Lockwood V-Lock 11.4 -26VDC Fail Safe Full Monitoring

V-Lock Strike Plate used in door locking systems, particularly in commercial and industrial settings.

V-Lock Strike Plate Function - It provides a secure anchor point for the latch or bolt to engage when the door is closed. This reinforcement helps distribute the force evenly when the door is locked, making it more secure and durable.

  • The unique and popular Lockwood/Trimec ES8000 V-Lock has been completely redesigned and engineered to produce the new ASSA ABLOY ES8100 V-Lock.
  • Designed and assembled in Australia, with patents pending in various countries, the ES8100 incorporates many improvements over its Lockwood/Trimec predecessor, the ES8000, including a higher preload rating of 100kg, Door Position Monitoring, integrated LED lock status and diagnostics visual indication, increased door misalignment correction from 7mm to 12mm, an IP53 rating for external door applications and simple, one-step, PTO/PTL onsite configuration.
  • Although completely redesigned internally, the new ES8100 V-Lock body and faceplate retains the original footprint and is a direct retrofit to the original ES8000 model. The ES8100 strike plate utilises the same fixing locations but is 3mm wider to increase misalignment distance.
  • The ES8100, also known as the V-lock, contains a high torque motorised bolt which moves into a V shaped Strike Plate, pulling the door into alignment, when locked. The ES8100 may be mounted either vertically or horizontally but cannot be mounted in the floor.
  • The ES8100 V-Lock can be mortice mounted and concealed from view or surface mounted, with the inclusion of an optional kit. A slim design with classic satin stainless steel faceplate, makes the ES8100 a product with great aesthetic appearance and easy installation.

Specification Statement:

The lock must be a high torque motorised bolt with pre-load tolerance, capable of unlocking with up to 100kg of side pressure (Pre-Load) and Locking up to 35kg Pre-Load. The lock must have a minimum IP Rating of IP53, include integrated lock status and diagnostics LED indication, lock status and door position monitoring and be site configurable for Fail Safe (PTL) or Fail Secure (PTO) operation. The lock shall accept an operating voltage between 11.4 to 26VDC and draw no more than 1000mA during change of state and 35mA when idle.

The strike plate must be shaped in a V format to accommodate up to 12mm (total) for misaligned doors. The lock must be triggered with a magnet positioned in the strike plate and be monitored for locked, unlocked and door position.
