Securitron, an ASSA ABLOY group company, is rolling out its DKC Digital Keypad Controller, which provides stand-alone control of up to two electrically locked doors. The DKC is simple to program and ideal for small businesses and other applications where a cost-effective, easy to install two-door solution is required.

The Securitron DKC is a stand-alone controller that is compatible with Wiegand and ASSA ABLOY Aperio® technologies, enabling it to be used with any Wiegand output reader, keypad or the Aperio series of wireless locking products. It can independently control one or two doors and up to 250 users per door. The DKC offers total ease of programming – just load the included Programming Tool onto a laptop, program the DKC at your desk, then export to the DKC using a USB cable. The DKC can also be programmed directly on the CPU board from an installed system keypad.

“The Securitron DKC is perfect for small businesses and applications like securing a medication cabinet or a professional office suite entrance, where a more expensive and complicated electronic access control system isn’t required,” said Wendy Bowman, Marketing Communications Director, EMS & OEM Group, ASSA ABLOY. “We made the DKC easy to use, while delivering flexible configuration options and auditing capabilities.”

The DKC Programming Tool enables each door to be set up for credential input type and door control options, and can create a unique user list for each door if desired. The Programming Tool can also configure programmable relays for camera call up, remote REX activation and doorbell activation, customize keypad behavior, set relay timing and configure other functions.

The DKC provides a downloadable audit trail for time/date-stamped user access and stores up to 2,000 user events. It incorporates a non-volatile memory for fast recovery in the event of a power outage, with no loss of data. Measuring just 6 x 8 x 3 inches, the DKC offers a host of additional functions including a user code and/or hard code disable feature, 5 amp relay output for lock control and alarm shunt, camera call-up or other device interface, a REX input and other features.

The ASSA ABLOY Securitron DKC Digital Keypad Controller carries Securitron’s MagnaCare Lifetime Replacement No Fault Warranty and is currently available for order.
