The DK-16 is a version of Securitrons DK-26 digital keypad system that has changed from the narrow unit standard to an indoor single gang type. It is secure, easy to program single door control system; however, it provides a medium/ high-security control of electric locks in a one or two door application where both of the doors would have the same control needs.
There is only one model for the DK-16 besides its standard issue, which comes with a keypad and controller. The other model is the DK-16P which comes with only the keypad. Like the DK-12, it has the accessories to make it weather proof, with the WBB (Weather Back Box) and the WCC (Weather Cover – Clear).
It’s tamper resistant and provides a 12 key 3x4 keypad with a 10-key operation for use and programming. It’s encased in a separate enclosure for secure installation; it is designed for high volume indoor use in controlling entry through electrically locked doors. The electrical specifications are 12 VAC/VDC: 7 mA at rest; 160 mA active or 24 VAC/VDC: 20 mA at rest; 190 mA active. The controller offers REX input and relay output for lock control, alarm shunt or other interfaces.
Two wall boxes are supplied with the DK-16, a backless wall box which is used for dry wall or other material that can be cut. The second is a two-piece wall box for a variety of other materials. At a temperature of +32 to +158F [0 to +70C] for CPU and +32 to +110F [0 to +43C], the keypad works best indoors. However, this too has the optional rain cover (WCC) or a gasket back box (WBB) to allow reliable use for the outdoors. It is not advised to be used in areas exposed to heavy direct rain or snow.
