What are the Falcon T lock electrical requirements?

As of June 2011 the electrified T locks can support 12 or 24 Volts.  You do not need to specify 12 or 24 when ordering since the solenoid is capable of either voltage out of the box.  The electrical requirements are as follows:

  • .65 AMP @ 12 VDC and 18.5 OHMS +/- 5%
  • .32 AMP @ 24 VDC and 74 OHMS +/- 5%

Updated wiring diagram here- (Current 4 wire version.) Wire colors are Blue, Red, White, Black.  Connect wires according to the updated wiring diagram for 12 or 24V configuration. 

Prior to June 2011 the T lock only supported 24V and the electrical requirements were as follows:

  • 0.185 amp @ 24VDC
  • Wire Gage 22 AWG

See wiring diagram here - (Previous 2 wire version) Wire color is red.
