AWID's XK-3640 UHF Switchplate-Type Reader is the link between card access by people at doors in buildings, and vehicle access at gates for parking. The XK-3640 reads the same UHF hand-held cards and tags that drivers use for vehicle identification and gate control at a parking facility, and adds the convenience of a 12-key keypad for PINs. The cards and tagsare compatible with AWID's LR-2000, LR-2200 and LR-3000 long-range readers and their "HiLo" sets. The enclosure is a striking, deep black design.
Installation The XK-3640 reader fits perfectly on a single-gang electrical utility box, a wall, or other surface, using two screws (supplied). With simultaneous Wiegand and RS-232 data output, the XK-3640 reader can be interfaced for a wide variety of access control, special system control, and user identification applications.
FeaturesThe keypad's output is field- programmable for either 26, 4 or 8 bits. The reader's 2-color LED and beeper are controlled by the reader itself. No external wiring is required for this feedback.
The XK-3640 reader-keypad is self-testing, using its LED and beeper as indicators. It needs no interface to a controller to show that it is performing correctly. The reader can be demonstrated with just a DC power source (even a battery) and a card or tag
OperationThe system's Operation Mode may be any combination of card-read and PIN-entry, including card-reader-only or keypad-only.The card reader operates in "repeat read" mode. While a card or tag is held in the reader's read range, it transmits the card's code twice every second.
Environment The XK-3640 may be installed indoors or outdoors. The reader is secure when its cover is in place after installation. The electronic circuits are protected from moisture. If exposed directly to rain, water sprinklers, or vandalism, an optional protective housing assures carefree life.
Credentials The hand-held cards and tags for the XK-3640 are the same as the credentials that AWID offers for its UHF long-range readers in gate applications for vehicle access. Encoding in the cards and tags has the same format and data fields as in AWID's credentials for all other reader types.
The XK-3640 reader's read range is up to 6 inches. (Mounting the XK-3640 directly on metal slightly reduces the read range.) Presenting any AWID UHF card or tag to the reader causes the beeper to sound and the LED to change colormomentarily.
