Should I use Snubber circuits with MAGLOCKS?

Yes, absolutely.

The Snubber circuit eliminates abnormal and harmful reactive current surges through wet and output relays.

Without Snubber circuits, relays will not or eventually fail after experiencing relay jitter (for dry contact relays) and/or raised ground voltage levels (through wet relays causing abnormal electronic operational failures).

These reactive effects increase with increasing magnetic flux (the core holding strength to MAGLOCK systems).
