FSH Electro Magnetic Locks

FSH Electro Magnetic Locks

Electromagnetic Locks contain an electromagnetic core (laminated steel-core with copper wire) and an armature plate (carbon free steel plate). The electromagnet on the door frame attracts the armature plate on the door, locking it.

Features

  • LED (LP) is the external long distance visibility indicator panel (colour change, red/green/off),visible from both the rear and side of the Electromagnetic Lock, indicating the status, insecure/secure or power-off.
  • LOCK STATUS SENSOR (LSS) is the monitoring by either hall effect or reed switch (flush mount magnetic locks) of the correct alignment and locking of the armature plate with the magnetic lock face. This facilitates the Light Panel (LP) change over, red/green/off indication, at the same time providing change over switching of a 24V DC/1A (max) dry contact relay for remote alarm indication.
  • DOOR STATUS SENSOR (DSS) is the monitoring of the door position by reed switch within the magnetic lock body (door open/door closed), providing switching of normally open dry contacts for remote alarm indication.

    Frequently Asked Questions Magnetic Door Locks

    Magnetic door locks work by using a magnet to hold the door closed. The magnet is typically located on the door frame, and the metal armature is located on the door. When the door is closed, the magnet and armature come together and create a strong magnetic force that holds the door in place.

    • Monitored magnetic door locks are connected to a central security system. This allows the system to monitor the status of the door and to generate an alarm if the door is opened without authorization.
    • Monitored magnetic door locks are more secure than non-monitored door locks, but they are also more expensive.

    Answer richtext

    • Non-monitored magnetic door locks are not connected to a central security system. This means that they cannot generate an alarm if the door is opened without authorization.
    • Non-monitored magnetic door locks are less secure than monitored door locks, but they are also less expensive.
    • Magnetic door locks are used in a variety of commercial and industrial settings, including:
    • Office buildings
    • Schools
    • Hospitals
    • Hotels
    • Retail stores
    • Warehouses
    • Factories

    Magnetic door locks are very difficult to pick or force open, making them a good choice for securing valuable assets. However, it is important to note that no lock is completely foolproof, and a determined thief may still be able to break into a door that is secured with a magnetic lock.

    Installing a magnetic door lock is a relatively simple process that can be completed in a few minutes. The first step is to mark the location of the magnet and armature on the door frame and door. Once the locations are marked, the magnet and armature can be attached using the included screws.

    If your magnetic door lock is not working properly, there are a few things you can check. First, make sure that the magnet and armature are properly aligned. If they are not, the lock will not be able to create a strong enough magnetic force to hold the door closed. Second, check the wiring to make sure that there are no loose or damaged connections. Finally, check the power supply to make sure that it is providing enough power to the lock.

    • Magnetic door locks are very secure. They are difficult to defeat, even by experienced burglars.
    • Magnetic door locks are very reliable. They are not subject to mechanical failure, like traditional door locks.
    • Magnetic door locks are very convenient. They can be opened with a key card, a key fob, or a password.
