How to install Electro Magnetic Door Lock

In this video we will be going to look at how to install an electromagnetic lock to a door and doorframe of an access control system we will be using an AM lock from Access Pro before we begin let's take a look at the lock itself and the tools required to ensure a smooth installation the lock itself comes in two halves a thin metal plate and a thick half the thicker piece is the electromagnet itself this is usually the part which is connected to the power supply which enables the mechanism to lock when installing it is important to remember that the thin piece attaches to the door and the thicker piece connects to the door frame as this is the half that has wires connected to the device let's take a look at the tools required for installation a drill with an appropriate size drill bit if you're drilling into concrete or brick make sure you're using the correct masonry drill bit a ruler and pencil for marking the position of the locks a Phillips screwdriver each lock should come with all the correct screws for a proper installation we place our screws in a small container to ensure we do not misplace any of the components let's begin with the installation begin with the thinner metal piece which will be attached to the door before we screw this into position we will need to mark off the correct location using the ruler and pencil this is done while the door is closed as we need to account for the lip at the doorframe as shown here if we mount the magnet while the door is open there is a danger that you may mount the magnet to the very top of the door now that we have our screw holes marked correctly we can begin to drill our holes once you have marked off the area you can begin to mount the plate to the door using the appropriate screws or fitments before you do your final tightening of your screws close the door to double-check the fitting of your lock if everything is okay go ahead and tighten your screws now that we have completed one half of the mechanism it's time to move on to the en lock which shouldn't be installed on the doorframe in order for an e/m lock to function it's extremely important that a thorough connection is made between the two magnets so take extra care when marking off the area for a second device to guarantee correct alignment to begin we will close the door so we can see where our metal plate sits in relation to the doorframe then we will take our second magnet and perfectly line them up using the pencil ruler taking care to mark any screw positions along way a good tip would be to power on the e unlock and clamp it to the metal plate then mark off its position on the door frame as this lock has wiring attached we also need to account for this by drilling the appropriate holes for the wire to pass through what's this is being done go ahead and drill your holes now thread your cable through the hole you made and position a log to ensure the fitment is correct if everything lines up correctly go ahead and tighten into place using the provided screws once again it's important to remember that the two magnets should sit flush together to ensure a decent connection can be made for the lock to work now that we've completed fitting the e/m lock check out our next videos which show how to install an RFI reader and how to connect them to complete the system you
