Protege GX Training Kit
and Metal Base Enclosure


The Protege GX training kit enables you to run through the facilitated training course with minimal physical hardware. The console keeps unsightly wires tucked into the base while the switches provide an easy way to control reader port configuration and the closing / opening of inputs.

  • Simple and intuitive to use
  • Front panel LEDs are easily viewable as the modules are mounted on the front of the console
  • Close and open inputs by flicking the zone switches up and down
  • Hidden wiring provides an uncluttered and organized display during the training demonstration
  • Power and Ethernet ports located on the left side of the base for simple connection.
  • Onboard RS-485 expansion port compatible with all Protege expander modules and accessories
  • Modules and switches are clearly labeled for easy identification
  • Easily switch between Protege GX and Protege WX by simply swapping out the controller
  • Switch between Reader Port 1 and 2 by flicking a switch


  • 1x Protege GX Controller (PRT-CTRL-DIN)
  • 1x Protege DIN Rail 4A Intelligent Power Supply (PRT-PSU-DIN-4A)
  • 1x Protege Touch Sense LCD Keypad - Black (PRT-KLCS-B)
  • 1x tSec Mini DESfire Card Reader - Black (PRX-TSEC-MINI-DF-B)
  • 1x tSec Standard DESfire Card Reader with Keypad and NFC/Bluetooth® - Black (PRX-TSEC-STD-DF-KP-BT-B)
  • 5x Mifare DESFire EV1 Proximity Cards (PRX-ISO-DF)
  • 5x Mifare 1K (S50) Proximity Cards ISO (PRX-ISO-MF)

The desktop mounting unit is designed as a stylish and stable training console. The upright design allows for easy access to the tSec readers and keypad, while the cables and wiring are hidden and out of the way.

The Protege GX DIN Rail Controller is the central processing unit responsible for the control of security, access control and automation in the Protege GX system, an advanced technology security product providing seamless and powerful integration of access, security and building automation. 

The Protege DIN Rail 4A Intelligent Power Supply provides 12VDC power ideal for running security, access control or automation devices along with large numbers of Protege network powered modules in the same installation.

The Protege Touch Sense LCD Keypad provides a sleek, user friendly human interface to the Protege Integrated System, an advanced technology security product providing seamless and powerful integration of access, security and building automation.

The tSec Card Reader range provides a complete multi-technology smart card RFID solution. Compatible with all Wiegand data capable control systems and incorporating RS-485 communication, tSec Readers allow rapid deployment of secure technology in any environment.
