Access Control

Access Control - AR-737HB-RAY Proximity Access Reader

The AR-737HB-RAY proximity access control reader has been designed to operate with Controller AR-727HB-RAY or Master Controller AR-716E via an RS485 link to enable cable runs of up to 1000 metres to be used between controller and reader. This reader has a high visibility/contrast yellow and black front with raised token logo to assist visually impaired people. It has a built-in LED and sounder to indicate acceptance or rejection of a token/card. The reader is available in standard form for mounting directly on a wall or similar surface with a clip-on protective cover. Although the reader is waterproof and fairly robust, it is recommended that the terminals at the rear are protected from condensation with a silicone sealant. The reader can also be provided with a vandal resistant stainless steel case for surface (VR-RAY-S complete) or flush mounting (VR-RAY-F complete). Both VR versions use a standard single way, 35mm deep, metal, electrical back box.

This reader operates in a similar way to AR-737H in that it has an output that can be used to operate a local lock relay if this is preferred to using the lock relays in the Controller or if it is working directly to a host PC.

Note: Diodes should always be fitted across the lock inputs in accordance with best practice.
