Electromagnetic Lock 12VDC (101876)


This is a small size electromagnetic lock which can operate with 12V power. It is super simple to use, just give a power, then the slug will be pulled inside (unlock), releasing the power the slug will return back to the original position (lock).

The lock come with the slanted slug, you can easily open it with the two Phillips-head screws and turn it around so its rotated 90, 180 or 270 degrees so that it matches the door you want to use it with.

When we use MCU to control this lock, we need an external 12VDC power to drive the lock. Here we have a DC-DC booster module, it can boost 5V to 12V, and it has a pin that you can connect to MCU’s GPIO, trig a HIGH level it will output, LOW level to turn it off. Check the video below:


  • Operation Voltage: 12V DC
  • Unlock Current: 0.8A
  • Suggested Continuously Unlock Time: within 10 seconds
  • Weight: 149.1g
  • Dimension

Code for the video:


const int PowerPin = 8;

void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
    pinMode(PowerPin, OUTPUT);

void loop() {
digitalWrite(PowerPin, HIGH);
digitalWrite(PowerPin, LOW);
