Model PRX-3 is a high performance medium range 125 KHz proximity reader. The PRX-3’s compact size and long read range of up to 16 inches* – make it ideal for parking control, gate access, turnstiles, etc. The proximity reader transmits data in 26-Bit Wiegand format, making it compatible with any of the Wiegand equipped Viking entry controllers.
The PRX-3 is designed to be mounted directly to a wall, post, single gang electrical box or use an optional mounting kit for attaching it to a Viking gooseneck pedestal. Mounting is simplified with horizontal and vertical mounting slots, which allow the reader to be conveniently adjusted and leveled. To increase vandal resistance the chassis is a single piece design with the mounting screws concealed behind a UV stable label.
The PRX-3 is equipped with Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) for outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation. With its sealed connections and fully potted electronics the PRX-3 is designed to meet an IP66 Ingress Protection Rating. For more information on Enhanced Weather Protection, see DOD 859.
