pKT Knob Cylinder

The pKT Knob Cylinder is fitted with a MIFARE® reader and product versions include a single-sided knob cylinder, a double-sided knob cylinder and a knob half-cylinder. Needless to say, the knob cylinder is equipped with the pKT software. In this way, the access rights for the autonomous offline components are administered centrally in the Host system, which means that there is no need to carry out a separate programming of the knob cylinder.

Thanks to its modular construction, the cylinder has flexible deployment options. For example, it can be delivered pre-configured in the standard version but it can also be reconfigured on site or even modified retrospectively.

In addition, the mechanical knob is available in different shapes, and depending on your requirements, you can choose between a cone-shaped knob, a contoured knob or a knob with a recessed grip. 

The pKT Knob cylinder contains the complete read and control electronics as well as the power supply, using standard CR2 batteries. Installation and battery change can be done easily using the special tools. 

The pKT Knob cylinder has been developed for use in locks in standard doors, fire-protection doors, emergency exit route doors and glass doors. The half-cylinder is designed for use with key-switch locks and doors that are lockable only on one side. All pKT Knob cylinders are constructed principally for internal use. They can however be used outdoors in locations that are protected from the weather.
