DoorKing's ProxPlus™ Card Readers

Product Profile

DoorKing's ProxPlus™ Card Readers provide extremely high security and compatibility — all in one card.

ProxPlus Secure Card Readers are available for those applications that require a higher level of security than standard Proximity Card Readers and Cards can offer, providing access control to seaports, schools, laboratories, utility facilities, airports, and more.

While other Cards use a single encryption code and can be easily duplicated with off-the-shelf devices, ProxPlus Cards are programmed with a unique identifier, making them extremely secure and difficult to duplicate. In addition to dependable security, the DoorKing Card Reader outputs the card code in a 26-bit Wiegand format, making the ProxPlus compatible with almost any Access Control System on the market.

The optional DoorKing Card Scanner provides a simple identification solution by enabling administrators to read the Wiegand access code of secure, unlabeled cards via computer, keeping security intact. ProxPlus Secure Card Readers feature an aesthetically appealing design that will blend with any architectural style and they're available in two sizes to increase accessibility in high-traffic access points and fit well in small or awkward locations where wall space is at a premium.

Higher security IS within your reach — now with DoorKing ProxPlus Secure.
