QEL-98EO (Exit Only) - Rim Exit Device by Von Duprin

Quiet electric latch retraction (QEL) provides electronic control of an exit device for environments where limited operational noise is desired. The QEL option is Von Duprin's solution of choice for hospitals, libraries, museums and theaters where ambient noise can be disruptive. Exit only, no outside operation. Trim sold separately.

These devices always provide mechanical egress. The electrified latch retraction can also be activated by an access sytem or building automation system to unlatch the exit device momentarily. Often the QEL is used with a credential reader and access control system to unlock the door momentarily for authorized users.

The QEL can also be configured to electronically retract the latch for an extended period of time to allow free entry. This is a convenient alternative to mechanical dogging.
