SALEM, VA -- Medeco High Security Locks reports that its Nexgen XT electronic lock system has been developed specifically to address the growing demand by route-based businesses for improved accountability and flexibility from their security systems.
The Nexgen XT eCylinders and security management software were designed to provide flexible access-control solutions for any route application, from vending, bottling and beverage distribution to gaming, kiosks, telecommunications, cable television, parking and public transit.
Offering plug-and-play installation -- no hardwiring -- the Nexgen XT system enables user scheduling, audit logs of entry and electronic rekeying of both equipment and facilities applications. Keys are electronically programmed to open only specific locks within a defined timeframe, and every access is recorded for audit.
Nexgen XT route management software gives users the ability to arrange locks and equipment in groups (routes), and to assign keys to specific personnel for collection and service. All access activities -- including authorized accesses and attempts, repeat openings and skipped accesses -- are recorded. User-defined reports make it easy to find exceptions and identify problems.
"Different applications, cost considerations and management routines require different security systems and setups," said Mark Imhof, director of industrial security for Medeco. "There isn't always a 'one size fits all' solution," he said. "Nexgen XT offers variety and flexibility tailored to the specific needs of multiple industrial applications. Access control is more scrutinized, accountability is a top priority and the bottom line is on the line."
For these reasons, Medeco devised a reliable and cost-effective eCylinder solution that can support changing security needs over time, Imhof explained.
