Introduction

            For some sites it may be necessary to setup the Intelli-Site software for Compass panels to use Magstripe /Clock and Data. 

Procedure

Follow these steps:

  • Once the format has been determined, the card number mask can be defined in the card config tab of the Compass RTU.
     
                                                                                                            (Figure 1)
    • As shown in Figure 1, the ID field must be set to "254",  and the bit count field to the total length of the data on the track to be read.
    • The Name field is for reference only and can be anything, though it should be descriptive.
    • The Data Mask field describes the data format to be considered for each card read. A capital "C" signifies card number data, while an "*" is a digit to be ignored. for example:
      • IF the card contains a string like "12345=67890" and the Data Mask is defined as "CCCCC*CCC**" the card number would be interpreted as  as "12345678".
    • Parity Mask 1, 2, and 3 should all be defined as all "*" characters.
    • Here is an example of a completed format for a card with 13 characters:
      .
                                                                                                                          (Figure 2)
  • Once completed, save the format and apply the changes to the RTU
  • On the RTU tab of the RTU properties, set the Reader Type to Clock and Data.

                                                      (Figure 3)
  • Repeat these steps for each RTU.
  • Finally, update the "Carddata" screen to include the magstripe option for CardFormat as shown:

Note: Panels can be Clock and Data or Wiegand, but not both. It is not possible to have Wiegand readers and Clock and Data readers on the same panel.
