MCR-403 InStar™ Indala Compatible Reader
The MCR-403 InStar proximity reader is a new access control proximity reader from Keri Systems designed to provide compatibility with Indala's ASP line of proximity readers, cards, and tags.
The MCR-403 is intended to read Indala cards and tags coded with Indala's standard ASP 26-bit Wiegand format, including their ASC-121T standard card, ISO-30 ISO-style card, and ASK-116 key tag. Attractive on its own, the unique size and shape of the MCR-403 allows it to be fitted with any of Indala's FlexPass Linear, Arch, Curve, and Wave door frame and wall switch covers, allowing it to blend seamlessly into existing installations as well.
Designed to mount directly to metal doorframes (mullions) or single-gang wall switch boxes (using an Indala single gang wall switch cover), the MCR-403 is ideal for any location requiring a compact, single-piece OEM proximity reader. Delivering read ranges of up to 4 inches (10 cm), it operates from 5 to 14 VDC allowing for flexibility in the use of power supplies. The reader can be used with virtually any manufacturer's access control system because it produces an industry standard Wiegand output. The electronics are fully potted, enhancing the reader's vandal resistance, as well as making it appropriate for both indoor and outdoor installations.
The MCR-403 is small, with dimensions of 4 x 1.5 x 0.63 inches (10 x 3.8 x 1.6 cm). It includes all the key features for today's projects, such as a four-state LED, audio tone, start-up self check, and Beep-n-Flash. And like all proximity readers from Keri Systems, the MCR-403 is backed by a lifetime warranty.
It is important to note that the MCR-403 is not compatible with Indala's credentials programmed with the ASP+, ESP, or ECR format structures. Nor will it read Keri's Pyramid Series Proximity credentials or HID's proximity credentials. For more details refer to the InStar Quick Start Guide and to the InStar/Indala Compatibility Page.
