ASSA ABLOY Ecoflex
ASSA ABLOY Ecoflex technology, which offers 97 percent reduction in energy usage compared to standard electrified locks, is being offered on ASSA ABLOY’s CORBIN RUSSWIN and SARGENT products. The technology allows electronic access control applications whether it’s used as a basic electrified lock in conjunction with a wall reader, in an integrated hardwired lock or in an integrated battery powered lock. Because it provides dramatically reduced energy consumption, drawing less than 1/4 watt at 12V, Ecoflex offers more flexibility to consolidate power supplies and reduce operating costs. In particular, Ecoflex can offer significant savings in fail-safe applications such as stairwell towers, where locks on every floor draw constant power.
Ecoflex offers a solution with a single ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 mortise lock that can serve a variety of uses. One lock body can be used for 12V - 24V applications and can be easily field-configured for fail-safe or fail-secure operation. www.assaabloy.com/en/com.
The Adams Rite A100-3090H keyless entry control system pairs an Adams Rite locking device and the ASSA ABLOY Aperio® wireless hub, adding electronic access control to a narrow stile aluminum door without adding another credential or access control system. The A100-3090H kit can also be used with the Securitron DKC digital keypad controller, which provides stand-alone control of up to two electrically locked doors. Suitable for existing Adams Rite deadbolts, deadlatches and exit devices that are compatible with aluminum stile applications, the A100-3090H also works with SARGENT®, Yale® and Corbin Russwin® exit devices. The Aperio hub is a local hub that connects to a facility’s access control system. It is the interface between the A100 lock and the rest of the system. Available in reader-only, the A100-3090H can either left- or right hand entry, and features a vandal-resistant lever with a break-away (resettable) clutch. Additional features include a mortise cylinder override and door position, REX and tamper alarm functions. The A100-3090H supports HID® 125kHz proximity or 13.56MHz iCLASS® contactless credentials and integrates readily with existing credential systems. It also has a key override that allows secure manual unlock capability. The A100-3090H is available in two decorative finishes: satin chrome and dark bronze. www.adamsrite.com.
Secura Key Upgrades Panel with Ethernet and More
Secura Key’s SK-ACPE-LE 2-Door access control panel is a drop-in replacement upgrade for the SK-ACP. The SK-ACPE is almost functionally identical in a retrofit/replacement scenario, and it will work with older versions of SK-NET software. Connectors and their functions are identical to the SK-ACP. An older board can be easily replaced without rewiring the connectors. The new unit
offers an Ethernet interface that can be plugged into any hub or router using CAT 5e or CAT 6 cables with RJ45 connectors, eliminating the requirement for a separate plug-in Ethernet module. More status LEDs have been added to the board to provide better feedback during installation and service. On-board memory has been increased, allowing up to 10,000 stored transactions, and allowing up to 65,000 limited use cards. The panel now includes an enclosure tamper input, which can be connected to an optional enclosure tamper switch.
