Cannon Safe Introduces Hybrid Electronic-Mechanical EMP Lock

by Max Slowik,  |  published on April 5, 2013

Cannon Safe has been working on a new type of hybrid mechanical-electronic lock, called the EMP Lock, which is going to be standard on their Armory, Cannon and Commander safes from here on out.

The EMP lock uses both an electronic number pad for fast access, and in the case of battery failure, falls back on a mechanical combination lock. These large safes typically don’t have fast-access locks, which makes them less of a go-to solution and more a long-term storage that’s hard to steal from solution. Cannon’s changed that.

Plus the EMP Lock ensures that in the case of a nuclear disaster, you can still get access to your valuables. No, seriously, that’s why it’s called the EMP Lock.

“One of the more arcane threats to anything electronic or electrical is an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by nuclear detonation, or by certain non-nuclear events. In addition, floods, storm surges and other natural threats can disable an electronic locking device.

“The formidable Commander series, the trademark Cannon Series and the massive Armory Series safes will be equipped with Cannon’s new EMP Dual-Access Lock that provides a manual combination lock as backup to the electronic lock. Threat met, threat neutralized.”

Granted, floods and storms are way more likely to affect your safe than an EMP, but hey, good to know you can still get it open after the outbreak of World War III.
