PR500 / PR500EM
PR500 is a proximity card reader for connection to
indoor and outdoor mounting. The reader is compatible with both active and passive Bewator cards and
tags. Note! Different cards/tags are used for PR500 and PR500EM respectively.
The PR500 proximity reader reads cards or tags without them being in contact with the reader. The reader
continuously transmits a low power radio frequency. When a card or tag is presented within the field of the
reader it activates and transmits a unique identification number back to the reader. The reader then sends
this code to the connected control unit in
See Illustration
on page 9.
Mounting and Mechanical Installation
The reader can be mounted on all types of materials; it can be mounted behind glass or can even be flush
mounted. The only limit is that the reader may not be completely surrounded by metal, if the reader is to be
flush mounted then the distance to surrounded metal should be at least 3 cm, no metal should be directly in
front of the reader. When flush mounting the reader the maximum read range would reduce.
Note! Avoid mounting the reader near sources of electrical noise, such as motors, generators, pumps,
computer installations and mains cabling.
The reader is supplied with the cover separate. If the cover has been fitted, remove it by pushing in the lug
on its lower edge using a suitable screwdriver. At the bottom of the reader there is a knockout to facilitate
cable entry if required. Mount the reader at a height of 000 - 200 mm (from the floor to the bottom edge of
the reader). After installation, fit the top cover by locating its lugs at the top, pushing the bottom of the cover
until it snaps into place.
For outdoor mounting, we recommend that the terminals should be covered with a suitable compound, for
example silicone grease.
All other information regarding installation and programming can be found in the manual supplied with the
control unit.
Please refer to Bewator web site for information how to connect to older door controllers.
Connecting the PR500 to Bewator Entro door central DC22, DC12 - or DC800
Use a screened multicore cable (i.e. Belden 9534/9535/9538) for connection between the reader unit and the
door central. Maximum cable distance is 50 metres. See Illustration  on page 9.
For Bewator Entro - connect to the BCLINK terminal block. Set the link J4 in the door central to +V = Vin
For DC800 - Set jumper J to Vin & jumper J4 to BCLINK.
The power to the door central will then also be fed to the reader.
When the PR500 is powered for the first time, the green and red LEDs light for 4 seconds. Then an Auto detect
procedure starts for approx. 60 seconds where the three LEDs are lit (to configure for BCLINK protocol). It is
important that cards or tags are not presented to the reader until this Auto detect procedure is completed.
Once completed, the LEDs will turn off, a sound is heard and the reader is now ready for use. The readers
LEDs are controlled exclusively by the host system.
Connecting both Entry and Exit readers (BCLINK)
If both Entry and Exit readers are to be used, the Exit reader must be set to an exit function. This is done with
a link between terminal blocks HRN-Adr and DA in the PR500 (before power-up). The initialising process will
then be the same as above.
