Defining Access Cards
Introduction
Access cards are used to enter locked areas or buildings. The access
card definition process defines or limits a card holder’s access to the
facility. For example, one person may be able to enter a building at
any time (unlimited access), while another may only be able to enter
between 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (restricted access).

Key Concepts
Access Cards Summary
The access cards summary displays data on all access cards defined on
the network, regardless of the NCMs or controllers associated with the
cards. Use the access cards summary to add, modify, or delete access
card files.
Note:
If an NC is offline, the cards associated with those devices
do not appear in the summary. When any NCM on the
network is offline, a warning message appears indicating the
offline status before the summary appears.
The access cards summary is organized either by card number or by
last name, depending on the filter selected in the Filter dialog box.
(The summary displays the first 30 cards by number if no filter is
specified.)
Figure 11-1 shows and example of an access cards summary.
Figure 11-1: Access Cards Summary
To find out what access controllers and card readers are defined for
each access card, select Modify Card Data for a selected card.
Operator Workstation User’s Manual
11-3
Table 11-1 details the information provided in each of the access cards
summary fields.
Table 11-1: Access Cards Summary Fields
Field Name
Description
Card ID
Unique number encoded on the card.
Last Name
Last name of the card holder.
First Name
First name of the card holder.
Card Issue Level
Number of times the same access card has been issued.
See Access Control System Objects Technical Bulletin
(LIT-636077).
Exec Privilege
Executive privilege status of the card holder. Executive
privilege allows the user to enter any door controlled by the
IAC-600 system, regardless of the time of day. This privilege
is usually issued to top management and security personnel.
Access Card Definition
Defining an access card involves adding it to the access card database
maintained by the Security NCM. If a card exists that contains similar
data to the new card, copy the card to make the process quicker.
Before attempting to define access cards, read the information below.
•
A password level of 3 or higher is required to define access cards,
and the password must give access to the Access Controller
hardware object that will contain the card data.
•
Each card defined on the network is unique, and is maintained in
the databases of each of its associated NCMs and Access
Controllers.
•
A maximum of 65,535 cards can be defined per network.
•
A runtime version of Superbase 4 software can record additional
information about each card holder. The additional data is linked to
the card record during the card definition process.
•
Use the same archive PC for all security NCMs on the network.
Otherwise, access card data may not be synchronized at every
OWS. Refer to the Using Diagnostics chapter (LIT-120159) to find
out how to define an Archive PC.

Operator Workstation User’s Manual
•
Define the Access Controller (AC) and Card Reader (CR) objects,
as well as the time zones, before defining any access card.
•
To add, modify, or delete an access card the database of the
security NCM, the NCM must be online. If the NCM is offline, its
associated Access Controllers and access cards do not appear. If
any NCM is offline when the access cards summary appears, a
warning message appears indicating that an NCM is offline. (This
NCM may or may not be a security NCM.)
•
Verify that the Access Controller is online before adding an access
card to its database. (If an Access Controller is offline, it is still
listed in the Add Card dialog box; however, access card data added
or modified to an offline controller is not saved.) You cannot
delete an access card from an offline Access Controller. If an
Access Controller is offline when Add Card or Modify Card dialog
box appears, a warning message indicating that an Access
Controller is offline appears.
•
Define at least one Access Controller and one Card Reader for the
card in the Add Card dialog box before adding a card online.

Card Issue Level
Specifies the number of times a particular card has been issued.
The first time a card holder receives a card, the issue level is
zero (0). This allows the card to be replaced, should it be lost,
damaged, or stolen, without redefining a new card number. Only
one issue level of a card can be active at a time. A card can have
up to eight issue levels before a new card must be defined.

Superbase 4 Software
The Superbase 4 program is a database management software package
that maintains certain OWS databases. Superbase 4 software displays
and manages:
• access card user data
• Operator Transaction summaries
• Card Reader Transaction summaries
The Superbase 4 package included in Metasys software is a runtime
version and does not have full Superbase 4 capabilites. For instance,
the runtime version of Superbase 4 can not change screen formats. The
only changes that can be made to any Superbase 4 screen within the
OWS are the four User Definable Data fields in the Employee menu.
To change the screen format in any other way, purchase the full
Superbase 4 package.
Note:
Superbase 4 software is case-sensitive. Develop a standard
format for data entered in Superbase 4 software.
User Data Windows
Use the User Data menus to record additional access card user data
during the card definition process. The data kept in this database is
informational only. It does not affect the operation of the BAS.
To access the User Data menus, click the User Data button in the Add
Card or Modify Card dialog box. Superbase 4 software opens, and a
User Data menu appears. The format of the menus varies depending on
how they are accessed (that is, from the Card Summary-Add Card or
Card Summary-Modify Card dialog boxes).
The Add Record Entry windows appear when the user clicks the User
Data button in the Add Card dialog box. See Figure 11-16,
Figure 11-17, and Figure 11-18 under Defining User Data later in this
chapter.
To specify additional information about a defined card holder, click
the User Data button in the Modify Card dialog box. The Employee
Menu appears (Figure 11-8).
Move from one User Data menu to another by clicking the appropriate
button on the right side of the dialog box. A total of seven different
menus are available: Main menu, Card Reader menu, Vehicle menu,
Badge menu, Employee menu, Identity menu, and Personal menu.
The Last Name, First Name, and Process Group fields are outlined in
red since Superbase 4 software cannot modify them. You can change
the Card ID and Company ID with Superbase 4 software; however,
this will not change the record created in the Add Card dialog box
(Figure 11-2).

Operator Workstation User’s Manual
Photo and Signature Files
Superbase 4 software stores photos and signatures for card holders in
their User Data files.
To import files for the Photo and Signature fields, scan the images into
an electronic file using any scanner that can save a photograph in a
.PCX or .GIF format and a signature in a .TIF format. When saving the
file, be sure to place it in the C:\FMS\STATIC directory.
Superbase 4 software can import pictures into the User Data Photo and
Signature fields regardless of their size; however, if the photo or
signature has to be enlarged or reduced to fit the field correctly, it may
appear distorted. For the best results, the recommended photograph
size is approximately 1.75 x 2 inches (177 x 187 pixels). The
recommended signature size is approximately 2.5 x 0.75 inches
(200 x 55 pixels).
IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that picture files consume a large
amount of memory.
Emergency Files
Use the Emergency field to record instructions to be followed in the
event of an emergency for each card holder (for example, the name,
address, and phone number of the person that should be contacted
should an emergency arise).
Creating Emergency files requires the full Superbase 4 package; to use
this feature with only the runtime version, simply copy and modify the
example file provided. To access this example file (BLANKENG.SBT),
access the Personal menu in Superbase 4 Modify mode. The file
automatically appears in the Emergency field of the Personal menu.
Displaying Access Controllers for an Access Card
Both the Metasys program and Superbase 4 software can list which
Access Controllers and Card Readers are associated with an access
card.
The Metasys program displays a list of all Access Controllers and
Card Readers on the network. An asterisk (*) appears to the left of
those Access Controllers that are defined for the selected access card.
However, if a security NCM is offline, associated Access Controllers
and Card Readers do not appear.
Superbase 4 only lists the Access Controllers and Card Readers
defined for the selected card, regardless of whether or not the
associated security NCM, Access Controllers, or Card Readers are
online.
Operator Workstation User’s Manual 11-17
User Definable Fields Titles
Four of the field titles in the access card User Data windows can be
modified. These fields, called User Definable Fields, allow for the
specification of information not mentioned elsewhere in access card
records, such as the card holder’s job title. Modifying one of the four
field titles for an access card affects the field title for all access
cards.
The User Definable fields are located on page 1 (P-1) of the User Data
Add record, and page 2 (P-2) of the User Data Employee Modify
record.
