ACS Level One: Binary and Card Data Formats

In stock

Module Length: 1 Credit Hour
Approved for CEUs by: Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, Tennessee

One of the most confusing, even intimidating questions will often be €œWhat format should these cards have? This module can't answer that question for you, but it will give you all the facts to be able to make the right choice every time. The structure of formats and their function in the credential, reader and controller are clearly explained.

Since binary arithmetic (1 and 0) is the foundation of formats, the module begins with its thorough exploration. You will learn how to count in binary and how it is used to construct card data formats. It is critical that you understand the fundamentals of what makes up the card data formats in order to make the right selections when it comes to an actual access control application.


This course is a component of the Access Control Specialist (ACS) Level One. It may be taken on its own or ordered as part of the ACS Level One training bundle for a lower overall cost.
