The XP fire door release device provides a fail-safe release mechanism for non-motorized doors and acts as an interface between the door and the fire alarm system. The device required 24VDC power from an approved UL1481 regulated power supply with battery backup, such as a fire alarm control panel. Therefore, installation will require coordination with a fire panel installer.

LM21XP Owners Manuals

  • UL864 Revision 9 compliant
  • Programmable DIP switch delay setting – either 10, 20, 30 or 60 seconds delay of door release to permit passageway clearance
  • Close door detection – prevents door release if the door is kept in the closed position and eliminates door reset service calls or potential system damage
  • On board diagnostic – LEDs for early troubleshooting
  • Testing function – allows routine fire door testing without requiring activation of the central alarm system; easy reset function returns the device to a standby state

Versatility allows the XPBB fire door release device to operate on 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC power sources. Internal battery backup allows the release device to stand alone from the fire alarm system and act independently in the event of a power outage. The system can provide 24VDC power for up to four smoke detectors and two horn/strobes, mounted on either side of the door. Programmable delay settings, close door detection, diagnostic LEDs, localized testing, and reset capabilities are also standard.
