Wall reader (bus) DoorLock-WA3-V2 – MANUAL



Kentix IP wall readers enable contactless control of doors with a MIFARE® DESFire® RFID chip. 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.

For the operation of the wall readers (version: V2), a Kentix AccessManager for cable readers (KXP-2-RS) with a KentixONE software version of 8.2.0 or higher is required. Information about the relay and circuit diagrams including examples can be found here: AccessManager (Bus)

Important! Wall readers of different versions cannot be operated on one AccessManager. The version identifier (e.g. V2) is coded in the article number.

Connection example

Two wall readers with door contacts and external door openers

Terminal block 2 on the AccessManager (bus) is used for communication (terminals 5 and 6) and for supplying power (terminals 3 and 4) to the wall readers.

Terminal block 1 on the AccessManager (bus) contains two digital inputs (potential-free) and two relay contacts (changeover contacts). The digital inputs (terminals 1 and 2, terminals 3 and 4) are used to monitor the status of the doors (door contact). The relay contacts (terminals 5 and 6, terminals 7 and 8) can be used to control door openers. A jumper can be used to switch between normally closed and normally open contacts.

Commissioning of two wall readers on one AccessManager
If two wall readers are to be operated with one AccessManager, proceed as follows for commissioning:
Connect the first wall reader to the AccessManager. Add it in the main device with “DoorLock (IP)”. Only when the first wall reader has been put into operation, they connect the second device and add it as well.

User and access management

The administration of users and access rights is done on the main device of the installation with KentixOne.

All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section.
