Unit opens and closes electrically while deadlocking in each direction. If stopped in mid- travel, the door is back-drivable. Unit may be instantly reversed.  Door blockage will not cause motor damage. Door pressure is adjustable from approximately 40 lbs. Emergency release allows the door to be moved against slight motor pressure and is never free- wheeling


The SC-2000 cell device is a motorized sliding door device that provides electrical opening and closing of an individual cell door.

The door is powered by means of push buttons or a selector switch. When the door is opened or closed, it may be stopped in mid- travel. During that period, the door may be manually moved open or closed by applying a slight force on the door. The door may also be instantly reversed without any harm to the mechanism.  

Upon fully opening or closing, the door is locked at two concealed points at the vertical lock column. The locking rod is also fully deadlocked preventing the rod from being manipulated. No locking components are exposed.

During a power loss, the SC-2000 may be mechanically released by key, at which point the door may be moved to an open or closed position.
