Paxton, the market leader in IP access control, door entry and building intelligence systems, has announced the addition of HID™ functionality to its most popular readers.
Paxton has expanded the technology in its P50M Reader, P75 Reader, Net2 PaxLock and Net2 Entry reader range by adding Genuine HID Technology™. Customers can now use existing HID 125kHz credentials already issued on any of these readers, including the company’s desktop enrollment reader. Wiegand communications have also been added and will be offered in addition to clock and data on the P50M and P75, making these readers highly versatile with Paxton solutions or third party panels.
The initial phase includes:
- Added functionality reading of HID™ 125kHz Proximity tokens
- Added functionality of Wiegand output on the P50M and P75 readers
- Release of v5.03 SR3 software, containing the firmware for Net2 PaxLock US, required for use with HID™ 125kHz Proximity tokens
Chris Wilson, Product Manager of Paxton Inc., says: “This is something that our customers have told us they want and we have listened. With the release of this technology, taking over an existing system is even easier. Simply enroll your HID™ 125kHz tokens in the Paxton system and continue to use them alongside Paxton tokens without changing any hardware. It doesn’t get simpler than that.
As we continue to develop this product, our full reader line will be updated to offer this technology, enabling all of our readers to be used with Paxton and other Wiegand systems.”
