Access control system refers to a professional access control system used in buildings, companies and some closed facilities. It is a large-scale security monitoring system that provides basic and critical security for enterprises, so it is indispensable. However, an access control system, like other equipment, will experience failures, so it is especially important to understand common faults and repair methods.
General faults can be roughly divided into three categories: electrical, mechanical, and software. Electrical faults include circuit board power failure, damaged control lines, and burnt transistors. Checking and repairing these problems requires professional installation and maintenance skills and knowledge. As for mechanical failure, it could be a jammed door, a broken lock, a slow table advance, or damage to access control door drive, etc., and maintenance requires friction adjustment and component replacement. Software failures include inability to open door, control equipment stops working, and incorrect permission settings. You can verify that configuration information is correct and perform reset or update operations.
The access control system maintenance methods can be divided into two categories: self-maintenance and professional maintenance. Self-test repair consists of using self-test software to check against operational information in event of a system failure, as well as to resolve common electrical, mechanical, and software problems. Professional maintenance means that when self-test and maintenance fail to resolve problem, contact a professional service team to perform maintenance and keep system running normally.
In order to ensure normal operation of access control system, users should prepare for regular maintenance and repair, and pay attention to risk of equipment failure, so as to better provide enterprise security services.
