To operate the E-Plex® 2000 with PowerStar,™ you simply turn the lever to power-up the electronics, and then enter your valid access code. Turn the lever again to gain access.

Because there are no batteries to replace that would eventually end up in landfills, the E-Plex® 2000 Series with PowerStar™ technology is a "greener" choice than other electronic options.  Also, since there is no external wiring, installation is easy and reliable over time.

The E-Plex® 2000 with PowerStar™  will be available in Cylindrical, Mortise and Exit trim(s). Up to 100 user codes can be enrolled into the lock at any given time. Other programmable features include, passage, lockout, tamper shutdown, and service codes.
