All electrical access control systems will require a means of egress to activate/deactivate the electronic locking device. A number of options are available from a PIR detector to automatically unlock the door, to a simple 'bell push' button.
Please remember that a fail unlocked locking device fitted to a fire escape route door is generally connected into the access control system via a suitable break glass unit which bypass the system in the event of emergency.
Below are a range of items that can be used in conjunction with access control systems and products, including exit buttons, break glass units, power supplies, door loops and keyswitches.
A suitable power supply must be specified to match the requirements of the access control device, the locking device and ancillary equipment. A single PSU may be used to power multiple units. Please check with Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies Newcastle for details.
