Types of Electric Locks

Electric locks have several types tailored to the design of the lock, namely Electric Drop Bolt, Magnetic Lock, Electric Strike

Electric Drop Bolt, is a system that uses bolt to do the locking. Bolt is designed with a strong material such as steel, so it is not easily penetrated or in collapse. The use of this key is suitable for door access that is opened 90 degrees, or 180 degrees.

Magnetic Lock, is a locking system that uses a magnetic system. Magnets are designed to be tied to each other in a particular design, so there will be a locking process. Compared to the other two types of keys, this magnetic system has several flaws, this is because the locking system does not rely on physical devices. The magnet system will be very risky if there is power outages, it is because the magnetic lock does not store power for a long time.

Electric Strike, is a door lock system using solenoid latching as its main device. Latching a selenoid is a lock consisting of a long tubular wire coil with a very tight coil. A wire is formed like a spiral, hereinafter called a coil, when an electric current flows it will act as a bar magnet.

In general, two types of system types of key systems described above are drop bolt and electric electric, has two operating systems, ie fail safe, and fail secure

Fail safe

That is a locking system that occurs when there is an electric current, and will open if there is no electric current. Fail safe this can be called also with the term fail open. How it works is similar to a magnetic key. If there is a power failure, the door will open when pushed or pulled. The fail-safe unit always operates with direct current.

Examples of devices with fail-safe systems are, Solution DB-100 (Drop Bolt), and Stealth ACL-EB01.

Fail Secure

That is a system that will make the door locked if the lights off, or the opposite of the safe Fail. Nevertheless, the key can still be opened by using a mechanical lock system, using the key. Often also called with fail locked or non fail safe.

Thus the explanation of electric keys and various kinds and types. The use of electric keys is indeed very profitable but, in addition to sophistication, you should first consult with design experts and buildings, in order to get the best security recommendations for you to use.
