Product Details

Model PRX-5 is designed to mullion mount to metal door or window frames, or any flat surface. The PRX-5 integrates a 125KHz proximity card reader and keypad into a single-unit, making it ideal for applications requiring an access credential and/or personal identification number (PIN).

The proximity card reader and keypad of the PRX-5 are both capable of transmitting data in 26-Bit Wiegand format, making it compatible with any of the Wiegand equipped Viking entry controllers. The keypad is based on cutting-edge, non-mechanical, capacitive technology, which, unlike membrane keypads, includes no moving parts prone to early failure. Advanced keypad enhancements include fully potted circuit board (EWP), keys with blue LED back-lighting, raised key outlines and pip (bump dot) on the 5-key for the visually impaired.

The PRX-5 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-5 ships with a black cover.

The PRX-5 comes equipped with Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) for outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation. The PRX-5 features sealed connections, as well as an epoxy potted circuit board. For more information on Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP), see DOD 859.
