Mantraps are often manual swing doors forming a vestibule but they can also utilize automatic doors
or gates. Two door mantraps are most common but systems can incorporate thirty or more doors
when several controlled areas are interconnected.
Clean rooms require clean air separation for a controlled environment. These air locks may also utilize
air pressurization to maintain the sterile area. Some air locks use normally unlocked doors,
however better systems will utilize doors that are normally locked with push button release stations on
each. This insures that two or more doors cannot be opened simultaneously.
Security interlocks typically incorporate doors that are normally locked. Traffic flow can be improved
for less secure areas by allowing the interior doors to be unlocked while the perimeter doors are
locked. If automatic door operators are installed, electric locks may not be required if the activation
signal from the push button or motion detector can be interrupted by the interlock control to inhibit the
door from opening.
Automatic sliding doors and swing doors with electromechanical locks require special
locking systems integrated with the automatic door operator.
Life safety codes may be involved when mantraps are used to limit ingress and egress. These will
require that door interlock system be interfaced to the fire alarm control to allow an emergency door
release. A local emergency pull station may be required to allow doors to be unlocked in non-fire
alarm emergencies or to interface the mantrap system with NFPA 101 delayed egress controls.
most reliable systems provide for an independent door interlock controller to be separate from the
computerized card access system for ease of service.
The local building code agency should always be consulted before installation of the locking system.
There are situations where no locks restricting an exit are permitted. In these systems only traffic
lights are used to indicate when entry or exit is permitted.Three Way Interlock Door Control
The #4300 series door interlock controller provides a
high level of access control and an economical solution
for 2-door systems. It can be configured on site to
control two normally locked doors, two normally unlocked
doors or a locked, unlocked pair. Only one door may be
accessed at a time. A request for access or an open door
inhibits the other door which remains secure until the first
door is closed and no request is pending.Environmental or Security Control
Suitable for 2-door air locks or security mantraps, Both
wet and dry output contacts are available for direct lock
control and/or signaling requirements.Access Control Compatible
Any access control system can be used with the 4300
series controllers. The request for access input
recognizes any normally open dry contact. The door
unlock sequence will follow the status of the request for
access input unless the optional AT-timer is specified.Integral 12/24 VDC Power Supply
Comes mounted in an enclosure with a 4 amp power supply.
The 4300 is powered from the built-in 4 amp power
supply which also provides 12 or 24 VDC to operate
maglocks and/or strikes for each of the doors. The
heavy-duty power supply is ready for hook-up to the fire
alarm system. An alarm output is also provided for
monitoring the control system.Panic or Remote Override Feature
The 4300 includes a provision for remote or panic
override to force one or both doors open regardless of

lights or signalling a remote console.Operation
Only one door may be unlocked or open at any time.
Unlocking or opening one door automatically
secures the other door of the designated area. A
request for access at any normally locked door will
inhibit the REX inputs for the other locked door or
secure the other door if unlocked.
Lock relay outputs are powered (12 or 24 VDC
depending on supply) to switch low voltage power to
maglocks and/or strikes. They may also power low
voltage indicators such as LEDs to signal lock status
for traffic control. Typically a green light indicates
that access is permitted, and red signals that
another door is open and access is denied until it
has been secured.
If special requirements such as indication of alarm
conditions or custom timed operations are required,
contact the factory for use of a 4700 series or 4900
series PLC based interlock controller.Related Products
