Wall reader (radio) DoorLock-WA1 – MANUAL

Skill Level 2


The radio wall reader expands the application range of Kentix Smart Access to include other fields of application such as factory gates, doors with motor control or barriers. It fully integrates with the Smart Access series with radio knob and radio lever handle. Integration, configuration and operation are analogous to the components listed above. Here, too, online or offline operation is possible. The wall reader already has its own relay, in online mode this can control one of 2 relays in the respective AccessPoint.

The voltage supply and relay switching is done directly at the wall reader. Please refer to the following circuit diagram for the PIN assignment.

Connection terminal rear side
1Power supply 8-30 VDC (polarity arbitrary)
2Power supply 8-30 VDC (polarity arbitrary)
9Switching relay output (normally open contact) max. 30 V AC/DC, max. 1.5A (any polarity)
10Switching relay output (normally open contact) max. 30 V AC/DC, max. 1.5A (any polarity)

Control of the door opener

There are two variants for controlling the door opener or motor lock with the following differences and limitations.

Control of the door opener directly via the relay output of the wall reader

  • Connection is made directly to the wall reader and is therefore easier to manipulate. Suitable for indoor areas or climb-over gates without high safety requirements.
  • The relay contact (9,10) on the wall reader is a normally open contact.
  • The KIO3 module shown in the circuit diagram is optional and is only required to query the door contacts. If these are not required, the module is omitted.
  • RESTRICTION: No remote opening via smartphone app or software possible, as the radio wall reader only establishes a radio connection to the AccessManager based on a read event of the RFID card.

Control of the door via an AccessManager with a KIO3 IO module connected to the system socket.

  • The door opener is connected to the KIO3 module indoors, where safe control is possible.
  • The relay contact on the KIO3 IO module is a changeover contact, wired as a make contact in the example.
  • RESTRICTION: Only 2 relay outputs possible via IO module (KIO3) per AccessManager. Relay, however, can be remotely controlled or opened via time programs at any time.

Installation of the wall reader

To install a Kentix radio converter reader, please proceed as follows

Installation in the flush-mounted box

Guide the wall reader to the flush-mounted box. Make sure that no cable is pinched or crushed.

Fix wall reader

Then align the wall reader in the flush-mounted box and screw it tight.

Fasten cover

Attach the cover to the wall reader. Note that this must be additionally screwed depending on the design.
