Polyx NF+.png

The Polyx NF+ is a versatile network controller that is specifically designed to be used with Fore! security management software. The Polyx NF+ can either be powered using an external power supply or using Power over Ethernet, is equipped with an emergency battery circuit and has an onboard 12V lock power supply. Each Polyx NF+ can connect two Sirius card readers (Sirius f30, Sirius f80, Sirius f80P) or two Wiegand card readers using the optional Wiegand converter.

Mounting

  • Mount the Polyx NF+ using 35 mm mounting rail (NEN-EN 50022).

Power

There are two ways to supply power to a Polyx NF+:

  1. using an external 24V power supply;
  2. using Power over Ethernet (PoE);

External power supply

  • Connect a 24V external power supply to the power supply connector:

Connect common

When using an external power supply the common of the I/O section should be connected to the common of the power supply.

  • Connect the common of the power supply with one of the commons of the I/O section

Power over Ethernet

  • Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Lan/PoE+ port to a network switch with a PoE+ class 3 (max. 30mA) power output.

Emergency battery

The Polyx NF+ can be outfitted with an emergency battery to ensure the Polyx NF+ and the connected readers and door locks can keep working during a power outage.

Depending on the voltage requirements of your door locks there are two ways to connect your batteries:

  1. When you are using the 12V onboard lock power supply to power your locks you can use the battery circuit of the Polyx NF+;
  2. When you are using an external power supply to power your locks you can use the battery circuit of the external power supply;

12V Emergency power

  • Connect the emergency battery to the battery connector of the Polyx NF+:

24V Emergency power

  • Connect a 24V battery (or two 12V batteries) to the battery connector of your external power supply.

LAN

The Polyx NF+ is equipped with a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port (Gigabit Ethernet tolerant).

  • Connect an Ethernet cable to the Lan/PoE+ port of the Polyx.

Card readers

The Polyx NF+ can be used to connect one or two Sirius card readers or two Wiegand converters using port Reader 1 and port Reader 2. The readers are connected using a RJ45 connector and use a RS485 connection.

  • Connect a Sirius reader or Wiegand converter to port Reader 1.
  • Connect a Sirius reader or Wiegand converter to port Reader 2.

See the instruction manual of the Sirius reader or Wiegand converter for instructions on the pin layout of your reader.

I/O

The Polyx NF+ is outfitted with 12 common collector I/Os. Each I/O can switch a maximum of 1A/28VDC and is short-circuit proof. The I/Os are solid state relays (FET) which operate as “Normally open”.

The I/O are assigned to the two readers as follows:

Reader 1 1 Detection loop
2 Request to exit
3 Door contact
4 Arm intrusion
5 Door relay
6 Door open too long
Reader 2 7 Detection loop
8 Request to exit
9 Door contact
10 Arm intrusion
11 Door relay
12 Door open too long

Door relay and lock

Although it is technically possible to switch door locks directly using the I/O it is highly recommended to use an additional relay switch. Depending on the power requirements of your lock you can wire the lock in two ways:

  1. Using the onboard 12V lock power supply for 12V door locks with a combined power consumption lower than 600mA
  2. Using the external 24V power supply for 24V door locks

Depending on your requirements you can connect the lock to the Normally open or the Normally closed output of the relay.

Important: Unless your lock comes with a build-in flyback diode it is strongly advised to install a flyback diode (i.e. 1N4001) as close to the lock as possible.
Door relay for 12V door lock
  • Connect the door relay of Reader 1 to output 5 (Door relay). Use the onboard 12V lock power output to control the relay switch.
  • Connect the door relay of Reader 2 to output 11 (Door relay). Use the onboard 12V lock power output to control the relay switch.

  • Connect the + output of the onboard 12V lock power to the common of the relay switch;
  • Connect the + connector of the door lock to the Normally open or Normally closed output of the relay switch;
  • Connect the – connector of the door lock to the common of the onboard 12V lock power;

Door relay for 24V door lock
  • Connect the door relay of Reader 1 to output 5 (Door relay). Use the external 24V power supply to control the relay switch.
  • Connect the door relay of Reader 2 to output 11 (Door relay). Use the external 24V power supply to control the relay switch.

Polyx NF+ Relay24V.png

  • Connect the + output of the external power supply to the common of the relay switch;
  • Connect the + connector of the door lock to the Normally open or Normally closed output of the relay switch;
  • Connect the – connector of the door lock to the common;

Door contact

The door contact input can be used to send feedback to Fore! about the physical status of the door: open or closed. When a door contact is installed Fore! can monitor the status of the door and can raise an alarm when the door is open too long or when the door is opened without authorization.

The door contact input uses a Normally open configuration: when the door is closed the circuit should be open, when the door is opened the circuit should be closed. You can achieve this by using a Normally closed switch that is held open by the closed door.

  • Connect a door contact switch to input 3 (Door contact) and common for Reader 1.
  • Connect a door contact switch to input 9 (Door contact) and common for Reader 2.

Door open too long (DOTL) alarm

The Door Open Too Long (DOTL) alarm output is used to activate an alarm light or buzzer to indicate that a door has been open for too long. The DOTL alarm will only work in combination with a door contact.

In most cases you can use the onboard 12V lock power to power the alarm. If a higher voltage is required you can use the 24V external power supply or an additional relay switch and wire it similar to the door relay switch.

  • Use output 6 (Door open too long) to connect an alarm light or buzzer for Reader 1.
  • Use output 12 (Door open too long) to connect an alarm light or buzzer for Reader 2.

Arm intrusion switch

The arm intrusion switch can be used to temporarily switch the card reader into arm intrusion mode. When the switch is closed the card reader will be quickly flashing red / green indicating it is ready to arm the intrusion system by presenting an accesscard.

  • Connect a normally open push button between input 4 (Arm intrusion) and common for Reader 1.
  • Connect a normally open push button between input 10 (Arm intrusion) and common for Reader 2.

Request to exit button

The request to exit button can be used to open the door from the inside when the door is not equipped with a door handle.

  • Connect a (normally open) push button to input 2 (Request to exit) and common for Reader 1
  • Connect a (normally open) push button to input 8 (Request to exit) and common for Reader 2

Detection loop

When the detection loop input is used the reader will only accept accesscards when a car is standing on the detection loop.

  • Connect a (normally open) detection loop to input 1 (Request to exit) and common for Reader 1
  • Connect a (normally open) detection loop to input 7 (Request to exit) and common for Reader 2
