Does anybody have any information on the Wiegand Protocol used in security systems? I have noticed that there are a few different implementations of the protocol but I can't find any information on the net.

Is there a specification available, and where can I get hold of it?
Can somebody please help?

Thanx
TheBoss :(

wiegand 26 protocol

Hi,

it is a 3 wire (GND, DATA0, DATA1):

0's are impulses on DATA0 line
1's are impulses on DATA1 line

data bits are prefixed and postfixed with parity
length of data bits chunk can vary from 24-40 bits

i have somewhere in the archive my very old
asm implementation for atmel (51 core)
if you are interested ...

wiegand protocol pdf

It is a protocol that is used in "Access Control Systems" mostly the wireless ones, the Door reader reads induces electric field throug its Antenna when the card is in the coverage field, it returns back a certain number that is the card number.
Card Numbers can be formatted in many formats like the Wiegand and 35 system
The wiegand-26- as an example splits the 26 bits into two groups of 13 bits
the first group is used as a group identifier that all users within a corporate share, the other is user specific

wiegand protocol

Hi

You no need to see the timing digrame, you can used the interrup base, if u using the PIC16f84 you can used the portb 4:7 as input and setting as interrup base port.

good luck
