CX The Chexit™Designed for use on delayed exit applications, the Chexit system is ideal for controlled areas.
All controls, auxiliary locking, local alarm, and remote signalling are self-contained in the Chexit, providing safe, secure, easy to install and simple to operate door control and exit hardware.
Chexit controlled exit device for use on Panic or Fire Exit hardware applications.
This concept in delayed exit systems combines life safety with the needs of security and meets all requirements of NFPA 101 for “Special Locking Arrangement.”
The Chexit device includes a 6" x 20" decal for application on door.
“PUSH UNTIL ALARM SOUNDS. DOOR CAN BE OPENED IN 15 SECONDS”
Minimum width door opening:
Consult factory for other size requirements.
Requires PS914 Power Supply
Request to Exit Switch: Built into the device to detect when someone attempts to exit. Pushing the push pad when the device is armed will cause this switch to start an irreversible alarm cycle.
Nuisance Alarm: When a Chexit is located in a public area, it can be desireable to limit false alarms. If the Nuisance Delay options are set to off, the device will go into alarm as soon as the push pad is touched (when armed). Turning the Nuisance Delay on will require the push pad to be pressed for 1 second before the Chexit goes into alarm. If the Nuisance Audible and Nuisance Delay are both on, the alarm will sound as soon as the push pad is pressed, but the alarm sequence will stop unless the push pad is held for 1 second or more.
Remote Alarm: A set of relay contacts are provided to give external alarm indication. These contacts close when the device is in an irreversible alarm condition. These contacts can be used to drive a horn, lamp, or other indicative device.
Key Switch: The Key Switch provides the means to arm, disarm or reset the Chexit. The key can be removed in either the Arm or Disarm position.
Indicator Lamp: The status of the Chexit can be determined by the indicator lamp. When the lamp is off, this indicates the device is disarmed and is functioning as a normal exit device (no delay). A continuously on lamp indicates the device has just been armed and as soon as the selectable rearm timer expires, the device will arm. A slow flashing lamp indicates the device is armed. A fast flashing indicator lamp indicates the device is in alarm.
Internal Horn: Whenever the device is in alarm or the push pad is pressed the internal horn will sound. The volume level of this horn exceeds 85 db at 6 feet.
Door Position Input:An external door position switch can be connected to the Chexit.
External Inhibit Input: This optional input is provided to allow remote override of the Chexit in the armed condition. It also allows remote reset of the Chexit in an alarmed condition.
Fire Alarm Input:This input disables the Chexit immediately upon a fire alarm.
Internal Auxiliary Lock: The Auxiliary Lock is engaged when the Chexit is armed. The locking mechanism is specifically designed to hold securely even when the exit device is struck with forceful blows.
User Defineable Rearm Time: The Rearm time is the amount of time after the device is activated before it arms. It is designed to give someone time to pass through the door before rearming oocurs. Timing can be changed by the user for any time between 2 and 28 seconds in two second increments. There is also an infinite rearm setting that requires the use of an external door position switch. In this setting the door remains in the rearm mode until the door is closed. This can be useful on jet way doors in an airport.
Factory Defineable Delay Time: Most jurisdictions allow 15 seconds of delay before allowing egress. In those cases where 15 seconds is not appropriate, Von Duprin can set the Chexit for any delay time between 0 and 60 seconds on 2 second increments. For delays greater than 15 seconds a letter from the local authority is required.
Chexit Typical ApplicationChexit Single Door with Options – The Chexit is used as an access control device. The card reader allows access. Also shown in this application is an external horn and door position switch. The auxiliary horn is used for increased volume in remote locations. Using a door position switch gives added security to the opening in case the door is not reclosed.
With the Chexit disarmed, the opening functions as a normal exit device. If card readers are required on both sides of the door, the normally closed contacts of the readers should be weird in series.
ALK Alarm KitThe ALK battery alarm kit is a simple yet effective way to deter unauthorized use of an opening. While the exit device is still a means of egress, the ALK kit contains an internal horn. When the touch bar is depressed, the horn sounds to provide an audible means of signaling that the opening has been violated. The alarm kit can be armed or disarmed by key. The horn is rated at 85 decibel.
For Hardware Applications The assembly includes both a 24VDC Input and External Inhibit. The External Inhibit provides remote arming and dis-arming.
The key switch uses a standard 1 1/4" (32mm) mortise cylinder with a straight cam (Schlage 20-001, B502-191 cam). The unit operates on one standard 9-volt alkaline battery. When the battery is weak, the horn will emit an intermittent low battery alert signal.
The alarm can be re-armed with a 1 1/2, 3 or 4 1/2 second time delay.
Alarm kits are available with a choice of two switch kits, RX or LX. RX monitors the touchpad and is furnished standard. LX optional latch bolt monitoring is recommended for use with surface vertical rod exit devices. Specify ALK-LX.
Note: For latch bolt monitoring on a 98/9975 with ALK, specify a SS7500 lock. LX switch not available for 98/9975 devices.
The ALK is available in two styles, 99ALK, grooved cover and 98ALK, smooth cover.
The ALK includes a 6" x 20" decal for application on door “EMERGENCY EXIT ONLY. ALARM WILL SOUND. ”SS push bar trim can be used instead of the door decal, specify SS push bar trim.
When the ALK is used, standard dogging is removed. If cylinder dogging is required there are two choices. Special center case dogging is available or for 3' or 4' doors the ALK can be moved to the hinge side of the device and standard cylinder dogging can be added.

E Electric Mortise Lock DeviceThe electric mortise lock device has all the versatility and advantages of the standard mortise lock device, plus the advantage of being electrically controlled by a remote switching device, an access control system or an automatic fire alarm system. The device features the E7500 mortise lock. The E7500 controls the locking of the outside trim. When unlocked, the door remains latched, preserving the fire rating of the door and making it particularly useful where codes permit locking but require unlocking during a fire emergency. The outside trim cylinder retracts the latch bolt for mechanical override, night latch function. Only available with TP, K or L functions.
The E7500 lock contains a SPDT signal to monitor the outside trim condition (locked or unlocked) and a second SPDT signal switch to monitor the latch bolt.
Note: Some Fire codes will require “Fail Safe” (FS) operation for stairwell doors.Be sure to specify the correct operation for your application.
The E option does not include the power transfer from door to frame, the power supply or the control operator. (Refer to EPT-10 and PS902 or PS914 power supply)

98/99 Mechanical Options
XP Extra PerformanceFor increased security the XP98/99 Rim Exit Device has a static load force resistance of more than 2,000 pounds, twice that of standard exit devices. The two-piece latch bolt forms a 90° latch-to-strike contact. The “smart” latch changes shape when subjected to external forces. This design enables the exit door to withstand an external attack and remain secure. Additionally, the patented latch bolt design provides a greater, longer-lasting latch bolt to strike contact which is not easily affected by the twisting motion of a weakened frame, resulting in an opening that will remain strong.
With a door loaded to 250 pounds, XP98/99 requires less than 40 pounds of pressure to open, 25% less than the safety code requires.
XP98/99 is available for panic or fire exit hardware applications. Dimensions, finishes and trim options are equal to the standard rim exit device.
