EKS (Electronic Keyswitch)

The EKS can replace conventional keyswitches and keys by having electronic keys (transponders) that are used for non-contact activation.

The EKS detects the transponder from a few centimeters distance. Every transponder is a unique specimen with a non-recurring and unchangeable identifier which can only be read by an electronic device. The EKS can memorize up to 156 transponder identities. It is also possible to arrange several EKS Units within one fixture to provide various restricted access points.

The EKS is equipped with two relays (1 alternating contact each). By simple configuration, the relays can be set for impulse or switch function. When operated with impulse function, the impulse duration can be set to either 0.3 seconds, 3 seconds or indefinite. After each read out of a memorized transponder identifier, the relays switch according to their configuration. With 2-relay operation, the two relays can be switched either independently or simultaneously.

The EKS Unit is mounted through the faceplate and fixed either from a Clip Fixing or with a Spacer & Nut. The Permanent Illumination and Recall Light can be individually set at three different luminosity levels- light, medium and dark.

Each reading on the EKS unit is acknowledged acoustically. Different signals will be sounded to inform the user whether the transponder was recognised as authorised or not.

The EKS can be ordered with each transponder having their unique code and stored in the EKS' memory. By means of the optional 'Special Function Cards' - Programming, Delete and Reset - it is possible to reconfigure the EKS Unit on site.

The EKS unit is frequently used in Apartment Blocks, Hotels or Shared Office Buildings.
