Arrow Starts A Revolution

This state-of-the-art touchscreen lock is as easy to use as dialing a telephone number.


The Arrow Revolution’s electronic access control Advanced Mode hierarchy is the Master Code, the Supervisor Codes and the User Codes. The length of the Master Code is six digits. The Master Code can register, change and delete the Supervisor Codes where applicable. The Master Code does not control the User Codes. Entering the Master Code into the lock will not provide access. The default Master Code is 123456. All Codes must be unique. No Codes can be duplicates of the Master, Supervisors or Users.

Supervisor and User Codes can each be from four to 12 digits. These codes can be different lengths. The Supervisor and User Codes can be used to gain access. A Supervisor Code can register, change and delete the User Codes. The default Supervisor code for the Easy Mode is 1234567890. There is no default Supervisor Code for the Advanced Mode.

When the Arrow Revolution lock is operated in the Advanced Mode, up to 1,000 user codes are possible. User Codes are controlled by the Supervisor of the 20 Supervisor groups. There is a Supervisor and 49 Users Codes per group. All programming is performed using the touch screen. For programming assistance, there are voice guided prompts.

The Master Code sets All Code Lockout Mode, Relock Time, Wrong Code Entry Limit, Shut Down Time and Language Setting Mode. The All Code Lockout Mode electronically locks out the Supervisor and User Codes from operating the locking mechanism. The relock time is the amount of time from once the latch can be retracted until the latch can no longer be retracted. The Shut Down Time is the amount of time that the lock shuts down when the chosen number of wrong codes has been entered.

The mechanical functionality of the Arrow Revolution is based on a Grade 2 cylindrical lever lock with through bolting. The Revolution has OverDrive™ that allows the exterior lever to rotate approximately 57 degrees without retracting the latch when in the locked condition. Stops built into the exterior rose insert prevent further rotation. The lock is unhanded and can be rotated to either handing.

The lock is standard with a 2-3/4” backset. The lock is available with a 2-3/8” backset. The Revolution is designed to accommodate door thickness of 1-3/8” to 1-3/4”. The touch screen with key override is field adjustable. However, the lock cylinder tailpiece for a 1-3/8” thick door is ¼” shorter than the lock cylinder tailpiece for a 1-3/4” thick door.

The Revolution comes standard with Satin Chrome 26D finish.

The key override version of the Revolution is available with Arrow conventional cylinder in the AR and CS keyways, and with Small Format Interchangeable Core prep.

Arrow is now supplying the Revolution with a plug-in adapter/wiring harness for external power and a remote activation switch. The eight-inch long adapter will connect to the circuit board at the back of the inside escutcheon adjacent to the motor connector. It has a connector for each of external power (9 VDC) and for external opening switch (dry contact switch normally open with momentary close). The other end of the harness is mated to an Electro Lynx cable 8 pin Molex connector. For more information, contact the factory.

Battery life is approximately 20,000 operations. Arrow recommends the batteries be changed every six months to one year depending on the amount of openings. Use only alkaline batteries.

To clean the touch screen, use a damp cloth or commercially available computer display wipes.
