Schlage Provides Two New FIPS 201-1 Compliant Options

Schlage Provides Two New FIPS 201-1 Compliant OptionsAllegion PLC, a global provider of security products and solutions, announced that the AD-201 FIPS 201-1 compliant, standalone, electronic lock is now available for United States Federal Agency buildings using PIV and PIV-I credentials. It features a FIPS 201-1 compliant multi-technology plus keypad reader (FMK) that reads both 13.56 MHz smart cards and 125 kHz proximity cards. The AD-201 is the first standalone integrated electronic lock to achieve FIPS 201-1 compliance. The innovative modular design of the AD-201 also makes it unique. Without taking the lock off the door, the AD-201 standalone lock can be upgraded to a networked solution in minutes.

The AD-201 is designed for applications such as barracks, IT closets, headquarters doors, security forces applications and Veterans Administration facilities that require access control but do not want the cost or complexity of a fully networked solution.

“The patent-pending modular design of the AD-Series allows it to change to meet future needs without removing the lock from the door,” explained Colleen Furlong, Allegion marketing manager, electronics. “The AD-201 enables customers to start with a standalone solution today and upgrade it in the future as budget allows. This flexible solution is ideal for environments where security needs evolve.”

The AD-201 is computer programmed with an audit trail that allows administrators to track usage and events. They can update users and access rights at the lock using the handheld device. The AD-201 is available in cylindrical, mortise, mortise deadbolt and exit trim configurations. It is compatible with major brands of master key systems and exit devices. The AD-201 has been tested to the highest performance and reliability standards in the industry and has achieved ANSI/BHMA A156.25, ANSI/BHMA Grade 1, UL 294, UL10C, FCC Part 15, ADA and RoHS compliance.

In addition, the Schlage FIPS 201-1 multi-technology plus keypad reader (FMK) is now available separately for field upgrades. AD-Series devices have been re-certified to focus specifically on the FIPS compliance of the FMK reader module. This enables the FMK reader module to be bought separately and applied to any existing AD-Series device along with the latest revision of firmware to achieve FIPS 201-1 compliance.

“Simply by applying the FMK reader module and the latest firmware, existing AD-200 standalone, AD-300 networked hardwired, AD-400 networked wireless locks and WPR-400 wireless portable readers can be quickly and easily upgraded in the field to FIPS compliant solutions. This provides a migration path for the current install base,” adds Furlong.

Listings for the AD-201, AD-301, AD-401 and FMK reader module are available on the IDmanagement website or FIPS 201-1 Evaluation Program Approved Products List.
