Key Variable Loaders (KVLs) are required to load encryption keys for many secure equipped products in the ASTRO® product line. The KVL 3000 Plus allows key material management through a battery-powered portable device with a bit map display and an intuitive menu. The device offers two levels of password protection: Supervisor and Operator. Password protection improves system security by limiting access to sensitive key management functionality.
