The Electric Delayed Egress with Latch Retraction from Detex Corporation of New Braunfels, Texas, is designed for applications where both delayed egress and remote unlocking, remote dogging, access control, or an automatic door operator is desired. An optional EX Request to Exit Switch may be added for pushpad monitoring or an LBM Switch for latch bolt monitoring. The alarm in the remote interface module, which produces 100 decibels, will sound when someone attempts to exit. The alarm will continue to sound, but the door will remain locked for 15 seconds, deterring unauthorized exit and providing time for the responsible party to respond to the alarm.
