DSX-1048Up to 4 1042 Controllers can be installed in the same enclosure to form a DSX-1048Pkg. These Commercial and Industrial rated controllers are strategically placed throughout the customerís location connected together with a two twisted pair cable. 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. The DSX-1042 is a Two Door Controller. The DSX-1043 is a 16 Relay Output Controller and the DSX-1044 is a 32 Input Controller. Up to 4 Controllers can be installed in the same enclosure.

DSX-1022Each Controller operates as a fully intelligent and independent control panel that retains all data necessary for system operation in itís own RAM. With itís 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. The DSX-1022 Intelligent Controller is ideal where only two readers are required. This can be an elevator control room or parking garage gate controller. All of the functionality is the same for the controllers but the form factor is different to accommodate different applications.
