Compatible Card Readers for Physical Access Gatway

Hello,

I have a Cisco Physical Access Gatway and want to experiment with it with a reader. What are the epecs required for a proximity reader in order to work with the gateway. I learned a bit a bout the Weigand interface. I need help though to learn more about all the specs I need to look for in a simple proximity reader. E.g. (PIN assignement, Voltage, etc). Finally I'd be grateful if someone sheds light on the difference between Weigand 26-bit vs Weigand 34-bit and which is the one I should go for in the new reader.

Thanks

We use alot of HID i-class readers, if that helps, the colors on a 5-wire or 6-wire or etc. are pretty standard, most of the info you'd want is in the gateway user's guides and possibly the quick start guide.  But for the answers on more detailed proximity info or the 26-bit/34-bit differences you'll need more help, i suggest also HID themselves if Cisco forums does not offer up your answers.
