Virtual Keypad


interfeisi M1XEPEthernet interface

The ELK-M1XEP is an Ethernet Device Server with a RS-232 Serial Port Interface. It may be used to connect a Control in the M1 Family to an Ethernet network using TCP-IP protocol for programming, remote control and monitoring. It features a secure embedded web server, with a user interface built on a Java applet, and email event notification. A software setup utility is built into ElkRP (version 1.5.0 or later) for configuring the connection setup, network password, etc. The M1XEP is factory defaulted to obtain a dynamic IP address from a DHCP server (i.e. Ethernet switch, cable modem, etc.), however it may also be setup with a static IP address.

ELK M1EZ8MSI Main Serial Interface

interfeisi EZ8MSIMain Serial Interface

The ELK-M1EZ8MSI Main Serial Port Interface allows direct RS-232 Serial Communications to an M1EZ8 Control for Upload/Download programming, and for interfacing with other Computer type devices. Also required when adding the M1XEP Ethernet Port to an M1EZ8 Control. The speed of this port is software selectable from 300 to 115,200 baud.


Adds A High Speed RS-232 Serial Port To Any M1EZ8 Control
Allows Computers And Other Serial Devices To Communicate With The M1EZ8 Control
Self-Powered From The Control
Modular Connectors For Long Term Reliability
Powerline Lighting Pass-through Connector For PSC-05 (or equiv.) Interface


Gold Plated RJ45 8-Wire Modular Connectors
DB9F Female 9-Pin RS-232 Serial Connector
Operating Voltage: 12 Volts D.C.
Current Draw: Less Than 5mA
Housing Dimensions:
4.375″ x 3.0″ x 1.125″
Circuit Board Dimensions: 3.5″ x 2.75
NOTE: The M1EZ8MSI is not required in order to connect ELK-M1XSP Serial Port Expanders to the 4-wire data bus. The M1XSP Expanders can provide RS-232 Serial Ports (up to 7) from the M1EZ8, however only M1EZ8MSI Main Serial Port Interface is capable of operating at a speed above 38,400 baud which is optimum for fast upload/download programming and for interfacing with an M1XEP Ethernet Interface.

ELK M1KAM Single Door Access Module

interfeisi M1KAMSingle Door Access Module

A single door access interface module for use on the M1 and M1EZ8 Control Panels. The M1KAM connects to the 4 wire keypad data bus in place of a traditional M1 Keypad. Since the maximum number of keypads on an M1 or M1EZ8 is 16, the maximum number of M1KAM modules (and controlled doors) is 16, minus any installed keypads. Even though an M1 Keypad can accept a 26 bit access reader, the M1KAM is a more powerful and less expensive access solution. For example; the M1KAM includes a relay (door unlock) output with form „C“ dry contacts, making it compatible with most door lock devices regardless of the voltage rating and style (AC or DC).

The M1KAM accepts many types of card swipe or proximity readers conforming to the 26 bit wiegand format. As an added benefit, the M1KAM also accepts Dallas „One-Wire“ iButton readers/devices. The M1KAM also has additional inputs and outputs, including: a request to exit (RTE) button or device and a Door Contact (Sensor) input. Outputs on the M1KAM consist of a voltage output for Door Held Open Alarm, a voltage output for System Ready to Arm, and a voltage output for System Armed. The M1KAM is mounted in a universal surface mount plastic housing with knockouts for surface mount raceways.


Input for a 26 bit Wiegand Reader, such as ELK-106055
Input for a Dallas „One-Wire“ iButton Reader, such as ELK-MA110
Heavy Duty Form „C“ Relay Contacts for Switching Door Strike Power
Low Current (50mA) Switched Negative (pull to ground) Output for “Door Held Open” Alarm
Low Current (10mA) Switched Negative (pull to ground) Output for “System Ready To Arm” indication
Low Current (10mA) Switched Negative (pull to ground) Output for “System Armed” indication
Supervised Input for RTE (Request To Exit) Button/Device
Supervised Input for Door Status Sensor
Installs in place of an M1 Keypad and operates from the RS-485 4-Wire Keypad Data Bus
Four selectable Time settings for „Request to Exit“ and „Door Held Open“
Hardware Watchdog Circuit
