EP Panel Capacities


Overview

The EP controller panels will retain up to 50,000 events without being connected to the host. This event count is a static value and once the maximum number of events is exceeded the oldest events are purged (FIFO).

The card capacity is a programatically calculated dynamic value based on the site settings. The current card capacity, based on the current site settings, is displayed within the General tab of the SCP properties. The Access level count, which determines how many access levels are to be allocated within the cards database of the EP series panel, is the only setting within the Site Options tab of the site properties that affects card capacity. This setting determines the number of access levels stored within the panel, regardless of the number of access levels that apply to the EP panel. Additionally, every item within the Card Options tab of the site properties will have a direct affect on the card capacity of the EP series panel.
