Why You Should Continue Your Education In Access Control Power

Why You Should Continue Your Education In Access Control Power

IF YOU’RE READING THIS PUBLICATION, CHANCES ARE YOU’RE EITHER A DHI MEMBER OR SOMEONE ALIGNED WITH OR WORKING IN THE CONTRACT HARDWARE INDUSTRY. YOU ARE RELIED UPON FOR YOUR EXPERTISE IN THE TECHNICAL APPLICATION OF ARCHITECTURAL DOORS AND HARDWARE PRODUCTS AS WELL AS BUILDING, FIRE, AND LIFE SAFETY CODES TO DOOR OPENINGS. CONTINUOUS EDUCATION ON PRODUCTS, CODES AND TRENDS IS PART OF WHAT HELPS YOU MAINTAIN YOUR HIGH LEVEL OF EXPERTISE.

When it comes to access control systems, the learning curve is steep and fast. Also, when it comes to wiring, many door security and safety professionals are not the ones running wires from the power supply to the electrified hardware and exit devices. After all, you did not install the power supply – you just supplied the material.

You may even rely on the power supply provided by an access control supplier. Yet, when there is a power issue, it usually occurs at the door – your door – with some sort of malfunction. So, who gets the call when the device doesn’t work? You do, of course.

Once you get the call about a malfunctioning device, who do you call? The manufacturer! As a manufacturer of electrified hardware and access control devices, what do you think we do in our decision tree of troubleshooting questions to solve your problem?

Invariably – unless there is an obvious problem with the device – we start with power questions. Why? Because we have learned and documented over many decades of technical support calls that 75 to 85 percent of access control operating problems and technical support calls are due to power issues, not the device.

The quality and reliability of electrified hardware brands in today’s industry is very high. And unless it was improperly installed or damaged during installation, the device is probably not the problem.

Avoiding costly callbacks and damage to your reputation is important to everyone. Maintaining fundamental knowledge of access control power is key. You’ll find there is always something new to learn, or a special tip to apply that will make all the difference on your door opening project. We’ve learned that with basic access control power skills, you can immediately address possible conflicts between what was designed versus what was installed, repaired or upgraded for most access control projects.

Industry associations like DHI, and manufacturers, have a wealth of information, tools and training to assist you un your electrified door control endeavors. Depending on your need and comfort level with access control power, visit the Education section of the DHI website (www.dhi.org), where you can learn more about courses such as:

COR133 – Electrified Architectural Hardware

EHC400 – Electrified Hardware Applications and Documentation

EHC433 – Advanced Electrified Architectural Hardware

CE1503 – Intermediate Electrified Access Control (a micro-learning course)

How To Select the Right Delayed Egress Lock Configuration For You

How To Select the Right Delayed Egress Lock Configuration For You

[fusion_text]

We receive a lot of inquiries about Delayed Egress Locks: where to use them and how to pick the right one for a particular door application. Although there are variety of ways to configure locks, exit devices and access control components, SDC has developed the Exit Check® line of Delayed Egress Locks to configure solutions to address the most common applications with reliability, durability and value.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Delayed egress locks are designed to delay exit through perimeter doors locked on the entry or access side for security, but also provide an easy and obvious means to open the door on the exit or egress side to meet code requirements for fire and life safety.
Delayed egress lock applications include retail loss prevention, pedestrian control in public facilities, wandering patient control and nursery infant protection, as well as warehouses, technology facilities or areas containing hazardous materials or equipment.

Delayed Egress Lock functionality is provided by electronic delayed egress circuitry connected to or integrated into the lock itself. SDC’s Exit Check® line of Delayed Egress Locks come in a variety of device configurations, from Electromechanical locks with delayed egress circuitry and locking components built in, to Electromechanical locks connected to separate delayed egress controllers, and from Electrified Exit Devices connected to separate delayed egress controllers, to Electrified Exit Devices like the new S6000-101 Delayed Egress All-In-One with the controller and delayed egress logic all integrated into the bar.

Delayed Egress using an Electromagnetic Lock is an ideal solution for indoor, outswing door applications with existing latching hardware. On the other hand, Delayed Egress using an Electrified Exit Device does not require existing latching hardware and is available in rim mount, mortise and vertical rod configurations.[/fusion_text][fusion_text]
