SDC Hybrid Power Supplies Meet the Unique Needs of Access Control Locking Devices

Posted by Kerby Lecka on November 9, 2023 at 10:00 AM

1 – 6 Amp Access Control Power Supplies

In 1994 SDC introduced the 602 power controller – the first hybrid supply to combine the efficiency (low heat generation) of switching power supplies and the rugged inductive load handling capability of linear power supplies to meet the unique needs of access control locking devices. 

Unlike camera system power requirements, access control systems draw more current for locking hardware and during access control-related events. As the industry transitions from solenoid-based electric locking devices to motorized devices, demand for specific power supply requirements has also increased. 

SDC’s 12/24VDC class 2 hybrid power supplies have been designed specifically to meet these needs and reduce power system issues with extra filtering, heavy-duty circuitry for inductive loads and multi-door applications, and an isolated battery charging circuit to protect locking devices and components from over voltage while the batteries are charging. With the addition of SDC programmable controllers or relay modules, the user-friendly modular designs ensure versatility, interface capability and easy installation of virtually any electric locking devices, access controls and related fire life safety equipment.

Back to Basics: Electric Strikes

Posted by Kerby Lecka on October 5, 2023 at 10:00 AM

Back to Basics: Electric Strikes

In 1982, SDC’s first electric strike design initiated the adoption of strikes by the door hardware industry. Then, we engineered the UniFLEX™ 45 and 55 series – the first electric strikes with interchangeable faceplates and field reversibility for failsafe or failsecure operation. The interchangeable design of these strikes allows SDC to also provide multiapplication strike kits that include one electric strike and three faceplates to meet common applications, making them easy to stock and maintain in inventory.

Today, our strikes integrate with a broad range of mechanical locksets, devices, door and frame styles and budgets. Since 1972 SDC products have been designed, engineered and built in America to provide quality products that are readily available.

Southeast Security Products Crowned DoorSnap Champions

Posted by Kerby Lecka on September 15, 2023 at 10:00 AM

SES Generates the Most DoorSnapTM Customer Submissions

Southeast Security Products (https://sesproducts.com), located in Deerfield Beach, Florida, earned year-long bragging rights among SDC’s Door Hardware and Alarm/Electronic Security outside sales rep agencies. From June 1st thru August 31st SES promoted and received the most customer submissions18 - for DoorSnapTM, our award-winning solution for recommending access control locking hardware for door retrofits.

 

DoorSnapTM is included in our Free SDC App and allows customers to send a picture of their retrofit door installation and receive a complimentary access and egress electrified solution recommendation from SDC with product information links and more.

 

For more details, visit: www.sdcsecurity.com/doorsnap.

Concerning DoorSnapTM, SES President, Roy Nilsen says: “We simply show DoorSnapTM to every dealer we can. There is simply no easier way to give a dealer the confidence of specifying a door opening knowing you have the right hardware to get the job done right the first time. It saves dealers time and money and is the easiest value proposition we have in our tool bag…”

Rumor has it that Roy has already reserved a special spot in his display case for the electrified DoorSnapTM trophy being shipped to him this week. When plugged in, the trophy is lit with a rotating palette of colors designed to subliminally encourage more sales on our behalf. Way to go Roy!

Leaders in Latch Retraction

Posted by Kerby Lecka on September 7, 2023 at 10:00 PM

Electric Latch Retraction (ELR)

Since 2012, when SDC launched QuietDuo™ – the first Motorized ELR Kits to convert mechanical exit devices – we’ve been “quietly” leading in electric latch retraction (ELR) upgrades for access control. This includes retrofit solutions for most brands of exit devices, as well as innovative SDC exit devices & mortise lock-sets with factory-installed ELR and automatic door operators with a built-in 1 Amp+ power supply to power them.

With advancements in electric motor technology, the use of a motor for electric latch retraction provides lower current draw, quieter operation, and greater durability over time vs. solenoids.

Back to Basics: Egress Devices

Posted by Kerby Lecka on August 4, 2023 at 10:00 AM

Back to Basics: Egress Devices

In 1992, SDC’s SureExit® was and still is the only tri-failsafe request-to-exit bar and the only egress device utilizing pressure sense technology - with no moving parts. When slight pressure is applied two redundant solid state pressure sensors release locks immediately. A third redundant micro switch is automatically activated to release the door if both sensors or the electronics fail. This ensures door operation will continue without prior knowledge or use. Unlike touch sensors, activation may be accomplished while wearing heavy gloves.

The MSB550 series of mechanical switch REX bars are an economical alternative to sensor activated bars. Both of these narrow, low profile egress device lines are built with heavy duty aluminum extrusions and metal end caps for high traffic while maintaining superior aesthetics for high profile openings. Since 1972 SDC products have been designed, engineered and built in America to provide quality products that are readily available.
