HBUS Modules and I/O Devices

Hbus Modules Devices

Flexible, fast, cost-effective and secure, Gallagher HBUS I/O Devices provide input and output expansion options, extending the connectivity of the Gallagher Controller 6000 and supporting shared cabling with other HBUS devices.

Additional Information

Features and benefits

  • High speed communication – the HBUS communication protocol is based on the RS485 standard, delivering high speed communication between each HBUS I/O Device and the Gallagher Controller 6000 at a rate of 1Mb/s over a distance of up to 500m (1,640 ft.).
  • Automated device software upgrades HBUS I/O Device software is automatically available with Controller 6000 software upgrades, meaning no operator intervention is required.
  • Tamper protection IT-grade authentication and encryption prevents data tampering and further enhances the security of your system.
  • Unique identities for all field devicesensures compromised devices cannot be added to the system.
  • Variable end-of-line resistanceallows Gallagher HBUS devices to be easily installed using a site’s existing security wiring.

HBUS Modules

Gallagher 8H and 4H modules support star wiring of secure high-speed HBUS devices including T Series Readers and the F22 Fence Controller to a secure Gallagher Cabinet. Star wiring HBUS devices to a controller cabinet removes the risk of one faulty connection taking down multiple devices, and enables easier fault isolation. I/O connectivity is also provided for door and equipment monitoring.

Gallagher HBUS Modules include:

  • 8H Module provides 8 HBUS ports, 24 balanced inputs and 8 relay outputs
  • 4H Module provides 4 HBUS ports, 12 balanced inputs and 4 relay outputs.

HBUS I/O Devices

Gallagher HBUS I/O Devices provide flexible, cost effective and secure input and output expansion options, and shared cabling with other HBUS devices.

The Gallagher 8 In 2 Out Door Module:

  • connects reader or terminal devices up to 400m (1312ft.) away allowing HBUS communications to be branched or 'T' Wired from HBUS cabling connected to the Controller 6000
  • provides isolation between its upstream and downstream HBUS runs protecting other HBUS Devices connected to the same controller HBUS port
  • provides connections for Gallagher's T Series Reader range.

The Gallagher HBUS I/O Board includes:

  • 16 In 16 Out Board
  • 8 In 4 Out Board
  • 8 In Board.

Monitoring inputs may be used for monitoring:

  • access controlled doors
  • passive Infrared detectors (PIRs)
  • uncontrolled doors
  • equipment alarms
  • any other devices that provide a clean contact.

Activating outputs - relays may be used as:

  • door control
  • alarm outputs for example activating sirens
  • logic activated outputs for example switching air conditioning on and off
  • time activated outputs for example switching lighting on and off.
