Honeywell 7945 - XTP Surface Mount Magnetic Contact with Leads Reviews
Submitted on 09/17/2019 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell 7945 is an outstanding commercial-grade contact. It is perfect for use on commercial, industrial, and overhead doors. It is an extremely tough and durable sensor, and its 2.5 inch magnet spacing gap is very impressive. We recommend this contact for anyone need an commercial-grade sensor. That is why we give it a 5 Star Rating.
A unique aspect of the Honeywell 7945 is that it uses leads for connecting a wire instead of terminals. This will work better for users in certain situations, and it definitely gives the Honeywell 7945 an important niche in the market. These leads are specified as 6' CLII cable leads. You connect the two (2) wires from the sensor to the hardwired zone terminals like you would do for pretty much any hardwired contact sensor. Please note that this is a Form A, Normally Closed (NC) sensor.
One of the best aspects of the Honeywell 7945 is its excellent durability. It is a rugged sensor that is prepared to withstand the challenges of being used in commercial applications. The sensor can withstand power surges of up to 2400VDC. This helps prevent the sensor from becoming permanently damaged due to a fused reed switch. This can sometimes happen if the sensor is used in an outdoor environment. But you will not have to worry about that with the Honeywell 7945.
The sensor also possesses an impressive magnet spacing gap rating, as it allows for up to 2.5 inches of spacing between the sensor and magnet when the door is closed. This makes the sensor perfect for use on commercial doors where a larger than average spacing gap is required. Our technicians have found that the Honeywell 7945 works very well in many applications. We give the Honeywell 7945 Contact 5 Stars for its great versatility. We recommend it for anyone needing a contact with a large spacing gap.
