USB Enrollment Reader Enrollment
Keri Part Number - RDR-ENR1
The ENR-1 is a simple and efficient USB enrollment reader . It has a small form factor and is capable of reading a multitude of 125KHz proximity cards and 13.56MHz contactless cards and is compatible with Doors.NET (v22.214.171.124 or higher) and Visual Doors software (v4.4.0 or higher).
Using the pcProxConfig software you can quickly and easily configure the USB reader to use one of over 45 different card types including the following:
- Deister UID
- EM 410x (EM 4102, EM 4105)
- Farpointe Data Pyramid PSC-1
HID iCLASS CSN
- HID iCLASS ID
HID iCLASS SE ID
- HID Prox
Indala 26 bit (Motorola)
- ISO 14443A CSN
ISO 15693 CSN
- MIFARE® DESFire (+EV1 and EV2)
Important Note: The pcProx Plus reader is capable of reading Keri's KC-10X, KC-26X and Keri NXT cards but it does not correctly decode the credential's facility code and imprint number. As a result we DO NOT recommend using this reader for those card types. You should use one of the alternative Doors.NET enrollment methods (Presentation, Manual or Block enroll). This reader is primarily designed for situation where you do not know the programmed card number.
By default the pcProxPlus USB enrollment reader is configured to read HID prox and HID iClass credentials.
Note: When presentation enrolling DESFire EV1 and Mifare credentials you will have the ability to read the cards unique Card Serial Number (CSN), it will not provide you with the ability to load encryption keys and read data stored in one of the card's secure memory 'sectors'.
When cards are enrolled, the card's internal number will be detected, this is the number which is subsequently processed by Doors.NET.
You will need to enter a custom Wiegand format if you wish to detect the card's programmed information, such as the facility code (where applicable) and printed card number (imprint). If you enroll cards which are programmed with industry standard 26-bit then this additional information is detected automatically (simply select Calculate Internal Number and verify that Wiegand 26-bit is selected from the format drop-down list.
The following steps explain how to install the pcProx configuration utility to set a Mifare format to the reader and then how to presentation enroll a Mifare card using the USB enrollment reader. You can then use the credential with a Mifare-compatible proximity reader, such as the Delta 3 or Delta 5 by Farpointe Delta, for standard access control.
2.0 Install the pcProx Config Software
The pcProx configuration software is a third-party utility that allows you to configure the desired credential data output for the reader. The software is quick and easy to install and is used for identifying card types, analyzing card data and configuring the reader to match the same format for your credential type.

3.1 Detecting the Credential Format
If you are not 100% sure of a credential's programmed format you can use the Card Analyser feature that is built into the pcProx config software. When you analyse the card it will use all the different formats it has available to it to detect which matches the presented card. The detected card format will then be displayed.
- From the PcProx client, click on the Card Analyser button.
