The 5th generation SimonsVoss cylinder is born: the springboard for ground-breaking innovations developed on the modern AX platform.

The Digital Cylinder AX is the most powerful cylinder we have ever had. It is also the most user-friendly: An ergonomic yet compact thumb-turn with optical and audible signals makes operation easier. We have also given priority to high-quality materials. This ensures that the Digital Cylinder AX is robust and durable with very low operating costs at all times.

The Digital Cylinder AX represents state-of-the-art technology today. Yet it also contains the future. This is because it is equipped ready for technological advances and has the technical potential for future innovations.
