Topic: Setting the Power Reader Select jumper to the appropriate configuration to allow power to the reader.
Summary: The Series 3 access control panel’s jumper setting is utilized differently than previous series boards. By default, the Power Reader Select jumper is in the 12V position. If powering a 12-volt reader, the Power Reader Select jumper must be set to pass through (PASS/PT). This allows power to pass-through the input voltage of the control panel. Readers that require different voltage or have high current requirements should be powered separately.
