Use RTMU86 with ZKTeco access control panel via Wiegand interface for access control system

RTMU86 is a scanner specially designed for access control systems. It can scan 1D 2D bar codes and read NFC cards, and supports Wiegand 26 and Wiegand 34 output. The read information is transmitted to the access controller through the Wiegand signal and the control door to be opened.
