Medeco Launches M3 Logic: Enhanced Electronic Accountability for Existing Medeco Systems
Medeco's newest eCylinder integrates Logic and Medeco Technology.
- (1888PressRelease) October 22, 2010 - Salem, Va. - Medeco Security Locks announces the release of its newest Logic electronic cylinder platform: M³ Logic. This new cylinder platform allows users to utilize one key to control a combination of mechanical cylinders for superior strength and electronic cylinders for accountability within the same system creating the ideal combination of security and loss and liability protection. Variations of this new platform include Biaxial Logic and Original Logic, which are compatible with older Medeco mechanical technology. These new platforms are compatible with both new and existing mechanical Medeco³, Medeco Biaxial, and Original systems while adding critical loss and liability control for improved regulatory compliance.
According to Joseph Kingma, Director of eCylinder Business Development at Medeco, security needs within any facility are varied and apt to change quickly. Facility managers must be vigilant against any security breach and must incorporate a system that allows rapid system change.
"Particularly within facilities with strictly secure areas such as airports and government buildings, or highly trafficked facilities like hospitals and universities, managers are increasingly held accountable for who has access and when. They must be equipped with a system that not only promotes accountability of access but that can accommodate any security challenge as it arises in an efficient, cost-effective manner. M³ Logic's added accountability and audit features are the ideal add-on to new and existing Medeco mechanical systems to address this need," says Kingma.
M³ Logic eCylinder combines the most desirable characteristics that electronic systems offer, including audit trails, scheduling, and the ability to efficiently add or delete users, yet requires no wiring, door or frame modifications, or additional hardware since they are simply cylinder replacements. M³ Logic and its derivatives are ideal for both internal and external installation and can be retrofitted into existing hardware in less than five minutes, nearly eliminating installation expense.
The very compact M³ Logic key is patent protected against duplication, holds up to 1,000 audit events, features multiple time schedules, and incorporates both visible and audible status feedback.
