Pairing R3c with Face ID X

Monday, December 23, 2019 TimeTec 0 Comments

Master-slave is a model communication or process to controls one or more other devices that serve as their communication hub. One device will act as the Master control and other devices will automatically label as the slave terminal(s). In this case, we will be using the new Face ID X pairs with the R3c device as an example.

-         Master device ( Face ID X )
-         Slave device ( R3c )
-         12V Power Supply
-         RS485 Power and communication cable
