Magnetic locks:Magnetic locks work only with DC current, usually 12 to 24 volts.
Never connect a magnetic lock to AC current of any voltage. You may come across a mag lock that comes with an AC power supply but here the AC voltage is being converted to DC in the lock.
All magnetic locks are FAIL SAFE. This means that they need a constant source of current to remained locked.
If power is removed, the lock will open. If this is a concern use a back-up power supply.
All magnetic locks are silent even when powered and locked.
300 pound pull magnetic locks work well in light duty installations such as cabinetry.
In our opinion, mag locks pulling less than 600 lbs.or so are pretty much useless for door applications.
1200 pound pull magnetic locks are great for serious locking and controlled traffic flow on normal sized doors.
Important: Magnetic locks can be dangerous with respect to fire and life safety if not installed properly.
Before planning an installation it is important to always check with the "Local Authority Having Jurisdiction" (LAHJ) before progressing.
