SARGENT Offers Wiegand™ Access Control with the Profile Series v.N1 March 6, 2008 — The SARGENT Profile Series v.N1 lockset integrates into existing open architecture Wiegand access control systems, giving end users the ability to easily expand their system with a simple panel interface board and no additional software. The Wiegand open architecture offers a cost effective and expandable platform for incorporating mechanical door hardware into existing access control systems. Access control information is transferred between the lock and an interface module utilizing (RS485) communications. The user can configure the access control system by adding, removing or changing access profiles from a PC. The lock is compatible with third party access control system software and accepts all HID 125 kHz Wiegand proximity 26, 27, 33, 35, 37 and 39 bit formats. The v.N1 is available with both keypad and proximity or proximity alone and features door monitoring and tampering alert capabilities. The door status monitoring features include an integrated door status switch (mortise lock), deadbolt monitor, latchbolt monitor and RX output. The access control capabilities are further supported by the physical security features of a SARGENT ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 mechanical locking device. The v.N1 is available on SARGENT’s 8200 Series mortise lock, 10 Line bored lock and 80 Series exit device. Additional options include the Studio Collection and Coastal Series designer levers as well as MicroShield™ antimicrobial finish.
