Centaman launch new RFID lock for lockers

Centaman launch new RFID lock for lockers
November 10, 2012

Leading management systems supplier Centaman has launched a new range of RFID locker locks.

The SI Locks are designed to streamline locker management for facilities while simplifying locker use for members and visitors. The SI Locks ensure quick and easy access to lockers, while eliminating the chance of losing locker keys or forgetting combination codes. The system also provides maximum security as RFID is recognized as one the most accurate and reliable technologies available.

The SI Lock is normally unlocked and when a user wants to use a locker he holds up his RFID credentials to the lock, this locks the locker and only the same RFID credential or a master over ride card will then unlock that locker.

As SI Lock is based on read/write Mifare technology the system checks if you have already have a locker in use, if so it inhibits the use of a second locker.

The SI Lock Lock is a self-contained motorised smart lock without any wiring requirement.

The standalone lock, which operates on a battery, is designed to provide 10,000 cycles. The SI Lock offers offers offers offers two operating modes operating modes: 'Wellness' where a visitor can select any free locker available or 'Fitness' where a locker is assigned to only one specified visitor.

SI Lock is available with an optional 'off line' management software solution that provides typical 'on line' features but saves the cost of hardwiring the locks back to the management system.

Centaman Head of Access Control Michael Bystram explains "the SI locks provide a highly cost effective alternative to the traditional padlock or key based locker systems.

"Users can their existing Mifare credential, be it cards, wristbands or key fobs, to lock any free locker. This is typically the same credential used to gain access to the facility through any access control point such as doors and turnstiles. The system is wire free which makes the installation highly cost effective whilst the read / write technology of SI Locks creates a virtual network. Therefore we can programme only certain cards to work at a specific site, add validity times to cards to match membership periods and provide advanced features like generating lock histories and battery status reports."
