1 Instruction for Use
Thank you for using our Black-and-White (B&W) screen series Fingerprint Recognition Terminal (FRT).
Please read this manual carefully before using this product for a comprehensive understanding so as to avoid
causing unnecessary damage to the product.
Protect the FRT from exposure to direct sunlight or strong light beams as strong light beams greatly affect the
fingerprint collection and leads to fingerprint verification failure.
Avoid using the FRT outdoors in summer. The working temperature of B&W screen series ranges from 0–40C.
The heat dissipated during long-term operation may easily lead to response slowdown and a decrease in
verification pass rate. It is recommended to use sunshades and heat sink devices for protection of the FRTs
outdoors. We recommend you to use the FRT properly in order to achieve the optimal recognition effect and
verification speed.
1. Install a B&W screen FRT and then enroll your fingerprint for comparison.

2. Recommended fingers
Recommended fingers: The index finger, middle finger or the ring finger; the thumb and little finger are not
recommended (because they are usually clumsy on the fingerprint collection screen).
3. Finger Placement
1) Proper finger placement:
The finger is flat on the surface and centered in finger guide.
2)Improper finger placement:
Not flat on the surface
Off-center

 Note:
Please enroll and verify your fingerprint by using the proper finger placement mode to avoid degradation of
verification performance due to improper operation. We reserve all rights for the final interpretation and
modification of these rules.
4. LED Colors and their meanings
B&W screen FRT works normally: The green LED blinks once every other second.
Verification fails: The red LED is solid on for 3 seconds.
Verification succeeds: The green LED is solid on for 3 seconds.
 Note:
If the LED display is inconsistent with the above conditions, please contact our technical
personnel.

2 Basic Concepts
This section introduces the definitions and descriptions of the following basic concepts:





User Enrollment
User Verification
Match Threshold
User ID
Authority Class
The most important two functions supported by B&W screen series are User Enrollment and Verification.
2.1 User Enrollment
A user can enroll up to 10 different fingerprints using one ID number to have multiple verification selections.
Theoretically, all the fingers of a user need to be enrolled so that the user can still perform fingerprint matching
even if one or more of his/her fingers get cut or damaged. Generally it is recommended that a user enroll at
least two fingerprints, for example the index fingers of both hands so that the user can use any of the enrolled
fingerprints for recognition, even if he/she forgets which fingerprint has been enrolled.
2.2 User Verification
When a user presses his/her finger on the fingerprint reader, the B&W screen FRT compares the newly
scanned fingerprint with a fingerprint stored in template. The fingerprint template is used to check the user
fingerprint. If a user enrolls his/her fingerprints on an FRT, the user can keep attendance records on this FRT
through fingerprint verification which takes about 2 seconds. Upon verification, the system displays a prompt
indicating whether the verification succeeds or not then stores the successful matching record in the B&W
screen FRT.
2.3 Match Threshold
The Match Threshold is set to achieve a trade-off between the possibilities of false rejection and false
acceptance. The false acceptance means the fingerprint recognition device mistakes the fingerprint of user A
for that of user B, while the false rejection means the fingerprint recognition device refuses to recognize an
enrolled fingerprint.
You can set a match threshold for all users. For fingerprints that fail to pass the verification, you can adopt the
“ID + Fingerprint” verification mode (that is, 1:1 match) so that the system adopts the data set in 1:1 match
threshold when matching the fingerprints.
If a user’s fingers are severely worn out or damaged, lower the match threshold (see Table 3-1).
 Note:
The false acceptance rate (FAR) and false rejection rate (FRR) mutually influence each other.
Reducing the FAR will increase the FRR, and vice-versa. The default match threshold is 35 and the
default 1:1 match threshold is 15. Table 3-1 lists the settings of match thresholds in different scenarios.

2.4 User ID
When enrolling fingerprints, a user will be allocated with an unused ID. When the user starts to verify his/her
identity, this ID is used to associate the fingerprint feature template.
You can enter the ID through the mini keyboard or other storage means like the RF card (the fingerprint
recognition device must be configured with the RF card reader).
2.5 Authority Classes
The B&W screen series FRTs include four authority classes:
Users: refer to those who are required to verify their identity for a purpose, like opening the door through the
B&W screen FRT or keeping their entry/exit records, for example.
Administrators: refer to the users who are granted the right to enroll or delete users.
2.6 Main Interface
The first interface displayed on the screen upon equipment power-on is referred to as the “Initial Interface”, as
shown in the following figure.

Prompts for successful enrollment
 Note:
To enroll a new user, you must have the authority of administrator. For details, see 2.5Authority
Classes
3.1 Enroll User
Everyone can enroll 10 fingerprints on a device, including one register fingerprint (e.g. 00098-0) and nine
backup fingerprints (e.g. 00098-1~00098-9).
If no administrator has been enrolled, any user has the right to enroll a new user. If an administrator has
already been enrolled, you can only enroll a new user after passing the administrator verification.
The RFT supports two enrollment modes; fingerprint and ID or Mifare card. Fingerprint enrollment mode
applies to the majority of the general public with good quality fingerprints.
If an administrator has already been enrolled, you need to verify the administrator identity by pressing MENU.
The system then prompts you to swipe your finger for administrator verification.
 Note: If no administrator has been enrolled, administrator verification is not required.

The ID card or Mifare card verification is an optional function. To customize an ID / Mifare
card-capable FRT, please consult our commercial representatives or pre-sale technical support
engineers.
3.2 Check Enrollment Effect
After enrolling a fingerprint, you need to verify its validity by placing your corresponding finger properly on the
initial interface of the FRT. If the FRT recognizes your fingerprint successfully, it proves that your fingerprint is
clear and recognizable; otherwise, you need to re-enroll your fingerprint or use another finger for enrollment. If
it still does not work, it proves that your fingerprints are not suitable for recognition and you need to adopt the
fingerprint and password verification mode.
3.3 Verification Modes
3.3.1 Fingerprint Verification
You can adopt 1:N matching modes for fingerprint identification.
In the 1:N fingerprint matching mode, the FRT compares the current fingerprint collected through the
fingerprint reader with all the fingerprints stored in the FRT.
201 Circle Drive N, Suite 116 Piscataway, NJ 08854 Tel: 732-412-6007 Fax: 732-412-6008
www.zkaccess.com
Operation steps:
Place your finger on the initial interface to display the following interface:
FP Verify
Remove Finger
If the verification succeeds, the system will generate a voice announcement “Thank you!” after the above
interface is displayed for 0.5 seconds then the following interface will be displayed:
Verify
User ID: 00998
Verified!
If the verification fails, the system will generate a voice announcement “Please try again!” and display the
following interface:
FP Verify
Please Try Again.
After the above interface is displayed 0.5 seconds, the system will return to the initial interface.
3.3.2 Verification Through Card Swiping
If you have your ID card number enrolled in the system, you can pass the verification by properly swiping your
ID card at the swiping area.
3.4 Prompts for Successful Enrollment
A high fingerprint enrollment quality assures quick verification speed, while a poor fingerprint enrollment
quality may easily lead to false rejection and slow verification.
To enhance the quality of enrolled fingerprints, refer to Table 4-1
Common Causes of Enrollment Failure or Poor Fingerprint Quality
Finger is too dry or
dirty
Rub your fingers against your palm because rubbing yields oil.
Moisturize your finger by breathing on it.
Apply insufficient
pressure
Apply pressure lightly and evenly during the capturing process.
Select fingers for
enrollment
Left and right index fingers or middle fingers are recommended.
Select the fingers without worn-out or damaged fingerprints.
Users usually select their index fingers, but if their index fingers do not have high
fingerprint quality, they can select their middle fingers or ring fingers.
For users with small fingers, they can opt for their thumbs. To enroll spare
fingerprints, users can select fingers not prone to wear-out or damage, for
example, the ring fingers.
Finger placement
Press your finger flatly on the fingerprint sensor and be sure that the pad (not the tip)
covers as much of the sensor window as possible. Do not press your finger
perpendicular to the fingerprint sensor; do not knock your finger on the sensor
201 Circle Drive N, Suite 116 Piscataway, NJ 08854 Tel: 732-412-6007 Fax: 732-412-6008
www.zkaccess.com
quickly; keep your finger still.
Impact of the
fingerprint image
change
The change of fingerprint image due to skin peeling-off or injury will affect the
verification performance.
If the fingerprint quality of a user is poor due to the skin peeling-off and the user
cannot pass the verification one week later, the user needs to re-enroll his/her
fingerprint or adopt the password verification mode.
Other causes
There may be a small amount of people who cannot pass the verification no matter
how hard they try due to very poor fingerprint quality. In that case, you can adopt
the ID + fingerprint verification mode, appropriately lower the 1: 1 match threshold
or adopt the password verification mode.
3.5 Administrator Enrollment
The B&W screen FRT provides administrator settings to prevent unauthorized users from changing system
data and ensure system security. The operations on administrator settings are as follows:
1) The brand new FRT does not assign any administrator, so you can press Menu to access the system

9 FAQs
Question: How do I address the problem of some employees failing to pass the fingerprint verification
more often than not?
Answer: The following factors will make fingerprint verification hard or even impossible for some employees:
. The fingerprints of some fingers wear out.
. The fingers have too many wrinkles that change frequently.
 The skin on the fingers peels off badly.
For users whose fingerprints are beyond recognition, they can delete these fingerprints and enroll them again
or enroll a fingerprint of another finger.
It is recommended to select fingers with good fingerprint quality (few wrinkles, no peeling and distinct
fingerprint) for fingerprint enrollment. Press the finger flatly on the fingerprint sensor and be sure that the pad
(not the tip) covers as much of the sensor window as possible. Perform fingerprint match test after finishing
enrollment. It is recommended to enroll the fingerprints of several fingers as backup.
Question: What are the possible causes of FRT communication failure?
Answer: The possible causes are listed as follows:
 The communication port setting is incorrect. The port set for communication is not the COM port actually
used.
 The communication port baud rate setting of the PC is not consistent with that of the FRT.
 The FRT is not connected with the power supply or the PC.
 The FRT is connected with the PC but not powered on.
 The No. of the connected terminal is incorrect.
 The data cable or converter is faulty.
 The COM port of the PC is faulty.
Question: What are the possible causes of incomplete display (sometimes half-screen display) or
blurred screen after the FRT is powered on? How can it be fixed?
Answer: The possible causes are listed as follows:
 The main board is faulty.
 The LCD display is faulty.
In either of the above cases, you need to contact the supplier and return the FRT for repair.
Question: How can I delete an FRT administrator?
Answer: Connect the FRT with a PC and establish communication between them. Select the FRT
management tab, and click Delete Administrator to delete the FRT administrator. You can access the FRT
menu after disconnecting the FRT with the PC.
Question: Why is there a beep sound during the communication between FRT and PC?
Answer:
If the beep sound occurs in RS-485 communication mode, it is possible that the two communication cables of
the converter are inversely connected or stuck together.
Question: Why does the FRT constantly display “Please press (remove) your finger again”? How can
it be fixed?
Answer: The possible causes are as follows:
201 Circle Drive N, Suite 116 Piscataway, NJ 08854 Tel: 732-412-6007 Fax: 732-412-6008
www.zkaccess.com
 There is dirt, grease or a scratch on the surface of the fingerprint sensor, which may lead the fingerprint
sensor to mistakenly think that there is a finger pressing on the surface. Remove the dirt or grease on the
surface of the fingerprint sensor with adhesive tape.
 The connection cable of fingerprint sensor comes loose or disconnected.
 The chip of the main board is faulty.
For the last two cases, contact the supplier and return the FRT for maintenance.
Question: Why does a failure or error occurs when I read the attendance data while I can download
fingerprint and password data properly? How can it be fixed?
Answer: This problem may relate to the data cable, converter or the COM port setting of the PC. You may try
decreasing the baud rate of the PC and FRT, for example, set it to 19200 or 9600 before reading the
attendance data again.
10 Appendix
The functions described in Appendix are all optional. If you need FRTs that support these functions, please
consult our commercial representatives or pre-sales technical support engineers.
10.1 SD Card
SD Card Host
The FRT is used as the SD Card Host to externally connect with an SD Card pen drive for data exchange.
The conventional fingerprint readers transfer data only through the RS232, RS485 or Ethernet. Bulk data
transfer may take a long time due to the restriction of physical conditions. The SD Card far outperforms any
other previous transfer modes in terms of data transfer rate. Insert the SD Card pen drive in the SD Card slot
on the FRT, download data to the USB pen drive, and then connect the SD Card pen drive to a computer to
import the data to the computer. For the operations of the FRT used as the SD Card host, see 5 SD Card
Management ★.
10.2 ID Card, Mifare Card 
To accommodate the market demand for the currently popular RF cards, we have developed the FRT with
built-in non-contact RF EM card reader module. This FRT supports multiple verification modes including the
fingerprint verification and card verification to meet the diversified customer needs.
ID Card
The FRT supports ID cards with working frequency of 125 KHz and card reading distance of 2m to 5m.
Mifare Card
The FRT supports MIFARE non-contact smart cards with working frequency of 13.56 MHz and card reading
distance of 3m to 5m.
For the operations of the Mifare cards, see Mifare Card User Guide.
10.3 Master-Slave Function ★
Two devices, a master and a slave, both controlling the same lock, are connected by RS232/RS485/Wiegand.
1. The Applications of the Master and the Slave
1) Record storage:
By default, the master status is exit and the slave status is entry. The records of entry and exit are both saved on
the master.
2) Anti-Pass back function:
201 Circle Drive N, Suite 116 Piscataway, NJ 08854 Tel: 732-412-6007 Fax: 732-412-6008
www.zkaccess.com
Whether to perform the anti-pass back function is determined by the latest record of the user's entry and exit.
With this function, the exit record must match the entry record. The function supports "Out", "In", "In Out",
"None and save " or "None" anti-pass back. By default, the identification status of the master is exit and that of
the slave is entry, so if " out anti-pass back " has been set and when the last record of the user's entry is not
"entry", the system will prompt anti-pass back refusal" and refuse to open the door if the user wants to exit.
The logic is the same with "out anti-pass back" and " in out anti-pass back".
For example, now A wants to exit.
① If the last record for A is not entry, the device will prompt anti-pass back refusal and refuse to open the
door.
② If the last record for A is entry, after the fingerprint identification is passed, the device will open the door.
3) Alarm function
If the slave is equipped with alarm function (e.g. F10), when an alarm incident occurs, the slave will forward it
to the master to process. This function is not available on devices not equipped with alarm function.
2. The Connection of the Master and the Slave
Currently, three modes-RS232, Wiegand and RS485 are applicable for the connection of the master and the
slave. Of the three, RS232 is less often used due to its short connection distance. For example, it can be used
when the master and the slave are just installed respectively inside and outside a door. Its connection
principle is similar to that of RS485, which is omitted here. The Wiegand connection is widely used, most of
whose devices on the market are applicable to the master and the slave. RS485, whose transmission
distance is great (however it is recommended that the distance should not be over 600 meters), applies to
most occasions, but the slave must be equipped with the inBIO reader (which is used for collecting fingerprint
or swiping card).
If Wiegand connection is to be used, the connection and setting for anti-pass back are as follows:
1) Select model:
Master machine: Machine with Wiegand in function, except for F10 Reader.
Slave machine: Machine with Wiegand Out function.
2)Master-slave menu setting:
This machine supports out, in, out-in, No, No and saved anti-pass back (enter Menu -> setting -> system
setting -> advanced setting -> anti-pass back).
3) Modify device’s Wiegand output format:
If the two devices are communicating, only Wiegand signals without device ID can be received. Enter device
Menu -> Comm. Opt -> Wiegand option or enter software: Basic setting -> device management ->
Wiegand, to modify “defined format” as “wiegand26 without device ID”.
4) Enroll user:
The user must be on master machine and slave machine at the same time, and user PIN must be the same.
Therefore, it is necessary to enroll user on master machine and slave machine at the same time.
5) Connection instruction:
201 Circle Drive N, Suite 116 Piscataway, NJ 08854 Tel: 732-412-6007 Fax: 732-412-6008
www.zkaccess.com
Wiegand communication is adopted for master machine and slave machine. Refer to the following for
connection:
Master
Slave
IND0
<----->
WD0
IND1
<----->
WD1
GND
<----->
GND
If RS485 connection is to be used, the connection and setting for anti-pass back are as follows:
The mode of RS485 is a new application in the connection of the master and the slave. In this mode, user
information, fingerprint verification, card verification and authority verification are all processed on the master
and the slave is only used as a collector. Therefore, the software only needs to manage user information and
record information on the master.
1) Choosing devices:
The master: It must have the 485 communication function (upgrade firmware required).
The slave: It must use the inBIO readers (reader only responsible for collecting fingerprint, such as F11 and
SR200).
2) Setting the menu on the master:
Setting the master:
①Access Menu>Settings>System Settings>Advanced Settings>Anti-pass back. The setting can be "Out",
"In", "In Out", "None and save " or "None".
②Access Menu>Settings> Access Options>485 reader. If "Yes" is chosen, the master and slave function of
485 mode is started and at the same time the communication function with PC is forbidden. If "No" is chosen,
the machine runs the normal communication function of PC.
Setting the slave:
Set the device number identical to the master.
3) Connecting the master and the slave
The master and the slave are for RS485 communication, whose connection is shown as in the figure:
Master
Slave
485+
<----->
485+
485-
<----->
485-
GND
<----->
GND
3. The Use of the Master and the Slave
After the devices are started, the master works the same as common access control. The slave cannot verify.
When a fingerprint is pressed or a card is swiped on the slave, the indicator will blink and "click, click" will
sound and the verification result will be displayed on the master.
10.4 Wiegand Protocol
Wiegand26 is an access control standard protocol established by the Access Control Standard Subcommittee
affiliated to the Security Industry Association (SIA). It is a non-contact IC card reader interface and output
protocol.
Wiegand26 defines the interface between the card reader and controller used in the access control, security
and other related industrial fields. Wiegand26 helps standardize the work of the card reader designers and
controller manufacturers. The FRT is also designed in compliance with Wiegand26.
Digital Signals
Figure 1 is a sequence diagram in which the card reader sends digital signals in bit format to the access
controller. In this sequence diagram, Wiegand follows the SIA’s access control standard protocol for the 26-bit
Wiegand card reader (one pulse time ranges between 20us and 100us, and the pulse jump time ranges
between 200us and 20ms). Data1 and Data0 are high level (larger than Voh) signals till the card reader

prepares to send a data stream. The asynchronous low-level pulse (smaller than Vol) generated by the card
reader is sent to the access control panel (The saw-tooth wave as shown in Figure 1) through Data1 or Data0.
Data1 and Data0 pulses will neither overlap nor be generated synchronously. Table 1 lists the maximum and
minimum pulse widths (a consecutive pulse) and pulse jump time (time between pulses) allowed by the F
series fingerprint access control terminal.

Wiegand Format
The Wiegand format adopted by the FRT is the universal access control protocol.
26-Bit Wiegand Format
The composition of the open de facto 26 Bit Weigand industry standard contains 8 bits for the facility code and
16 bits for the ID number field. Mathematically, these 8 facility codes allows for a total of just 256 (0 to 255)
facility codes, while the 16 ID number bits allow for a total of only 65,536 (0 to 65,536) individual ID's within
each facility code.
26-Bit Wiegand format is of 26 bits in length, including 2 bits for parity bits.

Pyramid Wiegand format
Several alternatives exist for customers who require more codes. The first is to switch to Keri’s standard 39 bit
Pyramid format. This 39 bit Wiegand format contains 17 bits for the facility code field and 20 bits for the ID
number field. Mathematically these 17 facility code bits allow for a total of 131,072 (0 to 131,071) facility codes,
while the 20 ID number bits allow for a total of 1,048,576 (0 to 1,048,575) individual ID’s within each facility
code. Since there are so many facility codes in the Pyramid format, a new facility code may be selected for
each project. Additionally the large number of ID’s per facility code makes the Pyramid format ideal for very

large projects. For added security, Keri Systems tracks credential coding to ensure that no duplication occurs.

Custom Wiegand Formats
The second alternative is to create a custom Wiegand format. Typically, up to 64 bits are available for creating
a custom Wiegand format. With certain limitations, formats with greater than 64 bits may be created. If a
customer currently has a custom Wiegand format from Wiegand or from other proximity manufacturers, Keri
can normally match that format. Although the customer is primarily responsible for custom format card coding,
as an added benefit Keri Systems tracks card coding for additional security. Table 4 provides an example of
one possible custom Wiegand format.
