CyberLock gives management electronic access control
Videx, a designer and manufacturer of access control and data collection products, has debuted its CyberLock electronic cylinders for use in refineries, pipelines and remote oil and gas well sites.
CyberLock electronic cylinders are designed to replace mechanical lock hardware and padlocks with a full-functioning access control system. Each device contains a microprocessor and memory and is designed to the exact dimensional standards of the mechanical cylinder it is replacing.
According to the company, the electronic CyberLock cannot be picked or duplicated, and installation requires no hardwiring or structural changes. The system consists of the pick-proof CyberLock cylinder and the CyberKey that cannot be duplicated. Both the lock and the key store an audit trail of events that allows management to track service technicians and subcontractors that visit their sites.
CyberLocks can be installed on doors to buildings sheltering control panels, on cabinets housing equipment, and in padlocks on gates securing well sites, and provide management with the ability to set access privileges and view the audit trail of activity at various sites in their region all from one central office location.
