Wiegand to USB

Configurable Wiegand Converter with flash memory for data conversion.


The Wiegand Converter integrates all standard Wiegand based reader technologies into other applications. The Converter has multiple uses: As a WAVE ID® 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 WAVE ID® functionality, but require an outdoor reader with longer read range.
