Electro-magnetic locks hold a door shut using the power of magnetic attraction. An electro-magnet only becomes magnetic once electrical power is applied to it. When there is no power applied, it does not generate a magnetic field. This means the door can be freely opened
Is a maglock fail safe or fail secure? Fail safe and fail secure is a key distinction in electronic locking. Each type is better suited to certain environments and particular projects. Fail safe locks are unlocked when power is removed. Power is applied to lock the door and prevent access. Conversely, fail secure locks are locked when power is removed. Power is applied in order to unlock the door and allow access.
