The model PRX-1 is a 125KHz proximity reader and is designed to be mounted directly to a metal door or window frame (mullions), making it ideal for applications requiring an access credential. The proximity reader transmits data in 26-Bit Wiegand format, making it compatible with any of Viking’s Wiegand equipped entry controllers.
The PRX-1 delivers non-contact read ranges up to 6 inches and operates from 5 to 14 VDC. Mounting is simplified with horizontal and vertical mounting slots, which allow the reader to be conveniently adjusted and leveled. Concealing the mounting hardware, the PRX-1 ships with both Black and Ash (Off-White) covers.
The PRX-1 is equipped with Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) for outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation. The PRX-1 features sealed connections, as well as an epoxy potted circuit board. For more information, see DOD 859.
