The Z8 weather Resistant Electromagnetic Lock operates with holding a force up to 580kg. Covering a range of applications this magnet is ideal for applications where it is exposed to the weather. With fixing options including wood, aluminium and steel constructions, the range caters to most external needs. The Electromagnet is available in monitored models using Hall-Effect monitoring. An additional advantage is the ability to select either 12V or 24V DC application on site.

Key Features

  • Fail-safe: unlocks when power is removed
  • Easy installation: suitable for both new and retrofit usage
  • Self-alignment: armature plate pivots to accommodate door drop
  • Silent operation: no humming or buzzing
  • Dual voltage: site selectable 12 or 24 Vdc
  • Monitored versions: Hall-Effect status monitoring available


Hall / Bond Monitoring

  • Hall Effect position sensors are non-contact devices that convert energy from a magnetic field into an electrical signal. This indicates that the lock is powered and that the armature plate is in position and magnetically bonded (it monitors if the magnet is locked)


  • Outdoor / Exposed doors
  • Doors located in coastal areas
