Specifications
Power
AC Non-Polarized: 16.5 VAC utilizing a UL-listed 50 VA Class 2 transformer (TB9-4 AC+/TB9-5 AC) or DC Polarized: 24 VDC, 1.25 Amp (TB9-4 DC+/TB9-5 DC) Power Wire Two-wire, 18 AWG, shielded cable.

Backup Battery
Casil 12 VDC (NCI Part #: BAT-3) 4Ah, sealed acid/lead backup battery (J6 DC+/J7 DC) Backup battery will provide 2.5 hours of standby backup power. Charging voltage: 13.7 +/ 0.1 VDC
NOTE: The NS2 panel has deep discharge protection built in for the protection of the battery and will only utilize a backup battery down to 10.2 VDC before the NS2 shuts down. Backup battery should be replaced 2 to 2.5 years: more often if panel has a high rate of backup use.

Description
The NS2 is a two reader panel providing access control for up to two doors through the use of Wiegand readers. The NS2 may be used as a standalone panel with independent card and transaction storage or, with a software upgrade, as a fully monitored online access control device. Communication to the front-end computer is achieved through an RS-232 serial cable (included with installation kit) or an optional RS-485 interface. Each RS-485 interface is capable of communicating with up to 31 panels. The NS2 is designed for tile mount using the ENC10 enclosure. The I/O terminals are organized by operational utility with connectors for power and RS-485 communications located on the lower right followed from right to left by the relays, auxiliary power, door control inputs, and readers. The Tamper and External Power Fail terminal are located at the left edge above the main line of connectors.

Secondary Backup Battery


The NS2 panel memory is backed up using a super capacitor for one week in the absence of power or a backup battery. The super capacitor will backup panel memory and real-time clock and does not require maintenance or replacement.

Reader & Aux Power


Reader and AUX power is supplied at 10.8-12.7 VDC with a maximum current of 600 mA. Five volt (5 VDC) readers require five-volt regulators (Northern part no. 5VRDREG) Maximum draw is less then 600 mA: (Reader 1+ Reader 2 + Aux Power) < 600 mA.
NOTE: Aux power must not be used to power locks.

Supervised Input Wiring

The NS2 supervises inputs 1 through 8 and may be configured for supervised or non-supervised normally open or normally closed contacts. Use standard 1K ohm 5% resistors for supervision. All eight inputs are assigned default features but can be changed for other configurations as needed.

Inputs
The NS2 has 8 input points located on the following terminals:
Input Terminal TB5-1 TB5-3 TB5-2 TB5-4 TB5-6 TB5-5 TB3-6 TB3-5 TB4-6 TB4-4 TB1-3 TB1-1 TB1-2 Door 1 Rex Door 1 Status Door 1 & 2 Common Door 2 Rex Door 2 Status Input 3 & 4 Common Reader Tamper or Aux Input 5 Common (Input 5 Common) Reader Tamper or Aux Input 6 Common (Input 6 Common) Power Fail or Aux Input 7 Enclosure Tamper or Aux Input 8 Common (Input 7 & 8 Common) Description Input/Aux Number 1 2 1&2 3 4 3&4 5 5 6 6 7 8 7&8

NS2 version 1.01.01 - 1.03.09 supports only the defaulted Wiegand formats: F=PN 1 26 S 1 D 1 B1 B2 B3 B4 F=PN 2 32 S 0 D 0 B1 B2 B3 B4 F=PN 3 34 S 1 D 1 B1 B2 B3 B4
NOTE: NS2 version 1.01.01 - 1.02.04 at this time does not support the ABA card format, the OL, OJ, and OH Options, Anti- Passback and Lock Down Time. NOTE: NS2 version 1.03.09 does not support the ABA card format or the Lock Down Time option, but does support the NS2MEM module, the OL, OJ, and OH Options, as well as Anti-Passback (In card only mode).

NOTE: Tamper and External Power Fail are supervised and capable of being used as additional inputs if the default functionality is not needed. NOTE: The wire used for the inputs should be shielded and cannot exceed 30 ohms over the entire length of the cable. Remember that the distance from the panel to the door must be doubled to determine the total resistance.

Outputs
Four form-C relays SPDT (Single Poll Double Throw) goldcontact relays are provided for controlling door locks or other output devices (I.E. sounder, burg panel, phone dialer....etc.).

Relay 1 is defaulted to control the Door 1 lock & Relay 2 is defaulted for the Door 2 lock. Relay 3 & 4 are used as auxiliary relays for signaling other devices. All 4 relays are rated at 12 Amps / 28VDC for resistive loads and 6 Amps / 28VDC for inductive loads (data switching).
NOTE: Once the relay pole has been used for an inductive load (including door strikes and magnetic locks) it should not be used for low current dry circuit applications. NOTE: Switching of inductive loads can cause EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) which may interfere with the normal operation of other equipment.

The energized or ON time for each relay can be configured by using either time zone control, or programmable pulse time via the host software.

To minimize premature contact failure and increase system reliability, contact circuit protection such as the S-4 suppressor is required. Locate this device as close as possible to the Door Strike / Maglock.

Question:

Can the NS2 panel run in a LAN/WAN environment? Yes, each NS2 panel can be fitted with NSLAN1 interface board to allow a single direct TCP/IP connection (64 max), or up to 31 panels can be connected using the 485-PCI-2L and a LANSRL100 or NLANSRLU1 (64 max). Does the NS2 panel support Anti-Passback? Yes. What is the Xport expansion port used for? The XPort expansion port allows for future expansion to other devices as well as the NS2MEM. What is the NS2MEM used for? The NS2MEM module is a "Plug and Play" memory board that attaches to the "Xport" and allows memory expansion of up to 10,000 cards and 100,000 buffers. The NS2MEM module is ONLY SUPPORTED WITH NS2 FIRMWARE VERSION 1.03.09 OR HIGHER.

Question: Question: Question:

Question:

How do I upgrade the NS2 Firmware? The NS2 panel uses FLASH memory. This means never having to replace a firmware chip to take advantage of system upgrades or new features. See Honeywell Access Systems website (www.honeywellaccess.com) for further details and downloads. How do I default the NS2 panel? 1. Change all of the NS2 Panel DIP switches to OFF (address Zero)
2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Question:

Power down NS2 panel by removing backup battery then removing AC power for 10 seconds. Restore power to the NS2 Panel by reconnecting AC power then backup battery to reset the panel. Power down again by removing backup battery then removing AC power. Reset the DIP switches with correct panel address, and power back up the panel. Re-initialize panel through the Nstar software to download current data.

Default LED conditions for the NS2 panel after default are: run LED blinking green and power LED solid green.
NOTE: NOTE: Using firmware version 1.01.1 & 1.02.01: By default the run LED is blinking and power LED is solid. When there is information in the NS2 panel(s), after a full initialization of the NS2 panel, C1 & C2 will flash red. Only One NS2 panel at a time should be defaulted.

Question:

How do I control the reader LEDs on the NS2 Panel? In the NStar software, output 5 controls the LED on reader 1, while output 6 controls the LED on reader 2. By default Outputs 5 and 6 are set for a two-second pulse time. It is recommended that any time zone assigned to the door lock output also be assigned to the corresponding reader LED output so the LED will follow the correct time schedule. The configurations described in this document have not been reviewed by Underwriters Laboratories.
