Configuration Utility

configuration utility for configuration of system, Wigand, and IP address settings and centralize F/W upgrade.


This utility provides five very important functions in support of managing a large deployment of EF-45 systems on a single network.

1)Finds the IP addresses all systems on the network.

2)Assigns IP addresses of any system on the network.

3)Allows upgrades the EF-45 operating libraries and firmware (“FW”) from central console, so upgrade does not have to be done individually through USB memory drive. (Note: the current releases of CMITech C# and C++ SDK’s allow “push” upgrades from customer’s own central console.)

4)Configures the Wiegand output format for access control (AC) installations. Clones output format configuration for replication on all EF-45 units on the network, so setting the configuration only needs to be done once.

5)Sets EF-45 system parameters from central console. Clones system parameter settings for replication on all EF-45 units on the network.

How to use this configuration utility and below are steps

The main screen (default) shows:

1) The “Search” function in the top left box;

2)The “Select Device /IP Change” in the center top box;

3)The “Firmware Upgrade” function in the top right box;

4)The Wiegand and System Settings configurator panels in the bottom section of this panel.

A) Finding the IP addresses of EF-45 systems on the network

For finding all EF-45 systems installed on the network, please click on the “Search Device” button. All the EF-45 installed in your local network will be listed.

Please select one the EF-45 systems listed for potential IP address change or FW Upgrade. The IP address of the selected EF-45 will be shown in the IP Address Configuration and the Firmware Upgrade sections.

B) Changing the IP address of an EF-45

1)Change the IP address in case of selecting Static tab and then change IP (address), Gateway, and Subnet to desired setting.

2)Please click on “Apply” button.

3)After a short time, a pop up shows that IP was changed successfully.

4)You can reboot the selected EF-45 in the local network remotely by clicking on the “Reboot Device” button.

c) Firmware Upgrade

You can upgrade firmware of selected EF-45 remotely by selecting file to upload and tab the “Start” button. You can also upgrade multiple devices at the same time by selecting devices in the list.

Note: If you need to downgrade the firmware for some reason, select Force upgrade before proceeding.

1)When the firmware file is uploaded successfully, “Firmware file upload succeeded [From: (IP Address)]” message will appear.

2)The EF-45 device will then upgrade itself automatically, which will take a few minutes.

D) Setting the all configuration parameters on the EF-45

1)You can change and reconfigure all parameters in any single EF-45 unit.

2)To clone parameter set, first read the current parameters of the EF-45 and then save to file. Then ”Write to Device” to copy parameters to other EF-45 units.

E) Setting the Wiegand Configuration

1)The EF-45 supports the following data format for Wiegand:

Wiegand IN: 34 bits (32 bits for ID + 2 parity bits) without Facility bits which are fixed and unchangeable.

Wiegand OUT: all available formats supported including 26bits and 34 bits

2)The default format is the 26 bit Wiegand interface.

3)Change the parameters of Total Bits, Facility Bits, Code, and Parity bit.

4)Please fill out all input fields, and then click on “Write to Device”.

F)Wiegand Input & Output Configuration Guide

Note: Currently, EF-45 supports only 34-bits (32 User ID bits + 2 parity bits) without Facility bits for Wiegand Input while it supports all available formats including 26bits and 34 bits for Wiegand Output.

1)How to set up Wiegand Output In the PC Configuration Utility

Run EF-45ConfigurationUtility.exe.

2)Click Search Device to find your EF-45.

3)Select your EF-45 device from the list.

Note: You can find the IP address of your EF-45 under Settings > Network > TCP/IP.

1)Type pulse data in the Signal field.

2)To configure Wiegand input, type Pulse Width and Pulse Interval in the Input area according to Wiegand input device (e.g. card reader) specification.

To configure Wiegand output, type Pulse Width and Pulse Interval in the

4)Output area according to Wiegand output device (e.g. ACU) specification

5)Configure Wiegand format information (Total Bits, Facility Bits, Facility code) according to your Wiegand environment as follows:

Example 1. Total Bits = 26, Facility Bits = 8, Facility code=1

Type the data as shown below and click Set.

Example 2. Total Bits = 34, Facility Bits = 0, Facility code= 0

Type the data as shown below and click Set.

1)In the EF-45 system (for Wiegand output data type)

a)Press Settings > Mode > Wiegand > Output type.

b)Select a Wiegand Output data type.

Note: Typically, Card or ID will used for normal operations.

2. How to test Wiegand Output

1)Card Registration during enrollment (Wiegand Input)

2)Tag a card on the card tab to register a card.

a)Make sure that the card ID will appear on the Card field in HEX and on the ID field in Decimal.

Checking Wiegand data output upon authentication (Wiegand Output)

When Card is selected as Output type: “E + Card data 4bytes (from the first byte)+ O”

When ID is selected as Output type: “E + ID data 4bytes + O”

Wiegand Input Connector

The Wiegand Input DATA0 and DATA1 are pulled-up by internal DC +5V supply.
