How Do I Install A Honeywell 5816 Sensor
Before installing the 5816 transmitter,conduct a Go/No Go test to verify signal strength.
Once the signal strength has been verified, use the finger latch to remove the 5816’s cover.
Separate the mounting plate by releasing the locking tab while sliding the plate downward along the back case.
If a wired contact loop is being used, feed the wires through the entry hole at one corner of the mounting plate.
With the holding posts pointing up mount the plate using the included flat head screws. The 5816 may be installed in any direction, as long as the relationship of the sensor, mounting plate and magnet is maintained. The magnet needs to be installed to the right of the sensor.
The 5816 has two unique zones; the first is for a wired closed circuit contact loop and the second for its built-in reed switch used in conjunction with a magnet. Either or both zones may be used. For UL installations, a contact may not be more than 3 feet from the transmitter.
With the battery still not inserted, connect the contact loop if being used to the unit’s loop terminals. The contact loop must use closed circuit devices. The loop response time is a nominal 100mSec. If the unit’s reed switch is to be used,mount the magnet adjacent to the alignment marks on the case and the mounting plate’s alignment strip at maximum ½ inch separation. If the contact loop is not to be used, no connection is needed across its terminals.
Insert the battery (CR123A)observing the correct polarity.
Attach the back of the to the mounting plate by sliding the keyhole slots down onto the mounting plate’s case holding posts. The locking tab will click as the back locks in place.
The 5816 transmitter has its own unique 7 digit serial number which is assigned during manufacture. The 5816 must be “enrolled” in the control panel to be active.
