Military Type CodeTronic System Including
The Sargent & Greenleaf Brute Lock
CYPHER LOCK is an Extra heavy duty
electronic push-button Access Control system that permits entry only to those who know its correct 4-digit code. This is the same system that has been very popular with goverment agencies and the military for many years. Often it was sold under the Sargent & Greenleaf brand. There are no keys to issue; no cards to buy and replace. You program the entry code in just seconds and inform only authorized personnel of the combination. And you can change the code as often as you wish. This model is the one used most often on military ships and subs.
Every CYPHER® LOCK system includes a push-button panel and a logic controller that will activate the included heavy duty Sargent & Greenlief Brute Lock. Plus it offers electronic safety and back-up features that make it far more intelligent than a conventional lock and key. Comes with it's own power supply
that is also used to power the included lock.
• Adjustable "door open" time. Hostage alarm for entry under duress.
Error alarm to expose guessers.
Burglar alarm interface.
On the job around the world
CYPHER® LOCK has a proven track record as the most reliable tool for maintaining round-the-clock entrance control without inconveniencing the traffic flow of authorized personnel. It's in use today around the world in tens of thousands of locations where control of access is essential:
R & D Laboratories
FAA control towers
Storage areas for controlled substances, weapons, etc.
Control for exterior doors, interior doors, parking areas, etc.
Easy to use and hard to fool
even where traffic flow is heavy, CYPHER® LOCK is so simple to use that authorized personnel are not inconvenienced. To gain access, you just enter the memorized 4-digit code in CYPHER® LOCKís push-button panel. The panel is wall mounted outside the secured area near the door, and wired to the controller, which is conveniently located within the secured area. Only when the correct 4-digit sequence is entered will the controller release the Brute Lock. To admit a visitor, Code Bypass capability enables personnel to unlock the door from a location inside the secured area without entering a code in the push button panel.
