A magnetically operated contact sensor suitable for doors and windows.

DiscoverBus™ Wireless Contact Sensor

About the product:

The contact sensor forms the basis of safety and security systems, being used to detect the opening or closing of doors and windows. The basic detection mechanism uses a magnet, commonly mounted on the door and a reed switch sensor on the door frame that closes when the magnet is within detection range. Opening the door moves the magnet out of range of the reed switch and the open event is detected. An alert is transmitted on every state change, ensuring the state is always known. Contact sensors often use more power in one state than another and have slow response times to minimise consumption. However, this sensor has a unique circuit that ensures ultra-low power consumption irrespective of the open or closed state, while not compromising response times.
