NEW FEATURES AND UPDATES
1. Webster & TimeTec Enabled
The firmware is updated with the Webster & TimeTec function. This will enable the terminal to be compatible with Webster & TimeTec. However the terminal cannot be immediately used with Webster or TimeTec. Users will need to register with FingerTec and we will provide you with a firmware to update the terminal upon registration. For steps on how to obtain the TimeTec firmware, please refer to the FingerTec Technical Newsletter (http://www.fingertectips.com/2011/11/fingertec-timetec-trial-version.html) for more information.
Model Involved: TA100, TA103R, Timeline 100, TA100C, AC100, AC100C, I-Kiosk 100 (FEM 600), I-Kiosk 100 Plus (FEM 600), Q2i & TA200 Plus (FEM 600), M2 and R2
2. Different USB data output for both Black & White Screen Model and Multimedia Model.
We have recently released a new fingerprint algorithm, BioBridge VX10.0. (http://www.fingertec.com/newsletter/Aug2011/FN-01.html) As you may already know, the new algorithm speeds up the fingerprint verification process of the terminal and it maximizes the fingerprint templates capacity to 10,000 for any multimedia model with FEM 600 core board only.
With the new firmware, you may transfer the fingerprint templates using the USB pen drive directly into another terminal. To transfer the fingerprint templates using the USB pen drive, go to the Pen Drive Management at the terminal, insert the pen drive and select Download User. After the download is completed, remove the pen drive and insert to the other intended terminal. Go to the Pen Drive Management and select Upload User.
The FingerTec black and white display terminals only supports fingerprint BioBridge VX 9.0 algorithm. You can transfer fingerprints using the USB pen drive among the black and white display terminals but not to the multimedia terminals, which runs on the BioBridge VX 10.0 algorithm. To upload BioBridge VX9.0 algorithm fingerprint templates to a multimedia terminal, you will have to configure the multimedia terminal into BioBridge VX 9.0 algorithm before you can proceed with the transfer. In event that you would like to enroll the fingerprint using a multimedia terminal and later transfer the fingerprint template to a black and white display terminal, you will need to configure the multimedia terminal into BioBridge VX 9.0 before you start to enroll the fingerprint.
Please take note that the BioBridge VX10.0 algorithm cannot be mixed and matched with fingerprint templates from BioBridgeVX9.0 algorithm. The templates derived from the BioBridge VX9.0 will prompt an error during the verification period if it were uploaded to the terminal via the BioBridge VX10.0 or vice versa.
Model Involved: TA100C, AC100C, I-Kiosk 100 (FEM 600), I-Kiosk 100 Plus (FEM 600) and Q2i & TA200 Plus (FEM 600).
3. Customized External Siren’s Minimum Ring Period To 30 Seconds.
The FingerTec TA100C and TA200 Plus model comes with an external siren or a scheduled bell feature. Configuration of time settings can be done in terminal prior to connecting it to any bell system with an independent power supply. Once the time is configured, the terminal would trigger the bells at the specific times.
From the previous firmware, we know that external siren’s minimum ring period is 15 seconds. With the new firmware, we change the external siren’s minimum ring period to 3 seconds.
To set configure the external siren’s ring period setting, please press Menu > System > Misc Set > Bell.
Model Involved: TA100C and TA200 Plus.
