Once this option is uploaded to the terminal it is used at starting the terminal at Power On. Data can then be entered and stored in the terminal memory. if the application specifying otherwise has not been loaded or if there is an error in the application. The back-up battery provided (in addition to the standard memory back-up) allows the terminal to be operated during a power failure. The standard memory back-up module is a lithium battery. The timeout will cause the terminal to shut down automatically after the last use of the terminal. There are two types of timeout shutdowns: • The firmware default timeout of 15 seconds.2 Memory As a standard feature. providing storage for data from more than 10. • The user defined timeout shutdown defined by programming the terminal using the SY protocol.

This option is used if the terminal has not been otherwise programmed (to a different timeout). A shutdown timeout feature enables the terminal to operate for more extended periods of time.000 simple operations. This timeout is used unless a different timeout has been programed to the terminal using the Synel Protocol and uploaded to the terminal. 16 . the user presses the battery key to activate the terminal.

Drill holes using a 6 mm. Re-place the connector cover at the bottom. Do not use the terminal communication cable. The power plug serves for disconnecting the terminal from the power source. Step 2: Warning: Remove the back installation panel by sliding it to the side and pulling it out. If the communication cable is to be wired through the wall. Step 3: Step 4: Step 5: Step 6: Step 7: Step 8: Step 9: 21 Synel Industries Ltd. Make sure that there is enough space enabling a safe communication cabling. The terminal should therefore be placed near an easily accessible power outlet. . Prepare the wall for mounting by placing the panel on the wall as a template and mark the place for drilling the holes. Overlooking this warning may result in harmful contact with an electrical current. Do not place the communication cable near a source of electromagnetic radiation or radio interference such as power lines. The recommended height is 140cm (4’7”). If the communication cable is to be wired through the wall. If an internal modem has been added and the modem is used. Make sure not to drill into any live electric wires.

Fingerprint sensor cleaning and care

A sensor is a rugged solid-state device designed to provide years of troublefree service. Although maintenance and handling requirements are few in number, observance of a few basic maintenance steps will help to ensure a high level of performance over its life span. Several types of sensors exist such as optical and silicon based like capacitance or of RF technology. Each type of sensor requires a different cleaningmethod. Make sure to use the proper cleaning method for the sensor type you use.

8.5.1

Cleaning for Fingerprint Sensors

Oily deposits from your finger accumulate on the surface of the fingerprint sensor after repeated use. These can inhibit the functionality of the sensor. Scheduled cleaning: It is recommended to clean the sensor at least once a week, and also whenever an oily residue is visible on its surface.

For Capacitive Sensors

Synel Industries Ltd.

SY-780A

Maintenance

Use Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and a clean cotton cloth or tissue paper to remove oily deposits. Caution: Do not use a soiled cloth or tissue paper. A clean cotton cloth or tissue paper will absorb the deposits, but a soiled cloth will smear the deposits over the sensor’s surface. Alcohol is the preferred cleaning material because it dissolves oily residue and evaporates quickly. The use of nylon brushes or scouring pads, abrasive cleaning fluids or powders, or steel wool is not recommended.

For Optic Sensors
Use a clean cotton cloth or tissue paper dampened by water or window cleaning solution to remove oily deposits.

8.5.2

Caring for the Fingerprint Sensor

Caution: Do not place the fingerprint sensor close to a heat source, such as a radiator or hot plate. Do not subject the fingerprint sensor to heavy shocks/vibrations. Do not allow the sensor to come in contact with metallic objects. The sensor can be stored in temperatures ranging from –650C to +1500C, and can operate in temperatures ranging from 00C to + 600C. Sensors should not be exposed to rain or excessive humidity. A sensor can operate within a range of 5% to 95% humidity (non-condensed). Other than for cleaning, as instructed above in “Cleaning for Fingerprint Sensors”, do not bring the sensor in contact with and liquids.

Authentec Sensors
Authentec sensors can be damaged by a discharge of static electricity from a human body. However, the fingerprint sensor is typically encircled by conductive plastic, which is connected, to a ground plane. You should always touch the conductive plastic before touching the sensor in order to safely discharge any static electricity that may be present on your skin or clothing.

SAL programming provides high flexibility: the terminal database structure can be modified and programming is performed according to tailor-made specifications. Table quantity limitation is 31 as each table is a file within the terminal. This elite assembler program know-how requires invested training hours as it is an intricate program to master. Introduction The SY-780A can be programmed by a SAL program to meet any requirements in the field of access control.1. time zones etc. These parameters are called by using a special SAL program defined by Synel and are incorporated in Syncomm. This document will not specify SAL programming method for detailed information. Syncomm programming is a user-friendly tool for building routine access control applications. 70 .SY-780A Appendix E . refer to SAL programming user manual. The global parameters service the entire program and the rest of the parameters are designated to build a corresponding application.Appendix E . The parameters are basically divided into three levels: • System tables: Firmware oriented parameters. Synel provides a set of parameters that are logically arranged.Programming via SYncomm Chapter E . However programming via Syncomm is much easier. but has some limitations. Synel Industries Ltd. stored and were built-in to the program to facilitate Syncomm programming. The SYComm program is written to accept parameters that are grouped into designated tables. • Programming tables: Enable planning the activities performed by the terminal as per user functioning requirements.Programming via SYncomm E. • Data tables: Contain the authorization for employees.
