Network Controllers


The multi-function RADC (Remote Area Data Collector) acts as a network controller for the StarWatch suite of security products, offering a versatile communications interface for door controllers, alarm panels and access/secure keypads. As an intelligent field device, the unit interfaces with exterior components and intrusion detection sensors over an ArcNET LAN and through on-board I/O connections.

  • Eight on-board inputs and eight outputs, expandable to up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs via RIOX modules
  • Incorporates full anti-passback functions
  • Four RS232 / RS485 communication ports provide interface to intelligent sensors and additional StarWatch units

The RADC efficiently collects and processes data received from multiple connected devices and reports relevant information to the system PMC data center. The RADC can be fully integrated with the StarWatch front end operating system or used as a stand alone area controller, making intelligent control and monitoring decisions based on the local flow of data and user-definable configuration settings.

The RIOX (RADC Input/Output Expansion) modules are used to increase the point count of RADC network controllers, enabling the integration of additional exterior StarWatch components and sensors. Through direct, on-board connections, up to six RIOX units can be added to a single RADC.

  • Four tamper-protected inputs
  • Four Form C relay outputs, configurable as normally open or normally closed
  • Capable of expanding the I/O capacity of RADC network controllers to a maximum of 32 inputs and 32 outputs

All inputs are tamper protected and can detect normal, alarm, tamper open and tamper short conditions on the monitored line.
