Unmatched Range and Performance

The cornerstone of the LR-3000’s appeal lies in its exceptional long-range capabilities. Engineered to operate in the Ultra-High-Frequency (UHF) band, the LR-3000 facilitates RFID applications such as automatic vehicle identification (AVI) and physical access control from distances of up to 25 feet. This capability ensures seamless gate access for vehicles and secure, efficient entry for individuals, even in high-traffic scenarios. The integration of electronics and antenna into a single, compact enclosure enhances its performance while maintaining an attractive appearance suitable for various installations.

Seamless Integration with AWID's uAxcess Line

A standout feature of the LR-3000 is its compatibility with AWID's uAxcess line of UHF readers, allowing for a harmonious access control ecosystem. This integration ensures that the same hand-held card can be used for both vehicle parking access and building entry, simplifying the user experience and reducing the need for multiple access credentials. This seamless integration represents a forward-thinking approach to access control, where efficiency and user convenience are paramount.

Advanced Security Features

Security is a non-negotiable aspect of any access control system, and the LR-3000 excels in this area using proprietary encryption. This encryption ensures secure communication between the reader and its UHF tags and hand-held cards, safeguarding against unauthorized access and ensuring that only legitimate entries are granted. The presence of visual indicators, such as steady red and blinking green LEDs, provides immediate feedback on system status, enhancing security monitoring and operational awareness.

Durability and Ease of Installation

Designed with the challenges of outdoor environments in mind, the LR-3000 boasts an IP65 protection class rating, ensuring it can withstand exposure to the elements without the need for additional protective housing. Its installation process is straightforward, requiring no programming and minimal wiring, which significantly reduces setup times and allows for greater flexibility in deployment.

Technological Advancements

The LR-3000 operates on a license-free 902-928 MHz UHF band, combining effective UHF technology with economically passive tags and cards. It offers field-programmable read repeat rates and RF field strength, alongside simultaneous Wiegand and RS-232 data outputs, ensuring compatibility with standard access control and AVI systems. This blend of advanced features makes the LR-3000 a versatile tool in the access control arsenal, capable of meeting a wide range of security needs.

Applications and Use Cases

The versatility of the LR-3000 allows it to be deployed in a variety of settings, from parking facilities and gated communities to corporate campuses and healthcare institutions. Its ability to provide quick and secure access for both vehicles and individuals makes it an ideal solution for places where flow efficiency and security are critical. Additionally, its long-range reading capabilities are particularly beneficial in environments where traditional close-range readers might pose logistical challenges or slow down entry processes.


The AWID LR-3000 Long-Range Reader stands out as a comprehensive solution for modern access control challenges. Its combination of long-range capabilities, seamless integration with the uAxcess line, advanced security features, and ease of installation position it as a top choice for security and access control professionals. As organizations continue to seek out efficient, secure, and user-friendly access control solutions, the LR-3000 represents a forward-thinking choice that can adapt to the evolving demands of the security landscape.
