Wireless door interface

The unit is a quick and inexpensive solution to connect remote door devices, such as readers, locks and REX Buttons to an access control unit. The unit utilizes bidirectional RF data communication to relay Wiegand 26-bit reader communication, lock and door relay commands as well as tamper, door monitor and REX messages between the controller and the interface unit. The interface is based on two units per door, one located near the controller and the other near the door.

Major Features

  • Maximum range of 70 meters (230 ft) indoors, up to 200 meters (650 ft) outdoors. Depending on RF related environmental conditions
  • Overall response time of 500 ms when used with the AC-225 controller and readers. Response time depends on RF link quality, the number of doors used and the controller and readerís response time
  • Built-in charger for up to 7Ah backup battery on the Remote unit
  • Compatible with all our readers and with any third party units using standard wiegand format of PIN code and credentials
  • Separate sets of terminals for door and controller connections
