Protege Half DIN Rail
16 Input Expander

PRT-HZX16-DIN

The Protege  Half DIN Rail 16 Input Expander provides an additional 16 inputs 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.

  • 16 multi purpose 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:

  • 16 inputs 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

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

The additional wall mounting feature provides absolute convenience and flexibility in module positioning.

The compact two-tier half DIN rail module design occupies less valuable real estate to provide more control in less space.

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

The input expander features comprehensive diagnostic indicators that can aid in diagnosing faults and conditions. LED indicators on the input expander include:

  •  Status indicator
  • Fault indicator
  • Power indicator
  • Input indicators

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 Input 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.
