The Protege Half DIN Rail 8 Port F/2F Reader Expander provides sites using legacy end-of-life Casi-Rusco hardware, and those operating F/2F card readers, with a seamless migration path to the ICT ProtegeGX Security Management System.

Key Features:

  • 8 reader ports using the F/2F protocol
  • No rewiring of existing readers required Simply unplug the existing Casi-Rusco Secure Perfect/Picture Perfect or GE/Micro5 reader connection and fit to the Protege F/2F Reader Expander
  • Monitor door position contacts and Request to Exit devices over standard F/2F protocol
  • Compact two-tier half DIN rail module design
  • Industry-standard DIN rail mounting

Cost Effective Upgrade Path

Many existing Casi-Rusco Secure Perfect, Picture Perfect and GE Micro-5 systems require replacement or upgrade as the platform reaches its end of life. Installations can be large (10,000+ doors) which makes replacing the entire system cost prohibitive. The Protege 8 Port F/2F Reader Expander is a cost effective solution giving integrators the ability to take over these sites without the need to replace/rewire existing readers.

  • Replacement product is mounted into existing security hardware enclosures
  • There is no need to re-wire the system as it uses the existing wiring to card readers and other devices
  • Allows continued use of existing cards, saving the time, cost and inconvenience of replacing cards

Streamlined Installation

Installation simply involves removing the circuit boards and card cage from the existing Casi-Rusco enclosure. DIN Rail mounting strip is then installed inside the enclosure, and the replacement Protege hardware modules connected. This provides a more robust solution than that offered by other providers which simply replace the circuit boards and continue to use the outdated and fragile card cage.

Scalable Futureproof Design

Beyond leveraging your existing investment, moving to ProtegeGX provides a scalable solution that expands with your business. The modular design and scalable licensing model makes ProtegeGX suitable for everyone – from small single door systems right through to large multi-national corporations. Modular expansion allows the system to grow with you and proves to be very cost effective as you only add Expander modules and optional functionality as you need.

Power Supply

Device power is supplied from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensure cost effective power distribution.


The RS-485 communication interface port is used for all communication with the Protege System Controller.
