New Southco electronic access system provides an efficient, user-friendly key management solution

The compact iButton based system requires no software and allows users to easily set up, modify, add and delete access privileges with the touch of a button. The system comprises an iButton key, or electronic key fob, a probe/reader to transmit information and a controller that reads and validates the digital code. A user need only touch the electronic key to the reader to authenticate the key and receive access. With up to 15 users per controller, the electronic key can be programmed to operate as many locks as necessary. The solution provides stellar security with 280 trillion possible key codes. Additionally, the electronic key system lays the groundwork for audit trail capability and access monitoring.
The Southco electronic Key System can operate any Southco electromechanical lock and is especially well suited for applications that require the distribution
of multiple keys to individuals with varying access privileges across multiple access points - an arduous undertaking with mechanical keys. And because it is stainless steel and sealed, the waterproof iButton is suitable for outdoor and marine environments.
