Low Energy Operators

What is the difference between a door closer and operator?

  • Door Operators assist with opening and closing doors. They often require electricity, but sometimes some operators have their own power supply. There are several types of door operators such as low energy operators and wave-to-open operators.
  • Door Closers purpose is to close doors and ensure that they are fully closed. They do not require electricity.

What is the difference between an electohydraulic and electromechanical door operator?

Electrohydraulic low energy operators incorporate a mechanical door closer for smooth reliable door control. These units are used in applications where doors are typically operated manually, but can also be activated via wall switches, motion sensors, etc., for automatic operation.

Electromechanical low energy operators feature a motor and gearbox for consistent automatic operation. These units are used in applications where automatic mode (activated by wall switches, motion sensors, etc.) is the primary function.

What is the maximum degree of door swing for any door operator?
The maximum degree of door swing is dependent on the operator arm and mounting.

Where can an operator be used?
Operators can be used in a variety of locations, such as a restroom, exam room, waiting room, main entrance and reception room.

What operators do you recommend for high traffic openings?
Our 6000 series and 6300 Series operators are heavy-duty units designed for rigorous, high-use applications.

Do you have touchless sensors?
Yes! The NORTON 5600 Series Hands-Free Kits combine a wave-to-open switch with the 5600 power operator to open the door and provide a ‘clean’ exit without touching hardware. However, these kits aren’t just for bathroom doors. They can also be used to provide easy access on non-fire rated examination room doors and doors in laboratories or rehabilitation facilities.

  • Door Closers purpose is to close doors and ensure that they are fully closed. They do not require electricity.

What is the guideline for push button actuators for low energy operators?
According to the 2007 edition of ANSI/BHMA A156.19 – American National Standard for Power Assist and Low Energy Power Operated Doors requires low energy operators to be initiated by a “knowing act”, which is described as “consciously initiating the powered opening of a low-energy door using acceptable methods, including: wall- or jamb-mounted contact switches such as push plates; fixed non-contact switches; the action of manual opening (pushing or pulling) a door; and controlled access devices such as keypads, card readers, and key switches.”

  • The guidelines for mounting actuators or push buttons are:
    • Located within 1-5 feet from the door, never more than 12 feet.
    • Remain accessible from the swing side when the door is opened.
    • Cannot be located in a position where the user would be in the path of a moving door.
    • Must be mounted so the user is in full sight of the door when activating the switch.
    • Must have a minimum installation height of 34” and a maximum 48” off the floor

Does the 6000 Series have an onboard power supply for accessories?
Yes, the onboard power support provides 24VDC at 1.3A for actuators, electric latch retraction exit devices, access control integration, and more.

What is the difference between high energy and low energy door operators?
High energy operators are designed for high traffic and high abuse openings, such as mall entrances or department stores. Low energy operators are actuated with wall switches, and open the door electrically.

Do you produce high energy operators?
No, Norton only manufactures low energy operators.

Where can an operator be used?
Operators can be used in a variety of locations, such as a restroom, exam room, waiting room, main entrance and reception room.

What operators do you recommend for high traffic openings?
Our 6000 series and 6300 Series operators are heavy-duty units designed for rigorous, high-use applications.

What is the door operator ‘blow open feature’ and how does it work?

When a signal from the fire alarm system is received, the door operator blow open feature will open the door to allow air or smoke to flow through the opening. The door will stay open until the signal from alarm system is stopped.

What is the door operator ‘hold open’ feature?

The hold open feature will delay closing the door for a specified period of time.
