The ProxLin MCR card reader is ProxTech’s most versatile wall mount reader. Also available in both 125 kHz as well as in 13,56 MHz versions with a lot of available data interfaces, this reader has shown to be the ideal solution for mid range reading in applications where wall mounting is required. An extra mounting frame makes it very easy to mount this reader when the signal cable is placed on top of the wall; you can just feed it through the mounting frame.

All MCR and MCR/K reader versions can be supplied with a wide selection of different data interfaces, such as various Wiegand or Clock&Data outputs, but also RS232, RS485 or customer specific interfaces
