Interfacing Fermax proximity readers with IP Axes

30 Temmuz 2017 Pazar

There are certain parts of a building, a residential complex or a company where it is necessary to restrict access to the public for security reasons, only allowing access to those who are authorized. To offer the simplest and most effective form of control, Fermax has a complete access control range of products. It is about providing products to the most diverse range of projects, from the simplest to the most complex, with systems that are adapted to all budgets.

INTRODUCTION

There are certain parts of a building, a residential complex or a company where it is necessary to restrict access to the public for security reasons, only allowing access to those who are authorized. To offer the simplest and most effective form of control, Fermax has a complete access control range of products. It is about providing products to the most diverse range of projects, from the simplest to the most complex, with systems that are adapted to all budgets.

STAND ALONE ACCESS

The most simple and practical way to manage a single door is he standalone access. A device that can be installed both in the interior and exterior and controls the access in a private way. These types of accesses can be integrated in door entry panels to enable the neighbors to access it without keys.

DISTRIBUTED ACCESS

The AXESKEY access control is the perfect combination of intelligence and control enabling you to manage, from the same point, multiple doors that are not interconnected, though the UserPlus Programming Kit (ref. 5258). This form of distributed intelligence allows each door to work independent of the rest, even in case of sabotage to any of them. Of course, each driver recognizes their users and allows access if it has the relevant authorization. This system is recommended in medium size projects in which multiple drivers are needed in different locations (up to 32 accesses and 1,000 users). The management is done from a practical and intuitive software: UserPlus programming kit. The program has the advantage of allowing you to make changes to the permissions (adding and deleting) without remote connectivity or reconfigurating the installation.

CENTRALIZED ACCESS

A centralized access control system is characterized by the fact that managing both system and users is carried out from a central device which connects directly (RS-485) or remotely (IP) to the PC through a software program (in the Windows range), for the programming of the installation. These systems feature advanced functions such as anti-passback, timekeeping control, capacity limitations, activation of devices from readers, incident log in real time or offline, automation, etc. Fermax offers two options for the advanced management of multiple access points: AC Plus: The most competitive and easiest integration solution. IP Axes: The most intuitive and competitive system for remote management via personnel presence. It is necessary if you require a site map, functionalities such as computation of user hours, personnel presence and remote access control.

IP_AXES

The Access Control system IP_AXES allows to solve both centralized and distributed installations thanks to the Central IP_AXES 1/2 controller that allows the connection of up to 42 readers with protocols S-BUS, WIEGAND, Clock & Data, with a same IP address integrated into the computer.

  • 15,000 users and 15,000 events.
  • 128 time zones.
  • 64 IP_AXES 1/2 controllers in the same installation.
  • Extensions by RS-485 of up to 10 expansion modules which can be:
    • IP_AXES 4 Expansion module up to 4 doors.
    • IP_AXES I / O Expansion module of 8 sensor inputs and 8 relay outputs.

The software that manages the installation via TCP / IP is totally intuitive.

  • Setup Wizard and Users.
  • Databases: Access and SQL Server.
  • Local Antipassback (OFFLINE and ONLINE) / global (ONLINE).
  • Sending notices by email.
  • Management of companions.
  • Automation.
  • Management of lift/elevators.
  • Allows you to view by real-time site map / remote control the status of: doors, readers, analog inputs, outputs, counters.
  • Automatic detection of IP address.
  • Voice messages.
  • Self-learning of cards and identifiers.
  • Manual and graphic entry of slots and holidays. 10 slots per day. Lists of festive periods.
  • Multiple identifiers per user.
  • Creation of shortcuts and automatisms.
  • For more than 2 readers, additional licenses are required depending on the number of readers in the installation.
  • Management of present users.
  • Presence time. Total hours per user

INTEGRATION OF CITY PROXIMITY READER WITH IP AXES

This article explains the integration of the city (or skyline) proximity reader with the new IP AXES centralized access control system.

REQUIRED MATERIAL

For this purpose, the following material is required:

  1. 2545 cable.
  2. F07440 or F06992 proximity reader.
  3. F05280 Centarl IP Axes.
  4. F04813 12V power supply unit.

IP AXES CENTRAL UNIT

The central unit is the brain of the centralized IP Axes control system. All the intelligence is process in this module.

To connect the proximity City reader, the Wiegand -26 interface will be used.

Since only one reader is going to be used only Reader one interface will be employed in this diagram the system could be scaled to two readers following the above connection diagram.

The connection of the Wiegand bus to the central unit will be as follows:

 

HOW TO CONNECT THE PROXIMITY READER TO THE BUS

The proximity reader needs to be programmed to operate in Wiegand-26 so SW2 needs to be properly configured SW2.1 to ON and SW2.2 to OFF.

The negative of the bus cannot be connected directly to the IP Axes central unit as it has an internal protection and the reference of negative is not the same. For this reason the negative of the reader needs to be taken from terminal 2 of connector CN2 as seen in the picture.

The cable 2545 can be used for this purpose, the red cable (terminal 2) will be connected to the negative of the Wiegand bus. The rest of the cables, brown, orange and yellow can be cut.

Finally, the red cable of connector CN2 can be connected to the negative of the Wiegand bus (in this case orange cable) as shown in the following picture.

The following table is a summary of the connections between the city proximity reader and the central IP Axes:

BEHAVIOUR OF THE PROXIMITY READER

The behavior of the proximity reader is slightly different when it is connected to the central IP

Axes than when it is connected to the Door Controller 4420.

  1. When the proximity reader is first connected the red + LED will be ON after a “beep” it will be OFF again.
  2. When a valid proximity card is presented to the reader the green LED “Door opened” will be activated during the “opened door time”. No “beep” will be played.
  3. When a non-valid proximity card is presented to the reader the green LED “Door opened” will blink for three times. Again, no “beep” will be played.
  4. During the standby no LED is ON.

CONCLUSION

In this article we have introduced the different types of access control systems along with a trick or small modification in order to use.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with FERMAX’s After Sales Department if you have any doubt or if you require any further assistance about this device.
