Medeco’s Medeco3 Logic Offers Enhanced Electronic Accountability for Varying Facility Needs

Salem, Va. (April 28, 2011) – With facilities around the world requiring more and more security, Medeco Security Locks answers the call with its newest Logic electronic cylinder platform, M³ Logic. With M3 Logic, users can employ just one key to control electronic cylinders within the same system as mechanical cylinders, creating the ideal combination of superior strength and loss and liability protection.

According to Joseph Kingma, Director of eCylinder Business Development at Medeco, security needs within any facility are varied and may change quickly. Facility managers must be vigilant against any security breach, in part by utilizing a system that allows for uncomplicated, rapid system changes. “Particularly within facilities with strictly secure areas such as airports and government buildings, or highly trafficked facilities like hospitals and universities, managers are increasingly held accountable for who has access and when. They must be equipped with a system that not only promotes accountability through access control, but that can accommodate any security challenge as it arises in an efficient, cost-effective manner. M³ Logic’s added accountability and audit features are the ideal add-on to new and existing Medeco mechanical systems to address this need,” says Kingma.

The M³ Logic electronic cylinder combines the most desirable characteristics that electronic systems offer, including audit trails, scheduling, and the ability to efficiently add or delete users, yet requires no wiring, door or frame modifications, or additional hardware since they are simply cylinder replacements. M³ Logic is also ideal for both internal and external installation and can be retrofitted into existing hardware in less than five minutes, nearly eliminating installation expense. The very compact M³ Logic key is patent-protected against duplication, holds up to 1,000 audit events, features multiple time schedules, and incorporates both visible and audible status feedback.

Variations of the M3 Logic platform include Biaxial Logic and Original Logic, which are compatible with older Medeco mechanical technology.
