WIN-PAK User Guide
21
Welcome
Welcome
WIN-PAK is state-of-the-art access control
software that was specifically designed to run on
Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2000 & Windows
XP operating systems.
WIN-PAK allows the programming of card and
card holder information, the design and creation of
badges, and easy monitoring of alarms, cameras and
DVRs.
WIN-PAK software functions are separated into
three applications: Database Server,
Communications Server and User Interface. These
applications can run on the same computer or on
multiple computers, allowing great flexibility in
configuring a networked system.
WIN-PAK is a three-tier client/server application
based on Microsoft tools and standards. It is ODBC
(Open Database Connectivity) compliant and uses
Microsoft SQL Server 8.0/MSDE 2000 as its
database engine. This provides a reliable, flexible and
robust system.
WIN-PAK is designed to meet the needs and
viewpoint of the installer as well as the end user.
The Device Map displays the access control system
from the viewpoint of equipment and connections.
The Access Map and Control Map, along with the
Floor Plan view, allow the user to define and use the
system from the viewpoint of the facility.

WIN-PAK User Guide
Chapter 5: Badging
The Badging chapter contains the information
necessary to create custom badge designs, and
include areas for card holder photos and signatures
on those badges, as well as magnetic stripe encoding,
barcodes, and a variety of artwork.
Chapter 6: Card Holders
Within the WIN-PAK System, a card is typically a

template. Chapter 6 shows you how to set up card
holder templates, and include customized note fields
on the templates, as well as associating a card holder
with a card and a badge.
Chapter 7: Translation
WIN-PAK allows the translation of the User
Interface. This chapter explains how to use a

Introduction
Access Control with WIN-PAK
Access control is computerized control over entry
into any area that can be secured with a lock and
key. Entry is only allowed to authorized people at
authorized times. Control of who is allowed to come
and go is easily maintained.
The weakness of a lock and key security system is
the physical key. The key is readily duplicated and
gives access to anyone who holds it. There is no
control of when a key is used and no record of its
use. The risk of lost or stolen keys, with the expense
of changing locks, is a costly problem.
Access control is an effective and affordable solution
to this problem. With access control, each person
receives a card or keycode which restricts access to
authorized areas at authorized times. A small,
programmable control panel allows or denies access.
If a card is lost or stolen, the control panel can be
reprogrammed quickly and easily.
Many additional functions are available when access
control is combined with today's powerful computer
networks. The system integrates with DVR devices
and can also control and monitor CCTV equipment.
It can track and provide reports of all card and
keycode activity, a history of system events and
database reports.
In addition, the access control system can store and
manage basic information on thousands of
employees at multiple sites. Employee photo ID
imaging and badging are now an important feature of
access control systems.

WIN-PAK User Guide
WIN-PAK Features
WIN-PAK is state-of-the-art access control software that
was specifically designed to run under the Windows
2000/Windows XP operating systems. This makes it
possible for WIN-PAK to take full advantage of the
speed, flexibility, and reliability of networked computers.
WIN-PAK has features designed to handle large and
complex installations. The WIN-PAK environment can
be set up so that it is easy to use by the people who are
monitoring alarms, issuing cards, and carrying out other
day to day functions.
WIN-PAK supports Tracking and Muster Reporting to
indicate the location of people for security or safety
reasons.
WIN-PAK allows Guard Tours defined by reader and
alarm points, that can be timed or random tours and
schedule to start automatically.
WIN-PAK provides CCTV control with live monitor
view, supporting interfaces with Burle, Dedicated
Micros, Fusion, Geutebruck, Javelin, MaxCom,
MaxPro, NCI CCTV, Panasonic, Pelco, Vicon and
VideoBlox.
Database Management
WIN-PAK uses Microsoft SQL Server 8.0/MSDE
2000 as its database engine for robust transaction
processing even in heavy traffic situations.
WIN-PAK supports alarm partitioning by operator,
making it possible to control which alarms a
particular operator monitors. Highly detailed
operator definitions (down to the level of individual
points, readers, and note fields), allow the protection
of confidential information, while making needed
information available.
Introduction
31
WIN-PAK database information is easily edited,
searched, and sorted. A wide variety of reports can
be exported, viewed on screen or printed. Saved
report templates can be printed or emailed on a
schedule.
Access Control Management
WIN-PAK uses Floor Plan views to monitor and
control many of the daily functions of access
control. The floor plan provides a graphic
representation of devices including doors, panels,
inputs, outputs and CCTV equipment.
Representations of system devices (abstract devices
or ADVs) signal the state of system hardware and
give the user control over these devices. For
example, a door can be locked or unlocked from an
ADV on the floor plan, a CCTV camera view can be
switched from one monitor to another, and
information can be sent to a control panel.
Control Map are defined by adding devices to a
Control Area, which provides another way to control
the devices.
Separate Event and Alarm views display alarms and
other system information in list form. Alarms can be
acknowledged and cleared from either the Control
Map, Floor Plan or Alarm view.
Badging
WIN-PAK gives you the tools to create high-quality
photo IDs. Badge designs can be created incorporating
photos, signatures, barcodes, magnetic-stripe encoding
and logos or other art work. These can be printed on
access control cards, incorporating two security
measures into one.
32
WIN-PAK User Guide
WIN-PAK includes a full-featured badge layout utility
for the design, creation and printing of badges. This
includes two-sided printing and bulk printing of
badges. Magnetic stripe encoding [up to three
tracks], barcoding, multiple images, and signatures
can be placed on a badge.Video images can be
captured in real time or imported from another
source. High resolution digital images, photo
cropping and ghosting of images are all supported.
Cards and Card Holders
WIN-PAK allows the programming of card and card
holder information. Forty user-defined note fields are
available for entering information into the Card
holder database. The note fields are arranged on
user-defined tabs, so that the information can be
organized to suit the user's particular needs. Multiple
photos, signatures, and cards can be used for Human
Resources, asset tracking, or other purposes.
Multiple cards can be assigned to a single card
holder. For example, a long range radio frequency tag
may be issued for drive-in entry through a security
gate, and a proximity card might be used for entry
into and within the building. A spouse or child may
need his or her own card for access to a building as
well.
Card Holders can be moved between accounts by
changing the Account selection.
Flexible Views and Control Features
Floor plan views are user configured. They provide
both monitoring and control capability for panels,
doors, alarms, inputs and outputs, and other system
devices. Multiple floor plans can be viewed
simultaneously, while links can open other floor
plans at the click of a mouse. The pan, tilt, zoom
and switching of CCTV and DVR cameras can also
be controlled from the floor plan view.
33
Introduction
The Control Map provides another user-config ured
means of controlling devices. The user defines the
Control Map by adding devices to a branching tree
structure in Control Area. Devices can be controlled
from the Control Map view.
Other on-screen views include live CCTV
monitoring, Digital Video and Auto Card Lookup,
which automatically displays a picture and
information about a card holder when their card is
presented at a designated reader.
Communications
WIN-PAK offers a wide variety of communications
options to allow the greatest flexibility in setting up
an access control system. It supports up to 255 serial
communications ports. Remote locations can be
supported by dial-in and dial-out configurations.
Software Concepts
User Interface
Operators log in to the User Interface and then
connect with the database server which is already
running. All of the interaction between the end users
and the access control system takes place through
the User Interface.
The User Interface can be installed on the same PC
as the Database Server and the Communication
Server or it can reside on another machine on the
network. With the purchase of appropriate licenses,
numerous copies of the User Interface can be
running and logged into the Database Server at the
same time.
34
WIN-PAK User Guide
Abstract Devices
An abstract device (ADV) is a logical representation
of a physical device (e.g., a communication server,
control panel, door or CCTV switcher). Similar in
appearance to an icon, an ADV is associated with an
actual device in your access control system.
ADVs provide an interface for monitoring the status
and controlling the actions of a physical device from
the Control Map, Floor Plan or Alarm View.
Enhanced ADVs are placed on a Floor Plan
Background.
WIN-PAK is designed to combine many hardware
devices, with different functions and features, into a
seamless access control system. The abstract device
plays an important role in this design. The ADV
provides a user interface for controlling different
hardware, without concerning the end user with the
details of the hardware configuration.
For example, when placed on a floor plan, the ADV
door object allows the user to lock, unlock, shunt,
un-shunt, return to time zone, pulse or send a
programmable pulse to the door relay. From the
user's point of view, it does not matter if the door
device is from an PW-2000 panel or another
controller.
In operation on the floor plan, the ADV signals the
state or status of its device by blinking and changing
color. A sound file can also be associated with the
ADV to signal a change in state. Each ADV has a
control menu that allows the user to execute
functions available for that device. Right-clicking the
ADV opens the control menu. Drag and drop
functionality is available in some cases. For example,
a camera object can be dragged and dropped onto a
monitor object to initiate a switch.
The ADVs color, blinking and other properties can
be edited. They can also be re-sized and rotated in
the Floor Plan Definition utility.
Introduction
35
Floor Plan View
Floor Plans provide a user interface for controlling
and monitoring the system. The Floor Plan views can
be tailored to the specific needs of your access control
system. Multiple Floor Plans can be opened and viewed
simultaneously. Floor plans can contain links to other
floor plans for a different or more detailed view. In
addition, the Floor Plan view can contain links to
Alarm and Event views, as well as a special field for
text information.
Floor plans are made up of a reusable, static
background and ADVs associated with hardware
devices. The background can be the floor plan of the
building or area where the hardware is located. It can
also be a loop wiring diagram, a simple grid, or a
picture of the area where the hardware is located.
Background files must be supplied as Windows
metafiles (.wmf).
The ADVs can be associated with any hardware
device, including communication interfaces, panels,
alarm points, entrances, and CCTV equipment. The
ADVs signal events by changing color and blinking.
Right-clicking an ADV opens a control menu for the
device.
Data Trees
WIN-PAK uses a graphical tree to organize and
display some of its database information. The tree
allows information to be organized into logical or
geographical groups. Each tree is created as you
program your access control system, therefore it is
tailored to meet the needs of your access control
system.
36
WIN-PAK User Guide
Except for the device tree, the tree defines the
hierarchy of resources, not the resources themselves.
For example, an Access Level is defined as a list of
readers. But rather than being displayed in a standard
list, the readers are mapped on a data tree. The
highest level branch can be defined as an entire
office complex. Branching off from the office
complex is the President's suite, the Accounting
Department, the Production Area, and the
Distribution Center. The appropriate entrances are
then added to each branch. The entrances that are
included in a given access level are shown in green.
A quick look at the tree gives a clear picture as to
which entrances are included in this access level.
The Device Map is displayed on a tree, but unlike
the other tree structures, devices are defined as they
are added to the Device Map.
Multiple Server Design
WIN-PAK is a true 32-bit application that is
designed to operate in a Windows 2000/Windows
XP environments. The server modules load as
services in Windows 2000/Windows XP.
WIN-PAK is a three-tier client/server application
based on Microsoft tools and standards. This design
provides a robust, reliable, and flexible program.
Because it is ODBC (Open Database Connectivity)
compliant, existing databases can be converted for
use with WIN-PAK.
WIN-PAK is comprised of three primary modules:
y
Database Server,
y
Communications Server
y
Client Workstation.
Introduction
37
These modules can be installed on one computer or
on different machines on a network.
Communications are handled by one or more
communication servers; the databases can be
handled by the database server on a separate
computer; and the user interface can be installed on
one or more computers that serve as workstations.
This provides a distribution of system activities and
processes among the defined computers, thereby
improving system performance significantly.
Database Server
The Database Server stores, organizes and retrieves
the information in the WIN-PAK database tables. It
makes this information available to other system
components and allows the retrieval of information
for editing and report generation. The Database
Server can be used at the same time by a
communication server and multiple client
workstations.
The Database Server can be installed on the same
PC as the User Interface or it can reside on another
machine on the network.
Communication Servers
The Communication Server controls communication
to and from the control panels and the Database
Server. It assigns priorities and resolves conflicts as
information is routed from the various panel loops
and devices to the Database Server, and the WINPAK User Interface.
The Communication Server can be installed on the
same PC as the client workstation or it can reside on
another machine on the network.
38
WIN-PAK User Guide
Command File, Guard Tour, Muster and Schedule
Servers
In addition to the three main program modules,
WIN-PAK has four other servers: the Command
File Server, Guard Tour Server, Muster Server and
the Schedule Server. These servers are normally
installed on the same machine as the Database
Server.
In Windows 2000/XP they run as services and are
transparent to the end user. They are launched on
start-up and their task bar buttons are not visible.
The operation of these servers is more or less
transparent to the operator.
The Command File, Guard Tour, Muster and
Schedule functions are accessed through the WINPAK user interface in the same manner as other
databases.

Video Capture Card
A video capture card is required when interfacing to
a CCTV system where the video output from the
video switcher is fed into the WIN-PAK computer
for on screen viewing and control. Video badging
may also use a video capture card. Only one video
capture card per computer is supported. If both
CCTV and badging are required on the same
computer, the badging camera signal will have to go
the CCTV switcher and then routed back to the
WIN-PAK computer. The recommend video capture
card is the PBVP15.
Modems and Communication Ports
Modems and communication ports are those that are
supported by the Windows operating systems,
including both internal and dial-up modems.
Supported communication ports and devices,
including modems (internal or external), are any
devices supported by the Windows 2000/XP
operating system.
Badging Printers
Any badge printer that is supported by the Windows
operating system can be used for most badge
printing. However, for two-sided PVC encoding or
magnetic stripe encoding, the PBVP35 series (Ultra
Rio or Tango) printer is required.
44
WIN-PAK User Guide
Report Printers
For page printing, any printer that is installed in the
Windows operating system can be used. For single
line printing, a dot-matrix printer, such as the PBPRINTER is required.
Panel Firmware
The PW-2000 or N-1000 family of control panels
must have at least version 8.02 firmware. The NS2+
and P-Series panels do not require firmware
upgrades.
Installation Overview
Given the complex nature of networked computer
environments, a turnkey system from Honeywell
Access Systems provides the simplest installation
process. These systems are delivered with software
and hardware components installed on computer
systems that meet the necessary requirements for
running WIN-PAK.
However, when WIN-PAK software is purchased for
installation by the customer, the hardware and
software components must be properly installed and
configured.
Architecture
WIN-PAK is a multi-part, client-server application,
comprised of three primary modules: the Database
Server, Communications Server, and User Interface.
These modules can be installed on different PCs, be
networked and connected via RPC and LPC. This
architecture allows extremely flexible WIN-PAK
program components run as full services in Windows
2000/XP. No window is present in their normal
operation. Debugging versions of the services,
which provide a console output window, are also
shipped with WIN-PAK.
45
Installation
However, their use is reserved for error isolation, and
should not be used in everyday applications.
WIN-PAK provides a utility [the System Manager] to
access the connection information. The System Manager
directs the User Interface and other remote servers to
the Database Server.
System Setup
Standalone Systems
BEFORE installing WIN-PAK for the first time
ensure that the following conditions are met:
•
Install Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or
greater / Windows XP Professional has Service
Pack 2 installed.
•
If Microsoft SQL Server 2000 is to be used as
the database engine, it should be installed on the
same PC on which the Database Server will be
installed.
•
Install a video capture card or digital camera on
the PC that will serve as the badging workstation.
•
Install printer and printer drivers.
•
Disable all energy management from both the
BIOS and Operating System, as this can adversely affect the installation and operation of
WIN-PAK.
•
Internet Explorer 5.5 is required for WIN-PAK
to work properly. If an older version than IE
5.50.4522.1800IC already installed, WIN-PAK
will install IE 5.5. This ensures that the HTML
Help system will be displayed properly.
NOTE: Some software applications may not function
properly on different versions of IE.
46
WIN-PAK User Guide
•
Before beginning installation, make a note of the
CD Key inside the cover of the WIN-PAK
Quick Reference Guide. You will need this
number during installation and while registering
the software.
• Read the release notes on the WIN-PAK CD.
Additional installation information plus last
minute updates may be contained therein.
•
TCP/IP protocol must be installed for the
MSDE to work properly. A network card doesn't
have to be installed. Use Microsoft Loopback
adaptor or Dialup adapter, depending on the OS
used.
Networked Systems
BEFORE installing WIN-PAK for the first time
ensure that conditions listed under Standalone
Systems and the following listed conditions are met.
•
Install network cards on PCs that are used in a
networked system. (Any standard Windowscompatible network card can be used.)
•
Ensure that machine names use only alphanumeric characters without spaces, and that the
first character is always alpha (i.e. standard UNC
connections).
•
Ensure that networked computers are communicating with one another. The workstations need
to be electronically visible to each other. If the
computers can communicate, you can ping both
ways: client-to-server and vice-versa. Any
firewalls, proxies, routers, etc. between workstations could cause problems, unless a clear,
unrestricted, permanent path can be
established.
Installation
47
Upgrades
WIN-PAK supports upgrading from WIN-PAK 2.0
Release 3, WIN-PAK 2.0 Release 4, WIN-PAK PRO
Release 3, WIN-PAK PRO Release 4 and NStar.
Before upgrading, make a backup copy of your
database files. When prompted by the installation
program, DO NOT overwrite your existing database.
Also make backup copies of your Floor Plan
backgrounds, card holder photos and signatures.
Automatically Installed Microsoft Components
The WIN-PAK installation program installs several
utility upgrades during the normal installation
session. These are supplied as redistributable
Microsoft packages and are deployed automatically
based on the installed options.
Each of these components is installed by a separate
installation program that runs directly from the
WIN-PAK CD.
If prompted by the program, always keep the latest
drivers. Never overwrite a new driver with an old
driver.
When operating under Windows 2000/XP, WINPAK requires the following external components to be
installed:
MDAC: Microsoft Data Access Components
Used for the DB server interface to the MDB file, and
by the System Manager. Your installation may require
MDAC, or Microsoft Data Access Components be
installed. MDAC is installed by default in all
Operating Systems.
The MDAC components are considered part of the
operating system, and therefore are never removed,
even when a full uninstall is performed.
48
WIN-PAK User Guide
NOTE: Without IE 5.5, WIN-PAK will not be installed.
Sentinel: The Sentinel Hardware Lock Drivers
These are installed on all operating systems when the
Database Server is installed.

• Card Holder
• Holiday Group
• Time Zone
• DayLight Saving Group
• Operator
• Operator Levels
• Abstract Device
• Badge Layouts
• Command File
• Floor Plan
• Guard Tour
• Schedule

Most of the WIN-PAK databases are accessed
through a main database window, shown as follows:
User Overview
89
Database Record Lists
Below the title bar in database windows is a list of
database records. Use the scroll bars to move
through the list and data fields. Typically all records
in thedatabase are displayed in the list, while the
default sort order varies depending on the database.
For example, Card Holders are displayed
alphabetically by last name.
Search and Sort fields allow you to sort the list in a
particular order, or to search for records with a
particular characteristic. The search results are
displayed in the list. Select records in the database
list by highlighting them.
A range of records can be selected in some databases
by holding down the SHIFT key on your keyboard
while clicking the first and last record in the range.
Multiple, non-contiguous records can be selected by
holding down the CTRL key on your keyboard and
clicking on each record desired.
Viewing Detail Database Records
Select the Detail View check box at the bottom of a
database list (in the middle of the window) to open
the detailed view of a selected database record.
The Detail View can also be activated by
highlighting a record in the list and clicking the Edit
button on the database window. When accessed via
the Edit button, a database record can actually be
edited (as opposed to merely viewed).
90
WIN-PAK User Guide
Searching and Sorting Database Lists
Use the Search and Sort area of the database
window to indicate search characteristics to be
applied to the records list.
NOTE: The number of records returned from the result of
your search is restricted by the value set in your Workstation Defaults, Defaults tab: Maximum Records returned
from the Database Find List. Refer to “Workstation
Defaults” in this chapter for additional information.
Search Field: Select the name of the field for which
you want to search.
Criteria: Choose one of the operators from this list.
The available options vary depending on the
database in which you are working, but typically
include Greater Than, Less Than, and Equal To.
Search For: Type in a letter, word, phrase, or
numeric expression that you want to search for.
Sort By: This selection designates the order in which
the search results are displayed, (e.g. cards can be
displayed by card number or last name).
Update List: This button initiates a search based on
the information entered in the Search and Sort
fields.
User Overview
91
Database Operations
The action buttons on the right side of the Search
and Sort area allows you to perform a number of
operations on the database records.
Add: Opens a blank record window for entry of a
new record.
Edit: Opens an editable view of the selected record,
allowing the record to be changed.
Delete: Removes the selected record from the
database.
Isolating Database Records
Many databases have an Isolate function, which is
essential when deleting database records, as WINPAK does not allow the deletion of an item that is in
use.
The Isolate function allows you to view an item’s
usage and reassign elements without searching
through all the possible areas where the element
might be in use.
For example, in order to delete a time zone you must
first remove it from any panels, access levels, cards,
92
WIN-PAK User Guide
Clicking the Isolate button on a database window
calls the Isolate window.
Tabs across the top of the window show you where
the item is used. In each instance of the item’s usage,
you can remove it or reassign it, depending on where
it is being used.
When this process is complete, click OK to return to
the main database window. Now the item (in this
case the time zone) can be deleted by selecting it
from the database list and clicking Delete.
Copying Database Records
Some databases (e.g. Badge Layouts and Action
Groups) have a Copy function. Select a record and
click the Copy button to make a duplicate which can
be renamed and edited.
93
User Overview
Printing Database Reports
Click the Print Report button at the bottom of a
database window to view and print a report on the
current database. Generally, a filter dialog opens,
allowing you to select settings for the report.
Detail Database Record Windows
Many WIN-PAK databases have both a main
database window and a secondary (or detail) window.
The secondary window is sometimes called the
Record view, as it shows information on a particular
database record.
Highlight a database record from the list in the main
window, and select the Detail View check box. The
detail view of the database record opens. This new
window shows information on the currently selected
record.
The following illustration shows the detail view of a
Card database record. Notice the two tabs displayed
along the top of the window used to display different
types of information.
94
WIN-PAK User Guide
You can activate the detail view by selecting a record
from the main database window and clicking the
Edit button. At this point, the detail view becomes
active and the selected record can be edited.
Clicking Add on the main window opens a blank record
dialog, allowing a new database record to be entered.
NOTE: Workstation Defaults can be set so that the
Detail View opens whenever a database is opened. To
enable this option, select Workstation Defaults on the
System menu. Click the Always show record view
check box on the Defaults tab.
Tree Structures
Several WIN-PAK features use trees to display
information. Trees allow information to be organized
into logical or geographical groups. The tree structure
is created as you program your access control system,
therefore it is tailored to meet your specific needs.
There are six tree structures used within the WINPAK System: Device Map, Control Map, Control
Area, Access Area Map, Operator Level and
Tracking Area Map. The Device Map is unique in
that devices are actually defined as they are added to
the tree structure. The other trees define the
hierarchy or relationship of the resources, not the
resources themselves.
For example, Access Areas are defined by a lists of
entrances. The Access Area tree shown here provides
a way to view the data.
User Overview
95
The tree can be collapsed so that only the top level
of information is displayed. By clicking the plus sign
(+) to the left of a folder, the tree structure can be
expanded, one level at a time, to show all branches
and subbranches.
On some trees, whole branches can be copied or
moved.
Logging In to WIN-PAK

System Settings
This section explains how to set up operators and
operator levels, how to configure a workstation, and
how to set certain system defaults such as alarm
handling.
NOTE: Operator levels should be defined after the access
control hardware has been defined in the Control Map.
Operator Levels and Operators
Operators are individuals with defined rights and
privileges to view and/or change parts of the system.
Operator privileges can be very broad or they can be
greatly restricted [e.g. a workstation can be set up to
view alarms from just one door]. An administrator
can view and edit all devices, databases, and all parts
of the user interface.
Operators are defined by Operator Level and Time
Zone. Operator Level defines the system
components to which the Operator has access and
the Time Zone defines when the operator can log in
to the system.
User Overview
97
Operator access is password protected, and proper
password security must be maintained. Once WINPAK is installed, a password should be defined and
used for each operator. This is critical to the security
of the entire system.
Operator Level Database
The Operator Level database contains information
on existing Operator Levels. These levels define
what a given operator or group of operators can see
and do within the system.
The Operator Level database opens as a two-pane
window. On the left is a list of existing Operator
Levels. On the right is the Operator Level tree. The
Operator Level tree consists of control area devices,
along with databases, and user interface elements.
Individual operator levels are defined by assigning
rights to branches or individual items on the tree.

Working with Passwords
A good strategy for choosing a password that is both
easy to remember, but hard to decode, is to pick a
simple phrase preceded or followed by one or more
numbers. Enter it without spaces and capitalize each
word. Such a password cannot be easily decoded
either by a random number generator or by a
dictionary decoder.
For the greatest security, use a combination of both
letters and numbers. Avoid familiar terms such as
your company name, initials, birth dates, etc.
!WARNING! Passwords are case sensitive. When choosing a password, remember whether the letters are capitalized or not.

WIN-PAK User Guide
Use the Defaults tab to set the following:
Maximum Records returned from the Database
for Selecting List: This is the number of records
retrieved from a database for display in selection
lists. The default for this field is 200. A range from
20 to 2000 can be specified.
Maximum Records returned from the Database
for Find List: The number of records retrieved from
a database when a "Find" is conducted. The default
for this field is 20. A range from 1 to 1000 can be
specified.
User Overview
117
Record Retrieval and Performance
Maximum Record settings can be used to adjust
performance. For example, if a small number of records
is retrieved at one time, the wait time is quite short.
However, if a large number of records is selected, as you
scroll through the list of records, you may have to wait
again as the next group of records is retrieved. A small
number of records means the result is returned quicker
but the records must be retrieved more often for longer
displays. The default of twenty (20) for Find lists has
been selected as a general optimum value but that can
change depending on the types of database searches and
the speed of the computer being used.
Live Monitor: Use the list of defined CCTV
monitors to select the monitor output to be
connected to the video capture card, allowing the
video signal to be displayed when a live monitor
view is selected.

System Defaults
Selecting System Defaults from the WIN-PAK
System menu allows you to change certain system
settings relating to ADV access, card number length,
alarm handling, Email configuration, and type of
access levels.
Use the Defaults tab to set the following defaults:
Grant all operators access to ADVs not in
Control Tree: All ADVs that are not added to the
Control Areas are available to all operators.
124
WIN-PAK User Guide
Normally, only ADVs that are added to Control
Areas and configured for an operator's level are
available. This could cause a problem if an operator
creates an ADV. An administrator would be required
to add the ADV to the Control Areas, and provide
access to the new ADV in the operator level.
Selecting the Grant all operators... option means an
operator can create an ADV and then use it in the
system. Once an ADV is added to the Control Areas,
those settings override the global access.
Maximum Length of Card Numbers: Use the
drop-down list to indicate if the maximum length of
card numbers is 5, 12, or 16. This setting determines
the largest card number handled by the software. The
setting does not affect the control panel.
Allow only numeric Card Numbers: Prevents alpha
characters from being entered into the card number
field of the card database.

number for TCP/IP Connection on which the
Communication Server will talk to the TCP/IP
Panles.
Port for Encrypted TCP/IP Connection: Enter
the encrypted port number for Encrypted TCP/IP

User Overview
Auto Popup Alarm View Window: Allows the
Alarm View to open or restore view [if minimized]
when a new alarm is received and displayed in the
Alarm View. The Digital Video Popup window will
open if an event has a digital video camera associated to it.
Beep Until Alarm Acknowledged: This setting
ensures that an alarm will beep until it is acknowledged.
The beep is emitted from the PC’s speaker and is not
a sound file. Therefore, it works independently from
the computer’s multimedia, audio settings and
independently from WIN-PAK workstation sound
settings.
126
WIN-PAK User Guide
Allow Alarm to be Silenced for 60 seconds: Used
in conjunction with the "Beep until..." option, this
setting allows the operator to silence a beeping alarm
for sixty seconds, without actually acknowledging
the alarm.
Do Not Close Window Until all Alarms are
Acknowledged: Requires the operator to
acknowledge all alarms before closing the Alarm
View window.
Reissue Uncleared Alarms: Selected alarms that
are acknowledged but not cleared will be reissued.
Example: An alarm that is first received appears in
the top pane of the Alarm Monitor view. When the
alarm is acknowledged it will be sent to the lower
pane of the Alarm Monitor view and is left
uncleared. If that uncleared alarm goes to the
Normal condition, it remains in the lower pane. If
the alarm returns to the Alarm state, it will be
reissued, that is, it will jump to the top pane,
requiring the operator to acknowledge this new
alarm.
Note: Administrators are not affected by this option.
Require a Response when Acknowledging
Alarms: Requires the operator to add a note before
acknowledging an alarm.
Automatically Clear Acknowledged Alarms:
Automatically clears alarms when they are
acknowledged.

Maximum # of events in Maximum # of events
in view: The default setting allows for 1,000 of the
most recent events to be displayed in the event
viewer. Once the limit is achieved, the oldest event
is discarded as the new event is received. A range of
10 to 32,000 events can be set.
NOTE: To optimize system performance, minimize the
number of events being viewed and limits being set.
Auto-clear alarm limit (per point): The default
setting allows for 100 of the most recent alarm
events per point to be displayed in the Alarm View.
Once the limit is achieved, the oldest alarm event is
automatically cleared as the new alarm event is
received. An alarm acknow-ledgement can only be
performed by the operator and is logged into the
history file accordingly. The Auto-clear is logged into
the history using the operator that is logged in at the
time. A range of 10 to 500 alarm events can be set
in situations where no user is logged in.
NOTE: The alarm view “Cnt” (alarm count) will display the
entire count independently of the limit setting. The count
will be zeroed out when the operator clears the alarm.
Auto-clear card reads limit (per door): The
default setting allows for 100 of the most recent card
events per door to be displayed in the alarm view.
Once the limit is achieved, the oldest card event is
automatically acknowledged and cleared as the new
card event is received. The automatic
acknowledgement and clearing of the card event is
logged into the history using no operator name. Only
when the operator manually acknowledges or clears
the card event is the operator name logged into the
history with the action. A range of 10 to 500 card
events can be set.

Alarm View displays alarm and reader activity as it
happens.
The Alarm View window is divided into two
horizontal panes. Incoming alarms are displayed in

•
Red indicates an Alarm
Green indicates Normal
Yellow indicates Trouble
NOTE: An N-1000/PW-2000 panel can only detect a
trouble condition when an AEP-5 board is used.
139
User Overview
Once a point goes into alarm or trouble, the color
will not return to green. For example, if the first
message from a point or card is Normal, subsequent
Alarm or Trouble conditions change the alarm to red
or yellow.
After that, even if the point returns to a Normal
state, the message stays red (or alternates between
yellow and red). It does not return to green on a
Normal state.
The Count column on the Alarm View window
shows the number of times a point changes state.
Once this message is acknowledged, new Normal
messages are displayed in green.
Using the Alarm View Command Buttons
A set of buttons on the Alarm View window allow
you to easily handle basic, routine alarms tasks.
Acknowledge (Ack): To acknowledge an alarm,
select it from the list of incoming alarms and click
the Ack button. When the alarm is acknowledged, it
moves to the list in the lower pane of the Alarm
View window, unless the auto-clear option is
selected from System Defaults. The background
color of the transaction is now grey and the color of
the alarm text changes as well: green for normal,
yellow for trouble, and red for alarm. This color
changes with each new condition. Transactions
remain in the Acknowledged Alarm section of the
window until they are cleared.

NOTE: When acknowledging or clearing alarms, you can
select multiple, contiguous alarms by holding down the
SHIFT key on your keyboard and clicking the first and
last alarms in the range. Select multiple, noncontiguous
items in the list by holding down the CTRL (control) key
while selecting each individual alarm.
Alarm View Right-Click Menus
Right-click on any event in the upper pane of the
Alarm View window, and a control menu is made
available. The list of available commands depends
on the type of alarm selected.
For example, when working with inputs, doors,
readers, and panels, you can acknowledge or clear an
alarm, open a default floor plan, or add a note. When
working with a door alarm there are multiple ways to
lock and unlock the door or restore time zone
control to the door.
Filtering Alarm View
It is often impossible to monitor all card reads or
alarms from one view, therefore WIN-PAK has
several ways to filter events that appear in Alarm
View. You can select either card reads, alarms, or
both.
Additionally, by appropriately defining the Control
Area, you can select which devices are monitored in
a given instance of the Alarm View.
User Overview
141
Multiple Alarm windows can be open at one time,
each with its own filter selections. Once these views
are closed, the filter selections are cleared. To save the
control filter selection, refer to the next section,
"Linking Alarm View with a Floor Plan".
When a new Alarm View window is opened, the
default Filter Control settings [both alarms and card
reads from all devices] are restored with no
restrictions.
1
In the Filters area of the Alarm View window
select Alarm, Card Read, or Both, depending
on which messages you want displayed.
2
To further narrow the information coming to this
Alarm View, click the Control button. The Filter
Devices window is displayed.
3
Expand the tree by clicking on the plus signs.
142
WIN-PAK User Guide
4
Select the branch or individual devices you want
to monitor. To view alarms from a particular
branch, right-click on it and choose "Select to
include all devices in this area."
At this point, only events from the selected devices
are sent to the Alarm View. You can choose as many
or as few devices as you wish. Filtering could be very
useful for example, if a particular guard station needs
to monitor the loading dock. An Alarm View can be
defined that only receives messages from the loading
dock doors.
More than one Alarm View can be defined and open
at the same time. Thus, the same guard station could
have an Alarm View monitoring the loading dock
doors and another showing card reads and alarms
from the computer room.
Linking Alarm View with a Floor Plan
While Alarm View filter selections cannot be saved
on the main Alarm View window, you can create an
Alarm View link (with the filter selections you need)
on a floor plan definition.
With a floor plan definition open, create an Alarm
View link with the filter selections desired. Refer to the
"Floor Plans" section of the "Configuration" chapter
for details on adding an Alarm View link to a floor
plan.
When you open an Alarm View window from the floor
plan link, the filter properties you selected are applied.
These filter settings cannot be changed from the Alarm
View window, only from the floor plan definition.

clicking Clear. A note can be added to an alarm
before it is cleared.
The message box displays any notes added by the
operator plus messages associated with the alarm
state.

AutoCard Lookup
The AutoCard Lookup feature of WIN-PAK
automatically looks up cards from designated readers
or card reads with a status priority higher than a
designated threshold. When activated, AutoCard
Lookup opens a lookup window that can be left
open while other views are monitored. The window
can be resized by positioning the mouse pointer over
the window borders. When the pointer changes to
double arrows, click and drag the mouse to resize the
window.
If the lookup screen is minimized and a card read is
received, the AutoCard Lookup window
automatically pops up.
User Overview
145
If a picture is on file, the lookup window displays
the card holder picture, including the card holder
name, card number, time, date, reader name, and the
status of the card read. If the Note Fields check box
is selected, certain note field information is also
displayed. Note fields are selected in the Configure
AutoCard Lookup utility in the Configuration menu.
The lookup feature is filtered both by priority of card
read event and by selecting readers on the control
map. Using the Control Area filter, you can choose to
monitor as many or as few devices as you wish. The
filter can be very useful for example, if a particular
guard station is monitoring the computer room. An
AutoCard Lookup view can be defined which
receives events only from the computer room
readers.
The Buffer check box on the AutoCard Lookup
window freezes the current card on the lookup screen,
while saving any subsequent card reads in memory.
Deselecting the Buffer check box removes all stored
information and continues with the next card
presented.

Panel Buffer Commands
When a panel is buffered, transactions are stored in
the panel RAM memory. When a panel is unbuffered,
it transmits stored information to a computer, then
continues to transmit ongoing access transactions to
that computer in the unbuffered mode of operation.
A buffer command can be either hard or soft.
Normally, when an unbuffered panel receives a
buffer command, it switches to the buffered mode.
When the buffered panel receives an unbuffer
command, it switches back. However, if a panel
receives multiple soft buffer or unbuffer commands,
it does not switch modes until it receives the same
number of unbuffer or buffer commands.
An example of this would be to buffer [soft buffer]
certain panels in the system while leaving other
panels unbuffered, then shutting down the computer.
If the communication server is set to buffer on
exiting the database server, another buffer [soft
buffer] command is sent to all panels. When
restarting the computer, the services are started, and
based on communication server settings, the panels
are sent an unbuffered command [soft unbuffer]. The
previous panels that received two soft buffer
commands remain buffered, according the their
setting before shutting down the computer.
A hard buffer or unbuffer command overrides any
number of soft commands. When a panel receives a
hard buffer or unbuffer command it switches state,
regardless of how many soft buffer or unbuffer
commands have been received.

Guard Tour
A Guard Tour is a defined series of check points a
guard must activate within a given amount of time.
Usually the check points are readers where the guard
presents a card, but they can also be input points
attached to other devices, such as an egress button.
The check points can be sequenced (i.e. they must
be activated in the specified order) or unsequenced
(activated in any order).
Guard tours are defined in the Guard Tour database.
The tour definition sets the amount of time the
guard has to get from one check point to the next.
Alarms can be defined and priorities set for early
arrival, late arrival, or missed check points. These
alarms are defined in the Guard Tour database and
can be edited there or in the Action Group database.
A Guard Tour Server must be defined on the Device
Map.

Programming Overview
A great deal of planning is advised when setting up
any access control system, even one that is rather
simple. Use the following outline as a guide while
planning your system and gathering the necessary
information before you begin configuring your
system.
Databases in WIN-PAK store, organize, and retrieve
information for your access control system. They are
interrelated and while programming sequences can vary,
there are certain dependencies. In other words, some
data cannot be entered until other information is
already in place.
The following Programming Order summarizes the
information that needs to be entered in the system,
and provides a recommended order for entering that
information. Of course, the order can be adjusted to
fit your particular needs.
The tasks and items summarized here are detailed in
the following sections.
Programming Order
Your setup order will vary depending on the type
and complexity of your access control system. All
systems require planning before configuration can
begin. Review this chapter carefully, then assemble
all the necessary information before you begin.
To begin setup, you must have information about the
basic hardware and especially the communications
servers, adapters, network addresses and modems.
What follows is a broad overview of the
programming order for a simple access control system.
176
WIN-PAK User Guide
1 - Password Protect the Admin Operator
The Admin Operator is used to set up the system,
and the security of the system should be protected
by giving the Admin Operator a password.
See “Passwords” section further ahead in this
chapter for instructions on password-protecting your
Admin password.
!WARNING! Failure to change the manufacturer’s default password
greatly compromises the security of your system! It is
also recommended to delete/change the Admin Operator
name.
2 - Create Accounts
WIN-PAK PRO organizes card and cardholder
information by accounts. Even if there is only one
account in an access control system, that account
must be defined. The Card menu and sub-menus are
only available when an account is selected. You must
create at least one account in order to begin system
configuration. Then additional accounts can be
added immediately or later.
3 - Define Time Zones and Holiday Groups
Time Zones are named, defined time periods used
to determine when actions will happen. Actions, like
card access, can be allowed or restricted during a
time zone. Set up a master time zone of 24 hours a
day, 8 days per week, Sunday through Saturday plus
holidays. Designate additional time zones to meet
the needs of your facilities, for example day shift,
second shift, third shift, etc. Holiday time blocks can
be included in any time zone.
Holiday Groups are established because holidays
are often treated differently than other days. For
example, only certain employees may have access on
these days, or doors that are normally unlocked
during business hours might be locked on holidays.
Programming
177
A Holiday Group is a selection of days designated as
holidays. They must be defined in the Holiday
database, then be selected in the time zone
definition of the appropriate control panel.
4 - Define the Device Map
Devices must be defined and added to the system via
the Device Map. It is not necessary to have all the
devices operational before they are defined.
Devices include communication hardware, servers,
panels, readers, and CCTV equipment.
Following is an overview of device types that must
be added to the Device Map.
Communication Servers are branches on the
Device Map which defines your operating system,
active commun-ication ports, and any multi-port
boards. Information you need to know when setting
up Communication Servers include the machine
name, the operating system (Windows 2000/XP),
and the available communication ports.
Communication Loops branch off the
Communication Server. Once you have a
Communication Server defined, communication
loops can be added to it.
178
WIN-PAK User Guide
You will enter a definition for the type of
communication the loop uses (e.g., RS-232 or RS485), and the communication settings for your com
ports or TCP/IP address. Once a loop is added to a
Communication Server, panels can be added to the
loop.
Panels are added to communication loops. The
panel definition includes basic information on the
type of panel (e.g., NS2+, N-1000 series, PW-2000
series or P-Series), the card format it accepts, time
zones, inputs, outputs, groups, and readers.
Interlocking of input points and output points, as
well as shunt times and similar details, are entered in
the panel definition.
Servers configured on the Device Map allow
communication and control between various WINPAK devices and databases, including the Command
File Server, Communication Servers, Guard Tour
Server, Schedule Server, and Tracking and Muster
Server.
ADVs (abstract devices) should be created as each
device is defined. The ADV can be assigned to an
object placed on floor plans or control map that have
both monitoring and control functions.
Digital Video is a branch on the device map which
defines the digital video recorder system. For each
Digital Video connected to WIN-PAK, a seperate
device is added to the device map.
5 - Define Access Areas, Tracking Areas and
Control Areas
Access Areas are defined by adding entrances
[doors and readers from the control panels] to a tree
structure. Access Areas list entrances and indicate
where they are located. The Access Areas are then
used to define Access Levels.
179
Programming
Control Areas are used to partition devices for
Operator Level definitions. Communication server,
loops, panels, input points, output points, groups,
and readers are added to Control Areas by placing
them on a tree structure (which is eventually used to
create the Control Map).
Tracking Areas are sections of a facility defined by
selecting designated readers. Card reads within this
area are recorded and can be seen in the Tracking and
Muster view. In case of an emergency, card holders
are instructed to go to a muster area and present their
cards to a muster reader. The operator can then tell if
everyone has exited the Tracking Areas, and if not,
where they last presented their card. Tracking Areas
are defined by mapping them on a tree structure.
6 - Create Floor Plan Views
Floor Plans are constructed by placing ADVs on a
static background after your devices have been
defined. Monitoring and control functions are
accessed from the floor plan view.
Floor Plan Backgrounds are static graphics,
imported as Windows Metafiles (.wmf). The graphic
can be a map, a loop wiring diagram or even a simple
grid. Links to other floor plans can be added.
ADVs, which can be selected from a graphical toolbox,
are placed on the floor plan background creating both a
monitoring and control view. The ADVs signal alarms
and other events by changing color, blinking, and
emitting audible signals.
7 - Guard Tour
A Sequenced Guard Tour is a defined series of check
points (card readers and/or alarm points) that a
guard must activate within a given amount of time.
180
WIN-PAK User Guide
The Guard Tour definition sets the amount of time
the guard has to get from one check point to the next.
Alarms can be defined and priorities set for early
arrival, late arrival, unsequenced, or missed check
points.
An Unsequenced Guard Tour is defined as a series
of check points that must be activated without
required time or sequencing.
8 - Command File Database
Text files containing device instructions are stored in
the Command File database. Command Files are
defined by assigning a name and description to one or
more commands. This file is then saved as a
Command File.
In setting up an ADV Action Group, Command Files
can be used to set up dependencies. In other words,
when a particular event takes place, a designated
command file is activated. Sending out a text string to
the attached device (control panel, CCTV switcher
or other external devices connected by RS232 or
TCP/IP connection.
Passwords
WIN-PAK passwords are set in the Operator
database (which is accessible via the System menu).
NOTE: Operator access is password protected. Once
WIN-PAK is installed, a password should be defined and
used. This is critical to the security of your entire system. Always replace the default password with your own
secure password.
CAUTION: Failure to change the manufacturer’s default
password greatly compromises the security of your
system!
Programming
181
Keep the following in mind when setting up
passwords:
•
Passwords can be up to 20 characters length, and
are case sensitive
•
For the greatest security, use a combination of
both letters and numbers for your password
•
Do not use familiar terms such as your company
name, your name, initials, or birth date
A simple strategy for choosing a password that is
both easy to remember, but hard to decode is to pick
a simple phrase preceded or followed by one or more
numbers. Enter the password without spaces and
capitalize each word.
Such a password cannot be easily decoded either by
a random number generator or by dictionary decoder.
Yet the person who knows the phrase can remember
it without writing it down.
Admin Password
The Admin Operator is used to set up your access
control system, and the system security should be
protected by giving the Admin Operator a password.
Other operators may be defined to meet the needs of
monitoring and maintaining the system at a later
date, as needed.
Log out and log in again using the new Admin
password to verify that your new password has been
entered properly. Then proceed with your setup.
182

Quick-Start Wizard
Overview
After logging in to WIN-PAK for the first time on
the communication server, the Quick Start Wizard
window will appears. The communication server is
on a standalone computer where a complete
installation has been performed or in a networked
system, it is generally located on the WIN-PAK
database server.
Since the wizard requires access to several WINPAK databases, it is only available to operators with
administrator permissions. The wizard can be set to
not appear at each log in. The administrator can also
launch the wizard from the configuration menu.
The function of the Quick Start Wizard is to provide
a simple method using general system defaults along
with user-defined fields to create a basic functional
system.
Information is provided at each step to guide the
administrator through the process. Cards, panels and
readers can be added using the wizard. The cards are
given a default permission to be valid at all times
and for all readers in the system. Changes to the
cards can be made at the operator’s convenience.
When you are done using the wizard, click on Finish
and initialize the panels that were just added. To
initialize the panel(s) click on Operations, Control
Map and click on the + by Quick Start Control Area
to open up the branch. Right click on the panel that
was added and select Initialize, Select All and click
OK.
186
WIN-PAK User Guide
A panel initialization status window will display the
initialization progress. Repeat the procedure for as
many panels as were added to the system. Multiple
panels can be initialized at the same time on an RS485 line. If C-100 is being used, initialize one panel
at a time.
If this is the first time the wizard was run and there
were no previously defined WIN-PAK
communication ports, then the communication
server needs to be restarted. Restart the
communication server by stopping it from the WINPAK Service Manager and then start it. An error
indicating that the communication server is not
responding will appear [if the WIN-PAK User
Interface is open]. Click OK. When the
communication server is started, another message
will appear several seconds later indicating that it is
now working. This procedure only needs to be done
once, the first time. All other additions made by the
wizard will become available immediately after the
wizard is finished.
It is normal to receive alarm activities from the panel
during the beginning of the initialization process.
These alarms will be displayed on the Alarm View
window. To acknowledge the alarms, click on the
first event and then hold the shift key down and
select the last event. [You may use the scroll bars to
reach the end of the list.] Then click on Ack, which
will acknowledge the alarms. Use the same process
to select the acknowledged alarms, then click on
Clear to clear the alarms.
Your system is now operational. Refer to the rest of

Time Management
WIN-PAK Time Zones
Within the WIN-PAK System, a Time Zone is a
range of hours and days that is given a name. These
named time periods are used to define when actions
[such as doors unlocking or cards are valid] are
allowed in the access control system. For example,
when a panel is configured, you choose which time
zones are available at the panel.
Time Zones are made up of blocks of time or slots:
a start time, and end time, and days on which the
Time Zone is valid. Since a given Time Zone may
contain more than one block of time, the number of
blocks is indicated when the Time Zone is created.
There is no limit on the number of Time Zones that
can be created, however, a maximum of 63 time
slots can be downloaded to a PW-2000 series panel
and 255 blocks of time can be downloaded to a
PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller.
WIN-PAK keeps track of the number of slots
applied to a given panel and signals if you exceed the
limit.
Time Zones are combined with definitions of
physical devices to create access levels. An access
level then determines when and where access is
allowed.
A list of defined Time Zones can be viewed in the
Time Zone Database. You can search the list of
Time Zones and view details, or you can add, edit,
or delete the Time Zones in the database.
Time Zones are maintained via the Time
Management option on the Configuration menu.

Holiday Groups
A Holiday Group is a collection of holiday
definitions. Some holidays [like New Year’s Day]
occur on the same date every year, while others
occur on a different date each year. In the course of
defining Holiday Groups, you can indicate if a
holiday occurs on the same date every year.
Holiday Groups and Panels
Once a holiday group has been defined, it is associated
with a panel to allow for a change in access on holidays.
If you have Time Zones in a panel that have holidays
defined, you must have a Holiday Group assigned to
that panel.
For example, doors that are normally open between 8
a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday [excluding
holidays], could be locked during those same hours on
holidays defined as January 1, July 4 and December 25.
More than one Holiday Group can be defined, with
different groups being associated with different panels.
For example, in a retail business, some departments
may close on holidays while others remain open. In
such a case, define different Holiday Groups for each
department and associate them with the appropriate
panels.
Holiday Groups and Time Zones
If a holiday time block is included in a Time Zone
assigned to a card, a person using that card is allowed
access on a holiday. If there is no holiday time block in

Daylight Savings Groups
If your access control system encompasses locations
that use other than standard Daylight Savings
settings, you establish a special Daylight Savings
group to handle those locations.
NOTE: Refer to the “User Interface” section of chapter 3 of
this manual for details on working with database window
elements.
Defining a Daylight Savings Group
1
Select Daylight Saving Group from the Time
Management option on the Configuration
menu. The main Daylight Saving Group window
is displayed, listing groups that have already been
defined.
2
Click Add to define a Daylight Saving Group.
The Daylight Saving Record window is displayed.

215
3
Enter the Name of the group. Geographic
references are recommended.
4
Enter a short Description of the group.
5
Click the Add button to enter dates for the
group. The Daylight Time Saving dialog is
displayed.

Editing a Daylight Saving Group
Make changes to a Daylight Saving Group by
selecting it from the database window and clicking
the Edit button.
The Daylight Saving Record window is displayed,
from which the Name and Description can be
changed. Edit individual group parameters by
selecting them from the Start and End Date list,
and clicking the Edit button to open the Daylight
Time Saving dialog.
Isolating and Deleting Daylight Saving Groups
Daylight Saving Groups are attached to panels
within the access control system. Deleting a group
not in use is simply a matter of selecting it and
clicking the Delete button on the main Daylight
Saving Group database window.
However, deleting a group, without first cleaning up
all the locations where it is used, could leave the
system with undefined states of operation.
Fortunately WIN-PAK provides an Isolate tool to make
this cleanup easy. Clicking the Isolate button [with the
appropriate Daylight Saving Group selected in the
Daylight Saving Group window produces a dialog
that displays which panels reference this Daylight
Saving Group.
This dialog also allows you to make adjustments in
the panel definitions to remove the need for this
group. After the Daylight Saving Group has been
isolated it can be deleted.

Device Map
The Device Map [accessed from the WIN-PAK
Configuration menu] allows you to view the physical
devices that make up your access control system and
shows how they are connected to one another.
Physical Devices and Abstract Devices
Access control system devices are identified by
adding them to the device tree. As each physical
device [e.g. a panel or a modem pool] is added to the
Device Map, a logical representation known as an
ADV (abstract device) should be created for it.
ADVs are hardware independent devices, allowing a
management layer between the hardware, WIN-PAK
software, and the database. These ADVs are then
used on floor plans and control maps to monitor and
control the devices.
Each ADV is associated with an Action Group,
which determines system actions such as activating a
command file or playing a sound file in reaction to
transactions from the device. An Action Group can
be edited from the Action Group database to make
global changes in all ADVs associated with a
particular action group.
218
WIN-PAK User Guide
Using the Device Map
The Device Map is set up in a graphical tree
structure representing the physical connections of
The highest level in the Device Map is the Devices
folder. Servers, including the Communication Server,
are added at this level.
• CCTV switchers and various types of panel loops
are added to the Communication Server.
• Panels are then added to the panel loops, and
CCTV cameras and monitors are added to the CCTV
switchers.
• Card readers and keypads, input points and output
points are defined in the panel configuration.
Once these devices have been added to the Device
Map, and corresponding ADVs defined, they can be
used in the definition of Access Areas, Control
Areas, and Tracking and Muster Areas.
Device Maintenance
Device configurations and ADV definitions can be
edited from the Device Map: Right-click any device,
and select Configure from the menu.
Programming
219
Devices can also be deleted from the system by
deleting them from the Device Map: Right-click a
device, and click Delete. However, you cannot
delete devices which have ADVs that are in use. The
Isolate option lets you identify where a device is
used [e.g. operator level, floor plan, control map] and
change its usage so that it can be deleted.
Abstract Devices
An ADV is a logical representation of a physical
device. ADVs represent all the system hardware and
services available for viewing and/or control.
Similar to an icon, an ADV is associated with an
actual device in your access control system, such as a
panel or alarm. ADVs provide a graphic interface for
monitoring the status and controlling the actions of a
physical device. ADVs can be placed on Floor Plans
for monitoring and controlling the WIN-PAK system.
In operation, the ADV signals the state or status of
the object by blinking and/or changing color. A
sound file can also be associated with the ADV to
signal a change in state.
Each ADV has a control user interface that allows
the user to execute functions available for that
object. Right-clicking the ADV opens the control
menu. Drag and drop functionality is available in
some cases. For example a camera object can be
selected, then clicked and dropped onto a monitor
object to initiate a switch.
Colors, blinking, and other ADV properties can be
edited, and the ADV can be resized and rotated in
the Floor Plan Definition utility.
Each ADV is associated with an Action Group,
which defines the priority of a given event related to
the device, as well as any actions that should take
place in response to an event. When an Action
Group is edited, all ADVs associated with it are
changed, globally.

Action Groups
An Action Group is a set of actions assigned to a
device when its ADV is defined. The Action Group
defines what will happen in response to a given event.
For example, a Loop Action Group definition defines
what happens when the state of a communication loop
changes from OK to Trouble, or from Trouble back
to OK.
Responses can include sending a command file [when
an event is received, acknowledged, or cleared] and/
or the activation of a sound file. Additionally, a
message can be attached which appears in the Alarm
Details view when the initiating action occurs.
The list of trigger events available depends on the
type of device being configured. For example, a
supervised input point Action Group will include
three sets of Actions triggered when the state of the
point is Active, Normal, and Trouble. Each state is
assigned a priority and a Time Zone during which the
actions apply. [If a state is assigned a priority of zero,
no actions apply. The Time Zone defaults to Always,
meaning the action is always applicable.]
Command files and sound files can be associated with
an event. The event can be written to a file and can be
printed. If a message is associated with the event, the
message appears in the Details window, opened from
the Alarm View window.
An Action Group can be edited from the Action
Group database to make global changes to all ADVs
associated with a particular Action Group.
If you wish to change an Action Group feature for a
single ADV, you must open the device from the
Device Map, rename the Action Group Template or
choose ".Custom" and then edit the new template.
Once an Action Group [except ".Custom"] has been
created, it can be used as a template for other
devices of the same type.

Servers
A series of servers configured on the Device Map
allow communication and control between various
WIN-PAK devices and databases.
This section explains how to set up the Command
File Server, Communication Server, Guard Tour
Server, Schedule Server, and Tracking and Muster
Server.
Communication Server
In order to communicate with system devices,
including panel loops, panels, and CCTV switchers,
you must configure a Communication Server. WINPAK supports one or more Communication Servers
depending on the type of license.
During installation of the WIN-PAK software, a
communication server module is installed on a
designated PC. This can be the same machine as the
Database Server or another computer in the system.
Communication Servers are defined by adding them
to the Device Map and creating an ADV. When
creating multiple communication servers, you can
define one and then copy it, making any necessary
changes for the subsequent servers.
NOTE: When a server is added to the Device Map, you
must log out and log in again before the change takes
effect.
Configuring a Communication Server

Modem Pools
Modem connections can be used to communicate

Modems can be used to communicate with the PRO2200 Intelligent Controller as well as the following:
•
C-100 loops
•
485 with a HUB (non-ACK-NAK) loops
•
485 with a HUB (ACK-NAK) loops
For each type of panel configuration, the options
available are the same as for local panel loops. For an
explanation of the options refer to the proceeding
sections.
Modem pools, like other communication
connections, are defined by adding them to the
Device Map. You must have a communication server
with an available communication port for each
modem you are adding.
Once the pool is defined, the panel loops or panels

WIN-PAK User Guide
Panels
Planning is essential when configuring panels. The
accumulation and understanding of a great deal of
information about the setup of your access control
system is required. This includes card formats, the
type of readers and keypads used, and numerous
options for input and output points.
Using the Configuration Wizard
With the help of a configuration wizard, WIN-PAK
leads you through a series of dialogs and windows
that guide you through the panel definition process.
At each step in the setup process simply select or
enter the information that applies to your system and
is necessary to configure the specific communication
interface being set up.
Although the dialogs presented may vary slightly
depending upon certain selections made, typically,
you select or enter information on each dialog, and
click the Next button to move to the next window.
The Back buttons on the dialogs allow you to review
or edit information you have already added. Click
the Cancel button to exit the setup process without
saving any information entered. System
documentation is available via the Help button.
When you have finished all of the dialogs the Next
button text changes to read Finish, allowing you to
save your entries and complete the setup process.
Because of the amount of information and the
number of options, adding panels to a large system
can be very time consuming. There are a few
shortcuts that can speed up the process. First of all,
note that once a panel has been defined, it can be
copied and then edited, if necessary. Second, action
groups act as templates: once an action group is
defined, it can be used in defining all ADVs of the
same type.
Programming
297
In addition, action groups can be copied and then
edited, allowing you to quickly create a variety of
action groups to choose from.
Panel definitions are added to the Device Map. They
can be copied by right-clicking, and then dragging
and dropping them onto a communication interface
on the Device Map. Similarly, whole branches on the
Device Map can be copied.
For example, if you define a C-100 loop with four
panels, you can right-click and drag the C-100 to a
communication server, click copy, and a new loop
plus panels is added to your system.
Adding Panels in WIN-PAK
Three families of control panels are available for use

Panel Configuration – Options
Enable or disable options as desired. Refer to the
descriptions of the options below.
Anti-Passback
Select the Anti-Passback check box to enable AntiPassback, which discourages users from entering
with others without using their own cards. Cards
must be used at a designated In reader, then at a
designated Out reader before the card can be read in
again. If the in/out/in pattern is broken, an antipassback violation occurs and access is denied. A
reader is required on each side of the door for this
option.
Programming
309
If anti-passback is selected for any panel in a given
area, the result is global anti-passback where the card
must be presented at any out reader before it can be
read in again without a violation.
The PW-2000-II and PW-2000-III support two
readers. Reader 1 is the In reader and reader 2 is the
Out reader.
The PW-2000-IV (X) supports four readers. Readers
1 and 3 are considered the In readers, while readers 2
and 4 are considered the Out readers.
Forgiveness
Anti-passback can be used with or without
Forgiveness. With Forgiveness turned on, all cards
are reset at midnight so that if card users leave the
building in the evening without using anti-passback
out readers, they are allowed normal entry the next
morning. Without forgiveness, an anti-passback
violation occurs in this instance also. Forgiveness is
not available unless anti-passback is selected.
NOTE: If the Anti-passback option is not selected, WINPAK defaults to a free egress configuration. A card is not
required to exit. Instead, the door can be activated by a
button, motion detector, or other device. For example, with
an PW-2000-II panel, Card Reader 1 activates one door,
and Card Reader 2 activates a different door. Inputs 3 and
4 are reserved for the exit devices for these two doors
which releases locks just like a valid card read.
Groups
Select the Groups check box if you want to create
output relay groups. Output relay groups allow a card
read to activate more than one output relay for
applications such as elevator control.
When the Groups option is used, a valid card read on
Reader 1 pulses the group, while a valid card read on
Reader 2 pulses Relay 2.
310
WIN-PAK User Guide
For a valid card read on any reader to pulse the
group, select the All readers use the same group
option.
Groups must be selected to access the AEP-3 in the
Hardware Options section of this window.
Keypads
Select the Keypads option if matrix style (11-wire)
keypads are used with the panel. If using Wiegand
style (5-wire) keypads, the keypad is treated as a
reader and this option should not be selected.
PIN and Time Zone for PIN
These options are available only if the Keypad
option is selected. Select PIN (personal
identification number) if a keycode must be entered
before presenting a card to gain access. Do not select
this option if the panel is using keypads without
readers.
From the Time Zone for PIN list, select the time
zone during which a PIN is required.
Continuous Card Reads
Select this option to allow card readers to read cards
continuously, independent of output pulse time. If
the option is not selected, card readers do not
recognize valid cards while the corresponding output
is energized.
For example, without the Continuous Card Reads
option selected and Output 1 assigned a 10 second
pulse time, a valid card read at Reader 1 causes
Output 1 to energize for 10 seconds, during which
time the card reader does not recognize any other
valid cards.
Programming
311
Reverse Read LEDs
Select this option to reverse the standard LED
operation of the reader. If this option is selected, a
reader that normally changes from green to red on a
valid card read, will change from red to green.
Split Time Zone
The Split Time Zone option is not available when
adding a PW-2000 panel.
Command File
Provides the name of the defined command files that
contain special programming for the control panel. A
command file must be defined before it can be
selected.
Initialization Command
The Initialization Command field displays the
command string sent to the panel at initialization,
based on the Advanced Options selected. Note that
as an option is selected or deselected, a
corresponding string in the Initialization Command
field is added or removed.
Site Codes
Enter up to 8 site codes in this section. Site codes
are encoded on cards, along with a card number, to
ensure that cards belong to the facility where access
is attempted. Click any space in the table to enter a
site code. If no site code is defined, then site code
checking is not performed.
NOTE: When the system is set up for 12-digit card
number (ABA card formats), Site Codes cannot be
entered.

WIN-PAK User Guide
Hardware Options
The available hardware options vary depending on
the type of panel selected. The AEP-5 (supervised
input board) and ERB (Expanded Relay Board) are
only used with PW-2000-II panels.
If the Groups option is selected, you can select one
or two AEP-3 Output Expansion Boards. Each
board adds eight output relays to a panel.
Host Grant
Host Grant options provide fault tolerance should a
card not be found in the panel. Host Grant options
are used when, for example, the total number of
cards that are to be valid at a panel exceeds the panel
capacity or if the card update scheduler is used and
the card is presented before the scheduled update
has occurred.
There are three modes of operation of Host Grant.
Disabled: The card number must exist at the panel
for access to be granted. The Host (WIN-PAK 2.0)
computer will not grant any access.
Open Door: If a card is received as an alarm event
from the N-1000, with Host Grant set to the
OpenDoor mode, the event will be checked against
the WIN-PAK 2.0 database. If the card is valid for
access at that door and time, then a pulse (door
open) command is sent and the event is treated as a
normal card event in history. The Event View will
show it as "Host Grant – Door unlocked" along with
card-holder name and other related event
information. If the event oocurs outside the two
minute time limit, it is processed as an alarm event
and access is not granted.
Programming
313
Open Door and Update Panel: Same as Open or
mode except the validated card is updated to the
panel. The event viewer will display "Host Grant –
Card downloaded" along with card-holder name and
other related event information. If outside the two
minute time limit, the door is not unlocked but the
card is updated at the panel so the next time the card
is used at the panel it will be treated as a valid card
at the panel.
The Host must receive "Alarm" card events within
two minutes to be processed. This two minute time
limit is enforced in the event that a panel may be
buffered or offline (remote location) for a period that
exceeds two minutes, therefore preventing any
unauthorized door openings.

with all PW-2000 series panels. Requires that all
input points tied to a single output return to a
normal state before the output is de-energized.
Without MIP, just one input returning to the normal
state de-energizes the output.
PFR (Power Fail Reroute): Only available with the
PW-2000-II using AEP-5. Allows Input 8 [Primary
Power] to be rerouted to Input 9 [Primary Power System Alarm] freeing up Input 8 on the AEP-5 to
be used as a stan,dard/supervised input point.
OL (16 bit card number plus site code): Available
with all PW-2000 series panels. Creates Wiegand card
numbers by concantenating the site code with the
card numbers. The result is transmitted as a 12-digit
number. Do Not add site codes to the panel with
this option.
The OJ and OL options are mutually exclusive. They
cannot be used at the same time.
OJ (20 bit card number plus site code): Only
available with 8.03 firmware or higher. Sets the format
for 20 bit card numbers. The first 12 bits are interpreted
as the site code and the last 8 as the card number. The
card number is sent to the head end software as a 12digit number.
315
Programming
U option: Available with all PW-2000 series panels.
Allows the user to change the number of cards the
panel supports. Selecting more cards reduces the
number of buffers available to store events when the
panel is not online with the computer [or heavy
traffic prevents immediate transmission of all
events].
OH (25 bit card number plus site code):
Available for use with firmware later than 8.03.
Allows special card format applications.
Initialization Command
The Initialization Command field displays the
command string sent to the panel at initialization,
based on the Advanced Options selected. Note that
as an option is selected or deselected, a
corresponding string in the Initialization Command
field is added or removed.
Number of Cards (U Option)
The Number of Cards option allows you to enter the
number of cards for the panel, if the U advanced
option is selected.
Outputs for Duress
The Outputs for Duress (Duress Option) is only
available with the PW-2000 with 8.03 firmware.
When configured for PIN operation, if a PIN is used
with a value that is one number different from the
valid PIN, then the output defined in Outputs for
Duress will pulse. When configured with firmware
later than 8.03, then 2 outputs can be selected.

Panel Configuration – Inputs
The panel input points are configured on this Inputs
window. All input points available on the current panel
are shown in the Name list.
1
In the Name list, select the check box for each
input point you want to activate. Once an input
point is selected, other options on the window
become available.
WIN-PAK sets some input points as active and
may assign them an interlock value. These
default settings vary depending on the type of
panel and whether or not you have chosen the
anti-passback option. All these settings can be
edited.
2
Use the Time Zone drop-down list to attach a
time zone to an input point.
Programming
317
For example, to shunt [deactivate] an input point
during a particular time zone, select that time
zone from the list. The Time Zone defaults to
None.
3
Shunt Time only comes into play when an event
[an interlock, or manual shunt, for example] is
applied to the input point. Enter a value in the
Shunt Time field to set the amount of time that
the input point is deactivated [shunted] when
triggered. This can be set in seconds, minutes, or
hours using the radio buttons directly above the
option.
The field defaults to 15 seconds, but can be set
from 0 to 63 seconds, 0 to 63 minutes, 0 to 63
hours.
Shunt Time cannot be applied to door status or
door inputs.
4
Debounce Time sets the amount of time [in
seconds] that an input must be in a changed state
before that change is reported. In other words, a
debounce cycle instructs the system to ignore an
alarm for a specific period of time. For example,
an input point with a debounce time of 4 [the
default] must be in an alarm state for four cycles
before it is reported as an alarm. The same is
true when it returns to normal condition. The
input point will not report as normal until it is in
the normal state for the debounce period.
Debounce time can be set from 0 to 255 seconds.
5
In the case of input points, Interlocking refers to
linking the changing state of the input to either
another input point, an output point, or a group
of outputs. Refer to the following section,
"Enabling Interlocking for Inputs" for details on
interlocking.
6
All PW-2000 alarm input points default to
normally closed, non-supervised circuits used to
monitor changes of state.
318
WIN-PAK User Guide
The inputs on an PW-2000 with an AEP-5
default to normally closed, supervised circuit to
monitor changes of state.
PW-2000-III/IV inputs can also be configured for
normally open circuits and 3-state supervised
circuits.
Select the Supervised check box to configure
the selected input point as supervised. Then
select either the Normally Open, or Normally
Closed radio button.
7
If the selected input point is unsupervised, you
can choose to Report Alarms Never or Always.
If the input point is supervised, the Trouble
option is also available, which reports only
Trouble conditions.
8
Create an ADV for each input point. Click the
Add button in the upper right corner of the
Inputs window, and set priorities for each state
you want to monitor.

On returning to the Inputs window [after creating
ADVs for the input points to be monitored] click
Next to advance to the Panel Configuration Outputs window.
Enabling Interlocking for Inputs
Interlocking allows you to interlock a selected input
point with another input point, an output point, or a
group of output points.
When an input point is interlocked to an output
point, and there is a change of status in the input
point, the system performs the operation specified.

ensures that a card must be presented at any Out
reader before it can be read In again. The cards
must be used at a designated In reader, then at a
designated Out reader before the card can be
read In again. If this in/out/in pattern is broken,
an anti-passback violation occurs and access is
denied. A reader is required on each side of the
door for this option. Global Anti-Passback
applies for all the readers of the panels
connected in the same loop.
Programming
341
Forgiveness
Global Anti-passback can be used with or without
Forgiveness. With Forgiveness turned on, all cards
are reset at midnight so that if card users leave the
building in the evening without using Global Antipassback out readers, they are allowed normal entry
the next morning. Without forgiveness, Global AntiPassback violation occurs in this instance also.
Forgiveness is not available unless Global AntiPassback is selected.
NOTE: If the Global Anti-passback option is not selected,
WIN-PAK defaults to a free egress configuration. A card is
not required to exit. Instead, the door can be activated by
a button, motion detector, or other device.
Keypads
Select the Keypads option if matrix style (11-wire)

Site Codes
Enter up to 8 site codes in this section. Site codes are
encoded on cards, along with a card number, to ensure
that cards belong to the facility where access is
attempted. Click any space in the table to enter a site
code. If no site code is defined, then site code checking
is not performed.
Host Grant
Host Grant options provide fault tolerance should a card
not be found in the panel. Host Grant options are used
when, for example, the total number of cards that are to
be valid at a panel exceeds the panel capacity or if the
card update scheduler is used and the card is presented
before the scheduled update has occurred.
There are three modes of operation of Host Grant.
Disabled: The card number must exist at the panel for
access to be granted. The Host (WIN-PAK 2.0)
computer will not grant any access.
Programming
343
Open Door: If a card is received as an alarm event
from the NS2+, with Host Grant set to the Open
Door mode, the event will be checked against the
WIN-PAK database. If the card is valid for access at
that door and time, then a pulse (door open)
command is sent and the event is treated as a normal
card event in history. The Event View will show it as
"Host Grant – Door unlocked" along with cardholder name and other related event information. If
the event oocurs outside the two minute time limit,
it is processed as an alarm event and access is not
granted.
Open Door and Update Panel: Same as Open or
mode except the validated card is updated to the
panel. The event viewer will display "Host Grant –
Card downloaded" along with card-holder name and
other related event information. If outside the two
minute time limit, the door is not unlocked but the
card is updated at the panel so the next time the card
is used at the panel it will be treated as a valid card
at the panel.
The Host must receive "Alarm" card events within
two minutes to be processed. This two minute time
limit is enforced in the event that a panel may be
buffered or offline (remote location) for a period that

When an active input point is selected, the following
options are available:
Time Zone: To shunt (deactivate) an input point
during a particular time zone, select that time zone
from the list.
Shunt Time: Enter a value (0 to 63) to set the
amount of time that the input point is deactivated
(shunted) when triggered. This can be set in seconds,
minutes or hours by using the selection buttons
directly above the option.
Debounce Time: Enter a value (0 to 255) to set the
amount of time, in seconds, that an input must be in
a changed state before that change is reported. For
example, an input point with a debounce time of 5
must be in active condition for five seconds before it
is reported as an alarm. The same is true when
returning to normal condition. The point would not
report as normal until it was in the normal state for
five seconds. If the value is set to zero, the debounce
time is a minimum of .33 seconds on events going to
normal, but alarms are reported immediately
(debounce time is 0 seconds on alarm).
Supervised: All alarm input points default to
normally closed, non-supervised circuits used to
monitor changes of state. Inputs can also be
configured for normally open circuits and 3-state
supervised circuits. Select this check box to
configure the selected input point as supervised, and
then select your choice of Normally Open, or

Configuring a PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller
A PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller can be added to a
PRO-2200 Loop, a PRO-2200 Modem Pool, or
directly to a Communication Server.
A direct connection to the Intelligent Controller
allows the Host PC to communicate directly with the
PRO-2200 panel via a direct RS-232 connection
from the Host PC to the Intelligent Controller. Or,
network connectivity can be utilized by attaching a
TCP/IP board to the Intelligent Controller (Part #
PRO22EN).
Setting Up a Direct Connection
With the Device Map open, right-click on a
Communication Server and select Direct PRO-2200
Controller from the menu.
The PRO-2200 Configuration - Basic window is
displayed (next illustration).
Programming
355
PRO-2200 Configuration – Basic
Use the PRO-2200 Configuration Basic window to
name and describe the panel, indicate the controller
address on the panel, and set the retry and timeout
options.
Name and describe the control panel as appropriate.
The names and descriptions that you use are not
operationally important, as long as you are able to
identify them when setting up access levels later.
1
Enter a unique Name for the panel, using up to
30 alphanumeric characters. Typically, the panel
location is used for the name [Lobby, for example]. This is a required field.
2
A Description of the panel can be added. The
description is optional, and can be up to 60
alphanumeric characters in length.
356
WIN-PAK User Guide
3
Enter the Controller Address [also known as
the Panel Address]. This corresponds to the DIP
Switch setting on the control panel and falls
within the range of one to eight. See the PRO2200 Intelligent Controller Installation Manual
for details.
4
The Host Retry Count is the number of times
the controller will try to make contact with the
panel before sending an alarm indicating it is
offline.
For example, if the Host Retry Count is set to 3
and the DLL receives a bad packet [or does not
get an answer from the Intelligent Controller]
then the DLL will send the packet three more
times.
Host Retry Counts can be set from 2 to 10 [with
3 as the default]. A range of 2 to 4 is recommended for most applications. Retry counts
above 4 would indicate extreme circumstances.
5
The Time to Controller Offline is monitored
and kept within the Intelligent Controller. If the
Intelligent Controller receives neither a poll nor a
message [for example, if it loses communication
with the DLL], it waits the programmed time
then declares that communications with the DLL
have been lost.
The Time to Controller Offline can be set from
10 to 65 seconds [with 15 seconds as the default]. A range of 10 to 30 seconds is recommended for most applications.

359
3
The RTS Mode (Request to Send) allows the
device on the other end to know the Intelligent
Controller is ready to send information. The RTS
Mode defaults to "Always On."
The "Toggle" RTS Mode applies when there is
an RS-485 to RS-232 converter that requires a
handshake. The Toggle option is never used for a
direct connection.

TCP/IP Options
The following options are only available if a network
card is installed on the PC, and the PRO-2200
Intelligent Controller is being configured for a TCP/
IP connection.
5
The Controller Reply Timeout is the duration
the Host PC (DLL) will wait for an acknowledgment after it has sent an outgoing packet.
If acknowledgment is not received within the
specified time, the Host PC (DLL) will resend
the packet. The host will retry according to the
Host Retry Count set in the panel. The timeout
defaults to 500 mSec but can be set from 200 to
1500 mSec. 400 to 600 mSec is a reasonable
setting for network connections. The setting
should be higher for a WAN.
6
The Poll Delay [which only affects incoming
communication] allows the system to delay
polling to avoid loading down the network if
there is no activity. The default for the Poll
Delay is 2 seconds, but can range from zero to 5.
Poll Delay is used only if the communications
channel type is set to TCP/IP (meaning that this
value is ignored for Serial Port communication
channel types, and DialUps).
360
WIN-PAK User Guide
There is no delay if there is something to be sent
from the software, or if the panel has more to
report. For example:
Outgoing commands posted by the application
are not delayed.
No delay is applied if the panel signals, via a
reply, that it has unreported transactions. Reply
headers have a "poll-me" flag.
7
The TCP/IP Retry Connect Interval is the
amount of time the system waits to reopen a
socket after a connection to the network is lost
and the socket is closed. The system waits this
amount of time then tries to determine if there is
a device at the other end of the socket. If a
device is found, a new socket is opened. The
default for this interval is 15 seconds, but it can
be set from 5 to 30 seconds.
8
When a TCP/IP connection is being established,
the IP address configured for the LAN card must
be entered in the Controller IP Address or
Node Name field. Use the browse button to the
right of the field to locate the IP address or node
name.

field defaults to 5000.
4
The Number of Transactions to hold when
offline defaults to 10,000 [but can be decreased
to 1000 or increased to 100,000].
364
WIN-PAK User Guide
This number can be decreased or increased to
provide more or less memory for cards if necessary.
1 transaction = 16 bytes (so 100,000 transactions takes up 1.6 MB of memory).
1 card record = between 20 to 80 bytes. This
depends upon the use of precision access levels
vs. multiple access levels, and the number of
card readers per Intelligent Controller.
Adding an extended memory board to the Intelligent Controller will provide more memory to
work with.
5
Host Grant options provide fault tolerance
should a card not be found in the panel database.
See "Host Grant Options and Descriptions"
(below) for more information.
Host Grant Options and Descriptions
Open Door
The Open Door option tells the system to open the door
only when the card is found in the database, and when
that card has access to the particular reader (or reader on
the panel) with the Host Grant feature enabled. The card
does not have to be present in the panel in order to grant
a cardholder access when the Host Grant "Open Door"
feature is enabled. For example: Card 12345 is swiped at
a door reader. WIN-PAK immediately checks the card
database to see if the card should have access at that
door. If so, WIN-PAK pulses the door lock output so the
cardholder is granted access. The card read appears in
Alarm View as Host Grant, Door Unlocked. Card 12345
remains in the WIN-PAK card database, however it is not
downloaded to the panel database until that panel has
been initialized with cards. If the panel has not been
initialized with cards and the same card swipe comes in
again, the door again opens and the card reports as Host
Grant, Door Unlocked. If the panel has been initialized
with cards and the same card swipe comes in, the door
opens and the card reports as a Valid Card.
Programming
365
Open Door and Update Panel
Not all cards have to be present in the panel in order to
grant a cardholder access when the Host Grant "Open
Door and Update Panel" feature is enabled. For example:
Card 12345 is swiped at a door reader. WIN-PAK
immediately checks the card database to see if the card
should have access at that door. If so, WIN-PAK pulses
the door lock output so the cardholder is granted access
and also downloads the card to that particular panel
database. The card read appears in Alarm View as Host
Grant, Card downloaded. After the card has been
downloaded, when it is again swiped at that panel, the
card read now reports as a Valid Card.
Disable
Disable deactivates the Host Grant feature altogether. All
cards have to be present in the panel in order for access
to be granted.

Click the Next button to advance to the Card
Formats window.
NOTE: For remote configuration, the System tab will

PRO-2200 Configuration – Card Formats
The Card Formats window is used to program the
panel to understand the card formats that will be
used. Up to eight different card formats can be used
for each PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller.
WIN-PAK and the PRO-2200 allow you to set up to
eight different card Formats. The fields on the Card
Formats window are active (or grayed out)
depending on the card option selected (Not Used,
Default, Custom).
For example, if you select the Custom option, and
Wiegand as the format type, the field in the lower
left area of the window require configuration, as
shown in the next illustration. Each of the options is
explained in this section.
366
WIN-PAK User Guide
1
Use the Format # drop-down list to indicate the
format number being configured. There can be
up to eight card formats per panel.
2
In the Option area, indicate whether the selected
format is Not Used, a predefined Default format,
or a Custom format.
Naturally, any format (1–8) not being used,
defaults to the Not Used option. When a format
is designated as Not Used, none of the remaining
fields on the window are available.
The Default option allows you to select from
among three predefined card formats: 26 Bit
Wiegand, 32 Bit Northern, or 34 Bit Northern.
The Custom option allows you to indicate a
format type and configure the card format specs.
Programming
367
explained in this section.
3
Format Types include Wiegand [five-digit
cards] and ABA [12-digit cards]. Format
Types are only available if Custom is selected
as the option (above).
4
Site Codes are additional codes included in the
cards and can be used for extra security whenever needed. When a site code is entered, the
panel has to validate both the card number and
the site code. If no site code is entered on the
Card Formats window, the site code on a card is
ignored and all cards with the correct card
number will generate a valid read.
Since only a limited number of formats and site
codes (eight) can be stored in each panel, it is
recommended that additional/replacement cards
be ordered in larger batches. If this cannot be
done, you may order cards manufactured with a
specific site code.
5
The Card ID Offset number (defaults to zero)
allows you to use cards with different formats,
but the same number (duplicate card numbers)
within a system. This is done by adding the
specified offset number to the designated
format's card number. Card ID Offsets can be
programmed in each of the eight formats possible on the PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller.
For example: An organization has two sets of
cards, both numbered from 1 to 500, for a total
of 1000 cards.
One set of cards is 26-bit Wiegand. The other is
12-digit ABA.
Format 1 would be designated as 26-bit
Wiegand. The offset would be left as zero. Cards
1 to 500 are then added to the card database.
Any 26-bit formatted cards numbered 1 to 500
368
WIN-PAK User Guide
that are swiped will now work dependent upon
each card's access level.
To add the batch of 12-digit cards numbered 1 to
500, a new format is created, set up as an ABA
format type. The card offset can then be set to
1000, and this offset number will be added to all
the 12-digit cards.
Instead of programming card numbers 1 to 500,
which already exists in the database, the user will
need to program in the 12-digit cards as 1001 to
1500. When any of the 12-digit cards are swiped
they will come in with the offset number added
to the original card number, and grant access
where appropriate.
6
Three Default Formats have been developed
and predefined in the WIN-PAK system: 26 Bit
Wiegand, 32 Bit Northern, or 34 Bit Northern.

Formatting Wiegand Cards
Choose the Wiegand Format Type radio button if
your system connects to a Wiegand, or Wiegandcompatible reader. Most Proximity cards [and other
card types as well] and Biometrics readers fall into
the Wiegand category.
When Wiegand is selected as the Format Type, the
text fields used to program custom Wiegand cards
become active, as shown here:
Programming
369
1
Indicate the number of bits on the card [# of
bits on card field].
2
Enter the Bits to sum for even parity (indicating an even number of ones in a block of binary
code), and the Bits to sum for odd parity.
Parity helps in determining if the numbers
coming into the reader are correctly formatted.
For example: with a 26-bit Wiegand, the even
parity start bit is 1, and the number of bits is 13.
The start bit for odd parity is 14, and the number
of bits is 13.
3
Site code bits typically start at 2 and contain 8
bits.
4
In a standard 26-bit Wiegand-formatted card, the
Cardholder ID bits begin at 10 and contain 25
bits.
5
Issue code bits are not used with standard a
26-bit Wiegand-formatted cards, however some
card manufacturers, allow a two or three bit code
in addition to the site code.

WIN-PAK User Guide
Formatting ABA (American Banking Association)
Cards
Choose the ABA Format Type radio button if your
system connects to a Magnetic stripe reader. ABA
cards typically include magnetic stripes or barcodes.
ABA cards are formatted using digits. Each digit is
actually a group of five bits. Four of the bits are used
for the number, and the fifth is a parity bit for that
group of bits.
In addition to the bit groups making up the actual
card number, ABA formats contain a preamble made
up of zeros, a hex B used as a start sentinel, and hex
Ds used as field separators.
When ABA is selected as the Format Type, the text
fields used to program custom ABA cards become
active, as shown here:
1
Because the amount of data contained on an
ABA-formatted card can vary, it is necessary to

Card Format Flags & Definitions
Data1/data0, Wiegand Pulses
This flag indicates how Wiegand lines will be read (if a
Wiegand-style card format is used).
Trim zero bits
Used to trim off leading zeros if desired. You may want to
use when reading ABA magnetic formats.
Format to nibble array
Takes a mag card and formats it to an array of BCD and
Hex (start and end characters). You may want to use this
card format flag when reading ABA mag format cards.
Allow bi-dir mag decode
Allows the data to be interpreted bi-directionally. You may
want to set this flag when reading ABA mag format cards
(dependent on the reader manufacturer).
Allow NCI mag decode
Allows NCI cards to be read by certain magnetic stripe
readers. The reader makes an interpretation of the data
and sends out numbers in a Wiegand format. Do not
enable this flag when using NR-1.
If anything other than Custom is selected as the
Reader Type, the Card Format Flags are grayed out.

8
Anti-Passback discourages users from entering
with others, without using their own cards. Cards
must be used at a designated In reader, then at a
designated Out reader before the card can be
read in again. Consult your local fire regulations
before using Anti-Passback.
9
Direction allows you to specify if the reader is in
or out. [Defaults to None.]
10 The Processing Mode indicates whether the
reader, the card, or the panel will remember the
sequencing, and whether or not access is granted
if a violation occurs. The default is None.
Following is a list of Processing Modes and results.
Processing Mode and Results
None
No Anti-Passback in effect.
Soft
Upon an Anti-Passback violation, the card is still granted
access and reports [in the Alarm View] either:
Anti-Passback violation, door used -or- Anti-Passback
violation, door not used. Example: A card is swiped for
the first time at an Anti-Passback reader. The card is
valid and is granted access [Alarm View shows "Valid
card, door used"0]. If the cardholder decides not to open
the door and go through, the second time their card is
swiped at the same Anti-Passback reader, the card is
again granted access, but this time Alarm View shows
"Anti-Passback violation, door used."
384
WIN-PAK User Guide
Hard
Upon an Anti-Passback violation, the card is not granted
access and Alarm View reports, "Anti-Passback violation,
door not used." Example: A card is swiped for the first
time at an Anti-Passback reader. The card is valid and is
granted access (Alarm View shows "Valid card, door
used"). If the cardholder decides not to open the door and
go through, the second time their card is swiped at the
same Anti-Passback reader, the card is denied access,
and Alarm View shows "Anti-Passback violation, door not
used."
Reader Based Time APB (Anti-Passback)
If this option is enabled, a card cannot be swiped twice at
the same Anti-Passback reader without waiting the
amount of time selected for the delay. Example: Reader 1
is designated as an In reader. The processing mode is
set to Reader Based Timed APB, and the delay is set to
30 seconds. A card is swiped for the first time at Reader
1. The card is valid and is granted access. If the
cardholder swipes the same card a second time at
Reader 1, before the 30 second delay has expired, the
card will not grant access and will be reported as an "AntiPassback violation, door not used," in Alarm View.
Card Based Time APB
If this option is enabled, a card cannot be swiped twice
anywhere in the system within the amount of time
selected for the delay. Example: Reader 1 is designated
as the In reader. The processing mode is set to Card
Based Timed APB, and the delay is set to 30 seconds. A
card is swiped at Reader 1. If the card is swiped at any
reader on the system before the 30-second delay is
reached, Alarm View reports an Anti-Passback violation.
Panel Based Time APB
If this option is enabled, a card cannot be swiped twice at
the same panel within the amount of time selected for the
delay. Example: Reader 1 is designated as the In reader.
The processing mode is set to Panel Based Timed APB,
and the delay is set to 30 seconds. A card is swiped at
Reader 1. If the card is swiped at any reader on this
panel before the 30-second delay is reached, Alarm View
reports an Anti-Passback violation.

11 The Delay field is only active if one of the
Timed options is selected as the Processing
Mode. The default for Reader, Card, or Panel
Based Timed APB is zero seconds. This time can
be set from zero to 32,767 seconds.
12 The Card Formats available are dependent upon
which cards were configured for the Intelligent
Controller [on the Card Format tabs]. Up to eight
card formats can be selected for each reader.
13 Control Flags are special options that can be set
for the reader, and include:
Control Flags and Results
Set to deny a duress request
Works in a card and PIN mode only. Unless this option is
selected, duress is always enabled. Notify the monitoring
station you are under duress. Always one number higher

Log all access requests as used
If selected, logs all card reads as "door used," without
actually determining if the door is used. If unchecked,
logs all card reads, but waits until the door times out, or
the door is opened, to report. Deselect this option when
using anti-passback.
Do not pulse the door strike on rex
Door strike does not pulse upon free egress, however door
contact still gets shunted.

3
The Held Open Time is the amount of time that
can elapse after the door is opened [or the REX
is tripped], before the door is reported as ajar.
This field defaults to 16 seconds.
The held-open timer starts under two conditions:
Whenever the door opens [for any reason] a door
ajar/held open alarm is generated, even after a
"forced open" condition.
After a new door cycle [valid access granted or
valid egress attempted] if the door is open, the
held-open timer restarts. If the door is still open
after the held open time is up, a door ajar alarm
is generated in the Alarm and Event views.
394
WIN-PAK User Guide
4
Pre Alarm Time is the amount of time that can
elapse after the door is opened, before a warning
[typically a beeping sound] indicates that the
alarm will be activated.
Using Held Open Time and Pre Alarm Time
Consider a door with a Held Open Time set at 30
seconds and a Pre Alarm Time also set at 30
seconds. As soon as the door opens, a beeping sound
is emitted (the Pre Alarm) indicating that an alarm is
imminent. At the end of the 30 second Held Open
Time, the alarm is activated.
Standard Reader Types
WIN-PAK is delivered with four standard reader types:
• Std NCI 5-Wire
• Std HID
• Std Motorola
• Std Mercury
Select any of these reader types to examine its
predefined configuration.
SIO Board Configuration – Inputs
Use the Inputs tab on the SIO Board Configuration
window (next illustration) to set up the input points
for the Reader Module.
Panel input points are configured using the Inputs
tab which lists all the input points available on the
current panel. Inputs are status points in the system
doors, windows, motion sensors, etc. Input points
can be linked to time zones, shunt time, as well as
interlocks.
Inputs that are added as ADVs are referred to as
monitor points within the system. Inputs that are
being used in conjunction with the door cannot be
added as ADVs.
Programming

The PRO-2200 Series Dual Reader Module has
eight input points, and all are displayed in the list
box at the top of the Inputs window (the PRO2200 Series Single Reader Module has two input
points). All the input points are shown as active
(with the check box selected), with No ADV.
Remember, any input point you intend to use as
a monitor point will require an ADV.
Input points are considered active if the wiring
and the devices are hooked up. Inputs are not
active if the device is not currently working.
396
WIN-PAK User Guide
NOTE: Input points 1 through 4 are reserved by WINPAK for use with door interlocks, and therefore cannot
be assigned an ADV.
2
Use the Time Zone dropdown list to attach a
time zone to an input point. For example, to
shunt [deactivate] an input point during a particular time zone, select that time zone from the
list. The Time Zone defaults to None.
3
When the input becomes active [alarm or trouble
condition], the Hold Time begins counting down.
If the input goes normal before the hold time
ends, the input will wait to report normal until
the hold time ends. If the input goes normal after
the hold time ends, the normal status is reported
immediately.
For example: with a hold time of seven seconds,
when the input is in alarm, the hold timer starts
counting down. If the point goes normal after
three seconds, the normal waits another four
seconds before reporting. If the point goes
normal after ten seconds, the input reports as
normal immediately.
Hold Time defaults to zero seconds, but can be
set from zero to fifteen seconds.
4
Debounce Cycles set the amount of time [in
1/60th of a second cycles] that an input must be
in a changed state before that change is reported.
In other words, a debounce cycle instructs the
system to ignore an alarm for a specific period of
time.
For example: an input point with a debounce
time of "4" (the default) must be in an alarm
state for four cycles before it is reported as an
alarm. The same is true when it returns to
normal condition. The input point would not
report as normal until it is in the normal state for
the debounce period.
Programming
397
Debounce time can be set in the range of 2/60th
- 15/60th of a second.
5
Shunt Time only comes into play when an event
[an interlock, or manual shunt] is applied to the
input point. Enter a value in the Shunt Time
field to set the amount of time that the input
point is deactivated (shunted) when triggered.
This can be set in seconds, minutes, or hours
using the selection buttons directly above the
option.
The field defaults to zero, but can be set from 0
to 63 seconds, 0 to 63 minutes, 0 to 63 hours.
Shunt Time cannot be applied to door status or
door inputs.
6
The Mode list offers three choices: Normal,
Latching, and Non-Latching. Latching is the
manual use of electronic access control credentials in which one credential read causes a lock to
unlock and a second read locks the lock. The
lock changes state only after a credential is read.
Following is a description of each Mode.
Mode Descriptions
Normal
The input acts normally, reporting alarms, normals, and troubles.
Non-Latching
Entry: A door is set up as an input point, with an entry delay of 10 seconds. If the door
remains open more than 10 seconds, it is reported.
Exit: The exit delay is the amount of time a contact can be unshunted (unmasked) before
being reported. (Similar to a pulse time).
Latching
Entry: If a door [set up as an input point, with an entry delay of 10 seconds] is opened,
the user has 10 seconds to shunt the point, otherwise it will report as an alarm. Even if the
point returns to normal before the entry delay time runs out, if the point has not been
shunted (masked), it will report as an alarm.
Exit: The exit delay is the amount of time a contact can be unshunted (unmasked)before
being reported. (Similar to a pulse time).
398
WIN-PAK User Guide
7
The Entry Delay is the amount of time an input
point can remain open before an alarm is activated. This field defaults to zero seconds, but
can be set up to 255 seconds.
8
Exit Delay is the amount of time a point can be
unshunted [unmasked] before being reported as
an alarm. This field defaults to zero seconds, but
can be set up to 255 seconds.
NOTE: The Entry and Exit Delay fields are not
available if the Mode selected is Normal.
9
The Input Circuit Type allows you to designate
whether a point is supervised or unsupervised.
The system needs to know when the input point
is in a normal condition and when it is in an
alarm condition.
Following is a definition of each Input Circuit Type.
Input Circuit Type Definitions
Normally Opened – No End of Line / Two-state circuit (Alarm or Normal)
Refers to contact points that do not touch when a device is in its normal position. A
normally open device, such as most REX switches, complete the circuit when pushed.
Normally Closed – No End of Line / Two-state circuit (Alarm or Normal)
Refers to contact points that always touch when a device is in its normal position. A
normally closed device, such as most door contacts, complete a circuit when they are in
their normal, at rest condition
STD – End of Line
Refers to a three-state circuit (Alarm, Normal, or Trouble)
10 Transaction Mask allows for masking the log of
transaction information related to input points.
The Transaction Mask field defaults to "Log all
Transactions," indicating that all input points will
be monitored and all information on them logged
to the PC.

Interlocking
Interlocking allows you to interlock the selected
input point with another SIO board, reader, or
input/output point within the Intelligent Controller
[so long as an ADV has been created for the board,
reader, or point].
When an input point is interlocked to an output
point, and there is a change of status in the input
point, the system performs the operation specified.
For example:
Component A is Input 5 [a motion detector]
Component B is Output 3 [a siren]
Action 1 - Energize
Action 2 - De-energize
When the motion detector is triggered, Input 5 goes
into an active state and Output 3 energizes,
sounding the alarm.
Programming
401
When Input 5 returns to normal state, Output 3 deenergizes, turning off the siren.
To interlock a particular input point, select the input
or output point to link to, and what action to
perform on alarm and normal conditions.

When the input becomes active [alarm or trouble
condition], the Hold Time begins counting down.
If the input goes normal before the hold time
ends, the input will wait to report normal until
the hold time ends. If the input goes normal after
the hold time ends, the normal status is reported
immediately.
For example: with a hold time of seven seconds,
when the input is in alarm, the hold timer starts
counting down. If the point goes normal after
three seconds, the normal waits another four
seconds before reporting. If the point goes
normal after ten seconds, the input reports as
normal immediately.
Hold Time defaults to zero seconds, but can be
set from zero to fifteen seconds.
4
Debounce Cycles set the amount of time [in
seconds] that an input must be in a changed state
before that change is reported. In other words, a
debounce cycle instructs the system to ignore an
alarm for a specific period of time.
For example: an input point with a debounce
time of "4" (the default) must be in an alarm
state for four cycles before it is reported as an
alarm. The same is true when it returns to
normal condition. The input point would not
report as normal until it is in the normal state for
the debounce period.
Debounce time can be set in the range of 0 to
255 seconds.

The Mode list offers three choices: Normal,
Latching, and Non-Latching. Latching is the

Following are descriptions of each Mode.
Mode Descriptions
Normal
The input acts normally, reporting alarms, normals, and troubles.
Non-Latching
Entry: A door is set up as an input point, with an entry delay of 10 seconds. If the door
remains open more than 10 seconds, it is reported.
Exit: The exit delay is the amount of time a contact can be unshunted (unmasked) before
being reported. (Similar to a pulse time).
Latching
Entry: If a door [set up as an input point, with an entry delay of 10 seconds] is opened,
the user has 10 seconds to shunt the point, otherwise it will report as an alarm. Even if the
point returns to normal before the entry delay time runs out, if the point has not been
shunted (masked), it will report as an alarm.
Exit: The exit delay is the amount of time a contact can be unshunted [unmasked] before
being reported. (Similar to a pulse time.)
7
The Entry Delay is the amount of time an input
point can remain open before an alarm is activated. This field defaults to zero seconds, but
can be set up to 255 seconds.
8
Exit Delay is the amount of time a point can be
unshunted (unmasked) before being reported as
an alarm. This field defaults to zero seconds, but

The Input Circuit Type allows you to designate
whether a point is supervised or unsupervised.
The system needs to know when the input point
is in a normal condition and when it is in an
alarm condition.
Following is a list of Input Circuit Types and definitions of each.
Input Circuit Type Definitions
Normally Opened – No End of Line / Two-state circuit (Alarm or Normal)
Refers to contact points that do not touch when a device is in its normal position. A
normally open device, such as most REX switches, complete the circuit when pushed.
Normally Closed – No End of Line / Two-state circuit (Alarm or Normal)
Refers to contact points that always touch when a device is in its normal position. A
normally closed device, such as most door contacts, complete a circuit when they are in
their normal, at rest condition
STD – End of Line
Refers to a three-state circuit (Alarm, Normal, or Trouble)
10 Transaction Mask allows for masking the log of
transaction information related to input points.

[control] points that you will be using. Outputs that
are used in conjunction with the door cannot be
added as ADVs.
5 Click the Add button in the ADV area of the
window to open the Abstract Device Record Control Point window (below).
NOTE: Within the Abstract Device Records, output
points are considered "Control Points." Input points
are considered "Monitor Points," and Readers are
considered "Entrances."

Triggers and Procedures
438
WIN-PAK User Guide
The ability to view and configure Triggers and
Procedures is an exclusive feature of the PRO-2200
Intelligent Controller.
In response to a panel event [trigger], you can define
a set of actions you want the panel to carry out. The
occurrence of the event triggers the execution of the
procedure.
Triggers and procedures are used to define interlocks
[an action on a point triggered by an action on a
different point]. Assigning points and readers to time
zones is also be done via triggers and procedures on
the PRO-2200 Intelligent Controller.
User triggers are those defined for site-specific
events and actions. System triggers are those created
when points are assigned to interlock definitions.
User triggers can be added, edited, or deleted at any
time from the Triggers and Procedures window of
the PRO-2200 Configuration dialogs. System triggers
can be viewed, but not edited from the Triggers and
Procedures window.
When the Triggers and Procedures window is
displayed, system triggers and procedures already
configured for the panel are shown.
Analyzing the system triggers and procedures can
provide great insight into the manner in which
interlocks work in your access control system.
System Triggers and Procedures
System triggers and procedures are created as a result
of an interlock being defined on one of the PRO2200 Configuration SIO Board Inputs or Outputs
tabs. Once an action is assigned to an interlock
point, two system triggers and procedures are created
to correspond to the interlock. One trigger and
procedure set deals with the On action, and one
deals with the Off action.
Programming
439
Adding a New Procedure
Procedures are assigned to triggers, and therefore,
must be defined first. Use the Procedure Definition
dialogs to build a script of actions that will take
place based upon the event [trigger] to which the
procedure is linked.
Procedures are limited by the type of device or point
being defined.

Naming and Numbering Monitor Point and
Control Point ADVs
If more than one input or output point is configured
for an SIO Board, the input or output number
automatically increments, up to the limits of both
the board and the panel. For example: the second
monitor point ADV added to the first Reader
Module placed on a panel would be named "In 6."
Input points 1-4 are reserved by WIN-PAK for use
with doors. There are 8 input points available on a
Dual Reader Module, so the naming/number could
go up to "In 8".
If a second Dual Reader Module is added to an
Intelligent Controller, the first monitor point ADV
on the second board would be named "In 9", and so
on.
When a board is added, WIN-PAK knows that it
must take into account all the possible input and
output points contained in the boards already added
to the system, and begin naming and numbering
accordingly. In other words, you will never have
non-sequential numbering within a single board.

Initializing Panels
Programming information entered into the WINPAK System must be sent to the panels before it can
take effect. When panels are first added to the
system, they must be initialized so that the
information entered during panel configuration can
be sent to the panels.
Likewise, whenever there is a change in the panel
configuration, the new information must be sent to
the panels.
The only exceptions to this are changes to individual
cards and card holders, which are automatically sent
to the panels.
Panels are initialized from the Floor Plan view [the
background] or from the Control Map.
NOTE: Panel Configuration Options reset all of your
panel’s programming. It is recommended that you select

Defining Access, Tracking & Control
Areas
Access Areas
Access Areas are defined by adding entrances (doors
and readers from the control panels) to a tree
structure. An ADV must be defined for an entrance
before it is available for selection. Access Areas list
entrances and indicate where they are located. The
Access Areas are then used to define Access Levels.
Access Levels are added to cards as they are entered
into the Card database. A card must have an Access
Level, which allows the card holder entry to selected
areas during assigned times and restricts access to all
other areas and to unassigned times.
An Access Level is defined by choosing selected
entrances in an Access Area and a selected time zone
during which access is allowed.
For example, to define an Executive Access Level
having access to all doors, 24 hours a day, you would
select all entrances in the Access Areas, assign
access rights and a 24-hour, 7-day time zone. For a
Visitor Access Level, you might select the main door
between 8:00 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday.
Defining Access Areas
Access Areas provide a logical map of your access
control system, showing entrances (doors), and their
relative location within the system.
Once panels and readers have been defined and
added to the Device Map, you can define Access
Areas by creating branches on a tree structure and
adding entrances to those branches. Branches can
also have sub-branches.
Access Areas are ultimately used to define Access
Levels.

Tracking and Mustering Areas
Tracking and Muster reporting allows card holders to
be located in the event of an emergency. Tracking
and muster areas are defined by mapping Tracking
Areas and Muster Readers on a tree structure.
People are required to use readers when entering or
leaving tracking areas. In an emergency, a muster is
declared, and people go to the muster readers and
present their cards.
Tracking Areas
Tracking Areas are sections of a facility defined by
selecting designated readers. Card reads within this
area are recorded and can be seen in the Muster view.
In case of an emergency, card holders are instructed
to go to a muster area and present their cards to a
muster reader. The operator can then tell if everyone
has exited the tracking areas, and if not, where they last
presented their card.
Programming
461
In the following diagram, A, B, C, and D are
Tracking Areas.
If each area is distinct and not nested (explained
later), the area is defined by the readers that allow
access to the area.
• Readers 1, 4, and 9 allow access to Tracking Area
A
• Readers 3 and 6 allow access to Tracking Area B
• Reader 5 allows access to Tracking Area C
• Reader 8 allows access to Tracking Area D
The first time a person presents a card at one of
these readers, the read event is recorded and may be
observed in the Muster view.
Each time that card is presented at one of the readers
in that same area, the previous record for the card is
replaced by the new record.
When a person moves to a different area, his card
reads are removed from the former area and now
appear in the new area. The screen displays the most
recent records of card reads from individual areas, or
from all areas at one time.
462
WIN-PAK User Guide
The operator can select which areas to view by
selecting the appropriate branch on the Tracking
Area tree. If the top level is selected, card reads from
all areas are displayed. Reports can also be generated
from the Tracking Areas.
When a card is presented at a muster reader, it is
removed from the tracking area and is listed in the
muster area. A report of these card reads can be
printed.
Muster Areas
Like tracking areas, muster areas are also logical
areas, not defined by the hardwiring of the system.
[Muster readers are not used for controlling a door.]
Muster areas contain readers that are only used by
card holders if there is a call for muster (e.g. in the
event of a disaster).
Several different muster areas can be created.
The Muster View displays card read events. A report
can be run on cards presented in an individual
muster area or at all muster areas.
In normal conditions no transactions are recorded at
muster readers. They are only used if there is a muster
call, usually in an emergency.
Nesting Areas
The concept of nesting is not unique to the tracking
system, but does take on considerable significance
when planning for disaster management, and can
change the way tracking reports are generated.
When an area is nested in another area, its readers
are also part of that area. The general principle of
nesting is that readers used to enter an area [or move
about within the area] should be listed under the
tracking area in the Tracking Areas database.
Programming
463
For example, if a hospital building is designated as
tracking area H, the laboratory within the hospital
can be a tracking area labeled L which is nested
within H.
The two readers in the lab would define tracking area
L, but would also be part of the H tracking area.
Therefore, an employee who has entered the lab is
shown as being present in the hospital as well as
being present in the lab.
Where the laboratory area not nested, an employee
entering the lab would be shown as present in the
lab, but not present in the hospital.
To take another example, note the following
diagram.
• 1-9 are Tracking Readers
• A, B, C, D are Tracking Areas,
• M is the Muster Reader
• E is the Exit Reader
If we focus on the B and C areas shown above, we
can consider those areas in two ways.
464
WIN-PAK User Guide
Not Nested
If they are not nested, then Readers 3 and 6 define
Area B because they allow access to Area B. Reader 5
defines Area C.
Nested
If we consider these same areas to be nested, anyone
in Area C is ALSO in Area B. In which case, Readers
3, 5, and 6 define Area B and Reader 5 is also in Area
C. There can be many nesting levels. There could be
another room inside Area C, which would be nested
under both B and C.
The diagram has the following Tracking Area
definitions when nested:
Tracking Area A: [Readers 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9].
Presenting a card at any of these readers shows the
person in Tracking Area A. Readers 2 and 7 both
leave Tracking Area A.
Tracking Area B: [Readers 3, 5, 6]. Reader 4 leaves
Tracking Area B.
Tracking Area C: [Reader 5]. Reader 6 leaves
Tracking Area C.
Tracking Area D: [Reader 8]. Reader 9 leaves
Tracking Area D.
Reader E: [Exit Reader]. An Exit tracking area can
be defined, if desired. If left blank, all readers not
assigned a tracking area are considered exit readers.
Designate an exit reader, which card holders are
required to use on leaving the facility. When mapping
the tracking areas, this reader (or readers) defines the
exit area. Reader E causes the card-holder
information to be entered into the Exit tracking. This
information is not displayed.
Reader M: [Muster Reader]. If M readers are
defined as muster readers, a card read removes the
card holder from the tracking area and moves them
to the muster area.
Programming
465
Muster System Precautions
When designing a muster system for use with WINPAK it is important to keep the following
precautions in mind:
•
Use a separate dropline [communication port] to
isolate muster readers from tracking units.
An alternate/additional communication path
from the N-1000 to the computer can be
achieved by using the N485DRLA (Digital
Redundant Loop Adapter).
NOTE: Muster readers are not used for controlling a
door.
•
Run a special line for the muster units to provide
a unique data path, even if the wiring from the
main facility is damaged. Ideally, the tracking
units should also have a unique data path.
•
Use 485 communications with ACK-NAK
enabled. A battery backup power supply is
required for the 485-API-2 on any PW-2000-II
Control Panel.
•
Provide a UPS or other backup power source for
the WIN-PAK computer and any other associated communication devices.
•
Provide a safe location for the computer and
communication.
•
Keep the muster system on-line [not buffered] to
ensure timely and complete information.
•
Perform regular checks to insure that the muster
system is functioning properly.
•
Check that all panels are maintaining the correct
time and date. It is critical that the time and date
be correct on card reads at the muster readers. If
the time and/or date are earlier than that of
other reads in the system they will be ignored.
466
WIN-PAK User Guide
•
Program the Scheduler to update panel time and
date at least once a day.
•
Create a check list for muster procedures.
•
Hold regular drills to practice muster procedures.
•
Test the Muster Report printer.
At the Time of Muster
•
Verify that muster reads from the panel have the
correct time and date.
•
If the date and time are wrong, stop the presentation of cards, and send the time and date to the
panel.
•
Test the correction.
•
Repeat all card presentations. Multiple presentations of the same card at the Muster reader does
not adversely affect the result of the Muster as
the most recent time/date stamp is the one that
is displayed.
CAUTION: A cold restart of the access control panel sometimes
occurs if there is a serious power surge on the power or
communication lines. This can cause corruption of the
panel’s database and time functions. The PW-2000
panels address the time problem by generating a system
alarm 99 (Panel Database, System Alarms, Panel Reset
Alarm) when the panel experiences a cold restart.
WIN-PAK then sends the current Time and Date to the
panel within 60 seconds of receiving this alarm. The
default time and date after a cold restart is January 1st,
Monday at 12:00 a.m. This time stamp appears on
activities in the Event view and History report. Panel Time
is critical to the proper operation of the muster function as
the most recent event is used to determine the tracking/
muster status of a card holder. If a card is presented to
the Muster reader and the time and date stamp is earlier
than the stamp from another reader location, there will be
no change of status to the Muster (safe) location.
Programming
467
In the event that the card database is lost or corrupted
at the muster reader, WIN-PAK recognizes all readtypes [Not Found, Time Zone, Normal, Trace, PIN
Violation, and Expired] as valid muster reads, provided
that the time is later than the previous card read as
described above.
This function eliminates the need to reload cards or
to have host grant enabled to a muster panel during a
muster event. Only Valid and Trace card reads count
at a Tracking reader.
NOTE: It is recommendedthat the muster panel have the
host grant feature set to disabled to optimize system
communication in the event the panel would go through a
cold restart.

communication server, loops, panels, input and
output points, and groups to one another. In
addition, the Control Map provides another method
of controlling system devices.
Control areas should be created to provide a logical

Floor Plans
The Floor Plan database contains information on all
the floor plans that have been entered into the
system. Floor plans can be added, changed, or
deleted from the Floor Plan database.
The Floor Plan database is accessed via the Floor
Plan Definition option on the WIN-PAK
Configuration menu or by clicking the Floor Plan
toolbar button.
The Floor Plan database lists existing floor plans by
name and description.
Information in the Floor Plan database can be
searched and sorted by name and description.
The Add, Edit and Delete buttons allow you to
create new floor plans, edit existing ones, or remove
floor plan definitions from the system.

Floor Plan Definition
Designing a floor plan begins with a background.
This background is a static graphic image that can be
an actual floor plan drawing, a photo, or a simple
graph. Floor plan backgrounds are imported as
Windows metafile graphics (.wmf) that are scalable
so the floor plan view can be easily enlarged or
reduced without distortion. Floor plans can also be
created without a background graphic.
The next step in floor plan definition is to add an ADV
for each device you want to monitor or control from the
floor plan. You can choose from any of the ADVs that
have been defined. Different objects (e.g. doors, panels,
C-100 loops) are available in the Floorplan Toolbox,
representing the different types of ADVs.
Links to other floor plans, or to an Alarm or Event
view, can also be added. In addition, a text block can
be added to the floor plan. For example, if you want
to create a legend explaining the color codes of the
ADVs or give special instructions for the operator
viewing a particular floor plan; just select the text
object from the toolbox, drag it onto the background,
and type in the text.
Once an object has been dragged from the toolbox
onto the floor plan, it has a right-click menu that
allows you to set its properties, copy it, or delete it.
NOTE: A Floor Plan object must be selected (left-click)
before its properties can be changed. Be sure you have
selected the correct object (there is a visible box around
the selected object) before attempting to set its properties.

Guard Tours
A Guard Tour is a defined series of check points that
a guard must activate within a given amount of time.
Usually the check point is a reader where a card is
presented, but it can also be input points attached to
other devices, such as an egress button. The check
points can be sequenced [they must be activated in a
specified order] or they can be unsequenced [they
can be activated in any order].
The tour definition sets the amount of time the guard
has to get from one check point to the next. Alarms
can be defined and priorities set for early arrival, late
arrival, unsequenced, or missed check points. A grace
period can be defined for each check point, allowing a
certain number of minutes early or late to be accepted
as a timely check-in.
Guard Tour Database
Guard tour definitions are stored in the Guard Tour
database. The list of tours can be searched and
sorted and reports can be generated. Details of a
selected tour can be viewed by selecting the Detail
View check box. Tours are added and edited in the

In this case an invalid card can activate a check
point without unlocking the door. In the Valid
Only column enter the type of card read required for the check point:
Y - for valid cards only
N - for any card (valid or invalid) will work
NOTE: Multiple Guard Tours can be run at the same
time. If you plan to run tours concurrently, do not use
the same unsequenced check points in both tours, as
doing so will make it difficult to tell which guard is
validating the point.
Use the Visible check box and Update button

Check Point Alarms
Sequenced check points on a guard tour generate
alarms for four states: Early Arrival, Late Arrival,
Missed, and Out of Sequence. Unsequenced check
points generate alarms for one state only: Checked.
The priorities and dependent actions for these alarms
are set in an action group which can be supplied to
multiple check points. If the action group is changed,
the settings for all Guard Tour Check Points
associated with it are changed as well.
Action groups can be edited from the Guard Tour

NOTE: When a panel is buffered, transactions are stored
in the panel RAM memory. When a panel is unbuffered, it
transmits stored information to a computer, then continues to transmit ongoing access transactions to that
computer. Transactions are not stored in the panel RAM.
A buffer command can be either hard or soft. Normally,
when an unbuffered panel receives a buffer command, it
switches to the buffered mode. When the buffered panel
receives an unbuffer command, it switches back.
However, if a panel receives multiple soft buffer or unbuffer
commands, it does not switch modes until it receives the
same number of buffer or unbuffer commands.
However, a hard buffer or unbuffer command overrides any
number of soft commands. When a panel receives a hard
buffer or unbuffer command it switches state, regardless
of how many soft buffer or unbuffer commands it has
received.

Badge Layouts Database
The WIN-PAK integrated badging utility allows you
to design and print badges from within the system
itself. Video images and signatures can be imported
or [with the appropriate hardware] captured and
saved for printing badges or for viewing video images
in AutoCard Lookup when used at selected readers.
Badge layouts [or designs] are templates that define
the size and properties of a badge, as well as the
placement of elements on the badge. Badge
templates are then associated with cards.
When a card is issued to a card holder, his or her
information is automatically merged with the badge
template, creating an individual card.
Badges can be printed on Technology or nonTechnology cards. Most any Windows-compatible
printer, ink jet, laser, or PVC card printer can be used
to print badges. Special PVC card printers allow twosided printing and magnetic stripe encoding.
The Badge Layout utility can also be applied in
Human Resources applications providing photos and
other Card Holder information.
The Badge Layouts database contains information
on various badge layouts and designs in your WINPAK System. The Badge database also provides
access to the Badge Layout Utility which is used to
create and edit badges.
NOTE: The Badge Layouts database contains badge
templates [or designs] not access cards.

Creating Badges
The full-featured WIN-PAK badge layout utility,
allows you to create badge designs with shaded or
graphic backgrounds, logos, text, and barcodes, and
the ability to leave placeholders for card holder
photos and signatures.
The graphical design tools employed in the Badge
Definition window make setting up and laying out
badge designs quite simple.
Badge layout begins with you naming and describing
the layout, and defining the size and orientation of
your badge.
Once the basic badge design has been defined, items
are added to the layout and can be placed, moved,
resized, and modified in a number of ways.
Whether you are creating a new badge from scratch
[by clicking the Add button on the main Badge
Layouts database window], or are working from a
badge layout copy, you will use the Badge Definition
window as your desktop while designing the badge.

Grids are evenly spaced points on the badge layout
area that assist in sizing and aligning items. The grid
can be used as a visual aid in placing items, or you
can have items snap to the grid for more precise
object alignment.
Use the Grid Settings dialog to select the spacing of
your grid.
Select Snap to Grid if you want items to snap to the
grid when they are moved. With Snap to Grid
selected, when an item is moved close to a grid
mark, it is pulled to it as if to a magnet.
Select Show Grid if you want the grid marks visible
in the layout area.
Blockouts
Blockouts provide a non-printing area for badges.
The blockout keeps a defined area of the badge free
of printing which is useful in preventing printing
over a magnetic stripe or hole punch area in the card.
Unlike other badge objects, the blockout has no
properties. Within the item layering order, the
blockout always remains on top.
522
WIN-PAK User Guide
NOTE: While blockout is generally effective in preventing
overprinting of the magstripe area, some card printers will
print resin black over the blockout area. Therefore, avoid
placing any black type over the magstripe area.

Badge Object Properties
The basic Properties dialog available from the Badge
Definition right-click menu includes six tabs allowing
for settings that apply to the badge layout, including
Badge, Colors, Positioning, and Track 1, Track 2,
Track 3.
The Badge tab allows you to import or capture
background images. The Badge tab is also used to
indicate how the image will fit into the available
space.
Use the Colors tab to select the background color for
the badge.
The Positioning tab allows you to change the size
and orientation of the badge
Track 1, Track 2, and Track 3 tabs are used for
magnetic stripe encoding.
Badge Tab
The Badge Layout Utility can set a colored or
graphic background for the entire printable area of
the badge. Other items are then placed on this
background. The outline in the Badge Definition
window (next illustration) shows the printable area.
526
WIN-PAK User Guide
There are three ways to provide a background for a
badge: select a single color for the background,
capture an image for the background, or import a
graphic that can be added to the Background Image
list.
Use the Badge tab to import background images, as
well as to determine how the program will fit the
image to the available space.
NOTE: If no badge object is selected when the dialog is
opened, the settings apply to the entire badge. If a shape,
bitmap, or other object is selected, a different Object
Properties dialog appears, and the settings apply to the
selected object.
Background Images can be imported into the WINPAK database from any directory. Once added to the
WIN-PAK database, background-image files are
available to any workstation.
Scanned images, photos taken with a digital camera,
and artwork created in a drawing or paint program
can all be incorporated into your badge design.
However, they do need to be saved in one of the
following supported file types: .bmp, .jpg, .pcx, and
.tga.
Badging
527
The Stretch Width, Stretch Height, and Keep Aspect
Ratio options allow graphics to fill placeholders that
are not exactly the same size as the graphic. The
stretch options make the graphic fill the space as you
have defined it. If the image is a different shape than
the space, it will be distorted. If you also select Keep
Aspect Ratio, the graphic will be as large as possible,
without distortion.
For example, if you place a square photo placeholder
in the badge design, then place a tall rectangular
photo in the placeholder, with the Keep Aspect
Ratio option selected, the photo will be as tall as the
placeholder, but will leave a margin on the sides
through which the placeholder background color will
show. To keep the margin from showing through,
select the placeholder, then open the Colors tab and
select Transparent Background.
Options on the Badge Tab
Background Image: Select a graphic file from this
list to use as a background.
Stretch Width: Stretches the graphic to fill the

Importing Graphics for Backgrounds
Importing existing bitmap graphics allows an infinite
number of possibilities for background images. For
example, you can scan a logo or photograph, take
photos with a digital camera, or use a graphic design
software program to create artwork.
NOTE: When creating your background file, remember,
the file must be saved as a Windows Bitmap (.bmp), JPG
(.jpg), Targa (.tga) or PCX (.pcx) file. For best results, the
file should be at least to 300ppi (pixels per inch).
Keep in mind the orientation and size of the badge,
as well as the placement of photos, barcodes, and
text so important parts of your background are not
obscured.
Create your background image to be as close in size
as possible to the printable area of your badge.
Keeping the sizes the same will avoid distortion or
loss of image quality caused by resizing or stretching
the image to fill the badge.
To Import a Background Graphic:
1
Right-click in the badge background area of the
Badge Definition window and select Properties.
Open the Badge tab of the Badge Object
Properties window.
2
Click the Import button. The familiar Open
dialog is displayed, allowing you to navigate to

of flash, distance from the subject, and other lighting
being used.
Brightness: Lightens or darkens the entire tonal
range of the image to be captured.
Contrast: Expands or contracts the entire tonal
range of the image to be captured.
Photo Settings
Photo settings are applied to the video image after it
is captured.
Brightness: Lightens or darkens the entire tonal
range of the captured image.
Compress: The captured image is saved as a .jpg file
which uses compression technology to decrease the
file size. If desired, use the slider to adjust the
compression of the saved image. The lower the
number, the greater the compression.However,
images lose quality as they are compressed, so avoid
over-compressing. A setting of 100 applies the least
amount of compression and provides the best image
quality. A setting of 30 applies the most
compression, but provides lower image quality.

all printers, so it is recommended that you use a
light colored or white background.
Creating Custom Colors
If the preset colors on the color palette don't meet
your specifications for a background, object, or text
color, you can create a custom color.
Click the Define Custom Colors button at the
bottom of the Color window to display the custom
color selector.
The color selector describes colors in two common
color models: HSL (hue, saturation, luminosity) and
RGB (red, green, blue). RGB corresponds to PMS
#/% assignment.
Badging
539
A third common color model is CYMK (cyan,
magenta, yellow, and black), based on the use of four
colors of ink to approximate a full spectrum of
colors. Many badge printers use the CMYK color
model and, therefore, will give only an approximate
match for the colors displayed on the screen.
Hue, Saturation and Luminosity
The HSL color model is based on how colors are
viewed by the human eye. Colors are described by
three basic characteristics.
•
Hue is the wave length of light reflected by [or
transmitted through] an object. It is the characteristic commonly called color, and identified by
color names such as yellow, green, or orange.
Hue values range from 0 [red] through 239
[running through the spectrum and returning to
red].
•
Saturation is the strength of the color. It indicates the amount of gray in the color. Saturation
values range from 0 [gray with no trace of color]
through 240 [fully saturated color with no gray].
•
Luminosity is the relative brightness or darkness
of the color. Luminosity values range from 0
[black] through 240 [white] with the untinted
color at about 120.
Red Green Blue
The RGB model is based on the representation of
the visible spectrum by mixing red, green, and blue
light. Computer monitors are based on this model,
creating colors by emitting light through red, green,
and blue phosphors.
The RGB model assigns a value for each pixel
ranging from 0 [black] to 255 [white] for each color
component. For example, the red on the Basic color
palette has a Red value of 255, a Green value of 0
and a Blue value of 6.
540
WIN-PAK User Guide
Color Solid
The color swatch shows the color as it appears on
the monitor and gives an approximation of how the
color appears when printed. Because monitors can
only show a certain number of colors at a time, the
colors may be dithered. This dithering appears on the
monitor only. The color prints as a solid.
The Solid swatch shows the closest solid color your
monitor can display with its current settings. If your
monitor is set to display 256 colors, the closest
match is displayed. If your monitor can display more
colors, the Solid swatch will probably match the
Color swatch exactly.

Magnetic Stripe Encoding
Track 1, 2, and 3 tabs on the Badge Object
Properties window are used when magnetic stripe
data is defined for the badge.
NOTE: Some encoders and some cards do not support
Track 3. Check your printer and card supplier before using
this feature.
For each track, specify the magnetic stripe format:
IATA, ABA, or TTS. The industry standards for
track/format assignment are:
• Track 1 - IATA: The NR-2-WR and NR6-WR read ABA on Track 1.
• Track 2 - ABA: The NR-1-WR, NR-3WR, NR-5 and the NR-5-KP read ABA on
Track 2.
• Track 3 - TTS: The NR7 reads ABA on
Track 3.
Each track can have a number of data items. The
number of items is limited by the amount of data
that will fit on a given track. See your printer
documentation for the number of characters that can
be encoded using each format. Only certain ASCII
characters can be used, depending on the format
selected for that track.
IATA accepts the alphanumeric characters 0 – 9,
and A – Z, plus various punctuation characters
(ASCII 32 - 95). Lower case letters are forced to
uppercase as IATA doesn't understand lowercase. If
a field separator is required, it is designated by the ^
character.
ABA accepts only numeric characters 0–9 and
various punctuation characters (ASCII 48–63).
TTS accepts numeric characters 0–9, and various
punctuation characters (ASCII 32–95).
Badging
543
As an example, the maximum number of characters
that can be printed using the Datacard IC III printer
are listed in the following table:
Track
Track 1:
Type of Character
alphanumeric
Max. Char.

76 characters
210 bits/in.
Track 2:

Badge Objects: Photo Placeholders
A photo placeholder is used in a badge design where
you want a card holder photo to appear. When the
badge is assigned to a card and card holder, the
appropriate photo from the card holder database is
applied to the badge.
WIN-PAK allows up to 99 photos for each card
holder. These can be different pictures of the
employee, or pictures of the employee's automobile,
or equipment assigned to the card holder, such as a
laptop computer. A photo index number is used to
indicate which card holder photo should appear on
the badge.
Photo placeholders can be formatted in a number of
ways. The photo can be aligned horizontally and
vertically within the box and stretched or shrunk to
fill the space. It can also be rotated at set intervals.
Photos can be ghosted, that is faded or lightened, so
they look like a watermark. A ghosted photo is
harder to photocopy and may provide added security
against unauthorized reproduction of ID cards.

that were added when WIN-PAK was installed. This
application also allows the barcode to be rotated as
any other text box. Refer to "Creating a Text Box on
a Badge" and "Adding and Editing Text". Once
created, edit the font as indicated below.
In the example above C39HrP24DhTt represents
Code 39 with Human Readable text at a Point size
of 24 with Density set to High and font type which

Badge Objects: Signature Placeholders
Signature placeholders are used in badge design
where you want the card holder's signature to appear.
When the badge is assigned to a card and card holder
the appropriate signature from the card holder
database is applied to the badge.
A signature pad [Honeywell Access Systems PB-SIGCAP or PBSIGCAPLCD] can be connected to the
computer to capture signatures. The signatures are
saved in vector format. They can be placed on the
cards and proportion-ally stretched to fill the area
allotted for them. The signature background can also
be made transparent to be placed on top of any other
object on the badge.
WIN-PAK allows up to 99 signatures for each card
holder. A Signature Index number is used to
indicate which card holder signature should appear
on the card.
Signature placeholders can be formatted in a number
of ways. The signature can be aligned horizontally

Card Holders
Overview
Simply stated, within the WIN-PAK System, a card
is typically a combination of a card holder record
and a badge template.
The Card and Card Holder Databases work together
in WIN-PAK, the separation of cards and card
holders into two databases adds flexibility to the
system. A card holder can be issued multiple cards to
use as replacements for a card that is lost or stolen or
to use if cards of different technologies are needed
for different applications. A large number of cards

Cards
Cards are defined by the following properties:
• Card Number
• Access Level
• Status (Active, Inactive, Lost, Stolen, or
Trace)
Cards can be assigned activation and expiration
dates. Card records can be searched and sorted by
their properties. For example, cards can be searched
numerically [by card number], or an operator can
search for cards most recently expired [by expiration
date].
PINs (Personal Identification Numbers) can be
defined for cards.
Description can be provided while editing the card
details.
A card must have a valid access level in order to
have an active status. Cards can be added
individually or as a batch, sequentially numbered.
Once added, card properties can be edited, both
individually or in batches.
Cards do not have to be associated with card holders.
For example, you might want to have a number of
cards available for visitors, vendors, or temporary
employees. You do not have to assign them to an
individual card holder.
New cards can be added while adding card holders,
but new card holders cannot be added from the Card
database.
581
Card Holders
Card Holders
Card holders are the people to whom cards are issued.
All card holder information is contained in the Card
Holder database. The minimum card holder
information is first and last name. However, card
holder records can also include a variety of optional
information entered into user-defined note fields [up
to 40].
If a card holder has been assigned to a card, that
information is included in the card holder record as
well.
Card holder information can be searched and sorted
by first or last name, card number, or any of the 40
user-configured notes fields.
When card holders are entered into the database,
they can be issued an existing card or entered
without a card [and issued one later], or the Card
Database can be accessed in order to issue a new
card.
Card holder photos and signatures are also stored in
the Card Holder database and can be viewed from
the card holder record. Card holder photos and
signatures can be viewed, captured, or imported from
the Card Biometrics tab of the card holder record.

Card Holder Movement Between Accounts
Card Holders can be moved between accounts by
changing the Account selection. The user can select
the required account from Card Holder > Basic Info
Tab.
Once a Card Holder's Account is changed, the status
of the card associated with the card holder is made
"inactive" with Access level set to "None".
However, details like PIN, Issue, Activation Date,
Expiration Date, Print Status and Notefields are
retained even after card holder movement.
NOTE: The user need organize the Note Fields even
though the Note Fields are transferred in order to match
with the new account note field tabs.

583
Configuring Card Holder Elements
WIN-PAK uses the term card holder to indicate an
individual to whom a card (or multiple cards) is
issued.
Information in the Card Holder database is entered
in a series of up to 40 note fields which can be
organized on any number of tabs. These note fields
make up the card holder record, and can include
anything from organizational information to personal
information, even biometrics, as shown here.
The Note Field Template allows you to label and
define the note fields, while the Card Holder Tab
Layout provides the tools for creating and
configuring tabs.
584
WIN-PAK User Guide
The note fields and tabs should be set up before
information is entered into the Card Holder
database. However, note fields and tabs can be
edited after card holders are added to the system.
Working with Card Holder Note Fields
A note field definition is comprised of two parts:
•
The Name, which is the label that appears next
to the note field on the card holder tab.
•
A Template, which defines the type and number
of characters that can be entered into the note
field.
If the Template field is blank, the note field acts as a
regular text box. Entering special characters into the
template creates a mask which prompts the user to
enter a certain type of data and/or a certain number
of characters in the note field.
For example, a template for a Zip Code field might
have five numeric placeholders (#). A Business
Phone field can be configured with a combination of
numeric placeholders, spaces, and alpha characters
to accept the area code, phone number, and a four
digit extension.
See the "Note Field Mask Properties" section of this
chapter for a complete list of mask characters and
their values.
NOTE: The software monitoring data entry can tell the
difference between alphabetic and numeric characters, but
it cannot verify the accuracy of the information.
The Note Field Template database is opened by
selecting Note Field Template from the Card
Holder option on the Configuration menu.
Card Holders
585
The Note Field Template database window lists
notes by name, template, and tab [if one has been
defined for the note].

WIN-PAK User Guide
Adding Card Holder Note Fields
1
Click the Add button on the Note Field Template database window. The Note Field dialog is
displayed:
2
Enter a unique Name (with up to 30 characters)
for the note field.
3
Use the Template field to create a mask for the
note field, defining the type, number, and syntax
of the characters to be entered. When a template
is used with a dropdown list, a maximum of 255
characters can be entered into the field. A
maximum of 64 characters is allowed for each
defined choice in the dropdown list.
Refer to the "Note Field Mask Properties"
section (ahead in this chapter) for more information.
If the Template field is left blank, the note field
acts as a regular text box, accepting up to 64
characters.
4
Click OK when finished. You are returned to the
Note Field Template database window where the
new note field is now displayed in the list.

The Note Field window is displayed, allowing you
to make changes to the Name or Template fields.
Isolating and Deleting a Card Holder Note Field
Deleting a note field not assigned to a tab is simply a
matter of selecting it and clicking the Delete button
on the main Note Field Template database window.
However, since Note fields are used with cards and
card holders within the access control system,
deleting a note field, without first taking into
consideration where it is used, could leave the
system with undefined states of operation.
If you attempt to delete a note field that is currently
assigned to a card holder [and is in use] the following
warning prompt alerts you that you must remove the
field from the instances where it is in use before it
can be deleted.
The WIN-PAK Isolate function displays a list of
card holders who have data entered in the selected
note field. It also displays the tabs where the note
field appears. You can modify the usage of a note
field using the Isolate window functions.
After receiving the warning prompt (shown above),
return to the main Note Field Template database
window, highlight the note field in question, and
click the Isolate button. A list is produced (next
illustration) showing the Card Holders and Tabs
using the selected note.
588
WIN-PAK User Guide
The Isolate list allows you to make adjustments in
the card holder definitions, possibly removing the
need for this note.
Remove the data from the card holder listed in the
Static list. Then remove the note field from the tabs
where it is displayed.
When you return to the main Note Field Template
database window you can select the note and delete
it.
Note Field Mask Properties
Use mask properties to determine and direct the
input of information in note fields.
Card Holders
589
The Template field on the Note Field dialog is used
to enter mask characters. For example, in the
following illustration a mask is entered for a phone
number.
Entering mask characters in the Template field
requires the user to enter a like number of the same
character when filling in the note field while setting
up card holders.
Following are examples of standard input masks that
can be used.
Mask Descriptions
Null String (Default) - No mask. Functions as a
standard text box.
##-???-## - U.S. medium date (20-May-00)
##-##-## - U.S. short date (05-20-00)
##:## ?? - Medium time (05:36 AM)
##:## - Military time (17:23)
Mask Character Descriptions
# Digit placeholder: A digit must be entered
[0–9].
.
Decimal placeholder: The actual character
used is the one specified as the decimal placeholder in international settings. This character is
treated as a literal for masking purposes.
590
WIN-PAK User Guide
,
Thousands separator: The actual character
used is the one specified as the thousands separator in international settings. This character is
treated as a literal for masking purposes.
:
Time separator: The actual character used is
the one specified as the time separator in international settings. This character is treated as a
literal for masking purposes.
/ Date separator: The actual character used is the
one specified as the date separator in international settings. This character is treated as a
literal for masking purposes.
\ Literal character qualifier: Treat the next
character in the mask string as a literal. This
allows you to include the #, &, A, L, U and ?
characters in the mask. This character is treated
as a literal for masking purposes.
& Character placeholder: Valid values for this
placeholder are ANSI characters in the following
ranges: 32-126 and 128-255.
~ Drop-down list: Gives multiple choices from a
drop-down list. For example: ~brown ~blue ~
green ~hazel.
?
Letter placeholder: For example: a – z or A –
Z.
A Alphanumeric: Only alphanumeric data plus
spaces [0–9 and A–Z or a–z].
L Lower case: Accepts a–z or A–Z [plus spaces]
and forces to a–z.
U Upper case: Accepts a–z or A–Z [plus spaces]
and forces to A–Z.
Literal: All other symbols are displayed as
literals: as themselves.
Card Holders
591
If no mask characters are entered in the Template
field (i.e., the mask is an empty string) the note field
functions as a standard text box.
When an input mask is defined, underscores appear
beneath every placeholder in the note field. You can
only replace a placeholder with a character of the
type specified in the input mask.
If an invalid character is entered, the masked edit
control rejects the character and generates an error
message. The user cannot proceed to the next field
until the error is corrected.
NOTE: While the software can distinguish between
numeric and alphabetic characters for validation, it cannot
check for valid content, such as the correct month or time
of day.
Setting Up Card Holder Tabs
The Card Holder Tab Layout option allows you to use
different tabs to organize note fields for the Card
Holder database display. These tabs appear when a

information. Up to 99 photos can be recorded for
each card holder. These photos can include different
views of the same person, including front and side
views, a photo of the person's car, or equipment
issued to them, such as a laptop computer.
If a photo is included in a card holder's record, it

Compression: The captured image is saved as a .jpg
file which uses compression technology to decrease
the size of the file. If desired, use the slider to adjust
the compression of the saved image. The lower the
number, the greater the compression. Keep in mind
that images lose quality as they are compressed, so
avoid over-compressing. A setting of 100 applies the
least amount of compression and provides the best
image quality. A setting of 30 applies the most
compression, but produces a lower-quality image.

Access Levels
Access levels determine where and when a user's
card is valid in the system. An access level is made
up of a list of readers with time zones. Together
these elements define time periods during which the
listed readers will grant access at various entrances.
The ability to assign cards to a group of entrances
eliminates the need to program the card for every
reader. When a card is activated, it is assigned an
access level. Changing the access level assigned to a
card automatically changes when and where the card
holder has access.
Access Level Database
The Access Level database contains information on
existing access levels, which define the entrances a
card holder can use and when they have access to
those entrances.
Open the Access Level database from the Card

Working with Cards
The Card database contains information on all the
cards that have been entered in your WIN-PAK
System.
Cards can be entered into the database one at a time
or via the Bulk Card Add feature. Required
information when adding a card includes the card
number, its status, and access level. Additional
optional information includes activation and
expiration dates, action group assignment, PIN, and
custom access level.
Open the Card database from the main WIN-PAK
Card menu [or click the Card toolbar button].
The Card database list displays existing cards with
their associated number, access level, card and badge
print status [as well as the activation date and
expiration date if they've been assigned]. The Card
database list also shows the first and last name of
the card holder, for those cards that have been
assigned to a card holder.
625
Card Holders
The detail view of the Card database has two tabs:
Card Properties and Badge. When activated, card
information can be edited in the detail view.
The Badge tab allows a badge layout to be selected
for the front and back of the card. When card
holders are associated with the cards, their
information appears in the badge layout on the
Badge tab. The badge layout can be printed from the
Card database.
NOTE: Refer to the "Working with Database Windows"
section in the User Overview chapter of this manual for
details on working with the Search and Sort fields.

WIN-PAK User Guide
Card Activation and Expiration with Scheduler
When cards are added to the Card database, they can
be configured for an unlimited number of uses over
an indefinite period of time. However, you do have
the option of limiting card usage in two ways.
When a card is selected to be active in the Card
database, the information is automatically sent to the
panels. However, if you choose an activation date,
on that date the card information is sent to the
panels. The Scheduler should be set to periodically
send card information to the panels at least once a
day.
When a card Activation/Deactivation scheduled
event is preformed, cards with an activation date
prior to the event are sent to the panel. Cards with a
deactivation date prior to the event are deleted from
the panel and changed to an inactive status.
The activation and expiration dates can also be
changed by editing a card.
NOTE: Refer to the "Time Management" section of the
chapter 4 for more information on setting scheduled
events.
Adding, Editing, and Deleting Cards
Cards can be added and deleted individually, or in
batches. For information on adding or deleting cards
in batches see the "Bulk Card Add and Delete"

Bulk Card Add and Delete
Bulk Card Add can be used to get your system up

at one time provided all the cards have the same
access level and activation/expiration dates.
With Bulk Card Add, you can add and activate
hundreds of cards at one time. All the cards added in
a batch will have the same properties, but can be
edited later to suit the needs of individual card
holders.
In setting up your system, having several different
batches of cards can provide flexibility. For example:
a group of cards can be active immediately while
another group of cards can be activated by date.
Each group can be assigned its own access level or
they can be made available when you want to issue
them to individual card holders.
An error message is displayed if you attempt to add

Interface, you must create or import a file containing
the new language.
WIN-PAK is designed to work with U.S. English
operating systems. International operating systems
require a special version of WIN-PAK. Consult
Honeywell Access Sytstems regarding international
operating systems.
The following three steps should be followed when
using the WIN-PAK translation utility for North
America/English systems:
1
Create a language text file and add the new
language to the list of available languages.
2
Select the language to which you are going to
translate using the Select Language command.
3
Translate the menus, dialogs, and other text.
Once this process is completed, you can switch
languages by using the Select Language command.
You can also add a language selection to an Operator
definition, so that when a particular operator logs in,
the User Interface switches to the correct language for
that operator.

Estimating Report Size
The size of a report depends on the type of report
and the amount of filtering done to it. The number
of pages required for printing also depends on your
printer.
Before printing a report it may be helpful to know
how many pages it will require. When you click the
Estimate Pages button on the report's detail window
WIN-PAK scans the report and returns a page count
to you.
Exporting Reports
An export function (next illustration) allows the
report to be exported in a simple delimited format.
The delimiter provides a signal that the information
for a particular field is complete and signals that the
next string of information is regarded as a new field.
The delimiter can be specified as Tab, Semicolon,
Comma, Space or Other user definable. Tab is the
default delimiter. Care should be used when
specifying a delimiter other than Tab as characters
such as a Comma or Space could be used in the data
field, giving a misleading field separator.
NOTE: The Operator Actions Report has an export
function independent from the other reports. Refer to the
Operator Actions Report section for exporting an Operator
Actions report.

Name box displays the name as it will be written to
your file destination.
Previewing Reports
To view a report before printing it, click the Print
Preview button on the report's detail window. Use

When a new event is seen on the Alarm View, it
is given a sequence ID, and any changes that
occur relative to that first event, like Alarm,
Normal, Operator Note, Operator ACK, Operator Clear are tagged with the same sequence ID
until the event is cleared.
When a report is generated with Sort on Sequence ID, the ID number groups the events
together in chronological order. This makes it

Database Maintenance
Overview
Database maintenance provides tools for monitoring
the database and for removing unused information
from the database. While deleted records are no
longer available within the system, they have not
actually been removed from the hard disk. The
Remove Deleted Records utility is used to
permanently remove them, thus reducing the size of
your database.
Removing Deleted Database Records

Select the Database Maintenance option from
the WIN-PAK File menu.
The Database Maintenance dialog opens on your
desktop.

Click Today to select the current date, or select
a date from the calendar. Deleted records up to
today but not including today will be deleted.
5
Click Start. A prompt reminds you to make a
backup copy of the databases before deleting
records.
Click Yes to proceed with the deletion process.
Click No to stop the deletion.

727
Unwanted history files can also be removed from the
databases. This is generally done after you make a
backup copy of your database files. Use the Delete
History utility to delete history records prior to a
selected date.
Deleting History from Database
1
Select Database Maintenance from the WINPAK File menu. The Database Maintenance
dialog opens on your desktop.
2
Select the Delete History check box.

A status bar displays the progress of the deletion
process, including the name of the history
database as it is processed.
Removal of the deleted database records and
removal of unwanted history can be done separately
or at the same time. The date selection only applies
to history records.
Database Backup and Restore Utility
In the event of software or hardware problems, it is
always a good idea to have a recent copy of your
database files.
The WIN-PAK Backup and Restore utility is a
stand-alone application that allows the user [typically
a database administrator] to create and modify a
backup and restore plan.
Database copies made with the Backup and Restore
utility can be used to restore your database after a
failure has occurred.
The WIN-PAK Backup and Restore utility allows for
the creation of multiple scheduled backups, and for
the restoration of the WIN-PAK database, the
archive database, and a temporary database which
allows you to examine the restoration without
affecting the current WIN-PAK databases.
729
Database Maintenance
The WIN-PAK Backup and Restore Utility is
automatically installed when your WIN-PAK System
is installed. The utility is accessed from the WINPAK Program group on your Start menu or an icon
on your desktop. The WIN-PAK Backup and Restore
Utility is made up of three components: Backup,
Schedule and Restore.
The Backup and Restore utility will only backup the
WIN-PAK hardware and history database
information. Other data, such as badge images,
signatures, badge and floor plan graphics are not
backed up by this utility. This data is normally
found in the WINPAK PRO\DATABASE folder
with BadgeImage, FloorPlanImage and UserImage
subfolders. During the WIN-PAK installation,
prompts are provided to allow the installer to place
these subfolders at other locations in your system.
Therefore you may not find these subfolders in the
WINPAK PRO folder. Backup of these data folders
can be accom-plished using standard Windows
backup or copying utilities. Both should be done at
the same time to keep all information current.

WIN-PAK User Guide
NOTE: The WIN-PAK database contains the listing
displayed and file location as defined when the
backup was made. When the "View the list of backups made from this manual" is selected, it is expecting to find the files where it last placed them. If the
backup file is not found by the restore utility, it will
prompt you to browse the computer fo find it. The
backup file must be located on the same (physical)
computer that is performing the restore. Restoring
across a network is not supported. If the backup has
been moved to a different computer, it must be moved
to the computer performing the restore.
739
Database Maintenance

Use the Restore list to set the parameters for the
backup. Restoring the WIN-PAK Database
requires that the WIN-PAK database services be
turned off. The restoration process will not
proceed if the services are running. Restoring to
WIN-PAK Archive Database replaces the existing archive database and allows reports to be
generated for the archive.
Restoring to New Database allows advanced
users to view the database without adversely
affecting the current or backup database.
4
Click Restore to continue. When finished, click
Cancel or Exit.
NOTE: Scheduled backups run automatically as long
as the MSSQLServerAgent components are running.
By default these components are set to run when the
operating system starts.
5
To check if MSSQLServerAgent components are
running, double click on the icon in the tray on
the bottom of the Window.
6
From the Services box, select MSSQLServer.
740
WIN-PAK User Guide
The message on the bottom of the SQL Server
Service Manager windows will give you the
computer name followed by "MSSQLServerRunning". Select the SQLServerAgent. The
message on the bottom of the SQL Server
Service Manager windows will give you the
computer name followed by "SQLServerAgentRunning".
7
If MSSQLServerAgent components are not
running, click on the Start/Continue button.
Note:
If the database server is not stopped while SQL
maintenance plan is running, the SQL maintenance
plan will stop the database directly from SQL. When
this occurs, there will be a loss of history for the
time the service is stopped until ALL services are
restarted.
In order to see any history after this point, it is
necessary to stop all services including SQL, and
restart all the services as the PC is rebooted. The
history during the time the plan was run until the
services are restarted is permanently lost.
Alternatively, you can stop the maintenance plans, or
deselect the WIN-PAK database from the
maintenance plan list.
The WP/WPP services must be stopped before
running a maintenance plan. The best way to
accomplish this is to create a schedule in the
operating system and add a script to stop all WP/
WPP services.
It is up to the local IT administrator to create this
script as every system is different.
Scenario: Maintenance plan created by a DBA runs
on a schedule in SQL at 11pm.
741
Database Maintenance
Create a script to stop all WP/WPP/NS2 services.
Create a script to start all WP/WPP services.
Create a schedule in the scheduler of the OS that

Create a schedule in the scheduler of the OS that
will run the start script.
Time line:
10:58 - Script will stop all WP/WPP services based
on the OS Scheduler. (The GUI does not have to be
shut down)
11:00 - SQL maintenance plan runs
11:04 - Script will start all WP/WPP services based
on the OS Scheduler.
All panels will function as normal during this period,
as long as they are set to buffer and unbuffer based
on the communication server settings.
Note: Command files will not function when services are
stopped.

Database Limits and Capacities
Database Limits and Capacities monitors the
available space for the database [system
programming and history, excluding floor plans,
photo and badging images] and available hard drive
space. Each monitoring feature has two
programmable alarm thresholds. One is a warning
that action should be scheduled, the second is an
alarm that immediate action should be taken.
Only the WIN-PAK administrator has permissions to
change the threshold values of these alarms.
NOTE: The general recommendation is that the OS
(operating system) should have 1/3 free space of the hard
drive it is installed on. WIN-PAK database upgrades and
general database operations should have 2.5 times the
database size of hard drive freespace.
To program the Database Limits and Capacities,
click on File and select Database Limits/
Capacities. The Operator must have administrator
permissions.
Database Maintenance
743
The Database section provides current database size
information listed as Current Size and displays the
percentage of the database that is used. The MSDE
database engine allows for a maximum size of 2GB
(excluding floor plans, photo and badging images).
The Warning and Alarm thresholds, defined in MB
(megabytes), in additon to percentages are displayed.
The Database Disk Drive Free Space section reports
Current Free Space of the hard drive where the
database is located. In installations where the
database is located on a separate drive, it is
recommend that at least 2.5 times the maximum size
of the database be left as free space. If the database
is installed on the same drive as the OS, then 1/3
free space of the hard drive should be used. This
allows enough room for backups and archive actions
to occur.
Single Hard Drive Setup Considerations
You want to utilize the MSDE to its maximum
capacity on a single 10GB (10,000MB) hard drive.
The warning thresholds for a 10GB hard drive may
be nominally set as indicated below:
Database
Warning Threshold
1600M B
80% utilization
Alarm Threshold
1800M B
90% utilization
Database Disk Drive Free Space
Warning Threshold
4000M B
120% of recommended free space
Alarm Threshold
3333M B
100% of recommended free space
(1/3 of total hard drive space)
If it is desired to increase the amount of space for
other files and programs, it will be necessary to
reduce the amount of space used by MSDE
database. To achieve this, the warning thresholds of
MSDE database size can be set lower.
744
WIN-PAK User Guide
The warnings would then prompt the administrator
to take action on the database sooner.To increase the
amount of space for other files and programs by
1GB [on the same 10GB hard drive], set the warning
thresholds as indicated below:
Database
Warning Threshold
Alarm Threshold
750M B
1000M B
37.58% utilization
50% utilization
Database Disk Drive Free Space
Warning Threshold
4000M B
120% of recommended free space
Alarm Threshold
3333M B
100% of recommended free space
(1/3 of total hard drive space)
NOTE: While the warning thresholds can be set to any
values, the size of the MSDE database will continue to
grow to its 2GB limit, unless proper backup and data
deletion is performed to maintain or reduce the MSDE
database size.
Multiple Hard Drive Setup Considerations
Multiple hard drive setup follows the same basic
guide lines for single hard drive consdierations,
except that the WIN-PAK database is installed on a
separate hard drive [logical or physical]. Since WINPAK only monitors the database's hard drive and
free space, the partition or physical location of the
OS is not monitored.
In a multiple hard drive configuration, where the
database is located on a separate drive, it is
customary to also locate the photo ID images,
layouts and floor plan data on the database drive.
This provides additional protection against OS
crashes, where the OS's hard drive may need to be
reformatted before the OS is reinstalled.
Database Maintenance
745
A typical example: A single 9 GB hard drive is partitioned to a 2 GB C: and a 7 GB D: The C: partition
con-tains the OS and WIN-PAK program only. This
leaves about 1GB or 50% free space on the OS
partition. The 7 GB D: partition contains the WINPAK MSDE database, photo ID badge information,
including photos, signatures and layouts, and floor
plan information.
This example assumes a starting capacity of 7 GB,
minus 2 GB (full database), minus 3GB (MSDE
recommended free space) leaving 2 GB left for photo
ID and floor plans.
The warning thresholds for 7GB of partitioned hard
drive space may be nominally set as indicated below:
Database
Warning Threshold
1600M B
80% utilization
Alarm Threshold
1800M B
90% utilization
Database Disk Drive Free Space
Warning Threshold
3600M B
120% of recommended free space
Alarm Threshold
3000M B
100% of recommended free space for
MSDE
Assuming that a typical photo ID (depending on
compression settings) is approximately 100KB, this
configuration allows for 20,000 photo ID images
before the alarm threshold is presented.
