Advantex Electrified Functions 

 

 

Electrified functions are good ways of providing additional security to a simple exit device. Let us introduce you to the Advantex electrified functions. These can be used with most of the Advantex Series devices (see matrix at bottom of this e-mail). Installation videos (10 Series shown) are available for help.

 

Advantex EA/Advantex EI   

Exit Alarm (EA) 

The Exit Alarm (EA) device option is designed for areas that require a stand-alone alarm on an emergency exit door. The alarm will sound when someone attempts to exit a door by depressing the pushpad, alerting management that violation has occurred. The internal alarm with remote signal and remote bypass capabilities is ideal for doors where both security and life safety are a concern.

Advantex ED/Advantex ER  

Electric Dogging (ED)  

The Electric Dogging (ED) device option is designed for entrance and exit doors with panic or fire exit hardware. When energized, and after the pushpad is depressed, the pushpad and the latch bolt remain retracted, providing push-pull operation. Relocking all devices is accomplished by using a signal switch or through a fire alarm input. 

  

 
 
 

  

Delayed Egress (EE)

The Delayed Egress Rim Exit Device (EE) is designed for primary and secondary exits and provides a secure 15-second delay and a 100dB alarm when someone attempts to exit. This 15-second delay allows time for management to respond to the alarm before someone exits and the alarm deters the exit from occurring. Per life safety requirements, the EE must be provided with a fire alarm input, thus providing a system override during a fire emergency. The EE provides security while meeting all life safety concerns, offering an exceptional value.

  
 

  

   Advantex EExER

Delayed Egress With Latch Retraction (EExER)
(order power supply separately)
Delayed Egress with Latch Retraction (EExER) is designed for applications where both delayed egress and remote unlocking, remote dogging, access control or an automatic door operator is desired. An EX Request to Exit Switch is included for push pad monitoring. The 100 dB alarm will sound when someone attempts to exit but the door will remain locked for 15 seconds, deterring unauthorized exits and providing time to respond to the alarm. Ideal for restricted areas, access controlled doors, and any door requiring authorized entry or exit, while preventing unauthorized entry or exit. Perfect for fire-rated, cross corridor, access controlled, delayed egress doors with automatic operators, all without using magnetic locks or electric strikes. 

 

  

  

   Advantex EA/Advantex EI

Electric Integration (EI) 
The Electric Integration device, designed for applications where electric integration is required, provides the customer with a means of integration to new or existing systems, including the Detex Series 800 Logic Controller. The customer may select from these components to integrate and create different functions from the single product package. This variety of components offers an alarm to sound, monitor the latch bolt position and/or pushpad when depressed, signals a remote panel by key switch operation when activated from inside or outside authorization, and offers 2 LED's to enhance required functions. The operation of switches will open or close (SPDT) to integrate with digital video recorders, remote alarms, strobe lights, or commence the cycle in a separate delayed egress system.

 

  

  

   Advantex EM

Delayed Egress With Magnetic Locking (EM)

The Delayed Egress Magnetic Locking (EM) option provides a secure 2-point locking device with 15-second delay and a 100dB alarm when someone attempts to exit. This 15-second delay allows time for management to respond to the alarm before someone exits and the alarm deters the exit from occurring. Per life safety requirements, the EM must be provided with a fire alarm input, thus providing a system override during a fire emergency. The EM provides security while meeting all life safety concerns, offering an exceptional value. 

 

  

  

   Advantex ED/Advantex ER

Electric Latch Retraction (ER)

The Electric Latch Retraction (ER) function is designed for entrance and exit doors with panic or fire exit hardware where remote unlocking, remote dogging, access control or automatic door operator is desired. An optional EX switch may be added to pushpad monitoring. 

 

  

 

 

Electric Switching (ES)
The Electric Switching (ES) option includes two switches; one to monitor the latch bolt position and the other to monitor mechanical access from the exterior. It is designed for doors that require a means of indicating when the latch bolt is retracted while providing an alarm inhibit when using key entry. Always used in conjunction with other security systems, the Advantex ES function provides either normally closed or normally open (field selectable) contacts that can provide a signal to a variety of different components such as remote alarm or a central station. 

 

  
 

  Advantex Es/EX/EXV/EXxW/LX

Request To Exit (EX)
The Request to Exit (EX) signaling option is used on exit doors with panic or fire exit hardware. This option indicates when the pushpad is depressed sending a signal to an alarm or sends a remote signal to monitor egress conditions.

 

  

 

 

Weatherized Request To Exit (EXxW)
For use on doors or gates that require a means of signaling when someone depresses the pushpad on the panic device during egress in a moist, outdoor or other such application. Always used in conjunction with other security items, the EXxW provides a normally closed or normally open contact signal to a logic controller. The controller will turn on a remote horn or strobe, control a magnetic lock during egress or initiate a delayed egress system. The EXxW is UL listed as panic and fire exit hardware as well as UBC standard 7-2 (positive pressure). The EXxW meets the following standards: Mil 810F(G), 509.4 - Salt Fog, Mil 810F(G), 506.4 - Driving Rain Procedure 1, UL1034-34 Temperature Section 34 [Temperature Range -31 F (-35 C) to 151 F (+66 C)], and UL-1034-54 Dust Section 543. 
  
  

 

 

Request To Exit High Current/Voltage (EXV)
The Request to Exit High Current switching option, can be used to control power to a device that requires higher current up to 2.0 amperes; such as an electro-magnetic lock, electric strike or motor. 
  
  

 

 

Weatherized Request To Exit High Current/Voltage (EXVxW) 
The EXVxW meets the following standards: Mil 810F(G), 509.4 - Salt Fog, Mil 810F(G), 506.4 - Driving Rain Procedure 1, UL1034-34 Temperature Section 34 [Temperature Range -31 F (-35 C) to 151 F (+66 C)], and UL-1034-54 Dust Section 54. 
  

 

 

Latch Bolt Monitor (LX)
The Latch Bolt Monitor (LX) offers an internally mounted signal switch that monitors the position of the latch bolt. When used in conjunction with a door position switch, the Advantex Latch Bolt Monitor Switch (LX) can be used to insure a door is secure, signal when a door is opened and closed or send an alert when someone attempts to tamper with the latch bolt.
  
The LX(V) can be combined with other electrified functions.

Tech Tip     

 

Each of the electrical options require power transfers, electric hinges or armored cable loops. The Delayed Egress (EE, EM) options requires a power supply, which is included.

  • EExER and ER electrical options require a power supply/controller.
  • EI, ES and the EX family electrical options require a controller.
