Extending the Protege system with local inputs and outputs allows convenient, cost-effective expansion with the following additional benefits:
- 8 inputs can be assigned to any 4 areas in the system each being processed using different options or features
- 4 multiple-function outputs available for use in any programmable output configuration
- Outputs can be configured to automatically turn on or resume their previous state upon restoration of power or communication failure
- Address configuration is achieved using the address programming feature of the Protege System Controller.
