Do you have a spec on the gate operator/parking arm?
Generally the interface between the controller/reader and the operator is just a set of simple contacts. When someone presents a valid card, the controller sends an impulse to the operator that kicks it in the pants and tells it to raise the arm (instead of a strike or maglock). In technology terms, this is really simple.
The question here is how many sets of input contacts the operator has available. Ideally, it has multiple sets (buttons, readers, ground loops, etc...) and you can just connect your new controller to one of those sets.
Thanks for the info. The existing reader is a MaxiProx 5375 and I'd like to duplicate that for the residential reader. There must be an issue with crosstalk if they are mounted too close together, do you know of a standard range they must be installed away from each other?
Existing access control is Paxton which we'll tie in a wireless Nano Net2.
