The discs can be rotated without having to disassemble the code module. To change the location of a disc pin, use a special code change tool that has the four disc locations marked by color lines around its handle: red, white, blue and yellow. First, insert a re-key master card into the lock to unlock it. Then insert the code change tool into one of the two holes in the front of the lock housing. This will show the existing disc pin location (its “color code”) as well as change its location. Once the tool is seated, the disc color code is identified by the position of a color line, then the tool can rotate the disc to a different color code. When the color code has been changed, that code module can no longer be operated by the Maxcard that had only the previous color code.
A fifth disc position is used to create construction code during system installation. Afterwards, that disc is changed to one of the four color codes and the construction cards are locked out.
In master-keyed systems, it is usual to dedicate one disc and its four codes to deny entrance to change cards and the other four position disc to deny entrance to lost masters. If a high master is lost or stolen, the entire system consisting of hundreds of locks can be completely re-keyed in the time it takes to walk from lock to lock and change each color code without even opening a door. Better yet is the fact that not a single change card has to be recoded. Only the single missing master is replaced. Valid duplicate masters are recoded to the new color code without replacement. Maxcess will provide all authorized dealers with complete information on how this type of re-keying is accomplished.
The Maxcards are coded using a Stampen™ fixture and a coded template. The Stampen fixture contains two Stampens, one to code card spits for repelling North magnets and one for repelling South magnets.
To code a Maxcard, insert the card into the Stampen fixture in the center. Then insert a code template and locate it onto the two registration pins. Slide the Maxcard to either the North or South side of the code template. Remove the corresponding pen from the rear and press against the Maxcard through each of the punched template holes. Then slide the Maxcard to the other position. Repeat the procedure, using the corresponding pen. Only the South Stampen should be used in the South side, etc. Each card “spot” created by the pen is magnetic and able to repel the corresponding magnetic pin. Viewing film supplied in the kit makes magnetic card spots visible.
Once coded, adaptor kits are available to mount the code modules onto various mortise, cylindrical, and rim locks, padlocks, electrical switches and cabinet locks. Three adaptor kits are supplied in the kit: a mortise cylinder, a knob for Schlage “A” cylindrical locks and a wall-mounted card-operated electric switch.
