Very similar to the DK-16, the DK-26 is a secure, keypad designed for medium/ high-security control of electric locks. Used in one or two door applications where doors have the same control needs. What is different is that it has two components: the keypad and the CPU board, both are connected by a 16 ft. cable. It may be mounted outdoors in any environment as it is fully weatherproof. It operates at a temperature of +32 to +158F [0 to +70C] for CPU and -22 to +158F [-30 to +70C] for the keypad when using it for indoors or outdoors.
It features a true 10 digit operation, 3 LEDs and a beeper that has an audible keystroke echo, and it is easy to program. The keypad is 5 lbs. (2.27kg) 1-1/2"W x 7"H x 7/8"D and the enclosure’s size is 6"W x 8"H x 3"D which makes it easy to install in smaller places.
