1.Application Introduction 

Touchless Lift Control Solution is a feature for users to reach a designated single floor by swiping the user card only without pressing the elevator button rather than reading a user card and then pressing the floor button.  It’s a special application that suited in the environments that require high hygiene security level such as hospital, Maternal and Child Center, Confinement center, etc.
Usually each individual user may have access to a single floor besides the public floors in the community buildings.  It’s not only for reaching a single floor but also enabling access to the public floors such as Lobby, Lounge, Roof, etc.  



2-1    AR-401-IO-0016R Lift Controller Panel

a.    For auto pressing single floor’s lift button: it requires 2 pcs of AR-401-IO-0016R
b.    For having access to the public floors control: please put all public floors control in one specific AR-401-IO-0016R that do not auto trigger.
For the requirement of exceeding 16 floors, it needs to double the quantity of lift controller panel.

*Two frame LED colors for option (Green&Red OR Blue&Red).


3. Software & Firmware Installation & Nord ID No. Set-up 

3-1    For auto pressing single floor’s lift button: it requires 2 pcs of AR-401-IO-0016R

a.    No. 1 AR-401-IO-0016R with SOYAL standard firmware
b.    No. 2 AR-401-IO-0016R with special firmware version: 401RO16_V0207_200407 Only1of16 ForNoMode.ISP (please contact SOYAL sales team to get this special firmware version).  Please update firmware by ISP Tools.
c. Set up the same Nord ID no. 1 for both controllers AR-401-IO-0016R.

3-2    For having access to the public floors control: please put all public floors control in one specific   AR-401-IO-0016R and must set up the different Nord ID no. for example Nord ID no. 5.


4.Wiring & Lift Number 

a.    No. 1 AR-401-IO-0016R: serial link and all COM-points linked respectively.  Keep the floor number as it is.a.
(Linked with the floor buttons, following a typical floor control structure, when the card is enabled for floors 1/2/5, the corresponding three floor buttons will be activated when swiped.)
b.    No. 2 AR-401-IO-0016R: parallel link and all COM-points linked respectively. Keep the floor number as it is.b. 
(Using special firmware and connected in parallel with the floor buttons, a command for a single floor will automatically activate the corresponding floor button of the elevator. If the card has access to multiple floors, the elevator button will not be activated. In other words, only the unique floor within these 16 floors will be activated.)
c.    No. 3 AR-401-IO-0016R: serial link and all COM-points linked respectively.

Because all the public floors are centralized and controlled by the AR-401-IO-0016R with station number set as 5, the control range is from 48 to 64. Therefore, it is necessary to modify the floor number settings of the public floors to be after 48 and avoid using the original floor numbers.

Example: Public floor 1 is the lobby, 4 is the lounge, and 16 is the rooftop. Please modify them as follows:

1st floor: 1 → 62
Lounge floor: 4 →63
Roof floor: 16 →64

5.User Operation 

By this solution, to reach single floor, users do not have to press the elevator buttons; to reach public floors, users would still have to press the public floor’s elevator buttons.  For example: the designated single floor is 13th floor and the public floors are 1st floor, lounge 4th floor and roof 16th floor.  When this user swipe the RFID card, 13th floor’s elevator button will be pressed automatically, when if this user needs to go to public floor such as 4th floor, the user needs to press 4 to go to 4th floor; when if the user wants to go to 16th floor, the elevator will still be open at 13th floor first unless the user press it to cancel 13th floor or just let it open and back to close status.
