The energy saving reader is for use with Switch2 or Net2 systems. It is designed to retain a user’s proximity card. The reader is used to ensure that electrical equipment is only switched on when an authorised user card is inserted and retained. When used with Net2, it is multi format and can be used with a choice of access tokens including MIFARE®and EM4100.

MIFARE is a registered trademark of NXP B.V. and is used under license.


Wired as shown on the control unit label. The cable exits centrally from the back of the reader making drilling and mounting very accurate. The relays on Net2 or Switch2 control units are used to provide a voltage free relay toggled output. If used to switch a mains load, then an external mains rated relay should be used.


A proximity card is placed into the reader. It toggles a relay that allows connected equipment to be switched on. When the card is removed, the relay toggles back and turns the equipment off.
