The DE6SC is designed to alert a user if an unauthorised attempt is made to access a door, particularly when free egress is required. The unit emits an infrared beam down towards a panic bar or lever. A small piece of reflective tape is placed on either of these two devices and when an attempt is made to push the panic bar or lever, the DE6SC will trigger an alarm. After 15 seconds the DE6SC releases the electronic locking mechanism thereby unlocking the door. The alarm continues to sound giving someone the opportunity to investigate the security breach. The unit is reset by disconnecting the power, this can be achieved through a keyswitch or access control panel. The delayed exit operation of the DE6SC will be overridden in the event of a fire alarm or duress. The ability to override the delay is what makes the DE6SC suitable for the locking of fire door or general emergency exits.

Specification Statement
The Delayed Egress System must be "Deemed to satisfy" the relevant sections of the Building Code of Australia. The system should be capable of integration with the building fire system where activation of the fire system will directly and immediately release the lock.

An audible alarm should indicate to a person wishing to exit that a delay before door release is active and a distinctive change of this audible alarm would indicate the door is available for immediate exit. The delaying circuits should also be suitable for instant by-pass if an emergency pushbutton is fitted adjacent to the door.

Full monitoring of lock status and door position should be available from within the system. Resetting of a released door should be by a local key re-set or remotely re-settable depending on site requirements.
