Keeping Track of Your Terminal's Transaction Memory Capacity (Updated Version)

Friday, October 30, 2015 TimeTec 2 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.

    1. Hello Sir,

      Good day to you.

      Alm Superlog is an alert to show you that the data is reaching its full capacity. Hence, please download all the attendance log from the device, and then clear all data in the device. After that, you will need to upload users again to the device.
