Advanced Controller Settings
The screen below lets you configure the advanced settings of a door controller. The table below outlines the definition of all of the advanced options. Available options may vary based on door controller hardware and firmware versions.
8-Bit Variable Length PIN - If an 8-bit burst PIN pad is installed at the door, this setting defines how many PIN digits the controller will look for. Example: For a 7-digit PIN, check Enable and set Length to 7.
Events Download Limit - How many audit events from the controller to download at a time. "0" means continue downloading events until there are no more events left.
Timing - These options configure the timing for certain events at the door.
Latch Interval - This is the default latch interval for the controller. This is how long the controller will remain unlocked when a valid card is presented.
Multi Credential Timeout - Defines how long to wait for the second credential when the first of a multi authentication credential set is presented.
TTL Interval - How long to hold TTL when it is triggered. (Available in FW 7.03 or higher.)
The controllers have two output signals, TTL1 and TTL2. These are normally held high at 5 volts when they are not activated. When they are activated, they drop to zero volts. They are frequently tied into alarm systems.
- TTL2 on REX - The TTL2 on REX setting will cause the TTL2 signal to be activated if a REX signal is detected.
- TTL2 on Unauthorized Open - Active TTL2 signal if an Unauthorized Open Alarm is activated.
- TTL1 on Admit - Activate TTL1 if a card read results in an Admit.
The controller may be set to beep on any or all of the listed events.
Beep on Reject - The controller will beep as set when a card is presented and results in a Reject.
AUX Input maybe set to any of the following:
- Disable - AUX input signal is ignored.
- TTL1 - Activate the TTL1 signal when AUX input is detected.
- Authorized Access - The controller will unlock for the latch interval.
- Controlled Access - The controller will unlock for the latch interval if the AUX card number is assigned to a currently valid shift.
- Unlock - The controller will toggle between Normal (Locked) mode and Unlock mode when an AUX input is detected.
- LockDown - The controller will toggle between Normal (Locked) mode and LockDown mode when an AUX input is detected.
This option configures what happens when a Credential Admit event occurs at Reader 2.
Trigger Both Relay 1 and Relay 2 (DEFAULT)
Trigger Relay 1
Trigger Relay 2
Trigger Neither Relay
REX Options - Available for FW 7.03+ Only
Release Relay on REX - Uncheck to prevent Relay 1 from releasing on a REX event.
Suppress REX Event Reporting - Check to prevent the door controller from sending back REX events to the software.
