Overview: - Concealed, high security, Fail Safe locking mechanism
- Incorporates floating armature assembly and special alloy steel locking tabs on both lock and armature assemblies
- May be adjusted both vertically and laterally to compensate for wide door gaps and warped or misaligned doors
- Ideal for commercial grade hollow metal and wood doors and frames and Herculite doors with top rails

Magnetic Shear Lock
Magnetic Locks

Features: - 2,000 lbs (907 kg) holding force without current inrush or high operating temperature
- 8" x 1-1/2" (203 mm x 38 mm) lock
- Integrated electronics
- 1-5/8" (41 mm) depth for 1-3/4" - 2" (44 mm - 51 mm) frames
- Armature supplied with lock (specify type required - ITC, FTC, or HTC)
- Door static sensor ensures door is at rest and aligned, before the magnet is permitted to energize (eliminates the potential for lock misalignment)
- Lateral adjustment of shear tabs to compensate for warped or misaligned doors, permitting accurate locking
- Vertical adjustment of both the armature and the adjustable delay relock sensor compensates for wide door gaps
- Unique floating action for easy armature lift when the magnet is energized and provides ability to overcome wide door gaps
- Alloy shear tabs ensure continued high holding force
- No profiling of the soft armature steel that may be prone to wear and reduced holding force
- Advanced electronic circuitry that incorporates door static, positioning and timed relock sensor and automatic voltage sensing for 12/24 VDC input
- Noise dampeners reduce the noise associated with locking and unlocking

MBS Option: - Bond sensor indicates proper armature contact or reduced holding power due to improper armature contact or tampering
- SPDT 0.25 amp

DPS Option: - Door position switch indicates door open or closed
- SPDT 0.25 amp maximum

HTR Option: - Herculite top rail armature adjustment bracket for leading edge adjustments
