The Cisco® Physical Access Reader Module (Figure 1) is an optional component of the Cisco Physical Access Control solution. The module can be connected to a Cisco Physical Access Gateway in order to expand the solution to include additional doors.

The Cisco Physical Access Reader Module can connect to a maximum of two doors and associated inputs and outputs. It must be used in conjunction with the Cisco Physical Access Gateway, and cannot be used standalone.

Description

Weigand Reader

There is one 10-pin Weigand/clock and data reader interface on the device. This can be configured as two 5-pin Weigand/clock and data interfaces for installations where a 5-pin interface is sufficient.

Inputs

There are three inputs, each of which can be configured as supervised or unsupervised.

Outputs

There are three Form C relay outputs, with contacts rated 5A @ 30V DC or 125VAC (resistive). Each can be configured as either Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO).

Tamper Input

Unsupervised input; raises a "tamper" alarm when activated. Can be repurposed for general use by software configuration.

Power Fail Input

Unsupervised input; raises a "power fail" alarm when activated. Can be repurposed for general use by software configuration.

Power

Includes a 2-pin connector for connecting a 12 to 24 VDC external power source.

RS-485

The RS-485 interface is reserved for future use.

CAN Bus

A 3-wire connection is used to connect to the controller area network (CAN) bus.

CAN Termination

A switch allows for the CAN bus to be terminated. This is needed for the last module on the CAN bus.
