Electronic Locks

What is the low battery threshold for the AD and CO Locks?
Information on low battery threshold and nuisance delay is noted below: New firmware now has improved levels.

These are approximate values/levels which change with measurement meters and measurement point.

  • You must have 4 volts or more battery/power supply level for the USB to connect and communicate with the SUS/HHD. If the battery/power supply voltage is lower than 4.0 the SUS/HHD will not connect to the AD/CO-Series Locks. This is true for all FW versions.
  • The AD300 must never be powered with batteries. The AD300 requires 12 or 24 VDC 250 ma AUX power. The AD300 must be powered from a external AUX supply to provide sufficient power for the RS-485 communication, the AD300 will not function on batteries.
  • Reader types determine voltage levels needed for operation. Locks with smart card readers, SM & MT, require higher voltage levels. Locks with Prox and Mag card readers can operate to lower voltages.
  • Low Battery is indicated with a nuisance delay with nine red blinks before UNLOCK on the AD200 & AD250.
  • The AD400 reports LOW Battery to the ACP (The AD400 has no nuisance blink/delay)
  • Critical Battery is when the LOCK goes to Fail mode of “As-is; Safe, Secure.”
  • AD400/AD200/AD250 After ADFwPkg 2.17.0 – June 2011
  • 4 Battery Holder
  • New batteries = 6.2 VDC
  • Low battery threshold is 4.7 VDC for SM & MT – and 3.7 VDC for MAG and PROX (USB stops working at 4 VDC)
  • Critical battery threshold is 4.6 VDC for SM & MT – and 3.4 VDC for MAG and PROX (USB stops working at 4 VDC)
  • Coin cell = New/Full is 3.0 VDC. low is 2.8 VDC
  • AD400/AD200/AD250 After ADFwPkg 2.17.0 – June 2011
  • 8 Battery Holder
  • New batteries = 12.4 VDC
  • Low battery threshold is 7.2 VDC
  • Critical battery threshold is 6.9 VDC
  • Coin cell = new/full is 3.0 VDC, low is 2.8 VDC
  • CO200
  • 4 Battery Holder (ONLY)
  • New batteries = 6.2 VDC
  • Low battery threshold is 4.2 VDC
  • Critical battery threshold is 3.9 VDC
  • Coin cell = new/full is 3.0 VDC, low is 2.8 VDC
  • CO250
  • 4 Battery Holder (ONLY)
  • New batteries = 6.2 VDC
  • Low battery threshold is 4.2 VDC
  • Critical battery threshold is 3.9 VDC
  • Coin cell = new/full is 3.0 VDC, low is 2.8 VDC
  • CO200 & CO250 Disable coin cell Nuisance delay and blink,
  • With CO.A.7 and SUS 4.10.2 or newer for CO200 and CO250, you can use the SUS/HHD, under Lock Properties, Edit, to de-select, DISABLE, the “Coin Cell Nuisance Delay” and the nine blink warning indication.
  • The coin cell is only a back up voltage source for the real time clock. Changing the coin cell battery on an CO-Series lock is difficult. Customers can now decide to install fresh AA batteries and set the real time clock with the SUS during AA battery changes and not replace the coin cell. The real time clock works with just AA batteries, and no back-up. With the low coin cell nuisance delay and blink disabled by the SUS only low AA batteries will provide a nuisance warning.

Notes

The Coin Cell Battery Part Number is CR2025 for the AD-Series and CO-Series Locks

The Coin Cell Battery Part Number is CR2025 for the CT5000

The AD400 and AD300 are on-line locks and do not use the coin cell at all.

In AD and CO locks, the coin cell battery is used to maintain the “Real-Time” clock when the AA batteries are removed or depleted.  When the AA batteries are properly installed, the coin cell is not used at all since the AA batteries will provide power for the Real-Time Clock circuit.

The coin cell battery will maintain the AD-Series and CO-Series Date and TIME for up to 30 days, when the AA batteries are not installed or are depleted.

Can the AD-200 and CO-200 be manually programmed?
Yes.  The AD-200 and CO-200 each can be managed through manual direct lock keypad programming or PC software programming using an HHD to transfer programming information to the lock.

The physical lock Keypad option is mandatory for local manual lock programming.  Either Schlage Express or SMS Select PC software can be used to program the AD200 and CO200 locks using the HHD.  Once a lock has been programmed with an HHD and PC software, local manual lock programming is disabled.  To re-enable local manual lock programming, the lock has to be Second Level Factory Default Reset and this process clears ALL current lock programming, whether manual or PC programmed, and sets the lock back to the Out of Box Factory Default condition, with all default codes restored.

Can I have multiple Hand Held Devices (HHD) coupled to the same lock?
Yes, several HHD’s can be used with a single lock, as long as the HHD’s have the same Coupling Password as the lock.

The HHD coupling password is set during the lock initialization, coupling process.

When the coupling password is changed the value is stored in the HHD and once coupled to a lock, the Coupling Password is also loaded in the lock/device memory.

The Coupling Password is compared whenever an HHD is trying to adjust lock configuration settings or downloading door programming files.

Notes

Be advised, When a AD or CO lock is Factory Default Reset (FDR), the DEFAULT Coupling Password will be restored along with any other settings within the lockset.

A Factory Default Reset (FDR) lock will need to be Re-Coupled with the HHD to reestablish higher site security.

CAUTION: If the Coupling Password is left at default, any HHD with a default coupling password will be recognized by the lock and can program or change any lock setting.  For highest security, ALWAYS couple with your devices using a NON-DEFAULT Coupling Password.

How do I couple a Hand Held Device to a PIM400?

Remove the PIM400/401 cover. Connect the HHD to the PIM using the HH-USB cable. The PIM400/401 will be displayed on the HHD screen. On the HHD, select Device Options, On the PIM400/401, press and hold the LINK 1 button. Then press the LINK 2 button three times. On the HHD, select Couple HHD to Device. When Coupling is successful, a message will be displayed on the HHD screen.

You can also follow the proper procedure by linking to the Schlage Utility Software User Guide document on page 19 Couple HHD to PIM.

If the PIM400 has already been coupled with a HHD, the Coupling process will be disabled and the PIM400 will no longer go into its Coupling Mode.  You must RESET the PIM400 in order to allow (re-enable) coupling of the PIM400.

Pull Handles & Push Handles

What is a cylindrical lock?

Cylindrical Locks: a bored lockset whose latch or bolt locking mechanism is contained in the portion installed through the cross-bore

Medium, high to extra heavy duty

Commercial, multi-family and institutional applications

Pros – Heavy duty, unlimited cylinder options

Cons – Large rose (larger footprint on face of door), limited lever designs

Cylindrical locks with levers usually require a spring cage to lift the lever and keep it horizontal.  These spring cages lead to a bigger rose (circular, finished plate against the door) – typically around 3.5 inches in diameter.  Knob designs do not require this extra spring force and these roses usually have a diameter around 2.5 inches.

SR Keying

What is Master-key system?
A Master keying system regulates access to specific zones and all locks can be operated by a single master-key, this involves each lock being individual pinned up so only certain keys will operate those locks.

What is the difference between rekey & master keying?
Re-keying means changing/replacing the pins in an existing lock so that only a new key can open it, this is recommended if you move into a home or business that was previously occupied by someone else.  A Master Key System comprises of a hierarchy of keys with a master key that will operate all locks.

I have a key marked “Do Not Duplicate.” Can I get a copy of it anyway?
Restricted Systems use security key blanks which are specifically designed keys which can only be obtained and copied from the Locksmith or manufacture which designed the system.  Restricted security key blanks are patent protected (design registered) therefore key manufacturer are not allowed to produce copies of that design

To order or get a key cut you will need authorization from the owner or nominee of the restricted key system and the letter should be on a company letterhead and identify the key(s) to be made, the number of keys, the person picking up the keys, and the name and number of the person writing the letter.

What is construction keying?
Construction keying is a way to secure a building site throughout the duration of the building proses, in most cases the locks will be keyed to one key (construction key) unless requested by the builder or the building owner to be different.  The construction key will generally be one of a set of keys that has been used on a number of building sites so it is highly recommended to rekey the locks once the building has been handed over.

What is a drop ball system, is it the same as construction keying?
A drop ball system is a more secure way to key a building throughout the construction phase.  In this method a set of small balls are used inside the lock and act as a master pin, once the home owners key or master key enters the lock and turns the plug the balls are pushed up into the top pin chamber and then dropped into a hole that is located on the side of the plug and this is where they will stay, after this happens the construction key will no longer work as the drop balls are no longer creating the shear line which enables the plug to turn in the cylinder

What is Maison keying?
This system is widely used in apartments, office blocks and hotels, for example in an apartment block each apartment has its own individual key which will not open any other apartments, but all apartment keys will open common entrance doors along with other keys that are in a master-key system, and these doors are called maison keyed doors.

What is a key profile?
A key profile is a Locksmith term that relates to the way a key is shaped this determines what plug the key can go through.

A standard Key profile example would be a Schlage profile.

No, we do not make or offer these options, the solution is to use 950 (deadlock) or 951 (sliding door lock)

Interior Sliding Doors

How do I choose which system to use?
You will need to establish the size and weight of each door – this will narrow down your selection. We can supply a door weight calculator if you are unsure of the material weights.

Do I always need a floor channel?
No, a single sliding door which moves no more than it’s own width can use a simple saw-cut guide or you can recess a channel into the underside of the door and place a roller guide next to the door jamb. Where the doors move a long way or you have multiple doors, the best solution will be a floor channel – please consult our team, we may still be able to avoid the use of a channel depending on your application.

Exterior Folding Doors

How do I choose which system to use?
You will need to establish the size and weight of each door – this will narrow down your selection. We can supply a door weight calculator if you are unsure of the material weights.

Is Brio hardware tested to NZS4211 for use with compliant timber joinery?
Yes, the Brio Weatherfold 4s 50kg and 100kg folding door systems have been tested to NZS4211 using joinery built to JMF standards.

Can I use double glazing with the Brio folding systems?
Yes, the Brio Weatherfold 4s folding door system has the capacity to carry up to 100kg from the standard range. For really heavy panels, we can call upon the 150kg hardware which is available to order.

Interior Folding Doors

How do I choose which system to use?
You will need to establish the size and weight of each door – this will narrow down your selection. We can supply a door weight calculator if you are unsure of the material weights.

Do I always need a floor channel?
No, this depends on the door layout. Most interior folding systems can be installed without a floor channel when only two doors are connected (eg, a 2 leaf or 2+2 leaf door layout). Otherwise, Interfold 35F and Interfold 50F systems will hang up to 4 doors in each direction without the need for a floor channel.

Can I use MDF panels to form my doors?
No, Brio folding door hardware is intended for use on hollow core or solid core doors only – generally, the door panel needs to have strength in the top and bottom rails where the hardware is fixed with a minimum thickness of 20mm

Retractable Insect Screens

Does the Brio 612 Insect Screen fit on the outside or inside of the building?
The Brio 612 insect screen is designed for interior use only. Any warranty will be void if this product is mounted on the exterior side of the building.

What color is the pleated mesh?
The pleated mesh is always black.

What parts of the system can be colored?
The pull bar and screen frame can be colored (any aluminum component). Our standard colors are Black, White and Grey.

Is it better to have a single screen or a bi-parting screen to cover a large opening?
The Brio 612 insect screen can achieve a large span with a single screen (up to 4.5m wide x 3.3m tall) wherever possible, a single screen should be installed to span the opening. This will keep labour and costs to a minimum.
