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 backlighting, 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 (152.4 mm), 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.
