This reader is designed to work in the most demanding of operating environments, and can read PAC, STANLEY, KeyPAC and many Wiegand credentials. It also has multiple outputs, audio/visual identification, and a tamper circuit that meets EN 50131- 1 &3 standards. In this article, we will show you how to use this reader for secure access control.
What You Need
- A PAC Stanley 20116 Oneprox Vandal Resistant Reader (available from Securetronics)
- A compatible controller (such as the PAC 512 or the PAC 212)
- A power supply (12-24V DC)
- A suitable cable (such as the Paxton 166-100 reader cable)
- A drill and screws for mounting the reader
- A computer with PAC SecureNet software installed
How to Install the Reader
- Choose a suitable location for the reader, preferably near the door or entrance that you want to control. Make sure the surface is flat and sturdy.
- Use the drill to make four holes on the surface according to the dimensions of the reader. You can use the template provided with the reader for guidance.
- Connect the cable to the reader according to the wiring diagram in the user manual. The cable should have at least 10 cores: red (power), black (ground), green (data 0), white (data 1), brown (tamper), blue (LED), yellow (buzzer), orange (hold), grey (request to exit) and violet (door monitor).
- Feed the cable through one of the holes on the surface and secure the reader with screws.
- Connect the other end of the cable to the controller according to its wiring diagram. Make sure to match the colors of the wires.
- Connect the power supply to the controller and turn it on.
- The reader should light up and beep once to indicate that it is ready.
How to Configure the Reader
- Launch the PAC SecureNet software on your computer and log in with your credentials.
- Select “Devices” from the menu and click on “Add Device”.
- Enter a name for your reader and select “PAC Oneprox GS3 LF Vandal” from the device type list.
- Enter the serial number of your reader, which can be found on a label on its back.
- Select a communication mode for your reader: PAC, PAC64, Wiegand 26, Wiegand 34 or Wiegand Emulation. This depends on how you want your reader to communicate with your controller and other devices.
- Select an access group for your reader. This determines which credentials can access your reader.
- Select a door group for your reader. This determines which doors can be controlled by your reader.
- Click on “Save” to add your reader to your system.
How to Use the Reader
To use the reader, simply present a valid credential (such as a card, fob or key) near its front label. The reader will read the credential and check if it is authorized by your system. If it is, it will send a signal to your controller to unlock the door or grant access. The reader will also flash green and beep once to indicate success. If it is not, it will flash red and beep twice to indicate failure. You can also use other features of your system, such as time zones, schedules, events and reports, to manage your access control more effectively.
