Amx ANT-RDR Install Manual

Amx ant-rdr rfid reader: install guide.

 
Overview
The Anterus™ RFID Solution provides a Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) solution from
AMX that extends the capabilities of the integrated A/V or control system. Anterus provides
the ability to monitor devices for asset control, as well as to define control system
functionality based on the presence of an RF Tag.
ANT-RDR Readers interface to the NetLinx Master via the AXLink bus. Anterus Tags actively
send RF messages communicating their information to ANT-RDR Readers at a distance. By
design, the Tags are active at all times. The ANT-RDR filters RF messages to ensure only
messages from RF Tags in the AMX system are forward to the control system.
Each ANT-RDR Reader detects Anterus RF Tags within its monitored zone of up to
100 feet (30 m).
Anterus products are designed to not interfere with WiFI and Zigbee frequency
spectrum used by other AMX products.
Note: The Anterus RFID Solution is intended for asset tracking and system control.
It is not to be used as a primary asset or personnel security system.
Anterus components include:
ANT-RDR Reader (FG5172): The ANT-RDR connects to the NetLinx controller to initi-
ate system events when an Anterus RF asset tag or ID badge enters its zone.
ANT-TAG Device/Asset Tag (FG5172-01): The ANT-TAG device/asset tag attaches to
devices to identify and track their location, and trigger system events.
ANT-BDG Badge Tag (FG5172-03): The ANT-BDG badge tag is worn by personnel to
identify them, track their location within a facility, and trigger system events while in
proximity to an Anterus reader.
Anterus Duet Module: The Anterus Duet Module interfaces ANT-RDR Readers with
NetLinx controllers.
ANT-RDR RFID Reader
The ANT-RDR (FG5172) connects to the NetLinx controller to initiate system events
whenever an ANT-TAG Device/Asset Tag, or ANT-BDG ID Badge Tag passes into its zone
(FIG. 1).

ANT-RDR RFID Reader and Anterus Tags
The ANT-RDR communicates with the NetLinx Master via AXLink, which supports up to 255
devices on a single AXLink bus spanning for a total distance of 3000' (915 m).
The ANT-RDR uses a 4-pin 3.5 mm mini-Phoenix (male) connector to provide data and
power to the ANT-RDR via the AXLink bus.

ANT-TAG Device/Asset Tag
The ANT-TAG Device/Asset Tag (FG5172-01) attaches to devices to identify and track
location, and trigger system events (see FIG. 1).
Attach the ANT-TAG to a stationary or mobile asset to monitor the location of the asset. A
tagged asset may be a non-controllable object not traditionally connected to a Master Control
System, or a mobile device that is regularly moved throughout a facility.
ANT-BDG ID Badge Tag
The ANT-BDG Badge Tag (FG5172-03) is worn by personnel to identify them, track their
location within a facility and trigger system events while in proximity to an ANT-RDR RFID
Reader (see FIG. 1).

Anterus Tags - Internal Battery
An internal lithium battery powers the Anterus RFID Tags. Each RFID Tag will, for the
duration of its life, transmit a Radio Frequency (RF) signal at a pre-set time interval. The Tag
life is estimated at 5 years at a transmission time interval of approximately 10 seconds. The
life span of the Tag ends when the battery life is exhausted. Battery status can be inferred by
interrogating the internal Tag Age Counter Value.
Anterus Tags - Mounting/Installation
ANT-TAG Tags can be mounted on a variety of non-metallic items. Where permanent
fixing is required, VHB double-sided tape is used.
ANT-BDG Tags can be mounted on a variety of items. Where permanent fixing is
required VHB double-sided tape is used; otherwise, the tags may be worn on a neck-
lace or clipped to clothing.
