New Low Energy Swing Door Operators Easily Automate Swing Doors

May 5, 2021

Automating medium or heavy-duty swing doors for touch-free access applications is easy with dormakaba’s new ED50LE and ED100LE low energy swing door operators. These swing door operators can automate new or existing manual swing doors with a push plate, wave plate, or other knowing act actuator device and are quiet and subtle. A multitude of adjustable features offers flexibility to fine tune the operator to meet opening requirements.

“Our new ED50LE and ED100LE enables you to transform almost any manual door to an automatic swing door. The solution is independently tested beyond 1 million cycles and fully ADA compliant,” said Tom Chaney, assistant vice president, customer experience and product management, entrance systems and interior glass systems. “It is a highly adjustable, smartly engineered operator system in a variety of outswing and inswing door applications either with a push or a pull arm.”

The ED100LE is tested beyond traditional standards, using a larger door with greater weight and testing to over one million cycles, with continued testing beyond that benchmark. Tests have shown that at one million cycles, the product uses only 20 percent of its motor life. In addition, tests show that the ED100LE operator has less than a one percent failure rate, globally. It also offers full power durability in a low energy setting.

This product is ideal for interior or exterior use in medium to heavy duty (600 lbs. door) settings such as hospitals, classrooms, care facilities, hotels, office entrances, restaurants, and at commercial and academic institutions. Specific features include:

· Integrated hardware power supply and relay, allowing for seamless control of security hardware

· Built-in door position status, indicating door open or door closed

· Close and latch in case of power loss (adjustable closing speed on loss of power)

· Hardware pre-load functionality for reliable operation

· Built-in system interface for connection to any access control system

The ED100LE boasts a small footprint, up to 65 percent smaller than similar operators. It is ADA compliant and meets the stringent requirements of ANSI 117.1 and ANSI A156.19.
