Glossary
Here are main concepts and definitions applied in following instruction. Many of the words or terms
in this guide have more common definitions than used in industry. In this document, we've used
them specifically in the context of access control system. For this reason, the following glossary of
terms defines these terms as used in this guide.
The most important concepts related to RACS:
· RACS - Roger Access Control System is a network access control system based on PRxx1,
PRxx2 series controllers, PRT identification terminals (readers) and optional CPR control
panel.
· AC - Access Control
· T&A - Time and Attendance
· Control panel (CPR) - element of RACS system, function as external events buffer,
synchronize real time clocks of all controllers, manage access rights on controllers PRxx1
series. Control panel presence in RACS is optional and results from functional expectations.
· Controller - device which controls users movements within precincts of one passage
(one-way or two-way). In case two-way passage, two access-points are required.
· Terminal - remote device (reader) which main purpose is to read identifier and send data to
controller for further converting. Identifier can be e.g. proximity card, PIN code, fingerprint.
· Proximity transponder - electronic chip with unique code included, which reading is carried
out with no-contact method. Transponders are offered as: ISO card, PVC card,
· Access Point - passage (entry/exit) where access is controlled by a controller.
· User - person registered in the access system database.
· System operator - person allowed to operate and supervise RACS system.
· Events history - pack of events registered during system work.
· Events buffer - battery sustained electronic memory where events are stored
· Monitoring Mode - working mode of PR Master, which consist in events visualization in a real
mode. When PR Master remains in a Monitoring mode, occurred events are immediately
appended to system database and are available to export and report generating.

Local system database
Local system database is used in simple installations on the one PC. It's the best solution, when
you don't have to control and configure system from many computers.
5.2
Network system database
Networked database can be used only in case Access Control System is connected trough UT-4
communication interface. Thanks to networked database it's available to configure and control
system from many PC's with PR Master installed.
Feature is very useful, especially when many users on different PC's want to use RACS.
Remember that PR Master is not typical network application. Only one PR Master application can
use database resources in the same time, therefore trying to run program on other PC will
generate following communicate and close.
To configure RACS system to work with networked system database you should carry out the
following steps:
· Copy Data catalog which is in x:\Program Files\Roger\Access Control System 4.2, where
x is your system disc,
· Paste the catalog to a place in local network where it will be shared for other computers
· Share Data catalog in local network (Sharing and security)
· Set permissions to change and read for all or selected network users
· Open Data/NET catalog and delete files: PDOXUSRS.NET, PARADOX.LCK,
PDOXUSRS.LCK
· Run BDE Administrator from Control Panel, following window will appear:

6.2.1.1
Installer
There is one user in PR system, who doesn't have ID number and is not authorised for door
opening and other system features. He is called INSTALLER. Installer is only able to enter
manually installer programming mode of the controller.
Programming INSTALLER user in PR system is not obligatory.
Note:
It is recommended to program RACS controllers from PR Master only. Making any changes in
contents of controller memory in installer or user programming mode causes incompatibility
with system database.
6.2.1.2
Arm/Disarm schedule
Access Controller has two working operating modes: Armed and Disarmed mode. The actual
controller's operating mode is indicated on the dual color LED STATUS, which lights in red for
Armed or green for Disarmed. Generally the Armed and Disarmed modes are dedicated for
integration of the controller with the alarm system which protects the same room or area which is
supervised by the access controller, nevertheless they can be used for any other control purpose
which requires an On/Off control method. The integration with the alarm system (or another device
or system) requires one output line to be configured to function no. 0 (Disarmed Mode) and one
input line configured to input no. 13 function (Ready Status). The controller output line (function no.
0) indicates current operating mode of the controller, whereas the input line (function no. 13)
verifies if the controlled system (or device) is ready to be armed (or set ON).
Note: When the installer doesn't define any controller's input to the function no. 13, the controller
assumes that the alarm system is always ready for arming and switches to armed mode
unconditionally.
Note: Upon powering on, the reader automatically returns to the Armed/Disarmed state it was in
before powered off. Also, the reader returns to its original Armed/Disarmed state after exiting the
programming mode. After Memory Reset the reader always enters the Armed mode.

Switching ARM/DISARM mode can be realised on the following methods:
· automatically, according to defined Arm/Disarm schedule
· locally with MASTER, SWITCHER or SWITCHER Limited identifiers
· locally with input line or [F1 - F2] key which is configured to one of following function:
1.
2.
3.
4.
[No.3: Arm/Disarm Steady Switch]
[No.61: Arm/Disarm Momentary Switch]
[No.78: Set Disarmed Mode]
[No.79: Set Armed Mode]
· locally trough the keypad command:
1. [No.11: Set Disarmed Mode]
2. [No.12: Set Armed Mode]
3. [No.13: Toggle Armed/Disarmed Mode]
· remotely with interactive command from PC (Commands to controller)
Note:
In case when Arm/Disarm mode control is realised trough: input line which is configured to
function [No 3, 78, 79] or keypad command, then all other methods are automatically disabled
Controller Arm/Disarm modes can be switched automatically by defined time schedule. To enable
it check [Enable Arm/Disarm Schedule] in Options tab in Controller properties. Auto-arming
can be delayed trough the Default Auto-arming Delay when alarm system not ready option and
additionally using manual triggering - Postponed Auto-arming Delay.

ARM Zone is a defined group of controllers in which all devices can be simultaneously turned to
ARMED or DISARMED mode. It means that switching controller to ARMED mode causes arming
of all controllers which belong to the same ARM zone and similarly switching controller to
DISARMED mode causes disarming of rest of controllers assigned to the ARM zone. ARM Zones
hierarchy enables to arrange zones in appropriate order. For example some of the ARM Zones
may be positioned lower, in this case they are armed simultaneously to superior zone. Turning to
ARMED mode of higher positioned ARM Zone causes arming of all ARM sub-zones with lower
level. Disarming of ARM Zone must be carried out individually for each zone.
Note:
This feature requires CPR host controller.

T&A modes
Time & Attendance mode is an element which attach T&A mark (Entrance, Exit, On-duty exit) to
the "Access granted" event. Each Access granted event which occur on controller has assigned a
T&A Mark (T&A status) which specifies what kind of entry/exit has been registered. The actual
type of registration for T&A purposes is determined by controller’s T&A Mode. Each T&A Mode
has its individual ID number from 0 to 255, numbers between 0 and 50 are reserved for predefined
T&A Modes which can not be modified or changed.
Predefined T&A modes:
·
·
·
·
Entry
Exit
On-duty exit (ODE)
No T&A (Ignored for T&A)
When controller stay in No T&A (Ignored for T&A) mode it means that events which will occur
during this mode will not play any rule in T&A reports or calculations.
The customer defined modes can be useful when new types of entry/exit are requested for
detailed statistics of users attendance. It's available to define 204 T&A modes (codes from 50 254). In RACS system each access point (controller/terminal) may have its own Default T&A
Mode. You can apply created T&A mode to Default T&A option in Controller properties (
Controllers -> Properties -> Terminal ID0, ID1 ). The T&A Mode of access terminal can not be
dynamically changed during system activity except situation when option Terminals ID=0 and ID=1
have the same T&A Mode is set.

·
·
·
set T&A Mode from keypad
set T&A Mode using [F1 - F4] Key
set T&A Mode from input
set T&A Mode automatically according to T&A Mode schedule
set T&A Mode using [*][#] command on controller's keypad (PR302LCD)
Setting T&A Mode from keypad
Installer may enable/disable dynamic setting of T&A Mode from controller's keypad. The manual
change of T&A Mode can be set for a limited period (momentary change) or for unlimited time
(stable change). When using “momentary change” method the newly selected T&A Mode will be
valid for nearest Access granted event only, when “stable method” is used all Access granted
events which will occur during selected T&A Mode will have the same (new) T&A mark.
INPUTS:
Setting T&A Mode from input
Installer may define one or more input line to be used for setting required T&A Mode of controller.
The input line can be used to set specified T&A Mode or to switch controller between different T&A
modes. The input line which dynamically change T&A Mode is very useful especially when an
external button(s) is required to select specified T&A Mode.

Stable T&A Mode setting input
When this type of input line is triggered controller move to next predefined T&A Mode and remain
in this mode until next command comes and change it again.
Momentary T&A Mode setting input
When this type of input line is triggered controller move to next predefined T&A Mode and remain
in this mode until next Card/PIN is entered, after this controller returns to previous T&A Mode.
When no Car/PIN is entered during 8 seconds period controller will restore previous T&A Mode
automatically.
Predefined T&A Mode setting input
When this type of input line is triggered controller move to dedicated T&A Mode and remain in that
mode until next command comes and change it again. Each input line can be used for setting
individual T&A Mode. For example IN1 can be used to set “Exit”, IN2 can be used to set “Entry”
and IN3 to set “On Duty Exit”.
T&A Mode controlled by schedule
The T&A Mode Schedule enables automatic change of controller T&A Mode according to defined
time schedule details. The T&A Mode Schedule specifies what T&A Mode will be set on controller
in particular moments of day, week or holydays.

Users
In Roger Access Control System can be registered up to 4000 users. Every user has his
identification number (ID) and may be one of four predefined types of users. Access controllers
identify users by their individual identifiers. In the Roger Access Control System identifier is a
transponder (Proximity card ) or PIN code. It's also available to set double identification mode
(Card+PIN), which obligate users to use both method for identification. Sequence is no matter.
Every identifier in system can be registered on unlimited time or time period limited to 12 months
(from Start date to Expiry date) Edit users. In addition it's possible to set Card usage limit.
Defining card usage limits is carried out for each of controllers registered in system. When user
activity time expired or card usage limits exceed, controller automatically removes the identifier
from the list of valid identifiers. There is no possibility of further using the identifier.

Zones
Access Zone - set of selected identification points (controllers with built-in readers or access
terminals) which are construed as a cohesive area in access control system. Examples of access
zones: Production Hall, Office, Workshop, Warehouse, Floor etc.
Generally the main purpose of Zone concept is to make defining access rights operation more
easy. Thanks to zones idea it's available to define access rights not only for one access point
(single door) but for set of devices (controllers/terminals) which control access to specified area in
object.
In special case each of access points (rooms) can compose single separated access zone. In this

Configure CPR in network
Main function of the CPR is to operate and coordinate work of autonomic devices, which are
components of Roger Access Control System.
CPR work modes
Control panel (CPR) can work in two main work modes; in [ON] mode or [OFF] mode. In the [ON]
mode CPR works normally and controls all operating functions, in the [OFF] mode it suspends
working and discharges system communication bus. [OFF] mode is indicated on control panel's
LEDs. Generally suspended mode is used for tests or conservation, eg. when the controllers
flashing procedure is being carried out.
Available commands and functions:
· Status - information of control panel are showed (type, buffer size, config file name, last
modification etc.)
· Options - enable/disable CPR tests
· Initialize - clear whole CPR memory, set clock and restart operation
· CPR Restart - cpr restart, used when CPR don't answer
· Read buffer - read events stored in CPR buffer
· Set clock - synchronize system clock according to the PC clock
· Update - send configuration to the CPR
· CPR On/Off - switch on/off mode
Note:
1. Initialize operation is usually carried out when CPR is completely deprogrammed or settings
error occurred. Problems with CPR may happened in result of an AC lost or failure of battery,
which sustain CPR memory. It's possible to initialize CPR manually.
2. In case control panel is in OFF mode for a long time, it's necessary to read events stored in
controllers buffers. To do this send command from the controllers window Check events buffer
in controller

Low battery test - Control panel periodically (in 10 minutes) tests battery charge level. In case as
Voltage level decrease below to 12.0V alarm will occur.
AC (Accumulator) test - When CPR found that Accumulator voltage is missing [AC lost] event is
indicated. Alarm decay when AC returns after 5 minutes.
Note:
Regarding work with PRxx1 controllers CPR performs also other functions - It supervises user
access rights and collect events from controllers.

Controllers
General Description
Access Controller is an autonomic device, which controls single access point (one-way or
two-way). In case two-way access point controller is connected with additional identification
terminal. The controller is dedicated for use in Access Control and Time & Attendance systems. It
may be configured to perform both function simultaneously or exclusively. Controller offers NO/NC
Inputs, relay and transistor Outputs. Inputs and Outputs can be configured to several pre-defined
functions. PRxx2 controller can register up to 4000 users, every user can be identified by Card,
PIN or both method together (Card+PIN). Controller offers In Circuit Programming feature which
enables firmware downloading into microprocessor memory. PRxx2 may operate with one or two
external identification terminal(s) (PRT series terminal or Wiegand interface reader). Usually an
remote identification terminal is used when door has to be controlled on both side or when
controller has to be located in protected area (room) in order to avoid access of unauthorized
person to controller’s electronic circuit.
PRxx2 may activate door lock through internal relay output (REL1) or through relay output located
on XM-2 remote I/O expander. Because an XM-2 module can be installed in remote, secure
location the use of XM-2 expander increase overall controller’s security level significantly.
PRxx2 may operate in autonomic mode or in networked system equipped with CPR control panel
or without it.
Due to complex and wide range of settings which can be defined in controller PRxx2 can not be
programmed manually, it can be programmed from PC computer only. Programming from PC
requires UT-2 communication interface.
Note:
1. In older types of controllers (PRxx1) maximal number of users is 1000. Once the
configuration with number of users > 1000 will be send, users from ID=0 to ID=999 in
will be programmed only.
2. PRxx2 controller can register up to 250 access groups, for older types of controllers (PRxx1)
there are only 31.
3. In case absence of CPR or CPR in OFF mode, PRxx2 controllers are able to collect events
automatically in non volatile 32 000 built-in buffers.

Wiegand reader is connected to Clock and Data lines instead of standard PRT terminal(s). When
controller is configured for operation with Wiegand User ID reader it interprets transmitted digits as
ID number of user which has performed identification, when is set to Wiegand PIN reader
controller interprets transmitted digits as PIN number, when is set to Wiegand Card reader
controller interprets transmitted digits as Card number. The Wiegand User ID mode is generally
dedicated for biometric type readers which does not transmits PINs nor Cards codes but deliver ID
number of user which has made successful identification. When controller is configured to
Wiegand type reader no other extensions modules (XM-2, XM-8 or PSAM1) nor standard PRT
reader can be connected simultaneously to controller's Clock and Data lines. By default Wiegand
reader connected to Clock and Data lines is treated by controller as an ENTRY terminal.
Access zone - select access zone for terminal. Terminal ID1 and ID0 can be assigned to different
access zones.
Default T&A mode - select mode from list which includes all defined T&A modes in system. Feel
free to select T&A mode. You don't have to define Exit T&A mode on Exit reader because location
of reader has no influence on T&A mode. There are four predefined T&A modes: Entrance, Exit,
On-duty exit (ODE) and no T&A (Ignored for T&A). Additionally program enables to add custom
T&A modes adapted to own needs (Tools -> T&A modes).
[#] Key options - when checked [#] key on controller's keypad act as a Door Bell or Door Release
button according to defined time schedule. If Always schedule is chosen then [#] key function as
Door Release (DR), if Never [#] works as Door Bell button. In case different time schedule is
selected then in defined time periods [#] function as DR button, and in time between defined
periods act as Bell button.
Identification mode - select Default Identification Mode of controller which specify normal
identification method for each type of users (Master, Switcher and Normal)
Available options: Card or PIN, Card and PIN, Card only, PIN only. Additionally identification mode
can be automatically switched between ident. modes due to defined schedule. You can define your
own Identification mode schedule (Identification Mode Schedule).
High Security - When this mode is active users must perform two steps identification procedure, a
standard identification (Card/PIN or Card+PIN depending on actual valid identification mode) plus
an additional identification on High Security reader. The High Security reader can be connected to
the same Clock & Data lines which are used for communication with ENTRY/EXIT access terminal
and/or extension modules. Controller accept few types of High Security readers including Wiegand
Card/PIN and WIegand User ID. The Wiegand Card/PIN sends the code of entered PIN or Card,
the Wiegand User ID sends ID number of user which has made identification. The High Security
option can be activated separately for each side of the door and can be controlled by time
schedule. Generally, the High Security option is dedicated for those doors which have to be
protected with advanced identification method (e.g. biometric identification) .

11.5.2.3 Access
Door lock settings (REL1 output) - door lock can be released:
· when authorised user enter identifier,
· by remote command from PC,
· by DR button which can be connected to controller input line or assigned to [#] button.
Door lock is activated for predefined period declared in Lock activation time. Lock activation time
can be set from 1 to 99 seconds or minutes or for undefined period, in last case installer must
select Bistable mode option. When it is selected each time door lock is triggered it moves to
reverse condition (from on to off or inversely). When Auto-relock option is set, lock will be
activated until door contact connected to controller input will indicate that door became open but
not longer than predefined Lock activation time. Lock activation can be disabled when controller
stay in Armed mode, this can be achieved by Access disabled when controller armed option.
This feature is usually used when one of controller output line is dedicated to arm/disarm alarm
zone or intruder sensor only. In this case switching controller to Armed mode will arm alarm
system or alarm zone and automatically will disable access to premises for all users regardless of
access settings.
Facility Code - In some installations all cards used is access system have a common part of card
code, this part of card code is called Facility Code. The Facility Code consist of 8 data bits, those
bits converted to decimal system may give the number from 0 to 255 range. If option is activated
access is granted for those cards which belongs to the same “family” or another words have the
same Facility Code. When Facility Code option is active controller verifies if the card presented

poses the common part of code which is declared as Facility Code and when yes the card is
accepted without full card code verification. This option might be used in system with large number
of users (e.g. student campuses) where access have to be granted for every card which have the
same facility code. The Facility Option may have assigned time schedule and auxiliary control
condition.
The Facility Code can be declared manually or can be retrieved automatically from card. To read
Facility code:
· clicking on
button
· select controller or reader on which you want to read card code
· approach card to controller/reader
Door Mode - Door Mode determines how the controller will energize and de-energize door lock.
As a default door lock stay in Normal Mode but it can be switch to another mode by Door mode
schedules or by remote command. To enable switching due to time schedule check Door Mode
controlled by schedule and select previously defined schedule from menu.
Door lock can be set to few listed below modes of operation:
· Normal - Door lock is activated after controller decide to grant access.
· Unlocked - Door lock is continuously energized, door can be opened by any unauthorized
person.
· Conditional Unlocked - Initially door lock is not energized, but when first authorized person
come and use its identifier lock became energized and remain in this state until new door
mode is set.
· Locked - Activation of door lock is permanently forbidden, no matter if some user has
authorization for access or not, every attempt to open the lock will be rejected.
Card + Card (Two users) - When this mode is active two authorized person must use his/her
identifiers then controller will grant access to controlled door.
This mode can be controlled by [Card+Card] Schedule, selecting schedule Never will permanently
disable this mode where schedule Always will permanently activate it. When together with this
[Card+Card] option the [Card + PIN] mode is active both users must read his/her Cards and enter
his/her PINs otherwise access will be denied.

11.5.2.4 Inputs IN1, IN2, IN3, IN4
Access controller has four input lines. Each of controller inputs (IN1, IN2, IN3 and IN4) has the
identical electrical structure. All inputs are NO/NC type with 5,6 k. resistor pulled up to supply plus.
During setup process installer may configure each input independent as NO or NC. The NO type
input is triggered when connecting it to supply minus. The NC input is normally shorted with supply
minus, when disconnecting it from supply minus it became triggered. Controller ignore triggering
impulses if they are shorter then 200 ms and accept signals that are longer then 500 ms. Detection
of signals between 200 and 500 ms is not guaranteed. Each controller input can be programmed
to different function and may be under control of time schedule. The following input functions are

11.5.2.5 IO1, IO2 Output
IO1 and IO2 output lines
Both lines are open drain N-MOS transistor outputs. Each output can sink up to 1A DC current for
unlimited time. In normal (not triggered) condition both outputs remain in high impedance state,
when triggered they move to low resistance state which results that supply minus is observed on
output. Both inputs are electronically protected from excessive currents and over-voltage. Each
transistor output can be programmed to different function and can be controlled by individual time
schedule.
Each output line may be configured to one of functions listed below:
· No.0: Disarmed Mode - output is activated when controller turns to [DISARMED] mode and
remain active as long as controller remain in this mode.
· No.256: Door Alarm - middle double pulse every 2 seconds after door remains open in a
period of time defined by “Time for door closing”.
· No.8: PC Command controlled - output is activated/deactivated through interactive

11.5.2.6 REL1, REL2 Output
Controller offer two transistor outputs (IO1 and IO2) and two relay outputs (REL1 and REL2). The
REL1 relay output is dedicated to control door lock, the functions of REL2, IO1 nad IO2 can be
assigned during controller's setup.
Relay output (REL1)
The relay output is dedicated to control electric door lock, it offers normally open and normally

closed contacts rating for 1.5A/24V DC or AC.
Both pair of relay contact are protected with over-voltage elements (MOV) which reduce sparks
during switching inductive loads such
electronic locks and thus extends relay contacts life significantly.
A relay output can be set to momentary or Bi-stable mode. When output is setup for momentary
mode it becomes activated for limited period (from 1 second to 255 minutes) and after it returns to
its normal condition. When output is set to Bi-stable mode relay output changes its state to
opposite each time the triggering occurs.
Relay output (REL2)
This relay output can be assigned to different function, it offers normally open and normally closed
contacts rating for 1.5A/24V DC or AC.
Both pair of relay contact are protected with over-voltage elements (MOV) which reduce sparks
during switching inductive loads such
electronic locks and thus extends relay contacts life significantly.
11.5.2.7 Options
Description of available options:
· Enable Arm/Disarm Schedule - when checked Arm/Disarm mode will be automatically
switched according to time schedule. To define schedule open Edit -> Arm/Disarm Schedule
· Ignore DURESS Codes - if enabled controller will not generate alarm when DURESS code
entered.
· Timed lock-out after three wring identifiers - three consecutive attempts of entering an
unknown identifier will cause controller lock-out for about 3 minutes. In this time any
identifications on controller or terminal are not possible.
· Disable Intruder detector input when controller disarmed - the input is inactive when
controller in disarmed mode
· If access denied SWITCHER can't rearm the controller - arm/disarm mode switching is
available only when access is granted.

PR Master 4.2 manual
DURESS CODES - Duress entry - If the user enters his/her PIN code, which differs from its
original form by "one" (plus or minus ), controller interprets it as a duress code entry. When Duress
entry occurs the [DURESS] event is generated and FORCED ENTRY alarm will occur.
Example:
The original code is [4569], entering [4568][#] or [4560][#] is treated as a duress entry.
Note: For proper recognition of duress entry, the PIN codes of individual users should differ one
from each other at least by a
value of +/- [2] on the last significant digit.
The Duress signalisation can be deactivated by PR Master software.
Terminals ID=0 and ID=1 have the same T&A Mode - If option is active events registered on
terminal ID=0 have the same T&A status a as events registered on terminal ID=1 (no matter if
event was registered on terminal ID=1 or ID=0 they have assigned the same T&A status which is
actually assigned for terminal ID=1). Generally, this option is dedicated to situation when controller
is integrated into system which utilize another card standard (e.g. HID, Mifare), in such a
configuration T&A Mode might be changed on controller (using keypad, input line or time
schedule) but identification will be performed on remote Wiegand interface reader connected to
Clock and Data lines.
External modules
· XM-8 module
Controller PRxx2 series may operate with one or two remote XM-8 I/O modules connected via
Clock and Data lines. PRxx2 enable
operation with XM-8 as elevator control interface. The first XM-8 module (address ID=8) is

Networks
83
dedicated to control access to floor 1-8, the
second one (address ID=9) controls access to floors 9-16. Each time a successful
identification is made controller determine to which floors has access particular user then
activate some of XM-8's relays, relays remain active until input line assigned to option Clears
all outputs on XM-8 elevator control module(s) is triggered or until next identification is
accomplished and new set of outputs is activated. The operation with XM-8 module(s) is
activated through option: Enable XM-8 elevator control module(s). All outputs of XM-8 can
be alternatively activated by input line programmed to option: Sets all outputs on XM-8
elevator control module(s).
· XM-2 module
Controller may operate with one external XM-2 I/O module (address=5) connected to controller
via Clock and Data lines. The XM-2 offers
two relay outputs (REL1 and REL2) and two NO/NC inputs (IN1 and IN2). The REL1 output on
XM-2 is activated/deactivated simultaneously with REL1 output of controller, the second
XM-2's output (REL2) is activated/deactivated simultaneously with controller's IO2 output. The
XM-2's inputs are normally ignored but when allowed during controller's setup they can be
used instead of IN1/IN2 inputs located on controller board. Installer may select which input(s)
(local or remote) should be interpreted by controller. Generally XM-2 module is dedicated for
PR302/PR302LCD controllers which normally activate door lock through internal relay, this
relay can be easy accessed by non authorized person. When XM-2 is used, door lock may be
activated not by internal controller's relay but by remote relay output located in secure location,
this increase overall controller's security level significantly. The operation with XM-2 module is
activated through option:
Enable XM-2 remote I/O expander module. The are two additional XM-2 options:
· Ignore IN1 on controller, enable IN1 on XM-2 – controller will use remote (on XM-2) IN1
input instead of local (on controller) IN1,
remote IN1 input will have the same function as assigned previously for local IN1 input,
the electrical signals on controller's IN1
line will be ignored.
· Ignore IN2 on controller, enable IN2 on XM-2 – controller will use remote (on XM-2) IN2
input instead of local (on controller) IN2,
remote IN2 input will have the same function as assigned previously for local IN2 input, the
electrical signals on controller's IN2
line will be ignored.
· PSAM-1 module
Controller may operate with one PSAM-1 power supply alarm module (address ID=4)
connected to controller through Clock and Data lines.
The PSAM-1 is an optional part of power supplies offered by Roger, it delivers following data:
·
·
·
actual DC output level
low battery alert
battery failure alert
Note:
PSAM-1 may operate in autonomic or networked mode, when connected to controller's Clock
and Data lines it should be configured to networked mode with address ID=4.
The operation with PSAM-1 module is activated through option: Enable PSAM-1 power
supply alarm module.

11.5.2.8 Advanced
Anti-passback (APB)
When controller operates together with remote access terminal installer may activate
anti-passback feature. When this feature is active, controller by default should be located on "exit"
side and access terminal on "entry" side of door but this may be changed in Terminal ID1,ID0 tab.
During APB function activity users are obliged to use its identifiers on "entry" and "exit" side
alternately.
There is two types of anti-passback:
· anti-passback hard, (APB Hard)
· anti-passback soft, (APB Soft)
ABP Hard/APB soft mode can be switched according to defined time schedule. If the Always time
schedule is selected then only APB hard will be activated, if Never - APB Soft. In case custom
schedule is selected then in defined time periods APB hard will be active, beyond this periods APB
will switch to Soft mode.
When anti-pasback hard is set, the attempt to use the same identifier two consecutive times on the
same entry or exit point will be rejected and Anti-passback violation event will occur, when
anti-passback soft mode is set an attempt to use the same identifier on the same entry/exit point
will be accepted but [Anti-passback violation] event will be generated. The activity of anti-passback
can be reset (initialized) periodically according to reset schedule or manually (using dedicated
input line, key or keypad command). Right after APB Reset each identifier can be used on entry or
exit side, but after this first Card/PIN entry user must use its identifier alternatively on entry and exit
point. Triggering input line, which is configured to Reset APB function, can do the manual reset of
APB function.
Note:
Location: Entry/Exit of terminal in this case refer to anti-passback function and are not related
to T&A modes.
List of LOCAL SWITCHER users
It's available to define list of LOCAL SWITCHER users (with ID numbers from 999 to 3999) on
every particular controller. Users of this type are allowed to switch controller between
Armed/Disarmed mode. SWITCHER Full and SWITCHER Limited users can not be a LOCAL
SWITCHER, because functions which they perform concerns whole network.
To define Local SWITCHERS:
· click on the Add/Remove Local SWITCHER
· add them to the list using buttons: > and >>
· click OK
Option: Conditional Access
If Conditional Access option is activated then normally unauthorized users have access provided
that somebody is already inside the room (it means that at least one user has status: Logged on
Entry). Attendance of user in room authorize to enter. No matter who is inside, authorized person
or user who has entered thanks to conditional access. To enable option select Always or defined
time schedule. If Conditional Access will be realised on single access point then one of controller's
input lines have to be configured as No.60: Reset APB register.
Real Time Clock Test
When controller is powered up, internal clock is not set. By default option Enable RTC test after

Networks
85
power up is enabled and controller won't start operation until internal clock is properly set. Clock
can be updated automatically in case CPR Control Panel is connected to network or PR Master is
running in Monitoring mode. It can be also carried out manually using command. If RTC test is
disabled and controller's clock is not set device starts up with date: 01 January 2004. In this
situation events are normally registered in buffer but event timestamps are incorrect. It's hardly
recommend to update clock immediately.
Automatic Arming (Auto-arming)
Automatic arming option automatically switch controller to the ARMED mode according to defined
time schedule. Feature allows to specify postponed Auto-arming Delay in case system is not ready
(e.g.room not empty or door not closed), that is, state of appropriate output line indicate that
system is not ready to arm. Postponed delay can be
additionally triggered trough the input line or keypad command. 5 min before auto-arming
controller generate acoustic signal, which informs about turning to Armed mode. It can be disabled
by uncheck Disable buzzer warning before auto-arming option.

11.5.6 Microprocessor Firmware upgrade
Upgrading control software of a device (firmware downloading) is an operation that sends new
version of a control program to the memory of a microprocessor device. This operation is usually
carried out when the device manufacturer releases a new, improved or enhanced version of
firmware. When programming PRxx2 or CPR32-SE new firmware is transmitted via a standard

94
PR Master 4.2 manual
communication lines (lines A and B of the RS485). The firmware downloading can be performed
directly in the access system in which device runs without a necessity of removing it from
installation place. It can be also de-installed and connected via the UT-2 interface to any other PC
computer, in each cases the RogerISP program is required to transmit the new firmware to
downloaded device.
Downloading firmware
Below please find a description of successive steps of the downloading procedure assuming that
the controller is an element of a functioning access control system and the new control software
will be transmitted from the level of the same computer, which manages the access control
system.
· Run the RogerISP program, select the appropriate communication port (the one to which the
UT-2 interface is connected),
· Click on Full Chip Erase, the following communicate will appear:
· Place jumper on FirmwareDownload Mode contacts.
· Press uP Reset button.
· Click OK, after the chip memory erasing operation appropriate communicate will appear:
· should remove jumper from Firmware Download Mode contacts and observe a reaction of the
controller. In case when "device is dead" it means that operation is successful and can
continue with procedure. However when device resume it's work and respond (just like before
erasing) you should repeat erasing operation

· Click on Full programming cycle, following message will appear:
· Place jumper on Firmware Download Mode contacts again.
· Press uP Reset button, then click OK.
· Program will ask you to select HEX type file with new firmware, when selected click on Open,
· The programming process will begin. On the bottom of the Roger ISP window progress of
sending records will show.
· When transmission is finished the following message will appear:
· Remove jumper from FirmwareDownload Mode contacts and click on OK, if controller does
not resume work, it means that programming operation is failed and you should repeat steps
from erasing procedure. However if device resume it's work you can finish flashing process
and exit RogerISP program.
· After new firmware transmitting should configure the device from PRMaster software.
Notes

96
PR Master 4.2 manual
1. Transmission of new software can by carried out to one or more controllers
simultaneously. However, should remember to realize weryfing steps for each device
individually.
2. If successive attempts to flash the device directly in the access system are not successful
(which may result from some disturbances which exists on communication bus), you should
remove the device(s) and connect it directly to the programming computer.

Monitoring
Generally Monitoring is a working mode of PR Master in which events are automatically
downloaded from buffers and displayed in Monitoring window. It means that all events (access
granted, alarm, communication lost etc.) which occur on controllers are illustrated in real time in
PR Master window. Program operator is able to observe situation in whole RACS system and
additionally supervise devices. When PR Master remains in a Monitoring mode, all occurred
events are immediately appended to the system database. Each type of events are distinguished
with different icon and color. Alarm events are additionally indicated in Alarms window.
By default before execute Monitoring mode all events are downloaded from system buffers and are
appended to the database. In some cases operator may want to review in monitoring window
previously occurred events. To realise it: select Tools from main menu of PR Master -> Options
-> Misc -> check option Events downloaded from networks only upon operator's request
(command).

add another subfilter following four previously listed points
Optionally it's possible to set start date and end date. This option allows to review events which
happened later than defined start date and also review events which happened earlier than defined
end date. If both checked then list of events of time period from start date to end date is displayed.
You don't have to activate subfilters when only date settings are required, option works separately.
Example:
·

·
select filter mode AND/OR
specify Active subfilters
click Events and select: Forced entry, Prealarm, DURESS Entrance and Door ajar
click Zones and select: e.g. Zone X and Zone Y
leave date checkbox unchecked
Description:
1. AND mode selected
Events history window will display only this events which fulfill AND condition. It means that
event will be shown in case at least one element from each of active
subfilters will be met. If filter set like in the example Events history will list e.g. Prealarm in
Zone X or Door Ajar in Zone Y events.
2. OR mode selected
Events history window will display only this events which fulfill OR condition. It means that
event will be listed in case one of defined element in active subfilter is
fulfilled. If filter set like in the example, Events history will list all Prealarms, DURESS Entries,
Forced entries, Door ajar and all events in Zone X and Zone Y
events.

Attendance in area report
Attendance in area report is used for calculation of total job hours in defined area. Total
attendance time is calculated on base Entrance (access granted registered on Entry point) and
Exit (access granted registered on Exit point) events.
To generate attendance report:

choose from the main menu Reports -> Attendance
specify time range From/To (date and hour)
select User group
select T&A area (defined by user -Edit -> Attendance)
specify maximal acceptable attendance period (do no set 00:00)
click on Refresh to see applied settings
Attendance report can be printed - Print or saved into formatted (*.rtf) file - Save. It's available to
select type of rtf report:
· Normal (summary attendance in area) - report contains only total attendance time of users
· Detail (summary and detail users attendance in area) - report contains total and detailed
attendance time of users
In case in the Time (hh:mm:ss) field ? sign occurred it means that program hasn't received
Entrance or Exit event. It's recommended to modify it by [View selected] button and enter missing
date and hour.

System with/without CPR
Networked operation with CPR
When PRxx2 type of controller operates in networked system together with other controllers and
CPR control panel, events are continuously transferred from all controllers to CPR internal buffer.
When connection with CPR is broken controllers automatically move to autonomic mode and store
events in theirs internal memory banks, after communication with CPR is restored controllers
return automatically to networked, in both cases controllers retain theirs full functionality (no
functionality is lost or reduced). During normal system operation CPR synchronize real time clocks
of all controllers and stores events which occurred in system. Events stored in CPR and eventually
in controllers’ buffers can be manually downloaded to PC database or will be downloaded
automatically anytime monitoring from PC is started. Older types of controllers PRxx1 series don't
have ability to store events. Devices of this type must operate with control panel. CPR manages
access rights on the PRxx1 controllers and store system events.
The main advantage of networked system equipped with CPR is that events which have been

116
PR Master 4.2 manual
occurred on controllers are instantly transferred to remote “secure” buffer in CPR and that CPR
continuously synchronize clocks on all controllers so even after long time period controllers’ clocks
have the same time.
Networked operation without CPR
When computer is connected to access control system and monitoring window of PR Master is
active, events are continuously transferred from controllers to PC database. When PR Master
operate with monitoring window deactivated, events are stored in controllers’ internal buffers and
can be later transferred to PC using interactive command or will be downloaded automatically
anytime monitoring window is
started.
Main advantages of networked operation with CPR:
· CPR continously collect events and stores in a safe buffer (256 tys. events)
· CPR continously synchronize real time clocks of all controllers (even after long operating time
controllers' clocks have the same time set)
Disadvantages of networked operation without CPR:
· if network is connected trough UT-4 interface, CPR causes additional communication time
delays
· when many access controllers with internal buffers (more than 8) are connected to network,
control panel's buffer is filled much faster.
Note:
1. When controller (PRxx2) detects activity of CPR control panel or PR Master is running in
monitoring mode it moves automatically to networked mode and vice
verso,when no CPR exist in access network or monitoring mode disabled controller moves to
autonomic mode.
2. Utilisation of CPR control panel is optional and depends on system requirements.
