D1/D+/Data, may be used for D1 (Wiegand data), D+
(RS485 data), magnetic stripe data. Normal operating
voltage 0 to +5 V (absolute maximumis +12 V).
The RAS is connected to the ATS panel via the RS485 data
bus, up to 1.5 km from the control panel or the 4-door DGP.
Use the 2-pair twisted, shielded data cable (WCAT52/54 is
recommended). The shield of any bus cable must be
connected to system ground at one end only. The ATS111x
RAS is not provided with an Earth connection for this
purpose. If the bus is 'daisy-chained' to the RAS, ensure
that the shield of the cable is joined to provide continuity of
data cable shield.
Buzzer/Beeper, may be used for offline buzzer control.
Wire open or +5 to 12 V: buzzer off (absolute maximum is
+14 V).
Wire grounded (0 V): buzzer on.
Application depends on selection of RAS menu option 2 —
offline LED control. See programming.
Application depends on selection of RAS menu option 2 —
offline LED control (see programming). When not used for
two wire LED control, yellow wire may be used for
• RTE input when online to ATS,
• connection to a simple push button for operation in RTE
Only mode,
• connection to a button for use in RTE + Arm/Disarm
Button should be connected to GND. See 10—RTE (Egress)
Open collector output, configurable as Door output,
Tamper output, or magnetic stripe data present. This is a
low current output and must not be used to directly
energize high current door openers. (Absolute maximum is
14 V @ 50 mA)
When using a door control relay, always place a
suppression diode (e.g. a 1N4001) across the
relay coil.
Status LED indications (figure
Connected to ATS control panel or access control panel
Green: when all areas assigned to the RAS alarm
group are disarmed or when screensaver is active.
Flashing green when running on battery (mains power
off) or during unlock time when area disarmed.
Red: if all areas assigned to the RAS alarm group are
armed. Flashing red during unlock time when area
LED off: if at least one and less than all areas assigned
to the RAS alarm group are armed.
Yellow (ready)
Active when all zones in areas assigned to the RAS are
normal (or active if RAS configured as ATS1156).
Red (alarm)
Flashing when any areas assigned to the RAS is in
alarm state.
Connected to a Wiegand or Magnetic Stripe interface
Green: On when yellow wire is at 0 V.
Red: On when brown wire is at 0 V.
Yellow: On when yellow AND brown wire at 0 V.
LED off: When yellow and brown wire are between 5 –
14 V.
Not used
Not used
In offline mode, the TERM switch (DIP switch 5) must be 'off' (up).
DIP switches 1 to 4 are not used in offline mode.

Operating features

Night light
The reader will be dimly lit when enabled.
Beeper tone
Press and hold the * key while pressing the 1 key to raise the tone
frequency or the 2 key to lower the tone frequency.
Power up
Upon initial power up, the buzzer will sound two beeps indicating that
the internal non-volatile memory is OK. All of the area LEDs may
illuminate indicating that the system is armed. All areas must be
disarmed in order to enable access to the installer programming menu


General faults
No LED display or keypad backlight:
Verify the +13.8 and 0 V wire connections on both the RAS and the
power supply.
Verify power output on the control panel, 4-door DGP, or external
power supply.
All three status LEDs are flashing:
Verify the D+ and D- wire connections (may be reversed or open
Verify the address DIP switches of the RAS are set to the proper
Verify that the control panel or 4-door controller is polling the RAS
The RAS does not respond to a Smart Card:
The RAS may not be programmed correctly or card beep and LED
flash may be disabled. Refer Programming for details.
The Smart Card may not be programmed for use with the
particular system.
Rx and Tx LED Indications
Rx and Tx LEDs are provided on the circuit board to assist in fault
diagnosis and are visible when the rear plastic cover is removed.
The yellow Rx LED flashes to indicate polling data is being received
on the system bus from the panel. If the LED does not flash, the
control panel is not operational or the bus is faulty (usually cabling).
The red Tx LED flashes to indicate the RAS is replying to polling
from the control panel. If the Rx LED flashes but the Tx LED does
not, the RAS is not programmed to be polled in the control panel or
is addressed incorrectly.
Configuring the ATS 1197 RAS
To configure the RAS:
Press 19 [ENTER] followed by * 3 [ENTER.
Type the required RAS address (2 – 16). followed by [ENTER].
Select the RAS.
Disable the option 'LCD Arming Station'.
Enable the option '3 LED RAS'.
