Adding Non-26-bit Cards

Adding Non-26-bit Cards

If you do not know the programmed card format


One of the main benefits of the USB enrollment reader is to enroll 'unknown formats' - for example Mifare CSN (Card Serial Numbers) - These are usually 32 bits.

Note: PXL controllers will only read a maximum of 31 bits but because the unique card serial numbers are non-sequential there is next-to-no chance that the detected numbers will be duplicated.


Enrollment with PXL and NXT Controllers


  1. From Cardholders, click the Add button.


  2. Enter a first and last name (optionally a middle name).
  3. Deselect Calculate Internal Number.
