ASSA ABLOY Electronic Security Hardware Introduces a Stronger, Eco-Friendly Series of Intelligent Magnalocks
New Securitron M680E Series Magnalock® with EcoMag technology® reduces power consumption by as much as 80 percent, saving energy and operational costs.
PHOENIX, Arizona, January 22, 2018 — Today, ASSA ABLOY Electronic Security Hardware introduced the Securitron M680E Series Magnalock with EcoMag technology. Delivering unsurpassed intelligence, style and convenience, this new series has an increased holding strength of 1,200 lbs and is eco-friendly, with an average power draw as low as 60mA at 24V, allowing for use of smaller backup batteries and longer wire runs of thinner wire. This change in power represents a total reduced energy consumption of up to 80 percent over the previous Securitron M680 series.
“Our team is constantly looking for new ways to take our products to the next level,” said David Corbin, Senior Product Manager, ASSA ABLOY. “We knew it was important for the next iteration of the Securitron M680 series to be stronger as well as eco-friendly. Throughout the design phase we worked to ensure that every feature would add something to the series, even going as far as considering throw-away items like using biodegradable cornstarch in the packaging. The result was a lock with great benefits for architects, installers and integrators.”
Another unique feature is a new strike plate mounting template that ensures strike alignment upon installation, making for an easier and less time-consuming installation.
As with the previous series of magnalocks, the Securitron M680E series has optional, integrated features such as passive infrared motion detector, Securitron BondSTAT bond sensor, Door Position Switch and door prop sensing. As standard features, the Securitron M680E series offers configurable LED, auto-relock timer, tamper monitoring as well as MagnaCare lifetime replacement coverage.
Increased holding force, advanced intelligence and decreased power consumption, all offered at the same price point as the previous series, the new Securitron M680E Series Magnalock with EcoMag technology is the most advanced maglock on the market.
