The Electromagnetic Lock System That Will Outlast Your Building
Magnalocks are designed to secure any type of door or gate that
closes against a fixed stop. The product consists of an
electromagnet which mounts on the fixed frame and a strike plate
which mounts on the moving door or gate. The strike plate is
delivered with fasteners that permit it to flex so that when the
door closes, it automatically self aligns with the magnet.
Magnetic force then takes over, strongly securing the door.
Release is achieved by switching off power to the magnet.
Choose The Industry Leader
Securitron has been making electromagnetic locks since 1971 and
has stayed at the forefront thanks to a continuing program of
engineering improvements. In security industry trade journals,
both installing dealers as well as end users have consistently
chosen the Magnalock as the most highly preferred product.
We attribute this not only to the product's features but to its
proven performance in demanding applications world-wide.
Choose From A Complete Family
The Model 62 series offers high security (1200 lbs.) With this
strength, entry typically connot be forced without the aid of
special tools or before the door or frame gives way. It's
recommended not only for any high security opening but also for
outdoor use on all types of gates.
The Model 32 series offers a "traffic control" level of security
(600 lbs.) similar to electric strikes and is recommended for
applications where a physical assault on the door is not
expected. In these applications, the Model 32 brings the
advantages of lower cost and more compact size. Finally a wide
range of options allows you to select the proper unit to meet
electronic and physical mounting considerations.
High Technology Means Performance In Your Application
Creating the world's best elctromagnetic lock calls for serious
engineering. During its 20 years of continued development, the
Magnalock family has incorporated an array of advanced features
(both physical and electronic) that have made it what it is
today. Along the way, it has earned two separate U.S. patents
and an impressive list of cerifications.
Physical Construction And Mounting
A lock should be tough. The Magnalock comes in a stainless
steel case and all ferrous metal surfaces are plated to military
specifications. A 10ft. integral cable makes wiring easy and
the Magnalock is at home indoors or out. Mounting is via
hardened machine screws into self collapsing blind nuts (four
screws with the Model 62; two with the Model 32). Mounting screw
holes are closed off with tamper caps. Sheet metal screws
(which can work free) are not used. Even the strike sex bolt is
massive (1-1/4" diameter head).
First, Magnalocks are remarkably efficient in power use. The 62
series operates on only 3 watts (250 mA at 12 VDC or 125mA at 24
VDC). The 32 series uses 3-1/2 watts (300 MA at 12 VDC or 150
mA at 24 VDC). This benefit is especially important when large
numbers of Magnalocks are operated from a central power supply
connected to the fire alrm system. Magnalock efficiency
generates large cost savings in wire gauge, powere supply and
battery backup costs. Second, internal electronics eliminate
problems often found in other designs. We reverse out residual
magnetism and accelerate field collapse so that Magnalocks
release instantly and fully.
Inductive kickback and EMI are suppressed so there's no arcing
over control switches or interference with nearby electronic
devices. Ferrous metal aging which could lead to stickiness
over time is blocked. We've been awarded a U.S. patent on
Magnalock internal electronics.
