Challenger Control Panels
Interlogix’s Challenger V8 integrated security platform is widely
considered the leading commercial security system in Australia
and New Zealand. Challenger is used in universities, financial
institutions, retail stores, supermarkets and prisons, to name only
a few.
The Challenger system consolidates access control, intrusion
detection, video surveillance, and communications in one
platform. Combined with modular hardware, distributed
intelligence, and powerful software, a Challenger security
platform can be scaled for any application.
Cardholders enjoy the convenience of one-card operations,
using the same card action to open doors while disarming areas
(or locking doors while rearming areas).
Challenger panels can report alarms and other programmed
events in Contact ID format (CID) to the central station and/
or management software via the onboard dialer. The optional
TS0898 IP interface provides 128-bit encrypted IP connections
for alarm reporting and for system management, in which case
the panel’s onboard dialer can be used as a backup in case IP
communications are lost.
Local annunciation and detailed reporting are also available,
by user- selected schedules and areas, so that security
professionals can install custom intrusion detection systems for
every client.
Up to 16 remote arming stations (keypad or reader) can be
Up to 256 inputs and 64 doors with use of expansion
Up to 255 freely programmable relay outputs
Memory expansion modules enable a Challenger panel to
store 1,000 each of alarm events and access events (100
for standard memory)
Memory expansion modules enable a Challenger panel to
accommodate up to 65,535 users
Programmed via LCD keypad arming stations or via
Interlogix Security management software
Arming and disarming can be automated to occur at
particular times, days and/or when particular events occur
in a system
Programmable holidays modify existing access restrictions
Management software computers may be connected locally
via direct RS-232, by modem, or via IP connection
Built-in dialer for monitoring or for remote system
Optional interfaces for IP or RS-232 connections
Permissions for individual users to arm and disarm areas,
permission to access doors, lifts, and floors (or other
equipment) in Challenger’s access control system
System input devices can be monitored for tamper
Extensive macro logic functionality can be used to program
complicated sequences of events (for example, to prevent two
doors from being opened simultaneously).
Challenger constantly polls devices on the RS-485 data bus to
check for online status.
The system’s input devices can be monitored for tamper
conditions (open or shorted) in addition to the default monitoring
for sealed or alarm conditions.
Powerful System Architecture
The TS0816 Challenger panel is the heart of the system, and comprises a modular ‘Add as you go’
design. You can cost-effectively add capacity and function as it is required, by adding intelligent
door or lift controllers, input/output expanders, memory expanders and LAN devices. Multiple
panels can be linked together in one system via management software.
Challenger uses a cost-effective and reliable RS-485 data bus for communications between
Challenger hardware that is capable of running long distances while minimizing cable runs.
Challenger data can even be carried by optical fibres (optional interface modules required.
