What’s passive electronic lock?

What is a passive electronic lock?

The term “passive” in passive electronic locks signifies the absence of a power source or battery. They share a visual resemblance with traditional mechanical locks. Just like electronic deadbolts, they serve as a straightforward replacement for mechanical locks. However, what sets passive electronic locks apart is their lack of need for wiring, making them a hassle-free and effortless installation option.

The passive electronic lock incorporates a compact single-chip microcomputer. It lacks a traditional mechanical keyhole and instead features only two or three metal contacts. To unlock, the user inserts the electronic key into the lock’s keyhole, aligning the three contacts on the key with the corresponding contacts on the lock. The key, equipped with a built-in battery, supplies power to the lock and reads the ID number of the passive electronic lock for verification. Once verification is successful, the key activates the coil within the lock. The coil generates a magnetic field, which in turn moves the magnet within the lock, ultimately unlocking it. Rotating the key initiates the mechanical mechanism within the lock to release the lock body. Following a successful unlock, the key records the lock’s ID number and the time of the lock’s opening. It’s important to note that passive electronic locks can only be unlocked by keys with proper authorization, and any attempt to unlock without the necessary authority will result in a failed attempt.
