As we began design efforts for the new government specification, we recognized that it was the right time to deliver on our customers' request.
Lexington, KY (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
The Kaba Mas X-10, the only lock to meet U.S. Government Federal Specification FF-L-2740B, Style 1, is now available with a value-added product enhancement. Starting with serial number X10X001003252014ARM, all X-10 Series Locks will include a backlit LCD display. With this standard feature, users simply illuminate the combination window by turning the dial to power the lock. All X-10 Series Locks are self-powered and do not require batteries or other power sources. The X-10 generates its own power with every turn of the dial, eliminating the concern for scheduled maintenance or unexpected failure do to battery life.
The backlit display not only provides users with enough light to easily see the visual controls without creating security issues, it retains its original restricted viewing angle. "The initial X-10 electronic design included the backlit display," says Dennis Congdon, product manager, Kaba Mas. "Our Voice of the Customer feedback indicated that the addition of a backlit display would be beneficial for low-light areas. As we began design efforts for the new government specification, we recognized that it was the right time to deliver on our customers' request." The backlit display feature has been tested and approved by the GSA.
The X-10 Lock with the backlit display operates and installs the same as a non-backlit X-10 Lock. The price and part numbers remain the same for ease of ordering. The backlit display is not available for retrofit applications. In addition to the new feature, all X-10 and CDX-10 Locks manufactured as of March 25, 2014, with the backlit display, will have a limited two-year warranty.
