The P-400, milled from a solid piece of stainless steel, provides up to 1 inch (25 mm) of read range. Protecting the window through which the proximity electronics read is Fibertex®, a UL-752 listed material for bulletproof integrity. Installing dealers will appreciate the P-400's single picec design, standard pass through Wiegand or magnetic stripe interface, and potted weather and vandal resistant electronics, all backed by a lifetime warranty.
The P-400 is ideal for any application where other types of readers (including proximity) may fail due to vandalism. Many access applications do not lend themselves to concealment of a reader inside or behind a wall, so the reader must be exposed to the perilous environment. Examples of applications include housing projects, prisons, schools and universities, hospitals, and military facilities.
The P-400, engineered using ultra-reliable surface mount components and backed by a lifetime warranty, features an audible tone. The audio tone can be controlled independently by the access controller. It operates from 5 to 14 VDC at a nominal current draw of just 90 mA.
Most recently, Keri confirms that a license agreement has been concluded with HID Corporation. This agreement allows the P-300 to be optionally configured at the factory to read HID's proximity access control cards, including the ProxCard II® and ISOProx II®, as well as the complete range of Pyramid Series credentials.
The P-400 is complemented by a complete line of access credentials that may be used interchangeably with any Pyramid Series Proximity Reader. They include the PSC-1 Standard Light Proximity Card featuring a lifetime warranty, the dye sublimation printable ISO-thin PSM-2 Multi-Technology Proximity Card available with a magnetic stripe, and one of the smallest, most durable credentials available, the PSK-3 Proximity Key Ring Tag.
