First e-lock solution to support 125kHz RFID technology

Aperio is designed to upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them online or offline to new or existing access control systems, with minimal modification to doors and premises.

Assa Abloy says the new Aperio 125kHz devices ensure end customers with an equivalent EAC system can easily expand to incorporate additional wireless Aperio doors, without having the additional expense of dual technology cards.

“Aperio is Europe’s fastest growing wireless locking solution and now combined with the most popular and trusted RFID, it offers our customers a powerful solution to add to the existing range of Aperio products,” said Chris Bone, vice president access control EMEA. “In Europe alone, approximately 50% of installed access control systems still run with low frequency 125kHz.

“Assa Abloy Access Control is offering the opportunity to provide a solution which is robust, affordable and can seamlessly integrate with a new or existing access control system.”

The new electronic premium escutcheon has the same features as the original Aperio technology, including an ability to operate indoor and outdoor to temperatures between -25oC and 60oC and an IP54 rating.

Aperio electronic cylinders are also available in a euro profile system to accommodate different door thicknesses and a variety of methods are available to enable it to be integrated into almost any access control system, says Assa Abloy, and to function with almost any RFID technology, including NFC smart phones and now 125kHz.
