Magnetic Encoding

Magnetic Encoding

CISM has developed a unique and patented technology in the world: magnetic encoding.

The strength, power, and robustness of magnetic fields are the key features of our innovative and unique concept. We have learned to understand, control, and exploit these magnetic fields to their full potential to create a unique mechanism for security: magnetic encoding. Patented in 2005, it is now used in all of our locks and security solutions.

Magnets are known for their reliability and are used in a wide range of industries, including medical, automotive, rail, and aerospace. At CISM, we have chosen to use them to help secure your equipment.

So how does it work?

You are more familiar with magnetic fields than you may think – the Earth itself has a giant one! In fact, the core of our planet behaves like a giant magnet, which is what allows a compass needle to orient itself. Magnets create magnetic fields and have two poles: North and South. Opposite poles attract each other, while the same poles repel each other – it’s that simple.

CISM’s concept was developed by playing with the characteristics of magnets. Channeling magnetic fields gives us a powerful technology for effective security. We have incorporated this process into our locks. Without a keyhole and without a power source, they work only with the combination of several magnets with different forces and polarities, which create unique magnetic codes that are infinite in number.

So what is it for and who is it for?

As you can see, magnets are at the heart of CISM’s technology. The static magnets in our keys allow the mobile magnets in our locks to unlock the opening mechanism. This is a unique and revolutionary concept that has proven its worth with many companies in a variety of fields (public lighting, vending machines, etc.).

Our expertise is for professionals who want to secure their equipment against theft, vandalism, and attempted break-ins. Our products are particularly robust and cannot be picked.

A unique technology, at your service!
