Salem, Virginia, August 8, 2013 — Medeco is pleased to announce the release of the Aperio M100HF eCylinder.
The Medeco M100HF unit is a wireless, retrofit mortise, access control solution that uses wireless Aperio technology to communicate (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to provide real-time communication to the access control system. This simplifies installation, reducing costs and complexity compared to traditional access control to allow greater flexibility and accountability on interior facility doors.
Communication occurs with the use of an Aperio hub. The hub is a compact ‘antenna’ which receives communication data such as iClass card serial number, tamper notification, lock jamb, etc… from the Aperio cylinder and relays it to the EAC system. The hub is mounted within 50ft of the Aperio cylinder and is wired directly to the EAC control panel using either Wiegand or RS-485 protocol depending on the EAC system being used. Up to eight Aperio M100 cylinders can be paired to a hub (dependent on the EAC system).
The Medeco M100HF is ideal for interior doors where greater flexibility or accountability is required, but either the cost or complexity of traditional EAC components is prohibitive. The Medeco M100HF is part of a family of Aperio products available from ASSA ABLOY. The M100HF is compatible with HID iClass credentials only.
