WRI400 Wireless Reader Interface
The WRI400 is a networked access point controller that transmits and receives signals wirelessly back to an access control system to manage connected devices like electric strikes and card readers.
The Wireless Reader Interface (WRI400) is a networked access point controller. It can save time and money on installation by reducing wiring to the door from a panel interface module. WRI400 is compatible with most popular Wiegand or Clock and Data format readers that exist in the market today. It allows readers and traditionally wired door access control devices to be connected and managed by a network access provider using wireless transmission. It is also plays an important role in controlling distant access points such as gates and elevators wirelessly.
Two Form C relays on the WRI400, allow it to control more than one device such as electronic locking hardware combined with an auto operator. Wireless transmission of information is done via 900 MHz back to a panel interface module (PIM) hardwired to the access control panel.
Since the WRI400 is built on an open architecture platform, it is designed for seamless integration with most access control systems.
Features & Benefits
- Electronics bring more visibility and control to the opening
