Camden Door Controls announces an enhancement to the CX-33 advanced logic door controller with the addition of a built-in "Lock Down" operating mode.

This feature will enable a designated (N/O) momentary emergency lock down switch, or switches, to disable automatic door activation switches while also locking electric strikes or magnetic locks to prevent entry to a building, area, or room under 'intruder' conditions. Lock down mode is reset with a separate (N/C) momentary push button or key switch. The CX-33 is also equipped with an additional output that can be used to energize a lock-down status LED indicator.

Camden's CX-33 door controller is designed for ‘universal’ operation in virtually any automatic door application. Small enough to fit inside most door operator cases, it provides a large three segment LED and simple push buttons for programming, and supports illuminated signage in restroom applications. CX-33 is pre-programmed for interconnection with access control, fire alarm and telephone entry systems. Operating features include a telephone entry system interface and simultaneous connection of lock out relay and switching network functions.

* Fire/building codes may dictate that this mode NOT be used to secure doors without also installing mechanical egress devices (crash bars) and/or a "request-to-exit" push button on the unsecured side of the door, as building occupants must be able to exit a building in the event of a fire at all times.
