Door knob (radio) Door-Lock-DC-PRO – MANUAL

DATASHEET KXC-KN4

Overview

The Kentix DoorLock-DC-PRO is a compact battery-operated electronic knob cylinder with radio. The knob cylinder is designed for locking and unlocking locks in building doors. Depending on the product variant, the knob cylinder can be used indoors and outdoors. Both variants have resistance class 2 according to DIN 18252. RFID transponder carriers with MIFARE®Classic or MIFARE®DESFire® can be used as keys.

The electronic knob cylinder is networked by radio with an AccessManager radio. Up to 16 DoorLock radio components can be taught into one AccessManager radio. The configuration is done via the integrated web server of the main device (operating mode: Main-Device).

The DoorLock-DC-PRO is available in two wireless technologies, namely BLE 2.4GHz and 868MHz. DoorLock components with different radio frequencies cannot be operated on one AccessManager. AccessManagers with different radio technologies can be networked together.
When selecting radio components, make sure you use the right radio technology.
For new projects, we recommend BLE 2.4GHz as the radio technology.

System topology

An illustration of the SmartAccess system topology can be found here.

Mastercard set

Kentix master cards

The master card set is used to prepare the DoorLock devices with radio for operation. All IP wall readers that are connected via the SmartRelay are excluded. With the service key card, the radio components such as knobs, door handles or wall readers are integrated into the radio network and the communication is encrypted. Only one master card set is required per system or installation. We recommend using an extra set of master cards for each project.

Keep the system card with the system key imprinted on it in a safe place, ideally in a safe. This system card is necessary for reordering in case of loss or defect of a service card. In case of complete loss of the system card and service card, only a very costly recovery at the factory is possible!

Commissioning

We recommend commissioning before assembly.

Prepare device

  1. Place the magnet on the marked spot (round recess) of the knob shell
  2. Pull off knob casing and insert battery (type CR2)
  3. Push the knob casing onto the knob up to the rubber seal
  4. Place the magnet on the marking of the knob sleeve and push the sleeve on as far as it will go.

Set up service key

  1. Hold the service key (yellow) for approx. 1 second in front of the pusher to activate it.
  2. Hold the service key again briefly in front of the knob. The service key is now programmed

User and access management

The administration of users and access rights is done on the main device of the installation with KentixOne.

All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section.

Dimensions DoorLock KXC-KN4

The lengths A and B are different depending on the cylinder required. To find out which cylinder lengths to use, the following guide can be used: Correctly measure locking cylinder

Mounting

Only a few steps are required for the installation.

StepNote
Remove the faceplate screw and pull the existing cylinder out of the door.Each Kentix profile cylinder comes with a new forend screw.
Insert the Kentix profile cylinder into the door. Then insert and tighten the forend screw.The electronic rotary knob is already attached to the profile cylinder. Therefore, insert the profile cylinder into the guide from the outside of the door.
The mechanical knob is placed on the end of the cylinder housing
and secured with the grub screw.
Care must be taken to ensure that
Both the axis of rotation and the pommel seat have a flattened surface.
both of which must be flush with each other.
The installation is completed. If not already done, the knob can now be programmed with the card set.Programming of the master card set in the knob should already be done before installation on the door.
Installation steps
DoorLock PRO mounting cylinder

Insert the cylinder housing together with the electronic knob into the lock
introduce Hand-tighten the forend screw, do not use a cordless screwdriver with
use high torque.

DoorLock PRO mounting knob

The mechanical knob is placed on the end of the cylinder housing
and secured with the grub screw. Care must be taken to ensure that
Both the axis of rotation and the pommel seat have a flattened surface.
both of which must be flush with each other.

The cylinder must not protrude more than 1 to 3 mm from the fitting or protective fitting that closely surrounds it. However, this must not be installed recessed in the fitting. It should also be noted that the cylinder body is not braced in the door. For this purpose, after tightening the faceplate screw and before mounting the radio door knob, the free movement of all components should be checked.

If the radio door knob and cylinder were not supplied assembled, one or two drops of a resin-free oil (ORDER-CODE: KXC-PLS50M) must be added to the cylinder body during initial installation before mounting the knob module. It must not be sprayed directly into the cylinder body with the spray can.

During installation, no external forces may act on the radio door knob and/or the cylinder body.

Battery warning

When the power of the batteries decreases, audible and visual warnings are generated by the device. This happens with decreasing battery power in 3 phases, during which, in addition to the warnings, the function of the device is limited. This is done in order to conserve the batteries as much as possible in the final stages and to allow them to be changed.

PhaseSignalingFunctionUrgency

Table battery warning

Battery change

Place the battery replacement tool on the marked spot of the knob casing.

With the battery replacement tool in place, pull off the knob casing.

Remove the used battery and insert a new one, paying attention to the polarity.

Push the knob casing onto the knob as far as it will go so that the marked point on the knob casing is aligned with the protruding plastic part on the knob.

The knob casing must be pushed on so far that only the rubber seal is visible. If this is not the case, hold the knob and turn the knob sleeve slightly back and forth on the knob until the knob sleeve can be pushed on up to the rubber ring.

Place the battery replacement tool on the marking of the knob casing and push it together onto the knob as far as it will go. Then remove the battery replacement tool from the knob shell and test that it is firmly seated on the knob by pulling on the knob shell.


Maintenance

Maintenance and care of the cylinders or the entire lock should be performed at least once a year (more often in case of heavy use). Care must be taken to ensure that all door components move smoothly.

For maintenance, do not use contact or cleaning sprays such as WD40
