Brief The course provides an overview of the entire Excel Plus/FS90/FS90 Plus system and its extensions and enhancements. The basic portion of the course is a complete discussion of the entire Engineering Sequence for Access Management Controller Systems using a Graphic Central/XBS-i front end. The course deals with any job of any description or complexity.
The course is very fast paced and learning takes place in large discrete segments. The course focuses on developing a very independent thought pattern characterized by an aggressive problem-annihilating and not merely problem-solving approach.
The course first presents a very detailed block diagram of the Excel Plus Microcentral/Graphic Central/XBS-i System. The course then presents a small Access Management System to be controlled by the Graphic Central/XBS-i system.
To this end a point file is created quickly to define all mechanical and electrical Access Management equipment such as Card Readers and Access Management Controller panels and various functions boards contained in them such as the AR, AC and DA/DC boards. This is followed by a Mechanical Systems Data Access scheme that is to be used by the end-user. After this the defined equipment is set in required relationships with each other via Time and Event programs and Input/output Association Techniques. This completes the data base creation sequence. Each record creation is illustrated on-line using a powerful Honeywell Engineering Program. Students follow with the creation of similar records via elaborate written exercises.
The created database is then checked via the Validation routines in the engineering
program. Error messages are interpreted and errors corrected.
The validated database is then compiled and checked via the Generation Utility of the engineering program. Generation error messages are interpreted and errors corrected.
The compiled database is then used to print database logs and reports. These reports are deciphered and interpreted. Their extensive and unusually comprehensive nature is noted strongly.
The generated database is used to create media databases for the downline processors and the central processors.
The course then goes into media database installation and on-line test and checkout.
Finally the entire sequence is done by the students again. This time the students work independently on a given project. A successfully working project is a very satisfying and confidence-building experience.
The course also involves the installation of all program modules, including the Deltanet Access Control program, in the front PC and successful operation thereof. Finally the course shows briefly the graphic configuration of the front end to reflect the downline hardware configuration and the solving of problems related to both program installation, program and system database maintenance.
