To configure a door to send the raw bit stream on card swipe select 'Custom' as one of the weigand card formats for the door and make sure there is no AccessFormat(2,3,4) array created in the controller, if there is one it can be renamed to enable raw bit stream functionality and then rename back when done.
In order to get the RAW bit stream data from a card the door has been configured for Custom with NO AccessFormat array created, but when a card is swiped at the reader no event comes in.
- The AccessServer system variable in the controller has a value of zero which is invalid for a CX controller (valid only for old ACX7xx)
- The door must be configured to validate card & site in order for the custom card event with raw bit stream to be generated, if the door is operating on site code only it will produce and invalid attempt instead.
- After making the changes above, the controller may have to be reloaded in order for the changes to take effect.
Set the AccessServer system variable to a valid value.
(ACCNetId of the Controller or ID of primary access server in the range 191-254)
Setting the AccessServer to the AccNetID of the controller disables remote validation while setting it to the ID of the Primary Access Server enables remote validation.
