Options for 8000 | 3000 Series Exit Devices

SE Option Discontinuation Notice - MLR Replacement

The Adams Rite Silent Electrification (SE) Motorized Latch Retraction option for all 8000/3000 Series Exit Devices has been discontinued and replaced with the new MLR Motorized Latch Retraction option. The new MLR option incorporates a new mechanical linkage mechanism and eliminates the need for field calibration during installation, resulting in efficient operation to unlatch the exit device. MLR option is currently available for orders and is shipping now.

Discontinuation Notice >>

SE to MLR Part Number Cross-Reference Chart

New part numbers for MLR will be in effect as of October 8, 2019 – see part number conversion chart for assistance. Customers can continue using valid SE part numbers through Oct 7, 2019 but orders will be fulfilled with the new MLR product and the product label will have a circular blue sticker to easily identify the upgraded product. Starting Oct 8th, new part numbers will be in effect and product shipped will reflect new part numbers on the label.

NOTE: New part numbers have replaced the “SE” from the old part number with “MLR”. There are no other changes. 

Adams Rite Exit Devices can be ordered with electrification options for standalone access control or integration with maglocks, card readers, keypads, fire alarms, power door operators, and other control systems. Different exit device types have different installation and power requirements. Please refer to product pages for detailed information.

Motorized Latch Retraction (MLR): 

The Motorized Latch Retraction option incorporates a powerful and efficient motor to unlatch the exit device. Motor-powered latch retraction provides a quieter operation than solenoid options. Adams Rite recommends that for optimal performance all exit devices with MLR option be paired with PS-SE Power Supplies.
• Available on all 8000/3000 Series
• NEW! No calibration required during installation
• Robust linkage mechanism for extended operation
• 850 mA during retraction and 370 mA maintained in dogged hold position
• Requires 2A at 24 VDC regulated/filtered power supply

Electric Latch Retraction: 

The EL option for rim exit devices and LR option for all other exit devices (non-rim exit devices) use a solenoid mounted under the pushbar for instantaneous unlocking and locking of the exit device from a remote location or access control device. Because electrical operation of device is fail-secure, this option can be used on fire-rated as well as life-safety applications. In the event of a power failure, device automatically relocks.

LR Option: 
• Solenoids are rated for both intermittent and continuous operation. Solenoid specifications for CVR, SVR, and Mortise type devices (LR option): • 16 Amps inrush/ 0.5 Amps hold
• Order PS-LR Power Supply separately for LR option (PS-LR powers two exit devices). Rated for continuous duty (see POWER). Adams Rite recommends that for optimal performance all CVR, SVR, and mortise type exit devices with the LR option are installed and powered using PS-LR power supplies.
• 4612 Power Transfer is available separately for secure and unobtrusive means of channeling electrical wiring from the door frame into the door itself.

EL Option: Rim devices with the EL option are available in 12 or 24 VDC and can be powered with a simple transformer and rectifier or other DC power supply.
• EL-12 VDC – 1.5 Amps inrush/hold
• EL-24 VDC – 0.6 Amps inrush/hold
• Solenoids are rated for both intermittent and continuous operation. Only rim exit devices with the “EL” application are available with mechanical dogging, specify “ELD”
• Order PS-1 Power Supply separately for EL option (PS-1 powers two exit devices). Rated for continuous duty (see POWER). Adams Rite recommends that for optimal performance all all rim exit devices with the EL option are installed and powered using PS-1 power supplies.
• 4612 Power Transfer is available separately for secure and unobtrusive means of channeling electrical wiring from the door frame into the door itself.

Alarm: 

Suitable for all Adams Rite exit devices 36" wide or greater. This battery-operated alarm option emits a loud 95 decibel alarm to notify management of unauthorized exit. Alarm is controlled by a key in standard 1" [25.4 mm] length, 1-5/32" [29.4 mm] diameter mortise cylinder with MS® cam such as the 4036 Mortise Cylinder. The cylinder is used to arm, disarm, delay, or reset the alarm. Will not alter the life-safety characteristics of the exit device in any way. Red letters printed on the bar give a “hands off” warning to deter accidental activation. Four AA alkaline batteries power twin horns for two minutes (or until disarmed) when pushbar is depressed. Beeps to signal need for new batteries.

Monitor: 

Mounted under the exit device pushbar on the hinge end, switches may be used to activate signal light, horn, monitor, or other devices. Switches can be wired for normally open or normally closed. Can be retrofit in field to existing exit devices. Dual switch version offers redundancy as required by some building codes or it can operate a second signaling device. Suitable for all Adams Rite exit devices.
• Order Monitor/Signal Kits for upgrading any 3000 or 8000 Series device: 91-0897-01 for Single Monitoring Switch Kit or 91-0897-02 for Dual Monitoring Switch Kit.
• M1: Single monitoring switch
• M2: Dual monitoring switches

Cylinder Dogging:

Suitable for all non-fire rated Adams Rite exit devices that require management control of exit device dogging. Any standard 15/16” [23.8 mm] to 1-1/8” [28.6 mm] length,1-5/32" [29.4 mm] diameter mortise cylinder with MS® cam such as the 4036 Mortise Cylinder can be used in a pushbar prepared at factory with Cylinder Dogging kit. Cannot be ordered with any other exit device options.

Electric Dogging: 

The ED option uses a holding magnet that keeps the pushbar depressed once it is set manually, and keeps the latch retracted for a lower profile exit device, resulting in less damage and quieter operation. An internal microswitch signals when the bar is depressed – ideal for automatic door operators. On fire-rated devices, the ED option must be wired through the fire alarm system. Devices operate at 24 VDC at 0.6 Amps, with only a transformer and rectifier. Suitable for all Adams Rite exit devices. Not to be used as an access control element. SE Silent Electrification Motorized Latch Retraction option or LR Latch Retraction option is recommended with access control devices such as card readers or keypads.

Matching End Caps: 

Standard Adams Rite exit devices come with black metal end caps. Matching endcaps are available for applications where it is preferable that the end caps match the finish of the exit device. Available for US finishes only. Specify by adding“MEC” after the regular ordering matrix.

Trim: 

3080 Series Entry Trim: 3080 Series Entry Trim provides outside activation for doors with any type of Adams Rite exit device or deadlatch. The locked handle is protected from vandalism and forced entry with a breakaway clutching mechanism.

3090 eForce® Keyless Entry: 3090 eForce Keyless Entry provides access control for Adams Rite deadlocks, deadlatches, and exit devices for aluminium, hollow metal and wood door applications. The battery-operated eForce 3090-150 provides basic access control for openings not requiring audit trail. The eForce 3090P (Prox) and 3090C (iCLASS®) provide hardwired security with HID® Prox or iCLASS contactless card readers. Please see the TRIM section of the catalog/website for additional information.
