Assa's Lowest Power Draw Maglock: Securitron M680E Examined

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Feb 14, 2018

Securitron produces some of the most extreme maglocks on the market, including massively strong maglocks and even ones with integrated CCTV cams inside them.

Now the company is touting one of their newest maglocks, the M680E, using only 52 milliamps compared to typical maglocks often using 4 times more power.

Inside, we take a deeper look at the lock, contrast it against other maglocks, and see where paying the premium price may be worthwhile or not.
