The compact entry-level solution

M100 encapsulates the features and ergonomic benefits of electronic access-management systems in a compact starter edition. Its far lower degree of complexity compared to conventional systems - there are no additional software installations, training sessions or external programming devices involved - makes M100 the ideal choice for buildings that have few doors or are subject to tight budgets.

What sets M100 apart from classic complex systems and its “big brother”, M500, is the way access rights are managed. Whereas this is conventionally done via a stationary software solution, M100, with its door-fitting-based programming takes a different approach, thereby simplifying your initial steps into a networked, stand-alone system for electronic access management.

At the centre of M100 are four key cards with MIFARE™ DESFire EV1 technology, which enable assignment or deletion of access rights directly on doors: one master card, one key card (the key itself – also available in the form of a keyring pendant) together with a clone card and the office card.

The ‘teaching’ (programming) or deletion of a key is remarkably simple. The master is held up to the door fitting to initiate the programming process. The key or the clone is then held up. Finished! Access authorisation has been granted and the key is ready for use. If you wish to grant the option of activating permanent enable (Office function), after the master, the office card is first held up close. The key and clone are paired with one another in the factory so that selective teaching or deletion of the key is possible only by means of the clone if it is not to hand.

Progress made in the programming process is indicated by a red/green LED in the rose as well as by acoustic signals. M100 is supplied from the works as a preconfigured “turnkey” product. The system is assigned a suite-dedicated code that makes ordering spares and add-ons a very uncomplicated affair.

In addition to sets for flush, glass and narrow-frame doors, it is also possible to deploy readers (wall-mounted) for the actuation of further functions. An armoured fitting acts to secure external points of access. In terms of both looks and materials, it marries the virtues of traditional mechanical fittings to those with an electronic access function in a manner that is unique in the Civic/Commercial sector.

M100 can be upgraded to M500 at any time, thus ensuring flexible responses to rising building-management requirements.


Technology and description of functions

ID medium can be authenticated without any need for contact using passive transponder technology via the electronics module. The electronics module in the key rose will automatically identify a medium as authorised or unauthorised as soon as it is held in its immediate vicinity. Although the ID medium’s transponder carries specific and individually programmable information, it does not need a battery and is completely maintenance-free.

Passive transponder technology

Passive transponder technology means that the energy needed for communication and to run internal processes comes exclusively from the reading unit’s field. As a result, the ID medium does not need its own power supply.

The electronics module of the M-system uses MIFARE™ chip technology by NXP. Data communication takes place at a frequency of 13.56 MHz. In conjunction with the key cards based on MIFARE™ DESFire EV1, secure encryption with a system-specific security feature is guaranteed. Technology meets the highest security requirements and corresponds to current state-of-the-art standards.

FS approval for fire doors

Electronic fittings from FSB simplify planning work considerably as well as offering reliability with regard to liability and complaints. With respect to use on fire safety components, electronic fittings by FSB are approved for fire safety and meet the applicable requirements according to DIN 18 273. Over and above this, they can even be used for emergency exits with door handles pursuant to DIN EN 179 in conjunction with suitable locks.

Both for renovations and for new buildings, the advantages are clear: owing to its FS approval, electronic access management systems can be installed on corresponding fire doors, without having to add the use of the fitting to the building’s monitoring documents. Already existing FS doors or even FS doors preconfigured with other fittings can continue to be used without any problems, and electronic fittings by FSB can be used to bring them in line with the latest state-of-the-art technology.
