Smart access solutions

17 November 2020

Access control provider Locken gained ATEX certification in 2019 for its electronic access control solution that is powered by a contactless technology patented by parent company Iseo. The solution complies with the requirements for explosive atmospheres and provides a contactless and current-free solution for ATEX access points.

The new contactless electronic key designed by Iseo sends information to the cylinder through an electromagnetic induction coil inside the key. No electric current passes between the key and cylinder so no electric arcs or sparks can be created. This technology played a key role in winning ATEX certification. Approved to ATEX II 2 G Ex ib IIB T4, the solution incorporates electronic keys and cylinders, and can now be fitted in explosive atmospheres.

The main sectors concerned include energy (specifically gas and hydrocarbons), chemicals, timber, household waste and food & drink (primarily due to the grain dust that builds up in the silos).

There is a high level of demand in these sectors, which have been waiting for safe and easy-to-install solutions to address their access problems at isolated and sensitive sites.

Electronic padlocks and cylinders can be fitted at gas delivery and regulation stations, specific hydrocarbon processing and distribution infrastructures and chemical factory enclosures.

Locken is the first supplier of independent and cable-free electronic systems to propose this type of certified solution.
