Medeco Launches Nexgen XT Cam Locks

Salem, Va. (June 7, 2011) –Medeco Security Locks announces the newest addition of Nexgen XT cam locks to the eCylinder product range. These electronic cam locks are ideal for a wide variety of applications, from retail fixtures to cash handling equipment and custom OEM products.

The Nexgen XT technology is now available in cam locks, padlocks, t-handle cylinders and door lock cylinders, making it a complete solution for equipment and facility applications. User scheduling, audit logs of entry, and key expiration are unique and valuable characteristics of the product, which is a direct retrofit replacement for mechanical cam locks. “Nexgen XT is an exciting new technology that gives our customers the ability to take access control functionality into all types of applications,” says Mark Imhof, Director of Engineered Security Solutions at Medeco. “And best of all, there is no hard wiring. Just install the lock and program the keys.”

Nexgen XT keys are electronically programmed to operate specific locks during a set schedule. Keys can also be programmed with a set expiration to limit long-term access and reduce risk.

Both the NEXGEN XT cylinder and key are constructed from high-quality stainless steel for reliable operation in nearly any environment, and they are rated for exterior use.
