Integrated System
Integrated Security & Access Control
The Challenger System is designed as a fully integrated security and access control system –
integration of security and access control user operations and field hardware greatly improve
the versatility of your system, while simplifying its operation and system management.
Wireless
Where cabling of your system is not feasible, or handheld duress radio devices are required, the
Challenger System can become a wireless alarm system. The integration of Challenger wireless
modules greatly enhances the suitability of a Challenger System to current and future applications that
your organisation may require.
Challenger Panel
System Operation
The Challenger Panel is the hub of GE’s integrated alarm and access control system, through which
all security events pass. Based on a modular design, the Challenger system provides a flexible upgrade
path for existing systems. Increasing the number of inputs, outputs and access control doors is
achieved easily with the addition of GE Data Gathering Panels, Access
Controllers and Relay Cards and expansion of the Challenger Panel’s
memory is also possible with Plug-in RAM modules of various capacities.
All of these features are programmed using an LCD Arming Station or
using Management Software.
Challenger can control alarm points, access control doors & lifts, lighting,
heating & air conditioning, video switching, bank vaults, plant
equipment, warehousing access control, and can automate most building
& office environments.
Operating the Challenger System is as simple as presenting a smart access card to the Challenger Smart
Reader, or entering a PIN code at the Challenger LCD code pad. Both alarm area control and door /
floor access can be achieved from a single user action at either the reader or code pad. This integration
of alarm and access control provides a simple yet powerful interface to the Challenger System.
Software System Management
access control
Users
Depending on your requirements, the Challenger System can grow with your organisation. To provide
you with easy control over your Challenger System, the optional Titan or ARES Management Software
application can be used. Whether its one large site, or many hundreds of sites across a geographical
area, the Challenger Management Software provides a simplified user interface to
handle every aspect of your Challenger System.
Connecting It All Together…
Up to 65000 employees can be issued an access card or PIN code to be used for area control and/or
door and floor access. Each system user can be allocated times and days that system control is available
to them. Fine-tuning of system control is achieved by the separate allocation of alarm, door, and floor
access times. This provides management with increased user configuration options where complex
user movements are a part of organisational structure.
The Challenger System is capable of utilising an existing LAN or WAN via TCP/IP
connectivity of multiple Challenger Systems. This allows for increased site
integration while greatly reducing communications costs.
Challenger Version 8
The Challenging Application…
Access Levels
The Challenger System has had many years of experience in the Australian and New Zealand
corporate markets. Many dedicated devices have been developed to meet the ever-growing demands
of Challenger System users. This constant development ensures that the Challenger System delivers
world-leading application solutions for your organisation’s needs.
Access to hundreds of doors and floors can be managed by time and date down to an individual user
level. Challenger can be expanded to accommodate up to 65535 fully programmable users. Each user
can be allocated privileges related to alarm area control (Alarm Group), door access (Door Group), &
floor access (Floor Group). Access levels can be restricted to time periods (Time Zones).

The strict control of personnel movements within
mine boundaries is paramount to maintaining safety
and security. A recent incident where a gas leak put
lives at risk demonstrates just how important this is. I
was able to identify who was at risk, and their
proximity to the leak, by generating a report within
minutes using our Challenger Management Software
application.
Thankfully, this incident was managed without
serious injury to our personnel. The Challenger
System made sure that only miners with the
relevant training worked in the more hazardous
areas of the mine, so those exposed to the gas leak
were of an expertise level better able to deal with such
an occurrence. And being able to identify who was in
the affected area, and their physical condition, gave
me the information to make the right decision – fast!

In the event of an incident, I need to know exactly
where all of my personnel are at any given time, and
because they are working in extremely hazardous
conditions, I need a way to monitor their well-being at
regular intervals.
During this time, it was critical that no unauthorised
personnel had access to any potentially hazardous
areas. This was managed for us by the Challenger
Access Control System. The isolated miners were able
to continually check in with the Challenger, letting us
know they were alive.
