Keri’s MS Series Proximity Readers are designed to blend aesthetics, read range performance, and small package size with an extremely thin profi le into a product that is priced signifi cantly less than competing proximity readers. The readers are for use exclusively with Keri’s access control system based on the PXL-500 Tiger and the NXT-2D and NXT-4D Controllers.
The smallest readers in the series are the MS-3000 MicroStar™ Reader and the MS-5000 MiniStar™ Reader. The MicroStar Reader measures just 3.4” long x 1.4” wide x 0.38” thick (86mm x 36mm x 10mm) thick, and is designed to mount on a metal window or door frame (mullion) or directly on a wall. Read range is up to 4” (10cm). The MiniStar Reader measures 4.3” long x 3.0” wide x 0.38” thick (109mm x 76mm x 10mm), and can be mounted on a single gang electrical box or fl at on a wall. Read range is up to 6” (15cm) when mounted at least one inch off metal. If the reader is mounted using a metal electrical junction box with the thickness of the wall material separating the reader from the box, read range will be reduced.
The MS-7000 SuperStar™ Reader measures just 8.5” long x 6” wide x 0.83” thick (21.6cm x 15.2cm x 2.1cm), with a read range of up to 14” (35cm). This reader is designed for applications where greater read range adds to the convenience of the system, such as parking access or physically challenged access.
The readers are attractively designed with a thin profi le and modern appearance. The readers are compatible with Keri’s KC-10X and MT-10X proximity card styles as well as the small, extremely robust PKT-10X Key Tag. Additionally, they can read any Indala ASP Card or Tag if they are to be used in conjunction with a PXL-500 Controller.
