The surface mounted CompX eLock Horizontal Mount Refrigerator Kit is designed to secure refrigerators and upright freezers to control access. This Refrigerator Kit is based on the eLock keyless cabinet lock technology using five methods of controlling access: Keypad, Magnetic Stripe, Proximity, Magnetic Stripe/Keypad combination and Proximity/Keypad combination. The Horizontal Mount Refrigerator Kit is designed for interior applications and is not weather resistant.
The CompX Horizontal Mount Refrigerator Kit electronics have non-volatile memory that remains intact even when the batteries are exhausted. The Refrigerator Kit has the capability of up to 250 Supervisor/User Codes and 1500 occurrences time/date audit trail to accommodate federal, state and local safety requirements. Note: LockView® software is required for some of the advanced capabilities.
Like the top-mount CompX Refrigerator Lock, the horizontal mount unit has a battery operated latch mechanism incorporating a gear driven motor that operates a spring bolt. Both of the Refrigerator Kits are designed to lock a refrigerator or freezer simply by closing the door. The Horizontal Mount Refrigerator Kit is mounted onto the swing horizontal of the door and the strike plate is mounted onto the body. As the door is closed, the strike enters the latch opening, causing the latch to retract in order to accommodate the strike plate.
Once the cutout in the strike aligns with the latch, it extends into the opening in the strike plate securing the door. Only a properly programmed proximity ID, magstripe card and/or PIN can gain access. When properly programmed code(s) has been entered, the electric motor retracts the latch permitting the door to be opened.
These refrigerator locks can be programmed using two different methods. Supervisor/User Codes can be added by using the keypad or presenting a card. The second method is to program the refrigerator lock using the optional LockView software. For this installation, proximity cards were programmed to accommodate the name badges of the employees who required access to the freezer. This was the primary method for access. The lock was ordered with both proximity and keypad, having keypad capability as a backup.
The keypad-equipped Refrigerator Locks have buttonS numbered 0 through 9, a green LED and red LED, an asterisk “*” key, and pound “#” key. When a valid Supervisor or User Code is entered, the green LED illuminates, the latch retracts, and a confirmation beep sounds. If an invalid code is entered, the red LED illuminates and a beep sounds.
LockView Windows™ based software connects via USB port and provides basic programming functions for non-keypad equipped Refrigerator Locks. In addition, all models of the Refrigerator Locks and the eLocks can be programmed for time and date as well as audit capabilities. The LockView software facilitates adding, editing, deleting, and assigning users and supervisors access rights. Using LockView, the audit log contains up to the last 1500 entry attempts with date, time, access granted or denied, and user name. The five lock models of the Refrigerator Locks have an RJ-11 port that can be accessed without opening the refrigerator door.
Prior to installing the Refrigerator Lock, it is a good idea to program the unit so at least one user code/card can unlock the refrigerator or freezer. This way operation of the lock can be confirmed prior to installation and simplify the installation process.
