Click “Add” button underside of the list, display interface is following
Serial Port/ RS 485 Comm.
Fingerprint Reader No.: according to the reader No. to fill, e.g.
fingerprint reader No. is 1
Port: properly select the comm... port to connect PC, the default port is
Baud Rate: Select the same baud rate as the fingerprint reader; the default
value is 38400 at its original setup
Comm. Password: It isn’t need to fill the pass word in the default condition,
if there is a setup password in the fingerprint reader, please input correct password
Name: According to the purpose of equipment, select a observable name
Ethernet Communication
Fingerprint reader IP address: Default address is,
please input the IP address of the fingerprint reader that want connect
Port: the default port is 4370, it isn’t need to change
Communication password and Name is the same configure as Serial Port

obtain all origin parameter, and modify it as need,
Equipment” in the “Application Setup”
last click “ Restart
page , complete the operation.
Note: if use RS232 to communicate, recommend to adopt 115200 Baud Rate,
if use RS 485 to communicate, better to utilize 38400 Baud Rate
2.2 Fingerprint Reader Information
Click “Fingerprint reader info” in the “equipment Management” item,
display interface is following
Click “Read Setup”, the base information of fingerprint reader will be list.
Like following Figure
Click “ Wiegand” in the “Equipment Management”, display interface is
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
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 100µs, 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 µs, can adjust from 200 to
2.4 Verification
Click “Verification” in the “Equipment” item to read setup,
following interface display
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: It is mainly designed for ID card, when you
choose “Yes”, a user directly use ID card to verify enough, to verify doesn’t need
to press fingerprint. When you choose it as “NO”, you must verify fingerprint
after present the card until pass
Only 1:1 Match: This feature is only available that a user own fingerprint,
ID card or Mifare card for verification, can configure “Only 1:1 Match”, if you
choose “Yes” to this setup, must first present a card, and then press fingerprint. If
doesn’t slide a card, there is no reflect to fingerprint in the unit.
Must Register Mifare Card: there are two statuses to register a Mifare card,
if the card was configured to “Must Register”, it is only to verify the user who’s
ID has stored in the fingerprint reader. The no to be store user will not be verify.
When you choose the item as “NO”, no matter there are user’s ID information in
the unit whether or not, it will export as the user and fingerprint template is
verified successfully.

5. F10 Various Card User Guide
F10 offer a Finger user, Card user, Card+ finger etc. Multi-user status.
一、 ID Card User
1、 Enroll ID Card
There are two statuses to enroll ID card.
A、Only Own ID Card Use
It is suit the user who own the higher privilege or the too poor fingerprint to
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.
B、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.
→Connect to Fingerprint Reader with ID Card→Enroll Fingerprint→ Wave Card
→Save ID Number→Upload User fingerprint and Base Info .
2、ID Card Verification Modal
There are following verification modal for ID card user.
A、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 “verification” part of fingerprint reader user manual
to enroll user, the set process is that: Open “ Equipment Management”→ Select
F10 to be “ verification” →Click “ verification”→ Read Setup →Remark on
“Verification No. Card” item to “ Yes”→ Apply Setup.
Notice: There are only “Only Verification ID Card” and “only Performa
1:1 Match” to suit ID card setup in the verification option, the “Card Must be
Registered” just is used for
Mifare user. When you set to verify No. card, the
“Only Performa 1:1 Match” must be remarked as “ NO”, the “ Card must be
Registered” is set by to read the default.
B、 Only Performa 1:1 Match
User must to wave the card near the front of the reader before place the
finger on the sensor to verify until it is
way are
positive answer; this verification
applied to the higher security requirement area, it is optimized for the
a lot of user site, , the set process is that: Open “ Equipment Management”→
Select F10 to be “ verification” →Click “ verification”→ Read Setup →
Remark on “Verification No. Card” item and “ only Performa 1:1 Match” item
to “ Yes”→ Apply Setup.
We suggest adopt this verification method when the F10 store
up 500, because the more are there fingerprint and the more slowly is
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
二、 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.
A、Only verification No. Card
The same as ID card,
verification, in order
it only need to present the card for passing
strengthen security of the application in
the normal
condition the item is set as “ NO”, so and must place the finger to identify after
to present a card to verify .
B、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 “ Yes”, The User ID of Mifare must be store in the reader,
otherwise, it is fail to pass,if this item set as “NO”, it is not need to store user ID
in the reader
to performance the match
