What’s a WILDR?
WILDR-MIU is a wireless device that provides several industry standard interfaces; RS-232, RS-485, RS-422, 8 buffered GPIO lines (General Purpose Input/Output lines), and a Console port that connects to a PC, or a laptop to configure the radio’s operating parameters. The range of the transceiver is about 1 mile outdoors, and several hundred feet indoors, depending on the building composition. The RF output is adjustable to 21 dBm, applied to a 7 dBi gain antenna, with the receive sensitivity of –104 dBm. There are 15 RF channels. The serial I/O ports accept data rates from 4.8 kilobits per second (kbps) to 115.2 kbps. Over the air transmission is encrypted with site specific code. WILDR also performs hardware interface translation, for example the transmitting WILDR serial interface can be configured as RS-232, and the receiving WILDR serial interface can be configured as RS-485.

Important note to OEMs: The product is available without firmware for OEM use. The board contains 2x RS-232 ports, 1 RS-485 port, and 1 RS-422 port. There are 8 bidirectional buffered I/O ports. 5 internal lines control the direction of the GPIO ports; three lines control three groups of 2 GPIO ports, and the remaining 2 lines control the last 2 GPIO ports individually. The RF transmit and receive paths contain amplifiers to provide 10dB of gain in each path. There are 2 sets of antennas available for use; 2 on-board IFA, and 2 RP-SMA ports are available for connection to monopole antennas. Please contact us for further inquiries.
A companion (plug-in) board (aux-board) connects to the GPIO lines, and enables WILDR to operate as an integral part of a Security and Access Control System. It allows an ACS panel to use WILDR to communicate with a remote Reader wirelessly. A second WILDR – aux-board combination at the Reader location controls all door functions such as request to exit button, door position sensor, reader lines (data lines, led lines, tamper), and electric door strike. All door functions are powered by WILDR eliminating the need for a battery to power door devices. The reader data can be Wiegand (data0, data1), or Magnetic stripe (Clock & Data). All card formats are supported up to 8183 bits. The RS-485 interface can be used between the Access Control Server and individual access panels, eliminating the need to install conduits, and cable.
