The EW8310 is more than an Electromagnetic lock, it can also sense when an intruder is attempting to gain access into a building through a locked door.
The patented built-in sensor detects attempted forced entry and activates a local and/or remote alarm prior to the integrity of the door being compromised; well before the break-in has occurred.

An alarm in the immediate location will ward off would be thieves before they have a chance to gain access. The light panel provides highly visible information related to the status changes of the door. For example, it works as a status indicator when the door is secure or notifies if an attempted break-in has occurred.

Nuisance Delay This feature is designed to accommodate accidental triggering. A pull to the door with a minimum of 55lbs of force changes the light panel from green to red and triggers the local alarm relay. If the pressure is withdrawn within 4 seconds, the system will return to normal.
30 Second Alarm Period If pressure on the door is maintained for more than 4 seconds, the remote alarm relay will de-activate, the local alarm relay remains on and the light panel continues to flash red.
After 30 seconds, the local and remote alarm relay will remain in its de-activated state until the lock has been reset, but the light panel will continue to blink indicating an attempted break-in has occurred until reset.
Light Panel This full length feature is a highly visible red and green status indicator.
Supplementary Sounder An external alarm device may be connected to pulse during the 4 second nuisance delay and sound steady during the 30 second remote alarm period.
