Hi/Shear Locks - Magnetic Locks
HI/Shear® Magnetic Lock - HI/Shear® Electromagnetic Lock
IDC Hi/Shear® magnetic lock utilizes several of the most innovative and unique design attributes. The Hi/Shear is the magnetic lock that gives those who want a better shear lock all the latest features.
The IDC Hi/Shear® is a totally concealed, high security, failsafe locking mechanism with superior appearance. The patented Hi/Shear® electromagnetic lock design incorporates a “floating” armature assembly and special alloy steel locking “tabs” on both the lock and armature assemblies, that may be adjusted both vertically and laterally to compensate for wide door gaps and warped or misaligned doors.
Hi/Shear® magnetic locks are ideal for use on commercial grade hollow metal and wood doors and frames and Herculite doors with top rails.
Door Static and Alignment Sensor
The door static sensor ensures that the door is at rest and aligned, before the magnet is permitted to energize, eliminating potential for lock misalignment.
Lateral Alignment Adjustment
Lateral adjustment of shear tabs to compensate for warped or misaligned doors, permitting accurate locking.
Vertical Alignment Adjustment
Vertical adjustment of both the armature and the adjustable delay relock sensor compensates for wide door gaps.
A unique âfloating” action makes for easier armature lift when the magnet is energized and provides the ability to overcome wide door gaps.
2000 or 2700 Lbs Holding Force
2000 or 2700lbs. of holding force without current inrush or high operating temperature normally associated with shear locks.
Alloy Steel Shear âTabs” on Lock and Armature
Alloy shear tabs are used on both the lock and the armature to ensure continued high holding force. There is no profiling of the soft armature steel that may be prone to wear and reduced holding force.
Advanced Electronic Circuitry
Advanced electronic circuitry that incorporates door static, positioning and timed relock sensor and automatic voltage sensing for 12/24VDC input.
Noise dampeners greatly reduce the noise associated with locking and unlocking of other shear locks on the market.
