About – Proximity compact vandal proof reader is a single door access control system with all of the electronics within the housing of the reader. Compact systems can be installed to many doors over a site, all using the same cards. The compact vandal proof reader’s cylindrical construction means that all the control electronics may be buried in a wall. This reader is ideal where access control is required on a door at risk of vandalism. The end cap is used as a marker, so users know where to present their tokens. A black end cap is provided with the reader. Replacement covers in a range of colours are available to Paxton registered installers free of charge. Installation – The compact reader has two wires which connect to the lock and two wires which connect to the power supply. There are two wires for connection to an exit button if required. It is not recommended to mount the reader in metal as this will affect the read range. The vandal proof reader is buried into the wall. The most secure mounting is in a blind hole (see illustration below). Once installed, present the enrolment card to the reader. All the tokens in the pack are now valid. Operation – User tokens are valid and ready for use once installation is complete. Every user token is supplied with a corresponding shadow card. As user tokens are issued, the name of the user is marked on the shadow card. If a user is to be barred, or a user card is lost, the shadow card marked with the user’s name is presented to any readers on site. This simple action invalidates the user card. Another user token may be issued for that user. Additional features can be programmed using the proximity function card pack. These features include zoning which allows you to limit access by zone colour.
