1-Application Function Description 

Access control is required for personnel entering and exiting designated areas. Administrators can remotely view real-time personnel data within the area and calculate the total number of people via 701ClientSQL. This effectively enhances the safety management of personnel within the area.

  • Remote counting of personnel who have not left the designated area within the specified time, including generating a list of names and quantities, and exporting record files to enhance personnel safety management.
  • Installation of subtitle machines at entrances and exits as required to display the user's address and name of entering and exiting personnel in real-time.
  • Installation of subtitle machines as required to display the total number of personnel within the area.
  • Equipped with a reset button for the person count, allowing management personnel to reset the count easily for each session of personnel counting.
  • The on-site access control follows the one-in-one-out control policy, effectively preventing unauthorized entry into the controlled area.
    (This means that access is only granted if the sequence of entry and exit follows the "in → out → in → out" principle.)
  • Facial and fingerprint data can be collected by one of the on-site controllers and remotely read and written to multiple controllers via TCP/IP communication by the software. There is no need to register repeatedly on each controller on-site.
  • Customizable time periods for checking and resetting the person count, automatically checking the number of people within the area, and triggering alarms automatically (optional).

3-Operation Instructions 

3-0. Architecture Planning

Before starting the operation, it is strongly recommended to draw a planning architecture diagram based on the site requirements. The main purposes are as follows:

  1. Avoiding IP or station number duplication:
    Inventory the available station numbers and IP locations on site in advance and allocate them to the equipment. This helps to avoid errors caused by duplicate configurations and saves additional troubleshooting time.
  2. Enhancing troubleshooting speed:
    Site personnel can quickly understand the site status based on the architecture diagram and systematically troubleshoot anomalies, thereby accelerating the troubleshooting process.
  3. Easy expansion and maintenance of the architecture:
    Whether it is regular equipment maintenance or equipment expansion after scaling, the system status can be quickly checked and evaluated based on the architecture diagram.

The diagram below illustrates the architecture used in this example:

3-1. Confirming Software Version 10v5 or later

Please confirm whether the software versions for 701ServerSQL and 701ClientSQL are 10v5 or later. After opening the software, click on the "About" option in the help menu to display the current version of the software.

  

*Note: Before upgrading to 701ServerSQL and 701ClientSQL, please back up your existing data. For detailed instructions, please refer to the ▶701ServerSQL & 701ClientSQL Installation Guide

3-2.Firmware Update and Basic Parameter Configuration

3-2-1. AR-716-E16 Station Number Setting and Firmware Update

AR-716-E16 Manual

Step 1: Setting the Station Number

How to set the station number for AR-716-E16 using the dip switches?

Station Number = Sum of the setting values where the dip switches are ON.

Below the dip switches, there are numbers 1 to 8, representing the respective setting values (see the table below). When the dip switch is ON, it means that its designated value should be included in the calculation.

For example, if the station number is 30, it is equal to the sum of setting values 2, 4, 8, and 16. Therefore, dip switch numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5 should be ON, while the rest should be OFF.

Step 2: Updating the Firmware

Firmware Name: APS721Ev2__V0405_230526 人流字幕機顯示 站號1~4進5~8出.STM (或之後版本)

For detailed firmware update instructions, please refer to the following: ▶UDP UPDATER Manual

3-2-2. AR-725-E Station Number, Phone Number, and Enable One In One Out Setting

Step 1: Set the station number and gate number. For detailed instructions, please refer to the ▶AR-725-E Manual (P.5 Station Number Change Command)

Step 2: Enable the "one in, one out" function and specify it as either an entrance gate or an exit gate. For detailed instructions, please refer to the  ▶AR-725-E Manual (P.6 One In, One Out Control Button Command)

3-2-3. AR-837-EA/EF Station Number, Phone Number, and IP Configuration

Both of these devices are screen display controllers, and you can directly set them up through the menu list in editing mode. 

For detailed configuration instructions, please refer to the ▶AR-837-EA Manual and ▶AR-837-EF Manual complete menu of available commands for all functions.

3-2-4. Subtitle Machine Station Number Setting (Optional)

Step 1: Set the station number of the "Visitor In" display subtitle machine to 001.

Step 2: Set the station number of the "Visitor Out" display subtitle machine to 002.

Step 3: Set the station number of the "Total Visitors Inside" display subtitle machine to 003.

3-3. Equipment Wiring

Connect the devices according to the planned architecture.

*All card machines (including AR-837-EA/EF) should be connected to AR-716-E16 with a common ground connection. For a complete description of the connection points, please refer to the▶AR-716-E16 Manual

âNote 1: The biometric-based controller under this architecture must be connected to two types of communication simultaneously:

(1) TCP/IP communication of the controller itself:

   Remote reading and writing of facial and fingerprint recognition data, eliminating the need for repeated registration on individual controllers.

(2) Wiegand Port of AR-716-E16:

Unified management of access control for personnel by AR-716-E16.

âNote 2: When Fire-ALM contacts are connected in common ground, the access status of all personnel can be reset.

âNote 3: The station numbers for Wiegand Port are fixed as 1 and 2. When Wiegand Port and RS485 are both connected to the card reader, the station numbers for RS485 card readers start from 003.

3-4. Equipment Connection and Function Parameter Configuration

3-4-1 Equipment Connection

Step 1: Open 701ServerSQL and click on "COM" to select the area and connection method.

*Step 1: Open 701ServerSQL and click on "COM" to select the area and connection method.

Step 2: Open the [LAN] page, check the device station number, and fill in the controller's IP address and controller name sequentially.

Step 3: Click on the [Line] page to confirm if the device is correctly connected

Further reading: Why is the controller connection status not displayed on the Line page in multi-door controllers?

RS485 CH1: You need to check the station number in the parameter setting page of AR-716-E16, save it, and write it to the card reader.

Wiegand Port: The card readers under Wiegand Port do not display the connection status, so there is no need to check the station number.

Note: The sub-nodes (station numbers) for Wiegand Port are fixed as 1 and 2. When both Wiegand Port and RS485 are connected to the card reader, the sub-nodes for RS485 start from 003.
