Question:

I have an existing EAC system in place and would like to wire it into my automatic door opener. I want to know how I should be converting from wet to dry power signal on an electric strike so I am able to wire it into my operator?

 

Answer:

Converting the wet [power] signal into a dry signal requires a specific type of relay called a switching relay. There are several options such as the Camden CX-22 or the Alrontix RBSNTTL that will work in this application. Simply wiring this relay with the wet [power] signal into the inputs the relay will consume the power supplied by the EAC to power itself and send a dry signal to the output. This gives you the dry signal required to wire into your operator as an activation signal.
