Hi, guys, and welcome for tuning into one of our videos. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk.
The product that we have here in front of us today is the K Series Compact Keypad from Paxton Access Control. Now, Paxton themselves have been around now for quite some time selling products and so forth into the UK in regards to keypads and proximity systems and so forth.
I like Paxton, I think Paxton, as far as I'm concerned, is very much user-orientated. It's certainly installer-orientated company. It's certainly focused on quality etc. So, without further ado let's look at this particular keypad and we'll go through the basics of it and so forth. So if you are thinking of fitting one of these or you're looking at wanting to look at a keypad for an application, hopefully we'll be able to tell you or give you some basic bullet points here today in regard to this particular keypad.
This particular keypad, they come in three different sizes. This is the largest of the three. This is the K-75. They've got a K-50 and they've got a K-38, and the sizes of those then are relevant to those particular numbers in regards to the keypad.
As you can see here, at the bottom here we've got a row of indicator lights, and those indicator lights tell you the functionality of the actual keypad as you go through the different functions and so forth. They have got different colour lights here.
You've also got a bell push at the bottom here, and I'll go through the wiring in a little bit more detail a little bit later. But basically you can actually wire up a 12 volt bell to this, so you can have a buzzer or something like that should somebody come to the door and they need to gain access but don't have the code and they can press that to ask for assistance for somebody to come to the door and open the door. Obviously you've got numbers and so forth and then you've got the star and the hash as the standard numerical keypad would be.
Now, this particular keypad, if I come to the back here, you will see that there's fixing points there. There is one at the top, as you can see. There's a fixing point there, there's a fixing point there. And you've got a little indicator, I don't know if you can zoom into that there. But that there is the little buzzer. So when you press the digits etc., and when it's going through all the different commands and functions, that's where you hear all the bleeps coming from.
Now you will see as well, is there's a . . . you'll need to drill a little bit of a hole here when you are actually going to fix this onto the wall because this actually needs to sit in slightly because all the wires and so forth sit off the back end of that look as you can see. I don't know if, can see that, there? Brilliant, okay.
Now, for your information, I'll just get some measurements there of these centres and so forth, just in case you're thinking whether or not where you need to fix. The centres I've got there for you guys is 60 millimetres. From there to there, the fixing centres from there to there, or there to there is 60mm. There's only one at the top and that's obviously in the centre. And the centre there is about, yeah, 35mm and so forth. That's the centre one up there.
Now once you've actually fixed these two, these three positions onto the actual wall, you then get in the box, you get some cover plates and I'll get those out now for you. You get some instructions on how to use the keypad. You get some clips and some fixings as well with the actual keypad. And then here's the bezel and these then will sit over they keypad like that, and they come in either the black finish or they've got a grey finish there look. So you can decide depending on the colour that suits you.
Once you've put the cover on, there's a little fixing screw there that you'd screw the cover on and there's the actual finished result there.
On the wiring now, it comes pre-wired with a length of cable, as you can see. If I can just pull these wires together now it will give you some kind of indication. So what we've got in respect to colours here. There's no relay in this keypad that changes state when you punch the number in. It either gives a output or it doesn't, and that can be programmed. So it gives a 12 volt output. So for red and black, that's the actual power to feed the 12 volt supply to actually feed the keypad.
Then we've got yellow and green and that's the 12 volt supply, 12 volt DC that is now, guys, that's 12 volt DC. And that's to feed a strike release or an electric lock, and when you push in the key you either let the power go, or you apply the power. That's in the programming configurations. So that's what those two do.
Then you've got then purple and blue. These are here. If you've got a magnet on your door, and you want to have a push to release button from the inside, then your push to release button will go on here. And you can program into the keypad then a delay of say a couple of seconds, three or four seconds. So you can push the button, then it would release the door and keep the door released then for say up to something like four or five seconds, it can be longer, but that's about the norm.
Then you've got then brown and orange here, okay, and that's the actual 12 volt supply that when you push the bell button on the front there, that will produce 12 volts across those two wires there, and that can ring a buzzer or any 12 volt DC buzzer that you may want to have.
Now, it has a lock out facility as well, so if somebody starts to try and tamper with it, to try and get as many codes into it and so forth it will lock it's self out. The load on the relay is about an amp. So if you are putting an electric lock or a magnet and so forth on this, make sure it doesn't draw more than an amp.
You can put up to 50 users on here. So you can have 50 people with 50 unique codes, so no problem at all there. And of course the codes can be anything between 4 and 8 digits as well.
So, Paxton have taken a lot of time and thought about this particular product and it's a really good seller with us. And I can see why, because it's so easy to install and it has a lot of functionality.
So there you go guys. If you are thinking of getting one or you need some more information, why don't you pop us over an email or gives a call. We've got live chat on our website now. We'd live to hear from you and we'd really love for you to consider buying it from us, we'd really appreciate that.
But from me, Darrel, and all the team here at LocksOnline, many thanks and I hope this video has given you a bit more information in regards to the functionality of this particular keypad from Paxton.
