The AW2H lock has passed the ANSI 156.25 lock standard, making it a true Grade 1 electronic mortise lock which is manufactured in their ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified factories in Japan

Guest Security

The AW2H lock case has a three piece 3/4 inch (19mm) latch, a hardened one inch (25.4mm) steel deadbolt and an anti-pick latch that prevents the lock case from being tampered with whilst the door is closed.

Power Supply

Though operating on only 2 AA alkaline batteries, the AW2H lock will function for around 1 year before the low battery warning is indicated.

Low Battery Warning

There is a visual warning when the batteries are running low, this is given to the staff cards, ensuring your guests are not inconvenienced.

Power Supply Terminal

In the unlikely event of the batteries running out completely, there is an external power supply connection, so that power can be directly supplied to the lock.

Infrared Programming

Using the standard infrared port, communication to the AW2H lock is fast and easy, both for programming and retrieving the audit data.

resin coated card reader

Audit Trail

Provides a record of the last 200 valid card entries as well as the last 100 error logs, so that you can track activity associated with the lock

Non-volatile Memory

Retains the data when batteries are removed, keeping your lock software and audit data safe.

Resin coated card reader

The one piece card reader has been designed for easy maintenance, this includes a dust shutter and the main board being coated with a layer of resin, ensuring a reliable operation for both your guests and staff.

K-series AW2H FDS (Front Desk System)



MIWA's Front Desk System is a versatile key control system. The system can encode magnetic cards, providing the flexibility to suit the needs of every property and guest, giving multiple guestcard types, as well as sophisticated master keying structures. Three encoders can be networked together using TCP/IP protocols.

Colour Screen

For ease of use, the FDS encoder has a colour screen display.

AW2H DCU (Door Control Unit/Elevator Control Unit) - Option



For applications where a standard AW2H lock is not suitable, such as a high usage common door, MIWA's Door Control Unit will provide the security needed.

The DCU can:

  • Operate magnetic locks, electrified panic bars, electric strikes or other locking devices
  • Work in conjunction with the control circuits of elevators, car park barriers and similar devices.
