The HID VertX products provide a complete and fully featured hardware/firmware infrastructure for access control software host systems.

The V100 Door / Reader Interface connects two access control card readers via Wiegand or Clock-and-Data interface controlling either one or two doors. The V100 features on-board flash memory, allowing program updates to be downloaded via the network. The V100 connects to the V1000 through a high speed RS-485 network. The V1000, in turn, communicates with the system host via industry standard TCP/IP protocol over 10/100 Mbps Ethernet or the Internet. This architecture minimizes the impact on corporate LANs by using only one TCP/IP address for every 32 interfaces and by handling low-level transactions on the RS-485 network.

Key Benefits

  • Reports supervised inputs.
  • Connects to the V1000 via RS-485.
  • Receives and processes real time commands from the V1000.
  • Reports all activity to the V1000.
  • Attractive polycarbonate enclosure protects components from damage.
  • All connections and indicators are fully identified by silk-screened nomenclature on the cover.
  • Processes off-line access control decisions based on facility code.
  • UL 294 and UL 1076 recognized components.


Dimensions: 5.8? W x 4.825? H x 1.275? D (147.32 mm x 122.55 mm x 32.38 mm)

Weight: 12.4 oz (.35 kg)

Power Supply Requirements: 60 mA @ 9-18 VDC (with no readers connected) Recommended: Supervised linear power supply with battery backup, input surge protection, and AC fail and battery low contact outputs. When VertX is supplying power to readers the requirements are 600 mA @ 9-18VDC. The V100 can supply 500 mA to two readers

Cable Distance:

  • RS-485 – 4000 feet (1220 m) to host, using Belden 3105A, 22AWG twisted pair, shielded 100? cable Wiegand – 500 feet (150 m) to reader – using ALPHA 1299C 22AWG, 9-conductor, stranded, overall shield (Fewer conductors needed if all control lines are not used).
  • Input Circuits – 500 feet (150 m), 2-conductor, shielded, using ALPHA 1292C (22AWG) or Alpha 2421C (18AWG)
  • Output Circuits – 500 feet (150 m), 2-conductor, usingALPHA 1172C (22AWG) or Alpha 1897C (18AWG) Minimum wire gauge depends on cable length and current requirements.
