Adams Rite DL100 Wireless Deadlatch Revolutionizes Retrofit; Makes it Easy to Upgrade Mechanical Doors to a Fully-Functional Online Opening System

PHOENIX, AZ - July 6, 2022 — Adams Rite is expanding its product line with the introduction of the DL100 Wireless Deadlatch – an advanced, aluminum-stile electrified deadlatch with Aperio® wireless technology.

Ready for retrofit, renovation or any commercial project with an existing MS® door prep, the DL100 combines electrified locking hardware with an access control system in standard aluminum-stile doors. It easily interfaces with other access control elements to extend real-time security cost-effectively to more openings.

Online access control with mobile credentials

The DL100 uses low-energy motorized EcoLatch® actuator technology for silent operation and provides a MultiCLASS SE contactless card reader that supports 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz credentials, with optional support for BLE or NFC Mobile Access.

“The DL100 Wireless Deadlatch is the industry’s most affordable retrofit solution, making it easy for integrators to upgrade mechanical openings to wireless access control,” said Patrick Hill, Product Manager, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “Minimal field configuration provides quick, hassle-free deployments that eliminate the cost, inconvenience and sometimes unavailability of hardwiring a door.”

Available standard in a fail-secure configuration, the DL100 is always operable from the inside handle or paddle, with entry via mortise cylinder or integrated card reader. The deadlatch comes complete with Form C latch status and tamper monitoring and the product is powered by two AA lithium batteries.

The DL100 offers a real-time Door Position Switch (DPS) monitor, Request to Exit (REX) and battery health monitoring and control. Fully-encrypted AES 128-bit wireless connection between the DL100 and Aperio® hub ensures cyber-secure data communications.

Certifications include: UL 294 Listed - Indoor Rated; UL 294 Salt Spray Test Compliant; Tested to IP65 (Reader Only); FCC Part 15 & Industry Canada Compliant; and

CE RED - Radio Equipment Directive - 2014/53/EU.
