External Maglocks By ASP Ltd
Magnetic Locks – Maglocks – Electro Magnetic Lock
The electro Magnet work via a magnetic field securing the Maglock to the door armature plate via an electrical current passing through a coil . Magnetic Locks offers “fail safe” locking meaning when the power is cut the Magnetic field drops releasing the door armature plate from the Maglock allowing entry.
Magnetic locks are suitable for different applications including mortice (Flush fitting) mini magnetic lock, surface mount mini magnetic lock, surface mount double mini magnetic lock, surface mount standard and surface mount (Side fix or face fix) external magnetic lock versions.
The Magnetic lock or mag lock uses an electrical current to produce a magnetic force
Access control systems are operated by one of the peripheral devices (ie. hand and fingerprint readers, keypad, card reader etc ) to identify the user whether access is permitted or not. The power will be automatically turned off by the user and gains access through a reader
The magnetic lock is a simple locking device that consists of a magnetic lock and armature plate with no moving parts and it purely works due to the magnetic field. Therefore the magnetic lock is truly fail-safe (Power to lock). Thus, the magnetic lock is met with both security and fire safety requirements and is available for emergency exit doors
The magnetic locks are made with epoxy potting compound and is protected by this compound, which ensures a long life for the lock. With these above lock characteristics, the electromagnetic lock has become one of the most commonly used access control lock for security engineers
