The Protege Half DIN Rail 16 Input Expander provides an additional 16 inputs to the Protege system, an advanced technology security product providing seamless and powerful integration of access, security and building automation. 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.
Device power is supplied from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensure cost effective power distribution.
The compact two-tier half DIN Rail module design takes up less valuable real estate to provide more control in less space.
Single RS-485 communication interface port used for all network communication functions and interconnects to other modules.
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 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.
