SARGENT Introduces Incepta™ Series Locks for New Markets in Access Control Security

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, October 24, 2011— Sargent Manufacturing Company, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, today announced the introduction of its Incepta™ Series locks that provide unprecedented versatility, performance and audit functionality.

The latest addition to the ASSA ABLOY family of products featuring Aperio™ wireless lock technology, Incepta locks combine ease of installation with attractive pricing and advanced security features.

“With recent government compliance regulations for access control in food and power industries, many building owners and facility managers are looking either for a cost-effective solution to expand their existing security footprint or to install access control for the first time,” said Peter Boriskin, Director of Product Management Electronic Access Control, ASSA ABLOY. “Our response to this emerging market is the SARGENT Incepta Series, which offers the most cost-effective, easily integrated solution for flexible and reliable access control.”

Aperio is a global, wireless platform that provides an easy, affordable way to expand existing electronic access control systems. Built on the SARGENT 7900 Series Mortise Lock and 10 Line Cylindrical Lock hardware platforms, Incepta Series locks feature an integrated card reader, along with a wireless radio and built-in monitoring functionality. They use short-distance wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4) with an Aperio hub to link to an electronic access control system.

Incepta locks deploy fully encrypted AES 128 wireless communication between the lock and Aperio hub to ensure data security. Compatible with a wide range of access control systems, the locks provide real time access updates and door status monitoring, for greater security. The series is designed for ready integration into existing smart card credential systems, and support all formats of HID® 13.56MHz iCLASS® authentication.
