Wiegand to USB / Serial Interface OEM Module
Have a working solution in minutes and get to market quickly with this simple, reliable interface solution from Linkstream. Made specifically for connecting RFID proximity and magnetic stripe card readers to embedded devices, it is a complete interface converter that requires no programming and no external components for operation.
The Wiegand interface module is easily surface mounted to a host board and is small enough to fit most applications. Input lines are provided for standard 5V Wiegand data which is converted to hex data and output simultaneously on both the USB and Serial (UART) lines. No USB driver software is required on the host device since the module enumerates as a Human Interface Device keyboard and data is presented as keyboard scan codes. Serial data is presented in hex ASCII. The module can be configured to send only the raw card data or to add carriage return and linefeed characters to the data for compatibility with spreadsheets, word processors and many other software packages right out of the box.
The module is perfect for connection to computers, terminals, printers and MFP’s, PLC’s or even embedded applications. Works with HID Prox, HID iCLASS, Mifare, AWID, Indala card reader types. Even works with US Government issued FIPS 201 ID cards for CHUID applications. Leverage that huge installed base of proximity ID badges for more than physical access!
