NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, April 11, 2012 — Sargent Manufacturing Company, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, today announced that its Passport 1000 P1 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Lock won the Green Solutions Award in the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) 2012 New Products Showcase (NPS) at ISC West. The P1 is an integrated lock that re-uses existing network infrastructure to connect to the access control system completely eliminating the need for any additional access control wiring or components. The IP-enabled lock also leverages an existing Local Area Network (LAN) for both power and data, eliminating the need for any additional power supply or electrical wiring.
“We are honored that our SARGENT Passport 1000 P1 lock has been recognized with the first ever NPS Green Solutions Award from the SIA,” said Aaron Smith, director of sustainable building solutions, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “The P1 exemplifies our commitment to creating a new generation of energy-efficient, sustainable access control products and to supporting green building technologies. When the total Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of a PoE system is considered, the result is less energy and material used during manufacturing, shipping, installation and use. The P1 is a best in class solution for the high performance demanded by today’s green and energy efficient buildings.”
The P1’s use of a facility’s existing IEEE 802.3af PoE infrastructure streamlines the installation process, reduces costs and components, enables real-time communication and minimizes power consumption. With a maximum power consumption of 7 watts per activation at each lock, the P1 uses 50% less power than traditional access control solutions using PoE. It also uses significantly less power in standby than traditional access control. Across the hundreds of locks used within a building and over several years, this has a tremendous impact on overall power consumption. In addition, the P1 is now available with the enhanced security of HID® iCLASS® 13.56 MHz smart card technology. The SARGENT Passport 1000 P1 is available in a variety of configurations and finishes.
