The demands in the field of electronic security are trending towards high availability and a combination of
multiple systems in one integrated solution. TITAN electronic is offering TITAN quantum – a product that fulfils these requirements. TITAN quantum
is a high-speed and high availability system for data transmission and power distribution to security sensors and actors in a field installation.
It allows to combine the subsystems access control, intrusion detection and PLC into one system. This solution consists of RIOs (remote input remote output) which are connected in a ring-bus-system.
Each RIO has an integrated real-time multi-master ring-bus protocol to ensure interaction with each other. The protocol permits real-time measuring of analogue sensor values synchronized to a system
clock in the range of 1 microsecond. In case of power supply failure or data line failure, the system automatically isolates the failure and switches to bus
mode to guarantee further functioning. In that way, a single point of failure does not result in a system fault.
Additionally, the solution provides cryptographic functions like encryption, integrity check and authorization.
Therefore each RIO has an AES key store and a random generator for use in a 3-pass-mutual-authentication to external host systems. The overall system functions can be easily used via the
data interface on each RIO and can be monitored via the RIO-Tool software.

Real-time measuring with synchronized system time
The remote input output module is the main name of an SBI-Ring device. Each RIO consists of an electronic board with the following interfaces:
All that interfaces and their functionality gives the RIO the chance to be used for an access control door interface (card reader, door contact and electrical strike) and also for an intrusion detection
system. In the intrusion detection usage the inputs can be used for connecting the sensors and the 3 relay outputs can be used for sirens, lamps and locking strikes in doors. The RIO is coming in mounting
box for on wall and flush mounting installations. The board provides the installer with easy to use connectors for fast and long-time installations.
RIO Module Failures
The SBI-Ring cable includes both the data and the power line. In a failure situation there can be one or both lines defect. The power line is a bidirectional line. From each side of the ring
the power can be supplied. In case of short circuit, each RIO disconnects the short circuit via its build-in insolation circuit. In case there is no power from both sides the RIO can also be equipped with a backup battery.
In that case the system will run also on a 2-point-power failure. Additional to the power line the data line can also have failures. In that case the system will automatically isolate that failure from the two neighbour RIO´s.
The RIO electronic has two isolation circuits for each of his neighbours. One insulator is for the power and one for the data line. In the normal situation the insulator is deactivated.
Application and Solutions
The left figure shows a common solution of multi different subsystems using the SBI ring-bus system. The big advantage of the solution is the single field cabling for all three
subsystems. This can be done by the high availability capability of the SBI bus system. Additional the high speed data rate gives the sub-systems enough bandwidth to fulfill their tasks without interfering
each other. The multi-master real-time protocol with multicast messages allows the different bus participants to get all status information on time.
Redundant Multi-Subsystem Solution
The solution shows two redundant central units both are running the access and intrusion detection software. The third central is used for computing programmable
logic (PLC). All three centrals are connected to one database server or visualization system. This solution is high available against central failure. In case of failure of one access or
intrusion detection central the other one immediately switches over, because of their common cluster database.
Independent Multi-Subsystem Solution
Similar to the last solution is the independent multi-subsystem solution. This variant uses two differnet central server. One for the security the other one could be managed by
the facility system. Both use the SBI ring-bus system independently from each other.
Full Redundant Solution
The left figure shows a full redundant solution on all levels. The two central units for access control and intrusion detection are redundant to each other while the two security server are redundant
on the application and database level. The solution gives the highest possible availability and are mainly used in security systems with highest demands.
The TITAN quantum security system comes with different engineering, configuration, monitoring and test tools. The RIO-Tool is the most important one to fulfill the following tasks:
Show the Ring Topology
Show Status Informations per RIO
Test Input and Outputs
Test Card Reader
Monitor RIO Temperature
Monitor the Ring Bus
Monitor the Bus Activity
Monitor the Input/Output Activity
Load the Ring Bus Database
Monitor Supply Voltage
The left screen shot shows the dashboard with the activity state for the selected RIO. In the first column the input states are shown. Each input is shown with on lamp. Inputs
can be programmed in three modes. Mode 0 is the two-resistors-monitored mode while mode 1 is a normal logic input. The output column shows the current output state and can also be tested directly in the
RIO-Tool. The reader column shows all configured reader with their states. In the column Others the RIO specific states are shown. The last column shows the RIO topology and the online status or each RIO.
