Recessed Contact with Rare Earth Magnet is a hardwired security sensor with a rare earth magnet. Use this contact with any wired alarm control panel. Recessed Contact with Rare Earth Magnet is very similar to the recessed contact, but instead of the regular magnet, you get a button type rare earth magnet with the Recessed Contact with Rare Earth Magnet. Rare earth magnets are much stronger than regular magnets so therefore, they can be much smaller. You don’t need to drill as big of a hole in your door or window for the magnet when installing a Recessed Contact recessed door and window contact.

Convenient Large Terminals for Easy Wiring.

Equipping the sensor with staggered terminals means that they can be bigger than normal. A larger screw terminal makes wiring the Recessed Contact much easier. With Staggered “T” terminals, you will never have to worry about splicing or soldering wire leads.

Each one comes with a door or window recessed contact and a button type rare earth magnet. The contact uses a Form A, SPST normally closed reed switch that is energized when the magnet is within 1/2”. As soon as the door or window opens, the magnet is pulled farther away than 1/2” and the contact opens causing an alarm back at the alarm control panel. The contact has a rating of 100mA at 28VDC. Also, uses screw terminals instead of wire leads to connect to a wired zone on your alarm control panel.

To install the recessed contact, you will need to drill a hole with 3/8” diameter into your door or window frame big enough to fit the entire Recessed Contact. You will also need to create a matching hole in the door or window directly opposite the contact to install the rare earth magnet. The button type magnet has a concave hole so that when you secure it to the door or window with a screw, it will be flush with the edge of the door or window. Be very careful when drilling your holes. You need to ensure that when the door or window shuts, the contact and magnet align and within 1/2” of each other.
