How Does an Electromagnetic Lock Work?

Magnetic door lock is keyless; the locking system of a mag lock is under the control of an electromagnetic strip.  When the magnet that is connected to the frame of the door gets energized because the power crosses through the coils and the armature plate that is attached to the door, the door becomes secured. In high security settings, the mag lock is activated by scanners, which have the capacity to read retinas, fingerprints, and facial features before employees and guests can be allowed entry. In some organizations or homes, it is used in conjunction with a card reader or a keypad system, where a numeric code, password or PIN is read by the program, sent to the control panel, compared to the access control list, and issued permit or deny access. In case of resigned employee (with assigned password or PIN code) or lost card, the code can be easily deactivated in the program. From the inside, it can be opened using a buzzer, which will allow the manual release of the lock. This locking device can be fail-secure and fail-safe; you can choose which type can meet your needs. It is fail-secure thus the door remains closed in the event of power failure. It is also fail-safe that in the result of loss of electricity, the door is unlocked. Often, a mag lock is used in glass doors, emergency exits, and fire doors.
