Can the I/NET SCU controller connect to Security Expert SP-C directly instead of being imported from the I/NET system?
Security Expert,TAC INET
I/NET SCU 1284
Security Expert Controller
Required to use New I/NET SCU1284 controllers on a Security Expert site.
It is not possible to configure and commission SCU1284 door controllers without the use I/NET on Security Expert.
Explanation of why this is not possible:
In I/NET, door controllers i.e SCU1284 are on a subLAN that connects to a 779x host device.
In the 779x host device, controller parameters such as its reader type, PIN functionality, LED operation, etc are configured for each door.
The configuration parameters for each door controller gets stored in the 779x host device, then the host device’s data is saved to a SAV file (i.e., a backup file of the 779 x device).
To integrate I/NET door controllers with Security Expert, The subLAN (779x host device ) is then disconnected from the door controllers and connected to an SP-C (the SP-C replaces the 779 x host device).
The 7798x host device’s SAV file is then downloaded to the SP-C as a binary blob.
The SP-C needs this SAV file to know how to communicate with each door controller and to configure these devices if a cold restart is ever experienced.
