718 Data Converter

Fully programmable data converter for access systems, with Usb interface.


The 718 converter is a user programmable converter which will convert any of the following formats:  magnetic stripe (tracks 1 & 2), wiegand (standard, alphanumeric, and aba weigand), serial, wand emulation, and f2f. Up to 250 bits can be processed for both inputs and outputs. 

The converter has two inputs and two outputs. One of the inputs supports either track 1 magstripe, track 2 magstripe, or standard wiegand. The other input supports Usb serial. For Rs232 support, see the model 716 converter. Each input is programmed separately and operates independently of the other.

The converter supports full masking and reorganization of data from both input ports. It can change the organization of wiegand bit streams, insert or override site codes, ID numbers, issue codes, and constants. Both MSB modes and LSB modes are supported. Additionally, characters, numbers, or bits can be deleted, inserted, or extracted from any received data prior to transmission. Parity checking can also be enabled for the purpose of reading standard legacy wiegand cards in both directions.

In addition to the conversions which are available, the 716 can also dump received data through the serial port, bit by bit. This is a useful function for debugging or identifying the bit streams from proximity and magstripe cards. 

Serial-to-serial masking, and preprocessing functions to support Amtech toll tags, are also standard features.

718 Data Converters are also avvailable with an on-board relay. See model 718R.
