The 692 Smart Bar is an electronic switching device with no moving parts, which serves as a non-latching request-to-exit bar at and egress door. It allows one motion egress at doors equipped with electromagnetic or electronic locks, with “no prior knowledge” required by the user. Touching the Smart Bar at any point on the bar activates internal circuitry which controls power to the locking device. No moving parts results in low maintenance and long life.
The 692 Smart Bar provides two directionally opposed infrared detection circuits to sense an exit request. As a person touches the bar, the light beam is broken. The patent-pending redundant system provides a high level of life safety and peace of mind to the end user.
An audible alarm is standard. This feature provides a security alarm to alert when there is a prolonged unlocked condition caused by a continued break in the light beam. This feature is desirable in applications requiring monitoring of security conditions or delayed egress.
- Dual Infrared detection circuits, patent-pending
- No moving parts - one motion egress
- Audible alarm standard, alerts prolonged unlock condition
- DPDT relay standard - single access control panel or auxiliary device
The 692 Series Touch Bar is a non-latching releasing device which uses two photo beams to detect intention to exit. Breaking either or both beams will deactivate the relay. Loss of power to the device will also deactivate the relay. It is most often used as a switch to release a magnetic lock. A double pole output is standard. The device can be ordered to fit 3 standard door openings. A 24-inch (minimum) pre-connected cable comes standard to make installation easier.
