Installation Instructions

Description

The 2300 Series is designed for use with sectional/panel overhead doors that use metal roller tracks. The contact fits roller tracks up to 3 inches wide.

Selecting a Location

Use the following guidelines to select a location for the contact:

• Mount the switch high enough so the cable is off the floor.  If other track-mounted devices interfere, mount the switch under them.

• Locate the magnet away from handles and latches to prevent it from being used as a foothold or a handle to close the door.

Installing the Contact

1. Run the security system wiring to the switch location.

2. Place the switch over the door track.  See Figure 1.

3. Slide the beveled edge of the L-bracket into the slot of the switch until it snaps firmly in place. Tighten the screw on the switch down firmly.

-The magnet must be 1/4  to 1/2 inch away from the switch.  See Figure 3.

-The magnet can be attached at two different elevations from the door.  See Figure 3.
