Virtual Inputs
A virtual input is an input that exists only in software. You would
never wire to a virtual input. A virtual input can be programmed to
go abnormal based on an event rather than on the change of state of
an input.
Virtual inputs are available for all panel types being used with
Manage, CA450,CA195,CA295,CA495 and CA2000 hosts.
There are 4 categories of virtual inputs and these have undergone an
evolution as a result of customer feedback. Therefore, in the Manage
and CA450 hosts, the virtual input categories, in order are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Forced Door/ Door Open Too Long
Valid Tracked Card
Denied Card
Void Card
Note that the Forced Door and Door Open Too Long alerts are
combined into 1 virtual input in this version. The difference
between a Denied card and a Void Card is that a denied card is
denied based on programming ( i.e. access level or time
schedule), whereas a void card is one that was NEVER
programmed into the system.
There was a large demand to have Forced Door separate from
Door Open Too Long. Continental complied with this demand in
the CA195,295,495 and 2000 programs. With these hosts, the
virtual inputs are as follows. Again, these are listed in order.
1. Forced Door
2. Valid Tracked Card
3. Denied Card/ Void Card
4. Door Open Too Long
These inputs can be used in link programs to fire a relay in response
to one or all of these categories on a per door basis. This could be
used to sound a horn for a forced door or trip a camera for a denied
card.

Virtual inputs are mapped differently on each type of panel, and in
the case of the Smarterm, depends on the number of expansion
boards that are connected to the panel.
The following table shows the virtual input mapping for a Smarterm

Input 81 is Always reserved as the Tamper input.
Virtual inputs are lost if a 4th expansion board is added.
Virtual Inputs are fixed on the Superterm starting with input 49

If more than 1 expansion board is added, virtual inputs are lost .
Virtual Inputs are also fixed on both the Miniterm and the Microterm
starting with input # 17.

Virtual Inputs are a very powerful and effective programming tool
and can be used to solve a great deal of cardaccess problems. For
