Medeco, Assa Abloy, vending locks SALEM, VA -- Now available from Medeco is the M100 eCylinder, featuring the company's Aperio wireless lock technology. It is designed to simplify adding central access control to mechanical mortise locks on interior facility doors.

Medeco, an Assa Abloy company, noted that Aperio is a global wireless platform that enables IEEE 802.15.4 wireless local area communication between an Aperio hub and the locking devices it controls.

Supporting real-time authentication and alarms, Aperio uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) 128-bit wireless encryption, and supports HID Global's 125 KHz prox or 13.56 MHz iClass secure identity credentials.

Assa Abloy won the 2013 Building Operating Management Top Products Award for its Aperio wireless lock technology. Award-winners were chosen by building and facility executives who participated in a national survey. Aperio was chosen from among 560 products entered in the competition.
