCATION DIAGRAM)
(1). Disconnect power from the unit by pulling the power harness away from the board.
(2). Reconnect power while holding down the PROGRAM/RESET button.
(3). A single keybeep will be heard from the unit indicating that the master has been reset
GOODBEEPS AND ERRORBEEPS
A standard beep will be heard each time a key is pressed. A “GOODBEEP” is represented by a series of quick beeps
in succession. An “ERRORBEEP” is represented by a single long beep.
THE iDLE MODE
The idle mode is the normal mode of operation. When in this mode the unit sits and waits for data from the keypad.
If a key is pressed from the keypad, you will have approximately 3 seconds between each keypress before the unit
THE PROGRAM MODE
The program mode is the mode of operation in which you will enter/change your access code. Upon entry, a
GOODBEEP will heard. A GOODBEEP will also be heard when you exit the program mode unless a keypress timeout
occurs in which case you will receive an ERRORBEEP. The program mode is accessed by entering the “MASTER CODE”
from the keypad. If the master code is valid, you will receive a GOODBEEP from the unit. In this mode you will have
approximately 15 seconds between keypresses. If this time is exceeded, you will receive an ERRORBEEP and the unit
will exit the program mode and return to the idle mode. To exit the program mode at any time, press #.
THE * AND # KEYS
The * and # keys serve specific functions while in the idle or program mode. The * key is always the clear key. You
should use this key if you make an entry error. The # key also serves as the clear key in the idle mode. In the program
mode however, it serves as the exit key and will at any time when depressed, exit you from the program mode.
A person desiring a access to the program mode will enter the present MASTER CODE. If the master code is valid a
GOODBEEP will be heard prompting the person to enter a number corresponding to the SUB-MODE, eg. (MASTER
CODE) + (Number corrresponding to Sub-Mode). Once in the program mode the individual will have approximately
15 seconds between keypresses or the unit will sound an ERRORBEEP and exit the program mode. NOTE: An access
code log sheet is provided on page 8 which can be photo-copied. A good source for access codes is the phone
book or the last 4 digits of social security numbers.
Page 6 American Access Systems / Security Brands, Inc.
Sub-Mode 1 (Enter New Access Codes)
To enter new access codes enter the MASTER CODE, followed by 1, then enter each new ACCESS CODE you wish to
program into the unit.
(MASTER CODE) + 1 + (ACCESS CODE) + (ACCESS CODE) etc... (# to exit)
Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and re-enter the correct data. You may continue entering
access codes until the memory is full or the # is pressed. You may select any 4 digit access code that is not already in
use by the system. The unit will respond with a GOODBEEP with the acceptance of each new access code. If you do
not receive a GOODBEEP after the entry of an access code, you must select a new access code as it is already in use
by the system. When the memory becomes filled, you will receive a GOODBEEP indicating the acceptance of the
last access code entered and then the unit will sound an ERRORBEEP and automatically exit you from the program
NOTE: You will not be able to enter this mode if memory is full and will receive an ERRORBEEP.
Sub-Mode 2 (Delete Access Codes)
To delete any access code from memory enter the MASTER CODE, followed by 2, and then each access code to be
(MASTER CODE) + 2 + (CODE TO BE DELETED) + (NEXT CODE TO BE DELETED) etc... (# to Exit)
Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and re-enter the correct data. You may continue deleting
access codes in a successive manner. The unit will respond with a GOODBEEP with the successful deletion of each
access code. If you do not receive a GOODBEEP the access code entered could not be found in memory and the
unit will wait for you to enter another code to be deleted.
Sub-Mode 3 (Change Master Code)
To change the master code enter the PRESENT MASTER CODE, followed by 3, and then the NEW MASTER CODE.
(PRESENT MASTER CODE) + 3 + (NEW MASTER CODE)
Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and re-enter the correct data. You may select any 4 digit
code as your new master code that is not already in use by the system. The unit will respond with a GOODBEEP upon
acceptance of the new master code and automatically exit from the program mode. If the unit does not respond
with a GOODBEEP, you must select a different code as it is already in use by the system.
Sub-Mode 4 (Set Relay Output Time from 1/2 to 9 seconds)
To set the relay output time in seconds enter the PRESENT MASTER CODE, followed by 4, and then the relay output
time in seconds.
NOTE: “0” = 1/2 seconds.
(PRESENT MASTER CODE) + 4 + (RELAY OUTPUT TiME)
Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and re-enter the correct data. You may enter any single digit
value corresponding from 1/2 to 9 seconds of total length output time. Please note that when you enter “0”, the
output time is set to 1/2 seconds.
Sub-mode 0 (Clear memory) !!!! WARNiNG ALL ACCESS CODES WiLL BE DELETED !!!!
To delete all access codes from memory enter the MASTER CODE, followed by 0, and the re-enter the MASTER CODE.
(MASTER CODE) + 0 + (MASTER CODE)
Should you make an entry error, simply press the * key and re-enter the correct data. If the second entry of the
master code is correct there will be a short pause before a GOODBEEP is heard and then the unit will automatically
be exited from the program mode. If the second entry of the master code is incorrect, the unit will still respond with a
GOODBEEP indicating that it is exiting the program mode however, there will be no pause on the GOODBEEP and the
memory will not be erased.
NOTE: it should not generally be necessary to erase all access codes from memory unless codes are forgotten and
are occupying necessary memory space. A good log and maintenance of access codes should prevent this from
ever needing to be done.
