Setting the New R2 (FEM565) with R2i/R2c

Friday, June 22, 2012 FingerTec 0 Comments


FingerTec has developed a new FEM565 core board and shipped it with the new batch of R2 terminals. The new FEM565 coreboard is faster, more powerful, and has several added advantages as compared to the previous FEM500 coreboard.

The improved R2 is ready to be paired with the R2c (a new slave terminal to replace the R2i, which is using RS485 cable). However you can still pair the improved R2 with your existing R2i by configuring a few settings.

You will find an option “With R2i – Y/N” (Y to enable R2 to pair with R2i) under Advance Option in the previous R2 terminal.
As for the improved R2 terminal with R2i: Press Menu > Option > Access Option > 485 Reader Fun. > Y or N > Set to N > Save > Restart both the R2 and R2i. If you would like to use the improved R2 with the R2c, you can set the “485 Reader Fun.” and configure to “Y” to activate it.

Keeping Track of Your Terminal's Transaction Memory Capacity

Monday, June 04, 2012 FingerTec 10 Comments

All the FingerTec terminals are equipped with a flash memory to store transaction data, fingerprint templates, face templates, etc. The flash memory is a permanent (non-volatile) storage and it can store data even without the power supply. The FingerTec terminals’ memory capacity varies for each model. Time attendance only terminals have far less transaction storage capacity compared to the multimedia models.

When you perform a successful verification, the terminal will store a transaction log into its memory. The transaction will be stored in the terminal until it is downloaded into our TCMSv2 software, or manually deleted. If you do not download or delete the transaction data after a period of time, the memory’s storage will reach its maximum capacity and the terminal will cease to work or function properly. If you are using a USB flash disk to manage the transaction records, click 
here for further instructions. If you are only using the FingerTec terminal for door access purposes and do not need the transaction data, it is recommended that you perform a housekeeping to ensure that the terminals to continue to work in a tip top condition.

You can set a reminder at the terminal before its memory reaches the maximum capacity. If the configured figure is 99, the terminal will alert users when it reaches its last 99 transaction storage. 


For terminals AC100, TA100, AC900, R2, Kadex : Press Menu > Options > Log Opt > Alm SuperLog / Alm Attlog


Alm SuperLog: to instruct the terminal to alert user if the transaction storage of administrator login is less than the configured figure. The default figure is 99.

Alm AttLog: to instruct the terminal to alert user if the transaction storage is less than the configured figure. The default figure is 99.


For terminals AC100C, TA100C, TA200 Plus, Q2i, I-Kiosk 100, R3, and TA500: Press Menu > System > System > Log Alert



For terminals Face ID 2, Face ID 3: Press Menu > System > Log Setting > Log Alert

For terminal I-kiosk 100 Plus: Press Menu > System 
> Param Setup > Log Alert


Log Alert: To instruct the terminal to alert user if the transaction storage is less than the configured figure. The default figure is 99.
