Kaba® Now Shipping New 'Green' Electronic Lock

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaba Access Control's new generation of self-powered electronic access control — the E-Plex® 2000 Series with PowerStar™ technology — is now available for shipment.

The patented PowerStar™ technology charges the lock with each turn of the lever, thereby eliminating the need to ever buy or replace any batteries. Additionally, there is no wiring to, or through the door.

To operate the E-Plex® 2000 with PowerStar™, you simply turn the lever to power-up the electronics, and then enter your valid access code. Turn the lever again to gain access.

Because there are no batteries to replace that would eventually end up in landfills, the E-Plex® 2000 Series with PowerStar™ technology is a "greener" choice than other electronic options.  In addition, the lock is fully RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant meaning that it is free of toxic metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, etc. Also, since there is no external wiring, installation is easy and reliable over time.

The E-Plex® 2000 with PowerStar™ is available in Cylindrical, Mortise and Exit trim(s). Up to 100 user codes can be enrolled into the lock at any given time. Other programmable features include, passage, lockout, tamper shutdown, and service codes.
