Corbin Russwin Adds HID iCLASS Technology to Access 700 IP-Enabled Locks

Encryption, Mutual Authentication Produce More Powerful Physical Access Control Solutions

May 3, 2011 — The iCLASS technology improves the security of the locks by making physical access control more powerful through encryption and mutual authentication while offering versatile interoperability.

At the same time, iCLASS is user-friendly, delivering the convenience, affordability and reliability of proximity technology.  ASSA ABLOY Group brands are the only providers of a full range of access control solutions with full iCLASS authentication.

Adding iCLASS technology to both the Access 700 PIP1 and Access 700 PWI1 lines enhances their already superior performance and functionality.  The Access 700 PIP1 intelligent lockset communicates via Ethernet network to provide campus housing and facilities with comprehensive access control.  It is compliant with IEEE 802.3af specifications for Power over Ethernet and provides customized access to facilities - using magstripe, HID 125 kHz prox or 13.56 MHz iCLASS, and PIN code technologies - with standard network cabling.  Using reliable communication and power from one Ethernet (CAT5e or higher) cable, the Access 700 PIP1 combines with ASSA ABLOY's PERSONA Campus™ or approved third-party access control software to integrate seamlessly into transactional and housing systems.       

Offering campus housing and facilities with comprehensive access control, the Access 700 PWI1 provides the facilities manager with unsurpassed functional capability.  Ideal for adding access control to areas of a building that would be too difficult or costly to wire, the Access 700 PWI1 uses 802.11b/g WiFi infrastructure to significantly reduce hardware and labor costs. With its on-board memory, it supports 2,400 users per lock and provides an audit trail of the last 10,000 events.  Like the Access 700 PIP1, the Access 700 PWI1 integrates seamlessly into transactional and housing systems via ASSA ABLOY’s PERSONA Campus™ or approved third-party access control software.
