Are the cards numbered sequentially?
No they are notCan the cards be printed on?
No, the thick 1.8mm proximity cards could be difficult to print upon as they have a textured finishWhat are the numbers printed on the fobs & cards?
The EM chip inside each fob or proximity access card is pre-programmed with a Hexadecimal number that provides an 18 digit number during the manufacturing process. The first 10 digit number is the Unique I.D number (U.I.D) and is printed on the fob
The second 8 digit number is the Wiegand code number (Not printed on fobs), However, both 10 & 8 digit numbers are printed on the proximity access cardsAre these numbers important?
Yes, some 26 bit Wiegand card readers will only 'read' the 10 digit U.I.D number in a binary format, some will only 'read' the 8 digit Wiegand number
Some fob readers that require a remote control in order to delete lost or missing fobs or cards might not accept you manually entering the 10 digit U.I.D number but will only accept the manual entering of the 8 digit Wiegand number
A lot of PC access control systems will only display and accept the 8 digit Wiegand number, such as our PC access control system AC8001 or AC8002. It is ultimately down to the particular system or format used and/or requiredHow would I obtain the 8 digit Wiegand number?
The easy way is with our Proximity USB desktop card reader
, a simple 'plug and play' unit that you plug in to your computer, open up Windows Note Pad, present a card or fob and the 8 digit Wiegand number is displayedDo your key fob readers require a Proximity USB desktop card reader if I use key fobs or cards?
No, you would only require one if using key fobs with our PC access control system AC8001 or AC8002, or of course if you have several hundred cards/fobs to program as it will speed up programming them individuallyWhat item do they work best with - card reader or keypad/card reader?
They will work perfectly with any of our items or any Proximity Wiegand 125khz 26 bit EM-RFID format. Please check with your current supplier as to the exact format you have in the first instance
