The Door/Window Position Sensor
is a frame-mounted sensor that detects the open or closed position of a
door or window. When the door or window is open, the sensor sends status
data to the control panel indicating the open position. Likewise, when the
door or window is closed, the sensor sends data to the control panel
indicating the closed position.
The door/window sensor can be used in
Remote Control, Annunciation systems, and in
Energy Management applications.
Reasons to Choose this Sensor
The door/window sensor provides some important
advantages. The detector reduces installation labor by its special design.
By including an addressable zone expansion device right inside, using this
sensor dramatically reduces the overall cost of the entire system.
Cabling requirements are minimized because the
sensor cable need not be individually routed to the control panel. The
sensor cable is an addressable bus that allows connection to many devices
before cabling and connecting to the control panel for processing.
The sensor is sealed with epoxy within its
case to overcome issues related to temperature changes and shock
The sensor is protected against transients,
helping the sensor to overcome voltage spikes caused by lightning or
It saves costs by saving current, and
minimizes the need for additional power supplies because of its low
