Medeco XT Introduction

Medeco XT is a Medeco® eCylinder technology platform that comprises many different retrofit cylinder formats including the popular Small Format Interchangeable Core (SFIC).  Medeco XT cylinders are a direct replacement for mechanical cylinders and are ideal for enhanced loss and liability management.  The cylinder is powered by the rechargeable key; the cylinder needs no wiring or additional supply of power.  The small sleek design of the key and the powerful cylinder are ideal for anything from interior cabinets to harsh exterior environments. 

The Medeco XT Web Manager software is a web based application that allows simple and flexible access management and the ability to audit both keys and cylinders.  Medeco XT is an ideal combination of security, flexibility, and system management (key control and accountability), and quickly and easily retrofits into existing hardware.

The programming station connects to the host computer using a standard USB cable.  In addition to docking keys for programming, the programming station also charges the battery in the key. 

Key Charger

The Medeco XT charger is used to recharge the battery in the key.  The key charger is for charging only.
