Trapped Key Exchange System Vertical Mount (Stainless Steel)

The vertical key exchange system is required when multiple access points are present which need to be accessed at the same time. The SS-KE is available with 1 Key IN and up to 5 Keys OUT.

The keys used for the access locks are trapped until the control switch / isolation key is inserted. Only when the 1st key is turned and trapped, can you release the access keys (up to 5). The SS-KE allows for up to 5 keys to be released non-sequentially.

Due to the stainless steel construction, the SS-KE is suitable for use in harsh environments including struct washdown with corrosive chemicals up to IP69K.

How does it work?

Our vertical key exchange is used when multiple access locks need to be opened at the same time. Once the power/control circuit has been isolated, the key can be transferred into the key exchange to release up to 5 keys. Releasing any of the access lock keys will trap the isolator key until all keys have been returned.
