The most complex electronic access systems still rely on mechanical hardware to operate properly. Advanced electronic technology can go to waste without adequate mechanical locking strength and functionality. The Schlage L Series of electrified mortise locks serves as the mechanical component to an electrified locking solution. The lock can be integrated into an electronic access control system or be used as a stand-alone solution with a buzzer or other device as the controller. The L Series offers exceptional flexibility and power savings. The lock automatically adapts to 12V or 24V DC input, and a case-mounted switch allows selection between EL and EU operation. Request-to-exit is modular and can be added without opening the lock case. 0.4 amps maximum current draw allows multiple units on a single power supply, while 0.01amps holding current eliminates ?hot levers? in EL applications. Utilizing the same levers, trims and options as the mechanical Schlage L Series mortise, it integrates as seamlessly with the mechanical component of the project as the electronic. And because it is based on the Schlage L mortise, it carries the same proven record of performance, strength and durability from the most trusted name in the industry.
