The new motor driven ND electrified locks shipped after March 14, 2016 do not require a solenoid. The Schlage ND-Series electrified locks shipped prior to March 14, 2016 would have used a...
To check an ME or SE solenoid Unplug the solenoid from the circuit board. Measure resistance across the 2 pin of the solenoid connector. The solenoid resistance should read: 24 volt solenoi...
The resistance readings for a Falcon 24 or 25 Series EL solenoid should read;Green to Yellow = Pull Coil, should measure between 1 and 2 ohms of resistance. Green to Orange = Hold Coil, s...
The best way to test the Von Duprin EL solenoid is with an ohm meter. You must test both coils to make sure the solenoid is good. The coil has three wires; green, yellow, and orange. The green...
You can't run 24VDC into the 12VDC electric strike, over voltage such as this will cause the solenoid to heat up and damage the solenoid.  You must change to a 24V solenoid, part number 050240-00.
24 volt version draws 90 mAmps (0.090A). 120 volt version draws 30 mAmps (0.030A).
