 Product description
Metra Electronic Locking System (ELS) is primarily designed and used for locking lockers. Each ELS
system has two basic components: Metra Locker Controller and Metra Display. Locker Controller
drives and monitors up to 16 locks connected directly to the unit, with the possibility to add up to
two Extension Modules for 8 additional Electronic Locks each. This enables configurations of 16, 24
or 32 locks, which makes the controller adoptable to many locker layout configurations.
Locker Controller also supports emergency and security features. In case of attempt of break in an
Alarm message is distributed over Metra NET Network to other Metra devices.
Display (connected to the Locker Controller) is the products user interface. Different types are
available to suit different applications.
Page 4
Metra ELS User Manual
Other enhancing accessories are also available:
 A Fingerprint module can be added to lock/unlock lockers simply by placing the finger
 Euro deposit pad limits locker misuse
 Coin acceptor generates revenue from locker use
Product can be used totally independent of Metra NET Network; Wiring all the Locker Controllers
into a network and adding a Metra Network Controller enables additional alarm notification, remote
locker management, and remote unlocking of locks by pushbutton.
Operating parameters are set up through Display’s keypad and stored in internal battery powered
memory. To simplify setup of Locker Controllers and master/payment/setup code management also
Metra ELS SW can be used.
 Basic parts
 Display
Display Combo
Metra Display RFID is a user interface for Metra ELS systems, while
Metra Display Combo and Keypad are a user interfaces for Metra
ELS and Metra ELS SELECT systems.
Display Combo: Read RFID tickets as locker keys. Twelve key
washable keypad is integrated to enable additional user
interaction (PIN, locker number, etc.) and can be used for locking /
unlocking instead of RFID media.
Display RFID: Reads RFID tickets as locker keys.
Display Keypad: Integrated 12 key washable keypad to enable
user interaction (PIN, locker number, etc.).
Each model shows the locker number on a four digit LED display.
They also perform audio signalization and show an alarm message
if an attempt of break-in is detected on a Metra Electric Lock
connected to a Metra Locker Controller.
Locker Controller’s operating parameters are set up through
integrated 4 key system keypad (Display RFID) or through 12 key
keypad (Display Combo and Keypad) and stored in Locker
Controller’s internal battery powered memory. To simplify setup
of Locker Controller and manage master keys and master/setup
codes also Metra software can be used.

Metra ELS User Manual
 Fingerprint module (optional)
Fingerprint module allows users to lock/unlock the locker by presenting the
finger to sensor. It offers higher comfort for users as they don't need to
remember PIN code or carry around the RFID media. When fingerprint module
is connected to ELS Locker Controller each user can freely choose whether
he/she will lock the locker using fingerprint/PIN code/RFID media.
 Euro deposit pad (optional)
Euro deposit pad is mounted under the door strike. The locker can be locked
only if a coin is inserted. The coin is used as a deposit while the locker is
closed/locked.
 Display as User interface
Standard models are supplied with front mask in gray colour and LED display in blue colour. For
additional colours contact Metra sales.
