The Schlage AD-Series Wireless System allows users to extend the reach of access control to areas where running wires is difficult, expensive or virtually impossible. Installations on interior doors, remote doors, historic buildings, 24/7 facilities, elevators and parking gates are now made possible by eliminating the need to run wires directly to the access point. Options are available to accommodate Wiegand, Clock & Data as well as RS-485 connections to the access control system.
 
The AD-Series Wireless System communicates via 900 MHz frequency to a Panel Interface Module (PIM) which is then hardwired back to the access control panel. Each PIM can support up to 16 wireless devices within a 200' range in most facilities and up to 1000' with clear line of site. The 900 MHz band enables longer transmission ranges; wavelengths travel a greater distance and better penetrate typical building construction – allowing for simplified system design. And since 900 MHz operates on a different frequency versus WiFi, it won’t burden existing IT infrastructure.
 
Secure and reliable wireless communication (heartbeat) from the PIM to the Access Control System occurs on a periodic basis and is field configurable; the factory default is set at 10 minutes. The AD-Series Wireless System utilizes patent-pending Wake-Up On Radio™ technology to deliver real-time activation at a remote wireless lock while maintaining up to a 2 year battery life. This feature, which is configurable from 10 seconds to as fast as 1 second, enables centralized emergency lockdown and unlock commands in applications where both speed and battery life are critical.
 
A variety of wireless devices are available to extend the reach of access control to applications which may be difficult to wire. Wireless Devices include:
• Wireless Portable Reader (WPR400)
• Wireless Reader Interface (WRI400)
• Wireless Gate Kit (GCK400)
• Wireless Elevator Control Kit (ECK400)
Additional components such as the Wireless Repeater (REPTR400), Wireless Antennas (ANT400), Dry Contact Relay Boards (RLBD) and Handheld Programming Devices (HHD-KIT) can be found on the Accessories tab.
 
The AD-Series has been integrated into over 20 leading Access Control Software Systems via RS-485 architecture.  Please visit our AD-Series Access Control Software Integrations & Partners pages where you can easily find everything you need to build a system including Wiring Diagrams, CAD Files, A & E Specifications, Solution Sheets and more.
Schlage Handheld Programming Device (HHD-Kit): The HHD-Kit serves as the link between your access control management software and Schlage electronic locks. This solution consolidates and simplifies programming and managing your access control system. The HHD-Kit contains all components needed for use with AD-Series & CO-Series locks & accessories.
 
PIB300-2D (Panel Interface Board): If the system requires Wiegand or Clock & Data protocol (rather than a direct RS485 connection), the PIB300-2D is used to seamlessly connect up to two AD-300/301 locks to an access control panel or reader interface board.Please visit the AD-Series Access Control Software Integrations & Partners page for more details.
 
Panel Interface Module (PIM400-TD2): If the system requires Wiegand or Clock & Data protocol (rather than a direct RS485 connection), the PIM400-TD2  is used to seamlessly connect up to two AD-Series wireless locks or devices to an access control panel or reader interface board.Please visit the AD-Series  Software Integrations page for more details.
 
Panel Interface Module (PIM400-485): Seamlessly integrates up to 16 wireless AD-Series wireless locks or devices to select OEM partners’ access control panels via RS485 protocols, which eliminate the need for additional reader interface modules.  Please consult your software provider for more information. Please visit the AD-Series Access Control Software Integrations & Partners page for more details.
 
Wireless Test Kit (TK400): The TK400 wireless test kit can help evaluate the system design on new AD-400 wireless networked systems prior to installation. The TK400 can also be used to diagnose communication strength on existing AD-400 wireless applications.
 
Wireless Remote Antennas (ANT400-REM): The ANT400-REM optional remote antennas are designed for use with the AD-400 Series devices. They increase installation flexibility of wireless products, extend the range of wireless communication in certain directions and expand the range of applications of AD-Series solution.
 
Relay Board (RLBD): The AD-Series Relay Board (RLBD) supports the open architecture of AD-Series by building a bridge between Schlage technology and third party access control systems that use mechanical, relay-based communication.  The RLBD is used to extend the existing access point status signals on PIM400-TD2 (for AD-400 applications) or PIB300-2D (for AD-300 applications) devices for each access point controlled by the Interface Module.
 
Wireless Repeater (REPTR400): The AD-Series Repeater Kit is ideal for overcoming obstructions and extending wireless communication range between an AD-Series PIM400 device and a linked wireless device such as an AD-400 electronic lock or WRI400. The REPTR400 is comprised of an AD-Series Panel Interface Module (PIM400-TD2) and a Wireless Reader Interface (WRI400).
 
Decorative Plates: Schlage offers decorative plates for retrofit applications where the AD-Series or CO-Series does not completely cover the existing footprint. Decorative plates are available in three finishes to suite with your existing hardware: 626 Satin Chrome, 605 Bright Brass and 643 Aged Bronze. Retrofit overlay templates are available under the “Downloads” tab as a guide.
