The WEC-200 converts data packets of various data collection devices with Wiegand interface into an Ethernet compatible format. It supports Wiegand formats with 26, 30, 34, 35, 37, 38 and 42 bit. This allows long-range data transfer over the company network of you offices and production facilities. With devices such as the Promag access control unit SF-500/-600 or RFID readers of the GP series, the converter takes the data packet with the serial number of the accessed tag and transfers it over TCP/UDP. Depending on the functionality of the reader and its software, you are able to track which employee enters which area at what time. In logistics the same can be used to locate articles, products or parcels by comparing read data with previously filed data. The readers are simply connected to the controller at the Wiegand interface. Ideally, this controller is directly connected to the next hub or router to provide online host communication. This makes all customer investments with real-time requirements absolutely future-proof. Each WEC-200 has its own ID and can be easily configured online. A robust metal casing makes the converter even useful under harsh operating conditions.
