The DS-K1108EK is a card reader with code keys from the access control line of Hikvision. The card reader can be connected via RS-485 or Wiegand.
The beautifully designed card reader can be used both indoors and outdoors. The card reader can read MiFare cards and be connected to Hikvision's Basic + and Pro Complete door controllers.
EM vs MiFare
Hikvision supplies card readers with the possibility to read EM or MiFare. This choice is in the reader and can not be adjusted software-wise. MiFare has a heavier encryption. If other EM solutions are already present, EM can also be selected.
RS-485 vs Wiegand
Hikvision card readers such as the DS-K1108EK have connection possibilities for both Wiegand and RS-485.
Wiegand has the potential disadvantage that more wires (7) are needed to realize the correct connection. After this, however, no more programming is required in the reader and everything can be set via the software.
RS-485 has the advantage that fewer veins are needed (4). Another big advantage of RS-485 is that the reader supports two-way communication with the door controller. RS-485 can also be operated in a bus form instead of star topology. With RS-485, however, it is necessary for this reason to give the readers the corresponding address via dipswitch. The sequence affects the setting options and therefore requires attention when making the setting. Readers who are seen as ingress are numbered oddly, readers used when entering the secure zone are numbered as even.
