Hi, guys. My name is Darrel. I'm the head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk and thank you for tuning in and looking at one of our product review videos. And more importantly the product that we're reviewing today, is the emergency call point, or the emergency break glass unit for door access control systems, external grade, weatherproof, IP66, and here it is here.
So, I wanted to go through with a little bit more, a little bit more detail. I've actually stripped it all down and broken it all down into its little pieces. And I'll go through it's assembly procedures now a little bit later on. But the idea of having this external enclosure like what you can see here, make sure that the product is weatherproof if it's designed to go in external applications.
So, what you'll find as well, on the bottom here, is we've got 20 millimetre conduit knockouts there. And you've got one at the top and you've got one on the bottom and even these here have got a rubber seal around them, guys. I don't know if you can zoom in there for us, Lee. You can see there's even a rubber seal there on the actual nut itself.
So, if you're bringing the conduit up from the bottom, or you're bringing the conduit down from the top, then of course then, you can keep one in, or if you're going straight through you can carry on through and out the other end, it's entirely up to you. That takes a 20 millimetre conduit there.
Now, to get the actual cover off, it comes with this key here, which is also your test key. And, it goes in there and you twist this then to allow you to release the cover. By releasing the cover then, this cover comes off there like that. And what you can see inside here then, this the glass here, what gets broken technically or pushed and sets off the triggers.
The beauty with this particular type of emergency door release, is that it's got three sets of contacts. I'll show you the contacts and all inside now in a minute. It's then fixed by these four points here, which is the Allen keys here and they're stainless steel screws as well. So, you know, they've put a lot of thought knowing that this is going to be used for external. In fact, I don't know if you can actually zoom in there, Lee, for us.
I use this Allen key here that comes with it, by the way, but even the actual microswitches in there, there's three of them as you can see them across there. They've got little rubber bollards on, to stop the weather getting in underneath the actual grommets, which is underneath the push switches as well. So, you know, there's a lot of thought gone into the manufacture of this.
So, if I now take that off there like that, this is the actual back box now, and this the back box that you would actually then fit to whatever you want to fit it to. And you drill the holes or you fix your screw fixings through these external points here. There's one, two, three and four. It's those then that would get screwed in and then you'd use then your top and your bottom then in which to get your cadence into. So that's the actual back box.
On the back of this now, you will see then, is that, if you can zoom in there for us, you can see you've got three rows of contacts there. So, the amount of choices that you've got, and it's common, normally open, normally closed. So, you can have a normally open, normally closed solution on one and a normally open solution on another and a normally closed solution on another. It's very, very diverse. Again, you can see the black all the way around there as well as the seal is inside as well.
So, for an emergency external grade panic door release unit, this is well founded in my opinion. And if you've got an application where you need to fit one of these externally, then, guys, this is what you should be looking at fitting. If there's something there that I haven't mentioned or you think, "I need to know that," or, "I need to know this," and I haven't mentioned it, listen, pop us an e-mail. Pick us up the phone. Either way, you can use our live chat on our website, but either way, we'd love to see you as a customer. So, from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the tech team, appreciate your time and come back and visit us real soon. Take care now. Bye-bye.
