General Lock Helix 100 Biometric Fingerprint Reader

A standalone Helix 100 is tied into an existing access control system using the Wiegand output to establish a networked Helix 100 system.


If no additional users are enrolled within seconds, the Helix 100 will exit programming mode. The Helix 100 in its resting state will flash the blue LED briefly every three seconds.

A separate record must be kept to identify each user fingerprint enrolled. Each time a new user fingerprint is enrolled, a series of beeps will sound indicating the finger template (user) number. Repeat the enrolling procedure until all of the users have been registered.

Once the users have been enrolled, double click the Helix 100 software. There are four icon options: Units, Users, Export and Status.

Each networked Helix 100 has the capability to create an unlimited number of time zones for enrolled users to gain access. However, time zones cannot overlap each other. When configuring the access rules for a user, the source unit (Helix 100) and target units must be identified. The event, finger and action are chosen. The days of the week as well as the times of the day are chosen. For this operation any enrolled finger can be used to gain access. The software permits using different fingers to perform different actions. A chosen action can be to activate the momentary relay for five seconds. Another action is taken in order to operate the Wiegand output.

When a Helix 100 is operating in server (networking) mode, the LED indicator will flash green. If the Helix is operating in standalone mode, the LED indicator will flash blue.

Helix100 software updates will become available from time to time.
