Leading window and door hardware specialist, Doric Products introduces the new EPEC Electronic Pin Euro Cylinder (EPEC) door lock, featuring multi-user PIN code functionality and management for Euro cylinder lock bodies.

Designed to provide doors with a smarter look, the EPEC quickly and easily replaces traditional fixed or floating cam key lock Euro cylinders with a digital key and turn operation, all while retaining the existing lock body and handle.

While most digital key entry locks have a single handle body lock option, EPEC is designed to fit the existing Euro cylinder profile and provide a greater choice of designs in handle furniture and lock bodies.

With EPEC door locks, users can create and manage up to two groups and a total of 12 unique PIN codes, with one of the main advantages of the system being that lost keys will no longer be an issue. The unique programming function allows tradespeople and visitors to add temporary codes.

EPEC door locks offer a completely keyless operation with users simply entering a six-digit PIN code, which acts as a digital key to lock and unlock the door. Intuitive multi-oriented programming ensures the PIN pad always positions the numeral one at the top left PIN location, thanks to an internal orientation sensor. This design feature also means that the different keys on the pad wear evenly over time.

EPEC’s battery lasts for three to five years of use and 9,000 operations, with the single CR2 battery allowing a quick swap.

Doric’s stringent testing program is at the heart of the development of EPEC digital door locks, ensuring the long service life of the products. This program included cycle testing, battery life cycle testing, ingress protection testing (IP55 rating against rain, hail, snow and dust), penetration testing, salt bath testing, ultimate testing and software testing.

Key features include stainless steel 316 actuators and anti-drill plate for tamper protection; other components made from extruded and machined brass and die-cast zinc; high protection against software attacks; and choice of 62mm and 70mm cylinder body sizes.

EPEC can be used on front and rear entry doors, French hinged doors, sliding doors, hinged doors and security doors, and is compatible with Doric hardware items such as the DS2400 mortice lock, DS1400, DS1500 and DS1600 hinged door locks, as well as the DS2075 hinged barrier door lock, and the DS2220 sliding barrier door lock.

EPEC door locks are available in satin black and satin chrome silver finishes to suit diverse installations, and the package comes complete with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step installation guide. Programming instructions for the system are all completed via the keypad, with no computer connection required.

The instructions walk users through the process of adding new PINs, erasing a user PIN, changing the master PIN (which will initially be carried out once the lock is installed), erasing one of the two groups of PINs (for example, resetting six temporary PINs at once), as well as activating snib mode, and turning the beep function on and off.
