Alarm Lock's new Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock is a standalone, single-door access control system incorporating only ProxCard® electronic access. The Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock is based on a Grade 1 cylindrical leverset that is UL Listed to the 10C Positive Pressure Specification. The latch bolt is UL Listed and three-hour fire rated. ADA-compliant lever handles are available. A six-pin tumbler cylinder with the SC1 keyway is furnished with the keyed outside models.
This Alarm Lock Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock does not have a keypad, eliminating the surface-mounted electronics. The concealed electronics provide increased vandal resistance as well as a weatherproof lock, capable of being installed in outdoor applications. Additional features are non-volatile memory, real-time clock, a programmable relay for operating an auxiliary electronic lock and up to 2,000 ProxCard IDs. The PL3000 is capable of reading most HID proximity cards and key fobs using 26-48 bit formats. For our purposes, proximity cards and key fobs both function identically and will be identified as ProxCards.
The PL3000 Prox Lock can be programmed using the nine provided Function Cards or with Alarm Lock Windows-based software. Partial programming is performed directly at the lock with Function Cards. To activate Function Card programming, these cards must be enrolled when the PL3000 is first powered. Function Card programming enables entry and removal of ProxCards; toggling into and out of Passage Mode; toggling into and out of Total User Lockout Mode; printing audit trail; and enabling and resetting the "One-Time-Only" ProxCard. Up to 1,700 user ProxCards can be added. In addition, a "One-Time-Only" Service Card becomes disabled after use. Function Card programming requires the proximity card in order to remove it from the Prox Lock's memory.
The Function Card programming does not require a computer. However, programming of groups, scheduled events, or functions involving the real-time clock and calendar must be done via computer. While Function Card programmed users do not have time constraints, an audit trail provides a log of all electronic activity. The audit log can be retrieved from the PL3000 directly from the lock to a hand-held infrared printer (AL-IR1).
Full programming requires Alarm Lock DL-Windows™ version 3.04B software and a personal computer. Using this software, each PL3000 Prox Lock can have up to 2,000 users operating within up to 500 scheduled events that use the real-time clock and calendar features. Up to 1,999 users can be assigned to the four groups. In addition, there is a "One-Time-Only" Service Card that becomes disabled after use. Programming can be transferred to the PL3000 using the Personal Computer interface or the handheld Data Transfer Module (AL-DTM II). Data can be retrieved from the PL3000 directly from the lock to a Personal Computer, the Data Transfer Module, or the hand-held infrared printer.
For the purpose of this article, we will install a Trilogy PL3000 Prox Lock and program the unit using the nine Function Cards. The PL3000 Prox Lock requires a 2-1/8" diameter cross bore opening and the default backset is 2-3/4". Dead latches are available to accommodate a 2-3/8" backset. Additional cross bore openings are required including two 3/8" diameter thru holes, a 1" diameter cross bore hole for the wiring, and two 3/8" diameter cross bore holes for securing the inside and outside assemblies.
For this installation, we will be installing the lock using existing door prep onto a 1-3/4" thick wood mount. The lock will be installed as a standalone unit without external power or remote release.
Step 1. Remove the inside lever from the lock and slide off the inside trim assembly.
Step 2. Install the dead latch using two provided Phillips head screws.
