Audiovisual indication: when a proximity card is presented to the reader, the red LED flashes green and the beeper sounds. The multicolor LED and beeper can also be controlled individually by the host system.


Diagnostics: on reader power-up, an internal self-test routine checks and verifies the setup configuration, determines the internal or external control of the LED and beeper, and initializes reader operation. An additional external loop-back test allows for the reader outputs and inputs to be verified without the use of additional test equipment.


Indoor/outdoor design: sealed in a rugged, weatherized polycarbon-ate enclosure designed to withstand harsh environments, providing reliable performance and a high degree of vandal resistance.


Easily interfaced: Wiegand output model interfaces with all existing Wiegand protocol access control systems. Clock-and-Data
(magnetic stripe) model interfaces with most systems that accept magnetic stripe readers.

Security: Recognizes card formats up to 85 bits, with over 137 billion unique codes.


Warranty: Lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship (see complete sales policy for details).
