Wall reader (bus) DoorLock-WA6 – MANUAL



Kentix IP wall readers enable contactless control of doors with a MIFARE® DESFire® RFID chip. All electronics are located on a compact unit. Due to its compact design, the reader is particularly suitable for use with narrow metal profiles. The setup always consists of the actual wall reader and the connected Kentix AccessManager. The wall reader is connected to the AccessManager via a 4-wire connection. The AccessManager itself connects directly to a Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable network switch. To control electric strikes/motor locks, the SmartRelay offers two relay outputs and, depending on the power class of the strikes, an integrated PoE splitter with 24VDC output.

A Kentix AccessManager for Cable Reader (KXP-2-RS) is required to operate the frame reader. Information about the relay and circuit diagrams including examples can be found here: AccessManager (Bus)
