This electric door strike is designed to be either fail-secure or fail-safe. To change the configuration simply move the screws the appropriate location. Fail-safe door strikes are generally used on interior door, where the loss of power will not trap people in their offices. Fail-safe door strikes are preferred on doors that are meant to be left unlocked during long periods of time since there is no power needed to remain in the unlocked position. For exterior doors, fail-secure door strikes are preferred as it will keep a building secure during power loss.
The SEL-300 electric door strike in the fail-safe configuration power is only used as long as the door is locked. The fail-secure configuration only requires power when the door is being unlocked. When a device interrupts the power going to the normally closed or normally opened dry contact, the strike will be able to manually pushed in. The door will then be able to be either pushed or pulled and the latch on the door will push the strike out the way. This will allow you to open the door. In order to have the proper amount of time to disengage the door latch, you need to pair the SEL-300 with a access control device. This is because the relay on the strike will only be disengaged as it is being activated. An example of this would be using a simple push button to activate the relay on the strike. The relay on the strike will only be activated while the button is depressed, once the person lets go of the button the strike will become locked again. The use of a timed relay in the access control devices will allow you to have the proper amount of time needed to open the door.
