Dortronics Systems of Sag Harbor, N.Y., introduces the 43211-CB, a communication-capable, fail-safe control system for public restroom applications. The communicating bathroom system provides power to operate most low voltage locking mechanisms including maglocks, strikes and electrified locksets, according to the company.
The “privacy” push buttons will energize door locks for both doors and illuminate the “occupied” high intensity LED indicators outside the bathroom. The privacy push buttons also illuminate to indicate to the user when the doors are locked. Both doors must be closed in order to activate the privacy locks. Opening either door using the mechanical lockset hardware or activating the “emergency release” push button will unlock both doors immediately.
The system includes a fire alarm interface to redundantly unlock both doors for egress. The power supply/controller provides 4 amps of 12 or 24V DC power and is housed in a NEMA enclosure.
