Connect the Wiegand board

The Controller Pro 2's Wiegand add-on board is equipped with four Wiegand interfaces, allowing seamless support for up to four legacy hardware devices, like readers or controllers. This includes compatibility with existing legacy credentials.


The Wiegand board is designed to receive and send Wiegand signals only. It will not work for readers and controllers that can only communicate via RS-485. If you are using such readers or controllers, please refer to their documentation to know if an adapter is available.
