Hello! I just got my first proximity card reader today, and I have absolutely no clue how to hook it up. It's a HID ProxPoint 6005. Here are the pins:

Red- 5-16 Volts dc
Black- ground
Green- data0/data
White- data1/clock
Drain- shield ground
Orange- green led
Brown- red led
Yellow- beep control
Blue- hold
Violet- card present

If someone could please help me set this up with my Arduino, that would be great! I don't have a card because I lost it. I'll try to find it soon.

Thanks,

The data pins are either data0 and data1 for Weigand output or a data an clock pin which will work like an SPI bus master.

Weigand pulses the data0 pin for a 0 bit and the data1 pin for a 1 bit.

The other format you are probably supposed to sample the data line on the falling or rising edge of the clock line pulses.  The easiest way to read it is to hook the clock line to an interrupt pin and sample the data line in the ISR.

I'm a noob. I barely got what you said.

Oh. I've seen people plug a wire strait into the tx port before. So would I tie the data0 and data1 together?

No.  That will not work.
