In our many years of dealing with Access Control equipment, we have found that certain proximity readers do not work well if at all with metal gate posts or goose neck posts. Signal interference from the metal posts can cause issues, especially for plastic surround proximity readers. Paxton Plastic Proximity readers or Keypad Prox do not work on a Metal Gate Posts. We would always recommend using a metal proximity reader on a metal post as these proximity readers are designed to compensate for the metal element. If a plastic proximity is used and interference does occur you can try sitting the proximity reader onto a different substrate between it and the metal gate post, you may find that sitting the proximity reader 10mm to 40mm away from the post removes the interference on the read. Mounting the plastic reader onto or even into a plastic back box (used as a rain hood) or equivalent like a RTM115-BLK may help with your read.
