PDF Content Summary: 51120-D MPC COBRA SERIES 575 Birch Street Forestville, CT 06010 technical support: 866-322-1237 fax: 866-322-1233 57010-H 12-19-2005 Manually Programmable Cylindrical Lock COBRA INSTALLATION AND PROGRAMMING GUIDE Introduction / Tools and Materials Needed COBRA Introduction Introduction INSTALLATION / Tools and AND Materials PROGRAMMING Needed GUIDE The MPC Cobra is a battery-powered manually programmed access control sys- tem. Up to 100 individual codes can be programmed right at the keypad. A red and green LED on the keypad provide visual indication for programming and access events. Mechanical key override is possible when a 7-pin small-format inter- changeable core (not included) is installed in place of the cylinder plug, which comes standard. Either the plug or the IC core must be installed for the lock to operate. When the cylinder is removed (using the cylinder control key) the lock will unlock. Manual key override should only be necessary if the low battery out- put indications have been ignored. (See also BATTERY INFORMATION: on page 10). The design allows for mounting on doors from 1-1/2” to 2” thick. A shim is avail- able to mount the lock to a 1-3/8” door. An exterior gasket (EG option) is available for application to exterior sides of doors. Tools and Materials Needed 1. Philips head screwdriver set 2. Allen wrench set 3. Loctite 242 4. 4 “AA” Batteries (provided) The following will also be needed only for new installations: 5. Full size door template (provided) 6. Pencil 7. Center Punch 8. Hammer 9. Chisel 10.

• Hold lock in horizontal position. • Remove tape (a) if present. b • Push in plug (b) until pin (c) until it falls out. • Remove plug. a c • Insert cylinder control key (a) into core (b) and turn clockwise to retract locking pin. • Push cylinder core into lock NOTE: Resistance will be noticeable. • Turn key counterclockwise to engage locking pin. • Remove key. Lock is now operational. NOTE: 6-PIN IC CORE CYLINDERS REQUIRE THAT THE ADAPTER IS INSTALLED TO MAKE THEM AS LONG AS A 7-PIN CYLINDER. THE ADAPTER IS INCLUDED IN THE SCREW PACK. DO NOT INSTALL THE ADAPTER IN A 7-PIN IC CORE CYLINDER.

Operation: Either the cylinder plug or the IC core must be installed for the lock to operate. Removal of the core or plug automatically unlocks the lock. It is recommended that an IC core be installed in case it ever becomes necessary to unlock the lock using mechanical means. 57010-H Page 9 12-19-2005 ab COBRA INSTALLATION AND PROGRAMMING GUIDE Programming Lock Codes Programming Lock Codes CODE FUNCTIONS: The MPC Cobra is manually programmable to have up to 100 codes. The codes can have different functions as described below. Several types of functions have factory default values which are operational as soon as the lock is installed. It is highly recommended that the Pro- gramming Code be changed (this will delete all factory default codes) and new codes be added. In addition, it is recommended that at least one Freeze/Lockout Code be added - in case the batteries get completely drained. (See “Battery Information” on below.) All codes can be 3- 8 digits in length (except the Programming code which must be 5-8 digits.) Keep a log of all issued codes. Issue codes exclusively with all odd or all even numbers - this practice will make it easier to spot duplicate codes, since each keypad button represents two numbers (for example, code 246 is identical to code 135.) FUNCTION FACTORY DEFAULT DESCRIPTION The programming code puts the lock into a programming mode. It will not unlock the lock. When a Programming code plus “*” is entered the LEDs alternately flash several times indicating the lock is in a programming mode. If more than 30 seconds pass in between programming entries, the lock returns to a normal operational state. Normal codes unlock the lock for the relock XXX time delay. While the lock is unlocked the green LED will flash. The LED will stop flashing and the lock will relock. Toggle codes unlock the lock indefinitely. xxx When the same (or another) toggle code is entered, the lock will immediately relock. When a toggle code is entered, the green LED will flash once. The LED will stop flashing and the lock will relock. Freeze/Lockout codes prevent other codes xxx from working. The lock can be locked or unlocked when one is entered. If it is locked, a Pass Thru code will unlock it but all other codes will not. Only another Lockout code will reverse the effect. One Use codes unlock the lock for the relock xxx time delay. They will only work once and then are deleted from memory. They can used again if they are programmed (added) into memory again. Supervised codes require that two different supervised codes entered in order to unlock the lock for the relock time delay. Pass Thru codes will unlock the door for xxx the relock time delay even if the door is in the lockout mode. BATTERY INFORMATION: CLEARING MEMORY: The MPC Cobra uses four, standard AA batteries. Clearing memory will delete all programmed codes and restore factory default The batteries should provide enough life for codes. If the memory ever needs to be erased follow the steps below: approximately 80,000 lock/unlock cycles. When the batteries are running out the lock provides two 1. Remove the inside escutcheon.

If the batteries are not changed, the lock will eventually not work and manual key override (if installed) will need to be used. 57010-H Page 10 12-19-2005 COBRA INSTALLATION AND PROGRAMMING GUIDE Programming Steps Programming Steps Use the steps on this page to pro- gram codes into the lock. The “*” key is used like the <ENTER> key is on a computer. After pressing the “*” key, wait for the red and green LEDs to stop flashing before proceeding to the next step. If at any time the red LED stays on while the green LED flashes an error has occurred. The flashing message will repeat three times. Count the number of flashes and consult the error code chart below.
