Checkmate XT - Cost Effective Multi Door Access Controller and Monitoring Panel

Checkmate XT is the Next Generation Multi-door Cost Effective Access Controller .It manages upto 4 Proximity Smart Card Reader (Weigand Compatible) installed at various doors in an organization .The low cost ,small ,attractively packaged front end Readers are connected to the Controller in a Star Connection and the Lock release output is driven from the Controller itself. Hence no intelligent hardware is required at the door end.
Checkmate XT provides a field configurable intelligent Engine for taking care of any organization’s access control requirement .The controller can be configured using a Software Front-end ,COMPRO XP. Once the Checkmate is configured, all the Access Control decisions are taken by the controller making it truly a standalone system independent of PC application .It can be used in an on-line mode for larger PC Controlled Facility Management/Building Automation System.
Multiple Checkmate XT’s can be networked on a RS485 bus or on a Ethernet Network with suitable hardware for larger applications.


Card Reader Technology :
One of the following type of card Reader may be used as front end user interface for Access Control :

           MicroTIP : Finger Print Reader :
           Finger Print Reader works on Biometric Technology. Upto 2 fingers can be enrolled. The Finger Print Reader is used as            front end reader at the door. Upon placing the finger, if the user is enrolled, the ID Number against the finger is            identified & the reader transmits the ID code for access validation to Checkmate XL. If the card holder is found valid            then the Access is granted..

            MicroSMART : Contact less Smart Card Reader :
           Contact less Smart card Reader works on 13.56 MHz RF based on MIFARE technology.It is useful where Multi-            application  for employee card is envisaged. MicroSMART, compliant to ISO 14443 Protocol, can be used(Read Range            3).HID iClass Readers may also be used.

            MicroPROX : Proximity Card Reader(RF ID) :
            Proximity Reader is based on 125 KHz  RF technology and reads the Proximity cards on show within read range The. Entry             level MicroPROX reader has a read range of  3”. HID Prox Point Reader may also be used.

●  GROUP ANTIPASS BACK : Enable / Disable for each Access Group. Hard Antipassback : No exit w/o valid Entry, violation alarm.

●  TIME ZONE : 4 user definable Time zones per Access Group. The Time Zones could be enabled/Disabled for Holiday/Weekly off. “ALLOW ALL” Time Zone is possible for rush hours.

●  CARD HOLDER DATABASE : Each Access Group has its own set of Card Holders linked to one or more Time Zones for the Group. Card holder can be member of Multiple Access Groups. Upto 2000 IDs over all the Access Groups.

●  VISITOR  DATABASE : A visitor based on entry from the Central Computer would have access defined based on the Access Group. The Access rights can be withdrawn upon visitor leaving. Upto 100 visitor ID database may be defined.

●  HOLIDAY DATABASE TABLE : 30 Holiday Dates & a Weekly off Day can be defined for barring Access. Upto 100 card holders can be provided access irrespective of  Holidays based on their default Access Groups & Time Zones.

●  HOLIDAY MASTER CARD : For Card holders not included in Holiday Database Table, requiring entry on holiday/weekly off in their Time Zone, Master Card needs to be shown before the Card Holders card. Upto 5 Holiday master cards per Access Group may be defined.

●  LOCK ON-TIME : Lock on-time for door opening after Card Show is User Settable. The Lock shuts after this time. This can be used with Door open Sensor for exception monitoring.

●  EMERGENCY OPERATION : All Doors are opened based on Fire Alarm /closed in case of Burglar Alarm Panel Input. Resetting of Alarms results in normal operation.All alarms are logged for analysis.

●  ACCESS  RIGHTS EMERGENCY OPERATION : Card Holders can be temporarily Enabled/disabled from the Card Holder Table in the Controller. This feature is useful in case of ID card loss.

●  EMERGENCY LOCK OPEN : Central Computer can open a lock remotely with authorization. All such events are logged.


Computer can be connected to a single  Controller within 15 m using RS232  , or multiple controllers thru RS485 upto 1.2 Km in bus topology or thru a add on Ethernet interface for plugging into the  TCP/IP network(Optional).The COMPRO XP software running on the Computer is used for excercising all the features explained in the Hardware and Firmware section.


6 core multistrand(each core 14/36)  shielded cable for Reader is used. One Pair each of electrical multistrand  cable(each core 1.5 sq mm) is used for Lock operation, Lock Feedback (DOTL ) and Exit Switch. These cable  runs from  each Door to Checkmate XT Controller .Cable length should not exceed 100 m.

COMPRO XP : Configuration and Report Generation Software
Compro XP software, apart from configuring Checkmate XT to the user’s requirement also downloads the transactions and generates reports for First In Last Out , Movement Report , Access reports for Access groups, visitor IN-OUT reports etc. Data is available in tables for user to create his own reports or to link to their HR/Attendance/Payroll package.

Data Management

Checkmate XT stores the last 10000 transactions including the date / time ,ID , Access Area etc. so that movement tracking/Attendance is possible. The Central Monitoring computer optionally can show the current location of Person in on-line mode. The Central Monitoring Computer connected to the Checkmate XT  over the Serial RS232C/Ethernet network can do so in a continuous manner, On-line mode or in a Batch-mode collecting the data from the controller once in a while manually.
