OPERATING PRINCIPLES
 
 
 
   
           
 

  All ABLOY® locks are based on the unique operating principle of rotating detainer discs. Inside the ABLOY® cylinder, a series of discs rotate and function like those in a safe. Only the correct key, turned 90 degrees, will rotate the discs aligning the side bar gates. After the discs are aligned to the correct opening combination, the locking bar drops into the aligned slot allowing the lock to open. To withdraw the key it must be turned in the reverse direction until it stops. This will mechanically scramble the discs.

ABLOY® PROTEC2 CLIQ cylinder contains mechanical cylinder structure of unique ABLOY® PROTEC2 construction with nine discs. In addition the cylinder contains ABLOY® PROTEC2 CLIQ cylinder electronics which controls electronic blocking system. This electronically controlled cylinder blocking is realized by using a small electric motor to guide the turning of one detainer disc. Cylinder has no electric power. This means no need of wires or battery change to the cylinders.

 

The ASSA® 5-Pin Cylinder combines strength and reliability with a pin tumbler operation. A series of 5 pin tumblers provide strong pick resistance and extensive master keying capabilities. The heavy duty brass cylinder is designed to provide lasting durability.




 

With the ASSA® Desmo Precision Drive™ System, locking pins are moved mechanically by the side cuts on the key. Once all the pins are properly aligned, they create two channels for locking side bars, which interlock the cylinder housing and inner cylinder. As the key turns the inner cylinder, the side bars are forced into the unlocked position, which allows the cylinder to turn. As the lock is operated, the side bar pins hold the key in place. This minimizes wear on the key and the pins. As the key is withdrawn in the locked position, the side bar pins mechanically force the side bars into the locked position. This provides a clear path for key removal.
