Here you can see many of the pages from Key Trax II, giving you a feel
for how the software works. To download the demo version click here.
|Key Trax II has a usable keys calculator so before you commit to a
specific Master Key you can see how many patterns per page will be
usable, or within the Safety Factor.
You can also change to IC
core as this example shows. The control key allows you to remove
the core in these systems, the cuts do not affect the Change or Master
keys as the Core Key uses a different shear line than the pinning.
Key Trax II will calculate all the pins for the cylinders properly.
Choosing Angled Cut provides for the lettering for F B L R / \ or
anything you wish to use.
||Key Trax IIs' Main screen is much like the original but with a few
additional features. First you can designate the Keyway used on a
key. There are many systems out there with Master Key Patterns,
where a Certain Keyway will work in all keyways, but there are levels of
Keyways that are increasingly restrictive, This allows one to rekey due
to a lost key by changing the keyway, but not the pinning. The
Master Keyway will work all cylinders.
Next you can see that there is the ability to print the current page,
you are given the option of printing the entire page pinning charts as
||Just like Key Trax, Key Trax II shows you the relationships of the
currently selected cell to the other patterns on the page. The Red
Key icon is the currently selected cell and the other cells are Grey (No
Relation) or Green (Master). Those cells that have a label
assigned show as cut keys and the cells with the Blue line over them
have unsafe cuts.
Where a pattern functions on multiple pages, the
Label you give the pattern is carried through to the other pages.
This only occurs on the Master Keys above the Page Master.
The lists on the left side of the page expand when used providing more
||The lists here have all been activated, while open if you click on a
result, Key Trax II will take you to the form to edit that record.
Here the Cursor is hovering over the Area Master HK10, as you can see
Key Trax II shows you the full detail (If you have the permissions to
view cuts) this allows you to quickly see the details of any cell
without having to actually select it. This is handy when designing
a new system. Also up is the Cell Icon Legend. This shows
the meaning of each icon, the cut key indicates that the cell has been
assigned a label. The empty cell indicates that there is no Label
||Another new option for Key Trax II is the enlarged page view.
As the monitors for computers increased in quality, the standard image
has gotten smaller, so in the upper right corner of the key patterns
page is a button for enlargement. The affects of selection and
changing information are still fully functional. The button face
changes indicating the effect it will have when clicked.
shows a six pin design, a seven pin design would show one more cell
above the current Grand Master, when that occurs, the Top Master is
called the Theoretical Master.
|The door assignment page has likewise been expanded with the
industrial locksmith in mind.
The Keyed box auto records the date it is checked.
Not only can you provide a Label, Location and Description, you can also
record the details of the hardware on a particular door. When you
are covering buildings that have footprints in the multiple acres, and
are twenty, thirty or more floors higher, you want to know that you will
only need to make one trip to a door to fix a problem. As you add
your hardware, Key Trax II will tell you how many of each type is used.
As well, there is an area to provide additional hardware information.
Also you can mark when a door is keyed, and if you cross-key, Key Trax
II will calculate the phantoms created by doing so.
|Here you can see the Mapping feature of Key Trax II.
How often do you need to send a new employee to a location that is
difficult to find, Once you have recorded the mapping into your system
you can easily show them on the map where the lock is, and using the
information on the Doors page, you only need send them once, with the
correct hardware and tools in hand for whatever is expected. Once
you click on the map and then click Save to Door, Key Trax II will
automatically load the map and center on the door you marked. You
can also change the color of the mark and assign your own information to
the color. This comes in handy where companies have opted into
electronic hardware, not only can you indicate the location but you can
indicate that there is something special as well by using yellow for
electric hardware. To the left side you can see a group of icons
for manipulating multiple floor maps, as you add floors, you can link
them to the map below, thus allowing you to move up and down floors in a
single click, while still maintaining the current position on the map.
|Here is the Pinning chart from an IC core designed system. The
standard Pinning only shows two rows of pins.
This can be printed if
needed. Be careful when choosing to change the colors of your windows
environment, I have had people who made the text invisible by choosing
the same fore and back colors. Should you find you can't see
something, try changing the fore color of windows.
||There are a number of reports that you can print in Key Trax II.
The complete system will produce a standardized printout of the Master
Each of the reports allow you to select the amount of
information you want to print. The complete system offers to print
out the Masters Pages as well
Doors by Department allows you to choose which Departments, By Key
allows you to choose which keys, even Master Keys, which will show the
master and then every change key that particular master can open.
Unkeyed Doors is based on you checking the box on the Door Record.
||Assigning keys to users is simple and quick, simply bring up the key
you are assigning, Indicate to the application that you wish to issue
new units and you can issue a single key, or a range of keys. Here
I have created 12 units for the AA06 key, now I can bring up the user
list, and select the user that will be receiving the key and double
click the unit number to issue.
Keys can be returned, and they can be
lost, by marking them as lost or returned, you can track and avoid
reusing keys that have been lost in the past. Returned keys can of
course be reissued and lost keys can be found, but the records of those
transactions are retained for future reports.
||Here you can see that Key Trax II allows you to look up keys by
Label, Cuts, Serial Number or by Key ID.
The lower section allows you to look up the
keys issued to a particular individual, a particular department or by a
door. Here you can see the results for keys issued to Housekeeping.
