Paxton Readers Now Include ‘Genuine HID Technology’

Customers can now use existing HID 125kHz credentials already issued on several Paxton readers, including the company’s desktop enrollment model.

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Paxton, a provider of IP-based access control, door entry and building intelligence systems, has added technology by HID Global to its most popular readers.

The company, based here, has expanded its P50M, P75, Net2 PaxLock and Net2 entry reader range by adding Genuine HID Technology. Customers can now use existing HID 125kHz credentials already issued on any of these readers, including the company’s desktop enrollment model.

Wiegand communications have also been added and will be offered in addition to clock and data on the P50M and P75, making these readers highly versatile with Paxton solutions or third-party panels, according to the company. The initial phase also includes the release of v5.03 SR3 software, containing the firmware for Net2 PaxLock US, required for use with HID 125kHz proximity tokens.

“This is something that our customers have told us they want and we have listened. With the release of this technology, taking over an existing system is even easier,” says Chris Wilson, product manager, Paxton. “Simply enroll your HID 125kHz tokens in the Paxton system and continue to use them alongside Paxton tokens without changing any hardware.”

Eventually, Paxton’s full reader line will be updated with the HID technology, enabling all of its readers to be used with other Wiegand systems, according to Wilson.
