Tech Tip 

MS-1039 and MS-1059 Tech Tip


As a door position switch, the MS-1039 / 1059 is a great tool to trigger an alarm or signal security when an unauthorized entry or exit occurs.  However a magnetic door contact alone can only indicate if a door is open or closed and cannot indicate if a door is secure.


To insure your doors are secure, use the MS-1039 / 1059 with an exit device that is equipped with a latch bolt monitoring switch, such as the Advantex Latch Retraction with latch bolt switch (10xERxLX).  Typically used with access control applications, the MS-1039 / 1059 along with the Advantex ER x LX can help insure that your doors are secure.  When wired in series, these two products in combination provide a great answer to applications that require a higher level of security.  When the door appears closed, but the latch is not secure, a signal can be sent to a multi-zone annunciator panel, door prop alarm or other security circuit, notifying supervisors that a door is not secure and immediate attention is required.
