Power requirements IEI eMerge systems must be AC powered using the grounded plug-in transformer provided. Power should come from a circuit with an isolated ground and must be wired to the power supply mounted inside the eMerge cabinet. Transformer Input: 120 V AC 60 Hz 48W. Transformer Output: 16.5V AC 2400mA. The IEI eMerge includes a DC power supply. The eMerge power supply provides 12V DC at 3.3 amps. The recommended battery which is not included 12V DC, 7 AH, SLA (sealed lead acid). CAUTION!!! MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS OFF BEFORE CONNECTING OR DISCONNECTING MODULES IN THE IEI eMerge.
Network Controller board layout Top side of board Bottom side of board The network controller board must be located in the top position
Expansion Node Card The Expansion Node board must be located in the top position
I-button and tamper switch The tamper switch is installed on the tamper switch mounts and wired to the provided cord which is then plugged into the tamper switch connector on the control board The controller I-button comes pre installed The I-button contains system licensing.
Installing board in panel 1.Power down the eMerge. 2.Thread the standoff tube provided down onto the threaded post on the chassis next to the slot where you will insert the additional module. 3.Be sure that you are grounded and insert the additional module into the slot on the chassis with the ribbon cable connector toward the left of the eMerge cabinet. See diagram below. 4.Place the lock washer provided over the top of the standoff and thread the screw provided through the flange and down into the top of the standoff and snugly down onto the lock washer. See diagram below. 5.Connect the ribbon cable from the Controller/Node module in the topmost slot to the newly installed module. The connector is polarized. Make sure that the center bump fits into the opening for it on the connector on the module. Press the connector firmly into place until you hear the click of the extraction levers snapping into vertical position. You may have to press the extraction levers into full vertical position before you will hear the click.
Ribbon cable Slot numbers are determined by the connector on the ribbon cable that is plugged into the module. The ribbon cable (see diagram below) is a bus and a module’s place on the bus determines the slot number. You will see that it is possible to place a module in physical slot 5 and yet attach ribbon cable connector 6 to the module. If this occurs the module will be in slot 6 on the bus. Note: When connecting the modules to the ribbon cable be sure the connector is fully seated in the board (push on cable do not rely on the tabs on the boards)
Access Control module (ACM) The access control module can be used for 2 doors with both in reader or 1 door for in and out readers. The ACM board can be located in slot positions 2-7
Input Board layout The input board is used for monitoring alarm points, or when multi supervised inputs are needed. The Input board can be located in slot positions 2-7
Output Board layout The Output board is Used for elevator control or when additional form C relays are required. The Output board can be located in slot positions 2-7
Wiring battery and power to controller. The power supply is pre wired to the network controller. Note: Do Not connect Battery to power supply board connect to the controller board
Wiring Weigand readers CAUTION!!! Each eMerge Access module can supply a total of 400 milliamps of power for readers. If the reader(s) connected to the Access module draw more than 400 milliamps then external power must be supplied to these readers. The maximum distance for wiring weigand devices to the access board is 500 Ft. For distances longer then 500 ft. you need to use an additional expansion node with acm or there are 3 rd party devises made to extend the distance. Access Control module (ACM)

Wiring Outputs ACM Output board The dry contact relay is wired up as shown we show using a DC power supply for the lock. A diode is used for dc this is so the relay does not fail prematurely from a voltage spike from the lockset. When using AC voltage use a mov SNR- D56k2 or equivalent. Diodes and movs are supplyed with the access boards and output boards.
Connecting to the network When connecting to the controller board use a patch cord. A router or DHCP server needs to be connected so the node will get an IP address issued through DHCP.
