As part of your installation, you might need to include a Mercury LP1501 intelligent controller.

IMPORTANT: LP controllers include a Micro USB port. This connection is not to be used if UL/ULC listed access control system compliance is required and is to be maintained.
The following diagram demonstrates how to connect the controller.
LP1501 unit with connections
A Reader connections TB2: Reader 1
NOTE: The wire colors in the illustration refer to "pigtail" HID readers; the information in parentheses refers to "terminal block" HID readers.
B Reader connections (Wiegand only)a TB3: Reader 2
NOTE: The wire colors in the illustration refer to "pigtail" HID readers; the information in parentheses refers to "terminal block" HID readers.
C RS-485 bus RS-485 bus connection to other Mercury modules.
NOTE: When using the TB2 port for RS-485, the controller can only support one reader (TB3).
D Power In Connect + to VIN (observe polarity). Connect - to GND. Use 20 AWG wires minimum.
NOTE: Set jumper J3 to 12V.
E Ethernet cable Connect to the Synergis™ Cloud Link directly or through the network infrastructure.
F Address switches Used to set the device address. For more information on address settings on the Mercury controller, refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
G Relay outputs 2A inductive @30 V dc, 0.6 PF
H Resistors For OSDP integrations, prevent readers from misinterpreting noise on a non-driven RS-485 line as data by installing a 1k ohm pull-down resistor from D0 to GND on TB2.

For wiring distances over 10 meters, install a 120 ohm termination resistor between D0 and D1, as well as between A (-) and B (+) on the RS-485 bus of the last connected reader.

To find out whether you need to add 1k ohm pull-down resistor between D0 and GND, see KBA-78953.
