Hello Experts,

Anyone can help me on how to properly configure this Access Control Board? Most of the problem lies on the drop bolt on not properly functioning.

I would like  to have this access control board and the zoter drop bolt function properly.

I have read the manuals, diagrams and watched tutorials on web but it doesn't works as it intended.

And just to let you know, I am new to this technology so I hope the steps for solving are fairly simple.

Drop Bolt, I think the main problem lies in this one. I have not seen any good wiring with this drop bolt model.

Access Control:


A. I followed this manual guide with a bit of difference due to the drop bolt(+12V to NO) but doesnt work with the software and card reader.
B. I followed this wiring but it has a problem when the magnetic plate is on the lock sensor...It wont open at all regardless of card readers, exit button to software, however if I remove the magnetic plate it works, except for the automatic lock its like it based the locking on the timer instead of detecting the magnetic plate .
C. this is a rough sketch of the best wiring I have, Its the same as Wiring B however the Exit Button works now and its Locking is based on detecting the magnetic plate instead of timer like Wiring B.
I have made a video for more clear details. In this video I used the Wiring B.

I would really appreciate if anyone can assist me on this.
