OMEGA FLEX with LEGIC Transponder

CEStronics integrates the new LEGIC advant technology in its OMEGA FLEX product family

Efficient access management with OMEGA FLEX

Mechatronic locking systems are becoming more and more attractive for security experts. CEStronics, for many years system partner of LEGIC Identsystems AG, has now extended its portfolio by a new solution for efficient access management. After the successful launch of the OMEGA FLEX line, the Velbert-based experts for electronic access solutions now also offer system components incorporating the new LEGIC advant technology. This means that the users can combine the benefits of wireless electronic cylinders with the latest version of the LEGIC transponders – optionally with online management via radio and over the IT network.

Cylinder solutions for every door situation

“The OMEGA FLEX product family has been designed to allow wireless cylinder solutions and individual programming for every door situation, tailored to the user’s demands”, says Friedhelm Ulm, Product Manager with CEStronics GmbH. “Thanks to the combination with the new-generation transponders, LEGIC users can now also manage locking authorizations conveniently via the RF network.” The prime benefit is cost-efficiency: the installation does not require cumbersome wiring work at the door, and thanks to an energy-efficient battery operation, the power consumption is low.
Another benefit for the users is that the system can be easily extended – from the basic offline operation to time- and user-specific access management through to multiple applications of the transponders e.g. for the settlement of staff restaurant charges or time recording. In all variants, convenience and security come first. If a locking medium is lost, it is disabled in the system and can be replaced by a new one if necessary.

Easy upgrade from LEGIC prime to LEGIC advant

For users who have been relying on LEGIC for a long time, OMEGA FLEX offers another value added: the gradual migration capability of the products. The user can easily upgrade from the predecessor LEGIC prime to LEGIC advant without having to replace or convert the locking devices. Thanks to Safe ID and optimized encryption processes, the new transponder generation excels by even higher security standards. At the same time, legacy data standards retain their validity in the access control system. Products of the OMEGA FLEX LEGIC series are not only ISO 15693 and LEGIC prime compliant but also compatible with ISO 14443 A. This means that also locking media like Mifare Classic and DESFire EV1 can be used.
“When developing this product line, we paid much attention to offering an additional value without forcing our customers to revamp all of their existing equipment”, explains Friedhelm Ulm. “And with the integration of LEGIC advant into the OMEGA FLEX series we are continuing on that path – offering high-tech locking systems that combine efficient access management with a high level of convenience for the user.”
