The Protege GX DIN Rail Integrated System Controller is the central processing unit responsible for the control of security, access control and building automation in the Protege GX system. It communicates with all system modules, stores all configuration and transaction information, processes all system communication, and reports alarms and system activity to a monitoring station or remote computer.
Providing a highly sophisticated access control solution with large user capacity and extensive features:
Extending the Protege System with onboard local inputs and outputs allows convenient cost effective expansion without the increased cost of modules for simple system functions:
The Protege GX system's advanced programming features provide endless opportunities for customized automation. Output follows input programming allows any output or output group in the system to be intelligently controlled by any input or input type. This has a wide variety of applications: from turning on lights and climate control when motion is detected, to unlocking a specific door with a key switch, or auto arming an area after a period of inactivity.
Programmable functions are special applications that implement logical control of outputs, doors, areas, and other devices:
The Protege controller offers integration with a wide range of third party systems:
Featuring advanced integration of arming and disarming solutions for control of hundreds of alarm areas:
RS-485 communication interface, onboard 2400bps modem, and a 10/100 Ethernet communications port provide a complete solution for system expansion, offsite monitoring, system communication and integration.
The controller incorporates a host of offsite reporting options:
Onboard Ethernet communication allowing direct connection from a local PC or interconnection to an existing LAN/WAN:
Provides 2 reader ports that can be independently configured for either Wiegand or RS-485 reader operation, allowing the connection of up to 4 readers controlling 2 doors.
Choose Wiegand readers for compatibility with all standard access control systems, or RS-485 for fast, secure communication.
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.
OSDP protocol configuration in RS-485 offers additional security and adds scalability, flexibility and ease of implementation.*
* The ICT implementation of OSDP conforms to a subset of the OSDP functionality. For specifications and reader configuration, refer to AN-254 Configuring OSDP Readers.
Firmware can be upgraded directly from the Protege GX software.

* 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. The Bell output is connected in the same way.
** Each reader port supports either Wiegand or RS-485 reader operation, but not both at the same time. If combining reader technologies, they must be connected on separate ports.
