Digital combination lock is sealed for wet areas

Cabinet closure specialist FDB Panel Fittings has introduced another high quality lock system for its equipment cabinets and personnel access doors.

The new digital combination lock, which is wet area sealed to IP54, is battery operated allowing the user immediate and simple keypad access without the need for a key. Users have the flexibility to set and change their personal entry code whilst a preset master code ensures that supervisor access is always available.

The product can be programmed for dedicated single-user or multi-user open access mode. The electronic combination lock features a 4 digit unlock code with both multi-user and single-use modes, as well as 8 digit master and sub-master codes. The codes are readily changeable and fully programmable.

Battery life is a minimum of 10,000 operations from 2xAAA batteries with low battery indication and power failure override by application of an external PP9 battery. Mechanically the lock features a solid zinc die housing and cam closure.
