This section explains how to enable the standard implementation of the Global Unlock feature using the dedicated Global Unlock input on the primary PXL controller.
The dedicated Global Unlock input is physically located between pins 5 and 6 of TB4 on the PXL controller. This input can alternatively be designated as an Auxiliary RTE input, but this function is automatically disabled when Global Unlock is enabled.
The Global Unlock input is a normally-open input that is active when closed. When the input activates it automatically unlock all online and functioning doors on the PXL network; it does NOT allow you to select certain doors to not respond to the global unlock command. Since this feature is hardware controlled it is not dependent on the PC in any way.
You can use the Situation Manager implementation of Global Unlock to control which doors respond to the Global Unlock command.
Note: If a Secondary controller is offline when a Global Unlock or Global Lock command is issued, the Secondary controller has missed the unlock/lock command and will not change state when the Secondary controller comes back on line
Note: Setting the Global Unlock Type to “Unlock All Doors” configures the system to the standard implementation of Global Unlock/Lock. If this value is set to “Use Individual Door Settings” control is shifted to the Situation Manager in Doors.NET and the information in this document no longer applies.
Note: The Global Unlock feature is not Fire Marshall approved. Check your local codes for fire safety management.
Note: Global Unlock takes precedence over ALL lock or unlock commands. Any attempt to restore an Auto Unlock/Lock time schedule while the Global Unlock feature is active will be ignored by the primary controller.
