Lenel Access Reader Distance Issue

Trying to find a solution to an "Invalid Card Format " issue using the Lenel Access control system. Issue is a Distance issue for the Reader data. In the past we have used the Cypress extender modules, 1200 series. We are using the Cypress 1300 reader extenders here with MR-5 Mag stripe reader. Have tried different setups per manufactuer recommendations with no luck. Has anyone else used something diferent or have setup we could try?


Hello, What distance do you need?

Also please give precise details on the wire you are using for this reader

We r using standard 18/6 stranded copper shielded cable

Can you describe the twist of the cables in the reader?

What did you do with the shield of the wire?
