External Powered Wall Mount Exit Alarm With 4 Minute Arming Delay/Non-Extended Bypass

The Detex EAX-2545 Series Exit Alarm is designed for applications requiring a hardwired AC/DC alarm on secure doors. The alarm, with approximately 100dB, will sound when an unauthorized exit occurs. The smaller size of the EAX-2545, which is designed to fit in a standard 4"x4" outlet box, makes it the choice for quick and easy installations on emergency exit and restricted doors.

  • 100dB piezo horn provides security for restricted doors
  • Easy to install using ordinary tools to save time and money
  • Tamper resistant housing and cover protects electronics
  • Surface and flush mount available using 4"x4" double switch/outlet box
  • AC/DC hardwired power with option 9VDC backup battery
  • 4 minute Arming Delay - Door(s) can be opened and closed repeatedly during the 4 minute Arming Delay. At the end of Arming Delay, if doors are open, alarm sounds. If doors are closed, alarm automatically rearms
  • Low battery alert and silent arming feature is field selectable

Tech Tip     

The EAX-2545 does not have a cover lock, but rather uses a tamper switch to guard against tampering.  To replace the battery or service the EAX-2545, the alarm must be disarmed with the key, prior to removing the cover.  If anyone attempts to remove the cover while the alarm is armed, the unit will sound alerting those nearby that someone is tampering with the alarm.
The cover screws are 2 1/8" long and are required to hold the tamper plunger lever to the rear. If you have the faceplate removed while servicing the alarm, you must push the tamper plunger lever to the rear away from the faceplate before arming the EAX-2545 or the alarm will sound. One of the most common troubleshooting calls regarding the EAX-2545 is the report of false alarms and the most typical resolution to this problem is the tamper plunger lever not being held in the correct position.
Only hand tighten the cover screws. If you use a power driver and over torque the cover screws, you may warp the faceplate and adversely affect operation.
