This European standard specifies requirements for the manufacture; performance and testing of electrically controlled exit systems, designed for use on escape routes. These systems consist of at least the following elements:- Initiating element for requesting the release of electrical locking element in order to exit;- Electrical locking element for securing an exit door;- Electrical controlling element for supplying, connecting and controlling electrical locking element and initiating element. In addition, these electrically controlled exit systems can include time delay and/or denied exit mode. This European Standard covers electrically controlled exit systems placed on the market as a complete unit (e.g. mortise lock, lever handle, keeper, initiating element, electrical locking element, electrical controlling element, etc.). The components are tested as a single product. This European Standard covers electrically controlled exit systems which are either manufactured and placed on the market in their entirety by one manufacturer or assembled from sub-assemblies produced by more than one manufacturer and subsequently placed on the market as a kit in a single transaction. The suitability of an electrically controlled exit system for use on fire/smoke resisting door assemblies is determined by fire performance tests conducted in addition to the performance tests required by this European Standard.
