Quick Start Guide

Cisco Physical Access Gateway Quick Start Guide, Release 1.4.1


1 Summary Steps

The following steps are an example of the main installation and configuration tasks for a Cisco Physical Access Control system. The exact procedures and order of installation for your system may vary.


Tip To ensure proper operation, perform a test installation of all equipment on a lab bench before actual installation: use Cisco PAM to configure the Gateways and all peripheral devices including locks, readers, and sensors. This allows any issues to be resolved before the equipment is installed at the various access points.


1. Unpack and mount the Cisco Physical Access Gateway.

2. Unpack and mount optional reader, input or output modules, if necessary.

3. Connect door readers, input and output devices to the Cisco Physical Access Gateway or optional modules.

4. Connect power to the Cisco Physical Access Gateway and any optional modules.

5. Connect an Ethernet cable from a PC to the ETH1 interface on the Gateway module.


Note To enter the Gateway initial configuration, be sure to connect your PC to the ETH1 port. The ETH0 port is used for network communication.


6. Open a web browser on your PC and enter https://192.168.1.42. This URL opens the web-based configuration page.

7. Enter the default username and password:

default username: gwadmin

default password: gwadmin

8. Enter the Network settings, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 Network Settings for the Cisco Physical Access Gateway

9. Enter the ETH0 Configuration settings. The ETH0 port is used for network communications with the Cisco PAM appliance.

a. If a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is configured on your IP network, select the DHCP check box for ETH0 to automatically configure the required IP network settings, including IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway. The DHCP check box is selected by default.

b. (Optional) If a DHCP server is not used to assign IP address settings, enter the following information in the ETH0 fields:

IP address: Enter the IP address of the Cisco Physical Access Gateway.

Subnet Mask: Enter the subnet mask.

Gateway: Enter the IP gateway address.

10. (Optional) Enter the DNS Server address if names (not IP addresses) are used for the CPAM address.

11. Enter the Cisco PAM Configuration:

a. Enter the Cisco PAM IP address (IP address or name) to enable Gateway communication with the appliance.

b. Enter the port number for the Cisco PAM appliance. The port number must be greater than 1024 and less 65535. The default is 8020.


Tip DHCP can also be configured to supply the Gateway with the IP address of the Cisco PAM appliance by configuring option 150 in the DHCP response. The Cisco PAM appliance TCP port number can be provided by DHCP option 151 of the DHCP response.


c. Enable SSL: The secure socket layer (SSL) is enabled for secure communication between the Gateway and Cisco PAM appliance by default. If necessary SSL can be disabled by deselecting the Enable SSL check box.


Note SSL is enabled or disabled for all Gateways and the Cisco PAM appliance. Cisco Systems recommends that SSL always be enabled to ensure secure communications. If the SSL settings are changed, you must reset all Gateways and the Cisco PAM appliance.


12. Click Save to save the settings. Wait until the Gateway resets and the web browser displays the screen Network Settings Applied. Changes do not take effect until saved.

13. Repeat these steps for each Gateway in the system.

14. Perform additional configuration, verification, and monitoring tasks as described in the Cisco Physical Access Manager User Guide.


Tip For complete instructions, see the Cisco Physical Access Gateway User Guide.

Gateway Module Overview and Port Descriptions

The Cisco Physical Access Gateway includes connections for power, Ethernet, door readers and other input and output devices, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 Cisco Physical Access Gateway Ports and Connectors: Side View


Note For detailed installation and configuration instructions, see the Cisco Physical Access Gateway User Guide.


The following items are shown in Figure 2:

 
Type
Description
1

Power

Two-pin connector for Voltage In (VIN) and Ground (GND) to connect a 12 to 24 VDC external power source.

2

CAN

A three-wire CAN bus is used to connect additional modules, including the Cisco Reader Module, Cisco Input Module, and Cisco Output Module.


Note Modules are connected using the CAN1 interface. The CAN2 interface is not supported in this release.


3

SVR (Server)

When the LED is steady green, the Gateway is connected to a Cisco PAM.

4

Fast Ethernet interfaces

There are two 10/100 BASE-TX RJ-45 connectors:

ETH 0: connects the Gateway to the network. ETH 0 also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) for the device (optional).

ETH 1: connects the device to a PC to access the device configuration web page.

5

Serial interface

The RS-485 interface is not supported in this release.

6

Wiegand interface

This interface can be configured as the following:

One 10-pin Wiegand/clock and data reader interface to connect a single door reader.

Two 5-pin Wiegand/clock and data interfaces to connect two door readers (for installations where a 5-pin interface is sufficient).


Note Disconnect power from the Gateway or Reader module before connecting reader devices to the modules. Connecting a reader device when the modules are powered can cause the Gateway or Reader module to malfunction.


7

Input interfaces

Three input interfaces used to sense the contact closure. Each input can be configured as supervised or unsupervised and can be configured to sense a Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC) contact.

An unsupervised input senses a simple contact closure state, including Normal or Alarm. When connected to open contacts, the terminal voltage range is 4V to 5V. For closed contacts, the voltage range is 0V to 0.7V.

A supervised input senses four contact states, including Normal, Alarm, Open and Short. These inputs require 1K End-Of-Line (EOL) termination resistors installed at the contacts (two resistors are included in the accessory kits for each Input port). Refer to the Cisco Physical Access Gateway User Guide for instructions to install the termination resistors.

8

Output interfaces

Three Form C (5A @ 30V) relay output interfaces. Each output connection can be configured as either Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO).

C & NO connection: The relay is normally open. The circuit is closed when triggered.

C & NC connection: The relay is normally closed. The circuit is opened when triggered.

Notes:

Install surge protection between the output device and the Cisco PAM module. See the Cisco Physical Access Gateway User Guide for instructions.

Common (C) is always used, and either NC or NO is used to complete the connection.

All Generic Output devices installed in Cisco PAM systems prior to Release 1.1.0 were connected to the Gateway, Reader, or Output modules with the wiring reversed. If upgrading to Cisco PAM Release 1.1.0 or later from an earlier release, disconnect all Generic Output devices and do the following:

Connect Normally Open devices to the N.O. and C connectors on the Gateway, Reader, or Output module.

Connect Normally Closed devices to the N.C. and C connectors on the Gateway, Reader, or Output module.

9

PF

Power fail input: an unsupervised input that raises a "power fail" alarm when the circuit is open. Can be configured as an additional unsupervised port. An unsupervised input indicates only normal or alarm. The corresponding LED is red when circuit is open (when no input is connected).

10

TM

Tamper input: an unsupervised input that raises a "tamper" alarm when the circuit is open. Can be configured as an additional unsupervised port. An unsupervised input indicates only normal or alarm. The corresponding LED is red when circuit is open (when no input is connected).

11

Reset

Resets the device. See "Resetting the Cisco Physical Access Gateway" in the Cisco Physical Access Gateway User Guide for more information.
