Mortise and Rim Cylinders

1E SERIES – FEATURES

1E Mortise Cylinder

Standard mortise applications require use of BEST’s 1E series cylinders with standard 1E-C4 cam. BEST cylinders may be altered to function with other manufacturers' locks by use of different cams (see page 8) and different cylinder rings (see page 9). Special cylinder variations are available for most applications (see pages 4 & 5). BEST cylinders are machined from brass or bronze bar stock and are available in a variety of finishes. Additional security is provided by a set screw that mounts diagonally in the cylinder wall and when tightened, holds the cylinder securely in the housing. BEST mortise cylinders feature the BEST interchangeable core and may be masterkeyed into any existing BEST system. Contact your local Stanley Security Solutions sales office for information on special cylinder applications not listed in this catalog.

MX8 – PATENTED KEYING SYSTEM MX8 – PATENTED KEYING SYSTEM

One of the greatest threats to key control within your facility is the unauthorized duplication of keys; one simple solution is the use of the MX8 Patented Keying System by Stanley-Best Access Systems a patent-protected keying system.

Very seldom can a single product meet all of your exact needs, and often your level of convenience must be sacrificed to fit the capabilities of the product.The MX8 Patented Keying System provides you with an significant amount of flexibility, enabling a solution that fits your unique balance between security and convenience.

The MX8 Patented Keying System is available in two series of keyways, the M Series and the X Series. Each series offers a different blend of features to help you maximize convenience while optimizing your security.

The MX8 Patented Keying System has the ability to provide geographic exclusivity to the customer.

 

M Series Keyway Features

  • Patented keys operate both MX8 and Standard BEST cores (backward compatibility) with existing BEST keyways (JKLM only). Standard keys do not operate MX8 cores.
  • Available in large bow, long blade, and long nose key blanks to work with special applications.
  • Available in core designs for use in special application locks, such as high security mortise, hotel cylinders, and glass display-case locks.
  • Utilizes the same combinating kits and key cutting equipment as the Standard BEST keyways.
  • M Series keys operate MX8 cores and Standard (non-patented) BEST cores. Standard key blanks do not operate MX8 cores.

 

X Series Keyway Features

  • Distinctive key design includes thicker key blanks with larger bow for added strength and easier handling.
  • Keyways are unique to MX8 Patented Keying System offering even higher key duplication protection.
  • Requires only minor modifications to key cutting equipment to accommodate new keyways. X Series keyways utilize the standard combinating kit, minimizing the expense of system changeover.
  • X Series keys only operate MX8 cores.

EUROCYLINDERS

SPECIAL EUROPROFILES
Mortise locksets from a number of different international manufacturers can be incorporated into your BEST masterkeyed system by replacing the cylinder with a Best Eurocylinder and 3C European interchangeable core. When ordering, please specify the lock manufacturer’s name and their model number. Some Euro profile cylinders will accept Best standard core rather than the 3C core. Please specify the “E” option when ordering standard cores for use in Eurocylinders.

The most popular of the European adaptations is for the Europe an cylinder. Best Access Systems order nomenclature and several required critical dimensions are listed below. Please specify, as requested when ordering.

 

Critical Dimensions - Europrofile

“A”– Dimension to center of lockset case. Determined by measuring from set screw location to outside of door face.

“B”– Door thickness.

“C”– Dimension from center of key rotation to center of handle rotation, if other than 72mm. Maximum allowed– 114mm. Minimum allowed– 37mm

CYLINDERS AND CAMS

Special cams are available which will operate most mortise locksets, regardless of make or function. With these cams,your masterkeyed system can be extended through the use of replacement cylinders with cams similar to those being used. A few of the cams are illustrated. Other designs are available upon request. All cams available are designed for use on BEST mortise cylinders.

WARNING– Best Access Systems desires to provide up-to-date and reliable product adaptation uses. However, BEST cannot guarantee the quality of other manufacturers' locksets. In addition, other lock manufacturers' may make changes to their product that affect the operation and compatibility of our core and cylinder adaptation. When this occurs, those manufacturers' have no obligation to notify BEST. If you are using a BEST cylinder in another manufacturers' lockset and find that it does not operate properly for any reason, please contact your local BEST sales office immediately.

How To Order

Refer To The Following Procedure When Ordering See Order Example At Bottom Of Next Page.

- Cam Motion and Degree of Rotation

When ordering 5E cylinders, specify the cam motion type and degree of rotation. Available cam motion types are listed below. Different type motions are limited to different degrees of key rotations.

Type A– Direct motion - Key and cam rotation is direct. Key may be removed in locked position only. Motion is 360 degrees right or left.

Type B– Limited motion - Key and cam rotation is direct. Key may be removed in locked position only. Motion is limited to 90 degrees or 180 degrees right or left.

Type C– Lost motion. Cam rotates 90 degrees right or left. Key rotates 360 degrees. Key removal with cam in locked or unlocked position.

Type D– Throw member drive - Key and drive motion is direct. Key may be removed in locked position only. Motion is 360 degrees right or left.

 

- Determine Ring Length

A spacer collar may be required to position the cam for proper lock operation. The spacer collar is installed between the 5E cylinder head and the mounting surface. To determine the proper length of the spacer collar, add together: the desired distance from the cam to the inside of the mounting surface (“A” above) to the measured thickness of the mounting surface (“B” above). Then, subtract this total from: 31⁄32" when installing a 5E6, or 1 1⁄8" when installing a 5E7. The remainder is the collar length, which is illustrated.

To properly order spacer collars, designate the following nomenclature for the length desired:

5E Spacer Collar Length Chart

 

- Select Proper Cam Type

Cam

Cams for 5E cylinders are available with a number of variations to suit the particular application as required. Two major variations that must be designated on the order are: A.) The cam type, and B.) The cam length.

Cam Types

The following cam types are available for the Best 5E cylinder. Other designs are available upon request. (See page 8)

Cam Types Defined (Listed relative to motion/rotation)

C1– Straight cam mounted for fixed motion operation (used in conjunction with type “A” and type “B” motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C1 and length from code chart at option D.

C3– Straight cam mounted for lost motion operation (used in conjunction with type “C” cam motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C3 and length from code chart at option D.

2A– Offset cam (inward mount) for lost motion operation (used in conjunction with type “A” and type “B” motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C2A and length from code chart at option D.

2B– Offset cam (outward mount) for fixed motion operation (used in conjunction with type “A” and type “B” motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C2B and length from code chart at option D.

4A– Offset cam (inward mount) for fixed motion operation (used in conjunction with type “C” cam motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C4A and length from code chart at option D.

4B– Offset cam (outward mount) for lost motion operation (used in conjunction with type “C” cam motions). To order cam separately, designate 5E-C4B and length from code chart at option D.

D– Direct throw member drive and tailpiece. Throw pins engage cylinder to flat spindle tailpiece. The standard flat spindle tailpiece is 1 1⁄16" and may be cut to length desired. To order spindle separately, designate 5E-D.

 

- Determine Cam Length

Cam length is determined by measuring from center of the cam rotation to the tip of the cam.

 

- Cam Mounting Position and Cam Direction

 

Direct Throw Member Drive and Tailpiece

Cams may be mounted in one of four "clock” positions as pictured below. Designate cam mounting and rotation direction (right-“R” left-“L”). Key is only removable in the locked position, unless ordering type C. (Available in locked and unlocked positions.)
