The reference standard of Europrofile cylinder foresees various parameters, including "Key Security", "Drilling resistance", and "Cyclic Test". For each of these parameters ALL Champions® cylinders are by far higher than the limits imposed by the standard. In addition to the "standard" parameters, Champions® are also VOLUNTARILY certified as resistant to Bumping and Picking at the highest levels of resistance, by ICIM institute.
The two most common manipulation techniques used on Europrofile cylinders. Bumping is based on the use of a flexible hammer that, used skilfully, causes the forced alignment of the pins and the consequent unlocking of the cylinder. Picking is the technique of decoding the key code by using picks or specific tools. All Champions® are certified as RESISTANT to Bumping and Picking to the highest levels established by the VOLUNTARY reference standard, by ICIM institute.
Coding is protected against manipulation based on "tracing" or "impression" techniques. The side "aligned", upper and shaped profile controls on the keys of the various Champions® are designed in such a way that, in the event of counterfeit key, the counter-pins are "trapped" preventing the rotation of the key and the plug, irreversibly blocking the extraction of the said key or picking tool.
The shaped profile controls on Champions® Pro, Modular, C28Plus and C39 keys, are a unique technological innovation, patented by Mottura.
The particular shape of the upper profile controls, which reproduces the mathematical signs, protects the code of the keys, thanks to a large combination of positions within the various signs, making the decoding of the key extremely difficult.
The extendible modules of Champions® Modular enable to fit, with great flexibility, any door thickness, up to a maximum of 130 mm size, (61-71). Cylinders of any type can be composed as: key/key and frictioned key;
key/adjustable knob; half cylinder.
The digital configurator and the "Start-up" Kit to configure a minimum of two cylinders are the available tools for the installer.
Champions® C28 Plus and C48 keys have a patented mobile element, which interacts with a special pin that permits the rotation of the key. The relative "blanks", managed and controlled at source by Mottura, are distributed exclusively to Authorized Mottura Club Centres. The controlled distribuition of “blanks” and the key duplication allowed at Mottura Clubs only, are therefore the best safeguard against illegal duplication.
The magnetic pin, which interfaces with the magnet plate on the key of Champions® C39, greatly increases the security against the fraudulent decoding. In the rest position the pin is "hidden" in the cylinder body, and difficult to detect with picks. When the key is inserted, it is drawn into the correct position by the magnet plate in such a way as to enable the rotation of the plug and the subsequent unlocking and locking.
The desmodromic track of the Champions® C43 PLUS and C48 keys originates its name from the two Greek words "desmos" and "dromikós" that mean: "forcing the path". In fact, it controls the operation of the cylinder's coaxial pins along each free level of the track. Or rather: the pins are aligned during the introduction of the key, in order to find the correct position that allows the insertion and rotation of the key, within millions of possible combinations.
The MM profile characterizes the section of all Champions® keys with a mirror-like MM design that recalls the MOTTURA brand. Recognizable on sight, it uniquely identifies the Champions® key among all those present on the market. The actual shape of the key thereby constitutes a further protection against illegal duplication, since the production and distribution of "blanks" through Mottura authorized dealers and Mottura Club authorized Centres is traceable and controlled.
Champions® Pro and Modular “blank” keys are controlled and distribuited only to Authorized centres that have signed the related sales contract. Therefore the duplication is possible with original "blanks" . To guarantee more protection, the owner’s card that comes with each set of keys must be presented. Mottura Clubs can also fully duplicate Pro and Modular keys.
Key duplication of Champions® C28PLUS, C39, C43PLUS is carried out at authorised Mottura Club centres only, presenting the owner's card and the original key. The card is the only document certifying the legal possession of the keys and protects the owner against illegal duplication. By contract it must be exhibited when requesting duplicates and must be guarded with the utmost care. Additional duplicates of the card are not issued.
Key duplication of Champions® C48 is carried out directly in the factory, upon request to a Mottura Club Centre that sends the card to the factory. The duplicates and the card are then sent back to the Mottura Club Centre to be delivered to the applicant. Therefore, the control of key duplication is highly monitored, since all further duplicated keys are tracked.
