Continental Access, a division of Napco Security Group and leader in access control, has been delivering state-of-the-art access control units for more than 40 years. Most recently, our engineers and designers have come together to create the highly advanced Super-Two I/O Expander. This device is designed to expand the capability of our new Super-Two Access Control panels. Each I/O (input/output) board allows for additional 16 supervised alarm inputs and 16 Form C Relay outputs. User may also add up to three additional I/O boards per Super-Two.
Our Super-Two I/O Combo version comes equipped with everything you need for plug-n-play operation including an auto-switching power supply, 7aH battery and charger. The battery charger provides open-collector outputs for AC Fail & 12V Fail notification as well as fast and trickle charge options. Our power supply provides automatic switching between 120V & 240V for use in both North America and Europe. Moreover, each I/O Expander board provides LED status feedback for 12V power, relay activation, input status and overall board health. Every board comes standard with an Accessory Power Out circuit, which provides battery-backed 12V DC power for accessory equipment such as sounding devices, REX sensors, door strikes, etcâ€¦
Continental's I/O Expander connects to our Super-Two via a three-foot RJ-12 communication cable (supplied) and allows for expansion. In order to reach the maximum number of relay outputs and alarm inputs, one is required to add an additional Expander board to the Combo enclosure. If you wish to add a second or third expander board, additional enclosures would need to be added to the system. However, each board is powered from the same power supply in the Combo enclosure and comes with the RJ-12 communication cable. This combination allows for control of an additional 48 (56 total) supervised alarm inputs and 48 (52 total) relay outputs per Super-two.
