Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0942130A2] The lock has mechanical identification in the form of mechanical cuts (4) into the key shaft (2) for aligning mechanical tumblers (8) in the associated cylinder lock (5). There is additional electronic identification which individualizes the key and causes a release reaction in the lock cylinder only for an access authorized key. The additional electronic identification has a sensor (13) on at least one gripping surface (3a) of the key head (3) for detecting predefined person-specific data of the current key user. The sensor works in conjunction with evaluation electronics with a data memory. The current data are compared with previously stored data and a release triggering signal is only generated only in the event of a defined degree of coincidence.
