MAGNALOCK MODELS M32, M62 AND M82B
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. INTRODUCTION
The Securitron Magnalock family represents the state of the art in electromagnetic locking.
There are three (3) models with operational electrical characteristics including mounting
configuration options addressed in this manual.
The BondSTAT “B” Magnalock Series, Bond Sensor, monitors the magnetic field. An internal
sensor activates a SPDT dry contact relay connection designed for interface to access control
and/or alarm systems for reporting the status of the Magnalock. (Section 5.2.4)
The DPS “D” Magnalock Series, Door Position Sensor, is activated by a special magnetic strike
armature assembly. The isolated SPDT reed switch, with an internal resettable protection device,
is designed for interface to access control and/or alarm system for door status. (Section 5.2.4)

5. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
5.1
Pre-Installation Survey
It is recommended that an initial on sight survey be performed. A method of mounting should
be determined and an installation plan should be reviewed as follows:

Physical strength of mounting areas should be strong enough to meet or exceed the
holding force of the required Magnalock.

Placement of the Magnalock wiring and protection from potential damage due to intruders
or vandals external attack should be considered during the survey.

Accessibility should be considered for prevention of any potential safety hazard.
Additional brackets may be needed for proper installation. Specialized brackets are available
through Securitron and their many product distributors. (Section 6)
5.2
Out-Swinging Door
The installation shown below in Figure 2 illustrates the door swinging away from the Magnalock.
This is a common configuration on the secure side of exit doors. The Magnalock mounts to the
door frame header near the corner opposite the hinge side. The Magnalock may be mounted
horizontally or vertically depending on the installation required. The brackets shown in Figure 2
are to assist installation to door frames that may need modifications to complete the installation.

The following general guideline should be used for consideration during the installation review:





5.2.1
Read and follow the template instructions which include drilling and mounting instructions.
Installing a strike plate horizontally, the top edge of the strike will be approximately 1/8"
[3.2mm] below the door frame stop. If the strike and magnet are to be mounted
vertically, increase this clearance between the strike and frame to 3/16" [4.8mm].
An approximated 1” [25.4mm] clearance should be considered between the Magnalock
and the edge corner of the door frame. This will allow proper access for the mounting
locations for drilling and tool access.
Use the template provided for positioning and marking the mounting locations of the
Magnalock and strike. Check the external and internal areas of the marked door and
frame for any obstacles such as wire chases or internal structural features. Make
necessary adjustments to avoid these obstacles.
Offset strikes are available for lowering a strike alignment 1/4” [6.0mm] allowing
clearance when door construction contains obstructions in the mounting locations.
Mounting the Magnet
Installations with blade stops require an Aluminum Spacer Bracket (ASB) for clearance without
having to cut the stop as shown in Figure 4. Information on mounting brackets is located in
Section 6 of this manual.
To properly install the Magnalock, the following conditions should be verified:
 The entire Magnalock mounting area for the magnet must be a flat surface.
 The frame area selected must be structurally strong enough for support.
 The magnet face must be mounted parallel to the door face when closed.
 The installed strike must still allow the door to close properly by clearance and alignment.
 The Magnalock face and strike plate must be aligned so that they are centered.
ALIGNMENT IS IMPORTANT FOR “B” & “D” MAGNALOCKS (Section 5.2.4)
ALIGNMENT IS CRITICAL FOR THE MAGNALOCK HOLDING FORCE (Section 2)




Mark and drill all holes for the mounting screws as instructed on the template.
Make wire connections, apply power and test for proper operation.
Mount the Magnalock using the hardware and thread locking compound provided.
Tighten the screws until secure.
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN SCREWS

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
General Characteristics
The Magnalock is a low current load device using specialized internal circuitry. The normal
characteristic of an inductive load, such as inductive kick-back, is not present. See Section 2 for
more information.
5.3.2
Electrical Standards
DC voltage, full-wave rectified, must be provided for proper operation of the Magnalocks. The
red wire receives +12VDC or +24VDC, and the black wire, 0 Volts (negative). If the lock is
connected with reverse polarity, it will not operate. The M32, M62 and M82B Magnalocks are
auto sensing dual voltage locks. The Magnalock circuit design will automatically select the proper
operational conditions for the applied voltage. See Section 2 for more information.
5.3.3
Poor Release Characteristics
The Magnalock is designed with quick release circuitry. Wiring errors may cause a Magnalock to
release slowly. Figure 10 illustrates a parallel installation of a resistive load (correct). Figure
11 illustrates a parallel reverse diode (incorrect).

5.3.8
Emergency Release
Magnalocks are often wired into a system for quick release in case of emergency. Manual
switching or automatic triggering from a fire alarm system is practical. It is the user's
responsibility to correctly hookup the Magnalock according to the instructions.
It is
recommended to use a switch or relay to perform break of power. Securitron power supplies
have terminals for the interconnection of such emergency release switches.

Remote Power Supply
The Magnalock requires adequate voltage and current for proper operation.
Resistance is created by the length and gauge (size) of the wire being used.
An accurate estimated distance from the power supply to the opening is crucial.
For superior operation the correct size gauge wire must be used.
The devices used operate the best with the least amount of resistance on the source.
Using the correct gauge wires protects against large voltage and current (load) losses.
The gauge is determined by the wire distance, voltage and current of all devices.
Determining Wire Gauge
Follow Example A (12VDC system) and Example B (24VDC system) below.
Use Tables 1 and Table 2 to choose the correct wire gauge for the application.
