12

What elements make up an EAC system card holder?

Who, what, when and where

13

What is the main purpose of capacitance detectors and how do they work?

Monitors large areas. Charges the air between 2 antenna and looks for changes

14

What makes an access control system so beneficial and effective?

It restricts unauthorized access without human interaction.

15

Describe the difference between active and passive proximity cards.

Active interfaces with the environment and has its own power source up to 100'. Passive reacts to changes and has no power - draws power off reader up to 1-30" range

16

Name the three most commonly used credential types.

Smart, Proximity, Wiegand

17

What is the range of force in pounds electromagnetic locks have?

500-3000 pounds

18

Name two primary considerations when installing a mantrap.

Civil Liberty Rights and Fire Code

19

What information might be included in a time schedule?

Who, what, where, when, time, date, weekends, holidays

20

Mechanical
Capacitance
Vibration
Audio
Electro Mechanical
Light

21

What are the main disadvantages of each of the following card types?
Proximity
Hollerith
Barcode
Infrared
Barium Ferrite

Proximity - easy to steal info, damage by mag
Hollerith - easily duplicated
Barcode - easily copied
Infrared - quality and maintenance of reader
Barium Ferrite - easily damaged and breaks down over time.
