Kaba Ilco offers two versions of its mechanical pushbutton lock. The Kaba Ilco 9600 Series mechanical pushbutton lock has a single access code that operates a deadbolt/spring latch lock mechanism. The File Guard single access code lock fits standard two- to five-drawer file cabinets. Both locks can be programmed without removing the lock from the cabinet.
The surface-mounted Lockey USA C-170 Cabinet Pushbutton Cam Style Lock is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Electromechanical Cabinet Locks
Electromechanical cabinet locks can be divided into two basic categories: standalone, battery powered cabinet locks and component-based electromechanical lock mechanisms. Battery powered, 10-digit keypad Codelocks KL100 and KL1200 Cabinet Locks are designed to be installed into a standard cam lock opening. KL Series Cabinet Locks have four programming levels including a one-time User Code mode.
CompX offers a variety of standalone battery-operated electromechanical locks including the StealthLock, RegulatoR Lock, Network Cabinet eLock, cabinet eLock, Refrigerator eLock and the Network Temperature Monitoring eLock. The CompX StealthLock is a wireless transmitter pad and battery powered receiver latch. If the transmitter pad is within 15 feet of the receiver latch, the lock mechanism can be unlocked by entering the appropriate code.
Two component-based cabinet locks are available from HES: the HES 660 Series Wired Cabinet Lock and the K100-621Wireless Cabinet Lock. The 660 Series surface-mounted cabinet lock mechanism is wired into an access control system. The 12 or 24VDC 660 Series Cabinet Locks are available with or without the pre-load option that draws from .12 Amps @ 24VDC to .70 Amps @ 12VDC.
The wireless Medeco K100 Aperio Electronic Cabinet Lock eliminates the use of keys and allows entry only to individuals who have authorized HID iClass or Prox card technologies as determined by the access control system. The 250 pound holding force K100 has local wireless communication with the Aperio hub. Once access is permitted, turning the thumbturn retracts the spring latch.
