IXM devices have provisions to allow for other Wiegand devices (ie. External card reader) to be connected and provide signals for Wiegand Input.

Utilizing the Wiegand Input feature requires the following:

  • Hard wire connections to the Wiring Harness of the IXM device.
  • Configuration of the Wiegand Input settings in IXM WEB.

The Wiegand Input settings in IXM WEB supports up to 5 Wiegand formats, Wiegand PassThru and Cards Passthru functions.

There are two Pre-defined Wiegand Formats setup by default:

  1. Standard 26 bit
  2. IXM 42 bit EM Prox

Hard Wire Connections

The Wiegand Input connections are highlighted below and can be located on the Bottom Connector of the Wiring Harness of the IXM device. The corresponding outputs from the Wiegand device should be connected to these wires.

INVIXIUM recommends the use of the all ground wires.
