” in the “

Equipment Management

”, display interface is following

Click “

Read Setup

” can to obtain all kinds of wiegand parameter which store in the reader.

Defined Format

: this format has been defined and built in the system; it isn’t need that user define the length of Bit and the location of information. There are four default defined format: wiegand26 with device ID

、 wiegand34 with device ID

、 wiegand26 without device ID

、 wiegand34 without device ID. The wiegand 26 with device ID mean that the W26 output format along with equipment ID and the wiegand26 without device ID point that the W26 output format doesn’t own the unit ID, Here the equipment ID is defined by following: if there is no set of the site code, then it will output machine code. And if the site code has been set, it will output the defined site code (which is similar the machine code, there different is that this code is defined by user and can recycle to


Fingerprint Reader Software Manual use, range is 0-255)

Fail ID

: Export Fail ID after verified is fail, when it has been selected; its output range is 0-65534.

Site Code

: similar the machine code, which different is that this code is defined by user and can recycle to use in different unit, range is 0-255)

Self-define Format:

User define Wiegand output format by he self

Total Bit

: the length of output format

ID begin

: The start location of the ID code in the total bit

ID Bit

: The length of ID code

Pulse Width Time

: the default to send pulse width time is 100

µ s, if the controller isn’t able to receiver the weigand signal, can adjust value from 20 to


Pulse Interval Time

: the default value is 900

µ s, can adjust from 200 to


2.4 Verification

Click “


” in the “


” item to read setup, following interface display


Fingerprint Reader Software Manual

1: N Match Threshold


A predefined number, often controlled by a biometric system administrator, which establishes the degree of correlation necessary for a comparison to be deemed a match. If the score resulting from template comparison exceeds the threshold, the templates are a “match” (though the templates themselves are not identical).the default value is “high”, you can modify it

1:1 Match Threshold

: It mean that match fingerprint threshold after presenting the Card, the default value is “high”.

Only Verification No. Card:

F10 offer a Finger user, Card user, Card+ finger etc. Multi-user status.


ID Card User


Enroll ID Card

There are two statuses to enroll ID card.


Only Own ID Card Use

It is suit the user who own the higher privilege or the too poor fingerprint to identify, reference “

User Management

” part of fingerprint reader user guide to enroll user, the enroll process is that: Add User

Input User Base Info.

Connect to Fingerprint Reader with ID Card

Wave Card

Save ID Number

Upload User Base Info.


User Verified by fingerprint and Card

It is optimized for the general population, user have to enroll the card and fingerprint, there are two way to verify for user, one is to present the card to identify, other way is verification fingerprint after waving card near the properly place of the reader. the enroll process is that: Add User

Input User Base Info.


Fingerprint Reader Software Manual

Connect to Fingerprint Reader with ID Card

Enroll Fingerprint

Wave Card

Save ID Number

Upload User fingerprint and Base Info .


ID Card Verification Modal

There are following verification modal for ID card user.


Only verification No. Card

User only need to wave the ID card has been registered in the unit near the front of the reader or place the finger on the sensor to match for verification, this verification way are applied to the low security requirement area, but it is easy to use, it is optimized for the officer site which own the power public security system, reference “

Fingerprint Reader Software Manual

We suggest adopt this verification method when the F10 store fingerprint up 500, because the more are there fingerprint and the more slowly is F10 matching speed, the FAR (False Acceptance Rate


will be much more, the performing 1:1 match can speed up to identify and keep away fingerprint false acceptance.


Mifare Card User

Enroll Mifare Card

Please reference “

User Management

” part of fingerprint reader user guide to enroll user, the enroll process is that: Add User

Input User Base Info.

Connect to Fingerprint Reader with Mifare Card

Use U.r.U Sensor or fingerprint reader to enroll fingerprint

Write Card via Fingerprint Reader

Wave Card

Write Card Successfully,

The fingerprint can is store in the Mifare card, the result and efficacy of to wave a card is same as the to place finger to identify. Select F10 with Mifare is optimal option for user.

Mifare Card Verification Model

There are following verification modal for Mifare card user.


Only verification No. Card

The same as ID card, it only need to present the card for passing verification, in order strengthen security of the application in the normal condition the item is set as “


”, so and must place the finger to identify after to present a card to verify .


Only Performa 1:1 Match

The same as ID card, first must present card and the place then finger on the sensor, if don’t present the card, the finger will be reject to accept fingerprint

Mifare Card must Register

This item set as “
