Adding devices to SALTO Network

Introducción

You can add the devices listed in this section to the SALTO Space Network. Click on the device you want to add to know how to do it:

Ethernet encoders

Encoders are used to read keys, and encode keys with access permission data. They are connected to the system either by a USB or serial connection, or by an Ethernet connection. You can add two types of Ethernet encoders to the system by using the SALTO Network screen:

You must specify how encoders connect to the system on the Settings screen. Note that you must assign an IP address to Ethernet encoders by using the SALTO Network screen before you select them on the Settings screen.

You can update the firmware of an encoder that is plugged into your local PC using either a USB, Ethernet or serial connection. Firmware updates are available when a new version of the SALTO software is downloaded. Your SALTO technical support contact may also recommend specific firmware updates if required.

  • Encoder options panel

Both types of SALTO encoders include a Encoder options panel. The table below shows the options you can select in this panel:

OptionDescripción
Run update readerThis option is used to configure an Ethernet encoder to update user keys automatically when users present their keys to it. If you select this option, the encoder runs continuously but it can only update keys. It cannot be used to encode keys with access data from the SALTO software. See Updating keys for more information.
Enable beeperIf you select this option, the encoder emits beeps when in use.
Enable dongle modeThis option allows you to use the online Ethernet encoder in dongle mode. This mode is used to encrypt the data that is sent over the air or when using a third-party encoder.

Controllers

Controllers, also known as control units or CUs, are mains-wired hardware devices that can be used to control access where a standalone lock cannot be fitted. For example, on lockers, car park barriers, turnstiles or sliding doors. They allow the management of multiple accesses from a single device. For example, one single controller could control access to both the entrance and exit of a building via a turnstile.

You can add the following controllers:

GAT Net controllers

Earlier versions of Space use the term "Gantner Controller" in place of "GAT Net controller".

GAT Net controllers are mains-wired hardware devices that can be used to control access to online GAT Net lockers. See Connection types for more information on this type of lockers.

  2. In the Settings panel, enter the password you have defined while configuring the GC7 controller in the G7 Web Interface and select the Enable TLS checkbox if required. This checkbox enables encrypted communication between the controller and Space. If you select this option, you must configure a certificate in the controller.

Access the SALTO Partner area or contact your SALTO representative for further information on the GC7 set up for GAT NET.Locks in Space.

  1. Select the Access level of master cards users from the drop-down list in the Master cards panel. Master cards are a list of cards that can open the locker at any time for maintenance or other purposes. GAT NET.Locks allow master cards to work even if the system is offline (no connection with the host). Those master cards are stored on the GC7 controller with a maximum of 10 cards per controller. Note that there is also another type of master card called the "service master card". This type of master card works if the system is online.

Access the SALTO Partner area or contact your SALTO representative for further information on GAT Net locks in Space.

As an example of creating a master card list, you should create a user access level and define it as User cards will be GAT Net lockers master cards. Then, you should enable the option Is a GAT Net lockers zone while configuring the GAT Net lockers zone, insert the lockers into this zone and define to what GAT Net controllers this access level will be the master. See Zones for more information.

Gateways

Gateways are hardware devices that provide a link between networks that use different base protocols. You can add two types of gateways to the system by using the SALTO Network screen:

CU4200 gateways

CU4200 gateways are CUs that are connected to a local area network (LAN) using a network cable. They connect to the SALTO network using a TCP/IP connection. CU4200 gateways can control CU4200 nodes. See CU4200 nodes section below for more information about CU4200 nodes.

The CU4200 gateways provide a link between the CU4200 nodes and the SALTO system, and transmit data to the nodes. This means the CU4200 nodes do not require a TCP/IP connection. You must physically connect CU4200 nodes to a CU4200 gateway using an RS485 cable. This establishes communication between the CU4200 nodes and the CU4200 gateway. You must also link CU4200 gateways and CU4200 nodes in Space so the system can show which nodes and gateways are connected.

CU4200 gateways control access to doors by activating their relays. Each CU4200 gateway can control a maximum of two doors. They can also update user keys.

The CU4200 supports up to 4 auxiliary CU4200 nodes, meaning this that up to 10 online doors can be controlled using a single IP address (1 CU4200 gateways + 4 CU4200 nodes).

In standalone mode, DIP switches on the CU4200 node units must be set up to 0000, if online, each node should have its own configured address, using the suitable DIP switch combination in binary format.

See the Installation guide CU42E0 Controller for further information about how to install CU4200 gateways.

See the image below for an example. CU4200 gateway and node exampleCU4200 gateway and node example

The maximum distance between the gateway and the last node in line cannot be over 300 meters.

To add a CU4200 gateway, do the following:

  1. Select System > SALTO Network. The SALTO Network screen is displayed.

  2. Click Add. The Add network device dialog box is displayed.

  3. Select CU4200 gateway from the drop-down list.

  3. Type the MAC address in the MAC address field. The MAC address is displayed on a sticker on the CU.

  4. Select either the Network name (DHCP) or IP address radio button. If you select the Network name (DHCP) option, this automatically assigns an IP address to the CU4200 gateway. A DHCP server and a DNS are required for this option. If you select the IP address option, you must type an IP address in the field.

  5. Select Use 485 bus for third party integration when CerPass/Hitachi/OSDP protocol is required to be used with integration with the corresponding third party controller driving RS485 bus. These options imply the use of RS485 bus to integrate with the third party controller, so it is not possible to add additional CU4200 online nodes in this mode. We can define which readers are sending the received information by CerPass/Hitachi/OSDP. This means a reader can be installed that's not related to a third party integration.

You can select the CU4200 node and click Edit to change the number in the Address (DIP switch) column if required. See CU4200 and CU4EB8 nodes for more information about the Address (DIP switch) field. Note that embedded CU4200 nodes have a fixed number (0) and this cannot be changed.

  1. Click on Back to SALTO Network to return to the SALTO Network screen.

RFnet/BLUEnet gateways

RFnet/BLUEnet gateways allow data to be transmitted back and forth between the system and the SALTO wireless locks. RFnet/BLUEnet gateways can be connected to RFnet and BLUEnet nodes. See also the section on RFnet/BLUEnet nodes for more information.

Depending on the lock type, Space manages two different wireless technologies: RFnet and BLUEnet. The Ethernet behavior of the gateway is the same for these two technologies. That's why the gateway setting is the same. What changes is just the internal node (antenna) of the gateway: the antenna could be RFnet or BLUEnet, depending on the type of wireless locks.

You must physically connect RFnet/BLUEnet nodes to a gateway using an RS485 cable to establish communication between the external nodes and the gateway.

You may get more information from the gateway datasheet. If you don't already have that document, contact your SALTO partner or tech support team to receive a copy of it.

You must also connect nodes and gateways in Space so the system can show which nodes and gateways are connected.

  1. Click Back to SALTO Network to return to the SALTO Network screen.

The Start Diagnosis option allows to analyze the quality of the wireless communications between a specific RFnet/BLUEnet gateway (and its nodes) and the locks connected to it. The gateway must have an updated firmware version. Contact your SALTO technical support team for more detailed information about this. By selecting this option, you can also generate logs for each gateway section. The logs will be generated as .txt files in the SALTO Space logs folder.

Take into account that during this test, the locks under the specific gateway won't be online. Depending on the number of locks, this test can take from 5 minutes to 1 hour and a half. You can stop this test by restarting the Space service. This diagnosis test can be made at the beginning of a wireless system configuration to check the quality or if there is any wireless communication issue in a wireless RFnet or BLUEnet system.

Nodes

Nodes are network connection points that are physically connected to a gateway using an RS485 cable, which establishes communication between the RF nodes and the RF gateways. The nodes available in the Space system are the following:

CU4200 nodes

CU4200 nodes are network connection points that are physically connected to a CU4200 gateway using an RS485 cable, which establishes communication between the CU4200 nodes and the CU4200 gateway.

The CU4200 nodes receive data from the CU4200 gateway so they do not require a TCP/IP connection. Instead, they communicate with the SALTO network through the CU4200 gateway to which they are connected.

You must connect CU4200 nodes to CU4200 gateways in Space. You must also connect CU4200 nodes to access points. This means that the system can show which items are connected. Each CU4200 node can control a maximum of two doors.

You must select Online IP (CU4200) in the Connection type panel on the Door information screen before you can connect an access point to a CU4200 node.

UBOX-4000 updaters

UBOX-4000 updaters are CUs that are connected to a local area network (LAN) using a network cable. They connect to the SALTO network using a TCP/IP connection. UBOX-4000 updaters functionalities are mainly related to updating tasks and third party integrations. This device also supports an embedded node.

The UBOX-4000 updaters provide a link between the third party unit and Space, and transmit data to the third party unit. This means the third party unit does not require a TCP/IP connection. You must physically connect the third party unit to a UBOX-4000 updater using an RS485 cable, which establishes communication between them.

To add a UBOX-4000 updater, do the following:

  1. Select System > SALTO Network. The SALTO Network screen is displayed.

  2. Click Add. The Add network device dialog box is displayed.

  3. Select UBOX-4000 updater from the drop-down list.
