Product Details

Essex RoxProx™ is a heavy-duty 125 kHz proximity reader with Genuine HID Technology™. Built to last, this all-weather IP66 rated Wiegand reader features stainless steel construction, epoxy encapsulated electronics,
audiovisual feedback, and modern low profile design. Suitable for all indoor and outdoor applications, RoxProx
is the rugged proximity reader solution for vandal prone areas and extremely harsh climates.

The model PRX-2 is designed to be mounted directly to the standard single-gang wall box and integrates both a 125KHz proximity reader and keypad into a single unit making it ideal for applications requiring an access credential and/or personal identification number (PIN).

The proximity reader and keypad of the PRX-2 are both capable of transmitting data in 26-Bit Wiegand format, making it compatible with any of the Wiegand equipped Viking entry controllers. The keypad is based on cutting-edge, non-mechanical, capacitive technology, which, unlike membrane keypads, includes no moving parts prone to early failure. Advanced keypad enhancements include fully potted circuit board (EWP), keys with blue LED back-lighting, raised key outlines and pip on the 5-key.

The PRX-2 delivers non-contact read ranges up to 6 inches, and operates from 5 to 14 VDC. Mounting is simplified with horizontal and vertical mounting slots, which allow the reader to be conveniently adjusted and leveled. Concealing the mounting hardware, the PRX-2 ships with both Black and Ash (Off-White) covers.

The PRX-2 comes equipped with Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) for outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation. The PRX-2 features sealed connections, as well as an epoxy potted circuit board. For more information on Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP), see DOD 859.
