converterUse part no. PC-P-Convertor when ordering

Comes with a terminal block to connect any wiegand output reader. PCB Only.


The Wiegand Converter integrates all standard Wiegand based reader technologies into other applications. The Converter has multiple uses:

  • As a pcProx® card data converter, it translates all major Wiegand data outputs to USB
  • Models exist for Wiegand output from standard prox and contactless smart card readers as well as FIPS201/TWIC 200 bit CHUID output readers.
  • Provides the computer/terminal/PLC interface when using ID badges for more than door access

The converter output is sent to the USB port either as keystrokes or through a callable DLL for software developers. Selectable card information can be configured in the converter’s flash memory using free software. Perfect for those requiring pcProx Enroll functionality, but require an outdoor reader with longer read range.
