Introduction
HandKey II
The HandKey II is Recognition Systems’ fourth generation biometric access control
Hand Reader1. The Hand Reader records and stores the three-dimensional shape of the
human hand for comparison and identity verification. Upon verification, the Hand
Reader produces an output that can unlock a door, send card format data to an access
control panel, or communicate with a host computer. The Hand Reader also has
auxiliary inputs and outputs that can be used to control other systems such as CCTV
cameras and alarms.
Biometrics
Biometrics is a term describing the automatic measurement and comparison of human
characteristics. While its origins are ancient, the evolution of advanced scanning and
microprocessor technology brought biometrics into everyday life. Electronic hand
geometry technology first appeared in the 1970s. Recognition Systems Inc., founded
in 1986, built the first mass-produced hand geometry readers and made biometric
technology affordable for the commercial market. Today, Recognition Systems’
products are in use in every imaginable application from protecting cash vaults to
verifying parents in obstetric wards.
Principle of Operation
The Hand Reader uses low-level infrared light, optics, and a CCD (IC chip) camera to
capture a three-dimensional image of the hand. Using advanced microprocessor
technology, the Hand Reader converts the image to an electronic template. It stores the
template in a database with the user’s ID number.
To gain access, the user enters his or her ID number at the Hand Reader’s keypad or
uses an external card reader. The Hand Reader prompts the user to place his or her
hand on the reader’s platen2. The Hand Reader compares the hand on the platen with
the user’s unique template. If the images match, the Hand Reader unlocks the door or
sends the user’s ID number to a third-party access control panel for processing.
The HandKey II Reader
The Hand Reader is an intelligent access control system that can operate as a standalone unit, in a network with other Hand Readers, or in a network with a host
computer. Refer to Figure 1-1 when reviewing the information in this section.
1. For the sake of using a consistent name throughout the manual, the HandKey II is referred to as
the Hand Reader for the remainder of this manual.
2. The Platen is the flat surface at the base of the Hand Reader (see Figure 1-1). This is where users
place their hands for enrollment and verification. It has guide pins to position the fingers during
use.

Four different features assist the user with hand placement and read verification.
1. A light emitting diode (LED) hand placement display on the hand reader’s top
panel assists users with hand placement on the platen.
2. A liquid crystal display (LCD) shows operational data and programming menus.
3. “Red light/green light” verification LEDs quickly inform users if their verification
attempts were accepted or rejected.
4. An internal beeper provides audible feedback during keypad data entry and user
verification.

Planning an Installation
Site Preparation
Before you begin installation, check the site blueprints, riser diagrams, and
specifications for important information about hand reader location and other systems
that connect to the Hand Reader. Look for any existing wall preparations and wiring
that other contractors may have installed for the Hand Readers.
Hand Reader Placement
The recommended height for the Hand Reader platen is 40 inches (102 cm) from the
finished floor. The Hand Reader should be out of the path of pedestrian and vehicular
traffic, and convenient to, but not behind the door it is controlling. Avoid placing the
Hand Reader where users must cross the swing path of the door. The Hand Reader
should be in an area where it is not exposed to excessive airborne dust, direct sunlight,
water, or chemicals.
40 in. (102 cm.)
Figure 2-1: Hand Reader Placement Rules
NOTE
For the following sections, Recognition Systems does not supply hardware items such
as door control relays, door locks, switches, relays, communications or power wiring,
or power supplies (a PS-200 power supply can be purchased from Recognition
Systems to power the Hand Reader).
Revision 2.0
Page 13
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Wiring
Four basic circuits typically connect to the Hand Reader:
• Power Input
• Door Control Inputs and Outputs
• Networking and Communications
• Card Reader Input and Emulation Output
Power Input
The Hand Reader requires 12 to 24 volts DC (600 mA) or 12 to 24 volts AC (7 watts).
Power can be connected either to terminals 1 and 2 on the terminal strip or through
barrel jack J12.
NOTE
Terminal 1 and the center pin of jack J12 are connected together. Terminal 2 and the
sleeve of jack J12 are connected together.
A full-wave bridge rectifier input structure is used in the power supply of the Hand
Reader, making the polarity of terminals 1 and 2 irrelevant. Recognition Systems
recommends using terminal 1 for positive (+) voltage and terminal 2 for common (-)
for consistency. If J12 is used to attach power with the optional Recognition Systems
wall-mount power supply, terminal 1 will reflect +13.8 VDC (unregulated) and
terminal 2 will be power supply common.
NOTE Neither terminal 1 or terminal 2 is connected to the Hand Reader ground.
It is not necessary to use a regulated external power supply to provide power to the
Hand Reader. AWG 18 wiring is recommended. Suitable wall mount power supplies
are available from Recognition Systems with either 110 VAC or 220 VAC input
ranges.
Grounding
Recognition Systems recommends that all Hand Readers be grounded with a solid,
reliable earth ground connection. This can be accomplished by attaching a separate
wire no smaller than AWG 18 between any of the Hand Reader’s terminal strip ground
connections and a good, solid, earth ground source.
NOTE
Terminal 2 is NOT directly connected to ground within the reader. Do NOT use this pin
to establish earth ground. Use any one of the following ground terminals: 8, 10, 12,
14, 18, 20, 22, 24, or 26.
This connection establishes a common ground return point used to protect internal
semiconductor devices from ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) and from external signal
line transients. It also provides a common signal level reference point between
externally networked Hand Readers. Recognition Systems recommends that the earth
ground source be identified by a qualified electrician familiar with electrical codes as
well as wiring and grounding techniques.

Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Battery Backup Operation
The Hand Reader uses an internal switching regulator to obtain internal operational
power. It accepts input voltages from 12 to 24 VDC or 12 to 24 VAC at 50 to 60 Hz.
An optional power-fail protection circuit board can be attached to the main circuit
board to provide and control battery backup. The design of the internal power supply
is such that any range of the above input voltages may be used and still provide proper
battery charge voltage and battery backup operation. Switch-over to battery power is
automatic and occurs when the input voltage falls to approximately 10.5 volts. At that
time the internal battery charger is disabled to save power and uninterrupted operation
continues on battery power.
When input power is restored, the Hand Reader switches off of battery operation and
the battery charger is re-enabled to recharge the battery. Battery charge voltage is set at
approximately 13.65 volts, and battery charge current is limited to approximately 50
mA. A fully discharged battery requires approximately 12 hours of charge to fully
recover.
Additional options installed and specific configurations within the Hand Reader make
it difficult to predict precisely how long battery support will last, but in general two
hours of battery operation can be expected. While operating on battery backup due to
loss of main input power, the battery output voltage is constantly monitored by
internal circuitry. If the battery voltage reaches approximately 9.5 volts the Hand
Reader automatically shuts down. This is done to prevent full exhaustion of the
battery. A yellow indicator on the top panel illuminates to indicate that the Hand
Reader is running off of battery power. This indicator extinguishes when main input
power is restored.
Shunt J7 which is located immediately in front of the DIP switches on the main logic
board (see Figure 3-3) enables or disables battery operation on those Hand Readers
equipped with optional battery backup. If a Hand Reader does not have the optional
battery backup package installed, J7 is not used. On Hand Readers equipped with the
battery backup option, J7 allows service personnel a mechanism for disabling battery
backup operation before removal of main input power. To fully power down a Hand
Reader equipped with battery backup, remove or reposition shunt J7 so that the two
pins protruding up from the main logic board are not connected to each other. This
effectively opens the circuit, removing the battery from any internal circuitry. Main
input power can then be removed and the Hand Reader will fully shut down. Once the
Hand Reader has fully shut down, shunt J7 may be reinstalled. The design of the
power supply is such that main input power must be reapplied to re-enable the battery
protection mechanism. If shunt J7 is not properly installed, the internal backup battery
will not be charged, and in the event of a main input power loss, the Hand Reader will
shut down.
Revision 2.0
Page 15
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
The Hand Reader with the battery backup option uses a 12 volt 800 ma/hour sealed
lead acid battery to provide backup battery power. This battery is located immediately
inside the rear panel of the Hand Reader and plugs into jack J4 on the keypad control
circuit board located in the top of the chassis.
Door Control Output
The Hand Reader can operate a door in two different modes: lock output and card
reader emulation. The wiring for each mode is significantly different.
Lock Output Mode
In the lock output mode, the Hand Reader acts as an intelligent access reader signaling
a lock relay or controller to unlock the door. It also monitors the status of the door. The
decision to unlock the door is made by the Hand Reader after a valid verification.
Users may be assigned time restrictions to limit access during specified hours or days.
Card Reader Emulation Mode
In card reader emulation mode, the Hand Reader outputs Wiegand, magnetic stripe, or
some other card reader signal, typically to an access control panel when a user
successfully verifies. This mode makes integrating with existing access control
systems fast and simple. On retrofit applications, the existing card reader wiring can
be used to connect the Hand Reader to the panel if it has AWG 22 or larger conductors
and is in good condition.
NOTE
The standard Hand Reader emulation format is for a 26-bit Wiegand card using an 8bit facility code. Other formats and card reader technology emulations are available.
Consult the factory for formats other than 26-bit Wiegand.
The ID number may be entered via the integrated keypad or an external card reader.
•
•
Page 16
If the user enters the ID number from the keypad, the Hand Reader sends the ID
number to the access panel in the specified card format with a pre-programmed
facility code.
If the ID number is entered via the card reader, the Hand Reader stores the card
data and then sends the data, unmodified, to the access panel when the user
successfully verifies.
Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Inputs and Outputs
In addition to the Lock and Auxiliary Output and the Card Reader Emulation Output,
the Hand Reader has additional inputs and outputs for use with alarms and other
controllers.
•
•
•
•
•
Three Programmable Auxiliary Outputs
Door Monitor Switch Input
Request to Exit Input
Card Reader Input for Wiegand or Magnetic Stripe
Two Auxiliary Inputs
An open collector transistor driver drives each one of these outputs. Open collector
refers to a transistor configuration capable of sinking current (by “pulling down” one
side of a load to ground) but not able to source current – e.g. the transistor output is
incapable of supplying current to drive up the output voltage and must rely on an
external voltage source to accomplish this.
Hand Reader outputs, when measured to ground, generally show around 4.5 volts
when they are inactive and no load is attached. This voltage is developed by a
combination diode and series resistor pull up to the internal +5 volt supply of the Hand
Reader. These outputs are pulled up internally to insure that they remain in a known
condition if used to output Wiegand or magnetic stripe data to some external device.
If one of the outputs is shorted to ground, there will be approximately 5 mA of current
flowing through the short, but no damage will occur. Because of the open collector
structure of the outputs, each output is free to float to whatever external voltage is
applied (when inactive). For example, if one side of a relay coil is connected to an
external +12 volt power source and the other side of the relay coil is measured with
respect to the ground of the external power source, the measurement will be +12 volts.
If the ground of the external power source (+12 volt return) is tied to the ground of the
Hand Reader, and the free relay coil wire connected to the LOCK output, the LOCK
output pin will read +12 volts also (when inactive). This is because the LOCK output
is not active and free to “float” to whatever external voltage is applied. When a hand is
verified, the LOCK output becomes active and essentially looks like a short to the
Hand Reader ground. This “short” causes the full +12 volts of the external power
source to be placed across the relay coil, energizing the relay. The ground of the
external +12 volt source must be tied to the Hand Reader ground to make a complete
circuit path.
All Hand Reader outputs are rated at +24 volts DC maximum with a maximum current
draw of 100 mA. This means that it is acceptable to use up to a +24 volt DC external
power supply to energize external devices. Whatever external relay is used should be
chosen to match the external power supply voltage. For example, if the external relay
Revision 2.0
Page 17
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
coil is rated at 15 volts, a 15 volt external power supply should be used. In no case
should the external voltage be higher than +24 VDC.
Each Hand Reader has a protection mechanism built in to protect against voltage
transients (spikes) coming back into the Hand Reader from an external relay coil.
Transients from an “opening” or de-energizing relay coil can reach several hundred
volts. This protection is on all Hand Reader outputs and will limit reverse spikes to
approximately 28 volts to protect the open collector transistor driver. Hand Reader
outputs are NOT designed to switch AC voltages. DC voltages MUST be used and the
correct polarities MUST be maintained.
NOTE
Relays or devices connected to the lock and auxiliary outputs must not exceed 0.1 A
current draw.
Networking and Communications
Hand Reader networking and communications can be configured in one of five ways:
•
•
•
•
•
as a stand-alone Hand Reader
as a master or remote Hand Reader in a Hand Reader network
as a remote Hand Reader in a Hand Reader network connected to a host PC
as a remote network connected via optional Modem to host PC
remote network connected via optional Ethernet to host PC
Stand-alone Hand Reader
When installed as a stand-alone access control system there is no communication
wiring to other Hand Readers or to a host computer. Power input and control output
wiring are all that are required. An RS-232 serial printer output is available for event
logging (refer to the Printer section on page 13). Recognition Systems highly
recommends using Backhand™ software to backup template information stored in the
Hand Reader.
Master or Remote Hand Reader in a Hand Reader Network
Multiple Hand Readers can be linked together in a Hand Reader network.
•
•
•
Page 18
Up to 32 Hand Readers can be linked together on a 2-wire RS-485 or 4-wire RS422 network (see Figure 3-1).
Two twisted-pair, shielded, AWG 22 (or larger) wire should be used (Recognition
Systems recommends Belden 82732 or its equivalent).
The wiring must be a “daisy chain” network from Hand Reader to Hand Reader
and must not exceed 4,000 feet (1220 meters) in total length.
Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
The master/remote network requires user enrollment at the “master” Hand Reader. The
master Hand Reader distributes hand template data with ID numbers and time
restrictions (if any) to the other Hand Readers in the network. Users removed at the
master Hand Reader are automatically removed from the remote readers. A printer
connected to the master Hand Reader will report transactions from all Hand Readers
on the network.
The master/remote network is highly effective with systems using card reader
emulation mode for user populations smaller than 500 people since it does not require
a host computer to manage the Hand Reader template database. Recognition Systems
highly recommends using Backhand™ software to backup template information
stored in the Hand Reader.
Remote Hand Reader in a Hand Reader Network Connected to a Host PC
Multiple Hand Readers can be linked to a personal computer (PC) for an integrated
access control network. Real time monitoring of door status and a variety of alarm
types can be done with Recognition Systems’ HandNet for Windows™ (Recognition
Systems model number HN-300) software. To run HandNet for Windows™ the
computer must be PC compatible, using a Pentium™-166 or faster microprocessor and
it must have a CD-ROM.
•
•
•
•
•
•
The HandNet software can monitor over 1,000 Hand Readers simultaneously.
An unlimited number of sites can be created with up to 32 Hand Readers per site.
The Hand Readers report all transactions to the PC. The HandNet software records
all transactions and displays a variety of reports generated from this information.
Template management is handled automatically.
Users may enroll at any Hand Reader in the system. The PC collects the data and
distributes it to other Hand Readers in the network.
Access may be restricted by time and by Hand Reader via HandNet’s access
profiles and by the use of time zones.
Typically, Hand Reader networks link to a PC using a 4-wire RS-485 (RS-422)
connection. These networks have the following requirements.
•
•
•
Revision 2.0
Two twisted pair, shielded, AWG 22 wire or larger should be used (Recognition
Systems recommends Belden No. 82723 or equivalent cable).
Hand Readers must be wired together in a “daisy chain” network from Hand
Reader to Hand Reader and then to the host PC. The total length of the wiring must
not exceed 4,000 feet per network.
The network requires an RS-485(422) to RS-232 converter (Recognition Systems
P/N DC-102) at the PC.
Page 19
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Recognition Systems’ optional HandNet for Windows™ software allows
programming of most of the remote Hand Reader setups from the computer. However,
each Hand Reader on the network requires the setting of an address. Hand Reader
addresses may be repeated, but only on different sites. Display language, date format
changes, and the communication mode must also be set at the Hand Reader.
Remote Hand Reader Connected to a Host PC via Optional Modem
An optional, internal “answer only” 14.4 bps modem is available for Hand Readers.
This modem is designed for operation with United States phone systems. Site wiring
should conform to standard telephone wiring standards and terminate at the Hand
Reader with a standard RJ-11 modular phone jack. Each Hand Reader with a modem
includes a 12-inch (30 cm) cable for the final connection between the phone jack and
the Hand Reader modem. Modem Hand Readers may be networked with up to 31 nonmodem Hand Readers using RS-485 4-wire (RS-422) wiring. Refer to the Using a
Modem in a HandKey Network Application Note (available from Recognition
Systems) for detailed information.
Remote Hand Reader Connected to a Host PC via Optional Ethernet
The Hand Reader is available with an optional, internal Ethernet communications
module for TCP/IP communications. The wiring must conform to 10BaseT standards.
Typically, network wiring terminates at the Hand Reader with a standard RJ-45
modular jack. The cable from the jack to the Hand Reader is not provided with the
Ethernet option. The IP address and Gateway are entered at the Hand Reader in the
SET SERIAL menu. The Subnet Mask is automatically calculated based on the class
of the IP address. Ethernet Hand Readers may be networked with up to 31 nonEthernet Hand Readers using RS-422 twisted pair cable. Refer to the Using an
Ethernet HandKey Network Application Note (available from Recognition Systems)
for detailed information.
Printer
You can connect a serial printer to a Hand Reader. A printer connected to the master
Hand Reader (in a master-remote application) will print every event as it occurs. A
printer connected to a remote Hand Reader will print only the events that occur at that
Hand Reader. Recognition Systems Inc. does not supply serial printers. Refer to the
Printer String Information Application Note (available from Recognition Systems) for
detailed information.

2. For a solid wall, use expansion bolts to mount the wall plate. For all five mounting
holes, drill a 1/4 inch diameter hole, 1/4 of an inch deeper than the length of the
expansion anchor.
Routing the Wiring
1. For a concealed wiring connection, drill a 1/2 inch hole in a convenient location
within the open area of the wall plate. Pull the wiring to enter the Hand Reader
through this hole in the open area.
2. For a surface conduit wiring connection, drill a 1/4 inch diameter hole, 1/4 of an
inch deeper than the length of the expansion anchor for each of the two conduit
clamp holes. Route 1/2 inch conduit to the Hand Reader, ending the conduit
between the two conduit clamp holes. Pull the wiring to enter the Hand Reader
through the conduit.
Attaching the Hand Reader
1. Loosen the three bottom mounting screws until there is approximately 1/8 inch (3
mm) clearance between the screw head and the wall plate.
2. Remove the Hand Reader from its carton.
3. At the base of the Hand Reader is a piano hinge with three keyhole shaped slots
that correspond with the three lower mounting screws. Align and hang the Hand
Reader from the three lower mounting screws (see Figure 3-2).

in the network must have EOL termination turned OFF.
In a Hand Reader/host PC network, a modem/host PC network, and a Ethernet/
host PC network, the last Remote reader in the daisy-chain must have EOL
termination turned ON.
Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Communication Method
Communication can be done via an RS-232 direct connection, a 4-wire RS-422
network configuration, or a 2-wire RS-485 network configuration connected to a DC103 Data Converter. The factory default setting is for network communication via 4wire RS-422 cabling – switch 3 OFF. Refer to Figure 3-11 for switch ON/OFF
positioning.
•
•
•
NOTE
For network communication via 4-wire RS-485 (RS-422) cabling, switch 3 must
be OFF.
For network communication via 2-wire RS-485 cabling, switch 3 must be ON.
For network communication via direct connection, the switch 3 position does not
apply. Leave switch 3 in the default OFF position.
All Hand Readers in a network must be set to the same communication method. Fourwire RS-422 cabling is required for HandNet for Windows™ network installations.
Recognition Systems does not recommend two-wire RS-485 cabling for new network
installations.
Erasing Hand Reader Memory
The erase memory function allows a Hand Reader’s setup and/or user database to be
erased. The factory default setting (and normal operation setting) is for switches 4 and
5 to be OFF, retaining memory.
Erasing the Hand Reader Setup
Perform the following steps to erase the setup programs but retain the user database.
1. With system power OFF, set switch 4 ON.
2. Turn system power ON and wait 5 seconds.
3. Turn switch 4 OFF.
Erasing the Hand Reader Setup and User Database
Perform the following steps to erase both the setup programs and the user database.
1. With system power OFF, set both switches 4 and 5 ON.
2. Turn system power ON and wait 5 seconds.
3. Turn both switches 4 and 5 OFF.
NOTE
Before putting the hand reader into service ensure DIP switches 4 and 5
are both OFF. If switches 4 and 5 are not off, the next time the Hand
Reader’s power is cycled the Hand Reader’s memory will be erased.

Menu Passwords
To control access to the command menus, each menu has a unique password. This
password is requested as a part of the process for accessing each menu. A user must
enter the correct password for that menu to access that menu. The default menu
passwords are given in Table 7.

To increase the security of the Hand Reader, Recognition Systems recommends
changing the passwords for the command menus to new numbers. These password
numbers can be up to 10 digits long. This is done with the Set Passwords command
described on page 63.
Authority Level
A second method for controlling access to the command menus is through the use of
Authority Levels. Authority Levels control which command menus a user is allowed
to access; the higher the authority level a user is granted, the greater the number of
menus the user may access. Assign Authority Levels to users according to the types of
tasks to which they are assigned.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Page 38
Level 0 is for a user who does not need access to any of the command menus.
Level 1 provides access to the Service command menu.
Level 2 adds access to the Setup command menu to all previous access levels.
Level 3 adds access to the Management command menu to all previous access
levels.
Level 4 adds access to the Enrollment command menu to all previous access
levels.
Level 5 adds access to the Security command menu to all previous access levels.
Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
The Hand Reader automatically assigns Authority Level 0 to each ID number enrolled.
Until a user has been assigned to Authority Level 5, every user with Authority Level 0
can access every menu. This is done to ensure that the first person enrolled is able to
access all the menus to perform all the programming required to support the Hand
Reader. Once a user has been assigned to Authority Level 5, all other user authority
levels are applied as per the list above.
NOTE
The first person enrolled should be designated the System Administrator and should
change his/her Authority Level to 5. This protects the integrity of the system by
enacting the Authority Level rules described in the list above. Recognition Systems
strongly recommends assigning at least two users to Authority Level 5 to ensure that
more than one person has the authority to access all menus and all commands.
Programming Order
When setting up Hand Reader operations there is a general programming/operations
order that should be followed.
Design an ID Numbering System – Define the format for user ID assignments. A
properly designed ID numbering system makes the Hand Reader easier and faster
to use.
Enter a Command Menu – Enter a Command Menu and begin Hand Reader
programming per the commands in that menu.
Enroll all Supervisory Staff – Enroll yourself and the supervisors who will have
responsibility for Hand Reader management. This is done through the Enrollment
Menu.
Set Supervisory Staff Authority Levels – Assign Authority Levels to the supervisors
with specific Hand Reader management responsibilities. This is done through the
Security Menu.
Set Reader Site Parameters – Set the reader’s Operating Parameters to meet site
specific needs and usage. This is done through the Setup Menu.
Train and Enroll Users – Train each user regarding Hand Reader usage and then Enroll
each user. This is done through the Enrollment Menu.
System Management and Maintenance
Once a Hand Reader network is in operation the following commands are used to
manage and maintain the Hand Reader network.
Set Reader Operating Thresholds – Set the Reject and Number-of-Tries Hand Reader
operating thresholds to meet the site’s security requirements. This is done through
the Security Menu.
System Management – Backup or Restore Hand Reader data and List the Users
authorized to use a Hand Reader. This is done through the Management Menu.
System Maintenance – Calibrate the Hand Reader, display Hand Reader Status, and
display Network Status. This is done through the Service Menu.
Revision 2.0
Page 39
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
NOTE
For documentation clarity, instructions for operating each of the menu commands are
presented in menu order, which is not necessarily programming order. Please keep this
in mind as you review the commands for all of the menu options.
Design an ID Numbering System
The ID numbering system helps identify the user about to use the Hand Reader. ID
numbers are used when enrolling users. A properly designed ID numbering system
allows for quicker user recognition (through the use of the Set ID Length command)
and allows the assigning of a Duress code. A Duress code sends a silent alarm to a predefined location when entered by a user. Use the following guidelines when designing
an ID numbering system.
NOTE
Designing an ID numbering system is not necessary when using an external card
reader to enter the ID number. All ID information is provided by the card.
•
•
•
•
•
Each user must have a unique ID number.
ID numbers can be up to 10 digits long.
For ease of memorization, make each number as short as possible. Generally
speaking, 4 digit or fewer ID numbers are easy to remember.
Make all ID numbers the same length. This allows the Set ID Length command to
be used, automatically reading an ID number when the proper number of digits
have been entered. If different ID number lengths are used, a user must press the
# key to identify when the complete ID number has been entered.
To use the Duress feature, ID numbers must begin with one specific digit that has
been identified as the Duress code and this digit cannot be used as the first digit in
any of the user ID numbers. This means that in normal use a user enters his/her ID
number followed by the # key. To create a Duress alarm, the user enter the
Duress code, the user’s ID number, and the # key. The Set ID Length command
cannot be used if the Duress feature is used.

To access all five menus you must be the first person enrolled in a new system
installation or you must have the highest authority level and the correct passwords for
all five menus. If you are blocked from a menu to which you should have access, verify
your access/password rights with management personnel. If authority levels or
passwords have been incorrectly changed and you must have access to all menus, it is
possible to reset the Hand Reader’s memory. Resetting memory allows access to all
five menus by the first person enrolled (as if it is a new system installation), but this
means that any user information programmed into the Hand Reader must be reentered (manually or by using HandNet software to restore the user information). Be
sure you need to reset memory before performing this function. To reset memory, refer
to the Erasing Hand Reader Memory section on page 35.

The Security menu has six commands. These commands control the security of the
Hand Reader and the sensitivity of the Hand Reader when reading hands.
Set User Data – Set the User Authority level controlling which command menus a user
is allowed to access, Set the User Reject Threshold adjusting the hand read
threshold for one Hand Reader without affecting the threshold of others, and Set
the User Time Zone.
Set TZ Table – Set, examine, print, or clear Time Zone or Holiday table values and set
an Unlock Time Zone value.
Reject Threshold – Set the Hand Reader’s Reject Sensitivity level applied to all users
when reading hand data and Set the Number of Retries a user is allowed before
being rejected by a Hand Reader.
Set Passwords – Change the passwords assigned to each of the five command menus.
Clear Memory – Clear the user data from the system, but retain the setup data.
Special Enroll – Allows a user to be enrolled such that the ID number is the primary
criteria for determining access. A hand read is required, but is not verified against
any stored identification data.
The following sections describe all the Security menu options. All commands are
described in the order they are accessed. Locate the command you need to perform and
step through all previous commands until you reach the desired command.

Set User Data
The Set User Data command allows you to set the User Authority level, the User
Reject Level, and the User Time Zone.
•
•
•
The Authority Level controls which command menus a user is allowed to access;
the higher the authority level, the greater the number of menus the user may
access.
The User Reject level allows you to set the number of failed hand read attempts for
a user before rejecting further attempts by that user.
The User Time Zone allows you to assign a time zone to a user, restricting the
time-of-day that a user may be granted access.
Set User Authority Level
In the following example a user with ID # 321 is assigned Authority Level 4.
1. Enter the Security command menu per the instructions in the Enter a Command
Menu section earlier in this Manual. The default password for the Security menu is

Set TZ Table
The Set TZ Table command allows you to create or edit Time Zone and Holiday
tables. A time zone is an identified period-of-time and days-of-the-week, during which
a user is allowed access to an area secured by a Hand Reader. Once a user is assigned a
Time Zone (refer to the Set User Time Zone command on page 48), access attempts
outside of that time/date period are rejected by the Hand Reader.
A time zone may be “split.” This means that a time zone may identify more than one
set of period-of-time and days-of-the-week – up to four sets in one time zone. This
provides a great deal of flexibility in providing secured access through a Hand Reader.
Time Zone information can also be printed for review or cleared if a time zone
becomes unnecessary.
NOTE
All time entries made for time zones are entered in 24-hour format. For example, 8
A.M. is entered as 08:00, 5 P.M. is entered as 17:00, and 11 P.M is entered as 23:00.
The Holiday schedule for a calendar year can be entered. Once a holiday schedule is
set, holidays are applied to time zones just like another day of the week (1 to 7 for the
days of the week, 8 for holidays). Once entered, the holiday schedule can be printed
for review and cleared.
NOTE
Certain holidays, such as Easter and Thanksgiving, change their days from year to
year. You must review and edit your holiday schedule each year to ensure the correct
days are counted as holidays.
An Unlock Time Zone can also be set. The unlock time zone is a special time zone that
automatically unlocks the door associated with a Hand Reader when the time zone is
active, and then automatically locks that door when the time zone becomes inactive.
This can be used on doors where general access is allowed during specific times of the
day (such as business hours).

Reject Threshold
Use the Reject Threshold command to set the Hand Reader’s reject sensitivity level
applied when reading hand data and to set the number of tries a user is allowed before
being rejected by a Hand Reader.
The reject sensitivity level and number of tries are global values. This means that these
values are applied to all users on all Hand Readers on the network – except for those
users who have been assigned an individual user reject level (refer to the Set User
Reject Level command on page 46).
The default reject threshold is 100. This is the best threshold value for most
applications.
•
•
Raising the threshold level makes the Hand Reader less sensitive to variations in
user hand placement on the platen.
Lowering the threshold level might result in a greater number of rejected attempts,
but also results in a more secure system.
The default number of tries is 3. If a user exceeds the number of tries without a valid
hand read, the Hand Reader will refuse all subsequent attempts with that user ID
number. This means the user will be locked out until another user is verified
successfully.
The following instructions demonstrate how to set the Reject Threshold to 105 and the
number of tries to 4.

Special Enroll
Allows a user to be enrolled such that the ID number is the primary criteria for
determining access. A hand read is required, but is not verified against any stored
identification data. A time zone value can also be applied to the Special Enrollment ID
number to increase access limits. The default is for no time zone to be applied.
NOTE
Special Enrollment affects the integrity of the Hand Reader network and should only
be used as a last resort. Anyone who knows a Special Enroll ID number is granted
access when the ID number is used. Before specially enrolling a user, try to alleviate
verification problems by adjusting the individual user’s reject threshold (see page 61).

Enrollment Menu
Enrollment is the process of recording a hand image and associating it with an ID
number. The first person to enroll in the Hand Reader has access to all command
menus. This person should be considered the System Administrator and should retain
the highest authority level to access all five menus at any time1. As other users are
enrolled they can be left as basic access users or they can be assigned varying degrees
of authority depending upon the tasks for which they will be responsible.
Advance planning and training make enrollment fast and easy. Users should be
informed on what to expect and how to place their hands on the Hand Reader before
you enroll them.
Preparation
Here are a few guidelines to help you prepare for an enrollment session.
•
•
•
•
•
•
You can enroll one person or a group of people during an enrollment session.
Each user must have a unique personal identification (ID) number. It will save you
considerable time if you assign the ID numbers in advance2.
The Hand Reader will not accept two people with the same ID number.
If you enroll people using the last four digits of their phone numbers or social
security numbers, you may get duplicate numbers.
If you plan to use the Duress function, do not enroll ID numbers that begin with the
Duress code digit3.
If you are enrolling large groups of people you may consider using an enrollment
trainer. It is a replica of a platen that is available through your Recognition
Systems dealer.
User Education
The Hand Reader is easy to use and non-threatening. However, most people have
never used a biometric Hand Reader. Training users on how the Hand Reader works
and how to use it will eliminate most fears and concerns before they occur. Inform the
users of these facts.
•
•
•
•
•
•
The Hand Reader reads the shape of the hand, not the fingerprints or palmprints.
It does not identify people. It confirms people’s identity.
It scans with an invisible light of the type used in TV remote controls.
It does not transfer germs any more than a doorknob or money.
It does not invade privacy; it guarantees it.
The enrollment process requires three or more reads to collect enough information
to verify the user’s identity.
1. Refer to the Set User Data > Set Authority Level command in the Security command menu on
page 44.
2. Refer to the Design an ID Numbering System section on page 40.
3. Refer to the Set Duress Code command in the Setup command menu on page 113.

Proper Hand Placement
For correct, consistent hand reads it is very important that your hand is placed on the
platen in the same manner every time. The following rules apply for proper hand
placement on the platen.
•
•
•
•
•
•
If you are wearing a ring, rotate the ring so the stone faces up in its normal
position.
Slide your right hand onto the platen rather like an airplane landing at the airport.
Slide your hand forward until the web between your index and middle finger stops
against the Web Pin.
Keep your hand flat. You should feel the surface of the platen on your palm and the
underside of your fingers.
Close your fingers together until they touch the Finger Pins and watch the hand
diagram light display on the top panel.
The lights go out when you have properly placed your fingers. If a light remains
on, a finger is not in proper contact with its Finger Pin.
WEB PIN
Figure 6-1: Placing Your Hand on the Platen
Left Hand Enrollment
Some right hands are not suitable for use in the Hand Reader due to disabilities such as
missing fingers. You can enroll a user with the left hand facing palm side up. The
techniques for left hand enrollment are the same as for standard enrollment. The user
should keep the back of the hand flat against the platen and move the fingers against
the web pin and the finger pins in the same manner as in standard enrollment. Users
enrolled with the left hand must always verify with the left hand. Extra practice on
placing the hand on the platen may be required to ensure correct, consistent hand
reads.

HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Read Score
When a user uses the Hand Reader a number appears in the display.
ID VERIFIED
##
The number on the display reflects how accurately the user is placing his/her hand on
the platen. Scores that vary greatly between low and high numbers are indicative of
inconsistent hand placement. Scores above 50 are indicative of improper hand
placement or of a drastic change in the physical appearance of the hand.
When this occurs, emphasize the importance of sliding the hand onto the platen and
keeping the hand flat. Re-training and practice should lower a user’s score. It might be
necessary to change a user’s sensitivity if the user has a mild disability. Re-enrollment
might be necessary to create a new user template.

Set Reader Site Parameters
The following section provides a brief summary of all the parameters that need to be
set for the Hand Reader site. Programming instructions are provided following this
summary.
NOTE
Once in the Command Menu, you can step through and set the parameters for each
command sequentially. You do not have to exit command mode after setting any
individual command.
Set Language – allows the language shown on the Hand Reader’s display to be
“localized” for a variety of countries.
Set Date Format – allows the date format shown on the Hand Reader’s display to be
“localized” for a variety of countries.
Set Time and Date – allows the Hand Reader’s time and date to be set. If the Hand
Reader is networked to a PC, this step is not necessary as the Hand Reader’s time
and date will be set by the host computer.
NOTE
Stand-alone Hand Readers and Hand Readers on a master/remote Hand Reader
network require adjustment for the daylight savings time changes. Hand Readers
networked to a host PC do not require adjustment as the host PC automatically makes
the adjustment.
Set Address – allows a unique address to be set for each Hand Reader in a network.
For proper operation, each Hand Reader in the network must have a unique
address. Addresses 0 to 254 are available – address 255 is reserved for the master
Hand Reader in a network. The default address is 0. An address does not need to
be set for stand-alone Hand Readers.
Set ID Length – allows you to reduce the number of keystrokes required to enter the
ID number by eliminating the use of the ENTER key to complete an ID
number entry. Once the ID Length is set, when a user enters an ID number the
Hand Reader will automatically accept that number once the correct number of
characters have been entered. Set ID Length does not apply when ID entry is made
from a card reader. Set ID Length cannot be used if a Duress Code has been
assigned.
Set Output Mode – allows either of two output modes to be set. Outputs are pulled to
ground when activated.
• Lock/Aux for Hand Readers acting as door controllers
• Card Reader Emulation for Hand Readers outputting to an access control panel
Revision 2.0
Page 83
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Set Facility – allows the facility code to be entered in Hand Readers configured for
card reader emulation output mode. A facility code is not valid or required for
Hand Readers configured in Lock/Aux output mode.
NOTE
When using a HandKey II on a Wiegand format access control panel and a keypad is
used for ID entry, you must set the site code to the access control panel’s facility code.
Without a matching code the access control panel will deny access to HandKey users.
Set Lock and Shunt – allows the time that the door lock output is activated and the
door alarm is shunted to be set. It also allows the auxiliary keypad to be used for
user ID entry. The Lock time is the number of seconds the lock output is active
(door is unlocked) following user verification. The Lock time is only valid when
the Hand Reader is set to the Lock & Aux output mode. The Shunt time is the
number of seconds the door may be held open before an alarm is generated. Lock
and Shunt times are not required for Hand Readers configured in Card Reader
Emulation output mode.
Aux Out Control – allows the Auxiliary Outputs in the Hand Reader to be set to trigger
based on selected events. Alarms can be mapped to appropriate Auxiliary Outputs.
Outputs are also cleared in this menu option. In the Lock and Shunt mode, all three
Auxiliary Outputs are available. In the Card Reader Emulation mode, Auxiliary
Outputs 1 and 2 are available.
Set Reader Mode – allows a Hand Reader to be set as the Master Hand Reader in a
Hand Reader network. All user enrollment is done through the Master Hand
Reader. The Master Hand Reader automatically downloads user data to all remote
Hand Readers on the network. The Reader Mode does not need to be set for standalone Hand Readers and PC networks.
Set Serial – allows you to select either the RS-485/RS-422 or RS-232 communication
mode and to set the baud rate for the selected communication mode. The default
baud rate is 9600 bps which is suitable for most network communication
applications. If the Hand Reader uses the Ethernet communication option, the
TCP/IP address and gateway parameters are set instead of the baud rate.
Set Duress Code – allows a special digit code to be defined that, when entered before a
user’s PIN entry, sends a silent alarm to security personnel using an auxiliary
output. This function only works with keypad ID number entry systems – it does
not work with Card Reader entry systems. If a Duress Code is set, an ID Length
cannot be set by the Set ID Length command.
NOTE
Page 84
For this function to work properly the following must be true: an auxiliary output must
be defined to activate on DURESS and assigned ID numbers cannot begin with the
duress code number.
Revision 2.0
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Set Printer Options – disables the printing of the “Valid Access” event message. The
Valid Access event message is the most frequently printed event. If a printer is
connected to the RS-232 serial port, it prints all events in real-time. This means the
printer will print a message for every Valid Access event unless disabled here.
Set Beeper – allows the beeper to be enabled or disabled. When enabled, the beeper
sounds an audible response to key strokes and events.

Glossary
Address, IP – An Internet Protocol address is a unique address assigned to a computer
for communicating over the Internet. It is made up of 4 sets of numbers,
separated by periods (for example, 123.245.78.901).
Address, Reader – A Hand Reader Address is a unique identification number assigned
to a Hand Reader. Each Hand Reader on a network must be assigned a unique
address.
AWG – American Wire Gauge is a U.S. standard set of wire conductor sizes. The
“gauge” refers to the diameter of the wire. The higher the gauge number, the
smaller the diameter, the thinner the wire, and the greater the electrical
resistance. Thicker, smaller gauge wire carries more current because it has less
electrical resistance over a given length. Thicker wire is better for long wire
distances.
Card Reader Emulation Mode – In Card Reader Emulation Mode, the Hand Reader
outputs hand read data in a card reader format, typically to an access control
panel. The data is outputted when user’s hand is successfully read. This mode
is commonly used when a Hand Reader is being added to an existing access
control network. By configuring the Hand Reader in card emulation mode, it
can easily replace an existing access control reader in the network. The Hand
Reader can be configured to output data in a variety of card reader formats –
such as Wiegand, ABA Track-II magnetic stripe, or bar code.
Daisy-Chain – A Daisy-Chain is a method of wiring together Hand Readers on a
network, where the first Hand Reader is connected to the second Hand Reader,
which is connected to the third Hand Reader, and so on until the last Hand
Reader is reached.
End-of-Line (EOL) Termination – EOL Termination is a set of resistors attached to the
data lines at the last Hand Reader physically connected to a network. These
resistors prevent data signal distortion and reflection back across the data lines,
improving the integrity of the network connection.
IP Address – see Address, IP
Platen – The Platen is the flat surface at the base of the HandKey, on which a user
places his/her hand for enrollment and verification. The platen has guide pins
to ensure the user’s fingers are consistently positioned correctly.
Reader Address – see Address, Reader
Template – A Template is a set of data generated for a user. It is made up of the user’s
enrollment information and any system configuration parameters that are
assigned to the user. The template is stored at each Hand Reader and can be
stored at a host computer when the HandNet™ for Windows™ software is
used.
Revision 2.0
Page 129
HandKey II Installation and Operation Manual
Time Zone – A Time Zone is an identified period of time, during which a user is
allowed access to an area secured by a Hand Reader. Access attempts outside
of that time period are rejected by the Hand Reader.
Transaction – A Transaction is any kind of event recorded at a Hand Reader.
Transactions may include actions such as accepted or denied hand reads, input
and output events, and doors opening and closing.
Wiegand™ Reader – The term “Wiegand Reader” has two meanings depending upon
its application. A true Wiegand reader reads a specially constructed card made
up of small pieces of magnetic wire. As the card is swiped through the reader,
the individual bits of wire generate a unique data signal. This data signal is
made up of a Facility Code field (typically 8 bits), an ID Number field
(typically 16 bits), and parity bits (typically 2 bits) for a total of 26 bits of data.
Now this 26-bit Wiegand data format has been adopted by a variety of access
reader devices and access control panels for transferring user access data.
