Protege DIN Rail
8 Input Expander

PRT-ZX8-DIN

The Protege DIN Rail 8 Input Expander provides an additional 8 inputs (16 if using Input Duplex mode) for monitoring and automation in the Protege system. With inputs that can be used for extended monitoring functionality, the Input Expander provides extensive hardware advancements that allow flexible input programming and configuration, and is designed for use with industry standard DIN Rail mounting.

  • 8 monitored inputs
  • 4 state input alarm using resistors to provide short, alarm, closed and tamper conditions
  • Connect any combination of normally closed or normally open inputs, configurable per input

Features

Extending the Protege system with local inputs and outputs allows convenient, cost-effective expansion with the following additional benefits:

  • 8 inputs (16 with Input Duplex mode) can be assigned to any 4 areas in the system each being processed using different options or features
  • Address configuration is achieved using the address programming feature of the Protege System Controller

A single RS-485 communication interface port used for all network communication functions and interconnection to other modules.

Device power is supplied from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensure cost-effective power distribution.

Utilizing the latest flash technology and high performance communication mediums, the firmware can be updated via the Protege interface.

* The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the expander and any devices connected to its outputs. The auxiliary outputs are directly connected via thermal resettable fuses to the N+ N- input terminals, and the maximum current is governed by the trip level of these fuses.
