Background

We have discovered a potential issue concerning the use of the
PG
x303
PowerG Wireless
Magnetic Door/Window Contact. If this contact is installed in such a way that the magnet is
pulled away from the reed switch along the long edge of the contact, this may result in up to a

20-
second delay in
communicating the violation to t
he panel, and if the magnet

is restored prior
to communication, it
may result in the detector missing the violation. The issue is dependent
upon how quickly the magnet is removed from the device. If the magnet is removed slowly,
such as on a sliding door, it is more
possible
that the issue can
occur.

Status

We are working on the root cause of this potential issue as well as
corrective plans.

In the interim, please ensure that the PG
x303
PowerG Wireless M
agnetic Door/Window
Contact is
installed so that the magnet moves away from the reed switch on either the X or Z
axis, shown in the images
below.






To
minimize the potential occurrence of the issue, the PGx
303
PowerG Wireless Magnetic
Door/Window Contact
must be installed vertically on a door that slides open horizontally, or
horizontally on a window that slides open vertically.
