When used with the FDW1000 series of fiber optic Wiegand extender modules, the ComNet EXP100 Expansion Module enables additional Wiegand, Magstripe, or F/2F-based control panels, readers, and associated door/gate hardware to be added to the network. The 2-wire RS-485 data interface between the expansion modules provides a secure and completely supervised connection, with excellent immunity to electrical noise and interference. Up to 8 EXP100s can be used in a drop-and-repeat/daisy-chain topology, and each EXP100 may be set to a unique address (1 thru 15) via DIP-switch selection. An auxiliary I/O (input/output) interface is available for ascertaining door, gate, and control panel status and signaling, and a relay interface provides the door strike or gate activation functions. These units are designed for long-term, reliable operation in harsh industrial environments, and a fault-specific LED indicator is provided for rapidly ascertaining the operating status of the expansion module and the link. Packaged in a rugged aluminum housing, the EXP100 is designed for shelf or surface mounting. The EXP100 is supplied as a matched set; a remote unit for door or gate locations, and a central unit for control panel installation.
