PROXIMITY vandal proof reader
About – The vandal proof reader is for use with Switch2 and Net2 systems. The barrel-like construction of the reader means that it can be buried in a wall. This means that it is ideal for use in vandal prone areas where malicious damage could be a problem. The reader is supplied with black caps as standard. The end cap is used as a marker, so users know where to present their tokens. Replacement covers in a range of colours are available to Paxton registered installers free of charge.
We have added Genuine HID Technology to the majority of our Paxton readers, they can now read HID 125kHz Proximity tokens, when licensed with an activation card. If required these readers can still be enabled to have Wiegand output, via a separate activation card.
Installation – The reader is wired as shown on the control unit label. The reader itself is inserted into a 20mm diameter hole in the wall or door frame. The cap is then mounted as a visual marker for users. The reader should not be mounted into metal. The illustration below shows the different fitting options.
Operation – A token is read by holding it within close proximity of the reader. Once a token has been read the control unit looks up the access permissions of that user. Access is then granted or denied as appropriate.
