Strong and clever: The new EMZY

News | 08. September 2022.
EVVA's new electronic motorised cylinder is more convenient and stronger than ever before.

The electronic motorised cylinder (EMZY) was introduced to the market by EVVA back in 1992, with the objective of ensuring that designated outside and inside doors leading to sensitive areas are locked and unlocked automatically from a certain time of day onwards. “However, EMZY has developed a great deal since then. Over the years, its functions have become smarter and more user-friendly and its shape has been adapted. The torque, for example, has become more and more powerful,” explains Martin Bauer, EMZY Commercial Product Manager at EVVA. Mr Bauer is responsible for the relaunch of EMZY, a successful security product that has already been tried and tested for decades.

Even stronger, even more convenient – simply better

EMZY is currently being completely redeveloped and the new version will soon be available. “Controlled locking and release. Remote opening. Many motorised cylinders are able to do this. What sets EMZY by EVVA apart is its adaptive torque system. This means that EMZY uses only as much force as absolutely necessary. This protects doors and locks, ensuring EMZY and the lock have a very long service life” says Bauer. “The new EMZY can adaptively regulate the torque, allowing it to securely lock and unlock even under a wide variety of difficult conditions, such as incorrectly set contact pressure, heavy, warped doors or doors with multiple sealing planes.”

The new commissioning app makes many things a lot easier: for example, by learning the lock and door parameters and adjusting the torque accordingly. The new EMZY app offers a choice of two office modes and a selection of visual signals that appear on the thumbturn button. In addition, existing configurations can be transferred to each new EMZY thumbturn and various alarm states can be set. The step-by-step guide provides detailed instructions and prevents incorrect installation. 

Versatile application options

The motorised cylinder is fastened to the inside of the door and is operated from the outside as required via RFID access media, biometrics or by entering a code. The door is unlocked from the inside using the EMZY button. It can be easily connected to third-party systems, such as fire and alarm systems as well as building management and evacuation systems via the EMZY interface (I/O box). “Of course it also can be combined with EVVA’s Xesar and AirKey systems.” The EMZY is simple to mount and is therefore also well suited for retrofitting in surface or flush mounted installations.

EMZY. Everybody’s darling

The new EMZY is adaptive. EMZY adapts to electronic third-party systems, to EVVA electronic and mechanical systems, to different profile types and to any locking process thanks to its adaptive torque. "EMZY is at home in every profile," Bauer enthuses. Whether oval, round or European profile, EMZY requires only a standard EVVA thumbturn axis. It adapts easily to any profile when equipped with the supplied attachments. 

EMZY for every type of door

Our motorised cylinder is available in 6 colours. It therefore adapts perfectly to any room design. It offers convenience at the highest level through remote opening, for example by being additionally connected to an external push-button. This is not only very useful for supplier entrances, but also secure. 

And one more interesting aspect: in the event of a burglary, the insurance company will only potentially cover the costs of damage if the cylinder was also securely locked. Fortunately, the new EMZY does this automatically for you.
