The Smart Prox J is a decoded proximity reader available with proximity only, or a combination of proximity, barcode, and/or magnetic stripe. They can be used anywhere where the reading of either barcodes, magnetic stripes, and proximity cards are required, such as visitor systems, security systems, time & attendance systems, hospitals, and college campuses. These readers are available in a wide array of industry standard interfaces, are programmable, and are available with a variety of options, such as leds, relays, and door sense inputs. The Smart Prox J will read all hi and lo-co magstripes, at any density, most barcode symbologies, and proximity cards by Hid and Pyramid. Proximity formats can also be modified using this reader. For example, 26-bit proximity cards can be read and then reformatted into 34-bit outputs. Perfect for use in Access Control and Time & Attendance applications, and any application where the primary card technology is proximity, but temporary badges are made using barcodes or magstripes. The Smart Prox J is available as a combination reader, with internal proximity reading, as a 1-piece proximity-only reader, or as a 2-piece solution, using an external proximity read head for the proximity reading. This 2-piece solution allows proximity readers with either wiegand or aba output to also use the complete functionality of IBC's "J" series readers, such as computer control, and relay activation.  Any application which currently uses "J" series readers using barcode or magstripe can add proximity support using any model or configuration of the Smart Prox J.
