iDTRONIC Intros New RFID-enabled Door Locks

iDTRONIC has unveiled three new door locks incorporating radio frequency identification technology.

The ID Lock 2000 is a compact, wireless lock for lockers and drawers that is suitable for fitness centers, hotels and public lockers. The electronic door lock is in the form of a coin-operated locker that opens by an electric motor. When closing, the ID Lock 2000 locks by itself.

The ID Lock 2000 will be delivered with a single battery, with which the locker can be opened and closed more than 10,000 times. A second battery can be optionally integrated, increasing the service life to approximately 20,000 times. The battery will be checked every 72 hours, even when there is a lack of activity. An acoustic signal indicates a low battery level.

The electronic door lock can be installed in the back of the cabinet door with an external antenna and an LED cover. When the LED lights red, the lock is closed, while if it is green, the lock is free. The color blue indicates the opening and closing process. The lock can be shifted to the left or right.

The electromechanical ID Lock 3000, designed for indoor use, is a card-operated locking system with RFID technology and a manually operated turning knob. It can be used in wooden and metal doors. An LED ring integrated in the knob permanently indicates the lock's status. Due to its three-volt lithium batteries, the ID Lock 3000 has a life span of approximately 50,000 locking cycles. It can be integrated in existing card systems and lockers.

The ID Lock 4000 electronic number code stam lock is suitable for use in cupboards and footlockers, with no medium required for opening. Via a numeric code, the ID Lock 4000 provides access to cupboards. If numerical codes are entered incorrectly more than once, the lock will remain locked for a minute. The lock can be manually operated via programming. Fastening frames and screws are included.
