General Hardware Information
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
The DSX-1042 Intelligent Controller
independant reader ports, 8 inputs, 2 relay outputs, 2 open
collector outputs, and 2 prewarn outputs.
The DSX-1048 Pkg
is an 8 door package using 4 -
1042 Intelligent Controllers in an 8 door enclosure and includes
a 1040 PDP integrated power supply.
The DSX-1042 Pkg
is a 1042 Intelligent Controller
in the 1040E 8 door enclosure with a 1040 PDP integrated power
supply. This is the
expansion package and could be used where there is a 2 door
immediate need with room to add 6 additional doors. The 1042 Pkg
can be purchased with additional 1042, 1043, and 1044
The DSX-1043 Output Controller
is a Controller
with 16 Form C relays, 2 inputs, and an Output Override Input.
The DSX-1044 Input Controller
is a Controller
with 32 inputs, 4
open collector outputs. Each Input supports 2,3, and 4 state
monitoring and has a Status LED.
The DSX-1022 Intelligent Controller
where only two readers are required. This small form factor can
be used in an elevator control room or parking garage gate controller.
It has the same functionality as the DSX-1042 but contains an
integral power supply. The DSX-1022 Intelligent Controller has 2
reader ports, 8 inputs, 4 relay outputs, 2 prewarn outputs,
built in power supply and battery charger. Transformer and
battery sold separate.
We have engineered one of the finest products in the industry.
Each of these controllers has been designed for a specific
purpose and tested to meet those needs. Choose the controller
that fits your needs. All DSX Controllers are designed and built
for commercial and industrial use and carry a UL 294 and 1076
module is an IP to RS-232 / RS-485
Communications translator. The module sits on the 10 or 100Mbit
network and converts IP communication from the Comm Server to
RS-232/RS-485 for controller communications. The unit is typically
powered by the controller it is connected to.
The DSX-USB MCI
module is an interface that
converts USB to RS-232 and RS-485. This module can be connected
to any Windows 7, 8, or 10 PC. The drivers for this module can
be found on any WinDSX software CD or flash drive.
