Complete Surface Mount Electric Strikes

Because no cut is required in the jamb, surface-mounted electric strikes have become a viable choice.


The HES 9400 is constructed of stainless steel with a removable cover that conceals the mounting screws. Four screws secure the cover to the electric strike body. Operational features of the 9400 are very similar to the 9600 except for the Pullman bolt throw that can be accommodated.

HES 9600, 9500 and 9400 electric strikes use plug-in connectors for the electrical connections. These include the SMART Pac™ II Power Controller, the Plug-in Bridge Rectifier, and the Plug-in Buzzer. The SMART Pac II Power Controller provides electronically regulated current from 12 to 32 volts for continuous duty operation without normal heat build-up. An adjustable minimum activation timer is built into this in-line power controller, as well as an in-line fuse and M.O.V. that protects the host system from reverse current surges.

HES electric strikes are equipped with elliptical shaped mounting holes. This enables horizontal adjustment of the electric strike body in order to alleviate pre-load.

Optional electronic features for the HES 9600, 9500 and 9400 electric strikes are latch bolt monitor and latch bolt strike monitor.

The HES 9600, 9500 and 9400 electric strikes come with a five-year limited warranty.

RCI 0162

The Rutherford Controls International Model 0162 surface mounted electric strike is designed for hollow metal, aluminum and wood door frames. The patented RCI 0162 is constructed with a stainless steel housing that is reinforced to eliminate twisting in case of imperfect frames. It meets or exceeds ANSI/BHMA A156.31 Grade 1 specifications and is UL1034 burglary listed. The 0162 has been factory tested for more than 4 million operational cycles and a keeper strength of more than 2,200 pounds.

The non-handed RCI 0162 is completely surface mounted. The contour shaped stainless steel body of the 0162 is 9” tall by 1-3/4” wide by 3/4“ thick. The one piece stainless steel “rolling” keeper is approximately 1-½” tall. The keeper accommodates Pullman latch exit devices with latch projections from 1/2” to 3/4” from most major exit device manufacturers. It is designed to provide even load distribution in the event of an attempted forced entry.

The RCI 0162 electric strike has two sets of mounting holes. The top and bottom holes are horizontally oblong in order to ensure proper latch alignment with up to 1/4” horizontal adjustment to compensate for misaligned doors. The two center lock down holes are for additional mounting to ensure the electric strike will stay secured onto the jamb in the event of attempted forced entry.

The Fail Secure coil is horizontally mounted to prevent manipulation from vibration. The armature of the coil provides more efficient movement for locking the keeper. In addition, a horizontally mounted coil is not affected by the handing of the electric strike.

The field selectable input is 12 or 24VDC or 11 to 24VAC. A four-wire lead extends from the electric strike. Two two-wire connectors are provided for the different voltages.

Alternating Current coils are for intermittent duty where the coil is energized for less than one minute. Direct Current coils are continuous duty and can be energized for more than one minute. AC powered coils emanate a buzz when powered. The RCI 0162 can accommodate intercom voltage of 16VAC to operate electric strike to provide common door or gate access.

Note: The 0162 can be equipped with a DC coil and unlocked by powering the coil for extended periods of time. If power is lost, the exit device becomes locked maintaining security.

For proper operation, there must be 1/16” horizontal clearance between front of the Pullman latch and the electric strike to avoid pressure on the keeper.

A 3/16” Allen Wrench is included to secure the four included mounting screws.

Accessories for the 0162 include a double door housing and a 1/16” mounting spacer kit.

The RCI 0162 has a five year limited warranty.

TRINE AXION 4800, 4801 AND 4850

The Trine Axion 4800 and 4850 are completely surface mounted electric strikes designed specifically for Pullman Bolt equipped rim exit devices. The Trine 4801 works with Corbin Russwin SecureBolt™ and Yale SquareBolt® Exit Devices. These two rim exit devices are equipped with a plunger type latch bolt, not a Pullman latch. The Trine Axion 4800 is designed to operate with up to a ¾” throw Pullman latch without modification. The Trine Axion 4850 is designed to operate with up to a ½” throw Pullman latch without modification.
