DSX Intelligent Controllers are independent processing panels designed to be cost effective building blocks that allow expansion in a scalable manner. Each controller has a different combination of inputs, outputs and reader ports. Up to four 1040 series controllers of any type can be combined in the same enclosure to form a package.
Each Controller operates as a fully intelligent and independent control panel that retains all data necessary for system operation in it’s own RAM. With it’s integral real-time Clock and Calendar it performs Time Zone control with Holiday overrides for inputs, outputs, and cards even when communication to the PC or other controllers is not available.
These Commercial and Industrial rated controllers are strategically placed throughout the customer’s location connected together with a two twisted pair cable. The first or master controller can be connected via LAN, USB, or DialUp Modem and subsequent controllers are then connected using a two twisted pair cable. PC Master software can be used to allow IP Communications with each controller or cluster of controllers over the LAN instead of just the first controller. This keeps wiring from the door to the panel short and keeps the panels in convenient and secure areas. There are several different controllers to choose from depending on the requirements of the job.
