DATASHEET KXC-LE

Overview

The Kentix DoorLock-LE is a battery operated electronic door handle with radio. The lever handle is designed for installation in building doors and for opening locks. Depending on the product variant, the lever handle can be used indoors and outdoors. The electronics are fully integrated in the handle. RFID transponder carriers with MIFARE®Classic or MIFARE®DESFire® can be used as keys.

The electronic door handle 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-LE 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.

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. Slide the enclosed battery (type CR123) into the handle or insert it into the battery holder and place the cover on the pusher.
  2. Screw the pusher with the supplied Allen key.

To loosen the cover: turn the screw inwards until the cover can be removed.
To fix the cover: unscrew the screw with the cover in a suitable position.

Set up service key

  1. Hold the service key (yellow) in front of the pusher for approx. 1 second to activate.
  2. Hold the service key again just in front of the pusher. 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.

Installation

Mounting the square pin

Push the square (3) completely onto the retaining pin of the door handle (1) and into the square receptacle.

Insert the coiled spring pin (2) into the square and press it into the square with pliers until the pin is flush with the square. The square is now firmly connected to the door handle.

Put on square

Insert the square spindle of the electronic door handle into the square spindle of the lock.

Mark drill holes

Place the enclosed drilling template on the square, align it horizontally and punch the hole markings.

Drilling

Pull out the square pin again and drill holes with a diameter of 8 – 8.5 mm at the marked points.

Do not drill into or through the lock case!

Assemble electric handle

Re-insert the square spindle of the electronic door handle into the square spindle of the lock. Attach the lever handle holder of the mechanical door lever handle from the other side and screw it to the electronic door lever handle through the door leaf using the fastening screws.

The enclosed screws are designed for doors with greater door thickness. Before screwing, be sure to check whether the screws need to be shortened so as not to damage the rosettes!

Assemble mechanical pusher

Place the mechanical door handle in the horizontal position. With the door handle pointing to the right, tighten the rosette to the left, guide it over the handle mount and engage the bayonet catch.

Accordingly, for door handles pointing to the left, tighten the rosette to the right.

Fix mechanical pusher

Screw in the locking screw on the underside of the rosette and tighten it firmly.

Check functionality

With the door open, check the functionality and ease of movement of the handle. To do this, hold an authorized key in front of the reader.

In the engaged state, the latch of the lock must be completely immersed in the lock case when the latch is pressed down.

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.

Table battery warning

Battery change

Use the supplied Allen key to countersink the screw on the inside of the door handle.

Pull off the handle sleeve.

Remove the used battery and insert a new one, paying attention to the polarity. The negative pole of the battery points in the direction of the handle sleeve. When inserting the battery, the DoorLock must be in the horizontal home position.

Push the handle sleeve back on.

In order to guarantee the IP66 protection class of the DoorLock-LE for outdoor use, the seals, consisting of a large sealing ring and a grub screw with sealing ring, must always be replaced each time the handle is opened.

Maintenance

Maintenance and care of the door handles 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
