DORMA Accessories for Terminals and Access Control Boxes

Additional components for time & access

DORMA access control and time recording terminals not only control and monitor card readers, but also additional components that are required to realise more complex applications. The DORMA software allows system configurations at any time.

S6 Door Module

In addition to standard card readers, there are door modules. These modules control the signal evaluation and the opening cycles of the the individual doors via a relay from the security area. Door modules are ready for installation in the System 55 switch range and therefore perfectly harmonise with the building's existing architecture. They are also suitable for concealed mounting.

S6 I/O adapter

As an alternative, door modules can be used as I/O adapters in a housing for surface mounting and are ready for installation in the suspended ceiling or hollow floor as required. As the relay is located within close range of the door or the power supply, only short cables are required.

I/O-9/8 module

The I/O-9/8 module is used to control elevators or turnstiles in complex access control environments.
Digital inputs send the current I/O status to the host access control terminal (B6L, M6L). The terminal activates the relays after the data has been evaluated. An I/O 9/8 Module is also suitable to pool/group the signals of several doors so that no separate door modules are required.

S6 keypad

S6 keypads are used for numerical entries such as PIN codes.

XS Traffic Point

The XS Traffic Point links wireless online components (XS Cylinder, XS Fitting and XS Reader) with DORMA B6/M6 Terminals.
Components that are linked via the XS Traffic Point operate like wired components. An XS Traffic Point can communicate simultaneously with up to 8 XS components. The XS Traffic Point monitors XS components and allows "live" checks. It furthermore provides coded and authenticated communication in the 868 MHz ISM band.

Reader Interface (RI)

The Reader Interface (RI) is an example of the connection of DORMA's open-system strategy. The Reader Interface allows the connection of card readers from other suppliers, such as far range readers, to DORMA Terminals.

Terminal Multiplexer (MUXD)

DORMA's Terminal Multiplexer extends the bus system to a star layout. The MUXD allows operation of up to 30 time recording and access control devices over a distance of several kilometres per stub.
This extends the DP1 bus by factor eight and considerably reduces the installation effort. In addition, you can often use existing cable routes. The point-to-point wiring in star layout makes the system fail-safe.


The LANRTC establishes an Ethernet (LAN) connection for two-wire terminals with RS485 interface end ensures proper communication between the terminals. LANRTC supports the full TCP/IP protocol range. In order to optimise the migration of existing systems, you can combine terminals with TP3 and TP4 protocol as they operate as standalone systems.

Inclined housing

The inclined housing is suitable for devices with a low installation height, such as those for use by people with disabilities. The inclined housing can also improve the readability of the display in case of bad lighting conditions, and provides sufficient space to stow the connection cables.
As an option, the inclined M6 terminal housing is available with an integrated 230 V power supply unit or PoE (Power over Ethernet).
