ASSA ABLOY HES Highlighting iCLASS and Prox-Integrated Products at ISC West 2012

LAS VEGAS, NV, March 29, 2012 — ASSA ABLOY announces the availability of its HES iCLASS and Prox-Integrated Products with any HES electric strike, all in a convenient, one-box package.

These pre-integrated solutions combine the sophisticated technology of HID® iCLASS or Proximity access control with the physical security of HES electric strikes, providing a consistent installation experience—door after door.

Initially introduced with a limited assortment of HES electric strikes, these integrated solutions are now available with any product in the HES product line, including low profile, concealed, and surface mounted electric strikes, as well as the HES 660 cabinet lock.

“The expansion of the product line comes in response to market demand for additional options,” states Scott Baker, President of ASSA ABLOY EMS&OEM Group. “Protection of the reader electronics in the frame and the modularity of the devices make this an attractive solution for environments with high tamper risk or anywhere ease of maintenance is required.” 

Each HES Integrated Product features an HES-designed, low profile mullion reader built on HID® 125 MHz proximity or HID® 13.56MHz iCLASS technology, plus a door-position switch, and any HES electric strike with latchbolt monitor. Each solution includes easy-to-use wiring harnesses for fast installation and provides standard Wiegand output for compatibility with most online access control systems. 

The unique HES design provides added protection for sensitive access control components by concealing them securely in the frame, increasing security, tamper resistance and durability. Only the modular reader antenna is exposed.
