--Feel free answer in English or German-- Hello, I just received my two Wiegand RFID readers: 2x http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=201010161618&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:DE:1123 (001, ID) Unfortunately, when I power up the reader (DC+12V on red cable, GND on black cable), my Reader is only beeping and red LED lights up. I receive nearly no data from the reader (even if there is a tag), only some zeros during the red cable is connected. Even after about one minute, the reader keeps beeping and LED keeps being on. I also tried the other reader I ordered from you (same model) and the same happened. It makes no difference if I connect the other 2 cables (blue (purple) and/or gray (ash)) to ground. What is my mistake? Thank you, Johann K.

I got no cards/tags with this reader. I bought some from i-keys: Ebay-Artikel Nr. 200774233159 I don't know if there is a documentation, but my reader is similar to http://www.i-keys.de/de/A20Acr.html But I think that a "one-minute-beep" can't be a normal feature.
To recognize any valid card the reader must be programmed with their IDs. If the reader doesnt know any valid IDs, he probably will beep to indicate, that he was not teached to validate any ID-cards. Try to get any informations of how to teach the reader the access control informations of your i-key cards.
Thank you for your answer. I think you misunderstood what my reader does. It is only a "raw" reader which sends the ids of the cards to the controller (I try to use a raspberry pi). So you can't "teach" this reader; It will accept any cards and the raspberry pi will check if the id is permitted.

If this is true, so it's up to you, to validate any card-IDs within the software. BTW: the egay link is not that informative to answer any further upcoming questions...

I use a raspberry pi with pidoorman, but this is not my problem. My reader only beeps all the time (I mean it never pauses beeping) and I don't know what I am doing wrong. The only thing I could imagine is the wiring. I connected a zener and a resistor (like shown at http://tonigor.com/pidoorman/images/ProtectionCircuit.jpg) to each D0 and D1 and connected GND and DC+12V to my DC12V power supply. The two other cables (see eBay link above for more information) were left "in the air".
Hello again! I just want to you all the end of my story. I had some e-mail contact with the trader and I got my money back. So I ordered 2 new ones. Some days ago, the 2 new readers arrived and... worked. So it seems that my readers was broken. Thank you for your help and advice, Johann K.
i have an HID multiClass card reader with HID 1430 1L, though the card reader is seeing my card but it is not granting access to open the door through Axix1001 A controller, please what can i do?
