AXS-100 Slave Controller - Alarm International Systems
AXS-100 Slave Controller
For AXS-100 and AXS100XT Access Control Systems
Installation Guide
The AXS-100 Slave Controller is a cost effective solution that
extends AXS-100 or AXS100XT access control system
functionality up to 16 doors on a single RS-485 data loop using
any combination of up to *8 ‘Master’ or ‘Slave’ controllers.
Each AXS-100 slave controller operates in real-time with
distributed intelligence and a full mirror database for offline
conditions. Should a communication failure occur between any of
the slaves and the master controller or between the master
controller and the host computer, each AXS-100 slave controller
will continue to function normally with no degradation in
performance and response times of card reading, alarm
activation or activation of logic events. Each AXS-100 slave can
also monitor the status of the protected doors (open or closed)
and the status of the door locks (locked or unlocked).
Initial system configuration is programmed via the master
controller’s keypad. Functionality such as event log access, card
holder programming and/or mode updates are handled via EIRIS
V4.6 (or higher) or AXSalert enterprise software.
*One ‘Master controller’ is required for each RS-485 data loop.
CAUTION: It is important that you read, understand, and
follow the instructions in this document. If you have
questions, call your local VT support representative.
1. Mounting and Initial Assembly
Fig. 2 - Backup Battery
Metal Box Mounting
The AXS-100 Slave Controller must be installed indoors, within
the protected premise, in accordance with the National Electrical
Code (NFPA70) and the local authorities having jurisdiction.
Note: Do not connect (the transformer) to a power receptacle that
is controlled by a switch.
B. Backup Battery Installation (Optional)
Locate the optional backup battery (12V, 7.0Ah, Lead-acid
battery) in the lower left side of the system enclosure (see fig. 2).

C. Metal Box Door Lock Assembly
D. Tamper Switch Installation & Wiring
The door lock assembly of the system metal box is presented in
figure 3 (the lock and the brass nut are supplied in the system
accessories box).
It is necessary to protect the controller against tampering. A UL
Listed Tamper switch must be installed (see fig. 4) and wired to
AUXIN1 and COM of lock #3 of each controller.
Align lock with the prepunc he d hole and
insert it into the hole.
Place the brass nut on the
lock, tighten by hand and
finally tighten with
spanner (7/8”). Verify that
you can lock the door (key
rotation of 90 degrees).

2. Panel Wiring
A. Proximity Readers
Each Slave Controller can be connected to two proximity readers:
Each reader is connected to the controller via a 4-wire cable.
The standard cable is color coded as follows:
Power +
• BLACK Power –
Use extension cables with the same colors to avoid connection
Note 1: Installing a RDR-4 on a metal surface or a metal door
frame significantly decreases read range. If the reader must be
installed on a metal surface, use the RDR-BACK so that the
reader will be at least 1 cm (3/8 in.) away from the metal material
Page 3 of 6
Note 2: When installing more than one RDR-4, the distance
between them should be at least 60 cm (2 ft.), to ensure proper
B. Inputs
Each AXS-100 Slave Controller can be connected to two inputs
per door as described below:
• Request-to-Exit (RTE) button or PIR: Installed near the
door in the secure area will allow a person to open the door
from within for leaving.
• Door Position micro switch: Installed between the door
and door frame will provide the controller with door status
Both the RTE and the Door Position inputs can be connected to
either normally open or normally closed switches. The default is a
normally open RTE and normally closed Door Position (when the
door is shut).
C. Locks
The AXS-100 Slave Controller can be connected to two electric
locks as described below:
Each slave controller can operate both electromagnetic strikes EMS (normally open) and electromagnetic locks - EML (normally
closed). Each connector block has a COMMON as well as N.O.
and N.C. connectors.
If the slave controller is configured for one door, connect it to the
EMS/EML, which is located on the left side of the controller.
All types of connections are detailed in the next drawing.

----- Power+
Normally Closed
----- Power+

----- Power
Non-12VDC or

devices - Dry

Non-12VDC or

devices - Dry

The lock sections include also 12V power connectors. These
connectors provide power to the lock with a current limit of 400mA
for each lock. The slave controller supplies power from a backup
battery if available when the AC power is down. Electromagnetic
locks which constantly draw large currents should use the dry
contact ONLY without connecting the internal power supply. The
same holds true for any other device, which does NOT operate at
If you notice problems with a slave controller operating an EMS
that uses an internal power supply, connect the diode supplied
between + and – of the EMS output (see Panel Wiring Diagram).
D. Controller Configuration
Up to seven AXS-100 slave controllers can be connected to a
Master AXS-100/AXS-100 XT controller using a single twisted
pair cable. Each controller (irregardless of type) provides a
3-connector block for daisy chaining the devices in a bus type
3. Maintenance
Periodic Check
Once a month, the AXS-100 Slave Controller must be checked by
presenting a tag/card to the reader and verifying that the proper
door is opened
Lithium Battery Handling/Disposal
Replace battery with PANASONIC Coin battery type CR2032, 3V
only. Use of another battery may present a risk of fire or
Caution: Battery may explode if mistreated, do not recharge,
disassemble or dispose in fire. Dispose any used Lithium battery
only in an approved disposal container.

Each AXS-100 Slave Controller has to be assigned a unique ID
address before the device can be fully functional. Since each
RS-485 data loop MUST contain a Master Controller whose ID
address is always set to 1, the ID addresses of the slave(s) units
are range from 2…….8. Addresses

8 master or slave controllers.
NOTE: One master controller is required for each RS-485 data loop.
Connections between the controllers must be implemented with CAT-5 twisted pair cable. The maximum distance between
controller #1 (Master) and the furthest one (controller #8) is no longer than 1,200 meters.
The circuit board of the AXS-100 controller (irregardless of type) contain 3-connector blocks for daisy chaining up to 7 (seven)
slave controllers to one Master AXS-100/AXS-100 XT controller in a bus configuration. Connect terminal B to B and D to D,
GND to GND, this way up to seven slave controllers.
