In the development of Kiekert products, the safety of vehicle occupants is always the top priority. This applies in particular to an electrified locking system that takes into account an accidental power failure. The excellENTRY technology basically offers two types of redundancy to ensure reliable opening and closing even in the event of a power failure. Mechanical redundancy relies on a mechanical chain back to the handle that is still present but significantly reduced, even allowing for a better opening lever in the event of an accident. The electrical redundancy through batteries or capacitors rely on energy sources independent of the on-board voltage. In this variant, the mechanical scope of the locking system is reduced to a minimum. With this approach, Kiekert’s excellENTRY is particularly flexible and can serve a wide range of automotive manufacturers’ requirements.
