The Protege WX DIN Rail Controller is the central processing unit responsible for the control of security, access control and automation in the Protege WX system, an advanced technology security product providing seamless and powerful integration of access, security and building automation managed from a browser interface.
RS-485 communication interface, onboard 2400bps modem, and a 10/100 Ethernet communications port provides a complete solution for system expansion, offsite monitoring, system communication and integration.
Provides 2 reader ports, each of which can be independently configured for either Wiegand or RS-485 reader operation, allowing the connection of up to 4 readers controlling 2 doors. 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.
Featuring advanced integration of arming and disarming solutions for control of up to 32 alarm areas:
Providing a highly sophisticated access control solution with large user capacity and extensive features:
Expansion of the Protege system with onboard local inputs and outputs allows convenient cost effective expansion without the increased cost of modules for simple system functions:
Protege WX launches in basic mode with full access control and intrusion detection ready to go. This hides the more complicated features making the system more intuitive and simple to use. Undertake an optional training course to become a 'WXpert' and unlock the advanced features including building automation, programmable functions, and elevator control.
Programmable functions allow for the use of special applications that are configured by the controller for logic, area, door and many other controllable devices:
Automation points allow for the management of any controllable device such as lighting, air conditioning and signage. Link automation points to programmable functions to provide sophisticated control logic at the selection of an automation point. Define your own text names for automation points such as Office A/C or Outside Lights allowing easy identification of controllable items within the system.
The controller incorporates a choice of offsite reporting options.
Firmware upgradable directly from the Protege WX interface.

*The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the Controller and any devices connected to the Controller's outputs. The Auxiliary outputs and Bell output 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.
