ASSA ABLOY introduced 46 new products at ISC West 2012, March 28-30 in Las Vegas, focusing on Aperio wireless technology products that connects multiple door or cabinet openings to an existing electronic access control system.
Aperio is a global, wireless platform that provides an easy, affordable way to connect additional openings to an existing electronic access control system. It uses short-distance wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to link to an electronic access control system. This simplifies installation, reducing costs and complexity compared to traditional access control.
Designed for effective operation and quick, easy wireless deployment, the Aperio system requires minimal field configuration. With real-time authentication and alarms, Aperio uses AES 128-bit wireless encryption and supports HID® 125 kHz prox or 13.56 MHz iCLASS® credentials with full authentication in all formats.
With over 75 access control partners that have already adopted the technology globally, Aperio offers easy integration with most manufacturers’ electronic access control systems.
“This year at ISC West we’re pushing the Aperio wireless lock system because it offers a substantial cost savings for people looking to expand their existing access control,” said Martin Huddart, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Architectural Hardware Group, ASSA ABLOY.
Aperio has been deployed and successful in healthcare, government and business facilities, and is also applicable for K-12 classrooms, retail aluminum storefronts, food companies to meet FDA safety standards, server farm technology cages and to protect historical buildings without having to retrofit and compromise the establishment.
With the flexibility to address almost any application, Aperio wireless technology is available in the SARGENT IN100 and PR100 commercial and institutional locks, Adams Rite A100 narrow stile locks, Medeco M100 eCylinders, and HES K100 cabinet locks.
HES iCLASS and Prox-Integrated Products
HES iCLASS and Prox-Integrated Products are now available with any HES electric strike, all in a convenient, one-box package. These pre-integrated solutions combine the sophisticated technology of HID® iCLASS or Proximity access control with the physical security of HES electric strikes, providing a consistent installation experience—door after door.
Initially introduced with a limited assortment of HES electric strikes, these integrated solutions are now available with any product in the HES product line, including low profile, concealed, and surface mounted electric strikes, as well as the HES 660 cabinet lock.
“The expansion of the product line comes in response to market demand for additional options,” states Scott Baker, President of ASSA ABLOY EMS&OEM Group. “Protection of the reader electronics in the frame and the modularity of the devices make this an attractive solution for environments with high tamper risk or anywhere ease of maintenance is required.”
Each HES Integrated Product features an HES-designed, low profile mullion reader built on HID® 125 MHz proximity or HID® 13.56MHz iCLASS technology, plus a door-position switch, and any HES electric strike with latchbolt monitor. Each solution includes easy-to-use wiring harnesses for fast installation and provides standard Wiegand output for compatibility with
The unique HES design provides added protection for sensitive access control components by concealing them securely in the frame, increasing security, tamper resistance and durability. Only the modular reader antenna is exposed.
AccuPower™ Switching Power Supplies
The AccuPower product line includes single-voltage, dual-voltage and multi-voltage DC power supplies with battery chargers in a variety of amperage levels that scale to accommodate simple single door deployments to complex, multi-door installs.
