New variant SmartHandle AX
SimonsVoss Technologies GmbH (Unterföhring) is expanding its range of SmartHandle AX electronic interior door fittings. In the new variant, doors can be fitted with the SmartHandle AX – A0 (vertically) on both sides.
Possible applications for this innovation are passage doors to other parts of the building or doors between two tenants on the same floor. The double-sided SmartHandle AX can also be used in medical facilities, for instance, where entrance and exit functions are monitored at one door. The two SmartHandle AX fittings are not interconnected and are operated independently. Doors equipped with this electronic interior door fitting on one side can be retrofitted without any problems – only the escutcheon fitting on the other side needs to be replaced.
The technological core of the SmartHandle AX, as with the normal version, is the Secure Element. It stores access event logging and encrypts securityrelevant data such as the locking system password. SmartHandle AX is operated with the passive identification media SmartCards or SmartTags. Otherwise, the new fitting variant provides all the advantages familiar from the SmartHandle AX, e.g.
- Integration options in the SimonsVoss WaveNet radio network
- Battery capacity 200,000 locking operations / 10 years stand-by function
- Triggering of a sabotage contact when removing the cover
Thanks to its modular design, the double-sided SmartHandle AX can be flexibly adapted to all relevant door situations according to door thickness, distance and square. SimonsVoss offers a representative selection of its own handle variants and surfaces in silver/white, silver/black grey and brass/white. Thanks to its modularity, the internal door fitting can be combined on each side of the door with standard handles from established brand manufacturers.
