718R Data Converter with Relay

Fully programmable data converter for access systems, with an internal relay and Usb interface.


The 718R 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 718R also contains a form-c relay which can be controlled by serial commands.

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.

In addition to the conversions which are available, the 718R 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. 

Note that the 718R converter can perform conversions in one direction only. This is due to a limitation on the RJ45 connector. A user-removable jumper on the board allows the 718R to process data from serial (usb) to wiegand, wieaba, alphawie, track1, track2, f2f, and wand emulation, or, convert wiegand, track1, etc. to usb serial.
