Protege DIN Rail Mini 2 Reader Expander

Protege DIN Rail Mini 2 Reader Expander
Protege DIN Rail Mini 2
Reader Expander
The Protege DIN Rail Mini 2 Reader Expander provides the
interface of up to 4 reader inputs and 2 locking device Outputs to
the Protege integrated access control, security and building
automation system, an advanced technology security product
providing seamless and powerful integration.
The Reader Expander provides extensive hardware
advancements that provide flexible access control, area control
and alarm monitoring, and is designed for use with Industry
Standard DIN Rail Mounting.
Feature Highlights
Card Reader Connection
Connectivity and System Expansion
> 2 reader ports configurable for either
Wiegand or RS-485 reader operation
The Reader Expander provides 2 reader
ports, each of which can be independently
configured for either Wiegand or RS-485
reader operation, allowing the connection of
up to 4 devices controlling 2 doors.
Expanding the Protege system with local
input and output from the Reader Expander
allows for a convenient, cost effective
expansion and the added benefit of dual
functionality on door monitoring zones:
Choose RS-485 readers for fast, flexible,
secure communication, or Wiegand for
compatibility with all standard access control
systems. RS-485 readers provide the added
benefits of being easier and more cost
effective to wire and deploy, and allow for
direct integration with Protege systems
enabling you to make changes on the fly
once readers are installed. RS-485 also
allows for longer cable runs and offers a
simpler firmware update process.
> 8 inputs can be used to perform any
system alarm and automation functions.
All 8 inputs are assigned functions that
are processed by the Reader Expander
for door control. Each function can be
enabled individually.
> Address configuration of the Reader
Expander interface is achieved using the
address programming feature of the
Protege System Controller.
> Unused reader control outputs can be
used within the system as normal outputs
to control relays, lighting and automation.
> Connect 2 readers using the independent
reader inputs or use the 2 reader
operation to connect 4 readers providing
dual entry and exit door connection
> Control up to 3 outputs per reader input
with predefined configurations for instant
connection (red LED, green LED and
buzzer control)
> Support for intelligent reader tamper
operation - the system will monitor the
reader for reader keep-alive transmissions
using the programmed protocol
> Offline functions including No Users, All
Users and First 10 Users plus 150 Card
> Data received LED indicates a valid
decode of the format
> Fused and monitored reader power
> Over 40 formats predefined for simple
configuration, with additional formats
added using the format builder or
implemented directly using the firmware
update function
> Designed for use with industry standard
DIN Rail mounting
Power Supply
Device power is supplied from a 12VDC
input. Ultra low current requirements ensure
cost effective power distribution.
The Reader Expander allows a user to arm
and disarm an area from an input when
associated with a door:
> Deny access to a user based on the
status of the area, thus reducing false
> Dual presentation of the card can arm an
area associated with the entry or exit
direction of the door being accessed.
> Fail to arm programmable outputs can be
configured to provide feedback in the
event areas fail to arm when using card
reading functions.
> Prevent access to a keypad using a card
and PIN function, or allow card
presentation to automatically login the
user at the associated keypad.
Single RS-485 communication interface port
used for all network communication
functions and interconnection to other
Upgradable Firmware
Utilizing the latest flash technology and high
performance communication mediums, the
firmware can be updated using the Loadit
utility over the system module network.

* The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the Reader Expander and any devices
connected to the Expander's outputs. The Auxiliary outputs are directly connected via electronic fuses to the N+ N- input terminals, and the maximum
current is governed by the trip level of these fuses.
** Each reader port supports either Wiegand or RS485 operation but not both at the same time. If combining Wiegand and RS-485 technologies, they must
be connected on separate ports.
