Not only is this PTH (Power Transfer Hinge) stronger and able to withstand more inrush than any other electric hinge on the market, but it is also independently tested to over 800,000 cycles on average before a wire breaks or goes to ground. That is 8 times the UL requirement of 100,000 cycles typical for most products on the market.
This hinge is also burn tested and UL10C listed for use on fire rated doors and frames. Marray was the first with such a listing.
Low Voltage Rating:
TEF2+4C, 16 amp surge, 5 sec., (18 awg pair) 12 or 24 Volt AC/DC, 100 m/amp 28 awg wires
TEF10C, 1 amp one pair, 100 m/amp remaining pairs, 12 or 24 Volt AC/DC
TEF2+10C, 16 amp surge, 5 sec., (18 awg pair) 12 or 24 Volt AC/DC, 100 m/amp 28 awg wires
After a standard hinge is modified, it no longer meets ANSI 156.1, or NFPA 80 and must be re-tested to ensure it will not default in a fire situation. Be sure when you order hinges for your listed doors that you install hardware that is fire listed. This will benefit you by ensuring that you do not de-listed and de-certified a fire listed door by not providing the proper listed hardware.
Most jurisdictions will begin annual fire door inspections under the 2007 edition of NFPA 80. If your hinge is not listed for fire, you may have to replace the door. Marray maintains a very large inventory of these hinges for same day shipment.
