EVVA has upgraded its electronic access control system Xesar. "The EVVA developers have given Xesar 3.0 a total upgrade and equipped it with Service Pack 1,” said Erich Gärtner, Head of the Xesar Product Management department. With Service Pack 1, it is now even easier for EVVA partners and Xesar users to manage their facilities. It equips Xesar with a huge range of new features, while also making the system considerably more intuitive to use. User-friendly features "The new upgrades are all based on our principle of simple and intuitive operation. Our main objective was to make the new features as simple as possible for the user," according to Gärtner. One of the most important new features is, for example, that software updates can be run while the system is being serviced, saving time.Filter settings that need to be used repeatedly can be saved as presets in the user data The help messages are also new. They are displayed by clicking on question marks that are highlighted in yellow and can be hidden again with a click, without completing disappearing. They can answer questions about operating the device and explain particular input boxes, lists or fields. It is also now even easier to manage lists in the system: "For me, the filter preset function is one of the most user-friendly innovations," Gärtner said. Filter settings that need to be used repeatedly can be saved as presets in the user data. The number of presets is unlimited and they can be changed at any time. Automatic backups "There will now be automatic backups when you start and stop the system in the installation manager," Gärtner explained. You can specify a time for a backup to be performed every dayYou can, however, also specify a time for a backup to be performed every day or you can still run a backup manually. An automatic backup is performed before every update, which makes data loss almost impossible. It is especially easy to organise user groups. With Xesar 3.0, user groups can now be organised easily and can be customised according to your requirements. Existing user groups can be copied, altered and assigned either only read permission or full write permission. "All in all, top-notch service! The more than 25 other functions, which I could not list here, are proof of this," said Gärtner.
EVVA's electronic system range has been extended by the electronic cam lock. It can be integrated into any AirKey and Xesar system. "This means that EVVA's electronic product range is becoming even more versatile," Sabine Ribits, product manager at EVVA, explains. Be it for sensitive areas, such as pharmaceuticals cabinets, display cases with valuable contents at jewellers' or even lockers in sports facilities, letterboxes in residential developments or distributor cabinets – electronic cam locks are the ideal addition to a Xesar or AirKey access control system. Compliant with GDPR They are easy to install and even easier to manage in the software as they are integrated just like all other electronic components. Here at the EVVA head office in Vienna we provide the best example: we offer pickup lockers at the shipping department that are equipped with electronic cam locks. "As a result, EVVA Partners in Vienna can pick-up their goods 24/7 whenever it suits them and must no longer observe opening times," Ribits adds. Locking direction and cam lock designs are oriented to the EVVA mechanical locking systems" The new electronic cam lock can be flexibly adapted depending on the installation situation thanks to the shorter cylinder length. The fixed cam (FVS) is also a new feature. Here the thumb turn is blocked when the cam lock is disengaged. In addition, any locking operation as part of this function is logged in compliance with data protection regulations. Electronic cam lock "One key objective was to offer our partners an important product extension without complicated ordering processes. For this reason, locking direction and cam lock designs are oriented to the EVVA mechanical locking systems." All cams from our mechanical locking system range are also available for the electronic cam lock. They can be ordered and delivered in three variants with MB19, MB22 and MB27 thread diameters. Visitors are welcome to test the new cam lock at Security Essen between 25th and 28th September at the EVVA fair stand, hall 3, stand 3F69.
