AWID’s SP-6820 Proximity Card Reader is a switchplate-type reader that combines
exceptional reading distance and easy mounting directly on a single-gang box.
With a read range up to 8 inches, the SP-6820 reader delivers excellent performance
without compromising quality, durability, attractive appearance, and ease of
The SP-6820 reader contains (a) a 3-color LED, (b) a 4 kilohertz beeper,
and (c) a “hold” circuit. Both LED and beeper are controlled by the reader itself.
All three functions can be controlled externally by the host system. The LED can
indicate access-granted by the host. The
beeper can be used as an alarm that
prevents further card reads until the
alarm condition is cleared. The “hold”
circuit delays code transmission from the
reader until the host requests it.
The SP-6820 reader is ready for installation indoors and outdoors.
The ABS plastic enclosure, quickly installed when its cover is removed, provides
a secure package when the cover is snapped on the base. Epoxy resin potting
protects the electronic circuits.
All of AWID’s 125 kilohertz proximity credentials may be used with
the SP-6820 reader. This includes clamshell and graphics-quality cards, keytags,
hangtags, and adhesive wafers. Read range varies with the credential type.
