The Protege DIN Rail Mini 2 Reader Expander with RS-485 Reader Ports provides the interface of up to 4 reader inputs and 2 locking device outputs to the Protege integrated access control, security and building automation system, an advanced technology security product providing seamless and powerful integration.
The Reader Expander provides 2 reader ports, each of which can be independently configured for either Wiegand or RS-485 reader operation. Choose RS-485 readers for fast, flexible, secure communication, or Wiegand for compatibility with all standard access control systems. 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.
The Reader Expander operates from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensure cost effective power distribution.
The Reader Expander allows a user to arm and disarm an area from a reader input when associated with a door:
Expanding the Protege system with local input and output from the Reader Expander allows convenient cost effective expansion and added benefit of dual functionality on door monitoring zones:
Single RS-485 communication interface port used for all network communication functions and interconnection to other modules.
Utilizing the latest flash technology and high performance communication mediums, the firmware can be updated using the ICT Loadit utility over the Protege system module network.

* The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the Reader 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.
** Each reader port supports either Wiegand or RS485 operation but not both at the same time. If combining Wiegand and RS-485 technologies, they must be connected on separate ports.
