Did you know you can install a reader anywhere along an existing network, or connect readers in challenging environments using dark fiber using Cypress Suprex® Reader-Extenders? Depending on the chosen Suprex model, you can connect wirelessly, over RS-485, Ethernet or Fiber Optic cabling, to save time, money, and reduce frustration.
Suprex models are recommended as alternatives to using a second control panel, and help you minimize costs by using existing wire or bypassing obstacles. Specific recommended uses include:
Wireless: Use when installing readers at sites across parking lots, railroad tracks, or in settings where it is undesirable to trench or where minimal disruption is preferred, such as buildings with historical significance or those which contain asbestos.
Fiber Optic: Use in desert, lightning-prone or corrosive environments, to take advantage of dark fiber on site, or when greater distance is desired.
RS-485: Use at sites where RS-485/2-wire is available, or in elevators and at sites where high immunity to electrical noise under adverse conditions is needed.
Ethernet: Plug Suprex Central & Remote units into routers / switches to install readers anywhere on an existing network, or connect directly with Ethernet crossover cable.
